|10 weeks 1 day ago||I think what many of believe||
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?
|44 weeks 3 days ago||NW looked decent||
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.

Wow, that was incoherent.

What about "matriculating down the field," Mr Webster?

Come on, people. Sharknado is so ten days ago.

I don't get it: isn't that a picture of Mitch?

Yeah, but can someone explain why Webb thinks McGary literally looks like a million dollars?

He actually has a job now, which those who read the whole article know.

I don't see how this can inspire strong feelings either way.

If you can't laugh a bit at sports-induced sadness (including your own), then you might be taking it all too seriously.

So you're saying that Zeller and Oladipo have ruined their program?
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Well said.||

Yeah, it's a real shame we won't get to read what surely would have been a thoughtful, well-researched look into the season, definitely not a slapdash, opportunisitic hack-job.

I think he's referring to dirty recruiting by UM at the beginning of his tenure, the tail end of the Ed Martin era - there may have been some overlap.

If you're going to keep the French thing going, "Jacques, the otter of elan" would have been nice.
