"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

|6 hours 25 min ago||Illinois vs Michigan rivalry||
I'm convinced a good portion is derived from those Illinois folk who did not get into Michigan, which creates the same level of jealously that insecure people get after being dumped by a hotter person.
I will say that this "rivalry" has definitely cooled in the eyes of Illinois faithful over the past 5-10 years. The harassment has certainly subsided and we (Michigan) are becoming just another school in the big ten in their eyes.

Lots and lots of onions...
|1 day 7 hours ago||Greed is good||
Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures, the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge, has marked the upward surge of mankind and greed, you mark my words, will not only save the NCAA, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA

Cuz if Hoke ever caught wind of what Urban said, all Hoke is gonna do is say, "well..." then clap his hands a few times and cross his arms.

But I think this was posted yesterday.
|1 week 2 days ago||No. It's not contradictory...||
...when you consider buckeye fans would go out of there way to break the rules of physics to be extra dickish.
|1 week 2 days ago||A lot of qualifiers.||
Surveying those that say you should go to the game, I find it interesting the amount of qualifiers you need to rationalize the decision.
|1 week 2 days ago||This is a false statement||
Not trying to argue with you, but how many games have you been to?
|1 week 2 days ago||Homer comment of the year||
The kids are most certainly part of the problem. You gotta be kidding me!
|1 week 2 days ago||Don't go, seriously||
Being a Michigan fan in Columbus is like being a driod in the mos eisley cantina.

I have some family in the Cleveland/Akron area (my goddaughter lives in Hartville) and many are close to who Lebron is and his situation in the Akron area. When you strip away the butthurt associated with Lebron leaving to Miami, by all accounts, Lebron is an extremely genuine and nice guy. Its very hard to find a nasty thing about him.
You can say what you want about "the decision", but Lebron gets too much guff for the media attention he gets. That's the media's fault. For all the shit he gets, Lebron continues to work hard, exhibits tenacity, remains loyal to his hometown, puts on a smile, and wins
I want my kids to be like Lebron..

In addition to the money and women, he had some other unsavory transgressions, including:
1. Repeatedly cheating on his wife
2. Alienating his kids
3. Gambling addiction
5. Minor interactions with organized crime
If these things are what it takes to be an "Alpha Male", then no thanks.
Michael Jordan is a scumbag, plain and simple.
|1 week 6 days ago||Different eras of media coverage||
What's more, Jordan was a lucky SOB for not playing in this era. His off the court antics would make Tiger Woods look like Gandhi. Needless to say, I hope no one wants "be like Mike"

It's not completely out of the ordinary to think we lose to ND this year. I think Vegas has us as a dog as well.
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||See my reply about the using the word "stellar"||
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||As for the OSU game||
That was an outlier last year. That might as close as Hoke is gonna get to beating OSU ever again.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||In no particular order||
1. Game is in SB
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||I guess I used stellar too loosely||
I think our defense will be improved from a fairly good performance last year. Teams like ND and OSU will still have no problem scoring on us. Home games for them help tilt the scale more in their favor.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||He did land...||
...right on her face!
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Expectations vs What Will Happen||
I always have high expectations...until recently. This is what I think will happen:
1. Similar record to last year, maybe one more win
2. Blow-out losses to ND and OSU
3. Close loss to MSU, Penn State, and bowl game
4. Defense is stellar
5. Offense is better, but still sub-par. Still hard for us to score points at times
6. Hoke's seat is piping hot, but he gets the 2015 season
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I agree...||
...but Hoke's lack of grace could also be used among his players and staff, which could be confusing and counter-productive. Not saying that's the case and I understand perception is not necessarily a reality.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||What about the community?||
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Ok. If you want to be objective...||
...at this point, OSU has an edge over us in every category. And probably a significant edge in most of them. We'll see what Hoke & co can do here in the next year or two.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Some other Chicago suggestions.||
Highly recommend trying Edzo's. There is one in Evanston and hear they opened one in Lincoln park somewhere.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||It's Lisa Simpson's favorite book||
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Then your union sucks||
And is completely worthless. You should not have to pay union fees. I think a right to work state may be better for you.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I will guarantee you...||
...if Hoke is fired after this season (or next), Brandon will not lose his job. As much as some people like to bash Brandon, he is successfully running the premier athletic department in the nation. His decisions regarding the football program has been suspect, but the commitment to all other sports has been second to none in Michigan history (even Canham).
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I think the numbers showed that...||
...he did NOT turn ball state around. I don't have the numbers in from of me, but in short, he performed below historical ball state standards and was pretty much on par with the Bill Lynch, the previous coach.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Brady Hoke||
In what is likely going to cause some negging, I call our coach, Coach Clap Hands.
