Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.

If he'd been hit by somebody on a hard-edged sled, he'd have both legs done Theismann-style.

we should win comfortably. If we stink up the joint like we did against IU and MSU, any kind of clusterfuck is possible.

football will be played by huge animatronic cyborg avatars controlled remotely by their handlers—tiny, pale, eyeless sluglike creatures with gigantic heads, floating in vats.

Sam Webb said everything just short of "gut feeingl" for Dylan McCaffrey this morning. He made it pretty clear without saying directly that DM is going to commit to us.

If Gary doesn't set the single-season Michigan record for sacks and TFLs there will be asshats on MGoBlog calling him "overrated."

My first year at UM was 1971, and people were riled up about Orr even then. It wasn't too long after that that anti-Orr fans were standing on State St. and along Hoover with big "Dump Johnny Orr" signs during the pre- and post-game trek to and from Crisler.

One man's "wasted space" is another man's valuable content. Last time I looked, pixels are free.

I'm not really knowledgeable about BB beyond a surface level and I'd guess that those who are could poke large holes in my statement, but the parallels seem to be there to my unsophisticated eyes.
Part of my frustration is that when I was in school during the '70s, those Michigan teams with Grote, Staton, Britt, Baxter, Hubbard, and even Ricky Green played hellacious, in-your-face defense all game long. There was no such thing as opposing shooters getting uncontested open looks all day. I know it's a different era and every coach has his own system, but it's a rare team that gets very far in the post-season if it can't play fundamentally strong defense, and the few teams that do generally have lights-out offenses. We're far from that.

Focus almost entirely on offensive part of the game utilizing soft finesse players; defense appearing to be a complete afterthought; inexplicable coaching decisions in-game regarding personnel, strategy, use of TOs, etc; team is competitive against mid-level-to-bad opponents, but completely outmatched in talent and even some intangibles when playing good teams.

I want to hear the inside stories, the dirt, the laughable instances of drunken debauchery in Super 8s in Topeka with hookers with names like donuts. Names need to be named, and photos provided.

I thought the original Schembechler Hall was a pig-ugly monstrosity the day it opened. Its architect Gunnar Birkerts designed some very notable buildings in his career, but that weird thing on State St. was an embarrassment.

The performance started with them being lowered to the stage inside cylindrical, sci-fi-like capsules. Pretty over the top entrance, but it was an entertaining show anyhow.
The November 9, 1977 issue of the Daily has a review of the concert (scroll right to the third page:

|1 week 21 hours ago||The site has been essentially non-functional all day for me||
It's only been during the last 15 minutes that I've managed to get on without getting kicked off into another 502. I've gotten some 521s too, whatever those mean.
Problems the same on laptop and mobile.

I got kicked into another 502. I'm surprised to see the comment posted.
|1 week 21 hours ago||If it's points #2 and #3||
why would we have even contacted him again, let alone extend a provisional offer? And if he was a "silent commit" was it strictly one-way? Was it a conditional offer, based on whether we'd have space? None of this makes sense to me on the surface, but I suppose there's a back story that explains things.
Regardless, we didn't need another QB, and converting him to a full-time safety or LB would be an experiment. I'm disappointed he didn't sign with AZ, but that's recruiting. He'll get a good degree at Cal.
|1 week 22 hours ago||??? Site has been non-functional all day for till now for me||
This is the first I've been able to get on and stay on all day, whether laptop or mobile. All I've gotten is constant 502s with occasional access that then drops off to another 502. I must have tried 30 times and gotten through maybe 5. I eventually gave up and visited Scout, TTB, and M&B for updates.
The lack of access meant I got a lot more actual work done, though.

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure playing good defense has always been necessary to win championships in basketball.
