Needs to learn a little bit about personal space. Geez, let him breathe a little!
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||Truly a moment of Zen||
Almost brings some tears to my eyes. The Glee Club video made me a little nostalgic for the 80s.
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||Great video||
It almost makes intergalactic colonization seem NBD.

That's all the evidence I ever needed.

|2 weeks 1 day ago||Forgive me if this is sounds odd||
But I vaguely remember attending a game when I was a kid (late 80s/early 90s) and watching the students construct a dummy piece-by-piece, donning it with the visiting teams jersey. They then passed it up the stands and tossed it over the top of the stadium to massive cheers. Can anyone validate this memory, or am I just crazy?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'd say it's more like going down a list of news articles||
on your favorite news website, finding several articles about the Kardashians and choosing to click on them in spite of the fact that they annoy you. Just don't click on things that annoy you. Some people are interested in the apparel deal. There are many facets to it and a lot of information to digest, for those interested in digesting it, and there are many users who are interested. Let's leave the thread to them, as annoying and as difficult as that may be.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||It's so annoying that you have to click on it?||
It's the offseason, it's a relevant topic that many users are intersted in. Just don't click on it. In my opinion, this thread is more interesting to me than the Ann Arbor #1 swimming city thread, which I didn't click on. It wasn't so hard.

Comes with the system, The Witcher 3, Arkham Knight, and Playstation Plus (I have no idea what that is)
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||Two questions:||
When did the "official maize" become official?
What years did the team don official maize?
That's the only option in my eyes. I'm wondering if it's because I grew up with it (nostalgia influence) or if I simply subjectively prefer it.

It really eases the pain of losing out on his commitment. Such things just shouldn't be done, especially by kickers. Maybe a kicking montage or something, but coming out a private plane? It was good for a laugh.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Wow, was unaware.||
What year did that start?

|3 weeks 4 days ago||Classic Maize||
That it was ever changed is absurd. Did Adidas have authority to do that on their own, or did someone within the university sign off on it? Also, I'm guessing the university didn't even do one of those infamous Dave Brandon Saturday-at-midnight press releases to announce the change from Maize to Sun. I just remember showing up to a game and wondering why the team looked offensively bright.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||We simply disagree.||
Time is a huge factor. People suffer the consequences of their behavior, change, and recover. Minick hasn't had much time to show a change in his terrible judgment while Harbaugh has had years. Being a marine is irrelevant, there are plenty of great ones and plenty of awful ones. I'm not saying his recent poor choice erases his military service, something that is also irrelevant to this conversation. He made a poor choice in the recent past and should be held accountable for it. End of story. This team doesn't need a someone who acted in such poor judgment as as one of its leaders.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||You put a lot of words in my mouth.||
I didn't call for his instant dismissal, which would have been the day the Minick story broke. Now that the details are available, it's clear the man's integrity falls below the necessary mark for someone in his position. Aside from his responsibilities, he's a role model for the team. With all the players and former players who've made terrible choices over the last few years, good role models are sorely needed at Michigan. Anyone who chooses to get behind a wheel with a .186 BAL is a terrible role model.
I also did not call for Minick to be ostracized. Losing his job is a consequence of action. Many professionals lose their liscense for similar behavior. It's pretty common.
Regarding Jim Harbaugh's DUI, that was a decade ago, and people change. As far as I know, he hasn't received a DUI since. He's had time to show himself responsible. Minick has not had the time. Hypothetically, if Harbaugh was arrested tomorrow after driving his car into a ditch and endangering lives with a BAL of .186, I'd surely hope he would no longer be the coach at Michigan.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Regarding the DFO position||
From what I understand about the role of the DFO, the job involves assuring the team complies with various rules, bylaws, regulations, etc. that it must adhere to and monitoring student academic progress among other things. It's hard for me to imagine his words and actions will hold much sway after an incident like this just a few months into his tenure. He had a BAL over twice the legal limit. I wish him the best of luck dealing with his problem, I just don't think someone like that should be representing the team in a position that seems heavy on the integrity requirement. Just my opinion.

|7 weeks 1 day ago||The embers of my Michigan football fandom were lit here.||
When the crowd ignited as Kattus caught the ball in the endzone, my father says I stood up on his knees and roared like everyone around us, double fist-pumping in the air. Today, I feel like I did something wrong if I don't leave the stadium hoarse from cheering. My love for this team and game are forever.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||That was my first in-person Michigan football game||
My dad took my 3-year-old self to the the Big House and borrowed some drunk lovebirds' ticket stubs to get us into the stadium (you could do that in those days). We sat in their endzone seats during part of the third quarter, watching the Harbaugh-to-Kattus TD. Since the trip was impromptu and due to the fact that my father was a beginner dad, of course he forgot to bring jackets, so we left afterward to a bar that used to be at the corner of Packard and Washtenaw and watched this play while my dad sipped a beer and I ate popcorn. A faded memory, but a good one for both the Michigan football and for how Homer-esque my dad used to be.

The good ol' Oltorf HEB, full of hipsters, and now I guess Urban Meyer-clone murders.

|11 weeks 1 day ago||Thought similary||
Except it was a giant windmill with windmill blades that extended millions of miles in space. At some point down each rotating blade you'd have to be going faster than the speed of light. Part of the blade would be going slower, part at, and part faster than the speed of light. I'm sure it'd be impossible to create a blade strong enough to do so, but just sayin'.
