This statement really doesn't say anything other than "OK I heard you already. For the love of God please stop sending me emails!"

Mike Leach would have come back to win.

As my username suggests, I live in Lubbock and was a grad student at Tech during the final Leach years. DO. WANT.

And I will most certainly drive to the Permian basin for Oberon or Bell's on tap.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||27, class of '09||
Back in my day, I walked 15 miles to my classes through 8 feet of snow. While being chased by a rabid polar bear. And by golly, I made it to every one 10 minutes early. Damned kids are so pampered these days.

Just started watching and I am really struggling not to go on an all-out binge.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Yeah.||
I mean, I didn't like Joe D's decision to pass on Burke, but this team is a train wreck regardless of whether Jennings is running the point or not. Watching Josh Smith shoot threes is like watching a 2013 Michigan tailback pick up a 3rd and short.
What? Too soon?
|1 year 7 weeks ago||So...||
does this mean we gon' be SEC?
|1 year 7 weeks ago||But...||
what about decided schematic advantage?
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Decided. Schematic. Advantage.||
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Never change, Fran.||
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Man.||
Twitter is on fire today, you guys.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||I didn't...||
but it's a good move. I wouldn't mind a road trip to Tempe.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Guns up!||
Trust me when I say though, that TTU is currently conjuring up a way to lose this game as we speak. So, so far from being a done deal.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||My goodness.||
|1 year 9 weeks ago||And not just Texas...||
...but way out in the middle of the high plains of West Texas. Good luck to you in your quest for BWB. For what it's worth, this magical experience is worth the 2 or 3 hour drive to Grand Rapids if you do not succeed. The clock is ticking and I'm sure it won't last much longer.
Merry Christmas, and cheers!

Today, I went to my local beer store in Lubbock, TX in search of a few christmas brews. On a whim, I asked if they had ever gotten Founder's Backwoods Bastard in the past. The outstanding associate said that they had, and went in the back and found the last one they had in stock. Thank you sweet baby Santa Jesus for making this the best possible away-from-home Christmas evar.

I think Gary Pinkel should been in the discussion as well. Mizzou and Auburn were similar last season, but Auburn was a hair worse and went one game farther than Mizzou did this season, so kudos to him.

My heart rate reached a level that I don't care to admit.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Just got out.||
I really liked it. Smaug was incredibly well done from the voice to the CGI.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Welp.||
Then we just disagree completely. I have a hard time evisioning Michigan as a favorite against any of those teams except maaaybe South Carolina. Honestly, there might be 4 or 5 teams at best in the top 25 that we would be favored over on a neutral field... and to me thats a stretch.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Yeah.||
It would require either Hatch coming in as an immediate medical hardship, or possibly the coaches giving Horford the firm handshake... the latter of which seems unlikely unless Horford wants out. Or, like you said, someone unexpected leaves the programs.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Disagree.||
Do you honestly believe that Michigan is one of the ten best teams in the country? I certainly haven't seen it.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Bummer.||
That really sucks. But, maybe the Lions can put Steve Breaston to work. Or maybe Braylon?
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Really?||
I kinda thought their QB looked pretty good. Their defense is suspect but they've come a long way from Kill's first season.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||My God.||
Suh with a classic stupid penalty... followed by a pick. Why am I watching this again?
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Boilerquest?||
Or does their dominating victory over mighty Indiana State automatically disqualify them?
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Yeesh.||
That is certainly something. I still think that they will beat a few teams this season because of their defense alone... but my original 9-3 prediction is lookin pretty dumb right about now.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Purdue.||
Holy hell they are bad. I would put Iowa in just barely above that... with Indiana/Minnesota duking it out as the token "mostly bad team but will probably upset a team they shouldn't" team. Illinois might actually not be a complete tire fire, and MSU's defense alone will keep them hanging around most games they play.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||I hate to be a Debby Downer...||
but I'm about to be a Debby Downer. We have got to find a way to spread the ball around better...because sooner or later some team is going to figure out how to lock Gallon down. Funchess/Dileo/Chesson need to be more involved down the road... besides just blocking for Gallon downfield.
