Phil Jackson did OK ....

My bad ... I thought that he was referring to Michigan, not MSU.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||No, that changed as of this||
No, that changed as of this morning.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I always wish for M to win ...||
... but by this time of year, you are what you are, and this is not an NCAA tourney caliber team.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||I was at the game last night||
I was at the game last night (with a few dozen others, or so)
Mo was impressive. If he's going to become a focal point for the offense, though, his FT percentage will need to get better.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||And there's this quote:||
"I don’t think they are one of the two best teams in the Big Ten East, but I won’t be surprised in the least if they go 1-1 against Michigan State and Ohio State."
|1 year 30 weeks ago||20-13 Michigan||

We are listing one of our guest rooms on AirBNB:
We are in the NE part of Ann Arbor (not walking distance to the stadium) - but we'll include a ride to and from the stadium area, as well as breakfast.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||I'm sure that you're right...||
... thanks for the correction. The real quote was even better.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||The most Harbaugh moment...||
... was, when Huge asked about his recent trip to the Normandy beaches, he talked about "the pride of winning back-to-back World Wars".
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Before the presser was over...||
...I got two from StubHub. Row B, behind the M bench.
It will be a lovely day no matter what.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||I don't think that Morris is going to be the savior...||
... but at least he is a legitimate threat to throw the ball. Gardner just looked so awkward throwing last week, and as many have noted, was short a lot. To quote UFR: "this is a broken QB"
True that Morris' results last week were also poor, but given the situation, it's hard to say with conviction that he'll be that way in the first quarter of a 0-0 game.
Most important of all: we just need a damn break!!! And seven is such a lucky number.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Despite the fact...||
... that two years ago I swore that I would not spend another dime on UM athletics as long as Dave Brandon is around, I decided that the team needs me, so I bought a couple of tickets on StubHub.
Section 39, way up at nosebleed level.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||The most logical explanation, to me...||
The most logical explanation, to me, is that they have had too many other things to fix, in a limited amount of available time, and that the punt formation did not make it high enough on the priority list to get addressed.
What puzzles me is, if that were true, why not just say it?
|2 years 31 weeks ago||This was actually meant to be a positive comment ...||
If I'm more concerned about kicking than I am about the offensive line, or Devin Gardner, or the DBs, then we must be in decent shape, right?
|3 years 15 weeks ago||I agree completely...||
It's time for the coaching staff to prove itself.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Yes, that...||
what bluesalt said
|3 years 25 weeks ago||You folks must be putting your money where your mouth is...||
...now it's back to -4.5
Does anyone know if it's usual to be moving so much at this time?
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Sorry to disagree about ribs...||
...but Satchel's on Washtenaw (next to Whole Foods) is hands-down the best BBQ in town.
Zingerman's is the obvious choice for a unique A2 food experience
Nice sit-down meal: Zola (fries with house-made ketchup are special)
Best burger (IMO): Casey's, by the train station
Well, Blimpy is special, too....but a different species of burger
|4 years 34 weeks ago||I bought a SlingBox for this purpose...||
...maybe not the right solution for everyone, but works well for me.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||What is it about wearing red...||
...that turns people into morons?
|5 years 21 weeks ago||They're fine||
My tickets are in 206. The view is fine. Lower bowl is better, of course, but you won't miss anything.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Replacing "You Suck" makes sense....||
...but "Hoke Smash" is just plain douchey
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Post practice, not post scrimmage...||
Just to be clear, the interview was done after Thursday's practice, not after today's scrimmage...
|5 years 42 weeks ago||I would rather take...||
...two one-tech DTs. They seem to be so much harder to come by, at least for UM.
|5 years 42 weeks ago||The rating was said to||
The rating was said to reflect the entire staff, not just the head coach. Here was what they said about UM:
"Michigan: (HC-Brady Hoke 47-50, .484 in eight years, OC-Al Borges, DC-Greg Mattison) - Do not be fooled by the sub-.500 career record. Hoke led Ball State to a 12-victory season in 2008 while the nine victories at San Diego State last year were three more than any other Aztec season in the decade. Throw in a couple of veteran coordinators, including former Irish defensive leader Mattison, and the Wolverines should have the stability that was missing throughout the brief Rich Rodriguez era."
This description sounds more positive than the numerical rating, Shrug.

There are clearly needs at all of the positions mentioned, but at this point my order of concerns is:
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Interestingly, Kenpom predicts...||
...that we have the same chance of beating Wisconsin at home as we do beating Minnesota on the road (29%, link). To me, the latter feels more likely, but I'll be there to watch us try for the former.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||"Word With Friends"||
This is a game that I discovered last week and am totally hooked. You play it like Scrabble, asynchronously, either with people whom you know or (more likely) with complete strangers. Players make moves as time permits, so a game could take hours or even days. This could get boring if you only played one game at a time, but you are allowed to play up to 20 simultaneous games, so you almost always have active games that are waiting for yor next move.
The interface is very professional and it has been pretty stable so far.
WWF (got to love that acronym) is available for iPad/iPhone and I think it has just been released for Android. AFAIK, there is not a web browser version. I am not sure if this is an intentional omission or if they just haven't gotten there yet (more likely the latter, IMO).
This has replaced Crosswords as main treadmill activity (at least, for now).
