ShaggyTexas used to be ShaggyBevo, with Bevo being the Texas Longhorn's mascot. Texas AD Steve Patterson (Basically their Dave Brandon) went around crushing fan usage of copywrited names, including them. I imagine that's at least part of where the lawyers came in.

Wow, the Texas forum member they're crediting with blowing everything up, THujone, is the guy that does Prevail and Ride, the hilarious (and phallus-filled) collection of MS Paint college football comics. Doing the lord's work, truly.

What are people saying about Jake Rudock compared to the other Big 10 QBs that are getting trashed (Cardale Jones, Connor Cook, Hackenberg)? I'd love to see him get drafted above one or more of those guys.

This is what I'm expecting as well. "Okay, we shut down Harbaugh but we also screwed over a bunch of little guys and generated some horrible PR in the process. So how to we keep Harbaugh in check but fix that?"

Okay, but what if Stephen M. Ross establishes that he buys million dollar t-shirts of every consensus five-star recruit that ends up playing for Michigan? He doesn't have to make any specific communications to Rashan Gary, he just lets his actions speak for themselves.

We really need to learn the details of this Forklift V. Drake Johnson situation, especially if the part of the rumor that he was stretching at the time is true. Like... why was Drake Johnson stretching near an active forklift (or, why was an active forklift going where Drake Johnson was stretching)? How does a person get run over by a vehicle that weighs more than a car only get bruised?

That's fair enough, but eventually you run into certain hard limits of physics. I haven't crunched the numbers but I think the super laser would require atomic-scale precision. Which... good luck with that.
Unless you find a way to "cheat" (ie if we figure out a way to make warp drive feasible) there are certain things that can't be avoided just by hand-waving "technology will have to get better".

That might work, especially if you reconfigured the giant space laser to emit focused unicorn power.

1. tracking a target the size of a postage stamp as you accelerate it away to relativistic speeds would be impossible even with Star Trek level technology.
2. creating a laser with the precision, power, and limited beam divergence (how much the spot size expands the further from the laser you get) to hit a target hundreds of thousands of miles away would be impossible.
3. Creating an electronic device that could handle the proposed acceleration would be impossible with anything near current technology.
4. Creating an electronic device that could withstand the proposed laser energy and be pushed by it rather than obliterated would be impossible with anything near current technology.
5. Creating a device with a powerful enough set of sensors and communication devices to tell us anything by the time it's any appreciable distance away, yet remains the size of a postage stamp, would be impossible with anything near current technology and probably just plain violates the laws of thermodynamics.
And that's just off the top of my head.

As someone who works with lasers, there are so many things wrong with this idea I don't even know where to begin.

Colorado hasn't been good at a major sport for 20 years, unless I'm forgetting something. I guess they're trying to just spent their way back into relevence?

Has anyone seen the rules for the spring game? ie how close it will be to an actual game versus a series of scrimmage plays?

What's your source on this, OP? Both the fact that he's back and the claim that he was forced out.

Such a weird thing to get a tattoo of. They finished that season 7-5. We finished 7-6. Both teams turned in a season everyone involved would like to forget.
I could see if it was a national championship winning catch, or if undefeated Michigan was playing undefeated Ohio State and you made the winning catch, but this I just don't get.
EDIT: and we're not talking about a game winning catch. We're talking about a catch that SET UP a touchdown that tied it late. Then Michigan failed to score in the remaining regulation. Then we played 4 overtimes.

You ever get the feeling that most of the people associated with SEC football (coaches, writers, fans, etc) have never visited anywhere north of the Mason-Dixon line? It's not actually Hoth, guys.

Dantonio's quote was implying that they could recruit better than Michigan because they were selling Results instead of Hope. Michigan just outrecruited Michigan State, so in essense we just did "win" within the context. Jay's not saying we beat State, Jay's saying we can sell our programs to recruits better than State can even if we don't have as much recent success to point to.

Maine - Mostly bitterness from University of Maine graduates who can't refer to their school as "The U of M" without confusion.

Head on over to Black Shoe Diaries if you want to see some sour grapes. Here's my favorite comment:
"At this point, I’m hoping Harbaugh experiences enough quick success at Michigan simply so he is lured back into the pros."

Unfortunately I failed to win any of the other five balls. So I won $4. Also I spent $4 on lottery tickets this week.

"Rudock was fantastic when targeting receivers at least 10 yards downfield... including a perfect 3-of-3 on deep passes"
Do you guys remember the first half of the season? No, me neither.
