|1 week 5 days ago||Another way of putting it...||
... that I like:
UM finished with exactly twice as many points as Rutgers had yards.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure if..||
Either way, it's fitting.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Between the photoshop...||
... the jerseys, and the pose, this image just about hits the "meta" saturation point... and is otherwise just awesome.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Struggles with pad level.||
Plays way too high.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||+1 Insightful||
Sad, but true.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yeesh...||
Without the toilet, I'd hate to smell that couch once it starts burning.
Any chance you'd consider including a cooler... ?
|4 weeks 20 hours 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.)
|4 weeks 20 hours 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.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Especially...||
... during the Charlie Weis era.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||That's right.||
All of those guys are pretty elite weapons. But I think the original point has some merit. Outside of some sweeps and some packages for Jabrill, none of those guys provide us with an elite running game. While not impossible, it's difficult to win a conference championship with a "game-managing" QB, if you lack a ground game that can grind things out between the tackles. Fortunately, we have a good defense, good special teams, and a staff that will ensure that the players continue to improve, but we do need Speight to keep getting better, along with the running game, if we expect to finish the regular season 11-1 or better.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I want to be sympathetic...||
... to your side of the argument.
But, then again, your name is 'Spaz'.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Looks like...||
... the same thing Smith did on his first nice run. Smith compensated by breaking like four tackles.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||"The art of route running"||
Grant Perry should check Ancestry.com to verify that he's related to Jim Price. Maybe he just took in Tigers games on the radio growing up in metro Detroit. Was Grant also sucking on a mint or hard candy while doing this interview?
Seriously, though, this kid has been a very pleasant surprise.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||He said the opposite of that.||
I think you misheard.
In the post-game presser, Harbaugh said Speight won "not by a WIDE margin" because all the quarterbacks have been consistently good. According to Harbaugh, "Wilton was... just a little bit... just a little better."
He talks about this about 6:00 minutes into his press conference.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||"I used to think..."||
... posting a bunch of pro-OSU comments was a good use of an MGoBlog account, now I'm thinking it's a "tired look."
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Ha!||
Get used to these sorts of things happening once you have three or more kids. I've finally entered into the stage where I pretty consistently call mine by the wrong name.

"Davidus fecerat vere"
#fixed (I think)
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Insouciance...||
... thy name is G. Q. Jay.
Even James Bond is impressed.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||Well...||
He was a composite 5-star and a 5-star on Scout and Rivals, but at least at the time he signed with us, he was a 4-star on both ESPN and 247, and the 8th best RB in his class on 247. I'm not disputing that he was very highly ranked, but there wasn't the sort of consensus regarding his elite status that there has been for players like Fournette, Peppers, Gary, et al.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||This...||
... actually seems fairly consistent with his posting history, and is not something totally new.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||??||
This is the internet, where everything can be interpreted in various ways, but I read "thoughtful people are okay with [sustained success]" to mean that accepting consistent winning without perennial top-five status is hardly a crazy position. You can accept less than elite athletic standing without being thoughtless--since there are other goods to be preserved. That doesn't mean that the OP is insisting that his position is the only thoughtful position--thoughtful people can also exist on the other side of the debate.
Of course, I could be wrong...
|38 weeks 2 days ago||Ditto.||
I was making a bet with myself that, if I mentioned "Methods of Dance" by Japan, it would be the only Japan reference on the board. I'm pleased to be wrong.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||"And his senior season...||
.... did not show improvement."
Magnus, hardly one to shower praise where he thinks it unmerited, was positively astonished by how much Weaver improved in his senior season. Clearly you disagree. I'd be interested in hearing what similarities you see between his junior and senior Hudl film.
|43 weeks 3 days ago||It's a running gag.||
Just to clarify.
|44 weeks 21 hours ago||+1 Sneaky||
... You almost had me there for a minute, RollDamnTide/WolverineInABag!
NIce analysis, though.
|44 weeks 22 hours ago||When he pancakes...||
... opposing D-Linemen, we'll be calling him Jake MAULerson!!
(Try the prime rib, tip your waitresses, etc.)
EDIT: I now see I was beaten to the obvious punch by "Black Socks." Great minds... ?
|44 weeks 1 day ago||I also...||
I also heard* what he heard**.
* read on MGoBlog
** made up
|44 weeks 4 days ago||And Carl Weathers...||
... from Arrested Development.
|45 weeks 1 day ago||I'm hoping...||
... He didn't (allegedly) punch that window after hearing that he didn't win the Paul Hornung Award. I mean, it's not anybody's fault that our fan votes only counted towards 1/17 of the total voting.
(But seriously, this is sad.)
|45 weeks 1 day ago||Honestly...||
... and this is kind of embarrassing to admit, but I pretty much always think it's actually a picture of Magnus, and I only ever remember that it's Brandon Graham upon rare acts of reflection.
(This of course assumes that Brandon Graham doesn't have a robust blogging hobby on the side, under the aliases of "Magnus" and "Thunder.")
