|1 week 1 day ago||Now that you bring it up,||
Hand didn't commit to OSU.
Maybe we can get Jordan Morgan to talk to recruits about the UM engineering dept.
|1 week 2 days ago||Better||
fake and only relative than a totalitarian mandate of fakeness.
Or do you believe might makes right?
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||FWIW,||
I'm pretty certain this is not "OT."
This is cherry-picking, but I think Hoke is down a point in the soundbite wars with our southern rivals, to wit:
If there exists a level of program-building that goes beyond recruiting and developing players and waiting for them to mature, ie, building relationships with the fan base, it could well be that the bad guys are doing this better than ours are.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||That was posted on||
April Fools', wasn't it? I'm still not sure if that was for real.
Also, while we're early in the usage development cycle, I'm wondering if the gerund "apostrophe-s'ing" shouldn't actually be spelled ""'s"-ing." (The Chicago style use of quotation marks makes that more confusing than I thought it would be. I'm also wondering, should a literal including double quotation marks be inside single quotation marks or doubles?)

So who knows what to believe.

I get a déjà vu feeling seeing this. IF this is true, there is an earlier similar.
When Hoke came here in '11, part of his narrative was the lesson he learned from the first two losses of the '98 season to the returning '97 1/2 MNC team. He said this was on him, because he had taken the '97 success for granted, and neglected DL basics. From what I think is a more recent source (
This story is nothing new; he made no bones about it when he came here in '11. The disarming honesty was a part of his charm.
I'm no hater; if his UM team kicks ass in 2014, none will be happier than I. In Hoke we Hope; In Nuss we Trus'.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I thought||
the maligned D of '10 was made to look worse by problems on O -- turnovers in the wrong red zone, scoring droughts, etc.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||It's all about punctuation.||
Saban actually said
|2 weeks 4 days ago||So||
they're talking about their home schedule.
Edit: I wouldn't capitalize "Tide" in that quotation after 2012.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||"Their country . . .||
I think they are 40 years behind the Oakland Raiders, if Vera Cruz is any indication.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||For Texas,||
Tijuana makes more sense.

|2 weeks 4 days ago||"cross-marketing"||
You mean "cross-dress marketing."
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This will help||
with recruiting in Arabia.
When's the last time anybody played Toronto?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This is Michigan.||
We don't get sad.
We get fatalistic.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Is that||
supposed to cheer me up?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Just what . . .|
|2 weeks 4 days ago||"At least||
we're beating ND most years, even though, over-all, we're doing worse than they are."
Doesn't work as a sound-bite. Damn nuance.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||"This century."||
Now you're being theatrical.
"This century," ie, since 1914, UM has been in and out of the Western Conference (aka b1g), built the largest stadium in CFB, invented the iconic winged helmet, and opened a huge lead in the all-time series v. OSU, Michigan Agricultural (aka MSU) and ND, while our biggest rival, U-Chichago, has vanished. All this while weathering a much bigger funk v. MSU from ca. 1951-1969.
If "this century" is bumming you, consider a switch to the Mosaic Calendar.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I was||
a pep-band scab (UM dragooned the pep band from Ga. State University for the first weekend at the OMNI in Atlanta) for UM that year. My first Dead concert was 6-20-92 at RFK. Even spread out over 3 years, that was a special run of goodness.
I think you should drop the "OT"; this sounds very "T" to me.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Haven't seen this clip||
I was going to respond with an imbed of a 50-second YouTube football clip from the 1970 film MASH, but it "contains content from FOX, who has blocked it on copyright grounds."
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Got me to looking||
and M came in at #44 last year. 2006 M was #7, and 2007 M was #21 while Florida was #10 after getting pushed around in the Cap-One Bowl. This makes me somewhat dubious of the Sagarin ranking.
Hopefully there is a Nuss effect and we don't go back to biting fingernails when playing supposed tomato cans.

is in the Braves market area (Atlanta-Athens).
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Didn't we say that||
|2 weeks 5 days ago||But how can||
EVERYONE schedule someone 10 times worse than they are?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||That's||
a conference game. They made us do it. Blame Delaney.
And lets wait til after Appy II before we start calling it a mismatch.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||And||
Appy State with Alabama. What could go wrong?
80's -- I wouldn't mind the 1980s over again. But no more losses to teams from states beginning with "I."
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The defense||
succeeded in making a lot of stops also; I don't know that a different approach would have "netted" out any better.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I may have caused that.||
During that Lou Holtz stretch, I kept saying "PLEASE all I care about is beat that damn team once," and now we are reaping the whirlwind.
