"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

|14 weeks 3 days ago||We may be living in||
the most interesting times for Michigan football ever. Given the state of the game, the status of our rivals and The Most Interesting Coach in the World, I cannot wait to watch college football history unfold.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||There is a segment of the business community||
to which this appeals, but it is way smaller than he thinks it is.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||You nailed it.||
I see it went right to the finance committee after bypassing the Is It A Good Idea? Committee. I predict 10 years from now, we will all still be singing The Victors, this song will be long forgotten and Adam will still be trying to get back into show business one way or the other.

And why does Jim Hackett love him so?
|31 weeks 5 days ago||I looked at the RCMB today,||
and they are either praying hard that Harbaugh doesn't come so they can feast on our misery or saying Harbaugh is overrated and they can't wait to see the look on his face when he gets crushed by Dantonio. It is a weird, disturbed place they nest in.

it had a calming effect on my soul. itshappening.gif
|31 weeks 5 days ago||the hastily called chat||
by Tony from the Edge of the Internet just before noon declared white smoke and had oddly specific facts such as Ross being conferenced in on the call with Hackett and the agent to say he would help cover assistant coach salaries. Brian, is he connected or a lunatic?

God help the gooners if he finds a new girlfriend before the end of the season. He is the primary reason they can still make the top 4.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||Actually, on a current events test||
Those who got their information from NPR were best informed, then CNN, then MSNBC, then people who purposely avoided the news, then Fox. The review of false statements per hour showed Fox to be the worst followed by MSNBC.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||I agree with what you say for the majority||
but maybe he is different because he not only quarterbacked his college team for a coaching legend but also grew up around the program because his dad coached for that same legend. His motives might not be typical because his background and influences are so different from the typical NFL coach. Maybe he wants to win the Super bowl or maybe he wants to be held in the same esteem as Schembechler, Crisler and Yost.

Every time Michigan hires a football coach, Les gets a raise.

3-7 against USC and 4-6 against Michigan. Unless, Purdue is the real rival and not U-M.

"moving on to pursue new, exciting and challenging opportunities."
|45 weeks 5 days ago||So, back when he was blowing off the question||
by calling everything a "boo boo," that was somehow better or more informative and less d-baggish? It was endearing back when he was still in the honeymoon period and not answering the valid question. Now that we are past that point, he is a d-bag. I don't think Hoke has changed, but the fan base's response to him has.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||That was Ted Cassidy||
He played Lurch in the Addams Family TV series. I always thought that was Richard Kiel, too.
|47 weeks 6 days ago||I forget. Did OSU recruit De'veon?||
Oh, wait. Now I remember. Typical 11W commentary.

I would trade a couple of spots down in the US News rankings to beat MSU at EL this year.
|48 weeks 3 days ago||Only to the extent that||
the overriding purpose of a university is to educate and promote research and scholarship and not win football games. The value of my degree in the business and academic marketplaces is based in substantial part on the prestige and standing of my university, not its ability to field a winning football team. In fact, I would go further and say that it is the current prestige and standing of the university and not what it was when I went there.

I'm not all that interesting.

It's funnier the second time.

Woodson was 1st in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southwest, Midwest and Far West regions and Manning was 1st in (surprise!) the South. And that says it all.

Sometimes I believe that the headline writers go for it and see if they can get one past the editors.

He says that all of the coaches are evaluated each year at the end of their seasons. Or something like that.

He didn't just change the bad play call, he changed the bad play caller.
|1 year 1 week ago||Southest Michigan Gooners||
I started watching Premier League matches last year and chose Arsenal for my rooting interest for no real reason other than they were not the Yankees (with all the championships) even if they seemed to have a history with some success, and I had to have a rooting interest. I haven't joined the American fan club, but I understand that the local branch gathers at Conor O'Neill's, and it sounds like a good way to be a part of the larger fanbase even while most of it is on the other side of the Atlantic.
I have to admit, I cared nothing for soccer for most of my life but had some interest in the 2010 World Cup because I was in Europe during the semi-final and finals and everyone around me cared a great deal about it. Seeing all of the national flags waving over the apartments of expats in Malta and then the Spanish nationals singing and chanting while wearing their jerseys and waving flags at the foot of the Spanish Steps in Rome was remarkable. This so-called "football" seemed like kind of a big deal to everyone else. The convenience of the weekly NBC broadcast, recently discovering SiriusXM FC, the relative success of the US men's national team and the advent of the Detroit City FC has me wanting to learn more about a game that suddenly seems so much more complicated and intricate than I ever gave it credit for before. I wish that I had discovered it years ago, although I realize I would not have been able to really enjoy it until all of these things (the internet, cable and radio broadcasts and a World Cup in prime time) came to pass. But I agree with Don: Michigan footbal over the other kind. Always.

I was puzzled why Betty White was on a White Power shirt. Bad joke? (Betty "White Power"?)

I like it better when she has been shopping for bras.

attending in person but for the potential consumers watching the B1G broadcast.
I would love to attend a football practice yet, for some reason, I couldn't muster the energy to drive 20 minutes to watch this one. And I skipped it on TV, too. Still, I expect I will attend every game this year despite The Worst Home Schedule Ever.
