|25 weeks 6 days ago||Pace||
So, to be clear, we play at a slower pace than Wisco (and every other team in the B1G other than Northwestern)?
|51 weeks 5 days ago||Overreaction||
Agreed. Not nearly enough overreaction. I mean, clearly the reason Courtney Avery has been moved to safety is not because Jarrod Wilson is struggling, but because Channing Stribling has already earned a starting corner spot. Lock to red shirt, ha!
There, I feel much better.
(Actually reminding myself: small sample size and selection of only a few plays over and over).
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Dining Hall v. Training Table||
I agree, Michigan's dining halls are probably below average when it comes to schools. However, don't forget that football players get training table, which is significantly better than the dining hall.
Not sure how UM's training table compares to other schools...unfortunately, I was never allowed to partake.

|2 years 6 weeks ago||Dawson||
Ace has told us not to worry about David Dawson. So I won't. Or I'll try not to.
I will say this however. Despite having no knowledge whatsoever about offensive lineman skills, potential, etc., David Dawson has quickly become the offensive line recruit I am most excited about.
This is likely due to the fact that there has been more out there about Dawson, (and exciting tidbits like the coach using Dawson as an example to the others over and over to teach technique at the one camp, which seems like a real indication of skill, as opposed to a review, somehow). Magnusson or Kalis may be better, but we just haven't heard as much about them.
That said, it's sunk in, and I'm now convinced David Dawson is awesome and the best ever.
So please don't break my heard Mr. David Dawson.
That is all.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Tom and Silas||
I actually was fortunate enough to row with both Tom, and his pair partner, Silas, at different times in my career.
They're both great guys, and deserve everything they get. Best of luck to them this summer - I'll be rooting hard.
Go Blue, Go Card, Go U.S.

What's with all the ham references?
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Whoa||
With Devin's back already seriously injured, we can't risk him playing.
We also wouldn't want to risk him losing his (ahem) medical redshirt. But that's insifignificant compared to our concern for Devin's health. His back is very, very, injured.
But Tate (or anyone else, Avery?) can have as much back-up time as they want.

List us at #3. Seems about right.
List Oregon at #24. WHA!?!?!

|3 years 40 weeks ago||Hemingway's Catch and Run for the Touchdown||
It was third (fourth?) and short, Denard rolls left, has TONS of space for an easy first down, and chose to gun it to Hemingway.
Then Hemingway, waited, waited, juked and went for the touchdown. So it all worked out.
But as Denard was throwing it, I was incredulous. We had a guaranteed first down, and probably another easy ten yards if Denard just ran. But he chose to make a relatively difficult throw across his body.
And this wasn't a case of going for the home run. It wasn't like the first play of the game where no one was between Roundtree and the endzone. There were three Illinois defenders around Hemingway to make the tackle.
When Denard chose to throw, he gave up a guaranteed 15 yards and a first down for a chance at completing a 25 yard pass.
Even though we got the touchdown, I really wish he'd run for the first down in these cases.

|3 years 41 weeks ago||On Taking Other Votes Into Account||
I agree with you. Other people's votes shouldn't matter. I also rarely vote, saving my votes for the best (and worst) comments.
However, I do take votes into account when I feel that somebody has made a valid point and is getting negged unfairly. In that case, I almost always give the post an upvote (even though if there had been no negative votes, I would not have voted).
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Cowherd is an Asshat||
Who gets everything wrong. Just today, Bethlehem Shoals of Free Darko fisked him for his comments on John Wall.
Good read, except thinking about Cowherd's asshattery gets me furious.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Math||
You have Black +6.5 -1 = 1. Something is wrong.
Oh wait, we already knew something was wrong. Damn.
EDIT: Bouje and Blue-Chip are much faster than I.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||I don't get the hate||
They added an interesting and competitive team to their schedule. That's a good thing.
I don't know why everybody wants to hate on State for this, especially while D'Antonio is currently demonstrating his patented "Zero Tolerance Policy" as a means of effectively molding young men into upstanding individuals.
I'm all for hating on State. But for scheduling Boise State? Relax people.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Mouton||
I recall something about Mouton battling an injury in this game. Maybe this explains some of Brian's ire?
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Haloscan||
I feel like people claiming "first" happened a ton during the old Haloscan days. This was when I just lurked, and long before I ever registered.
Back when people besides "The Knowledge" got handle-jacked.
Oh, the good ole days. Sigh.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||While I would hate to denigrate any form of the Bake,||
I must respectfully disagree.
When I attended UMich (02-06), West Quad was on the Blue menu while South Quad was on the Maize menu. At South Quad, the Chicken Broccoli Bake was the only entree requiring rice, and the sauce was cooked with the rice. This resulted in rice that had enough time to properly soak up the greasy goodness.
The Blue Menu on the other hand served the Bake with another entree which required rice. Therefore, West Quad cooked the Chicken Broccoli Bake sauce separately from the rice. This resulted in a runnier sauce and the rice did not have time to properly soak it up. Further, it always seemed less greasy than South Quad's.
Shall we settle the matter with pistols at dawn?

|3 years 46 weeks ago||Devin Wants||
Soo, Devin shouldn't be redshirted if he doesn't want to?
The internets have been up in arms about how Tate needs to shut up, learn to be a teammate, and do whatever Rodriguez wants him to do in order to be team player.
But we shouldn't redshirt a freshman (or sophomore) qb just because he doesn't want to?
It seems like a double standard to me.
(I know you didn't say anything about Tate. I was just using this as a point of comparison.)

As I recall, Schilling just called him "Shoe" in one of the videos.

Denard's first pass to Stonum in the UConn game scared the bejeezus out of me. A half second later and it was a pick six.
But otherwise, I generally agree with you.

I just thought that I'd let the OP know that this poll is from last week. Glad I could be the first one.

I would have to agree. His predictions are not write on.
|3 years 50 weeks ago||Defense||
I suppose I could envision a scenario where Michigan beats UConn 55-34 and wins big. I'm not saying it will happen, but I could envision it.
However, I CANNOT envision a single scenario where our defense holds UConn to 6 points. Not a single one.
I am going to assume this writer is a fool.
