12/06/2018 - 8:08pm It was the worst post-trip…

It was the worst post-trip experience ever...straight up sitting on the toilet for a week straight. The sort of thing that I think according to WebMD permanently damages your kidneys or whatever forever. But I think I'm OK now. Plz don't scare me further with factz.

I do have a nice cigar collection though :)

I would reconsider that Cuba trip. I was there 2 years ago and most of my travel party had food poisoning for a week.

A better idea would be a Pacific island like the Samoas or the Fijis...you know, better recruiting opportunities.

The whole team and the coaches are getting his belt.

and this is a Georgia team playing freshmen on the OL...

11/29/2018 - 7:23pm Start paying athletes…

Start paying athletes outright and it's not college athletics any longer. No thanks. 

Let's start by getting the money out of the system and getting rid of these ridiculous cable contracts and  apparel sponsorships, then lower coach and athletic department salaries and ticket prices. Anyone with a smartphone should be able to broadcast out of a publicly-funded university stadium. Fewer commercials to watch, we will all love it!

I think there's some sort of historical relationship between GDP and money spent on athletics/entertainment historians have measured since Roman times. Things seem really out of whack these days.

I'm just wondering whether Hart's eyes shed tears when he heard Chase's interview post MSU.

Just a singular data point: I got the flu shot a month ago but I'm coming down with mild flu bug right now. My last year's flu shot also did not protect me either from a nasty bug that lasted for a few weeks. I probably would not bother getting these shots but my company pays for them.

confirmed: Harbaugh made a deal with the devil. We’re winning the natty this year boys.

11/17/2018 - 3:32pm I want to see WH style…

I want to see WH style highlights of Urban Meyer’s frustrations regardless the outcome of this game. I think that bald spot has slowly grown bigger over the course of this.

11/17/2018 - 12:24pm What does Urban need more…

What does Urban need more right now...a slice of pizza or a golf cart?

11/14/2018 - 11:49am so who's going to the Match…

so who's going to the Match at the Loo this year?

11/12/2018 - 9:12am Replace Jason Witten on MNF,…

Replace Jason Witten on MNF, get a fat beer or insurance advertising contract ...be the subject of coaching rumors every year.

11/09/2018 - 10:25am Under Armour is a trash…

Under Armour is a trash company with a trash management that makes trash uniforms, clothing and shoes. While a few kids may benefit from the exposure of this game, most are probably already considering several scholarship offers or have already committed, and they're just helping UA market themselves.

AN OSU gets a chance to get their "The" back from MSU (which they lost to Purdue, who then lost it to MSU).

 

And then we can take it!

I just want to hear them play Neck.

Herm Edwards...he's so hot right now. Firm for Herm.

10/26/2018 - 7:53pm I think Jumpman should be…

I think Jumpman should be below Desmond Howard's nutz. That's also alot of maize iron you have to stare at all day. Some things are best left grey. Come back with new blueprints in a month.

edit: and echoing other sentiments that it would be nice also if regular students had access - or if the CCRB gets a major upgrade.

OMG, storm the field and play Neck!

Bump bump bump, for a cancer kid.

10/20/2018 - 10:20pm Watching this game on replay…

Watching this game on replay, and was giddy with what I saw. This team played to win the game! Rewatching the DPJ touchdown a few times and I still can’t be certain that catch could have been made. Such athleticism, reminds me of that freshman Mario Manningham reception vs Penn State, when he burned Justin King hard.

10/16/2018 - 7:34pm Meh, sports journalism is on…

Meh, sports journalism is on the same level as TMZ and Hollywood journalism. In the end, it's all entertainment. But if you want to project grander issues on it, go for it.

10/16/2018 - 9:05am Sports journalism isn't real…

Sports journalism isn't real journalism though. In the end, it's free marketing and advertising for sports teams (which also happens to attract more clicks/newspaper subscriptions). 

 

The coaches and sports journalists need to realize they need one another.

Harbaugh trolling the whole state of Wisconsin in lieu of MNF?

10/13/2018 - 10:19pm That’s the second “Jumpman”…

That’s the second “Jumpman” INT we’ve seen...4th qtr, same QB, same house.

good on Metellus not getting stiff-armed into the shadow realm

We should be on a new Michigan drive by now if it weren’t for the stupid holding penalty.

10/01/2018 - 10:56pm Depending on orbital…

Depending on orbital positions, radio signals can take between 4 to 24 minutes to get from Earth to Mars. So I don’t think reviews will be very practical, unless we want very long commercial breaks.

09/29/2018 - 8:39pm The press coverage with…

The press coverage with single high safety on 3rd and vey longs (I'm referring to the 3rd and 13 where the CB holding penalty gave NW the 1st down)...I hope that stops for good now.

09/22/2018 - 3:34pm Scott Frostys for everyone!

congrats to Jabrill Peppers on his first NFL win?

My wallet isn't annoyed and I still have to watch ads (isn't this like the cable and network companies double-charging us?). Besides, my friends consider me family :)

09/11/2018 - 1:09pm I don't mind the lack of…

I don't mind the lack of games on BTN at all. I cut the cord and have been using a friend's cable account login to stream sports from various apps on Apple TV. BTN is the only channel out of the major sport ones without an app.

09/05/2018 - 8:39am Easy. Jet sweep right.

Easy. Jet sweep right.

Congrats on making TWIS. Also dropped in to chime that nobody in Michigan has been making babies on Saturday nights for a while now.

Tom Herman was on the grassy knoll.

 

Tom Herman also saw some grassy knoll.

08/24/2018 - 1:56pm Big contract language…

Big contract language misperceptions going on here: for Urban Meyer, they are just possible excuses for termination WITH CAUSE (no further payouts), not "you will be fired" reasons. He serves at the pleasure of the AD and the OSU institution and they are happy with him as long as he wins.

You as a teacher may be in a situation where you will be fired for those behaviors, but for the fortunate, some bad or sketchy behaviors will be overlooked as long as they are productive, well-liked or highly-profitable employees. C'est la vie.

Things will go crazy if we find out Harbaugh kips his pullups.

Pros

Bethesda, MD

Pros

-urban living without the crowds, and easy access to nature and biking/walking trails

-probably the highest per-capita density of gyms and yoga studios . People here like to stay fit.

-very close to DC as well as all the other towns around DC

-we get to see Michigan football every other year (when they play the Terps)

 

Cons

-expensive (but not DC expensive)

-construction going on everywhere, all the time

-the restaurants are rather bland and boring despite the constant turnover and new openings

-the nightlife isn't so great either

-the bar down the block from me is an Ohio State bar now (Tommy Joe's, which used to be a Michigan bar before they changed locations)

 

06/13/2018 - 8:19pm Last Fall, I had a Roku…

Last Fall, I had a Roku stick streaming Hulu, and the service was piss poor during Michigan games.  I switched to the Apple TV 4K later on, and Hulu ran much, much better. 

I highly recommend the Apple TV 4K. The remote kind of sucks, but the flyby screensavers are stunning and worth watching alone.

01/04/2018 - 7:35pm so?

not sure what S&P stats mean. Coordinating lower-tier ACC teams might have led to that. My eyeball test was witnessing his BC team move the ball this year in the one or two games I watched.

01/04/2018 - 6:18pm really...

Scott Loeffler has TONS of experience with college-level offenses, is relatively young (43) and hungry for success, has worked with many successful QB’s (such as Tom Brady). Former Michigan QB, was around during the ‘97 NC year. Seems unassuming and willing to forgo the spotlight for JH.

I’m not looking for lights-out offense here. We can go the way with the defenses we’ve had. Just need some competent offense to eat up clock and not turn the ball over.

01/04/2018 - 6:02pm yeah why not

I’m seconding something that I originally posted, but I will posbang to amplify the echo chamber further.

01/04/2018 - 4:02pm Scott Loeffler

why not bring back another Michigan QB (and BC coach)?

12/14/2017 - 5:30pm congrats

and f*ck SI. They become less relevant each year (and as their site slows more slowly from all the ads and videos they make you watch).

12/14/2017 - 9:56am this could backfire on the telecom industry

Net neutrality gives ISPs reasonable cover since they have to treat all packets the same. Without NN, content providers will have an easier time suing them for allowing piracy and illegal streaming on their networks.

I read the thread title as Jeremy Piven. That would have been a sight to see on the sidelines.
