If they flip him back it will forever known as winning "The Battle of Daxton Hill."

People need to start linking protest to businesses related to the trustees.

If they're willing to risk the safety of their most beloved on camera and in public, it's no surprise how they've treated the powerless behind closed doors.

What if my name is Alabama, but the two loss team is Clemson?

09/25/2018 - 1:20am I always cheer against Penn…

I always cheer against Penn State because they systemically supported pedophilia. There is no reason to ever hope for their football success, because they've demonstrated an institutional and cultural policy for that success to act as cover for some of the worst possible human behavior.

The "what are your career stats" at Michigan argument is the bad logic equivalent to dismissing a sabermetrics  book based on the author's lack of home runs. Or thinking Michael Jordan was an awesome NBA GM.

What if they issue free coins for free autograph Say issue 5000 and keep a bunch. If anyone turns them in it burns off the coin. Sell the kept coins when price rises.

Be the change you wish to see.

If you're going to cheer against countries that have messed with elections it's gotta tough to be a fan of the USA.

06/06/2018 - 10:11pm So you mention that…

So you mention that recruiting ratings don't matter because they're like September Heismans but then you lament UM not signing any new top 100 2019 recruits.

There's room for criticism in U of M's recruiting, but playing worst of both worlds is pretty disingenuous.

If you do choose to get another pet, I've always been a fan of getting a rescue and framing the idea of doing so as "the deceased pet's last act was helping us save this rescue's life."

Colorado and reality say "hi".

Ever since I was a kid I thought that man was garbage. Guess I won't be changing my opinion any time soon.

02/14/2018 - 11:18pm Headline: Protesting

Headline: Protesting Protesters Protest Protest-Prostesting Protest.

02/09/2018 - 12:44am Plus every time I hear his

Plus every time I hear his name I remember him getting charged for public urination. 

02/09/2018 - 12:43am Because you don't get any

Because you don't get any quote you can use for a story, and worse because if you ask questions that agitate the people who get to decide who gets to go to press conferences you'll find yourself not invited in the future.

Since that access is a major part of your job, you don't get as agressive as a gumshoe reporter peppering the police chief outside city hall.

12/17/2017 - 1:12am Yeah let's not talk about

Yeah let's not talk about Football and just watch "Law & Order".

12/16/2017 - 10:45pm I mean, I want him to do well

I mean, I want him to do well because: Michigan recruiting.

But his twitter's a bad look. Best practice is not to feed trolls. It just draws things out, is very unlikely to make you come off well, and there's not a ton of upside.  Plus you have the chance to get skewered for some dumb misstep in some battle you didn't have to fight. 

As John U Bacon quotes: never turn a one day story into a two day story.

Also looking at responses. More than once he goes for the insult about someone having a low amount of followers. And another time he brags about an expensive dinner. Way to punch down bro! Scoring points off of privledge is a pretty poor strategy long term. So is repeating your "just being mean" hot take.

Honestly these people are jerks for trolling him, but after reading his account it's hard to think highly of him. 

I'd prefer he had a bit more self control, or at least found someone more versed in social media best practices to vet him. He's pretty embarassing. 

12/05/2017 - 2:54am I like your update and it

I like your update and it makes it feel like there's more parity than usual which is great.

But I stoped watching and attending the NBA games when it started to seem like the league's vision of impartiality was somewhere between Big Ten refereeing and the WWE. 

It's really hard once you lose trust.

10/23/2017 - 11:58pm Most former service persons

Most former service persons are just good solid people trying to protect their country, feed their family, and or follow in an honored loved one's footsteps.

When I used to property manage. I always loved them as applicants because in general - at least the ones I ever dealt with - were respectful and respectable, polite, trustworthy, and more likely to be impressive.

I have nothing but respect for people like that, who have reasons like that, who have made sacrifices that are real.

But we've got to start being honest about what these people are being used for. We're squandering some of our best people and their sacrifices for things far less noble than the lie we tell our selve that they're all out just protecting the homeland. 

Not admitting it because it's uncomfortable or because the reality is unconscionable is far more disrespecful than stuff about songs and high fives. 

10/23/2017 - 11:28pm Blasphemy I know, but I chear

Blasphemy I know, but I cheer for Ohio State over Penn State and Baylor. There are people you tell to go to hell and then there are people who actually deserve to be there.  

10/08/2017 - 12:29am Michigan still did win a

Michigan still did win a national championship at the beginning of those "last 20 years." So no matter what the trend is, your post is embarassing.

09/16/2017 - 9:48pm Be careful. Don't say

Be careful. Don't say anything that inspires critical thinking beyond memes in this thread.

It didn't help that Florida's team laid down like an old man on top of a shark.

09/01/2017 - 3:03am Parish left as a free agent

Parish left as a free agent at age 30 and played till he was 39. Gibson left as a free agent around that time as well.

After he leaves they'll have to say their toys taste better.

Before trying to change the meaning of what someone is saying maybe you should know what you're talking about. 

08/06/2017 - 5:26pm Hi, I'm drunk and haven't

Hi, I'm drunk and haven't paid attention to something for 14 years, let's all stop to listen to my insight on this subject. 

08/06/2017 - 11:53am Anyone not willing to leave

Anyone not willing to leave when it turns horrible for the kid in the first 2 minutes is totally unrealistic about the situation and is just being selfish.

Also, don't do it. It's an awful idea. 

08/05/2017 - 2:06am If he was charged for drunk

If he was charged for drunk driving and potentially could have killed someone I'd totally want him off the team. This is a ridiculous "what if?".

But what if your talent is murdering? Isn't it worse to be practicing your murder?

06/24/2017 - 11:07pm Totally agree. The NBA lacks

Totally agree. The NBA lacks player development compared to other sports, doesn't care about parity, and while strategy is important in any league, popularity seems to be equal or greater. I also don't trust the impartiality of it's governance. 

06/18/2017 - 7:54pm You need to learn the

You need to learn the difference between hating and not respecting. 

06/02/2017 - 10:26pm Fans woudn't lose. Teams

Fans woudn't lose. Teams would have prospects like in baseball. But they'd be on way bigger stages than minor league baseball so you could actually watch them. 

Imagine a team trying to make a playoff push and fans arguing about if they should trade away Lonzo Ball's rights.

To me, the NBA has basically turned into World Wrestling.

Not too worried about Jacobs coming after Harbaugh since he's over five yards away.

05/12/2017 - 12:39am Unlistenable garbage.

Unlistenable garbage.

05/11/2017 - 10:38am I remember when he was

I remember when he was drafted.  He was one of those great athelete / super high-ceiling tools guys but totally raw (read: not yet good) as a baseball player. Sometimes those guys work out, but even without the drugs and injuries he had pretty high bust potential.

04/28/2017 - 11:24am Maybe he meant rounds.

Maybe he meant rounds.

I had a co-worker who confessed that until some time in her 20s she had thought Jabba the Hutt was a historic figure.

"You know...Atilla the Hun? Jabba the Hutt?"

Worked on E3W with him. Brian's incredibly brilliant. Also: his anger gives him his power.

I hope John's doing great, wherever is next.

04/03/2017 - 7:25pm Not to diminish how much of

Not to diminish how much of an idiot Bettman is. But I'm guessing the owners were just too set against it this time around and there wasn't much he could do. 

04/03/2017 - 1:59pm Yeah I wanted to say

Yeah I wanted to say something similar especially after seeing another situation like this in a reddit thread this morning where readers were posting the same comment.

Somehow this is probably going to piss off Rutgers.

03/29/2017 - 11:48pm Best advice. Bring extra

Best advice. Bring extra socks for yourself. Extra warm ones. Your feet will for sure be cold as hell. Someone told me this beforehand. So helpful.

Make sure carseat is installed today. Also make sure it's done right. Where I live some police and fire stations will inspect for you. Look up to see if that's a thing.

Before you go to the hospital (so like today cause who knows if baby comes early) get a small basket the size of like two shoeboxes. Put everything you'd need for a baby diaper change in it: diapers, cream, extra set of clothes, towels, wipes, etc. You will always keep this full to immediatly be able to change diapers and not have to look for every thing on the list. When there is screaming and poop you don't want to have to look for 4 things scattered about the living room to fix the screaming and poop. You want 1 thing and you want to know where it is and be able to grab it with one hand.

If you're using disposable diapers, still buy dozen or so cloth. They're better than pretty much everything for wiping things up. 

If using disposable: sample lots of different kinds of diapers: you'll find one or two tend to work best for your daughter. Some may cause rashes. Some may leak not cause they're bad, but cause of your kid's shape. Some may annoy you for whatever reason. Figure out what kind works best before stocking up.

He might be better off selling hope than results.
