|6 weeks 17 hours ago||No Way!||
I don't think that was clearly the strategy at all. On the replay they show from roughly Watson's position, it looks more like the Alabama cornerbacks bump wasn't allowing the receiver to get to his position to set the pick. So, he just dove/fell forward to make hiimself as big as possible to try and get a pick.
It was clear on the PI that the Alabama corner grabbed to avoid the touchdown, but on the final play it didn't look like Alabama was grabbing on purpose or the slot guy would have been grabbed, too.

38-13 Michigan I win

I've watched zero seconds. On the other hand, I've watched hundreds of innings.
|28 weeks 17 hours ago||Not really, based on your discussion points||
If you are worrying about wasted money that could be better used to better society or other people instead of upping my sneaker game, then the same argument could be used for time. Why are you wasting your time entertaining yourself on a sports blog when it could be use to helping other people or bettering the situation?
OTOH, you are spending your time on the sports blog trying to talk us into spending our money better, so that could be construed as charitable use of your time.
|28 weeks 17 hours ago||Technology isn't quite there yet||
I'm sure it's being worked on, but it isn't quite there yet. I'm assuming cameras won't work becuase you can't always see the ball.
You would either need something buried in the goal line or on each sideline. If on each sideline, you could be 80 feet away from what you are trying to measure to the mm.
The real issue is where does the sensor go. If it is suspended in the middle of the ball, you would then have to know the exact ball orientation to know if it crossed the goal-line depending on if the ball is crossing side first or tip first.
tldr: One day we will be there, but you are stuck looking at cameras until technology catches up.
|32 weeks 4 days ago||Walking||
Walking is overrated. I've found a couple of ways around it. It just sits at my desk and pokemon are randomly appearing. So far, I also just carry it in my pocket when walking places. The phone vibrates when a pokemon gets to close and I capture it. Don't need to walk around looking at the screen.

It's not a neg bang for books. It's a neg bang for your assertion that reading a book on a kindle is worse than reading a physical printed book? Have you ever tried one? It has it's flaws but may be superior in every way except feel and smell.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||First 2 Rounds includes round 1||
There is a lot of double counting in this chart. First two rounds includes round 1 picks, so UM has had 9 2nd round picks, not 33. Then, you can take into account that there used to be more rounds and that is where the total comes from.

For those who don't want to click through, rosebud was the sled but also what Orson Welles called his lover's lady parts.

So AJ Dillon is Tyrone Wheatley, but slow!

Yeah, my fandom started in the early to mid-90's. So those teams with Morrison, Botteril, Madden, Muckalt, Hilton, etc. have my go-to stats. It all gets blended together on who the lines were, though.

The hockey link at the bottom isn't the correct one. Goes to some more news about how awesome spring break practice was
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Saw that too||
I noticed that, too. Then I thought that a last-minute trip to Orlando on New Year's is probably expensive. Then football tickets, steak dinners, sight-seeing, etc. Sounds all expensive

What sort of orangements have they made for the rest of the season?
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Seconded||
I also don't know why they don't make the headgear mandatory for all youth. Just like adding cages and mouth guards in other sports. Fewer concussions in every sport the better
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Amani Toomer is Real||
I don't care what the historical database says, Amani Toomer did too play WR in the 90s!
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Holding on Goal Line Plays||
I just noticed on the first/last GIF that Maurice Hurst is getting the crap held out of him. Next time I become a football coach, I'm going to mention to refs to make sure and watch for holding on goal line/short yardage plays and see if I can't get myself a nice 10 yard cushion.

This was what I was thinking. I can be on board with just about all of the current models at the Detroit 3, but the old school Comanche was the way to go.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Club or Varsity?||
I can say that I had no idea that we were talking club and not NCAA. I appreciated the clarification of it being club and was confused at the lack of Ivies in the results box. So, I don't think (as was stated) that ak47 was trying to reduce their accomplishments, merely trying to educate and clarify to us other peons.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||NBA||
Those NBA contracts at the bottom of the list are brutal. Kobe is semi-understandable, but Amar'e and Joe Johnson is absolutely ridculous.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Salsa||
You may be able to get something semi-similar. At least in Michigan (and I assume nation-wide), Garden Fresh makes the Margaritaville salsas. So, if your local establisment carries Maragaritaville, you might get a pseudo-fix

|2 years 16 weeks ago||No good way to make it sound crazy, but...||
I've been racking my brain trying to figure out how to make the story sound crazy, but I think it was awesome. Sadly, it doesn't really involve drinking or passing or any other fun circumstance. It also probably can't ever be repeated, so that is cool.
Way back in the day, I was working for the athletic department doing maintenance and custodial stuff at Crisler and the Stadium. I worked my way up the peon rungs and was given a master key (that unlocked everything) to make it easier for me to do my job and to get started in the morning/lock up at night.
Anyway, I arranged for my housemates and I to challenge a group of friends to a basketball game. We went to Crisler at 11:00 one night, shut the curtains to the tunnel/concourse and turned on the lights. We preceded to play first to 100 with breaks at every first to multiple of 25. Couple of hours later, and my squad had lost by two due to a couple of missed layups by yours truly. there is photographic evidence, that I won't share as to not incriminate the others.

7 months older than your twins and he is going to be a junior.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Broadcast Rights||
Since the NCAA isn't selling broadcast rights (only access to the building), then I guess they won't mind when my friends and I shoot the game on our phones (multiple angles, replay from about every seat in the house) and put them out there for people to see.

Ziggy Ansah kills people?
I know LaMarr Woodley does, but since he doesn't have a current employer...

My name on this here blog is a nod to my two favorite Michigan basketball players of my "adult" years of watching basketball. "Adult" signifying 15 and older so that I was old enough to actually figure out what was going on.
Jimmy King (#24) - My favorite of the 5 due to his athleticism. Think GRIII.
Maceo Baston - Coincided with my time in Ann Arbor. Had "length" before it was a buzzword. I loved watching him swoop over people for dunks/blocks/boards
