Everybody on this board is 16?

BIG realignment, Jim Delaney, and douchenozzle Brandon. Especially the latter.
|9 hours 29 min ago||Saturday||
I'm with you MGrowOld. And I'm older then you. Yup. Even with your typos, you are right. Maybe too many of your young dissenters don't have a firm grasp on sports history. Plenty of time to talk after the game.
Still a game played by young, very young adults. Sometimes, anything can happen and it does.
Stay calm, at least until 3:30 pm Saturday.

I posted I would take wins over both Ohio and Sparty by one point each right now. I was had some downvotes. Never mind that an undefeated regular season gets us in the playoffs. Hey, team with several future Hall of Famers in 2007 lost to Appy State. Stranger things have happened. Didn't Stanford under Harbaugh defeat a heavily favored USC team under Carroll. Let's crow after Saturday is all I'm saying.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Sorry...||
Way too high. Anybody else here that would take a one point win over both right now?
|2 days 11 hours ago||Am I the only one?||
Who is slightly concerned about Saturday? This Is Staee's championship game. There have been much bigger upsets.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Agree||
I would be shocked if Evans plays next week. Trying to get Staee to prepare that is all.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Good for the brain?||
Huh? "Sometimes" that's good for the brain? And other times? Any neurologists here? And in honor of Malcom X? No politics here really but Malcom was assassinated in 1965. Wonder what Jim's reference point is?

The Big champ, even with a loss, is likely playoff bound. What bothers me is that Wiscy couldn't pull off last weeks nailbiter. Meaning IFIF we ran the table until Cbus, we clinch the Big East and face the West champ. Now, even if we are undefeated until Ohio, a loss and we are out. Of course, should still be Rose Bowl bound in that case. Still concerned about Staee believe ot or not. And Iowa.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Good..||
Glad I was wrong. I hope. We will see next week.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Evans..||
Too bad, sure looks like a concussion. I'll settle if he' s back in three weeks for Iowa. Looked like targeting to me but since the refs don't understand the rule, how can we?
|3 days 7 hours ago||316-70||
You're kidding right? Just want to make sure?
|3 days 7 hours ago||Darboh?||
Did he limp off? Millen and this other clown don't watch.
|3 days 11 hours ago||1992||
I remember it well. Icy, rainy, horrible day. Pete Elezovic made a 39 yard fg at the gun to salvage the tie. 3 ties that year. Clinched a Rose Bowl bid. I was ecstatic,

You haven't reached "Effin asshole" category yet? You must be a saint.

38-36 in AA. Oy.
|1 week 13 hours ago||Interesting but..||
Since I shut the TV off in shock as soon as the horror play ended with no flags and have never watched a replay, this is the first I've heard of this. It's only recently that I even read a few lines about this play. Still blaming Baxter, special teams "genius" for not being in full blocked punt protection formation. Didn't we have one or two gunners on that play even though Sparty had no one deep?
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Dropped but..||
From about age 8 until maybe the early 80's, I "lived and died with the Yankees." My first sports love. Would not read the newspaper after a loss even regular season and couldn't eat after a particularly tough post season loss. I.e. Game 7, 1960 World Series. Now, still root for them but rarely watch all 9 innings (or more).
Then some short lived extreme fandom fo the Jets especially during their Super Bowl and Bill Parcells years, some Rangers angst (hockey) and of course Michigan football and basketball starting in 1989 (my sons freshman year).
Currently, almost all Michigan. Not such a good thing. Nervous on every play, except the last game:), blood pressure rising to maybe dangerous levels, really, not good. All for watching basically big "kids" play a game. Wish I could enjoy he action "but"..
Oh, last October 17 was of course the worst. Well at least since the horror, the loss to Colorado in '94, the loss to Ohio in 2006 and...you get the idea. Michigan State 28-27 in 1990 when Howard dropped the 2 pointer from Grbac when tripped by Eddie Brown.
After standing in front of my TV all game and sweating out a win, I was first in shock and then ...pissed, aggravated, almost irrational. Not healthy. Had to cancel dinner plans with friends that night. Trouble sleeping until Monday, eating normally that Monday.
Hope I change.:) I am 68 and should worry about other things. Which I do just not on football Saturdays.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Rutgers fans, not students?||
No. Just no.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Loved every play..||
Loved the game. Personality disorder? No stress, cackling with glee non stop. Hoping we would get the ball back and make it 85.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Good one..||
Build his empire on buyout clauses. Great line.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Speight...||
Let's be honest, so far, opponents, weather conditions, he's been merely adequate. To win the biggest games, QB's need to step up. Lots of poor throws over 6 games. Still good nough to win most games, but not all.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||The nap, the nap, the nap...||
Love it. Anyone know where I can get an adult size? Large. Really.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Woody Hayes..||
Slugged a kid on the sidelines. Charley Baumann , Clemson. Urban Meyer enabled/coddled Aaron Hernandez at Florida. Who is the classless weakling? Oh, for the record, the great Tom Osborne kissed Lawrence Phillips ass at Nebraska. Don't know Phillips? Google him.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||In the words of the immortal.||
Herm Edwards. (Right?)
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Woody 1968||
I am having a bad day. I was 20 years old then and now...I'm not. I will be more careful in the future.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Couldn't go for three..||
Bursley, you are right. I knew that, meant to type that but ...?? Senior moment. Good catch. Neg away boys.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Woody Hayes vs. Michigan 1968||
The year before Bo arrived, we trailed 48-14 late in Columbus. Ohio scores, Hayes goes for two. Makes it. 50-14 final. When Woody was asked why, he said "because I could". Get over it Rutgers. Get better players, coach me up, or go back to FCS level ball.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||It's all on Speight...||
Usually, QB play is the difference in big games, college or pro. JT is a game changer at his best. At his best, Speight is a competent game manager. Yesterday really proved nothing, an overmatched, unathletic team that gave up early. If it was a fight, it would have been stopped.
I remember one impressive throw to Darboh, many others too high or low. Sorry, still not impressed with Speight. Unless our defense can really shut Ohio down (low teens), we need Speight to come up big.
Count me as "concerned."

Chop House is better but too pretentious for me. First time I was there with my wife (I had to be at least 50), waiter said to us "ever eat a good steak before"? What? Hey, I love UM, Ann Arbor but c'mon man.
