Citing a Federal Agency to investigate police brutality is laughable and works against your point. 

02/05/2019 - 10:04am Except it is different, and…

Except it is different, and you’re simplifying the argument using an ambiguous word - honor. This is a kid’s future. Michigan is just a football program, a bureaucracy. Different mindsets and stakes completely.

People can rationalize it any way they wish, but this is an asshole move. I hope this kid tears it up someplace and makes Harbaugh look like a Grade A dingus.

You must feel there is a substantial amount of dumb, immoral motherfuckers in the world then.

Yep. AK makes an overarching and absolute argument - "every team is doing it" - with no facts to back up the claim. 

01/25/2019 - 4:48pm I do remember. That was only…

I do remember. That was only sexual though. I'm talking sensual, like a wonderful belly laugh or a perfect Mesko pun. The type of thing that turns up both the brain and body heat.

I always wondered when this blog would slip into the world of the sensual. And so it begins. 

01/17/2019 - 2:10pm Yes, immoral was the wrong…

Yes, immoral was the wrong word. Every person has their own system of morality and I overstepped with that language. Though in the face of the current data, I will say, personally, to find it immoral to let my kid play football. I'm also not sure what other activities have to do with this argument, unless you balance the data regarding the risk of those activities against the current CTE data. Any activity/action/inaction carries a risk, but the data suggests playing football carries substantial risk for a large(r) number of its participants. White water rafting, even though I have no data, probably not nearly as much risk. 

01/17/2019 - 1:47pm Did you not read the second…

Did you not read the second half of the quoted paragraph/study? It's likely lower than 86%, because the study was largely conducted on brains where the person already showed symptoms of CTE.

And again I never said banned, but parents should seriously consider the risk of having their kids play football, because I also suspect, as more studies are conducted, the data will further show football puts the brain at considerable risk of serious trauma in a large number of players. 

01/17/2019 - 1:31pm The most recent article I…

The most recent article I read states 86 percent of college football players had CTE, with caveats of course. 

A study published in 2018 by researchers at the VA-BU-CLF Brain Bank found that 190 of 202 football players (94 percent) studied who played in college or the NFL have been diagnosed with CTE. Among players who played in college but did not play professionally, CTE was diagnosed in 86 percent (57 of 66). 86 percent does not represent the prevalence of CTE in former college football players, as families are more likely to donate if their loved one had symptoms associated with CTE. Scientists are trying to understand how these football families, without medical training, have correctly diagnosed their loved one with CTE nearly nine out of 10 times, as there are no published methods for diagnosing CTE in living people.

01/17/2019 - 1:04pm I said nothing about banning…

I said nothing about banning anything. That’s your logical leap; an overreaction argument; talk radio/news type dialog. People will indeed do whatever they choose. I simply said that with the mounting evidence regarding brain trauma in football, I don’t understand, strongly don’t understand, why a parent would have their kids play, especially when there are so many alternatives. I suspect I’m not the only one, and I imagine football will have to be reimagined somewhere down the line, even if it’s way down the line. 

01/17/2019 - 11:58am I’m not sure if it will fade…

I’m not sure how much football will fade, but it should fade completely, unless some serious medical breakthroughs are made, or the game is played drastically different. It’s neary immoral at this point to allow your kids to play football, when the data and growing evidence states they will likely suffer brain trauma if they do.

Finish this one off, win against NU, and it’s the best start for a Michigan basketball team. Good stuff.

Dosunmu with 2 points in the 2nd half. Strong adjustment, strong coaching.

This would be a stellar hire. One of the best D-Line guys around. Really hope this happens.

Nik would eat into Poole's and Iggy's minutes. It has to be somebody at the 4 to round out the roster. Juwan or Webber would be my picks. Maybe even Rice.

Did you not get the memo that the Chargers are now in LA?

I saw your post earlier. Keep on trucking. I’m on day 120 of no alcohol and I feel great. I may never drink again, seriously. Good luck.

Your annoying ass comments aren’t going to make them play any better.

I like JPC. He makes our comments seem smarter, less reactionary, and less full of bullshit. We should all compare ourselves to him and we'll feel better about everything. 

12/31/2018 - 10:44am This comment is actually…

This comment is actually what is pathetic and selfish. You know nothing about the players’ situations yet you spout of an ignorant opinion like this. These players worked their asses off for their team for years.

I know very little about physics, but I’m surprised Weis was able to achieve the necessary angle and force to father a child.

Or fans could just accept a player’s choice to sit out a bowl game, or any game, no matter their draft status.

It’s really embarrassing how many reactionary assholes are in this fanbase, assholes with little or no information or perspective that jump all over young men making important choices about their futures. Hope they shut the hell up now. 

And good luck, JBB.

You need to get out more, Galt.

Storm Ducks are not to trifled with. They’ll bite your knee skin to ribbons.

If he doesn’t want to play at Michigan, he doesn’t want to play at Michigan. Hard to change his mind, and I don’t think this is emblematic of some bigger problem within the program. 

Good luck to the kid.

You're really on a roll today with angry, terrible comments.

Congrats to Devin. He and Larry Foote were my favorite MLBs to watch play at Michigan.

Your second paragraph sums up perfectly why people who get pissed about recruiting and continuously rehash the same negative arguments are annoying as hell. 

12/09/2018 - 2:02pm We’ve gotten Peppers and…

We’ve gotten Peppers and Gary, etc. We missed on Hill and Hand, etc. You win some, you lose some. That’s just recruiting. This post is just sad and petulant. The system should be changed no doubt, but propose something instead of essentially whining via a list. 

12/08/2018 - 7:32pm You’re mad about recruiting?…

You’re mad about recruiting? Perspective, amigo. 

12/08/2018 - 2:45pm You're just insufferable…

You're just insufferable. Michigan won by 11, and they haven't lost yet, and they've already proved they can beat some strong competition. Wasn't their best game, but enjoy it. Sweet mercy.

For me, Elmore is one of the better basketball announcers. Who else is better than him really?

Liberty is a garbage institution and they deserve the fallout over this hire.

It’s still early in the season, and Poole could take his game to the next level.

Melodramatic much? I've never seen a dumpster fire that was 10-2. I've seen one that was 3-9, and I hope I never see that again.

Good luck quantifying what makes a soft or an exceptional player, much less a generation. The same things were said about Beilein’s teams. It’s a lazy argument. They’re soft. Get the fuck outta here with that nonsense.

Except, you know, the kids on all those teams you mentioned are from the same generation as Michigan’s team.
