"I am insane. I am childish. I once drank an entire bottle of wine while watching Michigan and God's favored child Denard Robinson lose in Ohio Stadium to an undefeated Ohio State team BANNED FROM BOWL COMPETITION FYI JUST WANTED TO MENTION THAT FOR NO REASON."

...for your contrarian cynicism. We need to preserve at least a mating pair of your species in case a larger population is needed on the message boards in two or three years.

...what happens next year. With a few extra points and no injury to Halliday, this year could have been a lot different for Wazzu.

Michigan Football announces $38M apparel contract with Dockers. Limited edition plain front uniforms for November 29th Ohio State game.

Same for Calhoun as last year. And MSU had 10 more as a team this year (42) than last (32). So it's hard to call his year mediocre - he was certainly getting more attention and double teams which opened up defensive opportunities elsewhere.
And I think we would agree the touchdowns he scored last year were lucky, if we can also agree that lucky DEs are those who spend a lot of time hugging quarterbacks...

...which is what most people are referencing, the Beats headphones were designed to compensate for the low end losses that murdered the sound of rap and r&b tracks played off mp3s. Beats cans are somewhat more neutral nowadays, but obviously still have that stigma which irks those who are not Beats' target consumer (Michigan fans are not Beats consumers practically by definition).
If you want cost-effective, high quality over the ear headphones get some Sennheisers/Grados/Audio Technicas. Bose are fine but also seriously overpriced and tailored for older ears. And whatever you do, don't get high fidelity studio monitors - unless you are listening to lossless music everything will sound like it is coming out Grapentine's PA.

JLS and Bobby P were also good for a few laughs.

...really their strength this year? They put up and allowed quite a few points in their games against competitive opponents. This was not the same defensive team as last year by any means.

...Chryst at Wisconsin and Graham at ASU do seem to have made something of it. And Wanstadt effectively used it as a stepping stone into broadcasting, though I doubt that was the plan.

...our predictive skills here have not been super impressive. And the conventional wisdom is that the MSU head coaching job would be his when Dantonio retires.

Omgomgomg. No more* awkward moments with the TSA and my luggage full of beer.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Doesn't make any sense.||
With so many world leading organizations performing poorly and looking to make a change (Russia, Japan etc) and in need of a strong man at the helm, I don't see Harbaugh settling for an ambassadorship. Word on the street is that there may a vacancy in Pakistan shortly. How do you pass up a position at a nuclear power to go to Cuba or coach Michigan?
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Yup. That's your...||

...watch Star Wars Episodes 1-3. What is the scenario by which Brady Hoke becomes a super powerful evil cyborg that senses his enemies movements before they even make them and destroys the planet Columbus just to prove to everyone he's not f-iing around?
'Cause if that happens in the off-season I am okay with giving him one more year.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Jeez||
This is bad news regardless of who it turns out to be.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Well that's one.||
If we are following that trajectory we can take comfort in the fact that we are just in our Mike Price/Mike Shula period. All we gotta do now is hire an incredibly talented/hardworking sociopath.
