You're completely ignorant about what goes on inside a diocese and among the laity. That's unfortunate.

I think "WHAT THE FUCK MEYER" is a banner-worthy quote.
Just one question: Where/who is "MICHIGNA?"

The 3rd quarter wasn't great for Michigan. Many missed opportunities. I'm not sure what it was, but we definitely weren't hitting on all cylinders.
There are a few things to clean up before next week. We allowed way too many TFLs; gave up a TO; had some dropped passes; the Pepcat formation wasn't terribly effective; and even the jet sweep was sniffed out pretty well.
I'm interested in seeing how the offensive UFR grades out. I think it will reveal a number of opportunities for improvement.

MSU would have to be playing above their heads; and Michigan would have to be making a number of errors for that to happen. It's not impossible; unlikely, but not impossible. That's why I wouldn't be surprised if we were down by, say, 10 points early.
|9 hours 4 min ago||Dantonio will have them ready||
He has tried to "have them ready" for five weeks - each more desperate than the last. If they haven't figured out a winning formula yet, it's hard to imagine that they will this time.
I don't expect an epic beat down by the Wolverines; but it's going to be a fairly easy win.
|9 hours 16 min ago||This is really the big difference for me||
MSU will come out and play with a lot of emotion early. It wouldn't surprise me if they took a 7-10 point lead in the first half.
But, their strength and conditioning, not to mention poise, has been appalling late in games. They can't finish games.

Or, you know, the bedroom.

Sparty's slide this year makes no sense if we accept as holy writ that Mark Dantonio is an exceptional coach. He is no doubt a GOOD coach; but MSU's slide makes perfect sense in light of a few key facts:
- As Michigan's football fortunes go, so go MSU's, but in the opposite trajectory
MSU will be a tough opponent in most years, so long as Dantonio is in charge. But, they are unlikely to remain a juggernaut with Michigan's ascendancy.

The Catholic Church, most of it's leaders and followers, anyway, were very introspective after the scandal broke. Was there some damage control in play? Sure, but there was a great deal of sincerity in the heartbreak for the actual victims: those who suffered the abuse. Followers of the Catholic Church demanded answers of its leadership, and changes to be made to prevent the likelihood of future crimes; and, for the most part, we got them. Nothing is ever perfect; but there has nevertheless been progress in the right direction.
Penn State's fan base seems to harbor more regret for the scandal coming to light than for the crimes. Most STILL can't imagine that JoePa knew anything at all about what was going on right under his nose. And, unless and until the school and its fans come to terms with that, my sentiment will be the same as it's been since the news about JoePa broke:
Fuck Joe Paterno and Fuck Penn State.
|10 hours 54 min ago||Meh||
He is a coach justifiably proud of his team. Most coaches would have said the same.
Also, Fuck Penn State.
|12 hours 8 min ago||Exactly||
That isn't a veteran team last last year's squad. Emotions play a huge factor.
|12 hours 33 min ago||I'd love to have a beer with that guy||
I felt exactly the same way after last year's MSU game.
|12 hours 55 min ago||Wasn't on that unit.||
That was on the coaches... it was OSU's blocked punt moment.
|21 hours 32 min ago||Yeah||
Let that sink in a while.
|1 day 35 min ago||Well, if we're being honest||
There would be a thread here. And then four days later, someone else would start a new thread with "Hey, you guys! Dantonio shaved his head and wore a clown suit!"
The subsequent snark beat down would be epic.

He'd design a play to bait Bullough into a PF

Just driving into a high wind. I can't believe they went for the home run though. That was stupid.

It was about the fact that I'd already sired two children and I did not want three.

Headed home after a short meeting, but won't be rolling in until very late this evening. Still, I'll be interested in banging this or that by the time I get home.

You're sore for a day, and it's probably unwise to engage in a rigorous game of dong punching. But the surgical techniques are actually only minimally invasive.
And, in a few months, your spouse/significant other gets to help you "prove," via a specimen collection, that there are no viable sperm left. That sounds like fun, doesn't it?
I know Hatter would probably enjoy that part, too.

That they go all U-Chicago and give up intercollegiate sports for the next hundred years.

But if you find yourself somehow enlightened, feel free to try making sense of the NCAA.
|3 days 4 hours ago||This could be an interesting matchup for our OL||
Speight could find himself in hurry-up mode in drop-backs if JBB can't at least hold his own. On the other hand, a number of runs up the middle with the FB could spell doom for Illinois, because Michigan has shown an amazing ability to hit the point of attack before the DL can react.
Jet sweeps, bubble screens, and wide-open TEs also seem like they could be the order of the day.

|3 days 13 hours ago||My only issue with these fancystats||
Is that LOLRutgers skews the results so much. Yeah, the Buckeyes played them too; and statistically, Michigan's stats were even better against that team than OSU's. But, still, I have the feeling that many of these statistical analyses should probably discount or dismiss the high and low values from each variable in the data set and see what it tells us.
