|2 days 22 hours ago||When they were first||
When they were first introduced my read of this blog was that Brian didn't like them. Mainly because it takes away from ever making another number famous. That's where it got me as well.
A good solution might be to keep the patches, but let the kid keep their own number. The patch represents the legend and the current player has a chance to make their own number famous.

I'm not a fan of the helmet stickers, but if they're gonna do it, I second a small block M representation.

That's just the timing of things. Bo's Lasting Lessons was obviously not profiting off of mistakes; quite the opposite.

Yeah, if more than half of this reply makes sense to you, I recommend not moving to Denver. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt since you only spent a few months here and were likely working your ass off, but I think the only thing small and provincial here is your perspective.
|6 weeks 23 hours ago||Fair points. It's good to||
Fair points. It's good to acknowledge it's not all roses and sunshine. I, for one, like the dry air though.
|6 weeks 23 hours ago||This reply is pretty on||
This reply is pretty on point. I would say that it's not as bike friendly as D.C. where I lived previously, but still very bike friendly depending on your location and travel needs.
In aerospace, check out Ball (the glass jar company). Turns out they make their actual money off of aerospace. They're located in Broomfield which is between Denver and Boulder.
In short: you should move to Denver. It's the best city I've ever lived in and it gets better every day.
|6 weeks 23 hours ago||Agreed||
Agreed. I was thankful to see this today rather than the other option: double-birds walking out of the stadium. I got the Taken reference on the post, but still thought it was mean-spirited and focused more on the person with the (terrible) idea rather than the (terrible) idea itself. It’s definitely out of character for this blog and I’m glad Brian realized it as such upon further review.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Fair points and I agree it||
Fair points and I agree it was meant more as a joke than any real malicious intent, but judging by the mob mentality of some of the commenters they’ve certainly crossed that line. That’s the problem I have with this post: it was presented in a way that focused more on the person behind the idea rather than the idea itself. I’m fine with saying the idea is fucking horrible. But I would ask anyone planning to attack this guy’s appearance or other unrelated items think about the stupid shit they did (are doing) when they were 19-20 before doing so.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Hot take||
Talk about a "hot take," man. It's a terrible fucking idea, but so is roasting a kid on your blog who had the gall to come up with a bad idea. This blog should be above ad hominem personal attacks on students.

Just jumped out at me that 2018 recruits (and some '17) were born in this century. I'm old. That is all.

Count me in if they go this route this year.

It had been awhile since I had seen Wheatley highlights and that took me back. I didn't remember how big he was for being that fast. Loved the call at 5:12: "he's fast, he's big, he's strong, he's... touchdown!"
|11 weeks 3 days ago||splitting hairs?||
Count me in the camp that thinks Harbaugh will be wildly successful, but I can’t see any comparison to Meyer in terms of past success as an indicator of future success as “splitting hairs.” Dude has two national championships and a chance for a third in a week. Harbaugh has been successful everywhere, but there’s just no comparison at this point. Hopefully that’s not true in the next 5-10 years.

"If Michigan does not get Harbaugh he would be my first choice."
I agree. Rich Rod is my first choice too.

An open practice with an actual game like substance. And him mic'ed up to give an even better glimpse inside the program.
Seems to contradict the football program's notion that secrecy is a component of success.

As someone with technical knowledge of email delivery, I agree with the statements affirming the veracity of the emails. It would take a pretty sophisticated ruse – or that email address randomly being assigned to a student with a good sense of humor J - to pull it off over the length of time we’re looking at.
Mainly unrelated: how the heck does umich.edu not have an SPF record set up? Anyone who with a umich.edu email address has a pretty good chance of their sent emails going to spam due to this. I can’t think of a technical hurdle that would prevent what is a pretty easy DNS setting.

That's just not true. I don't even have to leave our program to find an example. What do you think of john beilein?
I think what you mean is most successful coaches are type-A personalities and that also tends to rub some people the wrong way and make them seem like assholes. I'm saying the Harbaugh seems to be an asshole just to be an asshole. Anyway, like I said, I'll take him in a heartbeat over what we've got.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||WOW||
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Feelingsball on coaches||
Given the situation, I would take just about any competent head coach out there. But I just can’t get over how much of an asshole Harbaugh has proven to be. Latest example, taking timeouts at the end of the SF-Den game this week and his half-assed congratulations of Manning. No need to remind me, both of those things are well within his right to do, but you would have a hard time arguing that they weren’t asshole moves.
In the end, I just want a coach who wins games, but he certainly rubs me the wrong way. I guess when he’s your school’s asshole, it’s all well and good, but he’s not our school’s asshole… yet.

I would encourage everyone not to respond to this post. There's a difference between discussing issues that affect the University of Michigan and devolving into trite political generalizations.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||The Funchess thing||
You gotta let the Funchess injury go. Shit happens and whether it’s a lost cause or not, when we’re losing I damn well want our first string in the game. Had the score been the opposite, I could see this point.

No chance it's "better" than Notre Dame, a traditional rival who we regularly compete with for prospects and regional bragging rights. But, it is an interesting game and a welcome addition to the schedule. It would be nice to get one of these larger name opponents to commit to a series rather than just two games so we could gin up a new rivalry.

Ughh, that is a cheap shot. I doubt many of his teamates even saw it given the flow of the play. Talk about adding injury to insult.
