have opening in every schedule from 2018 through the end of time.

I suggest that a pro-DB version would make for a much more damaging mental image.
|20 hours 29 min ago||Did you pitch for the Tigers bullpen?||
Oh, IRA. I thought you said ERA.
|20 hours 32 min ago||That's how everyone's taxes work||
You pay taxes based on where you earn your money. It just so happens that pro athletes earn their money in a bunch of places every year.
|20 hours 47 min ago||I think the point||
Is that while McShay may not know everything, when it comes to draft predictions he probably knows WAY more than you, and me, and most people.
The one-eyed man is king in the world of Teh Internetz.

That's not true. I'm on record as being pretty strongly in the BORGES ARRRRGGGG crowd, but you can think he was bad and still want to keep him. It is possible to think that once he has a better line, his stuff will work. It's possible to not be enthralled with Borges, but to not be sure who we could get right now that would be better. It's even possible to WANT to get rid of Borges, but to not be willing to absorb the transition costs associated with making the move.
It's the backup QB/backup goalie syndrome. If the starter is struggling, you can recognize his struggles while still running him out there for every game. It's not logically inconsistant.
|1 day 19 hours ago||I'm sorry||
You lost me at "Bleacher Report."
Also, there's a reason he left MSU. And there's a reason he was just fired at Miami (NTM). I'm not a huge Borges guy... but DON TREADWELL?
|1 day 19 hours ago||Thank you||
Michigan doesn't exist on a separate plane from other schools. Michigan doesn't play on a different field than other schools. Michigan doesn't recruit in a different universe from other schools. "This is Michigan" is a fine mantra, but it's not a substantive thing.
There seems to be a sizeable portion of people who believe that RichRod failed because he didn't understand that This Is Michigan, and that Hoke succeeded in '11 because he DID understand it. And that is steaming bullshit. Michigan succeeds and fails for the same reasons other teams succeed and fail; talent, experience, playcalling, player execution, luck, etc. Believe it or not, other teams have rich traditions, solid coaching staffs, and first-rate facilities. Michigan has some advantages when it comes to recruiting, but not the kind of universal trump card people seem to claim.
There isn't a Deus Ex Machina source of power and success that the coaches sometimes ignore or fail to tap. They're running in the same race as everyone else.

George wants to look around, eh? Does that make him... Curious George?
Hahahaha see what I did there because his name is George and [/dies a little inside].
|2 days 13 hours ago||Agreed||
And rest assured, any "good" or "he deserves it" crap will be pulled.

Have you seen how they prepare the chicken at that restaurant?
|2 days 14 hours ago||I dunno||
He was injured, probably painfully, through no fault of his own. Probably not the ideal fodder for humor.
That said, he appears to be okay, so one teensy little "hot takes" joke won't hurt.
|2 days 14 hours ago||That was my thought||
I mean, did their insurance company ever ask "do you ever pour flammable liquids on hot surfaces in the middle of the goddamn restaurant?"
The "oh, I'm sorry, usually I'm slightly farther away before INITIATING THE INDOOR FIREBALL" defense is a notoriously weak one.

|3 days 17 hours ago||Wow||
I didn't realize it, but you're right. He doesn't appear in the player participation sheets of any game this year.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Agree and disagree||
Obviously low attrition is good, but a little attrition is almost unavoidable, and can be healthy for both parties. I wouldn't read anything into a few guys leaving for various reasons (playing time, homesickness, general discontent, etc.). The levels of stability the team has had in the last couple of years are unrealistically and unsustainably low.
|6 days 14 hours ago||Nope||
Even with the penalty, we're still 21 yards short of Hoffman's total.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Coaches:||
They'll be all over your diBACK I SAID BACK.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Eh||
The requirement is a general blase attitude towards personal grooming. The beard is just the easiest way to demonstrate it.

(and Nebraska didn't look like world-beaters in their first three games), if the argument is that Nebraska can be players when they have a 4-year-starting senior under center, that doesn't tell me much other than that they can occasionally jump up with the elites.
|1 week 17 hours ago||That exists||
But you have to fit your foot into the USB port

Clemson kicks a field goal in their possession. Ohio State throws a pick-six. And Clemson insists on going for two.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Sure, it's possible||
But they have lost at least 4 games every year for the last 10 years. Their coach probably won't be there in a couple of years. They certainly have the potential, but they aren't trending in a super-positive direction.
|1 week 17 hours ago||I will say||
That some people are just too far into Bolivia to be extracted by traditional means. However, if a good-faith effort is made, we shall consider your pleas.
|1 week 18 hours ago||Mediocrity?||
Mediocrity is a long way off. Can you see it way out there, Tim?
Tim can't see it way out there.
|1 week 18 hours ago||Oops||
I mean, doesn't EVERYONE do the thing where if your rival school is Such-and-Such State, you just drop the "State" part to demean them? No?
|1 week 18 hours ago||No||
No, Col. Sanders. You're wrong.
|1 week 18 hours ago||Thanks||
But alas, if my snark drops below 50 MPH, the bus will explode.
