Football Display Case
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
Sunday may not be a regular "drinking thread" night, but after todays events I think we could all use a nice beer or three to numb the wounds.
I am enjoying a Crooked Tree IPA and will follow that up with a 60 minute IPA. Cheers.
As I mentioned. Forget Xs and Os. We just gotta be dawgs. We're better than anyone we'll play. Just gotta let em know
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
Let's leave the dawgs thing to MSU.

actually, I think izzo's biggest weakness is that he doesn't let is players play. What I like about Belein is he seems to let he players play.
The original thought is right; playcalling matters but sometimes you just gotta trust the athleticism and let the dawgs out like it's 1996
We are the dead.
Will trade a loss to Ohio today for a big ten title. Will trade Lewan coming back for Webb not coming at all. Gained an O-line Commit. Still have a great shot for the #1 back in his class. Its time for a Champagne of Beers.
I wasn't feeling bad, I thought that perhaps I should feel guilty. I did have a New Belgian Snow Day, but only because they taste good, not because I needed to drown anything.
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
waiting until I can take some more hydrocodone in an hour or two. Also about to eat some pulled pork, coleslaw, spicy pickles, baked beans and potato salad. I'll probably switch to Dr. Pepper for dinner.

I tore a piece of my lateral meniscus in my left knee the night before the Nebraska (football) game, and finally got it fixed on Friday.
Thankfully it seems like I'll only be on these pills for a few more days, then I can start getting back to working out and walking normally (and beer, of course).
Funny my dad is tougher than your dad story. My father had some cartilage cleaned up in his knee recently and I was asking him how it felt. He goes on to tell me that he doesn't have an ACL in either knee because injuries sustained in an old timers football game 35 yrs ago when high schools still has those. I asked him why he never looked into getting them fixed and he said," I had to work." I was floored
It's weird to me that people can have those not intact and still be pretty much fine. Maybe I'm just squeamish when it comes to medical stuff, but thinking about having an unhealed tendon tear in both knees just sicks me out.
Coffee. Can't do anything but study until finals are done next Friday. Lame.
Michigan: 903–315–36 (Best in NCAA)

Where do you go to university that has finals in mid-to-late January?
I love Greg Mattison
Rosalind Franklin University, near Chicago. I'm a medical student, and our classes don't always end at the end of a "quarter", though our next quarter does end in four weeks. Two classes end this week, so I've got two cumulative finals looming.
I graduated med school from there last year. Finals were brutal, but the MD at the end is definitely worth it.
I always thought that if we had a sports team, the fighting helices would be the best mascot ever
"The choice is yours, and yours alone." -Olmec
so I am cooking up some Mexican-themed venison chili. Will probably eat that with a Pino Grigio from California. Then it is Calculus and a Molson Canadian if I am feeling lucky.
Faith not shaken. Go Blue forever.
Hope for the future though
So Michigan loses in the Outback Bowl to an SEC team with their second year coach, ending a disappointing season with 8 wins. Denver looks like a Super Bowl team with home field advantage, a second year coach and a stellar 36 year old qb only to lose by 3 in the divisional round. What year does this happen?
1996 and 2012
The next year - 1997 - Michigan wins the national championship and Denver wins the Super Bowl. Coincidence, I think not.
Also I'm drinking Sweet tea today
Just an fyi, everyone in Indy is a Bronco fan!
And am certainly not a broncos fan.
Coach Hoke once told me that a moral victory is still a (expletive deleted) loss.
Our football team is on the right track and we don't lose to teams like Toledo anymore. Oh and our basketball team is top 5, it has been worse for us in both sports.
Thats how I roll!
I may be alone on this but I feel pretty good about winning the Big Ten after today. Drinking milk btw
The better news: There's still two (three? :D) months of basketball left
I was all bummed. But then I remembered I have alcohol. I will be happy now, and bummed tomorrow morining.
Florida Wolverines have dreadlocks...
I am enjoying a Samuel Adams Alpine Spring after a dinner which involved marinated tip steaks, white asparagus and roasted red potatoes. It was quite delicious and definitely helped brighten the mood (I made it, so I am in no way biased). As for today, any loss to Ohio State stings, but I will definitely take 16-1 with 14 games left and none in which we cannot compete - it's an excellent problem to have.

Drinking your own blood is the paradigm of recycling.
State is up on nebraska by only 3 with 5 to go
I was pretty bummed, as well. In fact, irate.
Then I remembered that Michigan is a Top 20 academic institution and Ohio St is the equivalent to a regional trucking school.
It will always be great to be a Michigan Wolverine.
Now back to the boozin'!
Screw the browneyes
well, atleast womens basketball beat wisconsin.
To make things worse I've got firecracker shits from the Szechuan chicken I ordered earlier. General tso wouldn't have done me like this. I'm sorry I cheated on you general.
Bears Beets Battlestar Galactica
this is pretty much unrelated but did anyone else notice how well spike albrecht played? he had 7 points and was very poised.
Hopefully a solid four year player that keeps some consistency at guard
I have missed Hopslam...biter, biting, ten percent...delicious Hopslam
My favorite beer ever. It's one of the things I miss most about Michigan. I'm thinking about stopping home on a road trip to buy a couple of cases.
"And when we play as a team, when the old season is over, you and I know, it's gonna be Michigan again, Michigan."
Sadly, Hopslam seems to be all but gone. My local beer place sold out in less than 48 hours. I've checked around to a few other places and it seems I am too late.
That reminds me. Beer Baron, I'll see you tomorrow. Please have it in stock.
Shot and a beer at the Denver Airport. Missed the 2nd playoff game but I guess I didn't miss much. Anyone want to make some guesses for the Super Bowl? I think it is going to be 49ers-Ravens in a Harbaugh-off, with Jim getting the best of John 34-24.
Nobody goes undefeated anymore. This loss takes a lot of pressure off, and introduced the freshmen to rivalry games, Big Ten style. Now, they won't get blindsided when they play Sparty. JB gets to do a lot of teaching, and gets to adjust to what appeared to be some pretty good tweaks by Ohio.
Besides, after all of Ohio's histrionics, Michigan nearly pulled this game out. They are already adjusting to Ohio's adjustments. This team will be there when it counts.
Good point and all, but what are you drinking??
Brady Hoke is going to visit Derrick Green tomorrow. No doubt a positive for us during the final push. I will take Green and Lewan's return over Webb and a 3-point, road, conference loss, to a ranked team any day. I wish we had more situations like this to "comiserate" over.
Never the less, I'm drinking an Iron City.
Dogfishhead Theobroma...one of their 'Ancient Ale' line where they do a reconstruction of ancient beers from chemical analysis of pottery shards. This is Aztec..chocolate with a bit of chiles.
9% ABV...perfect while watching Tom Brady going to the AFC Championship game again...
Nothing to be sad about in all reality. Have a Top-5 Men's basketball team who tied the best start in program history, and a Women's basketball team who is off to their best start in program history at 14-2 and 3-0 in B1G play.
Yes, that is a combined 30-3 for Michigan Basketball. That has never happened.
And some food for thought, that 1989 National Championship team lost 9 games (one of them to a D2 Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves team) and didn't win the B1G. But still won the one that mattered most.
With baseball, softball & lacrosse season less than a month away, it's about to get really fun.
Rice and Palin hooked up on that trip. True story.
I think you mean the year before when Michigan played up in Anchorage in the 1987 Great Alaska Shootout.
The game they lost to Alaska-Anchorage was the following year in the Utah Basketball Classic in Salt Lake City.
Maize and Blue Kool-Aid.
No drinks for me unfortunately, going to bed early since I'm pulling a 24 hr shift tomorrow. Went through a Shiner Bock variety six pack yesterday which was surprisingly delicious.
Drinking tap water. I was only able to watch the first ten minutes of so of the game, so I am buoyed by the way the young Michigan team was able to claw its way back from such a huge deficit in a hostile environment to a really good team.
Bookers neat. Also eating some homemade orange sorbet... It turned out more like Italian ice.
