Most teams would kill to be a "vulnerable" defending national champion stacked to the rafters with 5-star talent

Maybe they're having a hard time counting higher than 14 and it is confusing things.

My brother (Chicago) and I (Atlanta) were talking last night and neither have received.  Not complaining - just sharing for statistical purposes.

I watch Youtube TV and listen to old Bob Ufer tapes independent of what is happening in the game because while it is usually chaos when they do synch, it is magic.

Yikes!  Forgot about these.  As shown in the picture, they were so bad they made Ben Roethlisberger fall down at random.

Maybe singing Shania Twain's "I feel like a woman" will help process the sorrow?

 

Joking aside Aretha Franklin was an amazing unique talent and it is a sad loss.

I think this is a little unfair.  He took over Ford in May of 2017.  It's not like Ford's deep collective manufacturing knowledge walked out the door when he came in.  He was brought in because he has a track record of success in complex environments - which is a rare skillset.  Of course he needs to know manufacturing (and marketing and product development and customer segmentation and IT and supply chain and and and....); but just because he demonstrates broad thinking (science, theoretical physics, prod development, clock speed) and is clearly a visual thinker (communicates ideas in pictures vs 17 page long pdf files) doesn't mean he's not doing a good job.  It might all crash and burn but I don't see any evidence that he is cluelessly flailing.

Gerry DiNardo commenting on Michigan's team/coaching is sort of like Rosie O'Donnell talking about the comedy of Brian Regan or Jim Gaffigan or <insert your favorite comedian here>.... they can relate in a vague way but there own track record doesn't really approach they heights of those of whom they speak.

I have a wall hanging with images of Bo Brady and Harbaugh

also also my wide angle framed picture of Michigan Stadium taken during the under the lights 2 game against ND (2013 I think)

Thanks for sharing - fairly interesting read though not hugely revealing.  I was sort of surprised to see Arizona in the top 20.  I get Khalil Tate and all that but they were 7-6, lost the Foster Farms bowl, had a standard crap RichRod defense and have a new coach.  Maybe I'm missing something....

Always found the episodes with Sideshow Bob (voiced by Kelsey Grammar) to be pretty funny.  If I recall there is one scene where he has "Die Bart Die" tattooed on his chest and when confronted about it in court says it is German for "You Bart You" because all he thinks about is how to be good to Bart.  And a juror says "How can a man who speaks German be bad".....good times good times

I can't think of anything else that would reinforce the main point of the analysis than your emphasis to on-field results over all these "boring" character-aligned behavioral issues.  Who cares about character as long as we win games brah.....

And yes every UM fan badly wants to even the results or return to the "John Cooper is our favorite coach" days.  But not if we become a character cesspool in the process.

very high.  I don't know what scale I am supposed to use so I will score it an A.3

room to improve but so much better than the abattoir we endured starting in 2008 with a chance to be exceptional.

order lunch in advance from Zingerman's and pick it up to go

eat on the steps of the grad

walking tour north out of the diag to rackham/mlb/michigan league over to the hospital/hill area through the arb out past whatever frats through south u to the law quad/b-school into the union and then down to yost/schembechler to the stadium up main street into downtown ann arbor

then have dinner and go see someone at the ark assuming it is someone they'd care about.

Alex Karras w the Lions punched the horse as Mongo the pawn in game of life, and then became Webster's dad.

Noted Seth but I'd still take Drew Henson from 2000 over Devin

07/19/2018 - 1:54pm Good list and thanks for…

Good list and thanks for compiling.  My only real disagreement/change would be Drew Henson over Devin Gardner.  Devin had great courage and some great games but Drew Henson would have been a deserving Heisman trophy candidate in the 2001 season had he returned.

The word in SEC land is that Orgeron is safe this year and that the expectations come in next year.  Maybe.

I used YouTube TV to stream last year (ditched Sling) and found it to be a much better viewing experience thank Sling.  No buffering issues and no service issues  and I was able to see any UM game.  My only complaint is the looping of the same idiotic commercials but that is not a YouTube issue.  I highly recommend.

We ended up getting recommendations on a custom jeweler who did good work and had solid reputations (also met a guy who bragged his main clients were "pumps prostitutes and politicians" to which I said "sometimes you get that all in 1 person" but they didn't laugh).  There are some dubious characters out there so check up before you start working with someone unless you go to the mall which wasn't really quite the milieu we were pursuing...

also the color/clarity thing is valid up to a point - after a certain point (especially s clarity if I remember) you can't tell the difference without a microscope so not worth the extra cash for a higher rating

Such a likable guy - proud he went to this Michigan of ours

I upvoted you for your upvote because what the world needs now is, to quote the great philosophers Burt Bacharach and Hal David, love sweet love.

I picked Croatia to advance in our work bracket and think Modric is a really unique player but would like to see England get to the final.

Maybe an update on B1G visitor's locker room conditions

I thought it was great and appreciate the time and effort that go into it.  I also really enjoy the slightly tangential stories (e.g. history of the banner and the '42 UM:ND game).  It's a great preseason read and for anyone who is on the fence (if such a person exists) spending the time/money I highly recommend.

Even the series record against Texas.  Or Tennessee.  Maybe Kansas State.  Or Oklahoma.  I also wish we could have gotten a winning record against Iowa Pre-Flight before they stopped playing.
