Proposed banned terms for both sides of RR argument

Submitted by UMdad on November 27th, 2010 at 5:00 PM

OK, I can't turn on the radio or the computer without being inundated with terms people throw out ad nauseum without really adding anything new to the discussion.  Whichever side you fall on in the RR discussion, I propose we ban the following words/ phrases.  Feel free to add your own.

Michigan Man - we get it, you still have a picture of Bo in your office.

Uninformed alumni / fanbase - You don't have any more information than everyone else who watched the games this year, I could give a shit how nice your chart looks

Maybe D. Brandon could either just shit or get off the pot in terms of RichRod and GERG...and either give him the vote of confidence or move on.

We got 15 practices and a bowl game to get to...as well as the rest of the recruiting season.

How difficult is it to be DickRod to deal with these daffodil haters that are nothing but snugglenut kool-aid drinkers that meet Rosenberg, Sharp, and Hennings in truck stop glory hole fun parks. Bunch of gigglesharting wannabe pimpmobile ass clowns.

I don't know, those words were kind of fun....

"Major Violations" - no need to explain, but I still see this used once in awhile. Automatic credibility loss.

"We expected this" - Did we expect to lose by 30 to OSU? I sure as hell didn't. Did we expect our offense to sputter in spectacular fashion? I sure as hell didn't. Yes, 7 wins was expected, but it's a bit more complicated than that.

Les Miles: because he is garbage and not coming

Underclassmen: because this was his third year, the "transition takes time, he doesn't have his people" argument is getting old

Cosign on "DickFraud" and "Michigan Man"

"Elite offense." we don't have one, no matter what the yards/game indicates, so unless the sentence is " RichRod has failed to build an elite offense," let's scrap this from any argument about the state of Michigan football circa 2010.

Are you serious!?! RichRod defense point #1 consists of something like: "he has built an elite offense like oregons! We are top five in yardage per game!"

No snark intended, but if you haven't seem that line of reasoning five hundred times on here, you're not paying attention!

"...thinks he's still in the Big East" / "...thinks he's still in Morgantown" / "...doesn't realize he's in the Big Ten" is probably at the top of my list, followed by "...doesn't understand the rivalry."
