|2 days 17 hours ago||I think...||
... Drevno already has our short game under control, and Mattison has greatly improved our iron play, so hiring Fred Funk would be a redundancy.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Yikes.||
In that case, the 2021 and 2022 NFL Drafts are going to be really rough with all of those Brandon Minor, Craig Roh, and rich man's Ricky Barnum types.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Not sure...||
... what Freddy Harris is talking about. DPJ is ranked even higher based on 247's own ranking system (#8) than he is on the composite ranking (#11).
EDIT: As of 1/18, 247 is now reflecting what BuckNekked states above. Not sure why there was a discrepency yesterday. Either his internet sees into the future or mine into the past.
|4 days 22 hours ago||What??||
Henry Ruggs might be the #24 overall receiver--not the #24 overall recruit.
DPJ is currently the #1 receiver on the 247 composite rankings and the #11 overall player.
Ruggs is #158 overall player.
EDIT: As I mentioned above, some posters seemed to have access to a more updated 247 ranking, which didn't display for the rest of us until today (1/18). So Ruggs did jump way up to the #24 overall player in the composite (though 247's own rankings have him ranked "only" as the #17 overall receiver.)

Under those circumstances, it sounds like something Speight might be telling himself as soon as he receives the snap.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Cleveland sports = Detroit sports?||
I'm not one to criticize Cleveland one way or another, and I acknowledge your general point that Cleveland and Detroit have a lot in common, sometimes more than Detroiters would admit, but I don't understand how you are using sports as an example of this equivalence.
"Cleveland and Detroit have both won an NBA championship and lost a World Series" covers over the fact that Detroit has won multiple NBA titles (3), not just one, has won twice as many Word Series championships, roughly twice as many AL pennants, and, while I would hardly argue that the Lions are better than the Browns, both have zero Super Bowl championships and four NFL championships from immediately prior to the Super Bowl Era. And then the Red Wings have won 11 Stanley Cups and are historically an elite hockey team. So, that's 18 championships that people care about to three. Again, I'm not trying to make fun of Cleveland, and I would love for the Lions and Browns to have success, but I don't see the equivalence.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Why...||
... do people keep making this claim?--not really complaining, I just find this to be bizarre.
The guy eating the Dilly Bar was Dan Lehman, Minnesota's phone technician--not Claeys.
Apparently all middle-aged Minnesota staffers and coaches look the same.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Moreover...||
... while Green was the #1 RB to some services (Rivals, Scout), he was not a unanimous, or even a consensus, #1 RB, as ESPN had him ranked #5 and 247 had him ranked #8 (#84 overall player). So, while the OP's point is well-taken, there are multiple reasons to think that Harris is more of a sure thing than Green was.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Wait, wait, wait...||
... Let me guess:
You had seven shots of Jameson's, laced your Yellow-Naped Amazon parrot's seed with cocaine, then dictated this post to your parrot friend, then had him repeat it near your computer, which transcribed it using voice recognition software. Then, cut, paste, post.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The author is dead, man.||
Besides, this piece definitely reads more like an "Ace-ian" pastiche of Brian.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Averaging...||
... the exact ranking of each major service, so as to yield something along the lines of "J'Marick Woods (343.125)" would actually be ideal.
If it's a repeating decimal, six decimal places will suffice. We don't want to burden you.
|7 weeks 22 hours ago||Well...||
... unless I'm mistaken, the only top-100 offensive recruits from the Hoke era--besides a handful of O-linemen, none of whom have really equalled or excelled their recruting profile--have been Shane Morris, Derrick Green, and Drake Harris (and maybe Brian Cole, if you want to include him as an "athlete," though he was in the class that Harbaugh inherited). I suspect that Butt has been the best offensive recruit, though he was a top-200 player, not top-100, at least on 247.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||To be fair...||
... Washington also beat top-twenty Stanford 44-6.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Hmm...||
No one is claiming that Washington went through "Murderers' Row," but here are some teams they beat listed by current Sagarin ranking:
10. Colorado (beat by 31)
13. Wash. St. (beat by 28, on the road)
17. Stanford (beat by 38)
(All ranked above Iowa)
Washington dismantled those teams, all of which feel "pulsey" to me.
They also have a road win over top-30 Utah.
|8 weeks 15 hours ago||Yes and no...||
The ball does slide up the butt of #88 a bit, and, at the furthest point of Barrett's forward progress, the ball does just touch the black undershirt hanging out from #88's jersey...
... The problem is that it touches the undershirt on the back right side of #88's body when that part of his body is still short of the 15 (by like four or five inches).
To be clear, I thought there were more blatant bad calls, but--assuming you aren't just trolling--I don't understand what you're seeing.
|8 weeks 16 hours ago||I have two pretty close friends...||
... who root for OSU, and we were texting a bit during and after the game:
One didn't think that OSU got the first down but was happy to take the win.
The other admitted, in general, that "the calls definitely went OSU's way," though didn't realize until after the game that the now-infamous spot was a point of contention. He acknowledged that UM was the better team a majority of the game.
Don't know if that helps...
|8 weeks 20 hours ago||You must be, um, well,...||
... not very bright.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||It was the right call in 2013...||
... because we were serious underdogs and Gardner was playing on a broken foot.
Today we outplayed OSU most of the game, were every bit as talented, and their kicker had already missed two field goals. Moreover, our defense had rarely given up consecutive first downs.
I think Harbaugh made right call. Had we stopped Samuel 8-10 yards in the backfield on third down so that they were facing a 40+ yard field goal in the second OT, it wouldn't have felt like the wrong call.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Sorry if I'm being dense...||
... Why would they need to measure? OSU starts overtime at the 25 yd. line. They need to get to the 15 yd. line. It's not mysterious what constitutes 10 yards in this situation.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Yep.||
I believe Kalon wore a white undershirt and '340' at Sound Mind, Sound Body.
Please don't send Thomas this picture with a UM jersey photoshopped on, along with the caption "Your a baller."
|13 weeks 1 day ago||"Waffling in mediocrity"||
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Another way of putting it...||
... that I like:
UM finished with exactly twice as many points as Rutgers had yards.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Not sure if..||
Either way, it's fitting.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Between the photoshop...||
... the jerseys, and the pose, this image just about hits the "meta" saturation point... and is otherwise just awesome.
|16 weeks 20 hours ago||Struggles with pad level.||
Plays way too high.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||+1 Insightful||
Sad, but true.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Yeesh...||
Without the toilet, I'd hate to smell that couch once it starts burning.
Any chance you'd consider including a cooler... ?
|17 weeks 3 days ago||If it helps...||
... The cyclist was reported to be a student, presumably at OSU, so...
(But, seriously, I would hope that he's is okay.)
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I don't know how to break this to you...||
... but you can actually be left-handed and be a member of the clergy, even if you are Catholic.

... during the Charlie Weis era.
