I'm still laughing.
|1 week 5 days ago||Rubber Bowl in Akron||
Basically poured concrete into a hillside. No real accessible concessions, no game day atmosphere. Terrible football.
|1 week 5 days ago||If I weren't from Minneapolis||
This would be my answer. However, it was my first sporting event I can remember attending watching a Twins game there with my Dad (he took me out of Kindergarten to go to a weekend day game). The sentimental value alone takes it off this list for me.
|1 week 5 days ago||Not to be that guy||
But the Tigers won that game. It was Game 1 when Sanchez and the bullpen nearly threw a no hitter. It was the next night, game 2, that most want to forget.

Cobb is a senior. Williams is a RS Soph reportedly on the fence.

Hyperbole, or best day in UM athletics since beating Syracuse in the FF 20 months ago?
|30 weeks 6 days ago||I think it's a reference to a re-tweet||
The fact that UM football has been tweeting out birthday messages to former players ever since the Harbaugh tweet. I imagine Brian is opining that an intern is being tasked with those messages...
|33 weeks 5 days ago||Minnesota v Mizzou in Citrus||
Not confirmed, but trending. First NYD Bowl for the Gophers since 1962. That's a big deal for them.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Minnesota||
Next week may be the biggest football game for the Gophers in nearly 50 years. Hopefully they can beat Wisconsin because their fanbase has sure earned it.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||B1G!||
Gophers have it 4th and 1 going into the wind with 10 seconds left in the first quarter on the Iowa 45...and they punt. No wonder they lost to Illinois.

This may have been covered in past threads, but I can't help but think as long as Brandon is AD, Hoke will get at least 5 years. The main differences between this coaching staff and the last coaching staff is that Brandon inherited RR, while he personally interviewed and made the decision to hire Hoke. That goes a long way. To fire Hoke before the traditional 5 years expires amounts to an implied admission of making a wrong decision - something I am not so sure Brandon is willing to make yet. In my opinion, the only way Hoke does not get a fifth year is if Schlissel ousts Brandon, which likely won't happen. All this talk about a win threshold this year for Hoke seems to miss that point.

Isn't their number 1 pick point guard projected to leave their team next year?

But isn't this the third game between Beilein and Boeheim with Beilein at Michigan? I seem to remember a preseason tournament game in Atlantic City a few years ago.

You have to be kidding me.

The Gophers are my second favorite school (my Dad is an alum), but even I am underwhelmed by their constant string of mediocrity.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Hmmmmm||
What were the 4 out of 6 Michigan wins before this year?

|1 year 21 weeks ago||Dookies would throw a fit||
They'd argue that they should be seeded higher than us due to the head to head. I'd counter that game was in Cameron, and non-con wins are weighted too much (Michigan and Duke are different teams now - hard to figure if result would be same).
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Spectacular Effort||
One of the more enjoyable regular season games I can remember - everything worked in perfect rhythm.
Maybe, just maybe, this will quiet the "yeah, but" crowd concerning Beilein. For far too long they have cited the maxim that Michigan gets lucky because they rely on the three pointer - which allegedly makes them too vulnerable. They refuse to acknowledge that Beilein recruits solid shooters, and finds ways to get them open to the point where there is no luck involved. In fact, I would argue that when Michigan has an offnight shooting, it's luck for the other team.
Go Blue! Big Ten Champs!

Because it's the only game the world remembers on a consistent basis.

Watch him score 5 in his first game back - on penalty shots.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Patrick Kane||
How is it he can find ways to continue to annoy me, even when I am rooting for his team?
|1 year 22 weeks ago||That's the thing||
I don't think there was any skill reason why Canada won today. The US had a horrible game plan that played right into Canada's quasi-neutral zone trap plan (like the mid-90s New Jersey teams that made the NHL unwatchable). The US should have pressed the forecheck in the second half of the game - even if it meant giving up 2 on 1 or 3 on 2 opportunities. At least they would have lost swinging.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||It was clear that was not working||
After a certain amount of time, the benefit of taking chances carrying the puck in with the skilled forwards a few times outweighed the costs of a 2-1 break the other way.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Dump and Chase in the Worst||
I was hoping that with the bigger ice that the dump and chase game was over - it essentially makes the game Wisconsin basketball on ice. Unfortunately, it seemed to be all the US did, and Canada was more than happy to let it happen.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Should be 2-0||
Refs missed the offside on the Slovakian goal. Still, it's nice to see the answer so quickly after a bad goal given up.

I agree that the page click concept for newspapers triggers a lot of these trolling columns, but the pages still have ads on them. If donors pull their advertisements, there would be no ads on the pages that generate clicks, which makes the pages non-existent.

Oh well. On to 2014. Go Blue!
