How? I think they have few draws  especially compared to Harbaugh.

Academics:  Michigan >> Nebraska

Tradition:  Michigan > Nebraska

Coaching Achievement:  Harbaugh > Frost

Coaching Staff:  Michigan > Nebraska

Location:  Ann Arbor > Iowa City > South Bend > Lincoln

The only thing I can think of that enables a success at Nebraska is the West Division. Someone has to be the the Yin to Wisconsin’s Yang.

Actually it is my birthday, and co-incidentally, it is my son’s birthday, born exactly 34 years to the day after me. Best birthday present ever! Plus he’s the middle child, and I love that this happened, for him too.

You missed steps 1 and 2 of the process, a bunch of times (not quite half) . . .

05/14/2018 - 7:51pm Try Mike’s Bike Tour. Been on

Try Mike’s Bike Tour. Been on it twice and you hit he highlights with English speaking tour guides who, most of the time, are pretty funny. Starts at the old center by the glockenspiel.

Goes through Englischer Garden, the Olympic Park, a bunch of WWII spots, other scenic locations, lunch at the world’s largest beer garden. Finishes at Hofbrau Haus.

Great few hours if you have the time, where you can take in a lot. Easy ride. Then you can go back and visit “if needed”, some of the spots. They actually stop for 10-15 minutes a couple of places so you can go inside or take pics. I highly recommend it.

05/12/2018 - 10:24am I think it’s always a hearty

I think it’s always a “hearty competition” with Harbaugh in charge. It may have been some “extra” effort to get Shea, but i’s also a lot of effort to get 4-star, high-school kids that may never crack the lineup. Coach is going to craft the best team he can. He is willing to put in a lot of effort regardless of the outcome through the subsequent competition.

He went and got Ruddddock and he started right away. He went and got O’Korn and he didn’t. No way is Shea “guaranteed” to be the starter.

04/17/2018 - 5:47pm I am sure he's coaching up

I am sure he's coaching up our WRs, but yeah, too much of this for my liking.  Sounds like this is a 1 year thing and he's just here to gain inside intel:

    "Stand in the background and see how something’s operated"

    "I came in to learn and learn what Pep’s teaching"

    "Any opportunity from that standpoint "

    "We’ve learned from him (Harbaugh)"

    "There’s a lot of things that I’ll take with me"

    "I just look forward to continually learning."

    "This is another opportunity for us to get a little bit better"

 

And he'd rather be somewhere warmer and will use this in recruiting battles:

    "The ol’ ‘it’s not usually like this.’(in regards to the cold) I gotcha. Sure"

I heard they were Sodium-tipped missles. The fact that it rained salt for hours at 2 of the locations would seem to confirm.

04/13/2018 - 7:16pm Maybe Coach Beilein will

Maybe Coach Beilein will stick around at Michigan at least long enough to coach against his son at Sienna. Looking for Warde to get Sienna on the schedule for the ‘28-29 season.

They’ve only coached against each other once, and that was an exhibition.

Agreed. Pay him from now until he wants to retire. He’s (re)built a program, not just taken some teams to the pinnacle. Hoping he’s around for many more years.

For reference:
Jim Boeheim - 73
Mike Krzyzweski - 71
Leonard Hamilton - 69
Roy Williams - 67
Lon Kruger - 65
John Beilein - 65
Tom Izzo - 63

Hilarious.  Same for me.  Haven't listened to 97.1 in probably 3 years due to XM, but pulled up Valenti's take after Syracuse, off youtube.  I don't really care that much about MSU, except to hear when they're in disarray.

Next they’ll start changing the rules for punts and punt receptions. Not sure what the point of kickoffs will be anymore other than to fit in more commercials between a score and the offense taking possession.

11/09/2017 - 7:44pm Because they're my team.

Because they're my team. Winning isn't everything. Some of us like to watch the variety of play calls, or a great catch downfield, or a runner breaking tackles left and right. A diving interception or a big sack. Lots of fun stuff to watch even if you know we're going to win. Be happy for the kids and the team. A win is a win. Nothing comes "easy" even if it looks that way.

10/22/2017 - 9:04am If you don't give the QB a

If you don't give the QB a chance to execute, you are ruining him. Bad habits, messing with his internal clock, breaking his confidence. Having to step up in the pocket or scramble on every play is not running the offense. It's trying to survive and somehow cobble together a win.

You don't want to put a college-inexperienced QB in a situation where he cannot execute what you give him.

If you're human I guess find a poncho to wear.  If he's fine, you should be fine.

Good point about the temp.  High to mid 70s all evening.  If you were a poncho, the game should be fine. 

If the rain and wind hampers State's passing game, I have full confidence in our D-line and LBs.

The good news is, that as we get closer to gametime, the rain is coming later and later. The bad news is they're probably getting more and more accurate with their forecast.

Went from rain all day, to rain after 3, now to rain 39% chance around 8:00. By 9:00, we won't be able to tell the difference between the rain and Sparty tears

So cool.  Interesting you can see the pretty-much-like-today tunnel entrance in that 3rd picture. Looks about 75% capacity already back then (what was capacity, about 70k?).  Yost was a visionary like no other.

Thanks for finding and sharing!

"If true, I agree . . . actors, operated to commit a fraud".  Sounds like an admission of guilt!  How can he later say, well, I was one of the bad actors and part of these schemes, but I wasn't committing fraud. 

I am pretty sure the FBI evidence will be enough, but I think it's funny he made this statement as "Coach-2".

You know what else this guy deserves?  How about jailtime.  Even if the assistants are the ones charged with bribery, what if Pitino and other head coaches knew about the scheme (yeah, what if) and took kickbacks as part of the deal?  Maybe these assistants sing like birds.

Think any others at these universities getting paid on the back end have been claiming these kickbacks on their taxes.  IRS interested?

I prefer 10 in the Big 10. Now that we're at this point, it's unrealistic to think we're losing teams.

I say, leave as it is. Eventually, someone like Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, or all 3, will start competing for the West title, somewhat consistently. Someone has to beat Purdue, Indiana, Rutgers, Illinois each year. If they get a few shots at the B1G title game instead of Wisconsin, they'll be able to sell that to recruits and build a competitor to Wisconsin. Then we'll someday have Michigan, Ohio State and maybe a 3rd, consistently going up against Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota. The West will get better. It'll just take time. You can't realign now. Maybe when we eventually (unfortunately) go to 16 teams.

I think we want Florida to end up the season around 8-4 or 9-3 so that they appear to be a quality opponent.  One less opportunity for them to look good.  Wish they could have found a way.  Oh well.

09/06/2017 - 2:15pm Seems like some smart U-M

Seems like some smart U-M grad could figure out a solution. Maybe ask Coach Harbaugh. He seems to be able to figure out legal ways around written rules.
