who's even more ignorant about sports than I am.
|5 hours 22 min ago||I'd rather that Miller and OSU win every conceivable poll||
in the pre-season. I wish they were a consensus, unanimous pre-season #1, and stayed that way until they get to Ann Arbor in November.
|7 hours 7 min ago||Now that you mention it||
our last national championship is a little moldy... time for a fresh one.
|7 hours 45 min ago||So Saban goes for waterfalls||
while Harbaugh goes for gold-plated personal toilets. It's how the big boys roll these days.
|7 hours 48 min ago||I second the suggestion of Herm||
It's still my contention he's about 30 years old.
|7 hours 51 min ago||MGoBlogland would find nothing remotely interesting about me||
but my lawn is the best-trimmed bunch of weeds and crabgrass in A2.
|8 hours 45 min ago||Looked for a link to profiles on the home page; didn't see one||
thanks anyhow. I thought this quote from the profile on MGoShoe was interesting, given that it was done in 2010 under the old points regime:
"The MGoPoints system isn’t perfect, but its obvious effect on minimizing trolls and jerky behavior in general is greatly appreciated. I doubt I’d be here without it because I’m not interested in participating in forums chock full of douchery."
|9 hours 15 min ago||Looking at historical precedents is interesting analysis||
It's an unusual way to look at things, but at least it's statistically-based.
However, Phil also needed to apply another precedent called "C'mon now, don't be stupid." If he'd applied that, NW, Vandy, and NC would be off the list.
|9 hours 27 min ago||I know he doesn't post much any more||
but I nominate MGoShoe.
|11 hours 37 min ago||Just accept it.||
What was your major at U-M?
|22 hours 22 min ago||Go look at the records of Schiano, Ferentz and RR from 2004-2007||
and then tell us that Ferentz and Schiano would have been more highly regarded across the country than RR at the end of 2007.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Astonishing how he even got the job here.||
No, it's not. At the end of the 2007 season, RR was one of the hottest young names in college football, coming within a Pat White hand injury against Pitt of ending up in the national championship game. If you'd asked 100 college football experts who the 10 best coaches were at that time, RR would have been on virtually everybody's list.
It may seem obvious now that he wasn't going to be successful in Ann Arbor, but hindsight is 20/20.

Gunfight at the OK Corral or Blazing Saddles.

Brandon needs to get on the phone to Al Taubman and get Briarwood embiggened stat.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Somebody care to respond to this reader's comment?||
Aside from the obvious misspelling...
"At U. Michigan, Chrisler Arena and the build out of the Big House also cost over $250 million, and though the athletic department pays $2 million a year (look in that budget) to service that debt, tell me how you can finance $250m with $2m a year."

All that's left is for Al Borges to call Dantonio a sourpuss, and we're set until the start of the season.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Simple minds, simple pleasures||
Well, that works for Ohio State fans.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Agree, but there is a large range of plausibility within sci-fi||
IMHO the best of science fiction has been written by authors who make an honest attempt to place their stories within a scientifically-plausible universe. Yes, it requires a willing suspension of disbelief, but there's a vast difference between stuff written by Asimov, Heinlein, Clarke, Pohl, Niven/Pournelle, Bear, Robinson, etc. on one hand and comic book superhero stuff on the other end of the spectrum. That doesn't mean the latter can't be fun to read or see in the theater, but real science fiction it ain't, at least by my standards.
And then there's the Sy-Fy Channel, which is produced with the mind of an 11-year old as a target, and not a very bright one at that.
|1 day 22 hours ago||I haven't seen MOS but it doesn't sound very much like Avatar||
The whole superhero shtick is basically indistinguisable from fantasy, while Avatar was placed within the realm of mainstream movie sci fi.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Lemme get this straight||
This thread is about a video game's ranking of the top 25 teams?
|2 days 2 hours ago||sputtered along at just 4.90 yds/play. That is not good.||
Maybe I'm missing something here, but if you're averaging 4.9 per play, you're going to have an awful lot of third-and-less-than-a-foot situations. I don't think too many coaches would complain about that. Bo certainly wouldn't have.
|3 days 6 hours ago||The UConn game made me think we had a defense with a pulse||
Then two weeks later we gave up 37 to UMass and I knew it was all a mirage.
|3 days 6 hours ago||If we beat UConn by only 14-6||
A2 Torch & Pitchfork won't be able to keep up with demand for their Al Borges Special.
|3 days 10 hours ago||"He comes off as fragile..."||
Point us to any video or written information that would back up your assertion in even the tiniest way.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Now we know Emmert's problem—bad leadership meth||
He just needs to get some good leadership meth. His teeth won't rot so quickly, and his skin won't crawl and itch so much.
|4 days 6 hours ago||You might be waiting a while for property values to rebound||
I think it'll be a while before land values increase notably in the parts of the city that have been devastated by blight and neglect. If you can afford to have a very long-term view—twenty years at least—buying cheap isn't a bad idea.
|4 days 6 hours ago||I love the body language in that pic||
One coach appears to be a large, confident, assertive, outgoing personality who is happy to be there, and the other looks like a guy who wishes he was alone in front of his mirror practicing his scowl.
|4 days 7 hours ago||Unfortunately, you're observing one of the effects of long-term||
unemployment. Most of the people in the city who have the life skills that enable them to hold down jobs are already working, and many others have long since left the area for greener economic pastures. A sizeable portion of those who are left are people with the least prospects and are truly unemployable without substantial investments in work training, and that's no panacea. It's an intractable problem, IMHO.
|4 days 8 hours ago||A city that built its economy and population on a foundation of||
many thousands of relatively good wage/low skill manufacturing jobs is going to struggle mightily unless those kinds of jobs come back, and that ain't happening. Several generations of Detroiters of all colors and ethnic groups were able to become middle-class by virtue of the auto manufacturing industry and all its related industries, and the large majority of these jobs required nothing more than a high-school education, if that. The disappearance of these jobs took far less time to occur than the process of creating them did, and the result was that there was suddenly no way to make middle-class wages for all the Detroiters who had until a short time before been able to make do with a high-school diploma.
This has happened to cities all over the industrial midwest, but Detroit was probably more thoroughly dependent on heavy manufacturing than any of them.
