Kentucky moved to California?

When you're 18 years old, "when you were growing up" is like, 5...maybe 10 years prior. That length of time feels like a century when you're that young. Now I feel like I've had farts go on longer than 5 years.

We are one Willie Henry away from having a full-blown Scrooge McDuck vault of defensive lineman.

Don't saddle me with that kind of guilt. It's just an expression.

That should boost the ol' tourney resume.

This seems like a pretty even matchup, both in terms of overall strength of the teams and style of play. I approve.

When it was announced that Greg Mattison was retained by Harbaugh, I had assumed that it was mostly because he still had one year remaining on his contract, and that there was a high likelihood that he would retire at the end of this season. Am I correct here, or does he still have more time on the contract?

I am rounding out the tail end of a night shift on the west coast and will be staying up to watch the game after work. The Game requires certain sacrifices. Now get your asses out of bed, east coasters, it's fucking game day.

You may be thinking of Mike Vrabel.

Still worth it.

Yours was even animated, too. I am defeated.

Especially early in the year, and when Michigan is good enough to have high level bowl or championship aspirations. I sulked haaaaard after this year's MSU game.

That was an awesome win, and the Reggie/Drummond combo is going to be lethal all year. Marcus Morris and KCP have been pleasnt surprises, too. The bench is brutally thin with the loss of Meeks and Jennings, though, and they'll need someone to step up and provide useful minutes once in a while. I wouldn't be surprised if the Pistons make a move later in the year if it looks like Jennings' recovery is moving more slowly than anticipated. Hell, they might make a move anyway considering that there really isn't a viable 5 on the bench that can spell Drummond. 38.4 minutes per game will catch up to the big fella by the end of the year.

I won't lie to you all, when Speight went in, and stayed in, after Rudock's injury, I thought we were done. I am kind of ashamed, actually. Glad he proved me wrong, even though I probably didn't deserve it. Most impressive to me was his pocket awareness. I don't know if I ever saw his head pivot more than 10 degrees to either side while he was in the pocket, but nonetheless he seemed like he had that inate sense of when things were closing in around him. Not bad, kid.

Never thought you'd stoop to creating an alternate username.

I really believe that Lewis is the best player on defense, based on what we've seen so far. Peppers' athleticism does allow the defense to do some extra things, but he has shown weaknesses in certain areas. Lewis has been lights out from start to finish.

Man. What does that guy have to do to get people outside of Ann Arbor to notice him? He is the best player on the defense and the only person anyone talks about is Peppers, who, for all of his Peppers-ness, still has a ways to go before being the definitive GOAT. Maybe Peppers is just an elaborate decoy to hide Lewis from opponents and NFL scouts?

No question. At no point did I ever question whether or not Mike Hart was, in fact, still in the same dimension.

If someone made that exact shirt in maize and blue, I'd buy it.

I was just there a couple months ago. Cool town loaded with microbreweries, but I don't recall a designated M bar. In my experience though, if you wear Michigan gear you're bound to find other alums in the same predicament no matter where you are.

If the guy wants to play, and is healthy enough to play, I don't think there is a huge downside to this other than the fact that it would almost certainly lead to a transfer by someone else on the roster. O'Korn looks like he could be the real deal, but I don't think he would have quite the upside of a healthy Taysom Hill, and if it makes the team better I say do it.
But, this has about a .02% chance of happening for the reasons listed above, so probably not worth the discussion at this point.
