Personally, I would like to see someone attach a novelty hand to a headband, a ttatch a basketball to it, and dunk the ball by putting their head next to the rim.
|1 week 2 days ago||Teske block||
I love the Teske block given the larger context of the play. After the block, Michigan got a quick three point bucket. On the next Indiana possesition, one of the players went to drive to the basket, thought better of it, then passed to a player who missed. Michigan rebound.

I was wondering if it was just me. I was holding a fussy baby trying to get him to go to sleep, and I had the volume on low. Could not understand a word of what was being said.

That is so much better than they were a few years ago.

I think you also have to consider how many times Gary was a step behind one of the other D linemen who got the sack, or funneled a QB or RB to someone else who got the stat. Then there was all of those times Gary stretched a running play to the sideline for a no gain or a gain on 1 when a lesser player would have given up 5 or 6 yards. For a freshman playing with the rest of the nfl caliber d line I thought he did great, and only someone who quantifies plays by stats alone would think he did not have a great first year.

Sign idea for anyone going, "Kalamazoo, home to the second best team in Michigan."

My guess is that if they get the 2 point conversion, an on side kick run back wins the game

You can see the video after clicking the link at the bottom of the op post.
While I am sure I will get the terminology wrong, the chain gang is the three guys who mark the 10 yards from where the ball is on first down to 10 yards from there, connected by a chain. The thing they bring out to measure if the ball is close to a first down. Harbaugh was shown with the spot of the ball / down marker.
Pretty smart, he gets to be right on the sidelines with the players, though I am not sure if he would have been able to do that anyway

I love the volume levels of the crowd during the play. They are loud at the beginning of the play and then it seems over half are silent as the ball is in the air only to erupt after the interception is made.

I stood in front of my tv for the entire 4th quarter.

My guess was he was making a poorly framed history joke about how in Roman times Christians were fed to the lions for the amusement of those in the colosseum. You know, because his team was going to devour the helpless opposition.

Could be wrong but there is a possibility that she was talking about it with someone at school, and that person responded along the lines of "Do you know what would be funny, you should root for Michigan's rival just to see what he does." Kids like to push boundaries. If she thinks it's a big deal to you it may entrench her deeper. There are probably some mixed feelings for you at this point, so just have fun with it and remember that the feelings of a young girl are more important that sports rooting interests.

Has how well Jabrill Pepers has been playing at his new defensive position encouraged any high level recruits to take a more serious look at Michigan, someone who could effectively play that roll when Peppers is taken in the first round of the draft.

Michigan knocks out the opposing quarterbacks on the roster. They start awarding points for first downs. It still does not go well.

Before the concrete dries have the family each make a hand print. We did that at the house I grew up in and it is still there.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||I am sure he is the Butt of many jones||
I could be wrong but I am on mgoblog regularly and I don't remember seeing this. I am glad the family has a great sense of humor. I wonder if they are going to do this again for his NFL team when Butt gets drafted.

My sister in laws family is mostly made of buckeye fans. At a birthday party for my niece I gave my Michigan hat to the 5 year old daughter of the in laws to wear. She happy wore it around the house for a while until her older sister told her what it was. She then screamed and ran to her dad. He was upset at first until he was told what happened and then he laughed and complemented his daughter. Now he is trying the same thing with my kids, but they know better.

Of all the "... until we beat MSU and OSU" snark, this is my favorite. Well done. Mobile +1.

This may just be because he was Michigan's running back when I was in High School and my favorite player until Denard, (or maybe because he was amazing on my Playstation 1 NCAA Football game) but I would take Tyrone Wheatley over Mike Heart. I think among other things, Wheatley had better vision and definitely had much better speed.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||I loved Lost, until the final season||
My wife and I were really into Lost. I even listened to the Lost podcast where the writers talked about the show. There was a part of the podcast where they talked about how they loved Michigan. I clipped that part, and sent it to my brother who was a big fan of the show, but also likes Michigan State.

Every Monday, each team will be forced to play with a randomly selected fan from the stadium. They must play a minimum of six innings. Would love to see a five year old or Grandma Ruth out there trying to help their team.

I think there should be a league in Vegas where the players are encouraged to take HGH and steroids under a doctors care. Pitchers all throw over 100 and most players can hit 475 feet home runs.

Reminds me when I was drawing a picture a kid, I put lines behind something to show it was moving.
