|1 day 14 hours ago||Aren't gravity waves created||
by super nova's colliding and creating a black hole the result of which is the release of gravity waves? Is there a practical everyday application for our knowledge of GW?
|1 day 14 hours ago||Gravity waves are created when||
two massive bodies merge (super nova) created a black hole. I don't believe the waves are a result of the big bang.
|1 day 21 hours ago||No real practical application||
other than to help us understand the universe better.
|2 days 14 hours ago||I thought we already did that?||
So the SEC commissioner is concerned for the welfare of the MIchigan football players? Delaney should get all over him.
|2 days 17 hours ago||They are more alike||
than different. Both have a passion for the game and ultra competitive. Has anyone heard Saban's 10 minute description as to how cornor backs should play their posittion. Simply amazing.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Certainly will not be||
spring practice. I don't be he will be enrolled until this summer.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Why haven't the moderators removed this||
post? Didn't Brian indicate posts of this nature (start making cash) would lead to lost of posting privileges?
|5 days 20 hours ago||I believe we all would agree that||
JB isn't getting fired after this season. Short of him resigning (a long shot) we can expect him to be around for probably two more seasons. We can argue the merits of him staying or leaving but one thing we know is the MBB program is a mess. Is he the coach to fix it when he is the cause of the mess? Only his most ardent supporters would say yes.
This much I know. If an in state arch rival is laughing at my team while destroying us I would not be praising them in a post game press conference and never showing a hint of anger as to the performance of my team. Witnessing that told me all I needed to know about JB.
|6 days 14 hours ago||The press conference was surreal||
He was acknowledging that MSU and IU had better players and were much better. Not once did he display any anger over the lopsided losses. All he did was praise how good MSU is amd how they have been improving as the season progresses.
Being a nice guy isn't going to cut it in present day college athletics. For those who claim that the best programs cheat that is pure hogwash and a flimsy excuse of the lack of competency of our coaching staff.
JB for the good of the program should advise the new AD he would like to step down at the end of the season.
|6 days 17 hours ago||I am not sure it can be much worse||
His teams have not been competitive against good teams.
They look so bad that TV networks may stop televising them. What little high quality recruiting we have will suffer.
FWIW, didn't he replace several of his assistants a few years ago? Now we need to do that again and ignore the top man?
|1 week 2 days ago||Lost in all of this||
is one recruit is not going to move the needle toward a championship. That's what I love about college football. It is indeed a team game. So I wouln't fret over losing a recruit.
|1 week 2 days ago||Good coaches don't recruit in a vacumn||
They identify needs and seek the best player in that position. Sometimes they are not five star. The important consideration is are they coachable? A top tier coaching staff can make 3-4 star player play like they are five star.
|1 week 3 days ago||If Gary wanted to chose Michigan||
it would have done so already. The fact he is still uncertain points to Clemson. He is waiting to the last minute to announce is to make it appear it was a very difficult decision and pay respect to all the efforts that Michigan coaches have expended in recruiting him.
I hope I am wrong but I don't think so. This much I know. The program will do well with or without him.
|1 week 4 days ago||What's happening||
this afternoon? I thought Wednesday is the big day.
|1 week 6 days ago||Ricky or Robin?||
Does make a difference.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||At Alabama and Clemson he||
would be a football asset. Nothing more. At Michigan he will be a student who is an outstanding football player. This I believe he and his mother understand. He should visit these other schools because he needs to be fully committed to Michigan. Not wonder "what if".
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Exactly!||
Being offered by Michigan elevates the recruit in the eyes of all other colleges. If anything, it opens many more opportunities for the kids even though later the offer is "pulled".
The caveat in all of this is to make many of these recruits aware that the offer is revocable based on other recruiting activities.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||One thing I have learned||
from the Hoke experience. The star ratings are substantially compromised if the players are not coached well. Its an interesting exercise with that caveat.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||That is my concern.||
It is totally subjective. Example, is posting anything related to JH useless? Let's say I post he wears jockey shorts instead of briefs. Is that useless or is their an audience for it? How about if I posted that the Michigan Football Team does not like asparagus served for team dinners. Useless?
The best way to handle this is for the moderators to remove outliers they feel are not worthy of comment. The point obliteration is an extreme response to an issue easily handled by the blog. If a particular postor continues to post threads deemed useless he/she should get a warning and if no reponse then removal.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I thought a quality education||
was a priority for his mother and she has considerable input. O'Miss is not in the same league as Michigan when it comes to education.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||What concerns me is he used the word||
"significant" implying what Michigan is doing now needs to be changed. So what the present coaches have been doing is not good enough? I don't believe JH wants "a bull in a china store" to manage his defense. Some changes need to be made but overall the defense was pretty good.
Regading my comment about "less diciplined" I believe Brown wants players to risk being out of position to make plays.Offenses cannot game scheme against an unpredictable defenses. This is how offenses are pressured. Not knowing what to expect.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I suspect the defense will be less structured||
and less diciplined. Emphasis will be on storming the gates(blitzing) leaving the corners to fend for themselves. More of a high risk pressure defense as opposed to bend but not break approach. This will require speed and quickness which I am not as sure MIchigan has in on the defensive line and LB.
MY view is JH will have considerable input. I doubt he is willing to turn over the reins completely to Brown.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Beating teams that play spread offenses||
should have been the major criteria for the DC job at Michigan. OSU has scored over 40 points a game against us since Urban arrived in Columbus. I have read some of the articles on Brown and his philosophy. It is not clear to me whether his defensive schemes can defend a competently executed spread offense.
A super aggressive defense can be exposed by a good throwing spread QB. I hope Brown will have some answers.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||The reality is||
football as it is being played now is in trouble. With players being bigger, faster and trained to be hard hitting the incidents of injuries has reached alarming levels. Watching the NFL, it seems as though every 4-5 plays a player is injured. No amount of equipment advances will protect the players from the violent nature of the sport.
Concussions are only one of many injury issues plaguing the sport.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I just hope he knows how to defend||
the run option. OSU has scored over 40 points over the past three games against us. Indiana is beginning to run up the numbers against us as well. JH teams have had problems with this type of offense particularly with Oregon.
I am not sure what Brown's experience is against run option teams.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||No doubt JB and staff are||
have recruiting issues. I agree with you that as of today they are clueless as to how to fix the situation assuming it is fixable.
The good news is they play inferior opponents the next four games.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I am confident that JH has||
known Durkin will be gone. He probably has already made some inquires. I still believe he may dip into the NFL for a DC. Nothing like a highly regarding defense coach form the NFL to lure recruits. They all aspire to play in the NFL.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan was gashed||
by perimeter runs not up the middle run plays. Glasgow would have had little impact stopping those runs. Both Indiana and OSU exploited the outside run weakness using the option scheme.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||FWIW, recently Nick Saban||
complained about Alabama fans not be loud enough and leaving early. Maybe it is a millennial thing.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I wrote the MSU is better||
not decidely better. I also think OSU is better than MSU. Weather was a huge factor in the MSU win over OSU.
Regarding the defensive line, when you comparte the DL of OSU, MSU and PSU, they are better. Losing a NT should not cause the entire implosion of the defensive line. A quick tempo offensive with a running QB is something that Michigan cannot handle. It is what it is. Hope the bowl opponent uses a pro offensive.
