Not good.

Note: take irony pill for this one...

Did others see this? Sent to Alumni Assn members earlier this afternoon by email.

The football program may be falling down a black hole, but hey, "Tailgater Magazine Ranks U-M No.19 Tailgate College." In better times I suppose we would be all hassling over the ranking.

Am having a hard time finding a date on this, but it refers to Homecoming which means November 1 against Indiana. It says here that President Schlissel will be on hand.

On a humorous note - I suppose that in Florida they're called "tailgators" (boooooooooooooo, that's bad...)

And OT: the email also points out that Blimpy Burgers is now located next to the Fleetwood. Sounds like bad planning to me, I hope that the one doesn't drive the other out of business.

Why is this guy being mentioned?  Even if half of the stuff in the SI piece is true, he is still a huge scum bag.

The Anti-Boycott Movement

The Anti-Boycott Movement

I posted this in the UTL III boycott thread below but think we need to take a step back and think about the impact of the rage movement:

If you truly love Michigan you are going to show the fuck up to games and root on the team. At this point, It’s a foregone conclusion Brady Hoke is out of a job at the end of the year and Brandon is holding on for dear life. Both have done irreparable damage to their careers regardless of attendance / boos.  I promise you guys, we will have blood. Be patient.

 

What is totally unacceptable in my book is abandoning the team.

 

Ya they suck, ya they have shitty coaches, ya it’s not a lot of fun watching them but these young men have worked their entire lives for the opportunity to win football games for Michigan. The seniors especially deserve our respect and attendance. These young men may never play again, and deserve to be sent out with dignity (not to empty stadiums and red Ohio colored fucking t shirts).

 

I would hope that more people on this blog can start to have a little bit of empathy for some of the guys whose careers are winding down and didn’t turn out like they, or we, had hoped (don’t even get me started on the young men with NFL potential who may never get a shot due to coaching indignities).

 

Do what’s right and support the young men

Perhaps even more troubling, or indicative of how Michigan athletics is operating, is that on Monday afternoon, nearly 48 hours after this incident, Hoke said he still hadn't discussed it with his boss, athletic director Dave Brandon.

Not at all? How is that possible?
