|1 week 6 days ago||Most of the "breakdowns"||
in our much-maligned RR-era defense started with his vaunted O handing the ball over to quality opponents on the M side of the field and generally just not keeping up, or frequently, against opponents like MSU/'10 or Wiscy/'10, just never really showing up at all.
I say this as one of those people who thought ditching RR after three years would only consolidate our progress toward becoming the tire fire ND was for 20 years before hiring Kelley. Hope I'm wrong, but it is six years and counting.
|1 week 6 days ago||There is something unsettling||
about weaving dreams out of reports that Harbaugh isn't getting along with his players. It seems like a first step in the wrong direction.
|1 week 6 days ago||Poz||
for Groucho Marx reference.
|1 week 6 days ago||Makes me||
want to punch a dolphin.
|1 week 6 days ago||Last night's game||
just didn't put me in the mood.
Besides which, I watched it at a night club, and I don't think the employees and other patrons would have stood for it.
|1 week 6 days ago||You have||
to HEAR it.
|1 week 6 days ago||"You're Fired (tm)."||
How about making a reality show out of M's next AD and football HC hires? I'll bet they would make great TV; if life hands you lemons . . . .
|1 week 6 days ago||I never liked the idea||
of un-retiring numbers after 70 years in the first place.
It seems to defeat the point of retiring them.
What's wrong with letting an outstanding player newly immortalize whatever number they happen to be wearing?
That said, let's not do anything with numbers already in play this year; 37-0 is enough of a psychological hurdle to get over.
But this business of not being able to tell any more if a retired number is retired or not just shows that David Brandon doesn't get it, doesn't understand the tradition and isn't a real Michigan man (ducks).
|1 week 6 days ago||I bet I could;||
but if I try, it hurts.
|1 week 6 days ago||I like wanking||
to the '95 and '96 OSU games, myself.
I can't do it for too long, though, because the computer starts to look like a freshly-toasted Pop Tart and I can't see the game.
|1 week 6 days ago||That is very Zen.||
Or fucked-up; I don't know which.
I don't know if it matters which it is.
|1 week 6 days ago||Well,||
can we spread the UFR over 50 days?
|1 week 6 days ago||Tsar Bomba,||
|1 week 6 days ago||After the jabs at Hart in '07,||
it hurts to say this, but how about Dantonio AND Narduzzi?
|1 week 6 days ago||I must have asked this before,||
but how do you steal a firepit?
|1 week 6 days ago||Sarcasm||
doesn't seem to work as well these days, although it has always been a calculated risk.
|1 week 6 days ago||Always wait 4 hours||
after sustaining blunt force trauma before trying to extrapolate the future.
|1 week 6 days ago||Except||
for identifiable individual failures, the o-line seemed actually not hopeless.
I was actually at a loss to understand how we went down 37-0.
I have to go away now and let this sink in.
|1 week 6 days ago||Poz||
for Highway 61 Revisited reference.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||I will||
PLUCK YOUR BEAK!
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||I think "Counterpunt"||
is obligated to contradict "Punt." It's like a class debate.
I'm sure Heiko doesn't believe a word of what he said; he's just making a convincing argument for the improbable.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||"Alouette"||
is also a word for "small lark," as in the eponymous children's song ("Je te plumerais").
I learned the words to the song at Thurston elementary ca. 1967, which was also the year of Expo '67 in Montreal. Based on this slim evidence, I'm going to venture that "alouette" was a lyric in a francophone children's song before it was the name of a creamy cheese spread in Montreal, but I welcome better-informed observations.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Ditto||
for the beginning of the AstroTurf era, 1969.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I agreed with him||
for the most part RE Michael Rosenberg, but I'm not sure he ever made the distinction between an educational institution administrative action and a criminal proceeding.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I make my excuse for a living||
with my fingers, so I had to say something --
I've heard too many horror stories to EVER stick my fingers inside a blender while it is still plugged in. Better to damage the blender or a spoon than to accomplish a digitectomy.
That aside, Bravo.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I still||
don't quite see Michigan going undefeated.
As Teddy Kennedy used to say, we'll drive off that bridge when we get to it. (National Lampoon joke; I'm not expressing any partisan affiliation beyond that for Michigan.)
|2 weeks 1 day ago||"Accept"||
is spelled correctly.
When referring to someone else's usage of it, you should probably wrap it in quotation marks.
I would only call it "accurate" if it was functioning as an adjective.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||This is where||
I learn all my current events.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Yup.||
It's especially satisfying to see other comedy professionals thoroughly annihilated by a performance like this one.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||And if||
you're T Rex or Bing Crosby, don't sing with David Bowie.
