My thoughts about your title: redundent and randomly capitalized.
My thoughts about tomorrow vs AF [ED:BISB- New Rule. Please Note]
My thoughts: I want to murder you.
Just put down the knife, we can talk this out...
I feel like this is the same conversation over and over again... Yes, Denard is fast. No, Borges is not Rich Rod. Yes, Michigan will prevail.
Yeah. Let's run Denard against Bama. Guys who are taking (legal) potshots at Denard when he runs to hurt him. Let's run Denard against a brick wall (which their front seven was). Let's run Denard into a 6'4 360 pound defensive end. Let's run him against a team where the benefit gained from running him is infinitely less than the calamity that will occur if he gets hurt against AF fergodsakes.
He has improved vastly as a passing QB. The mechanics and decision making are finally on track to being average (which, coupled with the threat of the scramble is good enough to be elite). Gardner is a monster and will be making fools out of the AF defense. Look to see Denard throw 3 TDs with 0 INTs. 1 TD to Gardner, 1 to Gallon, and 1 to Tree.
Martinez can pass now? My friend who watched him last week said he looked like a different guy.
I'm pretty confident in your backs, you had a few kids behind burkhead who looked great. I'd only be concerned about your offensive line depth, and getting sucked into a shootout, but Martinez passing like he was adds a whole new dimension to the Nebraska offense.
Burkhead being hurt killed my moral last weekend.
if Burkead's injury had only shaken your moral last weekend, as a result I guess you would have loose morals. Which makes you sound kind of fun.
But if his injury killed your morals, well then, with no morals you sound kind of dangerous.
Does this mean I can start a new thread about MY thoughts on Alabama game and another one on AF game?
As I posted above, I am unilaterally implementing a new rule. Well, I guess the rule isn't NEW so much as it just hasn't been enforced. Either way, it's a thing now, and it's called the Snowflake Rule. The Snowflake Rule is simple: threads that just repeat the same stuff everyone else is thinking are not thread-worthy. Here are some ways to know if you are in violation of the Snowflake Rule:
- Your thread title begins with the words "My thoughts on," "My opinion regarding," or "What I think about"
- You cover a topic tat has been covered multiple times on the board or on the front page
- The evidence supporting your post's hypothesis is entirely (a) opinion and/or (b) empty, high-level, tautological statements like "Denard is fast"
- Your conclusion is something either obvious or completely opinion-based, like "we will be better if the blockers block people" or "Kalis should play because I think he'd be better." Or, as a totally hypothetical example, "Denard should run because Denard is fast at running."
Bottom line: posting a unique take on things is perfectly acceptable. If you want to post about a proposed defensive alignment or scheme that will allow the line to get better penetration? Knock yourself out. Want to demonstrate why Denard should run more by providing an analysis of past running QBs or of Michigan's success based on various run/pass ratios? We'd like to read it. But posting your take on a common question will get your thread pulled like something from a Weezer song.
I checked with Stanzi, and he gave it the go-ahead. We're good.
Also, plus one internet for this comment/post edit/whatever it is. In addition, one retroactive internet for the Twitter post and anything else you've posted recently.
Weezer... but I don't have any stats to prove it, it's just my opinion
Can we make a sticky out of this?
If I ever needs a mouthpiece, I'm hirin' you. You use them words all purdy like.
Beer>after midnight>low point total.
Interesting, do we have to sit down with the mods to discuss what we believe are "unique takes"
Background: I have been away from the Boards during the off-season and now that I review the Board again I have noticed a strong shift towards "dumb post, been discussed" in almost every posting.
Thesis: It seems to me that many posters want to create a community of posters that are aware of each topic, however nuanced and detailed, which has been posted & discussed in threads. Those who don't take a minimum of 15-30 mins. to review all posts related to their subject matter for the past 3 months, no exaggeration, are roundly criticized for "this was posted before".
TL; DR: This board is becoming bifurcated between casual reader / poster and the MGoBLogites who have no time for casual readers. It's a shame that's happening.
I have noticed a strong shift towards "dumb post, been discussed" in almost every posting.
That's kind of the point. People can discuss stuff that has been discussed before, but regardless of how often you read the board, the board simply isn't big enough for everyone to create a thread with their own special opinions on the same shit everyone is already discussing. I'm sorry if I have offended your sensibilities, but if you were around more often you might recognize the need for this.
...run like whiskey bootlegger from the feds, like tommy gun bullets, like the demon speed of fear and ambition's cold sweat, like sinew straining to escape gnashing teeth, when men with leverage would press you in a more obvious way, like open, under the sun, blood in front of women and children instead of hiding behind decrees and town cars, like speed itself, light; not memory, not concept, not shape but movement unfixed between happened and did not happen.
Lmao, wtf was that??
Denard is so fast . . . he can beat Usain Bolt in a 40 yard sprint.
Didn’t we already establish and rehash this point a couple of weeks ago? Sounds like a violation of the snowflake rule to me, and you need to be melted. /s
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
While I love Michigan football, the board is burning me out with these repetitive lunacy threads dissing Borges and repeating ad infinitum, "why don't we run Denard more? Everything will just be fine if we let Denard run."
Maybe my problem is limiting my reading to mgoblog. But man, some of the mgomemes are mind numbing.
- I think that BWC is going to save the day this year.
- My opinion is that DB is evil incarnate and wants to ruin Michigan.
- RR was the worst coach evar.
- The Freep is a bunch of hacks: they should be boycotted forevar.
- Kate Upton jiggling to a honky tonk "Hail to the Victors" never gets old.
- I think that we should just give the starting QB position next year to Shane.
Thank you for making it stop.
Pro tip: Brevity should be your new thing.
Heh...I googled Honky Tonk Hail to the Victors, because I wanted to hear what that sounds like, and the #1 hit is this thread.
You have it, BISB
Bellomy starts at QB with Justice Hayes at RB. Fitz is still in the doghouse and Hoke makes him be an usher. Fitz then pretends not to notice all the people who are in the wrong section so he can watch the game. Denard replaces Countess and Gardner starts for Black on the D-Line. Then, GERG abducts Greg before the game so he can bring the stuffed beaver back to the Big House. GERG moves Roh to linebacker and benches Demens. Gorgeous Al decides to return to the glory days of Mike Hart and run zone left all day no matter what. HOWEVA, since they are playing Air Force this is surprisingly effective. Hayes and Norfleet both have over 200 yards rushing. The D under GERG is terrible and Air Force keeps scoring points. Michigan wins in the 3rd OT with LS Glanda scoring the winning touchdown on a pass from Dilieo.
Saw the AFA football team at rush street tonight. we will win big. GO BLUE!
Honestly, you see the large red bottle of wicked chili sauce and realize you cannot truly call yourself a man unless you coat half your dish with the stuff. It is hot but with a generous portion of rice to cut it and a tall glass of H2O it isn't all that intimidating. Some people squirt it into pho but I find that ruins the taste. Also, it's very good on sausage.
nail on the head
And that's a fact...not an opinion.
I have never had a bibimbop as good, and lord knows, I've tried.
I've actually made bibimbap at home a few times. It is time-consuming and can be hard to find all the ingredients, but it's not especially difficult to make and then, of course, you can make it how you like it.
at 8:55 in the morning. Studied up and made some a while ago--my guests claimed to love it but it wasn't the same.
Because when ou're trying to get a date with one of the waitresses you go through the menu fast.
I find a dash of Sriracha actually helps the taste. The problem is when you've added so much that chili dominates that flavor. If Borges would just let Denard be Denard, he'd find that perfect balance between the herbs, chilis, lime juice and rich stock.
Wish it would've been enforced during last weekends MGoMeltdown.
Using more than one exclamation point in a post. If it were up to me, I'd impose a 60-day banhammer for using more than three, and six months for five or more.
You’re so right!!!!
Even though it's painful to do, if you watch the video of every offensive snap from the Bama game you can see that Denard's passing game really has improved. Yes he did throw some balls that weren't on target and had the pick 6. However, he also didn't throw off his back foot so much as he used to, made a few few very nice reads, and had a couple good, accurate passes where he stepped up into and manipulated the pocket well.
So before you sell him short on his passing game wait and see how he looks against defenses that aren't the freakin University of Alabama.
I agree. It's a almost an entirely different game if he completes those first three passes. Not saying the score would be different. The defense would have played us a lot different though.
Slippery Pickle Football - Go Blue!
I would like to see us run the annexation of Puerto Rico.
Just win, and win B1G..Go Blue.
Mean people sucks? Excellent post!!!!
By the way, I think this frigid (relatively), weather is conducive to a Michigan victory. I think it might snow
The OP could totally redeem himself if he posted a thread entitled "Any news??" The more question marks the better. Those are the only threads better than a "My Thoughts" thread.
I say first half unleash Denard an let him be Denard, then second half I want to see Bellomy and what he can do since he is now the back up
we're up big after the first half, you'll definitely see him get some snaps.
"He's so fast that he makes fast people look...not fast."
Remember, snowflakes only melt in Bolivia!
I'm expecting that Denard will have a great season, starting Today. I can't wait until game time. See you in the live blog!
How about we stop comparing Borges to Rodriguez(lookin at you Brian). For all this talk about Denard running the ball, and Rodriguez would have done this, and Rodriguez would have done that...
Rodriguez's dumb ass didn't recruit linemen who can compete with Alabama's. That is why Michigan didn't run the ball. So you can stop your lovestruck longing for Rodriguez's scheme any time now. I love our linemen, and I will root for them with every breath I have. They are more than good enough to win a B1G championship. But to suggest that scheme would have kept Michigan in that game when our guys up front were just getting owned on every play...
Rodriguez loses that game 120-21. Would that extra touchdown have made you happy?
Smaller pulling linemen can work against big plodding front 7's. But when the opponent is bigger AND faster...not going to go well.
Rodriguez' teams shredded those squads.
The only Rodriguez team I care about lost to Mississippi State 52-14.

Borges is a WCO coach under a directive to play MANBALL. Denard is the prototypical spread QB. It's not a perfect situation, but they are making it work.
Whenever a radical system change is made, the coach needs five years to have his own personnel in place running his system. It would be foolish to ask any coach to delay installing his system, because it just delays the "growing pains."
Denard isn't worried about his individual accomplishments. That's good enough for me.
The has been the best thread I've read in a while. As much as I can't stand the word "kudos," I believe it's warranted here.
he is god like in ncaa 2013!!!
Quiet Thoughts and then proceed to share his opinions in the manner of Jack Handey.
Why do you want to destroy sweaters? Actually, in this case, pull the thread and walk away.
Ahh, I used to love that song. Good old Weezer.
