And every other time DJ has written about Michigan.
There goes perpetually aggrieved DJ Byrnes again, pointing out facts about Michigan's football program that Michigan fans want to ignore.
I think that Harbaugh is actually preoccupied with a laser pointer that someone is pointing at the wall.
I loathe the term "Buckeye Nation." Absolutely hate it.
I have very little problem with the amount of money in college sports. There is demand for college football so they supply it. My cognitive dissonance comes from the safety concerns, mainly concussion-related. I sometimes feel guilty watching football because of it.
I'm confused by the sentiment that Jim Tressel was losing his edge toward the end of his tenure. In his last two seasons Ohio State went 23-3* and won the Rose and Sugar* Bowls. Urban Meyer's success at Ohio State has diminished that of Tressel's in the eyes of many fans, which is ironic because a large part of Meyer's success has been due to players Jim Tressel recruited.
Perpetually aggrieved Urban Meyer can't be content with recruiting Ohio and has to go after Michigan talent as well.
Yes I will be there. Sorry to hear you won't be there. If you're in Savanah next year I'll buy you a beer.
Calpoppy- will you be in Edmonton for Botany 2015 later in July?
Baylor is a good one. So is TCU.
My dad and I went to that game. I was 11. My dad was so angry we left just after Michigan State took the lead in the 4th quarter.
I have never seen him so mad before.
Queue Mgo outrage in 3...2...
Good for UD. Although in 2007 Xavier signed Archie's big brother to a huge contract extension and two years later the University of Arizona met little resistance in getting Sean to Tucson. Be forewarned, Flyers.
Xavier grad here as well. What year?
I have to respectfully disagree with Mr. Byrnes, as well. OSU fans should rightfully hate on UC; think of Xavier as more sophisticated than them. And I hate to play devil's advocate, but isn't getting excited about beating a Bob Huggins-less UC team at least better than excitement over annually beating the shit out of whatever Michigan has masquerading as a football team the past few years?
No, Xavier is still in Ohio my friends. Pull for the Muskies on Thursday. Lets go X!
I was actually just going to ask this. Any word on Lee, Tim?
Meyer knew that if OSU did their job, and didn't get in their own way too much, they would beat the shit out of Oregon.
Eh, hard for me to get fired up about this at all. Seems like these cases caused huge waves up until a few years ago. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
That picture had better be gracing the cover of Ohio State's media book come August.
Dear Anthony Lee,
PLEASE get healthy soon.

Good read. Laughed for a solid minute at this line:
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is being released in time for Valentine’s Day. That’s a bold move, since the film is not just unromantic but specifically anti-romantic; take your valentine along, by all means, but, be warned, it’ll be like watching “Rosemary’s Baby” at Christmas.
Going to see it with the wife tomorrow. She enjoyed the books but does not have high hope for the film. It's gonna be bad.

Tough situation all around. If Drayton knew he was going to take the gig with the Bears, you would hope he would have disclosed that to Weber et al. Let Urban talk to the family and, if Weber felt he was misled, let the young man re-open his recruitment.
Seems like this decision was razor close for Weber, and that's why I think this has become such a kerfuffle.
Fact: there is a positive relationship between how wrong a Michigan Man is and the extent to which he claims to be right.
I noticed a Hokie medal is conspicuously absent from the poster.
Urban and co. are going to beat the absolute shit out of Va Tech on Labor Day.
This is not our championship poster, if you can believe that. We have one that's even better coming soon.
