06/07/2018 - 4:49pm Beyonce is overrated in all…

Beyonce is overrated in all aspects.  I'm not saying she's terrible, but people treat her like some kind of goddess/queen when she is an average pop star.

 

06/01/2018 - 9:27am Not American and not a coach but...

This reminds me of Nico Rosberg retiring five days after winning the F1 championship.  Someone at the very top of their sport stepping down out of nowhere.  

 

 

05/27/2018 - 9:07am Speaking of movies...

It has nothing to do with Russia at all but I saw Sicario last night and it was awesome. Can't wait for the sequel.

05/25/2018 - 3:09pm Lame

Detroit getting a MLS team is the only way I will ever really get into soccer (outside of the WC).  It's great if you have a rooting interest but I just haven't been able to get emotionally invested in a random MLS or Euro team.  

05/25/2018 - 3:00pm Congrats!  I have a three and

Congrats!  I have a three and a half year old son and a daughter due in less than a month.  One thing I heard that stuck with me is that the first three months or so of a baby's life is the "fourth trimester".  They are no longer in the womb but they need time to figure how life out here works.  

05/25/2018 - 12:39pm Just win!

Hell, if we beat Ohio State 2-0 no one would complain.

05/25/2018 - 9:46am 3 day weekend coming up,

3 day weekend coming up, beautiful day here... phones are already dead at my office and it's 9:45am.  

05/25/2018 - 9:31am If everything was the same

If everything was the same last year except we had 23 passing TDs instead of 9 that would bring our points per game to 32.77.  That's a good offense would put us right around where Wisconsin was last year, which I think is a realistic place for us to be. 

Of course there are so many other variables and who knows what will really happen in 2018, but I think 23 passing TDs is certainly in the realm of possibility.

05/23/2018 - 9:23pm I don't think anyone has

I don't think anyone has mentioned the awful GM ads with the "focus groups" and that bearded douchbag. They have been going on for years and aggravate the hell out of me.

05/19/2018 - 1:44pm Good luck to him

Johnny should probably stay away from Hess Village

05/18/2018 - 1:00pm Hell yea

I'm in for this, unfortunatly we don't have any more royals here and I could never convince my Canadian friends that it was time to throw off the yoke of oppression.  

05/18/2018 - 10:57am I bought the track jacket in

I bought the track jacket in the first round of Jordan gear.  It's great, I wear it all the time in the fall and spring.  Hopefully it holds up another year since I don't see anything to replace it with yet!

05/18/2018 - 8:30am +1 for cruise

I randomly decided to take a cruise with my wife in 2013 and then became obsessed with them.  My first one went to Roatan, Belize, Costa Maya and Cozumel.  There is a lot of info out there, but the key is to get a balcony and you're set.

05/02/2018 - 3:53pm We should have been playing

We should have been playing Call of Duty for the inside info... so much time wasted on Counterstrike!

02/13/2018 - 10:31am In general I agree, whenever

In general I agree, whenever a vendor brings donuts into my office the filled ones either get eaten last or tossed out. 

However I still like Pacskis.  Since they are more solid than a typical jelly donut the ratio works out better IMO.

02/13/2018 - 9:36am Yea it sucks

An article in Investors Business Dailey about nutrition that starts with Woody Allen?  Hard pass.

02/13/2018 - 8:11am McAdoo

When I think of Ben McAdoo I think of two things:

1) Guy who threw Eli under the bus after the Giants lost to the Lions

2) Dumb slicked back hair

 

 

02/12/2018 - 4:48pm Good for them

But of the all the things we should or could be wringing our hands about I would put spring game attendance near the bottom of the list.  

02/11/2018 - 8:23pm YNAB

YNAB is amazing, my wife and I have used it for the last 5+ years. It's great, I love being able to allocate money into categories and save for big purchases over several months.

However while I still recommend YNAB my understanding is that the latest version has a monthly fee. One of the nice things about YNAB is that it helps identify and cut out monthly expenses. A fee for YNAB itself seems counterintuitive.

02/08/2018 - 3:19pm Good

Stafford as highest paid player was a hot-take jumping off point for lazy ESPN hacks.  Get ready for the Jimmy G as highest paid player hot takes!

02/08/2018 - 1:18pm IT

He didn't fit in with the Cavs but still crazy that he got shipped out so fast.

02/08/2018 - 1:12pm Hyped

I'm drinking the Pistons Kool-Aid... get ready for the NBA Finals in the D!

02/08/2018 - 12:53pm As an American living in

As an American living in Canada the '02 Olympics were unbearable.  Only cool thing was seeing Yzerman, Shanahan, Chelios and Hull all on the ice together after the gold medal game.  

01/26/2018 - 4:32pm I'm triggered

I absolutely hate this, the two slightly different Ds were an awesome quirk of the Tigers uniform.  Don't mess with a classic!  

01/26/2018 - 1:54pm Wow

ESPN just dropped a nuke on the MSU athletic program.  Good luck to their next AD, they need someone who will clean house... or tear the house down.

01/26/2018 - 8:58am I started the week in the ER

I started the week in the ER late Sunday night / early Monday morning for my 3 year old son's breathing, then back to the pediatrician Wednesday morning after he spiked a 103.5 temperate.  The little guy is resting up and feeling better now which is the most important thing, but in a shocking twist I somehow got sick mystelf after spending hours around sick kids.

01/26/2018 - 8:42am I rolled my eyes at the

I rolled my eyes at the "never trust a Sparty" crowd but they were right in the end.  

01/25/2018 - 12:39pm McMahon sold $100 million

McMahon sold $100 million worth of his personal WWE stock to fund the new company.

"A fool and his money are soon parted"

01/23/2018 - 1:44pm Here's an idea

This Joel Ferguson guy needs to shut up.  If you are associated with MSU maybe just don't say anything about Nassar instead of opening up your mouth and sounding like an idiot.

01/23/2018 - 1:32pm It happened before

In 2013 Kelly interviewed with the Eagles and got a new contract that summer even though the two events were completely unrelated according to Swarbrick.

01/22/2018 - 3:33pm Thanks

I didn't realize McGrone got the fifth star, good for him.

01/22/2018 - 3:22pm Excuse my ignorance

But I didn't think we had any 5-star recruits in this year's class?

01/22/2018 - 11:48am Yup

Just look at Chip Kelly.  Fired after 2-14 with the 49ers and had his pick in college.  Plus Meyer has three NCs and Chip has zero.  Unless there is a Sandusky level scandal lurking there is no way that Meyer's career will be destroyed.

01/19/2018 - 3:12pm I blame Clay Travis

Schiano was Friday's lead recruiter, he should be in Rocky Top right now.  

01/10/2018 - 4:22pm Friiiiiiddaaaaaaayyy!!!!

01/09/2018 - 3:51pm Sounds awesome

They should be in a full tilt battle against Notre Dame players, you could have it done for kickoff next year.

01/09/2018 - 10:20am Good point, I don't remember

Good point, I don't remember hearing anything about race when Odor threw that haymaker at Bautista.  Just two guys settling it on the field which is part of baseball culture.

01/07/2018 - 4:19pm Jerry and my grandfather went

Jerry and my grandfather went to high school in Danville IL together, sad to hear that he passed away.

01/05/2018 - 2:11pm Don't know yet

The whole offensive coaching situation is going to take some time to sort itself out.  At least we are starting to see some peices comes together.

01/05/2018 - 8:53am Schedule

The last game of the schedule is the same every year and if we can figure out a way to win it on a semi regular basis (1 out of 3 years would be ok at this point) we will be fine.

01/04/2018 - 12:15pm I found this quote from the

I found this quote from the Boston College SBNation fan site "BC Interruption" after he left for Cinci last year:

 

This is... pretty bad. Al Washington is one of BC football’s most important coaches, in particular with his ability to sell the school and bring in some of the Eagles’ best recruits. 

01/03/2018 - 3:01pm You certainly can, I just

You certainly can, I just think as a fanbase we tend to glorify the past a bit too much.  That tide might be turning now based on the replies here.  

 

01/03/2018 - 1:11pm Double post

Blah

01/03/2018 - 1:11pm Yea

Let's embrace the crappy feeling of a dissapointing 8-5 season and come back stronger next year.  Comforting ourselves with the glories of years past doesn't do much good.  

01/03/2018 - 9:54am I agree, we need coaches that

I agree, we need coaches that can recruit at a high level.  That is why I was excited when Greg Schiano was going to be the head coach at Tenn, say what you want about the guy but he can recruit.  Now after the UT meltdown he'll be at Ohio State another couple years, lucky us.

01/03/2018 - 9:42am Sucks

That's a bummer, I was rooting for him at Arizona.  I also don't see them getting anyone better so it's a lose/lose situation.

 

01/02/2018 - 11:21am MGoNihilism

I can't agree with the nihilism take because it's only when we lose that Michigan football doesn't matter.  If we win a national championship I doubt Brian would say that it's a meaningless distraction.

01/01/2018 - 9:44pm USC vs Tex

USC vs Tex is still #1. The game was amazing plus USC entering with a 30-something game win streak and losing... incredible. Reggie Bush and VY were two of the most exciting players ever, that game had it all.

Having said that UGA vs OU was great, I hope UGA beats the Sugar Bowl winner.

01/01/2018 - 6:48pm Wow

That play that Oklahoma just scored on was sick.
