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
|2 weeks 17 hours ago||Excellent!||
Thanks a lot man. Have at least 2-3 good suggestions now.
|2 weeks 17 hours 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
|2 weeks 17 hours 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.

|19 weeks 18 hours 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.
|19 weeks 1 day 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.
|19 weeks 1 day 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.

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

We knew it wouldn't be long before an article like this popped up. I think Rich handled it nicely. He's earned the right to put a little smirk on considering the current state of affairs. As an AZ resident it sucks though, because I will always cheer for the guy but it'll just remind me of what we could have had.

Guys I have excellent news! Even with the embarrassing display Michigan is currently putting on, it's extremely likely that 90% of the big ten is EVEN WORSE than we are.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Depends||
The use of an indefinite article with regards to an abbreviation or an acronym is really dependent on the reader.
If you read that phonetically as "An linebacker" then you clearly prefer a over an. If you read as "An ell bee" then an is appropriate.
What it really comes down to is whether LB is meant to be read as "ell bee" or "linebacker". I'm not sure there's a definitive rule for that.
Happy grammar nazi-ing!
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Wow||
Crazy to read about this hear. Oddly enough I was childhood friends with Tim and the Shaw family. I went to the same Bible camp as him and his brothers for several years. I'm not exactly religious anymore but I wish only the best for him and his family.

|1 year 40 weeks ago||Not nearly as hopeful...||
While you are correct in that the regional coverage of the 2 companies doesnt overlap with regards to cable...that's not what this merger is about. This is 100% about internet and net neutrality.
The cable industry is coming off one of it's worst years in...god who knows how long. Every provider is losing subscribers by the hundreds of thousands as customers flock to Netflix/Hulu/Aereo. So while you may not like the merger and cable pricing...what if you just want to go to full time streaming? Great! Just sign up for our internet offerings - all with either built in broadband data caps or throttling to make those video streams ever so laggy! (I believe companies like Verizon and Comcast already do this) Allowing one super company to control what content we view as well as how we view it and the quality with which we view it at is just...I mean...lol.
Frustrating customers to the point of jumping ship won't matter to TWComcast, because they'll own the ocean too.

Maybe it's because I see a little of the Jeremy Gallon Cloak Device in him, I don't know. But as long as his hands are solid, I see him wreaking havoc in the backfied. It certainly doesn't look like he'll have an issue getting open.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Way to scrub the stats||
You're manipulating that data. Hoke is 4-5 against our rivals, this is true.
A much more accurate statement is: Hoke is 0-4 against our rivals on the road. This statement is more relevant since all of our rivalry games are on the road next year.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Why does it not make sense?||
I don't see why people think it doesn't make sense. All asshattery aside, Kiffin's prowess as an OC has never been a debate. He's a very good to great OC. Additionally, Saban is a perfectionist. Losing 2 games, 1 of which was to Auburn (albeit on one of the craziest plays in CFB history) is unacceptable. To us, this is overreacting. To him, this is being proactive and staying ahead of the curve in the SEC, which is necessary for survival.
Ultimately, I think that BOTH UofM and Bama benefit from these moves, and I can live with that.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Pos'd you||
Pos'd you because of justice.
You're just asking the questions that have to be asked, which was my first reaction. Clearly he has a good track record of improving offenses, and can coach at the highest level as he won an NC.
But something is up. It makes no sense for a guy running the O at Alabama, who historically is on our level but recently is certainly ahead of us, to jump to OC at a program who isn't as successful. Especially when he's been mentioned as a HC candidate at BCS level programs.
This could be as simple as Saban legitimately wanting the change to Kiffin and Nuss catching a bad break, in fact, I think it's just that. Hopefully we get our answer soon. Either way, Nuss is a significant upgrade to Borges and I think our offense will be better next year as a result. Hurray.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Good game, but gets old quick....||
It's good, but it got old kind of quick. And by quick, I mean 120+ hours. I pos'd someone in this thread because they hit the nail on the head by saying games have gotten just too easy. While there definitely is a LOT to do in Skyrim, I wouldn't say that any of it is particularly hard. Still a good game tho, worth $60 (thats what I paid on PS3 a couple years ago, no clue what it costs now on console/steam).
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Battlefield/COD||
Battlefield 4 is pretty good, at least the campaign. Will be beating it this weekend. I am a long time COD player and can say that COD Ghosts is absolutely awful. I already plan on trading it in at Gamestop this weekend. Gonna get the trophies and be done with it.
For those nerds out there that appreciate a real time sink, Final Fantasy 14 (online MMO) for PS3 is absolutely outstanding. You could play that game for 24 hours straight and not even make a dent in the content. They also keep adding more content and dont charge $10 for them. But most people aren't RPG players and that's fine.
Really looking forward to the new slate of PS4 games coming in the next 2 months.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||This ^||
Exactly. This game doesn't stick out to me because it was our first loss (I had forgotten that it was until he said that). I had already come to terms with the fact that we simply weren't very good and we'd ultimately get exposed. To lose the way we did, and to have that misery dragged out over the course of the overtimes was what did it. It's like being sentenced to death, but instead of being hung, they bury you alive. Slow, lonely, and miserable.
