^This. The #1 will have to play the #2 anyways (theoretically). I don't think it matters that much if you play the #3 or the #4 on your way. And I think this team would respond better to being an underrated #2 rather than being overhyped #1.

Maybe I'm from a different generation, but I just assume the Spartans will return to their usual Spartan self of being Little Brother. They've had a few good years, but the natural order of things will eventually take hold and they will go back to beating themselves and choking.

It's 8:30 pm in Hawaii. ESPN GameDay starts at 3:30 am. Not sure I can make it.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Jibreel is changing the name of where the QBs and RBs line up from backfield to Blackfield.

Anyone know where these guys sit?

All games are now on mgoblue. I listened to the whole game on my iphone.

So let me preface this with... I don't know shit about football and it's just a stupid hypothesis... but when I reverse the spin on a frisbee and throw it underhand with my thumb instead of the usual way, the drop rate from the guy catching it is at least double, and probably triple or quadruple. People catching a frisbee are expecting a certain spin and don't realize that the spin is coming opposite. The difference is extremely subtle, but there are hundreds of hours of practice that go into making you really good at catching a frisbee without thinking about it and I believe a tiny change can have an effect. I wonder if the same thing may happen with a football thrown by a lefty. The spin is completely reversed making the most subtle difference. Sure you can get used to it, but it's still different than 90% of all the other footballs you've caught in your life. Obviously, the spin on a football is less of a factor than it is with a frisbee and clearly this isn't the only reason why there are few lefty QBs, but every time I throw a frisbee with reverse spin and the guy drops it (which is a lot) I think about Shane's lefty spin. Dumb hypothesis, but it's better than any other explanation I've heard yet.

If Lewan = Clowney and Clark = Lewan, then MFing Clark = Clowney. So we're good.

I would like one of them there "Wolverines in the D" t-shirts.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Well at least...||
Even if you can't win the top class ranking it's still nice to be in the lead for awhile and get the national attention.

...when the lady manning the full body scanner faints after seeing Lewan's dong.

This is what we wanted. We want the best for our guy and this would be the best decision. Hearing all these names of lesser players opting out early it would be a travesty for him to not go to the next level where we all know he is going to succeed and represent our university well.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||The good news...||
I think the good news is that we've had more unlucky breaks than lucky breaks this year. A free throw or 1 inch swing on the last shot against Indiana and no half court bomb against Wisconsin and we are a 2 seed. I know being young hurts, but young players are also streaky. Maybe Nik and GR3 and Mitch will get that confidence that you only get when you're too naive to know better.

ACLs and MCLs are pretty easy to fix. The lateral tibial plateau fracture is the real bugger. Inevitably, the cartilage surface is jacked up and these things take anywhere from a long time to never to heal. Unless it's a minimal microtrabecular fracture it's pretty safe to assume that she's out for the Olympics.

I got Michigan at +5.5 on sportsbetting.com and took them. I usually prefer to bet against Michigan that way when we lose I don't feel quite as suicidal, but I couldn't refuse 5.5.

I friggin love coach Hoke, but he's not very forthcoming with juicy tidbits of information.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||I really hate to say this...||
I can't help but mention that the coverage on the go ahead touchdown was Demens. He made up for it nonetheless.

RR's Arizona Wildcats (5-3) ranked #24. They lost 49-0 to Oregon.

We'll be back.
We're going to have no trouble with Illinois and then it's time for Little Brother to be put back in the corner once and for all.

I went to Florida for grad school after finishing my undergrad at UofM in 1997. I was there for some fun years under the ol Ball Coach. It's a fun place on Saturday with a very loud stadium and extremely rabid fans, but there's a level of intelligence, sophistication, history and understated badassery about the University of Michigan and it's football program that puts it on another level than any other program in the country.

I tell my wife that it was the best night of my life, she gets upset and then we fight. I don't care.
Here's the view from my front row corner seat.

It would be so excellent if we could turn Armwood High into Pahokee v2.0.

“It was actually with the whole staff,” Booker said. “Coach Beilein, Bacari, LaVall, all of them. We went out to eat at Noodles and Company.”
Well isn't that nice...
|2 years 14 weeks ago||They never care..||
Players never seem to care about depth charts. Every year I notice that kids would rather go to the "it" school with a bunch of other 5 star recruits then go to some other school where their skills are needed. See our OL last year and this year.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||On call...||
I'm the on call doc in the ER. Funny how no one gets sick when there's good sh*t to watch on TV. I worked the Super Bowl too and spent my time reading posts about TV shows on mgoblog.com. Deja vous.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Dear God,||
Please Dear Lord, make it stop. It was great during the UTL game, but every time we play it Michigan football becomes more generic and mainstream lame. Is it too much to ask for the slightest bit of originality in our stadium experience?
|2 years 35 weeks ago||3:02 left in the fourth||
3:02 left in the fourth quarter against ND. 3rd and 1 ND ball and Jake Ryan comes around the end for the TFL. My favorite play of the year. The loudest Ive ever heard Big House.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Because I was curious...||
I looked up how a few of the sites rank Payton and Chesson amongst the WRs.
Jordan Payton #14 (Scout), #20 (Rivals), #25 (ESPN)
Jehu Chesson #77 (Scout), #90 (Rivals), #51 (ESPN)
So, we'll take Chesson and be done and miss out on Payton, the "better" prospect of the two?

"I'd like to think in four or five years we'll have this (Arizona) program where we want it to be and we'll be in the same conversations as the top football programs in the country."
You WOULD like to think that. Saying stupid sh*t like this just because you think you're supposed to vexes me. We should have known better when he agreed to screw his alma mater over or better yet when his undefeated team lost at home to Pittsburgh in the last game of the season.
Ready to move on.
