I think he did Detroit Vipers games back in the IHL days - anyone else remember when we had an affiliate for a Florida hockey team in Michigan? It was weird. Anyway, aside from ESPN, that's the only other place I can remember his name appearing. It's actually strange to watch a football game and hear Pasch's name for that reason, but perhaps that's my own issue.
|1 hour 20 min ago||My Bad Poetry...||
Although our chance on paper
Is rather slim indeed
Our excitement does not taper
We hope we take the lead
At best, we win and shock them all
And limp on to a crappy bowl
This staff has a nice curtain call
For a season that took its toll
At worst, we lose and stay home
A coach we may replace
For he added to the program's tome
Another "not in the face"

Ohio State RB's WCW Is Michigan Player's Girlfriend
How about we go through our holiday with no Bleacher Report? Thanks.

Some of the particulars in the games to date:
19-41 overall from the floor, good for a 46.3% FG%
8-17 from three point land, good for a 47.1 3FG%
Those combined make for a personal eFG% of 56.1%
His 27 rebounds is second overall on the team, and Walton is also 3rd in assists on the team. His A/T ratio is a solid 3.0, good for second on the team as well. His average contribution of 13.8 points per game is also third most on the team and he is one of only three players with a PPG average over 10.

MGoBlue had a statement with some photos of Brendan Randoplh with the team as well - LINK
After attending a team lifting and conditioning session, Randolph, along with his mother JoAnne and father Chris, was the main attraction at a press conference held at U-M's Crisler Center Media Room. Alongside senior attackman Mike Francia, the team's community service liaison, the lifelong Wolverine fan then signed his letter of intent to become a Wolverine.
Awesome move indeed by the team and by Coach Paul.

Jake Ryan is another player that I will miss a lot - I know we debated his role in the 4-3 Over quite a bit here, but it seems to have panned out in the 3nd half of the season and yet again, Ryan is in the discussion of top collegiate LBs. We will always have, among other Ryan moments, trying to tackle one dude with another dude...
|1 day 1 hour ago||Indeed Yes...||
I spent a few terrible minutes trying to figure out how ESPN reasoned that an epic struggle to sustain drives and play fundamentally sound football at the end of the Ohio / Miami (OH) game could be more entertaining than a hoops game which promised to be (and was) competitive. I just couldn't comprehend a game-winning FG on a Tuesday night couldn't be moved to ESPNNews instead.

For some reason, these take forever and a day to appear correctly in Chrome (the browser I use), so I don't know if there is a known issue or it is something else. As for embedding in the OP, tweets usually work fine in the comments, but sometimes they don't seem to always work in the original post. I wonder if it is a Drupal thing or the version they are using on the site.

My Two Part Formula for Getting Back to Championships
I have to believe the formula for this requires more parts. Also, what about "Profit"? This is important, folks.

|1 day 17 hours ago||Peaking Early...||
Wasn't it English actor Tom Courtenay who once said something like, "I don't want to peak too early, because then you'll never know whether or not you peaked at all?" That might not be the exact quote, but then it has been years since I thought about it. Still, I find it to be true in various aspects of my life. Of course, if you go by the record alone, we did peak too early perhaps in this era of Michigan football.
|1 day 18 hours ago||The Original Pics...||
I tried to open the originals in a new tab and it came back - 414 URI Request Too Large. You may very well have been spot on - too many photos, or they exceed what the server will allow in one post. It's all good, of course - I believe the server is meant to be broken once or twice on the usual Hate Week.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Interesting Numbers...||
Four other public universities currently in Conference USA had higher subsidy rates: Florida International (78 percent), Old Dominion (73 percent), Middle Tennessee (71 percent) and Florida Atlantic (68 percent). Those with lower rates: North Texas (61 percent), Texas-San Antonio (61 percent), Western Kentucky (60 percent), Marshall (52 percent), UTEP (51 percent), Louisiana Tech (50 percent) and Southern Mississippi (43 percent).
That's pretty striking really. Actually, per this summary - HERE - using USA Today's latest numbers (revenue minus expenses and subsidies), there are only 20 programs currently in the black out of the over 200 listed here. Among the profitable Big Ten programs are Michigan, Ohio State, MSU, Indiana and Nebraska.

I might be misremembering something from childhood, but I actually think that IS Bert's look of approval. He did, after all, take time to look up from the book. It could also have been the look that he had just before Ernie mysteriously did not show up for work one morning, of course.

I still am waiting for the day one of Tom Crean's postgame talks breaks down spectacularly, kind of like someone who coached at Indiana some years before Crean did...
|2 days 1 hour ago||Nice To See....||
In Doyle's 24 minutes off the bench:
- 10 points
- 3 rebounds (all of them offensive rebounds)
- 2 out of 4 from the charity stripe
In all, a very nice contribution last night indeed in the numbers as well as presence.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Perfect Excuse...||
I have the perfect excuse as I took Wednesday off anyway, although now with the wind damage all over the place here, I may have to work at least a portion of it. Fortunately, I can arrange it so that this portion does not coincide with basketball. I have not been as fortunate with football this year, missing parts of two games due to my storm assignment.

|2 days 11 hours ago||It's A Start...||
Even though Virginia Tech gave up about 320 yards or so, the 7 sacks, 3 INTs and the 9-29 passing performance from Barrett were, within the context of the game, chuckleworthy. Actually, Ohio State's points / play came out to a paltry (for them) 0.304 points per play. If you can make them less efficient as Virginia Tech did in that game, you have a better shot.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Plan C....||
I think this is more about Plan C being a name that few if anyone would have considered, much like how Hoke did not factor into most popular theories back in January 2011. It is difficult to imagine keeping Hoke on right now, but then the next week has yet to play out, of course. If there isn't an announcement soon after the Ohio State game, I can only imagine some of the threads around here.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Massey Predictions...||
I'll go with Massey here - our chance of winning this game is realistically less than 10% on paper right now. Indeed, their estimate is 8%.
The median score from the simulation is 37-17, which I could believe perhaps, but then if you keep running the simulator, you get 52-17 and 34-9 as well in random runs. I could see these too sadly.

Some great UM news
This actually made it to the board over the weekend, that David Moore had been named a Rhodes Scholar. It is excellent news though.
