In addition to the very good advice above, she/you should take lots of photos of her condition before she heals.  A picture is worth as thousand words, and (unfortunately) gruesome photos of the victim are what connect with juries and get the highest damages awards.  And, yes, if everything you say is true, she should definitely sue.

Having listened to Martin's post-game press conference, my impression of him changed dramatically.  Watching him during the game, he seems like a typical rude, angry, loud mouth coach, always trying to intimidate the officials.  His interview, however, showed him to be extremely gracious in his praise of Michigan and coach B; willing to open up about specifics relating to his team's performance; and all in all a real gentleman.  It's amazing what the pressure of big-time coaching can do to someone -- turn them into a real Jekyll and Hyde.

Or like playing at Cameron.  Actually, I would prefer to see basketball play at Yost rather than what I've seen of hockey this year.

Oh, Shit!  I forgot my power towel.

Or the Jerry Tarkanian route and chew on a towel.

1966-68.  Set then NCAA record with 347 rushing yards against Wisconsin.  RIP, Ron Johnson.

12/05/2018 - 9:23am Collins's strategy was…

Collins's strategy was outstanding re: Simpson.  By playing off, not only do you induce him to take shots he rarely will make, you also prevent his dribble drive penetration, at which he is so effective, both passing the ball and making layup/hooks from ridiculous positions.  And, you clog the lane for guys like Iggy and Teske.  I expect this strategy to be repeated; but hopefully the coaches can come up with a counter-strategy to this move.

12/05/2018 - 9:18am Totally agree.  Anytime Iggy…

Totally agree.  Anytime Iggy goes to the bench the offense suffers.  Anytime Teske goes to the bench the offense and defense suffer.  When they both go the bench at the same time -- the Apocalypse.  

I'm also still opposed to Beilein's autobench on the first foul.  Matthews was benched just one minute into the game, and I think he never was able to get into a flow when he came back.  Teske was benched with his first foul, which allowed NU to creep back into the game in the first half.  

I also think it's tough on a player to know that the first foul you commit, you're coming out.  That has to force you to play tentatively.

 

12/05/2018 - 9:09am The best thing about this…

The best thing about this game is that it will help keep the team's head out of the clouds, thinking they are unbeatable.  And we still won the game.  And they got to perform under pressure late in a game and managed to hold it together.  All in all, a very productive evening.

12/05/2018 - 7:48am Not only the directional…

Not only the directional schools, but matriculation at Lansing Community College will also be down significantly, as MSU dips into the shallow end of the gene pool.  Hard to believe MSU has fewer applicants than any B1G school other than Nebraska.  I expect to see John Engler cut-outs filling the seats in MSU class rooms.

If you can't get into college, go to State.  (Clap, clap)

If you can't get into college, go to State (Clap, clap)

I you can't get into college and you know you REALLY SUCK,

If you can't get into college go to State.

(Yes, I've been to Yost a time or two.)

I signed on just to upvote this.  Not politics; just fact.

Okay. Women's still rings, then.

12/04/2018 - 8:03am If this is a "New Year's Six…

If this is a "New Year's Six" bowl, why is it being played on December 29?

12/04/2018 - 7:45am It must be that massive home…

It must be that massive home court advantage NU enjoys due to its enormous fan base.

12/04/2018 - 7:39am I expect that ultimately…

I expect that ultimately Iowa and Minnesota will fall out of the bracket and the B1G will get 8 in.  Minnesota because Pitino.  Iowa because Iowa.  I also wouldn't count out NU to get in; but not starting tonight.

12/04/2018 - 7:34am First of all -- they're not…

First of all -- they're not strippers, they're dancers.  That's what my mom told me, and she would know.

Second, I think that whenever Iggy hits a three, the Crisler announcer should shout:  "AND THAT'S ANOTHER IGGY. . ."  And the crowd will respond, "POP!"   After all, he's got a lust for life.

Fortunately, at noon on 12/29, I will be on a plane flying home after 10 days in Vegas.  Please wake me when the game's over.

11/30/2018 - 7:55am Mods, please delete this…

Mods, please delete this overtly racist thread.  Comparing the proud, indigenous tribe of Chippewa Indians to sub-human primates is unacceptable. In fact, it is simply ape-palling.

11/28/2018 - 8:00am The Apocalypse.

The Apocalypse.

Yes, it was that bad.

We want Frames to stay at PSU for at least the next 10 years.

Anyone know how much tickets are going for in EL this week?  Think I can find a seat?

Fuck your wife! . . . I mean it.  That will make things better.

Yet another loss.

IU just being IU.

Hoosier daddy now?

Just a reminder -- here is what this board was saying in January 2017, less than two years ago:

FIRE BEILEIN!

And I was among them.  Mea culpa.

 

11/14/2018 - 8:05am Actualy, with having to play…

Actualy, with having to play OSU, MSU, and PSU every year, having Rutger and Maryland on the schedule gives us a couple of cupcake games, which we need, in order to balance out Bama vs. Citadel, which happens this Saturday.

11/14/2018 - 7:57am Can't believe Tennessee…

Can't believe Tennessee doesn't make that list.  Fuck Fulmer; Fuck Peyton; Fuck the Coaches Poll.

11/14/2018 - 7:56am My bad.  I apparently still…

My bad.  I apparently still counted the ND loss from this season.  So, Harbaugh will be over .500 against our archrivals even sooner. No reverse jinx needed.  Go Blue -- pound the bloody snot out of OSU!

11/12/2018 - 8:03am Actually, Minnesota is 5 and…

Actually, Minnesota is 5 and 5, and PJ has not yet gotten B1G level recruits, as he brought over a lot of his WMU recruits when he came to Minn.  Plus, he just destroyed the best team in the B1G.  Rutgers is not nearly on the same level as Minn. under PJ.

11/12/2018 - 8:00am Well, that 80-yard run will…

Well, that 80-yard run will likely be the high point of their season, so .... there's that.

11/12/2018 - 7:56am A better way to get the New…

A better way to get the New York market would have been Syracuse, which has an historic national reputation in football and a long connection to NYC in basketball, through the Big East.  It also would have revived a great traditional rivalry with PSU. 

11/08/2018 - 7:13am Rutger in N.J.

Rutger in N.J.

Bad reality show with

Snookie at QB.

Fuck. No point in my applying to EMU then.

But that's how they are about to start it.

11/06/2018 - 11:07am Don't get your hopes up.  As…

Don't get your hopes up.  As is usual down there, they will be playing us with 18 against 11.

11/05/2018 - 7:48am To all of you who are…

To all of you who are interested in arguing over hypothetical CFP seedings, I have just two words that you need to remember:  BEAT OHIO!!!!

10/30/2018 - 11:44am A big win against 13th…

A big win against 13th ranked PSU should move us up into the top 5, if we aren;t there tonight.

10/30/2018 - 11:41am I'm more concerned about…

I'm more concerned about Bama winning out in the regular season and losing a close one to a 1-loss UGA team in the SEC championship game.  That's the scenario most likely to get two SEC teams in the CFP and keep us out/

10/25/2018 - 5:37pm As in "The Pits"?

As in "The Pits"?

10/23/2018 - 8:21am The Farmer's Almanac…

The Farmer's Almanac predicts tornadoes in Ann Arbor for the day of next year's MSU game.  So, there's that.

10/20/2018 - 12:38pm This totally sucks.  Sucks…

This totally sucks.  Sucks all the energy when we had momentum.  Have to sit in a cramped locker room for who know how long.  Another example of Sharty luck.

10/19/2018 - 1:51pm So, no need to play the rest…

So, no need to play the rest of the games.

10/17/2018 - 8:42am I was an undergrad during…

I was an undergrad during the Darden years and he was my absolute favorite player. A great all around safety, and the guy who caused Woody to tear up the sideline markers by making a great interception (yes, I was there).

Most people don't know that Darden played without a helmet.  His Afro provided enough cushion to protect him.

10/16/2018 - 3:42pm No, it was a pack of rabid…

No, it was a pack of rabid Wolverines.  Ambushed them in a field 100 yards long and tore them apart.

10/16/2018 - 3:40pm Given our recent record…

Given our recent record against Sharty, we can use all the support we can get -- from 'Moody and especially from Allah.

10/16/2018 - 7:42am The flag was for following…

The flag was for following Lavert around after the pick-6.  We are supposed to be Leaders -- not followers.

10/16/2018 - 7:31am Well, maybe if you didn't…

Well, maybe if you didn't ask the question so "pointedly" you'd have better success.

10/15/2018 - 12:35pm I couldn't care less about…

I couldn't care less about point spreads.  This Saturday, I don't care if it's 1 point, 10 points, or 50 points. Just WIN THE GAME!

10/08/2018 - 8:22am Come on, guys.  Obviously,…

Come on, guys.  Obviously, the Indiana bag man was willing to outspend the OSU bag man.

10/06/2018 - 7:41pm And regression below the…

And regression below the mean is even worse.

10/02/2018 - 8:01am Nice that you "accept the…

Nice that you "accept the fact."  Uh, what were your other options?  Personally, I think all home games should start at 8 a.m. and they should all be against west coast teams.
