This is the greatest history in the history of days. That I can actually remember.

05/30/2018 - 11:12pm Awesome

How much of a o-line commitment is that, anyway? "Committed. #Go Blue"  There's something so fitting about that for a trench warrior.

Carpenters = Glasgows ? ? ?

Or, is Thatmottasagoblinatroll? 

Good luck reading that bit of insight . . . .

He is going Hulk smash on everyone. Like Godzilla v the Leprechauns. Kinda like that game, coming up, you know . . . 

05/30/2018 - 9:10pm Looks like a great pickup

That is one large future Wolverine. Is he playing against smurfs in his Hudl video?

Out of the Blue Demons?

He wants to be a bigger fish in a smaller pond. More minutes sooner, etc

Thanks to all of you who posted. Feel like I saw it myself.

I have that sweatshirt that Harbaugh wears in the sideline, and I like it, but I’m not so large that some other people’s sizing complaints are an issue for me.

I was able to glean his meaning. Sheesh

05/17/2018 - 3:02pm Not really

Josh Allen went in the beginning of the draft, and his numbers weren’t very good against competition that wasn’t very good NFL teams now fall in love with players for reasons beyond me.

To which site?

05/15/2018 - 4:03pm Weird

What part of town?

05/14/2018 - 8:20pm Me too

I second the Hofbrauhaus recommendation. I’ll add the Augustiner Brewery as well as Mathaser if you like the beerhall kind of thing. If you want more of a restaurant, less of a berrhall, Wienerwald is good for roast chicken. The sausage is pretty good at most places as the German purity laws apply.

On a nice day, the English Gardens are a good place to stroll around. Not surprisingly, the U-barn is safe and well run. It’s pretty easy to navigate around on it. Also, it’s fun to go to the restaurant across from the Glickenspiel, as you can just get a dessert or whatever to watch it ring.

Where you going with that gun for an arm?

Do we have ready cap room for both, or would it require some juggling and shell games?

05/10/2018 - 5:24pm Hmmm

It seems to be working out well for MSU . . .

05/10/2018 - 3:08pm Still

Fire Beilein!

05/09/2018 - 9:24pm Wow

Sounds like LSU got a good one, but as others have said, UM wasn’t the right fit and LSU sounds like it is. Hope he kicks some Crimson butt.

05/08/2018 - 6:12pm Yep

His name checks out

05/02/2018 - 3:20pm Jimmy Garappolo

Adequate in a few games, now paid more than TB12. There isn’t a lot of reason at this point to assume that he will or won’t be an NFL starter. I’m sure Lions fans know what happens when you sign a QB to a huge contract based upon half a season. Let’s wait and see.

04/28/2018 - 11:16pm Oh yeah

Panda power ! ! !

04/25/2018 - 4:39pm Fare thee well

Ibi, we hardly knew ye

Best of luck in Dayton . . .

04/25/2018 - 4:37pm just to be arbitrary

Barkley #1, Chubb #4, then take someone like Mason Rudolph in the second round or wherever.

Keep in mind though, I'm no QB junkie. I think that the OL and RB often determine more of the passing game than the QB does. 

It's tough for me to say though, and I do like Chubb, that I would't go with that mauler OG from ND.

04/24/2018 - 3:17pm Disagree

I’m not sure that what holds M back is the poor play of 2 star slackers like Mo Hurst on the D line. M has the best D line coaches you can find, in terms of evaluation and development. There might be a time for high star players, such as QB, but I think you may need to step back on the stargazing.

04/21/2018 - 10:33pm Context please

I don’t follow college baseball, and 19 wins sounds like an amazing streak, like the Golden State Warriors or NE Patriots. How good is it? Is M a juggernaut, or is this just mildly interesting?

04/19/2018 - 12:25am Don’t we all wish

I’ll never be able to pull it off, but I could really dig that 9 PM bed time.

04/19/2018 - 12:20am Ok then

Nickel says Hill makes a comment of his own, backing his coach up, before 24 hours are up.

04/18/2018 - 11:03pm Look here

You come at the king, you best not miss . . .

No particular reason - Omar Little just works for everything . . . 

04/18/2018 - 10:15pm I get you

Even differing districts in the same state can be quirky. And basically all insurance has limits. But in this case, who knows? Plenty of policies would pay out absolutely nothing on behalf of MSU, given that the rape of young girls and women is not what the policy is there to cover. I think we just are going to have to accept that we won't know until we know.

Fun filled thought for the day - MSU is far from done, not only with plaintiffs, but criminal charges. To me, this is an ideal situation to try some RICO with. 

04/18/2018 - 10:00pm gotcha

And here's another thing we need to nail down. I said this will cost $500 mill. I could be really really wrong, and it's still $250 mill. Part of what has really been itching at me is this: this money will be paid, but from where? Taking the payments from the endowment is ultimately pretty much the same as taking it from the taxpayers. So, who pays?

I'd like to take every cent Larry Nasser has (won't happen) and his pension as well. I'd like to take every cent every administrator involved in any coverup has (won't happen), and take their pensions as well. Board of Trustees, now I'm looking in your direction. (still won't happen)

So, when push comes to shove, who is really going to foot the bill? If you pay taxes in Michigan, or tuition to MSU, THAT is what will happen. I'm sure everyone in the state feels great knowing that their taxes and tuition go to paying the bill for MSU staff and athletes to rape women though. Money well spent, I'm sure.

If you thought I'd come up with a good solution, or any solution, sorry. It looks to me like the bad guys are going to keep their ill gotten gains. Boo.

04/18/2018 - 9:51pm classic !

Thank you, Arb Lover, for filling me in, and thank you, Blue in Paradise, for making me giggle trail mix . . .

04/18/2018 - 9:23pm Sign me up

Just make sure my advisor is an egotistical millenial with no grasp of history. Lemme send you a nice Dutch tulip, little buddy . . .

04/18/2018 - 9:11pm woohoo!

We also have Richard Loeb, of "Leopold and Loeb" fame. And if that's not good enough, Loeb had noted Wolverine Clarence Darrow as defense counsel!

04/18/2018 - 9:03pm Why?

You genuinely are asking the resut of us for detailed analysis of which teams at MSU should get the death penalty? Ok, any team, such as MSU football, basketball, or gymnastics, that have players or staff that rape women, and then use the university athletic department to cover their rapes up, should get the death penalty. How is that unclear?

Their sports department, taken as teams or as a whole department, has fostered a toxic environment whereby women and girls have been raped en masse for years. Do you think these women have all made up the rapes, or do you just want to continue to allow them to do so?

I guess my response is, are you kidding or are you slow? Or do you just approve of rape? You're baffling me here . . . Focus.

 

04/18/2018 - 8:37pm ok wait

Iz you my great-great-granddad ?

Thanks, Tasker. I'm not of an age or lifestyle to get too many video game references. Pac-man was the yellow guy that did the eating, if that helps anyone with anything . . . 

04/18/2018 - 8:02pm cool

Tell me more about these aliens . . . 

04/18/2018 - 7:52pm query

Is it possible that the U's push to bring in out of state tuition from Long Island at all costs made a lot of the actual Michiganders feel "not-rich" in comparison? Not trying to knock on privileged students from out of state or anything, just wondering if it was the disparity more than actual finances that made so many people feel poorly off financially.

04/18/2018 - 7:32pm unfortunately . . .

I know just what you mean. People are upset about this and have pointed out that if any other business had to cough up 500 mill, that business would be no more. But I do think you are right, I just wish you weren't. As much as most of us would like to see the plug pulled, that's a bit of a stretch. Do all of us (one time) Motor City peeps need to be reminded of what is too big to fail?

MSU has (to me) proven that they can't be trusted to run their own affairs, and that at the least someone of high character needs to be brought in to straighten things out, but isn't that just what they think they did? They all want to point to Engler and his band of stooges as proof to their earnest desire to get back on the right path. 

It's tough though, because as you point out, a large university doesn't disappear. Basically, 50,000 semi-students learning about cows and whatever get screwed if you screw MSU. And even if it were possible to give the school a well-deserved death penalty, that just means that those 50,000 people have to find a school to go to. 

I absolutely think MSU should be wiped off the planet for more than one reason, but it just isn't practical. Life doesn't work that way . . . 

04/18/2018 - 7:22pm meh

I'd sooner take MGoPoints than bitcoin, but that's just me . . . 

04/18/2018 - 5:15pm Me too (I think)

I also really don't get the point of coming off in public as phenomenal jerks, and then just rolling over dead and getting nothing for it. It seems as though they think everyone is looking at them and saying, "what classy guys! They didn't try to block where a kid goes to college AGAIN."

Just not sure I understand much of anything that they have been doing.

04/18/2018 - 2:36pm Probably so

Is there any precedent for a death penalty for an entire athletic department that anyone is aware of? The single sport penalty that most of us are aware of is SMU football. 

However, this is considerably bigger than any one sport. It certainly appears that as an institution, MSU either entirely lacks institutional control, or worse, they have it, and are choosing to wield their power in the worst possible manner.

Anyhow, before I ramble longer, does anyone have any precedents that apply to a whole athletic department that is rotten?

04/16/2018 - 11:38pm Ok, let’s use your logic

He also “inherited” the 89 team from Bill Frieder. He literally never took the floor as UM head coach until the regular season had ended.

So, if he inherited the mess, he inherited the team. And I find it hard to believe that he “just has no idea” about Ed Martin while he was and assistant coach. Everyone involved in Detroit basketball knew who Ed Martin was. Steve Fisher doesn’t deserve the whitewash you want to give him. He was a cheat, and deserves to be remembered as the guy that ruined UM basketball.

04/16/2018 - 10:12pm W T F ? ? ?

He also managed to get UM basketball stuck in the darkness for a decade. I guess there are some things that Fisher did that Beilein never will.
