Add a Sparty loss to Penn St. to make the jump over them to be more legit.

I was in the former East Germany not long ago. The Burger King was the only restaurant open on Sunday. I didn't notice anything labeled by weight ("Quarter Pounder" or "Eighth Kilo"). There was a Curry Burger, though.

This surprised me from Beilein:
Starting to get excited about what's coming in basketball season. I know that Wagner probably won't get many minutes this year (and may RS), but the future is looking good.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||<Sigh>||
I've been saying this for 30 years. Once they had the greatest running back in the NFL. Now they have the greatest WR. They are perpetually "a few pieces away".
There was that one playoff win against the Cowboys . . . in the last 50 years.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Harbaugh tenure||
On the question of how long Harbaugh will stay - I think that he is classy enough, and he cares about Michigan enough, that he won't leave until he knows that the program is stable, and will be in good hands. Plus, he is likely to develop enough of a coaching tree that we will have a long list of top-notch talent to consider.

|6 weeks 8 hours ago||Explain if not apologize||
I don't know if the BIG needs to apologize, but they do need to explain, so that the coaches (and the athletes) know what to do to avoid getting tossed from a game. What could Bolden have done to have prevented getting the penalty? If there is something, that needs to be explained so that other athletes can be taught. If there is nothing that he could have done, that also needs to be explained, so that the players are not panicing trying to figure out what to do when they are getting thrown onto a quarterback.
And, by the way, if there is nothing that he could have done, then there should be an apology. It changes nothing, but when you screw up royally, it is good form to own up to it.

|1 year 35 weeks ago||One more point in Michigan's favor||
Not only does Beilein have a week to prepare - Cuonzo Martin doesn't have tournament experience. I don't think that he's a bad coach - played under Gene Keady and has a tough defense, low tournover, fundamentals first mentality. But experience coaching in the big dance counts for something.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||One correction||
The football team won the national championship the year after Manning left. They should've played for the national championship in 2001. They have been dismal of late, but this overstates it.
On the tournament game - we should win, but I have watched UT basketball this year, and they are streaky. If Barton starts hitting threes, and Maymon get OR's and putbacks (Stokes is certain to get 12/10), we could be in trouble.
I still expect that we will win this game, but I also expect it to be a battle.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||They talked about Bruce Pearl||
I live in Knoxville. After 2011, all of the talk was about the team being demoralized because of the Bruce Pearl recruiting violations. Then they mourned his firing because he is well loved here.
When Pearl took the Auburn job, the local sports talk shows could barely function.

I'm a UM alum (x3) living in Knoxville. I didn't see the live broadcast, but glad to see it replayed on the Web. I doubt the reporter has ever admitted his Michigan fan-dom on air . . . there is a strong resentment down here (related in part to sour grapes over the Woodson heisman over Peyton Manning in 1997). Terry Fair - former UT player and Detroit Lion - was a radio host on local sports-talk here (until he took a staff position on the UT football team). He would occasionally talk about being a Lion's fan (as they gave him his first shot in the NFL), but was a UM hater.

I doubt that I'm the only one eager to click the link to see the gifs. Disappointed in the final result of the championship game, but not dissapointed in the 2012-2013 version of UM b-ball at all, and glad to see some highlights. Thanks, Ace!

So, what were the odds in Las Vegas that the first Tiger's stolen base would come from Peralta?
|2 years 34 weeks ago||3-0 after two innings||
Tigers have 3 runs in two innings. One would think that this would be enough for Verlander (if we ignore the possible closer meltdown . . .)
|2 years 34 weeks ago||There it goes||
There goes Verlander's perfect game (Cabrera 1st inning error). But we still have a possible no-hitter . . .
|2 years 34 weeks ago||First inning of the season . . .||
One inning in, the vaunted offensive juggernaut is living up to the hype. At this rate, they will score 2916 runs this season.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Desmond vs. Rudy||
Desmond either needs to go Rudy on us (capture the meme from ND)
or he has to go "Desmond" and end with the heisman pose.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Not sure . . .||
I'm not sure whether Coke can do it over the long run. He seems like another Todd Jones - will give up some hits and walk and teeter on the edge every time he goes up. I would love to see a closer that just shuts things down with overpowering stuff. But, who knows, maybe we'll have a New Coke.

Dotel has been a closer (22 saves in 2010). He's a little long in the tooth now, but knows the closer mentality - may at least be able to keep the seat warm until Rondon is ready. Albuquerque was 1 for 3 in save opportunities this spring with a 4.5 ERA (18 strikeouts but 7 walks in 12 innings). Villarreal, on the other hand, was 2 for 2, with a 2.79 ERA, 14 strikeouts and 3 walks in 12 innings. Given how much Leland likes relievers to get the ball over the plate and challenge hitters, it wouldn't surprise me to see Villarreal either take the closer position or the setup. Benoit is a candidate as well, although he wasn't put in save situations at all in spring training (1.80 ERA). Ditto for Coke (4.09 ERA).
