Tuesday Happy Hour is Still Grumpy, Thanks for Asking

Maize n Brew gives you your daily (or semi-daily) rundown of all the Michigan Football, Michigan Basketball, College Football, and College Basketball news you need to get through the tedium of your boring desk job. For good measure we'll throw in a little irreverent information, comedy and commentary to help you salt away the time until the clock strikes 5pm. If you want Maize n Brew in 140 characters or less, follow us on Twitter! Or you can become a fan of Maize n Brew on Facebook for more links. Here's what's ON TAP

Stuff You Must Read Right Now

Dulcet tones for all  - Dolla Bill Doug from EDSBS has your buyer's guide to the announcers who describe our obsessions.  Interestingly, Millen not included.

The BCS is bunk  -  But, the early projections are out.  Boise State at #1.  Kellen Moore is quite good, but it's easy with a 2 game season.

All Hail the Alphabetical  -  Appointment reading from Spencer Hall, majordomo of EDSBS.

Michigan Football

Iowa worries about Denard  - defensive analysis/expectation from BHGP.

I disagree, but this is worth reading - BHGP again, one of their commenters take on the Michigan/Michigan State game.  Obi Ezeh is still horrible, though, in every possible universe. 

SO true - The M-Zone is exactly right.  After these infrequent losses to MSU, every Spartan fan you know, or encounter, will seek you out.  I recommend booze.

Analysis of the week that was  - Go Blue Michigan Wolverine looks back, but not in anger.  What did Saturday mean? [Ed. Note - It meant our defense is just as bad as we thought.]

Big Ten Football

Power Poll, with extra cuteness  - Who doesn't like pictures of puppies?  Communists, that's who.

Special teams are "special" in the Big Ten this year.  It's only a third of the game, no big deal.

Follow up after OSU dismantled Indiana  - ATO on the reaction to their win, and to being ranked #1.  Folks, the Buckeyes are good.  (Terrelle Pryor still not that impressive to me, though)

MSU beat Michigan. Now what?  - The Only Colors look ahead to the remainder of their season.

Quality, quality analysis  - Bucky's 5th Quarter does an admirable job evaluating Wisconsin's defense, and why they miss Jay Valai.  Safety play is important, apparently. 

College Football

Wake and Bake?  - The Curious Index pays homage to the agrarian tendencies of Jamal Atofau from Washington State.  What's wrong with running a home business, I say?  It's illegal?  Oh.

 LEARN  - Smart Football is, well, smart.  Pay close attention to the piece on Norm Parker of Iowa, and also the part on Nebraska's inverted veer attack.  I realize KSU is bad, but what Nebraska did to them last Thursday was impressive.

Looking ahead to the bye week  - October 23, Eastern Market, Detroit, MI, 1-6 pm.  The Fall Michigan Beer Festival.  Be there.  I will. [Ed. Note - WOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!]
