|1 week 1 day ago||Smoking Loon Old Vine Zinfandel||
I'm not sure what the "old vines" means but it's a decent wine. I tend to like a lot of California zins.
|1 week 3 days ago||Baltimore won the Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer||
For that matter, by the time Peyton Manning made it to the Super Bowl last year it was pretty obvious he was washed up.
|2 weeks 17 hours ago||Basketball wasn't consistently good in the 70s and 80s||
There was a stretch of 7 years from Johnny Orr's last three years to Bill Frieder's first four years where the team did not make the NCAA tournament. See here.
It's true that the NCAA tournament was much harder to get into then and at least of those teams would have made it in under the current rules. At the same time, look at the conference record of most of those teams; only two finished above .500 in the Big Ten.
It wasn't until Frieder's fifth year that Michigan started going to the tournament on a regular basis.

With two different quarterbacks playing.
And don't forget 2008, when NE went 11-5 with Brady playing less than a half the entire year.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Thanks!||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Was he any relation to Keith Bostic?||
Keith went to Pioneer and was a few years older (I think he was in the same class as Anthony Carter).
|2 weeks 6 days ago||That was addressed to the crowd that wants Brady as a coach||
I'd used him as an example in a previous thread.
You need to not take everything so personally.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||And that worked out so well!||
Wayne Fontes had a better career record than Bart Starr. If Starr had been someone else, Green Bay fans would have driven him out of town long before the team fired him.
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||Tom Tupa!||
Oh, you mean starting. As a quarterback. Never mind.
(For those who weren't around in the eighties, Tupa was Ohio State's punter and second- or third-string quarterback behind Mike Tomczak and Jim Karsatos. In 1987, he started at quarterback and played well enough to be drafted in the third round by Phoenix. He wasn't terribly successful and spent most of his career bouncing around the league as a punter, which he did for the Tampa Bay team that beat the Raiders in Super Bowl 37.)
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Doesn't mean he'll be any good at it||
Are you old enough to remember Hall of Famer Bart Starr's career as a coach? Wasn't pretty.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Or Rome, Ohio?||
It's about an hour east of Moscow on 52.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Scored almost at will?||
So the only game where they "scored almost at will" was against one of the worst two or three teams in the league.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||"Go Blue"||
Snarling wolverine suggested it already.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||And they needed a blocked field goal to do it||
Both the winner and the loser finished under .500.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||How are they getting to 7-9?||
I can't see them beating the Seahawks on the road.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||That was one of those rare years UT beat Florida||
That was a good team, though. They were #2 in the BCS standings until they lost the SEC championship game to one of Saban's early LSU teams.
Donte Stallworth killed us, too.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Just to add to that||
Before becoming a head coach, per Wikipedia he spent 2 years a GA at Michigan, 13 years as an offensive line coach at Colorado and then at Michigan, 3 years as offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State and 3 years as a tight ends coach at Dallas. He's never been a defensive coordinator or position coach.
Which does make it odd that many of his LSU teams had good defenses and questionable offenses, but it doesn't make him a defensive guru.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Everyone knows the real rival is Chicago||
I'm still pissed about 1905.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Doh!||
|14 weeks 2 days ago||They did beat Missouri in 2014||
That Missouri team won 11 games and the SEC East.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||There's been at least one 13-point overtime win||
Arizona State 48, UCS 35. ASU scores to go up by 7 then returns a fumbled pitch for a touchdown.
To my surprise, Kevin Wilson was not involved.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||38-13, Meeeeechigan||
And that's Bo, Jim Mandich, Rose Bowl Queen Pamela Tedesco, Mickey Mouse, USC players Bob Jensen and Jim Gunn, and USC assistant Marv Goux. (According to this, anyway.)
|15 weeks 2 days ago||31-21||

|15 weeks 4 days ago||...which would make it even more of a blast!||
Although maybe not for Brian Kelly or Notre Dame fans.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Leach also had 3 interceptions||
Leach got to be okay passing by his senior year but never did get over 50% accuracy for his career.
I think I was at this game. I don't think it was until '77 or '78 that my dad bought four season tickets instead of two; up until then he alternated taking me and my brother to non-Ohio State games and my mother to the Ohio State game.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||This gets us access to the critical Mountain West market||
You know Delany wants to.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||I missed this play when it happened||
I had been drinking, I thought there'd be a commercial break and then Minnesota would kick a field goal. I mean, why wouldn't they? Michigan's backup quarterback hadn't looked all that good except for the touchdown and the two-point conversion and they still had their starter in.
So I answered the call of nature and when I came back downstairs the clock was at zero and the scoreboard showed Michigan on top.
|17 weeks 2 hours ago||I like the wrestling analogies||
And to be honest I've never actually watched more than a minute or two of pro wrestling (and probably never will). Go figure.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||That would be hilarious||
This will almost definitely give Franklin more time in Happy Valley, which is probably good.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Benefiber? Bah||
I turned 50 this year. The prep for my doctor's special 50th birthday present involved a gallon of laxative. Woo hoo.
(The actual present wasn't bad--thanks to the anesthesiologist.)
