You have it backwards. The blue end zone will help us beat OSU. Urban has an aversion to blue, which he has passed on to the whole team.  They will avoid our end zone like Pavlov's dogs.

The whole field should be bright maize colored turf!

Is there some sort of soccer tournament going on? Is the U.S. expected to win?

Wow. Great 247 review of McNamara. Can't wait to see him and Milton slug it out for the starter's time next year.

Bad, if Calvin Klein or Giorgio Armani are running it.

If we send the team on a spring trip to Mars we won't lose a game for 14 years.

For those of you with any interest in history, May 4 is the anniversary of the Kent State massacre, May 4, 1970. A dark day in history.

05/03/2018 - 7:10am Despite his subdued demeanor,

Despite his subdued demeanor, I always learn something new about the game listening to Gibby. His insights go into technical areas that I had never considered. Rod Allen, on the other hand, is a blowhard homer who never gets into the intricacies of the game, and when Miggy was tearing it up a few years back always sounded like he couldn't wait to give him a blowjob. Allen represents the worst aspects of color analysis.

05/02/2018 - 7:46am Sunday night jazz at the Del

Sunday night jazz at the Del was the best free music in Ann Arbor; and their library of recorded music on the wall (mostly cassettes) was the largest I've encountered. 

But, my favorite bar was Mr. Flood's Party (where the West End Grill now sits).  It was the epicenter for hippie/townie culture in the 70s and 80s, and my band was the house band every Friday Happy Hour.  Tiffany lamps; peanut shells covering the floor; huge picnic tables where you could meet new people every night.  Hated to see it close in the 90s.

45 years for me. I started here the same year as Bo, 1969.

Just putting the GOAT in the same sentence with those two Sparty ass wipes is worth a down vote.

Canberra is bad, but canbeer is worse. Give me a bottle every time.

We can't survive by constantly trying to turn lemons into lemonade, when 'Bama and OSU are drinking Cristal.

The execution of Big Pussy is a scene I will never forget.  "Please, not in the face."

"Frankly, the only way they would be able to get a coach of Pitino's caliber is if they have flaws."

         By "a coach of Pitino's caliber" you mean a coach who procures prostitutes for his players and commits adultery in places of public acommodation?  Shouldn't be too hard to find.

04/22/2018 - 8:59am Despite the mounting losses,

Despite the mounting losses, this team is clearly headed in the right direction -- with a young and qualified coaching staff, with connections in the recruiting hot beds of the country. Give it a couple more years and we will be NC contenders.

04/22/2018 - 8:51am All Hail a true Michigan man.

All Hail a true Michigan man. He may have been small in stature, but his spirit was large. He took what nature provided him and made a great life for himself. Go Verne! Go Blue!

BTW, I was counting on him to play left tackle.

04/20/2018 - 7:42am As a litigation attorney, I

As a litigation attorney, I can tell you that any time you are given an opportunity (or a request) to file a reply brief to the latest submission by the other side, you file a substantive reply if the case is at all in doubt.  The only times you would choose not to file the reply would be if you are so sure of victory that you can confidently say "Nothing more needs to be said," or if you have no reasonable arguments to advance in response and decide to give up the ghost.  In this case, I truly doubt that Ole Miss believes that its victory is assured, and their tepid reply seems clearly like the latter case.

That being said, I NEVER trust the NCAA to do the expected -- or right -- thing.  I am keeping my fingers crossed.

04/20/2018 - 7:39am Uh, Brady NEVER plays in New

Uh, Brady NEVER plays in New York, unless he's playing the Bills; but you're right, he seems to beat them pretty regularly.

04/17/2018 - 12:48pm I do not understand this

I do not understand this commitment, unless we are conceding that we cannot put together anything close to an elite OL class. To take this kid so early in the process makes no sense, unless he has been warned that it has spot may not be available.

As long as he doesn't get drafted by the Lions or the Browns he should do fine.

Agree 15. It would have been 16, but the Spring Game was canceled.

Stanford ran away with the W Swimming title this year, mainly because Katie Ledeckie won, like, every event.

04/13/2018 - 7:37am We will be getting no points

We will be getting no points in M or W LAX, and our points in WGYM will be minimal, due to the team's unfathomably poor performance at the regionals. Other than that, we should get decent points in the other sports mentioned.

Nice list. But how will we ever catch MSU and its vaunted all-around Athletics program?

I just bought two tickets to the spring game for 100 bucks each. Where do I go for my refund?

04/10/2018 - 10:46am 1962?  Really?  When was it

1962?  Really?  When was it that Ole Miss finally banned Confederate Flags in the football stadium?  Oh, you didn't bother to ask yourself that question.  And I'll bet you didn't think about how subtly racist was that photo of Treadwell getting groped by those lovely white sorority girls (i.e., implying that this is every black recruit's dream come true).

04/10/2018 - 10:33am The Final Four, the Frozen

The Final Four, the Frozen For, and the Freakin' Fantastic Football Four would make for a not too bad year. Yesterday's loss really sucked, the way it happened, but the future is incredibly bright. Who's got it better than us? . . . WE DO!

Get in your car and drive to Ann Arbor. Problem solved.  And a pleasant time is guaranteed for all.

04/09/2018 - 11:09am As an attorney and a

As an attorney and a functionary at relatively high levels at the State Bar of Michigan, I have met Justice Young several times, listened to him speak on many occasions, and read many of the opinions he authored.  And in all honesty, I can say that Justice Young was always, quite simply, a total pig, in the socio/political sense of the word.  He tries to come across as an above-the-fray, bowtie-wearing, academic who would approach matters objectively.  That, however, is a total front. 

Robert Young was always a political tool of the insurance companies and the most conservative wing of the Republican Party.  His disdain for the rights of injured individuals (whether physically, psychologically, or emotionally) has been well-documented.  Thus, it is totally unsurprising that Engler and his cronies would turn to someone like Young to protect their interests, while at the same time chirping about what an appropriate choice he is to vindicate the rights of the victims.  Utter horseshit.  And, yes, this was politics on this Blog, because it is total politics on the part of MSU.

When I was an undergrad here (69-73) I was addicted to Pong. Then Asteroids came out. Too complicated for me.

With that hairdo he would become the Fourth Musketeer, with Jordan, Isaiah, and Ibi. That would totally fuck up the announcers when all four are on the floor together.

His medical records would have read: "Post-examination follow-up -- jacked off in my office."

Does anyone really think that didn't happen from time to time?
