|1 hour 17 min ago||Thanks to other people's poor grammar||
It took me longer than everyone else to notice the play on words.
|1 hour 19 min ago||Since the whole crew is staying home||
I doubt there is anything dirty going on here, but this feels like a huge coincidence.
|5 hours 14 min ago||Without DA, Yale Van Dyne was our #2 WR||
In both the FSU game and UW game, we did not have a competent WR opposite Desmond. So teams could focus on him because our other threats were too slow. I'm not saying we win either game. But I am saying that we probably stick the ball in the end zone or hold onto the ball longer with another All-American out there on the field.
|5 hours 17 min ago||Second offensive play, first pass||
That game was a turnover fest.
|5 hours 22 min ago||Do it for Tripp Welborne||
Do it for Tripp Welborne
|7 hours 20 min ago||He used to come back to our high school||
But it was closed down about 10 years ago. Here's an article about him from a few years ago:
|7 hours 22 min ago||Writer looked at this with 2015 glasses on||
So for him, the hitting outweighs the redemption for so many people in the movie. Plus, it's a movie. Even those based on real life have embellishments.
But he does have a point with the championship game. The racial makeup of the team was a bit "off". Crazy thing is that they beat Oscar Robertson's all-black team in one of the earlier rounds. It seems that would have been a huge part of the movie if they could have used that fact. I guess they needed Oscar's permission to use his name.
|7 hours 42 min ago||Love the D. Alexander shout out||
If he's not hurt in 1991, two things probably happen.
#1 - Desmond does not win the Heisman.
Of all our wide receivers, he had arguably the best pro career.
|7 hours 45 min ago||Rich Rod didn't screw that up||
Name one receiver who earned it while RR was coach? Braylon could whine all he wants, but no one really earned the #1 and the scholarship that went with it until Jeremy Gallon's senior year. And I don't know the stats to know if he earned it going into his senior year.
|7 hours 49 min ago||Reaction if Brady wasn't a favorite son of Michigan||
No, the reaction wouldn't be the same. If it was Peyton, Kirk Cousins or a QB from OSU that didn't suck in the NFL, there would tons of LOLs directed toward the player.
It's cool. Brady is Michigan family, so you stick up for your family, right or wrong. The Patriots OTOH? I'm not from Boston, nor am I a Pats fan, so they can fine them all they want.
|9 hours 30 min ago||What else was Brady going to say?||
TB is likely not going to get the suspension overturned before the season so the only thing he's fighting to save is his reputation. Since he plays for the Patriots, everybody's opinion on him probably won't be swayed one way or the other.
I still love the guy and I don't think he's been honest with the league. He knew what was going on with those footballs. But it's stupid to hammer the guy when other teams add air to balls and doctor balls with stickum and other substances.
|1 day 4 hours ago||That's a big if||
If I'm coming home to that at night, why do I need it on my phone? All my buddies would know my wife is smoking hot and she's got famous being mostly naked. Plus TB needs to be smart enough to know that the NFL would be the least of his worries. Cell phones can be hacked, so any pics/vids of the wife should be kept offline. Don't they make Polaroids still?
|1 day 4 hours ago||Reminds me of the whole Kwame Kilpatrick scandal||
That entire situation was aided by Skytel providing the text messages that he was sending/receiving. There was a lawsuit filed against Skytel, but I'm not sure if it's gone to trial or tossed out. Considering KK is broke, I'm sure he didn't win anything.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Wouldn't mind seeing this||
But only if we have two star quality opponents as well. I think it would be kinda cool even though it would be a guaranteed win.
|1 day 6 hours ago||I've never seen that before||
Are you making an Army SuperGuide also?
|1 day 6 hours ago||Edit to previous post: We do play Wisconsin!||
We play them from 2016-2019. Screw it. We should play Minnesota. The Jug game should be every year.
|1 day 6 hours ago||How about Wisconsin instead?||
That would make for a great non-conference matchup since we can't seem to play them in-conference.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Maybe Upshur will commit to us sooner||
to make sure Nauta doesn't take the available scholarship.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Not to nitpick||
But must they go with Roman warrior helmets? Last time I looked, the Roman empire is extinct.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Better than a MAC school I guess||
And they need an easy opponent after the Arkansas game. But they have to reward the home folks with a good opponent for their third non-conference game.
|1 day 6 hours ago||#21 should have been used for a few more years||
I like the idea of keeping a "retire-worthy" jersey in circulation for 25 years or so and then retire it permanently. You might be able to get a kid interested in the school if they have the option of wearing #2 or #21. I don't know if the appeal is there for any of the other numbers that are being retired.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Try the veal||
|1 day 6 hours ago||No #2||
Do you have to be retired from football to get your number retired here?
|1 day 7 hours ago||It's similar to having a team full of New England RBs/WRs||
You never know who's going to get the ball with them. Someone will usually get you a 15-20 point game but outside of Gronk, you're never sure who that person will be. I'll take that if it turns out to be true because we have so many good options.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Another example||
of athletes and other similar people getting preferential treatment.
Also another example of how we still move the needle and Sparty doesn't. They just don't grab headlines, positive or not, the same way we do.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Our special teams sucked overall||
If his blockers do their job, he could break longer runs. He can't do it on his own and I never heard a whole lot about him missing wedges that the kick team opened for him.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Did he drive a stake in the ground?||
Did he talk smack leading up to games? No. That's way worse than anything he ever did.
I will file him in the same category as damn near every person who played under Brady Hoke: Under utilized potential.
|2 days 12 min ago||Make this a diary post||
Glad I read until the end. The "Bookslut" reference made it all worth it.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Relegation only works in pro sports||
Hard to do that in college when you have to recruit and guys are here such a short while.
