"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

When Harrison was out 4 weeks (and then suspended a 5th) for a broken orbital bone after getting speared against Houston, Woodley significantly picked up his play and was one of the people keeping the defense afloat.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||False||
One of the best stretches of Woodley's career occurred when Harrison was out with injury/injuries.

Who was that Texas QB who got put in against Bama in the MNC (I believe was a freshman/RS freshman) and promptly crapped the bed, did nothing of note at Texas after that, and transferred to a small school (SMU I think)? Gilbert or something of the like?

I hope we give the "Lane Kiffin" treatment to Borges: fire his ass before he gets back to town. And take Funk with him. The entire time he's been at Michigan I can think of two games he actually called well (Nebraska and OSU in '11) and has been a dumpster full of tires on fire the entire damn time since then. HOW CAN YOU NOT RUN THE BALL FOR POSITIVE YARDS WITH TWO NFL DRAFT PICKS AT THE TACKLE POSITION, ONE OF WHOM WILL PROBABLY GO IN THE TOP TEN.
And sitting there turtle-ing...Lloyd Carr?? IS THAT YOU?! Borges: GET THE F*CK OUT. STACKED BOX? BETTER RUN FOR A LOSS OF TWO. FIRST AND TEN? BETTER RUN STRETCH LEFT. 2ND AND 12? TIME TO RUN PLAY ACTION, SINCE OUR RUN GAME IS SO DAMN GOOD. THIRD AND 7? ALL DEEP ROUTES SO GARDNER HAS TO SCRAMBLE FOR 5 YARDS.

Actually a neat "behind the scenes" history to that: racism. Minnesota had a star back in the 30s named Ozzie Simmons who happened to be black. The Iowa team took exception to that and injured/targeted him. The next year the governors got to smacktalking and thus the bet was a prize Minnesota pig.

how Borges thinks it's ok to keep running that GODDAMN STRETCH RUN when it gets them - at best - no gain EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Both my parents run marathons and live in the town next to Newtown, CT. My father works with a few people who lost children in the Newtown rampage. This crap is unbelievable and hits far too close to home.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Numerous reasons||
What if I don't have reliable internet connection? What if I just want to play the game offline, without EA tracking everything I do, or IT'S A DAMN SINGLE PLAYER GAME (cough SimCity cough). What if I want to play a game while traveling, or where there isn't a wired internet connection available (buy this wireless adaptor for $90!)
This DRM fad will no doubt transfer and spread like a virus to other types of games and platforms. XBox 720 requiring constant internet connection? No thanks. There's no reason. This opens up Pandora's box, like the rumor that the XBox 720 won't have physical copies of the games, just digital. I want a disc for the game, damn it. This way companies can't pull an EA on me and shut down the servers of a game I love and paid for a few years ago, and/or force me to use a patch that breaks the game/makes it worse.
There are so many things wrong with the DRM and the attitude behind it.

Assuming it doesn't come tomorrow, the earliest I could get it would be Monday (23), which is nearly a month after they "shipped". The fact that others who have just ordered are getting theirs before the "pre" orders are is just unacceptable, not to mention the month-long wait.

I harbor the same gripes as have been stated above, along with my "I'm not sure if my postman stole it/is reading it or not" gripe, "maybe it's too big to fit in my tiny mailbox" worry ("and what if one of my neighbors stole it"), and the whole "college student going to be moving soon after a summer internship" fiasco which would really, really suck if "I" got it after I moved.
The "will be in mailboxes starting June 30" thing is going on a month now, and if I get it by the end of this week I'll be surprised at this point. I've no doubt the material is spectacular and there is no ill will/malicious intent on any of the parties who produced/shipped, but the incredible frustration mounts daily. People (especially those fortunate enough to live in AA/who already received theirs) telling those who HAVEN'T received their copy to CALM DOWN BRO and the like further exacerbates the situation.
|2 years 1 week ago||Did you finish weekly recruiting?||
I read on operationsports.com (GREAT sports gaming website, btw) that there's an issue where, if you haven't finished your weekly recruiting yet (as in, did some, saved, then turned the system off/rebooted) and NOT played the game yet that the game will freeze when you try to go into it. The fix is to go into recruting; sometimes just entering the menu makes it work, sometimes you have to reorder recruits/move someone on or off the board. Stupid, but that's what's been figured out so far.

Your thoughts on NASCAR were as accurate as my example was for football.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Like the poster above said||
Like the poster above said (whether in jest or not) it's the constant load the tires are put under from the left-hand turns at such high speeds. The stress and heat on the tires would be too much.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||My preferences||
Brad is my #1 driver. AJ Allmendinger is #2 (Dodges).
After that...well, I don't really root for anyone else. I was a die-hard Martin fan, but now he's the only Toyota I won't hate if he wins. Kyle Busch has crazy talent, but drives a Toyota and is an ass generally. Kurt...don't mind him. Hate the 24, 48, 29, 11. Don't mind Danica or Smoke.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||There's a reason for that||
There is not a tire on earth that can handle the wet and the stress the cars in NASCAR would put on them. They race in the rain on road courses, however.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Fat, dumb people||
That's like saying football is just fat, stupid people running into each other. Generalizations are fun!
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I know Brad, and his brother Brian||
They're from a great family (I'm from the same town as them). Plus Brad (well, his team, Penske Racing) races Dodges. And Roger Penske (team owner) is from Michigan as well.

Was dicey at best with a bum kicker at Heinz Field into the open end of the stadium.
The ending to that game disgusted me. I almost hate Baltimore as much as Ohio State.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||So you're saying||
that because Michigan played badly, those penalties wouldn't have affected the outcome of the game? Given another play, even the worst team has an opportunity to put it in the endzone.
People who use this logic baffle me.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Well, it's the same tree||
Not to say I don't love Bo (I do, seriously the nicest person I've ever met), but it's the same family tree. The old man (my father) was a staunch supporter of Lloyd, as he was of Moeller. Rodriguez came in and if they won, he said nothing. If they lost, he was griping, complaining, and moaning about anything, something.
Also, I love how because my last post had "RR" in it, it got tagged as flamebait? Really?

I was going to suggest we grab a beer or two at the Wooden Nickel (or somewhere else) after the game but I guess that's not possible, lol.

|2 years 39 weeks ago||Thank you.||
I would have posted my take (very similar to yours) but I'm sure no one would have believed me (and also for sticking up for Marquette, my adopted home).

|2 years 39 weeks ago||Me too, weird.||
I thought I was the only one (not the only Michigan fan, but the only MGoBlogger) up here. Slightly weird.
Though I will say that the only time I root against Michigan is when they play NMU in hockey...
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Sparty doesn't need FHH||
Remember, they recruit nationally now.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||THIS is the .gif we need||
Seriously, technology people, let's make it happen!
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Hey Ace||
Not to be an ass but Harrison played Rochester Adams this week, not Rochester.
/plugging the alma mater; Go Highlanders
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Boo||
I wanted 798...oh well - 799 then!
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Yes.||
This was used by the Bears D in 1985, and it absolutely destroyed offenses. The Bears won the Super Bowl 45-10 or something like that over the Patriots, and many consider the 85 Bears D to be one of the top 3 defenses of all time, if not THE best. It basically took away first and second down in an era where the run was the primary offense. Then, on third (or if a team passed a lot, like the Marino-era Dolphins), Buddy Ryan (his sons Rex and Rob are in the NFL, with Rex being the NYJ HC and Rob the DAL DC) would dial up ridiculous blitz schemes and would just wreck offenses.
I haven't watched too much tape on them, but damn is that defense scary on paper.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Yeah, I kept looking||
I kept looking at Jake Ryan thinking "who the hell is this?!", not being able to see the number really well (and not really remembering that he's #90 now, still thinking he's #37) and that was what really confused me.

For some reason he doesn't cover two gaps well, hence why he plays the 3-tech and not the 1-tech a lot. Maybe it's his vision, maybe it's his ability to slide/get to the gaps, who knows. Sucks that Martin can't (at least right now) become Warren Sapp re-incarnate; hopefully someone steps up so he can just ball out.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||"5-3"||
It looks like a 46 but without the SS up in the box. Interesting.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Hey now||
I did undergrad at NMU, it's a nice place. The Superior Dome is awesome. Football team isn't too bad, either (in terms of D-2).
|2 years 44 weeks ago||How would one go about that?||
Contact the athletic department and ask?
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Nice||
I totally forgot about the platoon system and didn't actually know about the S&C staff. Cool!
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Exactly, the "shortness" of it will be the hardest thing||
Thank you for those books...I've checked out (or owned) some of them, but I will definitely look at the rest.
I'm really excited to go to Bentely and look at all this stuff, this is for a Michigan History class and when I brought up me doing something on Michigan Stadium (figuring, you know, that would be a "proper" research topic) my professor was actually the one who suggested doing something on Michigan football lore. Pretty stoked, especially if I get to see some historical stuff first-hand.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Shouldn't it be titled||
Double meaning there, as well.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Too bad they didn't do the "right thing"||
and suspend Floyd's boozing hiney.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Warren||
Will probably be put on our PS; at least, I believe that is the intention.
While he played well, no doubt, and we do need better CB play, Gay is signed for low cost for this single year - he's not going to get cut, no matter how much I want him to. Warrens real downfall was all the drafted - some highly - guys in front of him, none of whom are at a point where they could be cut (either draft picks from this year or last, or established vets like Taylor and McFadden).
If this was Madden, Gay would be cut...but the Steelers know that they can go to the Super Bowl with William Gay (it's been one for sure, perhaps two), so there's little doubt there for Gay.
Should Donovan make it back to our PS and stay with the Steelers, I'd expected him to make an impact either next year for sure or this year if Gay (or McFadden, honestly) regress and/or get injured.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||Nope, Steelers||
We signed him to a future (ie, this year) contract last year towards the end of the year.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||As a Pirates fan||
this game enrages me to no end. Bring on instant replay.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||Thanks!||
I can't ever remember a Bucs winning season...it's been too long!
|3 years 3 days ago||Info||
Where at and how much?
|3 years 5 days ago||Just like in real life||
If you step up in the pocket and step into your throw I've found the throw to be more effective and accurate. It's a little touch of reality I find startlingly awesome to be honest.
As for containing the edge...I don't play online so I don't know if this would work, but in Dynasty on AA I typically use the 4-3 under (the over and regular sometimes to switch it up) and the "extra" man on the line either blitzes or plays a zone close; this tends to help with contain. I usually control a DL (usually Roh) so that helps as well.
|3 years 5 days ago||If you want the offense from last year||
Simply use Pitt's playbook for the offense from last year, since Calvin McGee went there to be OC. It's most of the stuff from last year...though I will say it's super hard to get that QB power (aka, The Denard Play) to work even remotely effectively in the game. Maybe I'm using him wrong or spamming the turbo too quickly, however...
|3 years 8 weeks ago||No, it's overall||
|3 years 8 weeks ago||This isn't just about illegal hits||
Hits altogether are being removed. You cannot hit someone while they're throwing or catching a ball. How is that football? You're playing gym-class flag ball at that point. May as well play offense-only or 7-on-7.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Classy.||
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Please, point me to where||
I said I liked Roethlisberger or supported him? Innocent until guilty. The first instance was shady (from the female) at best. The second instance was a cluster-mess.
But, again, keep thinking that because I root for Pittsburgh I slob on the knob of anyone who wears a uniform.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||So||
because I root for the Steelers and hate soccer I'm terrible? Good to know.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||How's life under the bridge?||
Looks terrible from here.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Definitely not from PA||
And if you can't or don't want the risk in whatever job it is, don't take the job. It's very simple. We're all adults, we live in a free society, and if you don't want X happening to you because of said job, either don't take the position or retire early. Very simple.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||I love how||
Anyone who doesn't think these Goodell rules are a good idea are getting negged and tagged as "trolling" or "flamebait".
Thanks for having a discussion, guys. Neg anyone who you don't agree with. Awesome.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||There's a tag-along||
(or earlier addition this offseason, I'm not entirely sure) where the pass reciever now is required to catch the ball and gather himself before he can be hit. I mean...it's flag football.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Sorry I like football||
I'll be sure to catch the start of the next soccer season.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Should we re-think||
crab fishing, mining, military life, airplanes, etc because they're dangerous professions?
|3 years 8 weeks ago||What...||
I am not a trained athlete. I haven't played in the NFL and trained for that PROFESSIONAL CAREER, so because I can't do the things these people do I can't have an opinion on it?
OK, guess I can only have an opinion on English, History, and Teaching. If I ever see someone complain about or have an opinion on something they don't do as a profession or job then I guess I'll have to report them.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Yeah that was||
Look, I'm not condoning intentially injuring people or playing dirty (the Merriweather hit comes to mind), but when you get fined because (1) you block someone and knock them out or (2) hit someone and because they fetal-position it as you're hitting them they get their head knocked in that's a little absurd IMO.
If the NFL wanted to do this right, they'd set up a five-man committe of former players and have them review hits they deemed "questionable". If the majority thinks they were dirty or unnecissary, then the guy gets a fine (or whatever).
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Riiiight||
1) that's all they've been known for their entire history, right? Oops. Sorry they PLAY FOOTBALL and are, you know, physical.
2) Two allegations, one thrown out of court and the other couldn't even make it to court because the evidence was so weak the girl BRAGGED about having consentual relations with BR to her coworkers, = rape. Did they change the meaning of the word? I may be in trouble if they did, just let me know.
Quit being a jealous ass.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Part of the job||
If I don't want to get washed overboard and freeze/drown in the Bering Sea, I won't get on a crab boat.
If I don't want to die in a fiery plane crash, I won't be a pilot.
If I don't want my body to be beat to hell and suffer brain damage, I won't play in the NFL.
It's pretty simple. If you don't want to get your skull smashed in, don't play.
