So shines a good deed in a weary world. Or woooooo! Whichever.

I pine for 46.  Kindly fuck off.

Where is the ethical line...here's a picture of Saban's ethical line:

 

 

 

12/05/2018 - 6:13pm Hinton and Smith coming in…

Hinton and Smith coming in is nice.  However, as others note, it's not a bad thing to have other options in a position where often there are large humans rolling up your knees in ways they don't bend.

12/05/2018 - 10:54am Eli, you might want to…

Eli, you might want to contact Seth from the drop down at the top.  Points have been a bugger since the switch to the new site, but it seems lately they've been working.  Who knows...maybe it's just you and it's an easy correction he can effect?

12/03/2018 - 4:20pm Do you suppose, as I do,…

Do you suppose, as I do, that Don Brown will spend every waking minute the next 11 months perseverating about stopping quick slants and picks?  I'm thinking 37 will be enough unless Urban has a wrinkle to spring on us.

12/03/2018 - 3:39pm Dare, dare!

Dare, dare!

12/03/2018 - 12:43pm Thanks for the link.  So it…

Thanks for the link.  So it starts with what a Milwaukee reporter has "heard".  Looks like he's mostly hearing about Fitz, who in a million goddamn years wouldn't walk away from NU to coach in a ruthless situation in the NFL.  Set for life/beloved v. fired in two years...Hmmmm...

11/21/2018 - 3:30pm As NittanyFan points out, it…

As NittanyFan points out, it might not be so much CAN Penn State pony up as much as do they WANT to pony up?  If Frames leaves, the alums might blow a sigh.

11/17/2018 - 7:21pm Completely agree. He is BAD…

Completely agree. He is BAD at his job. 

11/14/2018 - 7:34pm Yep.  It's not too far from…

Yep.  It's not too far from where I maintain my chateau.  If anything, it's a little cooler here than Michigan.  The lake has quite the moderating influence, believe it or not, even many miles inland.  When I'd visit my mom in the Flint area, it was often 10 degrees warmer there than here in winter.

11/14/2018 - 6:00pm Points to you too for being…

Points to you too for being dismissive to me.  Well played, sir.

11/14/2018 - 10:05am Hermann's reply to Zach…

Hermann's reply to Zach Smith's Twitter rant on Sunday.  Point to him for being dismissive.

11/13/2018 - 11:35pm That and Big12 defenses.

That and Big12 defenses.

11/11/2018 - 1:03am I kind of liked Oliver in…

I kind of liked Oliver in his one sweep.  He returned punts in high school, so he might have the chops to pull it off.

11/10/2018 - 12:56pm Glad to see I’m not the only…

Glad to see I’m not the only who read this while dropping a deuce. Ah, privacy. 

Damn fine writing all around. 

11/08/2018 - 10:18pm Sheesh. That IS communist…

Sheesh. That IS communist football. 

11/08/2018 - 11:44am You're right.  It was 9…

You're right.  It was 9 years and two coaches ago, so the "state" part got lost in the haze.  So BSSU.

Also, you call the disease whatever you want.  I've got some oatmeal to eat.

11/08/2018 - 10:25am Man.  When I first came to…

Man.  When I first came to these parts, I got a chuckle out of Brian referring to Delaware as Baby Seal U.  Little did I know that BSU would be part of our conference schedule every year.  Thanks, Jim Delaney!

11/07/2018 - 7:53pm Needs more purple to be…

Needs more purple to be realistic. 

11/07/2018 - 7:49pm Shush, punkkid!  If they…

Shush, punkkid!  If they hear you, they'll kill points again to fix the thumbs.

11/07/2018 - 5:45pm I'll finally hit 5000.  I…

I'll finally hit 5000.  I can now die happy.

11/06/2018 - 1:35pm Who do you see taking Watson…

Who do you see taking Watson's position next year?  If both Hill and Long come back, then heh, but otherwise, one of the young guys will need to step in.  Does your trained eye have a guess?

11/05/2018 - 6:42pm Do you suppose that Harbaugh…

Do you suppose that Harbaugh wrote the one review on the site, about it running a little snug in the arms?

11/05/2018 - 4:55pm Well, sure, but that's like…

Well, sure, but that's like saying "Brimley, drink!"  The odds are as close to 100% as you can get I think.

11/05/2018 - 11:22am 1) His coach needs to be on…

1) His coach needs to be on the All-Name Team, coach edition. 

2) Hey, stargazers: do you think this staff might have earned the right to think they can spot someone who will help the team?

11/04/2018 - 11:55pm Eh. Don’t beat yourself up…

Eh. Don’t beat yourself up. MSU will eat up the Buckeyes’ awful run game and make it hard catch them anyway, even if that HAD been your intent in your analysis. Nice work, junior. I see a great future for you in the diarist biz. 

11/02/2018 - 2:00pm Maybe you left him off…

Maybe you left him off because OBVIOUSLY, but Keith Jackson, man...

Less obvious:  I remember enjoying Charlie Jones when I was a teenager.  It seemed like he always had some insane Raiders-Chargers game.  He was good.

It'll be interesting to see who rises from the current crop for people younger than I to say years from now, "Man, I liked the way they called a game."

10/30/2018 - 9:33am The #1 Mom Move is to roll…

The #1 Mom Move is to roll her eyes and continue watching This Is Us.  Trust me on this one.

10/29/2018 - 4:49pm Overthrowing the TE on the…

Overthrowing the TE on the trick play when he was 25 yards away from any living soul...Jeebus...  I told my son that even I complete that one.  Stanley was jaw droppingly bad.

10/26/2018 - 11:39am "Slightly better competition…

"Slightly better competition."  Don't believe the SEC PR machine.

10/24/2018 - 9:49am I like and respect Spielman…

I like and respect Spielman but I wonder if he thought Woody showed disrespect to the game when he had his guys tear down the banner.  I know Spielman was young when it happened, but his alma mater set a standard for pre-game trash and I've never heard anyone from Columbus hurrrumph about it.

10/24/2018 - 12:28am You’ve been here longer than…

You’ve been here longer than I have. You’ve seen what happened to people who got negged to a pulp. I’m happy you’re above it but tell me why we have points at all if they mean nothing. 

10/23/2018 - 7:49pm Points aren't working and…

Points aren't working and you can up or downvote if you have 100 points, so...we're kind of in this weird purgatory where we can pos and neg each other but it has nowhere the same psychological  impact as if your points either go up, or down to oblivion.

10/23/2018 - 5:22pm I like it but maybe put a…

I like it but maybe put a game in Ford Field.  Fuck Jerry World.

10/23/2018 - 4:28pm Absolutely highest respect! …

Absolutely highest respect!  Looking back to when he first signed: 1) MichiganMan24 said he knew him and that we'd be ecstatic with him (you were right, sir) and 2) Ferentz was livid when he flipped.  Ferentz knows a thing or two about tough, smart backs, so that was a good sign.

10/23/2018 - 10:31am As has been noted, our…

As has been noted, our offensive coordinator is Jim Harbaugh. 

10/21/2018 - 6:15pm I blame the reporters much…

I blame the reporters much less than the public.  People in general are far more interested in a show than insight.  OUTRAGE! is sooooomuch easier to do than careful reasoning.  This cuts across multiple areas/issues.  And this isn't new.  There's a reason the Roman leadership focused on bread and circuses.

10/21/2018 - 5:37pm Peters with a year of…

Peters with a year of experience under his belt has to be better as well.

10/21/2018 - 5:35pm Yes! on Milton.  We've read…

Yes! on Milton.  We've read a lot about how the guy has natural leadership abilities and great study habits.  Here's to his becoming one of Harbaugh's great finds.

10/21/2018 - 5:30pm I followed Higdon, but my…

I followed Higdon, but my son said "QB keep!" a couple of times before the cameraman and I figured it out.  Needless to say, I am very proud.

10/21/2018 - 10:44am Mantis, do you see him…

Mantis, do you see him biting on other offers in the inevitable major program firings that will happen?  Or is it Louisville or stay at Purdue in your opinion?

10/20/2018 - 9:17pm Earlier this year, it was…

Earlier this year, it was Mayfield at LT and Hudson at RT.  Or was that just to give Mayfield a little experience prior to redshirt shutdown?

10/18/2018 - 8:59pm And if he doesn't play, A…

And if he doesn't play, A_Maizing24, I can tell you that I don't have money, but what I do have are a particular set of skills.  Skills I have acquired over a very long time that allow me to hit the little thumb down thingie.  And that neg vote from Brimley will be a nightmare for you.

Or not.  Thanks for the info.

10/16/2018 - 4:21pm I don't know if this means…

I don't know if this means anything, but I added it up and Michigan has scored 14 TDs under 10 yards, 6 from 30 yards and over (one from 20-30 and 5!!! special team/defensive TDs).  My thought is that Michigan alternates wildly between grinding it out to set up 3 yard Higdon runs and striking quickly from long distance.  I didn't add it up, but it SEEMS that there have been more than a few big plays/returns that set up an exceptionally short field that skirts right over the 20-30 yard range.  So it's not so much that they suck when they set up between 20 and 30 yards so much as they skip it.  Or not (this analysis is pretty much from my anus).

10/15/2018 - 12:32pm Thanks!  Did he happen to…

Thanks!  Did he happen to mention what put him off, or was it a general, "Eh, bad fit," thing?  Just curious.

10/15/2018 - 11:15am Interesting.  Is the talk…

Interesting.  Is the talk you're hearing coming from the kids or message board stuff?  (I read Mgo and TTB exclusively, so I wouldn't know what's going on in the premiums)  Jim is eccentric, but I didn't think he was any more critical than other coaches.  In fact, I thought he is the opposite, where he doesn't rip people as a motivator, just tells them, "You're behind this guy and this guy.  Get to work if you want to play."  Am I wrong?

10/14/2018 - 10:56am Yikes, Hatter.  You hitting…

Yikes, Hatter.  You hitting it early this morning or is this just 18 hours straight drinking?  Either way, I tip my cap, sir.

10/14/2018 - 10:46am I'm thinking your sarcasm…

I'm thinking your sarcasm meter needs some recalibration.

10/14/2018 - 10:36am Ah, Blueseoul.  May he make…

Ah, Blueseoul.  May he make a triumphant return someday.  In the meantime, I mentally upvote this diary.  Nice work!
