07/16/2018 - 12:13pm If the part of a game that's…

If the part of a game that's most interesting to a person is scoring, then it makes perfect sense why that person would like baseball more. There's far more scoring in baseball than in soccer. 

I'm sure that soccer, like baseball, becomes more enjoyable as one gets to know the complexities of the game. 

07/12/2018 - 2:57pm Can't decide which was more…

Can't decide which was more solid... the write-up or the troll job. 

07/12/2018 - 12:01pm Voting for a racist…

Voting for a racist/narcissist/ misogynist/ xenophobe/ pathological liar doesn't mean you are any of those things. 

But it does mean that you are ok with having a person like that represent you and your country. 

07/10/2018 - 11:23am I don't understand this at…

I don't understand this at all. How does get fired from the job he's good at but somehow manages to keep the job he embarrasses himself in?

'Reasons', I guess. 

07/02/2018 - 1:54pm "That kind of power play…

"That kind of power play breaks our Republic"

So does refusing to hold hearings to consider a SCOTUS nominee from a sitting President. Didn't stop Mitch McConnell.

07/02/2018 - 11:47am The only reasonable/valid…

The only reasonable/valid nominee is Merrick Garland.

Anyone else would simply be a perpetuation of theft and fraud.

06/22/2018 - 12:23pm You're not "telling it like…

You're not "telling it like it is". If you were you'd have been in screaming from the rafters with the rest of us during Michigan's March Madness run.  You weren't.  The closest thing to a positive post we saw from you was tepid "I didn't think Bielein had it in him" concession. 

You're not telling it like it is. You're inflicting your Chicken Little negativity on this board because for some reason you enjoy making other people as miserable as you. 

You're a rage- filled toddler who's only hair when he's reaching into his diaper and smearing everything around him with shit.

Grow up and learn to have positive, healthy relationships with the things you profess to love.

If you can't or won't do that, get the fuck out of here.  We're all tired of your shit.

06/21/2018 - 5:44pm Put me at 11-2.

Put me at 11-2.

06/18/2018 - 5:15pm Love it.  Should've happened…

Love it.  Should've happened a long time ago.

06/16/2018 - 11:51pm Nah, man, you're just a…

Nah, man, you're just a miserable prick.  I have never seen a positive post from you.  You can dress it up however you like, but you're not happy unless you're unhappy.

06/15/2018 - 6:56pm Love it.  I think it'll look…

Love it.  I think it'll look great.

06/03/2018 - 3:15pm Alternative

Or, alternatively, you could stop clutching your pearls and just leave the thread.  If you don't want to be part of the speculation, then don't be.

I mean, good lord, this is a blog (primarily) about Michigan sports and we've just been told that two players are leaving the flagship Michigan sports program.  Of COURSE we're going to speculate.

05/13/2018 - 9:40am OK

Finally got signed up.  Attacking Syracuse.

05/04/2018 - 6:35pm OK

I understand that you've staked out a position now and, like so many others in this country, can't accept that your opinions are not facts.

But your opinions, as noted above are not facts.

05/02/2018 - 6:28pm Wrong

You are wrong on every count.

I occasionally watch Fox News just to see if anything has changed. Their Trump love has cooled a little, but is still the same "liberals are stupid/mentally ill/anti- American/the enemy" bullshit it's always been.

I get my news from a wide variety of sources and mediums. Having worked in the industry, I know quite well how important it is to verify facts from diverse sources.

Your un-written implication that I am a liberal is also incorrect.

05/02/2018 - 4:14pm Funny

I find it amusing that the people who toss around the words "triggered" and "SJW" are always triggered by the people they call SJWs.

05/02/2018 - 3:19pm Example

You're a stellar example of what I was talking about in my post. Thank you.

05/02/2018 - 3:16pm Opinion

You're entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts.

05/02/2018 - 2:37pm Nonsense

You've bought into the false dichotomy BS that Fox is propagating.

They want their audience to believe that if something isn't overtly conservative it must be liberal which is, of course, ridiculous.

I used to work in broadcast media. There is certainly bias there, but it's toward sensationalism and speed of delivery to the consumer.

Outside of Fox and, to a lesser extent, MSNBC, the political bias you're talking about simply doesn't exist.

05/02/2018 - 1:49pm News

The problem is people who think that propaganda is news.

05/02/2018 - 1:15pm BS

See, this is what you get when you only get your information from Fox News and/or BS hate memes.

Edit: Responded to someone on the app who apparently can't be seen here.

04/30/2018 - 7:20am Which

Which of his recruits are you thinking of? Which one was supposed to have 'developed' to suit you?

04/29/2018 - 6:46pm PSVue

PSVue is a very good alternative.

04/28/2018 - 6:07pm Snowflake

How is calling an asshole an asshole being a snowflake?  But sure, you go ahead and call people snowflakes when it's you who's offended.  That'll work.

04/27/2018 - 7:26pm Info

"I've tried hard to give some info and mostly I've been shit on."

I'm gonna guess that's because you 'give your info' in the most obnoxious, self-congratulatory way you can think of.  But hey, you do you.  Shine on, you crazy diamond.

04/27/2018 - 7:20pm Intolerance

Intolerance of intolerance means you're taking a stand for tolerance.

04/23/2018 - 9:49pm FYI

For the record, I will still buy it.  Probably.  The dearth of college football video games means that anything someone puts out will be devoured.

I just don't have a lot of faith that it'll be any good.

04/23/2018 - 9:47pm What

You know what I don't understand?  How did you not know how to spell 'coaches' in the first paragraph, but had an epiphany in the second?

04/23/2018 - 1:38pm "College"

I've read up a little on this and it sounds like the only thing that makes it a college football game is that it will have recruiting gameplay.

Color me unimpressed.

04/22/2018 - 8:43pm What comment

What umbig11 comment are you referring to?

04/22/2018 - 12:02pm Yep

My fiancee is working toward her degree in cybersecurity right now.  We will not be struggling financially once she's done.  Cybersecurity is a lucrative field that will only become more important in the future.

04/20/2018 - 10:50pm Security

Security, both physical and cyber, is definitely a growth industry.  You can make the argument that it's not a good thing... but it's true.

04/20/2018 - 7:23pm Enjoy

People who like to enjoy life?

04/18/2018 - 6:51pm CK2

For my money, the best historical empire builder on the market.  Absolutely fantastic game.

And the in-game music is almost as good as the gameplay.  VERY atmospheric.

04/16/2018 - 9:39am Snowflakes

Bitching about snowflakes is no different than bitching about perceived social injustice.

If you want there to be fewer snowflakes, stop being one.

04/16/2018 - 9:00am Guarding Heaven

If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

Rest in Peace, Gunny.

04/15/2018 - 4:41pm Tell me

Tell me more about how Shea didn't win the starting job at Ole Miss...

04/13/2018 - 2:30pm 11-2

10-2 regular season, bowl win.

04/06/2018 - 4:07pm Information

I think it means "That's what we got the most information about."

04/04/2018 - 10:55am B1G hockey

So three of the Frozen Four are from the B1G?


04/02/2018 - 7:51am Pittsburgh Left

A Pittsburgh Left is a rationalization made by impatient jerks who don't want to abide by traffic rules.

03/31/2018 - 8:15pm Close

Damn close.  Missed it by one.

03/29/2018 - 12:16pm B1G

I will root for any B1G team in the tournament that isn't OSU or MSU.

I used to be able to root for MSU, but the Nassar thing (and the related assholery) have ended that.

03/28/2018 - 8:20pm Debt

I don't have the numbers to hand right now, forgive me.

But at the very least Milennials have to deal with crushing debt to get a college education... that doesn't really help them in the workplace as it used to. The only thing worse than putting yourself in such debt is not having a college degree.

Add to that the fact that they are inheriting a world where climate change is wreaking havoc, wealth disparity is at an all time high, politics is more divided and polarized than at any time in modern history and wage growth isn't even coming close to the growth of prices...

Then when they bring these things up, their elders are doing the same things they've always done:  Pretend the problems don't exist in the hopes that they'll go away or that they will "self-correct" and accuse the younger generation of being entitled.

I can understand why they're pissed.

03/26/2018 - 5:37pm Sure

Sure.  But then Bo was also from a time where his parents and grandparents hadn't completely fucked up the world they expected him to inherit.

For the record, I'm a GenXer, not a Millennial.  I just have some sympathy for them given the unique challenges they have to deal with.

03/22/2018 - 7:36am Carry's

'Carry's'? C'mon, dude...

03/16/2018 - 11:46pm Offers

That's a very solid offer list. Clearly the young man has a ton of talent.

Go Blue!

03/15/2018 - 11:18pm Yep

This is a nation, by and large, more interested in affirmation than information.

03/15/2018 - 11:17pm BUt

Except if you take that view, literally nothing in the Bible can be taken at face value, which negates the entire purpose of it.

Either it is the literal word of god or it is nothing more than a book of ideas that came from ancient shamans and goatherds, subject to the cultural/historical context of those people.  You can't have it both ways.

03/14/2018 - 7:44am Yeah

Yeah... it sucks when brilliant people try to use their platform to encourage humanity not to act like destructive toddlers...
