You are a hero

12/14/2018 - 7:38am New Mexico Bowl should be…

New Mexico Bowl should be renamed the Breaking Bad Bowl.    Otherwise, be nice and positively bang me.

12/13/2018 - 4:30pm I has confused.

I has confused.

They influenced many 1980's male hair styles.

12/13/2018 - 3:22pm Jesus Christ.  Did you just…

Jesus Christ.  Did you just misspell Oates?  Twice?  How dare you cast shade at the best background/#2 singer to ever walk this earth.  Blasphemy.

12/13/2018 - 3:17pm That was a great draft haul…

That was a great draft haul.  They instantly transformed a fairly moribund franchise.   Thomas and Tripucka averaged about 17 and 22 PPG as rookies.   Not bad.

12/13/2018 - 2:22pm Agree with this sentiment…

Agree with this sentiment 100%.  I called this time period the pre-Bad boy era in my response above.   Isiah and Laimbeer were parts 1 and 2.   Vinnie part 3.   Dumars part 4.   Salley, Rodman, and Mahorn added to the mix truly defined the Bad Boys.   Tripucka to Dantley to Aquirre was, to me, a mostly transparent transition of small forwards largely allergic to playing defense.

But those early to mid 80's Pistons teams were a delight to watch offensively.   Crazy basketball.

12/13/2018 - 1:54pm Kelly.  F'ing. Tripucka.   

Kelly.  F'ing. Tripucka.   

Guy could light it up in tight tight shorts.   And the hair?   I have no words.    But he was a key part of Detroit's transformation from mediocrity to playoff caliber.   Those pre-Bad Boys teams were fun to watch.

Petrino rolls in to Tuscaloosa on his two wheeled cruiser with resume in hand.  I like that image.

Can you blame them?

12/13/2018 - 3:59am Or Roy Roundtree.  Or Karan…

Or Roy Roundtree.  Or Karan Higdon.   I know...both were not 5 starz, but both were extremely late recruiting flips who had played large roles on Michigan teams.   

12/12/2018 - 1:32pm Econ final exam?

Econ final exam?

12/12/2018 - 1:30pm Wow.   Dismissal has a much…

Wow.   Dismissal has a much different connotation than transferring.     

This news confirms healthy doses of Wilson, Evans, Turner, and Charbonnet next year.   

12/11/2018 - 5:15pm I'm now convinced OSU's…

I'm now convinced OSU's linebackers were remote-controlled from a coach upstairs in the box.   How else could this previously undisciplined group with no demonstrated ability to show up in the right gap put on their best performance all year?   I don't think it was coaching or amped-up psychological effects.  I think it was literally someone controlling their movements at all times.   That's all I have.

I miss those years.   The Gilded Age of Lions fandom.

12/11/2018 - 12:29pm Exactly why I have a Joey…

Exactly why I have a Joey Harrington jersey in my closet.   Xmas present about 2 weeks before his final game as a Lion.   Mom-in-law must've gotten it on deep clearance.   I will keep it forever.    

A Danielson #16 jersey is also a cherished momento.   My dream?   A man cave adorned with every starting Lions QB jersey since my fandom commenced in the 70's (since Greg Landry).   I need Jeff Komlo's name hanging on my wall.

/Dusts off Joey Harrington #3 Lions jersey for inevitable playoff run

Kansas:  you're forgetting the extra bonus of seeing Les Miles in our conference.

12/07/2018 - 12:42pm My typical coaching…

My typical coaching perception rule:  never trust a head coach wearing a visor.   The Spurrier, Kiffin, etc. visor wearing crowd always seemed slimy to me.  I know.  It's rather shallow of me to cast aspersions on other coaches that choose to go the visor route.

I promise to change my attitude, though, if Jedd ever comes back and wears his visor on the sideline.

My cojones have been ready for the 10 year war for the past 15 years.

Contractual language regarding ample supply of burner phones included?

In defense of Craptain Crunch, he/she used the words "not acceptable", not "unacceptable".

This story illustrates Peak Harbaugh.   Agree exactly with OP why I love him representing our university.

I remember a time when I had Scot Loeffler and Jim Herman penciled in as potential Lloyd Carr HC replacements.

The obvious scenario to cure your dilemma:  let's play UCF and win medium!

 

But I agree with your assessment.   UCF is my least favorite potential bowl matchup.   That matchup doesn't stir my loins as much as others.

11/27/2018 - 1:47pm Mo Hurst.

We really missed…

Mo Hurst.

We really missed a Mo Hurst pass rush presence up the middle.  There's nothing like an interior DL in the QB's gill on a regular basis to disrupt a passing offense.    Edge pressure is great (which we also didn't get), but interior pass rush creating havoc is needed.   

11/27/2018 - 1:20pm "...the bulk of his classes…

"...the bulk of his classes have been under the radar MAC caliber kids."

Why even type this complete bullshit statement?  Seriously.   I normally don't feed trolls, but please do us all a favor and never let your fingers hit a keyboard or touch pad again.

And the B10 borrowed Aranda from the Mountain West (Utah St. and Hawaii).  

Like most coordinators, Aranda has lived a vagabond life bouncing through a slew of different universities and conferences.

Let me rephrase your last sentence:

I'll knock those out in December, after the OSU and B1G Championship game UFR's get posted.

Not in the SEC.

I think I just got called a rando.   I don't like being called a rando.

Wake is under .500 because the ACC is so strong.  Or something like that.

11/08/2018 - 9:28am Has the revenge window…

Has the revenge window expired for our pathetic Rutgers Gary Nova throw-god loss a few years ago?

11/08/2018 - 9:26am No advice, but this brings…

No advice, but this brings back memories of when my parents visited me at UM over T-giving break 20+ years ago.   I was also an RA, so I was stuck in the dorms.   We cruised Ann Arbor for over an hour in mid-afternoon - every restaurant was closed.   Some places were apparently open for brunch or lunch, but nothing was open afterwards.  I think we ate pretzels and cheetos for dinner in their hotel room.  I actually regretted not signing us up for the South Quad T-giving meal that, if memory serves correctly, you had to make reservations in order to be served.   

I should have planned a little better, just as you're doing now.  Good luck!

11/08/2018 - 9:07am Please tell me you roped…

Please tell me you roped yourself together BEFORE boarding the bus to Central Campus.   Because that would make the story even cooler.

I initially thought this was a Rutgers soccer goal highlight thread.

I now realize what I need in my life.   I need Carl Grapentine to read me bedtime stories.  Actually, read me anything.   Verse.  Prose.   Transcripts of the most recent MGoPodcast.  Please make this happen, Carl.   Cure my sleeping ills via a Grapentine Podcast.    Your voice can heal me.

UW hosts the Crazylegs Classic every year.  It's an 8K run that functions as a UW Athletics fundraiser. 

So, yeah, Elroy Hirsch definitely identifies with Wisconsin more than Michigan   But still a pretty cool linkage to our program.    And I didn't know he was buried in Wausau - might be worth a stop on my way to visit the U.P. on my frequent forays from Madison.

Or was it someone dressed up as WD?

11/01/2018 - 4:51pm Damn you for posting this…

Damn you for posting this deliciousness on the first day of my "lose 20 pounds in the next few months" diet.   Damn you.   

Now excuse me while I calculate my dinner caloric buffer on MyFitnessPal to see if a smash burger fits.   Alternative:  starve myself on Saturday morning and early afternoon, then stuff my face with these gems post-game.

Oh to have those two Caris LeVert years back in a UM uniform.   Or maybe only one - probably goes pro after junior year if no injury occurs.   

Love his game.    Love his attitude.   Love that he put in major work to develop his game and body.   JB should have an easy recruiting sell with a Caris LeVert poster on his office wall.
