|1 day 7 hours ago||TE||
No tackle over, but the plan is for Glasgow to line up as a TE nxt to Braden, with Williams on the other side, Hill as an H-back, and Kerridge in the backfield in front of Green/Smith. If ND cheats everyone into the box, Glasgow will go in motion wide.

You could, perhaps, ask him something like, "Who was actually the starter at WLB last week? Was it Morgan or Bolden?" He'll be so confused that the question is being asked, he might answer.

You, sir, have fantastic comedic timing. No offense to the others, but this was the best lemon video by far.

Certainly not #5 in the vine. That looked liked a miniature David Meggett going up again an o-lineman. I mean, what coule either of them have learned in that drill? The blocker stuck between Roseboro and the equally massive defender he bulled through was also pretty tiny. I know high school competition is pretty variable, but dang.

I am, actually, a tree. But I'm not an elm: I'm a maple. Yes, I admit it. Feel free to shun me now.
|1 week 4 days ago||TaxSlayer Bowl||
I went to the then Gator Bowl when Michigan played in it against Mississippi State, since I lived only a couple of hours away. The game itself was pretty horrible, as everyone remembers, but it's a good stadium and a good atmosphere. (The Mississippi State fans were wonderful, although the damn cowbells got annoying fast.)
Hopefully, Michigan has a good enough season to get invited to a better bowl, but I wouldn't mind going back to Jacksonville for another bowl game if it comes to that. I'd recommend others go as well: Jacksonville is a relatively inexpensive city and, if you love the beach or golf, there's lots to do. If you don't, then there's, uh, considerably less to do other than watch Michigan play football and be comfortable in short sleeves despite it being January while watching them.

I like the whiff of Belushi in the full quote: It couldn't be a DUI, becuase I'm high, not drunk! I wasn't high, I last smoked two hours ago! Why would I have smoked at all, I have a plane to catch! There wasn earthquake! A Terrible Flood! Locusts! It wasn't my fault, I swear to god!

It seemed to me that the op was criticizing Meyer with his comment about Meyer lying for months. Maybe I'm overanalyzing that sentence, though.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||Given the state of the Fort||
Given the state of the Fort and the number of times Hoke says someone has a boo-boo, can we really criticize Meyer for being less than forthcoming on the injury status of his starting QB during the offseason?
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||one-off home game||
This would almost certainly be a one-off home game, so, as others have, any of the big names are off the table. Even the Louisville's and Syracuse's are probably off the table.
I would say Ohio (NTO) and Marshall are the most likely as they are likely to take the payday and are fairly local. I'm surprised we've never played Ohio (NTO) before and so, amongst the schools that I think we could get, I'll put them at the top. Also, that way, we can beat both Ohio (YTO) and Ohio (NTO) in the same year.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The way it sounds to me is||
The way it sounds to me is that they have a disciplinary process (either on the team, the Athletic Department, or the school, I don't know) and he won't be removed officially until the process concludes. I suspect he remains suspended throuh the conclusion of that process.
If this is true, I don't have a problem with York still being technically on the team. You have disciplinary processes for a reason and you should follow that process even when the evidence is overwhelming. As long as York never puts on a Michigan Jersey again, I'm OK if he's not officially kicked off the team for another month or two.

Um, what's an e-sporp? Am I showing my age that even after a google search, I can't figure out what that sentence means.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||If 40% of the population is||
If 40% of the population is arrested but only one quarter of those arrested are charged, then 10% if the population is charged. Or, about the same as the percent of football players who are charged.
I have no idea if Oakland is representative (it isn't in any other way, so I doubt it is here, to be honest), which is why I said so in the parenthetical of the original comment. The only conclusion I drew was that arrested is different from charged and that the difference between the rates at which the general young male population and the football population are being either is proably a lot smaller than Brian is suggesting. I stand by that conclusion.
Oh, I guess my other conclusion is that none of this means the original author isn't a horseface. I stand by that conclusion, too.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||perverse incentive||
Yeah, if hayes got his way, what would end up happening is that people with arrest records would get drafted higher in the draft because they would represent good deals for the owners. Clean players would, subsequently, get drafted lower, on average, and therefore get less money than they otherwise would have. I don't think Hayes has thought his plan through...
|4 weeks 6 days ago||nothing but nets||
I first heard about Nothing But Nets from an SI columb by Rick Reilly many years ago. An excellent organization that I've donated to. So, Reilly has had some positive impact in his life! (more than most sportswriters can probably say...)
|4 weeks 6 days ago||arrested vs, charged||
Great article overall, but you're conflating two entirely different things when you point out the 40-50% of men are arrested by 23 but only 7% of athletes are charged. Many people are arrested and then released without charges being filed. The two things are not synonyms.
Now, a quick googling was unable to find systematic numbers on the subject, but the following report claims that in Oakland, bout 75% of black youths are arrested and not charged. If this number is represenative (and I have no idea if it is), then college football players are not being arrested/charged at 1/4 the rate of the general young male population. Instead, they're being arrested/charged at the same rate! Still not good evidence that there's a plague of arrests in college football, especially when crime is down overall in the country. So Miller's still a horseface...
|8 weeks 8 hours ago||sample size||
Well, what I learned from the "null hypothesis" link Brian included in the etc. is that if you KNOW something strongly enough, it doesn't matter if it's statistically significant. So the small sample size here doesn't matter.

And not at all surprised that Desmond was there. One of the most amazing people I have ever met and a truly great ambassador for Michigan.

I voted for Spike fronting Ridley. It wasn't the most important play, and it may not have even been a good play, but damn if that image isn't hilarious. And I want to believe that the reason the lob was so off was because the passer couldn't believe what was going on under the basket. Spike swagger for the win!

Great add for the team. Here's to good things to come for the football team and the basketball team in the weaks to come!

No, he clearly wants the school to be in the Big 10, not just have Big 10 caliber academics. For instance, he's suggesting Southern Illinois could become a good candidate because it's close to St. Louis and therefore give the Big 10 access to that media market.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Or Louisville. I discount||
Or Louisville. I discount the "surprise" comment, because they all say that if they want to create some drama. The "not that far from home" comment seems more likely to be true. Putting those two things together, Kentucky seems to be the likely outcome, though Michigan and Louisville are in the running if he really is planning to surprise people.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||U of C football||
As a U of C alum, I can vouch for this. At least back in the late 90s when I was there, it very much resembled a high-school field, with metal bleachers for seating and everything. It even had two sets of bleachers, a larger one for the home fans and a smaller one for the visiting fans.
I usually went to two games a year, the first home game and homecoming, because they gave free pizza to all the students at half time. I don't remember anything about the football games, though i do remember that they trotted out Jay Berwanger, first Heisman Trophy winner, at half time one year at homecoming. Dude was old and not in the greatest shape even for his age, but I remember he struck the Heisman pose.

Wait, I thought it was John L. Smith. The hot piss he harps about is really a reference to the hot, dense state the universe was in immediately after the Big Bang.
