Fun fact, I did not know minnesota students also called their school UofM until I met some in chicago.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||Honestly, as much as I want||
Honestly, as much as I want to see competitive balance, it's not something you are going to reorganiez for in the future and it's hard to do. Who knows how Penn State is going to do through their scholarship reductions? Is Michigan State in a mid-upper tier of hte big ten? What about Northwesterh who appears to be on the rise?
I think the picking of winners and losers is tough and a bit shortsighted on a competitive balance aspect, though geographic exposure is a fair argument. I would also agree that certain programs may value football more (nebraska) than say basketball for other schools (Indiana) and so they will be more likely to stay in a mid-upper range than drop out, but it's just hard to tell.
I'm just glad Michigan and Ohio are in the same region. Being in the Chicago area, it sucks that I won't see them out here as often, but I suppose it was bound to happen unless the eye was chosen for the realignment.

Just wanted to get this in here, but anyone who works in the chemical industry is taught that they should NOT try to help in situations like this unless they are part of the response team.
With the unknown circumstances and the potential for toxic gases, you could just be creating another victim if you run in there. Every safety training says you call for help and you get out. There have been multiple situations where someone has run in and died trying to help their friend.

Woo tickets renewed! Also grabbed a couple for the Northwestern game

good job Denard! now to just finish strong with school and the draft

they were saying some people lost limbs and that there were trash cans that exploded. This is terrible.
for anyone who reddits, here's the thread I've been looking at.

I thought i saw an estimate of about 15k this year. Regardless i drove in from the chicago area and it was f'ing cold, but it was a good time.

What I got from this is that we are recruiting the sun.

sigh this is just depressing. I shouldn't care about this and this should have ended a while ago. On facebook you can only vote once so why did they make it this long?
oh well on with the rest of my life. I"m gonna be pretty sad if Denard loses because of cheating (though I will not take part in it myself)

Hecklinski used to be a QB and QB coach, so I'm sure he is capable of doing good evaluations as well. I'd imagine that Borges wouldn't send him unless he trusted his abilities.

in all seriousness, DB seems to be doing pretty well with coaching hires so far.

I live in "ND territory" i suppose being in Chicago. Aside from "END SEC REIGN" and "ND FANS WOULD BE INSUFFERABLE" it kind of sucks to feel this way but I feel like ND doesn't deserve to be in this game because they had so many close calls that went their way (Pitt field goal, stanford no TD, USC Barkley is out...). If they win I am just going to quietly shake my head (also because I am watching the game with a bunch of my ND friends).

"I believe you can bet all of your possessions and everything in East Lansing that our passing game will be vastly improved next season."
This does not sound like someone who has a lot of confidence. Do posessions include debt?
|19 weeks 3 days ago||I think one thing to keep in||
I think one thing to keep in mind is... the teams are still going to have to travel EVERYWHERE it's just a matter of how often you travel to each of these places.
for the inner outer config, it could be arranged such that the outer teams have 2 far road games per year. It's not like we go to every road game (I live in the chicago area and I thought Nebraska was too far to go to, so I doubt many people from Michigan would go there).
I guess the feast or famine doesn't sit well with some of the people I've spoken to, but I am still a fan of the eye of doom.

Fred Jackson was a QB coach before he switched to RB coach at Michigan, though I will admit that there are probably more parallels there.
(Edit: Added list of experience for Jackson - from Mgoblue.com)
|19 weeks 5 days ago||what's with the hype on PSU?||
Why PSU, if I may ask? They lost their seniors and the scholly reds and transfers will start to hit them next year. I don't think it'll be easy but I don't expect to lose that game either.

Fitz was in a boot at the bowl game, and someone asked him about it and he said he would get it off in a couple weeks. Hopefully he can be back up to speed by fall with that much time.

I'm thinking 9-3, though I think our schedule gives time for our oline to mesh before the real competition (with the exception of ND, which may serve as the early challenge to show where they need to be). 3 losses, to either ND, Northwestern, Nebraska, MSU, and OSU. With all the home games and our track record at home, and Northwestern being almost like a home game, I think we win 2 of these games.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||would it have been better if||
would it have been better if they did a blue or black outline of the numbers? I think that would have made the readabiliy sufficient.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||FWIW, someone asked Fitz when||
FWIW, someone asked Fitz when he would get his boot off and he said in 2 weeks.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Double plus for that last||
Double plus for that last point. That hit was brutal
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I was there and it was a loss||
I was there and it was a loss but in some weird way it feels like am inspiring loss. We got beaten on talent but with the transitions that was an issue which time will fix in the near future

I haven't liked any of our uniform changes, but I do like a lot of oregon's uniforms. I feel like adidas is just doing something wrong.

This is not getting enough attention. It doesn't explicitly say it was weed. There's a pretty long discussion here based on speculation.
