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.

Been here four years and not leaving any time soon. We should grab a beer and also watch one of these upcoming games.
|1 day 14 hours 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.

I too have a 21-month-old daughter and barely have time to read your output. Impressive work!
|1 week 2 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.

Anyone managing anything can look at this and very quickly learn a lot about what not to do.

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.

Ace has really stepped up his Andy Richter game. Perfect compliment to Brian and either guest on this podcast.
|4 weeks 5 days 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:
|5 weeks 1 day 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.

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.

|6 weeks 1 day ago||The sad thing is...||
...it probably could have been any of the weeks. Hence the horrible blur of crap.
|6 weeks 2 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...
|6 weeks 2 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.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Pretty much yeah||
And seeing Hoke "coaching" from the sidelines won't bring with it any warm fuzzies.
|6 weeks 2 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.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Interesting||
...that they were trying to ban it in '89, but the practice continued through at least 1995 or so.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Had a similar thought, but||
"Mon dieu! Je suis tellement défoncé juste maintenant... Ce monsieur ressemble beaucoup à Jim Harbaugh! Allez bleu!"
|7 weeks 10 hours 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.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Yes, but||
Yes, but had the inflatable Pepsi cans imply bought two cokes it could have gotten into the stadium
|8 weeks 3 hours 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)?
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Driving to Italy||
Ya heard me.
|9 weeks 11 hours ago||Bottom Line||
All parties agree that Michigan was going to honor Pipkins' scholarship. The only remotely reasonable "debate" is the level of pressure applied. Harbaugh could have said "OK, keep at it, buddy" and kept him sidelined. He's been more direct with the player, and as recently noted on a completely unrelated story, it's a free country. If anyone is lying here, it is about minutiae anyway.
Sad to see him leave. Sadder that such a young man has gone through the injuries he has. Not much more need be said.

A new one I just heard:
I haven't talked to my wife in years. I didn't want to interrupt her.
