“Sick” in the old man sense, yes, in the catagory of vomit and severed limbs.

What about fuck no?

I agree, but if a dumbass like me can see that it's an issue, it's hard for me to believe that Harbaugh and company aren't all over it.  I have a feeling that before we're done, we'll be good.  And this isn't "a trust the coaches" comment as much as "there's a reason Jim Harbaugh is Michigan's football coach and I'm drinking coffee from a Michigan mug while posting on a message board."

"Someone" rhyme with gluey?

Nnnnnnnope.  Points and edits were left in the truck when the site moved to 3.0.

And then tossed a safety off his back at the five like it was his 7 year old brother.

I couldn’t get past the leading Germany to prosperity part of the comment. The prosperity came from institutional theft on an astonishing scale. The regime stole from its own and then its neighbors. We all agree the guy was evil but please don’t fall in the trap of saying he had any leadership skills beyond the ability to tap into a sense of entitlement and convince people they were somehow deserving of their neighbor’s property.

There’s no way to neg the op and for good measure up and down votes don’t affect points which, fuck. We just electronically shake our fists on the new site. 

07/03/2018 - 1:58pm He was sent to a small…

He was sent to a small island in the Pacific some time last week. A small part of me wonders what he thinks of this tsunami of talent but a huge part of me is glad the insufferable pedant is chasing down crabs with a home made spear.

Yes!  We must nip this kind of thing in the butt!

06/13/2018 - 12:53pm Lovie is going spread option…

Lovie is going spread option with his offense and has recruited a 5 star (!) athlete to be his QB. George knew he was done there. This is all about his degree and depth for MI, nothing more. 

06/07/2018 - 9:00am Ooops.  The fact that I just…

Ooops.  The fact that I just posted essentially the same idea shows how easy it is to miss new posts if you're lazy like me.

06/07/2018 - 8:58am One thing I'd like to see…

One thing I'd like to see come back is the NEW notation on posts.  When we got a really good topic going, I'd revisit multiple times to see how the West Coast vote was coming in and so on.  I realize the timestamp makes it possible to track new posts, but it's better for us lazy guys to have NEW in big red letters.

06/07/2018 - 8:54am I see the quadruple post…

I see the quadruple post function survived the export.  (didn't downvote; just snarked)

06/06/2018 - 10:32am EXCELLENT mgosnark.  I…

EXCELLENT mgosnark.  I marked my calendar to be sure to give you some points once that is functional.

06/02/2018 - 9:41pm Fuck

Well, JAY was a helluva tight end.

06/02/2018 - 12:47pm Do NOT apologize for Tuman.

Do NOT apologize for Tuman.  I have a lot of happy smiles in my sleep when I think of him coming open on play action.

Also, first Toomer highlight was a mopup touchdown thrown by one Dave Riemersma (sp?).  Just goes to show that predicting the future of college football players is awfully difficult.

06/01/2018 - 1:06pm Please note that this was,

Please note that this was, "the new, SMALL Chrysler."  I once talked to a collector with a 64 Olds 98 that was 222" long.  That's 18.5 feet.  Just sayin'.

05/27/2018 - 11:40pm 1994 Colorado game. That was

1994 Colorado game. That was an excellent Michigan team that might’ve won everything but was completely undone mentally by one fucking play.

05/26/2018 - 4:13pm No shit

1) I'm straight so I don't enjoy the naughty bits

2) Nobody--not even a drunk Mrs. Brimley-- wants to see my old ass in those underpants

So swing and a miss, Big Data

05/22/2018 - 8:26pm First I’ve heard about any of

First I’ve heard about any of this. What was going on?

05/21/2018 - 6:07pm Yep

I just use bags because I mulch just one flower bed and around the trees.  I had some leftover one year, put it in the garage, and pulled it out a couple months later to freshen things up a bit.  I was horrified to see that the bottom layer was now ash.  Forturnately, I didn't burn the whole house down.  NEVER keep it piled more than a a couple of inches unless you enjoy burning yourself out.

05/18/2018 - 5:59pm Limped to the finish line in

Limped to the finish line in 2016 and signed the number 5 class in the nation in February 2017.

05/16/2018 - 12:57pm Tigers return on JV trade you

Tigers return on JV trade you note as "not very much".  Time will tell, but they got their number 1 propect out of it in Perez and a fairly solid prospect in Daz Cameron (Rogers looks like a career minor leaguer to me).  Both are very young and likely to grow both physically and in smarts.  You may end up being right about it, but I think that in 5 years we'll see it as an important part of the rebuild.

05/13/2018 - 6:13pm Waaaaaaay our on a limb here

DiNardo will come in August on the BTN camp tour and say that Michigan looks deep and talented and fast and oh my god look out for these guys! He speaks to his audience like a lot of people in his line of work.

05/09/2018 - 12:58pm St-Juste weight is

St-Juste weight is respectable.  I'm still hoping he turns into a viable option at cover god.

05/09/2018 - 12:56pm Ixnay on the uckeyesay.

Ixnay on the uckeyesay.

05/07/2018 - 6:04pm Only 100K and change to go,

Only 100K and change to go, kinda like my retirement savings.

04/28/2018 - 8:40pm We were pushing sports

We were pushing sports management reeeeeeally hard ("Professor Needs A Raise").  The implication was that he wasn't getting into Michigan's engine school.  That said, if I had to bet on it, he was drawn to the Alabama football program and leery of Hoke's (rightly as it turned out), engineering be damned.

04/28/2018 - 12:53pm Ammonia works for skunks too.

Ammonia works for skunks too. They have excellent smell (that’s how they find grubs) and hate the ammonia uber scent. The problem is you have to keep reapplying it because they’re persistent fuckers and the scent fades, especially in the rain of course.

04/23/2018 - 8:21pm Don’t forget Moore. He should

Don’t forget Moore. He should be really good too.

04/19/2018 - 6:05pm It's a reason to BE ON

It's a reason to BE ON Twitter.  Hilarious.  Here's one from a few days ago:

Yes. You’re a disappointment to your parents, but look at the bright side, you’re not the one who gave birth to an unloveable fuck up, they are. Eat arbys

04/17/2018 - 4:57pm Most likely he's trying to be

Most likely he's trying to be funny/humble.  He should be fine while he's here, and then when a MAC school or somesuch calls with an offer, hopefully Roundtree will be ready to try his hand at the position.

04/11/2018 - 9:51pm Brimley

Of course

04/04/2018 - 11:13am You're right but, given

You're right but, given recent history on the d-line and recruiting profiles of the guys "making moves", I'm comfortable saying it's not bullshit.

03/31/2018 - 11:57am I hear coyotes at night right

I hear coyotes at night right here in NW suburban Chicago.  They're adaptable suckers for sure.  However, I expect our rock formations are a tad less impressive than The Badlands.  Unless you're into limestone quarries.

03/28/2018 - 7:21pm I remember (vaguely) Lolich

I remember (vaguely) Lolich beating Gibson in 68. That was fun too.

03/22/2018 - 12:19pm Well...

...the thread IS "Who will surprise us".

03/17/2018 - 3:37pm Exactly

Jim might have lost an inch off his 6-3 playing height, but that still makes McNamara 6-2.  He'll be fine.

03/16/2018 - 9:52pm Yep. Gravity sucks. I look up

Yep. Gravity sucks. I look up at my son now. Punk.

03/08/2018 - 4:08pm Difference between Breaking

Difference between Breaking Bad and Walking Dead:  Vince Gilligan went into it with a story arc that, once it was done, was done.  Dead will keep dragging until the audience falls away or primary actors split, kind of like All in the Family or Happy Days did when I was much younger.  Then people will say, "Oh yeah, I still love early Dead episodes, but anything after (whatever actor name) left sucks."

03/06/2018 - 1:34pm Upvote, but I was always kind

Upvote, but I was always kind of a Yorktown fan.  Took a bomb at Coral Sea and stayed afloat somehow, steamed out to help win Midway while literally still under repair, got bombed all to shit AGAIN, but STILL stayed afloat until a sub got finally got her on the way back to Hawaii.  She kept getting up off the matt when we were hanging on by a damn thread.

Sidenote: there was a guy who for years ran a hot dog stand in Grand Blanc.  I learned much later he won a commendation for shooting down a kamikaze, saving dozens of lives.  He was just the hot dog guy to me, but that generation (including my dad), like Yorktown, kept getting up off the matt.  God bless them.

02/16/2018 - 11:18pm Correted

Amaizeing win

02/15/2018 - 12:33pm You bet it is.  And it's

You bet it is.  And it's supposed to be fun.  Once a fan gets into a DOOM mindset, then what the hell is the point?  My irrational exuberance is by definition STUPID but it's what makes following the team fun.  I mean, I used to watch and enjoy late 70s Red Wings games fercrissakes. All the gloom here for the last few months is really wearing on the fun.  I know, I know..."You can't ignore reality, old man."  Fuck reality.  The whole point of kicking back and watching young guys play a game is to have a little fun when reality has my scrotum in a vise.  I just hate losing the fun that the game brings.

Highly emotional, hard to follow, poorly worded, and stupid rant over.

02/15/2018 - 11:36am Two weeks in that name.

Two weeks in that name.  Lately, there's been more re-incarnation on this board than in a Buddhist monastary.

02/12/2018 - 10:29am Just guessing, but it fits

Just guessing, but it fits the leadership model of when things go poorly, I, as leader, failed you. Now let’s work together to improve things. Leader as servant if you’re into the management stuff. An alternate philosophy is to blame others and turn purple.

02/09/2018 - 3:03pm Idiot question: what did you

Idiot question: what did you see from backs in pass protection last year?  Fred seemed to do a nice job developing that.  Did you see improvment from our young backs in that area under Jay?

Also, what the hell happened to Brandon Graham?  Apparently, being a Super Bowl hero takes a toll on your appearance.

02/08/2018 - 2:58pm Since you asked...

Old Fashioned.  Instant is for lazy asses who can't get up early enough to make it right.

02/08/2018 - 12:34pm Thank you!

Class move on his part calling a group of 18 year-olds who are going to work harder than I ever have and play through pain I've never experienced a "disaster" is ridiculous.  If he wishes Petit Frere would've come and Reese would've stuck, fine.  But let's support those who are here.
