06/18/2018 - 10:17am We should be fretting about…

We should be fretting about the dumbfuck who created this schedule. I still have no idea why they replaced Arkansas with ND, at ND no less. It doesn't do anything to have the toughest schedule in the country. Only thing it does is to make it harder to get to the playoffs. We have bunch of idiots running AD.

06/06/2018 - 11:47am I just upgraded my entire AV…

I just upgraded my entire AV system (TV/AVR/HTPC). I have the journey documented here:

For me, the important upgrade is HDR more than 4K. The increase in contrast and color is really eye popping.

I did a ton of research and ended with a choice between 75" Sony XBR900E (Rting and AVS top buy) and 65" LG OLED (the best possible picture). It was really an agonizing call, but I ended up with the Sony and I am really happy with it. The brightness and contrast is really great and some of the demo video are simply breathtaking.

05/25/2018 - 12:24pm This is silly, nobody is

This is silly, nobody is saying the it is impossible to become rich if you were born poor or vice versa. But the odds of that happening is pretty low. Most people end up in the same class, income wise, as their parents. Why is that so hard to understand?

05/10/2018 - 10:54am Students have enough to worry

Students have enough to worry about. Not sure why anything like this would be necessary.

Coaches on the otherhand...

05/08/2018 - 2:08pm This is the correct answer

This is the correct answer for anyone who grew up in the 80's. Was there any boy's bedroom without a poster of this car?

05/04/2018 - 10:45am Almost every five-stars going

Almost every five-stars going to Kentucky are thinking one-and-done. We done need them, they are practically useless the first year in Beilein's system.

Our four-stars will be outperforming them by the second year, so I don't see why we would even bother going after them unless we know for sure they want to stay more than a year.

05/03/2018 - 3:46pm Every team has their own

Every team has their own doctors who review theses cases and give their opinion. No coach is going to take a guy if your own doctor says he should not play. It does not matter if there is a different opinion, you go with the the recommendations from your own doctors. Obviously, the Oakland doctors agreed with Harvard and UM doctors. Not sure why everyone is getting upset over this...

04/26/2018 - 10:40am When it comes to black people

When it comes to black people using the n-word, i would put it this way. A female player slapping a teammate in the butt after a nice play would be just fine. If a male player slapped a female player in the butt, it would be considered as sexual assault.

04/25/2018 - 11:55am I think Bielein would be

I think Bielein would be quite happy with freshmen ineligibility.

04/07/2018 - 1:33pm You have no clue how WAR is

You have no clue how WAR is calculated...

WAR = (Batting Runs + Base Running Runs +Fielding Runs + Positional Adjustment + League Adjustment +Replacement Runs) / (Runs Per Win)

You can be a player on a team that loses every game and have a positive WAR.

04/07/2018 - 1:18pm Either he is transferring due

Either he is transferring due to bad grades and will have to sit a year, or he will be graduating this year and is grad transferring. It cannot be both. If he is grad transferring, that automatically means there are no problems with his grades.

04/03/2018 - 12:29am It does not matter if he

It does not matter if he reached his collegiate ceiling. If he comes back, that means that he will forego the next year's earnings AND he will be in a worse spot draft wise the next year, costing him even more money and jeopardize his chances at NBA even further.

There were talks about Mo going in the first round last year, and even though he came back and improved his game, now they are saying he would be a mid 2nd round at best. I don't know why anyone would think that coming back for another year would reverse that trend.

The crowd is about 70% Michigan inside the Alamodome.

I guess trying to share from OneDrive on the phone is not exactly foolproof. But this is my public share and nothing in there was confidential. Fixed!

I asked if there were any other posters and nobody spoke up. All just browesers...

But everyone I met were great. Matt is a super nice guy and I would get mortgage from him if I lived in A2:)

1103 is actually the Best Western hotel I am staying at. The Growler is across the street behind the t-shirt merchant. Not visible from commerce street.

04/01/2018 - 4:10pm Since I started the original

Since I started the original thread, I better show up for this one. Staying at BW, so this is practically just outside my hotel room.

BTW this place was packed with Michigan fans last night.

There are a lot of Kansas fans here.

My voice is gone. But I had chills when it sounded like the entire stadium was chanting Let's GO BLUE!

03/31/2018 - 12:02pm Being frustrated is fine.

Being frustrated is fine. Calling for a the best basketball coach Michigan has ever had to be fired??? That is justhe irrational and juvenile.

03/31/2018 - 11:55am Anyone who yells "fire

Anyone who yells "fire everybody" whenever a program hits a rough patch is not a true fan and deserves all the shit they get. The same crowd is now itching to burn Harbaugh in effigy if we have another 4 loss season, even though there is a snow ball's chance in hell that we can find someone better.

Most people were right to doubt Beilein? Fuck that and take your bandwagonning self out of here because there is no room for you.

This has gone towards a very weird place...

So, any suggestion on a good meeting place from a local?

03/28/2018 - 10:27pm Just because you were too

Just because you were too dumb to notice how good of a coach Beilein does not mean that others shared your shortcomings. Don't project your stupidity on others.

03/28/2018 - 8:44pm Screw that. Never doubted

Screw that. Never doubted Beilein. Go check my posts. I just couldn't believe how dumb folks were around here who believed that we could get a coach better than Beilein. Guy is respected around the league for a reason.

03/25/2018 - 3:25pm Not sure, what you are

Not sure, what you are disagreeing with. It is not like any of Mo's shortcomings are going to dramatically improve next year. And the draft is so age biased that every year you stay just works against you.

03/25/2018 - 1:46pm It does not matter where MO

It does not matter where MO goes. His draft stock will never get better than what it is today. If he wants to play in NBA, he needs to try now.

Flying in to Dallas as well. SA tix were well into 4 digits.

Trying to decide if staying near Alamo dome is worth paying 2x extra...

On chrome, disable java script and all of your problems will go away. You can't browse this site jus fine without any scripts.

03/14/2018 - 3:20pm The problem is that most

The problem is that most CEO's make almost zero difference to the bottom line of the company, yet get compensated by tens, if not hundreds of millions. Even worse, they all think they earned those paydays. Until this system changes, inequalities are only going to get wworse.

You are correct. I will hang my head in shame...

If you check out RCMB, there is a poster saying that during a timeout JJJ told Fife (asst. coach), that he can "Suck my balls" about going back in. That may explain why JJJ played so few minutes...

02/27/2018 - 5:02pm I watch Michigan sports

I watch Michigan sports because I was a student there. I never watched it beforehand. I still follow it because of the school connection, because it features students.

I have never followed minor league sports, even in cities and towns i've lived in. I am not about to start now.

If we are paying students, you might as well turn it into a minor league sports league. And at that point, I am not sure what business it is for an academic instituton like Michigan to own a minor league franchise.

If there was a pro league with all of the best 18-19 year old playing and B1G was left with crappy student players, I will watch students over pros without question.

02/27/2018 - 1:38pm You are forgetting the

You are forgetting the student part. I don't care about the payments but I have no desire to watch a bunch of minor league development players. And I don't see how a kid who is getting paid a million dollars a year can really be a student.

02/23/2018 - 11:30am Just like Trump supporters,

Just like Trump supporters, Izzo could shoot a person in the middle of a street and RCMB'ers would be arguing about how that person deserved to be shot.

02/14/2018 - 5:53pm I am really disappointed with

I am really disappointed with Manuel. The next year's schedule is a joke. Why schedule ND on the road when the last ND game was on the road as well before they dumped us? B1G is just screwing with us on schedule (like consecutive road MSU games) and we are just taking it.

No wonder we are just punching bags, it starts from the very top.

02/13/2018 - 11:13pm You mean the same people who

You mean the same people who deleted gigs of private mp3 files automatically because they were "available" on iTunes online?

No thanks.

02/13/2018 - 4:18pm If game stoppage was the

If game stoppage was the problem the TV viewership should go down as much as the attendance. I don't think that is the case. Ticket prices are most likely reason.

02/13/2018 - 1:01pm This is just dumb. All

This is just dumb. All hardware will eventually fail. Hard drives rarely last more than a few years of hard use. It does not matter if you have Mac, Windows, or Linux.

Always back up files, preferably online, and in 2 different places.

02/13/2018 - 12:37pm This would not have helped

This would not have helped the OP as he left his files in windows.old...

02/13/2018 - 12:36pm Windows.old IS a temp folder

Windows.old IS a temp folder (basically same as Deleted folder) and you should NEVER leave your files there. If you hadn't reinstalled, you might have had a chance with file recovery programs, but I doubt you have much chance now.

Get a file recovery program like Recuva and see if the files are still there. Otherwise you are SOL.

02/09/2018 - 11:15am I don't know about winning 3

I don't know about winning 3 games, but the projection says there is a very good chance we lose at least 3 games. How many people on this board will lose their shit when that happens? Probably a lot...

02/08/2018 - 1:12am The joke is on us. With the

The joke is on us. With the playoffs, there is absolutely no reason to play a tough schedule. Even with a cupcake schedule, if you win them all, you are in (re: Wisc last year). I don't understand why we punish ourselves for no reason.

02/07/2018 - 2:53pm I'm in the same boat. I

I'm in the same boat. I believe the team will be significantly better, but you will not necessarily see that in W/L records.

This board will collectively lose its shit next year..

02/01/2018 - 12:11pm You are waving "the accuser

You are waving "the accuser didn't bring so much as an administrative complaint" as some sort of a shield, I don't get it.

The accuser REPORTED IT TO THE POLICE!!! He got arrested because of it. The university should not just sit back and wait for a complaint when one of your student is arrested for alleged rape. It should set off alarm bells and lead to an independent investigation even if the charge is never filed.

If there was enough evidence to kick him out in 2011, you had enough evidence to kick him out in 2009. It does not matter if the policy was given a wholesale change, because if the policy was ineffective back then, it still is an embarrassment to the university because our policy apparently sucked.

It is precisely attitude like yours that allowed predators like Nassar to abuse victims all those years. We all need to stop hiding behind procedures. If the mistake was made, own it and make it public. That is how things get better. Michigan screwed up with Gibbons. We can and should do better in the future.

02/01/2018 - 11:22am Let's not rewrite the

Let's not rewrite the history...

The event occurred in 2009. He was arrested and questioned for alleged rape. When the charges did not materialize, the university acted as though nothing happened. In 2011, when the sexual conduct policy was updated, the case was reinvestigated and Gibbons was kicked out soon after.

The school should have conducted the same investigation in 2009. That it took that long for Gibbons to get kicked out is an embarrassment to our great institution. The fact that the university got chastised by Office for Civil Rights makes it doubly so.

This is PRECISELY why not being charged/convicted cannot be the measuring stick. The bar is too high. Too many things would be covered up if that was the bar we set for reporting sexual assaults.
