For pop culture type substance there's Binge Mode from The Ringer (especially if you like Game of Thrones or Harry Potter). Really any of The Ringer Podcast Network podcasts are good.

I would totally read an alternate timeline TWO.

Fair warning to those that don't follow video games as close as I do, but...be careful if you're google image searching for Bowser at the moment. I don't wanna talk about it.

I've gotten a lot of Notre Dame ads too.

09/25/2018 - 8:41am Short answer, yes.

Longer…

Short answer, yes.

Longer answer, I think it's important to protect the players, but there is a way to do it that makes sense.  I understand wanting to keep the money-makers as safe as possible, but not at the expense of the game.  Poor damn Clay Matthews keeps getting penalized for what 99.9% of the football watching populace would call good football plays. Seriously, I'm a Lions fan and I feel bad for the guy. It's gotten to the point that every time the Lions got any kind of hit/sack on Brady on Sunday night I was bracing for the flag. The NFL needs to look at it's shit sooner rather than later.

OSU had one shot to get this right and fire Meyer right away and they blew it. Now the storm is going to keep on coming. Over and over.

This post is bad and you should feel bad.

Dude didn't miss a game the last 3 years, even with his back messed up. Much love and respect to him.

So it comes with a huge POLITICS warning, because that's her actual job, but every Saturday in the fall Jane Coaston (@cjane87) becomes a great Michigan Football follow.

I feel like it would depend on the type of loss. The more shocking unexpected ones I'm sure stick with players longer.

Now Devin Gardner is tweeting about him. Not saying he knows anything specific about the current state of recruiting but he knows more than me. Not helping me temper expectations is all I'm saying.

Nope that's cool, all I really wanted to know. Thanks, Seth!

I refuse to get my hopes up about this...*gets hopes up*

Honest question: I don't need to know WHO but how can you tell? Do they let you guys know? Or they just signing up with their UM email and you can tell by the uniqname?

A part of me thinks that the knowledge that players do see what people say about them will mean posters are less shitty about them as a person. The rest of me is not that naive.

Well we all know that at least some of the coaches/people connected with the program READ the blog...

I would very much like it if Steve Yzerman became the GM of the Detroit Red Wings.

I mean that's true too (about not getting taller). But the NFL ideal is also changing, height doesn't matter as much any more if you can get sideline to sideline. Dude is also JACKED. Like, we all saw the pictures, but seeing him in uniform this year is insane. 

09/10/2018 - 10:12am I can think of at least 2…

I can think of at least 2 early entrants that are pretty much for sure (Gary, Bush), and a couple more that could play their way there (Patterson, Hill).

That just means the band needs to play everything FORTISSIMO!

Awful, he's had a lot of injury issues, poor kid.

I personally have no idea what to predict. I think we'll win, but the score is so hard to pick because we just don't know about the offense yet. If Shea comes out and lights South Bend on fire, then it resets a whole mess of expectations I have for this year.

Oooooo that's the good stuff...pure uncut football preview...oh yesssss...

Wonderfully written.  I always look forward to "The Story" because it means football is around the corner.

To me this is a piece about trying to reconnect to what you love about the sport, because there has been a lot of what I hate about the sport lately.

Hat tip to State News for putting this out there.

This is Harbaugh's most talented team he's had yet. Now let's see if they can put it all together.

08/22/2018 - 3:07pm Yes and no, there are games…

Yes and no, there are games on the schedule they don't need to underachieve to lose.  It is possible that they play their asses off and just come up short.

Not expecting the right thing to come from this.

08/21/2018 - 8:45am It should also be pointed…

It should also be pointed out that these types of transfers have *always* happened, but now we have social media and other dedicated sites so these things get a lot more attention.

20 years ago you probably wouldn't have known, a) he had transferred, and b) he was ever on the team.

Alabama isn't vulnerable until they stop winning championships.

To all those saying that they hope he's suspended longer so he's away from the team longer, I think the onion has a good article for you:

This is what I was trying to say. Thank you.

If that man's actions and/or negligence directly lead to their son's death? They should have a majority of the say.

08/16/2018 - 9:09am Yes.

Yes.

I don't know if you know this, but many, MANY people hate the "pivot to video" and prefer to be able to read things...

Probably way to early to tell that though. Higdon (and potentially Evans) will be gone next year leaving the RB race wide open.

Completely agree. Not what I was trying to say at all, my apologies if I wasn't clear.

Right, I guess what I was saying is that it's probably the easiest spot for a freshman to come in and contribute.

08/15/2018 - 11:06am No, just that he's being out…

No, just that he's being out performed at this point in time.

08/15/2018 - 11:01am RB really is one of those…

RB really is one of those spots you can contribute right away if you've got the talent so this isn't entirely surprising.

UMBig11 did indicate that the chatter he had heard was that it was players that have either graduated, transferred, or left for other reasons so this checks out if that's true.
