  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

    You Already put Your $450 Where Your Mouth is, Schostak

    It never ceases to delight me with the schadenfreude that the MI-GOP rubes bury themselves in, with their chosen duplicitous chair Boobie ShowStak, having a hot air case of the fantods about an uncreative commie bleating his DNC talking points on MSU's campus.

    Continued below.

    Was that the investment by the Michigan GOP for the University board and Michigan Board of Education candidates?

    Is it surprising that we lost the 8 seats while at the same time maintaining control of the state house?  Those state wide races needed the Michigan GOP to step up, but there wasn't any pretense of help or assistance.

    Tim Bos (letter below the fold) puts it best.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Sparty Tears Taste Like Sugar

    That sign in the stands last night.

    The obvious taunt to the MSU fan who wishes it could have been State at the Sugar bowl instead of the the wolverines was written crudely on the pink cardboard sheets and held up proudly as the U of M team played the toughest game of its season.

    A game by the way, which for some, may likely have had divine interference.  I am not one who believes God has intervening interest in sporting contests, but to watch the Sugar Bowl, it wouldn't be hard to conclude the scores were backward most of the game.  All the stats were in Virginia Tech's favor, and the Michigan offensive line was seemingly crippled by a stacked defense.  But somehow, the outcome of the game was cast in overtime and decided in Michigan's favor 23-20. Many will conclude it was a strange event.

    Prestidigitation, illusion, sleight of hand.  All terms that might be appropriately used in describing the end of a contest where the the visual, the virtual, defied the reality.


    Some bad juju unfortunately for V tech, who had its kicking team decimated prior to the first snap with a home invasion charge on its top dog kicker, and a curfew violation sending home the second best. (Or vice versa)  The end result? A player with only a single successful kick last year, becoming a hero and showing three successful attempts for the first three VT scores. In the end however, only to fall in OT with a missed "easy" kick.  No one heard the angel blow the ball to the right, so it must have been the wind .. in that enclosed arena.

    No matter.  It happened. And the Wolverines in a game that was as sweet as its designation, prevailed.

    And MSU?

    Somehow, I doubt their triple OT win over Georgia is any less so (sweet).  For them it might well be quite Splendid. Or at the very least, Splenda.

    Michigan over Ohio

    A first rate job by the Wolverines, and a great finish to the regular season with the Michigan title 9 sustaining football program jazzing the Ohio State Buckeyes 40-34.

    Dang, that was a heart pounder!

    Now, I want those officials hogtied.  Some of the poorest officiating in the big house I have seen, and it seemed to be one sided in Ohio's favor.  If they keep that up, the women's lacross team will have to be funded by reducing Mary Sue Coleman's car allowance.

    And from the OFF THE RADAR file

    We have students unionizing at U of M.

    The University of Michigan's Mary Sue Coleman now reaps the sowing, as the regents' meeting at a Dearborn locale brought about the now possible unionization of graduate student researchers. Coleman opposed the move, yet the regents voted to allow it with a 6-2 vote.

    As the infestation of labor expands into the student part of a government subsidized and over fed organization like the University of Michigan, it should be noted that the two dissenting votes were the only voices of reason available.  A release last night from the Republican party of Michigan reads:

    LANSING - Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak praised Republican-nominated University of Michigan Regents Andrea Fischer Newman and Andrew C. Richner today for their recent votes opposing a resolution to allow the school's graduate researchers to unionize.

    "Our regents voted with the majority of Michigan's citizens who do not want to add more costs to our universities without deriving any discernable benefit," Schostak said. "Unfortunately, the majority of Regents voted out of step with taxpayers' desire that our universities be more fiscally responsible."

    The board voted on the question without it previously being on the agenda - thwarting any chance to properly consider other points of view or examine and discuss the long-term impact of the decision.

    "The board should reconsider its decision, reverse itself, and then allow for this issue to get a more thorough examination through a democratic process," Schostak said. "The university should be run for the benefit of the students and other stakeholders, not to fatten the wallet of some union boss."

    That third paragraph is the ringer.  This was not on the agenda for the May 19, 2011 meeting in Dearborn.

    Classic progressives and their tactics. Wonderful.
