- Seriously, how did MSU go undefeated?
- Spent the entire 2nd half answering PSU fans questions of "Why aren't you guys throwing it to that dude who is always open (Funchess)?"
- As stated above, Denard was Denard-ing and then we just decided not to try anymore
- That's when I knew the game (and the off-field component of it) had passed him by.

This reminds me of John Navarre's Heisman year. A friend of a friend made some "Navarre for Heisman" shirts and to be ironic. Then he had a pretty good year, so they lost a bit of the irony.

Agreed, he's still got it.
But 99% of people know him as the annoying Hot Take guy now, so I think that overrides his few good boxing appearances per year.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||A big part of the reason||
A big part of the reason Lampley is so amazing is that they stick him with Larry Merchant... who is not all there anymore, or with a parade of boxers who are in the beginning stages of their sunset and add nothing. He carries them all and genuinely adds to the telecast.
Always wished Lampley had called other sports besides boxing on the regular.
Also, Max Kellerman, before ESPN made him into a hot take-r, used to be so great and knowledgeable. But now he's just another sports talk radio hack.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||Easy... 1. Jim||
Jim Lampley is the best fight caller in the biz, by a mile, but also bounces around to baseball, the olympics, and other random sports, and kills it. I'd listen to him read the phone book.

Liked most of the gear, but thought some of the designs were just lazy (and got negged for voicing that opinion), like the shirts below.
But then a few weeks later, Nike revealed the ugly stuff was just part of their 2016 template for all teams:

I honestly have wondered why he hasn't yet transferred. Seems like a great team player, but I don't see where he's going to fit in, and have wondered when he's look for his opportunity elsewhere.
Hopefully he can find a niche somewhere on the team.

You can luck into a national championship. To do it 5 times means that you are good at your job.
So yes. He is THE elite coach.

He has every right to not announce til he's ready. Good on him.
It's the stupid 24/7 news and social media cycle that needs to generate more "news" every few hours, even if nothing has changed.

Question to fans who went to the last game at Jerryworld. Obviously the outcome sucked, but how was the gameday experience? Was there tailgating? Did it feel like a UM game?
I know people who have gone to cowboy games there and basically say it has the personality of a hospital and you spend most of your time watching the screen and not the field. I'm not from the Dallas or Ann Arbor areas, so the choice is basically going to AA for a less high profile game before it gets too cold, or spending a holidays weekend in Dallas for this one.
I'd like to here feedback from people who have the previous experience.

I don't feel like there's a lot of "troll" posts, just a lot of people who don't know the ettiquette or want to add a "me too" thread. These are the ones that annoy me.
Any new post that starts with "I know this was discussed in a previous thread, but..." should be negged to hell and the poster sent to wherever they sent Tate Forcier to disappear.

I've been to about ~47 countries and I've counted about 4-5 where I did not see at least one person wearing something Michigan.
Random alum/player encounter I do enjoy telling:
I fly to/from Seattle about every 2-3 weeks for work, and I've accrued enough status that I get upgrades from time to time. When you're on the upgrade list, you can see how many open seats there are and a list of names and their order.
So this summer, I was #2 for an upgrade and there was only 1 seat open and the name in front of me was JON/D (they don't liste entire names). JON/D got the upgrade, and I didn't and as I boarded the flight to get into my coach seat, I saw thast JON/D was actually Dhani Jones.
Go Blue... but seriously, I really wanted that legroom Dhani!

I honestly think there's a segment of the committee and voters who knows last week was a screw job and really wants to make it right by putting us a loss away from the playoff. That, and I think they realize that Washington versus Bama would be a curb stomping, like last year's MSU playoff game

Wondering if we can leave it open for a day or two, rather than cappping it at $10k.
THEN challenge the Big Ten to match that number.

Holy crap! So many stats! This is the opposite of the usual espn fluff. Would love it if they used this as the template for more articles going forward.

Watched the Bama-LSU game and thought the same thing. Both teams have offenses that are wildly efficient because of their defenses.

Yes, if you strippped the names off the resumes, Michigan and Alabama would have extremely similar resumes.
BUT... 'Bama is the reigning champ and will (rightly so) get the benefit of the doubt until someone beats them. This shouldn't be a surpise.
