Is being waterboarded with cat piss better or worse than being sent to Bolivia?

I was raised in Allegan County and the idea  that it is an OSU exclave is a laughable fiction. It slightly favors M over MSU. I don't know ANY OSU fans from home.

Um its not the anything of July.

Screaming is my general assessment of politics at this point. I find Mgoblog to be a safe haven from politics and this is a disturbance of my safe haven. Admittedly I am quite grumpy about the current state of affairs. Is the use of the term screaming a bit over dramatic? Yes. But it reflects how I feel.

In addition, as someone who is close to the political center (its lonely here). I am fed up with the entire process and am cynical about everything.

Based on the topic list I don't see any issues that are close to the top of my list at the state level. I didn't see anything on roads or the fact that we have 30 billion in unfunded pensions that have the potential to either hurt retired teachers or crowd out other programs. No discussion of line 5. Without discussion of those issues, I don't view it as an actual solution. Just more talk.

STOP!! I come here solely to avoid the screaming stupidity. No politics should be a thing and this podcast should be sent to Bolivia. 

I am putting my ad blocker back on. You guys are better than this.

Trying to follow-up on Schoenle's monster season last year. /s

Checks calendar....It's still (technically) spring, this happens EVERY year.

It's been a regular thing. Even after a reset.

Four way lumbar. I am 6'4" so the 2 way lumbar support just serves as an awkward teenage butt squeeze.

The real tragedy of the Izzone is that if Tommy Boy keeps getting owned by Beilein they are going to have to call it the Wazzone.

06/02/2018 - 1:50pm If Warde doesn't pay him, don't pay Warde

John Beilein is the most successful M coach in a major sport since at least the '90s version of Red and Lloyd. Across three major sports we haven't had a more successful coach in almost 20 years. This would be a neutron bomb on the program and further reinforce that the administration does not see basketball as a priority despite massive gains in the value of the basketball program. WSJ does a yearly valuation and they have us above MSU and even w/ UCLA. There is no alternative. The assistant salary pool needs to go up between 50+% (to match or exceed OSU) and Beilein probably is looking at a $1million+ raise. If Warde doesn't feel like paying Beilein, I don't feel like paying him.

05/30/2018 - 8:10pm Only a good thing

Increased housing prices are a great thing for residents and the city. Higher net worth for home owners, more money in property taxes to reinvest in needed services like schools and public safety or provide financial relief in the form of lower tax rates. More demand for housing means more money being brought into neighborhoods to support local jobs. There are a lot of places where gentrification is a result of restrictive planning and people pay more to get nothing. In Detroit's case its a result of a couple of consecutive years of governance that aren't an unmitigated disaster. Everyone there needs/deserves that and its overdue.

05/28/2018 - 11:00pm Too many options

First thing that came to mind was the horror, but we lost the next week too, so it really wouldn't have done much for the season. As a result, I am stuck with either the 2013 or 2018 basketball title games. Unpopular opinion, but I feel '06 vs Florida in the title game may not have gone well considering that OSU lost 41-14.

05/27/2018 - 10:54pm No they weren't

McKeon+Gentry last year= 43 catches for 561 yds

Butt in 2015 (going into 16) 51 catches for 654 yds

In 2016, Butt had 46 for 546 playing along side Darboh and Chesson (1362 yds between them)

TE in 2018 is simply not close to Jake Butt.

 

05/27/2018 - 10:53pm Be honest

If you could trade Butt, Darboh and Chesson for this set of WRs/TEs for the game against ND, would you do it?

In my mind its not close. Black was the only guy who did anything as a WR last year and he is recovering from a season ender. There is upside, but right now "ain't done nothin" competely applies.

05/27/2018 - 10:38pm WR?

There is no proven talent at WR coming into this year vs 3 NFL draft picks after 2016. I can see how you might think the talent is there, but we had no good pass catchers last year. Mc Keon looks okay, Butt not as good as what we had in '16.

05/27/2018 - 10:34pm 2016 because of the offense

2016 had an offense. 2018 is TBD. While the WR in 2018 seem promising, we had 3 NFL draft pick WR and TE. The offensive line had Cole, Magnuson and started with Newsome. Most of 2018 RBs were also on the 2016 team.  Defense for 2018 may be slightly better, but There is very little proven talent on the O line or pass catchers. (ie 8 of 11 spots). Much of it will pan out, but some of it won't.

05/15/2018 - 10:30pm Its too reliable

My '10 Chevy has had a bunch of suspension parts replaced due to the deplorable condition of Michigan roads, but after 120,000 miles the power train hasn't let me down and in general it is not broken enough to justify replacing even though I could do it financially. I am annoyed at all of the new features that I don't have. It's time for a new car.

05/13/2018 - 5:32pm Haven't you learned

The infinity way tie at QB is in year 4. Your hype-filter is broken. Moving on.

05/05/2018 - 10:59am Try logic sometime

The issue with MSU, as bad as it is, isn't that one guy did one thing one time. It was two guys everyone knew were creeps doing 250+ things, over 20 years. If you can't tell the difference, you should probably avoid making your ignorance public.

Signed, The Rest of the World. 

04/25/2018 - 10:34pm All good things must end

unfortunately Archer is firmly in that camp now.

04/19/2018 - 9:26pm Delany hates MSU so much

Jim Delany hates MSU so much he is making them return to the site of their worst loss since 2008...........Crisler Center. And based on the recruiting rankings he is making them do it with a class ranked below M after losing two lottery picks. I think I might enjoy this.

04/15/2018 - 10:38pm Werenski

Rough penalty for Werenski. The one thing you cannot do there.

04/15/2018 - 9:21pm Washington and their fans

are some of the most whiny and ignorant in the league. They have no idea what is even going on.

04/14/2018 - 9:16pm Too little too late

Brian Mosallam could have fired Lou Anna, he could have fired Strampel, he could have voted against Engler. MSU and the state of Michigan are worse off for him being on the BoT. For his twitter post, I award him no points.

04/12/2018 - 8:06pm Whoa

Mark Donnal has more Sweet Sixteen appearances than Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson combined. Watch your mouth!!!

04/12/2018 - 6:11pm Dump Rutgers

So much for Rutgers bringing us the New York market.

#ThanksDelany

04/10/2018 - 6:56pm Draft combine

He went to the draft combine last year. If he goes again, he would not be eligible to return.

04/02/2018 - 10:59pm LOL

Yeah, he should stop calling that play where we miss the shot.    /s

04/02/2018 - 10:51pm Garbage take

its called basketball, to win you must put the BALL in the BASKET

04/02/2018 - 10:50pm Shooting

One of the worst shooting performances of the Beilein era in one of the worst time (sigh) fun while it lasted.

04/02/2018 - 9:09pm Don't care

Just win

04/02/2018 - 9:06pm 404

04/02/2018 - 7:40pm Is there enough

Is there enough Xanax in the world for the emotional trauma I am about to endure?.....

 

No.

04/01/2018 - 10:10pm Compare to UNC

Chris Webber went to more classes than any UNC players since he got to campus. 

04/01/2018 - 10:09pm Really

So Chris needs to apologize so we can recognize Jimmy, Jalen, Juwan, Ray, et all. I am not saying the banners are the way to do it, but trashing/ignoring the team through guilt by association is juvenile.

04/01/2018 - 10:04pm Beilein's choice

As the best coach in the history of the program, I kind of feel like its Beilein's choice. He is the one who had to clean up the mess. It seems like some recognition of the Fab Five as cultural icons would be beneficial for recruiting. For the curmudgeons, just remember that 4 of the 5 were clean.

03/29/2018 - 6:52pm Should transfer

Izzo won't play him. If he wants to get to the NBA, he needs to have more playing time. He has a shot, but its not at MSU

03/26/2018 - 9:10pm META

Fundraising that is not approved by the moms should be sent to Bolivia.

03/26/2018 - 9:01pm Wymer blows

Pretty much the only person who can draw a Beilein tech.

03/26/2018 - 8:59pm Good

Lou Anna should be next and I will also be voting against all sitting MSU trustees regardless of politics. This is more important than sports, politics, or academic reputation.

03/25/2018 - 6:37pm MOAR MUPPETS

MUPPET RECORD WEEKEND!!!!!

03/25/2018 - 3:05pm Beilein

has also been Izzo's daddy since about the 2010-2011 season.

03/25/2018 - 3:04pm Umm

They weren't even the runner up in the BTT that was Purdon't.

Replay needs a two minute time limit.

03/23/2018 - 7:22pm Mark Donnal> MSU

Mark Donnal has been to two Sweet Sixteens since the last time Izzo got there. Maybe Mark could give Tom some pointers.

03/22/2018 - 11:04pm Strong candidate

Strong candidate to replace Rutgers in the next round of B1G relegation.
