The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

If a butterfly disruptively farts in China, the 9 day forecast could be rainy and upper 50's.

Yup. You're right. My bad. Word nuance matters, and I did twist the wording. Please accept a +1 from me as my humble apology. I guess I'm on edge this morning.

I think this is an important point. Utah has been a top-notch pass rush team in recent years. I think our OL performed above expectations from a pass proctection perspective against a very good defensive front 7. Running game? Maybe not so much. But they exceeded my expectations against the pass rush.

Rudock was hurried on the Darboh long overthrow. That was one instance where the pass rush definitely affected his accuracy, so I don't blame Rudock for that one (maybe a blown assignment?). Overall, though, the OL seemed much more consistent on pass protection. It was nice to see a QB with enough time to sit in the pocket and go through progressions on a handful of passing plays.

Yeah, not so sure about Utah being a team that we "could easily beat". Seriously? They're a good team playing at home. Their All-American PK missed two FGs. We were a 5.5 point underdog. Even if Rudock connects on one long TD pass, this was a game that would not have been easy to win. The game may have been winnable, but even my homer glasses will not allow me to proclaim that this was a team we could easily beat.

1989 Notre Dame. Rocket Ismail. I saw the kickoff coverage part like the Red Sea - twice - from my freshman seats in the corner endzone.. I amost vomited before the game due to nerves. That was as huge matchup. And a shitty outcome.

I've used StubHub only a few times, and I always wondered about how a scenario like this actually played out. Thx for sharing.

The dramatic ending of this game prompted me to jump up with arms extended in unadultered joy, only to have my hand get mauled by a low ceiling fan the was lazily spinning in the living room. No harm was done, but Dreisbach to Hayes memories always make my right hand ache a bit.

|1 week 2 days ago||There's still a genuine core||
There's still a genuine core to this team, especially offensively. Big questions:
Is the Nick Castellanos of the past few weeks the real Nick Castellanos. If so, that's a huge burden lifted. He's been tearing the ball to all fields recently.
Is Gose the answer in CF? If he can hit .275, that's sufficient combined with his glove and speed. But I just haven't seen enough consistency to believe this is possible.
Do they have a realistic shot of resigning Cespedes? This is a longshot, I believe. But he was a pleasure to watch this year. I would love to see him in LF again.
Pitching is a complete crapshoot. JV, Sanchez, and Norris could be a decent top 3, but this is not like the golden days of 4 solid starters - 5 if Porcello was in a groove. Another proven arm would be a bonus off-season signing, but they're not cheap. It would be great if Norris and another young arm could step up.

I'm going to name my first batch of homebrew "Peaty Poo". You'll get royalties for generating this idea. I promise, mate. G'day.
|1 week 4 days ago||QB's?||
Mallett was 5* future NFL pick. Sure, he was a headcase. But he would've been a sure-fire 2-3 year starter if not for the Rich Rod transition. I'll take a QB string of Brady, Henson, (Gutierrez), Navarre, Henne, Mallett any day (not counting Dreisbach and Griese since Lloyd "inherited" them as HC).

That dude's a human vaccum around the rim. He also seems to move real well. It will be exciting to see a true rim protector in the lineup.

It would be criminal to see any Original Six uni plastered with ads. Absolutely criminal. The thought of a garish orange "Hot and Ready" emblazoned on the Wings jersey makes me ill.
