Obviously, as everyone has mentioned, document everything. With that said, what matters the most is that she receives the care she needs and that she recovers completely. Secondarily, issues that led to the injury need to be addressed. While I've seen some comments to litigate, the question becomes to litigate for what? If there are no permanent injuries, her care is completely covered, and her time off work is completely compensated then it may not be worth your trouble. It certainly does not hurt to retain a lawyer with expertise in this area, but I would suggest first talking to the doctors about her prognosis and whether there will be any permanent injury or disfigurement.

People come to this website to learn Brian's opinion on everything. FFS, you are commenting in a thread he created. You can be darn sure that Brian is composing a requiem for Urban Meyer and I certainly look forward to reading his prose. While not always the same opinion as mine, he writes very well and has a well conceived opinion. I enjoy learning the opinions of other smart people. Are you so daft that the only opinion you give a shit about is your own?

tl/dr: stop drinking and go to bed.

 The plot thickens... I was on 3rd Cooley. I'm wondering if we knew the same people.

As a resident of East Quad in '89, I will verify this statement.... But to be fair, most of EQ stuck to weed.

12/05/2018 - 1:43pm Or the two highest ranked…

Or the two highest ranked teams. Or some other random criteria. It will rapidly devolve into the four best teams. Then people will complain that it should be six or eight.

12/05/2018 - 1:21pm Meh... Who selects the "best…

Meh... Who selects the "best" two teams? Sounds like another way for the B1G to screw some teams over.

12/04/2018 - 8:15am OSU gets great recruits…

OSU gets great recruits. Losing Urban Meyer may hurt them in certain locations but they will still get great athletes. He is a great coach and definitely had Michigan's number. I wish Michigan had beaten one of his teams.

Edit: Michigan did beat his Florida team. I was thinking of his OSU teams.

12/03/2018 - 6:18am  The Willis Ward "boel"…

 The Willis Ward "boel" thread needs to go away. Honestly, any thread about Chick-fil-a will probably end badly.

12/02/2018 - 9:43pm  That's an incredibly…

 That's an incredibly unfortunate part of the narrative.

12/02/2018 - 6:55pm Exactly - I was thinking…

Exactly - I was thinking Georgia O'Keeffe or a Rorschach test.

12/02/2018 - 6:52pm This isn't crying - it's…

This isn't crying - it's Groundhog Day. I'm fine with the Peach Bowl. I would rather Michigan played LSU or UCF. In my book, New Years Eve is 12/31 and New Years Day is 1/1. You can call it NY6 but it isn't on either day; you can also say your farts don't stink. I'm reserving the right to call BS on both.

Anyway, I am happy with the possibility of 11 wins and (hopefully) a big win over Florida will set the tone for next year.

12/02/2018 - 4:43pm I have a feeling that we're…

I have a feeling that we're going to make amends for OSU and that Don Brown is going to kill any player trying a crossing route himself.

12/02/2018 - 4:42pm I'm going to call my…

I'm going to call my psychiatrist. First, because of the stupidity of those who set up the re-rematch (which, btw ESPN, Michigan won twice including the Citrus in 2016). And, second, because that Peach Bowl logo looks incredibly dirty to me.

I just about punched the TV at that one. He directly contradicts himself within about twenty seconds...

12/02/2018 - 7:24am They were susceptible to…

They were susceptible to being left out. The thing is, however, nobody stepped up to push them out of the top 4. Like it or not, ND took care of business with a schedule that should have been harder than it turned out to be. But I don't fault ND for the weakness of Stanford, USC, and FSU this year. They also played Michigan and Syracuse (neutral site).

Honestly, after watching Alabama last night look beatable, I really think ND could take them. A final group of Alabama, Clemson, ND, and Oklahoma would make for an interesting CFP. I'm certainly not interested in seeing Georgia in there after choking. Nor am I interested in seeing OSU get in over any of those teams.

12/01/2018 - 8:19pm  Listen Vlad, you're never…

 Listen Vlad, you're never going to get the Baltics if you just set your sights on Crimea and eastern Ukraine. Aim higher.

11/18/2018 - 7:26pm This is the real truth. The…

This is the real truth. The helmet has become a weapon rather than a device used to protect the head. I wonder what a game would look like with no helmet and no pads. Probably a lot like rugby...

11/18/2018 - 11:39am  Some team that is "worthy"…

 Some team that is "worthy" will always complain about being left out. If you expand to six teams, does UCF still get in over Georgia, OSU, Oklahoma, West Virginia or Washington State?

 I, for one, don't believe UCF should get in because their schedule is crap. At least ND had a tough schedule on paper: Michigan, Stanford, USC, Florida State should all be tough games in normal years.

11/18/2018 - 8:19am  The a-hole refs took an…

 The a-hole refs took an eternity to confirm the blatant targeting. And only after the crowd was chanting to "kick him out!". I swear that if they didn't call it, it would have been a blood bath.

Rashan Gary might have something to say here...

11/17/2018 - 9:05pm Haskins running is not the…

Haskins running is not the same as Ramsey running. Their game plan was going to be similar to Indiana, no doubt, but without a QB run option. They tried to get Haskins to run today and it was generally a disaster.

11/17/2018 - 9:01pm I can't stand OSU but at…

I can't stand OSU but at least they (generally) are not the cheap shot artists like MSU and, now, Indiana. Beat Ohio State. That's all I want for Christmas.

11/17/2018 - 8:54am I think you're one miss will…

I think you're one miss will be MSU/NEB.  I think Nebraska wins that one. Congrats on your run!

11/15/2018 - 7:41pm Catch Don Brown by surprise?…

Catch Don Brown by surprise? Doubtful. If we can see it, he can see it.  Moreover, they are prepping Martell in OSU's old offense which we've faced multiple times. I'm fine with letting a redshirt freshman try and run that after only a couple games against a Michigan defense that's ready for it.

11/15/2018 - 7:38pm He's ready for the NFL…

He's ready for the NFL. Great pocket passer. Great pocket awareness. Can make all the throws. I'm not sure what you're looking at but the only problem for him is Urban/OSU. The only reason to wait is if he isn't in the top 10 picks next draft.

11/15/2018 - 7:35pm Martell will be on most…

Martell will be on most every 3rd and short as well as in the red zone. And I'm fine with that.

On this last quote:

In that respect, he can guard the three and the four in Beilein's offense and in Beilein's system...

What exactly is Beilein's system?  When he first came, it was the 1-3-1, right? It's changed almost every year, right?  To me, it seems that his "system" is whatever is suited to the players on his team. He's one hell of a coach.

 

11/14/2018 - 9:10pm It's like we time-warped…

It's like we time-warped into the 90s when football and basketball were both good simultaneously. Just need the hockey team to cooperate and we'll be a fully operational Death Star.

11/13/2018 - 8:46pm Agree.  ND won head-to-head…

Agree.  ND won head-to-head. They had, on paper, a really tough schedule to open this year with Michigan, FSU, Stanford, USC.

11/11/2018 - 4:36pm These things tend to sort…

These things tend to sort themselves out. Let's see what happens over the next few weeks. What the committee will decide will become more obvious in that timeframe. I don't think it's impossible that the committee screws Michigan in the scenario presented, but it's not 50-50. The could screw ND or Clemson. If they leave Michigan out, then they've just blown up the CFP as they've not only screwed Michigan but also the Big 12 and PAC 12.

Alabama wouldn't have much an argument because they should've won their conference championship like everybody else (ND excluded - which is why they might get screwed).

11/11/2018 - 1:42pm  Yes. Clockwise in the…

 Yes. Clockwise in the Northern hemisphere and counter clockwise in the Southern hemisphere. Except if viewed from underwater, then it's backwards.

11/11/2018 - 1:32pm I like your post prior to…

I like your post prior to mine. I think you worded the argument very well and better than me (I was typing mine before yours posted).  The question would be whether the committee would want to go nuclear.

11/11/2018 - 1:24pm  That's good idea. Stick to…

 That's a good idea. Stick to the fundamentals.

11/11/2018 - 1:19pm  I'm not sour on Frost. He's…

 I'm not sour on Frost. He's Nebraska's Harbaugh (albeit without the resume yet).

11/11/2018 - 12:18pm True, but with Brohm I could…

True, but with Brohm I could see them winning 7 or 8 games most years with an occasional 10 wins and West title every few years and a B1G title once a decade or so. That's essentially the Ferentz recipe for 20 years at Iowa.

11/11/2018 - 12:12pm This is an interesting…

This is an interesting scenario and very much the Doomsday one for the CFP. Like you, I don't think it will happen. However, I think it's too soon to say if Clemson, ND, or Michigan would get screwed (I'm agreeing that they would try and sneak two SEC teams in). But whomever they chose, that would be the death of the current system.

The only choice to preserve the current system would exclude Alabama and just say to them "You've got to win your conference championship" just like they tell every other non-SEC conference.

11/11/2018 - 12:00pm Your last point…

Your last point notwithstanding (which is obviously true), but Eastern just became bowl eligible. Minnesota is also on the cusp of bowl eligibility (ironically, as you noted, after throttling Purdue).

My point wasn't so much that Purdue was great as much as they are much better than they have been in a long time (which is relatively great for them).

11/11/2018 - 11:52am I'd take it exactly the…

I'd take it exactly the opposite. The better coached and talented team will play better (and wear out the opponent quicker) if there are fewer stoppages.

11/11/2018 - 11:45am Gotcha - thanks!

Gotcha - thanks!

11/11/2018 - 11:44am Purdue had won 5 games total…

Purdue had won 5 games total in the previous two season before Brohm. They won 7 games in his first. They've won 5 this year with games against Wisconsin and Indiana (both winnable). For Purdue, this is pretty great.

11/11/2018 - 11:39am No. Stay focused. Beat OSU…

No. Stay focused. Beat Indiana. Beat OSU. Beat NW. Profit.

11/11/2018 - 11:37am I've seen this a lot too -…

I've seen this a lot too - is there some reason to leave Purdue for Louisville?  Brohm is really getting Purdue going and could be challenging for the B1G West next year.

11/10/2018 - 10:51pm I see where you're coming…

I see where you're coming from, but I don't think you want to take any chances with your #1 or #2 guy in garbage time.

11/10/2018 - 9:55pm Yeah, this is a carbon copy…

Yeah, this is a carbon copy of just about every one of his posts.

This, unfortunately, is ugly football and what people imagine when thinking about B1G football.

11/10/2018 - 2:24pm No, the committee will move…

No, the committee will move them, LSU, Kentucky and NC State up because that's what they feelz.

11/10/2018 - 2:15pm Without a running QB, OSU…

Without a running QB, OSU just looks horrible.

Memo to MSU Defense:  It's tackle football, not two-hand touch.

Got lucky on that punt there... 95-yard drive for Lombardi gets him into MSU lore...

EDIT:  LOL, guess not...

EDIT 2:  He gets another chance...

EDIT 3:  And another chance...

Hahaha - exactly! Chess involves strategy. This is two blind squirrels fighting over a buried nut.
