Agree. I might have maize and blue goggles by declaring Gallon a 3rd rounder, but I think he'll get drafted in the lower half. I think.

Detroit Lions, let me introduce you to Jeremy Gallon in round 3.
|4 hours 20 sec ago||I swear I wrote this ^^||
Like thousands of multi-decade Lions fans, you share my EXACT feelings. We could be a 10 win team next year, or a 10 loss team next year. But we're stuck in perpetual parity purgatory, unless we can strike gold with a few lower round draft picks and/or lower tier free agents that suddenly blossom. Glimmers of hope were the OL outperforming expectations last year, including contributions from undrafted FA's (Waddle). But until Stafford matures (mechanics and such) AND the DL dominates on a consistent basis, we're nothing more than a mediocre team in a league filled with mediocre teams.
That said, I wish we would've gone through our horrible, horrible stage (0-16) in the past 1-2 years to reap the benefits of the newish rookie salary structure.
Sammy Watkins? That selection might marginally tingle my football loins. Just like Andre Ware marginally tickled my football loins in the early '90s. Please, someone, tickle my football loins.

I thought it was standard practice to misspell Loonardi's name as much as humanly possible, since, I guess, a lot of people apparently don't like Lonbardi's prognostications. I, myself, don't follow Ludnardie very much, so I'm not really familiar with his schtick.

Meh. I'll wait for the AP poll to be released before I panic.

There are at least 3 on this board living in/near Madison, so take that into consideration when you hope for Milwaukee. We will be loud. And we can flip Bo Ryan the bird on the road to Milwaukee.

Tom is indeed unhinged and quits after this year to his hobby farm north of Iron Mountain. The MSU AD glances at Lincoln, NE and thinks "that Miles guy did a bang-up job this year". They hire Miles, and now we're faced with the connundrum of having to hate the one opposing B1G coach that we kinda like and respect.

I hate it when shallow analyses are thrown around like "UM was blessed with such great talent...any bozo could've coached that team to a B1G title." Sure, GRIII was a potential 1st rounder, but he was not a blue-chip 5 star recruit when he committed to UM. Neither was Burke. Neither was Hardaway. So we lost 2 1st rounders who were ho-hum 3-star type recruits. That is great player development and great coaching.
Miles has done a great job with Nebraska this year, but - maize and blue goggles be damned - JB deserves it for wreaking havoc on a tough basketball conference and winning outright by 3 games.
|12 hours 13 min ago||Omaha?||
Lincoln! Lincoln > Omaha (at least in my opinion for college town atmosphere). But your point is still valid. Nebraska's hoops history has been less-than-stellar, so attracting top talent to Lincoln might be difficult, except for "WOW! TV's IN THE BATHROOMS!"
|12 hours 20 min ago||Sprinkles of 1-3-1||
I really think sprinkling in the 1-3-1 has spurred us to a handful of wins. This zone has been active and disruptive in recent weeks. I think it was the 2nd half key in IU win.

Not even losing a precious hour to the daylight savings deities can suppress my positivity. Bang on, I say!
Happiest of Fridays to all.

Word to MGoBrewMom. It was a wild ride based on a false premise that Chris Webber was playing by the rules. I love Juwan. I appreciate Jalen's passion for UM. Jimmy and Ray were solid 4 year players and a huge part of that crazy experience. I personally cheered those years in Crisler as a student. But I just can't conjure up good vibes of that era due to the dismal death spiral it caused to our hoops program, and this ultimately colors my final opionion of that era.

The 90-91 season was long and tough. The TRUE Michigan student hoops fans endured that year in good spirits. I had a blast cheering for a frontcourt that consisted of:
Rich McIver (sweet hairdo)
Sam Mitchell (smooth, but inconsistent)
McIver and Mitchell would soon transfer. Sigh. That was a young and innocent team in the young and innocent times before the Fab 5 craziness.

I've heard it, and it never ceases to give me chills. The early 90's Wings-Leafs playoff series iced it for me...I love O' Canada.

Yup. Student section should be all over this one. Learn the words, students. Sing your hearts out in honour of Canada's native son. I think it would be the perfect antidote to the USA chants he's endured.

I'll cheer heartily during the BTT, but I'm not passionate about it. It would really only matter to me if (a) we were a true bubble team and needed to make a BTT run to squeak in the NCAA's or (b) if we lost a #1 seed due to a 1st round flop in the BTT.
Tirico and Dakich hit on this point during yesterday's telecast (BTT vs. other conference tourneys). I did a grad school stint at an ACC school, and I loved the pageantry of the ACC tourney. It was magical. But I don't feel that way yet about the BTT and wonder if I ever will. I take great satisfaction in a grind-it-out B1G regular season championship.
|5 days 12 hours ago||O Canada?||
Has the Maize Rage serenaded him with "O Canada" yet? That would be pretty sweet to do against IU, especially if it is his last Crisler game. Brings tears to my eyes, that national anthem.

This is so sweet.

|1 week 3 days ago||UVU||
Since I hadn't heard of UVU before this brawl, 1000 apologies to you for not knowing about your home turf better. I did some quick research...over 30000 students enrolled?! Much bigger than I thought. Have they been D1 sports for a long time?! How long in the WAC?
Additional research has since revealed to me that Noelle Pikus-Pace was a track and field star for UVU.
|1 week 3 days ago||This information also refutes||
This information also refutes my earlier theory that the ball-thrower was hurling it at someone who probably deserved to get a ball thrown at their private parts. The internet has thoroughly enlightened me about UVU and the ball throwing victim in this case.
|1 week 3 days ago||Good catch||
I did see "Wolverines" plastered on a banner in that clip. Bastards. There hasn't been a wolverine spotted in Utah Valley in over 300 years!
|1 week 3 days ago||Utah Valley?||
The main thing I learned from this link was that Utah Valley even existed. I seriously had no idea that they were a D1 team.
Other than that, this was a stupid situation all around. Sounds like NMSU's coach will take disciplinary action, at least from the quotes I saw. As much I would love to hurl the ball at many annoying players' private parts who probably deserve it, restraint must rule.
