12/02/2013 - 10:10am Concern Trolling

Nice work flash_override. This is a perfect example.

I missed the "concern" part of the trolling question. Trolling is usually done without agenda, someone just trying to anger people. A concern troll usually has more of an agenda related to a cause, team, political issue, etc... In this case it would be an opposing fan posing as a Michigan fan.

Trolling is specifically making inflamatory comments to anger a large number of people. The comments are usually made on message boards or in comments on articles. The poster doesn't need to believe what they are writing is true, but instead are writing to anger a specific group of people. 

Example: Posting in the comments of a Beatle's song, "I can't believe the Beatle's covered Justin Biebers song XXXXX. That's so tacky." People do this knowing the Beatle's fans will go crazy about such a comment.

I do think a lot of the "trolling" on this board is unintentional. 

07/22/2013 - 4:45pm That is very true and I agree with that sentiment.

That is very true and I agree with that sentiment that the punishments weren't equivalent. I don't agree with not giving equal punishment. The only valid reason would be if there were more facts present for the Gardner case, like if he willingly admitted that he was pleading guilty. In that case a punishment could come before judgement. 

07/22/2013 - 4:19pm Innocent until proven guilty

I have no problem with indefinite suspensions until the outcome of the accused players trials. I think people automotically assume guilt too often these days. Why cut a player from the team when he may not have done anything legally wrong. Morally is another issue, maybe warranting a suspension but not a permanent seperation from the university. 

10/04/2012 - 5:37pm Purdue's isn't about how early the bars open

Breakfast club at Purdue is basically halloween for every home game so it is a completely different animal. I agree that the bars at Purdue are lame. Having spent 3 years there in grad school I can actually say I'd rather spend time in Mt. Pleasant at the bars. But breakfast club is pretty epic. The students put a lot of creativity and time into the costumes and the atmosphere is great despite it being the crack of dawn. I have tailgated for many levels of college football (MAC, Big Ten at several schools, and even DII) but I've never seen anything like breakfast club at Purdue. It's definitely worth the early wake up to see it at least once.

Even if you don't attend breakfast club in costume it is defintely worth seeing. Drive down state street at 7-8 am and you'll see a pretty hilarious S*%& show of drunken students in crazy costumes.


10/04/2012 - 5:24pm Harry's Chocolate Shop's Motto

Those unfamiliar with Purdue's bars, Harry's is one of the more popular ones. Their motto, "Go Ugly Early". They have t-shirts with the motto. It's on the stools (spent most of one evening brainstorming with friends on how to remove a stool from the bar without being noticed).

As a Purdue Alum and former grad student who has also witnessed all Michigan has to offer, I can honestly agree with the assessment of the girls on this thread! Go Ugly Early!


01/18/2012 - 12:18pm Where do you think he gets it from?

Just take one look at Izzo and it's easy to see where Green gets his attitude from. Izzo is a great coach but complains (or works the refs) the whole game. He even went after the officials after the game was over. Players observe that and unless corrected by their coach will emulate those actions. For as long as I can remember Izzo coaching I can remember MSU having players consistently berating officials. I'm glad our players have Beilein and his class act to emulate.

the QB coach and Offensive play caller. Diaco calls the defense at ND. Kelly had the same offensive responsibilities at CMU and Cincy.

12/29/2011 - 12:55pm Minecraft Kelly/Shorts Stadium

I'm not surprised someone would make a replica of the stadium. It's the only way to get any enjoyment out of the place right now with how horrible they were/are.
