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.

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.

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

That defensive line scares the bejeesus out of me.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Why envy a debate when you can start one right here on the internet? For instance, you could say:

"I don't care what anyone else thinks, but (politician/singer/actor/alcoholic drink/city/state/region) is the (greatest/worst/best/cheesiest/ugliest/horniest/) of our time. Anyone who disagrees with me (hates America/is racist/like communism/smells faintly of cheese/is a war criminal)."

Fill that out, post it on the internets, and - BAM!- someone will be there shortly to ineffectually disagree with you before calling you names.

Yeah, short of a video showing Durkin getting knocked out by an assistant coach as he was dialing 911, he's gone.

Not saying this isn't a big loss, but I feel like Wisconsin has an actual tree where they can go pick a fresh, crisp blocking tight end. This tree is adjacent to the All Big 10 Offensive Linemen Grove,

Hmmm.... I get that you are a sports blogger AND that you suffer from an awful disease, but calling yourself an "individual?"  MR. BIG SHOT GETTIN' TOO GOOD FOR US, IS HE? 

Seriously, though: I wish I were in Ann Arbor for this. I'd love to hear about 6 of those panels.

Not sports related, but No Such Thing as a Fish makes my drive home every Friday super enjoyable. 

09/26/2018 - 1:13pm I think one key to…

I think one key to understanding this would be the list of formation codes. Here are the ones I remember (for some reason; I didn't even play football)

For a lot of these plays, the two-digit #s refer to the formation. the first number is how many RBs, and the second is the # of TEs. Since there are five total non QB/non-OL positions, any "Remainder" would be the number of receivers. So:

00= 0 RB 0 TE (5 WR)

22= 2 RB 2 TE (1 WR)

For passing plays, the a three digit number tells you about the play design. The first number is usually the # of steps in the QB's drop, the second number has to do with the routes that the receivers will run, and the third number is the blocking scheme. Someone more knowledgeable could fill in the gaps.

I was just thinking that the audio quality on those later recordings (which would be most likely to have survived) would be utter garbage for this same reason.

I feel like this is the appropriate response to most of the posts around here.

"Tuddies" is easily the second worst thing Penn State has ever done to the world.

Do NOT get me started on Adventure Bay.

- Mayor Goodway has a pet chicken-- in a world with SUBSERVIENT TALKING DOGS and INTELLIGENT, SEMI-COOPERATIVE CATS. This alone should disqualify her.

- Why in the hell is every single municipal service left up to a preteen boy and his team of puppies-- not dogs, mind you, puppies. I have yet to see an adult police man, firefighter, lifeguard, or any other thing most normal cities have.

- What is Ryder's deal? The kid is some sort of tech-genius billionaire who can train and outfit a whole team of dogs multiple times over to fly, spy, and perform underwater rescues with specialized vehicles for each task. Seriously, it is cannon that he built each vehicle and trained each dog in the use of each craft.  What is his motive? Where did his money come from? Where are his parents?

-Speaking of Ryder, he apparently has a team of animators that can drum up an animation of any damn emergency possible. Has an alien child crashed his space craft into a field of watermelons-- WHICH HE HAPPENS TO LOOK LIKE? Just call up clip #276,698 from my library of crazy shit I had someone animate. What do you mean a chicken has managed to get herself trapped on top of city hall? JUST KIDDING; I BOTH ANTICIPATED AND ANIMATED IT.

- Danny needs his ass whooped. Or they should let him die next time he rocket-snowboards himself into a tree and wakes up a hibernating bear or does any of the equally stupid stuff he does trying to be extreme.
