|6 hours 8 min ago||I'm glad you mentioned Tony Pape||
As a young 'un in 2002 my dad took me to my first ever game in the Big House (vs. Central Michigan), and I kept the program from that game. I took a look at the team picture and said to myself "Okay, there are a bunch of names here that I know, but I'm gonna choose a face at random and follow his career." Picked out Tony Pape. Dude turned out to be an All-American.
I think this event among others is why I didn't understand for a very long time that not every Michigan player was an All-American and not every Michigan player would eventually play in the NFL. I mean if one guy I chose at random was an All American and Matt Guiterrez got signed for the Patriots despite never starting a game at Michigan, then surely everyone else did that too, right?

Who's Mama G?
|1 day 7 hours ago||Quite.|
|1 day 14 hours ago||Heh.||
It took me a very, very long time to notice the dude falling over in the background.
|1 day 14 hours ago||I would've said Pete Carroll when he was still in college||
Dude pulled hijinks on the regular and seemed like a fun guy. Plus, you know, the winning.
I hated USC when they kept beating us in Rose Bowls, but Pete's cool in my book now.
|1 day 15 hours ago||He had something like 750 total yards last year||
If only he weren't on the Jaguars.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Nah.||
I thought I would, but I don't. They did a damn fine job on the luxury boxes, and from the outside especially the brick looks beautiful and very Ann Arbor-esque.
|2 days 7 hours ago||In fairness||
That's a pretty easy mistake to make. Before I got glasses I couldn't tell that I was nearly blind.
|2 days 13 hours ago||I laughed at first||
then I re-read it and now I'm somewhat confused.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Not quite, but close enough.||
The German word for fox is Fuchs.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Well, I'm sad now.||
I got into Top Gear about two months ago and he was definitely a highlight.
|2 days 19 hours ago||As to that||
There's a difference between saying, "Oh, a guy's hurt" and "He fucking tore ligaments in his foot?!" And over the second half of the season it didn't get so much attention.
|3 days 17 hours ago||I liked the idea of legends jerseys||
Legends jerseys were a great idea and what they represented was cool. When Desmond Howard was on the field before UTL being honored with his Legends jersey, the stadium was just going crazy and it was a special moment.
I don't think it panned out very well, and I think the idea could have been executed somewhat better, but I loved the way it started out.
|3 days 18 hours ago||This is my favorite road uniform.||
I mean, damn, look at how good it looks.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Always loved the trim.||
Stylish without being completely over the top.
|4 days 7 hours ago||Foxes go floof|
|4 days 7 hours ago||Still got it||
|4 days 7 hours ago||That would open up a whole new era of instant replay headaches||
"He wasn't at the 10, you blind moron, he was at the 11! It counts!"
|4 days 7 hours ago||This is what I remember about Fred Russell in the 2003 Iowa game||
Little fucker hid behind his mammoth O-line, went crazy in the second half and ran for 200-some yards. I think he was the only one of Iowa's backs to escape the notice of AIRBHG, probably because he was so small.
|4 days 7 hours ago||Or even Boston College or something.||
The Flutie Effect is still a thing, right?
|4 days 7 hours ago||Apparently||
Apparently you can buy a fox as a pet in Russia. I found this out a year ago and I've made it a life goal.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I hope they don't.||
I hate the idea of doing away with something just because somebody got too good at it. Kickers have to make a living too, y'know.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Sporting attitude you've got there, WD.||
|4 days 16 hours ago||Shit. Well...||
The idea behind helmet stickers is cool (reward, incentive, all that fun stuff) but as so many others have said, it looks terrible combined with Michigan's helmet. Clutter all over the place.
The stickers will definitely be smaller (everything equipment-related in this day and age is), so that'll help. If they can make them look good, I'll be all for it.
|4 days 16 hours ago||NO BEND. NO BREAK. ALL PAIN.||
|5 days 19 hours ago||Could be you've answered your own question there.||
|6 days 13 hours ago||Probably.||
One of my high school math teachers explained to me that in its highest form, mathematics is like art. The difference between "solve for x" and "explain why x turns out to be what it is", if you will. One is just a means to an end, whereas the other is a fundamental understanding of the beauty of the relationship between numbers and lines.
Of course, it's never taught the latter way, so most people just learn to resent it.
|6 days 13 hours ago||I mean||
He set off Jim Schwartz just by giving him a handshake and an "aggressive" pat on the back, so we should probably watch for the inevitable pre-game and post-game brawl.
|6 days 13 hours ago||I shredded my toe once||
Was out for a couple weeks.
Torn ligaments? Yee-owch. That'll get ya, no problem.
I'm amused that Funchess was asked about his lack of touchdowns. I mean, how do you approach that? "Hey Devin, how come you weren't the destroyer of worlds last year that everyone thought you'd be?" "I, well... I don't know how to answer that."
