We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Ive yet to see you counter my "faulty argument". Im havnt said anything that isnt a straight fact, minus the city is a straight dump which is an opinion of almost everyone that visits there.

It is in need of some big help. It's not perfect and the elected leaders, school board members and school officials have stolen from is for years. NAFTA didn't help and the UAW might have got a bit to strong. People had to leave. The city now has way too many square feet to deal with and needs to turn the outlying abandoned homes into fields and farms. Some outline blocks have one family living in a two block radious with all the other home abandoned.
All true and it sucks. But it is fixable and it can happen. It's frustrating, but we can do this bit by bit. You can't give up on Detroit. It reminds me of my 64 thunderbird. It looked horrible 15 years ago, but bit by bit it was restored and now I'm pretty happy with it. It takes time.
We need public transit becuase that brings people downtown. Look at Chicago, NY, Philadelphia, Seattle etc.
We are college football
Flint is horrible. Judging by the FL in your name you are from Florida so you know horrible. Every screwed up crime that ever happens seems like its in Florida. Why does Michigan get such a bad reputation when we have a state that has people eating faces, killing their parents and throwing parties after and shooting door to door salesmen? I know them salesmen are annoying but come on.
Yep. And this is where the city and sub's need to work together.
This is why St. Louis is such a problem. There has been constant pushback from the county (all the suburbs) whenever anyone suggests extending the Metro transit lines. The suburbs are actively fighting the city pretty much incessantly.
Michigan and Ohio, where muscle cars go to die.
A six-year old in Detroit just hanged himself in his closet with his belt. Heartbreaking. Florida sucks too, no doubt, but let's not pretend that terrible shit happens everywhere. The only difference is that we're the ones who always have to defend ourselves.
I debunked your population "straight fact" obtained from Wikipedia and showed how you misused it in the present. I put parameters on your opinions on what makes a great city. Everyone who visits me in detroit leaves a huge enthusiast. You'd be no different. Come up during football season and I'll show you. No shitting. Pm me. 100% guarantee I will turn you around on the city.
Ya the US Census is where i obtained that information. Again, if having your lowest population since 1910 is a win for you than thats awesome. I go to Detroit once a quarter for work. I go out and party and have a pretty good time. I could have a good time going out drinking in Somalia thought. Dude you can defend it all you want but the city is a total dump. Saying my info comes from Wikipedia doesn't make it true, this is from the US census, USA Today and New York times. No major city has ever been in the state Detroit is in and thats a fact. Whats going on with this.... (Honest Question)
UPDATE: A lawsuit filed by Detroit city attorney Krystal Crittendon was struck down by an Ingham County, Mich., judge Wednesday morning. The suit, which challenged the validity of a consent agreement between the city and state and charged that Detroit was owed $220 million in revenue sharing by Mich...
Dont be jealous cause all the fun stuff and t-backs are in Florida. Oh and until MSU or Michigan hires a black head coach...they are racist.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
MSU had a black head coach, Bobby Williams. 2000-2003ish
Thanks For the info, MSU is no longer racist but Michigan? Still racist
We had a black DC.
MSU had a black president before the south allowed African Americans into school. Bobby Williams was our head coac and is currently a big reason Alabama is doing well. Michigan had two black head basketball coaches.
UofM allowed black players on the football team 26 years before MSU did.
IMO, this is a stupid argument to have. Both schools were ahead of the curve with civil rights.

Fine neither one is racist. It was a joke.
Although I'm starting to think MSU and UofM fans hate whites from the south...so again racist. And don't even try to tell me you have white southern friends or that your married to a southern white woman with half Yankee half cracker kids!
We don't hate southerners. We hate racists which mostly happen to be in the south as evident by this board's response to the petition.
I think JC's thread was very clear on the race issue threads...
