Not to be rude but I do believe you misspelled "Bayless" sir.  He's beneath the bottom of the barrel.

Meet AMOS.  Amos is a horrible monkey statue that was left over from a charity garage sale that I worked with a buddy who is a UM fan.  In 2016 when he talked a lot of smack I asked him how confident he was in coach Hairball.  Confident enough to let the winner decorate that wretched monkey in his team's colors and the loser has to display it for a YEAR in his house?  Sure, said Mr. Wolveriniee.

And there you have it.  There he is holding AMOS - the Awful Monkey of Shame.

I have him back to redecorate after the 2017 win.  This year he features red LED lights and a big pic of Curtis Samuel scoring the winning TD.  I will also include a pic of Harbaugh's tweet about how whining is not attractive.

AMOS is supposed to go back and forth between us but of course if the scummers can't beat Urban with a senior laden roster like last year when will AMOS ever wear the puke yellow and blue?  Answer: NEVER.

Maybe the Wolverines are actually winning - the more scarlet and gray I put on AMOS the better I think he looks!  I'm actually getting to where I kinda like him! LOL

Think you're spot on.  

* Bo says "he's never done that kind of recruiting" but you CAN'T get that kind of talent to Gardener-Webb or even Butler.

* Bo said Gene's expectations are what Thad did in his first 7 years.  No.  Gene said "Top 15 and occasionally top 5."  I don't agree that such is undo-able for OSU or our new coach.

* Bo said Matta got two "one and dones"  in Connelly and Oden in his second year.  Yeah .. . but no one thought Connelly was going pro after one year until he had the incredible tourney run.

I thought Bo was a little hard on the new coach, while continually saying "it can be great."  Clearly doesn't think it IS great.  Hoping Bo turns out to be quite wrong.

Not gonna lie - think overall we didn't do so well that half.  If this was Mexico I'd be thrilled.  It's not.

I think all soccer fans need to write Golden State a thank you note (hockey guys - you can get in here too):

"Dear GS,

Thank you for making professional basketball completely uninteresting and helping our ratings tremendously.


MLB, NHL, MLS and the USMNT (and fishing, golf, croquet and napping)

looks like we have five left after tonight.  Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Honduras, Panama and Trin and Tobago.

Would love an article detailing what you're looking at/for in the O line in the first few minutes of the game.  You're right: TV doesn't hardly show you much else so it'd be great to be able to pick up on some things from watching the line.  Please please write that up for us!

Comment 14 May 2017

It's hard to figure what's going on here ... obviously we're outsiders and don't know/can't know everything Thad, Gene & Co. know but it really looks like we're going to just throw a season away, change coaches and start over in 2018.  If so, why not just cut your losses and start now?  Maybe (here's the optimist in me) they've got the next guy lined up but he's not willing to come till 2018 so we're just going to tread water (or drown) until 2018?

saw that someone said "One day we'll look back on ESPN like we do MTV.  Remember when they showed music videos?  Remember when ESPN showed sports?"

Comment 23 Mar 2017

Why is it a bad question?   And why does Saban have to go off on him even if it was a bad question?

Urban would never treat anybody that way and neither would Tress -- because they are decent human beings and they have CLASS.

Saban is a miserable jerk who treats everyone around like dirt and does not appear to even be satisfied or happy when his minions win him a NC.  This is just more ridiculous behavior on his part.

If you google up the full quote he says a lot of stuff about why they lost the NC game to Clemson and that they don't need to go to a ball control offense they just needed to execute.  I think that was the real reason he went off - he's still ticked off he lost a NC.

Comment 19 Mar 2017

It's pretty hard to watch a team get coached up and perform better as the season goes along into the tourney that is from ANN ARBOR when we can't seem to manage that very thing ...  And beating Lville is a legit win, any way you slice it.  

It's a very reluctant hat tip to them and a lot of gnashing of teeth and thinking about what we ought to be doing.  Yuck.

Comment 09 Mar 2017

I'd only be for it if big changes were made.  The guys who played like they didn't care - they don't even travel.  Let's see five new guys and maybe if the ones who are left no its open season on starting spots they might come out with some fight.  Now that would be interesting!  But watch more of the same ol' same ol'?  Nah.  I'm good (and sick).

Comment 06 Jan 2017

Lots of great ROW puns and jokes here ... but wondering if that stays at WM (it's on their jerseys and helmets!) or is that a Fleck thing that he brings to Minny?

Comment 02 Dec 2016

Mike & Mike are entertaining.  Period.  They never said they were geniuses, or they had brilliant analysis.  They're just two funny guys talking sports - kinda like a lot of us here.  BTW, if you missed the episodes where Golic demolished the donut challenge you missed some really good stuff.  Don't even get me started on him losing a bet and having to eat burgers with ghost peppers on them!  They're entertainers and I find them to be very entertaining.

As for their opinion that Bama would beat us badly ... I happen to share it.  Does anyone honestly look at our DOA offense and think we're moving the ball on Bama's D?  I told my TTUN friend I wasn't worried about them because the best part of their D is the pass and we can't pass so it wouldn't matter...  It's gonna matter against Bama, folks.

Can we beat Bama?  Of course we can.  Will we beat Bama?  Um, well ... I sure hope so!  But I'm not going ESPN Conspiracy Theory over M & M saying we won't be favored.

Comment 01 Dec 2016

Yuck.  I think he was getting about the most out of IU that could be gotten.  He made them better but it's a hoops school and always will be.  That hurts the conference but if he did bad things, esp w/concussions, then it's on him and being flat stupid.

Comment 01 Dec 2016

Realizing this may start a complete fire but I would be interested in GTH's and other informed, reasonable takes on our chances against Bama.  I've seen the Fightin' Sabans several times this year (TV) and their defense is STOUT.  We really struggled offensively Saturday against the Stink Badgers.  I'm wondering what happens if we end up with Bama ... wow.  That defense is very very good.  Their O may not be great (maybe the final is 3-0) but that QB is legit.  So ... hard to argue with the money boys in Vegas saying it's a TD but it looks to me like they may be much better than that.  Thoughts?  It's not can we beat Bama (of course we can and 2014 showed that) but what's the likelihood of beating Bama and what's the way to get that done?

I'm thinking he's driving a lot of GMs absolutely crazy ... and making Cowboy fans like me deliriously happy!
