Dear lord, who gives a shit? It's been 20 years and both parties are getting over their grievances. Whether you like it or not, Bullock, CWebb, and the Fab Five are part of Michigan's family and you don't get to decide who is and who isn't a part of the Michigan legacy. I mean, who the fuck are you to ask for remorse from players who brought joy and excitement to thousands of fans? How convenient that we lavish athletes with praise for their performances on the field but as soon as they stumble, we're the first turn our backs on them and pretend they don't exist. Especially, you know, after 20 bloody years. It doesn't matter if you or any of the other geriatrics on this board can't accept these 'clowns', because Beillein has endorsed them and brought them back to campus to talk with the team. I'm just glad Beilein and his staff don't take after some of the ornery, grudge-holding troglodytes that form a part of the Michigan fanbase.

What the fuck are you talking about, man? Who, aside from Jake Ryan and perhaps Frank Clark has shown any sort of growth here in the past 4 years?
|39 weeks 3 days ago||'most of these guys are||
'most of these guys are totally unlikeable off the field as well.'
What a fucking lame excuse to go and turn on your players. Criticise the players and the coaching staff for their performances all you want, but don't try to justify further vitriol by saying 'most' of these guys are unlikable people. Every team in the nation has, at least, a handful of players suspended for serious offenses. If we had beaten State, this bullshit about the flaws of their moral character wouldn't have even popped in your mind.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Shut up||

Common man, are you crazy?

I was hoping you'd stop being a jerk but, alas, I ask too much.
|41 weeks 2 hours ago||Just imagine if we were to||
Just imagine if we were to win 2 games in a row...... some people might start calingl for a lifetime contract for Brady.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||What do you expect?||
When a newly appointed coach says things like 'the goal is to win B1G championships' and that National Championships are not worth setting goals for, you get the sense that Michigan's ambitions don't quite align with those of the more recently succesfful, elite, Southern programs.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Nevermind top 2, when was the||
Nevermind top 2, when was the last time we beat a top 25 team? Our biggest wins in the past 4 years are against 6-6 OSU, 6-6 MSU, 8-4 Nebraska, 8-4 Notre Dame, and 11-3 Virginia tech team that nobody thought deserved to be in the sugar bowl.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||My source says the Regents||
My source says the Regents want the “blood on the Presidents hands.” However, they also vow to fire the President of the University if he doesn’t act quickly and decisively on Hoke and Brandon. They want them both gone. I’m not convinced they will fire the President, I feel that is a pressure point.
That's fucking ridiculous. I want Dave Brandon and his lackeys out, but if this is true and the regents are willing to fire the President for not doing their dirty work with regards to the football probram, I will join the 'Fire all regents' brigade.

Just stop, I can't handle that. That would be too amazing to experience, and you're just setting me up for dissappointment and heart break, man.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Please don't compare the||
Please don't compare the Pistons to that piece of shit franchise.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||I didn't even know Brian hates Dave Brandon||
But I've got my own reasons, so don't accuse anybody who disagrees with you of being a sheep.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||The combination||
of Ayn Rand and your post just screams 'douchebag'.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||"Not to be a downer"||
You're like the Nyquil of downers.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Dammit,||
I fucking love Jalen Rose.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||"For those of us who watched||
"For those of us who watched this program spiral into decline as a result of this scandal, it's about a little more than just Webber's skill on the basketball court."
You must not have been watching very closely because it's completely facetious to say that our program declined because of Weber. Our program declined because of our Atheltic department's refusal to invest in its facilities and hire competent coaches. I mean, Ellerbe won a Big ten tournament during the beginning of his term and thereafter gave us terrible seasons. This was even BEFORE we had any sanctions whatsoever. And even then, the only meaningful sanction that we had imposed on us was a grand total of 1 scholarship reduction a year. Stop using false arguments to support your bias against the fab five
|2 years 16 weeks ago||The fact that our fanbase||
is not completely comprised of geriatric pedants like you might have something to do with it.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Please,||
don't. I know a lot of people on this board are Lions fans, but can we ALL just make sure Denard stays the fuck away from the Lions instead of actually urging them to sign him? He needs to go to a team that will nurture him under an innovative Offensive Coordinator, not the massive cesspool that is that shitty-ass club. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy, and certainly not Denard.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||As far as I'm concerned,||
whoever hates Jalen Rose and the Fab Five hates Michigan, and is most likely a Dookie.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Wow||
We really are a football school, aren't we?
|2 years 17 weeks ago||That's a dig?||
Don't be so snesitive.

|2 years 18 weeks ago||As per usual the immaturity displayed||
on this board is at full blast, and it takes a special brand of immaturity to involve politics into a discussion that doesn't need it. If you can tell who's liberal and who's conservative from just reading posts, you need to shut this shit down.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||I expected to be neg blasted to the depths of Ohio||
but for me, Lloyd >Bo. Lloyd was my "generation", I witnessed the emotional moment in which he was hoisted up in his final game during my freshman season. Lloyd won the first national championship for Michigan in the past 70 years. Bo won 2/10 Rose Bowls, nevermind a National Championship. I also prefer Lloyd's grandfatherly demenour to Bo's hard ass footbaw coach persona.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||LOL||
What a bunch of fair weather fans in here. Seriously? A fucking practice game over Michigan's seeding? It's nice to see such amazing support when we start sucking.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Uh||
Are you talking about the loss to PSU or the 25 point beatdown by Michigan State?
I wonder what your response will be when we get bounced off the second round of the tourney, again.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Some of us||
Some of us, abeith a minority, like Michigan's basketball team more than the football team. So when someone straight up dismisses a particular aspect of the bball team;s failures by saying that football is just around the corner, it can be seen as derisive to those of who have been following basketball with unbroken attention.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||It's ridiculous to say that||
It's ridiculous to say that we'd be better off without our and possibly the nation's best player, but I think it might be a possibility. I can see what you're saying, they might actually be a better team next year. Of course, this all depends on if anyone else aside from Trey Burke decides to leave.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Thanks to the coaches and players||
and all that. John Beillein is a great coach who has built this program brick by brick, what he has managed to do with an almost perennial bottom feeder in the past 20 years is nothing short of remarkable.
But how the hell are we an "elite" program right now? Why don't we wait until we have some decent level of success in the Tournament before we call ourselves elite again. Not to call you out or anything but are you also one of those people who bitches about the spoiled nature of our fanbase and complains about their lack of perspective while at the same time raising the same expectations you later claim to be unrealistic?
