|5 days 14 hours ago||I'm pretty sure you're right and it's 1982||
Jim Young stepped down after the 1981 season, and while I couldn't find a decent photo of Burtnett I'm pretty sure Young's not up there.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Taken down||
Should I be grateful?
|2 weeks 17 hours ago||Looking forward to Dime a Dog Night!||
I'm sure Dave Brandon is looking into it as we speak.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Is there a good reason||
You can't just skip these?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I really doubt it||
While Barwis was undoubtedly overhyped, he was at a minimum competent in the job. The same goes for the guy Hoke brought in, Aaron Wellman.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Trolls never completely disappear||
They pop up periodically under new names.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I assume he's Brazilian||
Although then he'd be on suicide watch, so maybe not.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Not entirely fair||
His decision making improved dramatically from the '87 to '88 seasons. In 1987 he was a turnover machine with 16 interceptions with a completion percentage of 47.6%. In 1988, he didn't throw one interception and his completion percentage went up to 57.1%.
To be fair, he was the backup in 1988 so he only threw half as many passes, However, he was the starter after Taylor was hurt against Ohio State and USC.
I would have liked to have seen how he would have done in 1989 as a starter had he not been kicked off the team. Even if Taylor had done the job Brown would have played extensively after Taylor's injury against Notre Dame that year.

It (and the LCBO [Liquor Control Board of Ontario]) are remnants of Prohibition and are hurting the craft beer industry in Toronto. (Edit: And in the rest of Ontario.)
As an aside, I believe the Beer Store is only in Ontario.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||If they make it into the championship game||
They have a chance of winning it. It's way too early to say how much of a chance. Maybe they can win if they play well and the other team makes a few mistakes; maybe they'll need the other team's bus to get lost on the way to the stadium. Hard to say before a singe down has been played.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly||
Rutgers is on the schedule for the next two years, so if this kid ends up starting he's likely to play against Michigan.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Remember 2009?||
Navy nearly beat Ohio State, 31-27. That was the year Ohio State ended up beating Oregon in the Rose (finishing 11-2).
Sure, I wouldn't be surprised to see Ohio State blow out Navy. I also wouldn't be surprised to see them struggle. With a new OL. In their season opener. On the road.
Michigan used to play Navy fairly often in the Bo era. A lot of those games were blowouts, but several of them were far too close for comfort.

Thank you very much.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Better childhood nutrition||
Average height has been increasing for generations most likely due to improvements in childhood nutrition.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Didn't he make something of a jump as a senior?||
I remember him as being much improved then.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Could that be a response to the halftime outage||
A couple of years ago? (Seems plausible, anyway, but I might be delusional.)
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Fargas did just okay at USC||
HIs 2002 stats: 715 yards, 4.4 yards per carry, second leading rusher behind Sultan McCullough in both categories. See link.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Tebow was a running fullback||
He was pretty mobile but he wasn't at all elusive. Carr-era teams had problems with elusive running quarterbacks.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||The Big Ten played 9 conference games for a while||
Looking at Michigan's schedules in the eighties, I believe it was from 1981 to 1984. For obvious reasons, all games against conference opponents were considered conference games.
There were a couple of teams that were unable to play the full slate of conference games. The one I remember is Ohio State in 1982, which lost out on a Rose Bowl trip because they played one fewer game than Michigan. Each team finished with one loss in conference play, but Ohio State won The Game that year. Because they had one fewer conference wins, though, they finished in second place.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I'm going to register Buckeye In A Bag||
Before he does.
(Although fake or not, RDT was certainly entertaining.)
|11 weeks 9 hours ago||Refer to it as The Ohio University||
Then people will understand.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Good point||
A similar example: anybody remember Matt Hasselbeck? The Packers drafted him in 1998 and traded him to Seattle in 2001 since at the time it was clear that Favre wasn't close to *cough cough* retirement. (Holmgren was coach in Seattle at the time, but had also been coach of the Packers when Hasselbeck had been on the practice squad.)
|11 weeks 4 days ago||One of my all-time favorite players||
Coming back from the knee injury he had in the Gator Bowl must have been tough, too.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Have you been to Maple Leaf Gardens since the reno?||
If not, Ryerson University has atheletic facilties in the upper part of the building and Loblaws has a grocery store in the lower part of the building. I haven't been in the Ryerson part of the buildng, but I go to the grocery store all the time. I think they did a pretty good job with it.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||To add to this||
Alcohol is also illegal for most college students (i.e., those under 21). Should the NCAA ban underage atheletes for a year for having a drink?
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I found me some Krishna spam||
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Henson was mostly a backup in 1998||
He did get some playing time against Notre Dame and Syracuse, but only after those games got out of hand.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I want the passion of Brian Kelly!||
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I thought he meant the 2003 game||
At the time we were undefeated (although that ugly loss to Oregon was the next week).
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Denard over Gardner until Denard was hurt in 2012||
And then Garder over Morris last year.
