does it mean anything if you're the first to comment on a live blog?
Despite not being part of the chat, I would like to say that it is really cool. and for anyone who is trying to read the older part of the chats, there is a button to turn off auto scrolling at the bottom.
Now let's just get us a qb and we are ready for the season.
One note on Marcus Hall (mentioned early in the chat): Aside from one dubious Sporting News blog entry (which I would trust less than ESPN, so less than zero), where has he said Michigan is eliminated? Yeah yeah, Glenville, OSU lock, etc...I agree with THAT, but has a reputable source reported that UM is officially out?
So basically no news from the "live practice"?
Rodriguez did say they moved John Ferrara to OL. Other than that, no.
The BTN is talking about the loss of J. Lehman right now. Awesome.
Today we are all Illini.
Dear Mgoblog forum,
I never thought this would happen, but I was proven wrong...Okay, I live in Boston and I have Comcast. If I have any hope of getting BTN, it's if Comcast decides to make it available nationwide next year, right? (I could be wrong.) Well, I was flipping through the channels the other day, and I couldn't believe my eyes when I came across Big 10 Network on channel 285! I'm serious. I still can't believe it and I think that it's a mistake and that Comcast will take it away. Still, I got to DVR the practice, so I'll definitely watch that when I can. Do other people get BTN outside the Midwest?
As far as I understand it, the BTN is for all Comcast subscribers everywhere, so they probably won't pull it
I do. It's up in the sports tier channels (257) but I get it. Although it's not HD, but I can live with that.
I had BTN the night before the official Comcast launch. The next day, it was gone. I called the local Comcast office and they said it was a teaser. I had to pay $5 a month for BTN and host of other sports networks. They may be trying to gauge public interest in BTN in Boston. However, I would call Comcast and see what their plan for BTN is this year. Also, when I lived in Boston, Comcast was great. They just may be as awesome as they were for me. So enjoy the perk, if it really is.
Sorry I had to miss the practice chat. Any issues with the interface, etc.?
1) I got the impression that RR was saying that Ferrara has potential to start down the road, not that he will be a starter off the bat;
2) David Moosman looks like the John Candy Stan Shmenge character from the old SCTV show;
3) Branstatter was great and great reference by the BTN guy to the demise of Michigan Replay;
4) practice did not seem as speedy or helter skelter as I had imagined; there was still a fair amount of standing around in the position drill portion.
5) the Lloyd tour of Angell Hall was hilarious; he was like an old friendly ghost just floating around, wandering into classrooms. High comedy.
6) I think one of the McGuffie tats was a superman "S." Perhaps he and Shaq get their ink from the same artist.
Given that Ferrara was the primary depth at defensive tackle, is this also a tacit endorsement of Mike Martin? Or the development of the ginormous Jason Kates? Or both?
