I can't get to the doc to answer questions, my work blocks all.
I like the whole coaching staff, but I am not all that impressed with Borges and his body of work. He seems like he is constantly tinkering but never ever getting a finished product. He has no consistency, he does not seem to be developiing the QB's. I just can't feel much excitement when from week to week, year to year, we have no idea what the offense will do or look like.

I don't know, I really think it may be some of both, but at the same time the 3rd year is usually all most coaches get to prove their mettle at a new school. So far we got bumpkiss on offense.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||At this point I can't say I||
At this point I can't say I am a fan of Borges, there is zero consistency from game to game. There is no identity for the offense, there hasen't been for 3 years. The only thing that these offense's can point to is the QB, this is Denard's offense or Devin's offense...nothing else. Michigan used to have plenty of RB's and FB's where have they all gone. Why can anyone who can't block be called a tight end? It is a misnomer.
I like Hoke, I like Mattison, but I am just not on board with Borges...I don't think I ever was...I don't look at his record at other schools and think to myself "this guy knows what he is doing"...I don't see his upside. Nice guy, but he isn't coaching this offense worth a dang.

I have many family memebers that are MSU fans and many that are UM fans, I never disrespected them or the school, growing up I happily rooted for MSU as long as it wasn't vs Michigan. I really didn't enjoy Mike Harts comment a few years ago, and I can't say as I enjoy what the current MSU coaches have done to the rivialry either. It has become far more bitter/ugly than it ever was as I grew up. I actively look forward to Dantonio and Narduzzi going to some other college. They have made this rivialry into something far less friendly. I am not very happy with the ongoing meme of the little brother either, it is dumb.

Bullies are trying to impose thier reality onto others.

|6 weeks 3 days ago||You presented a very good||
You presented a very good explanation of why/how societies use swear words. What I really think is that as you have suggested is that instead of used for emphasis too many use them very casually in everyday language. This was not their purpose so to those people they have lost that purpose. I would suggest someone who swears in every sentance take a step back and see how many times they actually swear in a day...is it necessary? i.e. did the conversation require that aggressive language?
I would also suggest that this trend to everyday usage is someone regional to some extant. I have traveled around a bit and to be honest, the northeast/East Coast is probably the most "sweary" place I have been around. I honestly think you could be identified as an out of towner if you are not droping F-bombs in every sentance.
I get that some may just be used to swearing but they should be aware that not everyone does it or likes it. The words are offensive as they were intended to be.

This is exactly it, I went to one game last year (Air Force) and the first in many years, my kids heard quite an earful.
I have always had the opposite issue than some of the above posters that is why do so many find it necessary that out of the whole English language, they must use 5 or 6 swear words repetitiously in every single sentence? If you are a college student and can't find adequate words to use in sentences other than swear words, I think you are limiting your vocabulary.

Indiana, actually ran quite a bit on PSU, maybe this happened as it was a change up that they didn't expect <shrugs>. If Michigan can win the turnover battle we can win this game.

Wow, I am shocked that they would be playing songs with lyrics like that...called me out of touch or what not but I won't be heading back to the stadium if that continues.

from the latter site, perhaps it would be a modern sonnet...but I still don't think so. I think EGD has this correct in that it feels like a version of 'Twas the Night before Christmas'.

This is also the call most easily made, ISU doesn't have its own TV network and doesn't own the league, Texas does. That call will default to Texas every time, if it hadn't, I think a few refs would have lost a job.

I have tried here to write a sonnet, I don't think it is perfect but it is closer to what should be to what the OP intended. I used Shakespeare's sonnet #1 as a guide.
From ferocious creatures we desire victory,
That thereby our water might never be unclean,
We have done naught but continue history,
The joust tis won, the Jug shall not sally forth:
But thou, cruel judges of football prowess,
Grow’st strong upon the hatred of Borges,
Mountains from molehills with claims so bogus,
Anger you sow, but friendship would be gorgeous.
Thy defense has bent but not been broken,
Yielding yardage but not many touchdowns,
Mattison hath put in many o freshmen,
And, vocal critics, mak’st waste in scrutiny.
Love this team, or else this arrogance be,
Having the vict’ries won, vile creatures claim doom.

Drove up to Pasedena from where I was stationed by myself as I could find no one else to come with me. Parked not too far from the stadium and walked around, as I got closer I started to look for a ticket. I was there about 10 mins when some guy just gives me one, says his friend isn't coming. I was thinking this was great. I ran back to my car and put on all my michigan gear (I hadn't worn it thinking scalpers would ask more if I was wearing it then). I went into the stadium and took up my seat. Turns out I was in the UCLA alumni section...ok so I was getting some instant harrasment. One old guy in front of me talked the whole game, UCLA was winning thru 3 quarters but in the 4th Michigan got 2TD's, recovered and onside kick and then a FG to win the game as time ran out...It was awesome.

I don't really think Miller looked that bad, the 4 turnovers hurt Michigan bad. They gave UC 14pts. If they can eliminate the dumb poor ball handling mistakes, that game would look a lot better. Gardner needs to hold onto the ball and not lock on to Gallon every single time. When that option is poor he either seemed to force the throw or try and run, regardless of what his other receiving options were.

Thank you Don. This is so true. We all acknowledged the lack of experience in the interior OL at the beginning of the season but after we beat ND, everyone seemed to assume those guys were golden.

|11 weeks 5 days ago||yes, Always (or nearly so)||
yes, Always (or nearly so) root for the B10 teams to win in the non-conference portion of the schedule. This is one clear way to have the B10 look better in football, so far this season has been a series of disappointments for the B10 as a whole, this doesn't help the SOS or long term outlook for the conference.

I can't say as I am happy for Mr. Feely...I would love to see the Lions have a couple of winning seasons...only it never happens...guys regularly seem to have their best games against Detroit...<sigh> they are the Charlie Brown of the NFL.
Not that I am mad at Mr. Feely, just wishing he hadn't done so well this past week. He can boot the heck out of it any other week and I would be happy.

I miss and oldy, when Bob Ufer was in the press box doing a game, he would honk an old horn when ever Michigan scored. 3 times for a TD, 2 for a FG, and 1 for an extra point. It claimed it was from General Pattons jeep in WWII. I do remember hiim having trouble getting one and a half honks out for a safety one time.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Ok, I am not all that||
Ok, I am not all that technical in the football sense, but after reading this I will sum up what I took from it.
Akron saw what ND did, they choose to actually do something completely different while Michigan seems to have assumed Akron LB's would do the same as ND's did.
Ok, that is a bit of gamesmanship there but my question is why didn't we adjust better at halftime? Borges sits up in the press box and looks down, is he not seeing what they are doing? I don't know enough to second guess game plans but I will say I think Michigan got out coached last week and it hurt us. However, the coaches at Akron are not slouches.

I think the fifth factor in this game that you didn't account for is that Cheaty McSweater Vest (Jim Tressel) is now at Akron. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Bowden reached out to him for tips on how to beat Michigan since he pretty much owned us.

1981 again against Illinois, the head coach (White) was not popular as he ran the score up on others when he could. Bo punished him a couple of times for doing so.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Risk has two components that||
Risk has two components that come into play. How damaging and event is (in this case the fear/paranoia level) and graph that against the likelyhood of it occuring (as you said). While a failure against Akron would be horrible, the chance of it actually happening is unlikely. So your risk is actually low.
Re-examining the OP's stuff I would say that the "Desperate need to win level" represents the potential damage, it is at 10. The "Fear/Paranoia level" is actually the likelyhood of this happening, which I would say should be a non-zero number. So I will adjust it to a 0.5.
Multipling the two together gives us a Risk of 5 on a scale of 100.

I think you pretty much summed up what I had been thinking about BK and a few other coaches you see out there. No need to yell, when an obvious error was made. If Gardner didn't realize that his Int was a bad play and he should have just taken the sack, it really means you and your assistants haven't been doing your jobs.

I agree with this. He was a very good possession type of player, he seemed to do a great job of finding the open areas in zones and coming back to the QB when the play starts to break down. I thought he was very good, I do hope his possession totals go up this years.

I think you are right, but I aprreciate that DonAZ is trying to think up a way to better statistically represent a good punt or bad. Punting is very situational and has many variables, perhaps this is why a simple measure of distance is valid. It may not take into account all things but it is easy enough to calculate and to understand.

I went to my first game in 24yrs last year, my kids were old enough that I wasn't too worried (9 and 10 at the time). Went to the Air Force game and actually sat in the visitor section. Kids and I had a great time and most of the AF people were cool. I was never really willing to brave taking my kids to such a big event as that when they were that young. Patience is the key as you may end up not seeing as much of the game as you want. I did do some local stuff with kids but if they were tired I could get up and leave. It would be hard to leave a football game in the middle (or at least disappointing).
Good luck to you sir.

It is a new low...but honestly it is only making obvious what most of us thought already thought.
They are not in the business of caring about the athelets, only about getting some wins. No thought about how they might live the rest of their lives or that while yes some will make good money, how many kids that go there actually never play in the NFL.
Saban is simply being a bold realist, his school does not offer great academics and even if they might in some areas, the kids he wants on the team, don't care. Why should he.
