at least we didn't blow an 18-point lead in the last 6:30 and lose to an ivy league team in overtime. #wearepennstate #Bigtennnnnn

If defensive hand checks are to be called, so must the offensive version --as in what Johnson did to McGary on the weak foul call. Elsewise just coach Walton up to stick his elbow up and run into people into the cows come home and the other team fouls out.

And by "the team" I mean "the Toledo Mud Hens"

If they erected a giant noodle outside the stadium, I'd make a special trip to take my kids to see it.

This is the first time I have ever encountered the possibility that Chick-Fil-A was anything other than midling fast food joint who took over the Peach Bowl. So it's actually good?

and also a coach for young kids (basketball, and formerly soccer). I thought the game was great fun, loved the effort, and hated the score -- but knew it resulted more or less from a cosmic coin-flipof sorts. On one hand, the conversion attempt is replaying over and over in mind like a GIF (I keep trying to get Gardner to steal a glance over his left shoulder, then tuck it and run, but it just won't happen). On the other, I feel much better about the team than I did a week ago.

so I was lucky enough to go to the game, and having traveled 800 miles or so to do so, I kind of resented the insinuation that I was a sucker to have done it.
similarly, it was a privilege to be at the game, and watch our guys compete at a level many seemed to think they were incapable of. while I woke up this morning still with a pit on my stomach about the final result (and with some component of my brain running the conversion attempt in an endless loop, trying to make it successful), I also feel like the players and coaches showed something that exists as a truth in this world every bit as incontrovertible as the tally that must be added to the loss column given the final score.
and in that, maybe there's something about sports, and life. for some, its only about the w-l column. details, stories, journeys, transformations (etc.) are irrelevant. that's fine, but a cold existence in my view. but for me, the core of sports is about character, which teaches and inspires in so many ways, maybe especially when its correlated with 12-0 or whatever, but necessarily so.
yesterday was not a day to leave the stadium singing "it's great to be a Michigan wolverine", but it was one in which I left feeling, inside, proud to be one.

I don't know what he'd say, but I like his track record: After a freshman year loss, he led M to a cumulative score of 50-9 (and three wins, of course) vs. OSU.

Not that I'm not a huge Tigers fan, but Donaldson does not get nearly enough credit for his Ultimate 80s 'do.
