    Playing with House Money: 2022 Michigan Football

    "And that maybe this is Michigan's best, last chance to regain national relevance in college football under Jim Harbaugh." Well, except for last year. And next year. I think OSU will be more organized and maybe the weather will be more cooperative (lolz), but the Ryan Day Buckeyes don't fill...

    Playing with House Money: 2022 Michigan Football

    Hard to say because Nebraska is a complete wreck. Same as other weeks, I guess. There was an obligatory big play in Nebraska's scripted drive that proved harmless. Their QB escaped pressure and gained yards a couple of times - containing the edges could be an issue against Stroud. Otherwise...

    Playing with House Money: 2022 Michigan Football

    There was some talk on the MGoBlog Pod that the flu had gone through the team - Corum and Schoonmaker both looked wrecked near the end of the game (more than usual). JJ was definitely off target on multiple throws. Worst special teams day in the Harbaugh era. Et cetera.

    RIP Roger Angell

    I am saddened to hear this. Reading his various baseball compilations got me through some hard times as a young adult. I've tried to explain baseball fandom - involving, but also beyond the Red Sox - by pointing people to the last paragraph of Agincourt and After (his wrap-up of the 1975 MLB...

    Pearl Jammin' with Grandpa, the Bill Simmons Thread

    Bill's thing with anything in the 70's and 80's being influenced by cocaine really gets beat into the ground in the latest Rewatchables. I'm actually ok with Bill being a balance with more knowledgeable hosts, but his coke comments are almost as boring to me as the "on the list of the best ever"...

    U8 Soccer - first time head coach and a challenging player

    I would talk to his dad and get some advice on how to reach the kid. Be diplomatic, but you have to bring this kid in a little before he blows up every practice. Also recruit the dad to give some coaching to the kid for the post-practice car ride. The dad not reacting while observing isn't a...

    Yankees to retire Paul O’Neill’s number

    I spent a weekend on the RF porch at the old Tiger Stadium heckling O'Neill. It's strange now to think how much I hated the Yankees.

    Super Bowl LVI: Bengals vs Rams

    It's been fun shitting on the Lions over the past few weeks (and they have earned it) but Barry wasn't fond of putting his head into a hole for short yardage. Someone upthread suggested that Mixon dances too much for 3/4th and 1. Same thing: Barry never went straight into a hole. There was...

    Super Bowl LVI: Bengals vs Rams

    The non-call OT false start will become the new non-call holding. Refs appear to be letting that go at all levels.

    Bengals OL prevented them from putting it away.

    Pearl Jammin' with Grandpa, the Bill Simmons Thread

    In today's pod, BS proposed that the Chiefs/Bills game needs a name like "The Drive" or "The Catch." His proposal? "13 Seconds" - which will sound familiar to anyone in last night's game thread.

    Why hasn't that war chant receive more criticism? Didn't the Braves stop doing it 20 years ago?
