Intelligent, conscientious, funny, a leader, and a Michigan fan.  RIP John Dingell.

Badger fans sure do hate instant replay.

Thanks for these details.  And for your time as a teacher.

Goodness, there is a local (near me) dealer advertisement inserted in your post, featuring a Honda CRV.

The coaches gave him a chance to develop and showcase himself on the field.  He was also given the opportunity to be a captain.  Ultimately he did not return the favor.

It’s dated by several years, but I remember reading a Sports Illustrated story about how the University of Oregon managed a ‘return to normal living’ program for its ex football players.  The school’s rationale was that if they forced the players to bulk up to achieve an end, they should also offer a step down plan when the players’ careers were over.  The story covered what you might expect in terms of portion control to glide path to a reasonable size, and introduced alternative life-long exercise options.  Two graduates were pictured, both former offensive linemen who were brothers.  They were holding their old playing days blue jeans out at the waist, like they were wearing barrels.

I really think having a very good defense made Harbaugh overconfident in an otherwise plodding offense.  Until the defense got gashed.  Twice.

One difference is that their NFL bound players are actually playing tonight.

Are you my dad by chance?  Pro tip: don’t answer those calls.

12/24/2018 - 9:44pm Agreed.

Agreed.

12/21/2018 - 9:24pm C’mon, don’t drink and drive!

Holy cow, don’t drink and drive!

Interesting.  Your comments suggest that you believe you possess the moral high ground. 

12/07/2018 - 2:37pm Reputation?  Oh, they have…

Reputation?  Oh, they have one already.

He was, but was always very succinct.

1AD, 101st, 25ID(L), 101st, ISAF.  Use of POG tells me you were a Marine.  If so, thanks for your service, but you may want to chill out a bit on this blog.  It’s here for sports.

And Go Blue!

Thanks for the assumptive declaration.  Do you by chance publish a newsletter?  I spent 30 years in the Army, and really look forward to reading all about your experience under fire.

Bando - what is the origin of band uniforms, and should they still be worn?

Those close in punts are so predictable.  Every time I think he won't do it - he does it.  Amazing.

I don't think they even invented hype until 1980.

With most of them being of the worried variety.

I like Harbaugh's terse style here.  On a mission.

11/19/2018 - 4:09pm Good input on apparent…

Good input on apparent player quality (even if that talent assessment occurred before college entry).  The equation has to add coaches + scheme, though.  It will be a good contest. 

11/19/2018 - 4:05pm Well, you know, this is from…

Well, you know, this is from an actual analyst at SBNATION, so we have to pay attention to it.

Or not.

11/19/2018 - 7:25am Many thanks for this and all…

Many thanks for this and all of your previous contributions, and best wishes on a swift and full recovery.  “I'm confident they'll (Indiana) upset Michigan at some point in the not-too-distant future.” - that must be the meds talking.

C'mon pope, don't have a we-ness complex!

To your question, the world would be a better place if everyone was a Michigan fan.

Choose your team wisely!

LSA, the referees are so decisive to game outcomes that it might be worth a separate snowflake for them.  Regrettably.

I really want to believe that the red zone dagger repertoire is being held back for the OSU game.

11/17/2018 - 8:19pm I don't know who you are,…

I don't know who you are, random internet person, but I sure want to believe you.

11/17/2018 - 8:17pm My eternal pet peeve - all…

My eternal pet peeve - all of you who are not the no-kidding coaches or players appropriating "we," as in "we looked terrible" or "we better get this fixed or we will suck in Columbus."

Up your game.

And, as always, Go Blue.

Yep.  Lot of sour people out there.

Its what they do.

Reggie baby, if this here blog was a paragon of style I wouldn’t see an advertisement plugged into the middle of your text.  Roll with it, and Go Blue!

I swear he’s mocking that weird Boilermaker mascot.

I thought the Hoosiers were visiting.

I wasn't at the game, much less guaranteed to be staring at a scoreboard even if I was.  What is your point?

11/13/2018 - 1:48pm I was at the game, on a date…

I was at the game, on a date with my wife-to-be.  When the ball got lateraled out of bounds by the RB, the whole stadium went quiet - none of us had seen that before.  Good times. 

11/12/2018 - 5:00pm Wow, you are too upset to…

Wow, you are too upset to type!

You are fixated on the wrong commercials.  Go buy a pickup.

I just want to watch football and the TV wants me to buy tacos and pickup trucks.  Sad.
