I'm not a fan of TV numbers since now a days nobody wears actual sleeves. If you must have them put them on the shoulders. I don't mind the lack of maize, since there is enough on the pants, but if we are actually going to wear white pants for a game, that's gonna be a pretty boring uniform compared to what we normally wear. But I'll wait until I see players wearing them on the field to actually judge them.

Of all the cities in LOTR, why Minas Tirith? I feel like Rivendell would be much cooler.

Funny you mention JCS. I had seen it as a kid but didn't really get into it, then I started listening to all the cast albums on Spotify and I'm hooked. For a few weeks I would listen to the Australian cast nonstop while I was at work.

241 posts in and no one is (or is man enough to admit) a geek about musical theater. I'll say, I like the Broadway shows more than any straight man I know. I like the big shows from the 80s like Les Miz and Phantom, plus the old Rogers and Hammerstein shows, and a lot of new ones as well. Before I see them, I'll listen to the cast album until I nearly memorize it. I'll go to see many every chance I get, whether professional or amateur, even high school. I learn about the actors and what other parts they have played. And my YouTube history is full of audience recorded scenes from big shows with the big stars.

If you could make a one of those time-lapse videos of your work on these I bet lots of people would watch.

Better idea, just transplant Morris's left arm and leave Rudock's right. Switch throwing QB!

Here's another vote for Liverpool. They are basically the Michigan of the EPL, long, proud, successful history, but little recent success. They are owned by Americans, the same owners as the Boston Red Sox.

Yeah but did he get his CDs back? I was half expecting Lloyd to buy them off the ticket guy and give them to Bennie at the end of the season.

$6M AAV is higher than everyone but Datsyuk & Zetterberg. Green is 29--I like the 3 year term, gives us a solid player without getting stuck with a terrible contract years down the road.
Who knows what Blash will do, but here's a wild guess at D pairings:
Quincey-Smith (just resigned for 2.75M so he's obviously still in the plans)
The rest: Kindl, Ouelette, Marchenko - I hope we can dump Kindl somehow and possibly trade XO or Alexey for an upgrade elsewhere. It would not serve to have them both stuck in GR all year behind the top 6.

Proposal - adopt football divisions for basketball. Yes it would be imbalanced, but it would keep rivalries intense. The East would be stacked, Wisco would have an easy schedule. I'm willing to play the West only once per year if it means guaranteed H/H with MSU, OSU, IU (and PSU, Maryland and Rutgers I guess).
Here's what I think should happen:
20 game schedule, home and home vs other 6 teams in your division (12 games) plus one game vs. each team in opposite division (7 more games). The last game can be (A) a protected crossover rivalry (IU and Purdue would probably want this); (B) a strict rotation (14 year cycle, and you play each crossover 8 times at home over the 14 years; or (C) a matchup determined by previous year ranking in the division (1v1, 2v2, etc.) for competitive balance.
You could even design the BTT so that teams play at least the first game against the opposite division.

"Sweep or Die" is rather dramatic. Let's not forget that we still have the B1G tournament to get us into the NCAA tourney. Obviously you can never count on single elimination hockey, but you cannot completely discount it either. We'll be the best team in the Joe and it will basically be home ice (I understand Minnesota has crazy good hockey fans, but I can't imagine too many will make the 12 hour drive). How many Wisco, OSU or MSU fans will be there with crappy teams to cheer for and their basketball teams in March Madness? They would all root against Michigan out of spite.
What I'm saying is obviously would be better to win than lose. But a loss in the next few games is not the end of the season.

You got the "Varsity" lyrics wrong. I always sing it: "Varsity, varsity, varsity, oh varsity, varsity, varsity, oh var-si-ty"

It's been a lot of games and fans are understandably weary of outdoor games (playing in Madison, Ann Arbor, Cleveland and Detroit over the last few years), but what's Michigan going to do when they ask, say no? Okay, they could and should have said no to this one. On the other hand, if Penn State calls to have M play in Happy Valley in the next couple of years, you can bet we will be willing to play the bad guy. As we should.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, it is the referees'||
Yes, it is the referees' jobs. Nobody is mad at the Cowboys guy (I don't even remember his name) who interfered with Pettigrew on that play in the WC game. I didn't hear anyone calling him or the Cowboys "cheaters." The players and coaches are not paid to make sure the game is fair, the officials are. Football isn't a sport with a tradition of "gentemanly play," unlike golf, sailing, tennis and others. There have always been and always will be teams that push the rules, and that's okay, as long as the officials are good there is no issue.

Serious request: I need this as a desktop or phone background. If any of our resident photoshop experts can make this pretty, I would really appreciate it.

Tons of acapella groups. Amaizin' Blue is the top one, I think.

Good for all of them. It always sucks to lose a couple of the top players for the GLI to the world juniors. Anyone know which ones have a realistic shot of being selected for the team?
|37 weeks 2 days ago||2 counters: I think you're||
I think you're missing (in the coming to Michigan paragraph) the fact that Harbaugh wants to finish the season no matter what. He is a professional, and will not quit on his team and players, even though he is out of the playoffs and effectively done. Two games isn't going to make much of a difference either way.
Also, you left out the third possibility, which I think is most likely--he doesn't know what he wants to do, and he has not ruled anything out. He is and always has been planning to wait until the end of the season. He has not made a choice either way. So again, everyone has to wait until the end of the NFL season.

That's probably it. I'll look out for that in the future. Have an upvote

Thanks for replying, but that's exactly what I did, and it didn't work. I thought I have seen embedded tweets before, so I dunno what's different.

It's a Funchess tweet. I was editing, but I no longer can since you replied...Sorry for the lack of context.
Does anybody know how to embed tweets on the board? I tried above, and it just blockquoted and stripped the link back.
