We're tucked away behind the Ag Center off of Peytonsville.

1. Don't know about Subaru in specific, but I assume any car making it's way onto the road is probably going to be pretty decent.

2. Your situation and needs are probably going to be a bit different than what many of the people here are used to.  Growing up in a rural area, a BEATER truck with AWD or 4WD is probably what your first time drivers need.  They need to be able to get out of trouble and in something you don't mind getting beaten up.  I had an '81 GMC Sierra and while that truck was.....eccentric, it could go anywhere and was great for the situations I was in driving out of town for camping/hunting/scout projects/etc.  Just my two cents.  I think the car you're looking at is fine, but I do think you have to filter it through what your family's needs are and how your new drivers fit into them.  Vs. just what the first time drivers need.

Hmmm, so it sounds like she did do her due diligence and the Athletic Department panicked.  It also sounds like maybe the outrage mob could have calmed down and waited for the University to say why they did something that appeared to be questionable on the surface.  Question now becomes when does Faehn sue and for how much?

Good luck to him and hope he finds a great landing spot.

Right now as best I can tell, Michigan needs two more departures to make the numbers work for 85.

And that is where we differ.  
 

I'm sick of the Ohio State power plays and Michigan just rolling over for them.

01/11/2019 - 12:17pm Fantastic news!

Fantastic news!

01/11/2019 - 10:54am I am still puzzled that in…

I am still puzzled that in the case of Mattison it's the equivalent of Ohio State pulling a power play and so many people in the Michigan sphere are okay with this.

01/11/2019 - 9:51am Washington I get(although I…

Washington I get(although I think Sam is WAY over-stating his case), Mattison I don't and I find it odd that Sam is going so full bore defense of Mattison is all.

As far as OSU crowing, check out their fan twitter.  As far as bad media storylines go with Michigan loses long-time assistant to Ohio State.

There's no way this isn't a middle finger in some fashion(especially from a guy who already left for Notre Dame and had ties to Urban Meyer).  And I am mostly speculating that Sam is going so hard in defense in order to maintain coaching staff access, which is a good business decision, but I find it odd that there isn't at least a little frustration there.

01/11/2019 - 9:44am You are absolutely correct,…

You are absolutely correct, although I think it was more 62-39 led to a huge increase in the pressure from friends and family to not pick Michigan, and in all likelihood this is a conspiracy theory that's bullshit and of course you send the primary Ohio recruiter and the D-Line coach on the last in-home visit.  

Everything makes sense in isolation, but it's really hard not to squint and see something weird there.

01/11/2019 - 9:36am Again, it's not going to…

Again, it's not going to another job, it's going directly to Ohio Fucking State.  If you really can't see why there's a difference I don't know what to tell you.  It would be like me leaving a client relationship team, going to the most direct competitor for a couple of clients and then using my knowledge of the sales process to directly win over those clients.  One, there are non-compete clauses to make sure things like that don't happen in the real world and two, you bet your ass I would be called an asshole and would have burned bridges.

See, I can analogy too.

01/11/2019 - 9:27am Sam has really drawn a line…

Sam has really drawn a line in the sand defending Mattison.  Is this due to the fact he's friends with him and doesn't want to say a bad word about him?  Or is this a program access thing?  I understand the principle he's trying to get across, but does he really not understand why people are so pissed?  

As far as the other examples being brought up, there was always an intervening stop, no-one going DIRECTLY to a rival.  No-one out of Ohio State would ever go DIRECTLY to Michigan so why is it okay for people to do the reverse.  I get Washington a little better(still don't like Sam's extended defense of the guy and some of the "conversations" Sam claims he had sound like wishcasting).

In any case I find it odd that Mattison is not getting Boren'd by Sam and wonder if this is basically him trying to maintain  relationships with the coaching staff and proving he will always defend their decisions no matter how of a middle finger they seem to be giving Michigan.

I want to take Brian's position of this seems stupid, but find myself nodding in agreement to Craig's position that this is about recruiting and winning a news cycle and seems like an Urban Meyer move. 

01/10/2019 - 2:22pm At Michigan's bitter rival,…

At Michigan's bitter rival, one that is beyond focused on fucking with the team and program he spent a ton of years on and will now be trying to tear the heart out of those players and people he claimed to care for.  AND for good measure made his "good family friends" in the Harbaugh's deal with yet more rounds of bad media coverage.  Oh, and there's also the question of what he knew and when he knew it when he visited Zaxh Harrison.  He may have his reasons, but we're still allowed to think he's a complete asshole for this bullshit.

01/10/2019 - 1:19pm It's about to be Mattison.

It's about to be Mattison.

01/09/2019 - 3:21pm That would be...interesting…

That would be...interesting.  

01/09/2019 - 3:18pm DTR was okay this year but…

DTR was okay this year but not great and there's NO talent in the QB room save for DTR right now, so the question becomes is chasing DTR off all that big of a loss if he can't handle competition for his first two years on campus.  Plus given UCLA's O-Line just took two HUGE blows in the grad transfer of Justin Murphy and Andre James declaring for the draft and one could argue DTR being a backup is preferable to him getting "Peters against Wisconsin'd or Devin against MSU'd"  It's an interesting situation, but I'm not sure Kelly can afford another season like this past one.  

01/09/2019 - 1:51pm There is a lot of noise…

There is a lot of noise about that on the UCLA boards.  He's needed there for sure, but there is some concern that would chase off Dorian Thompson-Robinson.  

01/09/2019 - 12:07pm Interesting, hope he finds a…

Interesting, hope he finds a great opportunity.

01/09/2019 - 9:40am Because it was UCLA, not…

Because it was UCLA, not Ohio Fucking State.  If this had been just about any other school, everyone would have shrugged, but it's not any other school and it seems Ohio State is doing this to specifically fuck with Michigan, it's tiresome and just about the last thing needed by a fanbase that could use good news after a month and a half that has been sub-par(although signing day was indeed fun).

01/08/2019 - 12:07pm Understandable is…

Understandable is understandable, but OHIO STATE?!?!?!  If getting to that fucking job is your ultimate goal, here's an idea...don't work at Michigan.  

Hate to say it, but this looks really bad and is the last thing the program needs(which may be why Day started poaching M coaches with such authority recently).  I am going to offer this as a counterpoint to anyone who says beating Michigan is not the be all and end all of the Buckeye program.  There's a famous cartoon of a bunch of dogs sitting around a table saying, "It is not enough that we succeed, Cats must also fail."  This is OSU's organizing principle and unless Michigan wakes up to this, they may as well make MSU their primary rival in everything and let OSU become the one way rivalry it has already become in everything but name. 

01/07/2019 - 1:20pm Man, I want to be the bigger…

Man, I want to be the bigger person, I do.  BUT it's Ohio State.  There's some things you just don't do.

Something is rotten in Denmark, he just rocketed to the top of the list of people who can never enter AA again.

I think it's mostly selection bias.  If Michigan is going to play good defense on every possession, some of those shots are going to go in and we notice them more.

An opportunity well-earned.  Best of luck to him.

The Ohio St. game forced a re-evaluation of what happened.

Starting to think I'd rather watch the WSU cheerleaders all game.  

That said Iowa St. starting to fire up on the ground a little bit.

12/28/2018 - 8:18pm I think it's more of a…

I think it's more of a mentality thing.  OSU gets a good shot, but teams don't seem to believe they can actually win the game.  That's not the case with Michigan.

Solid point, but hindsight is 20/20.

12/28/2018 - 3:51pm They have a shitload of…

They have a shitload of talent, can coast until the UM game for the most part as they don't seem to get other teams best shot the way Michigan always seems to, and are always going to be focused for the The Game in a way Michigan can't seem to match.  

It's really not much of a surprise.

12/28/2018 - 3:43pm I think we're over-rating…

I think we're over-rating the malaise on the site.  Again, it's free content, not sure why everyone is bitching. 
This site has always functioned as more of a "pulse" of Michigan athletics rather than a reporting site.  Right now, football is not in a good place and the OSU game was as bad as it could have possibly been.  Given the way the season has ended in the past, there just isn't much faith throughout the fan base.  In this case can you really blame Brian, Seth, et al for not being excited?
  No one is excited about this game, I know of ONE of my Michigan fan friends who gives the remotest shit about the game and everyone is resigned to getting embarrassed again, because that's what happens with football now.  

12/28/2018 - 3:29pm Ohio State played like shit…

Ohio State played like shit throughout the year and Michigan looked strong at the time.  Now the egg laying potential is high and after the Ohio State game everyone is looking at this team differently.  

12/28/2018 - 3:19pm Nashville Close to both…

Nashville Close to both Auburn and Lafayette and is a destination/vacation city.  Not exactly a hard sell.

Edit: A downvote for this?  Wonder who I pissed off.

12/28/2018 - 12:50pm Am I missing something or is…

Am I missing something or is the content on this site still free?

12/26/2018 - 12:07pm He’s injured and not going…

He’s injured and not going may not have been a choice for him, let’s not go off to conclusions without actually knowing the story.  This has been an...interesting bowl prep session to be sure, but pulling an over-arching narrative for a specific case is probably not the best, more than likely he’s pulling a Bush vs. a Higdon.

12/26/2018 - 12:05pm Just no South Carolina…

Just no South Carolina repeat is all I ask, fanbase can probably handle a loss, two embarrassments in a row is going to fire up another offseason of pain that frankly, the program really doesn’t need.

12/24/2018 - 3:09pm Since you’re in-state,…

Since you’re in-state, Michigan is a pretty obvious choice to me.  Plus once she decides on Michigan and has four months to make plans, if Princeton comes across with the admission, it’ll likely be a “Neat.” Moment and then moving on. 

12/22/2018 - 9:41pm I feel most of mine have…

I feel most of mine have involved alcohol and peer pressure around destroying inanimate objects.  Always too scared of females to make bad life choices around them.

There was the thing with  the Thai strippers and the chicken, but I’m not sure that was a “bad” life choice per se, except maybe the chicken had regrets.

12/21/2018 - 9:58am If you’ve done your job…

If you’ve done your job right as a parent it’s the latter and I have faith that you have done great damage to your children the same way that I have damaged mine.

Cool Fight Song

In a state that produces a couple of good prospects but is mostly reliant on a neighboring state that is full of talent. 

Fanbase slowly getting driven crazy by a traditional rival on a historical run that started right around the turn of the century.

Comparison's getting a little uncomfortable yet?

Slight quibble on a great show, McNamara is out of the Reno area NOT Vegas.  That’s like saying someone from Grand Rapids is basically from Detroit.

All I remember was a LONG speech before WD ate the lemon that didn’t really address why he was eating it.

I think it just tastes like the candy, the rest is down to your imagination...allegedly, anyway.

Good for him and best of luck to him in the future.

It was fun as hell to have him at Michigan and I look forward to seeing what he does in the league.
