I like Hipmunk and Kayak as places to get a pulse on the market.  When I find the specific airline/flight that I want, I go to the airline's site and book there.

If you're planning ahead, start checking flights and prices as soon as you can.  Get an idea of how far it may drop and how far it may rise.  When you feel comfortable with a price, make the buy.

In terms of price variance through the week, Tuesdays tend to have the lowest prices in the week.

The legal process will have to take it's course.


But given the existing context, both with MSU and the basketball program itself, there seems to be waaaaaaaaay too much smoke for anyone objective to be able to flatly deny the allegations.

03/21/2018 - 7:27pm Actually I was making a joke

Actually I was making a joke about how some football players mistakenly called William Gholston "Tom" during his recruiting visit, thus leading to Gholston heading to State despite growing up a Michigan fan.  Nothing to do with the Tom Anderson who founded myspace.

for future reference, its pretty easy to embed if you're on a computer (and not on the app)

  1. Get the embed code from instagram (hidden under the ... icon at the bottom right), hit embed, and then click 'copy embed code'
  2. Come to mgoblog and open up the edit/create post experience
  3. Switch to the plain text editor
  4. Paste in the embed code verbatim
  5. Switch back to the HTML editor and make sure that there isn't a big red X
  6. Post
  7. Profit!

This works with any content that has an option to download html embed code (e.g. Youtube, Instagram, Twitter, etc)

I was actually going to ask a question around this.  Is there any way that Michigan gets to play in the Detroit regional?  What needs to happen for that to be the case?

Or maybe I've just seen so much coverage on this issue (don't get me wrong - it needs to be publicized) that I'm numb to it at a certain level.

01/29/2018 - 4:25pm The whataboutism is rollicking

In an attempt at a conversely good faith argument, here's why the Celtics, Fighting Irish, etc mascots and nicknames are nowhere as demeaning as Chief Wahoo, the Washington Redskin, etc.  And yes, the term is demeaning, not offensive.


Celtics, Fighting Irish, etc are self-designated monikers.  By that I mean that the name came from the founders' self image.  Irish Catholics founded Notre Dame and created that logo to represent themselves.  The Celtics were created in a city populated heavily by Irish immigrants who have long been vociferous supporters of the team.


On the other hand, the Cleveland Indians were not created by native Americans, and neither were the Washington Redskins.  The imagery and nomenclature associated with them was generated due in large part to racist and derogatory stereotypes.


You're allowed to lampoon yourself as much as you'd like.  But you can't demean others and accuse them of being wrongfully offended.

As a person of color whose ancestors were subjugated, exploited, discriminated against, and often murdered by white oppressors, I sure do love it when the descendants of those white oppressors tell me how I should and should not feel about symbols, nomenclature, and imagery that normalize and white-wash the sins of the past and continue to cast us in a sub-human light!

01/29/2018 - 2:31pm About. Damn. Time.

There's nothing "great" or "best" about a racist caricature.  Chief Wahoo will go down in history with minstrelsy, blackface, and slanty-eyed gestures.


Good riddance.

I'd been running with my old 42" plasma since 2009, so I figured I'd earned an upgrade.  And if I was gonna spend some money, I figured I might as well go big and be set for another 5-10 years.

It helps that I've been working full-time in software for that entire time, so I had the cash saved to be able to afford it.


But 4K is such a quantum leap, especially when it comes to gaming (yes I'm a filthy casual).  I notice so much more stuff, so many more details.

I gave myself a 65" OLED 4K TV and an Xbox One X (for the 4K output) as a combo holiday/birthday present, and they arrived right before Christmas.  I spent the break watching sports and playing games.  It was ... it was awesome.


In possibly related news, I gained more than a couple pounds over the holiday break.

01/03/2018 - 7:00pm Someone else calling OP a

Someone else calling OP a troll without evidence because you posted that he was a troll isn't confirmation - its called circular reasoning.

I'm fisking you on this because I despise actual trolls as much as anyone else, and you shooting off, calling people trolls simply because you don't like them makes caving actual trolls a lot harder.  It adds noise for the already overworked mods to have to sort through and slow the process down for them.

If you can provide actual evidence from OP's posting history that labels him a troll, I'll happily retract any and all statements I've made in OP's favor, and will go and downvote every comment he has made.

01/03/2018 - 6:48pm Well, then start a META

Well, then start a META thread or email Brian/Ace/Adam with your greivances.  I agree that there are some trolls that need to be squashed, and yes I do feel that in general, posters who have less than 1 year of tenure and fewer than say 500 pts should not be allowed to start threads.


But falsely calling OP a troll because you don't like content that he shared pretty much without opinion (which is not really old - the article was posted today, and has Harbaugh's face and the block M plastered on the front page of one of the largest sports websites in the world) is extremely dickish, and is counterproductive to rooting out actual trolls.

01/03/2018 - 6:35pm You calling a guy a troll

You calling a guy a troll doesn't make him a troll.  I actually looked through OP's comments from the past year or so, and I found nothing that would mark him as such.  If anyone is trolling at this point, its you.


As MGrowOld said, he posted an article that has some information that adds a bit of additional context to the current discussion.  If you actually read the article for what it is, as opposed to the narrative you have built up in your mind, you'd understand that there is no implication that Harbaugh is going to the NFL - he is merely the most coveted non-NFL coach.  Is it similar?  Yes - this is the news cycle, but it's not the same.  As tiresome as it may be, and while you have every right to downvote it, being a dick because you yourself are frustrated is well .. really dickish.

01/03/2018 - 6:13pm Dude, did you even read the

Dude, did you even read the article?  The very first paragraph states that the poll is for experts to determine who they would hypothetically choose if they had any choice at all.  The only implication that the coaches listed are actually candidates for current vacancies comes from the timing.  The majority of any correlation lies exclusively with the reader assuming that the two are related.  If one reads the article with the perspective that a bunch of NFL experts chose the top non-NFL coaches who'd be good fits in the NFL, it reads well and makes a lot of sense (the random factual error/typo nonwithstanding).  And you know what, having the most coveted non-NFL coach as our head coach is pretty great, especially since we know he's staying with us!


WRT your ad hominem attacks on the OP, maybe you should stop being a bully.  OP has a low pt total, but has been around for 6+ years.  That's an awfully long con for a troll.  Stop being a dick for no reason.
