"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."
So, I am sitting around watching the 2008 Michigan vs Wisconson game last night on the Rotel Netword. I mean, the Barbasol Network--you know what I mean--and it hit me. The 2008 Michigan offense is at least one of the worst offenses Michigan has ever fielded. Those boys were like a one legged man at a butt kicking contest. They tried their level best and left everything on the field, but the results were painfully unspectacular to say the least.
So, how did these guys pull off the greatest comeback in Michigan Football History?
Yes, it is a rhetorical question.
During this great dearth of football news I thought it might be kind of fun to start a thread that lists the many great ironies, enigmas, anecdotes and oddities that Michigan has experienced through the years. The Brain Cook, being the engineer talking guy that he is, likes numbers and charts and graphs and stuff and so do many of you, but I like stories. They are far more entertaining. So, I thought I would throw this out there to all of you and see what kind of accumulation we could get. Call it light reading if you will.
Anyway, with all the people who visit this site and all their accumulated years of U of M fandom, we should be able to put up a sizable list.
Ready, set, go!
This is a plea to all mgoblog users. Please stop discussing and posting about the Rosenberg article. Let it die. Just stop. Nancy Reagan was right--just say no!
Seriously, it has been beat to death already and we don't need to address that subject any more.
It is called 'extinction' in therapy. Ignore it and it will eventually go away.
JUST STOP NOW!
