"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.

Why show this week's opponents in the O/D we've faced averages? Seems to make more sense to show teams we've played, average, then this week's team as a comparison to the current averages.
We haven't faced 4 top 50 defenses YET.

Steers/cattle are domesticated animals and have been for thousands of years. They are not unlike dogs, in that sense. All those "wild" horses and cattle you see roaming out west are actually feral.
And dogs didn't start out as pets. They were domesticated and bred over millennia. There is no such thing as a "natural pet."

Mike the Tiger has a 15,000 square foot habitat. He's in a cage when they take him to games. If you're against animals in captivity in general (zoos, circuses, etc.), I suppose that's a defensible perspective, but you're just making stuff up now out of ignorance. At least have an educated point of view before spouting off.
|17 hours 45 min ago||Talk about historically bad||
As bad as Michigan's start was under Rich Rodriguez that first year, even they managed to start 2-2. The last time Michigan was 1-4 was 1967 under Bump Elliott (started 1-5 before notching that 2nd win).
The last time Texas started 1-4 was way back in 1956, when they went 1-9. The previous year, they started 1-4, but finished 4-1. So there's still hope for this Texas team, I guess?
So yeah, historically bad. They haven't been as consistently good as Michigan over the years, though, with several losing seasons in the 80s, 90s, and even in 2010 under Mack Brown. Remember that 2008 was Michigan's first losing season since that same 1967 campaign.

and 10 years total, but Catholicism is still somewhat of a mystery to me. First, I grew up in Atlanta. Second, I'm of Korean descent, and there aren't many Korean Catholics (mostly, I'd say, Prebyterian).
When I first moved here out of college, I remarked to someone that she had a smudge of something on her forehead. She said, "No, that's ash." <blank stare> "You know, for Ash Wednesday?" Now, I knew all about Ash Wednesday, but not about this Catholic rite (?).
I also learned about Fish Fridays, went to my first Catholic wedding, and sat through my first mass.

He's suggesting that southerners don't take kindly to Catholics. And that's not exactly true. We just don't know any.

And the only reason it wasn't a shutout was because they scored a meaningless TD in the waning minutes, if memory serves.

It's like any sentence starting off, "With all due respect" actually just excusing the fact that you're about to disrespect the person, or "Not to be mean, but..." always being followed by something that is, in fact, mean.
"Not to name any names, but Joe is such a douchenozzle."

Granted, the point was not made particularly eloquently or clearly, but it's easy enough to infer the meaning.
As John Beilein once told Austin Hatch:

Some other conference can't meet its bowl obligations, in which case a 6-6 Big Ten team could be called up. It's not an unusual occurrence.

Hey, if God thought describing the universe after he made it as "good" was a good descriptor, then Harbaugh calling this team "good" is good enough for me.

Sorry, that was a whoopsie on my part. It's 6-2 against Cal (aka Cal-Berkeley) and 1-0 against Cal St-Long Beach in 1987. I was just trying to go in and edit, but you replied too quickly!

Note that it's games against teams from California and not games IN California, for which Michigan has a decidedly worse record.
