My mind went to Najee Harris immediately. And once I figured out what was going on I was greatly relieved...
Time to quit drinking and go to bed.

Check out Saturday's America - the most revered college football book of all time. Worth the read.

It's Angelo Moore
Not his fault that he shared the spotlight with his bandmates.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Watch your car||
Take all your M stuff off or you might get the STAEE treatment.
Do that and you should be good to go.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Nice Things||
Thanks as always for these, bronxblue. Love coming here to see your take each week.
My how our standards have changed. The fact that we can hear "we can't have nice things" after a 78-0 victory is telling!
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||Along those lines... hope for Newsome?||
If I understand correctly, the determination on a medical redshirt is the % of season that a player has participated in. Clark played in 4 / 12 games and theoretically has the possibility of applying for this.
Not to get ahead of ourselves, but if Michigan wins the division, then the conference title game, makes the playoff and wins the semifinal, that would mean 15 games played in the season. Newsome would have appeard in 5 / 15 which is the same ratio as Clark. Does anyone know if this longshot hope would get him another year?

It made your avatar sideways. Tough all over these days...
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Worst: Speight||
No Worst for Wilt? He was off all game. Even on TV it was clear that he was missing on which receivers were open. e.g. the pick was thrown into quadruple coverage. How does that happen? A better option had to be available.
Worst also: Newsome's injury.
Re TV timeouts: It would be great if someone wiith a DVR of this game can count the gametime vs ad time here. I don't even mean the portion with running plays. Just how much they were broadcasting. A total joke. At least the NFL has safegaurds in place to make sure this doesn't happen (limiting the total # of breaks in a game). I know getting that negotiated for NCAA games would be tough, but it's brutal for the people in the stands and the players. Also irritating for those at home.

"You don't compare great to great."
|4 weeks 1 hour ago||Yeah, that's true||
And a lot of Bearcats in the office. But like half of the employees (he has a team of around 70 people), are Buckeye fans.

Bet a UW grad from work. Loser has to change his e-mail profile image to the winner's logo. I told him that's a bad bet for him because he surely hates Michigan more than I hate Wisconsin. (Though I guess that would change with a Michigan loss.) But he said, "Nah, I live in Cincinnati. It would be fun to piss off the locals."
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||I get what you're saying||
Before every play I'm looking to see where he is and often watching him isntead of the ball. (Probably like the opposing OC.) And really, watching him is just as good because it's very likely he and the ball will meet in short order.
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||8 teams?||
Before you label us all with your broad myopia brush, many of us prefer 4 or 6, and based on the comments in this section alone, nobody seems to be saying 8 is a good idea. It's been only three seasons (thus far extremely successeful). Let's see how this verison works out before we assume all are with in line with the concept of fundamentally changing the sport.

This kid is awfully impressive:

I see whatchoo did there. And I like it.

In general, when it comes to the New York Post, this is your best reference point:
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Texas||
That's the best option if the deal could be right.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||1994||
1994 was the best football game I've ever seen in person. Amazing back and forth from two heavyweights. Wheatley coming back from injury to reclaim the game right after the half. Just amazing, despite the depressing outcome.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||TFL is key, but also||
1) He needs to set a record for TFLs in a season. He is currently on pace for that, but it has to continue. Sammy Brown had 30 for Houston in 2011, next closest is Scooby Wright with 29 in 2014. These days a Heisman contendor needs stats, and it's the only one he'll be able to rack up.
2) Highlight reel - others have mentioned it, but he needs the vineable, gifable, wow plays, and they have to come against the top competition in big moments.
3) Contribute on offense - ideally with some of those wow plays in big games.
4) At least three more TDs of any variety
5) Michigan has to be undefeated
Others have mentioned interceptions which would certainly help, but are not necessary if he can set a TFL record.
The only relevant comparison is Charles Woodson. It was always a longshot that Woodson would win. But he had those wow plays and then some in the biggest games (PSU, MSU, OSU). He also had the luxury of going up against Peyton Manning who underperformed in the big games. If Louisville or Clemson stays undefeated and Jackson or Watson play well, it will be nearly impossible for Peppers.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Wow||
So the hero rides in on a white horse?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Tiger Rag||
One of my personal favotes, and used by many teams aside from Clemson (LSU, plus "secondary" use by Princeton, Auburn, and Missouri). Though I would agree that the Clemson version is the best. Would surely be in my top ten.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Because the Michigan abbreviation...||
...still captures the greatness? I can buy that.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Didn't know that||
But Rocky Top should still rate. It's an infectuous thing. I never liked it, but after spending one football weekend in Knoxville, my feeling and opinion did a 180.
Supposedly even Steve Spurrier once said that he finds himself humming it when they play it on repeat. Not sure if that's just a myth put out ther by Vol vans, though.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Saw the same thing, but...||
...it was weird and the broadcast did not show the full picture very well. I have to think that they either missed showing the handshake or the two just couldn't find each other.
And of course, it turns out they did shake hands:
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks||
Thanks for continuing to write these, BronxBlue. Love having this piece as a quick reaction to the game. I don't know how you do it with the two little'uns at home. I barely am able to watch at all! (Probably doesn't help that I'm on European time and so the 2nd and 3rd quarters come during bath/dinner/bedtime.)
|6 weeks 4 days ago||One cool thing||
We all know exactly what "WH Style" means.
Also, another cool thing is thank you very much for creating the video and posting it here. Very hard to give blowouts the needed attention these days with a 2.5 year-old and 2.5 month-old at home. I hope they grow up enough before the last five games on the schedule!
|7 weeks 8 hours ago||The related thought||
If Harbaugh can keep recruiting at this level, the "cost" of losing 5th yr seniors is much smaller. I guess that is what OSU is doing as well. So if it benefits the recruiting pitch, even better.
|7 weeks 19 hours ago||Question about redshirting||
How may the redshirt bonfire affect recruiting? Is there any benefit in how this may influence decisions of top talent?
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Hey this is really well done||
The end was a bit abrupt (perhaps on purpose), but overall great stuff. And impressive you turned this around so quickly.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||And the other galling thing||
How did Florida win their 1996 title? A rematch with Florida State.*
*Also, Michigan 13-9 over OSU didn't hurt.
