You say garbage time, I say without that effort we don't get that all important check mark for time of possession.

Good lord, there is probably not a more concrete example of failed talent evaluation than this. If you simply made that shit up nobody would believe you.

I'm on Mucinex night time cold medicine. I will think of this before I go to sleep and report the wicked crazy dream I have with Clint Eastwood as our coach. It will be glorious I'm sure.

My wedding in 2001 featured my Grandmother scoffing at the pastor, a great man with compassion for everything he did in life, who happened to be black.
My best friend came to the wedding in his best suit, and was looked down upon by people in my extended family, simply because of his color.
I hate racism. I have disowned people in my family for such, and will never tolerate people who are intolerable.

I planned on sharing it after we won. I felt like it would not get used for that purpose at half, so I chugged most of it to ease my pain.
I would probably feel guilty if it was out of my Pappy stash...

I started drinking at halftime of the ND game too. Also, thank you for the highlight video.

Just to catch you up -
There are cookies and refreshments at the door, sit down and relax. We will need your energy to get through this week.

Before the Notre Dame game this year I filled my flask with some Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban for celebratory purposes. Packed it in my pocket and headed to South Bend for an Irish beatdown.
I can confirm that at halftime I made the exact same face as this fan, took my flask to the restroom, and chugged it. The second half was not nearly as painful as the first half.

If the coaches pull a 2013 OSU rabbit out of their hat, I would be a happy guy. The computers like us < 10% to win, but I'd just love to see them stick it to Sparty this weekend.

So in those instances, is it more on the safety than the LB? I guess I'm just used to seeing Bullough standing in the gap the RB is supposed to hit, so it caught me off guard.
|2 days 18 hours ago||The other thing I noticed in||
The other weakness I noticed in the Indiana game was that MSU had some suspect play from their inside LB's. On a couple big run plays for Indiana, the LB missed his gap assignment and the secondary was slow to respond. When I saw that, I couldn't help but imagine Hayes finding that gap and running in wide open space.

Actually they add color to what we already kinda knew -
2013 oFEI #42 after 13 games
2014 oFEI #67 after 7 games
With the easiest part of our schedule is behind us already, I can see us dropping into the mid 70's by the time the season is done.
Your disdain for mLive doesn't make these stats irrelevant, they just give us some idea why we are bad.

There are things that our defense is good at if you look through the metrics - where we get stung is that we are 75th on Defensive SOS. For example, we are 29th in Defensive Efficiency and 21st in FD (drives that have at least one first down or end in a touchdown).

They used Bellomy so they could evaluate Gardner, without risking further injury to Morris. I wasn't really bothered by this that much. The announcers trying to stir the pot bothered me more when Gardner came back in. "Oh look they're playing an injured player again!" Those announcers were terrible.

My wife's grandfather had a heart attack at the Wisconsin game in 2008. He ended up being okay as the staff in place did a great job getting him to the hospital. There was some yelling between two fans (in the ER) and we were shocked to see people fighting in an emergency room. The nurse said that was nothing really, when Ohio State is in Ann Arbor they have to divide the emergency room by school.
No OSU for sure and I would put Sparty in that mix too. Northwestern would be my pick just because we've played them close recently.

i think of him differently and take what he says with a grain of salt. I'm sure that others do as well. It may not have affected his bank account, but it did affect his credibility.

They aren't generalities when you can cite specific examples of each.
Toxicity- amongst the students for the botched student seating. Among the fans for pimping out the Michigan name. Among the administration for trying to get medical staff to lie.
Internal politics- hiring a Michigan Man with a sub .500 record because of pressure from within to hire whoever fit that meme. Pushing out a coach who was improving his record because he wasn't liked.
Culture- what else could cause you to put Denard under center? Seriously.
You hate Ramzy, we get it. You think the solution is as simple as "hire a good coach." I think that you are being naive
