This is excellent. Would read again. +1.

Who goes if Iowa and Wisconsin win out and NW only loses to Iowa?

Were you paid to make this post?

Old obviously. But hoping that this is a sort of '2 steps back so we can make 10 steps forward' type deal. The old one sounded like it was at the end of the road with the ability to make improvements. Supposedly 3.0 has lots of abilities for improvements. Hopefully they happen.

And yeah - it would be really nice if there was some kind of communication to the effect - "Hey, we're aware of the giant pile of suckiness that is being complained about. X and Y and Z are going to be fixed. A, B and C aren't changing - get used to it". site and all that - so not getting too worked up about it.

12/12/2017 - 2:55pm yes

but I'm pretty sure there's more to life than that.

09/21/2017 - 3:03pm this is a good comment.

I don't often laugh out loud when reading through the comments. But when I do, I log in just to upvote. +1 to you sir.

The Bible miniseries on netflix. End thread.

04/05/2017 - 2:56pm yeah

The funny thing is the first title before it was edited was something like "M bsktbl looking at Wright State tsfr..."

02/28/2017 - 9:31am car mechanics

If you don't know much about cars - is there any general advice for a good way to finding a good/fair mechanic? Every time I take my car in, I'm not sure if I'm getting ripped off or not. If anyone has any favorites in the Ann Arbor area - I'd love to hear them.

I'll have whatever you're drinking

10/29/2016 - 8:12pm 8-0

We're 8-0 and have looked quite good the majority of the time. Anyone who is panicking must hate everything. Must be a depressing way to live.

09/26/2016 - 10:39pm make sure to include

Make sure to include how many Top Gold Medals Chef Jan won. He may not be impressed with just a single gold medal, but a 6 time winner is pretty convincing.

08/29/2016 - 9:14pm watching with a baby?

A bit "special" circumstances here. Will be in Petoskey for the weekend, heading home (Ann Arbor) on Saturday. We have a 6 month old. Ideally we find somewhere quiet-ish to watch the game in Petoskey area before heading home afterwards. Not so interested in a loud place with a thousand TVs (BW3-ish). Any advice?

08/16/2016 - 4:11pm playing dead

I'm hoping for the "playing dead" play. One of the all time greats!



07/22/2016 - 9:26am sneak peak

06/09/2016 - 1:38pm few more

Can't disagree with a lot of the ones that have been mentioned so far. A few additions:

- Nepal, watching the sun rise over the Himalayas

- Maasai Mara in Kenya

Also pretty tough to beat anywhere on Lake Michigan or Lake Superior in the less busy areas. 

06/07/2016 - 12:59pm too low

too low.

06/07/2016 - 8:36am always chuckled at this one

05/31/2016 - 11:08am Is a subaru worth it?

My wife and I and kid live in Ann Arbor, and it appears to be some kind of rite of passage to own a Subaru around here - so we're currently looking at them (ok - its actually because we want a safe vehicle, larger than our civic, that's good in weather).

They seem to have a reputation for being expensive to repair/ that accurate? What about the dreaded head gasket problem that everyone talks about? Was that only on older models?

Has anyone looked at Subarus (forester or outback) and ended up getting something else? If so, what did you buy?

05/10/2016 - 10:04am Question: Which camp is best?

False: Black bear

03/18/2016 - 5:03pm 1-1 > 0-1

So UM has already definitively had a better season than MSU right?

01/27/2016 - 10:29am fictional monkeys

Everyone knows fictional talking monkeys are much more preferable when looking places for advice.

pics or it didn't happen!

12/14/2015 - 12:41pm Easy. Hire a Rain Shaman.

He would simply cause a torrential downpour whenever the opponent was on offense. Greg Mattison could still do the actual coordinating - but it would be much easier when the offense is basically blinded by the rain.

Oh yeah - and he would hold OSU to around 14 pts/game.

12/04/2015 - 11:14am heh.

Man, am i the only one who determines arbitrary rooting interests based on the physical appearance of the team's coach?

It was a joke. sort of.

12/02/2015 - 2:36pm Harbaugh

Harbaugh. John Harbaugh.

11/27/2015 - 10:17am beat me to it

Ah yep - except I at least helpfully posted a link through google :)

11/27/2015 - 10:16am this might work

This may get around the paywall:

11/06/2015 - 10:49am 25 - 6

25 - 6. Michigan

11/06/2015 - 8:49am Don't think its the pager id...

I don't think its the pager id...those looked right to me when I was looking at it. The duplicated view_dom_id looked like the problem. Maybe a bug in Drupal:

11/05/2015 - 8:07pm Don't know anything about Drupal...

I don't know anything about Drupal - but taking a quick look at the javascript, it looks like the problem is because a couple of the views in Drupal.settings.views.ajaxViews are ending up with a duplicate view_dom_id. When the click handlers are added to the pager, it only processes each view_dom_id once, so the duplicate ones end up getting click handlers mapped to the other views. (Which would explain why you get the second page of recent diaries back when you click the board posts pager - its mapped to the click handler for the recent diaries pager).

I don't know anything about how those view objects are generated though.

11/05/2015 - 6:47pm pro-tip

And another pro-tip, once you have that URL, you can just update that last number to '2' or '3', etc. to go back additional pages instead of 'open in new tab' every time. 

10/19/2015 - 2:32pm he's gonna play school

He's actually going to OSU to play school?
