Never gets old.
I'm sure we'll get a new one by November.
What am I saying? We'll probably get a new one by the end of Spring Practice.

"All Friday PosBangs shall start no earlier than 12:00 AM Friday, Ann Arbor Standard Time"
So it is written, so it shall be done.

I do the same thing. Only my first day of spring is the Tuesday day after the NCAA tournament.
Summer starts the day after Memorial Day. Fall starts after Labor Day. Winter starts after the New Years Day Bowl games. That's my personal calendar.

Neither can Urban.

I love the attention to detail, the emphasis on efficiency. Always trying to get even 1% better, even 1 mph faster.
It manifests intself in little things like making sure every practice minute and square foot of space gets used efficiently.
That's what all those miscellaneous hires are all about, from the extra film analysts to the Team Mom. Make the best use of your limited time and resources.

I love his comment about how nobody is born being an O lineman, that little kids don't go play in the yard and pretend to be OL, they pretend to be QBs, WRs, and RBs.
OL is a learned skill through technique and repetition.

I can't see any white and gold at all. Not even close.
Can you 'shop it for those of us who can't see white and gold?

Happy Friday! I will now start drinking and get up from bed.

Whoo Hoo, it's Friday!!
I'm dancin' like Kate Hansen.
|11 hours 50 min ago||The most important thing to||
The most important thing to me is to be able to see Michgian first, and B1G games that impact us second.
ABC/ESPN has a lot of outlets that let that happen . . . ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Classic, ESPN News, and ESPN360 on line.
I never miss any games now. I would not want to lose that if the Big Ten moves to Fox or NBC. Where would they put all the games?
|11 hours 54 min ago||I prefer a network that is||
I prefer a network that is not a flagship NFL network like Fox and NBC are.
I hate the way both Fox and NBC cover college football . . . as if they are just killing time until the "real" games play on Sunday.
NBC wastes a large chunk of the ND halftimes pimping upcoming NFL games instead of telling us what is going on in the CFB world, and Fox insists on using retread NFL announcers, graphics, even the theme music . . . as if it wasn't worth it to come up with anything just for the CFB opening act.
If you are going to cover CFB, then cover it, and forget about everything else while you are doing it.
Love them or hate them, ESPN covers CFB with their undivided attention . . . from Game Day to noon games, to 3:30 games, to night games, to West Coast night games, to CFB Final, and then CFB-heavy Sports Center highlights after that. They treat it like it matters.

And that's the only reason. I could not stand him before that. I thought he was just a loud mouth entertainer.
Now of course, he's a witty, insightful analyst.

Gus is great for basketball. But he's a little awkward for football, as if he's not really sure where to channel his excitement . . . "IT'S SECOND AND SEVEN!!"

They would look like we forgot to tuck the shirt in.
We'd probably get T'd up if Teddy Valentine is reffing.

That would be stupid, having a non-football sport try to look like the football team. We would never do that.
. . . oh, wait.
|22 hours 5 min ago||I am excited for the return||
I am excited for the return of the Big Bad Block M.
I've been advocating for this for years. It belongs to Michigan, not just the Fab Five, and it's time to bring it back.
I'm willing to invest in the stupid two-tone shorts to get the big Block M sneaking back into the picture.
|22 hours 26 min ago||The main reason that Bo did||
The main reason that Bo did not win NC's is that Bo was not allowed to play for NCs.
Based on the polling system at the time, his teams were locked out of NC consideration before the game was even played. There was not a single bowl game played during Bo's tenure where Michigan knew that if it won the game, it would be the NC. Not once.
Under today's system, his '71, '73, '76, '80, '85', '86, '88' '89 teams, at minimum, would all have had a shot at a National Championship.
It's not unreasonable to assume that he could have won at least one of those years in an environment where he knew he wass playing for the NC, and he was not always having to do it in the other team's backyard in the Rose Bowl.

Nobody outside of Michigan cares about how "shady" Ohio State is.
Who really looks better that has been successful? Alabama? Auburn? FSU?

They finished in the AP top 5 for like a decade straight. Every single year. Amazing dominance.

it's a tough place to come out of alive.
Every single Ohio State coach since WWII has been fired/forced out. Every single one.
We'll see how Urban fares and if he can break the cycle and go out on his own terms.
|23 hours 51 min ago||Yes, this is what the BYU guy||
Yes, this is what the BYU guy meant be "realignment coming". it's not all of CFB, it's the Big 12. he wants to be in the discussion when it happens.

While were in Harbaugh mode . . . 1986 Notre Dame: (Holtz's first ND game) TD by Notre Dame in the back of the end zone that was called out of bounds. There was no replay, so that was it.
We won 24-23 so that was the difference maker.
