Very enjoyable. Got me pumped up for the work day. Can't wait! Great work!

I think it's a joke now at this point.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I think it makes perfect||
I think it makes perfect sense. Running a route perfectly doesn't necessarily mean creating separation. The DBs got lost and the receiver was open. Sure you've got to run a good route, but you're not necessarily separating yourself from the defender on your own ability. The way I took it to mean is that the defender is covering the receiver pretty well, at that point the receiver must do something to create space. That's what I assumed they were referring to, but I could be wrong.

They said DO catch contested balls.
Then they said offensive playcalling is what was responsible for most of the open catches they showed.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Perhaps unpopular opinion||
Perhaps unpopular opinion around these parts, but I feel B/R has stepped up their level of reporting a bit. Whether or not it's worthy of any other reaction than "ewwww" is TBD I suppose.
Win total projections were: 11-1, 11-1, 10-2, 11-1

We aren't even worthy of Nike until we beat OSU & MSU. Roll it back.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I would say there is a||
I would say there is a correlation. MSU's last period of this much success was what, in the 1960s? That also coincided with a downturn at Michigan.
I don't know whether there is a causal relationship there, but it would make sense if we start suffocating them for recruits and whatnot that they would backslide.

I wonder if it was sleep apnea or a heart condition? Tragic. RIP Zach.

I purchased and did not have to go through PayPal to receive the 20% off.
Also just FYI since this comment is higher, I tried several coupons and none appeared to stack. The 20% off ended up being the best offer.

He's 50-4 at Ohio State. He's undefeated against conference opponents that aren't Michigan State (31-1). They get the benefit of the doubt, as much as it sucks.

Co-signed. I like helmet stickers but they would look better a bit smaller I think.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I would prefer to watch it||
I would prefer to watch it with a small group (max of 6 I would say) buddies who are equally interested in the game, don't talk much during, etc. Not really keen on being around casual fans or a large party atmosphere.
Exception is the away OSU games. Parents usually throw a party for it but me and my dad and uncles, etc. are all serious M fans so we sit in one room in (mostly) silence intently watching the game and everyone else is in another part of the house.
The bar always sounds like a good idea to me, but it's loud, service is slow, sharing the bathroom with others, and if things aren't going well I tend to get a bit sulky.

I used Blue Apron. My account is currently suspended (my choice) because I am traveling a lot through August so I won't really have the time to cook.

These uniforms are great. That satin finish on those helmets. Wow.

I love the white pants. Really emphasizes the helmet.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed. An OSU fan bet me||
Agreed. An OSU fan bet me they had way more success than Michigan the last 35 years. I was undeterred, after all prior to the mid 2000s we owned them right? Wrong. They have many, many, many 11+ win seasons while we were middling around 9 win seasons. It was a depressing exercise.

Love the matte helmet. Also love the all white road unis, really emphasizes the helmet.
Ed: Upon further inspection it looks like it's just a subdued gloss? Like not the matte of the Outback bowl. It's a bit difficult to tell in the odd lighting.

Going to college football games, casual video gamer, going to the movies, taking b school classes, tinkering with programming, reddit, politically active (Michigan's primary is today, go vote), Tigers games, camping (but not too seriously), hiking, kayaking, lying on the beach, running / cardio

Just leased a 2016 Malibu yesterday. I love it!

The HAIL dri fit T-shirt. Started there to get through the first warm games. Have my eyes on a new polo for work on Fridays as well as a new jacket for the cooler games.

Last year the preseason AP poll came out August 23rd, coaches on July 30th.
The AP has said it will release its preseason poll Aug 21 of this year.

Would rather jumpman be on the sleeve, but overall I like it.

I usually just go around the streets to the west of the stadium. There are neighborhoods where street parking is free so I always park on the road there then take in the beautiful walk to our tailgate destination.

Flight and hotel booked! Can't wait! Have never been to the east coast (except DC).

Since 2011, when they took it up, it's been wrong every year.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||A loser's mentality, IMO.||
A loser's mentality, IMO. Expectations are not low for winning programs, like Ohio State, like Alabama. We just need to learn how to handle being in the spotlight and adjust to the higher expectations.
If we have low expectations year in and year out, we probably aren't getting it done on the field. I don't think any of us here want that.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Very good. I took up running||
Very good. I took up running in May and combined with paying more attention to my diet I'm down 30 lbs since January. From 215 to 185 now. Would like to drop about another 15 total.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Talking shit about a rival||
Talking shit about a rival when you're 1-7 in the last 8 years against one, and 1-11 in the past 12 against the other just seems silly. Obviously I hate them both, but it's less satisfying when the results aren't in your favor.
