"Rodrick Williams Jr.'s 10-month old, 2-foot-long savannah monitor named "Kill" gets the RB some strange looks when they go for walks together."

- They defended the inbounds play under the basket much better
- JB called time out to stop MSU runs really quickly...much more so, I think, than usual
- Novak and Douglass are taking 3-point shots from a few feet behind the 3-pt line, where they are more likely to be open than if they are right at the line

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.

... thanks for the correction. The real quote was even better.

...I got two from StubHub. Row B, behind the M bench.
It will be a lovely day no matter what.
|48 weeks 1 day 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.
|48 weeks 1 day 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.
|48 weeks 4 days 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?
|49 weeks 2 days 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?
|1 year 33 weeks ago||I agree completely...||
It's time for the coaching staff to prove itself.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Yes, that...||
what bluesalt said
|1 year 43 weeks ago||You folks must be putting your money where your mouth is...||

Does anyone know if it's usual to be moving so much at this time?
|2 years 6 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

My tickets are in 206. The view is fine. Lower bowl is better, of course, but you won't miss anything.

Just to be clear, the interview was done after Thursday's practice, not after today's scrimmage...

...two one-tech DTs. They seem to be so much harder to come by, at least for UM.
|4 years 7 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:
|4 years 27 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.
|4 years 27 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).

...winning two of these:
That should be enough.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||I agree completely...||
A few examples that I noticed:
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Wow....I think that people are underestimating...||
...how much work lies ahead in this offensive transition.
IMO, getting 7 wins would be a significant accomplishment.
This would be a good question to ask again after the spring game, and seeing if it looks like chaos or football.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Yes, but...||
...the athletic department is still fully accountable for its actions to the people of the State of Michigan through the Regents, regardless of the source of their funds. You can bet your last dollar that when David Brandon was a Regent, he would have had no problem demanding an expanation for anything from the AD.
|4 years 32 weeks ago||The only explanation that makes sense to me...||
...is that he is planning to hire his brother (Jon), but can't until the Bears are done with their season.

I couldn't get the FF extension loaded..."download error" from the source site...
|4 years 32 weeks ago||Anything like this for Firefox?||
This looks like a Chrome-specific plug-in...is that right?
Anything equivalent for FF users? Just asking....
