Brian, I assume you're referring to Seveneves as the good book about the moon exploding?

Point 2 would make sense given that Bamba declared his interest for Michigan totally out of the blue.  Michigan had not really been recruiting him up to that point.

Does any tax revenue actually go to the athletic department?

This joke would be at least 200% better with "khakis" as Harbaugh's response.

08/15/2014 - 1:34pm They keep calling the people

They keep calling the people in charge on analyzing the data "sports scientists".  I can only imagine that the coaches regularly get reports like

"Jabrill Peppers can run 40 yards in 4.4 seconds.  That's faster than a gazelle running from a lion"

"Ondre Pipkins can bull rush with a force of 800 pounds.  That's as much force as a bullet impacting a kevlar vest"

If he shoots right, his left hand is at the top of his stick, with the back of the hand facing the shooter.

Only at Michigan could fans complain about a player having a legendary career because he was wearing the wrong jersey number.

I think it's quite unlikely that Eichel ever makes it to BU.  Almost every scouting report I've heard expects him to jump straight to the NHL.

02/23/2014 - 7:08pm Actually...

We lost our best player (a preseason All American) for the whole season and nobody here is making excuses.

02/19/2014 - 10:10pm Exactly!
What they would

Exactly!

What they would really need to measure is how often the offense got to the line and set in under 10 seconds, because once they're set, they don't need to snap the ball.  It the threat of snapping the ball that keeps the defense from subsituting.

02/10/2014 - 11:36pm I'm not sure why a school

I'm not sure why a school like Alabama would ever provide documentation that they "ran off" a player from their team.  Wouldn't that be tantamount to admitting that they're oversigning?

02/04/2014 - 5:09pm Do we know that they're

Do we know that they're getting rid of the Joe?  I always figured they'd just continue to use it in conjunction with Cobo.

I don't know if I believe that.  It sounded an awful lot like Peyton saying it.

Don't forget about Denard and Devin's Diamond of Doom.  They ran out of that formation before either was injured:

You'd rather see a rapist not face justice for his alleged crime than for OSU to play in the national championship?  I would contend that those priorities are not straight.

Let's consult the heuristics:

  • Position switch starter = Bad
  • Position switch starter who already starts at his other position = Really Bad
  • Position switch starter who already starts at this other position and his only backups are two freshman = Really Really Bad
  • Moving your starting senior quarterback to safety when his only backups are two freshman = 
09/14/2013 - 3:43pm Yeah, but Akron also sucks.

Yeah, but Akron also sucks.  They got blown out by UCF and almost lost to James Madison.

09/07/2013 - 3:06pm Can we throw back to the days

Can we throw back to the days when teams wore the same jersey the whole season?

09/05/2013 - 7:11pm For PhD students (who don't

For PhD students (who don't take classes) at least, tuition is little more than a made-up number.  If the department makes up a huge number like $50K and claims that it costs that much for a student to sit around and do independent research, then the department gets a bigger slice of the research-money pie.

So $50K is not a real expense.

Or if you run out of LBs you can just use your fullback for a starting LB, according to Mr. Meyer.

07/05/2013 - 11:23pm That's a different system.

That's a different system.  Central scouting uses the A, B, and C grades, which generally mean something like this:

 

A= potential 1st rounder 
B= potential 2nd or 3rd rounder 
C= potential 4th-6th rounder

07/05/2013 - 4:37pm Seriously.
Where did we get

Seriously.

Where did we get the idea that these moves would affect Helm?  He's always been a 3rd line center.  Weiss will be the 2nd line center.  This doesn't change anything for Helm at all, who is still under contract by the way.

05/27/2013 - 10:49am Also because local recruiting

Also because local recruiting is more of a zero sum game.  If we miss on a player from California, chances are that player will never play a game against us.  If we miss on a player from Michigan or Ohio, he'll probably be playing against us the next 4 years.
