|39 min 35 sec ago||I think he meant the 2007 team||
OSU lost to Juice Williams and Illinois in November but still made the BCS championship game in 2007. Like you said, the 2006 OSU was (sigh) undefeated in the regular season.
|3 days 4 hours ago||We can only hope the ending is the same||
But I don't think we'll be so lucky.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Those were the days||
|4 days 23 hours ago||I'm rooting for Sparty to win 4-3||
A Spartan victory is the least worst outcome. I don't think Dantonio would be able to capitalize on a Rose Bowl appearance the way Meyer would on a BCS championship appearance.
|4 days 23 hours ago||Urban should punch Christian Jones||
Or one of the other linebackers. After Miller throws an interception.
|1 week 3 days ago||Meijer to USC? No, but I could see Walmart take that job||
Seriously, there is no way Urban Meyer leaves Ohio State for USC at this point in his career.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The offense under Tom Brady actually did struggle in 1998||
Look at October of 1998, where they averaged 15 points a game against 3-8 Iowa, 3-9 Northwestern, 4-7 Indiana and 5-6 Minnesota. Looking at the box scores, that 15 points per game includes three safeties.
As a whole that team managed to score more than 30 points against exactly one team with a pulse (Arkansas in the Citrus Bowl, and the 45 points against them included two defensive touchdowns).
While the line on that team had a lot of talent (e.g., Steve Hutchinson), I believe three of the starters were redshirt sophmores (including Hutchinson).
|2 weeks 5 days ago||He blew out his left knee as a rookie||
And his right knee the next year. Then he ruptured a disk in his neck when he came back from that. Hard to say what would have happened if he had been healthy.
As a rookie he did intercept a Dan Marino pass and return it 90 yards for a touchdown.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I still like Ryan Leaf||
Even if he was taken at #2.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Q: How does what he wear take away from his focus?||
A: It doesn't.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Absolutely true||
For example, the New York metropolitan area is #4 in your first link. While it's a natural grouping, it also includes a good chunk of New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I guess it depends on how you define "city"||
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Mexico City isn't even in the top 10||
It is #1 in North America, though.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Guys like Carr or Tim shouldn't be in the conversation||
At least not for worst no. 1 pick.
They were both busts, but they showed enough promise to start multiple seasons in the NFL. Carr was basically the only starter in Houston for five years, and I think Couch lost the starting job in his fifth year. They weren't successes, but they weren't clearly over their head, either.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Rodriguez stays at WVU until after the BCS championship game||
By that time, Martin would have already selected somebody else.
I really can't see Rodriguez leaving before his team goes to a BCS championship game. Regardless of the support he gets from WVU, it may be too late in the year from him to get the class of job he wants, and if he does leave it's after the 2008 regular season.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Field goal||
After recovering an onside kick, I believe.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||1979 Gator Bowl||
Ahead 9-0, John Wangler was injured by North Carolina's Lawrence Taylor and he wasn't quite the same afterwards. Not only do we end up losing that game, but Wangler doesn't start the following year until the third game. This includes a heart-breaking 29-27 loss to Notre Dame, in which Wangler didn't come in until Michigan was down 14-0. The next week they lost to South Carolina at home in a game in another close game.
With a healthy Wangler playing all year and getting in full practice time, I think Michigan wins all of its games in 1980 (in addition to the Gator Bowl in 1979).
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Like the loss to 3-8 Purdue in 1996?||
Most of the losses were to ranked teams, but certainly not all. They also had a couple of losses to borderline bowl teams (6-5-1 Michigan State in 1995, 7-4-1 Wisconsin in 1994).
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||Moeller had the best post-Bo record in the Rose||
Which is more of a reflection of our post-season struggles than anything else. 1-1 for Moeller still trumps 1-3 for Carr.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Print out the image; attach to punching bag||
I see some suggestions on the Internet to try an iron-on kit; I have no idea if that would actually work.
|5 weeks 29 min ago||Don't be ridiculous||
Everybody knows THE KNOWLEDGE is Drew Sharp.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Oh, how cute||
I grew up going to Michigan football games in the seventies and eighties. I've been to more games than most alumni. I didn't go there for a variety of reasons, but why shouldn't I feel a connection to the University of Michigan?
The idea that only alumni have the emotional bond to be fans is silly. I think he'd have a better case if he argued that only former players can be fans. After all, only they have really shared in the emotional bonding and struggles of an athletic team. What do alumni know? They just paid their tuition.
This would be true for pro sports as well.
|6 weeks 16 hours ago||Not even the best part||
The play before, the Spartans had blocked Gilette's punt for a touchdown. Somebody had jumped offsides, though, and the play was called back. That would have tied up the game, too.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan 23, MSU 22||
You heard it here first.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I like Green's||
Unfortunately I can't get it here (Toronto). I'll have to see if I can get the Harvester beers when I'm in the states for Christmas.
I've heard mixed things about the Omission beers and Estrella Damm Daura from other people with celiac so I'm not that anxious to try them.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||It's not a bad beer if in good condition||
I never used to drink it, though, unless everything else on the beer list was worse.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I've stuck largely to red wine||
Gluten-free beer ranges from passable to awful, but there are a couple I have every now and then as a change of pace. I have not been able to get my hands on one of the beers that have allegedly removed gluten (such as Estrella Damm Daura).
A good, dry cider is also a nice every now and then. Most of the ones I can get are too sweet, though.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||There's no point in remember bowl game names||
The names will change them in a couple of years anyway.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I'm sure somebody out there agrees with him||
But what are the odds they can type a coherent sentence? Pretty low, I would say.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||The FSU offense put up 37 points in that game||
Their defense did return two interceptions for touchdowns. One of them was probably the second ugliest play I've ever seen (although it was on fourth down late in the game and pretty much Michigan's last chance).
