I've never read anything so incredible.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Two Things||
1) Penn State is up to 19th in adjusted sack rate. The OSU game moved them up 9 spots.
2) Sickels finished with 1 solo tackle, 1 assisted tackle, and 0 sacks against Michigan.

These Ed Muransky stories are pure gold.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I still have a hard time||
I still have a hard time considering Jabrill a linebacker, so he remains a hybrid spacebacker in my mind. That leaves two traditional linebackers: Gedeon and McCray. McCray has been good as well, but I have no doubt that Gedeon has been the better linebacker through 6 games.
And the stats back that up: 5 more solo tackles, 14 more assisted tackles, 3 more tackles for loss, and an extra 1/2 a sack.

Guh, I can hear you mouth breathing from here.

Right. By fair shot I meant that he was receptive to their message.

Steve Lorenz has said for awhile that Michigan will get their fair shot. Hard to disagree with him after reading the interview.

I'm 99% sure you can't give a walk-on a scholarship without releasing a flashy video that publicizes the school and coach

Seconded. He hasn't been mentioned at one of the two ILB spots.

How the hell did you make the comic book effect at the beginning??

No, prep school and junior college are two different things.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Pro Foootball Focus seems to||
Pro Foootball Focus seems to think Jabrill Peppers is pretty talented, naming him to their First Team Big Ten with a grade of +16.1, ahead of second teamer Vonn Bell at +13.4.
That grade is higher than Desmond King (+14.8) and higher than either of their first team safeties.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||The article mentions that||
The article mentions that Meyer and OSU were at a nearby camp, but doesn't mention that Rutgers is at the same camp.
See, that's what you get for calling on your "ally". There's a pecking order here.

Fuck Clay Travis.
Just had to get that out of the way.

So an hour ago...
|35 weeks 1 day ago||Serious Question||
What would happen if Michigan ignored them and still held a camp? Would there be sanctions, etc.?

lol, like the ncaa would try to rationalize a damn thing

The backup plan was totally Dan Mullen. I have no idea if this is actually true, but I'm just going to say it with supreme confidence and figure I'm right.

|47 weeks 6 days ago||Inventory||
Just went through and did a full inventory. It looks like I've got the following:
Ohio State: 1971, 1973, 1975, 1986, 1987, 1991, 1997, 1999
Michigan State: 1968, 1972, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1987, 1988, 1996
Notre Dame: 1978, 1979
Texas A&M: 1970
Penn State: 1996
Iowa: 1986, 1992
Florida State: 1986
Vanderbilt: 1969 (Bo's first game)
1998 Rose Bowl
Media Guides: 1990 (football), 1992 (football), 1993 (football), 1994 (football), 1996 (football), 1998 (football), 2000 (football), 2001 (football), 2002 (football), 1992-1993 (basketball, year 2 of the Fab Five)
Let me know if you would be interested in any of them, although I can't promise anything.
|47 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, it's pretty incredible.||
Yeah, it's pretty incredible. What I listed above is a small fraction of it too. There are lots of Ohio State, Michigan State, Notre Dame and others. Most in great shape, maybe 25-30 in all. And then maybe 7-8 media guides. It's quite the haul.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||I'm not all that impressed||
I'm not all that impressed with Franklin and Penn State, so I can certainly see them beating them. And upsets happen as well. If a coach makes Maryland into a decent team, there's no way they're going 0-12 against the other three over a four year stretch.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Psh, they've got that Under||
Psh, they've got that Under Armour money. They're going to become the Oregon of the east coast, don't you know?
But seriously, Maryland produces some really nice talent and although I was being sarcastic, the Under Armour money is not trivial. They're not going to win the division or anything, but there's no reason they can't be an 8 win team on a consistent basis.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||I think there's a good chance||
I think there's a good chance that Butt sticks around next year, for a couple reasons.
1) He's a pretty one dimensional player right now. He gets average or slightly below average grades for his blocking in UFRs, and I seriously doubt he'd be able to block an NFL defensive end one on one right now.
2) While there's a chance we could still win the division and league, the odds are greater that we'll fall short. And one of the main reasons players come back are to accomplish additional team goals. Cook and Calhoun have said they came back because they lost to OSU and didn't win the Big Ten last year. It could be a similar situation for Butt.
3) He has a good family situation, so he might not feel as much pressure to go to the NFL than some other NCAA athletes.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||To me, the amazing thing||
To me, the amazing thing about Grantland was that I pretty much hated everything Bill Simmons wrote over the last several years. But the guy had an incredible eye for identifying and fostering talent and that was enough to win me over and get me to Grantland 5-10 times a week.

Did anyone else read the intro and think of Brian as the Grinch when the Whos Down in Whoville wake up to see everything is gone and sing their Christmas song anyway?

I have tickets to the tailgate and haven't received this email. Has everyone else seen it? Is this definitely for real?
