- proof that there are way too many bowls

Looks like we already beat Virginia Tech tonight!

Keep it simple. Our case for the playoff comes down to two things:
1) We only have a case if Colorado wins the Pac 12. If Washington wins, let's look forward to a great bowl game.
2) If Colorado wins, the committee will be faced choosing between two teames (Colorado and either of the possible Big Ten champs) who have two losses (like Michigan) and both lost to Michigan in the regular season.
In that scenario, I think we should be pissed if we don't make it and we should be lobbying the internets hard!

I, unfortunately, went into this game (and the MSU game and the election) with a huge dose of perspective. I lost somebody very close to me this fall--someone a little younger than your friend. I have been walking through life in a surreal haze. It just doesn't seem possible. I was bummed this past Saturday about the OSU game but not nearly as much as I would have been in past years. It's just a damn game.
The one thing I can say is that it's ok for you to not be ok with this. Sometimes, things hurt and we've got to allow ourselves to feel that hurt. Also--time helps. It doesn't make everything ok but it does get better every day.
Sending love and good thoughts.

One guy predicts EMU goes to a bowl game!!! That is simultaneously

I was a student at Ypsi High when Samaha coached there and later worked along side him as a teacher at Huron (I now teach elsewhere). Samaha is as good as it gets! An absolute great guy, class guy, hard worker, tenacious coach. Beilein couldn't have hired a better human being. So proud of him, happy for him, and even happier for UM b-ball.

Not to laugh at your expense but this is funny. It reminds me of my friend who asked why he always gets ads for vaporizers on YouTube. I was like, "have you been searching for vaporizers online?" And he was like, "Yeah, I guess. Is that why?"

Mark Snyder is a tool. Non-story.

My first impression was: wow, he's tall. I'd say he's every inch of his 6'5" listing.
|51 weeks 4 days ago||I did not see Partridge or||
I did not see Partridge or Bush Sr. but I was arriving as Gary, Singleton, and 2 Paramus coaches (not Partridge) were leaving. So it's very possible that Bush Sr. and Partridge were there earlier. Didn't see anyone in head-to-toe UM gear.
|51 weeks 5 days ago||That was the goal!||
Yeah, just tried to let them know that we supported them and that they'd be right at home here. Tried to stay out of their way for the most part.

So I get how this affects Swenson. But how does this sit with you, personally?

|1 year 4 weeks ago||"Great, great guy"||
I've got a good friend who is heavily involved in UMass athletics and is also good friends w/ BC DL coach, Ben Albert. My friend has personally met Brown many times and when I texted him this morning, he said:
"Unbelievable coach and even better guy. Just a great, great guy."
He went on to list all the stats and how Brown was Assistant Coach of the Year but, again, went out of his way to say that Brown is as good as it gets as a person.
Just to add to the "father figure" talk.

The signs my son and I brought this morning:
"Kirk Cousins washes Tom Brady's car"
"Desmond was Tripped"
I also liked:
"Dantonio thinks this is a sign of disrespect"

24-22, Michigan. NW goes for two and fails in the final minute?

I was getting the wrong videos at different points during the post-chart reading. Not sure what was going on but there seemed to be a few that didn't match what you were writing about.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||This post is thread-worthy||
because of the source. If that was just another ESPN talking head I'd say this isn't worthy of a thread. But to hear JUB, who clearly has direct access to Jim Harbaugh, say that the coach is locked in to UM for the long-term--that's big. Obviously, it's early but I really enjoy seeing that tweet from Bacon.

Yes. Yes it is, Goose.

That actually made their performance against BYU more impressive in my eye. They didn't force a turnover and were still that dominant.

Too bad they don't have a backup plan at QB...

Just watched his highlight reel. So excited about him. So many ways to use a talent like him in Harbaugh's offense (Durkin's defense?).
|1 year 20 weeks ago||I think that was terrific.||
I think that was terrific. But maybe I'm the absolute target audience for such a promotional stunt. I remember playing frogger in my freind's garage in 1983. Damn, those were the days.
Oh yeah, and I won the game, so...yeah. I'm pretty proud of myself right about now.
