Halcyon days -- must have been the days they were taking Halcion tm

The offense has made big strides the past two weeks, albeit against weaker defenses.  I think it's a factor of the Oline settling in, together with JT's development and comfort with an expanding playbook.  There's no other way to explain the radical difference in play-calling since the VT debacle.  While improvement was to be expected, it's nice when things go as planned.  Yes, defenses will be getting tougher, but there's no reason to thing the offense will regress.  They seem to be hitting their stride.

Did every school that didn't get them "miss" too?  Point is, no one gets everybody.  You get the best you can for your scheme and program.  I've been quite happy with Troy/Terrell/Braxton/JT.

If Michigan is going to fire Hoke, fine.  Do it already.  But, just admit that the real reason is because the product on the field stinks.  And, stop with the hypocrisy that he has to go because, um, player safety, yeah, that's the ticket.  Please!

Thanks for clarifying RFR!  I left my opera glasses at home and couldn't tell, old bean.

Thanks Boss.  We'll be here all week.  Don't forget to tip your server.

I heard that the 50 yard line tea party for season ticket holders turned into a scone throwing fight.  Talk about embarrassing.

Comment 27 Sep 2014

This is a lame -- pun intended -- excuse to fire the best Michigan coach we've ever had.  Resist! 

Comment 27 Sep 2014

Yep.  10 guys showed up in a VW van with PA plates.

For all those in favor of all gray unis for the Buckeyes, please take no more than a glance at Syracuse v. ND.

Comment 27 Sep 2014

Situational awareness.  Who didn't know Kiel was going to air it out after getting those first downs?  The secondary, I guess.  More pressure on Kiel would help, too.

The offense is unstoppable -- except when it stops itself.  Fumble.  Drops.

Eliminate the mistakes. 

Oh, and Cinci is an easy team to despise.  Bunch of punks.

Comment 26 Sep 2014

I love the rivalry.  I believe a big part of it, aside from geography, is that so many of the players on both teams grew up and played Ohio HS football.  Makes me laugh to hear how Michigan is going to beat "Ohio football".  Without Ohio football, they couldn't field a team.

Allow me to paraphrase.  "I understand why you dislike us.  You're right, we are despicable.  But, your vitriol amuses us older fans." 

Thanks for the drive by.  We like you even less for it.  Stick to Mgoblowohio.

BTW, the younger generations of UM fans are right.

It is their entire attitudinal profile that compels them to post here in the first place.  No other fans would imagine that Buckeye fans give a crap what they think.

"snooty self-indulgence"?  (check)

"condescending idealism"?  (check)

"hoary symbolism of the Michigan Man"?  (check)

"self-indulgent angst"?  (check)

Yep, pretty much nailed it.

USA 2 1/2  Europe 1 1/2  after morning four ball matches

Rose/Stenson never threatened by Watson/Simpson, who didn't win a hole or make a birdie in the match

Fowler/Walker steal a halve after being down 3 to Kaymer/Bjorn

Rookies Spieth/Reed romp over Poulter/Gallacher, breaking Ian's 7 match winning streak

Mickelson/Bradley win the 18th hole for a 1 up victory over McIlroy/Garcia, both of whom gagged on the last hole with the match AS

A good start!

Comment 25 Sep 2014

Thanks, NB.  And, you're right.

Comment 25 Sep 2014

Dontre Wilson will score a TD? Then I think we win by 21.

Comment 25 Sep 2014

I'm napping right now so I can get up and watch.  Love match play and Ryder Cup is the best example in golf.  Biggest problem is finding time for a donut run!
