"Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons." -- Popular Mechanics, 1949 "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." -- Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943 "I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked with the best people, and I can assure you that data processing is a fad that won't last out the year." -- The editor in charge of business books for Prentice Hall, 1957 "But what ... is it good for?" -- Engineer at the Advanced Computing Systems Division of IBM, 1968, commenting on the microchip. "There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home." -- Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977 "This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us." -- Western Union internal memo, 1876. "The wireless music box has no imaginable commercial value. Who would pay for a message sent to nobody in particular?" -- David Sarnoff's associates in response to his urgings for investment in the radio in the 1920s. "Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible." -- Lord Kelvin, president, Royal Society, 1895. "Professor Goddard does not know the relation between action and reaction and the need to have something better than a vacuum against which to react. He seems to lack the basic knowledge ladled out daily in high schools." -- 1921 New York Times editorial about Robert Goddard's revolutionary rocket work. "Airplanes are interesting toys but of no military value." -- Ferdinand Foch, Professor of Strategy, Ecole Superieure de Guerre. "Everything that can be invented has been invented." -- Charles H.

Michigan is obviously in the mix, but everybody's calling UM a favorite except MM himself, and he's the only one who matters ultimately.

It's already been done.
|21 hours 9 min ago||It would be hilarious to see Meyer leave for Texas or Bama||
Not that it's going to happen, but the meltdown in Columbus would be entertaining as hell.
|21 hours 12 min ago||Those kids have to know that well-regarded coordinators||
are always at risk of leaving. Virtually every HC that any player has had was once a coordinator who left some program to be HC at another.
Is it fair that coaches can leave and not have to sit out a year while kids do? Not really, but that's how college football works.

Less than 24 hours in, that's exactly how it's being used, and frequently. Which is exactly the same as it was previously, except now at least it costs to neg.

My testicles say your argument is invalid.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Lastly, Dantonio would be a prime candidate for 'Bama.||
I don't know if a 57-yr old guy with recent heart problems and the personality of a stump is an obvious choice to replace Saban or Brown.
|1 day 11 hours ago||my faith in him being consistent is almost zero.||
Gardner was sacked 35 times this season, which I suspect might be the highest number ever recorded against a Michigan QB.
Only NW and Purdue gave up more sacks, at 36 and 38 respectively. For comparison, Iowa and MSU gave up 12 and 13.
If you think Devin can be fairly judged with the porous OL he had to work with this season—one of the least effective OLs we've had since at least 1967—you have interesting views.
|1 day 12 hours ago||am I the only one who finds bowl practices really anti-climatic?||
Michigan bowl game practice reports are never anything other than Fort Schembechler clichés. What on earth are you expecting to hear? That Al Borges and Greg Mattison got into a fistfight?
|1 day 23 hours ago||Mary Ann is way prettier than Ginger.||
She's also way kinkier in the sack than Ginger, who's surprisingly conventional under the sheets. Mary Ann is a moaner and a screamer.
|1 day 23 hours ago||some of these comments||
are why we need downvotes, too.
|1 day 23 hours ago||ESPN has the biggest boner right now.||
I think Nick Saban's financial advisor has the biggest boner right now, especially if he gets a percentage.
|2 days 2 min ago||X million movies are not worth watching.||
which is why I haven't seen X million of those movies.
Look, I love science fiction and SF movies, and I understand and accept that willing suspension of disbelief is necessary if you're going to get anything out of them. What's more preposterous than the "negotiating with host" scene in "Independence Day" when Jeff Goldblum's dinky little Mac laptop is somehow able to communicate with a completely alien information technology? I suppose it's just me, but the whole disconnect between the reality of what our weapons can do and how they're routinely portrayed in "Godzilla" movies is just one step over the line into farce.

Piffle... I just heard that Saban bought Austin.

Now that would set the tongues wagging...
|2 days 6 hours ago||aaaand the idiotic assumption yet again||
that bombs and missiles with the capability of penetrating several inches of hardened steel or feet of hardened concrete will have no effect whatsoever on a flesh and blood creature.
|2 days 6 hours ago||You want to redress the imbalance between offense and defense?||
Simple: return to the rules governing the use of hands by offensive linemen that existed until the 1970s in college and pro ball. You'd see results almost immediately.
It ain't gonna happen though, since offense sells tickets, esp. in the NFL.

or do you have to take it with food?
|2 days 8 hours ago||The other "martini" is just cold vodka.||
Except when it's made with Absolut Peppar, garnished with blue-cheese stuffed olives.
Gin martinis are great too, though.
|2 days 8 hours ago||for which I think he has a natural talent???||
You have got to be kidding. I used to catch "The Nick Saban Show" or whatever it was called on Sundays when he was at MSU.
I've never seen a more wooden cold fish coach in front of a TV camera in my life.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Yep, UM played in the Astro-Bluebonnet Bowl in '81||
Beat the snot out of UCLA 33-14.

Pitting the Xavier Xenomorphs against the Providence Predators. Should be a barn-burner.

Just imagine the fast food tie-ins. You could name it the Weedeater Bowl and put it in Boulder.

and the former Copper/Insight bowl will be renamed the Chipotle Flaming Stool Bowl.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Ah, the ol' "Coach X's wife has bought a house in___"||
"I heard from my barber in Ann Arbor earlier in the week that Les Miles' wife was spotted in town shopping for houses this past week. That is based purely on the town gossip of Ann Arbor, but I have a feeling it is probably based on some truth."
|2 days 12 hours ago||The coaching staff pulls a Beilein||
If Hoke was truly going to "pull a Beilein," he'd fire half his staff and bring in some dynamic young assistant coaches.
That's highly unlikely to happen.
