Gotta…

Gotta keep rollin'

Gotta keep ridin'

Keep searchin'

Till I find what's right.

11/17/2018 - 11:23am And his daughter married…

And his daughter married Vladdie Putin? Must make for interesting Thanksgiving dinners.

11/16/2018 - 6:37pm Yes he is. Just read an…

Yes he is. Just read an article about him. Maybe my alltime favorite morbidly obese football coach. Him or...wait for it...Abe Gibron. If you remember ole Abe you are older than dirt. 

11/16/2018 - 6:35pm This is GREAT news. There…

This is GREAT news. There was talk about Ed Warriner being up for that job. He does have a KU background from back when they were actually good at football in the Mangino era.

 

11/14/2018 - 9:52pm I remember when a very large…

I remember when a very large part of this board wanted Beilein gone. Where did y'all go??

11/14/2018 - 9:48pm Yeah. Harbaugh and Beilein…

Yeah. Harbaugh and Beilein found their DC's by looking on the Internet. The rest of coaching wants to know what exactly they put in the Google search bar.

11/14/2018 - 9:40pm Long Road is great stuff. My…

Long Road is great stuff. My Mgowife bought me a bottle of Whistle Pig Rye for my last birthday. We shared a few on the rocks and had a very nice evening. Nicer even than watching Z and Company kick ass.

11/14/2018 - 12:17pm Leach on Upsets..

Leach on Upsets..

"Everybody's all surprised every time this stuff happens. It surprises me everybody gets surprised, because it happens every year like this that there are surprises. The most surprising thing would be if there weren't any surprises. So therefore, in the final analysis, none of it's really that surprising."

11/14/2018 - 12:04pm Dewand Jones? Is that a new…

Dewand Jones? Is that a new name? Ben Davis is Chris Evans high school, correct? 6 foot 8 and 360? If the kid can move at all he should be Top 300. 

11/12/2018 - 5:48pm Mo wasn't Mo that first year…

Mo wasn't Mo that first year. If Castleton is Moritz like it will likely show up in 2020.

11/12/2018 - 3:24pm Columbus...making you forget…

Columbus...making you forget the charm of the Mekong Delta.

11/12/2018 - 2:59pm Yeah...well...Schiano turned…

Yeah...well...Schiano turned down Michigan. You thought nothing could be more chaotic than the RichRod years?

11/12/2018 - 2:53pm Yeah...Petrino and Larry…

Yeah...Petrino and his wingman Larry Eustachy.

11/12/2018 - 2:01pm I love Brandy. Think he is…

I love Brandy. Think he is great color guy. Never understood why he didn't graduate to national broadcasts.

But as a PBP guy? Just not his gig. Sadly he is embarrassing himself. But then, it was a Dave Brandon idea so there's that...

11/12/2018 - 1:56pm But Bubba is perfect for the…

But Bubba is perfect for the Lions. Stupid is as stupid does.

11/12/2018 - 1:55pm No you're not, Michael K.

No you're not, Michael K.

Ferdie Pacheco is one of those names you just don't forget. 

11/11/2018 - 3:48pm Lord Layton 

Lord Layton. If not him, then The Sheik.  

11/03/2018 - 9:16pm Not until Columbus.

Not until Columbus.

11/03/2018 - 8:43pm Coach O of the Big Ten? That…

Coach O of the Big Ten? That would Bo Pelini, right?

11/03/2018 - 8:37pm Don Brown...the Budweiser of…

Don Brown...the Budweiser of Defensive Coordinators.

11/03/2018 - 11:12am Anyone know where I can find…

Anyone know where I can find the broadcast of FAU vs FIU? Can't miss this storied rivalry. Lane Kiffin went to FAU just to coach in this game. You can throw out the records when these two get together.

11/02/2018 - 2:14pm I had not read it. I now…

I had not read it. I now have and it was a perfect Brian blend of wit, snarky humor and existential foreboding. 

I wonder if Brian's realization that observing and writing on sports was a worthwhile career choice survived the Brady Hoke era.

10/31/2018 - 5:16pm Any Don Brown wasn't on…

Don Brown wasn't on anyones radar (except, thankfully, Harbaugh's) when DJ Durkin left. He was not the young hotshot flavor of the month. He spent 40 years coaching in mostly small town New England. Didn't ever work for the big time head coaches. But he is the best DC in America hands down.  And he was before he came to Ann Arbor.

10/27/2018 - 10:43pm damn. I feel old. 

This…

damn. I feel old. 

This stands as testament to the genius of Scotty Bowman. He related later that he really couldn't understand how they played the way they did but he knew enough to put them together and get the hell out of the way. For my money the greatest professional sports coach ever.

One more thing...I loved Vladdie Konstantinov. What a fucking tragedy.

10/21/2018 - 12:19am Stop sugar coating. Tell us…

Stop sugar coating. Tell us what you really think.

10/20/2018 - 11:32pm Sorry has no offense. None…

Sorry has no offense. None. I keep squinting to see if Al Borges is their OC.

10/20/2018 - 11:28pm Medical leave. Anytime now…

Medical leave. Anytime now. He cracked mentally at Florida and it is happening now at OSU. Both times it was when the sleaze was no longer containable. Urban has health issues? Bullshit. He just wants to run away.

10/20/2018 - 7:56pm At times?

At times?

10/20/2018 - 5:06pm Ummm...spandex. But only for…

Ummm...spandex. But only for yoga.

10/20/2018 - 5:04pm Maybe any era.

Maybe any era.

10/20/2018 - 9:12am That "first down" in…

That "first down" in Columbus in 2016. Perhaps it was actually a first down but it was inches either way. But the officials immediately signaled first down and that's that. No bring out the chains. No booth review of the spot. You know none of this would be going on if Jim Delany was still commissioner.

10/20/2018 - 9:05am Bravo Mike Leach! He is a…

Isn't it amazing how quickly FOIA requests can be answered if a university wants it out? I always thought it took months because university officials are so busy.

10/16/2018 - 5:57pm Sorry Gucci but I have…

Sorry Gucci but I have problems with...

 "The coaches seem to want him to play." Which to me suggests they think he can play. Everybody wants Gary to play. There is nothing I have seen or heard that suggests the coaches and Gary are not on the same page.

"Hopefully his boys Bush and Dwumfour put a little pressure on him to play." Do you really believe Gary is milking it and he needs pressure from teammates get out and play? Because that is the clear inference of the comment.

10/15/2018 - 7:01pm Given your handle you must…

Given your handle you must be a George Orwell fan. I believe Animal Farm remains the greatest satire ever written.

10/15/2018 - 4:54pm So, anyone know what…

So, anyone know what happened at Minnesota last year that made Warriner available? 

10/15/2018 - 4:47pm For the zillions of hours…

For the zillions of hours and dollars NFL teams spend on scouting how is it the two of the four highest rated defensive rookies went in the 4th and 5th round?

10/15/2018 - 4:41pm Speaking of former players…

Speaking of former players...that picture of Steve Everett is Chase Winovoch in 25 years.

10/15/2018 - 12:57pm Dropping the snap is bad…

Dropping the snap is bad luck. O'Neill not diving on the loose ball? The kid just freaked. There is an element of coaching in preventing that.

10/15/2018 - 12:11pm The margin of error being…

The margin of error being next to nothing? Ain't that the truth. We lost two rivalry games at the end of the game:

Our punter has a brain cramp and doesn't fall on a mishandled snap and

A hometown placement of a fourth down run in Columbus.

 

10/15/2018 - 11:53am Would you like the list in…

Would you like the list in alphabetical or chronological order?

10/14/2018 - 11:48pm Gotterdammerung: the…

Gotterdammerung: the downfall of Urban Meyer and OSU football. Coming soon to a horseshoe near you.

10/14/2018 - 11:37pm Unided?? That's priceless!!

Unided?? 

It's been inspiring to see how unided the MSU community has been the last year or so.

 

 

10/14/2018 - 11:32pm Yeah, maybe. But their coach…

Yeah, maybe. But their coach is Lloyd Carr without the flair.

10/14/2018 - 11:28pm Purdue is coming on. They've…

Purdue is coming on. They've got a lot straightened out. The OSU defense is not up to recent standards, especially in the back. And Purdue is an aerial circus. Would not surprise me one but if the Purdue Fighting Tillers kick Urban's ass.

10/14/2018 - 11:20pm Essay question...

Big Ten…

Essay question...

Big Ten West or 2018 AL Central. Which is worse?

10/14/2018 - 11:10pm Urban Meyer is a bad guy…

Urban Meyer is a bad guy. His actions are probably no worse than a number of college coaches but the sanctimonious bullshit that oozes out of him sets him apart. 

10/13/2018 - 11:23pm There are Don Brown haters?…

There are Don Brown haters? I guess I don't spend enough time on the Internet.

10/13/2018 - 11:12pm Agreed!

All hail Jim…

Agreed!

All hail Jim McElwain. Never thought I would say that.

Roy Roundtree, too. 

10/13/2018 - 11:04pm Don Brown. 

Nothing more…

Don Brown. 

Nothing more needs be said.

10/13/2018 - 11:03pm Don Brown. 

Nothing more…

Don Brown. 

Nothing more needs to be said.
