I do not find anything useful in a post such as this. I believe that everyone here is well aware of the differences between Jim Harbaugh and Michigan vs Dantonio and MSU. MSU makes me sad...I find no joy in their (continued) depravity.

Montae Nicholson was a Michigan recruit until we were full at his position.  He was good enough to get to the pros.  People thought Michigan had poor judgement not taking him.  I didn't read the particulars of the fight, but our own Jim Harbaugh broke his hand on Jim Kelley's jaw when he hit him.  (Jim Kelley actually has jaw cancer now, which isn't cool, but there's a Chuck Norris joke there.)    Jim Harbaugh also told the story a couple of years ago about getting whooped in a back alley brawl outside a country bar when he was with the bears.

Every school is going to have its percentage of dickheads. My brother-in-law played HS football with a guy who had a long and storied career at UM. But back then, this guy was an obnoxious loudmouth drunk who liked to start shit and thought he could whip the entire bar. One night when they couldn't settle him down and the cops were on the way, his own teammate had to coldcock him and carry him out of the bar.

So Nicholson may be a POS, but we've had a few of our own.

He should've saved a few of those hits for on the field. Then maybe the Redskins wouldn't have had to trade for Clinton-Dix, and Nicholson would still have a starting job.

I just watched the video.  Pretty severe beating he inflicted on the victim.

Apparently the guy he assulted comitted the unforgivable sin of honking his horn at him.  Definitely something worth going to jail and throwing your career away over.  I mean if you dont beat people after having them honk their horn pretty soon word will get out and EVERYBODY will be honking their horn at you.

Because..   they're stupid?

I dont know if you've noticed this or not but recently it came to my attention that Mensa had precious few NFL players as members.  Almost none actually. 

There's a reason why 78% of all NFL players are either under finacial distress or bankrupt within 2 years of retirement despite many making more money than most of us will see in our lifetime.

I am not a bum. I'm a jerk. I once had wealth, power, and the love of a beautiful woman. Now I only have two things: my friends, and... uh... my thermos. Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...

You've seen the video, but the kicker is even better.  The woman he was with also fought, only she used a bottle on the woman with the guy that Nicholson beat.  She was charged with malicious intent to injure - a more serious charge than Nicholson received (simple assault).  So, Nicholson bailed himself out, and let her stay in jail.  As of ~6AM this morning, he has not posted her bail.

Maybe you think differently, but it seems to me that he should have helped out the (ahem) lady that helped him in the fight.  He's the one that clearly has the money between the two.  But, in a typically Sparty kind of move, he lets her sleep it off in a cell.  What a schmuck...

To be fair, drunken brawls happen everywhere. I've never partaken in any, but some guys are just wired where they like to fight at bars. I don't get it, but I have a buddy who goes to UofM med school that likes to fight at bars. 

Its never gotten out of hand, but I also had some other buddies that are a little more physically imposing (collegiate offensive tackles) and they used to get phsical at bars. Got into some fights with bouncers.


Again, I've never done it and I personally think fighting makes you look weak, not strong. But this shit just happens
