Prediction: 90% reduction in player cramping, 100% reduction in threads started to complain about players cramping.

I was gonna get out the torches and pitchforks for what you said about Star Wars but the Rutgers double feature is just gold.

09/20/2018 - 10:29am If he hadn't made that pic…

If he hadn't made that pick and in particular if he hadn't scored, the second half would have had a lot more of a "oh no here we go again" feel to it.

09/18/2018 - 4:05pm Why don't we play 9 more…

Why don't we play 9 more games and ask again?  What's the point in even wondering at this point in the season?

09/17/2018 - 3:33pm I'm concerned if we have to…

I'm concerned if we have to face Martinez for half a game without Khaleke Hudson.  If Martinez can't go, not so much.

09/17/2018 - 3:24pm For me the worst was SMU's…

For me the worst was SMU's first scoring drive in the third quarter:

Pass interference call prolongs drive after 3rd and 10 incompletion in spite of ball being clearly uncatchable out of bounds.

Targetting call on Hudson (which BTW the play by play guys praised as a good hit before the stoppage), but only after whistling the next play dead and going to review.

Kinnel goes out with an injury

Pass interference on Hill (more like legal jam at line + run of the mill handfighting)

SMU timeout to avoid Delay of Game (full media time out)

End zone fade ruled incomplete, reviewed, upheld 

Finally, SMU touchdown.  Real world time: approximately 20 minutes.  


And then we get the ball back and score in two plays.

Maybe there needs to be some sort of open call for a few more mods?  I'm sure there's some good people you've overlooked with the time and energy to deal with moderation duties


I mean, you'd need some kind of screening/interview to make sure the new mods you were signing up weren't going to make the situation even worse, but...

09/11/2018 - 12:39pm If the courts find these…

If the courts find these claims to be true, Perles has got to be headed to jail, right?

09/10/2018 - 2:28pm I hate to say it but I think…

I hate to say it but I think the first boos of the game were for Runyan specifically.  I haven't seen a replay so this is just going on memory, but as I recall the defensive end put on an inside spin move and Runyan might as well have not been there at all.  Immediate pressure forced a dumpoff for nothing and a punt.  It was sort of a "oh god we can't even slow down Western's pass rush, let alone a good team's" moment.  Obviously things got better.


09/10/2018 - 1:02pm I think maybe they need to…

I think maybe they need to tweak their Left Tackle Coefficient a little bit.  Not sure we're #7 at this point.

No line for MSU vs. Bye Week?  Bets on if they can get through it without anybody being arrested?

09/10/2018 - 11:22am Whaaaaat I thought it was…

Whaaaaat I thought it was going to be 3:30 or possibly even a night game.

09/09/2018 - 7:48pm Was initially disappointed…

Was initially disappointed in our relatively low number of sacks for the game.  In watching the replay, WMU was using five linemen and two backs to block on many of their pass plays, and half the time the QB still had to rush his throw.

09/06/2018 - 2:13pm I mean it's pretty simple. …

I mean it's pretty simple.  If it got enough yards it was a good play.  If it didn't get enough yards it was a bad play and we should get on the internet and yell about it.

09/05/2018 - 8:16pm Consider:

It is 2016…


It is 2016 Michigan vs. Michigan State.  Michigan is handling State although the score remains fairly close.  In a spite-fueled final drive State finally scores a touchdown with one second left to narrow the Wolverine lead to 30-23.  Dantonio turns the spite up to eleven and orders a two point conversion, which backfires spectacularly when Jabrill Peppers intercepts the pass and runs it all the way back for the final two Michigan points.

The final score, 32-23, is a nine-point margin of victory and thus is not included in this statistic for UM or MSU.

If Dantonio had just kicked an extra point, or missed the extra point, or anything else BESIDES a defensive touchdown, it IS a one score game, and Harbaugh's numbers get slightly better while Dantonio's get slightly worse.  But thanks to Sparty spite and Peppers salting the wounds, it doesn't count.

Kind of makes it look like a dumb statistic.


08/24/2018 - 2:17pm Oh good we're all…

Oh good we're all collectively assholes, not just individually.  

08/22/2018 - 3:50pm Somebody needs to check if…

Somebody needs to check if the Columbus police are rolling out in the tactical gear or not.  That's when you know shit's about to hit the fan.

But yeah that was my take as well.

The $2,200 bill was for "sex toys, male apparel and photography equipment".  I could imagine the photography equipment made up the bulk of the dollar value.  One wonders exactly what he was doing with that particular combination of goods.  I could speculate but this here is a family blog.

So... if Urban Meyer did handle the situation correctly, as it appears OSU is going to claim... SOMEBODY screwed up to allow an abuser to remain on staff for at least a couple years after incidents occurred and were reported.  Right?  Somebody's got to take the blame.  Athletic Director?  Some other patsy?

08/20/2018 - 1:10pm This thread is going to turn…

This thread is going to turn into another one of those Cheez-It vs. Cheese Nips flame wars, and the mods will have to lock everything down.  Happens every time.

08/16/2018 - 12:50pm I am starting to think this…

I am starting to think this team is going to be like the mighty firedrake Smaug from The Hobbit: majestic, terrifyingly powerful, but with one glaring weakness.

If he's trying to keep the band together it's a bad statement.  If he's going down and trying to extract his pound of flesh from the university on the way out the door, it's a solid statement.

Kid Rock song.  THE Kid Rock song, really.

Yeah but Jim Harbaugh has some weird nutritional theories.  That's probably what we should focus on.

I like cultivate but I swear half the time I go in there I'm the only guy without a man bun.  Feel a little out of place.

I need more coffee.

This was 15 years ago but the students working at the Subway in the basement of the Union had a BLATENT disregard for the guidelines on how much stuff they're supposed to put in a sub.  Ask for everything and you'd basically end up with two subs worth of stuff crammed into one bun.

The Heidelberg has free chicken wings and nachos from 5-7pm on Friday (unless they've changed recently).  That used to be 90% of my Friday caloric intake. 

04/12/2018 - 3:22pm I imagine every Michigan game

I imagine every Michigan game is still going to find its way onto one Comcast channel or another, at least in the local area... This is going to be a blow to the Minnesotas and Illinoises of the conference, though.

04/10/2018 - 11:39am It has ranged, though. Hoke

It has ranged, though. Hoke spring "games" were mostly drills and limited contact offense vs defense exercises with unintelligible scoring rules. Last couple Harbaugh spring games have been a lot closer to regular football, minus special teams.

If you put yourself in the mindset of the time period I imagine this law was written, if she had been married they probably would have hauled her off for adultery.  


Seriously I did a little more reading.  Best as I can tell this law is Section 750.532 of Act 328 of 1931 of the Michigan Penal code.  It's tucked in there between "it's a felony to injure someone during an attempted bank robbery" and "it's a misdemeanor to operate a slaughterhouse within 20 rods of a highway".

Yes, rods.  

03/27/2018 - 12:59pm I think when the news broke

I think when the news broke yesterday that he was being arrested, we assumed that it was for failure to investigate/act in regards to what Nassar was doing, like what put the PSU higher ups in jail.


But this... is much worse.

538 has UCONN at a 77% chance to win the entire women's tournament.  By comparison the highest for the men is Villanova, at 20%. 


There seems to be a huge amount of talent disparity in women's sports.

You guys do remember that Gary Moeller went 8-4 each of his last two seasons, right?

01/28/2018 - 2:17am call me a cynic but I don't

call me a cynic but I don't think State fires their most successful football and basketball coaches of all time simply because of a "culture problem".  There'd have to be real honest "a crime was committed by this specific individual we legally can't ignore it" for that to happen.

01/28/2018 - 1:27am I'll be the first to admit it

I'll be the first to admit it if I'm wrong, but I don't see Dantonio or Izzo getting forced out over this.  Unless the new investations find paper trails showing them deliberately ignoring / actively covering up sexual assaults, they'll be fine.

I would think he'd be a better fit with the Vikings, given his proclivity for turning purple.

"I hope that the right person was convicted"

What in the shit is that supposed to be?  Is Izzo seriously expressing doubt that they got the right guy?  I can't believe he would say that but I don't know how else to interpret that statement.

"We've been accused of being tone-deaf. That wasn't tone deaf. THIS is tone deaf!"

01/19/2018 - 1:35pm No, it's not normal. 

No, it's not normal.  Although it's not normal for a criminal to have 100+ victims of serious crimes, either.  In this particular case though I believe one article said that this situation was one of the conditions of his plea deal.

01/18/2018 - 1:25pm Apparently it's a condition

Apparently it's a condition of his plea bargin.

01/08/2018 - 1:38pm I'm seeing some rumbling on

I'm seeing some rumbling on the net that Nagy scripted some early stuff for the Chiefs game against the Titans but then turned play calling back over to Reid.  Of course the Chiefs offense started hot and then fell off a cliff.


Shades of M vs OSU 2015 when it seemed like DJ Durkin spent a lot more time working on his head coaching resume than he did game planning for OSU's offense.

Now that UFRs are sponsored, I believe Brian is obligated to do the UFRs sooner or later.  For the Ohio State game, it definitely trends towards "later".  Like, maybe in the spring or summer.

I feel like my opinion of this film in the long term will depend on how well Episode IX builds on it and ends the story.

I remember feeling the same way after watching the second Matrix movie and we all know how that turned out.


The extended starship chase made no sense - why didn't the First Order send some of its ships on a short hyperspace jump in front of the fleeing resistance?
