Clearly-Dangerous Marble (TM)

12/31/2013 - 4:39pm That lineup is ridiculous

I may have wet dreams thinking about that lineup.  So many awesome things they did while in the red sweaters.

12/31/2013 - 4:37pm Screw you all

And have a happy new year too

12/18/2013 - 7:57pm How about

How about 'what it is?', instead of 'what's up?'.  One of my favorites

12/18/2013 - 7:44pm Tell that to Da'shawn Hand

Went to 'bama over michigan...just saying, recruits don't always see it the same way almuni do.

12/18/2013 - 4:24pm Thank you

I needed that.  Was losing confidence that my arguments were well reasoned based on all the downvotes.

12/18/2013 - 2:41pm You can downvote me all you want

This year in Michigan football has made me a realist. I no longer look at everything through maize colored glasses.  I think you all need to take a step back and reevaluate your perception of the Michigan football program, vis a vis Michigan State.  I hate to admit it as much as all of you, but as long as we remain mediocre, State will overtake us.  

I hope I'm proven wrong, I really do.  But I haven't seen anything in the last 6-7 years that gives me much hope.

12/18/2013 - 1:48pm You may be right

You may be right, but a Sparty win at the Rose Bowl will go a LONG way toward changing that.

12/18/2013 - 1:38pm You can't argue with him

Given the trajectory Michigan State is on, he's right.  Coaches are going to start wanting to go there over Michigan.  You can downvote me if you want, but if things keep heading in this direction, I suspect I will be proven right.

12/12/2013 - 1:32pm What is the original source of Bolivia?

I don't think I was around the blog.  I know it came from someone mistaking Oblivian for Bolivian, but does anyone have the link the the actual thread where this started?  Just curious

12/12/2013 - 11:47am Considering BCS payouts?

Absolutely.  The value that he has brought to the university from his 3 titles more than justifies a much higher salary.

12/11/2013 - 4:19pm So, a net decrease of 100 votes?

META Like this!

12/11/2013 - 4:18pm YES!

12/11/2013 - 4:10pm WOOO

VOTING WUT WUT!

11/21/2013 - 3:46pm DJ

DJ Khaled!?

10/14/2013 - 10:40pm change the title

not informative. change it before the rest of the board hammers you

10/01/2013 - 9:00am Super bowl

Yeah, maybe they'll make a super bowl or something. Wouldn't that be crazy?!

08/10/2013 - 7:35pm Fred jackson

did fred Jackson ghost-write those tweets?

08/07/2013 - 5:55pm Not good news for NCAA

It's not so much that it's not good news for those involved.  While it is technically against NCAA rules, if this goes as deep as it seems on the surface, the NCAA would lose all credibility if they banished all of these players.  

This is the same NCAA that generates revenue from selling jerseys and the like with players' numbers on them.  To then go and tell the players they can't sell their own signature because it violates amateurism rules is pure hypicrosy.  The NCAA is going down if this goes beyond Manziel.  I'm not saying it's OK to do something against the rules; it's not.  But you are essentially allowing the NCAA to take revenue that would otherwise go to the players.  Exploitation at its finest, imo.

08/05/2013 - 5:34pm I just watched this movie yesterday

I just watched Billy Madison yesterday for about half an hour, and this scene was in there.   Chris Farley is the man.  It's a very underrated comedy.  I was really surprised that comcast only gave it 1*.  It's at least 2.5* in my book.

08/01/2013 - 5:26pm No

07/31/2013 - 3:29pm No kickoffs

I think that within the next 5-8 years, we'll see kickoffs removed entirely from all NFL games.  When you have 22 massive people running full speed at each other from across the field, injuries are far worse than at the line of scrimmage.  One of many changes I can see the NFL considering to make the game safer. 

07/30/2013 - 2:22pm Sounds a lot like Hernandez

A story came out about Hernandez punching a bartender while at UF, and not having charges pressed against him.  Could this be another case of the Urbz "requesting" silence from the victim?! 

07/29/2013 - 5:11pm Worst camera angle ever?

Worst camera angle ever? If you compare the OP's pic to the vine video, it's pretty clear that is just an awful angle.

07/29/2013 - 4:39pm F5

F5...F5...F5...F5

07/28/2013 - 10:29pm swole

One of my coworkers says swole all the time, like "are you going to the gym to get swole?" Every time he says it I want to punch him in the face.

07/25/2013 - 4:39pm Great idea

I really like this idea, and I might pledge $65 just so I can get the personalized voicemail.  I think that's a hilarious reward.

07/25/2013 - 4:35pm Plane Tracker

Reminds me of when we were doing our coaching search.  "OMG THE PLANE IS IN PALO ALTO WE ARE HIRING JIM HARBAUGH"

07/25/2013 - 3:32pm Surely this relates to Aaron Hernandez

As has been pointed out, this most likely stems from the Hernandez thing, but has anyone actually said that Hernandez has tattoos that indicate gang affiliation?  This is a serious question, not a rhetorical one.  I'm geniunely curious.

07/25/2013 - 3:30pm Touche'

I wish I had enough points to up-vote your comment.  An excellent point.

07/25/2013 - 10:56am 6-pointed star

Interestingly, the symbol for the Gangster's Disciples in Chicago is a 6-pointed star.  So, what if one of these Buckeye 'experts' thought someone was in the GDs, but they were actually Jewish?  Highly improbable, yes, but something to consider nonetheless.  Don't ask me why I know these things.  I'm embarrassed about all of the hours i've spent watching gang documentaries on the history channel

07/24/2013 - 9:58am No

NOOOOOOOO

07/24/2013 - 9:57am Will Tacopants be featured

Will Tacopants be prominently featured in the offense?

07/22/2013 - 4:39pm Maybe Terrelle Pryor was right

Maybe TP was right, that everyone (at OSU anyway) really does kill people, murder people, steal from me, steal from you.

07/19/2013 - 10:55am Friday

Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday

07/19/2013 - 10:54am US Bank

I would hate to be US Bank right now.  Of the top 20 creditors, all but 3 are US Bank-held funds.  Ruh roh

07/18/2013 - 4:06pm Florida?

How is Florida #1?  We dominated their frontcourt last year.  Patric Young is mediocre and the rest (Casey Prather and Will Yuguette) are just atheltic but with no real skill.  Maybe I'll concede on Yuguette being OK, but how they are #1 is beyond me...

07/16/2013 - 12:27pm Ball Handlers

While having Trey definitely helped, it was more the fact that everyone on our team was an excellent ball handler.  Don't think that changes much with this year's squad.

07/16/2013 - 11:43am We can't be the Havoc

Remember the 3rd round last year?  That HAVOC defense totally dominated us!! We only beat VCU by 25!

07/15/2013 - 2:53pm 47 Days

While I love this kind of thread (kinda a science nerd), I can't wait until the blog is talking about Michigan sports once again.  Only 47 days...

07/15/2013 - 1:35pm SEC Chant

Surprised the second guy didn't start chanting 'SEC' at the end

07/15/2013 - 1:34pm Mind. Blown.

*Mind. Blown*

07/14/2013 - 3:04pm Verlander still second to none

Despite his struggles this year, people forget that JV could go on the mound any day and throw that thing-that-shall-not-be-named (avoiding the jinx here).  He's still in a class by himself, and I think we'll be talking about him with the likes of Nolan Ryan by the time his career is over.

07/14/2013 - 2:55pm Hate to be that guy

Hate to be that guy, but it's 'dominant', not dominate.

07/11/2013 - 4:10pm Not discounting your implication

And no, I'm not discounting what you said, I'm just curious.

07/11/2013 - 4:09pm Across what statistical categories?

Comparable stats could mean a lot of things...

07/11/2013 - 3:06pm Chris Davis falling off

Miguel Cabrera is on a tear, and seemingly won't be stopping any time soon.  Meanwhile, Chris Davis, who everyone couldn't stop talking about, is no longer in the top 5 for BA and is 0 for his last 14, and 1 for his last 24.  Cabrera is just that much better than everyone else, plain and simple

07/11/2013 - 3:02pm Rolling on Shabbos

Technically, no one can be Walter because all B1G teams roll on Shabbos

10/26/2010 - 1:31pm When you are on top

Everyone tries to beat you down and throw you under the bus.   The underdogs are always given the benefit of the doubt, no matter how unfathomable their actions.  Given all of the criminal activity in which MSU athletes have been involved in the last couple of years, you would think this would get more national attention.  But, alas, everyone wants to see them topple Michigan, no matter the consequences

10/26/2010 - 1:27pm It makes me want to puke

Everytime I see Matt Millen's face, the only thing I can think of is 0-16.  And him together with by far his worst pick as a GM sort of epitomizes the Detroit Lions of the last 10 years.
