Astros fell off but are still a compelling story. But rooting against the Yankees is so fun that i want them to stick around.

Well, I think it is a near certainty Russell Wilson with 1:50 and 3 time outs leads the Hawks back even if the Lions get the ball.

They call her Natasha when she looks like Elsie

The Dolphins have not made a blockbuster move since hiring Saban. Firing Philbin early is a signal that may change. The landscape has changed so much since then (even Mississippi State is paying big money), that I would be surprised if Miami gets a college guy. You coach fewer games, and longer, for as much money, and arguably more prestige, in college.

To be fair, there is no way to be anything close to dignified when your team ekes by a terrible team, and you have the misfortune to be at a bar. I was at a bar in 2013 when Michigan needed a miracle to beat Akron, at a bar that was me and like five friends in town for a wedding when the game started, but was 90% Buckeyes (who were in town to see Cal-OSU) by the fourth quarter. Maybe the most awkward hour and half of my life.

This time last year Cardale Jones was holding a clipboard. Then Ohio beat the two best teams in the country. Not one single thing matters until Michigan plays them. Nothing. I have no doubt we get their best shot.

I always loved punt counter-punt. One columnist seemed to always be the voice of pessimism, back when it was dear. As much a part of game day as dollar dogs after the game. Keep 'em coming.

And for Chrissakes, go to Herbsaint for dinner. Best food city in the US and I say that as a SF dude.
|4 days 2 hours ago||So this is the 4th BYU game||
So this is the 4th BYU game I've caught. I like this team. If the receivers were more athletic they'd be better. The big WRs have missed some balls. They play physical (or try to, heh heh).

Pick, BYU. If turnovers were even this would be a two TD game

Molly's on the Market. Michigan bar as of last time I was in NO (Sugar Bowl 2012)

Let's be honest: Niners have just reverted to the level of flatulence from which Harbaugh had delivered them.

Score one for Midwestern pragmatism.

That is an interesting proposition. The student unrest and overall state of affairs was dire in the fall of 2014 (paying for the stadium remodel with a rapidly declining program and shriking student ticket base). Plus the push from the Regents.
But it is certainly plausible she gives Brandon more rope, pushes for reforms to appease the rabble, etc., and Brandon is allowed to choose Hoke's successor.
|1 week 10 hours ago||No way she could blackball||
No way she could blackball Harbaugh. He holds a Michigan degree. He is more Michigan than MSC.

Is it really so bad to be called Dad Rock? My dad likes the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, and the Stones.
|1 week 1 day ago||Hard to say. We are four||
Hard to say. We are four games into his run. Let's not skip over the part where Michigan gets really good and wins some games (which is assumed in the Harbaugh to NFL scenarios). That part is likely to be really fun.
|1 week 1 day ago||Spielman spent most of||
Spielman spent most of Saturday's broadcoast throwing out back-handed compliments and offering excuses to BYU (LOL at his Tom Brady "analysis"). This is just more insincerity.
|1 week 3 days ago||Here we go. Yeah that's true.||
Here we go. Yeah that's true. UCLA looks good. BYU was neck and neck. And Griese calling the night game. Good ass day

Tejas? Kicking ohhhhh noooooes

Utah deserves its own thread. A huge game for M's SOS.

|1 week 6 days ago||At least with Bikram you know||
At least with Bikram you know what you are going to get. Camel sucks, and dudes' backs ain't supposed to do that, but it's a set routine with no surprises. Worst case is a vinyasa class where the teacher (usually a perky female) goes rogue and does some standing-on-one-foot progression that makes it feel like burning at all points below the belt.
|1 week 6 days ago||My concern is that BYU plays||
My concern is that BYU plays keep-away with this guy, slanting and fading down the field to receivers only the MBB team could cover.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Power UCLA offense. PAC12 is||
Power UCLA offense. PAC12 is wide open. Michigan pressuring their QB will be critical.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||BYU will be tough. Big||
BYU will be tough. Big receivers. Exotic defensive looks.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Well, we went out starting||
Well, we went out starting Tuesday night. So weeks in the fall were like a whole munch of looking forward to two dollar taco night, or whatever, Friday was a buzzy blur, then it was game day. Weekends seemed like a winding down. Sure, most Saturdays had nominal parties, but they declined in intensity as the semester wore on. Three day work week started on Sunday, then it was Tuesday again soon enough.

Sounds bullish. Vegas line usually is. M by 27

Methodology is odd. Assuming the readers' poll would reflect the factors selected, seems to me that universities near cities like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles should dominate. Not college towns like Syracuse, Iowa City, etc.
