Can't wait for the inaugural Harbaugh beer Thursday PM in Ann Arbor!
Or will it be AM?

is saying it ought to be taken down, per se. What I'm saying (and interpreting a few others as saying) is that according to the rules we've read the last few days (repeatedly, and a bit ad nauseam), it's a marginal OT at best. In this respect I speak for no one other than myself.
Furthermore, no one I've read here is saying anything other than RIP Darryl. I remember him and liked him. And am sorry to see him gone.

Sorry he's gone, and think the post is a good effort. But one OT post left up in defiance of the rules is then justification for countless others. Suspect this one's coming down.

Beating OSU is way more important. They're our traditional rival, and beating them regularly will go a long way toward asphyxiating MSU's in-state recruiting. Besides, I just dislike the Buckeyes.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Great!||
Well done, BiSB! All that's missing now is the BBQ and a little something from the cooler. Bring on football!

Going into Columbus. That would be State. Hope not, but I think if we win at UT, we'll have a clear run to MSU. If we win against them, it's Katie bar the door.
So maybe there's been a bit of drinking here. (We had old friends over tonight). Whatever--the logic still stands.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Repent What?||
I read this in the afternoon, and again tonight after a few drinks with out of town visitors. And to be honest, I don't really understand what I'm supposed to repent. I've never thought those things.
And I think Dantonio (while a good coach) is an opportunist who is about to have the air sucked out of his recruiting room very, very soon. Harbaugh will eliminate (note, not compete with) the intra-state threat.

This one took evasion to a whole new level:
What is your opinion of playing two quarterbacks?
“There’s times you could do that. You could play two quarterbacks if you’d like to, sure.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Wow||
A new low! This stuff is like something out of Dilbert. The noodle, Cokes for tickets, sky writing--every new revelation about the guy is worse than the last one. Good riddance, Dave.

This fan base has earned the right to be giddy right now. Being down about it or--even worse--apologizing for it would be absolutely wrong.

Air Force, National Guard, and a third American, a student. Here's the post script on the story, with a happy ending:
Anthony Sadler, a senior at Sacramento State University, was traveling with childhood friends Stone, of Carmichael, California, and Alek Skarlatos, a National Guardsman from Roseburg, Oregon, when they heard a gunshot and breaking glass. Sadler told The Associated Press that they saw a train employee sprint down the aisle followed by a gunman with an automatic rifle.
"As he was cocking it to shoot it, Alek just yells, 'Spencer, go!' And Spencer runs down the aisle," Sadler said. "Spencer makes first contact, he tackles the guy, Alek wrestles the gun away from him, and the gunman pulls out a boxcutter and slices Spencer a few times. And the three of us beat him until he was unconscious."

I went to grad school at another B1G school, and I don't mind seeing them do well (esp against MSU, OSU, ND etc) but I've concluded that college football rooting is inherently winner-take-all. There are no proportional or even secondary loyalties, at least for me.

The MGoSophomore air taxi ride will be eastward only, and will leave here a few days before the game. SLC is only a short hop for us (from Boulder) but dorm move-in is 8am Fri. Would take a better pilot than me to see the game, then jump in the plane and fly 6 hours to A2. And that would be without beers, and, ahem, I plan on having some. I suspect I'll have a hard enough time getting up Fri AM as is.
Look forward to those stories though, and the beers. Think there will be some mighty big tailgates down the road for all of us.

Of course. And more than one, Xtra!
Then there's getting the bride's new hot tub hooked up this weekend. There's a trencher at Home Depot with my name on it for the AM.
But the best part of the rest of the summer will be loading up the turbo Mooney and bringing the MGoDaughter out for her sophomore year. And watching the start of the Harbaugh Era from Ann Arbor!

Was my barber when I was a student and townie (80's) and every time I come to town now I try to stop in. He always remembers me.
As an aside, Bo went to Coach and Four, which is indeed a few feet down the sidewalk from Bill's place. That place was run by a relative of Bill's--think his cousin. He had a signed photo of Bo on the wall that said: "To Jerry, the worst barber in Ann Arbor."
Bo would get his hair cut there super early (like, 5:30 AM), and if you were really lucky, and you managed to run into Bo then, he would scowl at you. When it happened to me, I thought it was awesome.

With the MGoBride and MGoDaughter. Aside from a few of the super important things like kids' due dates, I haven't looked forward to something this much since, umm, Christmas, 1968.
Normally though I would be with the CO Alumni Assn Chapter at some bar in Lodo, which ain't bad. But looking forward to seeing the start of the Harb-era from Ann Arbor.

It's not like the airport. There's no security check on any train I've been on in Europe.

That was an exceptionally generous (and crazy) gesture. Seemed utterly appropriate and am more than a little sorry I missed it.
The MGoWife and I will be moving the MGoDaughter into her dorm on the 4th. After a bit of a flight in the blue Mooney, we will be at Ashley's.
Can't wait! Bring on the Harb-era, and the Har-beers!

Is awesome. Thanks for posting the inquiry and thanks (especially) for the responses.
I'm building a bar (for far too long!) and am getting to the "what to put on the underside counters where you cut stuff up" part. This thread exactly answers the question.

Today. MGoDaughter asked "Were you wearing your (Block M) cap?"
Yes. Yes I was.

My usual routine is to make a big pot of coffee, turn on College Game Day, get a little pumped up for the game, then go for a run while listening to the pregame. Then we usually have people over or we go to friends' and there's something good either on the grill or the smoker.
In all the excitement about our Thursday game I'd forgotten there will be football on Saturday, too. This year I'll have just moved the MGoDaughter into her dorm and I guess I'll be flight planning to get home the following day. No better place to calculate weight and balance and plan fuel stops than Ashley's or Conor O'Neil's--with a full slate of college football providing the background. This season can't get here fast enough.

what do you mean?
If you mean revealing, I agree, though it'll be in a pathetic, cruel kind of way. While I don't think he's a bad guy, it sounds like he's got a chip on his shoulder and will probably indulge in a good deal of airing of the grievances.
But beyond that he strikes me as a terrible choice for a radio show. I've never heard him say a courageous thing ever (see "aware, but not fully aware" as Exhibit A) and the guy has a hard time putting a noun and a verb together, especially without an "umm" or "uhh" in between.
In a business dominated by the bold and articulate, putting Brady Hoke on the radio is like making hunting licenses valid for the petting zoo.
