There are a lot of UofM alumni that relocated to the West Coast, but the primary reason you should give a crap about the West Coast is that Michigan recruits the west coast. Have you ever heard of Tom Brady? I sure enjoy watching Devin Asiasi play and that Erik Magnuson is quite a player.
I'd argue that the noon EST starts are preferred for west coast viewership (I love rolling out of bed and turning the game on.) Maybe when you grow up a little you'll expand your horizons and not be so provincial.
P.S. Early congrats on the 100K milestone. That's quite an achievement, no sarcasm intended.
|1 hour 48 min ago||watching Braden||
I did the same thing. The game was never in doubt, so why not try to learn something, right? And the most important thing to figure out regarding Michigan's offense is can the Braden/Bredeson combo be a solid pairing? I think they played well enough against an average defense. That's all we have left on the schedule until we travel to Columbus.

I watched some ESPN recap show this weekend and couldn't get over how badly Danny Kanell was dressed. His pants were too skinny and wrinkly and his shoes definitely did not match his suit. Mark May also had some wacky shoelaces that stuck out like a sore thumb.

if you combine their respective facial hair patterns, you'll end up with a full beard.
P.S. they also resemble Tony Mandarich, Roger Clemens, Jason Giambi, and Jose Canseco.
|3 hours 5 min ago||running QBs||
I loved watching Denard run the ball, but there's no debating that the running QBs take a beating during the regular season. I'd rather have a clean, healthy, QB back there zipping darts than a running QB with bruised ribs. But you are right, the ratings are for passing stats only.
|3 hours 7 min ago||Same age, same frame of reference||
The first game I went to was maybe in '76 or '77. I vaguely remember Michigan stomping one of the academies 63-0, or something like that. This team resembles those 70's team except that Jim has added a much better passing game to the total package. He's taken from the best and added to it. It's like Bo taking from Woody and Parseghian. Jim's got the great line play he took from Bo and added creativity to the offense from NFL passing schemes.
|3 hours 13 min ago||i've been on "sabbatical" this year||
I decided to take a year off and just enjoy the games without having to think about "what am I going to write" while the games were going on. It's been such an enjoyable season so far. In the past, I was deathly afraid of the "trap" games on the schedule. Harbaugh doesn't allow the team to fall into the trap. We may still lose a game here or there along the way, but it's not because he doesn't have them ready to play.

OSU's road winning streak had to end. I don't want them to have nice things.

If OSU loses and Nebraska beats them, our path to the big 10 championship is that much easier. We win that and we're in the Playoffs.

Don't forget about that damn goat. I hope Harry Caray is enjoying a cold Budweiser up there in the great press box in the sky.

i don't have time to scroll through for a realistic unclaimed score, so this will have to do
I did see 3 safeties last weekend. that may be influencing this prediction

It's a gradual progression towards our better selves with a few speed bumps along the way.

After years of suffering (not at all, really) without a team in Los Angeles, I find it funny that the NFL finally gave us a team that can't even beat the Lions.

appears to be a poor-man's fab 5 minus Webber. It's worth remembering that the Fab5 finished 3rd in the Big 10 their freshman year and the Fab 5 had a much better supporting cast. I know times are different, but I agree that State has the most variance among the Big10 teams this season. LSU had the consensus POY in Ben Simmons and they missed the tournament.
|5 days 32 min ago||Rebounding||
seems like every year Izzo puts a team out there that outrebounds the opposition by 10 boards per game. Comparing projected rotations, it's possible we won't get destroyed on the glass by them this year. Schilling can only do so much until he gets in foul trouble. The question mark for me is can Irvin hold up at the 4 on the boards? Can DJ get some quality minutes there? If so, I like our bench a lot better than theirs.

I think you are thinking of Princeton. It's an understandable mistake to make as the academics are similar.
|6 days 1 hour ago||Mike Gundy is a man!||
He's 49! The countdown to the epic, "I'm a man! I'm 50!" rant begins now.
I knew he was older than me because I remember looking forward to making that rant when I turned 40. I emailed the rant to my brother when I turned 40 and he had no idea what I was talking about.
I place that rant side-by-side Allan Iverson's, "we talkin' bout practice" rant and Jim Mora's, "PLAYOFFS?!?" rant.
|6 days 1 hour ago||MSU||
MSU was my backup school. Fortunately, I was accepted by UofM before I had to submit my MSU application. I had the MSU application all filled out and ready to go. When the UofM acceptance letter arrived, I happily tossed the MSU application in the trash.

Care to share some details about that meeting? Is he as curmudgeonly in person as he appears to be on TV?
|1 week 1 hour ago||Brian Kelly||
The amazing thing about the latest ND loss is that Kelly went with Zaire for a large portion of the 2nd half. With about four minutes left and the Irish having their last chance at tying the score, he went back to DeShone. This late into the season, Kelly is clueless about who is the best option at QB. The same could be said of D'antoni in EL. If Connor O'Tyler had played that whole game, maybe sparty wins.
I've been a Brock Spack fan ever since I discovered that Brock Spack exists. What a glorious name. It's Ditka-esque.
