These comments about her drinking really irritate me. I sat in her suite for football games plenty of times during her tenure. Alcohol is not even served. I never saw anything other than respectable and upstanding behavior from her during games. She was always engaging and made it a point to visit with everyone in the suite. To be very clear, I was not in her suite for the game in question, but I find it difficult to believe that she could even have access to the quantity of alcohol needed to get as hammered as the internet has now convicted her of.
In addition, this very blog demonstrated compellingly (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/microphone-feedback-caused-msc-slur) in the days after the incident that she had not been drinking (eyewitness accounts from people who were with her at the game, etc) and that in all likelihood the delay caused the slow cadence and slurring of words. Specifically, she heard her own words with slight delay as she was trying to give the remarks. It is very confusing to the speaker.
I know some people just like to troll and it bugs me that these comments get a rise out of me. I too was bothered by the description of her support for DB in JUB's book. And, I know as a public official that her every action and comment is subject to criticism. However, I think she was an outstanding president for the university and I don't think characterizing her as a drunk or a party gal does us, this board, or the university any good. It's ok to be disappointed in the DB chapter of her tenure, but let's not engage in the collective defaming who has done an enormous amount of good for the Univeristy of Michigan community.

I came in last year and stayed at a Metro Airport hotel. I wanna say I paid like $49. I think it was the Knights Inn. My friends called it "the crime scene".

Anyone else listen to the Mike O'Meara podcast? It is impossible not to think of Li'l Jabril, done in President Obama's voice, when Peppers is discussed.

Weirdly uninspired playcalling. I want to believe that it is early in the season and the team will gel, but it looks quite similar to last year. At least, those parts I haven't forcibly erased from my memory.

Pass protection is pretty good. Looks like Rudock is getting some good looks. He seems more...vibrant so far this half.
