Dude, some of us have peanut allergies. Be more careful with that sh-t!
The myth that "the cupboard was bare"
Stars out of high school have little value when talking about seniors.
funny how lots of people say this yet still freak out over recruit rankings etc. around signing day.
Do we really think that high school star ratings are the best way to evaluate Junior and Senior college talent?
Ha. We said the same thing at the exact same time. Weird.
will this never end. Am I watching the fucking end of Lamb Chop's play along? Please explain why you thought this was necessary. Then walk in front of a truck
stars are a guide to how good a player might be. In general speaking terms, stars are a very good gauge. But you can't just throw stars down and expect a good defense. It fails to mention that the previous two years saw the subtraction of literally the entire starting defense outside of Terrance Taylor. Yes, there was bad coaching, but the argument that "This is Michigan" doesn't fly, and it seems like that's what you're arguing here.
You are also completely neglecting the offense. Do you know many starters returned that year? I'll give you a hint. It's less than 2.
Fact: It's not a myth.
There's a word for this sort of thing:
I bet I can eat 10 grilled cheese sandwiches in one sitting. Who has the balls to bet against me?
What kind of bread and cheese? That's crucial info here.
Because I'm a patriot. Two slices per sandwich. Generic wheat bread, well buttered on both sides.
Place your bets, bitches!
I have 237 MGoPoints that say "YOU CAN DO IT!"
Anyone could do that. I want to see 10 GC sammies with Cinnabuns for bread and a block of swiss in the middle.
But only because there isn't a Cinnabuns nearby. Otherwise I would wreck that shit.
If you can eat one slice of American cheese, you're a better man than me. Got to be provolone, cheddar, of mozzarelle for me to do anything other than choke one down and woofing 10 double slicers wouldn't be an option. Got to take the under here.
And you claim to be a patriot.
Ciabatta and muenster.
That makes for some serious chewing if its an eating contest. Kinda like making an Iron Man contest more interesting by tying weights to the ankles of the swimmers.
Is this post seriously necessary? Move on.
Do an analysis of the 2008 offense and you will see that your so called "myth" was actually the stone cold truth.
The argument that the cupboard was bare was NOT just on defense. In fact, in my view, the cupboard was even more bare on offense than defense. In fact, I would argue that the horrendous offensive performances often times led to horrible defensive performances (turnovers, 3 and outs, etc.)
Also, what was our defensive depth like in 2008? That would be interesting to see...
Newsflash - President Lincoln has been shot!
Yea, but how was the play?
It ended with a BANG.
The ability to negbomb people CANNOT come back soon enough.
You can, in fact, do that right now. It's just in it's original form.
How the hell did he get an upvote?
I'm thinking it was Great Molk or Rah Glue (if you catch my drift).
Was just about to post the same thing. He has 9 now :/
Maybe it was self inflicted.
Where were all those seniors and great guys ready to take over in 2009? 2010? Did you seriously think it all through before you thought about hitting enter, or did you just have a fuck it moment where you decided to stir up a controversy that didnt even exist?
Look at overall depth. You'll see the defense was good in 2008 but thin. The offense was non-existent.
RR brought the offense back to respectability, but the thin depth at defense in 2008 was not addressed in time, and ultimately led to what we saw last year.
You should be proud of yourself. I hope it was you, that you rewarded yourself with an upvote. That would be the icing on the cake.
Profits must be down, since you can't get any new Bolivian clients, no?
I'm a Board-Appointed advocate and, as such, I take all matters on a pro bono basis. No payment occurs, except maybe some expense reimbursement. I only do it out of the goodness of my heart and my desire to give something back to the MGoCommunity. It'll be fun to see if the point system all of a sudden kicks into action and tabulates all of the votes from the past few weeks. That would be awesome.
I agree with your decision not to represent the OP. I know that under our great legal system, every accused is entitled to a defense, but sometimes you just have to look the other way to allow justice to take its course!
If all of our "free" neg-banging suddenly counted, I'd go broke faster than the clowns on the next bus to Bolivia.
When Michigan airports stop serving destinations in Bolivia.
They hate us for our freedoms; freedoms from repercussions and one-way tickets and such.
In every which way. I don't have time to itemize.
Damn that video...DAMN IT TO HELL!!!
Oh and you suck
Your sig link actually supplied some useful football information for me in this thread. Considering the OP's start, that is a pretty amazing accomplishment. Kudos.
If I remember correctly the defense was the only reason we were in a couple games that year. When you have an offense that basically does nothing but 3 and outs all game long it is pretty hard for the defense to make stops all the time.
And we may have had some good recruits starting but did we have anyone behind them. The secondary and linebackers the last 2 seasons makes me think we didn't.
Who the fuck is "Donnavon" Warren?
was a fashion designer I think...
He did a great job covering that Elizabeth Smart case.
