12/07/2013 - 7:17pm I just don't feel the need

I just don't feel the need for a self-congratulatory parade in the first place. But I see where you're coming from. Again, there is just an obvious divide in Michigan's fan base.

12/07/2013 - 4:45pm I was a freshman at UM in

I was a freshman at UM in 2008, I went to every home game through my four years, both football and basketball. I don't need these hollow platitudes to remind me of why I care deeply about Michigan and its tremendously flawed football team.

Thanks for the thoughtful reply

The freep article? But I'm asking if there are such apparent fan base splits at other schools, not why they exist at Michigan.

12/07/2013 - 11:54am What does it mean if I just

What does it mean if I just can't get enthused by these rah-rah platitudes? Congrats on our supposed moral victory of running our team "the right way" nowadays (whatever that insinuates), and please join me at the bar as we watch our rivals compete for a championship tonight.

Serious question: this striking divide in our fan base that has been evident since 2009- are there similar divides at other schools? Or does it stem from the whole tradition vs. actual on-field success situation that is unique to Michigan.

02/01/2013 - 7:41pm Haha yeah, I meant

Haha yeah, I meant non-balcony as designated by the stubhub picture of the arena. I have my Ron Coleman jersey so I'm sure everyone in Bloomington will respect that.

A friend and I got lower bowl tickets on craigslist for $300/each a couple weeks ago. Anyone know which bloomington (college) bars will be the most fun after the game? 

12/16/2012 - 2:13pm "Presumably you heard more

"Presumably you heard more than the names, but even if you didn't, you should say that, instead of acting like you have info but only want to tell the internet some of it."

 

...I explicitly stated that I only knew the names and that it was disciplinary. 

12/16/2012 - 12:55pm Absolutely, I'll do that.

Absolutely, I'll do that.

12/16/2012 - 12:23pm Yeah I had actually emailed

Yeah I had actually emailed Brian earlier in the day. Then, Balas decided to tease the entire fanbase last night with his tweet, and that seemed like a fair time to post what I knew. 

12/16/2012 - 12:08pm I saw the thread from last

I saw the thread from last night was locked- should I not post information like that when I hear it? I didn't speculate as to why they were being disciplined, but it was still before the athletic department put out a press release. 

12/16/2012 - 12:21am I just know the names, and

I just know the names, and that they are gone for non-injury reasons. 

12/16/2012 - 12:17am I've been visiting this site

I've been visiting this site daily since 2006 and rarely comment. I have no reason to lie about this, but you all wanted to know who the player was and I was privy to that information. I definitely don't want to be villified for passing it onto you guys. 

12/16/2012 - 12:14am I wasn't going to say it, but

I wasn't going to say it, but yeah. 

12/16/2012 - 12:09am Floyd is gone, y'all.

Floyd is gone, y'all. And a couple more, but not as significant as him. Not trolling.

01/25/2012 - 3:56pm I've lived on Mary since the

I've lived on Mary since the Pub opened, and even worked a couple shifts when they were undermanned.

Bar Bullets:

  • There were ~4 management changes in 2011.
  • Last January/February, the Pub carved itself a Thursday night niche with $1 Labatt bottles, but the week the managers started charging $3 cover, the place became desolate.
  • The bar would run out of beer some nights, and bartenders would then run to Campus Corner and pay for bottles out of their own pocket.
  • This past fall, bartenders/bouncers/busboys never got their hourly wages, and this led to a lawsuit with ownership.
  • A couple weeks before it closed down, pitchers of Bud Light were $10.

The bar was just not using its space well (the downstairs was always empty and those huge tables were inefficient). Packard Pub was doing okay for a couple months, but in my opinion, trying to cash in on those Thursdays by charging cover ultimately led to its downfall.

I have an extra Row 1 student ticket, anyone that wants it can meet up with me in NOLA. Face value, if you want it: [email protected]

Yeah at least three of AP, FWAA, AFCA, Sporting News and WCFF have to select him for the NCAA 'consensus' honors. Since he has three, that means he'll be Michigan's 78th All-American, right?

Too much of the word 'chet' in this thread.

03/08/2011 - 10:47am I've heard yes

From the Maize Rage President in an email:

"It should also be noted that we are going to have a Selection Sunday showing at Crisler Arena next Sunday, so we will discuss our plans for that, as well."

See you all at Crisler.

I wish it were longer. I don't know... at just under 40 minutes, it just doesn't seem as substantial as I was hoping it would be. 

 

That being said, I love "Codex" and "Lotus Flower."

 

Edit: If there were a second part, when would it theoretially be released? I don't want to get my hopes up because I don't want to feel bitter at TKOL if this is its whole.

I suppose I just expected more from Brandon. I can support our head coach while still despising the firing of Rodriguez and the pathetic debacle of a coaching search that our AD has performed.

See, because I thought she was a bastion of lyricism and anti-corporate scruples.
