Mentioning Space Coyote by name was fine. By explicitly demeaning SC's credentials to bolster his argument, Brian was out of line. But it is his blog, so he can fire at anyone he likes. I will continue to read the material posted here in any event

The Michigan offensive line has had a better November than the ObamaCare website and it has a brighter future

LaVert's progress makes me wish John Beilein coached our offensive line

Will be praying for your wife, you, and everyone caring for her.

Bob Ufer. Wouldn't this be awesome with him narrating this?

God's blessings to you and your family. Wonderful that you and your wife take so seriously your faith, Lent, and the example you set for your children.

While no doubt intended as a joke and without malice, using the crucifiction of Jesus Christ as the basis for humor is inappropriate. I doubt there will be a reference to the Holocaust or flip remarks about Islam in future podcasts. Perhaps you could work in material about the Dark Night Rises shootings.

I met Mother Teresa in Washington, D.C, but that was scheduled, as she filmed a commercial that I helped arrange -- but she is far and away my best name drop.
When I was a senior in high school, the basketball team played the coaches in an IM floor hockey game. Lloyd Carr grew up with many of my coaches in Riverview, and he played with them. I faked him while he was playing defense, and he drilled me into the bleachers in a no-check league rather than let me have a scoring chance. He looked at me and said, "Sorry kid." He got banned from the league for the hit. I have met him a few times since, and he is a tremendous person.

But the higher the better when it comes to tournament matchups. Think they will end up as a 5 seed
|2 years 17 hours ago||Mike Valenti is an Entertainer||
Mike Valenti is a very good radio talk show host, despite his anti-Michigan bias. I listen to his show because it is thought provoking and I spend a lot of afternoon time in the car.
He is the Rush Limbaugh of Detroit sports radio -- opinionated and polarizing. He evokes passionate responses, especially on Michigan-related topics. It is a testament to his skill as an entertainer that there are so many mgoblog threads about him and that so many listeners call to gloat when he gets a prediction wrong or his teams lose.

The Harris Poll voters and the coaches rated us higher in their polls, and 5 of the 6 computers rated us higher. That is how life goes. As Spartys have told us for years, "Quit whining."
|2 years 1 day ago||Here is what Palm said at 12:45||
"Oklahoma State trailed Alabama by 342 points in the Harris poll and 166 in the coaches' poll. With the current computer projections, the Cowboys would have to be the mathematical equivalent of 28 points behind in Harris and 15 back in the coaches' poll."

|2 years 1 week ago||This is Michigan State Video||
Wouldn't it be great to see a "This is Michigan State" football video -- 1 BCS bowl appearance in 45 years, no bowl wins in 10 years, 49-7, with clips of Braylon in OT, CMU's onside kick and game-winning field goal, and Mike Hart's Little Brother blast. Go Badgers!
|2 years 1 week ago||Purpose of BCS||
The BCS is designed to match the two top teams to play a national championship game. While not as satisfying as a playoff, it is a lot better than the previous system -- one that frequently resulted in split national championships because of conference affiliations. I am glad that Auburn and Oregon got to decide the championship on the field last year.
|2 years 1 week ago||Not what he said||
He stated that irrespective of what some think, the rules permit the rematch. Acknowledging that these are likely the two best teams and that the rematch will happen does not mean that he is advocating a rematch or that he believes that the rules should allow it. He did not say that there should be a rematch and he certainly had the forum and opportunity to do so.
|2 years 1 week ago||Not to be a Danielson Slappy But ....||
Danielson publicly stated that there should not be a rematch in the BCS championship game before Alabama-LSU game. http://www.usatoday.com/sports/columnist/hiestand-tv/story/2011-11-01/gary-danielson-cbs-lsu-alabama/51031512/1
I did not see anything Danielson said yesterday, but the statement quoted by the OP doesn’t indicate that that Danielson has changed his opinion that only conference champions should be allowed to play for national championships; but rather he is recognizing that the rematch is permitted by the present system. I would be surprised if he now is calling for the rematch. Are there any links/stories indicating that he favors a rematch?
Of note, I called WXYT during that segment in 2006. I asked Danielson if he thought Michigan was a better team than Florida and would win a game between the two teams. He thought Michigan would beat Florida, but that only conference champions should play for the national championship.

Thanks for the insights. I cannot think of another sports-related story that has generated this type of reaction
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Ridiculous Line||
Conclusive evidence that MSU gets no respect and is not a national program. I would bet Sparty in a heartbeat
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Couldn't Help But Think ...||
What if Bob Ufer had been calling the play-by-play at the end of that game. I haven't heard Frack Beckman's call, but I am certain it will go down in Michigan history as one of the great sound bites
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Still Shutter at the Thought||
I played a 20,000 to 1 15-team half-point card and some other gimmick cards at the Barbary Coast many years ago. I lost the first NFL game that finished (Carolina lost to Philly) and my next 13 pickets came in like Secretariat. I put the Panthers on all of the tickets -- with the total possible winnings of $120,000 or so. I lost the Monday night game, but would have hedged up to $50,000. I had winners everywhere and made a lot of money that day, but ...
The sad part is that I went to Vegas to bet heavy on two games that weekend. I bet on Ohio State over Iowa, and OSU led by 30 points in the 4th quarter -- but Iowa scored 21 meaningless points late to cover. Because I lost Saturday, I bet less on Sunday -- and that cost me a ton. I did win the big NFL bet at least.

It is greatly appreciated
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Magic/Bird||
Laettner's game-winning shot is the perfect highlight clip that captures the excitement of NCAA tournament basketball. While the Duke/Kentucky game was incredible, it does not compare to Michigan State v. Indiana State in 1979.

Coach B is the anti-Pete Carroll, who felt the need to criticize Mark Sanchez for turning pro and becoming a top draft pick.

I am still crushed the 1973 Rose Bowl vote; piss on Sparty forever. As the commercials proclaim, Roll Tide.

But hard to believe that Frank and Brandy did not ask Crash Karsch on the sideline about the spot and whether he thought Hopkins got to the marker.
