His best skill- zone read decision making- doesn't really have a place in the NFL. Straight up freaks (Pryor, Denard) have an easier time.

Yes. But you went from 2/0 to 3/0 and then 2/-1 when I did it.

You forgot that? The 4th quarter of the 2005 game bothers me more than the Horror now.

Is this a posbang thread?
For the non soccer people, JK would be like if you combined Hokes' game management with Brandon's PR skills. It was terrible to watch from multiple perspectives.

First time I think I've ever been more excited for this post than the actual game column! Terrific job, gents.

Watching JK run this team into the ground is about as much fun as watching the last 3 Hoke teams at Michigan.

Clemson is going to win because Pitt missed an extra point in the first half...and will probably still be ranked ahead of us. Because reasons.

More than 50 is impressive; anything in the triple digits is HOF worthy.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||We did it, you guys||
You know that stupid joke about building the whole airplane out of the black box?
"Michigan is #1 in Line yards allowed at 1.8(!) and #1 in power success rate. Teams are converting short yardage on them at a 46% clip. Average is around 67%."
Harbaugh built the whole defense out of Alan Branch.

Shouldn't he retire and do TV? The game has passed him by a little, but he's got a great voice and personality to be a color guy IMO.

There's been some analysis of this, and the best explanation appears to be that crowd noise unconciously biases "judgement calls" by the refs. Two of which, incidentally, in football are holding and pass interference.

I don't know too much about crootin, but anyone who can do shot put AND the 100 meters is one hell of an athlete.

Don't quote me, but I thought just under 40% for MSU and about 30% for The Game.

Harbaugh is playing with a whole lot of trample beasts this year, that's for sure.

I mostly agree, but he's not done yet. This coaching staff is top-notch, and as they teased last week, if they can get an advantage by having a special package for Shane, they will use it. He may yet play a role in wining a big game for M.

Harbaugh should name Wise and/or someone from malesurvivor.org to be honorary captains this week.

Agreed. Would much rather take a few minutes to reflect in peace than be bombarded by the everybody's social media account.

I've been meaning to post a thread like this for a while- so far, I'm finding the Ringer to be a pretty big step down from Grantland. I think it's because the new site is more focused on the now- pop culture and current events. What made Grantland great, IMO, was the stuff that came out of nowhere: Brian Philip's incredible longform work on whatever interested him, Klosterman writing about old music TV shows from Europe, etc. Hopefully Simmons can find some new people to fill that nice.

I haven't listened yet so I don't know if this was covered, but what about us vs. ND in 2006?

We die like vikings in the Playoff semis, but not before smiting all conference foes.
