Join UofM? ... 0%. Hang with his Dad, Brother, Nephew, etc while between jobs? Pretty good. He'll probably hang around during camp and a few game weeks if he takes a year off. Watch some film, do a podcast, etc.

Ever Nut Ogre. He hangs with the Abominable Snowman.

That's two comments for edibles. I'll have to put edibles on my "before I'm 40" bucket list.

11/07/2018 - 12:20am I've considered it. Even my…

I've considered it. Even my buddies who never touched the stuff through HS and College (mostly stayed away bc of sports) started getting into weed pens and stuff in the last few years. They all take it to mellow out, and I'm pretty chill on my own. I always assumed it'd just get the paranoia side effects, bc I'm the type of dude who tries to go to sleep and then lays in bed for 2 hours thinking about an asshole comment I made to a kid when I was in 7th grade.

34 years old, and I've never tried smoking weed. I probably never will -- I'm not above it, I just always worried about messing up my lungs by smoking anything. That said, I'm happy for all of you that will be enjoying this new marijuana freedom. I know I have lots of friends and family who are very happy. Enjoy yourselves!

I also saw that Brady is something like 20-11 going head-to-head against false GOATs and GOAT imitators (Manning, Brees, Big Ben, Brees, Rodgers). Everyone else was hovering around .500 or worse. Maybe the most meaningful stat in the GOAT debate.

11/04/2018 - 9:34am Don Brown is the Ebola…

Don Brown is the Ebola monkey from Outbreak. College football offenses are the immune systems of people who come in contact with said monkey's Ebola strand. That's how I see it.

11/04/2018 - 12:59am I think there's a lot a "meh…

I think there's a lot a "meh" in college football this year, in all conferences. There's a big dropoff once you get past 5 or 6 in the polls. The Big12 and PAC are all meh. The non-Michigan BigTen teams are meh. The non-Clemson ACC teams are meh. Then you have ND, Bama, Georgia, and I'll still include LSU in there despite losing tonight. When teams like Kentucky and Washington State are finding their way into the Top10, it's a down year in college football.

11/04/2018 - 12:50am The middle of OSU's defense…

The middle of OSU's defense is just bad. I've now seen Minnesota, Purdue, and Nebraska all pound the ball down Ohio State's throat. I'm not sure they have an answer. Michigan State is going to give them all they can handle.

11/02/2018 - 7:45pm Unpopular prediction -- we…

Unpopular prediction -- we'll have a little trouble with the mobile quarterback(s) that PSU has. The read option is probably the best play in the game today, and they have a couple capable QBs. Scrambling has also been a bugaboo for our defense, because our DBs play a lot of man and have their backs turned. ND exploited that a bit. I still think we'll win, but I expect some annoying first down conversions on scrambles and so forth -- similar to when we'd play JT Barrett. McSorely is pretty good.

10/30/2018 - 10:36am It's a gross habit, but…

It's a gross habit, but pretty common for guys who played pro sports in Harbaugh's age group. Even Troy Aikman made a comment during the Rams/Packers game Sunday, after they showed a picture of Len Dawson smoking at halftime. He said something like "that's what guys did in the locker room back then, and then in my day everybody had the smokeless tobacco in the locker rooms, and now I don't know what they have -- Twitter I guess."

10/29/2018 - 9:27pm If they're holding him out…

If they're holding him out so that he can help bring future Rashans into the world, then I'm all for it. It worked for the Glasgows.

10/24/2018 - 9:53pm Urban? That you?

Urban? That you?

10/24/2018 - 9:55am I read it differently. I…

I read it differently. I think she was saying that you can't rest all week and then play on Saturday. It's all or nothing -- you don't practice, you don't play. He couldn't rest, even during the week. I don't think it was referring to the intensity of practices.

10/22/2018 - 6:14pm What have we done to…

What have we done to endlessly piss off the Offensive Line Gods?!

I need quotes, give meeeee the quotes

Yeah right, it's not like they could get a Nick Saban level coach. Oh ... Wait ...

10/20/2018 - 6:06pm He can say whatever the fuck…

He can say whatever the fuck he wants. That's the greatest part about beating their ass as a 5th year senior. He doesn't need to worry about next year. He did his job. It's on next year's team to worry about next year.

10/20/2018 - 3:47pm Our fall practice in…

Our fall practice in Antarctica got cancelled. I knew it'd cost us.

In the scope of pregame rivalry shenanigans, this is very mild. Relax people. He's the one who will have to live with that clip if Michigan can't come through today. 

10/20/2018 - 10:24am Is there a limit on how many…

Is there a limit on how many players can travel? And do players who don't dress count against that number? I'm not sure how it all works, but maybe that's a factor. Was Black traveling while he was injured?

That fella playing FB looks like Mason to me.

"Shaevior"? Lol. I like it.

10/14/2018 - 2:11pm He's a college kicker…

He's a college kicker hitting 80%+ of his FGs, and you can line him up from 50+ and feel like you at least have a coin flip chance. That's about all you can ask for in my opinion.

10/13/2018 - 11:12pm That roughing the snapper…

That roughing the snapper call on them really changed the game. Nice to be on the good side of one of those game changing calls.

10/07/2018 - 12:26pm I don't know why, but I…

I don't know why, but I think this is the year we handle Wisconsin. I'm slightly concerned that we don't have a Hurst/Glasgow at DT, and our DT depth is a little thin, but other than that I think having a solid-to-good QB puts us ahead of them. I'm also assuming Gary plays.

10/07/2018 - 2:32am Tarik Black said something…

Tarik Black said something similar right after he broke his foot for the second year in a row.

10/06/2018 - 10:00pm "I'm good" could also be…

"I'm good" could also be referring to his spirits or mental state. "I just had a traumatic injury, but I'm good."

10/06/2018 - 9:28pm Hard to tell if he means…

Hard to tell if he means that his health is good, or he's menatlly "good" after going through a traumatic injury. Kind of vague. Hopefully he's healthy and ready to go though!

10/06/2018 - 6:09pm Can't recall many guys being…

Can't recall many guys being carted off with a rolled ankle. That'd be great if true.

09/30/2018 - 10:23am Fair enough -- I did say he…

Fair enough -- I did say he was limited by QB talent probably (and OL too). You didn't expect Harbaugh to have a more creative offense by the point in his Michigan tenure? After all the creativity he showed at SF and Stanford?

09/30/2018 - 9:47am In years past, I'd say "…

In years past, I'd say " Harbaugh is just keeping things vanilla bc he's going to break out the home run plays for MSU and OSU."  However, after a few years of data, I'd have to say that Nick is correct. I am holding out a little hope that Harbaugh was limited in the past bc of QB talent. I think we saw last night, that Shea gives him more opportunities to get creative. It looks like he could be in the same realm as McSorely if Harbaugh wanted to roll out the "Kaepernick plays." Maybe you only save those play for emergencies to keep Patterson healthy (which I totally understand). I'd love to see Shea picking up first downs with his legs against the rivals though, after so many years of seeing them do that to us in critical situations with Barrett, Lewerke, etc

09/29/2018 - 8:44pm Had to be the wrong number…

Had to be the wrong number called. If not, somebody needs to be suspended. Seriously.

09/23/2018 - 9:53am To be fair, whatever he's…

To be fair, whatever he's doing is clearly working -- whether we like his style or not. After getting (somewhat) snubbed from the playoffs last year, he has even more of a reason to run up scores. His lobbying helped get Florida in the NC over Michigan in 2006. Lobbying and running scores up is working for him. It's not exactly the most "gentleman" thing to do, but it's not illegal either.

09/18/2018 - 4:16pm He doesn't fit what used to…

He doesn't fit what used to be the NFL QB mold (6'4"+, 220+ or whatever) ... But I don't think there's a mold anymore. They're valuing arm talent and mobility more than ever (Trubisky, Mahomes, Watson, Mayfield, etc). I think Patterson has similar natural skills to those guys. So who knows anymore? If the right people start hyping him, he could be a first round pick. He's very similar to Trubisky in my opinion. Trubisky is similar in size, strong arm, mobile (but not a burner), and doesn't have a ton of career starts in college. Trubisky was almost exclusively operating out of the shotgun, only had like 11 career starts, and stll went #2.

09/08/2018 - 10:47am I'd like to see about 30…

I'd like to see about 30 offensive line recruits in the stadium.

09/07/2018 - 9:12pm My biggest concern this year…

My biggest concern this year was offensive line. My next concern was replacing Mo Hurst. He was Aaron Donald for us. Even if we returned 10 of 11 starters, it's hard to imagine the same level of defense without that guy. It's going to be damn near impossible if Solomon is also out, and Dwumfor is indeed way overhyped.

09/03/2018 - 12:51pm Shea Patterson - Running for…

Shea Patterson - Running for His Life. But seriously, our offensive line made Shea and McCaffrey look like the same guy. Frantically clap for the snap, feel pressure instantly, run from the pocket for your life, throw a dart across your body as a wall of defenders climb on your back.

09/02/2018 - 12:07pm I saw Dwumfor out there, but…

I saw Dwumfor out there, but the Dwumfor hype was absent (from what I could tell). I don't think Wimbush could have kept stepping up in the pocket (and occasionally running after stepping up) while Gary/Winovich circled behind him if we had anyone close to a Hurst/Glasgow type. 

09/02/2018 - 9:31am Win or play tight with every…

Win or play tight with every team until OSU, which is when we'll get trucked by Haskins, who is 10x better than Wimbush.

09/02/2018 - 9:17am I'm convinced that nothing…

I'm convinced that nothing matters bc we're all just in a race to see who gets pummeled by Bama. Until something drastic changes in college football, we're stuck in purgatory with all the other struggling "historical programs" -- like Texas, Tennessee, and Notre Dame. It takes about 2 drives for me to say, "welp, this team wouldn't touch Bama." 

09/02/2018 - 12:09am Its all about the team, the…

Its all about the team, the team, the team ... But those who stay, will be champions -- so I can't decide if we're all supposed to join you, or let you die solo 

08/31/2018 - 11:07pm Maybe I'm crazy, but I…

Maybe I'm crazy, but I thought Utah State looked like a decent team. Their offense was pretty good and their tempo messed with MSU. They we're clearly outmatched on the defensive side of the ball, but they made some really nice tackles in the open field. They smacked Scott hard a few times.

08/29/2018 - 11:38pm Maybe the M is exactly where…

Maybe the M is exactly where it should be, and the yard line is off.

08/29/2018 - 9:00am Im not a techie, or a Apple…

Im not a techie, or a Apple hater / Droid truther etc ... but Chromecast audio is pretty sweet. I synced up my entire house -- basement, kitchen, living room, bedroom, garage, deck speakers, pool patio speakers, etc etc. It's great for parties. You can even power the dongle with a power bank, so you can use a battery powered speaker completely wirelessly for yard games and set it right by the cornhole boards or volleyball net. I just wish more apps supported it. Spotify works great with it though.

08/28/2018 - 9:45pm NC State had a running QB…

NC State had a running QB who racked  up decent yardage, and a solid overall run game. ND tried to pass twenty something times and couldn't execute a snap without fumbling. So yeah, like ND and NC State in 2016. I obviously want Michigan to win, but I'd rather have the better OL in a rainy game, and I have a hard time seeing us as having the better OL -- especially with a new Center and QB exchange to worry about.

08/28/2018 - 9:37pm Like Michigan State vs…

Like Michigan State vs Michigan last year.

08/28/2018 - 9:20pm I'd assume rain would help…

I'd assume rain would help the team with the better OL and running game. I'm guessing that favors ND. They have the more mobile QB as well.

08/20/2018 - 2:41pm Thamel is wrong. We've…

Thamel is wrong. We've already received concrete information from a forum poster, who knows a guy, who lives next to Jim Tressel. Thamel does not have ironclad sources like that.
