"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

|5 days 11 hours ago||Both great cars||
especially the 1993 RS America. A proper Porsche!
|5 days 17 hours ago||I own a 2014 Porsche GT3||
and previously owned 360 and 430 Ferrari's. The GT3 is the fastest. Unfortunately, there is little opportunity to use the speed. The best you could hope for is maybe a 30 seconds spurt and hope there are no policemen around.
The track is the place for the car but the problem is most insurance companies exclude accidents that occur at the track. You could buy track insurance but for a one day event it will cost around $1000 plus a high deductible and capped car value.
In short, owning a high performnce car is like going to bed with a beautiful woman and allowed only foreplay. There are some limited benefits but not why your in bed.:)
|1 week 4 days ago||The one secret to JH success is||
COMPETITON! He lives by this principle and the sooner all his players and coaches embrace this concept the sooner they will win.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||We should not get hung up||
on wins and losses. This is a work in progress. Sit back enjoy the football. I believe it will competitive and entertaining. If they lose, I will keep it in perspective. If they win it is a bonus.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Four years of experience at QB||
in the conference is a huge plus. I cannot say he will be great but I am certain he will be very good for Michigan. The unknown is wheher he will start. Rudock is similar to Alex Smith and we all know what happened to him. JH opted for a gun slinger who can run sort of like Morris. It will be interesting.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Harbaugh is a fabulous coach||
and we are lucky to have him. That said, interviews are not his forte. I have followed him from USD to Stanford and SF. and I can't recall him hitting a home run on any interview.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Brown is using college as a||
training camp for his tranfer to the pro's. Michigan and Kentuckyn are high profile schools with big expectations. He isn't interested in publicity and team record. I doubt he believes Cal will make it to the final four. He wants to develop without pressure and knows the pro scouts will be monitoring his progress.
This could be the rationale for his decision to go to Cal.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||I posted this clip yesterday and it||
was taken down. Can't figure the mods on this site.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Read the attached article and listen to comments||
from MIke and MIke show to get a more balanced view. Interesting how M&M compare JH to Coach K.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Keep in mind that the defense was very good last year||
They never were blown out and would have been better if the offense gave them respite and good field position. They kept us in the game against OSU until a busted fourth and one play which gutted the defense morale.
NO doubt they will be better this year. A big test will be when they play BYU. Without a pass rush it may be a long afternoon.
More importantly, our offense needs to improve, score some points and keep the ball longer.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Well written||
We need to be patient with this team and staff. JH is only as good as his players. If he has the players he can coach them. If not, it doesn't matter how good of a coach he and is staff are.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Let's hope the players||
will have the same passion.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||This much we do know||
Duke's academic standing is as good if not better than Michigan. Yet they are able to recruit to be in the top ten almost every season.
Publishing excuses for Michigan's failures this year is not helpful. The players failed as did the coaching staff in coaching and recruiting. We need to stop looking at this with rose colored glasses and acknowledge the performance this year is unacceptable and substantal improvement is required.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||We all need to stop assuming||
Harbaugh's attraction is stronger with recruits than other top tier coaches.
|22 weeks 14 hours ago||A four or five star player||
asked to compete against several other four and five star players is not an inducement to come to Michigan regardless of who the coach is.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||He has all the physical attributes||
to be very successful in the NFL. All he needs is someone to coach him up. He will go in the first round.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||Who is he?||
Is he the one that played for Houston for one year?
|24 weeks 13 hours ago||You have to try real hard to||
laugh during most of the episodes. Without the laugh and applause signs in the theater most of the gags would generate little if any laughter.
That said, the show did produce some real good satire.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||I suspect had Clark picked Michigan||
Wheatley would have gone elsewhere.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||More than anyone it is||
Michigan who would love for Hoke to get another coaching job. It does not matter where.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Though this is an interesting exercise||
we must keep the process in context.
The combined average of star rating for players on Seattle was 2.4 and for New England 2.3. Additionally, neither team had a five star player coming out of high school. Seattle had four 4 star players and NE had 3.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||What about MSU recruiting||
and results. How about TCU and Baylor.
Look I get if you recruit good players and have good coaches the results will show. However, the difference between a 4-5 star player and 3-4 isn't that great. Whatever the difference coaching will make up for it.
Moriato (?) was the second string QB on his high school team. What was Cardale Jones rating?
|26 weeks 1 day ago||The recruiting drama is||
way overblown. There are many good players and losing one or two or ten for that matter will have minimal impact so long as we have good coaching.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||I may be off base but I believe||
the issue of recruiting top ranked players is way overblown. MSU has proved this. Name me one Michigan highly rated recruit over the Hoke years that has made a difference.He had many of the highest rated classes and yet last season failed to make a bowl game.
Caoching is the difference and Michigan has taken a huge leap in this area.
|29 weeks 16 hours ago||I'll wager there will be a rule change||
concerning this issue. It is unfair to the defense. The same logic of requiring a tackle eligible announcement should apply to a RB ineligible.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||I suspect LeBron had clearance form the school||
and NCAA before he did this.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||are there instructions||
on the site for block quotes? If so, where would I find them?
|29 weeks 2 days ago||But Hoke's recruits||
for the most part have not panned out.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||Harbaugh also said||
I cannot afford to have one bad coach on staff. He will bring the other coaches down with him.
Let's hope JH has good intelligence on this hire.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Let's not let our bias make us stupid!||
Of course we should all be rooting for OSU. A win would be great for the Conference, a boom for recruiting and national respectability. Rooting for OSU under these circumstances is a no brainer.
