12/25/2018 - 11:31pm I skipped through the thread…

I skipped through the thread so sorry if I missed this but - are you sure you have your tuition numbers right?

I haven't had a student pay full tuition at an Ivy League school in a long time - except for those kids for whom it isn't an issue at all. The Ivies are actually a fantastic deal these days if you can get in. So I guess what I'm saying is, is the extra $ a big difference to you? Because if it is, I highly doubt that you'd be paying that much if you got into Princeton.


11/24/2018 - 11:44am Excellent.


11/24/2018 - 10:24am Good news.

Good news.


11/24/2018 - 10:19am Same Michigan shirt.


Same Michigan shirt.

Used my Michigan toothbrush which wasn't working last year because I messed up and used it for Florida; it is actually only for true away games (yep you can blame me for last year).

All systems are go.

11/23/2018 - 11:12pm Both these OU and WVU teams…

Both these OU and WVU teams are more one-sided than a Mobius strip.

11/23/2018 - 11:08pm +1 Jimmy Buffett reference.

+1 Jimmy Buffett reference.

Also yes,  it is time to be champions. Hail!

11/23/2018 - 1:30pm Michigan 31 Ohio State 24.

Michigan 31 Ohio State 27.

EDIT: assuming teams at relatively full strength. 

11/22/2018 - 9:44am Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

11/20/2018 - 9:04pm Many players on the team are…

Many players on the team are probably out of touch with the greatness of Hall and Oates, but they would probably make Jim and Sarah smile. 

11/19/2018 - 11:52pm I don't think so.

They have…

I don't think so.

They have insight into our OL coach and part-time OC. We have insight into their personnel, head coach, and remaining coaches from 2016.

I'll take our side of that bargain every time.

11/19/2018 - 5:57pm Love it!

I was wondering…

Love it!

I was wondering about this. I think the upside of the guarantee outweighs the downside.

11/19/2018 - 3:29pm Welcome Jalen! You have made…

Welcome Jalen! You have made a great choice.

11/19/2018 - 3:24pm Yeah, I agree with the OP,…

Yeah, I agree with the OP, although I think that one factor is it's been so, so long since we had anything approaching equality heading into this game that equality feels like a massive advantage.

11/19/2018 - 12:38pm I think we're probably still…

I think we're probably still underrated, at least from the point of view of who will finish where in the NCAA tournament come spring.

11/19/2018 - 12:15pm That's what I was going to…

That's what I was going to post. Thank you.

IOW sure other fan bases may feel that Delany is working the refs against them - but we actually have a former chief of officials on record saying Delany wanted the refs to pay special attention to Michigan.

11/18/2018 - 10:04pm I slept with your mom. Did…

I slept with your mom. Did you know that?

11/18/2018 - 9:33pm Look, Jim Delaney is not God…

Look, Jim Delany is not God, ok?

11/18/2018 - 4:39pm And the guy from the…

And the guy from the Marietta Ga. journal ranking us 6th and Georgia 4th. 

Stay classy, Marietta.

11/18/2018 - 4:19pm Oh please. Nobody's perfect…

Oh please. Nobody's perfect. But it's true that Michigan is cleaner than most, and does things the right way more often than most. And you know it, and that's what pisses you off so much.

11/18/2018 - 11:23am They really have.

They really have.

11/18/2018 - 11:14am Hello!


11/18/2018 - 10:26am This guy gets it.

This guy gets it.

11/18/2018 - 10:17am Loved those books.

Loved those books.

11/17/2018 - 9:48pm Jordan Lyons is still…

Jordan Lyons is still playing out of his mind.

11/17/2018 - 8:19pm Seriously though, that Lyons…

Seriously though, that Lyons kid is playing out of his mind. Or maybe he's just that good. Will be very interesting player to watch this season.

11/17/2018 - 9:32am I wish I could share your…

I wish I could share your optimism about us getting in over a 1-loss Alabama. I personally might buy your argument, but I really don't think the committee would.

I'll be rooting for OSU to lose because in my opinion, we have to win out regardless, and even if we do win out, a 1-loss 'Bama is getting in ahead of us no matter what. That's ridiculous, but the committee is not reasonable. So might as well root for OSU to lose.


11/17/2018 - 12:14am Yep. Thanks for the post and…

Yep. Thanks for the post and info. It's appreciated.

11/15/2018 - 7:11pm Nor do I, I was just trying…

Nor do I, I was just trying to quote/paraphrase Harbaugh. Guess my humor didn't come across (or didn't exist in the first place).

11/15/2018 - 7:10pm I agree. I keep thinking…

I agree. I keep thinking that at this point, Meyer has realized the problem and is just buying time until he reveals his all-running-QB, all-Tate offense against us - an offense that they're spending more and more practice time on these past few weeks.

And if that offense catches us by surprise or does better than the offense with Haskins at the helm, then Haskins won't play much against us and will find himself on the bench come 2019.

11/15/2018 - 6:28pm I'm pretty much expecting…

I'm pretty much expecting OSU to come out and give Tate the second series against us, maybe even a set of downs on the first series. And if that goes well for OSU, then it's going to be more Tate than Haskins in our game. 

11/15/2018 - 6:25pm I don't want to compare…

I don't want to compare because when you compare someone is always diminished.

It's been a great year so far. Five more games to go.

11/15/2018 - 2:59pm Swaper no swaping!

Swaper no swaping!

11/15/2018 - 10:51am I'd pick us over most of…

I'd pick us over most of that Top Ten. 

11/14/2018 - 10:51pm Murder is pretty…

Murder is pretty nonconsensual. Are we supposed to stop saying "We killed them"? 

Language isn't always literal.

Get over it.

11/14/2018 - 9:59pm Really, really impressive. I…

Really, really impressive. I wish I had more time so I could write up a diary on what he did. But look at how we were playing their wings tonight. Contrast that to what is going on with Marquette vs. Romeo Langford right now. Look at the angles and positioning for our D on the wings, while the ball was still at the point, vs. the more traditional angles that Marquette is taking.

11/13/2018 - 4:17pm Nah, I'm glad McMurphy ran…

Nah, I'm glad McMurphy ran with the story. Gave me insight and entertainment.

11/12/2018 - 3:05pm 65" doesn't fit in my F150.

65" doesn't fit in my F150.


11/12/2018 - 3:04pm I also had to listen to some…

I also had to listen to some of the game on SiriusXM and wow, yeah. those Rutgers guys were amateurish. Especially the color guy. He kept complaining that Rutgers had to "open up the offense" as if Rutgers wasn't succeeding because of some sort of choice they were making. Stumbled over his words, rambled, left the hooks from his partners hanging, and generally sounded like your grumpy buddy on the couch.

11/12/2018 - 2:55pm Agree about DC.

To be…

Agree about DC.

To be precise, the Stan Lee revolution was that the character's powers themselves were the source of the character's pain, not just the source of their ability. 

11/12/2018 - 2:52pm RIP.

The most under-rated…


The most under-rated literary genius of the 20th century. People credit Alan Moore et al. for bringing comics out of the literary ghetto, but they were just getting credit for what Stan Lee had already done without anyone recognizing it. His shift from the Greek to the Christian heroic paradigm is almost unparalleled in influence. Buffy, Harry Potter, Twilight all direct descendants; Star Wars almost the only Greek superhero mythos post-Lee.

The biggest no-prize ever for you, Mr. Lee.


11/11/2018 - 9:41pm Thank you, Simone.

Thank you, Simone.

11/11/2018 - 9:27pm Good stuff. Thank you.

Good stuff. Thank you.

11/11/2018 - 9:19pm And racist.

Or racist.

11/11/2018 - 1:06pm Yes. I was wondering, how…

Yes. I was wondering, how does S&P+ deal with injuries like that? I feel like I should know this but I don't.

11/11/2018 - 8:29am No, Indiana gets to lose 42…

No, Indiana gets to lose 42-9 because unlike the rest of our divisional foes, they didn't kill a kid, molest underage girls systematically over decades, molest underage boys over decades, facilitate domestic violence for a decade, hit players and use homophobic slurs directed at them, institutionally aid and conceal their crimes, and inspire a fanbase to make excuses for their villainy.

God I hate our division. 

11/10/2018 - 10:48pm Might as well be game over…

Might as well be game over after that TD. Clemson looks good, but I'm still not sure they've played anyone.

11/10/2018 - 2:27am I would not put any money on…

I would not put any money on Clemson to cover. That's a big ask at BC this weekend. I think Clemson is good, but given their schedule there's a chance they might not be.

I do like Northwestern and those points at Iowa. Fitzgerald is better than Ferentz in normal seasons, ie seasons where Ferentz isn't having one of those Jedi mind-trick years that convinces Iowa to give him $1 trillion plus their half of the Mississippi over ten years.

11/09/2018 - 10:46am Got to agree with this. I…

Got to agree with this. I feel like he's a bit under-celebrated by the blog.

11/09/2018 - 10:03am Is it a posting Rutger if…

Is it a posting Rutger if you have more posts than points?

Asking for a friend.
