you say stationed... if you are on a military installation, a lot of providers will allow you to connect to their web apps from your on post IP address without the restrictions (at least in the European version of overseas). Look into it and find a good friend with a password.

03/31/2018 - 4:52pm Honest question, since the

Honest question, since the NCAA clearly has no teeth, what really happens if he actually shows up at Michigan and Michigan plays him? I mean, REALLY what happens? Burn the institution to the ground.

03/29/2018 - 3:14am Well, you are correct that

Well, you are correct that it's a national holiday weekend in Germany, but not for that reason unfortunately. Odds lean heavily towards anyone saying something to you about Michigan gear probably thinks you're dressed too casually for easter. You see some Michigan gear around, but predominantly hats as a style choice.

I saw someone post something about 1986 being the furthest from "chalk" of any sweet 16 set of teams, but I don't remember where it was.

There are a couple articles about that. Basically nobody liked him from the start, but they did some focus groups and some people thought he was ok so the show said, F YOU, YOU"LL LOVE THIS GUY, and plowed forward.

10/05/2017 - 1:50am I'm a few hours late so maybe

I'm a few hours late so maybe this gets lost in the swirling drain of internet irrelevance, but sizing can be a minefield with bikes due to the different conventions and geometries brands use.  For example many many people have stories like "I have a specialized 56 that fits me but trek said 52 or 54".

in my mind, the key parameter with getting a fit, and choosing a bike, is going to be the stack and reach.  That is, the vertical distance between the bottom bracket and top of head tube, and the horizontal distance from the bottom bracket and top of head tube.  Beyond that, a stem and handlebars come in all manner of configurations, as do seat posts and saddles, but to make use of that, you need to know the basic frame size is correct.

I dont know anything about shops in Michigan, but a lot of places insist you buy a bike based on your height or inseam, and then try to fit you onto that bike.  This might work pretty well in 80(?)% of cases, but humans are not all normal shaped.  If you can afford it, get yourself to a place that has a fit bike that has the ability to dynamically adjust your contact points in relation to the bottom bracket.  This is a timeconsuming process, and not cheap, but SO worth it.

There is just no way in hell this is accurate.  I mean, even if the IDEA is accurate, and 3 of the 5 of them are truly bad, there is simply no way that we are 3-0 with the right side of the line THAT bad.

ohio state, because honestly can Michigan just beat them sometime

Alabama, because of the way they made me feel 5 years ago

USC, because I was primed growing up in Northern California that they were enemy number 1

Notre Dame because even though the alumni were some of the nicest people when we visited in college, the students were all prime grade dickwads.

Oregon because since 2003 we havent had a good game against them.  

Toledo for ripping off the bandaid of 2009 and forcing me to face reality.

1-AA teams who beat us and whose name i cant spell correctly because their fans STILL APOLOGIZE when they talk about that game. I dont need your pity.

I'm really stretching wrt the word "Hate" on the last 6... I don't think I have three more.

"If I ever see that Jabroni I swear to Jesus that I will suplex him, put him in the camel clutch, break his back, and make him humble the old country way. 

He is the Brian Blair of football.  No he worse than the Brian Blair.  He is jabroni like that fucking Hulk Hogan.  At Madison Square Garden in 1984 I should have broke that Jabroni's back. Instead he stole the belt from me and for that I will forever hate that no talent mother fucker."

The freep argument seems to focus on UofM's "standard practices" or policies a lot.  These arent laws.  If your biggest donor asks you to do something with a half a percent of his pledge, you're going to do it.  Maybe that wasn't correct, but that's how the world works.

Not that he is going to go to Anderson for his MBA necessarily, but there's some irony about a person at UCLA talking about some schools being harder than others, because Anderson doesn't exactly have a "you have to earn it" reputation...

08/05/2017 - 7:06am I don't know that the basic

I don't know that the basic reaction was wrong, or that anything has changed.  Harbaugh can be an ass and said an ass thing.  Now he's he's our ass.  I don't think anybody can be faulted for feeling the way they did when he said those things, or for being happy that we are benefiting from similar stuff now.

08/04/2017 - 10:26am All I can really say (other

All I can really say (other than using a credit card as much as possible with as low a fee as possible), is do not trust anyone's stories about such and such exchange rate or fees or whatever on their specific card, at their specific bank, at one specific time.  Not.One.Person. 

Use the information people give you, but do your own research.  Things are ALWAYS changing.

Oh this is easy, I was at Seacrets in Ocean City, Maryland early in the season (very early) in 2007.  It was the first Michigan game I didn't watch since starting college there.  At halftime some mf-ing cs-er in an ohio state jersey started talking about how Michigan was losing.  Me and the other 5 UM grads were all like, whatever, we've never heard of that team, its fine.  It wasn't fine.

If I'm guessing based on your name you're most likely gonna be about 2 hours north of me, but always good to have some more Michigan people in the mix!
