Despite being a joke, this is actually one of the reasons why I always block ads. You simply cannot trust served ads... Then there's the NSFW ones and the blinky-flashy ones that send you into a seizure and the cookie-based ones that think they know about you but are horribly off...

33-6 Michigan

09/21/2018 - 2:09pm Rutger, then everyone else. 

Rutger, then everyone else. 

09/20/2018 - 2:28pm Ditto. And since I am in…

Ditto. And since I am in Florida, I had to explain to the FSU and UF fans that I am not laughing at them for getting waxed by Syracuse or Kentucky, but rather laughing at the Rutger... which is kind of like the Syracuse of the ACC or Kentucky of the SEC...

He plays Mario Kart?

This is the same sentiment I have. I spent 7 years in Cleveland. Almost to a person, they'd be nice unless you said you (A) went to Michigan, (B) support Detroit area sports teams (except the LOLions), and (C) root for the Steelers instead. Then it was pure nastiness. Fuck em. Fuck em all. 

09/19/2018 - 8:10am Absolutely. He's getting…

Absolutely. He's getting double and triple teamed on most plays and blatantly held on others.

Even so, it's brutal. I went to LSU @Florida a couple years ago. It was a 3:30 kick and fortunately for me our seats were on the shaded side of the stadium. The east side was baked for most of the game - including the visitors bench. LSU was decidedly worn down by the 3rd quarter.

This is one of the nice things about Discus - you can block users from your feed. That type of feature would make it so the trolls end up yelling at an empty room. 

09/11/2018 - 2:44pm That was fucking bullshit. 

That was fucking bullshit. 

09/11/2018 - 11:47am I was one of a few students…

I was one of a few students who commuted to main campus. I had a 9:00 am class on the second floor of the College of Pharmacy, so I didn't have a clue what was happening. I arrived to class and was the only one there. I looked outside and noticed the leaves changing and a bright blue early September Michigan sky. As gentle breeze fluttered them, I checked my planner to make sure I was in the right place, but before I could get there, my classmate opened the door and told me the news. We sprinted to the break room and watched in horror as the news came in. This is a moment that is burned into my memory.

Not sure why we cannot fit a sensor at the top of the goal posts... this is technology we should use. 

09/10/2018 - 11:55am Vegas Insider has us as -35…

Vegas Insider has us as -35.5 right now with an open of -34. SMU is really bad. They got hammered by North Texas (down 36-0 going into the 4th quarter) and had a monsoon-aided 9-0 lead turn into a 42-12 rout in a rivalry game with TCU. Ah, the old Iron Skillet game. I think we cover rather easily. 59-10. 

09/07/2018 - 8:17am Western got eviscerated by a…

Western got eviscerated by a mobile QB (Dungey). We do much of the same, M 59-6.

I'll wait until after the NW game to make any predictions. WMU and SMU won't tell us much. Who knows on Nebraska right now. 

09/04/2018 - 10:07am Houston is a solid team that…

Houston is a solid team that was riddled by injuries. I can see them doing it. Denver too, but Keenum? Woof... I just don't see the Browns winning more than 6 games this season. 

09/03/2018 - 11:06am 2018 Notre Dame is better…

2018 Notre Dame is better than every team on this list, except 2017 Oklahoma.

Syracuse had a very easy day on offense last Friday. We should as well.

"fake news media"? Can someone send this dotard to Bolivia, please?

Twitter IS directly responsible for the downfall of civilization.

I don't think this guy can comprehend what you are saying.

Yes. I have been pondering this very question. 

08/27/2018 - 12:11pm Baylor was basically a MAC…

Baylor was basically a MAC-level team in the late 1990s. In 97 they went 2-9 and we beat the snot out of them, 38-3. ND wasn't all that great in 97 either (they went 7-6). We punched our ticket by beating the quality opponents in the Big Ten.

One poster: "...They did what they are supposed to do. Meyer did more than a football coach should be doing." Meyer did more of what, exactly? More covering up? Deleting old texts and emails? 

 

Bitch. Please.

And our WD is on there saying we should nuke the buckeye nation LOL. Press the button!!!

As a pharmacist, I can vouch for this observation regarding benzodiazepines. 

08/23/2018 - 8:07am I have a feeling that their…

I have a feeling that their president, Michael Drake, wanted to can his ass to preserve the fledgling dignity of a university that so long had a win-at-all-costs mentality. The Board of Trustees (BOT) and coach Meyer fought even a suspension and instead of resigning before the parties settled on this HALF-ASSED suspension. Meyer and the BOT at osu actually think they can pull an Officer Barbrady here and sweep their willful negligence about Zach Smith's abusive, morally corrupt and appalling behavior under the rug. This is a man who, above all, BEAT HIS WIFE, and then proceeded to rack up bills sending sex toys to the office, filming himself having sex with a university secretary (subordinate), taking pictures of his dick while visiting the White House, going to strip clubs while on university business, doing illicit drugs - getting caught, sent to rehab, and skipping out on rehab- among other egregious behavior. Urban Meyer knew all of this and continued to employ this bastard. When the shit hit the fan, he denied knowledge of it - a claim that was so easily debunked. And he has the AUDACITY to fight even a suspension? He should be fired and the University should be sanctioned for title IX violations. 

 

It's fucking disgusting that people like this are allowed to thrive. They don't just grift from here to there scraping by on others' backs. They get multi-million dollar contracts. They lead generations of youth... They are heralded by fans.

08/23/2018 - 7:45am Morally corrupt and…

Morally corrupt and intellectually bereft: Win, lose or draw, you still have to go back to Ohio.

08/22/2018 - 7:57am And they're spelled…

And they're spelled correctly. 

08/21/2018 - 2:36pm Blergh. It's espn fluff. 

Blergh. It's espn fluff. 

08/17/2018 - 7:56am One of my favorite songs is …

One of my favorite songs is "Give me my Flowers" by Terry Allen. It depends how close you are with him. My father passed away a little less than two years ago. My uncle called me two weeks before he died and said "If you want to see your father alive, you'd better get out here". I do not regret it and am so very thankful to have seen him, even in such a deteriorated state, before he passed. 

Will you give me my flowers
While I'm livin
And let me enjoy them
While I can
Don't wait til I'm ready
To be buried
And then slip some lilies
In my hand

I hope we are up big in every game and we see a lot of RB3, RB4, and FB action. 

08/13/2018 - 8:39am OSU football will always…

OSU football will always bring in money regardless of who's coaching this fall. As we tend to joke about here, they'll find a way to luck into another top tier coach. 

08/10/2018 - 3:04pm I've only ever hated OSU…

I've only ever hated OSU more than the Avs.

They have the golden arches, we have the golden arcs.

Get 'em Larry!

Just dropped my son off to his first day of middle school... He was much cooler about the whole thing than his dad. (Yes, August 10th is a weird day to start school, but I live in Florida, so that's expected). 

08/10/2018 - 8:43am Woot! Just over three weeks! 

Woot! Just over three weeks!

FanDuel gave me a free entry into one of their tournament contests. I put in Fowler, Rose, Olesen, Leishman, Poulter and Cantlay. Rooting for one of those guys. 

08/07/2018 - 9:12am Damn, Heywood, I am sick of…

Damn, Heywood, I am sick of your shit. The facts ARE known. Your concern-trolling is a thinly veiled attack on #metoo. Who knows why you're so against it and I really don't give a damn. Zach Smith abused Courtney Smith and Urban Meyer knew about it and did nothing. 

07/25/2018 - 9:41am So what happens when you get…

So what happens when you get the five items that are refrigerated and forget about the five items that are not refrigerated when you're at the store? Is the smart refrigerator able to inventory non-refrigerated items? If not, it's what I'd call a half-ass solution. 

07/24/2018 - 12:07pm Incomplete so far. Waiting…

Incomplete so far. Waiting for 1997 to roll around...

I have hope that we can go to the CFP this year. I'll have that hope every year. I was a Junior at Michigan in 1997 and, we were stuck in the 8-4 rut for some time. That team beat #8 Colorado, Notre Dame, #15 Iowa @#15 MSU @#2 PSU, @#23 Wisconsin, #4 OSU and #8 Wazzou.  That was a tough schedule and we came in with ho-hum expectations... Another 8-4? 

This team can do that. We have a top flight D and could have a service-able to good offense. Sounds familiar. 

07/24/2018 - 10:38am I had a SHO too - 1998 V8…

I had a SHO too - 1998 V8 model. That car was a lot of fun, but not very fast. I bought a 2004 Legacy GT turbo 4 and that was pretty quick. Traded in the Legacy for an 03 Audi RS6. Now that thing could haul a** but was expensive as heck to maintain. At that point I sold the SHO and traded in the Audi for my 2010 Tacoma. I look forward to another 15 years of no car payment (knocks on wood). 

07/24/2018 - 9:14am What a crock of shit. 

What a crock of shit. 

07/12/2018 - 12:34pm This is absolutely correct…

This is absolutely correct. And in a broader sense, sports in general rely on these notions and the athletes participating, in large part, support them. I stand behind those who use their platform and popularity to speak out. 

07/03/2018 - 9:11am Tampa, FL. 

Pros: 

Weather…

Tampa, FL. 

Pros: 

  • Weather is splendid with the exception of May when it's hot as heck and doesn't rain. Winters, everyone knows how it is down here. Summers are actually fun with the storms, except when they turn into Irma. 
  • No state income taxes. I got a 10% raise to leave Ohio. Win-Win.
  • Outdoors activities: Fishing is fantastic. Lots of great camping and hiking sites all over the state. 

Cons:

  • The main thing out of state fans see is one of the worst stadiums in the worst neighborhood in the area. RayJay is as bland as they come and is located in the red light district. Good planning. smh. 
  • Biting midges (no-see-ums). Worse than mosquitoes and biting flies. All three suck, but you cannot see the damned things. It's like being attacked by cloaked mosquitoes and biting flies. 
  • Love/Hate with tourists. I love the no-taxes part. I hate the traffic. 
  • The SEC.

LOL. No, I am blinded by the whitespace. 

07/02/2018 - 12:47pm Threads like this show how…

Threads like this show how far we've fallen. Even as a community with a strong common interest, we dissolve into shit-slinging over politics. More more is there room for decent conversation and finding solutions together. Nope. There has to be a winner and a loser. And if you're losing, find a way to cheat to win. Fucking pathetic. 

07/02/2018 - 9:00am Yeah, he gets the chance to…

Yeah, he gets the chance to go 0-8 vs Golden State instead of just 0-6.

Only 12 hours from the Kremlin to Michigan? Lead foot.
