We are using this thread to collect all the (fixable) feedback for the new site in one spot, and if you're seeing it on the main page it means I've updated the OP content.

If you've noticed any bugs in the site post them here and if you have constructive criticism we very much appreciate it. The developers are also going to be in this thread. Even if we can't always respond, you're being heard.

UPDATE 8/23/2018:

We met at HUEL HQ today and worked through a lot of things.

Not sure if this is gonna stay up, but it's a pretty major development.  Congrats to the Michigan folk on this board.  Looks like you're gonna be able to smoke weed recreationally soon...

If this is treading too close to politics, feel free to delete.  But it's not often you get to see the repeal of a decades long prohibition.  Guess you won't have to head over to Windsor to try marijuana for your first time...

Engler moves to weaken compliance at MSU

Engler moves to weaken compliance at MSU

This Free Press article demonstrates why Engler is not in the least bit interested in accomplishing any positive change at MSU.  He will resist any effort at putting teeth into a compliance culture.  It is to the detriment of the school, and apparently Mosallem is the only trustee who recognizes this.

OT-ish: Which pro sport has changed the most in the last 10-15 years?

OT-ish: Which pro sport has changed the most in the last 10-15 years?

OT-ish, Friday, bye improvement week, etc

I saw a stat that made me think of this the other day - the 2003 "Seven Seconds or Less" Phoenix Suns would play with the slowest pace of any team in today's NBA. They were crazy fast.

Each league has seen a major shift in the last 10-15 years, which is the greatest change? Why?

NFL - Passing explosion (mostly rule changes)

NHL - Speed & skill explosion (definitely post-lockout rule changes)

MLB - Reliever dominance/so many fewer balls in play (more analytics than rule changes?)

The Last Great Mud Bowl

The Last Great Mud Bowl

$500 bought a lot, I mean, a lot, of water in October 1975.

Until the City of Ann Arbor found the meter cheater at the SAE house that year, it had been free.

The device was annually hooked up the week prior to the Mud Bowl; scheduled that year for 10:00 a.m. October 25,  Homecoming, back in the day when toe met leather at 1:30.

(not sure how to place jpg files now, mudbowl 75 pic should be here)

This morning, Michigan Radio (Michigan's NPR station) launched the first episode of their podcast Believed, focused on the team of women who were able to shed light on the crimes of Larry Nassar and ultimately achieve a conviction. 

Michigan Radio did a ton of amazing coverage on the trial (as well as being the team that broke the story of the Flint Water Crisis several years ago) and their findings are contained within this series.
