"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Ah, yes. I was wondering the exact same thing at the time. It is a weird enough rule in the NFL but I had never heard of it being applied at the college level. I agree with you though, that it is the only possible explanation.

It certainly gives some perspective to see Morris experience one game's worth of what DG has been going through for two seasons.

I may have had a nap or two during vizualization.

Quote of the day: "It is not a game for well-adjusted men". Nice!

Just curious why someone would neg this?

It's all good, really. I was just noting that I do not like his hair. This is really important, obviously. This spares me from feeling bad about this if he ended up at Michigan. I am certain with Crean's influence, it will look even worse (I mean, look at the guy!). At least I only have to look at it like 2-3 times a year!

It seems a wee bit dramatic but still worth watching.

While it is the stereotype, we don't all fit that. But I agree most women would love something like this. I guess it depends on whether one likes a lot of attention or prefers more privacy. It sounds terrifying to me, personally.

I'm very impressed with your work and determination here. I imagine soon he will reveal all regarding bubble screens.

I hope his man parts are OK! That's what you call taking one for the team.

It's actually the Iron Lotus. The only reason I know is that I literally saw that movie for the first time a couple of days go. I bet they killed that move.

I haven't gotten mine yet but now maybe I will at least look at the mag before throwing it into the recycle pile.

I live here in Bloomington but alas, my foolish decision to start nursing school has left me with neither spare dollars nor time for attendance. Yet I somehow find time for this blog. Go figure.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||hurray!||
Thanks for the update! Can't wait to see how everything is going. I proudly wore my shirt today, and intend to keep doing so. :)

This post makes me happy. Also, I thank you for the well-written, informative title.

I think it goes without saying that the kid is adorable.

Sad to see fun Taylor replaced by Mr. Serious.

Those would also be my guesses. I probably would not have thought of Vincent Smith, but listening to the way his teammates talk about him makes it seem like a realistic possibility with it being a team vote and all.

My first thought upon viewing the big maize strip was that they are insidiously inching closer to all maize. Maybe the powers that be thought we'd never notice (not that they would care though)? That combined with the gloves gave me a shudder as I was suddenly reminded of some trends found in the BHGP B1G/Pro Combat line.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||awkward||
Yeah, there is something just horribly awkward about it, particularly from the back. Maybe my femaleness is making me notice it, but it really makes his ass look huge. Perhaps it is the virtual model making it look weird. But it really has that "mom jean" look from the back. New trend, perhaps? Also, that huge maize strip looks like trying to edge closer and closer to a full out maize design. Make it stop!

+1 for the use of Herbstreit (though spelled different) as a verb there. The usage is surely appropriate.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||not overreacting||
I'm thinking 5 games in 13 days might have something to do with it. If it was a team full of upperclassmen it might not have been an issue. I've been wondering if Burke would hit the schedule-induced wall at some point, especially with all the minutes he's been playing. After the OT win Wednesday night, my first thought was "they're going to have a tough time at Iowa" with about 2 days, one of those traveling. To me everyone just looked fatigued, slow, lost, out of sync, etc. This is why the B1G is tough. Not the end of the world though, as tough as that was to watch. Looks like growing pains. They'll get used to it and get better.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||not money only||
It wasn't just about money though. According to Bacon's book none of RRs assistance at M had contracts. Casteel staying at WVU offered him more money, job security in the form of a 2 year contract, and allowed him to keep his family in WV where they were comfortable. All of this happened due to the fact that WVU decided to hire Bill Stewart from RRs previous staff.
So, yes M definitely needed to start forking over more cash for assistants but some contracts would have helped.
|2 years 50 weeks ago||Love this.||
I had serious abdominal fatigue from laughing so hard. Too bad they didn't have a few more or the whole team for that matter.
Kovacs reminds me of the little kid in Christmas Story in the pink bunny suit. So awesome.

Last week the Michigan Insider guys hit this pretty hard. They played clips of Borges from, I believe, the coach's radio show in which he completely owns that play call. The podcasts from 10/20 include several segments where they replay some of his comments. Among other things, he acknowledged that as being not the right call for that particular situation and fully took responsibilty, which was kind of amazing to hear. Hope this helps!
