I know one thing that'll happen...this Detroiter (born and raised in the City) will be rooting for Utah. Then, I'll go back to not caring about the NBA for the rest of the season.

As to #2, the value of tickets to the Bama game was indeed high. I expect this game to be nowhere close. I'd be surprised if they don't fall around face value for a couple reasons. First, we've been there before (no more novelty). Second, while Florida is a really good opponent, they don't have the same "history" of Alabama/Michigan.
Personally, I'd love to see the game in Florida, in A2 or on TV. Dallas? Nope.

I'd like to think that Michigan is better than McDonald's or Dominos.

Playing OSU only helps with SOS, but not with W/L, especially compared to Indiana.

Izzo was born of Brian Ellerbe, not Chris Webber. Our AD chose not to invest in bball at the time; while the opposite is true of the football program.

It's not as difficult for MSU to build a higher win total as they typically play a much weaker schedule each year. Let's see what happens now that they have to play OSU instead of Indiana each season. Last year was a rarity for them in that they played a schedule more like ours.

Seems like he "looked back" last year at 7-6 (3-5 in conf).

"Fleeting" because the improvement was built during the dark era in A2 and their defense is about to lose 6-7 starters while facing a stiffer schedule going forward than in the past. If I were Narduzzi, this would be my time to jump as they won't have a season this good again. If I were Dantonio, I'd grumble something and kick a dog...because that seems to be how he rolls.

I like your avatar (and Ontario) but otherwise have absolutely no clue what you're talking about.

Though I can't decipher how one could read it any other way than as Erik clarified, but no worries. Yes, Brandon went to the best source, the "primary source" and presented the info. It's as simple (and appropriate) as that.

Thanks. I guess no source better than the primary.

Brandon, is your report any different from Sam's (he just gives a $ link):

There's no way a guy gets burned like that unless the waiter got wayyy to close to him, or he moved toward the flame. Either way, sucks for him.
That said, I haven't bothered with 97.1 since 105.1 came on the scene. There's much more sports content (less "know what I hate about lunch meat" and whatnot). 105.1 is also a MUCH more positive station. Everything at 97.1 is "your" ("Your" Lions suck; "Your" Tigers made a bad trade); whereas 105.1 is a "we" station. 105.1 might also be slightly skewed toward Michigan rather than strongly anti-Michigan. Even the MSU-rep on 105.1 (Rico Sparty) does a really nice job as a host/personality. Sports without constant negativity? Yes please.

"The youth excuse can only go so far"...hilarious. I guess you can't use the "youth excuse" when you're starting freshmen. You only get to use it if they're still in high school and starting for your college team.
We're all disappointed with the season, but the negativity of this blog, that was soooo optimistic about the previous coaching staff, is a trip.

I'm still not over that garbage call. How is it that we never...never...never get the home cookin' that nearly every other program receives??? That might've been the worst call since Trey's block in the Finals.

Things to look for in 2014? Man, I'm just looking to find out who, who, who let the dogs out. People have been asking that important question since ~2000 and I don't believe it's been answered yet.

It's really good to hear that she wasn't in the control group and then, that the experimental drug is actually working! That's awesome. I spend much of my time with my (non-smoker) sibling who's fighting stage IV lung. He's already 3 years past his "expiration" date though things haven't been so great of late. Always good to hear positive stories.
Fuck cancer (and smokers who give other people cancer)!

|1 week 1 day ago||Whether he's worth it down||
Whether he's worth it down the road could be an open question, but how much was it worth to hire a coach that could unite the various upset parties (alumni, players, former players, fans, boosters, administration, etc.) post-RR? Though he'll utimately be judged based on his record, there's a ton of value in what Hoke was able to do before even coaching a single game.
|1 week 1 day ago||Urban did introduce a couple||
Urban did introduce a couple 4*'s to Utah recruiting, and he wasn't too shabby at Florida, was he?
|1 week 1 day ago||Hoke's not a Michigan-level||
Hoke's not a Michigan-level coach except that he has Michigan history...and that changes everything. Without that, he never would have been a candidate. If Dantonio had Alabama experience, then the situation would be parallel and he'd be a possible candidate.
|1 week 1 day ago||Saban likely is||
Saban likely is an...unpleasant person...but he's always been a star recruiter and that's been a soft spot for Dantonio. In the evil world of the SEC, that could be a huge problem. And while Dantonio has been to 2 B1G title games, he's done that post-RR years, which makes a big difference when Michigan is the main (and traditional competition). Like I said, he's a good (Iowa-level) coach, but a program like Alabama is going to want more.
|1 week 1 day ago||State had a good year, but||
State had a good year, but let's not get crazy...Dantonio isn't a candidate for a job like Alabama. He has the people skills of a stick and is a mediocre recruiter at best. His biggest selling point is, "I turn 2/3-stars into solid players." The combination of a down year in the B1G and MSU's charmin schedule made things look even better for them. He's an Iowa-level coach (and that's not an insult at all), but not a Bama/USC/Michigan/ND-level coach.
|1 week 2 days ago||If Saban goes to Texas, that||
If Saban goes to Texas, that would mark a good bit of foresight by Jim Delany is bringing in the powerhouse known as Rutgers rather than Texas. Jim knew that the B1G wouldn't want a parasite like Saban in the conference. Hell, it's in the league bylaws that we can only have 1 parasite and Urban has that locked down.

I'm not sure how "local" Kierland is. It seems to me like a generic, strip mall/chain restaurant paradise, but then again, so is Scottsdale in general. I'd imagine that younger folk would prefer a place like the Valley Ho or maybe the Saguaro:
|1 week 4 days ago||They're going to lose 7||
They're going to lose 7 starters on D and the heart of their O-line. They play Ohio State, Penn State and Oregon (none of whom they met in 2013), all of whom might be a step up from ND, Purde and Illinois.
We know how much it can hurt to lose the interior of your O-line and work with a young D. They'll be 6-1 headed into our game (5-2 if they lose to Nebraska). Prob 7-5 at the end of the year. They won't recover from losing so many essential parts on D.
