We can smell our own.

to someplace where that thing can't go.

|3 days 8 hours ago||When I was in school a former ND player did the same for Holtz||
I think it was on ESPN, they superimposed the player's lips over a still image of Lou, a la Clutch Cargo. It was fantastic. Can't find the video, a guy put out a plea for it two years ago. Mealer's clip lacks the visual (tough to picture Hoke with a beard) but the audio is top shelf. He was working with Instagram, so he had to speak a little faster than Hoke would in order to finish his sentence. Word choice was very good.

Allowing for a little optimism, it seems likely that we have at least one ass-kicker in each of the three levels of defense: Clark, Ryan, Peppers. Plus we have no huge weaknesses and quality depth basically everywhere. Mattison has to be stoked.

His opponents' offensive execution reminds me a bit too much of last fall.

BTW Miami was the collegiate destination for a plurality of the middle class kids in my suburban Cleveland HS. Typically 1-2 kids a year went to UM. We played Miami early in my senior year at UM, and one of Miami's placekickers was from my HS. I swear I saw the whole town show up in Ann Arbor that day. I know the mayor was there.

When I changed jobs a few years ago I fell out of the habit of going to the dentist. I finally made an appointment last fall, coincidentally the Tuesday after the @MSU game. Between that game, the exam/cleaning, and the deep scaling periodontal appointment that occurred two days later, I'm not sure which was the most painful.
|4 days 7 hours ago||Hadn't heard that about Pryce||
I thought it was Damon Jones (a guy with a host of red flags in HS btw) who had a pipe bomb in South Quad. Or were there two such stories.

throwing to Joe Kerridge.
|5 days 2 hours ago||He got a lot of media attention for it||
So yeah. #creatingthefuture
|5 days 6 hours ago||Loved that one||
He's tough to spot but I believe that Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul!) is in that sketch.

I took my daughter to a game in 2012 when she was 5 1/2. It turned out to be the driving rainstorm Illinois game, so we stayed at our friends' house until halftime when the weather calmed a bit, then attended the second half. I told her "we'll go to another game when the weather will be better." She looked thoughtful for a moment and asked "How will you know?" I said "Good point."
We went to the Minnesota game last year and it was beautiful.
I've seen fans with babies and toddlers in the Stadium and they generally look miserable. The kids can't follow the game and are bored, and they are less tolerant of adverse weather (heat, cold, or precipitation). My son just turned four and wants to be included, but I'm going to wait until 2015 when he's five and a little more patient.
I think you'll all be happier if you wait a few years before bringing her to the Stadium.

But I'm a big boy and I'm not afraid to change my opinion on something when when I gain a new perspective.
|6 days 1 hour ago||I dislike propaganda either way||
But I can't help feeling it's unfair that all media outlets in Ohio are vying for the title of biggest OSU ass-kisser while the Free Press feels their best business move is to print every nasty thing they can dig up or make up about UM.
|6 days 1 hour ago||Just looked through the play-by-play||
Fucking terrible. On those drives, we
1. Went from their 34 to their 25 in four plays, threw an interception.
2. From our 24 to their 33, incomplete pass on fourth down.
3. A one-play drive, Hart's rumbing bumbling stumbling 54-yard TD to take a one point lead, Brandon Minor run (!) for 2pt conversion failed.
4. From our 43 to their 26, Gingell's missed FG.
5. From our 34 to their 20, all yards on a single pass to Manningham. We had to try a kick because only 6 seconds left. Blocked.
Our defense was stout on four straight drives, on which ASU netted -11 yards. Then we took the lead. Bork Lazer had one 18-yard rush and four pass completions for 55 yards on that drive. They kicked the game-winner on 1st and goal from the 5 with 0:30 left because they had no timeouts.
|6 days 1 hour ago||The Mike Hart TD was glorious||
Right up there with his HS highlights imho. He never got to full speed but kept changing direction and found the endzone after 54 yards. But since the game turned out the way it did, that didn't get any attention.
|6 days 2 hours ago||I heard that||
through the grapevine.
|6 days 2 hours ago||I am, in fact, evil||
but I don't have an empire.
|6 days 3 hours ago||Whistling past the graveyard||
I looked at App State's roster in 2007 and saw a bunch of 250-lb defensive lineman. I figured we would bowl them over all day.
|6 days 3 hours ago||Gross||
|6 days 6 hours ago||I expect you will||
go on. Look, I feel the same way about letting bad teams hang around. 2013 was a depressing season and included a lot of bad things. Let this season get started before you strike up the dirge.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Scheduling intertwined home-and-homes||
Va Tech and Washington in the same years is very encouraging. I hope we can somehow do the same in the Arkansas years, a road game in 2018 and home in 2019. An ACC team would be nice. I really want a road game at Pittsburgh, the closest real non-conf team to Ann Arbor and even closer to my home in Cleveland. Pitt has Penn State in that arrangement (in Pittsburgh in 2018, at Penn State in 2019) so that probably won't happen. I see they're hosting Delaware to start 2019, so they must not mind the helmets.
|6 days 7 hours ago||My best friend for the past 30 years attended Ohio State||
It never seemed appropriate to ask him how he managed to spend 5 1/2 years there and not graduate. I think he changed his major a few times. He now has a bachelor's and master's degree from Kent State, so all is well.
