03/25/2018 - 9:41am It’s spring break and I’m a teacher

Critical day is today when I try to convince my wife that a 30-hour, one-way drive (compared to $4,000 in airfare for the family) could be a blast. She was caught up in the euphoria as well, so she is willing to listen. I put my odds of pulling off the finals at 15 percent...

03/16/2018 - 12:28am I can't drink either

Got a rubber-glove type of physical tomorrow, which might be more enjoyable than this game...

 

03/16/2018 - 12:26am Glad we're winning, but

02/08/2018 - 12:35am Sorry ... repost

Nothing to see here...

02/08/2018 - 12:34am Agreed, but...

Seriously, there have been some odd circumstances that would have been difficult to predict, and there has been a lot of bad luck with our most important position.

JH came here with the cupboard bare, and still found magic in a transfer, and he recruited a highly ranked QB after losing out on KJ Costello.

Then Speight beats out the inexperienced freshmen, and proceeds to have a decent year until the end (and he wasn't terrible). (YEAR 2) There was reason to believe that Speight was going to be a strength rather than a weakness going into last year. He was at least going to improve on a serviceable year that included a few hiccups.

But then he was consistent, got hurt, and Peters couldn't unseat O'Korn. O'Korn implodes., and Peters comes in and gets hurt, and we're back to O'Korn.

I mean, say what you will about how Bama and OSU and Clemson can roll out freshmen who perform, but they also had zero holes on the rest of their team. We just can't afford to have subpar QB play if we hope to become elite. Someday, perhaps, but not now.

Year 4 means either Shea gets in and becomes QB, Peters plays better and keeps Shea off the field, or McCaffery kicks all of their asses. Either way, logic points to a more stable QB situation from here on out.

We have a zillion sophomores and juniors taking the field this year that were part of highly ranked classes. The sky fell today, but I'm pretty optimistic moving forward.

01/04/2018 - 1:01pm Seriously,

Is anyone surprised by anything in that document? Disgusted, perhaps; not surprised.

01/02/2018 - 7:30pm Agree

But so you know, I didn't blame RR; I blame hiring RR.

01/02/2018 - 2:12pm Still reeling from Rich Rod...

The Rich Rod hire remains the most colossal mistake of this program. It was almost like having your old dad  (who was kind of lame) leave the family, and mom finds a stepdad. He’s cooler, younger, but he’s not the old dad, and he makes a lot of mistakes trying to replace your dad. But ultimately, even after four years, he just can’t be dad, and mom kicks him out and brings back old, lame dad. Familiar, yet inept.

 

This sums up eight years of the program, and while this was all happening, all the kids now in college (or who we’re recruiting) have watched all the cooler dads in the neighborhood win father of the year awards.

 

I still believe Father Jim will fix this. I don’t know how he fits into my dad analogy; perhaps he was a guy on a mission in Africa who returned and replaced lame, old dad.

 

I have issues...

 
01/01/2018 - 5:14pm Top-five terrible loss

I don't ever think I've seen such a prolonged meltdown by a Michigan team in a single game. I remember a top-ranked Miami team fighting back, and I remember the Buffs' Hail Mary, but a complete breakdown with a 16-point lead while driving into the endzone to seal it with two minutes left in the third quarter. And then the fumble ...

Brutal day, Michigan brethren.

Brutal day

05/13/2017 - 11:14am Whatever my superpower,

I'm sure that I would first use it for evil and not good. Time travel: I'd go back to any time where I could capitalize on my knowledge and then lead a life of debauchery. In short, I'd go Biff from Back to the Future II.

I kept it on because I don't get too many Wings' games here in Oregon.  This is a huge win for the young kids and Mrazek.
