It all makes sense when you realize there are secret negotiations between the B1G and the MAC to swap Western for Rutgers.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||I agree with you in general||
I agree with you in general but I'm not sure how much Penn State's season helps us. Without that, OSU is in the BTCG where they'd almost certainly destroy Wisconsin, which would render moot the "Do both OSU and the B1G champ deserve to get in over Michigan?" question and give us just that slightly better chance of getting in the CFP.

Moving into first place by having a bye while the rest of the division loses... that is the most Lions way EVER to take the division lead.

My only quibble with Spencer's description is that it should have read "Hill blasted into the end zone like a psychotic panda going after the last stand of bamboo on earth with 3:52 left in the second quarter."

Not so fast...
A good way to describe Huntsville is "a city full of literal rocket scientists surrounded by Alabama."

[SECTION 4. Batting and Kicking Batting a Loose Ball—ARTICLE 1 Approved Ruling 9-4-1] I. Team A attempts a field goal from Team B’s 30-yard line. A Team B player in the end zone leaps above the crossbar and bats the ball in flight. The ball goes out of bounds in the end zone.
RULING: Foul for batting the ball in the end zone. During regulation play, postscrimmage kick enforcement gives a safety by penalty. In extra periods, enforcement of the 15-yard penalty is at the previous spot
and Team A retains possession.
II. Team A attempts a field goal from Team B’s 30-yard line. A Team B player in the end zone leaps above the crossbar and bats the ball in flight. The ball goes into the end zone and is recovered by Team A.
RULING: Foul for batting the ball in the end zone. The result of the play is a touchdown.
III. Team A attempts a field goal from Team B’s 30-yard line. A Team B player in the end zone leaps above the crossbar and bats the ball in flight. The ball goes into the end zone and is recovered by Team B.
RULING: Foul for batting the ball in the end zone. The result of the play is a touchback, safety.
IV. Team A attempts a field goal from Team B’s 30-yard line. A Team B player in the end zone leaps above the crossbar and bats the ball in flight. The ball goes into the field of play.
RULING: Foul for batting the ball in the end zone. During regulation play, postscrimmage kick enforcement gives a safety by penalty. The ball remains alive, and Team A may elect the result of the play. If Team A recovers, does not score and accepts the penalty, or if the play occurs in an extra period, enforcement is at the previous spot.
VII. Team A attempts a field goal, and B23, in the end zone, goes above the crossbar and catches the ball.
RULING: Legal play.

Also, I can probably give this the Moving Picture Pages treatment. Haven't done one of those in quite a while now.

JFK was killed by his driver using a CIA-provided CO2-powered assassination pistol designed with Alien technology firing an exploding bullet filled with shellfish toxin.
This and many more (moon bases! Mars bases! Reptilians!) - just google "Milton William Cooper."

Pretty surprised the entire state of Nebraska isn't deep red.

Don't think of it as a movie that butchers a book. Just think of it as a movie that coincidentally shares a title, some character names, and the 'villains' with a book. I found it much easier to enjoy both once I did that.

Here's why I hate it: the jock gets the girl, the bad boy gets the girl, and the dork does everybody's homework... and goes home alone.

On the 20-ish yard scramble up the middle, it looks like he's about to slide, remembers 'Oh yeah, I'm going to get hammered anyway and there won't be a flag,' then straightens up and runs 8 more yards.

Not only did they play OSU close, they had a first and goal at the OSU 6 with :45 left and a chance to tie.

I thought I was the only person in the universe (aside from all the Michigan defenders) who saw that. Nobody else I've ever talked to about that play saw it.

10-2 with losses to UNLV and Rutgers? I'd... be OK with that.

GEN Pritchard, CO of the unit that captured Davis, lived in my hometown (Allegan). The soldier who first laid hands on Davis is buried just down the road in Martin. There was a story about him in the local paper a few weeks ago: http://www.allegannews.com/allegan-news-news/civil-war-soldier-andrew-bee-honored-after-150-years

Welp, that's what I get for only looking at the first page of 'New.'

There was a line on The Drew Carey Show where Drew, after noticing a similar fold in his new pants, said "I don't know whether to take them back or buy five more pair."

I don't think they'll stop caring until the final gun. They need to RUTS us as badly as possible to have a chance of making the CFP.

Michigan literally left 15 points on the field just on special teams. The block in the back and the roughing penalty have already been discussed (although when I'm king, diving and rolling around like you've taken a sniper's bullet through the knee will result in an offsetting unsportsmanlike conduct penalty), but if Chesson finishes his block on Kerridge's fake punt, then the big guy rumbles into the end zone.

2200? When did they recalibrate the SAT? Usedta be 800v800m for 1600 was the max...
EDIT: did the legwork - 'verbal' is now 'critical reading' and an 800-point-max writing section was added in 2005.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Six sacks and three turnovers||
Six sacks and three turnovers helped a lot. Also two punts downed inside the one, which is rare enought that I thought they were highlight-worthy.

embed fail. Link is http://youtu.be/Sp52Xa-AQf8?list=UUOrY75aLarrqIAhmGamx3KA
Update: embed fixed (obviously). For some reason it took me several attempts to get YouTube to show the 'use old embed code' checkbox.

What do you mean, 'tonight?' I started late in the first half of the ND game and basically haven't stopped since.
I had a bunch of my YouTube subscribers ask when I was going to get around to doing that game, and I finally had time late last weekend. I should have understood that the intersection of the sets 'parkinggod YouTube subscribers' and 'regular MGoBlog readers' is probably pretty small.
