The Week That Were: 11.27.10

Here’s the soundtrack for this week’s journey through the recent past. It’s from one of my favorite artists, and the greatest Thanksgiving movie ever ANDIWILLFIGHTYOUIFYOUDISAGREE. Ahem. Although I usually don’t take requests, I almost made an exception for Coach Rodriguez. What a great week of football- three days worth of collegiate goodness, interspersed with some […]

Know your enemy: That team up North edition

On November 11th, I made a trip out to Irvine, California for an extended weekend visit.  That evening my friend and I were doing some shopping for dinner and decided to stop in at the local Trader Joe’s for a bottle of Two-Buck Chuck.  At the checkout, I pulled out my credit card and the […]

Thank God for tBBC’s generous expense account.  A couple folks have asked- I had to travel this week for business. No, not work related; the business […]

The Week That Were: 11.06.10

Our weekly foray into the world of college sports brings with it certain challenges, not the least being the choice of an appropriate soundtrack. For instance, this week we were looking to honor the new month as well as the chaos that’s come out west to the Big 12 teams that travel from home. So, […]

The Week That Were: 10.30.10

Happy Halloween! As tempting as it is for me to throw a little Western History at you with today’s musical accompaniment, let’s go with something a little more Disney: Following up on our Protestant Reformation reference, let’s jump in with the  goings on over at Ntre Ame. Remember when beating Notre Dame was a significant […]

What We Did On Summer Vacation- NCAA Edition

Summer is almost over, bringing with it a mixture of disappointment from schoolkids and excitement for college football fans. This guy, however, is probably going to have the same experience, summer or fall. Footage from someone we know? Hard to tell for sure… What we do know, though, is that it has been a pretty […]

So you think you hate Rich Rodriguez?

You should talk to a West Virginia fan- especially today: WVU Turns Itself In To NCAA For Violations When the NCAA began investigating allegations at Michigan that Rodriguez had too many coaches on the practice field and was exceeding the time limit for preparation per week, WVU was included in the investigation. Obviously, that’s because […]

The Hits Keep Coming, More Michigan Fun

Everyone Point and Laugh at Michigan

After three years under Rich Rodriguez, Michigan still doesn’t know what the hell they are doing on defense. link While they are talking about being versatile and situational, the Wolverines’ base will be a 3-3-5 — three down linemen, three linebackers and five defensive backs. Well, at least it seems it will be a 3-3-5. […]

Michigan Man

Usually, I would hold off on posting something like this, choosing instead to savor the sweat tears of sad pandas before moving on. Celebrate the victory over PSU before relishing Mich1gAAn’s failures. But, I seem to have some extra salt, and they have open wounds, so here you go. First, a bit of perspective. scUM […]
