Thanks to Seth for a great Neck Sharpies post. UFR a-comin' or not, this post deserves a sequel that tells us what Brown did to adjust (and whether Dontario had a counter-adjsutment up his sleave, or not).

I read this when I was pretty young, but I got a kick out of About Three Bricks Shy of a Load. It would be interesting to read that and Collision Low Crossers side-by-side, because what I remember about the former was how chaotic things got even for a good team like the mid-70s Steelers, while the latter is about the intricacy and complexity of the Jets organization in the early teens.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||seconding that recommendation||
The author embeds himself with the Jets coaching staff/front office for a full year. You get a great sense of the people involved, from Ryan and Pettine to Revis and Sanchez. You'll come away with a great appreciation of how complicated the game of football -- and runnign a football team -- is, how f*'d up it is to be a coach, and a little bit of why the Jets are, well, the Jets.
Plus David Harris gets a little love, if you need a Michigan angle to keep you going.

Not sure, but I do think that the cast (and casting!) of the Fellowship of the Rings would have made for an excellent hockey movie, albeit with the recognition that they'd have had to stick to the Tolkein plot a little more loosely.

It's Wivalwy Week, dammit!

Show them some respect. . . I mean 'Wespekt' -- no 'R's' for the week before the game. I.e., It's WIVALWY WEEK!!!! #wivalwyweek
|9 weeks 1 hour ago||Close -- #WivalwyWeek||
Since we're up against a fiercely despised divisional foe, one who's coach has circled the calendars and laid down the gauntlet, I say we give this game the full-on hate week treatment.
What does that mean? Well, MSU week means no wearing green, and OSU means no O's in your cereal (and, if you're them, no M's on your promotional material). Taking a cue from the latter, I say this week deserves the no 'R' treatment.
That's right: It's Wivalwy Week! Let's give Wutgers the Wespect -- or is it the Diswespekt -- they desewve!
Who's with me?

Great at introducing revolutionary new products.
Also great at making those products incrementally worse with every update.

|10 weeks 5 days ago||but||
at some point planning "cheers" of various sorts trivializes the crap that went on. Silently turning one's back on the team is an outstanding protest (even if the kids on the team presumably had nothing to do with it). But incorporating cheers of various sorts might make it seem like we oppose the enabling of child molestation only because we happen to be playing a football game against a specific team at that moment.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Beef with Millen||
Is there a more inane comment available then "This is big, here." It's the football announcing equivalent of Cliff Clavin's use of "What's up with that?" when he tried out standup comedy in Cheers. I lost track of how often Millen said "This is a big play coming up" or "this is a big series", but it seemed to be farily constant throughout the game.

OK State only "won" because of a poorly worded rule that failed to anticipate a particular situation.
On the basis of the principle that "you should be able to acheive the end a game by committing a penalty," CMU earned its extra play. A poorly written rulebook is robbing CMU of the legitimacy that their win deserves.
