Playoffs!? Are you kidding me? Playoffs!? This is not a playoff team! OL not playoff caliber. QB not playoff caliber. Coaching not playoff caliber. Playoffs!? Are you kidding me!?
With apologies to Jim Mora when he was coaching the Saints. You Tube it. Please.

Should have been credited with a reception and an interception on the same play!

Never, ever, let facts get in the way of a good argument.

A decent left hand hitting outfielder for the Royals had a medical condition (forget name) where he could not control body spasms and things he spewed out orally. Some obscene. In my commuting days, a guy in my car had this problem. Crazy sounds and worse, could not stop,at times from just yelling out the f word and others. Very sad.

Anyone remember Mackey Sasser, a catcher for the Pirates and others. Could not throw the ball back to the pitcher. Pretty important for a catcher.:)

Generally a agree, well said if a bit overwrought. But got to love your sentiments.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Entertainment, not for me||
Not going to weigh in too much on 2008 vs 2013 except to say 2013 was better simply because of less humiliating losses.
Some here find the games entertaining, while I sometimes feel that way (mich 58, minn 0 or mich 59, CMU 9), most games are much more competitive and my "emotional investment" in Michigan precludes me from feeling entertained. A crushing loss, to me, like last year s Ohio game, no matter how exciting, was not entertainment. For me, it was over 3 hours of tension followed by extreme disappointment.
Great wins. Case in point UTL I was also hours of anxiety and tension followed by a couple of hours of....a great adrenalin high.
Just the way I roll for all teams I root ( strongly ) for Including M Basketball. KU win was
Wish I could just find each game entertaining, win or lose. Those that do are fortunate indeed. And maybe better adjusted. And I should be old enough to know better. Put it this way, I remember M football before Bo.

Good line Brian about Hill and Oden. Wasn t Shane Battier an earlier member of that club while at Duke.

I may be guilty of parsing words here but he did say, "nowhere near" we need to be. Meaning not close. Dunno. May not find out this week but we should in South Bend.

Good one Don. But I ll go with what JFK said in his 1961 inaugural speech about offensive lines: "ask not what your defense will do for you, ask what you will do for your defense."
|4 weeks 5 days ago||IF..||
And if the offense was just a little bit worse in some games, like ND, IU, or Gibbons was a second late getting on the field against NW, that's 3 losses. I understand the comment about if the defense had been just a little bit better against Neb, Iowa, Ohio, PSU but Bill Parcells was right, "you are what you record says you are". And whoever said, " the the Queen had balls she d be King."
Will the D be a shut down unit this year? Hope so but, one last cliche ( hey, it fits) :), "that's why they play the game".

|7 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan Stadium self tour||
My son is a UM grad (93) as is my daughter (96). Back then, especially late summer before the season when we were on campus, the gates were open and we had access to the field. As did many others. We threw a football around, imagined we were Desmond Howard and had a great time. One time, the M locker room was open and we checked that out as we ran down the tunnel.
Hard to believed things were so different as little as 20 years ago.

Great weekend. Went with my son in law and grandson a few years back and saw a great game. Nothern Illinois 42 Army 40. Jordan Lynch must have ran and passed for almost 500 yards. And Army s triple option must have gained nearly 400. I ll check later. Army had a 2 point conversion to tie late but missed. That was the year NIU was undefeated and went to the Orange Bowl, I think, and lost.
Campus is gorgeous, corps of cadets great. Take the 2 hour tour if you can. A must see for any college football fan within 100 or so miles.

Repeat after me. Only a coach. Only a coach. Yes, a damn successful one bot..only....
|8 weeks 6 days ago||2 questions||
1. What makes the Wayne State game an "exhibition" assuming that is what the "ex" denotes.
2. Didn t NJIT used to be called Stevens Tech? Around these parts (NY/NJ) the official name was Stevens -Hoboken Institute of Technology which many smart Akeem's simply shortened to SHIT. Really. Could account for the name change.

Great writer, love his Grantland stuff. Knows his basketball, just the right mix of irreverence, analytical and historical references. Just not made for TV. Dry and boring. Flat. Anyone agree.

Ghost you are 110 percent right. Love the kid, always have, but seriously doubt his longevity in the league for the reasons you cite. Hope I m wrong. No breakout this year, maybe Canada beckons.

And in the 13 seasons preceding your sports consciousness, we were 10-2-1 vs Ohio. Including upsets of a highly ranked buckeye team in 1993 and 1996.

I remember how I was so sure that Rice s last shot in regulation was going in to win at the buzzer.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Woodson Rose Bowl INT||
Did not seal NC. Refs determined clock had run out on WSU before another play could be run. They had the ball at approximately midfield so a Hail Mary from Leaf was possible. Woodson did have an INT in the end zone I believe earlier in the game.
