that's bullshit. What am I supposed to read when I'm staring at my laptop, ignoring my family?
We, your loyal fans, demand more. More, I say!

Beaver was supposed to be one of the early enrollee's Any chance he could't get admitted to UM and therefore chose otherwise?

was taking the train to South Bend and teaching students and Notre Dame to play football. Which, ND seems to have forgotten everything they were taught. We won't end up like ND (no bowl win since 93). We will be fine.

It's weird that we face Duke tonight and again in two weeks in Ann Arbor. At least if we lose tonight, we get a shot at redemption (or futher humilation) on 12/6. That being said, I think we can win tonight if we have the same defensive performance and just a little bit better on offense (like not missing those 2 fast break opportunities). If we beat them tonight on a neutral court, we should definitely beat them on our home court in two week. Plus, we play three more games, including Maryland inbetween. Should be a fun couple of weeks. If we come out of that unbeaten, we gotta be a top 20 team if not top 15. Okay, now I'm getting carried away. Need to calm down...

Sam is a good kid (emphasis on kid). The university, not just the football program, is better off for having a student like Sam on campus. Should Sam choose to leave Michigan, he will be missed. He has a lot to deal with right now and it may be taking a big emotional toll on him. Maybe he is making some rash decisions because he is finding things hard to deal with. We should all cut him some slack and wish him well in dealing with these hard times.

I'm confused, are you a coach or not? I can't infer inflection and tone from reading a sentence.
Scheme wasn't the problem agains Purdue. How many times did first, second, and even third contact come well before the first down marker on defense, yet the Purdue player was still able to break "tackles" and make a first down. Our tackling technique is horrible. Too many players trying to shoulder down offensive players with "big hits" instead of wrapping them up and plowing through the player with the appropriate leverage.
Nobody is more devasted by the team performance this year than the coaches and players. But, to gsimmons point, you can't break down a player's bad habits and instill new ones during the season. You have to completely stop them from ever using their bad habits until they have adopted new ones. During a season there isn't enough time for this to happend inbetween games. Each game, they revert back to old habits. Threet is a perfect example. He has very bad throwing mechanics. Normally, you would spend two years teaching him better technique while an upper-classman played ahead of him.
I believe in this entire coaching staff. Unfortunately, I think it could be 2 more seasons (not until 2011) that we really see a team that executes well.

Ask him what he thinks can be done (not when or how) to improve our Basketball venue. Can Crisler be remodeled or would it better to build a new arena all together and would Michigan ever consider a sponser like Ohio State did with the Schottenstein Center and Value City Arena.

That's funny because I went as Justin Boren. I'll have to get a picture uploaded. Basically, I looked like fat bastard from the Austin Powers movies.
