|1 year 35 weeks ago||I totally agree with you.||
Dave Brandon definitely has a Lowest Common Denominator marketing philosophy.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||I live in fear||
awaiting the next stray dogs and cats that get tacked on to this conference.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||I guess now we're just taking||
any stray dog or cat that wanders by.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||I hope our new buffoonish mascot||
will also be wearing the uniform every week. That would be cool.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||The Plaza Tavern||
If you like relaxed dive bars, check out The Plaza Tavern at 319 N. Henry Street and have a Plazaburger. As I recall, it's off State Street towards the Capitol.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Well, I guess RR||
can take solace in the fact that he is now a real "Michican Man" because he is a former coach. As I understand it, all former coaches - and assistant coaches - are Michigan Men. Maybe someday he can be re-hired because he now has the credentials that he didn't have when he was the actual coach.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Wolfman,||
I think your greatest fear is also the most likely scenario.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Dear wesq,||
Your moral superiority is duly noted. Now you better hurry along to your Women's Studies class.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Ironically, RR||
is a "Michigan Man" now because he is now a former coach - just like Brady Hoke. Now he could get hired and there'd be no problem.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Big name doubtful||
Michigan is not going to be able to get a big name DC because a big name DC would want to be the head coach himself and would not work for a head coach who has yet to distinguish himself.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||I don't know how||
this post and this discussion ever ended up on this blog. When Palen derangement syndrome is allowed to get in to this blog, it's hit a new low. It call into question the judgement of the people running this blog. That was a bad choice, guys.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||In a few years,||
with a little luck, we'll be able to consistently produce 9 - 3 teams. Undefeated? Doubt it. But 9 -3 is achievable and 10 - 2 in a good year. That's pretty good, right? We still have a huge stadium and cool helmets, but it's gonna be a long time before anyone is afraid to walk into Michigan Stadium to play us.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||That's the funniest thing I've seen in a while.||
That is very funny.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||If the guys could win this||
If the guys could win this one, it would move everything forward by tons. The Silver Football thing for Denard is a big deal. The Trib does not have a Michigan bias.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Bottom line||
The reason why we have no direction in our football program is because we do not know which idea will win: Absolute Speed (RR) vs Strength (JH). DB is trying see which will win.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||The rest of the Big 10||
The rest of the Big 10 schools could beat us every game from here to eternity and I still wouldn't trade my UM degree for one of theirs.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||I simply cannot believe that||
I simply cannot believe that we lost this game. I just can't believeit.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||This team is getting better,||
This team is getting better, even throught the losses. They're getting tighter (I mean, more together) and more determined. These guys aren't gonna stop. RR, the coaches, and especially the players are building something good. These guys are becoming a force. Slowly but surely.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Not if it's a home and home.||
Not if it's a home and home. I don't want to see us on a blue football field. It just looks stupid. It really does.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||You may be right about Jay||
You may be right about Jay Cutler. I live in Chicago and I'm not sure Jay Cutler is ever going to be the same. Not this season, at least.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||That's exactly right||
Whoever can pull the sword from the rock.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||When I first heard about the||
When I first heard about the Alabama game, the first thing I thought was that RR is here through 2012. No way we're changing coaches. And that means he's here to stay - which is fine with me. By 2012, we'll be a match for Alabama.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||There's a lot of people who||
There's a lot of people who think that if someone has a Southern/rural/country/whatever accent, then they're not too bright. You find this a lot at Northern academic institutions, especially high-ranking academic institutions.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||What does your cat think AJ||
What does your cat think AJ Jordan will do? Perhaps she could spell it on your keyboard.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||These repetitive questions||
These repetitive questions are getting really boring. It's getting to be time for RR to tell these smart-ass, ankle-biters what they can go do with themselves. He's put up with more than enough.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Definitely a jab at U.M.||
He was definitely commenting on the "simplicity" of the Michigan offense. As in, "anyone can do it". Rather immature. MSU's inferiority complex certainly runs deep. It has even permeated their coaching staff.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Yes||
That would be cool.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||(No subject)|
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Fine. Go.||
If you havn't noticed, we're gonna break this thing. I've watched this for a long time, and I think we're finally gonna break this thing. You know what I mean. We're gonna be really, really good.
|4 years 26 weeks ago||Yeah, you're right. I'm||
Yeah, you're right. I'm going to retract that. I'm being too pessimistic. I'm not in a very good mood this year.
