I think that is a legitimate concern. The AD agrees with you because they asked people to get there early to help out.

I've read comments from yesterday about Jones and Elliot. The thing that baffles me is when people say it will hurt him in the NFL. Jimmy Graham has openly complained about his usage just this year. The Bills and Eagles locker rooms have also openly taken shots at their coaches. I don't think these guys will be hurt by their commentary as it pertains to NFL draft stock.

There are a myriad of different people on the blog. Some check the blog every 15 minutes or so, refreshing articles frequently and reading every comment. These folks would often times like to think that everyone should hold their standard of record retention and dedication to the blog.
Some check the blog a few times a day, reading the front page, looking over the headlines, and eyeing what might be interesting to read about. These folks sometimes get snagged up by posting something that has already been posted about or talked about.
Some only read the UFRs and pressers, some only read the forums. Some never click mgo.licio.us, some never read the diaries. These folks usually don't post much, just lurk around. If they do post something it has likely already been posted and discussed.
There are even those that skim through a few times a week. These folks rarely ever post and if they do, they would be likely to post something that has already been discussed or posted.

Had dinner with my wife, son, mother and father tonight to honor my father on Veterans Day. My Mom wanted him to mention that he was a veteran to the waitress because they were offering a 15% discount for veterans. He declined to do so. I've heard him talk of his service only a few times in my life and I think to him it was about more than getting something in return.
Thank you all who have served.

Memorial Day honors the fallen. Veterans Day honors all those who have served, including the fallen. While it is true that the original date aligns with the ending of WWI, congress changed the holiday to honor all those who have served.
So while I appreciate that you remember those whose lives were lost, Veterans Day is about more than the scope of your comment. Carry on and memorialize the day however you choose though - that's entirely up to you.

75-0 would make me feel refreshed. My hope is that they endure such a long and dry winless streak against Michigan that they quit football. Fuck Rutgers.

For comparison, I threw this chart together. I would agree with the earlier assertion that Minnesota is a poor man's Northwestern. By the numbers, we should be able to put up in the high 20's to low 30's on offense and Minnesota will struggle to get out of single digits. Turnovers will skew this number as well as special teams which I didn't include. Michigan is #1 in STE and Minnesota is #77 FWIW.

If they use him to run the ball, you're fine. He rarely throws for more than 250 yards and 1 TD. If he rushes for 1 TD you're probably set.

I'm really not that mad or upset. There hasn't been one point this season that I have left the home games early or turned the away games off early either. I seriously feel like I am watching football again and fluke crap like that happens, albeit rare but it does happen. It feels 1000 times different this year.
Leaving the game Saturday night I was laughing. Some people took comfort in my laughter, others seemed offended. I just shook my head and asked my wife, "What else are you supposed to do after THAT?"
There were some Spartan fans leaving the game on Saturday hanging out of the window of the school bus they were riding (it wasn't short if you're keeping score at home). They were slapping the side of the bus like unfed monkeys yelling - "All we need is Harbaugh ha ha ha. Yeah right, suck it Little Sister."
I smiled at them as they were driving by. They momentarily stopped, almost confused why a dude in a Michigan shirt would be smiling at them. It was only a moment before they went back to banging and yelling. As they did I just laughed. I think they WANT us to be more upset by this than we are. I'm guessing that there aren't a whole lot of bragging rights to winning a game like that, just people telling you how "lucky" your team was. I know most Notre Dame fans I talked to, after they got past the initial jokes, said it was a complete fluke that Michigan State won.

Also worth noting that the year he did play 13 games, he had 19 touchdowns to 14 interceptions (yuck!) Disclaimer I guess that he was much younger, but I dunno.

It's hard to get a read on him just through looking at stats, because he has played in 6,13, 5, and 1 game(s) the last four years. He was originally committed to Standford under Harbaugh then switched to BYU because of an enrollment date issue.
His first year he was used as a running threat substitution, and in 6 games he totalled only 71 passing attempts. Some interesting career stats though; averaging 16 rushing carries per game over his career for an average just over 88 yards per game. He is averaging just under 200 passing yards per game over the same time, so he does add a threat in both facets. That's not quite Denard level production, but it does make me intrigued in the prospect of generating 300 yard of offense per game.
But man - dude can't stay healthy. I guess if he is brought in then you'd want to either limit his usage and/or have a solid backup plan.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||This is a sensitive issue for||
This is a sensitive issue for me, so I won't make a big soap box disagreement, but I don't agree that 15 year olds completely are harmless. Social media has given bullies an avenue to spew their anger - some in totally anonymous ways - Yik Yak as a recent example. My son has been on the recieving end of some pretty hurtful things. Blake O'Neil is better euipped to deal with comments like these, but they are just an extension of how they treat and act to their peers. It is pretty sickening the things that the small percentage of these can control over the right audience, typically kids like mine with high functioning autism are an easy target for them.
With that said, I will agree that death threats by a pubescent child are almost harmless and not as serious as was reported, but the usage of social media and bullying is a larger issue that our schools and society are not ready or equipped to deal with. Okay it was a medium sized soap box. Good article Brian and thanks for looking into this.
