Ok. We're going to have to agree to disagree. Hasn't achieved anything? Have you forgotten how low we had fallen under previous two coaches? Wow. Hasn't achieved anything? Wow. He has already made us relevant, something haven't been since 2006, for one thing.

Looking at that fair catch by W just now, with Bama player up so halitosis close, I wonder, should receiver just step forward a touch to bump into him & take 15yds?

*rivals away in 2017, not 2018, I think. All more reason to keep tempered expectations re: next year
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Huh? Two 10 win seasons is||
Huh? Two 10 win seasons is already better than Hoke. (Or RR) 20-6 first 2 seasons. Upward trend. All better than Hoke (or RR).
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Before the season started, we||
Before the season started, we had big question marks at QB, O line, & LBs -- key positions to say the least. So, 10-3 from that perspective is over-achieving, especially if you consider where we were two years ago & since Harbaugh we're 20-6, which I think is 6th best in power 5. From where we were? Seriously? Sure, there's room for improvement, but this has been a great start to the Harbaugh era by any estimation (except perhaps the one week when we sat at 9-0 this year). Lots to worry about next year with so many seniors this year, and then with rivals away games in 2018, but: am I pleased with how we're progressing? Hell yes, I am. Am I satisfied? Well, like coach says, satisfied isn't a word one uses in football!

I was at that 2006 game down in Columbus. That late hit call (Crable?) was the single moment on which turned our decade of discontent. Big10 was 3-1 in bowls vs SEC that year. Only loss was OSU to UF, and we annihilated UF the year after in bowl (-4 on turnovers, all red zone, so score didn't reflect just how dominant UM was in that game). No flag back in Columbus that day in 2006, and we're maybe celebrating another national championship that year & none of the ugly years, & Ess Eee See bs, that follow

With the weather, I wouldn't be surprised if they shelf they slow, erratic passer for Zander Diamont and go mostly run offense. The way team's have been able to get the edge against us at time, they would be smart to make that switch, I think

Yep. They all are. At least another one, likely two

Stribling really was fantastic. Like dragon child says too: need Scottie to be very, very good if other team not to make hay by simply avoiding Jordan/LewisPeppers. The pass break up honorable mention GIF was even better than either pick, imo
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Actually, I thought he said||
Actually, I thought he said -- Wow -- a kind of under his breath, shaking his head at the play, relief b/c he and several others thought he'd left his feet too soon (my sense too) -- but mouthing 'wow' nonetheless because, yeah, wow.

Seriously, though: is that guy all right? Was he carried off the field? Not want see anyone get literally killed or even close to it out there, and that looked like coulda been close to it for sure.

Not able to watch. Just checked score. Lots of time left, thankfully, but can that really be the score that far into second and only 60-some points combined? Yikes. Must be some bad basketball I'm missing!

They're called ULWR's now -- Upper Level Writing Requirement -- used to be called AWD -- Advanced Writing in the Discipline. Faculty across LSA teach them. Sweetland Writing Center supports the GSI's (Graduate Student Instructors) for grading & TA'ing them.

Dickerson does the Lions too, no? And I swear I heard him doing radio for one of nfl playoffs this weekend -- was our Lions PBP guy anyway, that I am sure. And that's Dickerson too, right?
|1 year 9 weeks ago||My glasses must be more||
My glasses must be more blue-tinted than most others here, but when I watched the scrum after the game, I see Kearney move his head forward to shout something in Martin's face, and Cutler blasted him for it. Yeah, Kearney is under the ref at the time, and Martin is supposed to laugh it off in that case, but that was the literal askin' for it, so Cutler gave him what he asked for. A suspension but not so terribly cheap a shot, as I see it. Kearney was looking right at it, leaning up into it, actually, to deliver whatever expletives he had in mind to deliver. Hope they were worth the price. The one game suspension seems about right to me. Does anyone know if it's US under18, which I hope but doubt, or is PSU game one?

Looks like may be an awesome class, but help me out: why aren't we more PANIC about the lack of LBs?

Ok. This is no way to spend a Friday night. I should just leave the DVR on and see in the morning if we ever get our heads out of our asses this game
