I’m not assuming, I’m reading what you wrote about your own experience earlier in this thread.

 ‘I know a number of guys who have their own auto shops. Consumer reports and whatnot have some value, but I trust cumulative real world experience directly from the guys who work on them more than anything else. ‘

01/17/2019 - 5:12pm That may or may not be true,…

That may or may not be true, but what you’ve heard anecdotally from a few friends who work in auto repaishops is probably not the best way to get the answer to get the answer.

I think part of the problem is that talking to people in autoshops may give you anecdotal information about repair costs but tells you very little about overalll reliability.   A mechanic who repairs few EVs very well may tell a friend that EVs are a pain in the ass to maintain because they are so different than much of what they are usually repairing, working on one may both stick out more and have provided them with more challenges as they are less familiar with them.

Is that like just your opinion man or do you have any facts to back it up?

According to consumer reports the 2015 Leaf recieved better than average marks on reliability from owners

Making a comment on a message board does not equate to being triggered.   Ironically you seem way more perturbed about the issue than Faux Mo does

You do relize that at Michigan, much of the money for pristine facilities for non-revenue sports comes from donations, not from football revenue

Clemson’s limebacker coach makes $350,000.    Ohio State does however pay their assistants a total of nearly $1,500,000 more than we do.

It would be really good to see you back up your dislike for Jay with some actual facts.   There are any number of decisions to criticize Jim Harbaugh about at this point, Jay seems to have proved he can be a good position coach at this level.   Other than the nepotism angle, do you have any evidence to suggest that he is a weak link on the coaching staff?

For what its worth 247 ranked him as one of the 30 best up and coming coaches under 30.

In the first three quarters of the game, the offense only managed to score 13 points.   Yes the defense exploded, but when there was actually a chance to take charge in that game, the offense did very little either.

What facts did he offer?    None of the three tweets included any facts, even though they came from three people who should be in a position to offer facts if there are any to be offered.

You were clear.  I am the one who wasn’t.

I realize the link wan’t directly related to your analysis (as you were clear that you did not include all transfers and were focused on a very specific question).

i just thought that since you started a fact based discussion, it fit here better than the other threads.    If I was more ambitious, I would have calculated the actual full attrition rates for those classes and made my own thread.   Since I didn’t, I just posted it in yours.

12/17/2018 - 4:57pm For what it’s worth,…

For what it’s worth, attrition in the 35% to 40% range isn’t that unusual.

Suggesting something is wrong and then backing it up with nothing is not taking the high road.

Do you have a source for the fact that Clemso has me of the lowest attrition rates in college football?

Presumably his perceived position on the depth chart factored into his decision to tramsfer?   I imagine if he saw a reasonable root to the field he would not bee as eager to transfer.

So I read through your posts trying to figure out if you are a Michigan fan or an Ohio State one (based on this post I would have assumed OSU, but I couldn’t figure out why you’d have more than 4000 points).   I presume Michigan as you seem to refer to Michigan as us and we in other posts.   If so, how do you get three degrees from Ohio State yet still root for Michigan?   If not, why would you possibly spend so much ti,e on a Michigan site?

Interestingly, Beilein did not have a winning conference record until his 5th season at Michigan and didn’t make it past the first weekend of the tournament until his 7th season at Michigan.

We are having more severe thunderstorm events.   Studies suggest linked to warming.

it is a little confusing because the commenter starts by talking about play calling in general but then focuses on the more specific question of complexity of the offense, but it’s not that hard to understand.

Seems like a strange example of a late night post to incite a tirade about the dangers of posting while drinking.   While its not the most well thought out post I’ve ever seen, yours seems less well thought out and over the top.

Not a Tigers fan (or even a big baseball fan) so I assumed that this was in reference to the earlier deleted thread.   It is only time before one of those types of threads escalates beyond words :).

09/05/2018 - 8:03am On a similar vein, I’ve…

On a similar vein, I’ve wondered what impact coming from the pros had on the 2016 recruiting cycle.   Coaches that come from other college teams still have the relationships they’ve been developing with so e recruits since high school.  Harbaugh had to start from scratch.    I suspect that this need to build relationships was part of what led to the first summer camp tour.

09/04/2018 - 5:13pm just because some people…

just because some people choose to politicize an issue, that doesn’t make it a political issue. If you immediately jump to the conclusion that Harbaugh is doing this for political reasons, I would suggest you have the issue, not Harbaugh or the Athletic Department

Because Meyer obviously knew about the 2015 events.    Other than Urban and a bunch of Ohio State fans everyone can see that.

Very funny.   Mr Brightside, please reply to your diary ao that we can provide you with upvotes.   Yes, I know upvotes of no recordable value, but upvotes nonetheless.

There was a comment about Harbaugh though 

‘Mark Dantonio [is underrated]. He gets no respect because he isn't flashy and in the same state with a flashy guy that is unproven and hasn't won a big game yet."

it amuses me when people speak of Harbsugh’s three years at Michigan as if that is his entire career.  He proved himself at Stanford.   He proved himself at San Fransisco.   And he will prove himself at Michigan too.

If you are as grossly negligent as the MD coaching staff, you darn well better be fired if not worse.   Football is a dangerous sport and players are going to get hurt.   They (and there parents) should expect that if someone needs medical attention, they get it promptly.

all the other stuff aside, a competent staff should know how ho deal with heat stroke and heat exhaustion.

To me that fits under the umbrella of common sense.   Only a complete fuckin idiot would not realize the risk.

Isn’t the only thing they had to do is confirm that currently eligible players have all the shoes they were given?   I would hope that would not take that long.
