If I'm sitting in a cafeteria or student union and some guy started yelling that, I'd crown him king of all douchebags.

Harbaugh. The way he proclaimed he wouldn't have a domestic abuser on his roster a few days before McDonald was arrested (still on roster, 2 weeks later) screams Michigan Man- all form and no substance.  Plus he buys $10 khakis from Walmart- thats too perfect.

I shall name that hamster Joey Chestnut II for the way he worked Kobayashi...

Can I rant here?  Cool thanks.  This is going to sound like an anti-Yuengling diatribe, and I suppose it is...

So, Saturday,  the wife and I met up with my cousin to check out the Cuyahoga Falls Oktoberfest, and it was ok, not a lot of culture to be had.  When it came time to imbibe, the choices were Spaten Oktoberfest and three different kinds of Yuengling, which sponsored the event.  Got the Spaden, and it was pretty decent.  My issue is with Yuengling, which is about as German as Bud, which is to say not at all past a vaguelyTeutonic-sounding name. I get that the brewery has been around forever,  and they're pushing their products out throughout the Midwest,  et cetera; but christ, you mean to tell me I can't have a Warsteiner or even a damn Beck's because some generic American macrobrew wanted to  come as close to monopolizing the choices as possible?

I'm of irish ancestry (hence the temper), and if I were to attend the Cuyahoga County Irish Festival and find that I can't have a Smithwick's or Guinness because Coors/Killians is the sponsor, I'd spontaneously combust.

If she posted here, Hove, Meech, and the rest could kiss goodbye to the most helmet stickers contest...

Yep- fat lady done sang on this one.

Article I read said max 15 yrs on the robbery, max 10 on the assault.   Obviously, he won't do anywhere near that, but illustrates the gravity of the charges.  We all saw the brawl he started in the handshake line, but apparently there was at least one other on-field incident (sucker punch) as well.  I'm all for"poor kid, needs guidance,  rough upbringing,  etc" in most cases, but not here.  He needs some time in the slam.

Edit- Sparty divested themselves of this guy months ago, and I think he was looking at some directional Michigans since, but now it'll be the prison GED program for him.

ULM is one of those sneaky decent teams lately... I remember them beating the Razorberts two years ago, before Bielema...

This pic is horrifically inappropriate, yet, I smiled a tiny, tiny bit.  Rutgers embracing the new rivalry.

Michigan's announced was 102k, with many apparently dressing up as empty upper level seats in a pre-Halloween show of mischief

Regardless, these games against teams like KSU really need to end.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

One thing the SEC doesn't have that the B1G does is academic standards.  Obviously, football players are treated differently everywhere, and for the most part big time programs are going after the same kids, but if I'm a 5* and functionally illiterate, I'm gravitating towards a less rigorous academic institution (or, I'm going to Michigan to be a general studies major).

That Gerbil Peppers guy must have papier mache joints.  

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Sounds like the kind of guy that if a police officer just follows him around for a day, he'll hit his monthly arrest quota by lunch.

(I'm sure the girlfriend assault happened before his recent lockup, but still, he's a productive cat).

Pic of the wounds up on deadspin, along with statements the 4 yr old made.  AP went too far- there's broken skin and injuries to places where a child should never be struck.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

I wouldn't bet on Ohio State being immune to this phenomenon for long.  Florida A&M (I know, the band was supposed to come), Kent State, Hawaii and some DIrectional Michigan next year, etc.  Are those games that are really worth full price?

Comment 12 Sep 2014

I read somewhere else, linked here probably, that pig-nosed Arky fans absolutely love Bielema.  That ship sailed last week for Hoke (what, with the true fans under-the-bus-throwing he did), and it was really the best thing he had going.

Don't underestimate the cult of personality.
