06/13/2018 - 4:43pm Strange, I have been…

Strange, I have been involved in BETA testing for a great many products over the years and most of them still had bugs when they were released.  I think you are overestimating what any kind of testing can produce.

How many people could possibly have been involved in said BETA testing?  A couple dozen?  It is far more likely that the thousands of people that visit this site on a daily basis will find issues that those few people missed.

Alliance 1: Michigan, Clemson, Texas, Georgia Tech, Florida

 

Alliance 2: Everyone else.

 

Every remaining team is in an alliance.

To be fair, his choice can also be his problem.

05/23/2018 - 4:24pm What are the chances

What are the chances we can neg this far enough to prevent future awful posts like we did in the Hunter Johnson post?

05/21/2018 - 2:53pm I'm Sorry

My deepest apologies.  

I dropped the ball like Braylon with the Jets.

I think he is a middle reliever.  So...the Tigers!

05/18/2018 - 4:39pm As I said

As I said in the other thread, pretentious...

05/18/2018 - 4:32pm Did you really expect them to get 2 runs anyway?

05/18/2018 - 12:59pm Nebraska

The other night Nebraska referred to themselves as the "real" 1997 national champions.  That should be all the motivation you all need to sign up and burn down their corn fields!

This is a thread about vacationing.  So yes, visiting the 10 resort towns scratches the surface because that is where he is going to go.  Context man, context.

Let's not work so hard to get offended.

05/17/2018 - 5:41pm Of the list you provided

Of the list you provided, I have been to DR and Jamaica.  After going to both, I never realized how unsafe I felt in Jamaica compared to Punta Cana.  Punta Cana is a 100% resort town with very little actual city to it, so you don't have much of crime, slums, etc.  I would recommend it #1 of all the places i have been to, (Bahamas, Jamaica, Pretty much all of Mexico) though I haven't been to Belize, which is also on my list.  

05/16/2018 - 10:50pm Lol

If that was his point he is even more wrong.

Ultimately that barely makes any sense. I read the blog for Michigan news. I come across his comments and his holier than thou attitude is blatantly obvious. You make it sound like I go looking for his thoughts, when in fact they are everywhere.

05/16/2018 - 6:22pm If You

If you consider my post a lot of effort, I worry about your ability to survive in this world.

05/16/2018 - 6:12pm I can't behind this one

I struggle to believe anyone other than Urban Meyer and I'm not even sure of that could make it in the NFL.  He won an NFC title for crying out loud.

05/16/2018 - 6:07pm You asked for it...

WD is the kind of Michigan fan that makes people hate Michigan fans.

As long as I double posted, what about VT.  If we dont need to use all our power on Clemson should we work to eleminate VT as well?

05/11/2018 - 11:35am Clemson

What are the stats for Clemson.  How much power do we need to throw at BC and UConn?

05/10/2018 - 2:06pm Heads Up

I realized today that none of my turns counted because they marked me as a bot.  Verify that your turns are counting, if not you need to message the moderators.

05/10/2018 - 2:01pm ...

Did Kevin Love or Kyrie ever even make the playoffs before they played with LBJ?  

 

05/10/2018 - 1:59pm Ok I will bite

Lebron made his first finals on possibly the WORST finals team in the history of the NBA.  

Everyone talks about LeBron's hand picked all star teams.  What exactly has anyone that played with LBJ done without him? 

Carlos Boozer = Nothing

Zidrunas Ilguaskus. (dont care how he spells it.)  Nothing

Dwayne Wade.  Ok 1

Chris Bosh = Has he ever won a playoff series without LBJ?

Kyrie Irving = Same question?

Kevin Love = NEVER MADE THE PLAYOFFS without LBJ

Does anyone recall a guy getting the finals MVP for guarding LBJ and holding him to just shy of a triple double average?  That was considered highly successful!!!!

There are dozens of people in this thread claiming that MJ made his teammates better and LBJ just joins good teams.  HE IS THE TEAM.

Everyone talks about how physical the game was back then.  Are you kidding me?  Can you imagine a fight between Boogie Cousins and Bill Lambeer?  

I am old enough to remember MJ in all his greatness.  I argued on his side for years.  The time has come to pass the torch, the discussion is over.

Go watch videos of 80s basketball, it is hilarious when you look at the skills and athletecism.  Basketball today is SO FAR beyond that.

05/09/2018 - 4:04pm Clemson

Clemson is going to wake up in the morning and wonder what the hell happened.

05/07/2018 - 1:28pm Ok I'm In

Took my shot at the last OSU stronghold in Ohio.

04/25/2018 - 3:36pm At this point

At this point, it's an entire bag of Doritos!

04/18/2018 - 12:02pm I suppose

I suppose this is the biggest difference for me vs most of the people here who aren't spirit fans.  I think I have flown 4 connecting flights in my entire life.  I always flight non stop and that makes the chances of me having issues with Spriit infinitely smaller.  

 

Also I mostly fly out of MSP, so possibly much different than SE MI

04/18/2018 - 11:57am ?

Checked bags on Spirit are Cheaper than Delta if you pay for them at the time of booking.

Spirit is like $21 each way.  Most airlines are $30.

04/18/2018 - 12:28am Ummm

Spirit has one of the newest fleets amongst all carriers.

If you think Spirit is bad you are either an inexperienced traveler or B you want lots of extras with your flight. Why would you pay $60 for a Coke and Pretzels?

If you fly often enough and know how all the carriers work and what you need for each trip, any carrier will suffice.

And after one team wins the first two...the third game will have an attendance of 12.

My first even double post.  The streak is over.

Wall of text scores a critical hit of 546.

You are dead.

Annoying Michigan fan feels slighted, news at 9.

04/01/2018 - 1:20am Tickets

Flying out in 7 hours. Looking for a pair of tickets. Would rather pay a Michigan fan than a bunch of fees on stubhub.

Is there any evidence to back up that fact that there is a disproportionate amount of violence and threats of violence issued by men against women?  Or is it the general guy tells another guy ill kick your ass just generally goes unreported because no one actually cares.

I have no time for violence against women.  I also have no time for violence against men.  Why stop short and suggest people shouldn't hit women when you can be JUST as effective suggesting people shouldn't hit ANYONE.

03/16/2018 - 11:46am ...

Instead of suggesting we not "threaten or make light of violence against women" why not just end it at the word violence.  Would this be acceptable if fans were doing this to a male member of the band?

02/22/2018 - 2:24pm ...

Are you going to prented like 1998 didn't happen?  They haven't owned it since its inception.  They didn't even win the first gold.  

Lie down before you hurt yourself.

02/21/2018 - 3:11pm This is...

This is 15 seconds of my life I will never get back.  Your bill is in the mail.

02/21/2018 - 12:57pm Love it!

Very few responses on here are funny, but for some reason this almost made me spit pepsi everywhere.

 

02/21/2018 - 12:16pm Fair enough

I am not suggesting its 100% accurate, but anyone is lying to themselves if they can't see a problem with just taking star averages.  Again see my post above comparing a 4 star average with top 100 kids vs kids ranked in the 2000s.

 

Also, I dont think you can really cross compare years to validate your side of the discussion unless you can see a breakdown of each players value in the score.  I don't know that they were scored the same from year to year.

02/20/2018 - 2:55pm Simple

Because I am using a value assigned to each of them individually.  You are only using 3 different values and assuming all players at each value are equal.  They are not.

See my post above.

02/20/2018 - 2:51pm ...

This is way too simplistic.

Going off 247 Recruiting. 

29 Kids were 5 stars

349 Kids were 4 Stars

1959 Kids were 3 stars.

First off, the 379th ranked player, (The top 3 Star) is a big step above the 2337th ranked player, the last 3 star.  

Stars matter, overall rankings matter more.

If you just go off star average, you could take a class of 24 kids, 12 5 stars and 12 ranked in the 2000s and they would be equal to 24 4 stars that were all ranked in the top 100. 

I would take 24 kids from the top 100 all day vs the other option.

 

02/20/2018 - 2:15pm Flaw

But that thinking is flawed.  Because all 3 stars are not equal, nor are all 4 stars.  There are lots of these kids.  The difference between the top 3 star and the bottom 4 star is not a huge gap.  

247 assigns points per kid you sign based on his overall ranking.  My table divides it out that way.

So explain how it is far from accurate.

02/20/2018 - 1:56pm Class Size Matters

Maybe i don't understand the formula right, but if you divide the Total Score in the Composite standings by the total number of kids signed, Michigan comes in 13th, right behind 12th place Ohio State.  Michigan is 12.13 while OSU is 12.19

I can reply to people at the top as well...LOOK AT ME!!!  LOOK AT ME!!!

01/31/2018 - 1:06pm Well

I grew up in a small town in SW Wisconsin.  Parents were not sports fans, so it wasn't a Packer or Badger house.  Born in 84 I grew up in the time of the Fab Five and Desmond.  We didn't have cable and the badgers were so bad they were never on TV.  So Saturdays were Michigan football on ABC or ND on NBC.  Clearly, I made the right choice.
