|1 week 5 days ago||The worst part||
If there were more graphic design, advertising, marketing, communication and music majors involved I'd be all for them showing their enthusiasm.
Using university funds to hire someone outside the university is asinine though. This screams management/DB CEO behavior. Do we have people in house with a clue who could complete this project on the cheap? "Yeah maybe but..... these guys are expensive so they must be good"
6 months later..... "Turns out we paid for crap, but lets not admit it, lets just try to push it down people's throats so we're not failures. I mean we're awesome, if you don't agree you suck!".

If only you could get around it by stating Not Safe for Google Adsense.
Not an unreasonable request. This isn't 4chan or somethingawful.
|1 week 6 days ago||U mad Bro?||
While I agree, and this is vastly better done than most rants, more a dissertation that a rant perhaps?
I feel like you're beating a dead horse. At some point, we stopped blaming Rich Rodriguez and Ed Martin. Maybe it's the opposite and it's too soon so I just don't want to hear it though.
I have a feeling you're secretly wishing he was still in charge.

Used to run in the winter meets during HS.
Of course way more important things also happened.

"...offer them stuff like rides and candy, and then ..."
"...they'll like totally do me favors"
|2 weeks 4 days ago||NOT worried||
We lose very little(sorry Caris you're boss but sadly didn't get to play this year).
Return everything+health+not being majority non-Kentucky true freshman. Meaning, we could actually run our effecient death from above offense(probably).
The team looks exhausted and flat in OT. Whether this is no direction or leadership/lack of depth/conditioning of freshman+ravaged by flu recently I don't know. I think a combination of all the above.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Why did they neg?||
This is 100% true and was even said during the game, and now in your sig. Since I noticed it's in your sig, I won't bother reciting the rule though.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||F the haters he's 18 19?||
Dude is a true freshman. He actually had a stretch where he made some great offensive rebounds. Sadly he couldn't finish. I think it's good to admit he has some serious things to work on in the offseason but lay off of him.
I think he probably was able to out outclass opponents in AAU/HS and College is a shock to him. Combine that with Beilein's system and I'm really not worried. If we weren't missing everyone to the NBA and injuries no one would be whining.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||McGary vs Kaminsky||
I would have loved to see McGary RAGE through Kaminsky this season.
I have a feeling he would have let Haas put him in less headlocks(I give Max credit for dealing with that mauling).
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I agree||
Now if music students wanted to be given the resources to try to create something themselves.
Maybe Peppers being a rapper(assuming music major), wanted to some sort of collab with other students, then see where it went and have it professionally retouched and paid for with CSG money if it was approved then that may be okay.
Hype video, something to play on the giant televisions instead of a game from 1960 or an ad for having your family reunion in the big house or w/e. That I think would make sense. Or if the band wanted to be involved in writing something original instead of piping in SNA/Sweet Caroline.
Trying to use university funding to hire a rapper is retarded though. People who think this is an idea to replace victors need to clean the wax out of their ears though. I doubt that was ever on the tables. I do think funding students to make something internally would be useful for their experience and portfolio's though, even if never approved/used.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||That's sad||
It's really unfortunate he'll be playing his former team, and has to be stressful for the coach. I think the grad transfer is good, the players/students have given 4 years and graduated. If they can have a better situation good. It sucks for their previous team and coach but I think they need to understand, "Hey goodluck on the higher stage, hope you make it", or "Hey that power 5 graduate degree is probably more prestigious and will help you land a job".
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I agree although||
He more or less said 1 player at each of those 3 positions.
Still upvoted though.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I'm just joking but...||
Being a complete dick and clarifying it with a joke, is like saying, "No offense but, You're so annoying, I want to torture you until you give up begging me to murder you and start to enjoy it".
The reference was good, not great but overall it seemed like a front page rant editorial done while drinking whisky(or spirit of choice).
I know the majority and Brian hate RaWk and piped in. Now a composed song the band could play, with recent references would be neat for a few years. Idea isn't awful but as expected a 19 yo kid who is full of themself thinks their ideas are golden and haven't a clue about what is actually good versus sounds neat to them, they hung over bro.
|3 weeks 10 hours ago||Hopefully||
It's our offense on the field more. Looking forward to wanting to see our offense on the field versus waiting until the pain is over to hope our defense creates a turn over in field position to score a field goal.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Probably Compression shorts||
Often worn in crossfit/weight lifting, can provide additional support/spring and stabilization.
Seems ridiculous but I can attest it's actually beneficial when I lift.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Dantonio's Downfall||
He'll flame out like Woody Hayes. Except he'll bite a guy in the neck, instead of throwing a punch.
TBH, I like Dantonio.
He has done an amazing job, if he wasn't our rival, and doing everything and anything in his power to motivate and elevate his school, mostly at our detriment then we'd probably applaud him. He looks angry, mean and determined at all times, and like a creepy vampire. Yes he has more tolerance with law issues, but they're MSU, not UM it's to be expected. The dirty play is my only qualm, but I don't know if that's Dantonio, Narduzzi, or MSU culture.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||In Missouri||
Indiana, Minnesota or perhaps even Utah. Gf said she was interested in a "Western Trip", heh. Got her hooked on the basketball team(Particularly w/ Stauskas/Levert), but football has been a hard sell since Denard left, hopefully a new star emerges.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Go Blue!||
I would like a speedy receiver and don't remember seeing other than Perry don't believe any other WR's(a few ath that could convert).
Love me a homerun threat with speed and then putting the athletic corners that can catch on defense to be ball hawks.
|4 weeks 8 hours ago||Jay Harbaugh||
I'd laugh if a recruit said something along the lines of, "I don't want to tell xyz coach I changed my mind they're going to pressure me".
Followed up by something similar to the cell phone commercials saying they'd call to cancel previous service for you. I can only imagine him calling a rival school, "Yeah so Recuit A is going to go to Michigan instead. I know your first instinct is to call him, but he doesn't want that. Leave him alone and respect his decision".
Meanwhile coach on other end...
|4 weeks 8 hours ago||Recognition Cheaper than Compensation||
A load of companies are trying to focus on recognition instead of bonuses or additional compensation for employees.
I think there is a point that at some point you hit a diminishing return on raising salaries to maintain workers but that a majority of workers especially those at the bottom would prefer more money. Then again, there is a large group that'll complain no matter what they get paid so I suppose it'd be more effective on them.
|4 weeks 8 hours ago||Aargh||
How dare thou get my hopes up!
|4 weeks 11 hours ago||I"m too slow||
I logged in to post something along these lines, refreshed, read rest of comments and not surprisingly, was beat by quite a bit of time.

In Beilein we trust.
Let the Buckeyes be nuts.

Angry Eduardo etc? plz?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Totally||
As someone who paid for their entire college, had massive loans and worked full time during this is on the money.
You can go out to the bar and blow a ton of cash, or go out to dinner, I cannot afford to go out to eat, I have ramen, rice and hot pockets because I can afford it, not sushi. Nope can't afford to go skiing, guess what? I'm working that weekend two jobs, and every single break.
I had friends of all economic status and have done tons of world travelling and like sushi etc but hard to be friends and in the "in-circle", of "rich friends", when you can never be included in things because you cannot afford them.
I borrowed 5 different cars during college but never owned one.
But wow yeah that comment was over-generalizing based upon a few of his ignorant extended family. Just as people over-generalize based on a few rich pricks out of touch.
Your perception is reality though and everyone has a different perception based upon their environment and surroundings. My suggestion, get uncomfortable, see things in another light, talk less and listen more.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Good for Bellomy||
If he could start and make a good showing of his final year close to his family it would make me very happy.
I know you're being sarcastic but still, would be pretty cool.
One year under Harbaugh and he sweeps in takes control of another school, would be tight.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Unsaid Admissions requirement||
You have to choose between eating a lb of cheese or your 40 time(That's 40oz of milk).
Out of staters have an especially tough time.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Well||
You realize you're responding to a dude whose favorite receiver was a mythical character on the UM football team for years....
|4 weeks 5 days ago||So you're saying there's a chance||
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Which Time zone?||
Is it the time zone the coach is in? The recruit?
If it is the timezone the recruit is in, could see Harbaugh on a sat phone in the middle of the pacific.
