First time Bama's been an underdog since 2009. Have to take the points even if you don't love their team this year.
Have to agree with all 4 picks and rationale. I was actually looking at the exact same slate. Not much else of interest this weekend other than the Clemson - ND Pick 'em.

My brother and I noticed this during the game and we agreed it would be better if it were removed. If it is sponsored by the company actually providing the service, fine, but otherwise get it out of there - I do think it is a step in the wrong direction, even if a small / subtle one.

Logged in just to +1 this. And would do so for any Spinal Tap reference.

I have a feeling the "new" maize would win by more now that people have seen it on the field.
I, for one, think it is fantastic.

I like that we get to see the team sooner, but I think it is going to make Saturday sort of a bummer / letdown. Plus it lacks that familiarity of Saturday Tradition (TM) to mark the start of the season.
Ultimately how we all remember the Thursday start probably has more to do with the outcome of the game than anything else!

Its all about budget... they probably couldn't afford both him and Charles, so they took the guy they've already been working with.

Wilson videos are flipped relative to the commentary...
EDIT: Changed/updated upon refresh. Nice work.

Absolutely - that's my point. But not understanding the importance of "brand" ... seems slightly short sighted. We're on the same page here.

Feel free to explain further. How much have you studied about "brands" to date?
I'd love to hear your defintion and understand how it differs from identity or reputation.

Agree 100% - the AD's idea of "brand" got mixed up with the what the university should stand for.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Let's be Honest||
I love Harbaugh, but without a "brand," a degree from Michigan or any other named institution would be worthless. That's why the school you choose matters - its reputation, or functionally, it's brand.
That said, with regard to Brandon shenanigans, he had a messed up interpretation of what might add to brand value and specifically how that pertained to our athletic department.
So while I like the sentiment of criticizing the bullshit that the last AD rained down upon us, I am absolutely 100% inarguably a massive fan of the University of Michigan BRAND. Any alumnus who argues otherwise has something twisted.

Usually I go with Dunkin Donuts (brewed at home).
Also, in certain spots in the midwest (I know near Cincinnati for sure), White Castle actually sells coffee by the pound and the producer is actually a brand called Wallingford. Some of the best out there - you might be able to pick it up at your local Meijer...

The brats go wherever I go. They've been in random spots around Ann Arbor, Madison, Minneapolis, LA (among others) and Chicago these days...
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Boom||
Brats boiled in beer with onions & garlic, topped with a mix of onions and red/yellow bell peppers cooked down until fully caramelized. Finish the brats by searing them on a grill or in a hot sautee pan before serving and serve on a well-buttered, toasted bun.
Nothing says gameday quite like it.
Oh, and more beer for drinking.

Losing his job is going to cost him a lot more than $600.
Smart move, buddy.

This whole thread is just making my day better. Much appreciated.

Good for Rich. Seems like has a good thing going for himself down there though if he stuck with WVA, who knows what he could have done.

Yup. That was the secret of the PS4 launch.
They introduced their own Xbox Live but no one was paying attention because of the price difference with XB1 and concern about DRM.

But a special shout out to the drumline for their cadence, the walk to the stadium from Revelli and the step show in general. If you haven't been... go.

With the guy who had the same injury but didn't die, they 100% telegraphed that the shotgun wounds wouldnt be fateful no matter how it looked in the episode. I was 0% surprised when he survived, but I didn't mind either because I guessed it pretty quickly.

Man that pinky finger is hard to look at.
Thanks for posting - pretty solid bit of programming.

Pretty sure that's why he asterisked "Wolverine" and made a sub-note at the bottom...
