I would upvote this if I could.

That's probably a pretty mainstream opinion now.  

06/13/2018 - 9:47am Predictable.

Ditto. Beatles are overrated. 

05/09/2018 - 10:40am Wow. That's a lot of data.

Not sure what to do with it or what conclusions you can ultimately draw. 

FWIW, I grew an inch in college (6' > 6'1"). 

04/12/2018 - 9:42pm No

They weren't.

03/22/2018 - 2:47pm I think they get the variance concept

to keep it poker terms, they're not playing a cash game, where bad variance means you re-buy after busting.  Another bad shooting game means it'll be a slog.   

03/20/2018 - 9:02am Gotta make the shots

If they shoot 25% from three, they're toast.  35% vs 25% on 20 3PA is two more threes.  Those 6 points will be pivotal in what I expect will be a close game.

We all need to eat more bacon. 

03/16/2018 - 8:43am Screaming?

Didn't notice. Then again, I watch the games with the volume way down.  The announcers VERY rarely add any real insight into the game, and more often then not, will say something stupid and just get me riled up.  Wife is much happier as well.  

03/05/2018 - 1:38pm Those first few paragraphs

are the most disgusting thing I've ever read.  And I'm okay with it, because nails.

03/03/2018 - 9:23pm says it all right there

Simpson hitting free throws gave me the warm fuzzies. 

02/23/2018 - 1:07pm Nice avatar!

They kicked butt in figure skating.

02/16/2018 - 1:39pm Dobbins numbers

Good heavens. 

01/29/2018 - 3:27pm Yep.

He got his first career point recently. 

01/22/2018 - 9:08am Nice game from Robinson

I don't think I'll ever not snicker when I read "Cable Subscribers".

01/11/2018 - 11:45am Keep on keepin' on

Man, you can write.  Good stuff.

01/03/2018 - 10:51am I was over it at half-time

Had a feeling it wasn't going to end well, so I went outside and played pond hockey with my son and nephews. 

01/02/2018 - 11:06am Defenses last two years

Defenses have been the best in the last 25 years, save for 1997 and 2006.  Two position groups have been subpar: QB and O-Line.  As you note, other teams have been able to overcome some of the youth / talent issues, but Michigan has struggled.  Fault seems to fall on the coaches. 

01/02/2018 - 10:57am Turnovers

Conversely, turnovers were the only reason UM had a half-time lead. 

12/05/2017 - 12:34pm "Dave Kingman cut"

I bet a few younger readers had to google that reference.  This Gen-X'er appreciated the reference.

12/01/2017 - 11:32am Great write-up

I learned something yet again.  And this:

"Nobody gets to frippery their way to a win in the greatest rivalry in sports. You have to play some goddamn football."

11/28/2017 - 1:18pm 1977 Ford LTD

Those things were tanks. 

11/16/2017 - 10:46am Probably should read MSU

But I'm too lazy to check.

11/14/2017 - 2:53pm Bingo

My back hurts just watching.

11/18/2016 - 11:38am 38-16 UM

Harbaugh conquers #chaosteam

10/25/2016 - 9:05am Command & Conquer

Was the bomb.  Good to see Speight make a leap forward.  Just need the O-line to hold up. 

09/15/2016 - 10:01am 43-19 Michigan

Beat the Buffs!

05/13/2016 - 11:04am I'd advise using a management company.

Managing a property long-distance will be a hassle.  From finding tenants, to collecting rent, to managing repairs, it will be a big time-suck and hassle to try to manage from Michigan.  We moved from Ypsi to Chelsea 4 years ago and used a local company to manage the old house as a rental until the market got better to sell, and it was the best decision.  The 10% rent per month was worth it. 

04/26/2016 - 10:36am 6 years in a row

Michigan has finished first every year from 2011 forward, per a comment in the thread on EDSBS. 

01/19/2016 - 12:53pm 1993 Fored Probe GT

My first new car out of college.  Had it less than 2 years when it was stolen in Ann Arbor ( I was living in Signature Villa apartments by Briarwood). 

01/06/2016 - 8:59am Will get a good education

Have we confirmed whether Harbaugh has the Ron Swanson pyramid of greatness hanging in his office?

11/06/2015 - 12:13pm Average weight 166!!

Good heavens, in 1911, at 6'1" and 170 lbs, I'd be what, an offensive tackle?  Now I'm a too-skinny WR/CB. 

10/16/2015 - 9:22am Chessun is fast, but Peppers

Watch Peppers block on the KO return, and then he catches up to Chessun!

10/08/2015 - 2:26pm UM 16 NW 3

Lewis with a pick. 

10/02/2015 - 11:09am Stuff like this is why I'm here

"and—finally—tight ends roaming the open plains of the American Midwest, wondering where all the people went."

10/01/2015 - 2:23pm Lane donuts

"Michigan's pass rush rattled Mangum to the point where he was doing Spike Albrecht Lane Donuts™ in the pocket."


Oh how enjoyable it is to watch this defensive line. 

09/24/2015 - 8:27am 24-13 UM

Go blue.

09/18/2015 - 8:53am 44 - 0 Michigan

Shutout? Why not!

09/11/2015 - 11:25am We have eerily similar avatars

Separated at birth?

09/10/2015 - 8:33am 23-10 UM

23-10 M

09/03/2015 - 1:13pm UTAH 20 - UM 17

Excited, but I got a bad feeling. 

04/14/2015 - 12:53pm Was thinking the same thing

Looks like a generic two-bedroom condo / apartment.

01/23/2015 - 12:44pm I'm fired up

After watching the Harbaugh! clip. 

01/04/2015 - 1:25pm Bengals no confidence

4th and 3 at Indy 40 and they punt.

12/10/2014 - 12:50pm 2015: Can't get here fast enough.

When does softball season start?

12/09/2014 - 4:19pm 3rd round.

He can be a tough match up for linebackers.  Needs better route running. 

11/29/2014 - 9:42pm Yep.

Awful. Lot of points left on the field for Auburn. Let's see if it bites them.

11/29/2014 - 9:37pm Double covered

Coats made a play.

11/25/2014 - 12:18pm Downfield blocks by WR's

They are a thing of beauty. And are often the difference between 20 yard gain and taking it to the house.
