the chip some baseball fans have on their shoulders re: the Cubs is incredible. Sorry that people love our team. Sorry that people enjoy the ballpark atmosphere. I'm tired of having to apologize for the yuppies that populate Wrigley. WE'RE NOT ALL LIKE THAT!!! If only we all got to choose the teams we grew up near, we would all choose "blue collars teams that expect success." I grew up 4 blocks form Wrigley, and I will die a Cubs fan. I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

a stupid hypothetical, because Rodgers isn't a total idiot. Suh's "bad boy" thing is so played out, he's killing his team.

at 1107 S. State street--right across from the Ross Academic Center/very close to Yost. Nice group of guys who typically charge $20 per game. Very close to the Big House, too.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Effects of 3 and Out?||
Disclaimer--I haven't read the book yet! Only the excerpts published here. There's just not enough time for pleasure reading before xmas break. I do feel, though, that I have an adequate understanding of how the relevant actors (RR included) are portrayed.
Does anyone else think 3 and Out might hurt RR's chances at a big-time gig? It doesn't seem like Bacon paints RR as a bad guy or even necessarily a bad football coach. It does seem, however, that he shows RR as unready for a high pressure/high exposure position. I would think that's why RR was so pissed about the final product.
It's unclear as to whether AD's across the country would pay attention to a book like this, but you never know. Ole Miss is a definite pressure-cooker environment. Does anyone think the publication of this idea that RR wasn't cut out for the pressure and hostility of a program of this caliber might hurt him?
I certainly hope not.

Are you actually an Ivy-Leaguer? Your grammar stinks.
We can blame it on the coaches all day if we want. Remember, though: we live and die by number 16. This season, we've lived by him more often than not. Today, we died by him. Still proud to be a Wolverine, and still happy to have our players/staff.

but I always considered myself more of a "Mark's Midtown" kind of guy.

I can't let that go without an up-vote, or at least an acknoledgment. I'm adding it to the lexicon.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||you mean GOOD news?||
Mike Martin testing the NFL waters and Tate Forcier being ruled ineligible for the bowl game don't qualifiy as real news stories? Haha, not everything on here is worthless CC stuff, but I guess I see where you're coming from. It's tough to differentiate these days. Finally, here is some GOOD news!

So long, "Tressel Wears Uggs" t-shirt. It was a good run.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||I would tend to agree, but I||
I would tend to agree, but I think there's a strong counter-argument: no student-athlete is bigger than the program. While the prospect of not maximizing a heisman-level talent is frustrating, to suggest that a coaching decision should be made according to one student-athlete's skill-set is absurd, especially at a place like Michigan. I, personally, would like to see Rodriguez get another shot with a (hopefully) revamped devensive staff and some extra experience on both sides of th ball. But if a change were to be made, worrying about one guy (as good as he may be) is a little short-sighted...don't ya think?
|3 years 42 weeks ago||On a slightly different note:||
I'm a big fan of the student section shirts. I feel like they finally got it right: simple, classy, sleek. Most student section shirts are too busy, contain some sort of slogan that takes away from the main point (i.e. Michigan, Wolverines, the sport for that particular shirt, etc), or are just ugly in general. I would actually want to wear these shirts outside of a game or the gym, for once.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||I agree.||
I think we should just go ahead and establish that Braylon is singularly in charge of designating who wears the number 1. That would avoid any real discrepencies on the matter. Not to mention, A) Coach Rod doesn't need to distract himself with any personal accolade BS, and B) Braylon knows a thing or two about being a great college reciever. I trust him to make the right choice.

"Only a dozen or so games at middle linebacker."
Anyone know where he was before that? He looks like he's been destined for this position his whole life.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Sorry homie,||
but a simple glance at Denard's bio isn't sufficient. He's not from Pahokee, he's from Deerfield Beach.
The wiki image? A beach.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Hate to be this guy,||
but, couldn't you say the same things about mostly everyone on our schedule?
If we looked back to our records against B10 teams of the past to comfort ourselves, we would all sleep like babies every night of the week. Part of what constitutes a REAL rivalry is the possibilty that the game could go either way in any given year. Thus, Michigan has two REAL rivalries: OSU and ND. Historically, we've played them relatively even (although I believe we have winning records against both of them). The MSU "rivalry" mostly stems from in-state recruiting battles and their wonderful inferiority complex, not from a historically even match-up.
My point is, we aren't supposed to lose to any of these other teams, let alone in consecutive seasons. HIstorically, none of them are an even match-up. This includes Little Brother. We're Michigan, let's not forget that.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Personally,||
I love seeing Tom Brady and the Patriots succeed. The Pat's are much more likely to contend for a ring this year, so I would just as soon see them win tonight and going forward. Think about it this way: the more rings Brady piles up, the more he solidifies himself as our answer to Joe Montana.
...On second thought, maybe my hate for ND has permiated too much of my life.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||The beauty of all this:||
If you asked Mr. Robinson, he would also rather win 8-9 games and beat OSU. Here's to the two not being mutually exclusive!

No offense to anyone (you especially, Juice), but when I think of Denard Robinson's potential/list of appropriate goals, I try to aim a little higher than Juice Williams.

30 seconds to decipher this. Accurate. Well done.

Couldn't agree more, and I loved this column. I thought this was classic Simmons. He had gotten away from this kind of writing for a while, particularly when he was working on his book. But he seems to be back in full form, and the wait on the book was worth it. I would advise anyone and everyone to pick up a copy.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Hmm.||
Great point. I forgot about running the baseline. Still though, I think a good argument can be made for both sides.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Common Sense?||
If Tennessee was out of timeouts, it would have made a lot of sense. But they had one left, and it only took .2 off the clock. I think I would take a point over two tenths, regardless of circumstances.

95% seems a little high, but if I had to bet, I would guess somewhere around 80%. If you had to pick a starting 5 of NBA stoners (suspected), who would it be? I'm going with:
C. Eddy Curry (obvious problem with the munchies)
Head Coach: Bill Walton
