|20 hours 33 min ago||And now our pets' heads are falling off||
I feel for Texas fans these days.
|1 day 3 hours ago||I'm with you, but...||
...I don't think we're trying to be miserable. I just prefer Michigan to be lying in the weeds, because I think it's easier to win games from that position.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Using a computer to commit a crime||
This goes back to the Code of Hammurabi, which included enhanced penalties for a violation committed using an abacus.
On a more serious note, I very much wish this had not happened.
|1 day 8 hours ago||I want to not care about recruiting, but...||
|3 days 5 hours ago||He didn't have that information when he made the decision||
You go for two down 21-9 because it gives the chance to get within ten (obviously) and because, if you fail to convert, you at least know right then that you're going to need two touchdowns. Needing two touchdowns (and two extra points) v. needing a touchdown (and an extra point) and a field goal is going to change the way you approach the rest of the game. You don't want to miss on a two-point conversion with a minute left down 21-19 and realize you should have been in more of a hurry.
I agree with Brian that Kelly should have gone for it again when they made the game 21-15. They already needed a touchdown. You might as well know ASAP whether you'll need more than one score to tie or win if Clemson makes it to 24.
|3 days 7 hours ago||I agree re: Kelly's decision to go for two||
Jim Mora's decision to take a safety down six against Arizona State was another story. That made little sense to me, though the announcers in the game said UCLA's punter was struggling.
Also, CB No. 8 is one of my favorite players. I'm glad he lept from EA's NCAA Football to real life.
|3 days 7 hours ago||You are correct||
It's the greater of three games or 30% of the season. This stinks.
|3 days 8 hours ago||I always enjoy these||
The clip of Homer shooting Marge in the face with the make-up gun is icing on the cake.
|4 days 20 hours ago||They're great, IMO||
It seems like a quarter of the country wears black and/or grey. I like that Hawai'i stands out.
|4 days 21 hours ago||Agreed re: the toxicity factor||
It seems like momentum sometimes goes against coaches so much in certain spots that you have to part ways even when the guy is really good at his job. It almost doesn't matter why a fanbase dislikes a coach at some point. There can be enough negativity around a program to sink anyone.
|4 days 22 hours ago||I think he would not be a good fit.||
The coach of Texas has to be part politician. Dantonio is an excellent coach, but I think he'd struggle with the politics. And I don't mean that as a knock on him. It's just a matter of personality.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Bad times at UT||
They would struggle to find a better coach than Strong, IMO. I understand the frustration of their fans, but Texas was in a pretty bad way when Mack Brown left. And the rise of TCU and A&M makes things harder than they were for Texas a decade ago.
|4 days 22 hours ago||My hottake:||
There are no teams this year that would beat any of the teams in last year's playoff.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Lewis is really fun to watch||
He's so close to guys that they could share a jersey.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Wow||
They've got a hell of a class. There's no way around that.
I was afraid of this happening when Michigan gave up on Winston, but the coaches obviously know things that I don't.
|5 days 23 hours ago||There are so many good things in that clip||
Austin Hatch was out there helping with practice. LeVert, Walton, Wilson, and Spike all look pretty healthy. You can see the good weight Mo Wagner has added.
|6 days 7 hours ago||Thanks||
|6 days 7 hours ago||I applaud you both for this||
|6 days 7 hours ago||Dumb question:||
You buy a ticket on tiqiq. How do you get it? It's too late for the seller to send it to you. Can you pick it up at the stadium?
|6 days 21 hours ago||Fashion?||
I fear that my hips would look absolutely huge in those little skirts.
|1 week 4 hours ago||Michigan wins 28-8||
|1 week 4 hours ago||Rudock||
He reminded me in that game of Craig Krenzel, QB for the 2002 OSU national championship team. He wasn't going to win the game by himself, but he helped move the ball in various ways while never giving BYU an easy path back into the game. I'll gladly take that version of Rudock.
RE: the second half play when he failed to throw to Butt, I didn't mind that too much. The underneath guy is screaming into the play - so there's a bit of risk - and not turning the ball over at that point was much more important than a first down.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Just an opinion||
Definitely not a guy feeling. Sam said on the air that things are not at all wrapped up.
|1 week 9 hours ago||If I had to explain humanity to aliens...||
...I would make sure they read The Butter Battle Book by Dr. Seuss.
|1 week 9 hours ago||It would be hard to talk about this...||
...without getting into politics pretty quickly. I don't mind it being posted at all, but I can see why it would be deleted.

But one time he coulda been the champion of the world.
|1 week 2 days ago||We should try to have more threads that are not about...||
...the blog but about the threads themselves. Ex: "This thread contains only false assertions."
|1 week 2 days ago||I don't think it stands for anything||
I believe it's just used to note that the thread is about the blog itself.

It's a very rare medical condition.
