The entire coaching staff appears to be of the highest Gandalf-type quality.

Is this game even on BTN+?

11/09/2018 - 10:56am Just re-read the section on…

Just re-read the section on the linebackers a few times.

 

Then ask yourself "how is it POSSIBLE to put up those numbers?!?"

 

BIG TEN.

11/07/2018 - 10:15pm I'm in favor of all of that,…

I'm in favor of all of that, plus I'd like to take out Montezuma too since I had Taco Bell and several Coronas tonight.

 

Beat Rutger.

And here I was sure that the bonus stop was Piscataway, N.J., the home of our rival. Beat Rutger.

11/05/2018 - 9:52am The political stuff being in…

The political stuff being in podcast form makes me appreciate this site more, not less.

 

Why?  Because it's trivially easy to just ignore it if it's not something of interest.

 

Unlike, say, the six thousand political commercials during each of this weekend's football games, which cannot be ignored if you're watching the game live and don't have the remote handy.

Regardless of who wins or loses I plan to party like it's 1999 when election season is over.  Bring on the stupid Christmas-themed jewelry and car ads!

11/02/2018 - 4:57pm I remember reading Dr. Z…

I remember reading Dr. Z faithfully in SI every week as a kid since my dad had a subscription.  I didn't always agree with him -- what kid who thinks he knows pretty much everything would? -- but I definitely soaked in what he had to say and it made me a better student of the game.

 

I think that he faded quite a bit from the public consciousness due to the world changing from print to digital and the fact that he survived so long after his stroke.  That doesn't mean his legacy should be forgotten.

RIP Z.

10/30/2018 - 8:47pm Rooting interests are always…

Rooting interests are always 1.  Michigan, 2.  Whoever is playing tOSU, 3.  Whoever is playing Sparty, 4.  Whoever is playing Notre Dame.

 

Just win out and things will take care of themselves.  Start by beating Penn State.

10/30/2018 - 4:30pm So he's not just a blocky…

So he's not just a blocky-catchy guy, but also kind of a runny-thumpy-thwacky guy.

Jack of all trades, sounds like a winner to me.

10/19/2018 - 7:06pm Probably have a couple…

Probably have a couple Founders Solid Golds with pizza, maybe have a lil Templeton Rye later.

10/16/2018 - 7:01pm He looked functional during…

He looked functional during last week's game, coming in after Tate was injured.  Doesn't have a rocket arm, not exceptionally athletic, but he made a few plays.  Tough year for Arizona.

10/10/2018 - 5:17pm Isn't one of the likely OG…

Isn't one of the likely OG recruits also been talked about as a potential center?  If I'm remembering that right, is it Rumler?

10/08/2018 - 8:12pm It would be quite something…

It would be quite something if the books tripped up Book.

10/07/2018 - 11:21am However tall he is about 99%…

However tall he is about 99% of it is HEART.

 

Or maybe grit, I have a hard time telling those apart.

 

I enjoy watching Tru play.

09/30/2018 - 7:58pm Does he have a year left?  …

Does he have a year left?   You only have 5 years to play 4.

 

(My initial reaction was to post "quit drinking and go to bed", but then I looked at the clock.)

09/28/2018 - 6:58pm LaCroix, straight no chaser…

LaCroix, straight no chaser.

May break out some Templeton Rye later, but I got work to do.

09/23/2018 - 8:02am You guys just wait, once…

You guys just wait, once they #fencethegarden Rutgers will approach Illinois levels of competency.

 

Maybe.

09/20/2018 - 7:35pm Do you guys know if Ann…

Do you guys know if Ann Arbor Torch & Pitchfork is open late?  I forgot to restock after Notre Dame.

09/17/2018 - 8:37pm Bah, tea leaves are…

Bah, tea leaves are overrated.  COFFEE is for closers.

09/12/2018 - 8:25pm So much this.  I'd like DPJ…

So much this.  I'd like DPJ to score six TDs, get 300 yards and superman while pointing at the haters.

 

And yes, winning the game would be nice too.

09/10/2018 - 7:33pm I dunno about the fit, but I…

I dunno about the fit, but I like to see MOAR speedy quick twitch guys.  There's always a spot somewhere for a home run hitter.

09/09/2018 - 11:08am Thumbs up for informative…

Thumbs up for informative and well-crafted thread title.

 

Would be nice to pick up Jackson.

08/31/2018 - 9:48am I for one am PUMPED after…

I for one am PUMPED after reading that Greg Mattison presser, LFG

Happy Friday and c'mon Utah State make things interesting tonight.

08/25/2018 - 6:21pm Templeton Rye, on the rocks,…

Templeton Rye, on the rocks, with some orange fizzy water.  At least that's what I'll be having an hour from now when dinner is cleaned up and Hawaii-CSU hits the screen.

08/25/2018 - 3:44pm 5 star talent, glad to beat…

5 star talent, glad to beat out those other schools for his services.

08/24/2018 - 1:32pm Two tackle-sized dudes from…

Two tackle-sized dudes from Clarkston, Michigan in the national top 10?

 

Is this bizzaro world?

08/20/2018 - 4:41pm iirc they only have one…

iirc they only have one scholarship QB, a redshirt freshman who's obv never played.

 

Still smdh that Vicious Vic couldn't win the job.

08/20/2018 - 4:38pm Agreed, and add Larry Prout…

Agreed, and add Larry Prout Jr. to that list.

08/20/2018 - 4:37pm That's a really well done…

That's a really well done statement, no surprise from someone as measured and well spoken as Grant Newsome.  The young man has unlimited potential and I look forward to voting for him for President in 2038 or so.

08/20/2018 - 1:57pm I dunno how many eggs you…

I dunno how many eggs you gotta eat to get yolked like that but dayum that's impressive.

08/16/2018 - 12:16pm Fire everyone, burn it all…

Fire everyone, burn it all down, build a nature preserve on top of the ruins.  Then burn that down too and sell the lot to Walmart so that the circle of life can continue.

08/13/2018 - 11:17pm Chris Evans' hair is spec…

Chris Evans' hair is spec-freaking-tacular.

 

He's also a pretty darned good RB and I'm hoping for a monster season.

08/13/2018 - 3:24pm If the team needs an expert…

If the team needs an expert in the area of selecting and obtaining many sandwiches, I'm available. 

 

Seriously, though, if this young man can maintain his athleticism at 280 or so he's going to be a candidate for sleeper of the decade.

08/10/2018 - 2:56pm C'mon man, you know…

C'mon man, you know fullbacks don't eat boneless skinless chicken breasts.  Especially fullbacks that look that THAT.

08/10/2018 - 10:01am Another thumbs up for…

Another thumbs up for Youtube TV.  It's worked great for me.

08/09/2018 - 10:14pm Grant Newsome is going to…

Grant Newsome is going to have to change his number so he and Larry can be on the field at the same time.

 

Great picture.

08/09/2018 - 9:22pm I don't really have any…

I don't really have any helpful advice, but I will say this:  Man, I wish Panasonic still made plasmas.  I have an adequate LED model but would dump it in a heartbeat for a Panny.

08/09/2018 - 8:37pm Is it his fault that he…

Is it his fault that he bought non-refundable plane tickets?  Besides, Bolivia is beautiful this time of year.

 

Seriously though, who cares?  He's not on the committee that's "investigating" Urbz and since no heads are going to roll regardless why not take a week off?

08/08/2018 - 8:02pm This year there is actually…

This year there is actually a WR coach, though, and McElwain actually has a background in the subject area.  Let's see how 2018 goes.

08/03/2018 - 9:32pm I'm gonna miss Ol' Doug.

I'm gonna miss Ol' Doug.

08/02/2018 - 4:46pm the app the app the app

 

the app the app the app

 

At least if it could function anything like the old app.  I have no idea if that's possible with 3.0.

Lane Kiffin will be awesome.

According to twitter, looks like Zak Zinter is visiting for the BBQ.

07/27/2018 - 12:14pm I'd be interested to hear…

I'd be interested to hear Magnus's take or from those in the know, but I would imagine that some of the who dat visitors are there with higher rated teammates or are from schools where the staff is looking to build relationships.  Might even be a few where the visit might be kind of a favor/ boost toward getting a look from the MAC.

 

Dunno how it's been historically, but I think they should be able to bring in a pretty good crowd and still give the top guys plenty of individual attention.

07/27/2018 - 12:06pm Eh.

 

Of all the…

Eh.

 

Of all the incredibly inept stuff the MSU BoT has done, I don't think this really rates.  At all.  The Sparties I know will collectively shrug their shoulders and say 'what's the big deal about the trustees going to a game?'

07/23/2018 - 4:14pm The best thing about this…

The best thing about this decommit is the timing.  It's early enough that there are other options that aren't yoinking a 2 star from the MAC.

Good luck to the young man, except when/if playing Michigan.

07/18/2018 - 2:41pm YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS…

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

07/14/2018 - 3:35pm If I were hired as the next…

If I were hired as the next president of The Michigan State University one of the very first things I would do would be to fire Beekman.

 

(I'm probably not going to be hired as the prez of MSU).

I enjoyed trying to guess what this thread would be about.

 

Sadly, my guess of "re-posting threads linking the same article over and over" was not a very good one.
