|2 hours 29 min ago||I'm interested to see how the defense does||
And I'm preparing myself to watch UCLA win by 25.
|1 day 4 hours ago||There are no more facts||
Or at least that's what I've heard.
|1 day 22 hours ago||I met John and Annie Glenn when I was a kid||
I remember him as warm and happy to talk to me even though I must have been the millionth little boy who wanted to shake his hand. And Annie Glenn was very gracious. She also convinced my mother to let me have an extra brownie.
Anyway, John Glenn was a gentleman and a genuine hero.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Oh no||
I just realized that I've lived my whole life without thinking about my brand for even a second. Oh, what have I done?!
|2 days 1 hour ago||Did you watch The Good Place?||
It's not the funniest show ever, but it's worth checking out IMO.
|2 days 1 hour ago||When I first watched Oregon this year...||
...I almost couldn't believe how unimpressive their defensive players were. They were both small and unathletic. RR has had better looking units at Arizona, and that's a low bar.
|2 days 1 hour ago||What's the point of knocking Hoke at this point?||
They man loved Michigan and recruited a lot of the players that helped Michigan make it to the Orange Bowl this year. Did he deserve to be fired? Yes, but that's over.
|2 days 2 hours ago||I wish for his sake that Hoke hadn't taken that job||
You would have needed to be a wizard to make that defense respectable.
|2 days 3 hours ago||True enough||
Michigan's running game at it's best was a collection of B+ backs and an A+ line.
|2 days 6 hours ago||I'm impressed they got the coconut open||
That's really hard to do without a blade of some sort.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Gary looked very agile for a guy his size||
He seemed to play hard. He seems like a grounded young man. He was playing behind a fifth-year senior in Chris Wormley, who had a tremendous season. Gary's stats this year mean very little. There are many reasons to believe he'll be a top player.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Wagner and Wilson need to become the on-court leaders...||
...of this team. Walton, Irvin, and Rahk probably are who they are at this point. They seem like solid guys, but you can't count on them to succeed offensively in each game.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Huh||
The team has looked like a knock-off of Wisconsin circa 2011 at times this year. They showed more grit tonight than they did against Va. Tech. I wonder if the time they now spend on defense has cost the offense. Irvin, Walton, and Rahk combined for 13 points - ugh...It's nice to win. I hope this is the beginning of Wagner becoming the team's on-court leader.
|4 days 23 hours ago||Wagner's defensive lapses||
I wonder if they are partly rooted in his German programs not emphasizing defense. It may be an unfair stereotype, but the European basketball I see tends not to have much defense.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Until proven otherwise, I'm going to assume it's the same...||
...personal issue that Troy McClure felt he had to hide.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Well, I mean...||
...it's a win-win.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Another nitpick:||
I found an actual nit in his hair. I picked it out and ate it, because I am a sociable member of the troupe.
|5 days 17 hours ago||I'm fairly confident it's true for the Super Bowl era, fwiw||
I'm not sure if it's true if you go all the way back to the founding of the league.
|6 days 2 hours ago||This is terrible||
And I applaud it.
|6 days 2 hours ago||Time for revenge for 1991||
I'm looking at you, Terrell Buckley.
|6 days 2 hours ago||I don't think...||
...Jim Harbaugh needs me to make him more competitive.
|1 week 1 day ago||Michigan running backs since the late '80s||
Hart had the best vision and instincts, for lack of a better word, of any running back I've seen at Michigan. I'd want him if I had a mediocre line. He's going to get you something when there's not much there to be had. But I'd take Wheatley, Biakabatuka, or Boles if I had a good line. Those guys were more likely to rip off big gains after the line got them to the second level.
|1 week 1 day ago||Good news and terrible news||
It looks like he has stabilized his life, but his young son recently died.
|1 week 1 day ago||I didn't watch non-Michigan DLs closely, but...||
...Ryan Glasgow was an animal - a dirty, filthy animal, like a greased warthog - all year long. Second team seems unlikely to be appropriate.
|1 week 2 days ago||Indeed||
I would be very unhappy if I were one of Indiana's six football fans and the firing was just about a personality clash.
|1 week 2 days ago||What the...||
Know who you are, Indiana. This reminds me of Minnesota firing Glen Mason.
The only thing that would make this make sense would be some sort of off-the-field issue.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm pretty sure I saw...||
...an exasperated Coach Beilein say, "What are you doing?" to Irvin after the play.
|1 week 2 days ago||ugh||
It's now two-plus years of a team that goes to the corner and curls up in a ball anytime they get hit in the mouth. They lack an on-court leader. They seem like a collection of parts. Walton and Irvin are too often just guys.
It's hard to be very invested in a team that seems to lack heart. That may be a fan/feelingsball way to look at things, but it seems very real.
|1 week 2 days ago||ah - makes sense||
|1 week 2 days ago||semi-thread jack||
Does anyone know why the Army-Navy rivalry has become so one-sided? Has it mostly been coaching? I guess is that the emphasis on football and caliber of athletes available are pretty much equal between the programs.
