|20 hours 20 min ago||I'm going out on a limb||
and accusing the author of recency bias.
I wasn't there for these, but Yost 1901-26, or stretch it to include Kipke's good years, out to 1933, was an epic stretch. I also think Crisler (this is an interesting hire story, with AD Yost giving Crisler, reluctant to leave Princeton, everything he asked) and early Oosterbaan, '38-48, was a quality stretch with two MNCs, although it took Crisler 6 years to figure out Bernie Bierman and the Gophers and take UM out from under Minnesota's shadow. (Bierman was there for the decline and fall of Kipke.) Crisler's early Gopher problems remind me of the early stretch Bo slogged through against Woody from 1972-75.
I would have called it "Michigan Football's Great Era." As Harbaugh said at his introductory presser, you don't compare great to great.

I think, in 40 years.
It was, I believe, in the possession of a fairly definitive nerd at Georgia Tech ca. 1975.
How old you say you are, again?

My head had just stopped aching from my attempts to wrap it around that number.

I thought "dirty laundry" and "dirty linens" were just metaphors.

the more problems he causes.
|21 hours 42 min ago||Too soon.||
|22 hours 30 min ago||I regularly talk him up||
for abstaining from the Sabin/Miles SEC oversigning school of ethics.
I don't know how much this has to do with keeping him perpetually one step away from championship status. If this is the price, I think it's worth it. I'm not a die-hard GA fan, though, so I'm not the one suffering.
Does the Florida guy look a little like D.J. Durkin?

The opportunity was irresistible.

Now, votes are all stolen by computer.

the Baylor Bear would do that standing up.
Someone might think he was dancing.

This falls afoul of a popular convention here of "no religion."
I will be "revising my hypotheses."
|4 days 12 hours ago||I thought||
even a tire fire in a molten glass ashtray should have gotten a fourth year, because the worst thing would be UM acting like ND.
I wasn't quite ready to forgive Harbaugh's '07 remarks and DUI in '11, although I was starting to come around.
The long strange journey from '07 Appy State to now has sandblasted quite a few of my ideas about what is best for Michigan football.
|4 days 13 hours ago||Wierd, but true.||
In what other connection will you get grown men to parse between scarlet, garnet, crimson, cardinal, maroon, (or heliotrope and puce, per Purchase College ca. 1975) and more?

But what rhymes with "Shanecussionghazi?"

how to hire Harbaugh.

you don't think I've worn my 15 minutes out yet.

Number 2 on your list was covered starting in 2011. They were just called "the Syrian resistance" then.

I'll fit this in here -- this is my email exchange from 2010, with an introductory note to Brian:
I suppose it's a rare privilege for a member of the general public to get to interact so directly with someone at that level, but this one galls me all the more now:

he doesn't need a map to find his way around Ann Arbor.
|1 week 13 hours ago||"Michigan Man" is||
like the word "Evil." Stupid, bigoted, clueless, small-minded, cowardly, vicious, vindictive, unjustifiably complacent, intellectually dishonest and vile-tempered bags of snot are just as easily capable of pronouncing or printing the term and, often enough to be confusing, using it as the correct part of speech in a complete sentence as is anyone else.
Therefore, it is rendered only contextually relevent, and its correct use in a sentence is, in and of itself, no proof of the existence of intelligent life.

are people, too!"
Did you make that up? If I want to use that as a signature line, how should I cite it?
|1 week 1 day ago||After all,||
we played OSU/Meyer improbably close twice with Hoke and with a QB in traction.
The secret is supposed to have been Mattison's stunting of DL formations to break up OSU's run game. We should still have that going for us, and a lot more.
|1 week 1 day ago||I still||
have happier memories of 1995 and 1996 than of 2006 or 1972-3-4-5.

would not have gone to a bowl even if they had won.
Neither would Michigan if they had won the following year.
1972 (1973 Rose bowl) was the first year a Big Ten team could have repeated.
As we all know, 1973 (1974 Rose Bowl) was the first year any Big Ten team did.

But the Buddy Rich tapes, I think, rank at this level:
I think the worst, though, would be "The AD and I were looking at game film together,"
