11/17/2018 - 11:22pm Hello!  It's been a while.

Hello!  It's been a while.

Maurice Hurst signed a four year contract with the Oakland Raiders worth $2,779,044 on May 16, 2018. Hurst received a $319,044 signing bonus. 

Could have been MUCH bigger.

YES!  I always want to see my local favorites play in Detroit and then realize that no player actually wants to be drafted by Detroit.

11/15/2018 - 5:12pm Seriously though, who plays…

Seriously though, who plays a tough zone any more? The top players want to play at "man" schools. It's the second tier schools that employ zone for a living.

Yes! Yes! A thousand times, Yes!

The title said "Simpsons" with an s.  I figured it was both Zavier and Xavier.

Goggles, Brady Hoke had great contributions to Michigan Football.  He was a legendary assistant coach and his loyalty is unquestionable.  That said, he was a mediocre head football coach at best.  Brandstatter is in a similar boat...  great color man but poor play-by-play.  You don't keep people in a position just because he is a good guy.

That…

It was cold as Hell...

That said, this was my third Rutgers trip and I highly recommend it.  The first year we stayed at the Heldrich in New Brunswick, but the past two times we have stayed in Manhatten and taken the train to and from the game.  The stadium itself is nothing special - a bunch of empty seats filled primarily with Michigan fans.  There are a lot of NYC-area Wolverines. It is similar to how we take over Northwestern's field.

The tickets are very reasonably priced and the concession prices are ridiculously low ($3 for a large hot chocolate).  We went to NYC on Thursday and saw as many sights as we could fit in, including finally getting to see Hamilton.  A highlight each year is the train ride back to Manhatten with the cars jammed full of Michigan fans.  At Penn Station there is a sea of maize and blue chanting, "It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine."

Go for it.  I still don't think Rutgers belongs in the B1G, but I sure don't mind the experience of going there!

It's so tempting to downvote you to get you under, but welcome to the voting world!

11/06/2018 - 4:32am When Brandstatter did the…

When Brandstatter did the color for the Lions he was actually good.  He understands the game and provides insight as to what is going on.  As a PBP caller, he is terrible.  You would think every play is going for a touchdown because he YELLS the play,  This past weekend, I listened to Blaha call the MSU-MD game and he may actually be worse because he rarely calls a play until after it is over.  For example: Lewerke to Jabroni - IT'S CAUGHT.  Ten and 15 to go in the third... and that's it. No down and distance, no yard line, and then dead silence until the next play where he tells you they lost two yards and it's second and twelve.  I flipped around and caught part of the OSU game and their announcer is the anti-Brandstatter.  He is very low key and treats each play the same.  A long pass gets no more emphasis than a dive up the middle for two yards.  BUT, the guy gave you formations, personnel, the score, the down and distance, and facts about the players.

Someone mentioned Wayne Laribee.  That guy was a pro.  There has to be someone comparable to him that Michigan could hire.

I lived in the South U apartment building on the west end for my freshman year (74).  Since I was in the band, I never got to see the Mudbowl game and only saw the flooded field prior to the game.  I remember thinking that it would take a lot of beer to get me into that sludge!  Thanks for the memories.

Yes he can... and he's getting healthier.

I'm not sure about AF or Purdue, but the others sell beer at their stadiums. That could be what they are referring to.

There are few things greater than a trainload of Michigan fans going into Manhattan changing, "It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine". My Buckeye wife was totally impressed.

I won't agree until Putingrad chimes in.  What say you, comrade?

More like, "I know you are, but what am I?"

As bad as OSU is looking, how could Sparty ever beat that team?

Any way to listen from Berlin, Germany?  I wanted to start a thread for this but thought it may be too much.

Can someone please translate the unreadable screenshots for those of us unable to read them?

Well, Grey Poupon is pretty tasty.

Bethune Cookman is 4-3, so it may not be a cakewalk for Nebraska.

They want blood dripping from every ear by game's end.

Nah, we're just in a happy and generous mood after Saturday night.

You honestly see Michigan winning out and being left out of the playoff?  Really!?!?  The Bama/Georgia/LSU triangle should take care of itself.

10/14/2018 - 1:33pm The difference with the…

The difference with the Northwestern game though is that we got away twice with illegal formations (those plays had the three of four in the backfield like tonight, but had Higdon in the backfield with Patterson putting five in the backfield).  Tonight, there was nobody behind Shea.

10/12/2018 - 6:59pm Not any more.  Josh Adams…

Not any more.  Josh Adams ran 98 yards for a TD as a freshman in 2015.

They almost had no choice but to wait.  Maryland went through a Chorus-Line-like routine on damn near every snap with multiple guys in motion. They tried to disguise their formations but ended up never really pulling any defenders out of the box. I think they overthought themselves in this regard.

I only saw frustration on the holding call against Runyan and the WTF call against Higdon.

Well said, BiT.  I fall solidly into the "don't like" side of Millen fanhood, but don't wish health problems on anyone.

Serious question: Can you explain what you mean by fragile?

10/01/2018 - 5:35pm My thoughts exactly.  I'm…

My thoughts exactly.  I'm sure that WD only changes his lucky maize underwear after a loss.  Maybe his girlfriend needs to tell him they used to be white.

10/01/2018 - 5:33pm Well I hope they both waved…

Well I hope they both waved to the kids, even though PSU fans waving at kids is STILL kind of creepy.

09/30/2018 - 12:49pm Exactly.  Some people think…

Exactly.  Some people think every opponent's drive should be 3 and out with a sack or two thrown in for good measure.  Defense is about adjusting to what they throw at you.  Brown is as good as they come in that respect.  Northwestern had two weeks to scheme against us.  EVERY defense has weak points.  They found ours and exploited it.  When we shored up against their slants, they had no other options.

Apparently with invisible hands.

The ref wasn't able to run along the sideline because the players were in the way.

Yeah, I'm sure it was the white uniforms.

I'll be surprised if Eubanks plays next week. His leg injury looked pretty bad to me.
