I did not watch that game and have no idea what you are talking about. +1, however, for use of the term “hideously enjoyable.”

12/21/2018 - 12:27pm I agree with you and it's…

I agree with you and it's INFURIATING.  

I do not have the expertise needed to create a website, but I would personally contribute $100 (or more if needed) to anyone who would create a place to put all the Nassar info.  I'm envisioning a website dedicated to the timeline of these events with MSU's responses at every intersection. 

If the "time capsule" was done well/cleanly, it could be a great place to direct people who don't believe what's happened, or want to just respond with "Brendan Gibbons" every time we bring it up.  I know we end some posts about MSU with "FYS" (fuck you sparty for those that don't know).  I'd love to end a message with "" or whatever.

12/16/2018 - 12:45pm Absolutely.  When we weren't…

Absolutely.  When we weren't covering crossing routes, you needed to change your shirt.  You didn't and that's why we lost.  You gotta be able to make adjustments, dude.

I think Gary is already 1st round right now, but he’s going to absolutely destroy the combine. 

Every year there is a dude who jumps way up because of performance there. I realize you can’t get better than first round, but I would still buy his stock now as it’s only going to go up.

I keep staring at the picture of that chapter intro and it makes me so happy.  Thanks for sharing, OP.

In 4 seasons under Harbaugh, we have our second NYD6-quality bowl. 

In the previous 8, we only appeared in one. I’m not over the moon over playing Florida again, but this is still ultimately a good thing.

The only thing cool about a co-divisional championship is that when some knucklehead is like “har har, scUM hasn’t even won the division,” you can reply that technically they have. Then pile on with whatever academic or athletic program accomplishments, of which there are legion, that suit your needs.

12/02/2018 - 7:28am I don't understand why the…

I don't understand why the committee doesn't make statements with how they slot 5+.  The bowl arrangements are important for all the players/teams, but they could do a lot of good for college football moving forwards.

-Drop SEC teams and say OOC schedule sucks.
-If OSU doesn't get in, keep them at 6 and have UCF leap them.  "Despite what conversations are initiated on telecasts, it is important if you lose by >21 points in a game, and you can't barely beat inferior teams all year and expect your resume to impress." 
-IF ND was 5, drop them to like 7 or 8 and say it's because they didn't play a conference title game.
-In reference to bullet #1, move a team up a couple of slots who scheduled good/great teams in the non conference.  Even make a comment about how the game was scheduled in June of 2016, and that effort was noticed.  If 1-loss 'bama had gotten in over a 1-loss conference champion Michigan, college football teams would be more incentivized to schedule baby seals pre conference. 

TL;DR - the playoff committee has 2 jobs.  Get the best ~4 teams with reasonable criteria and, in the process, try to make college football better moving forward.

Reading that comment gave me chills. 

He’s the kind of dude that in the future, he will tell the Michigan players that they represent him too, so go out there kick everyone’s ass.

I also had a dream last night.  My football dreams always suck and vs OSU they revolve around not being able to actually see the game (game is played in a massive tent, there is a tree in front of me in the stadium, I am stuck in customs [but I don't travel ever {and I'm always thin (ahh, Inception)}]).
Per my subconscious, we win 39-24 AND I successfully hack the wifi password at the Pentatonix concert to watch it on my phone.  

/Even my usually irredeemable subconscious is like "Dude, Murderwolf."

Mello, as always, your hype video was fucking great.  I now want to go find someone with an OSU shirt on and punch his dick off.

I honestly don't think there is a chance we lose this game.  There is a theory that we live in a reality that is layered amongst 3000 other realities.  In EVERY single one of those universes that has college football, Michigan wins this Saturday.  

11/19/2018 - 6:48pm I think it’s a pretty big…

I think it’s a pretty big deal. Even if there isn’t a ton of specific play info, he has to understand Meyer’s thought process better than anyone on the staff. 

11/11/2018 - 3:23pm I honestly don't get how…

I honestly don't get how people are unable to grasp that we are given a snapshot and sometimes things change.  I work in medicine and can't tell you how many times stuff changes.  
People find out all the time that doctors have decided to go a different route.  No surgery to remove the tumor. No radiation to the brain.  Diagnosis, like, the thing we are all treating you for, has changed.

I don't read every post on the board, but I've also never seen him pound his chest either.  I agree the ND comments seemed off, but whatever.  Appreciate whatever info we can get.  

11/10/2018 - 10:18am Reading P/CP is the reserved…

Reading P/CP is the reserved for the first thing I do after I finish my morning coffee.  It's not that the act I'm involved is in any way a commentary on what I'm reading.  Quite the contrary.  Like any piece of art consumed, whether screen or written word, there is always something lost when you are interrupted.  Having a family means you will inevitably be interrupted if they see your face staring into the soul of your phone.
So, during this reserved time without intrusion, I have the opportunity to read such wit and brilliance.  I laugh heartily, and possibly even chortle or snort.  I have no cares if I do either, as I'm enjoying myself too much to worry.
But then I leave the bathroom after finishing all the tasks that I had set out for.  My family stares at me with a mixture of confusion and contempt.  What could have possibly been that funny to make those kinds of noises in there.
It then becomes perfectly clear to me.  For my family, I am the fourth stripe.  

Confusion grips me and I'm uncertain if I should find some Axe body spray or a stadium hot tub to jump into.  Aware, but not fully aware, of what I should do next, I grab my teddy bear and small magnets. 

11/10/2018 - 7:28am I have noticed that as well…

I have noticed that as well.  I love the game within the game, and am always impressed when people keep a public tally as BeatOSU has done.  
I bet Purdue straight up against OSU and it paid x 4.  I bragged to my friends that I called it.  Then I lost said profits because I jumped on Purdue +2 immediately that following Sunday thinking I was getting in before the line changed.  Shockingly, I didn't tell as many friends about that bet. 

I've been watching that MSU/OSU line all week, of course it's been essentially static.  Still don't know what to make of it.  As much as I pride myself on gambling detachment, I can tell I've got too much emotion on that one to place a bet.  Regardless of how much I waiver, I'm positive I'll see the ending and be like "I totally knew that would happen."

11/07/2018 - 2:14pm I appreciate the OP posting…

I appreciate the OP posting this article. I agree that “no bombshell” is a correct phrase here as it is MSU - they clearly are an irredeemable trash university. I’m not making a regional dig here, but think of how big a deal this would be if it was at a university that actually had shame or gave a shit what people thought about them. 

11/03/2018 - 9:47am So good.  So.  Fucking. …

So good.  So.  Fucking.  Good.

Thanks, as always.

6 teams

Top 2 seeds get BYES

3 hosts 6, 4 hosts 5

That preserves the integrity of value to the regular season, with every couplet having extreme value over the one below it. No one with 1 loss from a power conference is going to be 7 or worse. If you are at 7, you had TWO losses and can’t complain. Also, home playoff games probably eradicates certain diseases because on-campus excitement would be absolutely incredible.

Fuck it. Divide by zero after Saturday.

You are far too kind to say we’d only be hungry. Many people, myself included, would probably be dead.

Love this idea as a recurring Sunday thread.  M -7.5, IMO

Not sure about before the game, but they were definitely the victims for 4 quarters that afternoon.

This guy (thumbs pointed at WitchitanWolverine)

I used to have season tickets, but elected to give them up about 5 years ago. It had nothing to do with record. When you have a small child, Saturdays are the days for gymnastics meets, soccer games, Girl Scout Fast Traxk, et al.  My ladies are going to be gone next weekend, though. Thinking I may have to grab the guys and go scalp some tix.

Even though the villain was obvious in those cartoons, I would miss who it was until the reveal. Now here I am, decades later, and I still can’t figure it out in time. I mean, OF COURSE it was Hornibrook. 

Strong work, OP

10/15/2018 - 8:59pm If this season keeps moving…

If this season keeps moving in the right direction, that will be the official statement moment of “We’re back, everyone who’s been on our case can fuck right off.”

I get super righteous about the way guys conduct themselves on the field (Felton Davis waving to the PSU crowd after his TD kind of stuff infuriates me).  Had 0% issue with that penalty. It was joy, not taunting. And, all the haters can fuck right off. 

10/15/2018 - 10:55am Yeah, but if we only did it…

Yeah, but if we only did it ONCE against Alabama, would that really prove anything?

I would feel very confident about beating that hybrid team. Especially without them having time to practice much together. 

10/04/2018 - 9:08am Agree. Also love how much he…

Agree. Also love how much he’s got everyone’s back. “Criticize the old dude, but not the players.”  That gave me chills. I’m 40, so I’m past the point of idolizing current players. But Brown is a dude and a role model. So proud to have him representing Michigan.

Fuck Penn State, but that white out is awesome.

That's absolutely insane.  I was unaware of that story.

That would be awesome. Great, complete effort today. We looked fantastic and, IMO, we are on a really nice improvement trajectory.  Despite week 1, I think this is going to be a special season. Go Blue!

09/20/2018 - 8:16am I am a romantic and I…

I am a romantic and I understand that my view is utterly naive. I feel that the world is a dark and sometimes miserable place. Universities should be our collective ray of light that punctures the darkness. They are our most important arsenal for liberty. As such, universities should be held to the highest possible ethical standards. No gray areas, no compromise, no excuses.

That comment is more exciting to me than Hill's SPARQ rating.

I would enjoy seeing your avatar and feeling a connection to it like I did 10-15 years ago.  


04/26/2018 - 6:43am Agree completely.

A true leader would have done all of this behind closed doors.  No pressure.  Each guy gets a chance to speak for themselves, maybe even anonymously.  After the decision is made, he goes to the media and says "As an entire team we decided ____."

I also think the threshold has to be very low on how many guys need to disagree for him to remain off the team.  I don't know what that number is, but I'm sure whatever Dantonio's number is, it's much bigger than mine. 

04/22/2018 - 8:47am Dude, Alabama is actually

a really nice state . . .

. . .

For me to POOP on!

04/15/2018 - 7:15am You nailed it.

Reminds me of the "Leftorium" episode of the Simpsons where Homer is calling everyone to ask them to help out Flanders.
"Hey, remember when I paid you back the money I owed you?  Yeah, well I now I need you to do a favor for me."

04/12/2018 - 12:21pm Couldn’t agree more.

I’m a Michigan grad, wife is an MSU grad (legacy family). We’ve always joked about the unseen “Cold War” for our 9 year old daughter’s interest. As far as I’m concerned, MSU is now, literally, the last major university I would want her to attend. This is no longer a rivalry “look who’s better” sort of thing.
I’m so fucking sick of the “yeah, but doesn’t this sort of stuff happen everywhere” garbage that friends and family spout. No. No, the largest serial sexual assault case in American history, followed by extensive institutional coverup and pervasive sexual assault culture doesn’t happen everywhere.

04/07/2018 - 11:32am Like many bad things,

I still feel that story deserves more scrutiny.
Especially when you add that in to his “boys will be boys” rape defense. I used quotes because that’s almost verbatim what his actual statement was when coaching at CMU.

04/02/2018 - 5:10pm Unfortunately,

the way he talks, I’m quite certain it always has been the least of his problems.

04/02/2018 - 10:56am Michigan beating Villanova

77-71 was my official bracket tiebreaker score. No need to change it now.

03/31/2018 - 8:20pm Hugging everyone I see!

What a comeback!!!!!

03/25/2018 - 6:46pm As the OP said,

advantageous to have the early slot if you win.  That's fantastic. 

03/25/2018 - 6:43pm Frozen Four in his first year

back on campus.  Great to have Mel back!  Great to be a Michigan Wolverine!

03/25/2018 - 6:42pm Last time this happened to a school,

(MSU), they set their campus on fire.  So, since we won't do that, we already have fared better without even playing the games.  

03/25/2018 - 12:27pm I love how definitive he is in his praise.

Sometimes you get the feeling that coaches in that situation are just giving lip service. “Expertly” and “familiar territory” are statements made by someone who is not insecure about his fan base favoring another coach/sport.

03/22/2018 - 9:47pm This is probably Beilein's best

team and they're playing like it in March.  

03/18/2018 - 12:21am I find this outcome

rather pleasing.
