|2 days 14 hours ago||Hey hey hey||
We're having ourselves a posbang party!!!!
What a well played, efficient pressure game we played, dominated from the start, ala the Florida game in the elite 8 last year. I'm looking forward to some more fun times in the tourney!!!
|3 days 21 hours ago||If the shoulders were also whit||
they might look cool, but that shaded in shoulder thing makes it look cheesy, plus the helmet, yeah, too much.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Impressive win||
when you consider that Minny really needed the win, we came ready to play and focused, very impressed, I love this team, GO BLUE, HAIL!!!!
|6 days 14 hours ago||As was stated above by many||
If it's 40 "minor" violations than the word minor shouldn't apply, it's a big joke.
We get sited for over-practicing and other schools are running rampant with a slap on the wrist.
NCAA is a big fat joke!
|1 week 4 days ago||It was a great day to be a Canadian!||
Nik playing the way he did was so huge and awesome, we needed that.
Levert played great too and the rest of the guys brought their A game too, Go Blue!!!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe with us losing||
Sparty will play an uninspired game as well, crossing my fingers.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||I hear ya and I understand where you're coming from||
However, Horford only RS'd because of injury and Morgan had a lot of developing to do when he came in, Donnal was a much more polished player coming in.
Also, don't forget that our program is in much better shape now and recruiting is way stronger than it was when Morgan RS'd.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Yeah, you're probably correct on that||
I was wondering if Coach B might have thought about it when Mitch had to have back surgery
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||let me guess||
autocorrect? I hate autcorrect, don't you, it's usually a pain in the arse.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Haha wiseguy||
I understand where you're coming from, hey, I'm a huge Beilein fan, he's an awesome coach and a class guy.
I'm just saying that in college ball, red-shirting guys isn't all that big of an advantage, go ahead and play guys that are good enough to play and get some experience. Who knows who's coming back or not next year and see what you have in a guy now, that's all I'm saying.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||I still think||
we should have played him this year, red-shirting guys in college is a waste IMHO, just go ahead and play them, we coulda used another big who could be getting experience, can shoot from outside, apparently has good hop for a white guy (whatever that means).
We are recruiting well enough now to play guys, with Mitch getting injured, Donnal might have helped big time.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||At 6'9"||
he's supposed to be a good outside shooter, can't wait to see this kid play, the future is bright for the BBall Program!
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Well I certainly||
hope we win more than 9 games, that being said, I like the comments about us being more efficient on offense by rushing for more yards, getting 1st downs and hopefully having a lockdown defense, kinda like MSU has been recently and what we used ti be like, works for me.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Well||
that just makes the looks on their fans faces that much more enjoyable to see while we were obviously about to beat them in their house, fun time.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I won't mind at all||
when Damien re-commits and we all get confused by which D. Harris has the ball.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||plus one for you||
and you and you and you and also you and many more.....
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I'm here for the posbang bash||
Beat ohio, sparty and bucky all on the road sans McGary, hell yeah!!!
What a quality win against a team that was getting hot and really needing a win!
|5 weeks 10 hours ago||Quite frankly this was a great win||
Purdue always gives us a hard time and we're coming off a tough stretch to boot.
Levert and Walton keep getting better, Nik is, well....Nik, Morgan/Horford keep playing at a very dependable level.
GRIII needs to get back to playing the way he was before these last 2 games, I have faith in him, he steps up a lot when we need him to.
The coaches are top notch, we're in good hands, if we can go a minimum 6-4 before the BTT and end up going at least 22-8 after the regular season, I would have to imagine that would put us as the 1st or 2nd seed, great position to be in.
Just think how good we would be had McGary been playing all along and healthy.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Wow, 400+ comments and counting||
I hesitated whether to comment on this or not, obviously I have decided to do so. I'm not sure if this has been mentioned or not, I didn't have the time to read all the comments.
First and foremost, rape is a dispicable crime that violates a person (usually a woman) in so many ways, not to mention how they think and feel for the rest of their lives.
I'm not here to judge or declare who is guilty or who is a victim, however there seems to be a lot of smoke here and if this did indeed happen, I am sickened by this and I just wonder from a team standpoint if this hurt the leadership of the squad, since Lewan was a Captain and Gibbons was a 5th year sr., it's possible the younger players just weren't inspired by those two guys and it ended up hurting the team internally. maybe we shouldn't be surprised by the results of the season, who knows?
Maybe those two should have been reprimanded, if it did happen, Gibbons should have been expelled way sooner, like 3 years ago, and Lewan should have been suspended for however long with a chance to earn his way back on the team for his role in the matter.
However this turns out, I hope the university does what is proper and not embarrassing to the school. A persons life and how they may be violently affected is more important than football.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Hey DC||
How you doin' man, we need to get together again, hope you and the mrs. are well!
As for the 3 departees, good luck fellas, hope you do well in your future endeavors, thanks for your time in AA.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||many||
there are many
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Very cool||
but apologize to your dog for me man. Yeah, that guy got neg'd to hell himself.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I find this to be a||
tremendous idea, yes let's!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Hey, where is that asshole who posts as Drew Sharp||
eat a bag of dicks you douche!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Awesome, another posbang party thread!!!||
rec's for everyone who isn't a troll!!!
Go Blue, sweep style, beat them in BBall tmrw boys!!!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||ugh||
now we have to root for ohio
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Sparty gonna Spart||
we can't beat 'em, so we'll try and fight them.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||You know what's great about this game||
besides the win itself of course? The tremendous posbang thread coming!!!
Go Blue, keep beating State at everything, including BBall tmrw!!!
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||Me too, rooting for Fed||
and wouldn't mind seeing Stan the man win either. Never have been a fan of Rafa for some reason, although you have to give him credit for his play the past year or so.
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||I'm here for the posbang party||
I +1ed everybody, posbang a gong, get it on!
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||Woo fucking hoo||
woot woot, hold on to the lead boys!
|6 weeks 17 hours ago||One can also surmise that||
an urbanite is quite superb, unless you take out the ite, than he is a phony.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||game||
over, FT's clinched it
|6 weeks 2 days ago||buckeyes are 2-4 in conf||
what a beautiful thing that is.
Our wins in Minny and Nebby look better and better every game
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Hey Tom Crean||
anyone ever tell you that you walk like your asshole is on fire
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I hate Indiana BBall so much||
I'd also prefer us to beat MSU and give them their first conf loss
|6 weeks 2 days ago||oops, my bad||
thanks for the correction
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Texas 67 Kansas 64||
that is a final now
|6 weeks 2 days ago||well they are playing w/o Payne||
but I agree they are beatable and if we play well on Saturday, we can definitely win.
1st things 1st though, we need to beat a formidable Iowa squad.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||man, that was||
a quick jump ball call
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Tom Crean||
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Quite frankly||
the more B1G games I watch this year, the better I feel about U-M's team going forward, I think we're one of the top 4 teams in the league.
Can you imagine if we had a healthy McGary available?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||The forward pass was introduced pretty early||
like 70 yrs ago, kicking extra points is not comparable to passing the ball, but they should not mess with it still.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Are you kidding me?||
Please leave the integrity of the game alone. It works just fine, maybe, maybe move it back to the 5 yd line on a 2 pt conv.
And I wouldn't mind if they put the ball at the 20 for a 3 pt conv to make comebacks more possible and exciting.
But please leave the ex pt alone.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Successfulness?||
really? ok, I think "success" would suffice, just sayin'.
Anyway, from the early 60's till the SUV flipped over, we were a perennial top 20/25 program, if not top 10. We had some lean years, not as bad as some make it out to be, we just got snubbed by the NCAA, particularly under Amaker, during 18-10 or 19-11 type seasons.
We are back and things have improved and will continue to improve, Beilein has us on the right track, look at this team this year, playing great ball despite the loss of key players from last year.
Beilein is doing a good job of recruiting guys that may leave within 2 years and guys that develop a bit longer, I believe that it's better to do that than going after top end guys only and having to turn over the squad every year.
While recruiting guys like Trey, GRIII and Mitch, you have guys like Morgan, Horford, Spike, Nik, etc., who will be there 3 or 4 yrs. plus. That helps a program stay strong for the long run, look at Izzo, his guys usually stay there a few years, he has had very few one and done guys and he seems to be doing just fine.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||@ X98||
Dude, learn some grammar please, not only was that an awful post to read but your take was not only stupid, it's just plain wrong.
Joe D. probably still has an ax to grind against U-M because his pedestrian player of a son Jordan never really had any playing time when he was in AA, just speculation on my part.
But make no mistake about it, passing on Burke will come back to haunt the Pistons for a long time, I really feel like he will be a similar player to Chris Paul, I said this during his freshman year. Jennings at PG for the Pistons is meh, he has nights where he does pretty good, but he is so damn inconsistent, whereas Burke looks like he's gonna be a stud.
Thanks Joe D., for continuing to be an awful GM for going on almost a decade now.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Welcome Kyle||
good luck in your career.I like how high his punts go, good hang time.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I was always a||
Maryann and Jaclyn guy, although when Cheryl Ladd took over for Farrah, I liked her a lot too.
The 70's was a great era, IMO the greatest decade of music ever, all the great rock bands who started in the 60's were in their primes in the 70's besides the ones that started in the 70's and R&B and Jazz and Funk had it goin' on too.
I liked some disco too, it was an interesting era, who doesn't love to dance baby dance!
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Hallelujah||
So damn happy to have this move be made. I just hope we bring in a solid OC who doesn't mind having a QB coach, gotta have a QB coach IMO.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I;m so friggin' happy now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!||
He just was not developing our QB's the way I thought he should.
Mr. Hoke, please hire someone competent and also bring in a QB coach, yay!!!
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I gotta believe||
he'll be able to get back on the floor this season, am I being too hopeful? I hope we get some info soon from the folks that know.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Mommy, Mommy||
why is the sky blue? Reflections and shit, that's why
Who knows why, every circumstance is different, sometimes a coach loses 4 or 5 games in 1st year and then has a stellar year the next, Tressel and Saban for example, sometimes the opposite happens, the roster has something to do with it I'm guessing.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||nice pick up for OU||
Mixon looks good
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Didn't even have an M hat up on the table||
at least he wasn't trolling us.
Also, since the East is getting their arses kicked, maybe they're not that talented on that side.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Lattimore to Urbz||
big fucking surprise
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Would love nothing more||
than to beat ND in the final game between us, in who knows how long, especially on their turf and their cute little network, fuck ND
|8 weeks 6 days ago||You know what I love?||
When ohio st buckaroos lose....
Also, the buckaroos are Clemsons bitch in bowl games, BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I'm happy||
are you guys happy?
|9 weeks 13 hours ago||Good win||
much needed indeed, great to start off the B1G season with a road win. Hope Glenn is okay and not too injured or hurt. Horford played a great game today.
Why was Mitch on the sidelines, when is his surgery?
|9 weeks 14 hours ago||unbelievable||
bad call again, refs, SMH
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||why does our BBall team||
always gets hosed by the refs?
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||Is this a reply fail to me||
cause it doesn't make sense as a response to me
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||Refs need to call the fouls on that Mathieu kid||
he rides the dribbler constantly while bumping into him.
|9 weeks 16 hours ago||Walton plays||
way too eratic, hope he settles down soon
|9 weeks 1 day ago||MSU has been so impressive today and this season||
I'm so freaking jealous of how they play.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Good luck to him wherever he goes||
kid has got to do what's best for him, if he somehow commits to Mich, I will welcome him with open arms, if not, on to the next guy and so on.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I am so damn jealous||
of Wisc running game and blocking, I really hope we get there soon, man ball works, it just needs good coaching, the jury is still out on our staff, IMHO.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||From an MSU source that I have||
It seems that Bullough had a problem with pain killers, there's a good chance that is maybe the issue.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||I thought this one was funny and hit the nail on the head||
"I am coming back from the future to write this review, and to let everyone know you can buy this TV for $699 in 2015. It still looks great though."
Exactly, just wait a little while and prices come crashing down.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||You mean to his left in the picture, just messin' with ya||
But yeah, man, Orr was the coach when I fell in love with U-M sports, Football and BBall especially. I loved his teams, we were exciting and quick, well coached and only a juggarnaut program from Indiana kept us from winning it all. I missed him when he left, Frieder always seemed whiny to me and didn't command the respect he should have gotten as an M coach.
We didn't go to the NCAA's because Hubbard got hurt and then went to the pros and was replaced with guys like Paul Huermann, et al. It wasn't till Frieder really kickstarted his recruiting and we started getting guys like McCormick and Joubert that we became a mainstay in the tourney again after a tough 3 or 4 years.
I remember going to the Silverdome and we upset ND, what a game, I remember hearing Blondie for the first time on the way to the game too, ah the younger days....
RIP Johnny, you'll be missed
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Now that the B1G is part of the Holiday Bowl||
This is a game we could be watching U-M play in during a 9-3 or 10-2 type season
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Officials suck balls in football at every level||
It's gotten worse year by year.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||TTU is so stupid||
you have a fucking 2 TD lead and you're hiking the ball with 15-20 seconds left on the play clock in the 4th QT, I hate this kind of football so much, it's a joke....I can understand earlier in the game to screw with the defense, but not now, gimmick BS
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Matador Mattison and his defense suck ass||
when Greg was DC in mid '90's, I hated how our D was bend but don't break and then ND stole him from us and Herrmann had us play aggressive in '97, at least that year, I miss that. I want aggressive D back, not this shit we're getting.
Also, Borges, you suck, playcalling is so incoherent, Shane looked good and deserved a better game plan.
Hoke, you are clueless and too nonchalant and I hate your elusive responses, you suck buddy.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||sooooo, Kenpom||
was right on again, hmm.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||We finally overcome the refs||
and win, whew, good win sans Mitch!!!
|10 weeks 5 days ago||fuck you refs||
call it even you assholes, GRIII was fouled on the drive and they call the ticky tack BS on us the other way
|10 weeks 5 days ago||godamnit Caris||
come on man
|10 weeks 5 days ago||please make your FT's||
|10 weeks 5 days ago||who put Borges in charge||
of our down the stretch offense?
|10 weeks 5 days ago||come on boys||
hold onto the lead please
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Stanford||
hasn't missed a damn FT it seems like
|10 weeks 5 days ago||How many minutes of play||
did it take Horford to foul out? SMH
|10 weeks 5 days ago||we better get going offensively here||
no time to start sucking now
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Our Bowl Game||
will just have started a week from now
|10 weeks 5 days ago||We need to stay focused||
and take good shots and maintain this lead.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Stanford bigs||
are getting away with a lot of crap, camping out in the lane, elbowing, backing into our bigs, ridiculous BS
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Morgan||
just cost Spike an assist, lmao with that guy, good thing he made the rebound shot
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Nik||
starting to hit his FT's like he should be, good thing
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Wings||
finally win a shootout, yay!!!!
|10 weeks 5 days ago||good to see||
Walton playing a bit better tonight
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah I do||
He can shoot well from outside and getting him playing time experience will help next year tremendously when we'll really need him with Mitch (most likely) and Jordan gone
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Nobody||
underneath for us on the GRIII trey attempt, rebound boys, rebound
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I guess if you're Stanford||
you can use your elbow to clear off a defender
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Hi everybody, some thoughts:||
-Sucks to not have Mitch playing, we'd win handily if he was, still think we'll win anyway.
-I wonder who Jim Harbaugh is rooting for?
-Refs still suck
-Morgan still has stone hands but is playing decent today.
-I wish JB would have started playing Donnal, I think it's a waste to redshirt guys in BBall, we'll need him down the road I bet.
-One week from right now, we'll still be waiting for U-M football game to start.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I guess I could drive to Tempe from here||
but fuck that, I'd rather watch from the comforts of my recliner. I went to the '94 Holiday Bowl vs. Colo. St. and the '98 Rose Bowl, both wins, now that the B1G is affiliated with the Holiday Bowl again, I can wait to see U-M after a 9-3 or 10-2 type season here or a more successful season in the Rose Bowl if not in the 4 team playoff any particular year.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Good luck to PW||
I'm glad we got Peppers and Watson, both are 6'1" and great athletes, wouldn't mind getting a safety to add to the class however, maybe E.Smith and Malik to round out this fine incoming class.
|11 weeks 12 hours ago||Harbaugh met his wife||
in a bar called "The Old Ox" in PB where I lived for 20 years, she's from San Diego, not SF.
The only place Harbaugh would leave SF for is here in San Diego in the future if he feels like it and McCoy (the Chargers HC) moves on, but he's a damn good coach and will be here a while.
Harbaugh will be in SF for a long time, don't kid yourselves, they're moving into a new stadium and that franchise is back for it's second round of glory days like the 80's and 90's.
|11 weeks 12 hours ago||Cool, thanks for the info||
I feel better about that now, still a nice get for MSU, they're not gonna go away anytime soon, with a hopefully improved U-M program moving forward with OSU and MSU and PSU (when they get back to their usual status), it's gonna be a tough division to win year in and year out.
|11 weeks 17 hours ago||Too bad we stopped recruiting him||
I have a feeling he'll get coached up pretty well in EL. Waiting for Hand and McDowell might come back to bite us in the arse, I hope not though.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I miss Trey too||
I miss more the fact that the stupid Pistons passed up on him, Pope is good, but Trey is the next Chris Paul, ugh!
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I wouldn't mind||
seeing Caris at the point and have Nic at the 2 while GRIII & Irvin play forward with McGary or Horford at C. We could play a mean zone defense ala Syracuse with length like that.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I like the idea||
pumped up crowds are good for the team and recruiting and exposure, so yes, every year would be cool, it's the 21st century, not 1976.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||A real game is more fun for the fans||
that's why, give something back to the fans, give us some football in april. I miss that we haven't done that in a while, I'd like to think we do finally have enough players, esp with so many incoming guys too.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||I'll tell you where the refs pissed me off||
the lack of traveling calls on AZ and some iffy 3 second violations that should have been called as well.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Tough loss||
to a great team. However, I would like to see Walton play less, give more minutes to Spike and have Caris play the point more when needed. Walton just needs to be brought along more slowly, his play really hurt us, when he was in the game I feel like his +/- was in the negative in a big way, I wonder if someone can confirm that.
We will get better, just sucks to lose.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||This is a great point you make||
we as a collective need to stay on the lookout for douchery, in whatever form. It's like I always like to say, being nice should come easy, being an asshole takes effort and generally indicates an unhappy person, easy choice really.
Thanks Brian, I'm really glad you worked hard to get this accomplished, I really appreciate all the work you and the staff does, we are truly lucky to have you guys, keep up the great work!!!
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I feel bad for Mack Brown||
he's a class act and was always respectful to people, sad age we live in. I understand Texas has struggled the past few years, but he did a lot for that school and won a lot of games, some big games at that.
Additionally, if Saban did take that job, would De'shawn really de-commit and give us a chance to get him or does he follow Saban to Texas, who knows.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||WTF?||
I'm getting really tired of a bunch of you guys, cut it the fuck out with your poor little me whining attitudes.
We are Michigan damnit, we will be getting better, Peppers will be coming here, he's got a great head on his shoulders, he realizes that a Michigan degree is >>>>>>>>>>>> than a Bama degree. I don't care if the NFL playing days are affected or not.
NFL careers can be pretty short, the rest of your life isn't, the connections of having an M degree will matter at that point, so quit feeling sorry for yourselves, quit posting asinine crap and buck the fuck up!!!
Hey Jabril, I look forward to rooting for you in an M jersey, winged helmet and Go Blue!!!
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I was always impressed by the job||
Martin did at GVSU, I think if our staff continues to struggle (the jury is still out) then we should consider him at U-M in a couple of years if he improves Miami O to respectability, his resume' would be even more impressive.
I certainly hope though, that we will never need him cause Hoke finally got things going consistently in AA.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||OT||
Ark leading LSU 17-14 at the half in Baton Rouge, that's why you never know, I think if we came to play tmrw with great effort and a good plan, that point spread will be made to look ridiculous, which I already think it is anyway.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Just love the way||
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Like the way||
we have come out to start the 2nd half, keep the pressure on boys
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Good half||
of basketball, Irvin shooting better, too bad we lost to Charlotte, should have beaten them.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
Walton can be really eratic at times and doesn't recognize on breaks as well as he should and needs to finish better.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Irvin sure likes||
to jack up a bunch of shots
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Early season observations||
- Jordan Morgan is still so clumsy
-Walton needs to play smarter and have better recognition on the breaks
-I think we need to play Donnal, the hell with red shirting, why do that in BBall anymore, we need a big who can score and we might as well play him and get some experience for next year when we will really need him
-Please get healthy Nik, please
|14 weeks 12 hours ago||You know what||
I hope the team shuts up all you guys predicting a blowout, fuck that, I think the team will play their hearts out and show everybody up!!!
|14 weeks 13 hours ago||I think Morris||
is a better pro-style QB, just maybe we would be better with him, maybe, I wouldn't know, since the game means nothing to us from a championship standpoint, why not find out.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Nothing personal directed at you||
but boo fucking who....U-M needs guys that don't give a shit about that and have an attitude of getting after it. Not fearful guys of what the offense might or might not do. Worry about your own side of the ball, if a recruit has a fearful attitude, take that crap elsewhere, I don't want to root for guys like that anyway.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||This is why we shouldn't||
put our eggs in one basket, go after all the guys that the staff finds intriguing and take the commitments as they come.
Fuck the guys that tease you and leave you dangling and all bummed out, Hand did what was best for him, well we need to do the same damn thing.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||In 2010 at SDSU||
Borges was the OC of a team that had a QB throw for over 3,500 yds, a RB who had 1,500 yds and not one but two WR's who had 1,000 yds receiving. These were guys recruited by Chuck Long, except for the RB, who was a redshirt freshman.
That's why I just don't get it, that QB, Ryan Lindell, was able to read defenses well, maybe that is one of the huge problems. In 1998, Borges was the OC at UCLA and helped improve Cade Mcnown into being an awesome QB that year and he sucked in the NFL with NFL coaching.
In 2004 at Auburn, Borges was the OC for a team that went undefeated, had a quality QB who has done pretty decent in the NFl and not one, but two RB's who had 1,000+ yds rushing and both were 1st rd. picks.
The reason I mention these things that many people on here are already aware of, is he showed he was able to coach talented guys and coached them well, why are we not succeeding now with him? This is a mystifying question for me, is it the players? The QB? What?
|14 weeks 3 days ago||I've never been as apathetic||
about The Game as I am now, with RR, I knew we would get smoked and he wasn't going to be around for much longer, but with Hoke, knowing he will be here at least another year or more, unless we become a contender again, it's just so depressing.
I've been a fan for 40 some odd years and I just don't like what I see or what I'm hearing from him, he seems clueless to me, I'm sorry, he just seems lost and his act is getting old quick. I just hope Brandon injects some influence behind the scenes, cause this crap just can't continue.
One more thing, I hope they give Morris an honest shot of starting next year, I appreciate Gardner's desire and dedication to the program, I just don't see him being a QB who can read a defense or dump the ball when he has to, among other things he does that are immensily dumb.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||This sounds almost too good to be true||
I bet Herbstreit is behind this again?
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Look||
I appreciate Devin's dedication to the program, but he has hurt us way too much this year.
It's not all his fault, Borges, lack of a QB coach, O-Line, etc., but he is not good at reading defenses, holds the ball too long, doesn't use good judgement in the pocket on when to run, has made a myriad of mental mistakes.
I just hope Morris gets a fair shot at the QB job, I want Hoke to keep his promise of giving young guys a fair shot of starting or playing more. I'm sorry but Gardner has been a huge issue for us this year.
Get mad at me all you want, what we're seeing on the field tells the story. I will say that Funchess had a really bad game today and that hurt a lot.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||I wish it was true||
and would happen, unfortunately, I don't believe it will, we're stuck with this coaching staff for now. How long will it take to change Brandon's mind, who knows?
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Ok guys, don't know how many are noticing this||
Charlotte, which used to be UNCC, North Carolina Charlotte, upset us in the 1977 NCAA Elite Eight, had we won that game, I think that would have been our first championship.
We need to exact revenge in a cruel way 36+ years later, I'm still angry about that loss, let's do this!!!
|14 weeks 6 days ago||wow, we won||
need to hit our FT's way better than that, still won despite that
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Coach B||
please put in our best FT shooters
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I like our momentum||
going into OT, I hope we keep up the hustle
|14 weeks 6 days ago||OMG||
please make a 3 to win the game
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Please make||
your FT's Glenn
|14 weeks 6 days ago||finally||
called a travel on them
|14 weeks 6 days ago||When Kenpom had us at -3||
they didn't take into account that we were playing against both FSU and the refs.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||mother fucking||
refs can kiss my ass, fucking assholes
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Levert||
playing awful right now
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I just don't understand||
these refs, that earlier sequence was fucking BS and Mitch gets bloodied and the foul is on GRIII? say what?
|14 weeks 6 days ago||GRIII||
was really lazy on defense there again
|14 weeks 6 days ago||that tall gangly||
ass dude of theirs is getting away with a lot of shit, like traveling, moving picks, flailing arms, etc., just bull shit
|14 weeks 6 days ago||let's cut||
into their lead more, D up boys
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Another thing that the refs are not calling||
is the moving picks by their bigs, just horrendous
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Comment # 1800 for me||
Ray Liotta would be proud, I need some 1800 right now after watching these refs let FSU flail their arms all over the place with no calls
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Take Walton||
out of the game please
|14 weeks 6 days ago||these refs||
|15 weeks 5 hours ago||Maybe this will help||
I've been to DF and there is an area called Zona Rosa that is a hip area with many Cantinas. While I was there in '97 for a business trip, I was able to watch M beat ND 21-14 in some bar down in that district, go there and find a sports type cantina and the game might be on, good luck.
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||Watching the FSU/VCU game||
and I think FSU would pose a bigger challenge for us, although I think we'd beat them. I'm rooting for VCU, I think we would beat them by double digits again.
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||Good Synopsis Ace||
I was also concerned with the lack of boxing out and Walton needs to play smarter, he's a frosh so he has some leeway right now, but he definitely needs to be better by the time conference games start.
Irvin looks like he will be a good contributor too, I'm loving Nik and Caris' games, it looks like they will be the leading scorers on the team with Mitch & GRIII right behind them. Glenn still has some work to do offensively, it's almost as if he's not sure what to do with the ball when he gets it, I hope he is more aggressive this year, otherwise I really think another year of college wouldn't hurt him.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||John Harbaugh||
coaching Michigan would be so awesome, talk about having veritas on the sidelines, yes please. Sorry Brady, I'd like to give you more time unless we can get John harbaugh, we would be able to stay in the direction we're going and Mattison can stay.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I wouldn't mind||
an all Maize Jersey and pants with Blue lettering, I think that would look so cool with our helmets, pretty badass. I don't like what's pictured what so ever.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I appreciate Fitz dedication to the program||
but I think it's obvious to most observers that Green and Smith are better options. Sometimes the RB's can make the O-Line look better too, this game proved that, I loved the way both backs hit the hole and didn't hesitate while running downhill.
I hope we also go with a type of offense that Devin can excel better in, like in OT, man ball can wait just a bit longer, I want to win games.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I hope||
that stating Fitz starting is a "we'll see" situation, is just coach speak and that he saw with his own eyes that the 2 frosh RB's are better than Fitz.
They ran harder and hit the hole quicker, they certainly weren't any worse at blocking, pretty hard to be worse to begin with. Please play the 2 frosh so that they don't even think about transferring and more importantly, getting some experience for next year.
Look, I appreciate seniors and what they've done and been through, but the better players need to play, it's a very simple concept. Hoke needs to decide, are we going to coddle players or try to win while still treating players fairly.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Observations||
- We need to shoot better and get McGary in the rotation more when he gets more stamina going.
-Walton and Irvin looked a bit shaky, they're freshmen, they'll get better
- At the end of the game, we did a bad job of trying to get open and go for 3's.
- Morgan and Horford had bad games, especially Morgan.
- It wasn't the worse loss, we can learn from it, it's still a great team that will contend all year.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||team needs to settle down a bit||
especially the freshmen
|16 weeks 22 hours ago||Hey De'Shawn||
come to San Diego St., we have real earthquakes out here! I hope Saban goes to Texas and pisses off all these Bama recruits, fuck this shit. It sure does feel like SEC pays players.
|16 weeks 22 hours ago||Academics my ass||
what a bunch of BS, the last 2 weeks keep getting better (by better I mean worse).
I just have a feeling the past 2 weeks of play really hurt us here, thanks again Al Borges!
|16 weeks 22 hours ago||Academics my ass||
what a bunch of BS
|16 weeks 22 hours ago||Why are some of you||
saying Bama when we don't know yet?
|16 weeks 22 hours ago||ok||
here we go, back from commercial and I sit here putting my life on hold
|16 weeks 23 hours ago||wow, milking the fuck out of it NBC Sports||
Dungy's dad went to U-M, so there you go, follow him young De'Shawn Skywalker!!!
|16 weeks 23 hours ago||Quit asking him questions||
and let him choose, ugh!!!
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Good effort, good victory||
this is a fun program to watch, I'm so glad it's ours!
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Hi LIU Brooklyn||
please pleas keep beating Indiana
leading them 65-63 with under 5 to go
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Team looks really good||
I really like Walton & Irvin, 2 awesome additions, makes up a lot of what we lost with Trey & THJ
BTW, thanks for the streams guys, very cool.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||One of the most important things to me is||
that I hope they give Shane Morris a fair chance of winning the QB job, don't start Gardner because he's a senior, start him if he is better, so far he has been weak at reading defenses and getting rid of the ball in a timely fashion, can't keep doing that.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||We would be winning more||
we would never had gone 3-9 in 2008, Mallett would have stayed and played for Les, Cam Cameron would prolly be our OC right now....so yeah, much better off.
Thanks for being a great sailor Mr. Bill Martin, asshole extraordinaire.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Nothing but positive thoughts and best wishes||
to your wife and family, may she come out of this fully healthy and able to live a happy and wonderful life going forward.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Hire the coach||
from N. Illinois, why not
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Hoke is in over his head it appears||
I just hope Morris gets a fair chance at winning the QB job next year
I hope Hoke hire a QB coach, fergodsakes
I hope Hoke quits giving me excuses after losing 3 of last 4 games
I hope we don't see a bunch of players transfering, sitting Wilson, if I was him I'd be pissed off as fuck, he's not the problem, stupid decisions like that ain't helping, especially when Furman's PI was so bad, all he had to do was step in front of the WR, way to shake things up Hoke.
Hoke is becoming a joke and I'm not laughing
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Somehow||
this doesn't make me feel any better....but yeah, Go Lions!!!
|17 weeks 11 hours ago||Game||
|17 weeks 11 hours ago||wow, things are getting mighty interesting||
too little too late maybe
|17 weeks 11 hours ago||you can't score if you don't have the ball, usually||
Oregon wasn't scoring even when they had it most of the game
|17 weeks 12 hours ago||despite that TD||
Mariotta can kiss the Heisman goodbye
|17 weeks 12 hours ago||I actually thought||
FSU was better than Oregon going into this game to begin with
|17 weeks 12 hours ago||Oregon is getting a worse beating||
than we did last week, don't you think?
|17 weeks 13 hours ago||I'll take||
17-0 at the half against Oregon any effing time.
|17 weeks 13 hours ago||What a great half of FB||
by Stanford against a team like Oregon, so impressive!
|17 weeks 13 hours ago||Wile has a bigger leg||
Wile should have been the the guy kicking the 52 yd FG at the end of reg vs PSU...he kicked a 49 yarder vs MSU against the wind with no problem and plenty of leg, Gibbons barely made his chip shot with the wind after it hit the upright. LMAO back at ya.
Things shlould be somewhat better than they are, I'm willing to wait and was a staunch supporter of his hiring but I don't like what I'm seeing in many cases.
|17 weeks 13 hours ago||Is Josh Garnett playing at all?||
is he getting positive reviews? anyone know?
|17 weeks 13 hours ago||Man, I loved that screen pass to Gafney||
and miss having it for our offense
|17 weeks 13 hours ago||What kind of team do we want to be||
I look at Stanford and Oregon and Baylor and I want to be mostly like Stanford with a substantial desire and abilty for trickeration.
On defense, I want to attack and light people up, this is what I want.
|17 weeks 13 hours ago||Well, after skimming through some of the comments||
I see the bickering going back and forth and it's really starting to depress me. reading some of the Ace Williams stuff and the Bleacher Report and and the comments, man oh man, hard to read and put up with, but alas, this is the plight we are in right now.
Whatever you believe or not, Mattison has the defense playing timid to me, we attacked in his 1st yr and since then we have gradually become a more bend but don't break D, I want to attack, dare people....this has disappointed me, I hope it changes.
Some of Hoke's decisions have been head sctratching, honestly, for one, Wile should be the damn FG kicker, he's obviously better, but the senior guy starts, and that guy has been struggling and everybody knows it. Also, seemingly not developing these highly rated recruits is worrisome at best.
We played with a swagger in 2011, now, I don't see that as much, something is wrong and it's very concerning.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||BYU is stupid||
they should try and team up up with San Diego St. and try to joing the Pac 12 or Big 12 or something like that.
SDSU should be attractive to the Big 12 especially cause then they can get SoCal market for TV and recruiting.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Ok, maybe the Pipkins point is too early too tell||
but Wile does have a bigger leg, he kicked the 49 yd FG with ease against the wind and Gibbons barely made the chip shot with the wind after it hit the goal post. Also, Wile should have been the one to kick the 52 yarder at PSU at the end of the game, these are bad decisions, plain and simple, the results tell you this.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||For me||
I feel like Schofield should have been moved to LG and Magnuson at RT, ride with Glasgow and Kalis in the interior...Miller was not a good blocker. If Schofield is good enough to play in the NFL, teams would give him a chance to try at RT at that point, moving him to LG where he played well before would only improve his resume', not hurt it. Imagine how good the left side of the line would be that way.
We need a QB coach, plain and simple, Borges is not getting it done in that regard. I'm not sure about Gardner moving forward either, he doesn't read defenses well, is this because of the lack of a QB coach?
I also wonder if Montgomery leaving has hurt our D-Line play. Pipkins was supposed to be a stud who dominated the guy in front of him and he's been meh since enrolling, why is this? I also believe there is a leadership void sans Kovaks. I don't like bend but don't break defenses, I like defenses that are in attack mode and daring teams to move the ball.
Why is Wile not the regular FG kicker, he's obviously better than Gibbons, are we in the business of coddling players feelings or winning?
Many things are amiss, I just hope Hoke can figure things out, right now, I'm concerned and hopefully it will improve but Hoke seems too stubborn to me thus far, he needs to look at himself first.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Nice cut to the||
basket by Caris
|17 weeks 3 days ago||need to finish||
at the basket better boys
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Wayne St.||
is playing tenacious
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Not the most impressive outing thus far||
might as well work on plays like it's a practice I suppose
What level is Wayne St in? Are they as good as it seems here?
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Goaltending?||
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I like what I'm seeing||
from Spike, Irvin, Walton, Horford and Caris....he looks good at the point
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Well||
after watching Inside Mich FB, Hoke was asked why Wile kicked the 1st FG and not Gibbons, he said kicks that are 50-ish yds or so are better with Wile but Gibbons is basically still the FG kicker.
Why is this? Wile kicked a 49 yd Fg against the wind like it was nothing while Gibbons kicked a gimme that hit the upright and barely went in. Are we concerned about Gibbons feelings or winning fucking football games?
This really pisses me off, also, in 1997, the O-Line was young as hell and they kicked ass, this youth shit is excuse after excuse, I'm sorry, but something is wrong, I don't know what it is and have no answers, I just wish the coaches did.
This is from a staunch supporter of the Hoke hire, I'm just concerned at the lack of improvement, this is not a coincidence, something is amiss.
|18 weeks 15 hours ago||I'm also in the whatever boat||
good luck to him, we're fine and will continue to be fine.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||if this were a real game it would be ugly||
but being an exhibition game, I say something like 85-60
|18 weeks 5 days ago||wow, PSU can score||
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Hey Penn St., assholes||
thanks for showing up, I'm still so mad Hoke gave that game away like that, never, ever coach scared....ever!!!
Our program will be fine, just not enough veterans on the team yet, one more year I guess.
What are the chances of us going undefeated the rest of the way? If we did, we would be 13-1, too bad it looks like that's a tall order right now
|18 weeks 6 days ago||If UT & GT are good academic fits, which they are||
they would also be tremendous additions from a TV Footprint, you'd have Atl & the Greater Dallas area and the recruiting base it would add to the B1G, I think those are 2 of the best possibilities out there if we are indeed expanding to 16 teams.
Also, the new logo could be B16, cause the 6 looks like G, amirite.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Oh, you bet your sweet ass I'm excited||
I grew up with the great '70's era and was spoiled with great basketball for 3 decades and then the SUV flipped over, ugh!
Let's just say I'm so happy to see our program being back to it's rightful place, top ten material, year in and year out, we're there now, this team is capable of winning it all, at least a sweet 16 or better.
I think in many ways we will be better than last years team, Walton is the real deal and maybe every bit as good as Burke, his advantage is he doesn't have to carry the load as a frosh like Trey did. Gonna be another fun year.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||After getting hosed by the officials in the NCAA 'Ship||
I'm just so glad to see Louisville fans get their feelings crushed.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Peppers||
can't do it all by himself, his team mates need to stop fumbling
