She spawned the (very recently decided) 2nd worst president and was married to a career politician that cared more about riding a senile president's coattails and appeasing Goldman Sachs than anything else.

I'm not sad. Other people can feel how they'd like.

03/02/2016 - 2:22pm Go Blackhawks! I live in

Go Blackhawks! I live in Detroit and it's great to see my favorite team play here. I just wish they two teams played more often, like a protected cross-conference rivalry or something. It should be fun either way. Maybe they can meet up for the Stanley Cup (though I don't know if I'm emotionally capable of handling that).

11/01/2015 - 12:13am I hope somebody in the media

I hope somebody in the media asks Harbaugh about those two plays and whether or not he's submitting them to the league office for review. In this way, it puts pressure on the Big Ten office to offer an explanation. I don't care about consequences to the Minnesota players (I'm sure there won't be any). But I want them to say, "yes, we missed those calls, those should be targeting calls [or at least one of them] and we will be reviewing our procedures with our officials."

I am sure this is a pipe dream fueled by tipsy-ness.

11/01/2015 - 12:09am The crappy part is that the

The crappy part is that the officials could literally have watched the replay. If they had and said no targeting, then fine. But there was no attempt. If Bolden was ejected for his hit, I have no idea how these two hits weren't even reviewed.

02/08/2015 - 12:24am Whatever we think doesn't

Whatever we think doesn't matter. Coaches were important to Mike Weber, especially coaching stability, hence why he dropped Michigan down. Then OSU does this? The timing of Drayton leaving was too convenient. I'd think being honest and forthright with a 17 year old should be more important than getting him to sign. 

As many have mentioned, a LOI is a really bad thing too.

11/08/2014 - 10:14am Now that is 100% wrong.

There are 2 threads on the front page right now that are all about UM's biggest rivals. Have you read all of the CC comparisons including Meyer and Dantonio? We compare UM's successes/failures to its rivals all the time. Also, I was right behind these people at a game totally not involving MSU:

09/27/2014 - 7:22pm It's not a .GIF but...

09/20/2014 - 11:52pm Nobody cares about the

Nobody cares about the Michigan Man, it means nothing, it doesn't get the football closer to winning games, and keeps the program in the past rather than looking toward the future. We are becoming ND with all our references to past glories. Hell, at least ND made it to a national championship game. What does UM have to show for any of this? An uninspiring Sugar Bowl win? Screw the Michigan Man meme. And Paul Bunyan? Are you talking about the rough and tumble guy who's residing in East Lansing (and looks to be taking up permanent residence there)?

are srs bsns.

09/08/2014 - 1:25pm I believe in the kids.

But it takes good coaching to bring out the best in them. Michigan is a talented team as evidenced by multiple services' ratings, but they have underperformed for years. What makes a good team great relies on several things: coaching is perhaps the most important. Under Luke Fickell, OSU went 6-7. The very next season with mostly the same players, Urban Meyer went undefeated. Michigan routinely outrecruits Michigan State, but look at who has been more successful lately; I attribute that to coaching. Hoke's record at Michigan has continued to deteriorate despite his excellent recruitment of players. He's the head coach and he is to blame. 

The "true fans" talk is irrelevant to Michigan's on-field successes/failures. For the first time since I was 8 years old, I haven't gotten that butterfly feeling when kickoff for a Michigan game approaches. Does that mean I'm not a true fan anymore? I don't care. I just want them to win, and I want to look forward to Saturday football again.

03/27/2014 - 10:31am What the hell are you talking about?

What the hell are you talking about? "Street ball?" There are only "a few respectful young men out there, but not the majority?"

Generalize much?

and you don't pick up on a Fab 5 reference? The Illinois student section chanted "crack house" to Jalen Rose after the bust at a party he attended. Jalen promptly went off for 23 points.

02/18/2014 - 11:59pm What is the point?

Michigan has good games and bad games. This one was a bad one. Why harp on it? The team that turns the ball over less and shoots better wins the vast majority of the time. All this post does is remind us of this fact. I'm getting tired of the faux-analytical nature of this blog. Basketball is a sport full of unpredictability. Shoehorning statistical analysis into it is a fool's errand. Kaminsky had a great game, Stauskus had a bad one, and that's basically it.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate some of the meta analyitics like Kenpom. However, this game isn't explained by them as effectively.

02/02/2014 - 1:29pm Morgan

has got to do something more than kick it out for a contested 3 when he has the PG on his back. Make a post move, come on!

01/20/2014 - 10:29am I agree with you 100% OP.

I, for one, am sick and tired of coaches giving 3 word answers to reporters' questions and players giving cliches during postgame. The reporters are there for a reason, and that's to get an inside view of the game on the field. Well, Erin Andrews got exactly that. Don't complain when you get exactly what you want.

05/22/2013 - 8:46pm If the HOF only took one

If the HOF only took one player at a postition, Ray Lewis would be in over Urlacher. But Urlacher was an extraordinary athlete who altered gameplans and took offenses out of primary reads because of his speed and knowledge of opposing offenses. There aren't stats for a quarterback having to go to a second read because Urlacher took away a TE's route at the last second. Situations like that are what made Urlacher great and it's why experts have been so effusive today.

 

05/22/2013 - 6:26pm Your opinion is bad. Urlacher

Your opinion is bad. Urlacher is the best linebacker in Bears history. Singletary isn't even at the best LBs of all time table, Butkus maybe, and Lewis is definitely. The system Urlacher played in didn't lend itself to a lot of big hits and huge impacts from the middle linebacker spot but nobody could play and move like he did at his size. Like a poster said above he is 11th all time in tackles, made 8 Pro Bowls, and played on one of the most consistently strong defenses of the past decade. It's okay to take off your meatball glasses sometimes.

05/12/2013 - 10:24am OP sucks, this thread sucks,

OP sucks, this thread sucks, and everyone who puts on their fan blinders on an issue is retarded. The Bulls' only chance to beat the Heat is to outphysical them. And don't compare the Bulls to the bullshit that the bad boys used to pull day in and day out. 

It seems that very few people can ever get over their biases and enjoy a tough, competitive series for what it is anymore. All that many want to do is create narratives where none should exist. 

Don't be an asshat and call the Bulls dirty thugs while praising what the Pistons did (with much more vigor) years ago.

05/04/2013 - 8:11am I'm sad.

This was a bad loss of a recruit to NW. Best of luck to him educationally, but I'm not going to pretend I wish him the same success athletically.

I'm going to miss scouring post game photo albums for pictures of you screaming. Go get it in the Association.
