I remember when Dantonio received many kudos for landing Blackwell, and how he was going to be a force to be reckoned with on the recruiting trail (which he undoubtedly was for a time).  My how things have changed.

In other news, ELPD just ordered several gross of traffic citation carbons, citing a significant increase in anticipated demand

I'd rather MSU lose to OSU and OSU lose to Maryland

Political maybe, but the proposal had some decent bipartisan support from what I saw in my circle.

11/06/2018 - 7:39am There are Michigan defenders… There are Michigan defenders running in all directions on every snap, but they all know exactly where they’re going. You could call them robots, but they violate the First Law of Robotics on every play.

Izzo will flame out in the first weekend, but MSU will still be top ten in next year's preseason rankings

Well there's at least one in GR, one in East Lansing, and presumably several in metro Detroit

You got drunk after the MSU game?  I got drunk after the MSU game too!!  Weird

Is ND still paying him though?  Serious question

I may be missing something, but doesn't a two loss LSU most definitely get excluded, allowing Michigan to tak that fourth spot?

Rob Deer.  The ultimate all or nothing hitter in baseball history

The assholes in Traverse City who are behind the pointless lifestyle brand M-22 didn't invent their logo either, but they were able to trademark it.

As a Yooper, I find troll geographical designations to be fundamentally flawed.  I wouldn't call anything south of Petoskey "Northern Michigan".

Imagine if the Wolverines went after every team that uses a variation of the winged helmet.

Pinconning in Northern Michigan?  That's a fairly expansive definition of Northern.

I've just bought local corned beef and desalinated it and smoked it.  Louie's in Traverse City is great.  But you've inspired me to make some pastrami this weekend!

10/21/2018 - 10:34am Exactly.  There has been an…

Exactly.  There has been an imbalance in the intensity that surrounds this game since Rich Rod was here.  How else do you explain even shitty Hoke teams playing OSU down to the wire, but getting pushed around the field by MSU.  The intra-state hate is intense, as every person living in Michigan knows.  Sparty have been bold lately, with occasional strangers calling me out in public for my M gear, Sparty flags popping up on houses everywhere, Sparty gear on the backs of the majority of kids in the schools.  It's time we matched the hate.  I'm all on board.

10/16/2018 - 11:49pm Man my favorite thing lately…

Man my favorite thing lately is how sports media constantly defer to Scott Frost.  

"It's going to be a long, hard, painful road for Nebraska under Scott Frost, filled with humiliation, losses and roster and staff attrition for the foreseeable future.  But you know he's going to turn it around soon."

I was at that Toledo game.  It was terrible.  Multiple children were seen crying around the stadium.  Nonetheless, I still had faith.

 

The PSU game killed it for me.  I listened to it while I applied window insulating plastic to the outside of my windows on my old house.  Don't ask.  I was drinking a lot.  Towards the end of the game I fell off a ladder and sustained some serious injuries.  Dark days.

Whenever Martellus has a big day, Aubrey Thomas is sure to have one too!

I don't think anyone is ignoring the largest come-from-behind victory of the Harbaugh era.

Gotta go.  I have to go brag about national championships won before my birth to random Sparty.

I would also imagine he could sell them on the lax enforcement of academic standards.  And, um, other laws as well which current public events would indicate I should not be joking about.

When I worked at the Campus Inn and did breakfasts he was the only guy on the team who came across as a vindictive asshole.  When he started showing up on TV I thought he must have matured and that maybe I just saw a bad side of him then.  But no.  He's an asshole through and through.

10/04/2018 - 12:04am That's a fair point you…

That's a fair point you raise.  However, when we've been excited about assistant coaches in the past, like Nuss, it's almost always been a preseason infatuation that died as soon as the rubber met the road.  With Ed here we are falling love with him as we slowly discover his endearing qualities.

09/30/2018 - 8:26am I know what you mean.  At…

I know what you mean.  At the end of their scoring drives he was jumping around like a fat kid who just randomly asked his mom if they could go to Chuckie Cheese on a Wednesday night and against all odds she somehow said yes.

We've seen this behavior out of him before, except in that game where Jehu returned the opening kickoff and we were up like 56-0 at the end of the first quarter.  He didn't jump around too much that day.

He needs to figure out how to just congratulate his players when they do something great and not lose his shit emotionally.  Plus he should change his 1956 buzzcut.

 

09/23/2018 - 12:07pm Well to be fair Adrian…

Well to be fair Adrian Martinez, destroyer of worlds is their quarterback.  It would be kind of hard not to be scared.

 

Seriously though.  The FS1 crew gave us a case study in the persistence of media narratives.  Martinez is a dynamic playmaker damnit, and Frost has Nebraska on the right track, despite the fact that they showed no evidence of being fundamentally sound or disciplined.

What I really want to know though is how does Holly Sonders get into her jeans.  Do they paint them on or do they pour her into them?

09/13/2018 - 8:30pm It's crazy how mediocre Wake…

It's crazy how mediocre Wake Forest is on defense though.  They toss the ball to Dillon on the right hand side and nobody can even reach him until he runs 20 yards.

I made this recipe myself using Halloumi.  It was darn good

09/09/2018 - 3:14am She looks exactly like every…

She looks exactly like every 30-40 year old Sparty woman that I know.  She's probably a school psychologist who is married to a guy in middle management somewhere.  She is probably extremely proud of her MSU alum status, but doesn't realize that her pride comes exclusively from the fact that they've dominated us in football for the last decade.  She probably gets a bit too drunk off of $11.99/bottle wine at parties and outkicks her intellectual coverage and ends up looking like a belligerent fool.  She probably runs a bunch of 5Ks and thinks she is smoking hot by virtue of the fact that she's not fat.  Basically half the women in my social circle.

I got mine in Traverse City on Saturday

In Traverse City and haven't gotten mine yet either.  I was in the process of blaming my wife for throwing it out, then I saw this.

How funny will it be if Saban starts declining like two years into this contract?  As a fan, I don't like when my team gets involved with huge multiple year contracts.  Good thing I'm not a bama fan 

07/02/2018 - 3:34pm Traverse City, MI

 

Pros: …

Traverse City, MI

 

Pros:  Beautiful scenery

Hot summers with little rainfall

4 brewpubs for every man, woman and child

Decent cultural and retail options relative to the area

 

Cons: Brutal winter

Real estate costs that make Ann Arbor look reasonable

"Foodie" scene that is both overpriced and substandard

Shitty wages

A populace within the city limits that would rival Ann Arbor's liberalism, while the opinions of the people outside the city limits would make the typical white 1950's Mississippi resident appear enlightened.  In short, the national political divide in a nutshell.

06/27/2018 - 9:21am I would have to imagine that…

I would have to imagine that if traffic is slowing down, then the powers that be have taken note and will be working on a plan of action.  Personally, my visits to the site have decreased substantially to maybe three or four times a day.  At the office I find myself visiting the new website far less often than I visited the old one, and at home at night I don't even check the website, whereas I would check the app several times per evening.  Maybe it will just take some time, but this has to be costing them ad revenues.

06/13/2018 - 8:10pm If you live in the Charter…

If you live in the Charter service area, they have this deal where you pay what works out to an additional $32/month over their base Internet service fee for cable.  You get FSD, BTN, ESPN, FSN, local networks and a bunch of other stuff.  You get one cable box in that price, and no DVR, although you can watch on other TVs via the Charter app on Roku (not available on fire stick though).  Best deal I've seen, plus you get cable reliability (ironically though my cable was down for the first three hours of the MSU game last fall, so I watched on the app).

Nice idea with your first line. preemptively silence the three or four assholes who feel the need to say "I don't think this team can look ahead past anybody".
