- Hardly any replays
- Pore-o-vision all the time. On passes they zoomed in on the ball in flight.
- The interview with Miles was bad enough, but made worse by the fact that they didn't give him working headphones and didn't correct the problem.
- The commentary was dominated by playoff scenario discussions, with very little info or insight on the game at hand.

That makes sense.
|6 days 3 hours ago||Have heard this, but||
Don't the chains need to be tip to tip? Meaning if they put the ball square on the 25 to start, then the nose of the ball is already past it? Or do they put the tip of the ball on the 25? If it's square, then the tip-to-first-down is actually just inside the 15. Anyone know?

I was thinking about this question last night, and this was the first game to come to mind. I couldn't think of any others...

Loved the Lloyd chatter to start the show.
I was lucky enough to meet/interview Carr in 2008, and during the conversation he recalled not just the name, but also the personality of the football coach at my high school in suburban Chicago. The dude had retired in 1991.

I hadn't seen that one before. Very well put together.

That ESPN broadcast was horrendous all the way through:
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Some advice||
I once went to a record store in Iowa city that occupied the upstairs apartment of an old house. On the bannister leading up the stairs someone had left a neatly formed scoop of spaghetti bolognese.
Don't touch it.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Ohhhhhh||
That was a frustrating game.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
Totally agree with you, MA. The season is definitely in hold serve mode as we gear up to to a one-game regular season at OSU. Whatever the final SOS holds won't be revelant unless Michigan is trying to get in the back door after a loss in Columbus. But let's not worry about that for now.
My comment was more about the fact that the team has not been tested on the road, and hasn't performed well on the road the last few years. So that simply makes me nervous until proven otherwise. Iowa will be the best indicator thus far, but still nothing compared to The Game. Can't wait!!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Probably something else||
Brian and Ace both mentioned that his FG warmups looked lousy before the games when he struggled.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Well done, BB!||
Had my daughter's third birthday party on Saturday as well. These kiddos have a ton of energy! Happy to have that behind us, but no way could I have found the energy to sit down and write something, especially after another "ho-hum" blowout of an inferior opponent. Once again, kudos to you!
Some national reporters are (accurately) noting that Michigan's road schedule thus far has not exactly been a strenuous one. Iowa will certainly be the hardest road test of the season in advance of OSU. So I do hope that they bring their best game and challenge the team. I still feel a bit snakebit after how awful the Hoke teams performed away from home. And the Minnesota and Indiana games from last year reinforced the old concerns.
But it is a new year, so stomping Herkey in prime time will be the biggest indicator thus far that the team is becoming prepared for The Game.

...is when after all that, Wasserman sums up the video by saying "Ohio State won."
|5 weeks 2 hours ago||Absolutely, but||
It did cost him a sure TFL for those who obsess about that stat in particular. But this is like complaining about Lewis' pick vs Wisconsin.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Same||
My mind went to Najee Harris immediately. And once I figured out what was going on I was greatly relieved...
Time to quit drinking and go to bed.

Check out Saturday's America - the most revered college football book of all time. Worth the read.

It's Angelo Moore
Not his fault that he shared the spotlight with his bandmates.

Take all your M stuff off or you might get the STAEE treatment.
Do that and you should be good to go.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Nice Things||
Thanks as always for these, bronxblue. Love coming here to see your take each week.
My how our standards have changed. The fact that we can hear "we can't have nice things" after a 78-0 victory is telling!
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Along those lines... hope for Newsome?||
If I understand correctly, the determination on a medical redshirt is the % of season that a player has participated in. Clark played in 4 / 12 games and theoretically has the possibility of applying for this.
Not to get ahead of ourselves, but if Michigan wins the division, then the conference title game, makes the playoff and wins the semifinal, that would mean 15 games played in the season. Newsome would have appeard in 5 / 15 which is the same ratio as Clark. Does anyone know if this longshot hope would get him another year?
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Also||
It made your avatar sideways. Tough all over these days...
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Worst: Speight||
No Worst for Wilt? He was off all game. Even on TV it was clear that he was missing on which receivers were open. e.g. the pick was thrown into quadruple coverage. How does that happen? A better option had to be available.
Worst also: Newsome's injury.
Re TV timeouts: It would be great if someone wiith a DVR of this game can count the gametime vs ad time here. I don't even mean the portion with running plays. Just how much they were broadcasting. A total joke. At least the NFL has safegaurds in place to make sure this doesn't happen (limiting the total # of breaks in a game). I know getting that negotiated for NCAA games would be tough, but it's brutal for the people in the stands and the players. Also irritating for those at home.

And a lot of Bearcats in the office. But like half of the employees (he has a team of around 70 people), are Buckeye fans.

Bet a UW grad from work. Loser has to change his e-mail profile image to the winner's logo. I told him that's a bad bet for him because he surely hates Michigan more than I hate Wisconsin. (Though I guess that would change with a Michigan loss.) But he said, "Nah, I live in Cincinnati. It would be fun to piss off the locals."
|9 weeks 2 days ago||I get what you're saying||
Before every play I'm looking to see where he is and often watching him isntead of the ball. (Probably like the opposing OC.) And really, watching him is just as good because it's very likely he and the ball will meet in short order.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||8 teams?||
Before you label us all with your broad myopia brush, many of us prefer 4 or 6, and based on the comments in this section alone, nobody seems to be saying 8 is a good idea. It's been only three seasons (thus far extremely successeful). Let's see how this verison works out before we assume all are with in line with the concept of fundamentally changing the sport.
