04/12/2018 - 3:22pm They don’t

It’s rather embarrassing how few sports they offer for such a huge and rich school. tOSU, for their part, I believe offers the most

03/29/2018 - 6:49pm Blame the people who wanted 9 conference games

9 games in a non-10 team league is completely pointless and now it’s killing our chances at playing someone interesting (sorry, ND doesn’t count, they are boring at this point).

The only difference is that the girls he assaulted were college students instead of little girls. I really have no words for this steaming pile of insanity

02/28/2018 - 10:18pm That’s not stupid

That’s entirely the difference between the NFL, NBA, and NHL and college sports. I love college sports so much more than professional sports (frankly I don’t even care to watch the NBA or NHL and only sparsely watch the NFL anymore). Once you turn college sports into the minor leagues it’ll look just like the minor leagues. Ask anyone who’s been to a minor league game - it pales in comparison to college.

Brian lives in a bit of a bubble on this. The vast majority of people are actually in group 1, then group 2, and then there’s a very small, but vocal, group of people in group 3.

02/12/2018 - 9:55pm I love science

So people are convinced that nutrition, backed up by tons of actual studies, must be wrong because of one study. I wonder how many of you think global warming is a hoax because one study, science based even, that says otherwise.

Such is the risk in thinking anything is “settled science” when it’s not as clear as, say, the earth is round (flat earthers be damned).

01/23/2018 - 3:39pm I just...

I don’t understand WHY they would cover it up. Penn State covered it up because it involved a coach tied to their legendary (now infamously so) coach. Wtf did MSU have to lose by firing A DOCTOR???? Is that some appeal in gymnastics? Oh hey, our coach is ok but, man, this one Dr, he’s AMAZING! I mean, I get the ties to USAG but, seriously, he was just a team Dr.

None of this even makes sense. Guh

It's not, at all. DFW is WAYY better than Houston, no idea why he hates it so much but based on his complaints it sounds like nothing short of cities like NYC and LA would suffice. DFW is a great place to live, plenty of things to do, lots of good food (haters gonna hate...), and there's plenty of "culture." Again, haters gonna hate but I wouldn't give any credence to anything he said.

02/01/2017 - 4:22pm Kinda feels like the music industry, pre-iTunes

You can bury your head in the sand and complain that people are "stealing" your IP but what you should really do is find a better way to sell it to them.  This is a "let's shut down Napster" move which made the music industry no money.  You want money, make it easier to people to get to your IP and pay you for it (HINT: CHARGE FOR THE APP).  Otherwise you're just running around telling people "hey, you can't use Kazaa either!" Good luck with that.

Clearly you didn't see the responses to said post. There were a very large number of people who either 1) disagreed with the opinion or, more importantly, 2) disagreed with it being on a sports blog.
I suppose you're arguing that people will put up with anything as long as they get a little out of it?
Speaking of creating a false narrative - I never said it upsets me that our political views don't align, I said I don't like seeing politics on a sports only Michigan blog. And, yes, many people agree with that (hell, just look at this thread). But I suppose you'll just say that's blatantly false too...

Any one who has been here long enough knows where Brian and the staff stand. There are dozens of not-so-thinly veiled political points thrown into tons of things and there was the infamous front page political monologue by Ace that somehow wasn't rejected immediately. We already deal with it because the Michigan content is so good but, hopefully, there was enough backlash from the front page post that they realize there's a limit to how far you can push the politics on a non-politics blog and still keep your readership.

Definitely stay in Fort Worth. Dallas isn't really set up for you to walk around and, frankly, I've never quite gotten the appeal (been here in DFW for over a decade now).

They tend to be night games since it's so hot so you'll probably have to pass on that. Parking wise it all depends on if you want to tail gate - frankly I'd just park in one of the non-Jerry World lots and go hit up Boomer Jacks after the game (to cheers a win or drown your sorrows) while traffic unwinds.

Oh, and another one. I can't remember who it was but when we got a sack and they were talking about how our guy came in "dangerously low" the OSU intentionally flipped his leg out to try and trip him. It was clear as day on the replay, should have been a penalty on top of the sack...

The point is that even with all those mistakes if we had even a "bad" crew we still would have likely won. Instead we ended up with a crew that found great joy in OSU scoring a TD (check the video, huge shit eating grin on that ref).

They aren't even excuses at that point - they are simply "reasons." You also won't find anyone who thinks we have the game away - the point is that we still should have won despite giving the game away.

I'm not sure that losing virtually all of the valuable players on both sides of the ball is going to set us up to be better next year. I'm thinking 9-3 or maybe 10-2 at best but I'm just REALLY hopeful that two of those are MSU and OSU

There's a very obvious angle in that video. I don't think it shows anything that hasn't already. The other thread with the picture that is looking down the line as opposed to looking down from above, at an angle, is much more convincing.

Either way, we need a camera built into the first down marker. They figured out how to get it in the pylon, why not the first down marker?

When you realize that the ball had to completely cross that yellow line (had to reach the white line, yellow line is just for TV) he still looks short. You're at a negative angle so there's that but the major point is he had to reach the WHITE line, yellow doesn't mean anything.

There's no monetary offer that an NFL team could conjure up that UM wouldn't be able to match. With profit sharing the NFL doesn't see the huge $ delta that a college team does. We could pay him 20M and still end up ahead in the end, in not sure the same could be said for the NFL.

Long? They are shorter than college games. If anything I think they should be longer. The complete idiocy of having the final 20 seconds evaporate because the refs are throwing the ball around instead of actually letting the players decide the game just boggles the mind. The college way is better in virtually every single aspect (although, as mentioned by others, they would need to start at the 40 or even 50 yard line so they aren't automatically in FG range).

Unless all the schools did it. College sports isn't about the true quality of the play on the field (if it was no one would watch, they'd all watch the NFL only). It's about relative quality. As long as our engineers were better than the other school's the stadium would be full just as it has been for decades.

It's because of how much they pour into their non-revenue sports. Michigan has a bit of the same issue and it's also why Texas is at the top - they don't field near the same number of non-revenue sports that UM and OSU does (last time I checked OSU fielded the most non-revenue teams of any school). I think that's actually a great thing and give my UT friends crap for not sharing the wealth and just sitting on it like a bunch of Scrooge McDucks
