Shit bowl. Shit opponent. Shut season
|4 days 59 min ago||We are on the verge oI f losing 5 or more games 7 of the last 10||
years with 1 win against Ohio in 10 and 3 wins against Spart in 10. Doesn't that count as an extended period of mediocrity?
For the fist time in years I actually thought about whether it was worth it to keep my season tickets and pay the PSL. I decided to ride it for another year or two, but its no longer a given in my mind that I will renew.
|4 days 1 hour ago||How do you figure?||
We have tougher schedule and likely a worse offense. 8 wins max and more likely 7.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Well according to some colossal idiots on this board||
and others, we only have ourselves to blame because we make critical forum posts.
|4 days 1 hour ago||The "whose fault is it" thread was the worst||
thread I've ever read on this site. People have lost their god damn minds.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Well how about 9 out of the last 10 and||
12 out of the last 14 head to head matchups? Or how about 1 conference champ versus 7 in the last 10 years?
|4 days 2 hours ago||This is the dumbest fucking bullshit Ive ever read on this site||
anyone who thinks that recruits make their decisions based on a few internet posters and not: 1) the coaching staff, 2) the eduction, 3) the state of the program, 4) playing time opportunities, 5) proximity to home, 6) schools they grew up rooting for, 7) schools their coaches, family and friends support, 8) the opportunity to be on tv, 9) the opportunity to play for championships, 10) the offensive or defensive schemes, 11) hot girls go there, 12) their friends go there, 13) and 53 million other reasons BESIDES fucking blog posters then you are insane.

of these mega contracts. ARod twice, Pujols, Hamilton, Fielder, etc. None of them have or will perform up to their contracts.
|4 days 23 hours ago||What was his avatar?||
As Brian pointed out, avatars make people more noticiable and that is usally how I notice posters.
Also, I wasn't able to see who the other banned posters were. I mean, how can I snarkily revel in some jerks banning if I don't know which jerks we are talking about?!?
|6 days 54 min ago||Michael Carter Williams was the guy the Pistons||
should have drafted. Great size, scoring ability and a good passer.
|6 days 59 min ago||Joe D is easily one of the worst GM's in the league||
Tons of luck went into building that Championship team. Billups and Wallace were both available at the right time for the right price and both made huge jumps in production. Then they were able to steal Wallace in a late salary dump. Prince, Rip and Okur were nice pickups.
On the other side of the ledger we have Darko, the Rip extension, the Billups trade, Ben Gordon, Charlie V, dumping Afflalo for nothing, the Prince extension, Austin Daye, Brandon Knight, DJ White, Carlos Delfino, Rodney White, Mateen Cleves, Michael Curry, John Cuester, Lawrence Frank, etc, etc.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Its going to be another long season on offense||
and with the tougher schedule I easily see another five loss season (including the bowl game). In other words we are looking at a decade in which Michigan lost 5 or more games 7 times.
I hate sports right now.
|6 days 20 hours ago||I know its early but...||
that's an underwhelming list of targets. Few if any major offers among them and most appear to be middling 3 star types. We are putting a lot of faith in Borges to get these QB offers right, which, you know....
|1 week 1 day ago||Amazingly there was one poster who was trying to say||
that Hand should choose Bama because their fans aren't crazy like Michigan fans were. Yeah right.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yup its just like the 4th down call at Northwestern||
I have no problem with the decision by Hoke to be aggressive. The problem is that the play calling made those plays doomed to fail.
It was a great effort by the kids and I love that they laid it all out there. But if anyone is taking this game as a moral victory, especially the coaches/AD I will puke. A loss is still a loss and this is still a miserable season and Borges should still be fired.
|1 week 5 days ago||So anyone who ever sells their seat on Stubhub||
is a bad fan because it may have been bought by an opposing fan? The continuous questioning of people's fanhood on this site is ridiculous. Who the fuck are you to tell anyone ele what they can and cant do with their tickets?
|1 week 6 days ago||I sold my tickets on Stubhub and||
Maybe they were bought by an Ohio fan and mayber they weren't. Either way I dont give a shit what you or anyone else thinks of my decision. It is no one's business but my own what I do with my tickets. If you want to send me $400 everytime I choose not to go to a game to make sure an opponents fan doesn't buy them then maybe we have something to talk about. Otherwise, you can take your opinion and shove it.
|1 week 6 days ago||This times a million||
The team has been a huge disappointment this year and is going backwards as the season goes on, but sure lets blame a few internet posters for potential recruiting failingsand not the coaching staff responsible for the results on the field.
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||Where did I say anything about firing Hoke?||
Seriously people need to stop with the strawmen arguments. Demanding More from Hoke and his staff does not equal wanting the head coach fired. Borges on the other hand probably should go but probably won't.
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||When you treat your fans like consumers and your||
university like a brand then you should not be surprised when those ticket buyers start to make ticket decisions like a commercial transaction weighing the high cost in terms dollars versus the expected low benefit in terms of a curb stomping by our most hated rival for the 9th time in the last 10 years.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||There is no guarantee that any particular coach||
will be here in 2016, let alone any particular player, nor is there any guarantee that the coaches will be able to get the most out of said players. I'm sorry, but waiting for the remote possibility that 2015 will be something great just doesn't cut it right now. Not when when we are looking at another 6 loss season. And not when 2014 looks so unpromising that we are likely to see our 9th loss out of the last 10 to Ohio and 6 losses to Sparty in the last 7.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'm both a Cubs ticket holder and a Michigan ticket holder||
and for both, the games are about so much more than wins and loses. The atmosphere matters greatly. As both costs and loses rise, however, it gets more and more difficult to justify the expense versus the entertainment return. Couple that with an increasing decline in the traditional feel that made both experiences great (i.e. piped in cheesy music vs the organ/band) and my decision to renew my tickets get tougher every year.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I think you may be the one who needs to get a grip||
Over the last decade we have the 28th best winning percentage behind such luminary programs like Tulsa, Navy, Louisville and Northern Illinois.

and you would have more of a point.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Holland is the most overrated GM in sports||
Name one good trade or free agency acquisition he has made since Hossa? Now that the cap has evened the playing field Holland has flailed about and wasted the last years of Lidstrom Datsuyk and Zetterbergs careers. The strength of the Wings organization has always been in amateur scouting and drafting. Things are only going to get worse now that a lot of the true talent in the front office has moved on.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||great move! Dombrowski shows again why he is||
the best GM in detroit by a mile. Unlike Kenny Holland, he has guts and he is willing to rectify past mistakes and unlike Joe Dumars he is not an idiot. Mayhew doesn't even belong in the discussion until the Lions prove 2011 wasn't a fluke.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe the disconnect comes from the fact||
that us "older" alumni go to games and get there on time, while students do not. Just sayin'
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Christ- this is about the only thing that could make the game||
worse. The inevtiable huge embarassing beatdown was bad enough. Now this.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Ugly day for Speight||
and a little concerning given his main attribute is supposed to be accuracy.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The season isn't over yet||
The offensive ranking is sure to keep dropping over the next 3 games.
