"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."

Plus one to you, sir, for your consistency between threads and making your reply work to both. It's a great reference, to boot.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Not doing grad school at U of M||
so I didn't have spring break. And I'm in 10 week semesters, so my current semester is almost over. And I'm doing it in my evenings as I'm currently working full time. However, I appreciate the "out" you've provided.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||With your help||
I might just be able to keep not studying for a while, though I expect my want for sleep will drive me to a rush job slash mediocre project. Gotta love the apathetic light at the end of the tunnel.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Formatting Question||
Your parenthetic post script highlights an interesting question: If an emoticon is used to end a parenthetic comment, does that in fact close the parenthesis?

A double IPA from a local micro brew. If you're in NOVA, I suggest you check out Mad Fox. Worth your time.

Thank you very much. I will look in to procuring these.

I've been working on my scotch knowledge for a handful of years now and wouldn't mind actually getting smart on it. Might help me branch out from my comfort zone of Speysides.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Ezeh was responsible for an entire set of downs||
I can't recall when it was, but I think it was in the second quarter; Ezeh was in a on a tackle on 1st down, solo tackle the next play, and on 3rd down batted down the pass. He totally came to play and deserves the week off from bashing.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Clock vs yardage||
I should have been more clear in my original post. My argument is that an intentional grounding should be treated as a sack. A loss of down, distance, and the clock runs. Otherwise the offense gains something they wouldn't otherwise have had if they'd gotten sacked.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Thank you||
But I believe I owe this piece of knowledge to the MGoBoard from some time over summer. Either that or wikipedia.

Those most be Buckeye children. I heard Krampus is Brutus' cousin.

I'm really hoping this is a reference to "Earnest Goes to Jail" because that would make my evening.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Moar blitzing||
I totally agree that bringing a variety of blitzes would help out our defense greatly. However, and please correct me if I'm wrong, hasn't one of Gerg's themes been conservative playcalling? He isn't exaclty known for his blitzes, right? At this point I'm great with the gamble of blitzing and hoping we get useful pressure as opposed to bend-fatigue-plastic deformation-break defense.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||3-4 vs 3-3-5 vs 4-3||
I think BG was calling for 4 down lineman because he feels that our D line would be a greater source of strength as opposed to our linebacking corp or our defensive backs. I don't think he's saying that three down linemen can't work, just that one should play to their strengths.

It's the Silverfox she's hunting.
|4 years 26 weeks ago||Interesting you should mention that game||
I never even heard of it during my time on campus. It wasn't until I cross paths with someone who graduated the year ahead of me in Portland, OR that I learned the game. I then played the next time I was in AA and wondered what rock I lived under during undergrad.

+1 for your avatar. Growing up my dad had to learn to do a "Grover" voice, which was awesome when he'd read "Resting Places". http://www.amazon.com/Lovable-Grovers-Resting-Places-Pictureback/dp/0394...

Why do you have the Huron lightship as your avatar? Are you from PoHo?

|4 years 28 weeks ago||How long is the break between the service and reception?||
I'm going to a wedding this Saturday where the service is at 2 and the reception is at 5. That means that I get the first half before the reception starts. I'm also planning on taking a leave of absence from the reception if it's close in the 4th quarter (which I am expecting to do). Either way, I too object to fall weddings. To make matters worse, the two people getting married are both U of M alums, but I'm quite certain that they don't even know that it's football season.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||One way to offset the costs||
I went to a U of M / WMU game in K-zoo while I was in school and they were handing out "Black Out" shirts with I think "Fox Sports" sponsorship on it. I'm sure someone would be willing to pay to have their advertising worn by 109k+ people. Are we willing to "sell out" like that? I'd be OK with it if that meant having a very well coordinated color scheme.
As a note, I do realize the difference in magnitude between a hockey arena and the Big House.

Were you going for the play on words?
|4 years 29 weeks ago||Let's just hope he's more||
Let's just hope he's more successful than Snidely was in his dastardly deeds. Also, does this mean that Rocko Khoury and David Moosman got in his way last year?

Please reference The Knowledge's season review. I believe it's the Broncos we'll be seeing in the NC game.
