Oh, man. Reading the comments is like hearing people rave about how excited they are to go on the Titanic's maiden voyage.
I think we are changed from the experience of the past seven years - a little more wary of blind optimism and suspicious of false promises.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to research CFB playoff tickets on Stubhub.

I think he's done fine there. But to just trot out his record and compare it to Harbaugh's does Harbaugh a disservice. RichRod inherited a toxic locker room at Arizona, but there was some talent there. They had gone to bowls three years running before the 2011 upheaval.
As for pre-Harbaugh Stanford, they went 16-40 in the five years before Harbaugh arrived, with losses to the likes of UC Davis and San Jose State. Their 2006 team failed to rush for 1,000 yards, and barely averaged 10 points per game!

February looks tough. If Minnesota is good, there won't be a breather in the first three weeks.

He was (for a brief time) a member of the Pistons. I vote the thread should be allowed.

Arizona went 8-5, 8-5, and 7-6 from 2008-10. Then in 2011 they had a totally dysfunctional team and Stoops was fired midseason. To compare the state of their program to pre-Harbaugh Stanford is going a bit overboard.

This is amazing.

Surprised at all the Peppers mentions here. He's a bit young for the honor, most likely. It's almost invariably a senior or redshirt junior.

It's normal to have one on each side of the ball. To have only one for the whole team would be a little odd.

They really are run ragged. At some point they've got to get sick of it.

It starts at 16:30 in the BTN2Go clip.

The sport with the most absurdly short offseason has to be soccer. You finish the Champions' League and a month later you're doing some inane promotional tour in Asia or North America - if you haven't already been called up to play internationally in the meantime.

I like good, competitive games when Michigan isn't involved.
When we're playing, I'm fine just demolishing the other team.

Well, it's your team so I imagine you wouldn't be shocked.

And if we'd gone 11-0 in the 2001 regular season, that might have given us a couple more difference-makers in recruiting to help out in the next few years.

Ugh, that offensive PI . . . awful call.

I'm not an expert on these things, but don't even relatively small private jets have comfortable first-class seating?

Let's just face the fact that there is only one human being alive who can stop this turkey's reign of terror:

I never understood how people could follow basketball and deny the hot hand existed. It's not like it takes any huge explanation; in just about any kind of job or performance, people have some days where they're more focused than usual and perform better - and others where their mind is elsewhere and they struggle.

The '92 Purdue game was famous for this:

Great call! I forgot about this music. It reminds me of the Bad Boys playing in the Finals . . . good times.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Great compilation. I agree||
Great compilation. I agree about the 1990s ABC music, and also that the '90s ESPN music (the 2nd version) was probably their best. They've tweaked it a little too much nowadays.

The man misspoke. It happens.

Of course, the legally-defined line of adulthood is arbitrary and was established long ago, before we had evidence from research that one's brain (particularly the frontal lobe, responsible for reflection) isn't close to adult maturity at age 18.

Ferentz will never be gone.
Toughness. Tenacity. Punting. Ferentz is Iowa football.

I think we definitely have a shot. Utah didn't do a lot offensively against us last year. They scored one TD on a punt return and kicked a bunch of long field goals. Our turnovers (we had four) were the big difference in the game.

That would be pretty tricky to apply. What do you do for the students who officially pay their own way, but do so with funds set up by their parents?

What's more, I believe Bo actually invented helmet stickers, when he was at Miami (NTM).
I think they should be a little smaller than this, but I like them. They're a part of college football.
|1 day 16 hours ago||The drinking age was raised||
The drinking age was raised to 21 mainly to combat drunk driving. Given the general absence of mass transit in this country, lowering the drinking age would be a tough political sell.
From what we know from cognitive research, society might actually want to rethink whether 18 really should be the age of majority in general.
|1 day 16 hours ago||I don't know. The drinking||
I don't know. The drinking age is also 16 in the UK and this has not stemmed binge drinking - on the contrary, it's a huge problem there, going beyond the university years.
The United States actually has a relatively modest overall rate of alcohol consumption, compared to other Western countries. The university years are the main period where it spikes up. But even then, American college students' drinking habits aren't all that different from their counterparts abroad.
