08/30/2010 - 6:58pm yeah i was wondering that,

yeah i was wondering that, too.  i was about to ask if anyone knew of bars in barcelona that would show the notre dame game (i'll be there then), but didn't want to be the third in a row..

12/22/2009 - 10:01am video

the one thing i like about my rivals account is the videos of practice, player quotes, etc.

10/01/2009 - 12:20pm Your blog is amazingly

Your blog is amazingly refreshing to read compared to other blogs out there -keep it up. but while you're here, I've got two questions for you:

1. How do you think your UFR will compare with Brian's (post MSU-UM game)? I'm not trying to insinuate that one is better, but rather I'm curious to see how much bias will show through from each side. While neither UFR grades out opposing players, I wonder if both sides will have more/less the same notes on the game despite the blinding fan goggles we all wear.
2. What's your honest-to-god prediction for the game?

10/01/2009 - 10:34am yeah

i was thinking the exact same thing, it will be very interesting to compare. Although, if I'm not mistaken, the UFRs don't really grade out opposing players...

10/01/2009 - 10:11am Indeed

theonlycolors.com is a good blog i read daily. They modeled (and named) their UFR after Brian's and include a lot of the same metrics. Worth checking out:

Whatever you read, thanks goes to BlueSeoul for taking the time to create his own UFR.

09/22/2009 - 4:04pm yeah

i would never actually bring that up in the extremely off chance i got to chat with him. what would i expect, a high five?

09/22/2009 - 2:47pm awesome

today is my birthday and now i've got a killer ice-breaker for when i meet him.

09/18/2009 - 10:14am crazy

i've met him, too.

09/16/2009 - 11:57am other way around

he's only going to visit michigan, officially. he's solid

09/13/2009 - 12:05pm yeah i agree

i actually came away NOT thinking the guy was a smug 'cali-cool' asshole -in fact, i kind of liked him. are my feelings wrong?

09/10/2009 - 9:17pm aw, fuck you man.
no i kid,

aw, fuck you man.

no i kid, but i do appreciate the extreme knowledge recall by the mgopatrons.

09/10/2009 - 9:09pm i didn't see it, brah. you

i didn't see it, brah. you got a link?

09/01/2009 - 1:47pm I just watched a video

I just watched a video interview of Devin on Rivals (believe it's behind a paywall) after his team's loss, and I've got to say it was impressive. He was hurt with back spasms in the week leading up to, and during, the game. I couldn't tell if the pained expression on his face was from being hurt, his team's loss, or just his neutral face, but it really made me feel for the guy. The interviewer asked Devin how he would rate his own performance and he just looked back at him like he was crazy, exclaiming, "We lost. I have to improve everything." This kid really is better than you.

08/24/2009 - 12:17pm it must have been brutal for

it must have been brutal for you to have been a fan pre-RR when you say:

"I’d prefer to watch a dynamic game-breaker than an effective game-manager"

07/23/2009 - 3:20pm take the bet

or give me your buddy's info as i would be glad to

07/23/2009 - 3:09pm and the second play

i feel good about it

07/13/2009 - 1:36pm ive got a strange take

i live in NYC and have the unfortunate pleasure of meeting lots of ND folk and can honestly say i have yet to meet a decent irish fan. pompous, harks-back-to-ye-olde-days-in-yankee-esque-fashion... you know the drill.

while OSU types are a different brand of nasty, they are off plowing the field or sister or whatever they do in Ohio so i don't have much interaction with them. Also, they are largely illiterate and can't take to the internet except in hilarious broken english comments

But i do have a strange affinity for MSU. perhaps its because they contain the word 'michigan' and out here, where college sports mean zip, i find myself silently rooting for the team all my friends confuse with U of M anyway.

Beyond that, i think it's stupid to not root for the B10 as it only helps Michigan.

06/11/2009 - 4:05pm i don't know if him being gay

i don't know if him being gay is really that pertinent

06/11/2009 - 9:52am this is a larger topic but....

do you think portions of the spread will ever work in the nfl? the 'wildcat' formation crept up here and there, but was that a one year kind of thing? i personally see it being tinkered with this year (a la pat white under parcell) and down the road.

06/11/2009 - 9:49am third try

third try

06/10/2009 - 12:03pm yeah

I think that he was trying to say that condemning people to hell based on their sexual preference is becoming less fashionable these days. No doubt there's a large group of people (majority?) who are not for gay-marriage, but are at least capable of an intelligent discussion on the matter and cringe at the sight of that pastor who protests military funerals out in witchita.

I don't know that i'm too worried that Riemersma will become a true 'face of the program' and scare off recruits, though...

06/10/2009 - 10:00am not to start a flame war

but the dude is further out there than pat robertson.

06/08/2009 - 4:44pm HA!

i just had a good laugh. that was funny

05/19/2009 - 11:00am thank you, sir

just checked it out - awesome

05/19/2009 - 10:01am recruiting

i doubt you'd get a candid answer on this - but i'd be curious to know if the deluge of offers he's throwing out to (seemingly) everyone is a product of his time at wvu and not being able to be very selective. or perhaps its just how he does things regardless of what school's logo he's got on his shirt.

05/08/2009 - 9:55am dude...

Your closing is annoyingly ironic...

04/30/2009 - 4:36pm This kid is fast

I just watched a video of him on rivals and he is all kinds of fast. Excellent player based on the flimsy knowledge of football I have and 30 seconds of video.

03/31/2009 - 11:17am sheridonya

i bet a few years ago there was a post saying roughly the same thing about nick sheridan...

03/26/2009 - 5:47pm Gutierrez

I've often wondered whether Matt Gutierrez's shoulder injury was a blessing in disguise for M football (Henne went on to have a pretty solid freshman year/four year starter as a result). But maybe Gutierrez, sans injury, would've been a better quarterback that year and allowed Henne a year to grow and develop.
I can see how this isn't a great parallel to draw to our current Sheridan and Forcier situation, but it's just a thought.

03/25/2009 - 9:45am unbelievable

I love going to herloyalsons.com- it's like watching the o'reilly factor (not to get too political).

01/27/2009 - 5:55pm hilarious

this is easily the funniest post i've seen in awhile. chitownblue's fear of this dude really being d-sharp is palpable.

10/09/2008 - 9:49am i think they should cancel the football program
