Apparently Michigan will be playing in 30 years and five months.
|20 min 9 sec ago||Whittingham wasn't commenting||
Whittingham wasn't commenting on Michigan's scheduling. He was just saying that until recently, a program of our stature wouldn't have considered coming to Salt Lake City, because Utah wasn't a prestigious enough program.
|37 min 43 sec ago||The reason we didn't leave||
I don't think he's saying that we'd never leave the Big Ten region; he's saying that until recently, we'd have never considered playing Utah on the road, because they weren't high-profile enough. Now they are.

So . . . why, exactly did you share this article?

So who were these "multiple sources"?
|1 day 17 hours ago||There was a THE KNOWLEDGE||
There was a THE KNOWLEDGE (with no underscore). At some point he was banned - I think it was around the time of the 2007 coaching search. I recall Brian explaining the banning, saying that as the site was gaining visibility, he didn't want people thinking that THE KNOWLEDGE was an actual staff member making predictions.
(That said, it was rumored that THE KNOWLEDGE was actually Brian himself, messing around under the guise of anonymity.)

At least there is clear separation at long snapper.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Martin did a lot of good||
Martin did a lot of good things overall. He oversaw the construction of a lot of beautiful facilities. His one big screwup was the football hire, and it justifiably tarnishes his legacy, but not completely.

That would mean "pass into the blue."
The best translation for "Go Blue" is Allez les Bleus. (Which is a common cheer, incidentally, as France's national teams almost always wear blue at home.)

Ah, the halcyon days of 2007...

I think a non-sarcastic version would be better.

Very important to not confuse THE KNOWLEDGE with THE_KNOWLEDGE. The latter was an imposter.

From this headline I was expecting something genuinely terrible, like a death in the family.
Shane got to swap Doug Nussmeier for Jim Harbaugh. I think he's okay with that.
|4 days 11 min ago||This game was weird because||
This game was weird because it was added late to the schedule, being the Pigskin Classic, so it wasn't part of the ticket package. It was sold as a one-off game and still pretty much filled the place up - a sign of how large the ticket-buying public was. (I think the attendance ended up being announced as 101K and change, but if you look at the crowd shots it looks pretty much full.)
IIRC, Biakabutka was injured early in this game, which left us with a freshman QB and untested RBs (as Tyrone Wheatley had just graduated). The first three quarters were rough and there were calls to put in Brian Griese at QB, but Dreisbach got it done when it mattered.

He's legit. I don't know his entire backstory but he did go to school with Brady and Woodson.

A lot of rambling in this podcast, but he's an interesting guy, so I didn't mind.

Bring back the snarling wolverine, but make it a little smaller.
|1 week 14 hours ago||I don't think Hoke will||
I don't think Hoke will publicly criticize his ex-boss. That just doesn't seem in his character.
|1 week 15 hours ago||I don't know. Gardner||
I don't know. Gardner certainly took a lot of flack from some, but there at the same time, there were plenty who took to his defense, arguing that he was being put in a position to fail by the coaching staff.
With Navarre, playing for a staff that had produced Griese, Brady and Henson, fans rarely shifted the blame for his play on the staff; he had to bear almost all the criticism.
|1 week 15 hours ago||I remember that. It was a||
I remember that. It was a monster play, like 85 yards - although it was a justified holding call IIRC. That was one of the loudest moments I've ever experienced at the stadium.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Now that's a more interesting||
Now that's a more interesting hypothetical. If Harbaugh is on our staff from 2002 onward, maybe he's promoted to OC in '06 and becomes the heir apparent. Oh well.
Having said that, Loeffler was a fine QB coach in his own right and Carr was familiar with his work, as he'd been a GA here to work with Brady.
|1 week 17 hours ago||In 2007, Harbaugh was 4-8||
In 2007, Harbaugh was 4-8 and was just a few months removed from the infamous comments about academics. No one seriously considered him then.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Bill Martin did a lot for||
Bill Martin did a lot for this athletic department. If you compare our facilities now with how they were in 2000, it's pretty remarkable. He also hired Beilein. If he'd have gotten the 2007 football search right he'd be a legend. As it is, it's a stain on a legacy that is still pretty good overall.

I thought the "bumblebee" uniforms were the ones we wore at MSU that year, not the UTL ones (which a lot of people liked).

|1 week 3 days ago||To clarify, the promise to||
To clarify, the promise to Henson was that we wouldn't offer anyone in the class above him, not the class below. John Navarre and Andy Mignery were in the class below him.

Really? I'd hate to think there'd be some asshole filming this on his phone instead of calling for help.

The man boarded the train in Brussels. Security forces must have missed an AK-47-shaped lump in his duffel bag? Sheesh.
|1 week 6 days ago||Hey, this is part of the deal||
Hey, this is part of the deal with having Jim as our coach. He marches to the beat of his own drummer. If he doesn't want to deal with the BTN, he won't.
It's a pretty small price to pay for everything else you get from the guy.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||We as a community need to||
We as a community need to find a way to get over our fired coaches. We already seem incapable of letting any Rich Rodriguez comment turn into a 300-post internecine battle. Let's not do the same for Brady Hoke.
