Not taking a position on the spat, just like it when people do their homework.

Mmmmm... Mongo like candy.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Uhhhh....||
No, it wouldn't be.
|4 days 4 hours ago||"For Serious?""||
would be an even better option. Also, "You So Crazy" and "Ninja, Please!"

because the time he supposedly "stood up for" one of his players against a newspaper's criticism and made the famous "I'm 40" rant was a complete sham designed to create the effect that he's willing to look crazy to defend his players. There were some enlightening follow-ups with the actual player at issue who said Gundy basically screwed him over repeatedly during his career at OSU, and constructed the "I'm 40" rant specifically to make it look as though he had his players' backs. If I could keep my eyes open at this point, I'd do some Googling and find the cites, but suffice to say Gundy isn't as bad as this Lunt episode makes him look. He's much worse.
|1 week 2 days ago||I saw how long it was and had absolutely no intention of reading||
the whole thing, particularly given that I've never heard of the website. But I got caught up in it. After finishing, I think it's as fitting an "epitaph" for a remarkable career as I can imagine. Thanks for the link, that was time well spent.
Will be hard to forgive Denard for one thing, though: making me want to watch Jacksonville Jaguar games this fall. The very idea is grotesque to me, yet... I don't see what choice I have. Damn you, #16. Damn you.

would certainly beg to differ vis-a-vis "things would go back to normal" after the death penalty year.
The idea that PSU's sanctions were worse, as bad as, or even within an order of magnitude as severe as the death penalty is just... wow. Mind-boggling.
|1 week 2 days ago||Excellent, good news about McDowell.||
Rivals is also saying he may be bumping up to 5-star when all is said and done.
Re: thread meltdown...
|1 week 3 days ago||I didn't notice your points||
because your avatar kinda distracts my eyes from the numbers.
|1 week 3 days ago||Seriously, what is people's fascination||
with the Forbidden Closet of Mystery?
|1 week 4 days ago||Yikes.||
After watching the highlights, what does a kid have to do to get a 6th star?
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||I have to admit||
I have no idea what you're even talking about, which more or less proves your point. I even tried Googling "University of Alabama President Segregration" and all I got was page after page of George Wallace hits.
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||Your real error||
was arguing with anyone in the comments section of anything. No one has ever been persuaded of anything in a website comments section. Ever. Right?
Oh, wait... crap.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I was wondering if there would be comments about that.||
I have this same map/graph in a frame. It was handed out at a seminar I attended by the great guru of graphing and visual information, Edward Tufte. I really do hope people take a close look at that thing and think about what it's representing, otherwise it just looks like a bit of esoteric art. http://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/posters

This made my morning.
Chris Rock had this bit where he talked about how the father in the Jackson family used to beat his kids. "I understand whooping Michael. And I definitely understand beating La Toya's ass. But why you gotta hit Tito?? TITO NEVER HURT NOBODY!"
As for Hand, sounds like a kid with his feet firmly planted on the ground. Good for him. Hope we don't lose him to Southfield.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||All Michigan fans should take the high road.||
I know we're all disappointed, but show some grace and wish the kid well. I wish him good luck in all games except when Michigan plays Southfield.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||That was the only bowl game I remember||
where I genuinely believed the refs repeatedly lost the game for Michigan. Not just here or there, but all over that game with the pass interference calls and such.
Still, LATERAL THE BALL TO BREASTON ARRRRRRRRRRGH. The one time the refs kept the hankies in the pockets (at least to call it on Michigan, Nebraska was flagged for too many on the field ala Stanford).
|3 weeks 1 day ago||You're paying for the poster.||
It's the book that's included free.
But seriously, agree with the general gist of the comments; it's not like Tom Gholston "wrote" a book. Cousins was a tough competitor and seemed like a decent dude and I don't remember ever having a reason to dislike the guy apart from his choice of teams.
It's not like I'm going to go to Amazon and neg his book just cause the SOB wrote an inaccurate hit job piece on Michigan's football program a few years ago rumble rumble NON-COUNTABLE HOURS rumble rumble ARE YOU SHITTING ME rumble rumble.
Excuse me, I have to go here for a minute:
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'm going to go ahead and guess||
you've never followed the Detroit Lions.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||What did you lose||
the other 979,595 points for?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||This post made me feel guilty||
..about playing the "didn't get into Michigan" card on Sparty. Fair point. Damn you.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Aha||
There's the threat.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||and the obvious||
-getting into Michigan St,, realizing you're probably going there
-realizing you forgot to bring your matches to the after-game couch party
|3 weeks 1 day ago||If memory serves||
Legendary Ohio TE Giovanni Strassini did the same thing.
At least that's what he told my cousin who went to Ohio when he was signing autographs at an alumni event. I have been unable to verify via internets, which weirdly has no record of such a dude playing for Ohio.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||For the win.||
Ask Heiko to write this on a slip of paper and hand it to Gorgeous Al next time he sees him.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yep.||
Word, Basil Fawlty. Word.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Guilty laugh.||
It's such a douchey thing to say, yet still funny... sometimes I think the Michigan motto should be "Michigan: We're Almost As Arrogant As You Think We Are"
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I always had the same reaction||
to things like "Happy Easter" and such, where the underlying event is solemn and respectful of the departed. But, English being such a relatively limited language, not sure what the alternative is. At least nobody says "Happy Pearl Harbor Day!" or "Happy 9/11!" yet. Yet. Matter of time til "Macy's Big 9/11 Sale!"
Kinda wish department stores didn't just turn it into another day for a big sale, but hey, it's a free country... mostly because of the people we're supposed to be remembering.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||or Jabrill even||
Going to take me a while to get used to that one as I'm so used to seeing Jibreel. They're both anglicized to "Gabriel" if memory serves. Anyway, I reiterate my point. Damn, ESPN white dude. The Brady Bunch thinks you're awkward around people of color.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I thought he was going to say||
"Who let the dogs out?"
And Jibreel was going to awkwardly say "uh, yeah" while tugging at his collar.
Seriously, that ESPN dude made this dude:
Look like this dude:
He made this, uh, dude:
Look like this dude:
In fact, I'd go so far as to say that dude made this dude:
Look like this dude:
