|1 day 20 hours ago||They come in six "colours"?||
Dammit, Jim, buy American!
|1 day 20 hours ago||Not a huge fan of Raftery . . .||
but agree he looks great by comparison with the rest of the CBS "talent." Raftery at least brings some analysis to the table. If only he wouldn't do his growly voice trick 100 times a game to convey how exciting it is -- a friend pointed this out to me several years ago and it's really distracting once you realize how often he does it. For those of you not already annoyed by this -- you're welcome!
|1 day 21 hours ago||What I learned from the broadcast team||
If you make an open three early in the shot clock, it is a good shot; if you miss, it is a bad shot. #Analysis.
Also, it seemed to be news to Reggie and friends that Michigan did not crash the offensive boards against Oregon. Those who have watched any Michigan basketball this year -- or, frankly, at any time during Beilein's tenure -- would know that this is the usual strategy. Excellent preparation, guys.

makes the sound of a expired horse being flogged.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||An article he wrote after the OSU game||
He interviewed a B1G bureaucrat -- can't remember if named or unnamed, head of officials, etc., and don't care enough to google it -- who assured him that the calls in the game were 100 percent correct, nothing to see here.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||A little of both . . .||
Agreed that the Excalibur incident did Moeller in, but two consecutive 8-4 seasons (each with three Big Ten losses) left him vulnerable to firing for bad behavior. He was definitely on the hot seat before his episode of public intoxication -- not a good idea to give ammunition to those who were looking for an excuse to show him the door.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||That's the spirit!||
Our so-called law-talking guy is way too calm about this -- sad!
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I'm calling Delany right now . . .||
Shouldn't be a problem to make this happen, especially considering (i) his reputation for innovation, and (ii) how receptive he is to ideas originating from Michigan folks.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Is this kinda like . . .||
you mixing up the names of Ace and his older brother Seth?

Thanks for the tip, and count me in as another chortling non-Catholic.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Good idea!||
How hard would it be to establish a satellite "campus" each spring and then shut it down after spring practice?
[Edit -- looks like I needed to read further down the thread where this exact idea was already posted!]
|11 weeks 1 day ago||You know who else would have declared for the draft?||
|11 weeks 1 day ago||That's how I read it too||
Guess that shows how quickly I've tried to purge anything election-related from my brain.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Bowling not a sport?||
Them's fightin' words . . . right after I finish this frame (and my beer).
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Which team do you follow?||
If by "us" you mean Michigan, then you have an interesting defintion of "often." Michigan is 25-2 against Minnesota dating back to 1987.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Good thing Fisch is on his way out . . .||
There's still time to start a bidding war and wrestle DeBord away from Indiana!
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Gotta agree with MaizeRage on this one||
Despite the undoubtedly impeccable qualifications of "random Forbes guy," I choose to believe the word of Jabrill Peppers himself as to what Jabrill Peppers has decided to do. Instead of the "UPDATE UPDATE" to this post, I think the better course is to take the post down. Whatever the likelihood that Peppers will ultimately decide to go pro, it seems like we can wait for, you know, Peppers to actually make that decision.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Not just "everyday" people grabbing women . . .||
but also -- OK, no politics.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||So anyway . . .||
not to be superstitious, but maybe hold off on the reading of tea leaves before the next few big announcements?
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I know Fournette.||
Fournette is a friend of mine. Senator, er, Najee, you're no Leonard Fournette.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||My favorite comment . . .||
"I question the competition they faced." Yeah, not like that murderer's row of ACC opponents.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Only a small step . . .||
from his mastery of lead blocking on sweeps to productive NFL running back.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Unofficially . . .||
it's CMU's official Twitter account. And I mean that (un)literally.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||This was explained in the broadcast . . .||
so apparently you had already started drinking and just didn't know it! The ball hit a Michigan player before rolling a few more yards.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Seeking preclearance from the Moms||
Proposed thread: Was the ball carried more or less than a yard past the 16 yard line? I thought a fresh new perspective would be nice.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Based on what I've seen . . .||
pretty sure 20/20 vision is not a prerequisite -- and it might be disqualifying.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||If Harbaugh kept it to freeze the kicker . . .||
then why didn't he use it for that? There was a timeout before the kick, but OSU called it, and Michigan ended regulation with one timeout in its pocket.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||It was 3rd and goal . . .||
and OSU had about 15 yards to go. So no possibility of a first down short of a TD, and they were in an obvious passing situation. No reason not to call the timeout -- wouldn't have given OSU any additional opportunities.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Brilliant!||
So you're saying Speight only needs to play long enough to complete 8 passes, then we can sit him down to avoid further injury and O'Korn can take it from there? All those analytics and it comes down to this: Speight for 8!
|17 weeks 3 days ago||The best thing about Opponent Watch . . .||
Yes, it's well written. Yes, it's clever. Yes, it's often hilarious. But the best thing about Opponent Watch is that it's posted on Saturday morning right before the game.
It is Saturday morning, right? RIGHT??!?!?!!??
