"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

if DB were still around, it would be the <insert name> burial plot at Michigan Stadium, Presented by Pfizer or something.
|4 days 2 hours ago||I remember||
the days when Michigan hosting regionals was the norm. Back then only 8 regionals of 4 teams.

highly technical, incredible talent to drive those things.
But the sport is the most boring form of auto racing around. Watch any race, its frequently over in qualifying and you'll be lucky to see one pass for a lead during the actual race. The broadcasts spend most of the time watching some battle for 5th thru 7th places because the race is so god damn boring up front. Races are decided by if the car is reliable enough rather than actual driver skill.
You literally see more action in one Nascar race than you do in an entire season of F1.
Now your F1 advertisement, watch Monaco this weekend. Incredible, iconic track.

alreayd in the low 50's. Yes it is chilly and with clearing skies will only get cooler. Expect this one to finish in the 40's
|1 week 17 hours ago||it might have been 62||
at first pitch, but its down to 54 in 1 inning and there's been a little breeze most of the night. With clear to clearing skies this one will finish in the forties.
So yes, Chilly.

I won't argue that overall talent production is down because that's true, but thats more of a population problem than a development problem.
Amir Williams, Anthony Clemmens, Monte Morris, James Young.
All top talented kids from Michigan who went elsewhere. Either Michigan and Michigan State didn't do enough to attract these kids or they couldn't match what the other schools had to offer (OSU, Iowa, Iowa State, Kentucky)
Top 150 Rivals from state of Michigan
Deyonte Davis-Michigan State
Darrell Davis - Dayton
Monte Morris-Iowa State
EC Matthews- Rhode Island
Denzel Valentine-Michigan State
Matt Costello-Michigan State
Jordan Hare-Rhode Island
Sheron Dorsey-Walker-Iowa State
That's not recruiting your own State very well.
|1 week 4 days ago||"best facilities in the nation" "by far"||
you need to get out more. Many sports they aren't, or will even be the best the Big Ten when they are finished upgrading.
I give DB credit for recognizing Michigan needed to upgrade its facilities, in some cases badly. He went out, put together a plan, raised money and marketed that plan to alumni in the most DB way possible. Good for him and Michigan but nowhere near the best in the country.

is a step forward, adding a 6th foul would be a step back to the point it would almost nullify any gains in possessions made by a shorter shot clock.
No one ever addresses one of the primary reasons scoring is down and that trasition defense, which has become excellent. Almost no one tries to run anymore mostly because you can't. There isn't an easy, or any fix for this really.
Reducing timeouts by one still leaves 6 TV timeouts and 10 team timeouts. Still way too many.
Not a fan of the women's game going to four 10 minute quarters either.
|1 week 4 days ago||Mad props for those||
who tailgate regularly. Tried to do a proper one years ago and couldn't believe all the work and money that went into it. Not to mention the extra time involved.
My longish drive (actually 1/2 what it used to be now, kept me from doing it again.) I'm an in and out no muss, no fuss kind of football watcher.

part of these losses is not that they left, its where they ended up and at what level.
Jesus, what awful recruiting and talent evaluation
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||after losing||
by a similar scenario to Iowa the year before Iowa City.
Vivid memories of that game. For one I was 16 and it was the first time I was able to drive to a game by myself. Mom and Dad couldn't go that weekend and left the tickets with me and younger bro. Amazing game, one of many between Bo and Hayden during that run.

congratulations on being the first and likely only blog in the blip of human history to contain a thread on jorts and time travel/light speed.

more than one final, perhaps he is suspended until he completes those finals and Norfleet has no intention of completeing those finals. Hence the "dismissed" from Norfleet.

bad to not make a bowl these days.
I remember when 6-5 wasn't a sure thing, and crap teams from the mid-majors had almost no shot at a bowl game.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Kzoo promise is paid for||
by donors. Never made public but the who's who of the wealthy in Kalamazoo and you can bet Stryker, Gilmore's and Upjohns have a large stake in the promise.
Originially the promise was for 'public' colleges and universities but they've opened that up to Michigan's private colleges as well.
They have no trouble paying those bills.
