"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

IF M were to breakout a chrome version of the iconic winged helmet, it would be the most awesome chrome helmets ever - should south Ann Arbor wihtstand the storm of flaming meteorites that would surely ensue.

Those glasses are calling out to have dollar signs photoshopped onto their lenses.
|4 days 12 hours ago||not breast cancer research||
5-Hour Energy is donating some unspecified portion of their profits -- a minimum of $200,000 to "Living Beyond Breast Cancer", a non-profict dedicated to "connecting people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support."
That may not be here nor there, and the organization may be a very good one -- but it's not "research."
|6 days 10 hours ago||former player in front of us||
We sit right behind a former player (mid-Bo era), from whom I've learned two abiding lessons:
1.) Don't boo the scholar-athletes. Bemoan theplay selection, question the refs -- all fine. But don't boo a kid who is risking broken bones on every play for your entertainment. (When someone in the area (not me! never me!) violates this, he'll turn around and glare, for a good 30 seconds.
2.) If you don't go, give your tickets to a fan. Woe betide he who shows up the week after having opposing fans (especially obnoxious opposiing fans, which the ones that travel often are) sit in your seats.
I respect both points.
|6 days 12 hours ago||so he's available...||
bear in mind in case we find ourselves in need of a proven OC or OL assistant.
|1 week 6 days ago||parallel universe||
I'd argue that OP posts about a parallel track in the same universe. A real parallel universe (and what I was half expecting to read about) would be one in which Tennessee fans, in contemplating their own prospects for a coaching change, start saying "Hey, that Brady Hoke guy might be available soon, and isn't he just what VolNation needs...."

that's a tough break for anyone, but expectedly an athlete committed to his team. my rights are with Derrick, and I hope and envision a full recovery. Come back better then ever next year!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||agree, with the exception of one position||
Should be an interesting competition.
Or should we be scanning the horizon for Russell Wilson-like transfer candidates?

Do you know what is a bad tendency in a Home Run friendly park? Giving up home runs. Price had 25 gopher balls this season, 8 more than JV.
Also, Verlander is 7-0 in Camden Yards. Finally, Price's two brilliant starts to end the year were both in Comerica -- might as well keep that constant.

also that Nixon guy -- you know, Gerry Ford's old boss?

I would chalk up much of this board's reaction on Saturday night and Sunday to over-reaction, at least in terms of the calls for heads. However, the athletic department's reactions since Saturday night have absolutely justified the extremism of the initial reactions, at least as regards the director.

Is this comment cut-and-paste from the Gibbons debate? A pattern (not that pattern) emerges...
|2 weeks 6 days ago||timing||
my guess: Brandon goes as soon as negotiations with Manuel are far enough along to permit it. Manuel then gets to 'evaluate' Hoke, essentially meaning he gets until December
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||discipline is appropriate||
UM or Big 10/14 should ban Hoke from the sidelines (and the stadium, if it is enforceable) for a game. In all likelihood, UM should dismiss him at the end of the season.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||No||
I was livid when that happened, at the game. Morris went into his slide, finished his slide, and was doing nothing but basically lying there when he got nailed in the shoulder. The Minnesota player has no business running at Morris in any event, much less making contact. Look at it this way:
-it is illegal to hit a sliding QB (that is the point of sliding)
-it is illegal to hit a player after the whistle has blown
-hitting a lsiding QB after the whistle is two wrongs, and not the kind that make a right.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||not really here or there, but . . .||
The Big 10/14 had better suspend Cockran for at least a game, if not two. That was one dirty, intentional lick he laid on the QB.

we don't have any captains, or won't until after the season.

I thought there were some good parts to that presser, and some not so good parts. Obviously, we want more of the good parts, but he's working hard and taking every presser as a new opportunity as it comes.

We've got good players, just about everywhere. And yet we lose. Maybe coaching is an issue?
