The Tigers haven't played well against the Red Sox this season, but Boston is tanking it right now and their pitching has been really awful. The only problem I have with vouching for the Boston matchup is that their lineup is much better than Tampa's.
I think we're better than Tampa Bay and play the Yankees pretty tough, so I'm not concerned about facing them in a longer series where the teams are weighted more than the odds. It's the Red Sox that worry me, so why not face them in a shorter series?

you seem like quite the character.

"I'm trying to ignore the bit that follows wherein "funnest" gets deployed. Football coaches and grammar, man."
what the hell does it matter?

you may have taken that comment a bit too seriously... i do think, however, that if an outfitter change is ever to be made:

that'll be a cute game

I LOVE EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!
|4 years 9 weeks ago||yeah, Omantel doesn't subscribe to espn3,||
but that would have been the obvious choice. thanks for the sites, though. with less than 1 Mbps we'll see how it this turns out.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||I hope your freshman year's||
football team is better than mine... 3-9 was kind of a bummer. Your 2nd home game ever will be under the lights, how cool is that!! Pretty cool. If your roommate is not familiar with the game of football, you must quickly teach and convert him. Immediately, actually. That's your first homework assignment. Go!
|4 years 11 weeks ago||i think their logo should be a 50 yard line||
so that at the conference championship game no one will be able to notice that there's even a logo at midfield and people will be confused.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||I don't understand, Brian,||
why the final of your playoff is always in the Rose Bowl. This seems unfair to me. Why not cycle it through a bunch of venues like they do in every other major sport in which there is a title game? To me, it seems like you picked the Rose Bowl because it possesses some outstanding quality relating to tradition or virtue - as if it's somehow the only correct choice. Perhaps it's because you're a Michigan fan, and most Michigan fans' favorite bowl game is the Rose Bowl. That's understandable, but I don't know how such a glaringly arbitrary and conservative element crept in to your otherwise logically sound and innovative proposal.
And on another note, couldn't the losers of the first round games (#5 and 6) get slotted into the bowl population after they lose? Those could cycle, too, on a regional basis. You could then market a 3rd place game to be played in rotating venues across the country. I just think that if you're going to implement a playoff, you might as well give places like Seattle or Memphis or Minneapolis big money bowl games, too, like basketball does. Why should the outdated vestiges of an poor system benefit from a financially unfair grandfather clause?

i wrote my 22-page term paper last night. unfortunately, someone pulled the fire alarm in dennison while i was in the middle of it, thus temporarily inducing a loss-of-flow panic attack. but now i get to browse mgoblog again!

so not too bad of a performance if we can hang on, especially on the road.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||a presence near the basket||
would really help us out... it's a lot easier to defend jump shooters from 20 feet than ball movement from 10
|4 years 20 weeks ago||so...||
you're predicting 2 losses in a row heading into a bye week? where is the otter. :(
|4 years 20 weeks ago||they can take away our gorgeous home blues...||
but they can never take away our helmets. on an unrelated note, though, we'll have senior denard for this game, which just makes me silly with excitement. it might be the last (and maybe the only) pro field he ever plays on, though, since we all know where the 2012 NC will be held... ahahahahaha i just hope i can get tickets

UM 49 - 21 IU
|4 years 26 weeks ago||why don't they just replace the seats||
at the stadium with comfy beds so we can all wallow in blissful ignorance? or better yet, those psych ward beds with the straps on them. that would be nice...
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Regardless of whether or not||
Regardless of whether or not I agree with you:
"There was a time when UM-OSU transcended CFB that has long passed."
Then why did Brandon say it was so important to try to get them to play twice in the same season? He said that was the best-case scenario. Not, say, Indiana vs. Illinois.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Barcelona||
has the easiest group out of everyone, for sure. Kazan and Panathinaikos will be tough to play at home thanks to the latter's defensive discipline and the former's wintry homeground advantage, though Barcelona will surely be wary of underestimating the Russian champions after last year. The Catalans will run away with the group, though, and should have a chance to run out some of the emerging cantera kids in the latter games. Copenhagen's a bit of a wild card, but you've gotta think it'll be Rubin Kazan and Panathinaikos fighting it out for the second qualifying berth.

This was an absolute debacle of a post.
1. Tried to post.
2. Thought I had posted in the wrong place; edited it.
3. Realized I had posted it in the right place in the first place; tried to re-edit.
4. Was already beaten to the joke.
On top of all this, I just realized I posted on my friend's account rather than my own (he was using my computer last night). I'm going to post below this, as Mongoose. Kindly direct any negs for this shitshow of a post to that account.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||yeah i agree...||
but i don't think that white's departure will cause our season to go kablooeey. the general pattern of malaise though is disquieting.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||i'm always going to remember this day.||
let it live on in infamy, surviving the glee, the dread, and all that falls in between. to witness the simple pleasures in life, to see what one man can do to a community of heroes, it inspires me. aw man, i love all you guys. goodnight with a warm smile.

um, i don't know how to do this. could someone, in pleasant accord with this spirit of giving and merriment, help me out?

UH OH BROKEN!

At least he's got that going for him.
