Dickerson is top notch and I love Jim Price.  One of the tragedies of the Tigers being terrible is that I don't get to spend as much time listening to those two.  I've never understood people's frustrations with running jokes and catch phrases.  It's 162 game season.

I wouldn't be surprised if they sometimes don't get along 100%, there have been times when I've heard them get frustrated with each other but I very much doubt anything like will happen.

A very worthy cause!  Fire up the money cannon!!

I'm bearish on the Wolverines this year but gol damn I'm excited!!!!

Don Canham said not to turn a one day story into a two day story.  I wonder what he would think about turning a a one day positive story, MSU making an honest effort to come to terms about what happened, into a two day negative story of censorship and whitewashing.

The world is getting better.  100 years ago this wouldn’t even have been a story.  How Zach Smith treated his wife would have been considered nobody’s business but his.  Hell, even a decade ago this might not have been a big story.  Society is changing the way it deals with violence against women.  Ohio State’s handling of this shows how far we have to go but the near universal condemnation they are receiving is a good thing.

1-I love Jim Harbaugh and think he is an elite coach and may be the best coach but that is a subjective term.  I think the Camaro is better than the Mustang but that doesn't mean that it it, just that I think so

2-Nick Saban and Urban Meyer (putting aside biases and ethical considerations) are both more accomplished college coaches and it's not really close

3-Why am I wasting my time thinking about Skip Bayless?

Tough news, but Grant overflows with class, intelligence and grace.  Good for him, and we are lucky to have such a wonderful ambassador for our university.  

08/20/2018 - 12:39pm Well Ledecky and Biles are…

Well Ledecky and Biles are exceptional, once in a lifetime athletes.  You rarely have one athlete who is so much better than everyone else in his or her sport (hello Mike Trout).

You'll also have more of their peers competing against them at the same level.  So if Simone Biles competed for UCLA, then presumably Jordyn Wieber and Ali Raisman et al would be as well.  

One unintended consequence of this would be crowding out excellent but not quite world class gymnasts (or swimmers or ice dancers or whatever) whose scholarship Simone Biles or Nastia Luikin or Shawn Johnson would take.

Definitely less often.  I go to Brian's twitter feed to see what new posts are up and click on the links to be taken directly to the post.  So I read the same amount of posts but spend less time on the site and don't spend much time on the board.

The old format was far more visually appealing and easier to navigate.  I feel guilty saying that because I know they worked very hard on this.  

In general web design is in a bad place right now.  Most site upgrades that I've witnessed lately make the sites harder to use.

I will say it is far better on my phone but I generally use MGOBLOG on my computer.

Why is Colombus trying to move?  I had thought that city was a bit of a soccer hot spot

That’s crazy!!!

02/02/2018 - 1:53pm I understand what you are

I understand what you are saying.  I was trying to speak generally because I didn't want to put words in your mouth.

Regarding your question of whether or not I would risk my safety or my life to protect Nassar or someone simliar the answer is almost certainly not. But that's one of the many reasons I would never be a CO.  

 

I guess my overall point is that I can't judge the desire to see justice meted out but I think a civilized society of laws ought to recognize those baser instincts and move on from them.

02/02/2018 - 10:40am It's hard to take in

It's hard to take in cognitive dissoance required to say "Sexual assualt is bad" and "I hope that someone gets sexually assualted".  

I'm not saying that's what you are saying but its a common attittude.  Having never been the victim of a violent crime I could never tell a survivor what they should feel.  Hell I would never tell anyone that they shouldn't feel rage or a desire for reciprocal justice when confronted with evil like this.  But I think it speaks poorly of our society that the reaction to crimes like these is often barely disguised vigilantism.

What do you mean by handled?

So pumped!!  Maybe he can bring back the Donald Duck impression and joins the Maize Rage again.  And his "I'm Hoongry" answer in the press conference after he set the record was tremendous.

 

There are few Wolverines I've enjoyed rooting for more than Treezy.

I always wondered why the ratings agencies never had to pay the piper after the financial collapse.  

01/29/2018 - 12:20pm Isn't William and Mary

Isn't William and Mary considered to be a top school?  Honest question, I didn't even know it was a public school till just now.

01/29/2018 - 12:14pm I was suprised at being so

I was suprised at being so low but I generally don't see the service acadamies ranked with the other public schools.  Makes sense I guess.

I loved that until the last line.

 

Hold me TomVH!!!!

01/09/2018 - 3:47pm I lean—too hard, it feels—on

"I lean—too hard, it feels—on my housemates and girlfriend and family...The guilt of not doing my share around the house nags at me. My housemates have lives and full-time jobs and problems of their own. ...I also feel guilty that people worry about me, though apparently not quite enough to not write this piece."

 

I know how this feels Ace.  I was recently diagnosed with a condition that requires my family and friends to bend over backwards to accodmodate me.  They seem happy to do it but I don't like it.  I guess you just have to remember that they are doing it because they love you.

 

Best wishes!

01/08/2018 - 9:34am I think a lot of schools have

I think a lot of schools have volunteers to walk people home, don't they?  Might be worth looking into.

01/03/2018 - 2:23pm Is Ty Law at all engaged with

Is Ty Law at all engaged with the program these days?  I oftentimes forget he is an alum.

12/01/2017 - 2:53pm Good for him. 

Good for him. 

11/30/2017 - 3:27pm It is terrifying to have the

It is terrifying to have the two tackles take the last two spots.  If the pass blocking doesn't improve I don't see us improving record wise next year.

11/27/2017 - 11:27am Yeah I never got this

Yeah I never got this argument.  Somewho Pep hoodwinked Jim Harbaugh into hiring him?

It just looks stupid.  Same as O$U or when MSU fans call us scUM or skunkbear or whatever.  I've never found it clever or funny.

11/24/2017 - 12:20pm Are pellet smokers that much

Are pellet smokers that much easier than the old ones?  I've been thinking about getting into smoking and something just feels less organic about using pellets.

Baumgardner does not give a fuck.  

 

That's not how you spell Buckeyes.  

11/20/2017 - 7:56pm That may or may not end up

That may or may not end up being true but I don’t think it’s fair to Bacari to speculate like that

11/10/2017 - 12:11pm Man those sunfish sailboats

Man those sunfish sailboats are so much fun, but I don't think I'd take one out on Lake Superior haha

11/08/2017 - 2:19pm I think Harbaugh has a pretty

I think Harbaugh has a pretty good idea of whether or not he will be a fit.  I also prefer to avoid calling kids flakes without knowing the whole story.  Not saying that you don't.

11/08/2017 - 11:07am Yeah I don't get the pearl

Yeah I don't get the pearl clutching in this thread.  If Harbaugh thinks he's a fit and he's academically qualified then I don't see any reason why we can't give him a shot.

How dare they participate in the economy

That was super interesteting!  Thanks for sharing.

11/02/2017 - 4:26pm I think you are

I think you are underestimating the soccer market in Michigan.  Are they going to fill up the stadium to the rafters?  Probably not, but there is a sizeable contingent of soccer fans in this state.

Get the misogyny out of your posts

10/05/2017 - 12:08pm Yes they do.  Follow Andy

Yes they do.  Follow Andy Reid or Scott Bell or any of a number of Daily alums and they will tell you all about it.

09/27/2017 - 5:15pm Great analogy!

Great analogy!

09/27/2017 - 12:21pm I had to go with RIP Elijah.

I had to go with RIP Elijah.  The way Chase just comes flying into the frame to finish him off is incredibly fun to watch.

09/25/2017 - 1:19pm I agree that this is a dumb

I agree that this is a dumb take but who ended up in the hospital over the heat?  Or are you talking about Wilton?  Do they not have enough medical equipment there?

09/21/2017 - 4:02pm I was very surprsied Bush

I was very surprsied Bush wasn't ejected.  I don't think it was malicious but it was reckless, which I thought was one of the points of the targeting rule, to change the way players launch themselves.

09/15/2017 - 1:46pm The analogy I use is

The analogy I use is restaurants.  The NFL is like burger franchises.  Yeah you might like McDonalds more than Burger King but they are more or less the same.

 

College is like local mom and pop restaurants.  In the south you'll have great bbq restaurants, in Michigan you'll have Coneys, etc.  

 

College just feels more organic, which is why we react so strongly everytime the MBAs try to ruin it.

Thank God for the Glaswegians!!

I guess they knew they couldn't afford 15 nights of steep discounts this fall.

Butch spending a time out at the end of the half that he should have used in offense was hilarious
