...because you hurly-burlies insist on standing at the football games and it is the only way I can see over you. Down in front, young man.

Do they publish the Wunderlichs for each campus?
|1 week 5 days ago||True.||
And it's a bad comparison. All of the UC schools he cites are pretty excellent in different disciplines (Davis: Fermentation Sciences!).

...which in this case seemed to have worked. Too much civility makes boring football - I don't hold anything against Dantonio or Hart.

...level of nuance that the overall conversation is missing. I guess it would have been hard on twitter for Harbaugh to say that he was proud of some of the things that Chris Kyle, did, but not his serial (and self-serving) mendacity.

...but for me the metrics that matter are wins on the court, championships, and graduation rates. To read some posts on this board you'd think that there was an alternate national championship awarded on the basis of what might have been except for injuries, players gone to the nba, auspicious seeding and bad calls. Being close to winning is good, but winning is better, and it is a silly thing to knock on a college basketball coach for recruiting and coaching good four year college players and having limited success at creating pros - I don't think that is really part of the job.
Credit to Izzo for maintaining a consistent, quality program, and Coach Beilein for the beginnings of one, conjured out of pocket lint that appears that it may have a higher ceiling.

...we synthesized Michigan's enormous tradition, progressiveness and culture of arts into a renovation of the Big House? It could be designed by one of the most esteemed architects in the world, feature the words to the Victors in 20 foot high letters on a traditional maize background, and...
Hang on. That's probably not the solution.

...but last I heard Clark was facing a fourth degree felony charge. Clark plead guilty to a previous felony charge and stayed on the team after a one game suspension. Our spartan friend is surely facing a felony and will probably have a meaningless suspension for some amount of out of conference play. I fail to see how any of this demonstrates our ethical superiority, or is anything worth laughing about.

I am putting more weight on the Gibbons situation. Both the player and coaching/administration response struck me as disgusting and indefensible, but I recognize (but don't agree) with the reasons that others don't feel the same way.

...Pot v. Kettle. Review our student athlete issues over the Hoke era and you'll remember that more than once our former guys did much more than threaten violence.

...a discussion about relative villainy is going to be very useful. Im not speaking to you specifically, but I think we can all agree that our recent record is nothing to be proud of, and until we are squeaky clean (probably impossible in the current climate) it would be best to avoid celebrating the misdeeds of other programs.

...you could learn a lot from Bill Walton. While you are here glorifying hate, glorifying dirty play, glorifying flagrant fouls and selfish individual play, I'm going to celebrate the birthdays of peace and love with Jack Kerouac, Liza Minnelli and James Taylor.

...that it is a little early to be assessing Harbaugh's career at Michigan.
But then again he is still undefeated.
