|2 weeks 5 days ago||I agree with just about all||
I agree with just about all of it in principle. But it's not written in a very professional way. Far too many exclamation points, just to start (like a 12-year-old's diary). If the authors want it to be taken seriously they should use a more formal style, whch could still convey the severity of the issue.

"There's still a chance to save Hoke!"

Forcing the defender to push through you, and thus slowing him, certainly constitutes at least "a modicum of resistance."

I think what many of believe is that by appealing to the die-hard, tradition-obsessed, quasi-purist crowd, the AD might build the "brand" in such a way as to make the experience more appealling to all. You can't compete with TV by being "better" in terms of the visuals and the convenience. You have to be different from TV, the NFL, etc. You have to cultivate what makes (or once made, if only in our imaginations) Michigan special.
It's sad that the sooges in charge of the AD are so tone-deaf that they can't about the "brand" except in narrow, short-sighted way.

Okak, that could be so. Is that common knowledge? And is that what the author of the post meant? In the context of this article, it seems like it should have some bearing on Fisher's coaching ability. Still not clear if it's supposed to be a credit or detriment to him.

"In the aftermath Fisher decided to take the team to Europe, an experience that was lost on his wards."
I found this a bit puzzling. Does it mean that it was a bad decision to take the trip? That the players didn't appreciate or profit from it? If so, why is that true? I recall Jalen speaking about the trip in the Fab Five documentary, but, if memory serves, he was positive about it, culture-shock notwithstanding.

Isn't a recruit meeting Charles Woodson some kind of NCAA violation?

I agree. I think the rule could make an impact because it would give defenses confidence that they could substitute as long as they did it in fewer than 10 secs. The fear of getting burned by a quick snap is lessened, if not removed. That certainty would, I assume, make it easier to practice for facing the hurry-up as well.

Once the spacecraft had landed, wouldn't it have been clear that a person could walk safely?

Maybe not likely, but it would be fun to have Orgeron in the B1G.

Wrong. If your team is bad it can't possibly get better for at least two decades. At least that's what I've been hearing lately.

"the platonic ideal of your linebackers not understanding"
I don't think there can be a Platonic ideal (or any ideal) of a mistake or ignorance --that's deviation from the ideal.

Wow, an excellent suggestion. Does every bit of content need its own comment thread?

The heat? You've obviously not spent any time in the Bay Area.
I saw the game and wasn't terribly impressed with NW, though they do have some speedy guys. Game could have gone to Cal quite easily.

And delicious cake is delicious. I didn't like the phrasing - just one man's opinion. Carry on.

"Life decays us all"
I don't think "decay" is a transitive verb. Otherwise, pretty good.
