there would have to be some to wash away

|2 hours 20 min ago||I'm a longtime fan,||
but I've never felt embarrassment about a loss on the field. I've been disappointed, unhappy, but not embarrassed.
What I've found most embarrassing in order:
the Ed Martin scandal, particularly the access he was given to the players
the infighting after the RR hire
the Ellerbe era, not so much the records as how he ran the program
|17 hours 18 min ago||NFL teams disclose injuries for one reason.||
They have a rule forcing them to. Pro leagues also have disabled lists and the possibility of filling roster spots for injured players. While some coaches are more fortchoming than others, no one is disclosing everything. You're comparing apples to oranges while throwing in grutuitous comments about a smug attitude that I don't think you could back up.
What was your point about bringing up Denard's injury in 2011? That seems like a perfect example of when you wouldn't want the opponent to know about an injury.

but Kauffman is less likely.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Because||
we don't play a tough schedule.
|3 days 20 hours ago||You should give up on this Illinois argument.||
They did not beat NW, they lost by 3. They also lost by 17 to Indiana. Their only conference win was 20-16 over a truly terrible Purdue squad. They lost four games by 20 points or more plus one by 17. We only lost one game by more than 4 points. As bad as our season was, the gulf between the teams was vast.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Yes, but that's far more true||
when comparing players with zero starts than with 20 starts.
|4 days 5 hours ago||+1 for your last sentence alone,||
priceless and apropos.

|4 days 7 hours ago||The 1987 Rose Bowl vs ASU drew a 17.7.||
I would be surprised if an earlier Rose Bowl didn't do even better.

I'd guess the 1992 NCAA final vs Duke, fab five's freshman year.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Who were the tallest players||
at their respective positions at Michigan?
|4 days 20 hours ago||Rutgers looks like a winner for you||
last week, Nice job and I like your Minnesota pick.
|4 days 21 hours ago||LOL||
If that was one of your positive comments, you must be a joy to be around.

Mone is afraid of Hoke at first, probably because he's tough on the players he coaches. Now he looks at Hoke as a father figure after realizing that he cares about his players. This is a very familiar story in college sports. Nothing about it seems even remotely worth criticism. I don't get it.
|5 days 22 hours ago||Hoke's injury statement.||
This is the statement that had Brian basically calling Hoke an asshole for showing his contempt for the press? I think it's time to take a step back around here. Some of the editorial criticism has gone overboard. Maybe he shouldn't have eaten that lemon after all.
|6 days 42 min ago||It looks like we may be moving away from scheduling||
any cupcakes. Whether that holds may hinge on how the playoff committee weighs SOS.
|6 days 51 min ago||Isaac is effectively a 2014 recruit now.||
That should actually work out well. Imo, the best way to attract high end RBs is to have an effective running game.
|6 days 21 hours ago||"by and large"||
Sorry, just have to be a grammar nazi to the staff.
|1 week 20 hours ago||I much prefer Hoke's approach to Izzo's.||
It seemed like injuries were his favorite topic last season.
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't think there's any surprise value||
in that play. Is the defense going to play it any differently than if Kerridge was there?
We used to run it with Will Campbell too, probably some others. It's easy to remember Will Carr because he got a carry and it didn't end well.
|1 week 1 day ago||The stranger part to me||
is that the police waited that long to arrest him.
|1 week 2 days ago||Strange things can happen with paperwork.||
Remember Artis Chambers? We were at risk of forfeiting the Penn State game in 2007.
|1 week 2 days ago||When the most stinging criticism||
is a complete misunderstanding of what actually happened, I think this becomes a crappy emo article. I usually like Ace's work, by this reminds me of why I stay off the board after a loss.
|1 week 5 days ago||Considering that he can't buy||
that kind of publicity, he should be ecstatic.
|1 week 5 days ago||That makes sense, but||
Hoke said Glasgow is taking snaps at RG and C. Maybe that's subterfuge, not out of the question.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I agree.||
I don't tknow that he's a good fit at PSU either.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Add one more||
and they could have tag teams.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Contrast this to the Jerian Grant suspension.||
He played in their BB game on December 21 and was dismissed from school the next day. His case sounded very similar, an academic matter involving a poor decision. Perhaps the difference was that he simply admitted responsibility.
There is plenty to dislike about Notre Dame, but I'll give them credit for caring about their athletes getting an education.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yes, that's a one off game,||
was announced quite awhile ago.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I think someone got confused about BYU.||
UW announced their series with us and BYU at the same time.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Just a little nitpick,||
they've missed 3 weeks of practice.
