Didn't even get the album title right. Faceplant.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Yeah||
Their first goal showed why the refs were not NHL refs. I was glad they managed to get the goonery calmed down, though. Was on the home goal line in row 2 /coolstorybro and it was a great crowd.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Don't think I could hate more things about Ohio||
1. Extremely high camera angle
2. Value City sponsorship of arena
3, Outline of Ohio on floor
4. Godawful scorer's table
Please shoot me now. Thank Dog Shameless is on tonight.

It was brutally hot, the game was terrible, Michigan did absolutely nothing through three quarters, so we left with them down 17-0.
Walking back to the parking lot, we hear a big roar from the stadium. Cool, probably not a shutout.
Almost to the car, roar #2. Beginning to get sinking feeling.
Listened to the winning score with a bunch of other rueful fans. Oh well, at least we had beer.

By which I don't mean Dave Brandon.

eSpire Marketing is a front for NAMBLA.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Different offense?||
It looked to me that the offense was much more trying to go inside this game than usual. Ohio looked a little bigger, causing us to throw up circus shots. Love Beilein, but does anyone think he outsmarted himself?
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Yay.||
|2 years 37 weeks ago||One word: Ufer||
Sometime in the mid-70s I was on a Boy Scout hike, and one of the assistant leaders had the game on. I completely fell in love with Ufer's enthusiasm and word pictures, don't think I missed more than a couple broadcasts after that. One of the few times per year they were on TV, I would turn down the volume and turn up the Ufer. RIP, you marvelous maniac.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Nice.||
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Unbelievable||
Next thing you know, people will be claiming they don't want their daughters to end up in porn.
|3 years 19 hours ago||This is the truth. How many||
This is the truth. How many of the "old guard" would've been supportive of someone with dreadlocks playing quarterback before Denard? And now he's the main focus of national attention. Life moves on, I agree the dog groomers suck (except for that inital "Wolverines!" which echoes Red Dawn), but this will help recruiting.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Point||
Not sure what yours is, but I don't think you're very good at reading.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Politics||
You can't imagine how little I care about yours. But thanks for sharing, you've made an enemy of half the country.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Doesn't suck.||
That is all.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||That's harsh||
I'd give him borderline.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Nice Vocabulary||
Centripetal force FTW!
|3 years 45 weeks ago||BTN Common Taters||
I am almost moved to complain to the BTN about those two Purdue homer morons. Henri, calm me!
|3 years 46 weeks ago||100% concur||
I've said it before, for RR to not ride Denard into the ground this year shows his class. That alone is enough reason to bring him back.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Breathe deep of the irony||
inexcusible lack of attention to detail
Tate worked his way onto the bench in the offseason, and Denard worked his way off it. "Very impressive freshman year" no longer confers starter-for-life status in this program, of which I for one am very glad. Your "Consistent and unrelenting major strategic miscalculations" seems to refer mostly to refer to playing Denard over Tate; as such, I declare fail.
That said, I wish we had a kicker who could kick the ball out of "bounce".
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Kicker Recruiting||
Really puzzled as to why there don't seem to be any kicker recruits being targeted this year?
|3 years 50 weeks ago||Respect for RR||
I had a lot of respect for RR not panicking and running Denard continuously when we got down big. I think that would've been a great way to get him hurt. He didn't seem to get dinged really at all, popped up every play and jogged back to the line.
Growing pains, that's all.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Agree, that's hilarious||
Best substantive comment: "If you put them in space they and the mountain goat receivers will show you your O-I'm-on-the-ground-and-Denard-is-fast face"
|4 years 5 days ago||Michigan Man||
I always hear "Michigan man" as pertaining to the spirit of this great state of ours. Denard Robinson epitomizes it with his humility and hard work. Tate is, maybe, getting there as well.
|4 years 1 week ago||Seriously||
And if Denard had run 15 times in the last couple drives and gotten 100 yards and then hurt, of what would your diatribe have consisted? I never say bad things about someone else on the interwebs but you're a dumbass.

Stradgedy. He's referencing Bugs Bunny.

You had me right up until "thrown".
|4 years 2 weeks ago||Heisman||
Cory McCartney has Robinson No. 1 on his Heisman Watch, ahead of No. 2 Terrelle Pryor, quarterback, and a former Wolverine signal-caller, Ryan Mallett of Arkansas.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||What a difference a year makes||
That young man embodies the best of college football in general and Michigan football in particular. To accept his role behind Tate last year without complaint and then go on and do the work he's done to put himself in this position is truly inspiring. I think he's the real deal.
