Abraham Lincoln should have just kept his mouth shut because it offended people.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah...||
...it was public knowledge that he has a learning disability. Search this site or google and you will find it. I have lived in Florida for my entire professional career (12 years) and have never lived in Detroit so I am not especially concerned about FERPA, IDEA or ADA.
You have made a gross jump in logic here as well. I did not say that giving up or skipping an exam was an effective or acceptible strategy, I merely suggest that you try to have a little empathy. How you deduce that this means I teach my students to "just give up" or to not give full effort at all times is beyond me. Acknowledging and understanding =/= accepting or excusing. Perhaps the differece is lost to you.

was from Todd Howard. Todd attended Bollingbrook High School and according to an article on him was an assistant coach as of 2011. I assume he is probably still there.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Do you know the circumstances....||
surrounding that? Yet you feel free to judge. I work with students with learning disabilities on a daily basis, and one of their first defenses when academic demands get tough is to give up effort. Our system is set up to identify these issues after they present themselves and have caused academic struggles rather than identify is early and work with students before they develop bad habits. At any rate, we are talking about a young man with learning disabilities who has earned 90 credits at the University of Michigan, I would say he has put in alot more work than you can imagine. He made some bad decisions, perhaps out of frustration (another classic behavior of many students with learning disabilities), in skipping finals. Let Harbaugh deal with it and give the condescension a rest.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I find it....||
hard to believe that you are truly a football coach. You are telling me, that the only contribution a player can make to helping a team win is by making big plays on game day? Do you know how he works in practice? If he is pushing the guys ahead of him for playing time....I would say that is a contribution. If he was being a leader...that is a contribution. A football coach ought to know that if the scout team is doing its job, they are helping the team win. You may not like his dancing, you may think he is overrated as a player, but to say he hasn't done anything to help this team win games is ignorant.
Do you care about all the players on your team? Even the ones that have no chance of contributing on game day? Or are they expendable to you?

Did the OP edit his post or did you not read it?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Well||
Frank did seek advice from Harbaugh and Hoke
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||Rotator Cuff...||
When I had my surgery 3 years ago...I was essentially strapped down for 6 weeks and then was asked not to lift more than 5 pounds or lift my arm away from my body for another 6 weeks. 12 weeks out from surgery you have no strength and no range of motion. When I read the article I felt that a 9-12 month return to professional boxing was wishful thinking (granted he has access to better equipment, facilities, and personnel than I do). It is very likely, for a 36 year old man, that this is it for Pacquiao. Additionally, part of the payday is a percentage of the revenue that would likely take a dip in a fight with two men, 37+ and 39+, with one of them coming off a 1 year rehab of a rotator cuff. Are you paying $100 for that? Would you walk away from an estimated $100M+ payday with no guarantees that you would be able to ever fight again?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||What is spring?||
If 93 degrees at 5 PM is spring to you then we are having one heck of a spring!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||At his size....||
it is difficult to develop good technique this early. I'd imagine he has had some pretty good growth spurts and has gone through or is going through coordination issues due to it (can really impact ability to play low with power and athleticism). Also, when you are bigger than everyone else, you are not really forced to learn/use technique because you can outsize every one.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah....||
I'm a real idiot!
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Feel free to judge as you see||
Feel free to judge as you see fit. You can justify your actions all you want...I know I am just as guilty as she is.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||The point wasn't that you||
The point wasn't that you spoke to someone like that. It was that, I am pretty sure, 99.9% of us have used words to hurt people we were upset with no matter how justified we think we are. She was out of line...but I am not going to act like there haven't been times when I lost control as well and would be embarrassed by my actions if I had to watch them on national news/gossip shows. Acting like she is the worst human being in the world is a stretch.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I think....||
...we have a bunch of hypocrites in this thread. How many of you, when you felt that you were wronged and were being taken advantage of, have not said something that was meant to hurt someone's feelings?
What would people think of you if we filmed your worst moments in life and showed the video to the world....and then edited it so that no one really knew what set you off to begin with?
Why do you think the video was edited in the first place?
Why do you think the video was not sent privately to ESPN initially?
Britt took responsibility, she admitted she was wrong, indicated she needed to handle the situation better and apologized. This board is big about people apologizing (i.e. Chris Webber), but when people do, you still want to hurl your judgments.....so why should apologies be made?
|6 weeks 6 days ago||or Cherokee||
or Wrangler depending on model
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed...||
...let's also not forget that the offense is scripted in that what they do on any given play is pre-determined (unless it is an option route) and the defense is reactionary to the play in front of them. The defense saw those plays for 14 practices, this combined with the fact that they are simply better players, at this point, and have more depth means they were probably going to dominate the line of scrimmage, and they did.

...I'm ready for the Big Bang!
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Not only that...||
but think of the benefit to the local schools in learning from coaches the caliber of the Michigan staff...and I would hope that local players get to attend without charge if that is within the rules, which it ought to be if it is part of the contract, i.e. paid for by the school/ set up as a fund raiser.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Have you considered that...||
your point B contradicts your point A? Doesn't being depressed by the lack of distinguishable seasons speak to your emotional strength? Wuss! I dare say the Ann Arbor winter is not worse than the Florida summer.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||That's alright, man. I'm here||
That's alright, man. I'm here for ya!

I think I am going to have to start staying up until mid-night.

daughters have had Ventricular SDs. One closed on its own by 6 months (she will be turning 11 in April).....My 8 month old still had one at her 6 month check, but the cardiologist is confident it will take care of itself over the next year. This is a truly heartbreaking story.

levels of football (HS, youth, college underclassmen), when you reach the upper level of football you are in fact coaching. Upper classmen are coaching the younger guys, NFL veterans/starters are helping and coaching rookies and newcomers. They watch unimagineable amounts of film, turn in scouting reports on the payers (not just teams) they will be seeing on the field and tendencies, etc. He may not have the teaching/ item analysis, which is why he is a GA, but he certainly has the insight and experience to coach the OL position.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Funny...||
I was talking to a friend/acquaintance of his today and told him that Iowa is notorious for destroying ACLs. And questioned why he would want to play in a corn field for a coach who may not even be there beyond this year when he can play for the guy who coached in the past couple of NFC championship games. I then showed him the average star rating for Iowa and Michigan.

confused when Missy Elliott was on with the....whatever those shirst were...and her off lip synching and not being able to understand one word of it that I thought "this must be what it is like to have dementia." I had to turn it off.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||OK but....||
RHS was 4 - 6, 0-3 vs 8A teams, 1 of those only won 1 game all year, and the 4 teams you beat only combined for 6 total wins all year. RHS played Bayshore, Booker, and Southeast in 5A. Venice and Lehigh in 6A, Lakewood Ranch and Sarasota in 7A. Manatee and St. Pete are talented, Venice is usually very well coached. The rest of the schedule is mediocre at best.
