The death penalty is too severe for a program that killed a kid? 

That's an interesting position to take.

Did Seth just out one of his sock puppet accounts with this post?

Switch to HUDL and use the circles that look like fire rings that are in all of the recruiting videos. Add some sick beats and you'll really have something.

09/21/2018 - 12:08pm Any chance the pop-out boxes…

Any chance the pop-out boxes for videos and the yellow box around the player being pointed out in said videos ever returns? 

Having to right-click and open a new window for every video, full screen the video, and then rewind to the beginning of the video while looking for the relevant player makes reading these take quite a bit longer.

09/21/2018 - 11:24am I'm in the same boat. I'm…

I'm in the same boat. I'm really hoping they aren't on the whole show so that I can still enjoy part of it.

09/21/2018 - 10:49am That's a strong argument. I…

That's a strong argument. I'm sure you've convinced everyone with your stunning insight.

09/21/2018 - 10:25am Question about the cyan…

Question about the cyan circles. Didn't JBB end the year with just half a circle because of his prowess at run blocking? Any chance you can bring that back?

09/21/2018 - 9:39am Any chance this we'll get…

Any chance this we'll get another update on bug fixes? It's been nearly a month.

I'm asking because the bug where the Diaries and MGoBoard get unstuck and move to the bottom left of the screen still exists. Happens almost every time I reply to a comment and then have to change the number of replies on the screen back to 100. Getting either one of those fixed would be pretty awesome.

Also, still wondering if there is any chance you can find advertisers who don't look like they're trafficking kidnapped women. I'm assuming we'll never get rid of the swimsuit ads, despite your readership being almost entirely male.

09/20/2018 - 10:59pm He might want to think about…

He might want to think about passing off the Hello posts to another one of his multiple employees, as he is the only person capable of writing the UFR. Or, if he insists on writing the Hello post, he could pass of the Unverified Veracity post to someone else. I would think that by this point in the life cycle of his business he would have a better grasp of time management.

09/20/2018 - 9:58pm I didn't realize Ace helped…

I didn't realize Ace helped write the UFR. 

09/20/2018 - 8:59pm You should unionize so you…

You should unionize so you don't have to do that bullshit.

09/20/2018 - 7:58pm Probably because it is his…

Probably because it is his job. Just like the rest of us somehow drag ourselves to work 5 days a week, he's mostly managed to about 9 UFR's a year.

09/19/2018 - 12:27pm My biggest concern with his…

My biggest concern with his movement is that he doesn't appear capable of running. It looks more like he waddles down the field. To me, that speaks to a lack of flexibility and athleticism. I'm not saying it can't get fixed, but at this point he looks like a guy you wouldn't expect to see on the field until he's a RS JR.

09/19/2018 - 10:47am I've been intrigued by the…

I've been intrigued by the lack of development by football players in lateral agility. It's something we work with tennis players on a lot, and we can get some pretty impressive gains from them. I don't know if football programs just don't work on it the right way, or if the muscle and size gains necessary for the rest of their skill sets prevents them from improving. Or it could just be that "macho" football players aren't willing to do the resistance band work necessary to improve because it isn't about picking up and putting down large weights.

09/19/2018 - 10:26am You can't teach length. He's…

You can't teach length. He's not tall enough and his arms are too short to deal with edge rushers on an every down basis. 

09/19/2018 - 10:19am "moves like someone 50…

"moves like someone 50 pounds lighter near the line of scrimmage and even into the second level."

Were we watching the same film? He looks more heavy-footed and slower than Onwenu. He's absolutely powerful in a small area, but I would imagine they're going to have to take a bunch of bad weight off of him and then rebuild him. It looks like way too much mass is in his gut and not his legs.

09/17/2018 - 7:46pm They put microphones near…

They put microphones near where the band sits. They are not mic'd on the field. Michigan has a sub-par band, and has for quite some time. They're easily in the bottom half of the B1G. There are high school bands with better sound quality.

09/17/2018 - 3:52pm Must be nice to hear the…

Must be nice to hear the band from your seats. I know in the south end zone that about 15 years ago they decided it wasn't important to ever orient towards us so we could hear the show too. Really is a shame that someone decided they wanted concert band volume from a marching band.

09/17/2018 - 9:31am So much vocal fry.

So much vocal fry.

09/10/2018 - 10:48pm At what? 
Definitely not the…

At what? 

Definitely not the best at being a running back, as he is not one of the co-starters.

Probably not the best at blocking, as he isn't brought in on passing downs.

Best dressed? Possibly.

Best cook? Maybe.

Best student? Unknown.

09/10/2018 - 2:29pm Just saw on twitter that the…

Just saw on twitter that the governor of SC is ordering mandatory evacuations for the entire SC coast. Pretty sure Wilmington is going to be absolutely fucked.

09/10/2018 - 1:29pm I'm in Wilmington. Was…

I'm in Wilmington. Was supposed to be moving out of this apartment at the end of the month and onto my sailboat that I've owned for less than six months. Luckily my insurance pays out more than I have in the boat if everything goes wrong. I'll be heading to the marina tomorrow morning to empty it out and secure it as best I can. I leave for a bachelor party in Gatlinburg on Wednesday night, and I'm not sure what I'll be heading back to on Monday.

09/10/2018 - 9:39am I take it you don't read the…

I take it you don't read the posts that the guys write up about new players then? 

09/09/2018 - 11:41pm So we should be thinking of…

So we should be thinking of him as a FB?

09/09/2018 - 9:37pm I guess I was thinking more…

I guess I was thinking more of the height component. Maybe I've just grown accustomed to ents with Butt, Bunting, and Gentry. If a kid is listed at 6'3", I generally assume he's less than 6'2". 

09/09/2018 - 9:27pm Someone who understands this…

Someone who understands this stuff better than me care to explain how 6'3" 215lbs = TE?  That just sounds like the measurements of a WR to me.

09/09/2018 - 3:10pm In college? Not sure why you…

In college? Not sure why you'd want the inferior player.

09/09/2018 - 12:10pm If that's why Michigan…

If that's why Michigan invited her to speak to the team and be a captain, then they should be ashamed of themselves.  

Of course, I don't believe they're petty pieces of shit like you, so I get to be happy about her being there.

09/09/2018 - 12:08pm Which taller QB would you…

Which taller QB would you have rather had than Drew Brees?

09/09/2018 - 11:45am You must be doing some…

You must be doing some extreme projection work there. At this point he's less physically developed, slower, and has a weaker arm. Not to say he can't fix those things, but basically the only thing he has over Shea is his height. 

09/07/2018 - 6:18pm Was trying to listen, but I…

Was trying to listen, but I had to give up. Either my computer and tv are broken, or the audio is just absurdly low for the live parts. The ad reads and the music were easily 50% louder. I tried listening through laptop speakers, headphones, and then with the youtube app on my tv. That worked until the break after the recap of the defense when you nearly blew out my speakers with the difference in volume.

09/07/2018 - 5:01pm Does it seem to anyone else…

Does it seem to anyone else that Harbaugh is convinced that he's the smartest person in the building and he's going to prove it to everyone by running as many different styles of offense at once as he possibly can? It seems that if they would just focus on an offense based on Power with the other stuff as flourishes, they might actually put out a coherent offense. I completely understand that they can't just line up and have a pulling guard on every play, but is there any logical reason to not do that on 70% of the running plays?

09/07/2018 - 3:22pm I don't know if it is just…

I don't know if it is just my settings, but clicking on the diagram actually makes the font smaller and harder to read. Any chance the problem is on your end and it's something that can be fixed for next week?

08/29/2018 - 11:07am Are there supposed to be…

Are there supposed to be pictures or videos around this paragraph? Because there is an inordinate amount of white space.

"Is there hope? There's a modest case for it, maybe. Bushell-Beatty has never looked particularly put-together in his time at Michigan and in there is the main non-Warinner reason for optimism in 2018. Both Warinner and Harbaugh have implied that Bushell-Beatty had not maxed out his determination and professionalism in previous offseasons, and that there had been one of those last-rodeo improvements. Harbaugh:"

And the image link appears to be broken right above the Steuber section.

08/28/2018 - 4:44pm Did the same person who's…

Did the same person who's written these position previews write "The Story" as well? Or was Brian just going through his goth phase when he wrote that and then started ODing on lithium and Jolt Cola before doing these?

08/28/2018 - 11:56am How did I get dragged into…

How did I get dragged into this?

And put me down on the side of thinking that banner is pretty shitty.

I miss the user-created ones and the contests that went with them.

08/27/2018 - 5:05pm "So why has Peters's…

"So why has Peters's offseason been dogged by the same kind of skepticism and transfer expectation that have followed him for his entire college career?"

I wonder if it has anything to do with one of the most important voices in the Michigan media landscape not noticing that Peters wasn't awful in the bowl game until 6 days before the first game of the next season?

08/27/2018 - 2:26pm None of this is new though…

None of this is new though. And Brian's not an idiot, so he had to know that all of this has been going on for years.

08/27/2018 - 1:52pm This post has a place, and I…

This post has a place, and I'm not disagreeing with any of the basic points Brian is making. I just don't understand why he thinks it's the central point to this Michigan season. If he were blogging about MSU, OSU, or Maryland, it would be perfect. But nothing going on at Michigan comes at close to what happened at those schools.

08/27/2018 - 1:49pm I would take your point…

I would take your point except that Brian just said on the podcast that everyone pays players. And he didn't qualify it to exclude Michigan. I don't think Michigan is as egregious about it as other schools, but to say that no player on the sidelines is getting impermissible benefits is just crazy.

08/27/2018 - 1:37pm Why should what happens at…

Why should what happens at other universities impact how I feel about Michigan? If we stuck around after Hoke put Morris back on the field, I think we're all here for the long haul.

And you know what? I stuck around because I don't care who the coach is. I enjoy watching the players. I enjoy seeing them celebrate wins and come back from losses. Witnessing world-class athletes do extraordinary things with 100,000 of my closest friends is what is important to me.

Man turns his fandom of college sports into a thriving business.

Same man is frustrated that college sports is a business.

Writes post about Iowa.

08/25/2018 - 2:17pm That makes sense. I've seen…

That makes sense. I've seen pictures of him at a mic, and he gets close, so it would follow that he would make contact with it. Need to have him watch some twitch streams so he can get some tips.

And yes, I'm 38 and know what a twitch stream is. 

But yeah, it has continued throughout the entire thing. Maybe the hair cutting bet should include Brian this year.

08/25/2018 - 1:19pm Seth, can you please figure…

Seth, can you please figure out what is making that very distracting noise during the DT talk? And then punch whomever is doing it if they ever do it again.

Based on all of your hours of observing practice?

08/24/2018 - 7:38pm Brian's not going to notice…

Brian's not going to notice one or two more.

Mentions the podcast 3 times.

Does not tell us when the podcast is going up.

Not a DUDE.

08/24/2018 - 5:19pm They fired him. Which means…

They fired him. Which means it does not reflect poorly on the institution.

08/24/2018 - 1:53pm So he's the offensive…

So he's the offensive version of Hoke?

08/24/2018 - 1:18pm One of the guys said, on…

One of the guys said, on twitter, that it has been recorded. Not sure if it will be released this weekend or if they're waiting to release on Monday.
