Dumb question, but how does the soccer...er, futbol game interfere with the barbeque at the big house.   Kinda hard to BBQ when 105k people are in the stadium?

K/P - Mike Gillette HAS to be on the list of the best instate.   He absolutely nailed punts to coffin corner and he's from SW corner which was completely left off the list (deservidly so).

In the B1G, only Ferentz, Fitz and Mork have been around for more than 7 yrs.

Neither has Urban or about 70% of the other coaches in America.

My boy Rob Pelinka still a Michigan man.

06/21/2018 - 3:56pm That's true of every brewery…

That's true of every brewery.   I have been to alot of tap rooms.   They always have beers that you can't buy in the stores.   Breweries bottle things that are marketable to the most people.  Niche beers are usually only on tap.

I love both Founders and Bells, but I can't get over that Founders most popular beer is that aweful Rubaeus.  Yech.

06/21/2018 - 3:44pm Really,  what's he-man beer?…

Really,  what's he-man beer?  Bud? Busch light draft?  IPA is just a kind of beer.  Some live it some don't.  I'd say sours are the new "in" thing.   Everyone is trying to make them,  but alot ate really bad.

Pollyanna is the best Chicago micro brew

Those are both great.   I love Right Brain in Traverse City and 3 Floyds in Indiana.

Favorite micro-micro brewery is Earnest is Toledo.

Maybe I'm just old, but Stan is one one my favorite.

06/21/2018 - 11:28am Well, I wouldn't say Hoke…

Well, I wouldn't say Hoke screwed up on not taking him.   He has done exactly nothing at Minn or CMU.   Would you have rather had Berkley or De'vion Smith?

06/21/2018 - 10:23am Unfortunate, but not…

Unfortunate, but not surprising.   Last summer I went in Moe's during Art Fair and there wasn't much there.

06/19/2018 - 12:23pm Nope, Wiltfong put his CB in…

Nope, Wiltfong put his CB in for Johnson to Wisky.  Not sure where you saw it to UM.

06/15/2018 - 7:55am Well, I guess that's a great…

Well, I guess that's a great theory if WRs and RBs are leaving because they get arrested or don't want to play, but if they are leaving for lack of PT it just means that Harbaugh recruited better players around them.  Evans and Higdon may be the best RB duo in the B1G this year.  It doesn't matter what their star ranking was or Walker's ranking.   As long as they have good RB's that's what matters.   Same goes for WR's.   Just because Harbaugh praises a WO doesnt' mean the rest of the WRs are crap.   Give the kid some credit for working hard and being a good player.

Interesting that Gores doesn't think Izzo is worthy.

06/01/2018 - 4:31pm That's the dumbest thing I

That's the dumbest thing I have ever heard.  I had to check to see if it was April Fools Day.  Why would a 70yr old coach with 40yrs in college go to the NBA and more importantly why would they want him.   A bunch of NBA player would not listen to him.

05/21/2018 - 4:39pm They had some really good (or

They had some really good (or god) players in the 70s and 80s, but they also had Ray Meyer.   As we all know a great coach goes a long way.   DePaul went in the dumps when his kid Joey took over.  Nepotism doesn't always work out in coaching.

Probably done by an MSU or OSU editor (or janitor) at NYT.

Or maybe by the time he gets here we won't be starting 3 Frosh OL.   Experience is a wonderful thing at OL.

I'm going to love watching him dominate in the NFL.  Never been a Raiders fan, but I am now.

05/02/2018 - 2:19pm I'm sure if you donate

I'm sure if you donate $10-$15k to UT they will gladly call you an alumnus or anything else you want to be called.  Heck, they'll probably call you the Space Emperor if you like.

05/02/2018 - 7:15am Geesh, I remember Rick's

Geesh, I remember Rick's Happy Hour $2 pitchers and Long Islands in the late '80s.  

04/24/2018 - 8:51am Don't forget Mike Gillette

Don't forget Mike Gillette was the kicker/punter and catcher.   However, what everyone is missing is that the NCAA scholarship rules changed.   A long time ago scholarships were unlimited.   The new rules would require a player to count against the FB  85 player limit AND the BB 12 player limit.

If a player was good enough for BB to use up an entire scholarship (almost every player only gets a partial) they would probably be drafted and playing in the big league.   This won't happen. 

04/24/2018 - 7:58am Henson never played Baseball

Henson never played Baseball at UM

04/24/2018 - 7:56am Nope, wrong.   He counts as a

Nope, wrong.   He counts as a full scholarship in football and baseball.   He would use one of baseball's 11.7 scholarships.   I doubt this will happen.

04/23/2018 - 4:37pm Ok, that was 40 yrs ago. 

Ok, that was 40 yrs ago.   There are always exceptions, but none in a long time.  Anything is possible and I wish him the best, but don't hold your breath.

04/23/2018 - 4:20pm It is going to be VERY hard

It is going to be VERY hard to play baseball and football.   Baseball practices and has scrimmages during the entire football season.

04/19/2018 - 4:14pm The way I see it the best

The way I see it the best schedule has:

Best teams 1-offs at Home - if you gotta play them might as well be at home

Worst teams 1-offs Away - don't want to play good teams at their site

Home/Away - If you happen to lose to a team on the road at least you will have a chance to get back at them at home.   We would have killed Nebraska at Crisler this year.  

I think next year the B1G is going to be pretty hard to predict, but could be worse than this year.

Other than us, MSU will be MSU.  They lose a lot, but have a good class.   Purdue will drop a little, but still have some talent and a very good coach.  Maryland has an incredible incoming class and a mediocre (ok, terrible) coach.   OSU loses a lot, but has a very good coach.   

After this group, IU, PSU, Nebraska and Wisky could be good.

The rest of the league is pretty much interchangeable.

 

04/19/2018 - 4:12pm MSU #6?!??!? 

MSU #6?!??!?  WTF.....seriously.

You do realize we are Fougless this year due to graduation.

You still need to MAKE the fair catch.  There are still a lot of muffed catches.

Kinda like how an intentional walk in baseball still needs to throw 4 pitches.   You never know what might go wrong. 

04/16/2018 - 2:40pm He's obviously a one and

He's obviously a one and done.  Don't know how much strength he can put on in 7 months.

04/11/2018 - 6:37pm Brian - from what I read a

Brian - from what I read a player can enter their name in the draft without hiring an agent twice and still be able to remove their name.

Mo can enter his name by 4/22 and remove his name by end of May.

04/10/2018 - 10:23pm The NCAA doesn't give a

The NCAA doesn't give a crap.  They would rather sweep all of this away quitely during the summer.
