"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

|2 days 9 hours ago||A guy I once knew||
He said pretty much the same about Notre Dame: "Everyone I know who went to Notre Dame was a dickhead. In fact, I think they have a checkbox on their application that says, 'I am a dickhead' and if you don't check it, you don't get in."
|5 days 10 hours ago||Glad you said something||
Stuff like, "the women would be worse" (how exactly?) is really not very mature. I hope he grows out of it.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Not only that||
|1 week 1 day ago||They were okay||
I like the traditional home uniform better, but this was okay. The blue pants were kinda cool. I didn't like the number font or the stripes.
|1 week 5 days ago||This||
The same people who were all like, "I hope Michigan keeps Rodriguez for years because he sucks" are now saying, "Boy, Michigan was stupid to fire Rodriguez! I hope they keep Hoke for years to come!"
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Uh...||
Did I miss something here?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Hoke's not going anywhere||
Brandon's behind him. That'll be enough until at least the end of the season.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I'd be surprised||
He's going to get the whole season.
|3 weeks 8 hours ago||Here's what I don't get||
Disclaimer: I don't think Brady Hoke is evil and I'm for giving him a fair chance to explain the situation.
That said, I don't get the "I assume so" answer. It seems to me that that's something he should have known by the time the decision was made to put Morris back on the field. Now let's give Hoke the benefit of the doubt and say that he trusts his staff to make the right decisions on the sideline and doesn't feel the need to ask questions. Couldn't he have confirmed after the game what attention Morris received?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'm sure||
I'm sure this is exactly what Schlissel wants to deal with tomorrow morning.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||He won't address it||
Based on how I've seen him address reaction to things he's done as AD, I don't expect him to say anything. The official line will come from Hoke.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||You may be on to something here||
I don't trust Brandon to fire Hoke any earlier than the end of the season, if at all. Brandon himself looks pretty well entrenched: the Athletic Department has made money and influential donors are behind him (at least at first glance).
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Always liked Kinsler||
Decent bat, can steal bases, and brings much-needed quality fielding to the Tigers.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I looked up the rules||
At least the 2013-14 rules. I doubt it's changed.
On page FR-50: "Article 4. When timeouts are not exhausted, an official shall allow a charged timeout when requested by any player or head coach when the ball is dead."
|3 weeks 1 day ago||If the rumored argument||
If the rumored argument between Nussmeier and Hoke is true, I wonder if the Morris situation had something to do with it.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Along with the ten men on the field||
...when Utah took that punt to the house. These are basic things any competent staff should be able to handle at any level of organized football and certainly at a major college program. There's a pattern here, and it doesn't look good for the staff.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I have zero confidence in Brandon||
Right now, based on what I've seen, I have no confidence that Brandon will fire Hoke before the season ends. I would like to be wrong about this, but my first impression is that Brandon will try to spin this and keep Hoke. Hoke is Brandon's guy, and Brandon will try to prop him up.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Didn't know that||
If true, then wow.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||You may be right||
But with Brandon as the AD, who knows?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'd be surprised if Hoke resigned||
Unless it was something that turned out to be a forced resignation. Hoke won't go unless he's shown the door. This is his dream job - he won't leave it voluntarily if he thinks he has any chance of holding on to it.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||My mom and I went||
to the tasting room on Leelanau Peninsula and bought about 8 bottles between the two of us. I've still got two more that I'm saving for special occasions (particularly the port).
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Just finished off some wine||
I had a couple of small glasses' worth left in a bottle of Leelanau Cellars Baco Noir. I think I'll switch over to the aquavit that a friend brought me back from Sweden.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||All work and no play||
Makes Jack a dull boy.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I don't see that happening.||
At the very least, Hoke will be allowed to finish this season.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Frankly||
I didn't know until recently that Brandon was a Republican. However I may feel about his political sympathies, it's Brandon's acts as AD that inform my opinion about him.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||...made glorious summer by this sun of...||
...is there a York on the team?

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Maize and Blue Deli||
I don't know about greatest experience, but I like their sandwiches. They're on South University just west of Washtenaw.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I'll be watching||
On my computer here in Washington.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I get all that||
And I'm not saying that this is unusual. It just seems a bit odd to me that the institution would go through with the visit if the recruit has already committed to another program and hasn't given any indication that has changed. Unless that's been done privately.
I'm not saying he's wrong to do it.
