It’s the short form of bronchioles. They’re really into the smaller airways in Oklahoma.

#12 overall is the highest a safety has been ranked since Derwin James in 2015 (#3). He’s in the NFL now.

I can’t wait for the snowflakes thread dedicated to the long snapper. 

09/16/2018 - 1:25pm People think the offense is…

People think the offense is vanilla because we’re saving the playbook for later in the year, but I’m hoping harbaugh was treating these last two non-conference games more like preseason games, trying to rep in games the things they need to improve on so they get better at them. It’s like when a big league pitcher makes a rehab start in the minors, they’re not always trying to finesse out there or out think the hitter. Sometimes they’re just using the opportunity to get their reps in so they get up to speed and execute at a higher level when it matters.

Strap a GoPro to each upright at least. They should actually have GoPro's on the pylons too. I'll bet GoPro would donate them if they got to use the footage in ads.

Classy move by the coaching staff getting Berkley Edwards a carry at the big house yesterday. I’m sure that it meant a lot to the kid 

09/08/2018 - 9:33pm This team needs some…

This team needs some confidence. As the game went on, you could see the difference. I think we screwed ourselves by playing ND game 1 and we’re in better shape now. Not that we’ll coast against better teams, but we’re moving in a good direction now. Just keep winning. 

09/01/2018 - 12:25pm Low expectations, hungry and…

Low expectations, hungry and talented team. Feels like 2006. I think 11-2 with the first loss on a bs call in Columbus and a 2nd loss in the playoff.  

09/01/2018 - 7:52am Good. They won, but now they…

Good. They won, but now they are a little more rattled. Nothing matters this year outside Michigan winning their games. No one is going to give us any breaks if we don’t.

ESPN is still making content? That's cute.

08/25/2018 - 10:44am This isn’t an apology for…

This isn’t an apology for his actions. It’s no different that saying, “I'm sorry we're in this situation." 

He’s still not saying I’m sorry I knew Zach was beating you back in 2009 and kept him on staff or I knew back in 2015 that he was beating you but continued to keep him on staff. He’s acting like he has no part in it. This is a black eye for OSU and the Big Ten. The conference needs to step in and suspend him for at least one season. 

08/16/2018 - 2:49pm I want someone who is hard…

I want someone who is hard to bring down, can cutback when nessessary and who can block consistently. Speed is useful, but in Harbaugh’s offense it seems more important to know where to go than to get there fast. 

08/13/2018 - 8:08pm In general, the laziness is…

In general, the laziness is amongst the rankings services, hence the lack of scouting on many of these guys. The coaches work hard and they probably have a pretty good idea about who they’ll get and the spots they have filled. 

08/13/2018 - 10:17am The question is whether he…

The question is whether he has those bigger aspirations. His pedigree suggests he will be. If he’s looking for a better job, then he needs to make his stamp on the place and no bigger way to do that than firing Urban Meyer. 

08/08/2018 - 7:40pm It’s probably for the best…

It’s probably for the best. He had 20 pass catches + runs a year for his first two years. That’s not a huge amount, but I’m not sure he’s improved enough to suggest he’ll get more. If he goes somewhere else maybe he gets more time and we get another recruit for 2019. 

07/30/2018 - 9:15am Michigan is a good school…

Michigan is a good school academically, but I’m sure there are enough soft classes and tutoring help to balance out the differences in academic standards between Michigan and other schools. The fact is that college itself is difficult for many kids academically and some will not be able to do it. Many can, so it’s a minority of kids who struggle to the point where they can’t make it, but they’d probably struggle to the same extent at Bama or OSU. Unless you’re implying that Bama and OSU cheat to keep kids eligible and I won’t disagree, but I’d point out they only cheat to keep players who play significant minutes eligible. 

07/07/2018 - 8:53am I took it more like they’re…

I took it more like they’re unlikely to move because he thinks their competition won’t change and so they’re unlikely to see anything new on film. The IMG and camp comments were about seeing them go up against better talent and doing well. Also, I think the likely to move up should often be has opportunity to move up, because it’s usually more that they’re going to play better quality opponents and could shine, not have already shined against better quality opponents (although those are in the list too).

Maybe he’s interjecting his opinion about guys rising to the occasion, or maybe likely to move up sounds better than opportunity to move up. Sure sounds better than likely to move down. I think he’d only say that if he knew they’d done poorly at a camp already. 

06/03/2018 - 12:13am He was originally only

He was originally only sentenced to 4 years at MSU, but got an extra 2-3 years tacked on for bad behavior.

05/27/2018 - 4:13pm Mark D’antoni is coaching

Mark D’antoni is coaching Western Kentucky now? MSU must be pissed.

05/25/2018 - 6:37am We haven’t had a legit top QB

We haven’t had a legit top QB option in a while. We have a lot of talent at WR. I’m expecting a much better offense than we saw last year.

05/11/2018 - 8:26pm Every year I hear “it’s a tie

Every year I hear “it’s a tie at QB” and I think QB competition is good. But really it’s because the perceived starter is meh. This year I’m expecting Harbaugh to say one guy is far out front because that needs to be the truth. It’s time to have a real clear starting qb again going into the season. No question marks.

05/01/2018 - 4:37am How about a round robin style

How about a round robin style tournament where each team plays say 162 games and the winners progress to an elimination style tournament. The elimination tournament could have best of 5 or 7 game series ultimately culminating in a championship series to decide who represents the best team in the world.

Wins was my answer too. That’s the change that will make everyone happy

I am new to the story. And the previous 3 postings.

I think it’s telling that other teams don’t do something like this.

Marvin, he was a friend of mine and he could sing a song his heart in every line.

So you’re saying he has a mean streak?  I thought that was a plus in an offensive lineman.

Zero tolerance Dantoni is the king of second chances. And third chances. He’s let players back on the team who went to jail.

04/07/2018 - 9:48am Not to defend BK, but

Not to defend BK, but deciding to transfer is under the umbrella of academics. I’m not sure what you’d want him to say. It’s probably not appropriate to say anything else, he’s not hurt, he shouldn’t mention that he’s considering a transfer, and “I don’t know” or other options would just draw more attention. As the article said, “Academics” is a non-issue for most people as it’s common to miss practice for classes.

04/03/2018 - 8:09pm Sorry. I meant we take a lot

Sorry. I meant we take a lot of perimeter shots/have a lot of jump shooters. We don’t have a really strong inside game compared to most teams, so shooters need to hit outside shots. They tend to be pretty far shots at that. So if they’re tired, they might have a tougher time making them.

04/03/2018 - 1:32pm Makes sense. We’re a team

Makes sense. We’re a team that needs a lot of threes to win and the tired legs may have led to poorer shots. We didn’t have a significant bench to speak of and had 3-4 starters every game playing 30+ minutes. Villanova had guys playing lots of minutes too, but they had a lot of guys playing closer to 20 min per game so they could maintain energy. We need more depth.

04/03/2018 - 6:18am Just enjoy that we got to see

Just enjoy that we got to see Michigan in the finals again. There's a reason why we recognize NCAA teams that make the sweet 16 and final four. It's hard to make the finals. We were this year's Cinderella, but our run started in the BTT. We had a lot of dominos fall help us to the finals, but Villanova was loaded with talent and played like it. Still it was great to see Michigan in the final game and hopefully this helps the program recruit talent going forward.

Those should be haikus. I’ll start:

For Moe's strength and love
Bicep flexing after score
Nick Ward ankles gone

For Simmons true heart
Ever the team, the team, the team
A Michigan man

For Charles Matthews

Knowing smile at Ward

04/01/2018 - 8:42pm Agreed. But our path in the

Agreed. But our path in the tournament was relatively soft. Our closest victory was against our best opponent by seed. And they were a 6 seed. Nova will be a big step up.

04/01/2018 - 9:07am We are the underdog, clearly,

We are the underdog, clearly. We got lucky with only facing low seeded opponents in the tournament so far, but we did beat enough quality opponents in the regular season and BTT that we deserve to be taken seriously in the championship game. Predicting an upset based on patterns or numerology is fun, but we need to play at a top level and Nova needs to have a less than great game. This year there hasn’t been a better team than Nova, but they’re not as invincible as previous champions seemed. So it all depends on who shows up and how they play.

03/31/2018 - 4:27pm I'm not sure I understand at

I'm not sure I understand at all why ole miss is involved at this point. On the face of it, I get that they're protecting their reputation, but the players are gone now. What do they get by fighting this? The players could argue it doesn't matter what happens to ole miss because the school couldn't demonstrate they weren't going to get punished. If ole miss is clean, it was up to ole miss to convince the players that the program was clean. They couldn't do that, so they left. now ole miss is seeking vengeance? It's really not their business what happens to these players.

Of course we all know they were dirty, and the players and NCAA know it too. In fact, these players should just come out and testify against ole miss because then they'd probably be protected from ole miss by whistleblower laws.

His ears are legally considered a handicap in ten states.

03/26/2018 - 3:08pm There’s the university and

There’s the university and the athletic department. The athletic department can go broke for all I care. They are the root of the problem and they should bear the brunt. The university punishment should be different. I’d say they the leadership all must go, but the financial penalty to the university should be low if any. The athletic program on the other hand should be forced to make financial restitution without tax payer funds or other state or school support (endowment). The endowment shouldn’t be used for sports and if they do it might be illegal. That’s money for building academic and research buildings, hiring faculty, running academic departments, etc. If the athletic department can’t pay it on their own, then shut them down.

03/16/2018 - 5:58am Ha. I meant people might

Ha. I meant people might disagree about college kids being impressionable.

03/16/2018 - 5:56am Ugly wins are important.

Ugly wins are important. Every year a few top seeds have an ugly win in their opening game then turn it up in game two. The important thing is to keep winning.

03/15/2018 - 6:07pm Right decision. Can't have

Right decision. Can't have coaches and staff on a college football team drinking and driving. I'm sure people will disagree, but college kids are still impressionable. You have to lead by example and expect a high standard.

03/12/2018 - 8:40am KU is the one of the most

KU is the one of the most undeserving number 1s in tournament history. 7 losses and some against non-tourney teams. The committee let ASU in to make Kansas look stronger. .

03/07/2018 - 10:21am With regards to the point

With regards to the point about DUIs. An employer can’t stop people from getting their first DUI and shouldn’t be held accountable unless the DUI occurred after a work event. They can control how they respond to the DUI either by reprimand or termination. So having coaches, players who get a DUI is really not a mark against the team unless it’s a repeat offense.

03/06/2018 - 9:26pm The winning isn’t a result of

The winning isn’t a result of a hot streak. Michigan looks sound and confident. The BTT run allowed them to beat handily MSU, Purdue and Nebraska, so there’s nothing but positive to focus on going into the break. Plus, if they’re a 2 or 3 seed, they can shake off any rust vs in game 1 vs a 14 or 15 seed. If they do make a deep tournament run, imagine how valuable this rest will be.

03/04/2018 - 9:06am I find it cool that the

I find it cool that the current world record was set in 1999 by Hicham El Guerrouj at 3:43.13. He beat the previous world record of 3:44.39, but had to sprint to hold off another runner (Noah Ngeny) in the last stretch. That guy also broke the record at 3:43.40. Pretty amazing.

02/22/2018 - 9:35pm Dude. Fuck Dan Enos. Let him

Dude. Fuck Dan Enos. Let him go to Bama like all the position coaches before him, and sure go ahead, win a couple of national championships there. But then he’ll get hired as a head coach somewhere like Colorado St. And he’ll do ok at a small school, but when the big time SEC school comes calling, watch him take a head coaching job somewhere like Florida. And then watch out because he’s going to suck there and then he’ll fuck a shark and come begging to us for a job and we’ll be like fine, but you’re only coaching WRs.

That will teach him.
