The problem is our position in the college football world. 

This kind of 10-2 does not get us in the playoffs.

This kind of 10-2 does not get us B1G championships.

This kind of 10-2 doesn't beat our "rival".

Making moves portraying a belief in achieving those goals (hiring harbaugh with a fat contract) and falling well short of achieving them is a problem. By the measuring stick sold to us, we are failing.

This kind of 10-2 is NOT good enough.

12/09/2018 - 9:06am Holy shit this gets old. It…

Holy shit this gets old. It's the biggest game of the year on the national stage and we got completely pantsed by an elite team, demonstrating how not elite we are. The thing that made that game an outlier was that it was against a real talent.

If fans would take a step back for a moment and look at the state of this fanbase, we are little brother to OSU, and it's really kind of sad. Complaints of "bag men" and resting on our superior academics is the most little brother thing in the world, blaming those things for not being elite.

Honestly, I don't know if it's in the Michigan football culture to be elite, and I'm not talking about an unwillingness to test what you can get away with.

11/25/2018 - 10:55am The thing is, they didn't go…

The thing is, they didn't go back to that motion-to-confuse concept. They used it for a quick score, and abandoned it. The play calling is predictable and we have gotten by this whole season by getting to third down and being able to obtain a first by keeping it manageable. Running into a stacked box once (or twice) and getting ourselves into obvious passing situations works against bad defenses. Having an offense predicated on a QBs ability to throw across his body outside the pocket is not sustainable, as much as this blog would have us believe it is.

That is the most upsetting part about this game on both sides of the ball. Whereas last year we had probably our most creative game of the year against OSU, this year our offense was vanilla and predictable and our defense did nothing to try to cover its most glaring weakness. I am wholly disheartened by the apparent lack of planning that went into this game. Our lines got manhandled, but our coaches got bitch slapped.

What is frustrating about those situations is that the initial attempt to injure Ruiz would not have been flagged if not for the retaliation. We were lucky they decided to throw the flag both ways.

Thanks for this!! I am going to watch my TV so hard on Saturday, Sparty won't know what hit him!

Quickly look at the personnel and make sure there is nothing odd going on... Then my eyes are glued to the line, tells me where to look next.

As a side note, an unfortunate event I witnessed as a repair tech was a brand new (think less than a month) 17" Macbook Pro with a multi-hundred dollar extended warranty being turned down for service because the girl spilled a Coke on it and the warranty didn't cover accidental damage. Her dad b*tched at Apple until they agreed to fix it haha

It was shocking to take off the bottom and see Coke syrup sticking to literally everything in this $2k laptop.

02/13/2018 - 12:49pm ...again, Time Machine is

...again, Time Machine is just a backup system. Any other backup system could do the same thing. A hard drive failure can still just as easily happen on a Mac and result in loss of data, and outside of their embedded SSDs, use the same parts as non-Apple computers (look up the Geforce "Bumpgate"... It affected all systems).

I know a thing or two about the various brands of computers as I was certified to do warranty work on Apple, Dell, and HP systems. HP's were garbage, Dells were surprisingly well put together even with inferior materials, and Apples were, as you notice, very high quality and they demanded best in class service from its subcontractors.

Having said that, they are all prone to the same failures. Macs in particular seem to operate very hot due to poor ventilation, which can cause increased wear on parts.

If you are happy with your Apple, good, but it is disingenous to suggest they are not prone to basic failures or contain some sort of "magic" in Time Machine. I have seen botched updates on Macbooks. I have seen software just stop working in Mac OS. No hardware or software is perfect.

02/13/2018 - 12:31pm Yes, spend triple the amount

Yes, spend triple the amount necessary when the bottom line to your post is to have a backup system.

Dang dude. Talk about an axe to grind. Shut down the computer, go for a walk, you are getting WAY too upset over this.

This makes me think back to the last comments Harbaugh made in the Big Ten last year. "Bitterly disappointed" in the officiating. Hmmmm...

I did a Predator engine swap on my little snowblower on tracks. Haven't tested it yet (of course), but really looking forward to throwing some snow with a Honda clone.

Go to Harbor Freight and buy a little tiny TailGator generator. A little noise, sure, but no worries about running a battery dead. Plus, then you have a way to power the fridge next time the power goes out.…

I think the 20% off coupons work on it, so like $90.

By FAR the most vicious hit I have ever seen in my life. Two LARGE men running full speed at eachother, and coming to a dead stop head first. Scary, but incredible.

10/18/2017 - 2:19pm The same reason why an overly

The same reason why an overly enthusiastic quarterback barking out the cadence can get called for a false start based on head movement. The motion acts to draw the defense offsides.

Motion is a legal movement and any effect it has on drawing the defense offsides is incidental, and no player may be moving toward the line of scrimmage at the snap of the ball, that is an illegal shift.

I had the same reaction. It feels like all of the OSU hype videos where it feels like we didn't beat them last year at their place.

Fiancee has her bridal shower and bachelorette party Saturday, so I will be free to do as I please all weekend (seeing as how she will likely be in bed all day Sunday).

I read an interesting article about companies ditching the majority of their online ad campaigns and seeing no hit to their bottom line. Honestly, who IS clicking on the ads... On purpose?

I always liked Video Studio. Simple, has some neat features, and not too expensive at ~$100.

Coming from a nerd, I will say that it is all about his drive to know this stuff. The best resources are on the internet with some googling down the rabbit hole. It is not always something you can just be taught... It is a passion. Kids these days pick up things faster than we can imagine, so don't be afraid to give him some tools to play around with.

I switched to DirecTV after my cablecard service was getting too expensive for me supplying all my own equipment and I have been very happy. picture quality is fantastic and if you bundle att internet there's no service cap.

That's where my train of thought was going as well, that giving up a few plays like that was not worth disrupting the pass attack. I am sure they will coach it differently with a team that has the skill players to really burn us.

I kind of thought the same thing, but after hit with it SEVEN times. Maybe it was not alarming enough to DB to make a change.

09/13/2017 - 9:11am I was always taught that you

I was always taught that you aren't Reggie White just because you put on your jersey... We have a talented DLine, but if you bust through the interior of the line with no resistence, retrace your steps because the screen is coming. That was a basic concept for us and the fact that they aren't doing it almost makes me think they aren't taught it for some reason.

The more I think about it, the more I know you're right. I have a huge basket by my mail slot that collects all the garbage coming into it, so I almost never pay attention to it. Ooooooh paper mail.

I wondered the same thing myself... Interesting.


09/06/2017 - 12:52pm I had the same thought

I had the same thought regarding the long snapper... No way you are blocking a punt while driving the snapper back without blowing him up the moment he snaps it.

I am a developer at a non-IT company, so I could see it being a culture thing compared to a SV company. Here all of us in IT are second class citizens :)

08/23/2017 - 8:28am What do "females and others"

What do "females and others" have to put up with? I work in IT, there are not a lot of women here... But there is also a huge lack of candidates in coming into the pool. Everything I see, though, outside of the lopsided representation that exists across most technical positions, is an indistinguishable level of respect between men and women.

08/23/2017 - 7:53am Try working in corporate America

I can't speak to smaller companies, but I am sure it is creeping in there now. The things we HAVE to talk about at work are ridiculous, when they should just be private. Do we have to "celebrate diversity" and talk about our sexual orientation or how different cultures make us feel, or can we just all get along and fire the a-holes that can't be professionals?
