Business Casual. What the fuck does this mean?
Now let me specify that this was in regards to a rehearsal dinner, not work. Maybe I'm just a super hipster, but it's 2014 and I don't see the gotdamn difference in khakis and jeans, especially outside of a work setting. Somebody tell me I'm right about this.
Also, as far as weddings go, what is an acceptable amount to make your groomsmen pay to rent a tux. Myself and a couple commenters are dropping $200 plus for a suit we have to return the next day. Seems like an outrageous waste of money to me. What say you?
This Was Michigan. I feel like I need to drop some bombs on Michigan just to let my thoughts be known. As the resident intelligent Michigan fan it's the right thing to do.
First, Brady Hoke needs to be fired right fucking now. Ideally I would want Dave Brandon and Hoke to go at the same time, but I feel like getting Brandon out is going to take some time. Hoke can get fired tomorrow and it won't take a whole bunch of bullshit from the regents or the president. Just get him out.
And even if we take the entire Shane Morris Concussion issue out of this, Hoke still deserves to go. If you watched that game on Saturday you noticed that Shane Morris had absolutely no business being on that field. Most Michigan fans knew this going in, but now everybody knows because it was obvious after three series. The fact that Morris stayed in that game into the 4th quarter is absurd. Even if he wasn't hobbling around on a busted ankle, he didn't belong out there. Hoke just doesn't get it, and I'm not sure he ever has. Put that imbecile out of his misery and fire him.
As far as Dave Brandon goes, what is the one thing you expect out of an athletic director? Leadership. You are the big swinging dick of the athletic department, and that's what you signed up to be, you don't get to hide during a PR nightmare only to emerge in a 1AM press release over 48 hours after the fact. You don't get paid 900k to pass the buck to our hamfisted coach as he makes a mockery of one of the most prestigious Universities and football programs ever. Even before this giant clusterfuck he was the embodiment of everything that is wrong with college athletics. Raising prices, alienating average fans, selling your soul for corporate advertising and valuing the bottom line above all. GET THE FUCK OUT.
I didn't go to Michigan, but I've always felt some pride in the way that Michigan went about their business. Since 2007, Michigan has felt more like every other program with every passing year. Guys like Dave Brandon are the reason for that. It's time for Michigan to get back to being a program to be proud of. And if it takes petitions, rallies, and boycotts then I am all for it. We've already crashed and burned. It's time for the next chapter.
Rank 'em. Thursdays are days that we #EmbraceDebate! Quick, who are your Top 4 NFL teams from each conference?
Seattle Seahawks. Defending Champs. Top rushing offense. Top rushing defense. A quarterback that gets it. That's the blueprint for another ring.
Detroit Lions. I'm ready to buy into the hype. They only thing that worries me is their inability to run the ball. They have some time to figure that out and I think they will. Everything else is in place. Lions fans should be expecting 12-4 this year.
Dallas Cowboys. Highest point differential in the NFC. FINALLY having some balance on offense to take pressure from anti-clutch Romo. I said Monday that I don't trust them for the long haul because eventually I expect the head coach, quarterback and owner to do exactly what they have done the last 3 years; be mediocre and go 8-8. Time shall tell.
Philadelphia Eagles. That fucking defense is horrid, but I think Chip will keep us in every game. We have two easy games coming up and then a bye. That should allow some time for the offensive line to get healthy and get ready for the home stretch.
Arizona Cardinals. It's hard for me to believe in a team with Stanton/Palmer quarterbacking...but here I am. The defense is legit. They get production from their no name skill players. We will see how they handle Denver first before considering then a real contender.
Denver Broncos. Pey Pey is still running the AFC.
San Diego Chargers. This team is legit, even without their top 2 RB's. Marmalard is getting it done on offense and the defense is a top 10 unit.
Cincinnati Bengals. We know who the Bengals are. It's time they prove themselves in the post-season and Dalton lives up to that contract. I love Gio Bernard, too.
Kansas City Chiefs. I'm buying into Andy Reid. He was ass the last few years in Philly, but he's still one of the best coaches in the league. And Charles looked to be back to his old self Monday. That division is brutal, but I think they can get a wild card spot.
Baltimore Ravens. I don't fully trust this team, but they have been winning the games they are supposed to. 4 of their next 5 are on the road so we will see if Baltimore is legit.
