How good to see that in difficult times like this, our community unites with one voice. Blech.
From a Michigan perspective, you are correct that it's technically 2-11. You're also right that 2-10-1 makes a better parallel. Could you go along with Michigan fans believing it's 2 wins, 10 losses and an asterisk?
Thanks for the insightful reply. Something I left out because I don't want to get into it much: there are some party politics at play with Brandon in the board. Brandon is one party, and a couple of the critical board members are of the other. How much of it is political, and how much of it is dissatisfaction with Brandon? I don't know, but I bet it's more of the latter.
Something MGoBlog is big on that I to a lesser degree concur with is not caring about profit. The Big Ten schools have more athletic revenue than they know what to do with, and because they don't increase compensation for athletes they have nowhere else to put it than in buildings. There are prestige elements to having non-revenue sports that make sense for Michigan, whether the football team earns $80 million or $85 million.
Not in the works, but you can have the next best thing! The Land-Grant Brewing Company had a special Eleven Warriors flavor at last year's Gold Pants Social. Buy a ticket this year and who knows? Maybe they'll have it in stock!
This has not been a message of blatant shilling.
No, he has not. That bit of info is tucked into the next-to-last paragraph.
Not sure what was going on there, but it's fixed now.
Nah, you're good.
It's a thing birds do when they re-tweet another bird.
All right, this has gone on long enough.
Generally, the site policy is to let downvotes take care of disruptive conversation, but at some point when people keep going they need a reminder: DO NOT DISCUSS POLITICS OR RELIGION. It's literally the first rule of the commenting policy.
Are you sure you don't mean unsurprisingly? If Kerry Coombs ever worked at a lighthouse, he could use his own voice as a foghorn.
That's a solid critique of the play. I wouldn't necessarily say Shazier filled the hole; the pulling guard sealed him well enough that Boyd could have cut to the left behind Shazier.The first problem on the touchdown was that Clemson's left tackle was able to scoop block Adolphus Washington and get to Camren Williams; the second problem was that Shazier couldn't dodge the pulling guard; and the third problem was that C.J. Barnett took a bad angle on Boyd. It took all three events to create the touchdown, and it's certainly not all on Shazier. In order of culpability, I'd say it goes Marcus, Williams, Barnett, Shazier, Perry, Washington.
I also want to make clear, since I didn't do a great job articulating it in the article, that I think Ryan Shazier was a world-slayer last season. I don't know if any of this year's linebackers can match Shazier's athleticism, which makes avoiding blocks and being in the right position even more important.
You're absolutely right. Footnoted added to address Mr. Gentry.
