I take sick days all the time. I also get sick all the time.
I'll easily get in more trouble with my boss and HR if I come in while sick vs just taking the day off and resting.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Pretty Sure||
Pretty Sure it was Ace who, correctly, criticized the Blockhams.
I, personally, have zero issues what so ever with Brian's post. I don't have any issues that other people may take issue though. Just doesn't change my view at all.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||This||
This is a campaign to raise awareness. No punishment is given if you say these words, no first admendment rights are even being brushed up upon.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||That||
That sure sounds like one slippery slope of an argument you're trying to give there.
You really think having a campaign to raise awareness not to say things like retard and faggot is going to snowball to raising awareness on not talking about conservative political views? Is that really the argument you're making? Cause that's sure what it sounds like.

We haven't had much attrition under Hoke, and signed some big classes recently. That's really all there is to it man.
Even if a school had zero attrition, they could take 21-22 players every year. (If they also dumped all 5th year seniors). Since most schools have a lot more attrition than zero, it's not all that complicated to see why most can sign 20-30 each year, even while not oversigning.

If a reported 4.3 flat 40-yard time doesn't get 5 fakes out of 5, then nothing ever will.

It's not the Xs and Os but the Jimmy and Joes.

So, "bullshit i'm assuming" is your reasoning. Thanks for explaining!

"college girls in general have been forced to step their appearance up."
Uhh, What the fuck are you talking about?
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||I haven't||
I haven't read or seen much to indicate that this is a "backup plan" for Gentry. Not to mention, it doesn't seem like Harbaugh would go after a guy that would avoid competition like that.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I Disagree||
"As for him not liking his co-workers or owner, shit happens; it's not a great reason to leave."
I respectfully disagree. While I have no clue what the exact motives Marrone had in his decision, leaving a job because you're unhappy with co-workers, owner and management is a perfectly valid reason.
However, where I differ from Marrone is I would be damn sure I have a new job lined up before leaving. :)
|6 weeks 5 days ago||When||
When you're clearly head and shoulders above the competition, that obviously can't even remotely handle the press, you're really not going to get any real "practice" by pushing on for the entire game.
|7 weeks 9 min ago||Aw man||
Poor stringer? Where you saying that as he was being all shady with D'Angelo and his girl? Or doing shit to Wallace and Avon?
Stringer didn't want to change, he wanted people to think he was changing. He always wanted/thought to be better than everyone else he was with, and took going "legit" as a way to step up ontop of everyone else. But he wasn't really truly trying to be legit.He was the same as everyone else around him, but always just looked down his nose. Drove me crazy man.
I'd say I'm Team Avon for the record.
|7 weeks 48 min ago||Heh||
An OSU fan would like Stringer. I freaking hated that guy with a passion.
|7 weeks 23 hours ago||Well||
Google found this.
|7 weeks 23 hours ago||I may be wrong||
I believe that Brian has used the "I'll eat a Lemon" line a few times before as well. This was just the first time he used it and was kinda sorta wrong.

Oh how naive we were.

You just described the Michigan Fanbase during most of Lloyd's years.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||I found this to be pretty hilarious.||
"Not news: An unemployed Michigan alum goes back home to visit family and friends wearing a Michigan hat. (Everyday life for most alums)"
Actually, I found the entire account to be pretty hilarious. Kinda sad to see it go.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Gotcha||
So it's just things you imagine in your head rather than reality. Gotcha.
Thanks for clearing that up!
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Hmm||
Also, Hoke's tenure was nowhere near as bad as RR's. BCS bowl, kids graduating, and a pretty well stocked team (QB not included) for the next coach.
Lets see, a BCS bowl that we kinda fell into, (and had a lucky ref call go our way to win.) using RRs offensive system and recurits.
I don't recall RR having issues with students graduating, I'm assuming you're referring to the APR while he was here? Or was there an issue there that I'm either forgetting or never knew about?
Hoke did recruit star talent much better than RR did, I can give you that much.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||While||
While he may have plenty of offers in the NFL that he can use as leverage. That doesn't mean they're were going to be $8M offers that he could leverage. There is a very large and clear difference there.
I would dismiss the second tweet for different reasons, but I certainly wouldn't do so for the reason you're giving.
|13 weeks 1 hour ago||Not so sure||
I'm not so sure about that one. Seems like a decent reach to me, and a situation that Michigan wouldn't really see any benefit from... they can already be pretty damn picky.
Not to mention, that sure is looking at a pretty small portion of the overall situation.

"Lowest risk surgeries=highly rated recruiting classes."
This is probably the worst analogy i've ever read. And boy is that saying something.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Um||
You're forgetting the UConn Game.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Code||
"The issues are that Beilein runs a relatively clean program, is focused on grades and character, and doesn't pursue many one and done types.
I'd be willing to bet that his selective criteria eliminates 66-75% of the top 100 recruits from consideration."
This is known as "Speaking the code."

Oh no doubt, he made some sick throws in college. The one I remember the most is actually the Capital One Bowl, pretty sure first touchdown of the game where he rifled it into a super small window between the saftey and corner.
However, consistency was never a strong point of his. Tacopants was a regularly targeted reciever for him.
