The fans here are becoming accustomed to winning. They are more tolerant because they don't see a threat either, and with good reason. The little brother meme died on its own last Saturday. Mike Harts reality and this current one aren't the same unfortunately.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||And just like a high school||
And just like a high school sometimes the readers of this blog feel they are untitled to voice their opinions as loudly as they can with no repercussions. There really is this belief that an open forum provides some free speech right, no matter how harmful that speech might be to the overall product. I think this blog would be better served sometimes with just a comment section after the front page content instead of a dedicated forum which grants every dickhead with an opinion a platform to rabble rabble rabble.

Florida does not qualify as the deep south. Once you cross over the Georgia border you are back in the north somehow.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||So that's why the Lions took||
So that's why the Lions took Stanton over David Harris when they needed LB help and moved up in the second round a few years back. It all makes sense to me know.
But I agree with your point 100%. Nothing the Lions have ever done should be used to prove any sort of point ever.

So because they are both big dudes, they are similar? Does Drew laugh out loud when he's typing, thinking about how he can needle a fan base? Fucking idiot.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah not so sure. Griese||
Yeah not so sure. Griese must have used the "don't you know who I am?" line a lot. I've personally heard it even after his college playing days were over. He was drunk and belligerent at the time so who knows must have been his "go to" phrase.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||I'm sure he's not going to||
I'm sure he's not going to admit that they royally screwed up allowing a legacy recruit who is also going to be a lottery pick to end up elsewhere. But can you really see us winning a head-to-head battle for a five star legacy recruit against Purdue at that time (because ultimately that is the talent level he ended up at)? I find that version of events harder to swallow then the one Matt Painter has stated.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||No, but Matt Painter said||
No, but Matt Painter said that. I'm sure Purdue would like to have a mulligan, but it appears they felt like their priorities needed to be elsewhere in that class at least early on. Basketball classes are so small if you make commitments early on it might close the door on a late blossoming, in state recruit. I don't have a problem accepting that this is what happened.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah just a personal||
Yeah just a personal preference and quirk. I do however love throwing a can in the food processor with an onion, garlic, and fresh lime juice and marinating my chicken overnight.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Nothing wrong with it, I love||
Nothing wrong with it, I love it in certain applications. But I really like to control the ingredients in my rub and sauce which is why I use whole dried chiles (better flavor and no added ingredients). I think most commercial adobo is tomato, vinegar, garlic, and "spices", so I guess in would rather add those items in controlled amounts. Also dried chiles are easier for me because I always end up needing to strain any sauce using fresh chiles so I can remove and chunks.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||I jest, but appreciate the||
I jest, but appreciate the offer. I actually have a pantry full of dried peppers to last me until the end of time.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||You should ship me some as||
You should ship me some as your way of saying "thanks".
|24 weeks 5 days ago||I do a few different sauces,||
I do a few different sauces, depending on the type of meat. Some ingredients I've had success with are chipotles(don't like to use any of the adobo sauce just the pepper good smokiness, or if you can find smoked dried peppers even better), dark unsweetened cocoa powder, or orange soda. I did an orange soda BBQ sauce made with old fashioned orange soda, habeneros, and sage that was out of this world on smoked chicken quarters. Also if you don't already grind your own chile peppers, you should. This will be the biggest difference maker for flavor profile in your sauce since you can create your own blend.

I can't stand the cubs or their fans, but how do you hate Wrigley? Tigers stadium and old Yankee stadium were awesome dumps too.

92 NCAA run the win against UCLA coming from17 or 18 down in the second half is the only thing that comes close for me. I think Jimmy King had a late tip in of a Rose miss. Didn't have the same late game heroics but comeback was improbable

I'm curious to see how Minny looks tonight. I think they are better served getting out of the big ten regular season and will give Florida a challenge (I can hope at least, right?).
|37 weeks 4 days ago||So I know it's just a few||
So I know it's just a few tourney games but I can't help but think the officiating in the big ten really aided OSU and Wiscy. Craft going for a steal on lucious and getting called for a foul seems like a good example. He clearly put his shoulder into his mans chest but Craft doesn't get why the contact is being called. OSU's offense seems incapable of beating a quality opponent the way these games are bring called.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I don't really cheer for OSU||
I don't really cheer for OSU and msu in bowl games, but it is embarrassing when the conference looks like crap. I would prefer OSU win this game but not make it to the championship. To me a bowl game and second round tourney match up are not equal.

Color of Money as most underrated
|41 weeks 1 day ago||I thought the o line changed||
I thought the o line changed their jerseys because they were getting held partly because of excess fabric below the arm pits. I don't know how those bball jerseys would feel to wear for 40 minutes. Maybe they feel the same as a regular tank top jersey, but probably not. But the style change isn't for improved function but purely cosmetic and man does that seem stupid as hell.
|41 weeks 1 day ago||If the change is purely||
If the change is purely cosmetic I would say the players have little to no input; but in this case where the jersey itself fits differently I bet if the players tried them and said they didn't like it, that would carry a lot of weight.
|42 weeks 3 days ago||I'm definitely a "trust the||
I'm definitely a "trust the coaches" type, but this seems strange. Its just that the kid has another season of football, so the two most likely things to happen are:
1. He has a great season, receives other offers and Michigan has to decide whether to match those scholarship offers.
2. He has a meh season, maybe picks up some low level offers and Michigan takes him on as a grayshirt.
It just seems strange to offer him even a grayshirt option so early in the recruiting cycle, I could understand if he was a 2013 kid who showed great raw skills or maybe played at a small school somewhere off the beaten path. But it seems like if this kid shows promise UM will have to pony of a scholarship offer in order to keep him coming here. I guess maybe its their way of saying we like your potential but we have a small class so this is our way of showing our interest?

Chip Kelly should just draft him as a quarterback. Problem solved.
|46 weeks 1 day ago||Sure but there are way less||
Sure but there are way less five star players each year. This may be a data point but its just not a very good one. Didn't the mathlete do a diary on star ratings and all pro selections?
|48 weeks 5 days ago||I'm not sure losing all of||
I'm not sure losing all of our conference's coaches to what are essentially lateral moves (sure USC>msu but he's got to be on short lists for hc jobs) is a good thing. MSU even bumped his salary to make sure he didn't leave for another DC position. At some point the schools in this conference are going to need to invest their BIG network dollars back into their coaching staffs (obviously us, OSU, and PSU excluded)
|48 weeks 6 days ago||Ok well if its not Brandon||
Ok well if it's not Brandon who sat down with Adidas and layed out the expectations and vision the university has regarding uniforms, then it is somebody he directly hired. At some point representatives from this university were sold on periodically putting out alternate uniforms and then Adidas went and designed the garbage. Maybe Brandon has nothing to do with which designs were put out, but he had to have played a role in the decision that we were going to head down this road.
I'm sure Nike has pitched ideas to Alabama and I'm sure that Alabama's position is that they are going to mostly avoid any changes to their uniforms. Michigan could have taken this position with Adidas but chose differently and Brandon would have been involved in that decision.
|1 year 3 hours ago||You said it.||
Yes how we crown the national champion in NCAA bball is inherently flawed. Single elimination and neutral courts are not the way to determine who is a better team.
|1 year 1 week ago||I'm not sure your definition||
I'm not sure your definition of "major" but Lansing's marathon is end of April. Great time of year to run and its a pretty fast track as long as the the wind isn't blowing 40 mph again this year. I think we had about 500 full marathon participants as opposed to about 800? at A2. I ran in a2 all through undergrad and I can only assume that the marathon course would not be fun to try to BQ on even in the spring or fall.

I think Hoke's priority for games is the following:
Ohio >>>>> Rest of Big Ten > Non-Conference > Bowl Game
If Devin Gardner needs to tote the rock 40 times to beat Ohio he will carry it 40 times. I am excited to see this offense next week with no self-imposed lilmitations because of a lack of depth at QB behind Gardner.
