|2 weeks 7 hours ago||A few nights ago||
I was dreaming about The Game too. I only got through the first quarter before I woke up, but we were up 14-0 on two short field TDs. Might as well stop when you're happy, I guess.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I was thinking about hope this afternoon||
In relation to The Game. Hope is what drives fans to watch. The idea that anyone can overcome regardless of the odds. The one chance for glory and greatness that seems too distant. Hope is what will make me watch us play OSU on Saturday.
Can we win The Game? Sure. Could we win The Game? Of course. But will we win? I don't think I can take it that far. Don't get me wrong, I want to win so badly. But hope is a cruel mistress and sports is her mister.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||You forgot the part where||
Brandon threatens to cut off all our Johnsons while telling us to "just give him the money."
|2 weeks 4 days ago||No Brandon||
Dave Brandon is the CEO of our football team. And at the end of the day, if the money talks, he will listen and there's nothing Brady can do about it.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||With the weather supposed to bad||
The predicted score doesn't look too wonky. TD and three FGs against three FGs and a safety. Kind of milquetoast.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Sam Bowie was 2nd||
Sandwiched behind Hakeem Olajuwon and in front of Jordan.
Also in that draft, Sam Perkins, Barkley and Stockton.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||So you can beat Florida||
With three true freshmen on the line, but can almost execute next to nothing with redshirt freshman? Why is that? Maybe Florida didn't run the same defense as MSU, but it has to be something fundamental, right? Maybe coaching? Maybe talent? Something's gotta give somewhere.

|14 weeks 5 days ago||And theres||
Your schadenfreude early leader.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I think||
|15 weeks 6 days ago||I know||
At least Oregon had the decency to put some of the cheerleaders in its video. That way you can watch with the sound off, but still appreciate it.
|16 weeks 6 hours ago||So...||
They parodied a song that was made by a trio of white comedians as a joke to an idiotic acronym?
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Veras must be thrilled||
To go from the worst team in baseball to a pennant race overnight. Hope it inspires him to excel in his new role.
|20 weeks 6 hours ago||I love how he corrected himself||
about the length of time between the bowl game and now.. He just doesn't have it in him to say anything untruthful.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for reminding me||
Woodford Four Wood for me.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Also, the first question was about Dr. Hamlet III||
Hoke said that he wanted the offensive linemen, who live together, to be more like the "Hogs" of the Redskins' past O-lines. So they took it to heart and got a pig.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Mr. Ferns||
Priority mail that man a shirt.
Welcome home, Jabrill.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Does it matter if we watch him commit||
We're probably going to be able to watch him play for the next three to four years. Isn't that enough?
Oh, and screw Nebraska for failing.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||He posted a gif||
of the Human Tornado dunking and then flipping a guy in a high school gym.
I can't stop smiling. That made my day.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Hey David Shaw||
Game recognize game, and you lookin' kinda unfamiliar right now.
|32 weeks 3 days ago||All I can say||
Is that my Dad's best friend works for Ford media relations and he told me that Ford Sr once told him, "Bob, you don't need to win to be a winner." Take that for what you will.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||I would figure out how old I was||
And then judge whether I'm ever going to see Michigan in another national title game before I die. If the answer is probably, then I would get over it and move on.
Also, read all the articles you can find, like the ones posted on this blog and others, which say how great of a run this was and focus on that. This is just the beginning of the Michigan renaissance, which has been a long time coming.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||I would remind them of the 2004 Pistons||
A bunch of blue collar players who were supposed to get demolished by the flashy Lakers. The Pistons suffocated Shaq, Kobe, Payton and Malone because they were a team that embodied the state of Michigan - hardworking, grinding, and working harder than your opponent until they submit.
This is a Michigan team. We're going to play Michigan basketball. Not just University of Michigan basketball, but state of Michigan basketball. This is what we do. Let's go to work.
(I assume that Bacari would bring out the hard hats tonight if he gave that speech.)
|35 weeks 3 days ago||I may not die||
But I know I lost 10 years off my life watching that last minute play out.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||Did Jim Delaney chloroform the real refs at a commercial break?||
This is unreal. Where's Ted Valentine?
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Gus Johnson would like a word with you||
And that word is, "Uhh."
|36 weeks 5 days ago||OSU's region is so soft||
That they needed to hit two 3s at the buzzer to advance.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||So you can run into a guy standing still||
and it's a block? Good to know.
|38 weeks 12 hours ago||Somewhere Tenacious D||
Is beaming with pride.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||A man who's won 660 games||
In his career had to have taught defense at some point. However, for some reason, defense has not been a priority for this team. You would hope that over the offseason (because at this point, the light isn't going to be turrned on now), those who are defensive culprits will take the time to learn how to defend their positions more effectively.
But most importantly, they have to want to play defense. Maybe because they were scoring stars in high school, they didn't need to play defense because it was high school competition and they could get by with just scoring. But one year into their B10 career, hopefully it will hit them that defense is just as crucial. I can't contemplate why they don't think that now and at least put forth a modicum of effort.
But maybe they need defensive anuerysms. Stauskas and Robinson won't turn into Novak and Stu overnight. But at some point, the light better come on or we'll be stagnant.
