This was a joke. Sigh. Does a person really have to preface an obvious joke with: "I'm a huge Michigan fan"?

[Insert quarterback of any Michigan opponent in the last three years] has been really sharp today!

Congrats on the USMAP finalist thing. I am both a long-time reader of MGoBlog, as well as the proprietor of one of the not-very-highly-trafficked other finalists. Were I a bigger man, I would vote for MGoBlog - and would tell my readers to do the same, because I'm a huge fan. But I'm a very, very small man. So I vote for myself.
But I'm honored to be sharing the dais with the Internet equivalent of my hero.

As an Ohio driver who neither drives a truck nor roots for the Buckeyes, I'm going to have to suggest you rethink your use of the word "literally."
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Great news, but it kind of||
Great news, but it kind of stinks that the staff has to use valuable time re-recruiting commits. I know that tends to happen anyway, but I'm sure it's going to be extra difficult this year.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||How is it possible||
that the UM job has become less attractive than the Notre Dame job was last year after the disaster that the ND program had become?
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Indeed||
Looks like the Broncos will look to talk to Harbaugh, as well: ESPN.
If nothing else, as the number of possibilities for Harbaugh grows, it's harder to see it being a quick decision (which is unfortunate for Michigan).
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Maybe I took a stupid pill||
Maybe I took a stupid pill this morning, but how is Denard (correctly) recognized as the best offensive player in the Big Ten, but is not one of the top two quarterbacks according to the media? Because they don't consider him a traditional "quarterback"?
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Every close call is going to||
Every close call is going to Oregon. Officials know where their bread is buttered.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Yes, I'm sure he was just||
Yes, I'm sure he was just trying to do his best to return the shoe to Denard.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Is it possible he, too, was||
Is it possible he, too, was just praying?
I thought Watt's shoe throw was far douchier.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Gibbons has kicked the second||
Gibbons has kicked the second two PATs. And yes, they've been ridiculously low.
|4 years 37 weeks ago||I thought the same - seems||
I thought the same - seems like there should be a time runoff, or at a minimum, the clock should start when the ball is set.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||It was atrocious||
When he was tackled on his 8-yard run (preceding his injury), there was silence. Denard got up, started walking, and then went down. THEN the fans cheered. Absolutely abhorrent.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||How easy did you think it would be||
to beat one of Illinois or Purdue last year?
|4 years 44 weeks ago||I thought Dileo looked like a||
I thought Dileo looked like a much better returner than Gallon on the two he received (though I think both came back for penalties). Gallon's biggest problem seems to be his indecisiveness.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||Wow, it seemed like a pretty||
Wow, it seemed like a pretty obvious joke to me. The OP was just kidding around.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I don't need to understand||
I don't need to understand the gambler's fallacy to know that the chances that a player who runs 5 times gets hurt are less than the chances that a player who runs 500 times gets hurt. We can argue about the numbers, but at the end of the day, more plays means more chances to get hurt. Looking at one run and saying the odds a player gets hurt on that run are the same as the odds he gets hurt on the next run doesn't really address the issue - namely, that the odds he gets hurt during two runs is greater than the odds he gets hurt during just one run.
I think that's the point he's trying to make.
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Don't forget||
Avery and Talbott - or are you assuming they redshirt?
|5 years 24 weeks ago||I've never understood the expression||
"up a/shit creek without a paddle."
I mean, if you're up the creek, you can just float down it with the current. I'd think it would be much worse to be down shit creek without a paddle.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||I had no idea Columbus was||
I had no idea Columbus was considered a "dangerous" city (even aside from University areas being high crime). I walk around downtown at night without even a hint of concern. Maybe that's me being stupid.

IPA = Gross
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Neg-banged for an on-point||
Neg-banged for an on-point and humorous reference? All kinds of lame.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Don't tase me, bro.||
Don't tase me, bro.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||It will be a long off-season||
It will be a long off-season for that kid. And he is just a kid. Hopefully he's got a short memory.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Am I the only one who is||
Am I the only one who is annoyed with the way RichRod has gamed the injury reports this year? If Minor plays (which, like, obviously I really want him to), I will be affirmatively angry with RichRod.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Sounds like he is looking||
Sounds like he is looking forward to a fun trip for a big game.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||That is a lot of moving parts||
That is a lot of moving parts for one game. I guess it's too late in the season to make one change at a time - then again, ironically, it's awfully late in the season to make a whole-sale move like this.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||I thought about that, but my||
I thought about that, but my point was that the injury - even if not the tweak - was known. So shouldn't he at least be listed as probable if he's in a position that a little tweak could leave him behind from the trip entirely?
I just don't want to see Rich Rod called out.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Rich Rod is going to have to||
Rich Rod is going to have to be careful, otherwise folks are going to accuse him of gaming his own injury report. If in fact Minor didn't travel today, this will be the second time a guy has not even been on the injury report despite a known injury, and then didn't even travel to play (the other being Carlos Brown at Iowa). How can the guy not even be, at a minimum, "probable"?
