he's probably kidding.

And Mattison shrugged and said I don't know.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, that is a problem||
Hopefully Gardner figures out he needs to just eat it sometimes. He does that a lot and it had the same result in the 2011 spring game, I think. I think MSU's defense would be the next defense that might really key on that move.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Gardner is terrifying for opponents,||
Gardner is terrifying for opponents, but they are not fooled by his tendency to blindly spin away from pressure. It proved to be especially costly on his mistake in the endzone. But hopefully we've seen the last of a defensive line that can make him pay for it.

This is probably my favorite moment from the game, to be honest.

|15 weeks 4 days ago||It's not about deaths||
It's about quality of life following retirement from the NFL. compare the rates of dementia in NFL players to those rates for horseback riding, bike riding, and swimming. I suspect ex-NFL rate is much, much higher. So you may be less likely to die, but way more likely to be mentally impaired. That trade off bears exploration and discussion, no?

looked like his pass protection left something to be desired.

Shh, no one tell him
|25 weeks 13 hours ago||Not near TV...||
|26 weeks 3 days ago||thanks!||
|28 weeks 4 days ago||More than that||
Hoke backed away from the chicken comment on the Dan Patrick show afterward. It would look foolish and petty to embrace the chicken theme again. Everyone just needs to move on. Beat them on the field.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||Well||
Not to take anything away from the young man, but he didn't really out jump anyone for that ball, it just sort of came right to him. The kid is a suprising performer though.

no. Now go sacrifice a lamb.

What's your deal?

The Vog. 3?
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Saw it on the CBS online feed||
Not sure if you can still get it if you replay the game, but I just left it on my browser and they cut to it after some commercials. Two things I saw:
1. Right before the trophy award ceremony, Beilein is organizing the team and switches the bill of Tim Hardaway's hat from backward to forward.
2. After everyone cut a piece of the net down, Beilein cuts the rest of the net down and climbs down the ladder, whereupon the team forces him to put the net around his neck. Beilein does this for about 2 seconds, starts looking uncomfortable in the spotlight, and gives the net to Hardaway.
This team seems like a family.

I wouldn't talk to Snoop that way Ross...
|38 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks||
|38 weeks 2 days ago||What time tonight does all the actual selecting happen?||
I've never really watched it the night of before...is it anything like the bowl selection show? Do they announce by region, or seed, or what?
|40 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, but||
Yeah, but some fans are that impressionable. Bandwagoners will latch on to whatever they perceive to be the prevailing opinion. So in that sense, authoring a well-thought counter-point may actually cause some people to chill the f-out. I don't think the OP was expected that everyone would agree with him/stop complaining. But I also don't think you can argue that it's completely futile, at least to people who act based what others have to say. It's probably better to have more than just negative opinions out there, yes?
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Well||
There are more contributors, each one being slightly different, so maybe that explains it. But I try not to complain when everything's free of charge. If you really feel strongly about it, just write Brian.

NorCalGoBloo: "Strong likelihood" Gene Smith is talking out of his ass again.
I hope what he says is true though.
|43 weeks 5 days ago||Oh my that was exciting||
and totally unexpected. Huge letdown from IU there. I guess the B1G really is a tough place to play on the road...fingers crossed for saturday!!
|43 weeks 5 days ago||Well I'll be damned||
Illinois tied with 37 seconds to go!

There's a certain amount of arrogance you display when you imply that everyone thinking that DB has made some missteps with his branding campaign is a blind follower.
Not everyone who agrees with Brian falls at his feet. Sometimes people just share the same viewpoint; that doesn't mean they're sheep.
Your post seems to ignore that, on an issue by issue basis, people may agree and disagree with one another, even going so far as to form so-called consensus opinions, without invoking the bandwagon effect you seem to abhor. I like some of DB's decisions, and dislike others, for my own personal reaons. Some of those reasons are also articulated by the purveyor of this blog, but because people often share viewpions, assumptions, and processes (i.e. not for the reasons you think.). For example, I have disliked the increased presence of crappy pump-up music and unrecognizable uniforms in our most high-profile games. Personally, I think alternate uniforms should be worn in the least important games.
If you're in the minority, sometimes that just means that your opinion is less prevalent than those of the group at large. Doesn't mean everyone in the majority is playing follow the leader. It's lazy to brand the majority as sheep, because it disregards what might be a legitimate and justified weighty opinion in opposition to yours without any fairness of addressing the core of their ideas.
That having been said, your post was interesting and it's great to read everyone else's opinions on here.
