11/21/2017 - 1:16pm Go Fawkes yourself

How can you not see an improving young team?   Harbaugh has done a good job in his time at Michigan, but you can not expect a half a team of freshmen to produce more than they have without solid QB play.  If you don't understand how much better they looked with Peters at QB I can't help you.  They have a great d and with consistent QB play they would be looking at a magical year, you don't get magical years when you get to the 3rd guy at QB*.  (*fuck you ohio State you don't count)

09/07/2017 - 12:25pm In Washington this means something different

I have given some thought to opening a burrito place next to a weed store and calling it twisting fatties.

08/08/2017 - 10:47am I heard about this on NPR

If they can turn on oncogene, can they program it to reproduce desired cells?  Like repairing a heart by having the body rapidly reproduce the cells that are defective?  This is getting to the crazy stage where it is happening so fast it is hard to predict what they will discover, hope science spending cuts don't impead the discoveries. 

06/16/2017 - 10:57am We would never do that

Right?  Cough *lloyd carr*

02/25/2017 - 3:20am Ball cyclotron

Look it up on youtube but it is a ball painted with conductive paint,  a glass bowl, aluminum tape and a power source. shows how an actual particle accelerator works and how it increases the speed to the voltage.  Boom she wins the sceince fair the person who dumped her will cry because they did not stick around for the awesome magic sceince device

01/18/2017 - 6:57pm are you saying Harbaugh needs a reprap?

I mean 3d printers are cool but I am not sure how that makes us win more games.

01/16/2017 - 11:59pm I made a lateral move like that once

It led to a WWII surplus desk next to jeepin ben and 2 years of nausiating regret.  I will never change jobs again willingly for less money.

01/16/2017 - 11:56pm Great for him.

We will have many coaches come through, that is what you call being successful.  I am 100% confident that coaching with his kid on the team was a life high point whether he knows it now or not.  It was great to see him on the Michigan sideline and I won't be surprised if it isn't the last time.  Go Blue.

01/09/2017 - 2:07pm With what the top schools paying the coordinators

I doubt you will see a lot of the high level coordinator to lower level head coach much.  In most cases it would be a pay cut.  Coordinator jobs seem to be going to fired head coaches these days.

01/07/2017 - 9:18am or the athiest

I believe the joke is

The dyslexic athiest that didn't believe in dog

and

The dyslexic agnostic who believed there might be a dog.

01/07/2017 - 9:13am I wish I could be him

Goes to work every day spouting bull shit and is usually wrong.  A broken clock is right twice a day.  Unless it's digital or on your phone, then when they are broken they are neither right nor wrong.  So he is as useful as a poorly operating outdated mechanical machine and I believe he's a Michigan guy so yeah. Must have taken classes with Drew Sharpe(rip).

01/07/2017 - 9:06am I am not sure the Browns fans are the best yard stick

They were pretty happy when Bill Belichick got canned too.

12/22/2016 - 6:19pm Pedantic defined:

It is a bit pendantic to use pendantic on a sports blog.

12/21/2016 - 1:40pm What was once called a germaphobe

is now called a medical professional.  The "over" hand washers were right.

11/23/2016 - 2:33am I wonder if someone will ride the MACtion at some point

Look how long Chris Peterson stayed at Boise and he was the second coach to be competitve there.  Look at the subdivision teams that regularly beat the hell out of FBS teams, North Dakota, Eastern Washington, Apple something or other before they strepped up.  It happens, regularly. I live in Spokane and the Zags coach has road the West Coast Confrence for years.  None of the crazy preasure of bigger schools. He gets paid nearly as much is always in the top ten with a brutal preseason schedule and a cup cake league.  Even if you missed the playoffs the first time long term results get you there eventually.  It is not like the Mac is going to suddenly have a murderers row.  Just need the right school or the right alumnus.  Maybe UMass.  Maybe Dave Letterman is bored.  It could happen.

11/21/2016 - 3:36pm Anyone is an improvement over the indiana game

they were really bad.

11/14/2016 - 8:30pm That guy looks familiar

Doesn't that guy look like a more informed Danny Kanell?

11/10/2016 - 12:05pm You all sound like NFL reporters

Never going to happen, never going to happen, oops.  Don't confuse your desires for coach and his.  I have rescently realized things don't always go the logical way and sometimes things are just hard to figure out.  Confusing my opinion and the prevailing wisdom of the out come can be completely wrong.

11/07/2016 - 10:31pm At Michigan he can play

Meritocracy at Michigan, if you are better you play.  You work harder and win you play.  That is the way of a fair world, easy way out usually isn't and never leads to the same place.  Small exception made to kids of multimillionares, some times they are born on third base and think they hit a triple.

11/06/2016 - 8:07pm Just turn the tv off.

Don't like him?  Listn to the radio feed.

11/06/2016 - 8:03pm He seems like a straitght shooter to me.

Yes he is a buckeye homer, that doesn't mean he isn't telling it as he sees it. Never seemed to notice unlike a mr spielman.

11/06/2016 - 7:55pm most likely Senario is by way of winning the Big Ten

Don't kid yourself our beloved coach(all hail harbaugh) is not as beloved elsewhere.  They would love to rub his nose in it.  Just win. Or plan on next year.

11/06/2016 - 11:05am There were real rivalries in the NFL

Cowboys- racial slurs, raiders-steelers, packers-bears.

11/06/2016 - 11:02am I think it is the 7 games series in the later rounds

NBA seems to lend it self more to rivalries, you are in physical contact more and they play seven game series in the playoffs.  Lakers-kings was like that.  Pistons bulls, lakers celtics currently look for OKC-Golden State to turn up the heat.  If they were to meet in a seven game confrence finals it would be on.

11/06/2016 - 10:54am Thomas's Pistons vs everybody

I think of the Bulls as the Pistons rival back in the day.   Truth is everyone hated them.  That is why Thomas was not on the Dream Team. 

11/06/2016 - 10:49am Best kind of Lions Rival Game

They never lose it.

11/06/2016 - 10:47am don't tell Justin Boren

IF you look at the years he was there he might have made the right football choice. 

11/03/2016 - 2:59am Cleveland you mad bro?

Blow a 3-1, real sucks donut ain't it?  Atleast you have the Cavs right?

 

signed Golden State

11/01/2016 - 12:03pm I was of the opinion it was against league rules

Why no SEC at the big house?  LSU, Florida and Alabama can't find the way? They should try Google maps, it is great.

10/29/2016 - 11:32am This feels like when Bolten went to the dogs

And our dogs are still hungry from last year

10/29/2016 - 11:25am That is the reverse homer none jinx

He doesn't want to jinx it.  Every Michigan person I know has tempered the shit talk to avoid the dreaded Homer jinx, usually with the reverse homer jinx.

10/28/2016 - 4:59pm If they set the salary caps together

You have an issue.  They do set them individually now.    I just have an issue with handycapping those who can so those who can't are artificially better.

10/28/2016 - 4:48pm People who call for pay caps

Should have their pay capped. I call bullshit on one person telling another person what they can pay a 3rd.

10/25/2016 - 1:20am Worst call I have ever seen

I wonder if that guy still has a job.

10/25/2016 - 1:17am A good reporter would have asked what he thinks about the Cubs.

First question.  His love of baseball would have made the rest of the press confrence go smooth as silk.   The press needs a Harbaugh fluffer.

10/25/2016 - 1:09am Some time in the 90s the focus changed

 The time has passed when a persons reputation was considered when writing a story or when asking a stupid question.  We have decided we want all the information quickly and we will figure it out.  Speed over accuracy.  That is why the writers and reporters are paid shit, their job is not hard when you don't have to be sure they are correct and they no longer have to pay for reputation.

10/23/2016 - 8:51pm Lots of websites cater

On Sunday Chick Fil A isn't one of them.  No issues except the Airports with ChickFilA, sucks when your at a gate with a closed food place.   

10/23/2016 - 5:55pm Resurged in the 80s

SUn glasses mostly but also the avent garde of the time,  I also see them often now.

10/23/2016 - 5:51pm Not Obscure, big hit

It was a different day, a different time, We were experiment with wearing our clothes backward.   It was 1993 and we all were Krossed Up. On a beautiful afternoon trip to blockbuster I saw the cover,   a man wearing wood hayes glass and he was not going to take it any more.   He was his own woody hayes and the world is a randum Clemson player.  This is a movie that definently wasn't wiggity wiggity wiggity wack.

10/22/2016 - 10:45am I believe it was a thought out decision

As someone above said he should take a job to learn how a successful team is ran.  The system at Oregon has been one of the most success programs over the last decade and polar opposite of his experience.  This should be a chance for him to expand his experience and knowledge to prepare for his next head coaching job.  The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. 

10/22/2016 - 10:35am And Purdue is a Mac- Level Job

If this were e harmony we would have a match.

10/22/2016 - 10:26am This a two fold deal

I am going to preface this by saying Idon't know if he is a good or poor DC.  These are observasions not excuses.

They play fast on offense.  This becomes an issue when you aren't playing well.  (See Michigan 2008-2010) .  Puts the D on the field forever, they get tired and yards and points add up.

He Richrodded the D.  By that I mean he was unable to adapt to coaching the talent he had.  He changed the defensive scheme without the horses in the barn to run the new scheme.  A better course of action in my opinion is coach to your teams strengths, recruit to your schemes needs. 

 

10/22/2016 - 10:15am Generally those contracts are for coaching Pro football

Bobby Patrino left a note and spinning sage brush on his way out of Atlana, Saban and I am not interested in coaching Alabama at Miami,  I am not sure how often it happens in reverse.  Those two and our guy are the only ones I can think of.

10/22/2016 - 10:00am I would take him at that position

I would be more than happy if he were the replacement for greg madison if he ever retires.  Think of the recruiting talent Hoke brought in at the position, he is a good line coach and a very good recruiter.  Maybe a quality control guy like Saban does with former USC head coaches so they are ready to replace the next coordinator that gets a head coach.  They are in place and know the system so there is no slow down in the process.

10/21/2016 - 10:20pm I like to game when my wife isn't home too

We are calling looking at porn "game" right?

10/17/2016 - 5:21pm Stanford isn't a p12 power

They are back to the mean.  The power part was the cult of Harbaugh.

10/15/2016 - 10:06pm 2 favorite teams Michigan and Whomever is playing Ohio State

But it would be cool to play them undefeated, it adds to the tradition.  Beat them, beat bucky again then beat Washington then Beat Ohio State again, Profit.

10/14/2016 - 8:48pm Go to harbor freight

You can lift anything with enough pullys. if there is a roof above the deck screw a heavy eyelet into a beam.  You can either get an electric wench at the Freight or snatch blocks and rope.  They have load levelers to help balance and many many nylon straps. 

10/09/2016 - 12:47am No Politics.

Secretary of Defense?

10/08/2016 - 4:37pm Getting chafed?

The g string is suppose to go in the back.
