|1 week 2 days ago||I'm just fine with this||
Would've liked MSU at night but have no problem not having a night game. I like the idea that they happen every once in awhile. But don't need 'em every year. Michigan football is a big deal no matter what time it happens.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I grew up on Indiana||
I grew up on Indiana Basketball and worshipped at the altar of Bobby Knight.
To this day, I cheer for UM basketball...except when they're playing IU (and was the only person in Ann Arbor happy when Jordan Morgan's putback rimmed out a couple years ago).
There, I said it.

Thanks! Glad that made a difference for at least one human being today. I'll sleep well tonight.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks so.
Fun Fact: Lazlo from that movie is played by the same guy (Jon Gries) who plays Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite.

Looks like Nik's teammates have been watching Real Genius a few too many times...
|2 weeks 5 days ago||NO!!||
I care about this way too much as well, but with a different take.
Legends jerseys have to go. Get rid of 'em. Kaput.
Woodson didn't have earn #2 (except that he was highly touted coming out of high school) and David Terrell didn't need to earn #1 (same reasoning).
If you want to honor legends, put their numbers on the pressbox/luxury box area. Period.

Not sure if an editor changed it but it shows up as "ball hawks" when I read the article now.

About a minute left (or maybe a little more). Wisconsin down by 5 but the ball would've been theirs, right under their own net. Instead, Duke gets the ball and hits a 3 and is up by 8.

Instant reply isn't the devil. Those refs were just blind.

Just awful. Feel so bad for Wisconsin fans tonight.

You mean actual maize? Let me guess, you liked Louisville's new version of red too.

I don't see the quick release.
|4 weeks 21 hours ago||Norfleet at corner||
Looked pretty awful. Just outmatched, size wise. The one touchdown came off several toss-up balls in his direction, exploiting his (lack of) height. It was an interesting experiment but I would be shocked if he sees a down of playtime at that position this year. And the fact that he was playing there makes me think coaches don't like his lack of height at the WR position either. I realize this may be reading too much into a Spring game but--I wonder if we will ever see him play a meaningful down (aside from kick returns) with Harbaugh as coach.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Woohoo!||
It was a lame idea and I hated the number-switching.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Houston is the perfect||
Houston is the perfect example of why letting Suh go was the right move. The Texans are 100% locked into having one incredible player on their team. It doesn't matter that Watt is the best player in the league--they didn't make the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Patriots let go a GREAT player (Logan Mankins) right before the season began and won the super bowl.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||I think this was absolutely||
I think this was absolutely the right move. As good as he is (and I think he's the best DT in the league) I don't think the Patriots or Seahawks would've spent the kind of money he was going to require to lock up. Paying him huge amounts would have been a Texans move. Letting him go is a Patriots move (the same type they employed w/ Ty Law, Lawyer Milloy, Randy Moss, and Logan Mankins). Football is a team sport and I'm glad to see the Lions focus on spreading money across the whole team.

We're not worried about replacing "The Victors." That's not even possible.
We're worried that it's going to be "We Are ND" 2.0--A PR nightmare created by Ross School frat boys with no taste.

Beat you to it! But, yes, I agree.

Either you are not familiar with the meaning of that speech or you really want to take down Brian and ressurect positive feelings about Brandon. "Honorable man" is an ironic take by Antony.

Best. Gif. Ever.

I think it's fantastic that Harbaugh is bringing a woman into the football culture at Michigan. I teach at a high school with many students from rough backgrounds and we have a volunteer in the building who all the students refer to as "grandma." Her mere presence in the building has an amazing impact on some of the young men and their behavior at school. We have the ability to call out behavior and say, "is this how you'd behave with your grandma in the room?" And a lot of the time we don't even have to call it out. They are just more respectful with her around.
I think having a "team mom" will have similar positive benefits. A lot of these kids are away from home for the first time in their lives and are surrounded by a lot of temptation. Having a "mom" away from home reminds them of how they might behave with their actual mom around. It also may mitigate some of the male bravado than can sometimes border on misogyny in sports culture. I think it's a great move.

Plus one for a Mighty Boosh reference, even though that GIF is terrifying.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Damn, that's a great gif.||
Damn, that's a great gif. I'm a teacher and I swear I've had a student like that in just about all my classes. Just doing crazy shit because they can.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||This is big. I am really||
This is big. I am really impressed with this kid and think his combination of mobility + accuracy separates him from our other QBs. Obviously, he's tall but I don't think that's the most important factor. His mobility seems to fit the Luck/Kaepernick mold. I'd be thrilled to have him join the class.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Damn...||
That young man looks like a difference maker. With the experience we have on our OL, I could see him coming in and starting day one and being very successful.
Hook 'em Harbaugh.
