05/20/2018 - 7:08pm Wyatt Earp starring Kevin

Wyatt Earp starring Kevin Costner is far better than Tombstone. Could never understand how anyone could prefer the latter unless you're just into sweet gunfights and jumpkicks and stuff like that.

Borges has the most brilliant schemes. He's a genius. Everyone else is just too stupid to see it.

Thought this might be Texam A&M, but it's looking like Loyola-Florida St-Houston

Ah, damn. Was so hoping we'd catch fire this game. Can't afford to go 2-12 from deep here. Feels like the dam is about to break.

Refs need to stop ruining this game. We're clearly outplaying them.

Just need our shots to fall and we can definitely win this game. Comes down to that, really.

Don't usually resort to this, but the refs are blatantly trying to keep Loyola in this game early. Total ticky tack nonfoul calls on both of Teske's and this one, while letting go hard contact on our guys on the other end.

Should have won the series in 2012. Should have won the series in 2006! So many missed chances the past decade. Now, I'm afraid the window is closed until who knows when.

02/25/2018 - 9:40pm Scotch is smoother than

Scotch is smoother than Bourbon or rye, in general, so it might be just your thing. With any new drink, I recommend getting two or three different (affordable) bottles that represent a spectrum of styles. That way, you can start to get a sense for the nuances and for what you like. For example, you could get one Highlands (e.g., Glenmorangie), one Speyside (e.g., Glenlivet), and one blend (e.g., Dewars) for about $100 and make a party out of it.

02/20/2018 - 5:58pm Kills to me to see two top-30

Kills to me to see two top-30 in-state kids not even considering Michigan. And worse yet, it's not even because Ohio State swooped in. Don't know how that can be construed as anything other than a major, major failure on the part of the Michigan coaching staff. 

02/19/2018 - 2:49pm You've got to admit that it

You've got to admit that it a'int look good, though. Zero commits among the top-10 in-staters (according to 247 composite), and we only lead (from a ballz perspective) on one of those guys. And this is one of the best in-state classes I can remember (based on recruiting rankings).

How's that in-state recruiting going for '19?

02/18/2018 - 4:12pm He's probably not as good as

He's probably not as good as he during his peak around 2005, but he's not far off. And I think against Nadal's style, he's actually better today: bigger racket, less backhand slice, more pinpoint serve.

A faculty vote of no-confidence in the BoT or president means absolutely nothing. Doesn't even make headlines anymore in most cases.

Yeah, but in 300 years when Mars is fully colonized, adding your car to what-will-then-be highly dense orbital debris is just selfish, man.

Love how little Glen's legs keep kicking helplessly in the air after Graham uproots him.

02/04/2018 - 7:32pm A vote of no confidence by

A vote of no confidence by college faculty means virtually nothing nowadays.

01/28/2018 - 7:51pm I found it kind of funny that

I found it kind of funny that Nadal was complaining to the press the other day about how the ATP needs to better protect the health of its players because so many guys are injured. Dude, Rafa, you’re 32. Historically, your tennis career should be over by now—a normal human being’s body will start to break down after 12+ years of professional tennis. Sampras, Borg, Edberg, Becker, and many other greats were all retired by Rafa’s age. Many more were still active but no longer serious competitors. Rafa’s salty because his main rival is defying age, but what Federer’s doing is insane and unprecedented. Rafa, Djoker, and Murray aren’t unlucky or being unfairly worked too hard. They’re just old (for pro tennis) and they’re bodies have about had it.

01/28/2018 - 4:44pm I think Fed is a step behind

I think Fed is a step behind his peak form now, but he's almost made up for it with the improved serve, his aggressive strategy of taking everything early, and going for his topspin backhand more. He straight up dominated Nadal last year with this new-ish approach. The awesome thing about his style now is that no one can emulate it because it requires a level of coordination and timing that only Federer possesses. Pretty cool to watch. He just stands right on the baseline and blats the ball back on the opponent before they can get comfortable.

01/28/2018 - 4:37pm Rafa was better head-to-head

Rafa was better head-to-head in their primes because of the coincidence of his strength (forehand) lining up directly with Federer's (relative) weakness (high ball to backhand). But, to me, Federer was and is a far better tennis player than Rafa.

01/28/2018 - 4:29pm Head size did not increase by

Head size did not increase by 2"+ during the course of his career. Not definitive evidence that he didn't use, but physical evidence nonetheless.

01/28/2018 - 7:23am Thought he was beat at the

Thought he was beat at the end of the 4th set. Cilic had seized control. Federer really had to scrap for that one. Just amazing what he's done the past 13 months.

I think he's waiting to retire until some nex gen guys show they can block Nadal and Djokovic from passing his records. Cilic could be one of those guys (though he's already 29), but Zverev, Thiem, Dimitrov, and all the other young guns haven't shown the mettle.

01/27/2018 - 12:47pm Never any evidence or reason

Never any evidence or reason to believe Drevno or Pep were out? How about their historically awful offense? Seems like a pretty damn good reason to believe that.

01/22/2018 - 12:18pm Go, Roger!

Go, Roger!

Oh, Berdych can definitely beat Federer. He's won about a quarter of the more than 20 matches they've played against each other, including some in Grand Slams. This will be a fight.

01/01/2018 - 3:59pm You'll get flak for this

You'll get flak for this criticism, but I thought Peters's father's intervention spoke volumes about the level of maturity Peters has. I just don't think he has what it takes to be a leader of men and a winner at Michigan. 

01/01/2018 - 3:46pm Wow, Peters is just a goddam

Wow, Peters is just a goddam mess. If Patterson is eligible this year, Peters's career at Michigan is, for all intents and purposes, over. Might be even if Patterson isn't eligible. I mean, if that's what you show after three weeks of practice for one particular team, you don't have it at the major college level. Just awful.

01/01/2018 - 3:36pm Peters will never play

Peters will never play another down at Michigan. Book it.

Elmer Lee was my everyday bourbon for years. $35 for excellent single barrel. Then all these brogans got into bourbon, and I haven't seen a bottle since 2014.
