Nice phoys Upchurch! They really show the glory of the Maize color.
I know it was only UNLV, but this felt like the Michigan Football I grew up with.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for some sane perspective.||
Taking this tragedy and heroism as an opportunity for ignorant nativist french-bashing is embarassing to read. Interesting how the supposed "no politics" rule of this site really means only "no politics that challenge the dominant paradigm". Semper Fi, Vive la France and Go Blue.
|39 weeks 3 days ago||I'd like to hear this prediction||
from anyone who predicted 5-7 for 2014.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for the info.||
I would not have guessed that recently.
I guess I really meant all upper classmen with starting experience to start the season. My guess is it's rare.
(I'm too lazy to look these things up, and folks here know there stuff...)
|39 weeks 4 days ago||An O line full of upper classmen?||
What a rare luxury these days.
When was the last time that was the case?
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Screw the SEC||
I hate them worse than I hate OSU.
Now let's get back to where UM is beating Alabama.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||Conway's Game of Life...||
Forgive me if I'm late to the party, but I see the elements in this gif. Nice job. The Harbaugh Puffer! Please post the seed.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||My favorite subversion||
I actually do undertand the original construction (ie: same either way), but my favorite subversion of that phrase is this: half of one, six dozen of the other. Heard on more than one occasion....
|42 weeks 5 days ago||The feeling is mutual..||
Harbaugh on Carroll's USC team in 2007: "They may be the best team in the history of college football. My opinion." Before going on to beat them.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||Reader Jeffrey's analysis is very smart.||
Reader Jeffrey's analysis is very smart. Academics and lawyers generally get a bad rap, but his insights are far more informative and calm-inducing than most of what has been written about this coaching search. More such content, please.
|48 weeks 4 days ago||Ding Dong!||
the witch is dead!
|48 weeks 6 days ago||Obviously,||
Hoke is a coach who obviously cannot motivate young men to execute football, and who obviously overuses certain adverbs to mask his obvious incompetence.
|49 weeks 5 days ago||Question: Was the player who delivered that hit||
Question: Was the player who delivered that hit ever further disciplined? Sorry for not keeping tabs but, did the UM staff follow up with the BIG office on that? It looked like blatant targeting.
|49 weeks 5 days ago||Upon reflection, Bass' injury heralded the beginning of the end.||
Upon reflection, Bass' injury heralded the beginning of the end.
The "what might have been" (2006 MNC?), morphed into the near 10 year abyss.
Yes, his loss looms that large for me.
|1 year 4 days ago||Nice get!||
|1 year 1 week ago||Cochran should be tossed||
by the Big Ten office--at least one game.
Hoke should be tossed permanently. Complete embarassment of a program at this point.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||So true.||
So true, sad but true. How two OCs in a row cannot see this is amazing.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Upvote for Mirror Pond Pale Ale||
Turned onto it when I lived in Eugene. Still buy it when I can find it.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Not sure if it is apropos here but...||
To hell with Notre Dame!
( I knew it was...)
|1 year 7 weeks ago||So you're saying there's hope?||
I remember growing up my Dad would peg different schools as to their traditional position strengths.
Pretty typical stuff--PSU:linebackers, USC:running backs, ND:assholes and UM:OL.
My how times have changed. Still hopeful however...
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Is this prostitutor real?||
or is she some friend of Lennay?
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Agreed||
And the truly sad part is that once a brand starts to be marketed in a cheap manner, it is very difficut to reverse course and carve out the classy and unique image. For all the successes that people may see in Brandon's efforts, stunts like piped in music and clowniforms have cheapened the whole enterprise.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Great Player||
He was always the X factor to me, the difference between the team being very good and great.
Those inconsistent flashes of brilliance were/are coachable to more consistency. Sorry to see him go, but I'm ever more likely to start watching the NBA again.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Can the drones play in the secondary?||
Gotta imagine they'd be damn good ball hawks.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||77-65 good guys.||
I'm not buying that an SEC also-ran can hang with the BIG champs.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Pretty strong statement||
Considering that Two-Hearted is often voted one of if not the best IPAs (or any beer) in America by different industry publications. Founders is fine beer and to each their own of course but no one "blows Bells out of the water".
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Duck Fuke!||
I would have rather we beat them, but still wonderful.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Show-cause?||
Didn't he leave Tenn with a show-cause penalty? (or whatever the proper term is).
|1 year 28 weeks ago||I appreciate the attempt to be balanced here. BUT||
There are clearly both environmental and genetic components. I would argue that there is not "a" genetic abnormality, but rather a very large suite of genotypes that can predispose toward autism. If it were "a" single allele (gene variant) then we would ahve found it by now. When you combine a very large number of predisposing gene variants with environmental effects that themselves may vary with genotype, you get things that are very hard to nail down, like autism, adult onset diabetes, multiple sclerosis and on and on. You are right that there well may be an immune system connection (overly simplified: growing up in too sterile of environments seems to be causing us all sorts of problems).
That said, one envrionmental area that has been looked at extensively is the possible effect of vaccines. NO FLIPPING EVIDENCE AT ALL. NONE! It is not balanced to say that since it is complex and we do not know everything that everything is on the table. We have ruled out vaccines as causing autism. It is a deadly suggestion and not part of a balanced treatment.
