|1 week 5 days ago||I think many are being overly optimistic||
The stats look pretty good, and the team is definitely making improvements. But there are so many mistakes throughout each of the last three games. It seemed like a step backwards compared to OSU (perhaps to be expected), but all accounts indicated that this should be more of a walkover than it was. That two of the four TDs came off of big plays that likely won't be there against anyone not named Indiana, Rutgers, or Maryland makes me very concerned about the offense. Put another way, it would have been better to see more than two sustained scoring drives against the UNLV defense. Or another way: Doesn't five punts seem like a lot against UNLV, especially with a turnover on top of that?
Next week will tell us a lot more, of course. Can't wait!
|2 weeks 3 days ago||One I would have liked as well||
(Sorry to be late to the party, Ace)
Peppers chasing down the RB on OSU's first TD drive. Right near the beginning of the game with 14:28 on the clock. Not a good Michigan play, and obviously not a fun part of the game. But man does this kid have wheels!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||"He snapped it real hard."||
Hilarious line that cracked me up, Ace.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||On the shoe or the shirt?||
That is the quesiton. I can see the Jordan logo working on the shoe. If they put it on the jersey it's going to be weird.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Love it||
Best part is seeing Woodson in his Michigan jersey.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Tres bien||
OK, so we should take this off the threa (but I'm not keen on publishing my e-mail address here). If you click the link in my signature, it'll take you to my old blog where you can see the e-mail near the top right.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Also Geneva||
Been here four years and not leaving any time soon. We should grab a beer and also watch one of these upcoming games.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Two thoughts||
1) Brian usually links to a bit torrent of the game in his post-game posting, but that won't work with your social media blackout.
2) If you can find a friend who has a slingbox, you should be able to have them DVR it and watch the next day. Or even watch live. I believe anyone who has Dish network has this feature automatically.
I'm in Switzerland and have similar problems, but #2 has worked for me the last two seasons. (Can I say regrettably? Regrettably: it's no fun watching us blow a dumb game to PSU on an ipad at 2:30am...)
I'm sure some other denizens 'round these parts have better intel.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Sad yes, but||
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Kudos to you BronxBlue||
I too have a 21-month-old daughter and barely have time to read your output. Impressive work!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Clemson vs Miami||
OK, I get that there is important hsitory vs Miami, but anyone who would prefer a home-and-home in Coral Gables is likely waaayyyy too into dance clubs or overrated beaches.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Lasting lessons indeed||
Anyone managing anything can look at this and very quickly learn a lot about what not to do.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Bummer||
Sorry to hear this, though it was expected. We'll always have Atomic Dog and sadly not much else.

The MSU fans in the comment section of the article are hilarious.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Ace||
Ace has really stepped up his Andy Richter game. Perfect compliment to Brian and either guest on this podcast.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Harbaugh's on it||
All I know is we won't have to worry about a bad seat at the big house this year:
|9 weeks 4 days ago||The whole season is about||
Beating Ohio State. If M beats Ohio State, it will be a tremendous success regardless of record. If not, then it will be a "stepping stone" season as long as the record is 7-5 or better.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Floyd||
I was watching the 1997 Colorado game yesterday and realized though it would be unorthodox, and maybe I would be the only one interested, I would love to see a WH Chris Floyd video. I realize it would be 65% blocks, but they would be kickass blocks.
Thank you for all your wonderful work.

...actually cheered me up ever so slightly after Colorado '94. Should have been impossible. Good dude that Bongo Man.

|10 weeks 4 days ago||The sad thing is...||
...it probably could have been any of the weeks. Hence the horrible blur of crap.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Most painful||
Most painful loss I've had as a Michigan fan. Still not over it. Can't really watch it. If only we'd had better cleats...
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Disagree on NU||
An "amazing" game due to the high number of points, but that was driven by the comedy of errors by both defenses. Even the ending was brutal - Michigan in position for a long FG try from Epstein and the ball goes through Navarre's hands on the hold. Plus, in addition to Thoms' fumble, Damien Anderson dropped an easy TD pass right before. Just a mess all around.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Pretty much yeah||
And seeing Hoke "coaching" from the sidelines won't bring with it any warm fuzzies.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||1994 ND should be near the top of your list||
Amazing game. The 1994 Penn State game was also amazing, but unfortunately we lost. 1994 was a crazy year. Others:
1996 OSU - not a "great" game, but the good guys won.
1997 ND - Just to appreciate how that defense saved the season almost before it began.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Interesting||
...that they were trying to ban it in '89, but the practice continued through at least 1995 or so.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Had a similar thought, but||
"Mon dieu! Je suis tellement défoncé juste maintenant... Ce monsieur ressemble beaucoup à Jim Harbaugh! Allez bleu!"
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Tickets||
It's silly that Sherman connects the antics to ticket sales. The reputation of a winning coach and favorite son coming in is accounting for 99% of that.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Yes, but||
Yes, but had the inflatable Pepsi cans imply bought two cokes it could have gotten into the stadium
|12 weeks 3 days ago||On DB's negotiating skills||
Is he also to blame for games in East Lansing in consecutive years (and now MSU and OSU either both at home or on the road in the same year for the foreseeable future)?
