Younger brother got denied from Michigan (despite a 34 on his ACT and a top 10 class rank) and ended up at State. He's a freshman there now and is... doing great! I know it might suck in the moment, but where you go to college isn't the end of the world and I promise they'll be okay no matter what.

His offense did just put up 55 on our defense (not 62, 7 of them came from the deflected punt). A similar situation has worked out well for Lincoln Riley, but I don't know how well it will work for Ryan Day and I don't know how good of a recruiter he is.

Diag is 100% the move if you can get in early enough.

It's the internet, you can say the word "fuck" if you'd like. I won't tell your kids, I promise.

I'd be okay with never having to see Villanova ever again.

UVA, Georgia Tech, and Boston College

You're kidding, right? Louisville is a MUCH better job than any of those. It's a better job than UNC, too. I'll give you FSU, Clemson, VTech, and Miami.

If UCF beat Michigan head-to-head I'd say include them too.

Here's an idea: Watch it on silent with closed captioning on. There. It's like I transcribed it for you.

Rich Eisen hosts a radio show, so I'm not sure what you were expecting.

I legitimately do not think that Baumgardner gives a shit whether Michigan/Michigan State football/basketball do well or poorly. That's what makes him good at his job.

Of all the negative Michigan takes in the world, this may be the stupidest.

Fuck yeah. Excited to help!

Sparty fans call him a Michigan homer all the time. It seems like you haven't read anything he's written in quite awhile.

And nobody "forces" people to work minimum wage jobs. That doesn't mean the minimum wage shouldn't be hire.

Or for a more extreme example, no one "forces" people to work in sweatshops. If they don't like it, why don't they just go somewhere else?

I was very young at the time so I don't remember. Was it surprising that he resigned? Could he have gotten away with not resigning? Would he have been fired if he didn't resign?

To be clear, I think he's parodying what Zach Smith said about her.

FYI for those that can't see it, you may have to clear your cache first. Otherwise chrome will just pull in the cached image.

Exactly. If Jim Harbaugh can't turn Michigan into a national title contender... who can? And if there is someone that can, why would that person come to Michigan?

After the shit we've seen over the past decade-ish I'm just impressed that Brian is still covering football.

Northwestern beat Purdue and has a legitimately good front 7. Let's not overlook anyone here.

09/03/2018 - 1:01pm The play before the long…

The play before the long sack on the first drive saw JBB straight up ignore an outside rusher, leading to Patterson getting hit ~1.5 seconds after the snap. The sack on that 2nd and 2 play call saw him get beat cleanly by Hayes. Like, I don't think he even touched him.

09/03/2018 - 12:59pm They couldn't handle a 5 man…

They couldn't handle a 5 man rush. The play before the long sack (where the ball flew way up in the air) saw Bushell-Beatty just straight up ignore a player on his outside to help on the inside.

Just on a quick count, Patterson saw pressure <3 seconds after the snap on ~2/3rds of the plays. That's terrible, and there's no excuse for it.

09/03/2018 - 12:48pm This game was a categorical…

This game was a categorical failure on the part of the Offensive Line. Couldn't pick up a stunt, couldn't protect the edge, couldn't stop the DTs from compressing the pocket. Like, "Ole Miss vs. Bama last year" levels of bad.

It's embarrassing, really.

Patterson played really well given the circumstances.

I just... I only have a finite amount of rage to distribute. I can't get up in arms about not playing Minnesota most years.

I'll be honest that "Black" tattoo looks bad ass.

College football podcasts in order:

1. The Shutdown Fullcast: The EDSBS guys. Absolutely hilarious.

2. Podcast Ain't Played Nobody: Bill Connelly (SBNation's S&P+ guy) and Steven Godfrey (also of SBNation, him and Brian hate each other for some reason). Fun mix of numbers stuff and actual reporting, and they love deep dives into G5 shit if that's your thing.

3. Athlon Sports Cover 2 Podcast: Mitch Light and Braden Gall of Athlon. Very good podcast, they're more P5 heavy.

4. The Audible: Bruce Feldman and Stu Mandel, two of the best respected reporters in college football. They're great when it's just the two of them, but can be hit or miss with guests.

5. The Solid Verbal: Ty and Dan. They're pretty much the oldest in the business, they've been doing a podcast for >10 years. They're very meme-y, which is both a good thing and a bad thing (if you've ever heard of "Clemsoning" or "How to talk to your kids about an undefeated Iowa", those were both from them).

08/21/2018 - 4:38pm I've been listening to…

I've been listening to Brockhampton pretty much non-stop for the past month.


Edit: a few examples of their stuff:

1998 Truman





They vary wildly in tone from hip hop, R&B, contemporary, pop, rap, etc., oftentimes within the same song.

Edit edit:

If you like sarcastic Canadian folk music The Dead South is great.

 Or was our QB play so atrocious

Last I checked, how good your QB is directly factors in to how good your team is.

away from the main point I'm trying to make, so... *drops mike*)

*It's short for "microphone", so it's actually spelled "mic", not "mike".

In the NFL it's a little different, because you have to be good enough to play OLine size/technique wise to get drafted, etc.

We just don't have enough guys physically the right size to play OT, given that there's no guarantee that they'll "get it" mentally/technically.

This is seriously awesome. I keep meaning to refresh my data science skills, and this is going to give me the impetus to do it.

I'm impressed with his ability to control the flow of time to slow down his dunks and make them look cooler.

we eat the book

So do I send it back for you guys to eat it, or will you come to my apartment and consume it there for my viewing pleasure?

I don't know that outright excitement at the prospect that more incredibly shitty things happened is the proper attitude to take.

Bartons Simmons' voice is irritating to me, but he's one of the best scouting guys out there and likes Michigan so I choose to take his word as gospel.
