I believe Brian was just taking a stab in the dark at why a guy with arguably the most hype in the offseason wasn't seeing the field at a relatively thin position. I think he backed up a little from that take in last week's BYU column since Marshall was on the field in garbage time and not just straight up benched.

Was just gonna say that I picture Brian and Ace sitting in the studio at peak facepalm when they see that guy's on the line...

The best part is how he linked it on his Twitter: "I spent a few months traveling the country trying to understand Jim Harbaugh. Here's my story...". You spent a few months traveling the country....to read everyone else's pieces on Harbaugh and gather absolutely zero original content. Bravo.

Agree wholeheartedly on the horror angle. The couple's reaction was almost comically bad, especially compared to Rick's reactions/demeanor.
"What the hell is going on?" "I have no idea." Honestly?

I mean, seeing the team and how they've progressed is all well and good, but 99.9% of the reason I go to the spring game is just for another chance to be in the Big House, rain or shine.

Wasn't sure how to do the blockquotes:
"They, like everyone else, figured Duke or Syracuse," Gary now says.
They figured wrong. During the visit, Battle clicked with U-M players from similar backgrounds and saw an offensive system tailor-made for his skill set. Then there was the pitchman.
"Man, him and Beilein, they were like, arm-in-arm," Gary Battle said. "It was obvious that Beilein really liked him as a person."

Appears Poggi is officially taking snaps on offense...not sure if that was ever confirmed. Saw him pulling as a tight end/h-back on a Morris rollout in the middle of the video.

Odd Side's Beautiful Disaster. Pale Ale aged in Red Wine barrels...wine comes through really well. Odd Side is rapidly going up my top breweries in Michigan list. Just pumping out high quality beer after high quality beer.

Am I the only one who selfishly wanted him to being wearing a Michigan hat or some sort of Michigan gear on the sidelines of that Ravens game? RECRUITINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

I think what gets lost in the shuffle is how absolutely horrendous the Media Relations/PR team has been in all of this. There is an entire department whose JOB it is to handle these sort of situations and they have absolutely butchered it. I'm not sure if Brandon just brushes their ideas aside, but having worked in PR, this whole situation is a case study in how to NOT handle crisis communications. Derek Satterfield is the head of Media Relations/SID for the football team and CLEARLY looks in way over his head. They sorely miss Bruce Madej in my opinion.

Wow is Kam Chatman effortlessly smooth. And those three straight 3-pointers at the beginning of the video had my mouth watering.........

Went to Perrin a few months ago for the first time and had 5 beers, and was honestly blown away by every one of them. Like you said, they have a WAYS to go in terms of marketing/distribution, but I'd make a trip there every week to have the Malted Milkball Imperial Porter - it had some of the best chocolate flavor I've ever tasted in a beer, w/o being overwhelming. Love Perrin.

I have no idea who you are, but I'm sure you're a douche. Dickens has an immense amount of experience in football on the NFL and collegiate level and has a huge amount of respect of all of the UM players I've seen him interact with.

More in today's *The More You Know* section: Apparently "giant otters" in South American can grow up to six (!) feet long. I had no idea these even existed.

I feel like for the UTL game in 2011 people were predicting it was like an 80% chance of rain at kickoff and it was absolutely beautiful all afternoon and night.

Did anyone experience scalping in person for the first UTL game? I'm just going to be in Ann Arbor with minimal hopes of actually going to the game, but I'm curious how the scalping market the day of and right up to kickoff was.

Do they actually check if your MCard is expired now? I didn't see them care in the last four years I went to games.

What is meant by Thomas Gordon being a better version of his younger self, but also being in the SAME category? Is one of those supposed to be Cam Gordon?
