07/18/2018 - 3:39pm WTF is a All Purpose Back…

WTF is a All Purpose Back/Fullback? That doesn't even make sense. Two completely different earthlings on a football team.

07/18/2018 - 2:15pm Every single ingredient and…

Every single ingredient and every single shelf item is completely curated and the ends of the earth were searched to find it. The food is quality, and the staff is extremely well-trained, and this is why you pay a lot of money for it. My wife and I will get there every few years and we always split a sandwich and it is plenty. 

The thing that bothered me about Zingermans even back in the 80s is all the hipsters who work there. I don't know why. Maybe its because I think of a great deli and I think of NYC and a bunch of gruff/cheerful family members yelling at each other while they make my sandwich and serve up my matzo ball soup. But these are probably just my hangups, which is nothing new.

User name definitely checks out!

There's a stairway window there, about three stories up in Rumsey House, that I will donate $100 for if they rename it the Yossarians Tree Bucket o' Water Drop Window. Every time I came back to my dorm room I had to scope that window out.

I enjoy the soccer takes, especially in the summer when there is not much going on with Michigan sports.

It was pointed out yesterday that the AD of Missouri took the job at Baylor--fucking Baylor--in the wake of that scandal. There are lots of people who would love that job at Molest U. This is a weak excuse.

07/17/2018 - 11:38am And they say we're arrogant?…

And they say we're arrogant? The entire administration at MSU does not give one fuck about anyone but themselves and their precious season tickets at sporting events.

Sam Webb said Rocket is known as an excellent leader. Now, if he's also the best, then we have a fit.

07/15/2018 - 4:45pm And let me add that I like…

And let me add that I like that Beilein's system really excels with a PG who has some experience in it and he therefore recruits guys who will likely need 3-4 years to make it to the league (Burke the exception). But shit I'd prefer to go back to the days when they all played 4 years--think how exciting college basketball would be if we went back to that. 

07/15/2018 - 4:42pm Guy probably thinks he's a…

Guy probably thinks he's a one-and-done and OSU guaranteed him starters minutes. At Michigan he'd have to compete for time with two really good, established players in Simpson and DeJulius. Pretty simple really.

07/15/2018 - 4:15pm Recruits are probably…

Recruits are probably looking at that depth chart loaded with big names as freshmen and sophomores. Especially when assistant coaches from other schools are saying "Whoa! Lookie at that there depth chart, son!"

07/13/2018 - 2:32pm Franklin the last two years…

Franklin the last two years has also had excellent QB play and the most dominant RB in the B1G in a generation. If Harbaugh's 2016 team had a Saquon Barkley they would have won the B1G and would have been in the playoffs.

Somewhere her husband awaits you with a baseball bat...

07/10/2018 - 1:58pm That a program that has the…

That a program that has the reach and tradition of Michigan does not have a real professional pbp guy is an absolute disgrace. I can't listen to Brandy unless I absolutely have to. He's shrill, disjointed, and unprofessional describing a game which is um, his job. If it's not Shep then they should just go outside the family completely. They could find somebody really good who fans could learn to love over the next couple decades.

Columbia are their own worst enemy. Childish.

07/03/2018 - 3:01pm No Brazil. Sick of them.

I…

No Brazil. Sick of them.

I'd love to see England keep advancing, but I don't think they will go all the way. I like the way Belgium plays. If I had to choose I'd say France looks as strong as anyone, and Mbappe is electric.

This has been the best World Cup I can ever remember. There have been several great games and it seems like scoring is up.

07/03/2018 - 1:35pm If this recruiting blitz is…

If this recruiting blitz is indicative of what's going on with the rest of the program, and I think that it is, then we are going to see Michigan at the next level up this fall. I think Harbaugh was mortified by what happened last season and he has got this whole thing locked in. And I bet he's game planning for the Buckeyes and MSU every damn day.

07/02/2018 - 12:59pm Seems like a logjam building…

Seems like a logjam building up at DE but that's a good problem to have.

07/01/2018 - 1:58pm A game like this illustrates…

A game like this illustrates why the penalty kick for a foul in the box is far too punitive. Russia was totally outclassed in this game, but because they were basically given a free goal they were able to force PKs and get a win. The PK should be made significantly more difficult--it should be converted on about 20% of the time. 

On another note, I enjoyed watching my new favorite player, Kyrien Mbappe of France. That kid is just utterly explosive. 

07/01/2018 - 1:51pm My solution: After 90…

My solution: After 90 minutes open up the benches and play til the death.

I always see a vagina. Is it just me?

If he was at Michigan State he'd be starting next week!

Just as a pure business decision please know that one of the best things about this website has been that it is an oasis from all the fucking anger.  You are losing that.

So he's another fucking politician? Yawn...

I recently purchased several pairs of those crazy $15/pair boxer briefs, an expense I would normally never endorse, and I can tell you they have changed my life. I just walk around the house in my drawers all day.

06/29/2018 - 3:08pm American politics reached…

American politics reached its singularity event a couple years ago when we were actually told to choose between a criminal and a clown. My epiphany at that time was that there is little if anything I can do about our politics and that I would like to live the rest of my remaining years without the rage it all engenders within me. I don't follow the news either. I am so much happier and I realized that when you no longer care politics is actually really fucking boring.

This World Cup has the most parity I've ever seen. Literally anyone can beat anyone at this point. Put your foot on the gas and keep winning.

I hope they're employing Michigan theater major Jimmy Harbaugh in this recruitment!

06/26/2018 - 1:28pm Yes, great instincts and…

Yes, great instincts and feet, but you can tell he's also been well coached. He is patient and really follows his blocks. It's been a long time since we've had a dominant RB, though I am excited about Karan Higdon especially this year. He seems to be on a mission.

06/25/2018 - 3:14pm I like him, but when I saw…

I like him, but when I saw Wandale Robinson's film...oh my. That kid is slippery.

06/25/2018 - 2:53pm I saw that too. No, Mathis…

I saw that too. No, Mathis goes to Oak Park HS, northern suburb of Detroit, and they're putting out lots of D1 talent of late.

All right! Thinking Devin Funchess?

06/22/2018 - 2:21pm The Toad and the Ewok. It…

The Toad and the Ewok. It all evolved to protect them and it can't be stopped because they are both still there, and obviously MSU has decided that winning games is more important than figuring out how to fix its rape culture.

06/22/2018 - 2:04pm The Brazil mystique is over…

The Brazil mystique is over for me too. They seem to think they just have to show up and the other team is going to lie down for them. Neymar plays like an entitled brat. Their style of play used to stand out, but other countries have caught up to them. In fact in the last WC Germany of all teams played some of the most beautiful soccer I've ever seen. 

06/21/2018 - 2:46pm That Robinson film is pretty…

That Robinson film is pretty incredible. Kid moves like a Ferrari. Hope they put on the big sell this weekend.

Russia has a guy named Jerkoff.

06/19/2018 - 2:09pm Yes, but Peru played a…

Yes, but Peru played a brilliant game and should have won against Denmark. That game and Spain v Portugal have been the best of the tournament so far.

06/19/2018 - 2:06pm Very nicely done. I hope you…

Very nicely done. I hope you're enjoying your retirement!

06/15/2018 - 2:21pm There's literally no…

There's literally no oversight. It's a closed loop of Sparty glad-hander buffoonery. They cannot police themselves, quite clearly. Does the Governor or legislature have ultimate authority over the entire university? Because the only way a proper course can be set is to have an outsider brought in by somebody with no connection to the school. 

I still maintain that at the bottom of the collective Sparty unconscious is an insecure child trembling and sucking his thumb in a dark closet at the thought of losing their beloved Mork and Ewok. They are the most powerful people in the university and this entire dysfunctional culture grew up around them to protect them and preserve this Golden Era they've been on.

06/13/2018 - 4:04pm Not buying that. Miggy loves…

Not buying that. Miggy loves to play baseball. I think people mistake his playful personality for a guy who is not serious. He's been playing through a lot of pain the last few years. He's a serious player and I'm sure it's killing him to not be able to live up to that contract. Jim Leyland always said Miggy was so smart that he could manage one day.

My guess is that this will be his rock bottom: the injury, the awful thing with his wife and mistress, etc. Holding out hope that this will all ultimately motivate him to come all the way back and get into top condition so he can put up the stats that will get him into the Hall.

I have a really funny gif that I no longer know how to insert here. Progress!

06/11/2018 - 1:30pm Glad I'm not the only one…

Glad I'm not the only one who was hit hard by Anthony Bourdain's death. I'm pretty sure I have a world-class bullshit detector, and in him I saw a kindred spirit. I guess upon some reflection it's not so surprising that he was really hurting. Often people who refuse to look at the world and the people in it with anything less than complete candor do so at their own risk. By the way the "where everything is beautiful and nothing hurts" line was actually from Kurt Vonnegut and obviously refers to either heaven and/or death. On top of everything else it sounds like Tony was just exhausted. He may be a celebrity but I'm actually going to miss that guy.

06/09/2018 - 1:56pm After all the bad PR for…

After all the bad PR for having the historically worst mass-rape debacle on their campus for two decades, they are still this tone deaf??? Not even to mention the sex harrassing medical school dean and the dog-fucking professor. 

They clearly do not have any idea how pathetic and petty they appear to everyone else. I still maintain that all the Michigan hate at the hollow black core of Spartan Swill is the animus that drives the blindness to rape culture on that campus. Apparently beating Michigan at football is still more important to them. 

Hang 7 touchdowns on them and go for two.

06/08/2018 - 1:10pm When they pick a number 1 in…

When they pick a number 1 in the fall, it's not like they're going to tell the other guys they suck. They have way too much invested in both Peters and DM. They are going to be in their ears every day, trying to keep them engaged and confident. Not only for the long term good of the program, but because the backup is literally a snap away from going into the game, and as we saw last year the 3rd string guy could also become the guy. 

By now the issue with Peters is well known. Harbaugh came right out and said that he had to be more assertive. Peters obviously has heard that message, but will it actually come out of him? A QB has to have some swagger. In fact a guy with guts and less talent is better than a shy guy with all the talent in the world. Exhibit A: Jim Harbaugh his entire career.

It won't be me but I wouldn't object if somebody started a Kickstarter to hire someone to carry around a sign that says "Dog Fuckerz" when we play them at that shithole little stadium of theirs next fall.

06/07/2018 - 4:32pm Though Simpson and Matthews…

Though Simpson and Matthews have not shown great shooting ability, they both can break down the defense off the dribble. This can help create open looks for others and hopefully by season's end at least Poole, Livers, and one of the freshmen will become reliable at open 3s. And Teske will be given a chance to show he can hit from outside. I have a feeling he is working on his shot all summer.

Could it be that the linebacker depth is very young and stacked?

06/06/2018 - 2:26pm Here's hoping Michigan beats…

Here's hoping Michigan beats the Molest U Basset Hound Rapers by 5 touchdowns this fall...

06/02/2018 - 3:16pm I believe he can still throw it over them mountains...
