Did anyone else notice that at the conclusion of the national anthem, you could see the words on the jumbotron say "home of the brave?" With a question mark!Very odd.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Well it will be interesting||
Well it will be interesting to see the ratings if Direct TV and NBC don't reach an agreement, as Direct Tv has over 20 million subscribers. These contract disputes are fairly common but with Sunday Night Football and Domer nation blacked out, I imagine it will be back on Direct TV within two weeks. Gonna have to find a bar or a friends house without Direct TV.
EDIT: Apperently this only affects Raycom Media networks - which is what i have in SC - so that's only like 50 stations. Also, thanks to some fact digging, college football and NFL won't be affected. I can step off the ledge now.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Cornell has great size, speed||
Cornell has great size, speed and length, but i don't recall seeing a highlight tape from a five star high school product, much less the #1 overall, with so many arm tackles. He definitly has exceptional speed and a motor which you cannot teach. But appears he could add some weight. Reminds me of Mario Ojemdia's highlight tape. I'm not saying he isn't going to be a stud, but i'm guessing he drops in the rankings at some point.

Has anyone else had issues with the Quicken Loans Bracket? I signed up, submitted my phone number, they texted me back confirmation, then they sent an email confirmation. I clicked it and now it says my phone number is already submitted but i can play for bragging rights.
I ain't trying to play for no bragging rights.

Opps, wrong thread. umm.. but yes. that i hope we get to play Louisville.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||The O-line really wasn't all||
The O-line really wasn't all that bad. Borges didn't give Garner a chance. We ran Max protect, sending two recievers out wayyyy to many times. When the routes were covered up, Devin had nowhere to go.
We all knew the blitz was coming and instead of taking the offensive and maybe running some short routes, slants, screens, we played right into their hands. I put this squarly on Borges and his lack of making adjustments.

I might not have enough points to create a topic but did anyody see ESPN's Hell Week High School Special? I DVR'ed it tonight but apperently it wasn't on ESPN 2 as advertised.
Did it play on another ESPN channel?

Where can i find the blue Michigan outerwear old school Addias zipup with the throwback M? i don't see it on the mden website.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||My favorite Michigan||
My favorite Michigan non-revenue sport to watch is the wrestling team. The reason is simply because majority of the people that go to the matches are extremely familiar with the sport, how it's scored and the work ethic behind the scenes. If you've never wrestled or watched family wrestle, you probably haven't been to more than one or two matches in your life.
It is the most grueling yet rewarding sport you can partake in. You can sense the wrestlers feeding off of the crowd during the matches. Cliff Keen Arena is alright, but Iowa's Carver Hawkee Arena is like Disney World for wrestling advocates.

From the coach to the players... this team did not show up tonight. You can blame the refs, crowd, coaches, lack of of inside presence we feature on either end of the court.... This team NO SHOWED tonight. i do not expect this to happen again.

I don't see 17 better players than Trey Burke coming out of college or overseas. It's a crime if he doesn't go top ten IMO. The Bucks are a damn good fit for him though. I see him as a Brenndon Jennings type of player in the NBA.

|3 years 22 weeks ago||11. What is your preference||
11. What is your preference on a B1G Basketball Tourney? (Every team qualifies, or 12 of 14 teams qualify.)
I voted for everybody because you can essentially have a border line big ten team that needs one or two wins to sneak into the tournyey. This would give them a better shot since they would most liekly have an easier matchup than with 12 teams. The more B1G teams, the better.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Not scared to play anybody.||
Not scared to play anybody. This Michigan team is talented and much better now than week 1. We would give the Aggies all they could handle.
4 losses this year to teams that have lost a total of 3 games... To much panic on these boards.

|3 years 24 weeks ago||I love when people get||
I love when people get butthurt about being downvoted (note, it wasnt me). But for real... it's the internet. Who cares. I barely post on here but as of late, all these people are whining and bitching like a bunch of kids in a world of warcraft forum. Just Stop It.
On a more related note. I had a college coach use similar tactics as Kill. In fact, this particular coach i'm reffering to is still coaching because he win's (not a Michigan coach, the sport was not football either). I'd be corfortable saying that 90% of the athletes on the team do not like this indivdual. He has numerous confrontations with his players and their parents every year. If you were not a starter or a very servicable backup, the chances of you playing all 4-5 years there slim to none. Even the kids that start for him disliked him.
The only reason he is still coaching and winning is because he is able to get the absolute BEST out of his starters by playing headgames, manipulation and installing fear in his players. This theory of coaching still works for some people. I see it less with younger coaches these days but it is still happening.
I don't blame A.J for wanting out but he went a little over board. This happens a lot more than he thinks.

I wish for the day when wearing throwback uniforms are cool again.... and not newly designed throwbacks.... no. Go into the storage shed and pull out the 1991 uniforms. No piping or anything like that. Lose the elastic in the sleeves and give them that old school look.

Not sure why everybody is saying Slippery Rock is one of the top teams in D2. They are picked to finish second in their division and at least 3rd or fourth in their conference. They aren't receiving votes in the top 25. LINK
Aside from that, Michigan rolls by 20.

|4 years 3 weeks ago||DETROIT||
The Courage of Detroit - by Mitch Albom. Without a doubt, the greatest article ever written about Michigan and the city of Detroit. Hit's the nail on the head.
A couple great quotes from the article.
"It's not that we watch more, or pay more, or cheer louder than other cities. But I will bet you my last dollar that, when it comes to sports, nobody cares as much as Detroit cares."
"People in Detroit can still tell you where they were when they heard about that limo smashing into a tree in suburban Birmingham six days after the Cup win of '97, forever changing the lives of Vladimir Konstantinov, Slava Fetisov and Sergei Mnatsakanov. Vigils were held outside the hospital.
Remember, these were two hockey players and a masseur, Russians to boot; none of them did much talking in English. Didn't matter. They were ours, and they were wounded. It felt as if there was no other news for weeks in Detroit. "You hear anything?" people would say. "Any updates?"
"Enough. We're not gum on the bottom of America's shoe. We're not grime to be wiped off with a towel. Detroit and Michigan are part of the backbone of this country, the manufacturing spine, the heart of the middle class -- heck, we invented the middle class, we invented the idea that a factory worker can put in 40 hours a week and actually buy a house and send a kid to college. What? You have a problem with that? You think only lawyers and hedge-fund kings deserve to live decently?"
"Maybe because when our kids finish college and take that first job in some sexy faraway city and a year later we see them back home and we ask what happened, they say, "I missed my friends and family." And we nod and say we understand."

Alright, well it sounds like the guy im thinking of. Good umpire, however, he was always trying to be a big shot out there. Like he had something to prove every game. If you disagreed with a call, he let you know how he felt. Even if you weren't trying to show him up, it seemed like he felt offended. Had no problem talking garbage right at players.
I'll never forget, I was coaching an American Legion ball team and he was throwing a hissy fit behind the plate. He was even jawing with the fans. Both teams and fans were irate. So, my pitcher and catcher got together once there was a man on first and they decided to throw a pitch out, but when the catcher jumped up and over, our pitcher hummed in a fastball right down the middle. Hit him right on the hand. He turned around, swore at me (even though i was unaware this was happening) and walked off the field. He just drove off. The base ump had to suit up to finish the game.
Bush league on my players, but the guy had it coming.

I'm talking about the University of Tennessee from the SEC. I don't know much about the money that the conference makes but I'd venture to guess the B1G pulls in more. They would fit in every nicely in every sport.
I just don't believe this conference will settle on bringing in some cupcake schools that don't academically fit and are halfway across the country. I think the B1G will pull a shocker and grab a team from the SEC.

I sat a section over from the amazing ball-in-hat catch. It got a nice ovation from the crowd. Overall, I thought the stadium was beautiful. Kind of an ugly loss on Sunday, but the team showed some skills laying down bunts. Need to get some PFP tho.
Also, Brian Goodwin has arguably the best walk-up song in college baseball. If you know what that song is called, please let me know.

The Pistons won't be leaving the state. The only positive i see out of all of this is the fact that they will probably have the opportunity to move downtown under new ownership and share a place with the Red Wings.
My guess is Tom Wilson stays in Detroit. I wouldn't be surprised if Mr. I got him on the phone already.

If you want to see how a big tailback works in the spread, take a look at Bryan Schroeder from Central Michigan. He's listed at 5'9 and 216. Runs like a beast in the spread. You don't need to hit a home run every play. I will take five yards a pop any day. If Hopkins can catch the ball out of the backfield, he will be fine.
|6 years 20 weeks ago||If one were to move...||
If one were to move, it would be the Pistons. Mrs. D is selling off everything. Most of you don't know that that Palace Sports and Entertainment own the Asheville Tourists Baseball team (Single-A to the Colorado Rockies). It has recently become public that the team is up for sale. They also own Meadowbrook and DTE.
That being said, i don't see them moving anywhere but downtown Detroit in the next 10-12 years. Even if she were to sell the team (which i don't see happening), i believe they would look to build an arena downtown... Maybe share a new facility with the Red Wings?!?!?
|6 years 21 weeks ago||umm.. no||
Since when is a Wednesday Night game on espn 2 a prime time game? It's really hard for alumni, many of which live in Metro Detroit, to travel up to Mount Pleasant for an 8 PM game.
It's tough to get fans into those seats when you only have five home games, 3 of which are on Saturday's. Plus their biggest rival (WMU) was a road game this year. Not their fault. You gotta take those weekday games for national coverage when you play in the MAC.
