07/20/2017 - 3:27pm Sunrise: A Song of Two

Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans. Idiosyncratic and hugely influential masterpiece that bridges the formal gaps between the silent and sound eras. Whole thing is on YouTube, too!

12/09/2015 - 10:06pm BGSU Origins

Supposedly, Jack Harbaugh first picked that call and response up from a friend in Bowling Green, when he cocached there. Said friend is the grandfather of my friend, hence me knowing that. Not really sure that it's 100% true, but I love the connection anyway.

11/28/2015 - 7:55pm Home/Away Scheduling

Is there any hope of the Big Ten swapping OSU/MSU back to the off/on scheduling? I fucking haaaaate that we play both at home or on the road in the same season now.

11/28/2015 - 3:51pm Dunno if Brian's UFR will

Dunno if Brian's UFR will verify this, but it felt like OSU schemed to put Bolden on the spot. That went about as we might have expected. Disappointed that Durkin didn't have more wrinkles here. First time all year that it felt like we were just plain outschemed.

10/12/2015 - 1:44pm so happy

Posts like this/games, where you can feel that joyful and encompassing feeling of victory and comraderie make me want to cry. It's like being a 10-year-old watching Woodson run back that punt against Ohio State all over again. KEEP THESE FEELS COMING!

09/30/2015 - 4:27pm None of this is making me

None of this is making me feel anything but pure dread about my brother-in-law's wedding, which is supposed to be Saturday evening on a beach in Delaware. Hard to do when the beach is not dry land!

Well, this adds an interesting wrinkle to my brother-in-law's wedding on a beach in Delaware on Saturday night.

09/10/2015 - 12:17pm Question...

Am I to interpret the Ohio state fear level as saying they are as scary as the band Yes? If so, I agree.

08/31/2015 - 7:43pm Wormley/Henry Weirdness

Is it possible that Drevo and Harbaugh are just sticking with an odd nomenclature, where Henry's 3-tech is called a DE and Wormley's SDE is called a DT? Seems sort of ...stupid, but it's the best guess I've got.

12/29/2014 - 12:47pm I still cannot quite believe

I still cannot quite believe that he's coming home. What a world.

12/28/2014 - 11:36pm I have some friends who are

I have some friends who are fans of both the 49ers and OSU and are running through a while ream of rationalizations and criticisims of Harbaugh. Their crow tastes delicious already.

12/10/2014 - 5:27pm Wat.

Wat.

12/08/2014 - 11:06am I like Hoke, but with the

I like Hoke, but with the lack of built-in assets at Oregon State and his, er, lack of head coaching skills that program would be the bottom of the barrel out west.

11/29/2014 - 4:51pm Well, that says everything.

Well, that says everything. OSU lost two Heisman-level QBs and still won this game by 14. We lose the RB who was 3rd-string in the opener and our offense stalls.

11/24/2014 - 1:22pm I am hoping that next year's

I am hoping that next year's team is radically different in coaching and attitude that the comparison is not even worth it.

11/24/2014 - 1:01pm ...why? What's the point in

...why? What's the point in tallying the failures of a coaching staff that has less than a week left.

11/23/2014 - 2:39pm This year will prove to be an

This year will prove to be an aberration for Nuss. The issues with QB's at Michigan under Hoke have to be traceable to the head man and whatever stictures he's putting in place.

11/17/2014 - 11:36am Absolutely the right

Absolutely the right decision. 

11/16/2014 - 10:41am Because Michigan has

Because Michigan has standards, unlike Florida State? It's also a pretty easy standard to meet: don't commit (or be arrested for) criminal acts.

11/16/2014 - 10:40am He should be suspended until

He should be suspended until the DA decides wether or not to file charges. If he is charged then his Michigan career is and should be over.

11/10/2014 - 1:55pm Do we think there's any

Do we think there's any chance Funchess returns next year? The way the year has played out has had to have hurt his draft stock and a new coaching staff could actually make him into the star playmakers he could be.

11/10/2014 - 12:37pm I've never taken a gender

I've never taken a gender studies class. I'm just not a dickhead. :D

Also, the reasons those terms are not as upsetting or dehumanizing is because we live in a patriarchal society which misogyny is a systemic and universal part of the culture. So calling a man an asshole or a dickhead is not intrinsically an act of agression or opression. Odds are probably even that you arew calling a spade a spade. Even if it is an act of discrimination, it's not on the same level as the OP's comment. That's because slut-shaming a woman, even a hypthetical one, is a way to assert masculine control over her body and behavior. 

11/10/2014 - 12:06pm I swear to God that I will

I swear to God that I will spell it correctly the first time someday. First mosgyny, then lieutenient, and probably after that I will be able to take over the world.

11/10/2014 - 12:04pm You could have chosen any

You could have chosen any metaphor in the world to make your point. You chose one that shows a disdain for women. Misogyny is most frequently not outright hatred or spousal abuse, just like racism is most frequently not slurs or police brutality. It's a systemic state of mind that tells you the best way to make your point is to denigrate a hypothetical woman because women like that deserve to be put down.

Go ahead and neg bomb me for it, but I'm not the gross one here.

11/10/2014 - 11:42am Making your point without a

Making your point without a side dish of mysoginy would be great. No need for that here or anywhere.

I was sitting two rows up from the end zone, so I kept staring at those mishapen blobs in this set and wondering if that was me.

I would like to invest in Ann Arbor Torch and Pitchfork as soon as humanly possible.

The trouble is that no one else is planning or playing in the 90's. 

10/27/2014 - 12:26pm It's a damn tragedy that the

It's a damn tragedy that the AD closed up tight when Brandon arrived, because an insider account of the Hoke era would be an amazing companion piece to Three and Out. Completely different kind of disaster caused by completely different failures at different levels.

What I most want to know is just "How did it come to this?" Like, really, why did no one ever step in and say "This is not going to work?"

There are people who root for the Rams?

10/12/2014 - 11:44am I'm not sure I would trust

I'm not sure I would trust anything ESPN said last night. Those announcers were extremely far up Brady and Brandon's asses.

10/09/2014 - 11:27am I honestly think that 2008

I honestly think that 2008 squad might be favorites over this one. It would be a turnover-laden disaster zone, but Brandon Graham would have killed Gardner and that Threetsheridammit offense could stumble into points now and then.

10/09/2014 - 11:00am God. I don't think I can

God. I don't think I can honestly predict another win for us this season.

I thought we wanted to fix the offense?

10/08/2014 - 10:31pm I think he's said before that

I think he's said before that he always dreamed of coaching on of Michigan, Ohio State, or Notre Dame. Grew up in love with the big Midwestern football programs. He thought about being Chip Kelly's OC at Oregon after Tampa Bay fired him, too. That MNF gig is too good/easy to leave, though.

How is Tajh Boyd not an NFL backup? Dude lit it up in college.

10/05/2014 - 5:21pm Objective analysis in

Objective analysis in anything other than a scientific or statistical sense in a canard. No person's opinions or onsights are free of their own biases, blind-spoots, "agendas," and pre-conceptions. So...no. We cannot have more objective analysis this side of Bill Connolly's advanced stats.

10/01/2014 - 11:52am The 100K streak and the

The 100K streak and the Bo-era mottos are just window dressing on a broken-down and empty building at this point. Holding onto them is not worth more than declaring the structure condemned, tearing down, and starting over.

If I was a recuit, even a committed one, this whole fiasco would have me running far away. A wholly irrational love for the university would be the only thing that could overcome it.

09/28/2014 - 9:23pm Hoke has been in full-on

Hoke has been in full-on bunker mode ever since Penn State last year. Seems to be responding to adversity by walling off any voices but internal ones. Which is the dead opposite of healthy. I think the University administration or Regents need to step in to clean this mess up, but I am afraid that they will not.
