I'm shocked there would be any other response on a Michigan blog.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||They're still weird and a bad||
They're still weird and a bad fit for the B1G.
|15 weeks 5 hours ago||He's a football coach. I'd be||
He's a football coach. I'd be surprised if his stance on global affairs wasn't somewhat simplistic and uncritically patriotic.
|18 weeks 3 hours ago||Where's the love for the B1G?||
Where's the love for the B1G? I want two B1G teams in the elite 8. Sparty going any further would be insufferable, but I have no problem pulling for Wisky the whole way.
The teams I'm rooting against most strongly are ND and Kentucky, both for pretty obvious reasons.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Since you asked: Jerseys||
Since you asked:
Jerseys without exception fit horribly. And a good-fitting jersey would look even worse. I think they look childish even in the US, a country where grown men let's face it often dress like teenagers (t-shirts with stuff on them, baseball caps, sneakers, and so on).
But I suppose they fit in with the overall football environment, whose coaches are in general horrible dressers, haha.

and mercifully absent of tedious debates

The perfect response
|24 weeks 59 min ago||Both seem real.||
Both seem real.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||I know, right? I mean,||
I know, right? I mean, Harbaugh has to select his defensive staff before it gets to this.
|32 weeks 3 hours ago||Hackett is really, really||
Hackett is really, really growing on me.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||No that's wrong information.||
No that's wrong information. According to Colin Cowherd, we already hired a coach the weekend before last, and it was apparently a guy we hadn't heard before but that we're really happy with now.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Oh, wrong playoffs||
Oh, wrong playoffs
|33 weeks 1 hour ago||I do not think that's a fair||
I do not think that's a fair characterization of Brian. Everyone has preferences and idiosyncrasies, just like everyone murders and steals, but I think Brian has shown an open willingness to go back and revise previous positions.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||For "twenty-first century,"||
For "twenty-first century," read: spread option offense plus indifferent (at best) defense.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||And Charles Dickens (with a||
And Charles Dickens (with a heavy dose of American consumerism-on-steroids added)
|33 weeks 5 days ago||I think he's referring to||
I think he's referring to Mullen (who gave RR his final loss at Michigan).
|33 weeks 5 days ago||It's Pete Carroll.||
It's Pete Carroll.
|33 weeks 5 days ago||I read Brian's piece, then I||
I read Brian's piece, then I read your piece. It's amazing the different narratives that can be made from the same material.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||As would Mullen.||
As would Mullen.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Just because he's a CEO||
Just because he's a CEO doesn't mean he's a villain who will see Michigan athletics as a grand marketing venture. Granted, it increases the chances, but I don't see any reason not to give Hackett the benefit of the doubt.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Exactly. There was no||
Exactly. There was no indication the defense would improve at all if given a year 4; in fact, there is every indication it would've been even worse.
Once Rodriguez and his yahoo friends started meddling with Shafer's defense and then later fired Shafer, it was over. Everything else was just epilogue. Even with Denard goddam Robinson Michigan under RR posed no threat to competent teams.

Thanks for spelling wierd the write way this thyme.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Jim Harbaugh will take over||
Jim Harbaugh will take over the basketball team in addition to the football team.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Downvoted for using "USCe."||
Downvoted for using "USCe." Just say South Carolina. It's not that bad.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||I'd most want to have a beer||
I'd most want to have a beer with His Dudeness, Section 1, and Bando Clarissian.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Players always, always||
Players always, always support whoever is their coach/AD. Thankfully, they have no power to make decisions regarding these people.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||I think he used it the right||
I think he used it the right way.
But yeah, it's a phrase I don't use.
|39 weeks 2 hours ago||I'm trying really, really||
I'm trying really, really hard not to get my hopes up, but it's not working.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||I guess I disagree (and I||
I guess I disagree (and I disagree with Brian's prohibition of the term, for what it's worth). I really think the staying power of the phrase is due to the way it perfectly encapsulates the psychology of State's inferiority complex (and the way State lashes out to make up for this).
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Yes yes, we know that this||
Yes yes, we know that this kind of thing gives Dantonio (and many Sparty fans) a reason to live.
Hey, is your use of uddered an intentional pun?
