I would blitz the hell out of them. I know it's a gamble, but I think that heavy blitzing would be unexpected. They have great wide receivers and their QB has had a strong season, but that's not a reason to be conservative on defense. We have to take some risks and try to force some 3-and-outs by not letting their plays develop.

Agreed. If you can get a good table, it's a great spot to watch the game.

Last time I went here (Duece McAllister's bar!), they didn't have BTN. It replaced the old Checkered Parrot, which was my go-to spot. I live two blocks away.

Nola-based M fan here. There is a special board for M bars, but I'll answer anyway. Cooter Browns is a place for M fans. Lots of beers, cheap food, lots of TVs, but can get crowded during LSU games. It's a beautiful half-hour streetcar ride from the Qtr. Much closer is Tracey's on Magazine, which tends to collect a lot of Big Ten fans. Can get crowded during LSU games, too. I live by Bourbon and I've never been happy with the sports bar options around here. I'd suggest Walk-Ons as a good spot. Of course, you can wedge yourself in just about any other French Qtr bar and some have BTN.

Mary Sue was dealing with a microphone delay playing loudly back at her over the loudspeakers. It is highly doubtful she was anywhere near drunk. Some folks on this board and elsewhere are just trying to believe she was drunk because it's a better story.

Jerry Rice is the greatest wide receiver of all time. That being said, what the hell does it mean that Harbaugh has a collegiate mentality? I can't decipher any of his or Steve Young's comments.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||What do you mean Pioneer||
What do you mean Pioneer doesn't have a good history of making football players? Both Jim and John Harbaugh went there. Probably the only time there will be a Super Bowl where both coaches went to the same high school. Here is a refresher for you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pioneer_High_School_%28Ann_Arbor,_Michigan%29

As much as I hate Brandon (the Smile Committee thing really did it for me), I don't really have any problem with him being an ass to random internet people who fill up his email inbox with unsolicited rants. These aren't normal, kind people he's having a discussion with. The people writing to him are tracking down the AD to blame him for hiring a coach who most of these people supported hiring in the first place. So the AD isn't more clairvoyant than the rest of the country and all the experts. So what? And just because he isn't willing to axe Hoke doesn't bother me. If we want good coaches to come here, we should treat our current coaches with more respect. Sometimes the fan base, as evidenced on this board, can be terrible. I'll bet that if any of you freaking out about DB now were in his shoes and fielding an endless stream of hate-filled emails, how many of you right now can confidently say that you would respond with total politeness? None of you.
As someone who grew up in Ann Arbor, I took pride in Michigan fans for their general respect for the players, coaches, and team, even when times were tough. And when I went to Texas for undergrad I looked down on them for their vitriol, harsh treatment of players who aren't perfect, and general condescension towards any and every aspect of their own football program. But these days we are just as bad. Maybe if your first Michigan game was in the 2000s you lack a frame of reference, but there was a time when Michigan fans didn't lose their composure and demand perfection.
All that being said, DB should be let go for reasons of actual merit. For having transformed the heritage into a tacky "brand," this is reason enough to show him the door.

I haven't seen it but I hope they discuss the legendary Michigan game at the Garden. A young Lew Alcindor attended and said it was a life-altering game to watch.

As a UT grad I'm very happy about this. Austin is a great adventure and UM and UT are kindred spirits.

I was at the Saints/Ravens game last night. Fitz looked great. If the coaches are using preseason games to weed out who makes the final cut, I think Fitz is in great shape after yesterday's performance.

I've tried to use firstrowsports and other sites, but they are always covered in ads, and half the time I can't get a clear feed. Is there something I'm missing here? It would be nice if you could just pay an honest lump sum and get all the games. I read that this year the NFL is going to have a plan whereby a charge of $300 gets you all the games streamed. I don't understand internet stuff!

As long as we are hyping law review articles, here is my University of Denver sports law journal article on historic preservation and the fsiled effort to save detroit's tiger stadium. If you're a tigers fan, or an historic preservation law fan, or you just like Detroit politics, you may find it interesting. http://ssrn.com/abstract=1476644

I remember when Hawaii made it to a bowl game here in New Orleans a few years ago. Best fans ever. Swarmed the city and everyone had a great time. Unlike many other programs which play bowl games here, some of whose fans are professionally stupid and endlessly cause problems.

I'm a Michigan fan, but I think we can all (or nearly all) agree that it is a terrible thing for a young man to suffer a potentially severe injury just before he makes it to the big leagues. Here's Hoping he fully recovers, and loses squarely against Michigan every November.

I hope we can all keep perspective that York is not a lost soul. Every young man makes mistakes. We all have. Let's hope he turns it around and does well.

This is not a bad thread. It is interesting that Real Madrid and Manchester United played today in Ann Arbor, and those of us not there would like to know what the scene is like.
