I can't remember where (I think ESPN blog) but one of the "bold predictions" for the Big Ten season was that Minnesota beats us to get the jug back. Boo to that.

Obviously meant against South Carolina...

Kenny Hill threw for 511 yards for South Carolina. Christ.

I am of the feeling it was a longshot, is that the consensus? Quick, someone tell me how upset I should be!

I think we score first on a DG scramble.
|3 days 15 hours ago||I think you make a lot of||
I think you make a lot of assumptions about Dave Brandon. He himself has stated that his goal is to create compelling matchups, and this certainly fits the bill. It thrusts a snoozer of a game against a cupcake into the national spotlight. People will be talking about Michigan when ordinarily, for the first week, they are not.
Would I have rather played someone else? Sure, I think most of us would have, but we only get 13-15 weeks of college football a year, I'm personally going to watch and savor as much of it as possible.
|3 days 18 hours ago||When it is no longer||
When it is no longer pertinent.
You can't write a blog post about how we got here without talking about Rich Rod.
|1 week 10 hours ago||We are the only team to beat||
We are the only team to beat Nebraska in their arena last year.
|1 week 15 hours ago||This is an important||
This is an important statement I think (re: the scrimmage and OLine panic fallout). Mattison was blitzing the hell out of them because they were practicing, and needed reps on the stuff they need to work on.
|1 week 21 hours ago||No, no. I think you should||
No, no. I think you should stick around for a while.
|1 week 21 hours ago||OSU's schedule is a cakewalk,||
OSU's schedule is a cakewalk, outside of the MSU game. They are probably 9-3 with an infant at QB.
|1 week 1 day ago||MLB ticker said "Unknown||
MLB ticker said "Unknown medical issue". So unfortunate at such a young age.
|1 week 1 day ago||Agreed that we have a tough||
Agreed that we have a tough road schedule, but recent events (ND suspensions, Braxton Miller out for season) swing things a bit more in our favor I think.
|1 week 1 day ago||And yet DG set the||
And yet DG set the single-game offensive record last year behind that offensive line. And we have a new OC. And we've won @NW twice under Hoke already.
|1 week 1 day ago||And I just realized that win||
And I just realized that win over Nebraska would've sent us to the B1G title game.
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't think that the 2012||
I don't think that the 2012 season was disappointing per se. We lost to the #1, #2, and #3 teams in the country all away from Ann Arbor and damn near beat a very good SC team. Additionally we lost Denard for the Nebraska game at the point when we were just getting traction.
I could be alone in that opinion, though.

Brock Mealer walking at the opener in 2010 againt UConn.

Their writers are volunteers and don't have to have any knowledge. I know this because I was a contributor for them for a few months back when I was in school (2008-2009ish) and ended up leaving because I didn't like how they operated.
|1 week 4 days ago||Would be #37 if you extend||
Would be #37 if you extend the rankings that far. Seems appropriate, just have to go out and win.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||And even if we take the OL as||
And even if we take the OL as our glaring weakness, let's hope Nussmeier's playcalling and general approach mitigates that weakness -- something that Borges was either unwilling or unable to do.

Why are there stripes on everything?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I don't care for the stripes||
I don't care for the stripes on the numbers much, but overall it's good. I do like the all blue look.

I'm not generally a part of the "get off my lawn", anti-uniformz crowd, but holy fuck those are bad.

$150 / month. This is for their 50mbs internet*, HBO/Stars/Cinemax, and a bunch of channels I don't watch haha.
My lease only permits me to use Comcast though so I don't have a choice.
*I've never once gotten 50 mbs speed and after asking a rep about it they confessed that was the 'max speed' and basically they could do anything from < 1 to 50.
|4 weeks 14 hours ago||Seems like a good trade,||
Seems like a good trade, though I did like both Jackson and Smyly. Radio reports said Jackson was pulled from the game a bit ago.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Well would you rather him say||
Well would you rather him say we have low expectations? I mean, I understand where you're coming from -- we're all frustrated by the past few years -- but I don't think you can do well without first saying and thinking that you can.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Not necessarily a bad thing.||
Not necessarily a bad thing. As rent and cost creeps up downtown, people will relocate a bit further outside (cheaper) which will then contribute to the development of those neighborhoods and have a cascading effect outward.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||There's no way this isn't||
There's no way this isn't good for the city. Joe Louis is hopelessly outdated, and that's a prime location for different development when they tear it down.

I can, at this time, buy a pretty nice HD TV that will last me for years for the $1150 it costs for two season tickets. Unfortunately I had to surrender my two tickets this year because I could no longer justify the price for the experience (and quality of games, which are atrocious and have been discussed ad nauseum here). I still plan on making a couple games though.
The advantages to televsion are numerous -- you're not cramped like sardines, your own beer, your own bathroom, comfortable seating, great camera angles, replays, shelter from the weather, watch other games simultaneously, cheap food, no parking, etc.
I love going to games at the Big House, but honestly at $75 a pop per person per game, watching from home is enticing.

Not much to say, just silent consideration and a bit of reflection. A terrible tragedy.
