We're talking about a team that has won ONE playoff game in my lifetime, and I'm no spring chicken. You can't just stumble into being that bad -- you have to earn it, particularly in a league that is designed to achieve parity. As you say, the only case for being a Lions "fan" is to embrace the one thing they have consistently excelled at -- finding new ways to lose. To root for them to win is like hoping for incompetence to be rewarded.

They're doing a great job getting past the blockers, but maybe they need to spend more practice time learning what to do when they get to the punter? There is definitely an art to taking the correct line of approach where you can block the punt without getting a piece of the punter.

Somebody get the word to Ace and BiSB -- they don't seem to be aware of this.
|1 week 4 days ago||A "flood" of content, eh?||
Look out, Seth, you've got a deluge of criticism coming your way for that remark . . . .

Don't go back there . . . .

the cable guy always shows up several hours late, so you would've missed an 8 p.m. game anyway.

you live in a box under a bridge for some other reason?

Do you have any scientific support for that?
|1 week 5 days ago||Thanks for the offer . . .||
but not necessary. We've already got a dedicated board for that . . . .

Somehow your post is timestamped a minute later than the guy who asked the question, and yet your post appeared first. No need to be a show-off -- next time wait for us to ask our questions before you answer them . . . .
|1 week 5 days ago||That's mean . . .||
Would it have been so hard for the powers-that-be to consult all the folks with kids before rescheduling the game?
|1 week 5 days ago||That explains it . . .||
I noticed in the "1st Half Stats" graphic that Maryland somehow managed to rack up 151 rushing yards -- a pretty good total for one half -- but only 5 first downs. Then I read through Ace's play breakdown and it started to make sense . . .

So I think we're still a couple short.

if it's more than a furlong, don't go for it.

That's just crazy talk, and the NFL talking heads will set you straight.
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||Similar thoughts after watching . . .||
Since Denard is out for a few weeks with an injury, can we bring him back to coach Rudock on how to complete a downfield pass? In those clips, Denard repeatedly puts it up for grabs when his receiver is covered, but hits the receiver in stride when he's more open.
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||Bittersweet . . .||
Every time I see this, I can't help but remember that Hoke/Borges kept Denard on the sideline for nearly the entire 4th quarter of this game.
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||Let's not jump to conclusions . . .||
Jay Paterno doesn't say what "recent events" he has in mind. Maybe he's seeking to stand up for, say, undocumented workers in light of the anti-immigration rhetoric of some leading Republican presidential candidates?
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||Don't apologize for the rant . . .||
but you should apologize for not yet punching the fantasy league dude. I seldom advocate physical violence, but I'd make an exception in this case.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Could also be noted, however . . .||
that Morris's two starts (and most of his stats) were against K State in a bowl game and a solid 2014 Minnesota team. He hasn't gotten the opportunity to pad his stats against a very sub-par UNLV team and a so-so (at best) Oregon State. It could also be pointed out that Morris has played only under Hoke and his staff, while Rudock has played only under Harbaugh and his staff -- I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to decide how much of an advantage that is for Rudock.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yes they do . . .||
It just blows in the opposite direction.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Looking at that picture of Beauregard (the Rebel mascot) . . .||
are you going to tell him he's NOT a gentleman? Them's fightin' words -- well, that and telling him he can't own other people anymore . . . .
|3 weeks 4 days ago||On that note . . .||
I now have the proof I've been looking for that the ever-increasing tempo of Let's Go Blue (and the Victors) is bad for our health. The way it's going, you'll be doing a drum roll on some poor guy's chest before you know it . . . .
|3 weeks 4 days ago||No downvotes for this post?||
Surely you must have said something to offend someone? Either the folks around here are getting soft, or Seth is right that you are the "nicest Michigan fan you'll ever meet."
Seriously, though, thank goodness for this week's "Dear Diary," because I otherwise would have missed your post and that would have been a shame. Your contributions to the podcast are invaluable -- you always seem to come up with the statistics that perfectly capture the "BIG TENNNN!!!" moments from the past week's games -- but this post is at a whole 'nother level. Here's hoping you are through the worst of your health issues, and that you are able to continue to enjoy Michigan games and tailgating into your 50's, 60's, 70's, and beyond!

they seem to be having enough trouble as it is, so maybe they're not quite ready for "real" teams?

There were some crazy atmospheric conditions in Ann Arbor on Saturday. The pants actually looked blue and black to me . . . .
