I dig having the angry sailor wolverine on there but does it have to be right above the crotchal region? Couldn't it be above the name on the back or something?

Fair question, and I have thought about it. But family stuff can get sensitive and I figured I'd leave it alone and continue wondering at one of the few persistent questions in my life that the internet can't answer. I don't know the guy THAT well.

I had forgotten, after all the misery, that Morris was a legit elite recruit. Here's hoping that Harbaugh can Harbaugh the Hoke out of him.

Dear Ondre Pipkins,
Please be healthy and an animal this year and play yourself into the NFL, you big lovable galoot of a young man. I would very much like to see you replicate the Alan Branch domination walk shot, preferably with JT Barrett/Cardale Jones playing the role of Anthony Morelli. Thank you in advance.
On an unrelated and truly irrelevant note, I'm friendly with Ross (Taylor-)Douglas's older brother, who uses the hyphenated last name instead of just "Douglas". Wonder why Ross went without the "Taylor-" part before.

After reviewing the full lot, I stand by this gif. The helmets are almost uniformly (no pun intended) horrible.

We broke the record in DC, too! Five whole degrees Fahrenheit! I know that's not as cold as poor Michigan and Vermont and so on. But still, it's too cold. And we are not inured.

|1 week 6 days ago||Similar programs are||
Similar programs are generally not comparing themselves with a team on Ohio State's level. Urban is a capital-g Great coach and they are loaded down with talent on a year-in, year-out level not exceeded by anyone except Alabama.
This is the thing: Even if Harbaugh is every bit as awesome as we hope he'll be, we're still a big step behind OSU now. So a five-year turnaround is too long if the baseline is "be watchable, beat up on MSU and the rest of the B1G, and go to the Rose Bowl," but it's plenty realistic if the baseline is "be every bit as good as OSU, if not better." And that seemed to be the criterion that OPs were using here.

The "aha" moment for me came during that interview he gave to the Daily, in which claimed, with some heat, "I'm not tone deaf!"
What he meant, in context, was that he has feelings that can be hurt. Lacking those feelings is not what "tone deaf" means, and the fact that he incorrectly used a phrase that profoundly describes him was about as neat a summation of the man as could possibly exist.

Maybe, but if Tampa doesn't take the kid from their own back yard I'll be pretty surprised.
|2 weeks 4 hours ago||Agree, it's not surprising||
Agree, it's not surprising that the best teams on paper are the blue bloods: Carolina jumped out, Georgetown as the OP mentioned, Duke, Kansas. More fun to look at who's surprisingly strong: LSU and Cincy as you mentioned but also Memphis.
It'd be fun if you had to fill a 12-man roster. Memphis's starting five is dirty, I wouldn't want to play them, but I bet the more blue blooded teams could wear them down or force foul trouble and then coast.
ETA: Also, I would take us over OSU in a heartbeat. No homer. Rudy T was a beast.

Pretty good odds that Duke has a kid named "Tyus" in consecutive classes. That's weird.

If a Harbaugh offense never checks down to RBs but still scores a lot of points, does anyone give a shit?

watched the whole thing, don't regret it.
going to an event this weekend where the johns hopkins medical faculty serve as card dealers, croupiers, and bartenders and the med students pretend to gamble and then buy raffle tickets for, like, the head of pediatric neurosurgery to cook them dinner. looking forward to rocking my suit 'n tie on a saturday.

Ace, what I want to know is, when he answered your question, did you get a little flushed and sweaty like when your crush talks to you in middle school?

This system works great until you meet a team stacked with 18-year-old McDonald's All Americans in the tourney and they crush your hardworking grit machine into dust. Or until a random team gets hot (god I hate UConn) at the right time.
