I don't know how to break it to you, but Keith Jackson died.
|02/19/2019 - 1:06pm||I Michigan can make it…||
I Michigan can make it through THAT schedule as a one-loss team, we deserve to be in the playoffs.
|02/18/2019 - 11:22am||The keys for this team: hit…||
The keys for this team: hit yo threes and keep Teske AND Z on the court (no injuries or foul trouble). The defense is about as good as any of us will ever see at Michigan, and the offense looks like it is functioning as intended. Shots just ain't falling. Poole needs to break his bad luck streak and Matthews or Iggy cannot have an off night in either tournament.
But the defense and offensive game plan is all there and (outside of Wisconsin's foulpalooza or Penn State) it seems to be executed at a high level. If we could just make our threes, we'd be a one seed.
|02/08/2019 - 12:53pm||If that happened today,…||
If that happened today, there would be 35,000 GIfs, 200 You Tube videos, and countless memes of that happening.
|02/08/2019 - 9:07am||No worries man. I love…||
No worries man. I love basketball, but I need an injection of a football-like thing into my veins.
|02/08/2019 - 9:06am||I've heard this before, bit…||
I've heard this before, bit it blows my freaking mind.
Agree or disagree with him, Dingell was part of a group of Representative and Senators (along with Howard Baker and others) that were great representatives of their Constituents, and whom had more than a full measure of class.
|02/08/2019 - 8:43am||They must be pretty damn…||
They must be pretty damn sure that Jordan Travis is coming, because ONE Sophmore is a terrible plan at QB. They may have another Spring transfer locked in as well; Brandon Peters is as good of a guess as anyone else.
Wouldn;t surpise me if Stanford Samuels or Travis Jay was trained up to be the third QB. They were both good HS QBs, and if they plan on running some sort of option running offense with Cam Akers, they wouldn't be terrible if they get that far down on the depth chart.
If that's true, then Blackman-Peters-Emergency QB for this year and Blackman-Peters-Travis for next year is not the worst QB situation I've ever heard of.
|02/08/2019 - 8:35am||Here you go!|
|01/30/2019 - 8:40am||But you haven't heard MY…||
But you haven't heard MY plan! I want to fire the coach and replace him with someone better. It solves all of our problems!
|01/25/2019 - 11:28am||Someone needs to photoshop…||
Someone needs to photoshop him into this:
|01/25/2019 - 9:11am||We should start calling the…||
We should start calling the Trohl Center the Whorehouse, since Wisconsin seem to spend most of their time on their backs while we get screwed.
|01/24/2019 - 8:26am||This is still the most…||
This is still the most impressive catch I've ever seen in a football game:
People talk about Beckhams catch, but this one had so much significance to us Colts fans (not to mention the incredible body control). This was one of the few catches he ever celebrated, and I can't blame him.
|01/18/2019 - 3:50pm||As a Colts fan, I really…||
As a Colts fan, I really want Devin Bush to join Darius Leonard at LB. That would be an insane combo.
|01/18/2019 - 1:43pm||Unless the BC job opens up,…||
Unless the BC job opens up, it doesn't make sense for him to leave anyway. He's here to learn at the feet of Don Brown and Harbaugh, and I'd imagine he'd want to be here for at least two years.
|01/18/2019 - 1:33pm||I laugh at the idea of Ty…||
I laugh at the idea of Ty Damn Law-- a man who terrorized me as a Colts fan-- not being "Michigan" good. The coaches telling him he's *maybe* a third rounder kinda makes me mad-- dude was good.
|01/17/2019 - 4:51pm||My plan to add Brandon…||
My plan to add Brandon Graham and Chase Winovich to the Colts is coming together.....
|01/17/2019 - 1:24pm||I think the implication is…||
I think the implication is that Mattison will be retired by then.
|01/10/2019 - 12:05pm||Crap- you are right. I…||
Crap- you are right. I actually think Rosen is a good QB, but I didn't consider some place like New England. That would be the *perfect* place for him.
I still don't think it makes sense to turn the #10 pick into the #36 pick or whatever unless you think he's not any good.
|01/10/2019 - 12:02pm||Murray is 21 years old. He's…||
Murray is 21 years old. He's probably 3-4 years away from the majors-- if he makes it at all. If they take him in the top-half of the draft, he'll get at LEAST a 12 million dollar signing bonus-- three times what he's having to give back to the A's. He won't hit free agency in the MLB until he's 27-28-- meaning he would have ONE shot at a legit contract. In the NFL, if he's any good, he'll be in the middle of his second contract by then.
Unless he's a top-50 MLB player, chances are the NFL will pay him a decent bump above what he'll get as an NFL QB. And considering that he'll triple his money upfront makes this gamble make a ton of sense for him.
|01/10/2019 - 11:54am||I am not so sure that he has…||
I am not so sure that he has much of a future in baseball--- I was suprised he was picked so high.
|01/10/2019 - 11:52am||What could they get for…||
What could they get for Rosen? He's kind of a Douche and didn't show much last year. This feels like a Lions move all the way.
|01/04/2019 - 8:11am||What is this? People being…||
What is this? People being civil on the internet? If this keeps going, I am going to have to post my crazy-ass Federal Reserve conspiracy theories and call someone Hitler.
|12/26/2018 - 9:13am||Switzerland is small and…||
Switzerland is small and neutral! We are more like Germany: ambitious and misunderstood!

I've never seen you before, neither.
|11/21/2018 - 4:35pm||I love me some 538 normally,…||
I love me some 538 normally, but I am not a big fan of the "ELO" ratings. This certainly the kind of ad hoc, zero-expertise take that Nate Silver hates, but I find it to be more confusing and generally less accurate than DVOA and other fancy stats. I have no idea if that's true, but it seems that way. I do know that every year, the I have to figure out what the heck ELO is trying to do, sorta understand it, then immediately forget it.
|11/16/2018 - 2:02pm||a "slow-motion blowout" is…||
a "slow-motion blowout" is also what happened to me this time when I ate half a giant wheel of days-old cheese in grad school.
|11/16/2018 - 12:50pm||I imagine the conversation…||
I imagine the conversation went like this:
Harbaugh: We are excited for you to visit! Anything we can do to make your trip special?
Keegan: Yes. I want to get a feel for the day-to-day experience of being a player. I want to come and see the o-line coaching in the middle of the week. I want to see how the offensive line is coached and taught and prepared for a game.
Harbaugh: So... you want to come and see the best offensive line coach in the country to see if he is good at coaching?
Harbaugh: (stifling gleeful laughter) I suppose we can make that work, yeah.
|11/16/2018 - 8:26am||This is just a defense…||
This is just a defense mechanism. They think OSU is going to lose, so they are hoping to have it over quickly instead of losing a close one that takes it to the end. Also, if Michigan wins by more that 20, they can be mad at Michigan for running up the score.
|11/14/2018 - 8:11am||Getting to #12 on a bunch of…||
Getting to #12 on a bunch of slip screens, slants, and other short passing stuff is actually REALLY damn impressive.
|11/14/2018 - 8:06am||That defensive line scares…||
That defensive line scares the bejeesus out of me.
|11/08/2018 - 3:33pm||This is a dumb opinion. …||
This is a dumb opinion. This is like saying "Carrots shouldn't be in Chicken Noodle Soup. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT WOULD BE CALLED."
Man, that show is just the worst.
|11/08/2018 - 2:21pm||Gotta be honest: Creeper guy…||
Gotta be honest: Creeper guy is doing a fine job of standing in for me in these pictures.
|11/08/2018 - 12:55pm||I always post my dream…||
I always post my dream scenario-- so here it is, again!
Setup: 11 Conferences of 10 teams each. No more independents. Each stadium required to hold 25K.
Each team plays 8 conference games and two non-conference games. FCS games no longer count.
11 Conference Champions and 5 at-large bids play a 16-team playoff.
Teams 17-32 play a second tournament. Each team plays four here too. Difference is: each team gets two home games-- up to and including the championship game. Top seed gets to decide where the games are played.
Teams 33-100 are randomly assigned two additional games one home, one away. This way, we'd get to see weird games like "LSU at BGSU" that would never otherwise happen.

You have never been involved with software or web development I guess.

I am so sorry. How did you survive Voldemort?

I actually think it makes a lot of sense that Brian et al. would cover the Regents race, I just wish it was, like, Rutger weekend or the bye week. Damn you, Big Ten schedulers!
I have a deep craving for some fresh, hot Penn State whoopin' coverage.
|11/02/2018 - 4:17pm||Someday, I want to see the…||
Someday, I want to see the Full HARBAUGHHH lineup: 5 O-Linemen, 2 FB, 3 TE, and Gentry in at QB.
|11/01/2018 - 8:09am||As a Nuggets fan, I really…||
As a Nuggets fan, I really wanted Joe Harris or Caris to become our 3 of the future. I think both are smart players that can shoot-- and Playing next to Jokic is basically a one-way ticket to open shots.

I like it! Would love to see a women's version too.
I still have no idea how MSU is ranked above us in basketball.

I scrolled straight to the metrics and laughed. Winovich was insane, but so was everything else. That was a crushin'.

During Harbaugh's podcast this week, he talked about getting the team rested and mentioned that Wednesday was going to be a full practice for the backups.

I keep telling you: Green Eggs and Ham and Cat in the Hat aren't novels. Still nice to see someone tackling adult illiteracy at your advanced age.

I watch the occasional SNL clip, and I still had no idea this guy was on SNL.

I have no idea how it would work, but it would be a total boss move If Warde could call them up and say, "If you are willing to become the Wolverines, we have some sweet branding rights y'all could borrow."
|10/24/2018 - 3:23pm||Yup. Nationally, 538 was…||
Yup. Nationally, 538 was dead on. If I remember correctly, they slightly overestimated voter turnout among minorities, mostly in a few key cities in Michigan, PA, and Wisconsin.
