I'm techno-old. So I can't tell you how to embed, though I suspect it's an easy trick to learn.
Absent that option, you could just post the link and give a timestamp to focus on.

Wait...you watched the OSU game...but not the Michigan game? On purpose?

Like Fickle going from interim to a permanently shared coordinator spot with schools always poaching his co-DC, never him, and Urban (successively) never thinking Fickle is enough to do the whole job himself?

The OP's yards per pass attempt (Rutgers) numbers are incorrect.
Rutgers didn't earn 2.0YPA. They earned 0.3YPA.

I went to upvote but my fat fingers did the opposite and apparently that's not reversible for me today. Just wanted to let you know.

"I'm confident about X" ≈ absolutely X. "I'll be surprised if not X" ≈ probably X.
It's splitting hairs, but that was my point.

It doesn't transfer into the transcript but the video of Harbaugh speaking about Mone and Charlton - with all his tone and pauses - appeared somewhere between "I'm confident they'll be back this season" and "I'll be surprised if they are not back this season."

FYI - Harbaugh is delivering his weekly presser right now, live on BTN. I don't have DVR to provide a proper quote but when addressing Mone and Charlton his words, pauses, and tone seemed to point toward both eventually being back this season but very noncommittal as to when.

I am unashamed to say I did not read the article. Thanks for doing the dirty work for us. :- )

These are undergrad rankings, I assume(?). I think Michigan has raised or held serve in every department/college except LS&A since I graduated. As of 2005, Michigan was rarely #1 among all publics, usually #2 behind Berkeley, and sometimes #3 behind Berkeley and UVa. Now it's sometimes #7? That's a sad situation.

Actually...it's not that often. They've only ever had two decades. The 1950s and now.

Always stand. It's great preventative medicine. DVTs are a dick.

|14 weeks 5 days ago||Two of the four bullets you||
Two of the four bullets you provide (loss of the 2016 and 2017 recruiting classes) only impact their future seasons, not this season.
As for the two bullets that impact this season:
(3) Grobe. It isn't unprecedented for terrible coaches to keep their new teams afloat for one or two years if they inherit a great team. Larry Coker used to be everybody's favorite example of that but Gene Chizik has since joined him. Heck, Malzahn seems to also be a pretty bad *head* coach, but even he got Auburn to the national title game in his first season. So I don't see Grobe catalyzing a massive failure to meet expectations. Especially since he's clearly gone after this year.
(4) Starting QB Transfer. If losing your starting quarterback mattered as much as that implied, then we'd be doomed.

The CIC has probably always been the most important outcome of the Big Ten's existence. But the OP is slightly mistaken. U-Chicago is no longer a member. That was just announced today and is a likely impetus for the name change. The likely impetus for U-Chicago leaving? That's hard to confirm; however, they did recently threaten to leave if the Big Ten ever accepted "another" non-AAU institution. So the issue appears to have been somewhat brought on by adding UNL.

This conversation always suffers terribly because we can't have it without talking about photographs taken from different cameras in different lighting viewed on different computer screens.
Also, the original maize was always slightly orange. The new jerseys only seem "wrong" by reference to the highlighter yellow that preceded them. In actuality, they are very close to the original maize.

3-4 days because I procrastinated before a neuroanatomy exam. The worst part was flying through material that I expected to hate but rapidly learned I loved and could never, studying like that, do justice.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Based on medical hardship||
Based on medical hardship history and depth chart this was both their most important sixth year application and their one most likely to succeed. Davis is the best player out of he, Knox and Clemons, but Davis's position group is the most loaded. MSU needs this OL returnee badly.

Who cares? Summoning all of one's resources is neither new nor unwise. Frankly, it's a major cause of our collective Harbaugh celebrating.

Can you prove that Sankey FOIA jet fuel thing? Spare your comment in this thread, Google has nothing to show for it.

How is this different than any of the partisan stuff coming from Alabama slappies in the south? Because Harbaugh is our guy.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Sure. But does that address||
Sure. But does that address the question? I wasn't asking why someone was playing at 9:30. I'm specifically wondering why Michigan is playing at 9:30.
For now, it matters much less, for us, competitively, what happens in the other half of the bracket, but in our half of the bracket, there are two Game 1 times. And it's surprising that the NCAA didn't have us go first. Especially as "higher seed plays first" is conventionalized.
In a multigame tourney where fatigue might eventually become a factor, there is a slight advantage to going first and resting longer. Even if we are just talking about 2.5 hours, that should always go to the highest seed.
But yeah, tv ratings may have played into this here. And maybe we do want Betsa pitching at night. However, I'm not as sure on those as I am on the (albeit faint) advantage of extra rest after game one.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||I prefer the convention||
I prefer the convention whereby the higher seed plays earlier in Round 1, so as to have at least an extra couple of hours between game 1 and game 2 than their lower-seeded challenger.
Basically: Why do we play the 9:30 game, rather than the 7:00 one? It would seem to be exactly the kind of faint disadvantage that the highest seed shouldn't have to deal with.
