Beck seems like a much better option than Frost. I don't really understand what is so good about Frost, as Oregon's offense started very good and roughly stayed that way. Even GERG managed to not ruin Texas's defense the one year he was there.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Well, duh on results vs||
Well, duh on results vs recruiting. The information is easy to get and it's probably better than nothing, because stars are correlated with performance even though correlations aren't perfect and I'm tired of people having to explain this.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Meh. I'd prefer that Hoke||
Meh. I'd prefer that Hoke got suspended for 1-2 games to show that we don't screw around with concussions. I think that I would demand that of a rival's coach that did the same thing, unintentional or not. i don't feel like rooting for Michigan this game, and I stuck through '08, '09, '10, '13, and various other seasons.
There should at least be fierce competition at the game about whose athletic director sucks more. We should win that easily, because This Is Michigan.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||And if we had done things the||
And if we had done things the same way at 5-0? I brooded and I would have supported a 1-2 game suspension for Hoke. While this issue may be symptomatic, it's not really the end of the world and wouldn't merit a firing (unlike what I thought on Saturday).
Now, to be fair, I saw plenty of comments from fans of other schools (including some that would presumably want Hoke around for practical reasons) that Hoke should be fired for what he did on Saturday. I'm not sure that I see nearly as many of those when it appears that Hoke was painfully ignorant rather than throwing out Shane as a sacrificial lamb/to make a point/TOUGHNESS.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I have no idea what the OP is||
I have no idea what the OP is talking about after reading the post. How this offense looks promising is beyond me. The one checkmark reached with the offense is that the OL is more of a line rather than two points and nothingness.
Devin just seems lost.
I can't believe Nussmeier is being talked up by some people here as an interim coach. Nussmeier inherited a record-setting quarterback (single game) and managed to get lots of regression and the first shutout in 30some years. Sure, Devin isn't as good as that one game, but he isn't as bad as this.

Burn it and you make water (along with CO2 and some other stuff); it's not that hard. Turning it into useful fuel with high yield would be impressive.
What's wrong with fertilizer as an option here? Making fertilizer is often going to be from natural gas, which is already useful for other reasons.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Family matter was a lie in||
Family matter was a lie in that it should only cover subjects that mainly affect Brendan Gibbons and his family. If it's just "a matter that his family would care about", then that covers everything that affects Brendan Gibbons, which would only make the statement true in politician land. I don't understand the need to rationalize Hoke's statement because he was only lying to reporters, or something. Say that he was wrong and move on rather than try to torture words into fitting a more benign interpretation.
Seriously, some of the comments here state that it's good that Hoke lied because it got reporters to not ask more questions. That is stupid.

Colbert's actually funny, unlike Jimmy Fallon, so it's a good step for late night. The fraction of talk in those talk shows is just too high without amazing guests however. The half hour format gives a much smaller fraction of banal conversation.
I'm still surprised to see this happen just because late night does not seem like a meritocracy.

Actually, there's very likely a negative correlation between watching porn and prostate cancer, as regular ejaculation has been shown to reduce the likelihood of developing prostate cancer. I'm not kidding.

Hardly a hidden diamond in the rough, but Dexter is certainly worth watching if you have a lot of time. If you like the show, I've found it's sometimes easier to pause in the middle of an episode rather than deal with the cliffhanger they sometimes throw in at the end of an episode.

Wow... I was sure this was a clickbait title. Nice find. How do you summarize the career of someone who was responsible for some of the best and worst offensive days at Michigan?
That does make me wonder if perhaps DB is taking a heavier hand on the reins.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||Well said? I realize that||
Well said? I realize that you could agree with him (although you shouldn't), but that post was clearly not "well said".
Also, Michigan is supposed to be the one that competes with Ohio for recruits in Ohio.
|44 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, sucks for them.||
Yeah, sucks for them. Beating Oregon by five scores is not what Lloyd Carr would have done.
I'm not really trying to cause trouble, just pointing out the relatively obvious retort.
|44 weeks 4 days ago||As much as I'm sure we want||
As much as I'm sure we want to find ways to be offended, RR was pleased that the basketball team honored him and didn't say a thing negative about Michigan in the article. Arizona can be mildly obnoxious if they want, but I don't think that it reflects badly on RR.
Thus, who cares?

I'm definitely in favor of keeping the blog classy. I do feel like you're dodging the key question though: will we eventually get OSU and even Iowa UFRs over the next few weeks?
Also, people will probably mind moody posts less if you put a disclaimer at the top of the post stating that you're unusually outraged or numb about something. A little warning goes a long way.

The line of scrimmage bit made me laugh while also making me feel sad, which takes some skill to pull off. Thank you for that.
|50 weeks 2 days ago||I think we should have won||
I think we should have won TUS. Northwestern's loss was a dagger to the heart continuing a series of losses while our loss was a Robocop-esque annihilation that cost us the division, most of our superiority complex, and any optimism about our offense. (I'm referring to what happened to Alex Murphy.)

So... they did what half the people on this blog have been doing since the Penn State game?

Frankly, Will Ferrell is unimpressive in any starring role except for Talladega Nights (which actually deserves the praise that Anchorman gets). He's best as an unhinged side character. I was unimpressed by the smoking crack (spoiler!) in the trailer... hopefully the gags will be better on average in the actual movie.

When did a current Michigan player become off topic? Stop misusing tags.

I definitely agree. The "Urban Meyer connection" is a red herring to generate more pageviews and incite the masses. It's a bit depressing to see people gloat over this just because the coach of our biggest rival was mentioned in a negative light.

Surprisingly, Pat Forde does not make it on my list of 25 best sports writers. He did however place above #12 on my list of most annoying sports personalities.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Bullshit right back to you||
A job gives you a salary. Losing money over time while being in college and having a 40 hour/week activity on top of classes is not the same thing. You sound like survival is a privilege, but I bet you'd be throwing a hissy fit if you even got paid only as much as an English teacher. The fact is, your education has less value the more time you have to spend paying for it, because you have less time to study and pump up your GPA.
Feel free to never ask for a raise or try to improve your life (even though you are), but don't complain when others do.

I find it interesting that New York got bailed out by the federal government in the 70s, yet I haven't heard a thing about federal assistance for Detroit. I'm not saying Detroit deserves federal assistance to pay their debts, but it is a sign of different times...
Interesting how over a million people left New York before they got their bailout and the city was widely regarded as being in decline. It's a shame that they never ever recovered.
