I was thinking the same thing.
1. Do something asinine.

3. Back-pedal and deny
|2 days 10 hours ago||My worst is Michigan Stadium||
My worst is Michigan Stadium unfortunately. I like to be in my seats for kick-off and a little before if I can swing it. My then girlfriend, now wife, got a student ticket so we had to go get it validated. No big deal, I like walking around campus on game day, but it did put us a bit behind schedule. She had her purse with her to pay for the extra fee for non-students. Well, not thinking clearly we head straight to the gate and sure enough being late meant a huge line. It wasn't until we got to the very front some 20 minutes later that we realized they weren't going to let her in with the purse.
Fuck. Ok, walk over to Crisler to check it. Another huge line. Finally get inside the concourse about the end of the 1st quarter, get to our section and, ugh, line literally to the fence. Another 15 minutes, and it's midway through 2nd quarter before we finally get to our seats.
Midway through halftime, I go take a piss and yup, you guessed it, huge fucking line. They were doing work on one of the bathrooms or something so everyone on that half of the stadium had to use one bathroom. Finally get back mid-way through the 3rd and by that point we're getting blown out (can't remember the game, pretty sure it was 2009 though, so Penn State?). Just miserable. Oh and we go to get my girlfriend/wife's purse after the game and another huge line. I literally spent more time in line that day than actually in my seat watching football.
Close second would be 2008 Northwestern for obvious reasons.

Harbuagh's 3 step drop looks like he never quit playing.

I missed the Funchess thread, but I'm not surprised at all. Ever since the Fall Scrimmage, I've been saying how slow all our receivers looked. They made the secondary look amazing all Spring and Fall, and then ND torched us with guys that actually could run. We never could get an inch of separation even on mediocre defensive backs.

I don't know if I'd go as far as to say I won't cheer for him, but there's definitely a feeling he didn't exactly put the team first in his time here. From his lackluster blocking, to seemingly lack of focus this last year (e.g. drops, short arming catches, more bad blocking), to his early exit, his career isn't exactly one I would hold up as an example of a model Michigan student athlete.

This man is a fucking genius. Getting paid to not do something more than most people make in their entire lives.

Replies are threaded just like here, each reply is the next indent.
Comments and replies within the same level are sorted by upvote algorithm, so the best comments come to the top for each level, then top reply to that comment, etc.

I'm with Brian, I'll (grudgingly) give them the benefit of the doubt that they actually expect legitimate attrition.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||By the letter of the law,||
By the letter of the law, yes, but what matters is how you get down to the limit. If you have guys you've talked with in private and that don't figure to return, that's one thing. If you have guys that are getting pushed out or medicaled on trumped up injuries, that's another. I think the reason Brian said what ohio is doing isn't a big deal is because the guys that got medicals actually did have legitimate injuries.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, but relative to some of||
Yes, but relative to some of the prediction threads (so many threads) right when HARBAUGH got hired, that was spot on.
Recruiting is about relationships, and yes you do commit to a coaching staff just as much as if not more than a school. Harbaugh's star power got a lot of visits and interest, but in the end it's hard to trump relationships players committed elsewhere have built over years in just a little over a month.
I suspect that'll be the case with on field performance as well. There's a lot of inertia in a college program and those thinking Harbaugh will snap his fingers and make it all ok are likely in for a rude awakening come Sept.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Why does the Norfleet one||
Why does the Norfleet one bother people so much? He was a signing day pick-up with zero expectations. We'll get 4 years of production at KR from him (he's the record holder for total return yards, BTW), which exceeds what you expect out of a recruit of his level. I know everyone sees him juking guys in tight spaces and thinks he could have been more, but he really didn't get much out of his offensive snaps despite having a shot under two different offensive schemes. Not sure how a RS would really help there. I dunno, if Harbaugh somehow turns him into an unstoppable offensive weapon this year, I guess I'll retract my statement, but I don't see that happening.

Pipkins played a ton as a freshman and sophomore at a position of need before getting hurt. Guys get hurt and can't find the field again all the time, doesn't mean they should take a redshirt year to recover. That's pretty rare.

Considering his genes, whatever 40 time he claims gets zero FAKES from me.

had they not used most of the playclock before snapping the ball on 2nd down.
I think that's the key point. Belichick not calling his TO might have screwed with Seahawks enough that they A) let the clock run more than they wanted, and B) made a boneheaded playcall in a time-crunched situation.
Like I said, not sure if it was pre-meditated by Belichick, but it certainly is possible that it did mess up how the Seahawks handled those next few plays.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Saw an interesting post on||
Saw an interesting post on Reddit about Belichick "baiting" the throw that got INT'ed. If he had called time out right away, the Seahawks would have run, run, run all the downs to kill clock. By letting the clock run and probably surprising the Seahawks, they had to have at least one throwing play, probably two since they themselves only had on time out. They saw the goal line stand package and decided to run on 2nd down and the rest is history.
Not sure I totally buy it that Belichick had all that planned, but it's an interesting idea nonetheless.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I agree, way too many people||
I agree, way too many people are writing him off already. He looked bad so far, but not really that bad relative to his experience level and given the fact he's changed coaches every year. Yes, he'll be going through another transition, but more total experience should hopefully help him weather it a bit better this time around.

Recruiting is also only getting more front loaded too. Even in 2012, it was pretty common to be uncommitted until later. Now it seems like most quality recruits are all committed before they can even take officials.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||IIRC he had pretty much his||
IIRC he had pretty much his entire staff ready to go while Fickle was still coaching for the bowl game, essentially giving Ohio two staffs, one to handle the team, another to focus entirely on recruiting.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||We've been on the other side||
We've been on the other side on numerous occasions. Kid starts looking around, coaches get wind and tell them if they visit around, they're no longer committed, kid thinks better of it and cancels visits.

+1 from me. Just cut the cord myself recently. I was going to wait until end of football season (which I had assumed was early Jan for Michigan, lol), but after... well *that* happened, I cut the cord in Oct. This sling box thing from Dish looks mighty interesting, but I still need a way to fill in for BTN.

Sr seems to be taking an admirably hands of approach and letting his son decide for himself. I remember he came with on one of the visits (Spring Game?) and basically dropped Jr off and went and did his own thing with alumni and former teammates.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||13b free solo is ridiculous,||
13b free solo is ridiculous, that's what makes Honnold famous. 13b in general isn't that hard at all, relatively speaking, for elite climbers. You can find someone in most any gym or crag in the country that can climb that. You wouldn't even get a sniff at sponsorship at that level (male anyway).
Honnold is obviously a every good climber to be confident in tackling 13s free solo, but even if you consider his max red point grade 14b/c, he still wouldn't be in the elite class. What sets him apart isn't his maximum grade, its how far he's willing to push free soloing.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||What Alex does is relatively||
What Alex does is relatively easy, but dangerous. What these guys are doing is relatively safe, but ridiculously hard on a technical level. Skill vs balls, although yes certainly an element of both for each case.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||The nomenclature is weird.||
The nomenclature is weird. Climbing first started with pulling oneself up on gear at least part of the way. Today that's regarded as "aid climbing" but back in the day it was just normal climbing. To distinguish ascents that were done with out weighting or pulling on gear, the term "free climb" was coined. Climbing without a rope is known as "free soloing."
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Hard to say. The thing is,||
Hard to say. The thing is, you have to be absolutely obsessed with the project. Caldwell has worked on this close to a decade amd Jorgeson for 3. There are certainly other climbers strong enough to do it, but they're usually focused on their own projects and I don't see them basically putting everything else on hold for long enough to learn all the details about the climb that you need to be successful.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||The only thing that makes||
The only thing that makes their attempt not ground up is that they were resupplied. Being pitches apart isn't a big deal and only happened because Caldwell really wanted Jorgeson to send the crux pitches too. In a normal attempt, Jorgeson would have just jugged up fixed ropes and continued with the rest of thr climb. And he actually did do that anyway to belay and help Caldwell.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||That's not typically the||
That's not typically the standard for freeing a route. You can fall as long as you lower down and repeat that pitch, not the entire climb.
