I'm on mobile and can't see voting, but I hope this comment has been upvoted a lot. I can't believe the amount of complaining I'm seeing in this thread. Have we forgotten just how bad this basketball program was before Beilein showed up?

What you wrote for the sleep part is almost exactly the same as my 6 week old. We've been really fortunate with his sleep habits as well. One twist is that he will sometimes cluster feed at night, but that just means I give him a bottle after my wife nurses him. But he has consistently slept 6-8 hours a night since a couple weeks old. We have the white noise going, some essential oil diffusing, and have him in a bassinet next to our bed.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Advice||
First off, congrats! This is a big time in your lives. My wife just gave birth to our first about 6 weeks ago, so some things come to mind:
- Take every piece of advice you hear with a grain of salt. Everybody with kids (and somehow some with none) has opinions on how you should do things, and a lot of them feel strongly. I'm finding that being a new parent is all about pragmatism. I've gotten more benefit from spur of the moment Google searches than anything else.
- You can't have enough diapers and wipes... but I would ask people for gift cards to wherever you'll buy diapers/wipes than diapers/wipes themselves. Reason for this is that not all are made equal. Someone gave us a ton of wipes as a gift, which was really generous, but turns out they chafe our little guy's butt a lot more than another brand. So now we have a ton of wipes that we'll probably never use. I've heard other people say similar things about diapers, but we've had good success with multiple different brands of diapers so far.
- No matter what you read or how much advice you get, you're probably not going to be prepared when your baby comes, so be prepared for some intense emotional moments early on. Case in point: I expected our baby to cry a lot, and I expected to be tired, but early on, I had some real struggles with feeling that he was crying because I was doing a terrible job at changing him, etc. Luckily, you'll learn on the job pretty quickly and gain confidence.
- Every baby is different. This goes back to the advice thing, but people will tell you what worked for their baby. Give their advice a shot if you want, but if it doesn't work for you, that doesn't mean you suck or that they were totally wrong.

This was my take on Shane's redshirt as well. And while, as

Where is the assumption coming from that O'Korn will be the starting QB next year, especially now that Morris has explicitly said he's coming back? At first, I thought the talk was based on the assumption that Morris would transfer out; now that he's apparently not, isn't it a bit premature to write O'Korn in as the next QB?

I love Harbaugh's straightforwardness: "Then you will have it."
This should be made into a meme as the go-to response whenever someone wants something:

I don't get his comment about Bush and Walker:
I'm guessing it's just hyperbole, but given the meaning of the idiom, how can a bridge be more than burnt (ie, a relationship damaged beyond repair)?

How do you know we didn't survive? It's possible that many of us did not, in fact, survive and we are now existing in a parallel universe. Maybe that's why we haven't heard from Brian. Maybe he was one of the survivors, and he just can't hear us. Maybe he's been trying to reach us.

Methinks they should have done a little more research...
Hey, it's the the thought that counts, right?
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Isaac's problem||
I don't think Isaac's burst was ever the problem. He couldn't take care of the football. I don't think he's gotten more than a couple snaps since the game where he fumbled 2 or 3 times (can't remember which game exactly... maybe Maryland?).

|12 weeks 2 days ago||I don't disagree with||
I don't disagree with anything you've said, except that's not exactly what I was talking about. The scenario I'm talking about isn't so much when a cutback lane is opened up, but more when the LOS becomes a giant mass of man that the RB can't run through, but he keeps his feet and just runs around the pile. And it wasn't just Howard who has done that, but it's happened in just about every game so far this year.
As others have said, it's not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things, since this has been an elite run defense despite that happening.
EDIT: For a point of reference, this is the type of run play I'm talking about. You can see that the play is designed for the RB to go up the middle, there's nothing there, he keeps his feet, bounces it outside and picks up a sizable gain.
FWIW, this is how Brian recapped the play in UFR:
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks for the explanation.||
Thanks for the explanation. On the DB play, how do you teach that technique to avoid PI? Because won't you get called for that if the receiver goes up for the catch, but you get in the way without making a play on the ball? In other words, you see the receiver's eyes get big, etc, but then what? If you can't see the ball, you can't make a play on it. I mean, obviously Lewis and others haven't been getting called for PI, so they're doing something right, but are they getting consistently lucky, or actually executing on a specific cue? Does that make sense?

I have a friend who's wondering what movie their costumes are referencing. I'm a really busy person so I don't have time to respond. Can someone explain the reference? You know, for my friend.

On an unrelated note, how do you guys like your new Nexuses (Nexi?)? I had the Galaxy Nexus, then a Nexus 5, but then I jumped ship for the LG G4. The 6P is an intriguing device to me, so I'm curious as to your impressions so far.

Has anyone seen a reverse angle of Lewis' INT? I wasn't able to watch the second half live, and all the highlights are the primary angle where you can't really see how Lewis got the ball out of the receiver's hands.

RB at 1:02 mark showed a serious lack of vision on his run, reminiscent of De'Veon Smith. He should have bounced it outside, where he could have picked up a sizable gain; instead he cut inside into the pile of linemen, for a minimal gain.
At a minimum, he should be benched for that. Cutting him from the team would not be out of the question. Needs moar Wheatley.
