Thanks again! You always give me something to watch in the middle of the night.

Whoops. I guess my memory failed me.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I might be wrong about who||
I might be wrong about who this was, but I think it was Desmond Morgan who committed after Rich Rod was fired, during the coaching search.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Heiko, you do a supreme job||
Heiko, you do a supreme job with these transcriptions! Every week I am impressed with how readable in text you make the coaches' spoken words. I know firsthand that transcribing isn't as easy as people assume and isn't fun either.
This week I noticed a minor error that tripped me up for a second:
"You can’t win doing that. But the greatest quarterbacks ever, and I’m not just talking about the scramblers. I’m talking about the guys that can buy the extra beat to get the ball off just by moving their feet a little bit. Make that third play I’m talking about."
This I think should be just two sentences to make it more readable:
"You can’t win doing that. But the greatest quarterbacks ever—and I’m not just talking about the scramblers, I’m talking about the guys that can buy the extra beat to get the ball off just by moving their feet a little bit—make that third play I’m talking about.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Just to clarify, the victims||
Just to clarify, the victims in this case were NOT older than incoming college freshman. In at least one case, the abuse began when the victim was ten and continued for four years. I don't think that this is what you meant, but sometimes when the victims are seen as older teens it can mitigate the blame put on the perpetrator. These victims were definitely children.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||I agree that it would look||
I agree that it would look great if the numbers matched, but the way they have been done for this season is an accurate throwback to the old design.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||I thought I would hate it,||
I thought I would hate it, but in the end I like that it's a more accurate throwback than the "Legacy" mish-mash uniforms. The helmet number font is even accurate. It satisfies the uni-watcher in me, even if I understand the slippery slope argument against them.

According to legend, Bo abolished the gray facemasks because he didn't like us having any of Ohio's colors on our uniform.

I don't know if it will work come game time, but I found this one: http://www.firstrowsports.tv/watch/82405/1/watch-san-diego-st-vs-michiga...
|1 year 44 weeks ago||I see what you're saying.||
I see what you're saying. But if a school is really unhappy with NCAA findings (because of lack of evidence) what is their recourse? How does this work? Does the NCAA rely upon voluntary membership?

In Winnipeg, the novelty never wears off.

I don't think it was linguistic issues. Montreal is a French-speaking city. Just about everyone in Canada can speak English, but in many parts of Quebec people speak French as their first language, and Montreal is definitely one of them. When we went on there on our honeymoon, I was really surprised, it's like 99.9% French speakers. Other people speaking English were almost always visitors like us. If one lived there and did not speak French they would probably have a difficult time socializing as their presence would force everyone into English mode and as it is not a novel language to them, it's not something they necessarily enjoy doing. What I mean is, any sort of social/linguistic issues that might pop up with the players would be just as present in Montreal as they would be in Quebec City, is my opinion.
edit: I looked it up, and I'm going to post it here because it's late and I'm high and I think this is interesting.

mmm Flamin' Hot Cheetos. I haven't been able to find those since I moved to Toronto. I don't know if its just this area or if they don't have them in Canada, but I use it as an excuse to pig out on them any time I'm in the states.

mgovideo has always been great, but it is also improving constantly. it's amazing. thanks!
|2 years 4 weeks ago||I agree with you in principle||
I agree with you in principle completely. I think the idea is more that you endow a jersey in order to encourage the university to continue to recruit those types of players. Braylon's hope was that he could nudge Michigan to continue to go hard after big time receivers in his mold, and give them his number. I don't know if he truly expects veto power over who has the number, but I think he can reasonably expect it to stay on a WR. If I were the coach I'd give the number to my very best wide out, if I had one. I'd call up Braylon, let him know what kind of kid is going to be wearing his number, and then say, "Is that all right with you?" in such a way that he knows I'm not really askin', even though I am. It's the least I could do for his money.
Plus, I like big-time wide recievers, so I'm with Braylon on that. I hope Michigan always makes that a priority. (no implication intended)

I wonder if Brad Stevens will choose to play for Butler when he is old enough.

I agree completely save one part: our friends in Columbus?!

I love how this was only a few years ago but the video looks like it was made in 1991.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||I thought this idea sounded||
I thought this idea sounded familiar. I too feel like I've seen a video of a Michigan player with a helmet cam, but I can't remember for sure.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Yeah, and the peanut butter||
Yeah, and the peanut butter vs. water matchup was just shameful.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||I don't care about the argument,||
I'm just replying to see how much skinnier this column can get.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Yeah, but that's not really a||
Yeah, but that's not really a problem any of us can criticize because we'd all probably do the same exact thing if we had a constant stream of women (or men) trying to sleep with us.
I mean, even if you wear a condom every single time, at some point you're playing the rate-of-failure odds and every once in a while somebody's getting pregnant. I'm sure lots of athletes rationalize occasional unwanted children as the cost of having frequent sex with multiple partners.
But yeah, it costs a lot.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Maybe we should switch to LA||
Maybe we should switch to LA Gear, then.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||local flint media will||
local flint media will probably cover it on the next news cycle at 5 or 6 pm, I don't think they'd do it live though.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||"I was interviewing George||
"I was interviewing George Halas and I asked him who is the greatest running back you ever saw. And he said, 'That would be Red Grange.' And I asked him if Grange was playing today, how many yards do you think he'd gain. And he said, 'About 750, maybe 800 yards.' And I said, 'Well, 800 yards is just okay.' He sat up in his chair and he said, 'Son, you must remember one thing. Red Grange is 75 years old.' "

I'm a bike messenger in Toronto who rides around with a Mich cap most days, especially in winter.

Rumor has it the players tried the new jerseys but didn't like them enough to use during any games.
