Guess I'll have to take the subway home really late tomorrow night. The sacrifices we have to make for a winning team.
|22 hours 50 min ago||No "no" about it.||
He used up his Michigan eligibility. He had to go somewhere.

Excellent invention of a way to make sense of all this.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Bills Players Being Picked up by Snowmobiles||
(Collage tweeted out by wife of Bills TE Scott Chandler picked up by CBSSports.com.)
|4 days 17 hours ago||Best player I've ever worn.||
Only player I've ever worn.
(My favorite T-shirt.).

David Harris is still starting MLB for the Jets (and one of their few consistent bright spots). He's on the injury report (shoulder), but is listed as having had 100% participation in practice.
Tyrone Wheatley (Sr.) is RB coach for the Bills. So do we want Harris to stop Wheatley's guys? Or Wheatley's guys to show him up? Tricky decision.
|5 days 2 hours ago||the treatment Schwartz gets||
Wheatley (Sr.) will be there to protect him.
|5 days 3 hours ago||And they're throwing in two free tix||
Or at least that's what they said on the early NYC news this morning. (Offer obviously directed at Bills fans. Don't know if the Jets fans are driving up for the game, much less shoveling.)

Congratulations to the Prof.
Seeing that he's also won a MacArthur "Genius" award, I guess it's not OT to mention that this year's MacArthur grantees include two more Michigan-connected folk (out of a 2014 class of 21): UM English professor and poet Khaled Mattawa, and Alum Tara Zahra (Ph.D. '05), now teaching history at U. of Chicago.
Article in M Alumni Magazine for more info about their work and relationship with Michigan.

You can't purchase through them anymore, but if you've already seen empties in those sections available through Barclays, chances are you'll be in good company. See you there. (Or at least your T-shirt.)
|6 days 1 hour ago||Going to second night||
Got tix through Alumni offer that's now extinct, but thought I'd try to get a cheapie ticket for Monday night as well depending on my schedule.
Thought the cheapest tix at the box office were much cheaper than $50. Maybe they're sold out. Ah, well. Was hoping to be part of the cheering section when Austin Hatch hits the Brooklyn floor for the first time.

|1 week 3 days ago||I don't even have FIOS||
I've got cheapie Verizon on cheapie computer. Not for TV at all. I've got (gasp) HD antenna!
Strange that sometimes it's an advantage.
|1 week 3 days ago||Maybe it's free for me because I don't have cable||
and my internet is via Verizon (my phone company). I can't watch the ESPN varieties that are on cable, but ESPN3 is free.
Of course, Michigan's games are usually on the ones you have to pay for.
|1 week 3 days ago||Me either||
But today I did have to try twice to get to the ESPN3 streaming menu. When going to www.espn3.com it takes you to Espn.go.com, and when I clicked for MBBall I got a gametracker with audio. But the second time I got ESPN3's menu.
Don't know if it'll work directly, but here's the URL showing on the streaming window:

I don't even pay for cable, but I can watch this one on line.

|1 week 5 days ago||And now that I read the linked article||
I realize I actually watched her first run! (That mustache mug threw me.)
I remembered wondering how she got away to Iowa. Best of luck on that belated honeymoon, Sarah!
|1 week 5 days ago||So will you wear your mustache mug on screen||
so we know it's really you?
[Unfortunately, I'll miss it because I'm going to a concert tonight and didn't know to set the recorder. But it's a concert to benefit Multiple Myeloma research and therefore not even OT on this here board! Good excuse, right?]
Backward best of luck, and forward congrats for finally being able to talk about it.
|1 week 6 days ago||Denard Article Public Service Announcement||
The linked article is apparently from Bleacher Report. However, having been linked and hence vetted by Brian, it is permissible to click. And worth it. Some things even obsessive readers of Denard Articles Everywhere may not know.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||Even more moving when showing both shots||
Didn't realize he was so close on the missed shot, but the quiet of the crowd waiting for it, the mixed sound of disappointment at the miss and cheers for the fact that he was even there to be so close, and then the actual make. Dramatic writing students, take note.
And to think it's actually real.
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||Sounds like you don't know his story||
He's coming back from much more than an injury. There have been many postings you can find by clicking the tag link above, but here's an MLive story Brian linked to back in August.
He was recruited here in the normal course of being a talented young basketball player from Indiana, and committed. Then things happened. Worth a read to learn more.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I thought Defensive Back||
and was very confused.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Maybe he's just sad that Denard's over there||
and not here when we could use him?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||But there were so many before he got to Elliott who?||
I was thinking Bump Elliott, Jumbo Elliott... Elliott Mealer's shown he can be a bit outspoken, but that's on Twitter...
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Who himself was a 5-star when coming out of high school||
And the Mannings thought he was pretty terrific at their camp a couple years later. Too mysteriously sad for words.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||"I made a joke about these..."||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Didn't he become his seat-mate||
once he'd been sent to the Siberia section of the press box? Bet they actually had a lot to "share" about how they got there and why. Misery makes strange bunkmates, or whatever the phrase is.
