It takes up so much unnecessary space. IMO Reddit has comment sections figured out better than anything I've ever seen. Every step further from that is a step in the wrong direction.

My parents weren’t (and still aren’t) all that into sports. One of my parents went to WMU, one to CMU.

When I was in 4th grade my best friend was a Michigan fan. I just kind of followed suit. Damn I was a good judge of character even then. We’re still good friends.

There’s a thread where he mentions taking down some summer shandy like a champ and shouts out his alter ego for getting in a twitter fight that I still go back to from time to time for a laugh.

10/09/2017 - 7:43am He shouldn't have hit Lewerke

He shouldn't have hit Lewerke like that, but it wasn't targeting. He didn't hit him with the crown of his helmet, and Lewerke wasn't a defenseless player so the contact to the head and neck area part of the rule doesn't apply.

They're trying so hard to appeal to everyone that they appeal to no one. Classic Nickelback situation.

Unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks.

And my last meal would never end.

11/05/2016 - 11:14pm You should have gone to

You should have gone to State. it sounds like you would fit in well there with your concern regarding whether or not Michigan fans actually attended the university.

 

Edit: something is messed up here, I was replying to Yoda.

I, of course, will see myself out.

10/24/2016 - 6:47pm I just went to the rulebook

And anyone can correct me if I'm taking the wrong part of the rules, but Rule 12-3-3-e says that you can challenge the spot on:

"Ball carrier’s forward progress, spot of fumble, or spot of out-of-bounds backward pass, with respect to a first down."

10/23/2016 - 8:22pm He said something along the

He said something along the lines of "this town has been through a lot." I was furious. I don't give a fuck about what the town has been through. Because no matter what they've been through, it doesn't and never will hold a fucking candle to what the victims went through. I'm sure some of Manson's followers went through some shit after the fact too, but I don't care about their plight and don't care about yours either.

You mean the other 15. If he scores in the wrong endzone it would be a safety.

It was pass interference, but it's far from the only reason they lost.

I am on ticket watch until this game. I assume it'll be a fairly cheap ticket and I want to take advantage. Go blue, wear maize, etc.

I'd say there is a 100 percent chance, 1 percent.

I wasn't alive yet, so I would'nt know.

"I didn't cheer, but I was for the Big Ten team, regardless." - Bo on the 1988 Rose Bowl game where MSU beat USC.

I do not have this man's courage.

I don't know about y'all, but I feel like Oakland might still be in play. Dude loves the Bay Area.

10/10/2016 - 5:45pm "Number One in the Country"

"Number One in the Country" has a pretty nice ring to it.

Otherwise, no nickname. I don't want any of y'all giving us the equivalent of #SpartanDawgs. We don't need it.

I thought you were going to go with the classic Henny Youngman joke.

"There are a lot of great schools in the Big 10 conference. Take Penn State, for example. Please, take 'em."

10/03/2016 - 8:06pm I didn't say anything about

I didn't say anything about the material, the guy asked for a price and I gave a price.

I, of course, agree with your assessment.

10/03/2016 - 8:01pm I'm not sure that I'm going

I'm not sure that I'm going to like the result of the Wiscy-OSU game, but I am very interested to see how it turns out. 

And then when I don't like how it turns out I'll just use faulty reasoning to reassure myself that we have a good shot at beating OSU this year.

 

10/03/2016 - 7:51pm Especially when you know that

Especially when you know that line is paired with an elite D and running backs that looked pretty competent last game.

10/03/2016 - 7:49pm They were $15 in 2014 I

They were $15 in 2014 I believe. Unless the next person says it was different. In that case, believe them.

10/03/2016 - 7:38pm You've got a fair to good

You've got a fair to good quarterback depending on who you ask.

I don't know why you would possibly want to play mind games with that guy since you're going to rely on him to keep a clear head throughout the entirety of the OSU game. I want that guy feeling confident as hell in his position, I don't want him worried that he'll get benched for a game if he throws 2 picks (I know it was only one, but I'm counting that Figaro drop as one in this situation).

"We're off to a possibly decent start." - Kermit, following Hawaiian War Chant. And I think it fits.

No, seriously, I suck. Fuck me for that.

And, of course, you were fine to begin with. Here to break up problems is all I is, I is.

You laugh now, but you'll be feeling the hurt very soon. Er, whatever.

 

Nah, on second chance you'll be fine, sorry for causing the disruptiion. 

09/25/2016 - 9:48pm I'm pretty silent about

I'm pretty silent about college football at work, but there's this MSU fan that I can always hear over my cubicle wall. He constantly disparages Michigan. Just this last week I heard him talking about how Michigan "lost a couple of guys, and haven't really gained anyone in their places," and how Peppers is "a hell of a player, really putting the team on his back, but who else have they got?" He has just generally been salty that we're ranked above them.

I've been keeping silent while wanting to pull my hair out. I don't really know the guy so I never pipe up (though I hope he's heard me laugh over the wall). I just put my earbuds in so I don't have to hear him talk anymore. No earbuds this week, I'm really excited for anything he has to say.

09/25/2016 - 9:36pm But then

I was like...!

09/25/2016 - 12:29am Could have avoided the

Could have avoided the confusion by saying PSU's defense instead of this defense. And then your next sentence references seeing improvement next week. So I don't think anyone was out of line assuming you were talking about our defense.

Except, of course, common sense should kick in eventually and the reader should realize that there's not too much to complain about with our defense. And maybe you're not insane, just not terribly specific.

09/23/2016 - 9:38pm Thread title made me laugh.

Thread title made me laugh. My mind flashed to him as a guest on ESPN while the chyron reads "Kevin Garnett, Former Michigan Recruit"

Every time I see your avatar I think it's the Alkaline Trio Maybe I'll Catch Fire cover. Yours is happier. Just letting you know.

Anyway, have a good day.

"Just so we're clear, I can ejaculate with or without you, so..."

10/11/2015 - 12:44am This.

It seems like a chant of "DEFENSE" is only ever used get a defense going to make a stop. I don't think I've ever heard one that was an entire stadium just praising the defense.

It used to be just ND, MSU, OSU, and bowl game. They might be able to open it up a bit with ND out of the picture.

06/20/2015 - 12:09pm I used to pirate music, I

I used to pirate music, I don't anymore. It didn't s stop for any sort of moral or legal reason, I just realized that I didn't need that many songs. I went through a phase where I needed to have every song I wanted to listen to on my phone. I would rarely listen to most of them. Now I just buy and keep around my absolute favorites and listen to the rest on the radio or something. I don't miss it, there's something great about hitting shuffle and not having to skip a lot of songs because they were just throwaways to begin with.

For my all-time favorite artists, I just buy the album blindly. Figure I owe them that much. For new artists, there is most likely a legal free stream of the album somewhere on the internet so I can listen beforehand and eliminate the chance of getting burned on a blind purchase. I end up trying out a lot of new things, buying a few of them, and it works out fine. A subscription service can normally take care of the rest if you need more.

Do you remember that scene in The Social Network where Sean Parker tells Zuckerberg to change the name from The Facebook to Facebook? Same reason: "it's cleaner."

 

And people dig minimalism nowadays, though I guess a real minimalist would do away with the serifs as well.

If they come up with a better frisbee game, will they change the name to "penultimate frisbee?"
