Nothing beats that.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||really had two choices||
Hey it could have been Gardner.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Might be OK||
I bet we botch at least two exchanges with one of those being a turnover. I'm also guessing that we fail at blitz pickups at least twice. That being said I'm guessing our running game is nominally better to the tune of 140ish yards from running backs on the day. If there was ever a time to try to change the line though, this is the game to do it. Minnesota looks doubleplus ungood and we've had two weeks to get this straightened out.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Blame the Media||
If you take a look at violent crime statistics http://www.bjs.gov/index.cfm?ty=pbdetail&iid=2221 It's pretty clear that we as a society really are moving forward. The issue is that death and destruction sell ads for media. People go to CNN more when there's a mass shooting in Chicago or bombers in Boston then they do when there's a report released that says; hey just FYI things are getting better. At some point confirmation bias takes over and things look pretty bleak. Thankfully, it's entirely inaccurate to say there's more violent crime today than say 30 years ago. I can't imagine it helps this kids parents with what they're going through, but we're heading the right direction.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe I Missed Something||
I'll wait till the UFR comes out, but I thought that Funchess was blocking decently when he found someone. I think the issue is that he's not finding the right guy, or in some cases a guy at all. I don't know that putting him into a slot solves that issue in any particular way. If you ask him to block on a run he'll either find a guy and handle him or not, and assuming not now your still looking at an unblocked linebacker (probably) or a nickel coming up to make a stop in run D. I guess it's mildly better than him facing a defensive end, but position switch in midseason seems kind of like a recipe to fail.

|12 weeks 2 days ago||When Does All of This Not Matter||
Won't are Epic Recruiting (tm) make this all a non factor at some point. I mean regardless of how the defense schemes to stop us won't are superior athletes at some point just run over the opposition. I can see it now our blockers smash everything the touch 3 yards downfield. Even on the worst play we'll just follow behind some monsterous tackle until the surge can take us no further. We'll complain that we can't run for more than 3 yards on first down, but won't that be nice!
|15 weeks 6 days ago||go home everyone||
You're drunk. Also 12 hours till Michigan kicks off!
|18 weeks 6 days ago||He Fits the Pattern||
And the Pattern is going to work out for us long term.
|19 weeks 18 hours ago||Similar thought crossed my mind||
Hart as the all time leading rusher for UM is a pretty darn favorable comparison. Our best case scenario here isn't one or the other emerging as in the Hart - Martin era it's having Green and Smith as slightly different but interchangable parts like Ronnie Brown and Cadillac Williams. That kind of tandem behind the moster offensive line we should have in place in another year... well let's just hoep for the best for both Green and Smith. I think each can find a place on this squad.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Also the rain||
If you're driving up make sure to bring some ponchos (can be purchased in and around the stadium, but yeah cost will be up there) Afternoon storms are a thing in Michigan that time of year.
Things to do: you can swing by Stucci's for Ice cream for the family.
Or grab some food at Dominick's (try the sangria)
you could hang out in the diag and people watch. I wonder if the "are-you-interested-in-socialism-lady" is still there...
|21 weeks 3 days ago||it's just a provocative headline||
You clicked the link. It did its job. I don't have a lot of concern that hits like JC's will lead to ejections. It was a good football play within the rules and in the spirit of the game. He tackled just how every coach had taught him to since he was... well less massive, but he was probably never small. It was all kinds of terrible looking and I still cringe when the replay comes on, but that's sometimes part of football.
|37 weeks 13 hours ago||well that's just like your oppinion man||
This was hilarious and even though its Peoples Court you have made my day sir. Reputation was explained to me this way when I started practicing: it takes a lifetime to build it and a second to detroy it. Once it's gone it doesn't come back. you are what your reputation says you are. Good Luck.

Seriously? his freaking head got bigger! This is the stage of development where you progress beyond mere human and start looking like those weird pale balloon people from Prometheus.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Punt?||
3rd and 10 from the 19... probably should punt this
|1 year 3 weeks ago||WHY!?||
why do you have to get my hopes up Iowa. Just get crushed so I can watch the game tomorrow in relative peace.

Name him Stevie. In honor of Stevie Brown. It perfect for a shelter dog. Unwanted and unloved until he finds the right home and then all of sudden everything clicks and he's loved and respected.

WHY!!!! he's spinning the ball on his finger fergodsakes JUST TAKE IT!!!
Also call Kenny Loggins FSU because you're in the danger zone

I get all these great brews and many many more. Also as a big fan of New Belgium both as a beer maker and all around decent company I'd encourgage everyone out there to remember 1554. It's one of New Belgiums best and if you see it soon in your store I reccomend you grab a six pack and enjoy.

I was just discussing this with some coworkers/troglodites and we realized there are 2 to the 63 power number of ways to fill out a bracket that's 9 quintillion plus possibilities.
ofcourse picking at random isn't a great strategy but we could then factor in the likelyhood that any particular seed will beat another seed. Someone earlier in the thread had a good breakdown but if you look over time a 1 seed has never lost to a 16 and its exceedingly rare that a 2 seed loses to a 15 though it does happen from time to time. Over the course of a number of these type of calculations. Which I assure you are mind numbing and tedious (what is the likelyhood a 1 seed beats a 14th seed? has it in fact ever happened that a 1 seed has played a 14th seed?) you should get some distribution of all the possible bracket combinations that shakes out into a bell curve if you plot the various combinations over their calculated percentage to win.
Even then a standard deviation from the best probability to win (which I think but have no emerpical evidence to support would be a strait lowest seed advances bracket) would be an astronmical number of selections the curve is likely VERY flat with the number of data points we have in combination with the very low probability that any one bracket is a winner we could have 100 trillion (or more) brackets within in one standard deviation from our mean best chance bracket.
from a purely mathmatical point of view you have a better chance of being struck by lighting while getting eaten by a shark that is currently winning the lottery.
That being said this isn't abotu the perfect bracket so much as it is the bear problem. The bear problem is simple two hikers see a bear one put on the running shoes while the other chortles in a worried sort of way telling his compatriot; "Fool, you can't out run a bear". The running shoe donning hiker replie coldly in a callow and calculating manner that he needn't out run the bear just the other hiker.
/best of luck though

No seriously how the hell is Hoke pulling this off? I'd really like to stare this horse that has been gifted to us in the mouth for a while and see what makes it tick.
I don't recall Hoke burning up the recruiting trail in San Diego. I'm not sure I've even heard a good theory of how to attribute this success. Thoughts? Conjecture? Wild speculation? I'll take it all at this point.

Living in Colorado is awesome! The beer, man its sooo good.
Also did We know about this Denard Injury?
I'm scared to death to make my first post what with my point toal being so low but damn man. This may explain alot.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||so yeah||
wanna know how I know you where in a frat?
|2 years 14 weeks ago||That's how it starts||
Now she's an addict! It just takes one time.... when will parents learn!?
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Having Denard||
Having Denard on your team means your never out of it. This was a crappy game for him overall but seriously he deserves the Heisman. Both the preceding statements are true I defy anyone to argue them.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||One Awesome Request||
We've had emoish video, we've had rap video, there seems to be some odd sort of phobia of Rawk. So I think we all know what soundtrack we need to back this year. That's right dubstep. Wub wub wub wub FTW.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||What are the Odds||
Seriously how unlikley is it that they'll somehow beat us again on in our own stadium! I'm not worried. Not worried at all.
