06/13/2018 - 3:47pm My history degree worked out…

My history degree worked out just fine. In fact, learning how to analyze information critically is probably the number one skill needed in today's marketplace. Knowing there is not a simple answer to everything is infinitely valuable.

06/13/2018 - 3:45pm Agreed. I originally did…

Agreed. I originally did Comm because they killed Journalism while I was mid-degree, but it lead to successful stint in marketing (writer then creative director then VP level). 

05/29/2018 - 6:37pm heard Charles was gone

figured no one left to laugh in his face

04/03/2018 - 12:44pm There was definite fatigue...

...but not from Monday, it was from scrapping so hard Saturday night to come back. Nova got a big lead and despite not playing more subs (top 6 played 28+ minutes in a blowout win), they cruised to the win.

BUT...our shooting was either hot or cold this year and it's a testament to Yaklich that we ever got this far with a below average shooting team.

Imagine last year's offense with this year's defense. Wow. We might see that next year. 

04/03/2018 - 7:27am hello post

Great FT shooter...he can recover it

04/02/2018 - 10:08pm wrong guys taking 3s

Don't need Z or Charles launching. they can't guard the rim. Drive to win. yaklich needs to tighten up wrinkles weight is showing.

04/01/2018 - 9:49am That and KU

wasn't even trying to close out, they just turned to look for a rebound that was not forthcoming

03/31/2018 - 7:18pm worst part about the lack of fouls on them...

they get TONS of fouls called normally...they are physical but getting away with it.

even moser talked about pushing moe more in second half ("get into his legs") - they pushed him and got away with it in the first

03/31/2018 - 7:14pm It's not our first time playing a touch defense either

Michigan playing like they've never seen the bright lights before.

03/31/2018 - 7:14pm It's not our first time playing a touch defense either

Michigan playing like they've never seen the bright lights before.

03/31/2018 - 6:49pm We are rushing...

No patience on offense, need to tire their defenders

03/29/2018 - 1:50pm he should transfer down

to D2 and light it up...or Europe but he will never get better under Izzo

03/28/2018 - 4:32pm Not aging well...

Gentlemen, anyone want any takebacks?

This is why hot takes suck.

03/25/2018 - 6:31pm gorgeous

was worried, since as soon as I turned it on, BU tied it at 3 (sorry, all), but seeing these two late goals has been beautiful

03/25/2018 - 9:34am great eight was normal

throughout the 80s into early 90s ..palace even used to host an early season tournament of the tourney great eight the following year.

elite eight was a ESPN/CBS invention in early 90s that took years to gain acceptance

03/25/2018 - 12:16am ku still had shot

to win it but missed

03/08/2018 - 8:56am Best juxtaposition...

Teske hits the jumper, the Purdue radio audio says "WHO knew that he would be their star in this first half?"...

...immediately cuts to slow sip of coffee from JB. 


03/01/2018 - 1:04pm images and quotes

very different than names

names are fine, as it is information publicly available - images and quotes are owned by the person legally speaking

02/28/2018 - 9:27pm Sanders...

looking very Waltonesque Burkian right now

02/19/2018 - 11:48pm not ordained yet...

but I'm fucking cool with it

02/14/2018 - 3:11pm was driving by

bellarmine during game, was confused thought it was here not in michigan...was excited then disappointed

01/30/2018 - 8:47am reading the way

she was disrespected and forced out by blubbering idiots Perles, McPherson and Ferguson, the culture that allowed Nassar was alive and well before him. she hired Izzo so MSU owes her one...even if he goes down with the whole university

01/21/2018 - 4:15pm agree

once per post max - good jokes wear thin when overused to this degree

01/12/2018 - 4:08pm Donnal LOL

Man - those rankings are just crazy for him. He even redshirted (not redshirted) his freshman year. He's like the anti-Caris.

01/12/2018 - 2:32pm Explains a lot of our struggles

When protecting a lead late. By milking the clock, you are putting your offense into a situation where its shot efficiency is going to be brutal.

01/09/2018 - 6:45am turtling

This game showed that playing not to lose will make you lose. Smart (like, really) coached way we've been critical of Harbaugh. It taught me Bama gets the breaks (pass off Hands head, 4th down TD pass not intended for Ridley, etc.).

01/08/2018 - 8:44pm that will likely...

hit the fan promptly

01/08/2018 - 3:48pm never heard this one at the family get-togethers...

why not?

01/02/2018 - 10:50pm were up 18 in first half

48-30 before the 6-0 Hawkeye run that threatened to portend a Columbus-like implosion.

Outscored 27-38 after that point but did enough to scrap out a good road conference win.

01/01/2018 - 3:07pm has a blown hold call ever swung a game so fast?

Gary has sack on 3rd & 17 if not blatantly held. massive swing.

01/01/2018 - 2:55pm That was a pure Harbaugh call

All Jim on that McKeon fumble play

12/29/2017 - 7:55pm frontrunning

he always sides with prevalent wisdom

So now he's a sparty until they go back to 3-9

12/29/2017 - 7:53pm and it was by some 14 year olds

and he claimed bunch of huge gangbangers with guns

racist ass clown

12/26/2017 - 9:46pm second that on the Livery

miss it every day now that I'm in Louisville.

12/23/2017 - 8:59pm I need to try this

Just found out that my boss's husband is their master distiller.

12/01/2017 - 6:17am hey

some of the good guys live here too...keep the bashing to Putino and the cards pls

11/27/2017 - 2:06pm woods returned

and was possibly issue 9n all 3 runs of late td drive. seemed out of position and late to diagnose...which is fair for a safety with scarce pt so far

11/24/2017 - 9:52pm I'll take

11/21/2017 - 8:35am matthews and wagner

starting to feel like Manny and sims

only win when others contribute

11/13/2017 - 7:23am growing up, the Browns were my AFC team...

I'm a Lions fan too. Though to be fair, the Browns in the 80s were fun to watch, except in AFC title games. Sigh.

11/12/2017 - 6:45am very analogous to 2017 msu game...

Even the 4-point losses were similar, continued offensive futility due to turnovers, incredible defensive play to keep us in the game, we shouldn't have a chance to win in. Both sad results.

11/10/2017 - 9:08am I commented on that word too...

because I jumped on the blog to take a break from my seminary paper only to read exegesis on the UFR. -2 Brian

10/28/2017 - 6:51pm there's no way that's a catch

did not habe possesdion until he hit ground out of bounds

10/24/2017 - 3:24pm Not happy

scheduled our annual family game bc no chance it'd be a night game...or so I figured...we usually do likely noon kicks. We drive in from multiple locations and have 5 kids attending, most over 10 at least. will be a tough tailgate and even tougher drive home

10/05/2017 - 4:40pm humorous anecdote

I used to work for a marketing agency. We'd often visit our main client (Whirlpool) and walk through their office spaces to go to meetings. The first floor housed lots of the brand managers, and other more junior clients, while the upper floors had more of the management groups. Walking through the first floor with a colleague, he noticed how many had MSU stuff up in their cubicles. He tried to rib me a bit, and said, "So many State fans here, where are all the Michigan fans?"

I replied: "Upstairs."

09/19/2017 - 12:21pm expecting a return to mean

much like a great start in an isolated stat isn't sustainable so a bad performance metric won't always stay terrible - or on a short way - I remain patient

09/09/2017 - 12:36am same here

going to feel like a lush to my seat neighbors when I show up to msu & osu

09/06/2017 - 8:51pm and Louisville

surprised to find one here

09/06/2017 - 11:46am haha

Just moved this summer and in the process I found all the student ticket stubs from 97, too. I was a 5th year junior at the time. I can't seem to find my Rose Bowl ticket stub though. So sad.

Particularly proud of the fact that one of the marshmallows Corso threw backward in that clip is mine. I hit him on the right shoulder a couple minutes before and it bounced onto the desk in front of him. Haha.

I LOVED when GameDay was inside the concourse like that. Super fun. Of course, it started at 11 am back then, not 5 am like these days.
