So 11 recruits in the Rivals 250...not bad!

At first glance, II that low seems pretty crazy IMO.  But then I see every other album listed and I can see why someone would prefer them.  Personally, I'd put II higher (I love Ramble On and WIAWHNB) and drop House down a bit.  Other than OTHAFA and Rain Song there isn't a ton on that one that I get really fired up about.

I saw Page & Plant at the Palace in either 96 or 97.  It was a good show, but I imagine not nearly as good as in their prime Zeppelin.

Mellon Collie is just tremendous...so underrated.  

01/11/2019 - 3:11pm Good shit, Jedd.

Good shit, Jedd.

Is that a wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man!

Love this team...would like to see a few more minutes go to the bench guys however.  Not sure why we can't get brooks 10 minutes per game and try to find 5 or so for Johns.  I have a feeling that at some important moment we will need them and I am nervous about the lack of time they get.  Just nitpicking, thought.  First world problems!

I also got the reference and felt badly about it.

01/07/2019 - 12:44pm I get that we have a little…

I get that we have a little bit of fatigue with this particular match up and that the current system is not ideal.  However, they are clearly the two best teams in the country this year and the system has resulted in them playing for a national title.  I have a hard time getting too riled up right now.

Excellent perspective...exactly how I feel.

01/06/2019 - 8:45pm My big takeaway...Brandon…

My big takeaway...Brandon Johns looked really good out there!  Didn't look like a freshman, much less one who hasn't seen much of the court yet.  If he turns into a guy who can give you 8-12 solid minutes this rotation will be something else.  Eight deep of guys with size, length and positional flexibility.  Going into the postseason with a starting five of Z, Poole, Matthews, Iggy, Teske backed up by Brooks, Livers and Johns...sounds good to me!

I have two boys, ages 6 and 9.  I've been getting each of them a set of Topps baseball cards for Christmas every year since they were born.  Oddly enough, the darn cards don't come in order, so for a few nights each year in December I have to sort the 700 cards (x2) and then put them into binders so they can look at them without destroying or losing.  I also prepare a kid-level summary of the baseball season for them (playoff results, standings, statistical leaders, etc.).

Honestly, I probably do it more for me than for them (I'm a huge baseball fan and was a collector of cards in the 90s).  But I will say it has really helped them enjoy the sport.  I will catch them flipping through the cards quite often, and they can rattle off stats and players better than I can. 

Long story short, cards still exist and people still buy them.

I'm so confused...photo on one post is a white dude, photo on this post is an african american dude.  Which one is JD Johnson?

I'll drink a dick-shaped can of poop-flavored lemonade if he commits.

I'm intrigued by B1G or Bust and his/her pledge to eat dick flavored, lemon shaped candy.  I wonder where one might find that.  Meijer?

Damnit Brian, it's been an hour!  You said 45 minutes!   

11/29/2018 - 8:39am NO!  Why would they take a…

NO!  Why would they take a 10-2 michigan team over an 11-2 OSU team with a head to head throttling?

11/27/2018 - 12:07pm Haskins is arguably (or…

Haskins is arguably (or perhaps in-arguably) the best STATISTICAL passing QB in Big Ten history, but let's not confuse that with best passing QB in Big Ten history.  Drew Brees probably has that honor sewn up.  

11/27/2018 - 8:24am I have less than zero…

I have less than zero interest in it and will not be watching.

11/14/2018 - 1:08pm But if OSU is doing the…

But if OSU is doing the exact same thing, isn't the net effect zero?

11/14/2018 - 1:04pm Oops!  I assumed they played…

Oops!  I assumed they played nine.  

11/14/2018 - 1:00pm Would it really make a…

Would it really make a difference if OSU was also playing Huckabuck State the week before they played us?

11/14/2018 - 12:59pm They play conference games…

They play conference games in weeks 1 or 2 while we are playing the WMUs and SMUs of the world, so what difference does it make?  We all play 9 conference games.  

11/13/2018 - 4:02pm The case for not ranking us…

The case for not ranking us ahead of them:

They beat us, they are undefeated.

I like their argument better than yours.

Penn State is well coached at nothing, so we've got that going for us!

11/01/2018 - 5:09pm Culver's is the most…

Culver's is the most mainstream fast food-ish restaurant that I have never eaten at.  Not sure why that is.  

11/01/2018 - 5:08pm You'll be fine.  96 is never…

You'll be fine.  96 is never an issue, 23 is usually light until right around the M14 interchange.  Should take you no more than 2.5 hours to get into a spot, so you'll have 45 minutes to get into the stadium.

11/01/2018 - 1:11pm Ok, now I get it.  

Ok, now I get it.

What exactly are you looking for us to do here?

11/01/2018 - 7:54am Not sure why you are getting…

Not sure why you are getting downvoted...what you say makes perfect sense.

All cryptic news is positive news, just like all off-season weight gain is good weight gain and all off-season weight loss is good weight loss.

All cryptic news is positive news, just like all off-season weight gain is good weight gain.

That is certainly a fair point, and I largely agree with your take on what the likely response would be.  I'm just armchair beat reporting.

10/30/2018 - 9:22am Why do reports insist on…

Why do reports insist on having every "question" start with "Talk about..."

So lazy and not at all a way to get interesting or detailed responses.  How difficult would it be to ask something a bit more specific.  Something like "Trace McSorley seems to excel when he gets outside of the pocket and free-lances a bit.  How do you approach a player like him differently than a more traditional pocket passer?" 

Even if it still gets a stock answer, at least it is a more interesting question than "talk about Trace McSorley." 

10/25/2018 - 2:40pm Nice investigative reporting!

Nice investigative reporting!

10/25/2018 - 1:46pm Something doesn't seem right…

Something doesn't seem right in the Michigan - Michigan State box score.  Unless we are in some odd dimension where math works differently than I think it does, isn't 20 + 0 + -46 = -26?  

10/24/2018 - 8:02am Definitely take him!  I have…

Definitely take him!  I have two boys, currently ages 6 and 9.  I've been taking them for years, starting at age 3 or so and they love it!  Just plan on getting lots of popcorn.

10/23/2018 - 2:28pm I disagree, only because I…

I disagree, only because I feel UGA could beat Bama in the SEC title game and then we would have a 12-1 Bama and a 12-1 UGA to worry about.  Florida would get hamblasted by Bama, and would leave us with only Bama to worry about from the SEC.  All of this assumes Bama beats LSU, of course.

In Grand Rapids it is currently thunder, lightning, rain, hail.  And it’s on the way to east Lansing.

Just give me a call and I'll facetime my tv.  Number is 269.328.7448

Grizzly peak is a good mix of old & young, IMO.  Good beer, has a college feel, but not too college.  Big enough that you can usually get a table with a modest wait.  Has been around long enough to be real Ann Arbor.

At least they spelled 'MSU' correctly

I come for the Michigan football content, but I stay for the insightful historical commentary.

Barstool is a complete and utter cesspool.  morally reprehensible, run by a sexist, bullying piece of crap.  The journalistic equivalent of a drunken MSU frat bro

Lombardi is definitely an idiot.  But he wrote a book called 'Gridiron Genius.'  Life is full of irony.

I listen to almost all the sports content on the Ringer, but Dual Threat (the Rusillo podcast) isn't one that I have found enjoyable yet.  I really like all the Simmons, NBA and MLB pods, most of the NFL pods (except the Dantasy Football show), and I get a chuckle out of One Shining Podcast.  For whatever reason I just haven't gotten into Rusillo.

Did you mean that the other way?  I’m pretty sure anyone would take 3 Winovich over Gary
