It was Justin Feagin in '08.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Are they going to do "laces||
Are they going to do "laces or spaces" to determine who gets the ball first and who gets first pick?
|4 years 42 weeks ago||To answer your original question...||
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Florida has no state income||
Florida has no state income tax. So yes, significantly lower taxes than Ohio, indeed.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||So you are saying the||
So you are saying the greatest Tigers hitter ever it isn't Ty Cobb? You know, the guy with over 4000 hits and a lifetime .360 BA.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||If we are winning the Big 10||
If we are winning the Big 10 Championship every year, then Hell Yes!
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Vince Young in the Rose Bowl||
Vince Young in the Rose Bowl against USC was the first thing to come to my mind.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||If he had eligibility left||
If he had eligibility left (and played football) you can be damn sure Dantonio would have him suiting up in September.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||I hope you mean "when we beat||
I hope you mean "when we beat Sparty every year so it stops being an accomplishment and goes back to the foregone conclusion that it should be."
|5 years 19 weeks ago||Everybody curses at people.||
Everybody curses at people. Curses at you. Curses at me.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||In the 80s, when Miami used||
In the 80s, when Miami used to play Notre Dame annually, many people deemed the game Catholics vs. Convicts.
I think Jews vs. Gentiles might only work if Notre Dame was playing Yeshivah University.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||A healthy Cronin and Morgan||
A healthy Cronin and Morgan would pretty much have us exactly where we are. Neither of them really jumped out as game-changers. Wasted scholarships...
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Why would you subject your||
Why would you subject your son to the disaster that is this year's Michigan basketball team? Instead you should show him highlights of the 1997 football game against Ohio State. Don't punish the boy.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||But will they finally give||
But will they finally give Denard the speed rating he deserves? Or should I say QB #16...
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Taylor Mays||
Dude is an athletic freak that will disappoint whoever drafts him.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||I'll take the bait and +1 you||
I'll take the bait and +1 you for that.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Last night my search for||
Last night my search for patriotic attire failed, so I did the next logical thing. I threw on a Michigan hockey jersey and repped Jack Johnson.
EDIT: Ricky Stanzi = America. Love it or leave it.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||You, sir, are quite the||
You, sir, are quite the masochist.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Forgive me genius...I am now||
Forgive me genius...I am now a student at the University of Michigan. Happy??? I can see that by your -17 points your opinion obviously matters to the world. I thought this was a Michigan blog. I don't think I would talk about being a student at the University of (Insert a not very cleverly thought of school starting with M).
|5 years 23 weeks ago||I grew up a huge Hurricane||
I grew up a huge Hurricane fan (and still am) before I came to U of M as a student, and I still watch most of their games when I can. I can confidently say that all the recruiting experts completely missed on this kid. He couldn't get on the field, and Miami has been far from being "Miami." It's addition by subtraction. Also let me clarify that when Bryce Brown was being a d-bag, Randy Shannon pulled his scholarship, and it was after signing day. Good riddance to the entire family.
|5 years 24 weeks ago||The Swimsuit Issue may not||
The Swimsuit Issue may not compare to porn, but every year I inevitably scan the body painting section for nipple sightings.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Chalk another one up for the||
Chalk another one up for the angry Michigan-hating gods.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Same call as last year||
Same call as last year against Notre Dame at Yost. CCHA refs are pathetic. This is bullshit.
EDIT: Sorry about the double post, but really...fuck those refs.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Same call as last you against||
Same call as last you against Notre Dame at Yost. CCHA refs are pathetic. This is bullshit.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||It's really simple.||
It's really simple. Tennessee is taking a risk. If he's Jim Tressel, a guy from Youngstown St. who had some success at lower levels but was very unproven, then it's a brilliant hire. (Or Gene Chizik for those of you who want an analogy that includes Division One football coaches who had moderate to no success before inheriting an upper-tier job.) If he's Bill Callahan, a guy who had his only success in the NFL on a team essentially built by Jon Gruden and then proceeded to flame out, well...then you are Nebraska for the last 10 years.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||If ever there was someone||
If ever there was someone that should speak for a Michael Jackson memorial, it's Stephen A. Smith.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||Ok, someone has to say||
Ok, someone has to say this...Torrian Wilson!!!
He decommitted from Stanford and said his top three were Tennessee, USF and Michigan. Well we are surprisingly the only team with coaching stability! Come on down, Torrian. Or come on up?
EDIT: Damn you beat me to it. Sorry for the double post.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||I still think all of the||
I still think that all of the admitted (or blatantly obvious) steroid users - I'm looking at you Clemens and Bonds - belong in the Hall of Fame. I would add McGwire, A-Rod, Manny, and Sosa too. I also think that many pitchers were on steroids too, as were many other hitters that they were competing with for all these records. Anyone who watched baseball knows what happened during the 90s and early 2000s. When we take our kids to the Cooperstown, we can explain to them all about these players during the "Steroid Era." I will always defend that these numbers should stay in the record book, and these players should make the Hall of Fame. Its up to the writers though, and it doesn't seem like McGwire will ever make it, although I'm now curious if people will "soften up" because he admitted it.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||My complaint with ESPN isn't||
My complaint with ESPN isn't the way they reported the information. Its that their "expert witness" (Craig James) was completely biased, and it changed the way they reported the story. All subsequent coverage of the story was pretty much done in a manner that declared Leach this monster who is probably getting mistreated by a punk kid and his annoying dad.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||Ever since I heard Craig||
Ever since I heard Craig James speaking during the Champs Sports Bowl "as a father," rather than "as an analyst," I was convinced that ESPN was completely unprofessional and one-sided in the story. I generally think ESPN is too based on gimmicks now anyway, but it is really frustrating when the network with a monopoly on sports news is that unreliable.
