I need to save this for the next time someone says Harbaugh is an attention seeker. Dude changes his pants and it's news on ESPN. It's not like he can control this stuff.

You nailed it. The whole game just felt "off." That was my only concern heading in to the game. What would a few days back on campus do to their mojo? Moe was not himself and the team just felt out of sync.
Oh well. Awesome season nonetheless. Banners are cool.

Very thankful he said "peanuts" and not "nuts."

Notice I said "meaningless early season game." Just a tad bit different than the National Championship.

I kinda doubt they care about a somewhat meaningless early season game from 2 years ago

Great stuff, Ace. Nice to see Beilein's Heisenberg side.

If we lose in the first round it will be a very dispointing end to the season. But in the long term, this is going to be remembered as a successful season.

As others have pointed out, this was very predictable. When people were telling me that it was weird to have Jumpman on a football uniform I told them to wait a couple years. Jordan is making a push into football. More schools will follow and it will be very normal to see the logo along football stuff.

BiSB pointed this out on Twitter, but it's interesting how Dantonio starts off using "I" and "my," but when he starts talking about the trouble it turns to "we" and "our."

Got a couple from QD last night. I've never tasted a flavor I didn't like, but went with lemon and blueberry this time.

"I wouldn't be able to wear them"
Yeah I hear the fine for wearing Jordan to a softball game is pretty steep

You could have taken them down from the inside. Use money from a pro-OSU business to buy gobs of UM merchandise.

I worked at the parking ramp at LCC. Sat in a tiny booth for 4 hours a day between classes and did homework/browsed the web.
My one anecdote is the day I gave Fred Heumann a ticket for like $2. We only took cash and he didn't have any. Only way I could let him out was writing a ticket. He didn't love that.

Those are pretty sweet
Edit: Here they are. Available March 7th. $160.

Yep. Big corporations tend to not look at the big picture. It's the same reason why commercials have gotten so bad. They stuffed as many ads as they possibly could into games and only when subscribers started dropping like flies did they think about fixing it.
Officiating will get worse and worse and they won't fix it until they've already lost a lot of fans.

I thought this tweet was a great point about the refs. Why do they get to completely change the outcome of a game and then just disapear into the night afterward? That's unacceptable. If a coach can be fined for criticizing the refs there needs to be some accountability going in the other direction as well.

It's not that the slogan can't technically work with Gophers. I think RTB is more associated with WMU than it is with Fleck. They had oars on their uniform, for example.
I don't think of EUTM as a rallying cry like RTB. A better comparison would be trying to take "The Team, The Team, The Team" to a different school.

I get that. Its 100% his creation. But it's not going to have the same effect at Minnesota.

Should have left it at WMU. It won't sound the same at Minnesota.

Man, #4 is a sweet camera angle. I don't remember seeing that during the game.

Putting wheels on a house doesn't make it more environmentally and socially responsible. The same thing can be achieved with a regular 'ol small house. Your options are not limited to Earth-killing mansion or glorified RV.

Sooo...should we do that in this thread?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Comcast internet is not||
Comcast internet is not Comcast TV. They allow you to stream it because you pay for the channel. If you stop paying for the channel you won't be able to stream it.
As for stick vs player, a player is always going to be better because it will have better specs than what they can cram in a low-cost stick. Both should work though.

You should always include /s. It's very hard to read sarcasm in text unless it's really on the nose.

Oh man, I remember that 2002 MSU game vividly. I was still in school and I would scribble "49-3" stealthily in all of my MSU friends' notebooks.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Stuff like this is always||
Stuff like this is always going to be in officiating as long as we have humans doing it. We all have built-in biases. Refs don't want to get yelled at. They can pretend to ignore it or tell themselves it doesn't factor into a call, but they're human.
Same can be said for all of us. A U-M fan and an OSU fan can watch the exact same play and see different outcomes. That's why you can't have refs from Ohio working the OSU game. On some level they are biased towards Ohio, even if it's not a conscious effort. It happens in every game. Tiny little biases affect calls like that.

I'm a thin guy. Usually go for L Slim or L Tall, but regular L fits fine.
