Went to a petting zoo one time as a kid, and a goat came up and started eating the paper bag I was holding.

Greizmann is such a little bitch. All I can think when I see him is that I want to punch him in the face...

For guys that have bought rings recently, how much did you pay?

How is the quality of the picture for the projector? I know some people who have these in place of TVs, but all the ones I’ve seen are serious downgrades from your regular HD TVs picture wise.

Do you have an estimate of how much it costs to run? My dad has always recommended this setup, but given that the only thing I think I’d need it for would be to keep things in the fridge/freezer from going bad (which doesn’t seem like a problem if the power is only out a few hours, as long as you keep the door closed), it doesn’t seem like it justifies the cost. 

Might just be the difference between us; he’d readily pay more for convenience, whereas l typically will gladly take inconvenience in order to save a few bucks.

Anyone else notice that England is using the train formation on their corners?

The responses have been pretty benign, at least compared to soccer/NBA threads...

07/05/2018 - 2:49pm It’s weird what I do and don…

It’s weird what I do and don’t remember. I’m pretty sure I started reading my freshman year in 2005 (I must have heard about it from another student), but for sure I was reading in 2006. I don’t have much memory of the board, and honestly I don’t remember what haloscan was (back then I was most interested in UVs and game previews and recaps), although I do remember some specific things, like WLA, so I must have been reading the board back then too. 

The craziest thing is that I’ll be hitting my 10 year anniversary in a few weeks, but for a number of years I lurked without even realizing I had an account. I had to go back through my emails to check the dates, but the gist of it is apparently I created an account in July 2008, and then promptly forgot about it and continued to lurk. I didn’t realize I already had an until I tried to sign up over three years later and got an account-already-registered error. I didn’t even get to 100 points until the end of 2013, and it wasn’t until 2014 that I was posting on even a weeklyish basis. Crazy to look back.

No problem, and thanks for the follow-up. That's interesting, and the type of thing that if it isn't in one of the front page posts, I'd probably never have heard about it.

I for one am interested to hear more about the rumors.

(thank you based Greene)

I saw this in another hello post too. I may just be reading it wrong, but for the life of me I can’t understand the “based.” Not sure if it’s a typo, not sure if it’s a reference I don’t get, but it doesn’t seem to make grammatical sense. Can anyone enlighten me?

Yeah, the Spider Sims post has been the first one listed for me for a week.

Can someone remind me who this?

05/16/2018 - 4:41pm Maize

Not sure about maize uniforms for football, but I’ve always thought that the maize uniforms are by far the best looking for basketball and hockey.

05/16/2018 - 12:41pm Territory

Why did we go after the North East and abandon Michigan/the Midwest to OSU, Auburn (?!) and whoever that green/black team is? Is it similar to Australia in regular risk, in that it’s easier to defend with less entry points? Speaking of which, Florida seems to really be sitting pretty geography wise.

05/02/2018 - 4:34pm Baits

There were two big benefits to living in Baits (although I think only Baits II is left) over other dorms: single rooms and parking spots.

Baits has a decent amount of single rooms, and the chances of getting a single on Central Campus as a freshman are approximately zero. But more importantly, since so few people request Baits (or North Campus in general), as opposed to just getting stuck there, if you put a Baits single as your first choice, you’re going to jump all those people whose first choice was Central or the Hill. So if a single room is more important than location, doing that takes your odds from zero to decent.

Further, Baits is the only dorm with a parking lot big enough for freshman to be able to get passes, so if you want to have a car at school, Baits (or walking from Bursley) are the most convenient options.

You of all people should know that when robots take over the world there’ll be no more need for medical tech...

04/18/2018 - 12:39pm Spirit

People have given pros and cons for Spirit, but for me I don’t fly them because they have a much greater likelihood of destroying a vacation than pretty much any other airline. I’ve heard of multiple people who have had to completely scrap vacations because Spirit cancelled their flight and wasn’t going to put them on another one for a few days. I feel like that even happened to Brian with a trip to Vegas. To me that kind of risk isn’t worth a small potential savings.

04/18/2018 - 12:09pm Private Window/Incognito Mode

I use a private window/incognito mode when I’m researching flights, and only sign in to my frequent flyer account when I’m booking. I’ve heard that sites will raise prices when they see that you’re repeating a search (i.e.via cookies) as is common when your researching options.

03/31/2018 - 5:43pm Blind Side

I haven’t seen the movie, so this might be a stupid question, but what does the Blind Side have to do with the violations (besides that it took place at Ole Miss)? Did Oher get illegal benefits?

03/30/2018 - 4:02pm Wright

Is Wright dirty? I feel like he has the reputation of a clean coach, but I don’t know much outside of the obviously cheating ones...

03/28/2018 - 12:15pm Two Weeks

While Jeff Jackson getting two weeks to prepare for us isn’t ideal, it seems like it actually benefits us more, since we’re a young team still growing in Mel’s system, and two weeks off between games might give some opportunity to continue shoring up fundamentals.

03/28/2018 - 11:33am Mercy Rule

So we’re expecting them to get UD Mercy ruled?...

03/27/2018 - 4:30pm Z

Somebody send this to Z, ASAP...

03/27/2018 - 2:47pm Question on Prep

How much, if any, prep is done for the potential 2nd opponents in these types of situations? I certainly get that you don’t want to be looking ahead, but on the other hand, you’d want to have a chance in the 2nd game if you do win the first. For one, I’m sure there are at least interns/analysts getting film ready so that you could hit the ground running immediately if you win. But does some of your practice time go toward fundamentals that would be particularly useful against a potential 2nd game opponent, even if not as relevant for the 1st game, like let’s work on beating a zone because Duke has been running one, or let’s work on breaking a press, etc.? In other words, how much if any time during this week are we devoting to Nova and Kansas, even if it’s not explicitly stated as such?

03/24/2018 - 6:39pm One Two

One, two, we want moooooore goals! Sieve sieve sieve sieve sieve sieve sieve, it’s all your fault, it’s all your fault, it’s all your fault, it’s all your fault

03/19/2018 - 1:56pm Music

Is that the music playing in that video? What the hell is that?

03/19/2018 - 12:38pm Airballs

I can’t ever remember a Beilein team airballing so many threes. I think I counted at least 3 or 4, and from good shooters, too. That’s when you know something’s off, and you’re just praying to get the hell out of Wichita with a win...

03/18/2018 - 12:36pm That’s Good Right?

Sounds like a favorable draw all things considered.

03/16/2018 - 11:21pm Go Blue!

Go Blue!

03/10/2018 - 12:25pm #1 Seed

We were #1 seeds in 85 and 93, per our games with #16 seeds.

03/03/2018 - 8:59am Coliseum

You can park in the Coliseum lot off Hill, it’s free and an easy walk over to Yost.

01/19/2018 - 3:41pm DBs

I’d rather have had Friday and maybe taken one fewer DB. It feels like we’re so thin at both offensive and defensive tackle...

01/14/2018 - 10:03am Willis Ward

Willis Ward was a star football player/athlete at U of M in the early 30s. In 1934, Georgia Tech threatened not to take the field in their game against us if Ward, who was black, played. His good friend/teammate Gerald Ford nearly quit the team over it until Ward convinced him not to, and in the end U of M decided to bench Ward for the game.

01/10/2018 - 4:21pm Viserion

Says the guy who just signed Viserion. 5*, blue chip, game changing recruit if I ever saw one...

01/03/2018 - 3:00pm Bama

I don’t necessarily think think the playoff needs to be expanded, at least based on this year. Honestly, Bama’s CFP win over Clemson notwithstanding, there were really only three teams that deserved to make the playoffs, and it felt like Bama made it based on reputation and default (the committee had to pick somebody) more than anything else. Wins over LSU, Miss. St. and really no one else don’t do much for me, and I’d have been just fine with putting UCF in the fourth spot, even if the justification was that Bama didn’t deserve a spot more so than that UCF did.

Honestly, the committee missed an opportunity by not including UCF. With no one really deserving the fourth spot, it was the perfect time to throw a Group of 5 team a bone that could be used to deflect criticism in later years with more Power 5 contenders.

The NCAA’s website is now showing the game at 5:30. Winner plays UConn, who beat UNC in a shootout...

11/16/2017 - 4:54pm Walk-Ons

What I’ve been wondering about is walk-ons. If a student on academic scholarship wants to walk on, does he have to give up his scholarship or else count against the team limit (e.g. 85 for football)?

What are the rules re wearing different jersey numbers? It seems like you could get quite a competitive advantage by having guys switch jerseys back and forth..,

10/19/2017 - 12:21pm Anchor vs. SDE

What’s the difference between Anchor and SDE (with respect to your summary)? I thought they were the same thing, with Anchor just being Don Brown’s term for it...

10/16/2017 - 10:31am Punt Block

So what are blocked punt returns counted as? The same as punt returns?

10/14/2017 - 11:31pm Weis

Charlie Weis says otherwise. The biggest win of his career was the “Bush Push” loss to USC in 2005...

10/10/2017 - 2:12pm Game

Is the game still on? Last I heard they were considering postponing it since the field was under water (literally can’t make this stuff up)...
