I forgot about him. He was actually the QB we fared better against, too.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Yes, that seems likely.||
I can see Urban Meyer orchestrating a 50-person bar fight and planting cocaine in a police car just to avoid telling a kid his scholarship is going to someone else. Cause he's not just a sleazy football coach, he's also a Batman villain.

once you ignore the nostalgic comments about getting laid in the 70s.

Guess we can toss out that trick play.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||I did not "equate all things Rodriguez as bad."||
I pointed out that his offenses were frequently stopped by capable defenses. The 2010 offense was exciting to watch when it put up 60+ points on Illinois and Bowling Green. But it was hardly fun when the same offense managed seven points against Ohio State. That's so few points, journalists have to use words instead of numerals to express that quantity.
But yes, let's no longer talk about a former Michigan football coach on a Michigan sports blog. Let's water down the content here until it's just block Ms and muppets.
Also, "There is too many idiots" is an amusing statement.

until we played a real defense, at which point, we'd have been stopped. Like we were. Regularly.

They'll continue using alternate uniforms for the high-profile games because fans are more likely to buy a commemorative jersey if it's a significant game they want to remember. They'll sell far more jerseys featured in the UTL night game against Notre Dame than jerseys worn in a 12pm matchup against Bowling Green.

Passive would be something like: "I am being driven crazy by it."
"Crazy it is driving me" is not passive, just kind of Yoda.

never reserach companies before you go into job interviews. You'll want potential employers to see how interested you are in their businesses by directing all your questions to them. Questions like "So what does FedEx do, exactly?"

your first start-up was a sausage venture in Chicago. What's your second?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I second that||
I was an English and film double major, and I took that astronomy course as half of my math requirement for LSA (also fall of freshman year). Very cool subject matter if you're astronomy and physics, and I liked Mateo a lot. He wore shorts every day - like deep into winter.
Congrats and enjoy your first year!
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Sure, but Hoke could spin that||
into bulletin-board material. Just like the 7.5 over-under, and all the chatter about demands for success this season. And because players probably read about their team more than enthusiastic fans do -- you don't televise your college announcement and then suddenly forget that media exist -- they all see the world looking down on them. A 0-0 record come August is a big opportunity to show what they can do.
I think Hoke has the wherewithal to put a chip on their shoulders and motivate them for week one and beyond.

Articulate and funny. Thanks, BiSB!

I agree with the intelligence and arrogance, but we need to beat some rivals first. We aren't yet in a position to tell Sparty or Ohio to tread lightly.

This episode was not so convincing in the major changes. For one, the final partners' meeting was way too easy. Felt rushed. Sterling just said a number, and everyone had dollar signs in their eyes. I can buy Joan selling out if we knew a money issue was important to her motivation, but they tried to retroactively seed money issues by mentioning how Don blew up a previous deal. Meh, one of the most interseting things happening lately was Joan's hostility toward Don, but there was no time to resolve that, so we'll just give her lots of $$. I think she'd have more to say about being your own boss and having ownership of her own future instead of just being wealthy. This would also be a good time for her to criticize the way the men run things because they just keep buying and selling the company into new forms so they can push each other around without really creating anything.
And then Ted is suddenly okay with moving back to New York since he can "just work" and not deal with the businness nonsense. The whole point of moving to LA was to get away from Peggy, so I can't say I buy his decision either if he's just going right back into that mess.
All in all, I thought Peggy's storyline was really the only thing that worked in this episode, though Don's call to Megan did feel very real, especially when she paused to drink silently.
In retrospect, I think the half-season would have been well served by embracing the perspectives of Cutler and Lou Avery more and keeping the focus on their schemes to muscle Don out of the agency - that was cool but underutilized.

|13 weeks 12 hours ago||His Huffington Post piece||
was all about how the bonds of teammates are more important than any championship or individual recognition. Not really a message that's consistent with a guy who's looking to transfer in a few weeks.
It does sound, to me, like this was encouraged from the outside.
That, or he's maneuvering to become the Frank Underwood of college athletics.

Good memory for that one. Here's the clip:

They were "bold" predictions, which are less likely to come to fruition than just "predictions." Still, you'd think he'd get least one right by chance.

in the final two minutes. Just FYI in case you're watching Nebraska and want to switch over for the end.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Well the problem with space||
is that it's not very cinematic if represented accurately. If you have a silent vacuum with only a single, dimly lit asteroid drifting by, no one will watch the program. So these shows tend to rely on rumbling sounds and "Star Wars" asteroid fields for the aesthetics.
Given the goals of Cosmos, that's a concession that it should be engaging, too. At least they split the difference by emphasizing the distance between comets in the Oort Cloud (Earth-Saturn distance between closest neighbors).

You want "a coach who smells like dignity and integrity."
