...that the quality of the promotional videos don't necessarily equate to quality of football. Case in point:

...who thinks bball games in domes suck ass, final four or not. I thought the seats at the Georgia dome were just plain bad for basketball. Sure, there were probably some good seats, but the stadium was not built for bball.
|6 days 15 hours ago||There is something to be said about...||
...getting a college experience. I went to Ross full time MBA. There were many who had attended the prestigious Ivys for undergrad (including Harvard). I think most would say they enjoyed their Michigan experience better since they were able to have a true "American college experience". I would also say that most are more loyal to Michigan than their undergrad school. I think that says a lot.
|1 week 6 days ago||Yea, I agree.||
Having a better overall record with some big bowl wins could mitigate a lackluster OSU performance, but overall let me ask you this. Would you rather have:
1. Lackluster 3-4 loss seasons, but beating OSU on a regular basis (beating OSU in Columbus from time to time, and not losing to them in AA)
2. Great 1-2 loss seasons (maybe a BCS bowl), but losing to OSU on regular basis.
At this point I would rather have #1. We have dug ourselves into hole with OSU over the past decade. They are on the upswing again and if we can't hold our ground, I don't know if I could handle another run they had in the 2000s. We have the talent, and BH "gets it", so if he cannot at least hold home field with OSU, then I think we should begin to look elsewhere. It would be a hard decision, but we have to set a standard and expectation. If a person cannot live up to that expectation, then we need someone who can. No one person is above this expectation.
|1 week 6 days ago||Great column!||
I would like to underscore how important this year is in determining the fate of BH as coach at Michigan. And I think this will largely be based on how we do against OSU this year. Hoke was playing with house money last year, but if we lose to OSU this year, things could start to look grim for BH. If we look ahead to 2014, that OSU team will be absolutely stacked. Let's assume we lose to them in Columbus in 2014 for arguments sake. So, what we will have is after 4 years of Hoke, only one win against OSU (one of the worst OSU team in most people's lifetimes) and likely no B10 championships. Based on Hoke's own expectations, he would clearly be failing as Michigan's head coach and have no house money to play with. He would therefore, need to knock it out of the park in 2015. Pressure will be on.
So, that's why this year (in particular our performance against OSU) will be the determining factor is deciding if Hoke is the next Bo, or Hoke is the next Weis.

|2 weeks 5 days ago||Well, by that logic||
According the DOJ, the majority of murders to white people are at the hands of black people. I guess "those damn blacks can't be trusted".
|4 weeks 2 days ago||So by that logic...||
...the availability of playing college football for a white person is few and far between. If look at the total population of white people and look at how few are represented on the field compared to the population, it makes you wonder. Right?

"that head coaching positions for African American coaches are few and far between"

...I think the Henne one looks better. In my humble and correct opinion.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Yes!||
But I will assume that he thinks Detroit is an awesome city which would put things in perspective.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Whoa!||
It's one thing to hate the teams, but something entirely different to hate the whole damn city.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||Ohio cities are not too bad||
And they are certainly better than Detroit. But none are better than Ann Arbor.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||Oops.||
My bad. And good catch!

When you think your race is superior to others (I.w. more culturally proud) = racism.
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||I'd like to know...||
...how you measure "culturally proud". You kinda come off as a racist asshat thinking your culture is superior to others.
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||I can see your point with regards to undergrad...||
...but if you take in account all programs, undergrad and graduate (you know all the programs that make the "school"), Michigan is a better school school.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Wow.||
Throwing Detroit area white people AND Kentuckians under the bus. Accusing both of being racists.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Wrong||
"Having said that, you are absolutely right that there are just as many in-state students who aren't diehard fans as out-of-state students."

I thought it was a nickname. Like Johnny Football was good at football.
And Steve Bench rode the...oh nevermind.

...which means you actually do have some amount of care for Chicago area high schools. If not, then wouldn't have any care that you could lessen if you wanted to.
