Being force-fed like a goose in France.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||And we also apparently have 6||
And we also apparently have 6 OL that are going to play this year. If we need a heavy set, why not just the 6th OL instead of burning a redshirt?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I think their eyes are||
I think their eyes are crossing after the content deluge this week. Each successive post has more of those types of little errors. I'm sure it'll clear up when they get back to their normal schedule.
If it doesn't, I'm more than happy to do some pro-bono editing for them.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||No mention of Asiasi? I just||
No mention of Asiasi? I just don't see the point of not redshirting a TE this year. With the number of blocky-catchy types on the roster right now, what real good would it serve to play him? And getting a year of seperation between him and Wheatley helps down the road, right?

Thank you very much. Now, can we get a Draftageddon for the MAC?
|4 weeks 7 hours ago||Please, please, please go||
Please, please, please go back to video links that open a box on the site instead of links to youtube. It makes these so much easier to digest.

Good to hear that Jake Butt is a "great" at blocking now.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Don't question the writers.||
Don't question the writers. Don't you remember what happened when the readers questioned the wisdom of blowing up high schoolers' twitter accounts with DMs?
|6 weeks 4 hours ago||I was a long-time commenter||
I was a long-time commenter at TBL up until the move to facebook commenting. I lost count of the number of times I got into arguments with Tyberious Q. Duffington. He's just a hack with a thesaraus.

It was edited from the joke about the llama on PCP.
|6 weeks 5 hours ago||A Michigan grad who has||
A Michigan grad who has written for The Big Lead for years. I'm surprised that Brian links to him, considering how much he used to dislike the founder of TBL.

When has Ty Duffy ever been right about anything?

I hope not. I'm moving there next month, and I'd like to be a volunteer coach for their tennis program.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||And I failed to mention that||
And I failed to mention that the rest of the games (Cubs games to be precise) I watched on my DVR and fastforward through commercials, replays, pitching changes, and the 7th inning stretch. It's a great way to watch a game.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Which is why I enjoy watching||
Which is why I enjoy watching British soccer so much. They let the game breathe, and I only have to deal with 1 or 2 former players as announcers over the course of the entire season, which lasts longer than baseball.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I watch a full game at least||
I watch a full game at least once a week. It's rather easy to do if you don't require constant over-stimulation to keep your attention fixed on something.

On the bright side, you won't have to mow that patch of grass after dumping a gallon or two of gasoline on it.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Really? Martina Hingis, who||
Really? Martina Hingis, who is way less athletic than those ladies, had a 6-7 record against Serena. So you think that those ladies, who are better tennis players and more athletic than Martina Hingis, would be "killed" by Serena? I beg to differ.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Women's tennis was way more||
Women's tennis was way more competitive than men's tennis within the last decade. It goes in cycles. When Navratilova and Evert were battling, women's tennis was arguably more exciting than men's tennis. The late 90's and early 00's were great years to watch women's tennis. You could watch great tennis from someon as old as Steffi Graff and as young as Martina Hingis.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Total Singles||
Total Singles Titles
Chris Evert - 157
Steffi Graff - 107
Serena - 71
She's way behind those three in winning percentag as well. They're all behind Margaret Court, but that's a different story.
No one will ever get close to Navratilova's title record. It's just completely out of reach for the forseeable future. Her record of 18 wins over a #1 is probably going to stand as well. Serena is at 16, and I don't see her sticking around long if/when she loses the #1 ranking.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||She might well be the||
She might well be the greatest female athlete, but she isn't even objectively the greatest female tennis player.
She is in 5th place all time in singles titles, with less than half of Navratilova's record of 167.
She is in 11th place all time in total title, over 250 behind Navratilova's record of 354.
She is in 5th place all time in winning percentage, having played considerably fewer matches than the 4 women abover her.
But she is way more athletic than any of the women I would point to as being better tennis players, which is why she is so comparable to them, because her athleticism plays right into her strengths as a tennis player.

You're kidding, right? Do you not know that sports other than football and basketball get scholarships?
Michigan tennis is bringing in two top-100 recruits in this class.

The 96 Trans Am WS6 commercials are still my favorites.

June 8: Paramus, NJ- Paramus Catholic
You know Harbaugh loves good defense, so I simply don't see the connection.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Remember when the B1G wasn't||
Remember when the B1G wasn't allowed to have a championship game because they didn't have 12 teams? I miss those days.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Did I miss Jim being fired, and John being hired?||
"The scheduling gods gifted Harbaugh four straight non-conference noon home games against teams located across the West to start his tenure at Michigan"
I know you spend a lot of time covering the basketball team, but shouldn't you be aware that Harbaugh coached the football team last year?
|18 weeks 5 hours ago||Can I be your editor?||
I'm not kidding. You don't have to pay me. You don't have to add me to the masthead. I won't complain about the content of your posts, but I'll stop stuff like this from happening.
"The current state of hockey is too close to baseball, which is dumbly random, because the goalies can cover up big differences in"
What is it that goalies can cover up? We're dying to know!!

They aren't team-specific tickets, so it wouldn't have anything to do with Michigan making the finals.

If Robinson is realy 6'8", isn't he the stretch 4 Beilein has been looking for?
