I'm posting for the first time in many years to say:

I'm just here to say this all rules! Viva Beilein! Go Blue!!!

Sad news. Considering the seriousness of the post, it might be worth changing the word epithet to epitaph.  There is a big difference in meaning.

Blimpy burger is a treasure!

NCAA Tournament win = Muppets. Period.

Way to go Tommy. Finally won a big game for Michigan!

DB does indeed have a vacation home in Scottsdale. My fiancee's parents have a place in the same neighborhood. Of course, I'm not sure what this adds to the conspiracy theorizing. Hopefully not that he's interested in some Bill Martin-style R & R? The neighborhood does have a half-dozen world-class golf courses.

Hooray for Snake Oil!!

A win is a win is a win is a win is a WIN!!! Go Blue!

As ugly as it was, at least they pulled out the W in the end.

This is exactly why the chop was ridiculous. Perhaps, it would make sense as a first-down celebration. But not after a third-down-stop. The meaning of the Claw, on the other hand, is obvious. We are a pack of ferocious Wolverines and just tore you to shreds.

Touche. Nailed it.

*I am well aware that the players wanted to be anonymous. That doesn't mean it is ethical for a newspaper to grant that request. Newspapers are expected to have a compelling reason to grant anonymity to an interviewee. I don't think blogger harassment is a compelling reason.
*ESPN cited one current and one former player in their most recent article. I'm not sure that means that "more than a few" of the six players who actually made allegations are current players.
*The issue about whether M should hold itself to "higher standards" than other top-tier programs is one M fans can debate among themselves. But if M's football program is going to be investigated by the NCAA for practicing too much, so should every other program that runs "voluntary" but widely attended workouts.
*Back to the first point, from your perspective the Freep considered "commotion at their new schools" and harassment by "abusive maniac M fans" so compelling that they granted anonymity to their former-player sources. Wouldn't that also apply to freshmen who in no way volunteered to be part of a story attacking Michigan's football program?

08/30/2009 - 11:17am Bothered me too

That bothered me as well. You can't infer from those quotes that those guys didn't know the rules.

Yeah, learned that the hard way. Sorry about that.
