06/11/2018 - 5:44pm American War by Omar El…

American War by Omar El Akkad is a good fiction book that came out last year that tells the story of the second American Civil War from the point of view of one family caught up in the conflict. Set in the middle part of this century.

Beilein keeps it together, but I hadn't noticed Luke Yaklich completely losing his cool on the sidelines before. So much fun.

I've never been to Australia, but I'm going to guess I'd rather be in Adelaide than in Lincoln, NE too.

04/17/2018 - 10:01am Groninger

My roommate and I called him The Bricklayer. We came up with an idea that the marketing staff should hand out maize foam bricks so fans could build things during the game based on number of shots he missed. Apparently he was a nice guy though.

What Izzo knows they got away with while they were on campus.

03/28/2018 - 2:38pm That line

"We were in pajamas the other day, so it's not a physical thing," probably needs to be the new site tagline after basketball season ends. 

03/22/2018 - 1:34pm That's ironic.

My guess is CBS/TBS didn't want to lose that coveted Montana Mountain Time prime-time audience.

Correct. Dutcher joined Fischer’s staff in ‘89-‘90.

03/08/2018 - 1:52pm The Izzo gif

Needs to be titled, "Thoughts and prayers to the victims."

02/06/2018 - 4:45pm I see what you did there.

I see what you did there.

02/05/2018 - 1:37pm I don't think so.

It looked like it deflected behind the players toward the back of the end zone. Dorsett was near the goal line, IIRC.

02/05/2018 - 1:21pm In all 3 of the Pats' SB losses

with Brady at QB, he's led a 4th-quarter go-ahead drive only to see the defense give it right back.

01/29/2018 - 2:46pm The Drive for 5

Late 80s-early 90s Detroit Drive. 4 championships, and 6 consecutive Arena Bowls in 6 seasons.

12/11/2017 - 2:25pm Such a weird play

I still don't understand how that play resulted in a torn ACL especially considering his leg wasn't planted on the ground when he got hit.

12/11/2017 - 1:12pm John Faulk?

Who on the M football support staff has what appears to be a DuckTales tattoo on their left hand?

11/30/2017 - 2:08pm NC State, two years ago.

NC State, two years ago. Prior to that, it was at Bradley in 2012. Outside of the B1G/ACC Challenge M hardly ever plays true road non-conference games. Crazy.

You don't think Harbaugh would choose the neck Sharpie?

11/20/2017 - 2:30pm This is probably the number

This is probably the number one reason Gruden hasn't returned to coaching. The dude knows he would have to personally interact with referees on a weekly basis. Don't even mention the tuck rule to him.

11/20/2017 - 2:21pm 0-2 in '87, and 4-0 in Bo's

0-2 in '87, and 4-0 in Bo's last two years. But those were the Perles Spartans and Bruce/Cooper Buckeyes.

Looked like a concussion to me. Purdue guy rocked Speight square on the back of the head.

09/06/2017 - 5:34pm Aside from catching the ball

Aside from catching the ball and redzone action, is the view from those field-level suites any good? I have to imagine people end up watching most of the game on TV in the suites behind the benches.

Number 80's reaction is great too after Furbush denies him a shot at the recovery.

Sounded more like Kenneth Parcell from 30 Rock to me.

08/13/2017 - 7:35pm Don't forget '88

'88 at OSU when Kolesar picked up all 100 yards of the game-winning drive.

Benedict Emberbatch?

Bump Elliot? 

05/21/2017 - 10:01pm They don't sell the seats in

They don't sell the seats in the far end zone anymore and haven't for several years.

05/18/2017 - 2:44pm When it came out it was

When it came out it was widely reviewed as two solo albums packaged as Outkast. IMO The Love Below was really good. I probably listened to Speakerboxxx by itself once or twice.

Gus is a Michigan fan.

05/11/2017 - 3:15pm You forgot

Manu Manu The Slender and his famous "I'm going to go out and get some poi" sack celebration. Quite possibly Rob Schneider's best role too, and no, I'm not forgetting about "Judge Dredd" or "The Animal".

04/17/2017 - 3:04pm Don't forget MSU in '99

Don't forget MSU in '99, where M was down 27-10 entering the 4th quarter. Brady led three scoring drives over 75-yards were basically him throwing on every down only to lose 34-31 because the D also gave up a 4th-quarter as well.

03/31/2017 - 6:05pm On Walton's last shot

vs Oregon, DJ Wilson starts to follow the shot but then just stops and watches. If DJ keeps going after it, he might at least get a chance at a tip. Bell has the position on him but you never know.

03/30/2017 - 4:42pm April in the D

Does FSD still do the song contest? That was god awful. 

Last year both the Pistons and Wings made the playoffs but I was trying to think of the last "true" April in The D, during which both the Pistons and Wings had meaningful playoffs runs. Prior to 2016, 2009 was the last time both teams made the playoffs. The Wings lost in 7 games to the Penguins in the Finals but the Pistons were swept out of the first round by Cleveland. After that, the Pistons were blown up and the Wings slow fade began.  

So, 2008, then is the last truly meaningful April in the D. The Pistons got to their 6th consecutive Conference finals and the Wings won their last cup of the Ilitch era.

03/30/2017 - 4:05pm I know some people love him,

But between "tools of intelligence" and him doing half the game with his mouth full, I don't like listening to Price at all.

03/24/2017 - 1:08pm Two new banners?

The B1G Tournament banner, yes, but I hope we're not hanging a Sweet 16 banner. That shouldn't be a thing.

03/14/2017 - 4:01pm Watch the bench

They're all primed for another outburst and are totally flabbergasted. Fred Wright-Jones immediately goes hand-over-mouth, Dakich & X are frozen locked arm and arm, and Chris Hunter looks liked he's going to bust up laughing too.

03/01/2017 - 9:25pm NW

has Chris Collins Duke stink on them now which makes them more obnoxious. I definitely saw a couple of floor slaps. The Duke-ishness is creeping in.

02/15/2017 - 12:25pm They were going to call it

They were going to call it Everybody Hates Chris but that was already taken.

02/08/2017 - 3:01pm You are correct.

Michigan is 2 for their last 27 at Indiana - a stretch which pre-dates the Fab 5 - with wins coming in 1995 & 2009. The Fab 5 was 1-3 overall vs. Indiana. Their loss there in 1993 was a particularly crushing 92-93 affair, which featured some brutal foul calls down the stretch as I remember, and ended up costing M a share of the B1G title. Michigan hasn't won back-to-back games at Assembly Hall since '85-'86. 

That was a depressing fact check.

Harry Doyle should get in on the merits of using a little Jim Beam behind the ear as cologne.

Mind blown, too! Since when has anyone gone to Rick's at a time of day when it was plausibly time to eat? And furthermore, ordered a salad?
