09/16/2018 - 4:30pm Which tells you all you need…

Which tells you all you need to know about the efficacy of that ranking system.

09/11/2018 - 2:07pm I wrote this Op Ed piece for…

I wrote this Op Ed piece for the NYT last week, and...

09/09/2018 - 9:12pm Perfect answer. Nothing…

Perfect answer. Nothing succeeds like simplicity.

09/06/2018 - 3:45pm This will be followed by the…

This will be followed by the "all is well" thread if we beat WMU or the "what's going on" thread if we look bad or even lose.

I can't wait for the score thread for SMU or Rutgers.

5 straight top-ranked recruiting classes will do that for you...

Maybe we could lock him in a room with Grant Newsome for a while and have Grant explain the significance of his tweet.

09/03/2018 - 9:42pm Exactly.

The probability of…

Exactly.

The probability of Edwards catching a pass rose in concert with the difficulty of the catch. Easy passes were frustratingly dropped while circus catches became nearly automatic. 

09/03/2018 - 9:35pm Dan, put the /s and still…

Damn, put the /s and still got negged. 

Gonna be a long short week.

09/03/2018 - 9:34pm Yeah, "I'm sorry but..."…

Yeah, "I'm sorry but..." usually doesn't qualify as an apology. 

09/03/2018 - 9:31pm If not, just go out flaming…

If not, just go out flaming and come back as Steve Breaston maybe.

09/03/2018 - 9:29pm One game plus 10 years.

Oh,…

One game plus 10 years.

Oh, you were just talking about the awful football being played THIS year?

Then yes, one game.

09/03/2018 - 7:14pm Exactly. Objectively, people…

Exactly. Objectively, people are critical of the play. Unfortunately, often times the comments are critical of the player.

09/03/2018 - 7:11pm And as much as we'd love for…

And as much as we'd love for them to come here, why would they?

Nothing this team has accomplished in the last 10 years would convince a top athlete to come to Ann Arbor.  The last time we had a good team, most televisions were still square!

Too much mediocrity here and too much opportunity elsewhere. Harbaugh was the chosen one but he has failed. We have nowhere else to go now.

I wish it weren't so but it's time to stop wishing and hoping and just come to the realization that we are no longer relevant in college football.

09/02/2018 - 11:08pm Once again, we get our hopes…

Once again, we get our hopes up for our team only to be left down again. This team is no different than last year's version. 8-5 or 9-4. No titles. Such a disappointment....

08/28/2018 - 8:54am Exactly.  If we move from…

Exactly.  If we move from the cellar of offensive performance to just average, the defense will be immensely better than the outstanding D it was last year.

Of course, I expect better than average out of the offense though.  :-)

08/27/2018 - 9:25pm Jeff George to Nebraska?!

Jeff George to Nebraska?!

08/26/2018 - 2:13pm Black is definitely hurt but…

Black is definitely hurt but severity isn't known. Or the staff has a good idea but not saying yet.

Gary is also hurt but not sure if he's going to miss any time or just play through it like last year. 

Injuries happen and they suck. But really feel bad for Black if it means the season. 

08/25/2018 - 8:28am As I see this story around…

As I see this story around sports news websites, they say Michigan QB is transferring but he's wearing an Illinois uniform. Can he truly be considered a Michigan QB if there is no picture of him in a Wolverine uniform?!

08/24/2018 - 8:56pm He was here?

He was here?

08/18/2018 - 7:26am Really? I'm the first one to…

Really? I'm the first one to like this?! I'm freaking old!!

07/30/2018 - 10:10pm A Deloach in the hand is…

A Deloach in the hand is worth 2 in the Bush? 

07/29/2018 - 10:02pm It's not our fault they gave…

It's not our fault they gave so much for so little for so long. Now we're used to it. They spoiled us, so it's their fault for not giving us what they made us feel was standard in the first place.

07/24/2018 - 12:42pm So far? 7 out of 10.

No…

So far? 7 out of 10.

No national titles, no conference titles, no divisional titles.  Getting better and and will challenge very soon but up til now?  Meh.

07/15/2018 - 10:22am Definitely stay on budget…

Definitely stay on budget. Understand the gem you are buying is flawed. They ALL have flaws. Don't get sucked into thinking that you need a perfect stone.  If you need the jeweler's eyeglass to see any imperfections, then you are fine! Go for the whitest stone you can in the size you can. That's it.

Good luck.

Ok, getting used to the new site. I REALLY miss the "top" links to get to the top of the page. I hate scrolling. 

First world problem?

If you're gonna do it, do it when there is no down votes!! Lol. Not that I'm advocating for it, just sayin'. ?

Holy crap! I'm too old for this much change!!! But if I can add a gif or pic easier than before, then HELLZ YEAH!!!

06/04/2018 - 11:43am It COULD be rough...it's a

It COULD be rough...it's a tough schedule.  Still a lot of "ifs" out there.  If the OL improves, if we have a national average QB performance (or better), and if we aren't bit by the injury bug too badly...

...then yes, we could have a very good year!

Linda Ronstadt!

She sang rock, country, Latin, operatic songs, big band. Killer voice and hot as hell back in the day.

Not to mention, he never paid his coaching dues.  Never was an assistant?  What does he know about basketball?!

05/14/2018 - 12:09pm To be honest, they have a

To be honest, they have a larger more diverse class AND one with higher standards coming in.  It's harder to get into Michigan, so a lot of kids apply to MSU since they accept on a rolling basis.  A lot of Michigan schools are benefitting from performance creep.  As kids get better qualified, the fewer get accpeted to the top school in state.  Then all of the others get trickle-down admissions, lifitng the overall profiles of the schools.

I'm experiencing that now with my HS junior...

I have no idea what's happening here but I can't stop watching it!!

04/20/2018 - 3:05pm Good Q.
My final semester I

Good Q.

My final semester I had to take 20 credits to complete my grad requirements.  I had to get special permission, as did anyone who was taking more than 18 credit hours.

It was not easy and I didn't have to worry about sports or practices or meetings.

04/20/2018 - 3:02pm He had a good tourney but

He had a good tourney but he's not ready.  Go and find out; then come back for another year.  Be dominant!  And be a mid-round first rounder next draft.

04/19/2018 - 2:29pm I think it was posted

I think it was posted elsewhere.  He'll try in the fall but inevitably will be too injured to play again.  He'll switch to an academic scholly, graduate, and then go to Michigan Law School.

This kid is tough, smart, and beyond his years.  He's got a helluva future in front of him.

That's why Michigan goes for guys like him because the professional sports dream doesn't always come true.

Just sayin'
