I'm pretty sure he was injured during the Indiana game.  Wasn't that the game he left and his parents were summoned?

Training wheels are an impediment to learning how to ride a bicycle.  It is akin to learning how to ride a unicycle by first mastering the tricycle.

What part of Mattison was just a position coach for Harbaugh do people not understand?  If he had called Harbaugh and said, "Say, I'm looking for a defensive coordinator and just to let you know, I'm thinking about hiring Don Brown."  Now that is something you could be and should be upset about.  But when employer B calls employer A about hiring a guy and giving him a promotion as well, usually employer A is good with it because, let's be honest here, if employer A valued employee X the way employer B seems to, then A would have already given X the raise and promotion.

Oh I don't know, I'd force myself to settle for the 24 year old bank robber version we saw in the movie "Taxi."

10 receptions on 12 targets.  Mic drop.

A double triple crown winner.

Close, but wrong.  The correct answer is 19K,  Armor Crewman.  Brad Pitt agrees.

Sometimes so good that they are persuaded to stop using them.  The Budweiser frog commercials for instance.  In any case I think the best ads, which are usually the most humorous, have faded with the culture having become so intolerant of humor.

If a true freshman QB can lead his team to win the national championship I'm sure a true freshman RB can have a significant impact on his team as well.

My Alma mater really came through this year.  First time ever DHS made the state playoffs and now a PWO to Michigan is the icing on the cake. Dexter High School, a football powerhouse.  Who knew?

41 years ago this week much of the Great Lakes region was shutdown because of historic blizzard.  We missed plenty of school days because of snow and ice storms, I don't ever recall not enjoying the pleasures of education because it was cold outside.  I really thought snowflakes would enjoy colder weather.

01/28/2019 - 8:49pm Nobody else tested positive…

Nobody else tested positive because nobody else was tested.  Or is it your assertion that 100% of PED abusers on the team were found by testing only 20% of the players?

Brian Bosworth ring any bells?  He was the posterboy of 1980s anabolic steroid abuse.

When they measured Jabrill Peppers evidently he was wearing four inch heels.

I thought Jay Riemersma might have made it, (and yes, he did manage to get on the field as a QB for Michigan), but he was too late for the Buffalo SB years and retired from the Steelers the year before their 2005 SB season.

And there's no OT if Brady doesn't throw a pick in the EZ.

Saints got the ball first in OT.  Rams played defense and won.

Should be a Purdue Michigan rematch.  NFL should do a serious investigation of the officiating crew of the NFC Championship game.

Evidently the owners are good with it.

What's with all this running by the Pats?

Thus far, mission accomplished.

That no call cost the Saints the ball game.  The SB will have no credibility.

One can only guess what the officiating crew might have been paid to throw that game.

01/16/2019 - 9:07am cornstarch does.

cornstarch does well in cool water.

01/16/2019 - 9:07am What is this thing, gravy…

What is this thing, gravy from a jar?

Pasty gravy means you aren't cooking the flour and fat long enough and hot enough.  Lumpy gravy probably means you added your flour to the water and juices before thoroughly combining it with the fat. Patience will be rewarded, and you might try using a sieve.  Lastly, and what I do often, is use cornstarch.  You don't have to mix it with fat (use cool water), you don't get the pasty taste, and because it is easier to work with you don't usually get lumps.  Cornstarch is excellent when you want a glossy thinner type of sauce or gravy.

I'm not an excellent cook, I'm just a guy.

When do you suppose the chorus of, "Wait until next year" becomes this year?

01/14/2019 - 7:00am Guilt by association.  You'd…

Guilt by association.  You'd think that an intelligent and enlightened community of scholars would be above that, but you'd be wrong.

Brady and Pats are doing well and I'm wearing my Michigan gear.  Would that it had worked a few weeks ago.

I dunno, Chick, what do you suppose the problem is?

01/12/2019 - 9:57pm Jourdan Lewis, told by…

Jourdan Lewis, told by Dallas they didn't need corners under 6 foot tall this year, set out to make his presence known regardless.  He's now their featured return man, runs the occasional offensive play... and, oh yes, he finds himself playing CB every now and again.

Cowboys looking to be one and done, again.

I think  Rudock did wonders for Rudock.

01/11/2019 - 10:18am Mattison was demoted and…

Mattison was demoted and took a pay cut when Harbaugh showed up.  The next year when Michigan needed a DC, Mattison was again given the cold shoulder.  Harbaugh and Michigan made their business decisions with regard to Mattison, Mattison made his business decision with regard to Mattison.

01/11/2019 - 10:05am Mattison doesn't need that…

Mattison doesn't need that money?  Has Brian taken a vow of poverty we don't know about?  

01/09/2019 - 4:31pm They are already encouraged…

They are already encouraged to lower the shoulder, and with it their helmet, to gain extra yards.  So yeah, no doubt that ball carriers in general are fully aware that their attempt to gain extra yards by lowering their head may well result in a defensive player being ejected.  

01/09/2019 - 4:23pm Better would be to take a…

Better would be to take a cue from hockey, make the penalty a timed penalty.  Currently a player could be charged with targeting on the opening kickoff and thus would miss 60 minutes of playing time.  Then make that the penalty 60 game minutes, to be carried over from one half to another, from one game to another.

01/09/2019 - 4:21pm Defensive players victimized…

Defensive players victimized by targeting still need not apply.  Almost as bad is that an offensive player can initiate contact with the head and the defensive player can be, and will be, charged with targeting.

01/09/2019 - 11:57am If we're going by stars,…

If we're going by stars, then I think Michigan over the previous three or four recruiting years (2019 excluded) has had a significant advantage over Clemson.  Now it could be that Swinney and his staff better identify needs and so can better target future prospects not to mention are better at seeing past the stars to the actual player.  But, and this is the big one, maybe Swinney and Saben, and Meyer for that matter, are just better at creating an environment for success, both at the individual and collective levels.

Need a defensive analyst that can teach DB the fine art of zone defense.

I think that says more about our "elite" defense than it does about the OSU offense.

Maybe an offer contingent on Brown leaving?  When Brown didn't leave, Mattison did.

01/07/2019 - 9:24pm Don't care anymore.

Don't care anymore.

And then throws a pick for a 40 yard return.

The difference is stark.  On 4th and 4" on their own 35, Alabama runs up the middle for three yards.
