BiSB you are clearly a fantastic writer and on a par with Brian in the ability to bring chills down my spine with your prose.
"But there is nothing to win tomorrow night, because Michigan has already claimed the high ground. Jordan Morgan gets a day to look around at the shiny new normal he helped to create, and to take his bow from atop the mountain.
"Remember when Mitch McGary went down and everyone panicked, but Michigan still won an outright Big Ten title?"
That is breathtakingly good writing. Thank you for composing this.

I clicked on this thread expecting a torrent of people shitting on the OP for raising an issue long dead and buried. Boy was I happily surprised.
Speculate on boys......
And for everyone asking "do we really want him" the answer is HELL FUCKING YES. 15 minutes after he was here (assuming he actually somehow comes here) nobody - including him - will give two shits how he got here.

Oh god how could i leave that one out. They get increasingly more random (a Jalen Rose appreciation thread....really? Only 20 years since he left school.)

Let me guess what our suggestions might be:
1. More and lounder Rawk Music
2. Better Wifi
3. Creating the "wow" experience (Rocket man, Beyonce halftime shows, illuminated bracelets for night games, etc)
4. Giant noodles
My guess at no point will the discussion turn to the cost of actual attendance. It seems we believe that variable to be a non-issue.

Someday LSA2000 needs to put his analytical powers to work and look at the various board topic themes that seem to dominate discussion these days. It would be interesting to look and see how the board evolves during periods of uncertainty (last days of Rich, Borges and our running game) vs times of joy (last year's basketball tourny rn & 2011 football season) and compare that to the relatively quiet times we're in right now.
Off the top of my head I would say the three topics that seeming are ALWAYS on the board somewhere at all times are the following (in no particular order):
1. PosBang threads
2. Drinking threads
3. Uniform threads
These things seem to consume us and I dont for the life of me know why.

Conterfactuals ARE fun. If you like history and want to spend hours upon hours noodling over questions like "what if Japan and succesfully invaded Hawaii in WWII" or "what if Kennedy had not been shot" or even "what if Picket's Charge" had been successful" read the book "What If".
I do believe the latest edition does consider the "what if Caris got the call" and the implications of that change.

Money quote for me on Borges:
"His system put major stress on the weakest parts of his team. His attempts to problem solve revealed further flaws in his napkin-domination approach to the game. Michigan switched between primary run schemes on a regular basis, moved young linemen to different positions, and integrated new formations and plays every week, rather than building an identity for the team to become comfortable with."
I think he neatly and far more eloquently summed up about 150 or so of my Borges-bitching posts in one paragraph.

The Browns objective is to see how far under the cap we can go. Signing players, especially good players, simply does not fit into that objective.
Them lawyers defending Pilot/Flying J don't come cheap.

I dont know if Dakish can play a lick of basketball or not but giving him scholly was pure genius on Beilein's part. He simultaniously neutured one of our biggest trollers in Dad while providing much needed bench heat and support.
I was SO hoping young Dakish would get a basket last night just to hear's dad's reaction on the air.

Awesome stretch there my friend (and I know from the 1986 thread your not even old enough to remember.....NENA)

I'm 54 and worked in sales & marketing my adult life so I know my way around a bad idea. I've had them - sold them - been told to implement them and gotten yelled at and even fired when I was unable to successfully execute them.
Take it from an expert -this is a bad idea.

Seriously - is there a big Bill Wennington fan base in Canada? If so - does anybody know why?

The dude is brilliant. For whatever revenue he purposively left on the table by excluding OSU students he's now getting buckets of free publicity for his ap nationally. His press release, which under normal terms would get barely noticed, is now getting write-ups and commentary because of the exclusion.
Now THAT's a "Michigan Man." Find a way to profit by sticking it to the Buckeyes......

No Dakish wasnt joking when he said Craft should win B1G Player of the Decade. In fact, I think he's a tremendously deserving candidate given the high level he's been playing at for Ohio State for these past 10 years.

The objective should be to try and win by one hundred milliion-jillion-bazallion points. Here's why:
1. Try and get on the two line for seeding
2. Destroy any tiny, remaining bubble hope Indiana might be clinging to
3. Make Tom Crean cry
|2 days 12 hours ago||Such a fun, fun team to watch||
Such a fun, fun team to watch and unfortunately the 86 team, despite it's #2 seeding - got knocked out by ex-coach Johnny Orr's Iowa State team in the second round. This was the second year in a row Frieder didnt advance to the sweet 16 losing the year prior to the eventual national champs Villanova in the round of 32.
Rumors abound that one of the "issues" this team faced internally was their over-indulgance in a certain popular recreational drug that had recently become quite prevelant in sports nationwide. But man oh man - when this group was on....they were ON!
|3 days 5 hours ago||I dont want to refight my||
I dont want to refight my epic battle with ChiTown Blue on this subject but suffice it to say that as a father of four children I find it extremely hard to understand how anyone could let a grown man rape a child without trying everything in their power to stop it. I'm sure he had his reasons - they just dont make sense to me.
And you are 100% correct that I dont know ANYTHING about the situation other than what McQueary himself said.
|3 days 5 hours ago||If true then I have to||
If true then I have to question even more strongly why he was not doing more to stop the incident than just making loud noises hoping to scare Sandusky off? If he himself went through it - shouldnt he be even more enraged and want to stop the rape?
We may never truly know what happened that night but I seriously do not understand his reactions and lack of actual action that night at all. Banging locker room doors? Hiding? Calling his dad? But not actually stopping Sandusky. Not finding out who the boy was. Not immediately going to the police and filing a report. None of that makes sense to me at all. Never have - never will. And this latest development simply makes his actions seem even more strange to me, not less.
|3 days 5 hours ago||One reason and one reason||
One reason and one reason only. I would be absolutely horrible at dentistry.
My M Denistry roots go even deeper. My sister is a Dental Hygentist, my Grandfather was a Michigan Dentist and two of my Uncles were Michigan Dentists. After my Freshman year I wanted to be a lawyer and my dad pulled me aside and said he couldnt help me much in law but that if I wanted to be a Dentist we had a third generation dental practice in the Pontiac area and he told me how much money I could make and how much time I could take off if I wanted to. This seemed like a much better plan to me than law so I took all "hard science" classes the first semester of my sophmore year. After about 6 weeks I think I had something like a .08 GPA and I realized, sadly, that my skillsets were not suited to your line of work and hand to flip back to being a Poli-Sci major.

Hey OP - my dad and brother were both Michigan Dentists (classes of 1950 & 1973 respectfully) and they both took Wednesday afternoons off.
Are you modern hipster Dentists now taking Tuesday afternoons too?
|3 days 7 hours ago||Oh boy. I coach basketball||
Oh boy. I coach basketball and our practice is tonight from 8-9pm. So I'm going to have to record it and watch when I get home making sure to not turn on the radio or talk to anybody about college hoops while at the gym. I've had to do that for three of the last four games (WIsconsin, MSU & Purdue) so i'm used to not watching it real time.
Pros: Killing commercials and making halftime go away
Cons: Resisting temptation to skip ahead when things go badly in the first 10 minutes of the game and not being able to join in on the board until way later in the night

I would say he'd be a great addition to the Browns as a veteran presence across from Josh Gordon but we've already got Devon Bess under contract for that and he hasnt posted any naked twitter pics of himself getting stoned or gotten arrested in airports in over a month so I think we're good.

Thirded on the ranking scale. I dont remember seeing it before and think it's a fantastic way of quantifying something that is in many ways, more art than science.
FWIW I really like the way you use facts and datapoints to support your predictions on the recruits Brandon instead of feelings and emotions. For me at least it adds a TON more credibility to what you believe will most likely happen.

Any type of surgery with the brain is scary as hell - I dont care how "minor" it seems to the clinicians. I hope he recovers fully and I hope the surgery was successfull in all ways.
As a Michigan grad who had his cancer successfully treated at the Ohio State James Cancer research center can tell you with absolute first-hand experience that some things....no MANY things...are far more important than football. This is definitely one of them.

The "eat my shorts" play afforded me the chance to explain to my wife and her mother what I meant after i screamed "OMG - Robinson just tea-bagged a Gopher",
Apparently neither of them were familiar with that particular term until Saturday night.
