The dolphin in Johnny Mnemonic was pretty bad.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Hoke||
Hoke's biggest mistake may have been not bringing Brian Sipe with him from SDSU. I think it would be easier to recruit QBs by telling them, "you get to learn from NFL QB Brian Sipe," as opposed to, "you get to run every trick play from Al Borges' playbook,"

Am I to assume that's every school that offered him?
|1 day 7 hours ago||taste||
I was in Taiwan for 2 weeks and I can attest to the fact that the food tasted much better over there. There was so much more flavor. I think the US farm factory practices have removed a lot of the natural flavors of foods. Yes, we can feed our people, but it's a bland existence.

I don't think they are thinking this through far enough. If Rutgers and Purdue leave, Indiana is doomed to be the doormat of the B1G for eternity.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Independents||
Texas, Notre Dame, and BYU should get together, encourage some other teams to join them, and form the Independent Conference. They can schedule games against each other, and at the end of the season, the two best independent teams can play each other to see who is the best independent team.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Special teams||
I think the ST were average last year, but compared to recent prior seasons, yeah, they looked badass. There's a good anecdote in the Mike Reinhold diary about Bo coaching special teams and the emphasis he put on them. I suspect Harbaugh learned that lesson well and we won't need to worry about the loss of Baxter. I hope.

ST2 was born in Pittsburgh, so I've always been partial to Pitt.
I have three monitors at work side-by-side-by-side. I pulled up PMS7406 and put it on all three at the same time. Each monitor showed a slightly different version of the color based on my monitor settings, I suppose. At this point, who knows? Let's just beat the snot out of everybody and worry about the proper shade of maize later.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Dieter Heren||
I may have told this story before, but it fits with this diary. My brother and I used to play a backyard field-goal kicking game. The object was to see who could make more kicks between two conveniently grown trees. To make it more interesting, the one not kicking was allowed to rush and try to block the kick. I always chose to be Dieter Heren when trying to block the kick. I can't tell you what kicker I was, but I was always Dieter Heren, probably because he has such a fun name to pronounce when you are excited about a kick getting blocked. I'll blame Ufer for that.
EDIT: apparently, Ufer died a couple years before Heren started playing at UofM. That doesn't matter. He's still the voice of Michigan Football to me. You should have heard him calling Denard's 87 yard TD run against ND. Sounded like that Dennis Bergkamp guy.

In Bo's book, "Bo's Lasting Lessons" he talks about an undersized nose guard. He preferred quick guys at the nose who could get into the backfield and disrupt plays (hence the line about being at a party you weren't invited to) to space-eaters who could absorb a double-team.

Sorry, but I just don't care about these stories about OSU. I find the whole thing kind of Boren.

MJ won 3 with Grant and three with Rodman. Pippen is the most overrated member of the 50 greatest NBA players. MJ carried him to those 6 titles.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Houston||
Houston is the 10th largest TV market in the US. I don't understand why the Big12 wouldn't want to add them. I guess your claim is that if they were legitimized by becoming a power 5 school they would attract more talent away from the rest of the Big12 schools. If that's the way they want to be, fine I guess, but I'd have more respect for the league if they had some better teams. Do you want to add a Rutgers or a Nebraska? Seems like a no-brainer to me.

|4 days 11 hours ago||Who is Mike Jones?||
That's the first MGo-ism that forced me to ask the Board for help. For years, I've encouraged my brother to join the site as a user instead of just being the occasional lurker. When I pressed him for a definitive answer as to why he wouldn't join, he basically blamed all the 'colloquialisms' (to use Hab's term) and said he didn't understand all the insider memes, etc. I've found the Board to be a friendly place that will answer your questions if you ask nicely. I never would have found out who Mike Jones is if I hadn't asked. One of these days I'm going to ask about McFarlin.
|5 days 6 hours ago||I don't||
I've tried really hard to be interested in UCLA since they are the closest team geographically to me that wasn't involved in the phantom touchdown, employed Pete Carroll, or is an acronym for university of spoiled children, but going to games there is just so boring. Yes, the Rose Bowl is beautiful, but it's like going to the beach or a nature walk. You enjoy the beauty of the place, but it's not terribly exciting.
I used to root for Northwestern when I was a kid because I liked rooting for the underdog and they were always the underdog, but since they've been good under Barnett and Fitz and another guy I'm forgetting about, I haven't cared as much about them.

I think "locked" is a misnomer because what they are actually doing is caving the entire thread. None of the replies are visible, at least with the browsers I'm using, so someone who missed all the activity has no idea why it got "locked."

I lived above Angelo's for a month. OMG, the smell of bread baking every morning was amazing.

You really want to compare Green's high school highlights to 16 minutes of A-Train's UofM highlights?

I'll just leave this here so sane people can make their own decision.

|1 week 2 days ago||Grant||
I went to UofM's basketball camp in '85. Frieder was still head coach, but Fisher was basically running the camp. Anyway, all us campers were sitting in Crisler Arena listening to Fisher lecture about something. Grant walked in and all eyes turned to him. He proceeded to demonstrate a few skills and then he went one-on-one with a few campers. Just destroyed them. He was The General.

|1 week 2 days ago||timeouts||
I coached youth basketball for four years. I think they gave us 2 timeouts per half. I definitely needed those to make adjustments and talk to the kids. There's only so much you can convey by yelling from the sideline. That said, if we are talking about college basketball, these guys should be able to take on more responsibility to figure things out on their own. In that sense, I'm very much in the Phil Jackson school of thought. Additionally, it doesn't make sense that you play one way for 38 minutes (limited direct involvement of the coach) and then for the final two minutes every play needs to be scripted and drawn up. I'm sorry, no coach is that intellectually gifted that he or she can come up with the greatest game-winning play on the spur of the moment. That stuff has to be worked on in practice and then you let the kids take over. Yes, you want everyone on the same page, but again, that should be done during your week of practice.
|1 week 2 days ago||Any given Wednesday||
They do tape the show, but I'm not sure how far in advance. But it's been known very early in the Bachelorette season that Jordan is Aaron's brother and Bill's wife is a huge bacheleror/ette fan so for him to not say anything suggests Aaron made that a contingency of the interview, which is really weird to me.
|1 week 2 days ago||Bill Simmons||
I was so disappointed with him last night. Two days after the Bachelorette episode where Rodgers' brother admits he never talks to him and hints at some issues Rodgers has, Simmons interviewed Rodgers on his any wednesday show. He didn't ask a single question about his brother being on the bachelorette. Now maybe this was a condition of the interview, but the old Simmons - the one who wrote lengthy treatise about 90210 and other pop culture subjects - would never have let that opportunity pass.

you'd still be able to foul the guy with the ball and send him to the line. That moves the advantage toward the team in the lead by letting them keep the ball in their better shooters hands.
