to a bunch of local coaches. Do you think they don't know that we did miles better than MSU? What is lower than sh*t? This is just a clever bit of salesmanship/sh*t by Brady that slyly lets area coaches know the big dogs are back where they belong. . . or heading there a lot faster than the Spartans. May give a nice little goose to 2014 recruiting.

I respect and agree with the sentiment, but I'm a little surprised at the language. Hoke usually manages to coachspeak a little better and talk about not meeting expectations, etc.

This is at the annual MHSFCA coaches clinic in Kalamazoo. It is generally all high school coaches from across the state. Language like this is the norm, as I have sat through many of these clinics over the years. It is nothing, compared to some of the classroom type discussions that go on over the few days up there. Colorful language beware!! Very good time up there though, always look forward to this clinic.

When boats used to transport manure, there was often serious risk of the manure getting wet when stored below deck, which would produce methane gas and cause an explosion if a spark occurred.  So the ships started marking the containers SHIT for:





So in reality, Brady's language wasn't really all that bad, now was it?

The word is likely derived from Old English, having the nouns scite (dung, attested only in place names) and scitte (diarrhoea), and the verb scītan (to defecate, attested only in bescītan, to cover with excrement); eventually it morphed into Middle English schītte (excrement), schyt (diarrhoea) and shiten (to defecate), and it is virtually certain that it was used in some form by preliterate Germanic tribes at the time of the Roman Empire. The word may be further traced to Proto-Germanic *skit-, and ultimately to Proto-Indo-European *skheid- "cut, separate", the same root believed to have become the word shed. The word has several cognates in modern Germanic languages, such as German Scheiße, Dutch schijt, Swedish skit, Icelandic skítur, Norwegian skitt etc. Ancient Greek had 'skor' (gen. 'skatos' hence 'scato-'), from Proto-Indo-European *sker-, which is likely unrelated.

Either that, or you're full of shit.

Tell me about it. I don't post that often, usually just to snark away.  I was cunt-kicked last week for adding to the Alex Anzalone/Analzone convo. Harmless, I thought. Oh wells...
