|1 day 12 hours ago||Mowins is fine||
We could do a lot worse with a BTN crew.
|1 day 16 hours ago||It's true||
I wish I could be as stoked about Michigan as USC fans are about the Trojans, but I sadly remain un-stoked.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Not a bad thought||
A lot of people also don't realize how important flossing is. I've read reports in which dentists say it's more important than brushing. That may sound crazy to some people, but the point is that the $1.30 you spend on dental floss is one of the best investments you can make. Your teeth are your best friends.
|1 day 20 hours ago||With all respect to Jane and Ace...||
...I'm trying to avoid crashing into clinical depression. I have plans this weekend.
|2 days 17 hours ago||It sure feels like...||
...your last sentence hits the nail on the head. But I'm no health marketing person.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Agreed||
Maybe I lack imagination, but it's hard for me to envision someone deciding to have a mamography because Devin Funchess wears pink gloves for a month.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I confess:||
There is no such place as Dayton.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Did Alabama use a slot guy in this way last year?||
I don't remember that, but I only saw them play a few games.
|2 days 21 hours ago||You have to respect the QB's 70% completion percentage||
It will be interesting to see Michigan's new bump-and-run coverage against App. State's passing offense.
|3 days 12 min ago||I'm not sure about the first game, but...||
...Michigan played at Minnesota on a Friday night in 2003.
|3 days 16 hours ago||FWIW||
I think Isaac will start in 2015. His h.s. clips were significantly better than Green's or Smith's to my untrained eye.
|3 days 16 hours ago||IIRC||
People were questioning Jackson a good bit on the blog by the end of last season.
|3 days 17 hours ago||I hope you're right||
I momentarily reconsidered my commitment to this season.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Michigan has to beat App State to get back on track||
From CS Lewis:
“We all want progress. But progress means getting nearer to the place where you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.”
--Also, good to see you!

Record against the rivals: 1-2
All of Michigan's losses are close.
The defense is very good but not good enough to win games on their own.
Smith gets the majority of carries and yards among the RBs. DG still leads the team in rushing.
The OL starts off as seal pups being clubbed to death but work their way up to not quite middling.
Peppers returns an interception for a TD in one of the first four games.
A ferret runs onto the field during the Indiana game. He is wearing a vest, but he is not anyone's pet.
Rutgers and Maryland both prove to be annoyingly tough games.
Space Coyote becomes exhausted from defending Funk.
Hagerup excels. Wile struggles a bit on FGs.
The season ends with most of us optimistic for 2015.
The offseason: We laugh. We cry. We are born again in a fast German car.
|1 week 22 hours ago||Has he ever said he was wrong?||
That might change some opinions.
|1 week 22 hours ago||These are fun to watch||
But I wish these teams were better. Playing games is better than not playing games, but you have to wonder how much more beneficial these outings would be if the opponents were tougher.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Absolutely||
He's not classically handsome, sure, but he's a reliable guy with a good sense of humor. And you just want to cuddle him.
|1 week 1 day ago||The second statement...||
...is the damning one. I don't think RR's QBs or Meyer's QBs make their own audibles. But I can't think of any reason not to give someone on your side time to audible.
|1 week 1 day ago||Right||
I'm 99% sure the QBs - no matter who it was - didn't have to worry about finding the Mike under RR, because RR and/or Magee would signal in an audible (or not) before every play.
|1 week 1 day ago||You can still edit the title and text||
|1 week 1 day ago||Best non-conference schedule since 1991?||
They played @ Boston College, ND at home, and FSU at home that year.
|1 week 1 day ago||I agree re: the record (more-or-less)||
I think the defense and passing offense (and special teams?) can beat most of the teams on Michigan's schedule so long as the rushing offense isn't imploding.
|1 week 1 day ago||That's my impression, but...||
...maybe I'm misunderstanding people.
I'm with you. I'd be pretty happy with 65th.
|1 week 1 day ago||I can't even find that online||
Did a cave man say that? :)
|1 week 1 day ago||Rebounding won't be a problem||
Michigan has Mitch McGary.
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't think...||
...wondering whether the first-team OL from the scrimmage will be the first-team OL next Saturday is the same thing as being in denial. FWIW, I was attacked a day or so ago b/c I said the OL would likely not ever be above average this year.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yeah...||
Kalis was out, so it seems to be true that the entire starting five weren't present. And Glasgow was hurt, so you could count that too.
I'm never inclined to trust an assertion that a coaching staff has a super-secret plan, but I also don't get to visit U of M practices.
|1 week 1 day ago||I've wondered about how fired up the players will be||
None of them were on the team, of course, in 2007, and none of the coaches (save Fred Jackson) were around either. My guess is that the players and coaches care less about revenge than we do as fans, but I don't know.
|1 week 1 day ago||Per Coach Hoke...||
He wanted to simulate a game experience - running through the tunnel, being in front of fans, etc. I think he even said he wanted to simulate a night game, but my memory is foggy with regard to that detail.
