I have always said that backup QB is the best job in the league. If you get through the summer with no concussions, you will pretty much be healthy. You get paid at least a million a year to practice with a jersey that says you can't be tackled.
Great work if you can get it...

Kurpit: you need to know something about national atttention.
National attention = better recruiting = more wins = more national attention, etc...

I think they will hammer Ole Miss. Ole Miss isn't "ole money." They aren't a national cash cow like Bama. Ole Miss will get hammered so the NCAA can puff out their chests and brag about how "tough" they are on cheaters.
Most of all, whenever anyone asks about Bama or OSU, the NCAA can say "Ole Miss" and continue to look the other way.

There is no way Tebow is going to even hit a AAA cureveball. It just isn't happening. He would be a good gate attraction for a lower level team, though.

Please tell me it was a Viking funeral...
|5 days 18 hours ago||To be fair||
To be fair, Michigan has beaten Sparty 68 times and OSU 58 times and leads both in their all time series.

"I can't believe he's bounced around so much"
It's a matter of journalistic integrity. He has it. His bosses usually don't.

Maybe he attacked professional wrestling with EUTM during some of his off-time.
|1 week 3 days ago||Strike One||
It's his first "strike" while at Nebraska.

There is no way the committee is going to let two teams from a conference not named the SEC into the playoffs.
|1 week 6 days ago||This could get interesting||
I would start looking for an edible hat just in case...
|1 week 6 days ago||Reminders||
Sadly, Sparty fans will be remiding us of the Sparty Fluke forever. The ESPN/ABC will play it a lot as their lead-in for the next ten years, like they did the Colorado play. For that matter, I'm sure we'll see the Colorado play again this year, as if it's the least bit relevant to this year's teams.
|1 week 6 days ago||Funny||
On the occasion when I encounter a UT fan who is stilll pissed about "Peyton Manning's Heisman" residing with Charles Woodson, I like to remind them that if Manning was worthy of the Heisman, UT woulnd't have shit the bed against Nebraska and given Nebraska half of the National Champinoship.

"Their taxi was stopped by individuals posing as armed police officers..."
I would be willing to bet it was real police officers. It sorta goes with the territory.

He rated his visit a "10" but said everyone recruiting him is "equal" right now and he doesn't know if he will be making a return visit for a football game. I'm not really seeing a lot of interest here yet.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Words?||
Sparty has words. Big words. Great words. The best words. And they are going to make college football great again.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I agree||
I agree with Angelique. I want to go with 16-0 Whooo Hooo National Champs, but I see it the same way: a victory over Sparty, one loss to a quality BT West team and a close loss to OSU.
i would be fine with that. If Sparty gets put back in their place and the incrememnt between OSU and Michigan shrinks, next year at home will be the time for Michigan to get back on track against OSU.
That being said, I will be screaming for Michigan to win every game this year. I hope I am wrong and they go undefeated. And a surprise "year too early" road victory over OSU would be the best thing that's happened to the team in a long time.

I can't wait for football season to begin...
|2 weeks 4 days ago||May I amend that for you?||
How about "Yes, you are a bad American and YOU SUCK..."
I will be rooting against Coach K the minute he starts coaching Duke again, but when he coaches the US team, he can do no wrong in my eyes.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Good call||
Wiscy does "travel" great, especially to Michigan. When the hockey team lost to Wiscy in the NCAA finals at Olympia in 1977, there were more Wiscy fans there than Michigan fans. I know it's "apples and oranges," but they certainly travel well.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||They could change their rules||
Whenever anyone at Ohio State divulges violations, someone from the "Sacred Brotherhood" calls them and reminds them that being alive is fluid and could change in an instant. Then they recant their stories before they can meet with the NCAA for an "official deposition."
The NCAA needs to use statements made in interviews as evidence. Instead, they schedule a deposition for a few weeks later, giving the seamier elements plenty of time to influence the "memories" of ex-players.
If they really want to enforce their own rules, they need to be serious about it and change their standards to ensure that witness tampering doesn't work. Or they could just get rid of the 95% of the rulebook that makes it "illegal" for players to rightfully cash in on their extended 15 minutes of fame.
Sadly, they will do neither.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||"Tinfoil hat?"||
MJ's father was killed execution style. It's not a tinfoil hat stretch to infer from the data that he was actually executed. Jordan's gambling investigation by the NBA magically "went away" when he "retired" for two years.
It's not "tinfoil hat" to conclulde that Jordan got in over his head with the wrong people and his dad paid the price. Nor is it "tinfoil hat" to acknowledge the possibilitiy that David Stern, MJ and maybe even Phil Knight brokered a deal behind closed doors.
That's they way business is done. No illuminati, no wide-eyed conspiracy theory, no aleins. Just "good business."
|2 weeks 5 days ago||"Our struggles helped them?"||
Dantonio built his program because so-called "Michigan men" wre telling HS coaches not to send their kids to Michigan. Izzo built his program and his quasi-legend because of the Ed Martin scandal.
If not for Michigan's self-destruction, Izzo would be known as Heathcoate v2 and Dantonio would be a coach who got Sparty to some 9-win seasons but left for a better job because he was tired of taking shit from the 'Sparty faithful."
Michigan self-destruction didn't "help" Sparty; it made them.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||All about the recruits||
As an old Pistons' fan, I hate MJ. But since the kids like his brand and Harbaugh has deemed it worthy, I love the MJ brand. It won't bring big recruits on its own, but not having Nike may have driven away a couple of major recruits in the past.
If it provides Michigan more access to better recruits, I'm all for it. That's all I really need to "get" about the brand.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Sorry||
Sorry, but as dirty as college basketball has become, the most you can expect out of a clean coach is a solid team that usually makes the NCAA's, sometimes gets to the second week and makes a nice run every four or five years.
Does anyone complaining remember just how fucked up it was before Beilein got here?

This is a work of reasonable, professional quality. There is nothing cheesy about it. There really isn't anything for anyone to make fun of if they don't win. He has good rhythm, changes meter enough to keep it interesting and, most of all, has enough taste and tact to not say anything stupid, as young athletes often do in rap videos.
This is not "my genre" at all, but I think this is a solid effort and a positive on his musical resume.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The Curse of the Ford Family||
As long as the Ford Family owns the lions, they will suck. They were and are responsible for what a lot of Lions fans called "50 years of poo" and counting. They had Megatron and Stafford and blew that "window." It sucks being a Lions fan. I stared following sports as a kid one year after the last year they actually won an NFL Championship. Ugh.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Strongly disagree||
"Best teams" is subjective. It's a beauty contest that is dependent upon scheduling. If every Power Five champion was guaranteed a spot, the championships would actually mean something. The best side benefit: a team like Michigan could schedule ND, Texas and Oregon as its three non-conference games with no punitive consequences.
Champions only: if you can't win our conference, you aren't one of the "best." Let the results on the field determine the participants.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Off the topic a bit||
I don't have much off a favorite Michigan mention in media, but in honor of the OP's handle and avatar, here's a Dead show at Hill Auditorium that has showed up on a few "underrated" lists in the Dead community from time to time. On a personal note, it was my first Dead show.

Take them to WWE's "Wrestlers' Court" and sue them for gimmick infringement.
