What's the staff response to the dataset published by Umich1 on Reddit? It's pretty damning evidence of officiating bias against Michigan's defense over the last 4 years.

More like "it's all about the refs not giving Ohio State a tilted field in The Game every year," but I guess Michigan becoming the next Alabama is an easier pathway forward.

05/22/2018 - 5:11pm Harbaugh's sideline behavior

was surprisingly absent last season. He needs to bring it back.

05/02/2018 - 5:56pm Ethnicities are a subset of culture.

I'd argue diverse ethnic backgrounds is an important part of American culture. After all, America's appeal was that anyone can come to America and make a life for themselves regardless of where they came from. You know, American Dream-related stuff. Or do you think people just sailed across oceans because it was easier than hopping borders in Europe?

More important to the conversation are cultural aspects every American gets to enjoy. Here's an obvious example: The Civil War was fought over cultural differences between free states and slave states, and would have balkanized the US had the South won. 

05/02/2018 - 3:20pm Since a comment chain

is not the place to write a Ph.D thesis, I'll just show the different sides of the debate.

My side: Roman history, Ottoman Empire history, in-group preference of people, society trend to de-emphasize masculinity correlating to the following problems of present-day USA:
--decline in marriage fraction
--birth rate trending below replacement 
--rise of single-parent households and its effect on communities such as PoC
--rise in male suicide rate
--decline in female happiness, contradicting the Hedonic treadmill, while male happiness remains constant

Your side: protect [the marginalized people] from [the oppressors], blind faith it'll all work out for the betterment of everybody

Seeing as how I'm not THE_KNOWLEDGE, I don't know what the future holds. Seeing as how 'inevitably leads to' is an impossible standard of evidence even for you, I'll just lean on the wisdom of intellectual giants.

05/02/2018 - 2:46pm You are correct.

Then again, every label when used as a pejorative is applied to whatever is disliked in order to avoid intelligent discussion of the real issues. The provided definition is the underlying context for when it gets applied.

05/02/2018 - 2:01pm Why are you assuming conspiracy here?

1. No conspiracy required; just dogma insisting that male-only spaces are bad and must be converted to co-ed (but female-only spaces are important and must be protected). This trend has been consistent for several decades now, and will likely continue for everything except for sports.

2. Not worldwide; only talking about the US.

3. The US has been a monoculture; it's only when people living in the US embrace cultural relativism that it becomes a polyculture that balkanizes.

05/02/2018 - 1:03pm Urban Dictionary can define a concept though.

It happened to state the idea rather well, so I cited it. It's not just about being "inclusive and understanding;" it's also about the ramifications for a society that destroys its cultural identity so it can be more inclusive. You can use Wikipedia to look up 'balkanization' if you'd like to see what happens next.

05/02/2018 - 12:12pm Cultural marxism =/= economic marxism

From Urban Dictionary, Cultural Marxism is "the gradual process of destroying all traditions, languages, religions, individuality, government, family, law and order in order to re-assemble society in the future as a communist utopia. This utopia will have no notion of gender, traditions, morality, god, or even family or the state." --https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=cultural%20marxism

04/13/2018 - 10:54pm Surprise! Michigan missed opportunities to win.

As anyone watching the game would know, so did OSU. When OSU gets gifted 2 holding calls on plays that aren't holding at all while being able to get away with holding all game (both defensive backs and O-Line), they can win despite playing poorly. 

Michigan needed perfect play to maintain a lead for 2 straight years. You're either blind or an OSU fan if you think otherwise.

04/13/2018 - 5:26pm 10-3

So long as Ohio State is an elite Big Ten team, Michigan will never beat them unless the Big Ten actually forces the referees to call a fair and balanced game. As long as they CAN contend for the national title, Michigan won't be allowed to spoil their chance at a playoff spot. Refs improve to 3-0 against Michigan in The Game.

Schedule is hard enough to warrant picking another loss out of PSU/Notre Dame/Wisconsin.

Harbaugh remembered this year that Michigan is supposed to lose its bowl games, so the tradition will continue until Michigan becomes elite enough to make the playoff.

01/18/2018 - 8:17pm No kidding.

Michigan needs to git gud against the Ohio State Terrible Refs.

12/23/2017 - 9:14am The refs have costed us

2 straight victories over the Buckeyes. Anyone that thinks otherwise needs to be shot out of a cannon.

12/13/2017 - 3:24pm Correct

What is easily forgotten is that very few men actually achieve the level of importance and significance to be included in the story of history. If given the choice between average male existence and average female existence I'd be tempted to pick average female existence for the longer life expectancy and inherent value to society from possessing the more scarce resources needed to create the next generation.

11/25/2017 - 3:58pm No complaints toward the coaching.

The refs, on the other hand, deserve their own special "Not-Snowflake, completely reasonable take" thread for the insane amount of no-calls awarded to Ohio State.

Feel better soon Ace!

10/24/2017 - 11:02am How about that Rich Rodriguez guy?

He was such a good coach; knows a lot about fielding good offenses. Maybe Harbaugh can hire him as the offensive coordinator for next season.

10/21/2017 - 10:00am 50-10 Lions.

50-10 Lions. 

The Detroit Lions don Michigan uniforms to win the game.

10/02/2017 - 4:10pm Might as well throw this out there.

The data being collected by tech giants have proven to yield scarily accurate psychological profiles on users. This study shows that nothing but Facebook likes can be used with 78% accuracy to determine a user's race, age, IQ, sexuality, personality, drug use, and political views: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/03/11/facebook-likes-pr…

It's not a big stretch to think Google will be able to identify mass shooters before a mass shooter even starts planning said shooting based on the user's internet usage. Of course, many might think this kind of power and leverage over citizens would also have negative consequences, but that's an entirely different argument.

09/24/2017 - 4:27pm If the Lions-Falcons ref

had been in charge of the crew during Michigan-OSU 2016, Michigan would have gone to the playoffs. That is all.

09/11/2017 - 5:15pm Here's a suggestion

to remove institutionalized sexism on MGoBlog: The 'MGoPoints' record assumes the gender of every user I downvote.
 

No automatic alt text available.

09/11/2017 - 1:18pm And by judging an entire sex

by how its richest, most capable members are doing (rather than at all economic levels), you can build up a false narrative for yourself that men rule women in a democratic society while women are the majority of voters. 

09/02/2017 - 8:44am The first time in my life

where I'm simultaneously laughing and cringing. Well played.

09/01/2017 - 6:40pm I've been reading this site for a decade,

and this is the worst Michigan football preview yet.

...not because of the front page content; that's been great. Simply because there's still something missing: THE_KNOWLEDGE hasn't given us the season review yet.

Edit: My prayers have been answered. I'm sorry to have doubted you, oh great one.

08/31/2017 - 8:48pm Blasphemy!

Member when Dave Brandon suggested we move The Game earlier in the season? Member how well that turned out?

07/26/2017 - 6:17pm More importantly, this:

 

I quit playing video games so much this summer

implies you still play video games. Which ones have you been playing? 

(on second thought, taste in video games can be as polarizing as politics)

07/10/2017 - 2:39pm Needs more Heiko.

Draftageddon isn't the same when no one drafts 6 quarterbacks to play wide receiver, running back, tight end, center, and linebacker before Brian takes his starter.
