Not that it matters. But Marrone wasn't fired from Buffalo. He opted out of his contract intentionally to gtfo... because Buffalo

We're better than this. Well... most of us
|8 weeks 5 days ago||VPN||
I would strongly recommend just investing in a VPN. If you look around you can find deals on getting 1 year of service for less than $50. I got a lifetime subscription to one and have already been able to catch games in Sydney and London this year, and I'll be in Paris for the big ten championship game. It's been a life saver

"Sure but they're better than msu right?
Iowa almost lost to Rutgers... at home... and didn't score the winning touchdown until about 5 minutes left in the game.
I understand that the past several years have scarred us, but worry not brothers, this will be a bloodbath.
I'm meeting with friends to play "take a shot every time Michigan scores" for this game and fully expect to black out

|12 weeks 2 days ago||Maybe he's overreacting||
But he's also completely right. Our defense was inexplicably shut down in the end of the third quarter and we spent all of the fourth quarter allowing them to chip away at the lead.
Had we committed to one more aggressive TD drive (which would have been simple since, to that point, they hadn't yet forced a punt), the game would have been out of reach.

Belushi's is the place. Was there last year for the Indiana game. Going to be in Sydney for the msu and Indiana games this year
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Good luck||
people are going to neg bomb you for no reason but I'll try and help.
there's an alumni group in London that meets in a bar downtown for every game. it's been a year since I've been there so I forget the name but do a search on Facebook for the Michigan alumni in London and they will help out.
Someone is going to point out that we have a sticky or Google doc for this. I'm going to point out that it's extremely outdated

We railroaded DB and he was just a giant douche. Can't imagine how quickly we'd alienate someone that fostered a rape culture
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Only if you use Kodi||
If you really just want to use Netflix Hulu and Amazon video the stick will be fine. I'm just a cranky old man when it comes to the devices lagging
|35 weeks 3 days ago||I have all 3||
And can say that based off your description and the fact that you own an rPi (so do i), I'm going to assume that you are somewhat technically savvy.
That said, I can highly recommend none of those 3 options. I would recommend your spend an additional $20 and buy a Nexus player or the full fire TV box and load Kodi on it. Just Google it and you'll get all the info you need. The reason I recommend these is that the hardware bump truly makes a big difference. I find myself wanting to murder my fire TV stick and Roku. And Chromecast of course involves being a bit dependent on your phone(which I'm fine with but you may not be).
Anyway, I cut the cord about 4 years ago now so if you have any questions at all, hardware, software, or UI based I'm happy to help.

Is upper deck in downtown Scottsdale still open? Used to go there for a lot of M games but it's admittedly been a few years.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||I'm sure it's true||
It's definitely true, that game became somewhat competitive. Our game was over by the end of the 1st half
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Agreed||
The only games I see that I would lean towards losses are staee, Stanford, and USC. Two of those three games are at home.

Can we delete all these msu threads? One is plenty, if not too many

Am I crazy or is Harbaugh wearing a 49er just in that picture with an M just imposed onto his coat?
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Ignore the posts then||
1) Some people just travel for work (or fun) and like to watch Michigan games amongsts like-minded individuals. Your focus on my supposed 'humblebrag' is cynical and insecure. Grow up.
2) If these threads were useless they would never be posted. People start them, people get the help they requested, people ignore your rage. Move on.
3) The bar thread is rarely updated. If you'll notice in the thread there are people with actual experience in bars in London from no more than a month ago. While the bar thread can be useful, input from local alums/frequent travelers/residents is more useful.
Nobody cares about your posts but you. Please go climax to your points and then come back and downvote my post. Hopefully your post-coital satisfaction will bring you some solace
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Excellent!||
Thanks a lot man. Have at least 2-3 good suggestions now.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||This is correct||
I guess I just should have left Brighton out of it. Thank you for being awesome and not jumping at the chance to e-rage
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Thank you||
Thank you for the honest non-asshat response. Much appreciated, will likely end up here or at the Piccadilly circus spot mentioned.
Didn't realize everyone hates these threads, whenever someone asks about cities that I've lived I just give suggestions and move on.

|1 year 27 weeks ago||that deal is outstanding||
That's like $570 value for only $400. both of those games after getting game of the year talk (witcher 3 more so).
Also, PlayStation plus is needed to play games online. Plus you get about 2-3 games free each month. This month's free game, Rocket League, is amazing.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Just posted FSU details above||
This deal, over a 10 year period, is approximately 3 times that of FSU...
I keep looking at these details and thinking I've misinterpreted something...but I dont think I have. This contract is absurdly large. "Hats off" to Hackett is a gross understatement. The guy needs to be bronzed and placed in the center of campus.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Need to know info of others||
Curious to know the breakdown of other schools' cash/apparel amounts. That $169M number is absolutely insane. If typically contracts are represented in the amount of cash received ($77M or approx $7M per year), it definitely puts us above most all other schools, but not by the amount that we'd imagine.
Anyone know the amounts of the FSU/OSU deals?
Edit: Holy Shit..here's the FSU details via Rivals from 2 years ago.
The extension, signed June 27 of last year, stipulates that NIKE will provide FSU an average of 1.45 million in cash each year and 2.9 million in supplied product each year for five years, with a potential extension through 2022-2023. It also came with a hefty $3 million signing bonus. As a total, FSU's apparel contract is valued at roughly $24.5 million over the first five years, with a slight increase to $25 million in the next five years if the extension is signed.
Quick Google search on Bama's deal (albeit from 5 years ago)
Fresh off a national title in football, Alabama on Friday placed the contract's value at nearly $30 million in cash and product over eight years.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||While I agree||
I care less about the apparel and more about seeing the epically awesome contract he negotiated that will make other Nike schools limp with jealousy
