Yeah, not sure I get this one. Apparently i'm a little odd for finding "fake everything" to be unattractive. 

To each their own. 

09/21/2018 - 2:12pm OSU, MSU and Notre Dame. 

I…

OSU, MSU and Notre Dame. 

I view Minnesota, PSU and Nebraska as minor rivals a good step and a half behind the other three.

It also means that when there are things really worth being offended and/or pissed of about people don't take them as seriously.

You get your kicks from coming in here and pissing people off.

You need psychological help. 

09/15/2018 - 1:13pm Nebraska is rather poop.

Nebraska is rather poop.

Should we also question the groupthink that calls others who disagree with us "groupthink"?

08/27/2018 - 9:47pm Honestly, if you can't get…

Honestly, if you can't get excited about walking up Stadium (or Main) on game day to watch Michigan play football, particularly when we have as good a team as we do this year, I don't know what to tell you.

I get why Brian (and others) are sad or can't muster up the same excitement as they once did.  There's a hell of a lot negative going around in the world today in college football and beyond.

But we still have Michigan football.  It's one of the vanishingly small number of things that I truly look forward to year after year.

08/27/2018 - 4:54pm The South Carolina game…

The South Carolina game broke Brian. 

I understand why. That game is one that shouldn't be lost by a great coach. 

But if he couldn't haul himself out of his malaise long enough to write an optimistic article about a very good Michigan team maybe he should've passed the duty on to someone who could. 

Obligatory "It's his blog, he can do what he wants", of course, but aside from a small handful of fans here who seem to revel in misery, I think he's forgotten who his audience is. 

08/20/2018 - 2:37pm While it's sad for us as…

While it's sad for us as football fans, I can't help but think that ultimately Grant will make us prouder off the field than he ever would have on it. 

That's not a slam on his potential as a player. It's a statement on his qualities as a person. 

Go Blue forever, young man. 

08/16/2018 - 10:01am Yes, I do, since you're…

Yes, I do, since you're cherry picking to suit your narrative. I'm not sure why you're choosing to ignore his first two seasons, but only you can answer that. 

Clearly, though, you're not particularly interested in context when it doesn't suit your argument. 

I guess we'll both find out whether your concerns end up being proved valid or whether they're pearl-clutching as the season progresses. 

08/16/2018 - 9:52am A) The game was played away…

A) The game was played away from Michigan Stadium. In the South.  It was an away game. 

B) I guess it shouldn't surprise me that you want to move the goalposts. The reality doesn't match your narrative, after all, and if you're not the most negative poster on this board you're certainly in the running. 

At least we agree that we'll win. That's probably the most positive thing I've ever seen you post on here, so I'll take that and call it good. 

08/16/2018 - 9:15am First, Harbaugh HAS defeated…

First, Harbaugh HAS defeated a ranked team on the road: Florida 2017. They were ranked #17.

Second, it's a dumb argument anyway. Michigan has only played four games on the road against ranked opponents during Harbaugh's tenure. Of those four, three were against top 5 teams (#2 PSU and #5 Wisconsin last year,  #2 OSU in 2016).  In each of those cases we were the dog and in two of them John O'Korn was our QB.

You criticize people in here for being overly optimistic. I suggest to you that you're being overly pessimistic.

NOW I know it's football season!

You're entitled to your opinion.

Mine is that I liked how crisp and quick Shea's release is in that clip. 

08/15/2018 - 10:00am 2014.

It takes a truly…

2014.

It takes a truly impressive level of sustained ineptitude with no real hope for the future for me to feel depressed and apathetic about Michigan football. 

The 2014 season did that to me. I didn't even watch the last three games. Haven't to this day. 

08/15/2018 - 9:49am I realize that's just a…

I realize that's just a small clip, but i'm really liking the crispness and speed of Shea's release.

What the actual fuck is going on with this board?

Good lord, dude...

That was my guess as well.  We've heard a handful of times at this point that he's the fastest guy on the team.

Ah!  Sweet, sweet football info!

That sounds like exactly what I'm looking for, then.

How do you want to go about this?

08/11/2018 - 2:52pm I think you might have…

I think you might have missed the part of the original post where I specifically said that that's what I was looking for.

Normally I would agree with you.

08/11/2018 - 2:20pm How are the acoustics for…

How are the acoustics for the band there?  Can you hear them pretty clearly during the game?  One of the things my mom and aunt are really looking forward to is the band.

08/11/2018 - 1:54pm If there is, I don't know…

If there is, I don't know how.

08/11/2018 - 12:35pm I am interested, yes.

I am interested, yes.

Unless I'm missing a trick, I'm not seeing how I can DM you on this site.  I'm open to simply providing you with my email address.

08/11/2018 - 10:41am No, they're still selling…

No, they're still selling tickets but it's at face.

I can get them cheaper on StubHub.

What I was looking for here was a block in a specific area (or seats that are not available at StubHub) where my money can go to people at the Blog instead of strangers.

08/11/2018 - 10:38am The price I quoted above was…

The price I quoted above was from StubHub.

That is absolutely wonderful.

We love you, Larry.  Heart of a Champion.

Maybe you should've taken the hint, then.

Why would you need multiple accounts?

There is an epidemic in this country of people who think their opinions are facts.

Stop posting this shit.  Seriously. 

08/05/2018 - 5:45pm The football season can't…

The football season can't come soon enough.

08/02/2018 - 9:32am No, you heard Obama calling…

No, you heard Obama calling out Fox "News" for objectively being lying, fear- mongering shitbags.

07/31/2018 - 9:48pm 11-1 regular season with a…

11-1 regular season with a loss to OSU being the only blemish.

We don't go to the B1G Championship because OSU is undefeated.

Which means we also get shut out of the NCG and play in a New Year's day bowl game that is disappointing even though we all know we should be happy.

12-1 finish.

It sounds like a cop out, but the best advice I can offer is that you get better at writing by writing. 

Also, find someone (or, ideally, multiple someones) who read a lot and ask them if they'll give you honest feedback during your writing process. 

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.

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.

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.
