Is this where we say something about participation trophies?

I don't see how you could clearly say it was or wasn't on his fingertips. Not over turning seemed like the right call to me.

Not being a dick, but do you have any suggestions? I've been looking for something subtle but nice. Willing to spend mid 3 figures.

To be fair, there were several follow up tweets to this story saying that Hoke had been in the past.

If someone who works for me texted a friend and identified a person they treated by name, they would absolutely be fired. Everyone who works in the medical field is trained on that from day one and is well aware of the consequences.

I think there's some truth to this. Between the offensive philosophy and the skill set Beilein seems to be looking for, I'm not sure there's a lot to take from Alexander. He could obviously do better, but it's a tough spot to be in.

Similar story for me. I have used it for rental car discounts a few times. I really should make more of an effort to use it.

Mine were transferred to me in that 2006 window from my dad who got them in 1959. Hoping that someday my daughters are interested in them.

Agreed. That could have easily been Bellomy @ Nebraska, but Speight got it together and made 2 absolutely essential throws to give UM a chance to win the game.

Sometimes Kansas misses a front end, Trey hits a 30 footer, and the next thing you know you're in the national title game.

Sounded great in section 22. Granted, they were aimed right at us, but I thought it was really good.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||The Audible||
Not B1G or UM specific, but I like the Audible from FoxSports. Steward Mandel and Bruce Feldman are pretty calm and cover a lot of ground. It's a nice way to get a 1000 foot view on the country as a whole. Good guests (Nicole Auerbach, Dave Wandstadt, Joel Klatt) too.

Morris never put his helmet on or joined the huddle the entire game while most of the other qbs did.

Can we get an army of mgovolunteers to act as fact checkers on the next book? Bacon tells great stories, but the factual inaccuracies are distracting.

Nothing made me genuinly happier in regards to Michigan football in the last 4 years than Heiko's press conference coverage. Glad to see him show up.

|22 weeks 3 days ago||The errors in Bacon's books||
The errors in Bacon's books are really distracting and in my opinion really hurt his credibility. Three and Out had big factual errors and he has the 2006 stadium capacity wrong on the second page of the preface. I'm intrigued to know the backstory of all this, but it's hard to have much faith in its accuracy.

I bought Endzone, but I'm still a little skeptical of Bacon. After the factual errors in Three and Out, I've struggled to fully trust his reporting. I'm curious enough to give it a shot.

These are almost not worth posting. I imaging it has to be really frustrating to be one of those reporters. There will never be another Heiko / Borges...

The entire trajectory of the OSU game changed last year when he got hurt. Saying he's not in the same stratosphere of two guys he clearly outplayed last year makes no sense.

|25 weeks 20 hours ago||stretch||
To say they've all been one sided games in this stretch is going a little far. Other than Rodriguez's two trips to Columbus and the Chad Henne rubbar arm game, they have all been competitive games. Not denying the point that you have to actually start winning some of these games, but to say that the actual games have all been one sided is inaccurate.

Not that the exact thing would have played out, but I feel like Donovan buries the shot that Wondo missed against Belgium

Fair question, I am capable of changing a tire. But, with a rental, I felt like going into DIY mode wasn't the best choice.
