"BLONDES>BRUNETTES?: Since Michigan redshirt sophomore kicker Brendan Gibbons finished an impressive season (13-for-17 on field goals) by hitting a game-winning 37-yard field goal in overtime to defeat Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl, there’s been a lot of talk about brunettes.
After the game on Tuesday, Gibbons said that before the kick, he simply envisioned brunette girls and it helped him relax. He said it was a strategy that Hoke suggested to him.
On Thursday, Hoke gave his side of the story.
At the end of practice each Thursday, Hoke has Gibbons line up for a kick. Usually, Hoke calls a couple timeouts to ice the kicker.
The first time Gibbons lined up for the kick with Hoke at the helm, Hoke pulled him aside during the time out.
“What makes ya happy?” Hoke asked him.
“Well, I like the sand, the water and pretty girls.”
And, according to Hoke, “That’s the end of the story.”

Here, here. While so many are going through mental contortions to justify the actions of the university, forgotten are a campus full of women who count on administration to do the right thing and protect them.

What was that, again? I seemed to have missed your point the first 7-8 times.

Yeah, but you can do that and still coach college hockey.

You're correct--that's NEVER happened before.

Sure, the facts are just flying out of this case. I'd wait, too. A follow up will probably happen in 2020. You might want to have a snack handy...

It supposedly happened over 3 years ago. So, UM allowed this guy to stay on the team while it conducted a three year long investigation? Nice. I bet the victim feels comforted by the timely action.

Woah, pass that blunt buddy!

That's exactly it. Other teams don't need to say a word, either. Everything that needs to be said is screaming from the football field every Saturday.

Yes, it matters. Face it, football is a grown-up man's game. When a smaller guy makes a splash, they make a movie about him, he gets laid by hot Catholic chicks, and he never has to buy another beer.

The only reason Izzy had to sit was because it's a new rule that requires any contact- intentional or not, to be dealt with. Hitting Izzy with a game guarantee every D1 coach will take the rule book to bed with them tonight. Something tells me, too, Izzy won't be the last because the rule is vague.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Not so much, anymore.||
Not so much, anymore. There's too much pressure to win in college football--the whole athletic department counts on football to fund the crew team, etc, for the football to team to struggle.
If, for whatever reason, the Big House doesn't fill whoever is coach is gone.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Don't think it can't happen.||
Don't think it can't happen. It happened at ND, and every other major university. We've been lucky--so far. The Bo pipeline has dried up. We are in very, very dangerous territory right now. People should think twice about getting rid of RR. If it were that easy to just go out and get a winner, every big-time football school would never have a down cycle.

Loads of California hotties, too. A big time football player can never overlook the amount/qualitiy of trim on campus.

I AM so confused. Is the truth out there?
|3 years 26 weeks ago||If that's what he means, then||
If that's what he means, then he should STFU. RR is headcoach of the team--not HC of the offense. Ultimately, he's the man--for better or worse. If the defense has gotten so bad it can't be fixed, it was HIS job not to let it get that way. I don't care if the offense is rolling up 1,000 yards/game.

Probably the losing part. I don't care if we "pile" up 20 yards as long as we win.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||I honestly think we need to||
I honestly think we need to give RR one more year, at least. But, I'm tired of the "young team" monicker. Our football team is young, our basketball team in young, the cheerleaders are just out of diapers, and MSC just hit puberty.
Fuck it. It's about time we all put on our big boy pants and played like men.

Totally agree with jail for probation violation. But I won't throw stones at them. Every uni has issues. When you have 100 kids on a team, it's amazing it doesn't happen more often.
Let them worry about their own dooches--we have Iowa coming up.

Ha, ha. My first thought, too. "Damn, that's not that great a ride."
|3 years 27 weeks ago||One thing, too. MSU could||
One thing, too. MSU could have scored more points had they needed (or wanted). Their offensive stradgey is getting a lead and milking the clock in the fourth quarter.
Also, even if we score the first TD doesn't mean the second one will be there. It's a time continum sort of thing---watch Back to the Future, you'll get the idea.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||LOL!||

Boise State, grrr. Wished they played in the B10. Except that blue field would blind me the first full game I watched.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||The issue that bother me are||
The issue that bothers me is the 2nd half scoring trends. I'm not smart enough to blame anyone other than we're getting our asses kicked in the 2nd half. Is it conditioning? Don't know, but it needs to be addressed.

We already live in a universe where we lost three in a row to them, and our b-ball team sucks pond water.
Pray for a dimensional shift.

Well, MSU had somthing to do with it. Their LBs are pretty decent. Sure, we dropped some balls, but their LBs were pretty active throughout the whole game.

I'd hit it.

It's simple--he didn't want to give State the ball on the 30 and watch them run the damn thing in for another score. 41-17 must be MUCH worse in Rich World than 34-17. What. A bone-headed play...

Sir, your order of Thorazine is filled. Please pick it up at the pharmacy.

Why does it always seem like the perfect thing to do is fire the coach? Yeah, that will work well. Fire the coach, and the next guy takes 3-4 years to make things work, and the whole time the Spartans just keep rolling.
Fire the coach, and before you know it, kids in high school won't even remember when Michigan was a winner. Don't think it can happen? Wait until basketball season.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||No, but some people need||
No, but some people need something--anything--to cling to after a lose. Dantonio, hate to say it, was very classy yesterday. He was asked about the Hart comment, and all he said was "sometimes little brother grows up."
We should be more worried about our defense than Dantonio.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Rich Rod's offense was not||
Rich Rod's offense was not the issue. Our defense is awful. Michigan is known for tough, hard-hitting defenses. What we have is a patchwork of walk-ons, youth, and MAC level players. We call all say that the players who have left this team are lazy, canerous--whatever. The fact remains our defense is a shell of what made Michigan, Michigan.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Dantonia is in his fourth||
Dantonia is in his fourth year and took over for a total ass-bag. Rich Rod is in his third, and took over from a coach who had 11-2 and 9-3 his last two years. Color it how you want, but one coach is getting it done and another isn't.

I'm an English major, but the Vargas girls and the baby predator held my interest long enough to find the frickin' estimate. 6.9-7.6 sounds reasonable. Depending on who are loses are against, we could have a decent season or a slightly improved apocalyptic meltdown.

We're going to be fine. We're UM, and we're bigger than one player. It was a tough loss, but we'll pull together for wins.
