Yeah, it's not like Dickerson will have much to do in October.

07/10/2018 - 4:44pm I really like Dierdorf. He…

I really like Dierdorf. He pulls no punches. But I also agree that Brandy is below-average on PBP. You can follow a game with him but his calls just aren't that sharp.

Jim Harbaugh in a Dodge Challenger. My dad is going to lose his shit when I show him this.

07/02/2018 - 10:36pm For what it's worth, here…

For what it's worth, here are some other things Bill Connelly and his numbers have predicted:

- That Notre Dame would contend for a playoff spot in 2016

- He had Tennessee favored in 9 games in 2017

- That Florida State would go 10-2 in 2017

- That Georgia would go 7-5 in 2017.

07/01/2018 - 7:50pm My guess is, since Michigan…

My guess is, since Michigan is a heavy favorite to land Gray, the Freep has a story ready to go so when it becomes official they can have it online within seconds. Since no one else has reported it as official yet someone, somewhere, at Freep.com probably accidentally published it early and then had to pull it down. It happens. 

07/01/2018 - 7:14pm I googled Eric Gray and that…

I googled Eric Gray and that popped up but when I clicked on it the page said it was unavailable. Perhaps the Freep jumped the gun? Would the Freep incorrectly report something involving Michigan football? Has that ever happened before?

06/23/2018 - 6:37pm What was it Fielding Yost…

What was it Fielding Yost said about this MICHIGAN of ours?

06/20/2018 - 6:26pm I remind you all of what…

I remind you all of what George Carlin said ... "“Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.”

06/20/2018 - 6:20pm This game belongs at high…

This game belongs at high noon.

In general, I oppose night games. College football should be played in the afternoon.

06/14/2018 - 12:39pm Let's hope they steal one…

Let's hope they steal one against the Suckeyes. Purdue has pulled some upsets against them in the past.

06/14/2018 - 12:35pm They could have a year…

They could have a year similar to 2015, where they went unbeaten with an easy schedule and you always kind of suspected they weren't as good as their record.

06/14/2018 - 12:28pm 9-3 is a gray area for me…

9-3 is a gray area for me. It depends on where the three losses come.

Given the schedule, I would be fine with 10-2 and a New Year's Six appearance. Needless to say, I'd be much happier with 12-1 or 12-2 and a B1G title. Realistically that seems tough but doable.

What the hell is a jigawatt?

06/01/2018 - 10:08pm Forever and ever, Amen!

Forever and ever, Amen!

06/01/2018 - 10:05pm When I was a kid my parents

When I was a kid my parents had a blue Chevy Malibu with an 8 track player. They wore out The Best of Sam Cooke and he was the first singer I really liked. To this day I still love that record (although I purchased it on CD).

06/01/2018 - 10:00pm Randy Travis. Real country

Randy Travis. Real country with no apologies.

05/30/2018 - 3:59pm Miss Simon, you're coming

Miss Simon, you're coming with us ...

05/22/2018 - 5:18pm Yes, the search process was a

Yes, the search process was a mess. Getting a better candidate then could have made a lot of difference this past decade.

05/22/2018 - 4:26pm Sooooo .... Kurpit gonna

Sooooo .... Kurpit gonna Kurpit?

05/22/2018 - 4:23pm I miss telling people who

I miss telling people who were calling for Lloyd Carr's head in 2005-07 to be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.

 

05/17/2018 - 11:30pm For what it's worth, his

For what it's worth, his preview of the 2016 ND squad was titled "Notre Dame Made it Through a Brutal 2015. Now it's Time to Contend for a Playoff Spot."

05/17/2018 - 8:06am If he pitches against the

If he pitches against the Tigers when Houston comes to Detroit later this year that will be must-see TV. Or must-see JV.

05/16/2018 - 12:42pm I'll be voting against anyone

I'll be voting against anyone currently on that board, regardless of party.

05/16/2018 - 12:39pm The story says MSU wants to

The story says MSU wants to take it from tuition and state aid, but lawmakers (rightfully so, I believe) say no state aid money should be used.

That is a huge chunk of change from tuition and may explain why the university just took its largest freshman class ever.

Also, they can only raise tuition so much because the state puts a cap on it. Exceeding the cap can cost a university its state aid money.

05/16/2018 - 12:33pm They can't afford Kraft.

They can't afford Kraft. It'll be Meijer store brand mac n cheese.

05/15/2018 - 2:26pm I loved that show. I miss it.

I loved that show. I miss it.

05/13/2018 - 2:02pm McElwain feels like a

McElwain feels like a one-year rent-a-coach. But that is okay ... if he gets a coordinator job or head coaching offer elsewhere it's probably because he has revitalized Michigan's stagnant passing game.

05/13/2018 - 1:58pm Considering Harbaugh took us

Considering Harbaugh took us from a 5-7 disaster to 9-3 and then 10-2 and narrowly missing the playoff, I think his first two seasons were quite successful. 2017 was disappointing but for many reasons, all of which have already been beaten to death on this board.

05/03/2018 - 9:55pm Holy

Crap.

05/03/2018 - 9:52pm On the upside, the garden

On the upside, the garden should grow better now.

05/03/2018 - 9:46pm Has Mork ever smiled?

Has Mork ever smiled?

05/03/2018 - 9:41pm This is great news indeed!

This is great news indeed! All the best to your family.

05/02/2018 - 3:55pm That just means he managed

That just means he managed 4.5 years longer than Rod Allen.

05/02/2018 - 3:54pm While I agree that Rod has a

While I agree that Rod has a better delivery than Gibby, his analysis is nothing more than reading statistics, spouting catchphrases and making excuses for the Tigers. Gibby, while certainly subdued, has forgotten more about baseball than Rod Allen ever knew.

05/02/2018 - 3:51pm I respectfully disagree.

I respectfully disagree. Dickerson has a smooth delivery and the things he adds about the game outside of the Tigers just demonstrate that he follows baseball very closely. If you want to hear the worst play-by-play man in baseball check out Hawk Harrelson of the White Sox. Nothing but a pile of cliches.

05/02/2018 - 10:49am So wait ... this guy was

So wait ... this guy was saying these trips are more than shameless PR stunts and that Harbaugh is using them to teach his players important lessons about life and history? Don't let ol' Jugears hear about that.

05/01/2018 - 6:17pm It'll take a little longer

It'll take a little longer than three weeks. Have you seen their non-conference schedule? It's garbage, meaning they probably go 3-0 to open the year and all the national media will be fawning over Mork yet again.

05/01/2018 - 6:15pm Yeah, I have never seen a

Yeah, I have never seen a team get as many breaks as they do. Lucky bounces, key mistakes by opponenets, bullshit calls, no calls, weather intervention, you name it. They could have a very good season but ranking them number five!? That seems way to high. 10-15 would feel about right.

04/27/2018 - 6:01pm Nice work on that headline.

Nice work on that headline.

04/25/2018 - 2:15pm At least Baylor (eventually)

At least Baylor (eventually) fired the coaches responsible. At MSU, Mork and Tom get a free pass. And if either team has a good season next year, the local media narrative will all about how they overcame so many issues to lead their teams and help heal a wounded university.

And they skinned a Michigan coach alive becasue some players practiced too much.

04/18/2018 - 2:57pm As of 2:30 or so, the Freep's

As of 2:30 or so, the Freep's front page on its website has a giant ad for "A Dialogue with John Engler" and right underneath a top headline reading "Engler advisor: $250K payout claims 'fake news.'" I tried to post an image of this but it didn't work.

Think that advertiser will want their money back?

04/18/2018 - 2:31pm Why does Engler still have

Why does Engler still have this job? What the hell are these people thinking? Anyplace else he would have been sent out of town on the next thing smoking.

04/17/2018 - 4:23pm Billy Gillman being number

Billy Gillman being number one for Rhode Island just means there have been very few musical acts from Rhode Island.

 

04/13/2018 - 1:32pm I like the title of this

I like the title of this thread. it really does feel like there's something new every day.

04/12/2018 - 9:17pm That was my point, Mick53. It

That was my point, Mick53. It wasn't the content, it was the tone.

04/12/2018 - 3:31pm So, we have the number 6

So, we have the number 6 class right now, are #2 in the Big Ten, have 3 top 100 players already, a major 5-star guy, and 10 months until signing day, 2019, and the commenters on this board still find things to bitch about.

04/12/2018 - 2:46pm Yeah, it's getting a little

Yeah, it's getting a little old. We're all disappointed with 2017 but it's over now. Most signs (except the schedule) point to 2018 being a better season. Time to start looking forward instead of backward.

04/11/2018 - 3:19pm ^^^This.^^^

^^^This.^^^

04/11/2018 - 2:58pm Not to mention running on

Not to mention running on slippery field turf only increases the chances of a major injury.

04/11/2018 - 10:46am To me, it felt like

To me, it felt like everything changed with that first turnover. It felt like the opening MSU needed, and it was. Of course, all the other turnovers didn't help either.
