|04/13/2018 - 1:56pm||Good one:||
"Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman, a man so allergic to turnovers that he explodes if he enters a bakery."
|04/10/2018 - 8:45pm||But he did tell us||
what was a-happenin'
|03/26/2018 - 6:03am||The difference is palpable||
But not particularly measurable.
It is truly heartwarming to see our basketball and hockey teams out-work and out-hustle the opps. This is partially a function of conditioning.
Damn, our "boys of winter" sure work hard!
In hockey, it is whole-body excruciatingly painful to keep working at the end of a shift, yet Pearson's guys just push through it. And I guaran-fuckin-tee it: you'll NEVER see any of Beilein's boys "dog it."
***Snark alert!!*** - unlike those Seminole quitters.
Dang, I can almost feel the "negs" already: if only St. Jim could get his boys to play this hard...
|03/25/2018 - 6:47am||Palm Sunday muses||
My church here in E TN is chock full of Sparty fans. I wonder if I'll mention that the Ramblers (cool building Loyola has there in Southfield) have more NCAA wins in the last 2 WEEKS than Fizzo has in the last 3 YEARS. So far this year I've just contented myself with telling some of the Sparty fans that they simply need better guard play to win in the bigtime.
HELP!! What do I say to all the damn Ohioans?
But my very best friends there are Chicagoans. What do I tell them? That Loyola should be in the Big Ten?
It looks like we have an object lesson here on the value of playing HARD. There must be a sermon in there somewhere.
Who has it better than us?!?!?
Maybe we can be ahead 24-12 at the first media TO next Saturday?
|03/04/2018 - 8:25pm||I like the||
"Beilien Certainty Principle."
|03/03/2018 - 6:12pm||Always cool||
to beat Sparty.
Fun to watch Izzo implode.
|03/03/2018 - 3:47am||Great comment||
by our coach when asked about Mo in the postgame interview:
"He makes some of the stupidest fouls ever...puts them in the bonus early. I need to figure out some way in German to communicate with him. But don't get me wrong - I love the guy."
All said while grinning.
***Probably not a correct direct quote***
|02/24/2018 - 2:51pm||ESPN did a split-screen||
in the 1st half
with Lunardi blathering on & on & on about...
specifically, who the hell knows?
I had a Dakich-induced mute going on.
Fun game to watch even w/o sound!!
|02/18/2018 - 4:32pm||Only those %^#*[email protected] Big Ten refs||
kept the fuckeyes in the game.
Should have been a 25+ pt blowout.
But wasn't it fun to see Moe all fired up like that?
|01/16/2018 - 7:49pm||Unfortunately, the concept of||
"we're all adults here"
doesn't truly work in online environments.
|01/16/2018 - 5:18pm||"and now...||
...we're headed into more."
Beilien sure keeps this customer satisfied!
|01/16/2018 - 5:11pm||Dang!||
I guess I have been inaffectual for years.
Nonetheless, I am certain that having Grant back on our OL will truly be a game-affecter.
|01/16/2018 - 12:17pm||Ahem -||
It was CLEARLY a moving screen that got that MD guy the open top-of-the-key three at the (almost) end of the game.
Also - how is it even possible that after a couple thousand replays of the Hill/Laetner (sp??) miracle that a decent Big Ten coach would NOT know to cover the in-bounder?
|01/07/2018 - 5:16am||I am, AHEM, over 60||
(Class of '78)
My Dad assembled my bro (class of '74)
and me a dresser when I wasn't even a teenager yet -
and I'm using it to this very day!!
What's a cam screw?
(Sounds a bit kinky...)
|01/06/2018 - 3:40pm||Texas looking like a crap team||
but Baylor's uni's look even worse
|12/11/2017 - 12:31pm||Perhaps we're all time traveling||
as if we're in a Vonnegut novel -
I'm hoping RichRod can get the team up for MSU.
|11/23/2017 - 7:43am||Why not||
|11/23/2017 - 7:27am||Is there||
a missing "/s" there, my friend?
|11/17/2017 - 1:55pm||One of the best films ever||
The first time I ever saw it was in E Quad with the RA for 4th Floor Hinsdale.
|11/17/2017 - 1:49pm||Nik was the best||
What happened to him in the NBA?
|11/05/2017 - 3:00am||Also learned that Bo||
had a great RB named Rob Little.
|10/28/2017 - 7:58pm||While "chemping" is definitely||
not a word - what about "chimping" or "chumping?"
I believe chumping refers to the style of certain former NFD coaches.
Chimping might be about a movie series.
Chemping is actually close to being about a Marx Brother.
|09/29/2017 - 10:53pm||Always best||
not to play on Yom Kippur anyway.
|09/09/2017 - 11:37pm||"Michigan Monday"||
will be a fun read this week.
|08/21/2017 - 6:52pm||It just plain doesn't feel right||
to see Navarre ranked higher than Brady
|07/09/2017 - 7:38am||I never repress things||
but, oddly enough - some seasons are shorter than others.
|06/16/2017 - 9:50pm||Only baseball is left to watch now||
And try as I might - I just cannot stay awake for even a few innings.
I'll always love the game and the Tigers are still right up there with my other all-time favorites (guess what other teams are up there?)
Just please don't make me watch MLB before September!
|03/09/2017 - 10:50pm||Can we get off the 8/9 seed line?||
My completely unsubstantiated opinion is that a BTT Finals appearance would be necessary. Just beating the Spoilerschnooks wouldn't quite be enough.
|02/21/2017 - 5:49am||Pardon me||
but didn't Sparty go 3-9 last year? Wouldn't they fit your as long as it falls between weeks 3 and 9 parameter?
Oh, now I see what you did there!
|02/17/2017 - 6:37am||"Tom & Jerry"||
got nothin' on "Tom & Pete"
|02/17/2017 - 6:25am||Hmmm||
I wonder what Pete thought?
|02/17/2017 - 6:21am||Much more critical:||
Who plays his wife?
|01/24/2017 - 7:10pm||To the best of my recollection||
that is correct. Sparty did indeed go 3-9, while NFD went 4-8.
|01/23/2017 - 9:39pm||Please excuse an old infidel like me||
but what in tarnation is "BTB?"
Surely (but please don't call me Shirley) it's not "Business To Business."
|01/04/2017 - 7:50pm||"Captain Philips"||
***Najee*** was the name of one of the pirates in that film.
I doubt if that means much of anything.
|12/30/2016 - 11:25am||24-12 Meechigan||
My all-time favorite score
|12/29/2016 - 9:58pm||This bowl season just keeps getting worse||
There I was, peacefully minding my own business & happily anticipating the first "real'/Top 15 matchup this month.Then I had to cringe inwardly as I was finishing the dishes in the kitchen & heard the dulcet tones of Mack Brown!!
He's not going to do the Orange Bowl, is he? PLEASE - someday tell me it ain't so.
|12/09/2016 - 2:14pm||Hawkins||
That QB in Hawkin's video looks pretty good, too. Anyway know anything about him? What's his name, for instance.
|12/05/2016 - 1:18pm||Oddysey||
Has there been a study similar to Brymer's regarding the question of refs often getting intimidated by the home crowd & thus not throwing flags against the hometeam?
I'd certainly be interested in the results of THAT investigation.
|12/02/2016 - 10:28am||15 yards for excessive use of commas!||
But yes - it IS great to be a Meechigan Wolverine
And yes - Jimmy & what he brings to the table are indeed exciting
and yes - you get an upvote!
Meyer and his band of crooks better watch out in next year's Game, and I'm sure they're having nightmares already about '18 & '19 and beyond.
|11/29/2016 - 10:14pm||Even though we always found ways to lose the Rose Bowl||
I'd truly enjoy seeing those Pasadena mountains at sunset again. Starting to get un-hungover & looking forward to watching yet another major bowl game - what could be better? Either U$C or Washington or even Colorado would be fine opps, although tradition-wise I ofc would rather play the Trojans.
Hopefully the refs will be required to only award TDs if the ball actually gets into the end zone.
|11/28/2016 - 12:12pm||We know all of the arguments.||
Now - who do we contact, and how do we do so?
|11/25/2016 - 3:45pm||Am watching carefully selected previous Games||
I just saw the 1995 Game - too bad Timmy B wasn't that good
|10/23/2016 - 12:58am||Great day indeed||
The only way it could have been better would be if Notre F***ing Dame had lost.
|10/09/2016 - 7:03pm||Woody||
According to Wikipedia, after The Game in 1968 Woody DID say "because I couldn't go for 3."
Howevah, the 2 pt try DID fail.
|09/27/2016 - 6:14pm||24-12 Meechigan||
I don't always guess, but when I do I choose that score.
|09/05/2016 - 1:18pm||That "dang" Irish team||
Notre Dame is known in my household (and even in my Mom & Dad's!!) as Notre F***ing Dame.
I remember Ufer going on & on about how sweet it will be to beat ND again - right in the middle of calling The Game.
I didn't notice Kelly having apoplexy/turning bright red in the face last night, though. Was I just not watching closely enough?
|05/29/2016 - 7:39pm||Wowie Zowie||
That's what champions do - turn a good break into a winning rally.
But I can't help but wonder: is the lack of singing Muppets for our super-duper women a Title lX violation?
|11/21/2015 - 3:55pm||I'd make a brilliant post, but||
I'd probably get penalized
|11/03/2015 - 5:55pm||This thread being randomly serpentine, I'll||
go ahead and ask this here:
if we win out, do we get a "New Year's Six" bowl?
