Re: Firm zero tolerance policy.  I hope that the situation and evidence is quite convincing at this time to warrant the dismissal.  I'm always a bit uneasy when decisions are made before a person has had his day in court.  2 sides to every story. Perhaps a suspension until his court date would be appropriate? But then, the scholly wouldn't open up in time.

I certainly don't condone DV but we have absolutely no facts available to us at this time. I didn't see such an unwavering position from the blog when JD was (possibly falsely) accused 2 years ago.  Does it matter if you are All-BIG vs. 4th on the depth chart?

**** Sorry Kevin, didn't see your post below what I responded to.  I think we are saying about the same thing.

Soft, much?

Or maybe I didn't see that it is uphill both ways....

11/22/2018 - 8:18pm Belleville plays bigger than…

Belleville plays bigger than the town size because of the ‘recruiting’ that they do. But if we continue to win, UM can tell the coaches to stuff it. We can get equal/better talent out of state for the one 4* they produce each year.

From the way he first landed and reacted, probable A-C sprain. Seemed hurt on the initial ground contact, not the pile-on.

Influenza is a nasty disease.  While everyone suffers to a different degree, it is very rare to get "a mild flu bug".  Usually lasts for 7-10 days, with high fever, dry cough, body aches, sore throat, headache.  Many other viral upper respiratory infections get diagnosed as "flu" when influenza screening isn't done. So, last year, you may have been one of unlucky vaccinated people.  This year, probably not.

BTW, some studies show that those who have been vaccinated may get less severe cases of non-covered strains.  Get the vaccine.  ; )

11/13/2018 - 10:54am I've never understood all of…

I've never understood all of the Gardner-love.  Yes, a great rep of our university but never performed to his expected potential.  Was it due to coaching, lack of other talent?  At some point, we have to recognize that he just couldn't put things together and reach the next level.  College football has seen others succeed with less around them.

 

11/13/2018 - 10:38am Rick Leach----  A competitor…

Rick Leach----  A competitor and a winner, yes.  A really good passer?  No way.  Trust me, I was there.

11/09/2018 - 5:45pm I think that the…

I think that the relationships and attitudes of the recruiting classes feed off of the attitudes of the current team.  The current group of players genuinely seem to like the program and support their teammates.  Of course winning makes up much of this positivity.  If we had won a few more selected games the past few seasons, I think that you would have seen more 4-5* commits and fewer decommits. Quite a change now from the downer that existed after the SC lost last January.

ND's opponent is always my favorite team.....

10/27/2018 - 2:30am Yes, he has developed lessor…

Yes, he has developed lessor recruits, as do other BIG schools (Wisc, MSU, etc). Let's wait until we begin to beat OSU's 4-5*s regularly to extoll him.

10/24/2018 - 4:13pm My comment is always 'why…

My comment is always 'why aren't the feds prosecuting the recipients of the $$$ (players and parents) for income tax evasion?  Of course, they also launder the money given to them, which is another felony.  If a few went to jail, you'd see this clean up pretty quickly.  Most players would only be waiting another 1-2 years to cash in on even more money. I don't understand why these people get off the hook....

10/22/2018 - 12:49am I was behind the goalposts…

I was behind the goalposts for the Wisconsin game.  Many of us noticed the problems they were having on the snaps, holds and kicks while practicing.  They really appeared spooked, trying to make last minute adjustments.

 

10/20/2018 - 7:22pm It's about time that swag…

It's about time that swag has returned to U-M.  I'm tired of being pushed around, shit on.  Leaders like Bush and Winovich not taking it anymore.  Hopefully it's contagious.  Other than Lewan, we haven't seen the mean streak needed to win big for a long time.  No apologies!!!

I would bet that the percentage of anti-vaxxers is higher in AA.  The more liberal the area, the higher the rate is.

10/14/2018 - 2:11am Kudos to the student section…

Kudos to the student section. Actually thought that the rest of the stadium was somewhat reserved. Students in maize were going bonkers the whole game and stayed till the end.

10/14/2018 - 2:07am Worse than the stalled…

Worse than the stalled drives were the long commercial time outs. Really takes the edge off of the crowd.

10/09/2018 - 2:10pm 1+ for the bit of humor....

1+ for the bit of humor....

10/09/2018 - 2:05pm I know that Brian owns the…

I know that Brian owns the site but we all have an emotional piece of it.  How about a little transparency?  Perhaps a superficial accounting of revenues, expenses, salaries, etc would help us know whether to accept the nuisance of the ads or to be willing to pay a flat fee for an ad-free site, without making someone filthy rich?  And for that matter, add the V.3 website, which I still feel is inferior to the previous version and wonder if it is due to a lack of investing proper $$$.

10/08/2018 - 1:52am I don't think Coach Brown…

I don't think Coach Brown ever takes his foot off of the gas, even when the reserves are playing.

At least Barry gave the team a day or so notice before he quit on them.....

09/16/2018 - 1:49am Chlamydia is better than…

Chlamydia is better than gonorrhea.  GC is nothing to clap about.

 

09/08/2018 - 6:01pm No thanks.  Not yet.  Let's…

No thanks.  Not yet.  Let's wait for a significant victory (road victory against ranked team, conference championship, final 4/basketball says "Hello", etc?).

08/11/2018 - 12:39am The OSU panel will conclude…

The OSU panel will conclude very soon.  Maryland should consider hiring them for their investigation.....

08/06/2018 - 4:39am The marking is already on…

The marking is already on the wall. An “investigation” by sympathetic cohorts for a few weeks to let things cool down, a short suspension, probably to include Texas Tech to make it look severe, then business as usual.

I lose track of time....  Is he on his 2nd contract and making good $$$?  Hope so. 

07/16/2018 - 7:14pm Re: Ticket sales. There is…

Re: Ticket sales. There is still a considerable percentage either being given away to youth groups, sold at deep discounts, or even for the purchase of 2 Cokes.  /s    You can’t use ticket sales to call soccer the #2 sport in the US.

07/16/2018 - 6:58pm And on the road, also! You…

And on the road, also! You still out there, Dave?

06/24/2018 - 2:47pm Sorry, I’m not trusting…

Sorry, I’m not trusting blindly until we begin beating our rivals.

06/14/2018 - 7:20pm Did you receive all 9 of the…

Did you receive all 9 of the taps last season???

06/11/2018 - 10:05pm Actually, they have imported…

Actually, they have imported multiple African runners. But, I guess Flanagan can also be considered a foreign runner, although I doubt he received much $$$ for coming.

06/11/2018 - 2:47pm I’ve been trying to be…

I’ve been trying to be patient, giving this ‘new thing’ a chance, but I’m now ready to come out and say it’s a fail. Just bring back 2.0 that doesn’t crash. Don’t fix something that’s not broken.

i ride on trains a lot and often have people beside me look over and comment about how cool the website looked.

06/03/2018 - 6:35pm Uh, no.

Charles is wrong.

06/03/2018 - 2:45pm Sorry guys...

I'm starting to find this speculation a bit distasteful. Let's all get a life and wait a day or 2 and find out when the players choose to announce.

05/28/2018 - 12:16am No, thanks. If she was a male,

very possibly someone you would have barely heard of.  Always had the best of cars, staff and $$$.  Drove defensively, just trying to finish.  Has always been the buzz around racing. 

05/21/2018 - 3:46am Godfather III

was terrible.  But the 1st 2 were tops.

05/18/2018 - 2:52am And I

Didn’t sign up for soccer, either. (Ducks and hides quickly)

05/17/2018 - 8:51pm I’m getting up in years...

just hoping that I’m around when many of these kids (middle school, really?) make it to A2. ; )
..........And maybe see JH win a Natty, too.

05/15/2018 - 8:07pm You sayin’

Miggy never did PEDs...

05/15/2018 - 8:00pm No problem.

He still has a job waiting for him at ESPN!

Cheating sacks of shit..... We all know what lasix is used for.

05/07/2018 - 9:23pm I’ve now lived in Japan for 9 years.

Gotta be the best place in the world to live. Extremely clean, totally safe. Wonderful people, food and both new and old culture. Great train system, buildings and shopping. Oh, and did I mention the women?
The honor and respect shown to their fellow citizens is wonderful.
I need to go back for a while to the US for family reasons but hope to make it back soon for the rest of my life.

05/06/2018 - 1:27am No beef here.

Natural to enjoy 1 yr at OSU more than 4 at UM.  Playing time 1 yr >>>4 years here.

05/06/2018 - 1:22am Absolutely

no snark here.

05/06/2018 - 1:17am What a sick move

to set up the goal in the 3rd.  I don't follow the NHL too much anymore, didn't realize Conner had 31 goals this year.  Must be in the running for Rookie of the Year?  Go blue!

05/05/2018 - 11:46am Mile High~

I've been in medicine for decades, including CO. Never heard of rural hospitals paying even equal amounts, had offers for 1/2 of what the rate was in Metro Detroit.  Maybe things have changed?

05/05/2018 - 11:13am Second grade....

the best 3 years of my life.

05/05/2018 - 10:58am A long time ago,

47th St was referred to as "the DMZ'.  But yea, north of 51st wasn't very charming.

04/22/2018 - 11:18pm It’s not a lack of claiming luggage,

it’s luggage that never arrived and somehow never gets ‘found’ by the airline.

04/22/2018 - 11:13pm Now I know why none of my lost stuff

ever shows up. : (

04/19/2018 - 11:51am And have them

say hi to McDowell and Corley while they are there.
