Seems crazy to me to put a guy on the Heisman watch list when you have not even seen him play in the offense he is going to direct, especially when it is not clear he has even won the starting job, although that seems likely.  If he is even in the discussion for the trophy at the end of the year, this will be an awesome season, because we know the defense will be a championship unit.

06/19/2018 - 9:05am I don’t know how this works…

I don’t know how this works and didn’t bother to follow the explanation posted,  but I obsessively check this daily and fervently hope we can eradicate all remaining Ohio State territory and win whatever it is we hope to win here.  

06/17/2018 - 7:00am I think Ohio State had an OL…

I think Ohio State had an OL named Kirk Loudermilk some time within the last ten or so years, so I guess you are not required to play for WI with that name.

06/16/2018 - 5:56pm Did he have a conflict or…

Did he have a conflict or some other reason to cancel?  Or did he say he had no interest in Michigan, so no use taking an official?  Or are we left to speculate at this time?

He consulted with that kid from MSU who played 6 or 7 years for advice.

I sure hope the loss of one doofus doesn’t mean more of the other doofus (a pirate, maybe?) who says “sweet” in his high pitched voice. I hit “mute” whenever that abomination comes on.

05/19/2018 - 12:58pm Come on Joe!

Would love to see Burrow play better that the guys he left behind in Columbus.

05/19/2018 - 12:55pm It’s a widespread problem

As profits began to shrink the the news business, companies started to pare staff. The big push now is to get stuff published online as fast as possible, and Often no one other than the author reads it. There used to be multiple editors who reviewed every story, and all it took was one to catch an idiotic statement or a blatant error. Now, the error shows up online if the author got it wrong. Big stories get fuller treatment, but sloppiness has become ubiquitous through journalism.

05/17/2018 - 12:53pm Back

Meet target. He sure likes to talk.

05/16/2018 - 12:20pm Smartest thing they have done

Pay the victims. Get this out of the newspapers and try to move on.

05/16/2018 - 12:17pm The Answer

Bring in Shea Patterson. Let’s hope it is the right answer.

05/15/2018 - 8:44am Police

Wow, Ann Arbor has a lot of cops. And they show up really quickly. That’s a good thing.

05/14/2018 - 8:33am Not sure where your son applied

But there was a recent article in the WSJ the gist of which was that most private schools sell tuition the way auto makers sell cars: no one pays sticker price. I got the sense that costs are so high a lot of people are eschewing private schools for in state public schools, so the private schools (except the most elite, I assume) have countered with sometimes massive discounts.

05/14/2018 - 8:24am Perhaps it wasn’t just Saban’s calls

Perhaps he saw how badly our OL was playing? Improve the OL play, start beating our rivals with some frequency, and this fixes itself. Kids who can go anywhere want to play for a winner.

05/09/2018 - 8:17am Any sporting event

You could have a litany of similar complaints about any pro football or baseball season. Why do people go? Because it is more fun being at the game, engrossed in the action, than watching at home. It is more fun sharing the experience with 40 or 70 or 100 thousand people than your wife and kids, who are probably not paying much attention in the family room. It is more fun walking the old campus, visiting your old haunts, remembering good memories.

05/08/2018 - 8:36pm Late to the party

OSU people finally figured out this guy is a jerk. The rest of us have known this for years.

05/08/2018 - 4:17pm The history eraser button!

Can we set that to just erase the last 10 years of college football?

05/08/2018 - 12:47pm Grad transfer

He can play this fall, and has two years available. Someone may get a pretty good QB, and two years of him. If Haskins goes down, OSU may have a problem at QB with a RS freshman backing him up.

05/06/2018 - 2:26pm Ryan Mallett

But, you know, level-headed.

05/06/2018 - 10:02am Try baseball?

I have no doubt LeBron could fail at baseball just like MJ failed at baseball. But there have been musings by people from time to time that he should try football and play TE. Wisely, he has focused his attention on basketball.

05/05/2018 - 4:19pm Rick Mahorn

If you were not a Pistons fan, he was the dirtiest player around.

05/05/2018 - 10:28am Spurned the Cardinals?

The Angels offered him a ridiculously long contract for an absurd amount of money. It isn’t as if the offers were remotely competitive. Don’t kid yourself, in his situation, you would have done the same thing.

05/02/2018 - 6:32pm Paul Hornung

If anyone is old enough to remember the “Golden Boy” from ND. Set scoring records because he played halfback and was the kicker (some other players back then also kicked and played offense or defense). Played 9 years, rushed for under 4,000 yards. Adored because of his blonde hair, college pedigree and the fact he played on a dynasty, which was built on great players other than him and the coaching of Vince Lombardi.

05/02/2018 - 6:04pm Bradshaw

My favorite quip about Bradshaw (can’t remember who said it) was that he couldn’t spell “cat” if you spotted him the “c” and the “a”.

04/30/2018 - 12:40pm Really encouraging recap

Well, except for the offensive tackle position. If our tackles can just get to average, this team should be very good. If Newsome is able to play, RT will work out. People don’t seem too optimistic about that, unfortunately.

04/28/2018 - 3:55pm Good points, but

The thing I cannot quite understand is how spooked the NFL was by this even after medical teams from both Harvard and Michigan cleared Mo. So maybe not round 1or 2, maybe not even 3, but how not a single team felt he was worth a fourth round pick boggles my mind. I figured someone overnight would look at the list of available talent and conclude it would be nuts not to use a fourth round pick on a guy with first round talent, even with some risk.

04/25/2018 - 2:46pm More disrespect

He didn’t mention MSU and Dantonio. Bulletin board material in E Lansing.

04/25/2018 - 2:39pm Not just Ann Arbor

The popularity of the backup QB is a widespread phenomenon.

04/23/2018 - 11:20am I think you meant to say

Man, it feels like years since we went into the off season with a really good returning starter at QB, at least one who could throw effectively.

04/22/2018 - 7:49pm Royals suck

White Sox suck. Tigers play both like 19 times. Their record will look better than it will actually be.

04/20/2018 - 11:15am That is awesome

One of the funniest comments I have read here in a while.

04/19/2018 - 3:19pm Wait, what?

There is a nihilist Arby’s account on Twitter? Whoa. Yet another reason to avoid Twitter—Although it does sound potentially pretty funny.

04/15/2018 - 8:34pm Tax form 4868

That’s all you need to know. Automatic four month (I think it’s four months) extension to file your return. Just file it by Tuesday, and pay what you owe, if anything.

04/15/2018 - 9:33am Why be optimistic?

Because pessimistic is no way to go through life, especially in something like sports.

04/11/2018 - 1:04pm Now what do we do?

There had to be a good two weeks of posts by people drawing dramatic conclusions from whatever we might have seen on Saturday. Need new content!

04/10/2018 - 3:55pm These Ole Miss people are idiots

This is like the bullshit at MSU (nowhere near as outrageous, or criminal, obviously). But in each instance, someone is making stupid decisions. They need to get beyond this stuff quickly, not prolong it. The smart move is to say nothing in response to the transfer requests, or say simply “we do not agree with the applicants’ claims, but we have no objection to their eligibility.” I hope every recruiter reminds high school kids how Ole Miss treated their players for years and years to come.

04/09/2018 - 8:30am Exactly!

Austin Painter too. Kind of a stretch to say it was worth bringing either of those guys in.

04/08/2018 - 9:25pm You’re not old

Wait until all the guys playing pro ball were born after you graduated college. Then you can say you are old.

04/06/2018 - 5:02pm Just trying to keep the witnesses favorably disposed

She is going to be questioned quite a bit, I am sure they want her thinking good thoughts about her former employer, so they are going to be nice to her.

04/05/2018 - 2:10pm Impressive review

I was surprised when I saw the first post about this commitment, it seemed early to be taking a middling three star. But reading this welcome post, this guy is an impressive kid who, I suspect, will absolutely be the best player he is capable of being, understand the defensive scheme perfectly, and come to play every down. A welcome addition!

04/03/2018 - 1:54pm Double hearsay, actually


04/03/2018 - 1:52pm Ogbah 10th?

All you need to know about the draft. There is no way he slides past 6, and is probably the first non-QB off the board. I love Mo, but no way does he go fourth.

04/02/2018 - 1:42pm Overconfidence?

Hoping the lambasting of Kansas and all the experts picking Villanova makes them overconfident heading into the game. Hit our first few threes, run them off the three point line, and hope they start to tighten up.

04/02/2018 - 9:21am Exactly!

We may lose, but that was Villanova’s A&M game. They couldn’t miss. They likely won’t shoot like that tonight. And if they do, no one can beat them.

03/25/2018 - 9:18pm Preferred Frozen Four Winner

1.Michigan. Duh. 2. Minnesota Duluth. 3. No one.

03/24/2018 - 11:57pm Yes, but

The play was right in front of the FSU bench. He could easily have yelled “foul, foul!”

03/24/2018 - 11:51pm The FSU press

Announcers kept talking about their press. It didn’t seem to pose much of a problem, and most of the credit goes to Z (and also MAAR) who brought the ball up most of the time.

03/24/2018 - 11:46pm Playing OSU

Offers the potential of an incredibly sweet moment if we were to beat them. And we have a decent shot. Last game, in Columbus, we got it to overtime. We have improved to where we can play with them. How crushing would it be for them to lose to Michigan in the Frozen Four after beating us five times?

03/16/2018 - 9:10pm If you want to mimic a team

How about we mimic the 1989 team, which won it all in blue?

03/13/2018 - 2:34pm I think I read this story already

Last time we hired a new S&C coach. Oh, and the time before that when we hired a new S&C coach.
