joe got a ton of credit for taking prince in the 20's (and okur in the second round of that same draft). he probably gets the right amount of respect for drafting stuckey.
drummond, monroe, and knight were all obvious picks. one might have said the same about burke, but....
|1 year 47 weeks ago||really glad to see trey and||
really glad to see trey and tim doing so well. i expected big things but they are far exceeding them.
it is good for the program to have established nba talent, but one does have to wonder if the talent on last year's squad was better than given credit... not doubting beilien but i thought he run said more about his genius, but maybe we just had a damn good backcourt. or both.
so sick of dumars. i would have bought league pass to see trey on the pistons.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||addidas payed millions more||
addidas payed millions more than nike, enough for the past regime to go with them. the new regime will be moving us back to nike.
UA doesnt support all UM sports, which makes it a non-starter.
<--- in the know.

i was hoping jim harbaugh would slap him around again before he got canned.
the guy was a mediocre coach on his best days, a complete bafoon always.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||the economics of baseball are||
the economics of baseball are changing, big time. revenue sharing, more tv money for the national and local contracts (by factors of 2x's and 3x's). this contract, and this offseason, is crazy in comparison of past years, but might be reasonable compared with future years.
i like our platoon in left, but i did hear the good argument that we may have wanted choo after this season, and next year the fa market for OF will be weak.
all in all, i am content with this offseason. the tigers never reached their potential last year, and i think we may be worse on paper this year but i bet we win more games, and our ws odds should be about the same. so to slim down the payrole and accomplish that is great gm'ing.
one critique is the fister trade. no one seems to like it. in hindsight, i wish we have traded fister to boston for iglesias rather than the deal that was made (and kept garcia). seems like a package could have been made, and garcia would have made the choo debate a non starter.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||you keep bring up trey's||
you keep bring up trey's injury like he's greg oden. he missed 8 games. he was healthy his entire michigan career. its a non factor in a year where the pistons are conetending for nothing.
you getting so emotional over people defending a michigan folk hero makes me think you are posting on the wrong board.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||the pistons have been||
the pistons have been irrelivent for 5 years but they couldnt have survived trey missing a handful of games? what planet are you living on?
the burke pick is, was, and will always be unpopular.
i dont know what knight has to do with this, since he was traded anyway.
umumum is right, you are truly puzzling.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||im not guru but this kid||
im not guru but this kid seems like a better kid than you get in most classes, the kind of kid that buys a coach on shaky ground more time...
|1 year 49 weeks ago||answer to op: one more than||
answer to op: one more than he is gonna get.
couldnt happen to less classy individual. seemed like a sharp guy, but not as smart as he thought he was. which is as bad as being dumb sometimes.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||some of you really need to||
some of you really need to chill out.
this wasnt a moral victory. thats not where this team is. it was a step in the right direction.
beyond robinson, i think we will be stuck in the mud until walton gets better control of the offense. right now, we rely on one or two guys going off, but rarely does it feel like a team playing together (like the title run last year). but the potential is there, big time. and i love having a coach i 100% trust to get us there. i dont mean to blame walton, either. i dont see reason for blame at all after this game. taking the #1 team to the wire really isnt so bad.
im guessing the people sour about this loss werent around in the dark ages. this season has been a ton of fun to watch, and its going to get even better. i think this team is really close to getting there.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||i was thinking about when he||
i was thinking about when he grabbed lewan and schoefeild.
i don't personally know devin, obviously, but from a distance he strikes me as someone who could come off the better for going through a little hell - and i think this season qualifies as that.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||pretty frustrated. the||
pretty frustrated. the coaching staff lost me in penn state....
but it also gets old whining about the coaching. its the easiest scape goat. as far back as the early 2000's i remember people saying it was time for lloyd to move on, and it only got worse till he finally did.
some people wanted rodriguez gone before he even coached a game.
now its hoke's turn. firing someone doesnt automatically fix a problem. telling some or all of the coaches to take a hike would feal good in the short term but im more worried about beating osu and (sigh) msu more than once in a while.
to me, it looked like this team had a lot of youth, and lacked on field leaders. devin wasn't quite that this year. but after this season, i think he might be one next year. with that, hopefully a stouter O-line, bigger threat recievers, improved running backs, and what could be a great defense, this team could turn a corner next year.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||so frustrated hard to make a||
so frustrated hard to make a rational prediction. its really going to suck losing to OSU and MSU yet again, but seems inevitable.
what pisses me off is hokes "this was a shitty season" speach he made last year. this year was 10x worse. was he just thinking out loud or do his words mean anything? because if they were more than words you'd think we'd see some accountability in action.
right now i'm feeling like hoke and co are all talk. "this is michigan fergodsakes" doesn't seem to mean so much 3 years later.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||pretty bad sign when one team||
pretty bad sign when one team dominates the second half of a game tied at halftime.
|2 years 1 week ago||werent ready for @good||
werent ready for @good veteran team. disapointed in GRIII's play -he looked like last year when he was mia most of the year. im expecting him to fight stauskus for lead dog.
stauskus looks great. lavert was good in first half. mcgary looked like his back is fine. if irvin/walton emerge this year we are going to be uber deep.
|2 years 1 week ago||if you told me schwartz won||
if you told me schwartz won some sort of madden tournament to get his job i'd believe it. he's got a fan's mentality coaching an nfl team. if he could strip 60% of his emotion, he'd probably be a good coach. too bad that wont happen till he gets fired.
turning down 2 field goals is the story of the game, imo.
|2 years 1 week ago||i am of the mindset that 2014||
i am of the mindset that 2014 is B1G championship or bust. unless we are decimated by injuries, anything less is unacceptable, and it will be time to restart. the schedule wont be favorable, but the team should have no excuses with a roster full of talented upperclassman, most of whom will be brady's recruits.
we will have to win at nd, sparty, and osu (how did that happen to our schedule?), but imo, falling to 1-3 to either of sparty or the buckeyes in and of itself is nearly enough for dismissal. its a tough proposition, but when this regime served up shit sandwiches back to back years it is fair.
if hoke wants borges, funk, whoever - that is fine. but it should be his job on the line.
edit: at northwestern too. wow.
|2 years 1 week ago||nice perspective for those of||
nice perspective for those of us a little gloomy about stuff that doesnt matter at all.
very glad to see this milestone for him. hopefully he enjoys it.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||I don't hate Borges like||
I don't hate Borges like some. The book is out on our offense. O line is porous, FItz can't pass block. Devin is majorly rattled. No playmakers to bail him out.
Granted, he hasn't fixed the problem, but not sure there is a fix this year. The high water mark of the year was beating a fringe ranked team, who would certainly beat us if it were in ND or even if they played us now.
Terrible season. So much worse than last year. Strike 2 for Hoke. Next season is everything for him.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||so happy its not gene lamont||
so happy its not gene lamont or dusty baker.
i would have been happy with larussa (never seemed likely), gardenhire, or ausmus.
ausmus is obviously the riskiest, but also boldest. i dont think managing ego's is too big of a deal. cabrarra, hunter, martinez, scherzer, and verlander are team first guys. i'd say prince too, but he was pretty moody this year and a more delicate situation. the secondary guys might be the tougher to manager.
dombrowski certainly gets the benefit of the doubt from me.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||fate?||
|2 years 6 weeks ago||sending in shane rather than||
sending in shane rather than taking a TO cost us a crucial down and maybe 4 pts.
very bad night for the coaches.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||devin is good at picking up||
devin is good at picking up globs of yards. settling for a 41 yard attempt without any real attempt to improve field position was a stupid decision.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||coaches gave away OT #1. if||
coaches gave away OT #1. if it werent for recruiting i might be pretty sour on these coaches.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Can't he get someone to take||
Can't he get someone to take the test for him?
|4 years 9 weeks ago||thought he looked||
thought he looked better than woolfolk, who didnt seem to be playing well. better than avery too. coaches must have thought so, as well, since he stayed out there after floyd came back.
dont think he took anyone's starting spot right away, but i think we have a new regular on the defense.
he honestly couldnt have played better for his first real action.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||interested in this too, even||
interested in this too, even though its probably not going to end in anything.
selling a good you own doesnt = income, but if the items were the schools and then his, the transfer in ownership should technically have been income as well, right?
for example, winning the championship ring was taxable income if he was making above the minimimum reportable.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||hopefully that stays true.||
hopefully that stays true. wont hold it against him if it doesnt, though. hopefully a nba lockout talk heats up and the decision becomes alot simpler for him.
the play of the game, to me, was the play after nolan smith broke hardaways ankles. morris took the ball down the court, posted smith up, and took him to school. awesome play, and way to have his backcourt mate's back.\
|4 years 45 weeks ago||this feels imminent. if we||
this feels imminent. if we dont conclude the meeting with les as coach tomorrow (or seems likelier tonight) it would be very odd.
i have alot of reservations but its far from a disaster.
he's proven he can win with other people's talent. and combine the 2011 schedule with les's luck and we very well could be the it story of 2011.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||the wins look nice, but||
the wins look nice, but consider that NC was with saban's players. that before the second half of this season, the fire les contingent at LSU had been very loud since about the year after he won the championship. that many people think lsu wins despite his coaching, not because of it.
his on the field stuff is questionable, but off the field is not: he's got more than one closet full of skeletons. dicking over 18 year olds is wrong. bringing those sanctions on LSU should make his hiring a non starter alone. the negative recruiting against carr means we're unlikely to have a united program... i could have sworn that was an issue at one point... and then theres that rumor about les and moeller's wife.
if les is the hire, fine. ceratinly not my first choice but i'd support the program still and hope for the best. i just would prefer not to have to hold my nose while cheering on the team.
