She must and shall. However unfortunate, she’s on the wrong side of this and there’s no turning back!

No need to sneak- working in the office or on the road, it’s all business.

The point, at that point, is that he can just blame the players...lack of effort, weird guys, didn’t want it bad enough, and on and on and on.

It’s the perfect cycle that when it pays off, he has put away enough benefit of the doubt and good will that the fan base swallows his smug excuses whole and joins him in shitting on the players, or anything else Izzo says bc it couldn’t possibly be him...

Anyone have a replay link for last night's game?

Have done my best w/ google, reddit, streaming sites, youtube, etc. but coming up empty handed...

03/08/2018 - 10:07pm This is the thing- you have

This is the thing- you have two paths: Sustain your existence by innovating for tomorrow's customer, or simply accept that someone else will replace your existence by innovating for tomorrow's customer.  Either way, it's your choice, and the people that lose jobs to 'evil' big business still have to own their decision to remain at the businesses built to serve yesterday's customer.

I understand the personal feelings associated with it, but the very logical framework used to justify blame and anger towards the big businesses, could have been used to justify blame and anger towards whatever businesses the mom & pops outmoded.

Zoom out...it's all the same, and the winners are the one's like Bezos who saw enough of the bigger picture to realize that the Toys R Us's of the world were basically begging to become obsolete the moment someone else figured out a better way.

So...blame Amazon?  Or blame the lazy minds leading yesterday's business models?

I blame the latter, even if I'm one of the ones getting paid by said lazy minds- it was my choice to stay too long.

I mean, come on- If it wasn’t Walmart, it would have been some other retailer.  If it wasn’t Amazon, it would have been some other massive company.  The only common denominator in every ‘they took our jobs’ scenario, is the crusty business model.

Two fitting quotes:

"If you dislike change, you're going to dislike irrelevance even more." -Eric Shinseki

"I do not believe you can do today’s job with yesterday’s methods and be in business tomorrow." H. Nelson Jackson

02/24/2018 - 12:34pm Also feels like it says

Also feels like it says something significant about UM's players- have to believe at least a few of them took a hard pass on what surely amounted to tempting $ amounts.

As is sarcasm recognition, apparently.

4 out of 5 leading sharks agree with this statement.

I get what you're saying with the humor thing, but I think it's more like this:

A deservedly savage juxtaposition of documented behaviors which brings perfect clarity to just how badly MSU's priorities are effed up.

"you had to succumg to personal attacks..."

"try to think beyond the thoughts of a child..."

mmmkay.

If they really, truly knew what they had to lose in all of this, this specific decision would not have been made, accordingly.

EDIT:  mmmkay?

dude. if you're faking it, mkay.  if you're for real, mmmkay.

01/30/2018 - 1:31am "All it does is bring more attention to themselves"

This is their problem- they don't understand this is not 2nd grade playground rules.

mkay.

01/30/2018 - 1:18am Fully agree.  Also, Reality,

They could use an understanding of both.

I wonder if Carter got the abbreviated report...  Sure hope not...  /s

Seriously- it's black and white.  At least make an attempt to see the forest for the trees.

01/30/2018 - 1:10am I mean, I'm trying to grasp

I mean, I'm trying to grasp how they could STILL not get it...

This is a slap in the face to the hundreds of victims who've waited for YEARS to be acknowledged and taken seriously.

MSU can go for decades letting this crap happen, then they somehow find it possible to look into an issue w/ Carter days after she resigns?

Get your effing priorities straight, MSU.

01/30/2018 - 12:59am It's not that they shouldn't

It's not that they shouldn't check into it, it's that they shouldn't get the megaphone out and broadcast it 47 seconds after they hung up the phone without even attempting to verify anything.

By this standard, anyone could report anything, and it should make the front page that afternoon.

So, either they are idiots, or this is clearly kneejerk retaliation.

My guess would be the later, under the guise of "in the name of survivors everywhere, we must not let anything go unchecked!"

01/30/2018 - 12:04am If you're referring to MSU,

If you're referring to MSU, the long-time culture, then this is correct.

Thing is, we're not talking about a culture anymore- this is a police raid in slow motion- every person in the building has time to think about whether or not they want to take a bullet or put their hands in the air.

When it the AG's investigation picks up, very few people (even those utterly drunk on decades of 'Team MSU') will value something so petty as preservation of athletic success over preservation of self.

At that moment, I don't think MSU will have any trouble finding the 'will' to make them go away- fired or retired.

01/24/2018 - 11:58pm I don't understand why people

I don't understand why people think it matters if she knew at all- when the scale of harm is undeniably catastrophic and lasts for 20 years, that is a DIRECT result of the very culture a leader instills.

If a leader does not actively create and facilitate a culture of protection for those who cannot protect themselves, knowingly or not, that leader has instead created a culture of enablement and is completely responsible for everything consequence that just needed the cracked-door opportunity to exist.

The "but I didn't know" card is not in her deck- the only one a leader gets to play is "I made sure I knew what I could and eliminated opportunity for what I couldn't know".  Compare this to finding childcare (which it actually is in many cases)...  Which babysitter or daycare are you taking your kid to?

Seems I married a sociopath... Any pointers on getting one of these people to reverse their sociopathy in this single little area of life? It's been 10 years and I'm just ready to stop having to deal with it!

12/23/2017 - 9:54pm Hit the nail on the head.

Hit the nail on the head.

Here's my grievance:

UM fans who apparently don't understand the importance of contextual relevance. They can't see the trees for the forest, cherry pick seemingly indisputable stats, and use blanket rationales to justify their lazily arrived at opinions.

This is THE very essence of the UNACCEPTABLE crowd.

12/18/2017 - 9:17pm There's no better way to deal

There's no better way to deal with this crap than to simply turn the lights on and let the cockroaches be ID'd.

I get it- lots of normal human reasons to prefer avoiding that, but seriously...of all the places we should be able to just call it out plainly, seems like a blog, on the internet, where people use usernames, to talk about sports?....Yep, that's THE place.

I'd out them in a heartbeat.
