So in a few years, all of our games will be at noon? Old-timers & WD will love it.

Just last night, on the label of the skim milk that my wife drinks*, I covered "FAT FREE" w/ a hand-made, cut out "Candy-Ass" label. My wife howled "Vandalism!" this morning as she poured it into her cereal.
Nary a day goes by that a Jim Harbaugh joke/gag/prank isn't pulled in our house.
*I haven't been able to talk her out of it.

he was so fast that his time just zoomed by :(
He was a joy to watch, on and off the field.

They need someone to be successful at player development. I don't know much about their new coach.

It was posted in jest, but seeing Harbaugh spring it on a team would be fun to watch

I never saw anything official as to his return or departure from football due to his injury. But most of the projections I saw near the end of the year were omitting him. I would love to see him on the field with the athleticism he displayed before his injury. Any reliable word on his progress?

Maybe these new jumpman jerseys have a velcro strap
Or maybe there's a special fabric that illuminates
|3 days 5 hours ago||I keep telling myself it's only one game||
but damn, this feels like a must-win to get off to a good start in the second half of the B1G.
This is one of four tough games at home (Indiana, MSU, Purdue, & Iowa). There are three tough away games (at OSU, Maryland, and Wiscy), leaving only two "should-wins" @Minny and home vs NW.
Indiana might be the easiest of the big four home games. If we win tonight, we've got a good shot to take 3 (or even all 4 of them). If we lose, then finishing significantly above .500 in the B1G looks harder and harder.

I've got North by Northwest & Dr. Ehrlich's Magic Bullet queued up for recording. I also really enjoyed Sergeant York but omitted it wondering if my love of old army movies biased my opinion. (And I just finished watching Friendly Persuasion :)
Thanks for the tip on the others! I'll check them out!

I'm in the middle of watching it.

Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.

We get most of the tough games at home (Indiana, MSU, Purdue, & Iowa) with away games at OSU, Maryland, and Wiscy. (The two other "should-wins" are @Minny and home vs NW.) If we can win 3 of 4 of the home toughies and 1 of 3 of the away toughies, we could finish 13-5. (Obviously, one of the better scenarios.)
BTW, Mich has moved up in the Coaches Poll to #29 & tied for 30th in the AP, matching their approximate KenPom position.
