For those of us who thought that after 2007 Urban Meyer was the Anti-Christ and cringed when he was hired by, it's all good Urbz. I can forget about 2007, I'm fine with it. You prepared that 2014 Buckeye team as good as you prepared Florida in 2007. Just what I expected; all is forgotten.

Great quote from Jessie Palmer (talking about an Alabama player tackling #12) ..."when you tackle a 6'5", 250 pound quarterback, that isn't a tackle,  that is a business decision".

From Wikipedia on Barry Melrose (WTF?), see ESPN voices above:

Barry James Melrose (born July 15, 1956) is a Canadian-American broadcaster and former professional ice hockey player and head coach. Melrose played in the World Hockey Association (WHA) and National Hockey League. After retiring from playing, he became a head coach and is best known for being the coach of the Los Angeles Kings in their 1993 run to the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals.

I just hope everyone is. I have to give  the guy props for continuing to post here over the years and maintaining some semblance of sanity. He's a good shit (but there is no accounting for taste or academic affiliation).

Hey guys, as a public service announcement. For the record, I have been on this board for over 4 years, am an avid Ohio State fan and lifetime alumni. I'm jumping in here, not because I have any real info on Harbaugh or TTUN. But I think, and I think the 11W Staff would agree, before you take a giant steaming dump on M Man for his comments, keep in mind he has been one of the true reliable sources for this site of all things _ichigan. His comments are usually well-reasoned, informed, and lack the 10-year war hype that exists between the schools. He gives tOSU credit where credit is due and doesn't crow for _ichigan success (which has been lacking, I admit). For some of you newer folks, just because he uses the moniker "M Man" and has that damned helmet as his avatar, doesn't mean he has nothing intelligent to say. In fact, some of his comments about the Title IV issues are spot on. Lighten up.

I hope Cooper is that good. Because right now, Michigan isn't and it has taken away something from the Rivalry, the Game. I want Cooper to be good so that when we whip their sorry asses, we don't have to listen to some goober with an "A" hat make any excuses for why they lost.

I can assure you, as a pilot in the Air Force for 21 years, while you may be right in general, the hanger depicted, and given the choice between CMH (where there are only civilian hangers from the 30s and small hangers at Lane) and LCK, where there are EXACTLY the hangers depicted, it is a military hanger. 

Christ, I can't believe on a Football site, someone wants to argue about hanger configuration.
