"Exactly, but he works for Michigan, so obviously he's perfect"
Literally no on in this thread yet has said that. They are criticizing you for heavily insinuating, if not borderline outright saying, that potential private donor fraud is the same as a public university trying to cover up the worst mass sexual assualt crime against children in the known history of the world.
You have a crime of money vs a sexual crime against about 250 children over the span of two decades and you want to act like it's basically the same. There is no comparison there. None. So you can get pissed at everyone calling you out for this dumb ass point that you are trying to make or just accept that you made a really stupid, insensitive and offensive comparison.

How did what he said, in any way, imply that what's going on at Michigan is irrelevant? He simply said that what's going on at MSU is more impactful.

I'll concede your stats, but why are *all* of Speight's struggles solely on Pep? What about the young WRs and underachieving Seniors who couldn't get separation? What about the struggles of the oline?
I'm not saying Pep is good, but he has had some success with Luck (which could absolutely be 99% on Luck) and there are other offensive coaches on the staff who clearly haven't been pulling their weight. I'm just not sure why you want to pin that all on one guy when almost every part of the offense struggled and underachieved.
|04/08/2018 - 7:34am||You decision on Luck's best year and Luck's best||
You decision on Luck's best year and Luck's best year with Pep are both very similar and great seasons, so I don't know what your point was with that part of the comment. I'll grant you that his final year with Luck was great. Cleveland is historically where coaches and players go to get paid to ruin their career trajectory, so I'm not going to hold anyone's performance against them during those days. I'll grant you that his Michigan performance hasn't lived up to par so far.
I'm not saying you are 100% wrong on Pep, you might be totally right, but I'm personally not convinced yet that he is the center of all of the offense's problems. I was sort of feeling during the season that there might be something off with the QBs and the Amazon series seems to be reinforcing that.
The o line sucked at pass pro, Wilton had some early season mental struggles and never got the chance to break out of them cause of the injury, O'Korn's ability couldn't match his mouth, Peters seemed alright, but again, took several hits and got injured, one talented WR got injured real early and the other had typical true freshman mental errors...
There were a lot of reasons for the offense to struggle this year. It felt a bit like Murphy's Law and the Amazon series hasn't done anything to dissuade that feeling.

Why would I ever want to root for OSU, MSU, or Penn State? Two if those programs have created the worst sexual abuse scandals in U.S. history and the other is our biggest rival who doesn't need us giving them bandwagon fans.
It's crazy to me to think there are people outside of the MSU/PSU bubbles who would willingly root for either institution...

"If you believe Michigan can win without stooping to that level"
But the question is "Can they?" College athletics is definitely an arms race and to have any kind of sustained success, it's becoming increasingly apparent that you have to keep up with the joneses somehow
"Also - wouldn't it suck to win a championship only to have it revoked years later after an investigation for massive cheating?"
Not really. I mean, yes, the NCAA won't OFFICIALLY recognize it, but sports fans, sports writers, the internet, the Associated Press, etc. literally everyone else would recognize who played in that game and who won that game. I mean, Reggie Bush still won the Heisman. It's barely a footnote on John Wooden's wikipedia page that he endorsed a booster buying his players cars, plane tickets, stereos, etc... John Calipari still won all those games at UMass and Memphis (and I'm sure eventually Kentucky)
"And as a fan it would feel pretty shitty to know the victory was the result of cheating and wasn't 100% clean."
I believe that, depending on the allegations, most fans probably would not care. Honestly. With so much scummy shit that has come to light over the last few years (shielding a serial pedophile, covering up mass rapes committed by athletes and trainers/coaches, buying hookers for players), that giving some star players some disposable income on the side does not even register to me anymore, and for now, this is all anyone can reasonably assume Saban and his staff are doing and I am fine with it. I don't care.
