I lived in the area for a time and I don't really find anything about this story surprising. That entire stretch of coast has some of the weirdest townies I've ever encountered.

Am I wrong or is Pip going into his senior year? We're fine on scholarships for the upcoming season as I remember, so what would be freeing up by forcing him out?

I know the tradition around here is to be cynical and pessimistic, but it's getting hard not to feel a little hopeful about all this. The events of this week taken independently wouldn't mean all that much, but taken together could present a narrative. Time will tell!

How do you figure that he almost definitely raped a girl? What evidence do you have that points to that?
|11 weeks 20 hours ago||I think my major issue with||
I think my major issue with this is that people go to university to learn to become the person they are, they find their own views. If we start banning things because people are discomforted by them, it's a slippery slope to only having one accepted viewpoint. I haven't seen the movie, but I highly doubt it's "The Birth of a Nation: Part Two". I think if you don't like something, by all means speak out against it and say why you find it wrong. I draw the line when it comes to surpressing what you dislike. As far as the safety issue goes, I find it to be overblown. Racist assholes are going to be racist assholes, this movie is not going to change that for better or worse. Especially on a progressive campus like U of M.

I totally understand where you're coming from, and typically and ideally that's how I try to approach things as well. I just have seen people like her in action enough to know it's primarily about attention and I can't take the hypocrisy behind it seriously. I'm definitely a little biased from past experiences, but I don't think my preconcieved notions will end up being incorrect on this one.
|11 weeks 21 hours ago||It has nothing to do with||
It has nothing to do with American Sniper, but it does relate to the situation. If this girl is throwing pork at a fellow Muslims door, I think it calls her motivations and integrity into question. Considering that she is primarily behind this blowing up, I find it to be relevant.

I think the point is that the girl concrned about anti-muslim sentiment caused by the film, also allegedly threw hot dogs and eggs at Mahmoods door. It takes away a bit of credibility.

That would've been the way to do it, if the concern was actually about this film being showed.
Unfortunately, as you pointed out, the entire point behind this is that it fits a political narrative.

The problem is the snowflake attitude has become prevelent at a faculty level at schools around the country. It's where a lot of the kids are getting it from.

It's a shame too, because their app is the best one to keep track of scores I think.

It wasn't months ago. The video is a couple days old about a camp held not that long ago.

Lundardi had us as a one seed this time last year.
Take his predictions with a giant grain of salt.

I'm not sure exaggerated it is. He said that he was definitely going to an Adidas school. Not much room for interpretation there, unless he was lying.

You are so wrong it hurts. He was the only person making anything happen at the beginning of the year because his supporting cast hadn't developed yet. I really hope Caris sticks around next year so you get to see how wrong you are. Not that you'll acknowledge it.

If he's medical'd, he is done playing basketball at Michigan. Not allowed to come back after that.

I'd prefer Caris too, but c'mon man. Putting players into the NBA most definitely is good for Michigan hoops.

Given the circumstances of the game, it being the National Championship and all, it most certainly was a once-in-a-season bad call.

Yep, same old BS. Claiming that Morris was "Milking" the university for his scholarship.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Well, good thing that it's||
Well, good thing that it's not up to you and that when we offer a scholarship it's for better or worse. Im sure you know how hard he works in practice and in the classroom for that scholarship. Flat out saying he's milking the university for a scholarship is real prick move. About expected from you at this point, though.
