37YOM. Watch every game. She used to give me grief but now accepts it. 

The key is being clear up front. If she has a Google or Outlook calendar she relies on, go ahead and put shared calendar events blocking out the game times.  Give her lots of advanced notice. Hey, honey, remember there's a game this weekend.  Would you like to do anything Saturday evening after the game? The worst is when she gets her hopes up to do something and then realizes there's a stupid football game.  Avoid that and you should be good.

Yes, losing starters unexpectedly before the season is worse. I'm honestly not sure how their defensive staff compares (I just know I love ours!).

Michigan lost 10 starters before 2017 and we were pretty good. Just saying!

07/31/2018 - 9:19pm I agree within reason.  We…

I agree within reason.  We're not going to lose 9 games, but if we did, I'd think we have to start thinking about a change.  As for winning 9 games, I don't think we ever should or will fire him for that.

I would make these my main stops
  1. Tahquamenon Falls
  2. Pictured Rocks
  3. Marquette 
  4. Houghton
  5. Copper Harbor

If I were making that trip, I would eat at every one of the following places: 

  • Marquette - The Border Grill
  • Negaunee - Iron Town Pasties - You must try a pasty in the U.P., and these are really, really good. 
  • Ishpeming - Ralph's Italian Deli - Get the Cudhigi sandwich; it's a kind of Italian sausage and it is fantastic. I ask for marinara sauce, mozzarella and a toasted bun. 
  • Baraga - Irene's Pizza - This one may be pure nostalgia, but I love everything about this pizza, ask for extra thin crust. 
  • Houghton - The Ambassador - others have recommended it. It's great. The subs and the tostada pizza are the best.  

In Marquette, you should check out Presque Isle, and I highly recommend staying at the Nestledown Bed and Breakfast.  It is very new, very clean, Scandinavian feel, run by an older couple that is very sweet. And it's very affordable. 

 

 

04/06/2018 - 3:31pm I think they are partial

I think they are partial synonyms, meaning they have overlapping meanings and can in some ways mean the same things but in other ways differ.  Ignorant commonly means "uninformed", however, "ignore" is active, whereas "to be uninformed" is purely passive. Being ignorant is more suggestive that you have avoided knowledge.  Where you have avoided knowledge of how something affects someone else, in that context, I think it is synonymous with insensitive.

Anyone know why it's ok that his medical condition has been broadcast all over the universe?  I mean, it's newsworthy, but under HIPAA he must have had some say on whether this would become public, right? Do you have to waive all of your rights to privacy just by showing up to the combine? What if you have some more embarrassing condition?

01/24/2018 - 2:07pm I assume this why the message

I assume this why the message is compelling.  But from a substantive point of view, assuming Mattison's tutelage is valuable, you would think it's just as valuable (if not more so) during the formative years when you are not yet a contributor. 

01/10/2018 - 12:28am I care, and I think it

I care, and I think it matters. I don’t personally get offended when people use it carelessly, because I understand that sometimes you just don’t think about who you might he offending, or demeaning. A lot of us grew up thinking it was ok/funny. When I was a kid it was similarly common to casually call someone a fag. But to defend it, rather than apologize for it, and attack someone who is understandably offended suggests (to me, at least) that you are a fucking asshole.

01/09/2018 - 2:37am Sorry, this is bullshit. 

Sorry, this is bullshit.  None of what you said implies that with a better coaching staff we could recruit as well as Alabama or Georgia. None of those schools recruit as well as Alabama or Georgia either, and while it may not be the only reason or even the main reason, it is true that recruiting is a little harder when you have higher academic standards.

Or maybe he's just saying what he thinks is true?  Maybe not everything negative about Michigan is a conspiracy.  Maybe Harbaugh isn't actually that great.  I mean, we're certainly biased to think he is great, does that invalidate it?

I've never seen a player play so far below his ability. He's like the opposite of a "gamer."

11/26/2016 - 7:21pm More calls should be made in

More calls should be made in real time by remote officials who can see the game on camera.. We can see everything on camera; why do we rely on guys standing on the field? Line of scrimmage cam is a good start, but I think the influence of the home crowd is a real problem that could be solved.

04/13/2016 - 1:15pm Yeah? Well, that's like, my

Yeah? Well, that's like, my opinion, man.  I have eyes. I see him turn over the basketball and take bad shots when there are open shooters.  And he's not an efficient scorer. So, yeah, obviously Beilein knows more than me about baskeball (way to go out on a limb), but if someone needs to create, in my opinion Walton and MAAR are both more effective, and Irvin was more effective when he was willing to make the pass rather than jack up horrendous threes. And comparing him to other 4s is idiotic given his role. 

04/13/2016 - 12:28pm Irving seems like a really

Irving seems like a really good kid and I hope he can step it up next year. It was very frustrating to see him get the minutes he got this season and be asked to be the offensive answer for the team; it certainly raises some doubts in my mind about Beilien's ability to see what's going on.  The team just relied on him way to much for a role he's not suited for.  He's not a great ball handler and he's not an elite scorer.  I would like to see him enouraged to share the basketball and become more of a role player.

This is what I've heard.  I never took it, though.  EECS 353 was the hardest class I had. 

02/27/2016 - 1:59pm I think he would say it's

I think he would say it's because you have too narrow a view of language. Like people who get bent out of shape over the use of literally to mean figuratively. You have a point, but ultimately, there is a contemporary use of intangibles that does convey meaning to most of us (dare I say, even you), and this probably ain't the forum to take a stand on it.

Wow, that article was a piece of shit.

02/21/2016 - 3:16pm Could have gone either way,

Could have gone either way, or been a no call. Looked like the defender was trying to sell it. Either way it's fucking horseshit to make such a close call at that point in the game to seal it for MD.

12/07/2015 - 3:34pm Hoke and co. did a good job

Hoke and co. did a good job of working with what they had, and they deserve credit for that.  I'm glad we had an 11-2 season, but it's obvious he stepped into a ready-built team and suffered almost no attrition when he came in.  Hell, even Denard stayed, which made no sense for him to do.  Compare that with Ryan Mallett immediately leaving after RR was hired.  Time ultimately showed that Hoke didn't have the chops for this job, but I think Harbaugh has a much more impressive track record, and don't for one second expect a let down.  So in a way, Harbaugh has the best of both worlds:  the benefit of two good recruting classes and no attrition upon hire, plus he's a coach who has proven he can sustain a program and win.

I disagree. That guy seems like a real turd regardless of who wins the game.

11/20/2015 - 11:16pm Pathetic, embarrassing performance

No rebounding, missed free throws, can't pass the ball inside without throwing it away. No lose balls. No logic whatsoever to who plays. Why are Donnel and Wilson in the game? Why can't we play more than one person over 6'7" at a time? We have the talent to win this game, but this team just sucks right now.
