I believe he was saying that the best source to go to was Rosen himself, which is what Brandon did. There is no insult there.
|12 hours 4 min ago||Indeed||
Even a bad sun burn is worse than breaking things, IMO.
|12 hours 8 min ago||I have a hard time blaming him re: the weather||
I'm glad I never had to chose between playing for Michigan and living in Florida or Southern California. I'm good friends with the sun and miss him when he's gone.

And thanks for being a great Michigan man!

That was a terrible Christmas.
|15 hours 39 min ago||Hmmm...||
Are we sure the good Michigan news moratorium is over? We should check with the gods before we take this as fact.
|15 hours 43 min ago||The Final Four||
This year has had it's very unpleasant moments, but I can't count it as the worst due to Michigan making the Final Four. That makes up for a lot, in my book, though I did have several minor heart incidents reading Brian's post.
FWIW, my experience was that there was nothing quite so low as losing to App. State and then being toyed with by Oregon the next week, all while knowing that the basketball team was likely to be a dud. So I say 2007 was worse than this year...If I was to give a special award for badness for this year, I would give 2013 the award for "Year When Mediocre Football Started to Seem Par for the Course."

Crowning a champ by having a four team playoff is only slightly less absurd than just giving it the old eyeball test. You really can't have a sound playoff unless you include too many teams to make the thing practical (and destroy much of the meaning of the regular season). I say embrace the fictional nature of the national championship, which shouldn't (IMO) be the end-all be-all of a college football season anyway.
|1 day 10 hours ago||A good question||
I hope the selection committee at least sends SEC teams out west and Pac 12 teams south when they can. Alabama shouldn't get to play in Florida or Georgia, for example.
|1 day 10 hours ago||the problem...||
The problem with it is that you basically can't walk, jump, run, or anything like that without using your big toe, so you just keep re-aggravating the injury - or such is my non-doctor understanding.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Irvin, maybe||
He's not draftable right now, but he seems like a guy who could work his way into being a first round pick at some point.
|1 day 12 hours ago||He always seemed like a class guy||
I hope he really retired because he wanted to...A side note: Brown and Texas won at least ten games every year from 2001-2009.

|1 day 14 hours ago||Did you notice this?||
It seemed like they switched to the 1-3-1 only when Spike was in the game, and I wondered if that was to hide his defensive deficiencies in addition to changing things up.
|1 day 14 hours ago||I said this on Sunday too, but...||
That was one of those calls that reminded me that college basketball sometimes makes you (or at least me) feel like a chump for caring about it. That was like watching two hours of a movie to see what will happen to your favorite character only to have the screen go black and the words "He died. The end." appear on the screen before the plot is resolved.
|1 day 14 hours ago||re: the inability to win in that atmosphere||
I wasn't at the game, but I had a similar thought. Michigan had all week to prepare, while Arizona played Wed. night. Michigan was at home in front of a very loud crowd (seemed that way on TV at least), while Arizona was on the road tipping off at what for them was 10:00 AM. The deck was stacked in Michigan's favor.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Ugh||
The worst part of the present moment is, as Brian notes, that this might be the most talented team Michigan puts on the floor in a long time, though I still think McGary is not anywhere near 100%. It's tough to watch this squad struggle and then think that we as fans will be rewarded for that by watching two or three starters declare early for the draft...This team can still improve quite a bit, but for now...ugh. The clock is ticking. The season is already a third done. The harvest has passed. Summer is over. And we are not saved.
|3 days 13 hours ago||The team has work to do||
It was a very good effort and felt like a win for a long time, and it's deflating not to pull it out at home. They are not quite ready for prime time...It's too bad Spike can't play defense like Walton or Walton can't play offense like Spike...McGary still doesn't look healthy...The call on Big Mitch was a good reminder that college basketball will make you feel like a chump for caring about it from time to time...Caris LeVert had some nice moments, as did a lot of guys. This day wasn't a total wash.
|3 days 13 hours ago||That call on McGary was great||
Does anyone want to go see a really good movie and then leave when there are about five minutes left? That's what this game was like. What a stupid way to help decide a game...Michigan really fell off in the last couple of minutes, but man...

I'm sorry your grandfather passed away. It sounds like we lost a good man, but it also sounds like he got to live a good and long life (as others said above).
|4 days 11 hours ago||Hang in there, pal!!!||
We'll all be pulling for you guys!
|4 days 12 hours ago||Will this help Michigan?||
It will be 10:00 AM Arizona time at tip off.
|4 days 13 hours ago||Evil Ace?||
Is that regular Ace with a beard, or is that an evil Ace? A certain Star Trek episode makes me fear it's the latter.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Agreed as well||
His banning - its manner as much as the fact of it - remains a odd moment in my mind.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Kirby Smart||
I love that he's listed as getting $1,150,000 in "school pay" and $350 in "other pay." I'll bet it's the $350 that really pushes Alabama over the top as a place to coach.

People have caught up to their S&C program, which was ahead of its time at one point.
|5 days 14 hours ago||basic parameters:||
Did the poster accuse another poster/mod of having sex with his mother? If so, I want to see that poster do something really nice for the mother involved. I'm talking taking her out to dinner - and Subway doesn't count.
Did the poster accuse another poster/mod of beastiality? If so, I want to see an apology to the poster/mod and the relevant animal. Sheep have feelings too.
Did the poster take part in what became a personally nasty fight about the competence of Al Borges? I want the poster to apologize to the other posters in the fight and give Al Borges a hug. I don't care if he acts like he doesn't want the hug - he wants the hug, damnit. He just doesn't want you to know that he wants the hug.
|5 days 15 hours ago||From afar||
I don't particularly like DB, but I believe that I may look back at him - when he eventually moves on - as a guy who was more-or-less useful for Michigan. I trust that he will take relatively agressive steps for the sake of the Athletic Department. I have not agreed and presumably will not agree with all of those steps, but I appreciate the fact that he's not coasting along. It sure seems to me - again, from afar - that the pre-DB Michigan Athletic Department thought it could rest on its laurels for a long time while the OSU AD ate its lunch.

...just going to start yelling this at random strangers.
|5 days 15 hours ago||Very minor note:||
OSU didn't lose in 2006 until the national championship game.
