  • SPORTS MOMENT: Witnessing Eddie George in 1995 rushing all over a Simeon Rice-led Illinois defense to the tune of 314 yards, 3 TDs, and even catching one... Orlando Pace didn't look too shabby either... it was a wet cold evening, and all the ponchos were out, but will never forget his milestone. He was a man among boys.

First off, the bourbon you like could be the cheapest one on the shelf or the rarest, it doesn't matter so long as you dig it. That said, I take it that you like some discernible character in your bourbon by the fact that you mentioned peaty scotch so you might do well in the options between the $30-70 range. You might try Michters - and even better if you can get a Michters 10yr (very rare find). Have you tried Knob? That isn't too bad of a start or even Evan Williams if you are on a budget

Sure but Navy didn't give a percentage quota, and if you want 100% then go to MGoBlog and have a blast. There are just too much clutter about the smallest things about them as if we are motivating our teams with the tiniest info about who cut the cheese on the field or some stupid stuff that our players don't really need because they are already doing what they need to for the game. We exist without UM so rivalry or no, I'd rather more interesting content about us.

+1 for the insightful comment. Not sure if he has lost the locker room, but you have to see that the WRs are frustrated as hell to not get the ball thrown to them, and I am sure the closeness of team is more frayed than we are seeing. Urban and Chip both said that spread offenses are still very much about prioritizing run first... well, how the hell are you going to run a system like that when you don't have a legit RB + OL. Ed Warinner must not be buying into Gattis' schemes/philosophy, because his line has regressed since last year, which is not like him to accept as a coach (at least from what we saw him do at OSU).

All told, the AD may be forced to make a very difficult decision based on what has transpired since the end of last season and this season. The only card Harbaugh has left is that "everyone knows it takes more than one season to successfully install a new system, so I need another year with Josh Gattis to work this out". Which is not such an easy excuse since Urban went 12-0 with a new spread system --- It just sucks to be a Wolverine. That is all. Have a nice life. lol

It's called a healthy perspective. Don't lose it. The younguns here just don't have a clue of the misery and scarring that it brings, nor do they care to hear our cautiousness, because it is unfathomable for them.

Schadenfreude may be delightful and fun for a while, but in the end, it just means one is enjoying a state of superiority over those who are seemingly below you, and that doesn't make... wait... this is gold! We will remain superior until they get a clue up there that their arrogance is baseless, whereas ours at least has some merit on the football field.

A ton too many in my opinion. Tears may be tasty, but I don't need it served up as if I ordered it, when all I have to do is to look at the scoreboards to know that there are plenty tears and meltdowns. They don't deserve my time.

We will win 62-0 with our backups in midway in the 3rd Q. I see our backups having almost the same if not better stats than the starters.

This is correct. Too many misinterpretations out there at the moment of what actually has happened in the California bill. Also, the argument really is around how are schools to handle said endorsements for their athletes, since there can be conflict of interest - eg, what if a local mens lounge offers huge money to a student athlete... School would be in a pickle since that athlete who is representing the schoolcan be somehow advertised seemingly endorsing men's clubs, too...

There is not enough buzz about the entrance. YouTube and videos DO NOT do the experience justice. Being in the shoe and both hearing and seeing the entrance and the echo throughout the stadium always give me goosebumps. I have them just remembering it

What's weird for me to see through the first 3 games is how the linebackers alignment on the field remind me of Michigan's scheme when Mattison was the DC. This makes total sense of course, since why would he reinvent his scheme if it has worked so well, but humurous to me since I wondered what we would have been able to do with a Michigan defensive scheme last year... IDC - it works and so long as it continues to work and adapt and keep OCs guessing wrongly, I'm all for it!
