Depends what you're hoping to get out of it. If you want to learn more about the team, then you're probably better off memorizing the names of all the walk-ons or, I don't know, reading the last three months' worth of football posts and crying softly to yourself.
If you want to be regularly and repeatedly reduced to sputtering frustration by something over which you have no control, then yeah go ahead and watch it. Whatever floats your boat.

I have also been wondering what happened to Mr. Thomas.
Also, forgive me if this has been hashed out in other threads, but have any of the more knowledgeable commenters taken a whack at answering the "why the hell did they move Jake Ryan?" question? Brian's analysis has the ring of truth to my inexpert ears but the coaches presumably know a good deal about football and the team, so there must be some kind of explanation. Right?

marvellous. just got back from a week away from internets. this takes the edge off learning that michigan's region contains three of last year's final four. fuck you, selection committee. bless you, andrew dakich. may your eligibility never expire.

Counterpoint to your asshole friend: My GF spent the whole Olympics, every single time Meryl Davis came on screen, saying, "She's beautiful," and, "Her face is amazing."

I'm unfamiliar with programming and web design, so this might be a stupid request, but could you guys put the Kenpom vs. Expenditures graph up as an interactive? It's neat as-is but I'd love to see who the sad, sad BCS outliers are, and the FCS and mid-majors who spend just a bit but are in the top 50.
If it's too hard or expensive or something weird, no worries. Just curious.

Crawford's SPARQ score is comparable to SPARQ scores of CJ Spiller and Jacoby Ford, significantly higher than Reggie Bush's. Put in all the caveats you want about measurables translating to on-field success, but this kid is a great athlete. Awesome.

State was second in the Directors' Cup at the end of fall sports (behind only Stanford). Michigan is 13th.
Here's to swimming and everyone else making up that lost ground, and I'm not saying they're not little brother and we're not historically better at life and so on - it'd take more than one down M season (or 12) for them to get over the inferiority complex. But, you know, swimming. If we win the B1G in bball and the rest of the winter sports continue to kick ass, then I will recommence ostentatiously lording my fandom over Sparty. Until then, I will be a little more circumspect.

But I am aware that we are now only about 1/12 of the way through. We're riding high but I just keep waiting to get dick-punched by something, like maybe losing to Purdue, Indiana and Nebraska in succession, followed by a discovery that Nick Stauskas bet his buddy $10 he'd beat him at HORSE when they were in tenth grade, Mark Emmert getting a raging erection and vacating all of Michigan's wins over the past two years.
Call it 2013 PTSD.

But I think it's worth adding that Gibbons played in the Iowa game on 11/23, between the OSCR report and Hoke benching Gibbons.

Because I have too few points? So someone should make a thread about Jayru Campbell bodyslamming a security guard at Cass Tech. http://deadspin.com/cops-michigan-state-football-recruit-body-slammed-secu-1507128898
Sparty 4 Life.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||OL||
Coming to this party late to point out the most depressing thing I heard during the game (I forget if it was Musburger or Herbstriet): that OU put up 45 points on Bama with three OL in new positions. The RT had never played RT before. And yet they run-blocked well enough to play-action effectively (if not to actually run much), and they kept the QB clean enough to extend plays and make awesome throw after awesome through. Sure, it helped that Bama's DBs were banged up. But still. 45 points.
I am not smart enough about football or knowledgeable enough about Bama or OU to be able to say confidently that that's all coaching. But it sure sounds like coaching had a huge hand in it. So while I agree that a real live DL coach would be great, what I dream most about is an OL coach who can take our talent and turn it into something better than the 123rd-best unit in the country at TFL.

Glad I'm not the only one who voted for Spike! To the 12 others who chose that one alongside me, I salute you. One of the greatest passes I've ever seen in a basketball game.

he will shed baby fat and gain muscle as his muscles bathe in the natural steroid bath that is puberty. he's fine. if he arrives on campus at 6'7 and 315 with a bit more muscle and bit less fat than he's carrying now he will be the same size as...jake long.
plus it'd be a bit odd to be talking about him taking on the long/lewan jersey number as a guard.

|30 weeks 6 days ago||deign||
I think you mean Bowden did not deign to call for passes that threatened downfield. To say he deigned to do it would be to say that he thinks downfield passes are distasteful but he called for them anyway. The longest downfield throw was 13 yards: it seems that his distaste for unleashing the dragon won out.

Me, too, but I think that's because Mattison sounds so much more optimistic than Borges.
With the O we get a lot about how the interior line has work to do and there's "great competition" for the middle three spots, which means that no one has taken over and is dominating, which scares me. Reminds me of last year.
With the D we get, "Cam Gordon is going to be Kovacs but fast, Mario Ojemudia makes grown men's shirts look like little boys' shirts, Frank Clark can run down WRs at 275, Jake Ryan is as strong as our DL." To quote Brian, fetch my fainting couch.

I grew up in Maryland, down the street from College Park (my middle and high schools were on University Boulevard, so named for UMCP). I know this is a B1G-focused blog for obvious reasons, but let's not forget that this move fucks the ACC, too. Maryland is losing its most ferocious rivalry, and Duke is losing its Michigan State. Among everything that sucks about this for the B1G, that's really sad in my book.
It's my damn birthday today and I was looking forward to potentially two (!) consecutive years of birthdays unruined by college athletics.
This sucks so much.
