As a Colts fan, I really want Devin Bush to join Darius Leonard at LB. That would be an insane combo.

01/18/2019 - 1:43pm Unless the BC job opens up,…

Unless the BC job opens up, it doesn't make sense for him to leave anyway. He's here to learn at the feet of Don Brown and Harbaugh, and I'd imagine he'd want to be here for at least two years.

01/18/2019 - 1:33pm I laugh at the idea of Ty…

I laugh at the idea of Ty Damn Law-- a man who terrorized me as a Colts fan-- not being "Michigan" good. The coaches telling him he's *maybe* a third rounder kinda makes me mad-- dude was good.

My plan to add Brandon Graham and Chase Winovich to the Colts is coming together.....

01/17/2019 - 1:24pm I think the implication is…

I think the implication is that Mattison will be retired by then.

01/10/2019 - 12:05pm Crap- you are right. I…

Crap- you are right. I actually think Rosen is a good QB, but I didn't consider some place like New England. That would be the *perfect* place for him.

I still don't think it makes sense to turn the #10 pick into the #36 pick or whatever unless you think he's not any good.

01/10/2019 - 12:02pm Murray is 21 years old. He's…

Murray is 21 years old. He's probably 3-4 years away from the majors-- if he makes it at all. If they take him in the top-half of the draft, he'll get at LEAST a 12 million dollar signing bonus-- three times what he's having to give back to the A's. He won't hit free agency in the MLB until he's 27-28-- meaning he would have ONE shot at a legit contract. In the NFL, if he's any good, he'll be in the middle of his second contract by then.

Unless he's a top-50 MLB player, chances are the NFL will pay him a decent bump above what he'll get as an NFL QB. And considering that he'll triple his money upfront makes this gamble make a ton of sense for him.

 

01/10/2019 - 11:54am I am not so sure that he has…

I am not so sure that he has much of a future in baseball--- I was suprised he was picked so high.

01/10/2019 - 11:52am What could they get for…

What could they get for Rosen? He's kind of a Douche and didn't show much last year. This feels like a Lions move all the way.

01/04/2019 - 8:11am What is this? People being…

What is this? People being civil on the internet? If this keeps going, I am going to have to post my crazy-ass Federal Reserve conspiracy theories and call someone Hitler.

12/26/2018 - 9:13am Switzerland is small and…

Switzerland is small and neutral! We are more like Germany: ambitious and misunderstood!

12/26/2018 - 9:05am I'm Scruffy, the Janitor.

I'm Scruffy, the Janitor.

I've never seen you before, neither.

I love me some 538 normally, but I am not a big fan of the "ELO" ratings. This certainly the kind of ad hoc, zero-expertise take that Nate Silver hates, but I find it to be more confusing and generally less accurate than DVOA and other fancy stats. I have no idea if that's true, but it seems that way. I do know that every year, the I have to figure out what the heck ELO is trying to do, sorta understand it, then immediately forget it.

a "slow-motion blowout" is also what happened to me this time when I ate half a giant wheel of days-old cheese in grad school.

11/16/2018 - 12:50pm I imagine the conversation…

I imagine the conversation went like this:

Harbaugh: We are excited for you to visit! Anything we can do to make your trip special?

Keegan: Yes. I want to get a feel for the day-to-day experience of being a player. I want to come and see the o-line coaching in the middle of the week. I want to see how the offensive line is coached and taught and prepared for a game.

Harbaugh: So... you want to come and see the best offensive line coach in the country to see if he is good at coaching?

Keegan: Yes.

Harbaugh: (stifling gleeful laughter) I suppose we can make that work, yeah.

11/16/2018 - 8:26am This is just a defense…

This is just a defense mechanism. They think OSU is going to lose, so they are hoping to have it over quickly instead of losing a close one that takes it to the end. Also, if Michigan wins by more that 20, they can be mad at Michigan for running up the score.

11/14/2018 - 8:11am Getting to #12 on a bunch of…

Getting to #12 on a bunch of slip screens, slants, and other short passing stuff is actually REALLY damn impressive.

11/14/2018 - 8:06am That defensive line scares…

That defensive line scares the bejeesus out of me.

11/08/2018 - 3:33pm This is a dumb opinion. …

This is a dumb opinion.  This is like saying "Carrots shouldn't be in Chicken Noodle Soup. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT WOULD BE CALLED."

Man, that show is just the worst.

11/08/2018 - 2:21pm Gotta be honest: Creeper guy…

Gotta be honest: Creeper guy is doing a fine job of standing in for me in these pictures.

11/08/2018 - 12:55pm I always post my dream…

I always post my dream scenario-- so here it is, again!

Setup: 11 Conferences of 10 teams each. No more independents. Each stadium required to hold 25K.

Each team plays 8 conference games and two non-conference games. FCS games no longer count.

11 Conference Champions and 5 at-large bids play a 16-team playoff.

  • First Three games are played at the higher seed's home field. Championship Game at a neutral site.
  • Each team plays four games. Top eight seeds are guaranteed two home games regardless of out come.

Teams 17-32 play a second tournament. Each team plays four here too. Difference is: each team gets two home games-- up to and including the championship game. Top seed gets to decide where the games are played.

Teams 33-100 are randomly assigned two additional games one home, one away.  This way, we'd get to see weird games like "LSU at BGSU" that would never otherwise happen.

whose beard was so long he could tuck it!

You have never been involved with software or web development I guess.

Caress LeVert is Caris's creepy twin brother.

I am so sorry. How did you survive Voldemort?

11/05/2018 - 8:00am I actually think it makes a…

I actually think it makes a lot of sense that Brian et al. would cover the Regents race, I just wish it was, like, Rutger weekend or the bye week. Damn you, Big Ten schedulers!

I have a deep craving for some fresh, hot Penn State whoopin' coverage.

11/02/2018 - 4:17pm Someday, I want to see the…

Someday, I want to see the Full HARBAUGHHH lineup: 5 O-Linemen, 2 FB, 3 TE, and Gentry in at QB.

 

11/01/2018 - 8:09am As a Nuggets fan, I really…

As a Nuggets fan, I really wanted Joe Harris or Caris to become our 3 of the future. I think both are smart players that can shoot-- and Playing next to Jokic is basically a one-way ticket to open shots.

I like it! Would love to see a women's version too.

I still have no idea how MSU is ranked above us in basketball.

I scrolled straight to the metrics and laughed. Winovich was insane, but so was everything else. That was a crushin'.

During Harbaugh's podcast this week, he talked about getting the team rested and mentioned that Wednesday was going to be a full practice for the backups.

I keep telling you: Green Eggs and Ham and Cat in the Hat aren't novels. Still nice to see someone tackling adult illiteracy at your advanced age.

I watch the occasional SNL clip, and I still had no idea this guy was on SNL.

I think you mean 14/14.

I have no idea how it would work, but it would be a total boss move If Warde could call them up and say, "If you are willing to become the Wolverines, we have some sweet branding rights y'all could borrow."

10/24/2018 - 3:23pm Yup. Nationally, 538 was…

Yup. Nationally, 538 was dead on. If I remember correctly, they slightly overestimated voter turnout among minorities, mostly in a few key cities in Michigan, PA, and Wisconsin. 

10/24/2018 - 8:34am Agreed! Then you could trade…

Agreed! Then you could trade Slay to the Colts and not even notice!

I'd believe he's 5'9", actually. didn't really notice his being short until I read this comment.

10/23/2018 - 8:19am I had the same thought. You…

I had the same thought. You'd think there would have been about ALL of the MAC and half the American would have been all over this guy.

10/22/2018 - 3:19pm It just occured to me that…

It just occured to me that MSU - Michigan is much like the civil war:

Michigan: Wears Blue; is the bigger faction with greater resources; also has other stuff going on and may not realized quite how ticked off the other side is.

MSU: Smaller but louder, less educated, and willing to go way, WAY further for victory than the other side suspects; also has Jon Reschke.

Harbaugh: Is Sherman marching towards the sea.

10/22/2018 - 1:03pm I forgot who tweeted it, but…

I forgot who tweeted it, but Devin looked liked he could have played that whole game without pads. He just lost his mind and I loved it.

A little Marcus Ray context for everyone.

 

You don't make money talking about football because you got run off WTKA because your takes are too stupid. I make money because I put the work in. You haven't put in any work since 1997. https://t.co/l9qjJrNgqo

Reminds me of when we used to sing a song from Rent in choir and me and a couple of friends would randomly just add a soft "AAAAAAIIIIIIIDS" every now and then, like it was a separate baritone part of the song. Man, we were such jerks.

10/19/2018 - 12:21pm Getting Crouch, Keegan, and…

Getting Crouch, Keegan, and Harrison would just be the best. Two top-30 talents and a top-150 OT? Yes please.

10/19/2018 - 9:26am Thank goodness. I didn't get…

Thank goodness. I didn't get the Momento reference either. I can't make heads or tails of it.

10/16/2018 - 8:06am Huh. I would have thought…

Huh. I would have thought Michigan State had a lockdown on the nickname "DB U."

Also, I love how we have the chance to see an Olive get crushed by a Grape-- both of which are well over 300 LBS.

I can't help but think that Alex Hornibrook would have a couple of Heismans if his parents had named him Randy.
