Losing a guy for the year sucks. Full stop.

I just want to hear Grapetine deadpan one of the names from the roster, "The Dude abides at the Colorado 15 yard line."

I"m not a paint expert but I did shop at a Sherwin Williams last weekend. Definitely more of an eggshell or satin finish as others suggest. Both descriptors you won't see attached to football helmet paint finishes for obvious reasons.

^^ is that how this works?
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Wait just a minute||
I know this blog has gone over the various strata on Sarge Brown's ranking system but have have we overlooked the apparent Highest Order of dudedom? The Certified Dude. You'll notice that Jabrill's introduction as a Dude included #CertifiedDude. To me, that says this guy (as in person, not as in Guy of the Day) is a Dude unless notified otherwise.
Anyway, something for the committee to consider. Carry on.

For all the publicity Infiniti is getting out of this, you'd think Nissan could cough up more than $100k to the winner and $350k overall. Here's to ChadTough bringing in what they can!

But swat kicking in your door executing a search warrant in the middle of the night is legal and certainly scary and obtrusive to neighbors but at the end of the day they're just after you, right? It's an interesting argument to be sure but sometimes I think it being technology-related complicates the question of whether the government is right to ask for it (this specific question).

B is standing in the way of A getting C.

I see this all the time in my line of work where people immediately think of information differently solely because it's sitting on a piece of silicon instead of a piece of paper. If the terrorists had all their evil plans in a notebook somewhere and only Apple knew the location, wouldn't they be compelled to spill it under court order.

Wait until the author figures out we paid Brady Hoke millions of dollars to NOT come to work. Scandalous I tell ya!

I don't think they've ever put outa true stinker. I get the chronology mixed up but I usually put Yield and Vs as my top two. No Code, Pearl Jam, Backspacer...lots of great stuff mixed in there.
Shifting back on topic a bit, I always thought Faithful or Hail, Hail would make for a pretty great hype video.

Vs. was better.

Roederer Estate Brut and a 2007 Regusci Estate Cab. All Cali today I guess. Happy new year and Go Blue!

I've wrapped myself in the idea that down the line we'll look at a stretch of UM/MSU games and say, "One of Sparties' two wins in the last 7 years was on a total fluke. Harbaugh erased the gap in year 1 and has only but rarely given up M's stranglehold on this series."
Yea. That's the ticket.

You serious Clark?
|43 weeks 4 hours ago||can't blame him but||
What was the rush? No reason he couldn't have waited until November 29th to start talks with Maryland.
I have a normal job and when promos or job changes come up it takes significant attention away from your day-to-day. Thats just a bad look heading into the Game. Harbaughs feelings on it will on display next year when the Terps roll into Ann Arbor I suppose.

MSU would have a second loss in that scenario where OSU just has the one-- which is a key distinction between that and what happened in 2011. I got into it with some Sparty friends over that and never understood their argument-- I think any Michigan fan would have traded that Sugar Bowl spot for a shot at the B1G championship and the Rose Bowl.
|43 weeks 1 day ago||Still yes||
OSU's been to the mountaintop so if they stay up there another year nothing much has changed. For MSU to beat us on The Fluke, beat the OSU "hibernating bear, oh crap you stole my honeypot now i must kill everyone" edition, have their loss to Nebraska essentially not count, and now only to face a who-knows-how-good Iowa team for their own shot at the CFP....that just irks man.
So yes, still wish OSU had won.
|43 weeks 4 days ago||well yea||
but we've gone thru 4 coaches! We win!

4-1 on the road with a couple of pretty tough opponents mixed in there signifies a good football team to me. The contrast between THIS and that -- with much the same dudes -- could not be starker.
|44 weeks 6 days ago||Karsch||
Doug Karsch is really laying it out there with the 97.1 vs Lions thing. This is some good listening, I have to say.

Penn State has faced two teams in the top 80 of Bill Connelly's Offensive S&P+ rankings. One is Ohio State who crushed them. The other is Indiana who played without Howard and Sudfeld. Franklin's Penn State team feels a whole lot like either the '12 or '13 Hoke squad.
That said, pass the Tums.
edit: Michigan has faced five teams ranked 63rd or better in that ranking

We can close this thread. Well done.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||What's the saying around here?||
The last thing that happened is surely the next that will happen. The reality is, with this team especially, we haven't yet seen the same issues in losses and near losses. Against Utah it was offensive discombulation and turnovers--wrapping those issues up nicely since then. Against MSU, the passing game was stagnant and unable to open up the run and has improved markedly since. Against Minnesota, Leidner threw balls dipped in unicorn tears all over the secondary, hasn't happened since (or before really). Against Rutgers, well, death. We saw death. Indiana gashed us on the edges with pacing, very high quality OL play and an all-conference level TB against a suddenly retooling UM DL.
Did I just thread jack your thread jack? In short, I AGREE.

Caught WTKA the other morning and Sam Webb was pretty confident that Hill would end up at Michigan.
