"No love lost" and "could care less" are not comparable cases.

While the meaning of "no love lost" has narrowed in recent centuries, it is not generally misused:  That "no love is lost" between two people suggests that, e.g., while their relationship has ended, love has not been diminished--because they never loved each other in the first place.

"Could care less" is illogical and is the evident result of the inattentive misuse of "could not care less."

That's probably why we don't say "no hate lost"...

Natural language isn't logical. If I say "I didn't eat ALL of the cookies." Logically, it just means there's some cookie(s) I didn't eat. It would be entirely possible I didn't eat any. But when we say that we're implying we ate some of the cookies.

It is also possible that there were never any cookies to eat, which would support your reasoning.  But, if you are talking about eating all of the cookies, it seems that there should at least be some cookies, right?

It is what it is, because it's exactly fucking backward, which is not surprising to me at all.

Also looks like An insider (maybe sam) switched crystal ball for Harrison from Michigan to undecided...crazy how one loss affects recruiting for Michigan but not for teams like Tennessee and Florida with mediocre seasons.  Hoping there isn’t as much attrition as is being implied because it’s not looking good on the remaining players on the board and I’m not to excited about grabbing plan c players if there’s going to be hope of beating OSU ever again

To me...I’m just perplexed that the narrative around the programs differs so greatly Michigan lost 2 games and it seems like people are talking about the team as mediocre Florida is 8-5 and seems like nationally they are better...read an article today where ,former commit, David Reese is dismissing Michigan as abland bowl game opponent for his mediocre team and wants to play UCF.

No I have just forgot to type the players name in my post I corrected it via the edit function...seemed like the writing was on the wall for Gray which is too bad the class is good but with some of these players, Gray included, it could have been very exciting

Running back recruiting outside of Charbonnet has been kind of a disaster.

Kingston Davis: Gone

Kareem Walker: Gone

O'Maury Samuels: Can't sniff the field

Hassan Haskins: Moved to Viper

Michael Barrett: Moved to linebacker, then to WR

Christian Turner: Too early to tell

Chris Evans: Been a nice player for UM, but miscast as a RB and probably a better slot WR


That's not getting it done.
