is from a comment posted to Brian's "Destroy Harbaugh" thread from August '07/March '08. This was before sign-up was instituted and many comments were anonymous. I don't think the writer of these words has ever been identified. I have never heard another assessment of old #4 quite like it.
I too have been carrying the memory of that comment to some extent with me ever since. I am more or less reconciled by now.

|1 week 3 days ago||Deceptive statistics.||
The political boundaries of American cities are anachronistically frozen at about their 1900-WWII extent; since then neighboring areas, generally relatively well-to-do, have resisted incorporation for tax and other reasons. The population within those anachronistic boundaries is correspondingly deceptively small. The real measure of a city's size is its Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA).
Taking just Buffalo as an example, per WIKI,
|1 week 4 days ago||I think||
the Mail's ranking is sort of deceptive since it makes no account of the size of the population of the student body at each school.
Judging by this and the other headlines, I think the editors at the Mail are lazy, looking for shock value, and bored with the idea of upholding journalistic standards. This is what I had always heard; now I suspect I have been hearing correctly.
Speaking of Georgia State University (#5 on the list), I was once able to get through several years of it at $15/qtr.-hr with only a part-time+ warehouse job to pay for school and make ends meet. How things have changed. For the better, I guess, if you are a lonely, wealthy, 60-ish man with an itch.

is about how the News selected a headline from the context of the article; it's a matter of emphasis.
Imagine how it would go down if Obama chose a visit to the White House by Bono or a championship football team as the occasion to remind everyone that there is nothing in the US Constitution about the NFL or rock'n'roll.

I have not yet seen anyone speculate what would have happened had Harbaugh coached Denard. Maybe it's just too unreal to even imagine.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||If we could only pair you up||
to discuss offensive schemes and maximum utilization of existing resources with those who even now still excoriate RR for not building his offensive scheme in 2008 around the existing skill sets of Steven Threet and Nick Sheridan to produce the expected and customary twelve-win season.

|3 weeks 3 days ago||Although the critical point||
is only clear in hindsight, I would place thehigh-water mark and U-turn into the wilderness at the evening hours of November 17, 2006. The Horror was the Horror in part because it signalled the absence of a quick reversal of the unpleasant trajectory established by the last two games of 2006.
I also don't think you can say "enter Jim Hackett" without pointing to the presence of a stalwart Michigan Man hiding in the shadows and stepping in at the point when the plot had taken the darkest turns in order to produce Hackett as a deus ex machina. That man you haven't mentioned is President Mark Schlissel, whose qualities were doubted at the time by many who thought he wouldn't have what it takes to right the ship.
Right now UM is represented by three who have amply demonstrated they get it -- JH, JH, and Schlissel. The dizzying reversal of fortune since September 30 started with Schlissel standing alone against the turmoil.

After all, Bacon had an ultra-inside relationship with Bo and still had his pass pulled by Brandon. Although Bo was no longer there.
I'm still hoping for recognition along the lines of "Dickhead Emeritus", or at least a cordon of "Donkey-Puncher" pickets around Schembechler every time MR comes rolling in in his SI stagecoach.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I wonder if MR||
was just changing tack to stay with changing times at the UM AD; Brandon's Hoke-era rhetoric was vaguely consistant with MR's anti-RR jihad.
Regardless, MR at Schembechler Hall is still perplexing and confusing.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||It should be||
RSVP, because we've never had an opportunity to ascertain whether he to this day has a clue about it.
To be fair to MR (/ducks), there seem to be other writers, like this one guy writing for WSJ, I think it was, who similarly seem to have no idea how much college football players actually work.
(I think it was in an article "Three reasons JH should stay in the NFL" or something similar, and the guy quoted the 20 countable hours out of somewhere. Only a veteran of the Freep Wars would probably by now know or care, I suppose.)

If Schlissel wasn't familiar with this concept last July, he certainly absorbed it heart, mind and soul in plenty of time to act with decisive authority and velvet touch when circumstances mandated it.
It may not hurt that he was hearing it in a three-dimensional matrix of voices that included billionaire alums and lowly (self-appointed?) elevator operators at the Thompson St parking structure.

|3 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for the warning.||
I wouldn't mind seeing Rosenberg's press pass pulled the same way Brandon did Bacon's.
I have to wonder what the relationship was involving MR, Brandon and Hoke that led to MR getting an exclusive interview with Hoke last August.

He weighed in right away on the Morris fiasco, thus steadying the ship by implying that adults were ultimately in charge.
And he had Hackett ready to go the minute Brandon was released. So far, despite the similarity of Hackett's background to Brandon's, he has been the opposite of everything we have come to dread about folks in charge RE crucial processes such as an HC hire. Hackett was also Schlissel's call.

I would think the most revenue-affirmative thing to do would be to walk back the steps that evaporated a 300,000-fan season ticket wait list, for starters. It sounds like you would like to blame Brian for destroying the wait list, or maybe blame the fans for abandoning a game experience featuring a wretched HC hire and contemptuous degradation of the game-day experience and abandonment of the 130-year tradition that filled the stadium in the first place to boot.

2006 UM had had a chance to settle things with 2006 UF in a four-game playoff?
Sort of OT, I know, but better here than in a new thread.

BTW, 1974, Lantry should have kicked that field goal lower to the ground so the OSU refs couldn't lie about it.
I'll never get over that damn field goal.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||What if||
the 1899 University of Chicago team played its 2014 schedule?
They wouldn't get to 16 wins, for one thing.
And they never heard of the forward pass. Or down markers.
And if they only got 5 points for a touchdown, it would make it harder to compete with today's teams.
But they were tough.
I think it depends on whether it's the 1899 team as it was then, or the actual members of that team as they are today.

Even Cap'n Crunch gets soggy after a while.
This is after starting out a little too crunchy.
There's a perfect window during which you have to wolf them all down.

But look at Tom Brady.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I thought, from the title,||
a that the OP intended to put 1997 CFB teams through 2014-era bracketology process.
In other words, 1997 UM would finally get to settle it on the field vs. 1997 Nebraska.
This is one thought experiment I've been unconsciously seduced into from time to time.
I think Judgement Day UM would have vaporized the Nebraska team that showed up to play Missouri on 11-8-97, but not so sure the Rose Bowl UM that beat WSU by 5 would have done the same to the Nebraska team that crushed Peyton Manning 42-17.
If 1997 had had a 4-team playoff, would UM be the undisputed MNC of that year? I think this is a more interesting question.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||What about film?||
Are the '97 Wolverines imported from 1997 for 4 hours at a time just for the games, or do they spend the whole season in 2014 so they can game-plan around the game film?
What if 2008 Cap-1 Bowl Lloyd was coaching rather than Appy-State 2007 Lloyd?

But sometimes you just have to go ahead and use the "/s" to avoid misunderstanding.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe he means||
"retitling?" Like, another B1G title?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I don't know.||
It could still be sarcasm. He sounds like he's making fun of what I said all during the football season.

how old his firstborn is. Could be 30 by now.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I have mixed feelings||
about creeping elitism in general.
The land-grant tradition and historically widely available college education (in the '60s: US = ca. 50%; UK = ca. 10%) are two of the cornerstones of US democracy and the middle class.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I imagine||
she comes in young and naive, and oblivious to OSU's larger historical academic narrative.
She finds some statistics that, taken out of narrative context, sound provocative and contrarian, something all teenagers can get on board with.
She heads straight down to the student paper to Let The World Know.
And now she starts to learn about nuance.

I hope we don't break the next coach to come our way.

will just call him "MGoBlog."
|6 weeks 4 days ago||He's just promoting himself.||
He's flogging this story because he loves to listen to himself talk.

78% in the SEC West may equate with 87% to 100% in the B1G East.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||"doing more with less."||
I recall that was what had people excited about RR back in the day, albeit not at a marquee academic institution.
I don't think an M coach will have to do more with less; M recruits fine. Doing more with more will be adequate.
Let's just avoid people who can't do anything with anybody.

is sort of the way Snyder, "Do you have any idea what countable hours are?" Rosenberg and Sharp wrote back before that paper became dead to me.

that DB and Hoke welcomed him to a one-on-one interview with Hoke in August for SI.
I hope whatever inside culture glitch in the AD there was that permitted that to happen will be cleansed by fire so that we don't have to endure the sight of our AD coddling and cosying up to that faithless affront to human decency ever again.
