How is this piece one of the best things I read every year, not just on this blog, not just on this subject, but on anything anywhere? I look forward to it every year. Thanks again, Brian.

Kickoff is *not* 10:15 Saturday night.

I wonder what percentage of their talent we can attribute to them practicing against each other. It's gotta be serious motivation not to let your brother beat you.
Recruit more brothers split on both sides of the line.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Welcome in Jaaaaaaaaam...||
Or am I misreading a Chris Morris reference?
|1 year 32 weeks ago||That diamond formation||
I think Madden 2005 had a play like that for the Falcons where Vick would fake a handoff in a bootleg then circle around and follow his three backfield blockers, plus the WR. It ended up being one of those plays that got banned in games with my friends.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Keep Marcus||
Harbaugh meltdowns signify something that is bad, they are not bad in and of themselves. Marcus' double-bird, however, is a player of chaotic evil alignment who did something bad (by the rules) who added to his badness (culturally speaking) in a bad game (for us). That is all kinds of bad.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||Oh, okay||
I literally had to say out loud "Bo blew a fit" to get what was trying to be said.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||Wait, what about Bo?||
Short version is the Huskies stole it from some Vancouver hockey fans, then M cheerleaders picked it up on the '83 visit and taught it to Michigan Stadium, where the bowl was a natural fit (and Bo blew one).
Okay, so, the plural noun that immediately precedes "one" in the parenthetical is "cheerleaders." This might require re-phrasing and/or clarification.

Really? I missed that. I would've guessed you'd be okay with a player sacrificing a year-plus of pay for a college degree and autonomy in where he gets to play in the NHL.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||I dig tiny numbers on jerseys||
I sorta see what you're saying, Seth, but when I see a player with small numbers on the jersey, I think, "crap, that dude must be huge."
|2 years 7 weeks ago||I think he's honest, anyway||
Just read Brian's comment in the practice notes that he thinks Fisch sounds neutral. I disagree, or, at the very least, there's a lot less coachspeak and equivocation here.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||More Fisch interviews||
This dude doesn't mess around. I wonder if that honesty has anything to do with his weird career path...
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Nice pants, Jim||
I think he asked them for a pair of Colon's old pants. Either that or he bleached the hell out of a pair of his khakis.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Good to read about Tuf Borland||
Yeah, Harbaugh didn't have much time, but not even a solid 3* name guy in this first class.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Caveat esor||
Hot avocadoes are one of those love-it-or-hate-it things. Be prepared.
(Also, I cannot comprehend why people eat shrimp and cheese.)
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Thanks for the memories||
Fred and Seth.
As Fred isn't reading this, I'll focus on the thanks-Seth part by saying I really enjoyed the memory lane of the early '90s. That was the time period when Michigan football fixated itself as my strongest emotional relationship with a sport. Saturday afternoons with my dad, helping him with some kind of home improvement project, watching Michigan football...him cursing at the TV, at the shelving, at me (usually not with proper acumen). Funny how those are good memories now. <shrugs>
Also, holy crap: Touchdown Tim was better than I remembered, and I remember him being as good as Wheatley.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Yes, I scratched my head at that one too||
I was a mere lad when Harbaugh was playing.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||So this is what it's like when M has professionals in charge||
I had forgotten what that looked and sounded like. Huh!
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Duh, of course||
I forgot about that important part. Guess I had a brain cramp after all. ;)
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Am I having a brain collapse||
or did we not pick up a transfer from some rinky-dink school in...Massachusetts? Some kid who might be underratedly good?
|2 years 27 weeks ago||MARR = still older||
So if MAAR put up great numbers against younger competition, he will still be playing against a lot of younger competition in college. Maybe the drop-off won't be so bad, and, after a year of Beilein, he could be a man amongst boys again. (Well, metaphorically.)
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Aha||
So then all we have to do is get a time machine, go back to 2009, change the outcome of the tournament, and change the NCAA rules, while...wait, what was this place up to back then? Oh wait, year one of GERG. I'm staying here.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Bemidji, Minnesota!||
Yes, we have crickets!
Maybe if the hockey team does a weird out-of-conference game in 2019? Well, er, how about Minneapolis then? I'd probably drive five hours.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||recruting Froholdt||
Can we just send Steve Everitt out to recruit anybody with Viking in their lineage?
|4 years 1 week ago||Ah yes, the press||
I remember that Gladwell article now...at the time, I gave it something more than a circumspect raised eyebrow, but that could be because I think I bailed on him early and so was always skeptical.
Thanks for answering my Q on the matter, Brian. Good explanation. I grok.
|4 years 1 week ago||Shortening the shot clock and Bo Ryan||
More possessions in which to get aggravated by how they play? This is doubleplusungood.
|4 years 1 week ago||Excellent work||
Another fine job from you.
Looking at just the B1G by school map, is it just me, or does it seem like Wisconsin's geographic reach is mighty impressive?
|4 years 20 weeks ago||Bundesliga ahoy||
I also thought about adopting a Bundeliga team in lieu of the NHL. Yeah, it's not really a 1-to-1 trade, but I don't know Thing One about soccer, and Bundesliga because I am trying to avoid crazy rabid Premiership fans. If we get an official MGoFußball team chosen, then I'd be greateful.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Do we have a scholarship open?||
I mean, let's offer one to Barker just cuz. (Also, no idea how, but I still have the ability to hate on UMN even as they flounder.)
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Wait just a second||
In that photo, if he were to reach up to those tacos, Charlton could catch a ball thrown to Tacopants. I don't mean to alarm you all, but this might be Tacopants in corporeal form.
