You have to be a troll. No way someone is this much of a UofM student stereotype. If you are an actual real person, you shouldn't feel bad about not getting money, you should feel bad about being an extreme case of a douchebag. I just can't fathom it. Your arrogance is so over the top, it can't be real. Maybe I just choose to believe you can't be real because in my four years, I never met anyone nearly pretentious enough to make the statements you are making in this thread.
As an FYI, I was hungover when I took it and I only took it once. Not sure why I felt compelled to defend myself to a troll. Dammit! You baited me!

I get the feeling that all the extreme pompous assholes in this thread (and there quite a few) are trolls from other schools trying to make Michigan alums look bad.
|3 days 5 hours ago||I got a 24 on the ACT,||
I got a 24 on the ACT, apparently just above "WOW not good" status, and was admitted to Michigan. I wasn't an athlete at UM. Maybe you hop off that high horse of yours long enough to actually look at what you wrote and be less douchey
|4 days 43 min ago||If it were an odd guy here or||
If it were an odd guy here or there, then there wouldn't be numerous stories about everything I mentioned in every paper. Our own ex players were distancing themselves from the program on Monday night football, saying they were from Lloyd Carr's University of Michigan, then promptly making up a bullshit excuse as to how they just wanted to show Lloyd some love.. Stories of seniors in RichRod's first year giving up on him and purposefully tanking. Numerous stories of how ex players got their feelings hurt and felt like they weren't welcome back, as if RichRod somehow told them not to show up. It wasn't just an odd guy here or there. We wouldn't be having this discussion if just a couple people didn't like him.

Jim harbaugh went 8-8 last year with San Fran. Either dysfunction within the Niners played a big part in that or he forgot how to coach. He lost to the Raiders! I have seen plenty of people on this board write off last year as invalid because the Niners front office is a bunch of idiots. Apparently that argument doesn't apply to RichRod and all the backstabbing he got while here
|4 days 3 hours ago||People thought he was an||
People thought he was an egomaniac because he played score-o at a hockey game. Do you remember shred-gate? When people were up in arms because he shredded documents at WV before leaving? There were numerous stories and topics on the MgoBoard about it. Then it turned out those documents were absolutely nothing and it wasn't a big deal. Those two things happened a year before he coached a game. Then there was the buyout situation and his failed real estate venture that he took plenty of heat for in the news and on blogs. Everything I've mentioned is something ridiculous that has nothing to do with his coaching at Michigan, all of which wouldn't have been a story if a "real Michigan man" were hired. People hated him the second he was hired for petty, ridiculous reasons. No, his record wasn't good here. But the number of people who think he just forgot how to coach football for 3 years and don't want to acknowledge he was treated like shit here for reasons having nothing to do with his record are delusional. He is one of the best coaches in the nation and somehow he sucked here. I wonder if it was him or us?
|4 days 9 hours ago||3-9 and 5-7 didn't turn the||
3-9 and 5-7 didn't turn the fanbase on him. It just reinforced their already existing disdain for him. RichRod did make his own legacy though and his time at Michigan is the outlier, not the norm. The football program being a cancer from the top down was the much bigger revalation that came of RichRod's tenure here. I still don't understand how anyone can look at RichRod and think he is a bad coach. He didn't work out here, but citing his record with no context means nothing. It was long before his coaching began that his family was under attack, his character, everything about him outside of the football world. Nothing was off limit to ridicule RichRod. So no, his record had nothing to do with a large number of the fanbase saying he was stupid because he had a southern accent
|5 days 3 hours ago||Ah yes, he "earned" playing||
Ah yes, he "earned" playing time. It wasn't that he was given the chance to play so he could get a point when we're up by a lot. I wonder what happened the rest of the year then. Did he do something to fall out of favor with the coaches? I mean, they benched him for every second of game time the rest of the year! Beilein is a dick.
|5 days 4 hours ago||But you can't just||
But you can't just extrapolate his numbers over the year. That's like saying Dawkins got better over his freshman season and completely ignoring that Robinson would get better as well. Since Dawkins didn't play much until halfway through the season, the only person who has actually been through the rigor of a season is Robinson, and he won national player of the year. You are biased because you saw Dawkins improve and get better. My guess is you have seen zero of Robinson, so I'm not sure why you think he hasn't improved from his freshman year
|5 days 6 hours ago||Were we watching the same||
Were we watching the same guy? I saw a ton of progress in the last 2 weeks of the season from Chatman, let alone the second half of the year.
|5 days 6 hours ago||But it wasn't just practice||
But it wasn't just practice when he won player of the year 2 years ago. I get the love for Dawkins and I'm excited to see him get better, but he wasn't even one of the best freshmen in the B10 let alone in the nation. I think Dawkins will be amazing when his time in AA is up, but anyone thinking Duncan has only been good in practice isn't paying much attention. A true freshmen getting player of the year, whether D1 or D3, is a fantastic accomplishment. Duncan isn't anywhere comparable to Donnal because, yes, he has proved it on the floor and not just in practice. Unless you somehow think Donnal could have been player of the year 2 years ago, then the comparisons stop at they are both tallish and white
|6 days 2 hours ago||Considering Boone himself||
Considering Boone himself disagreed with his own statement with comments he made recently, it isn't that there is no merit to it, he just sounds pathetic. "I love Jim and everything he did. No one appreciates him more than I do. What...he isn't coaching here anymore? God I disliked the way he coached and so did everyone else here."
|6 days 3 hours ago||To be fair, every fan base||
To be fair, every fan base has morons, and FeauxMichBro is possibly the worst commenter on Mgo. I'm pretty sure he is a troll and a douchebag, so his comments don't really represent Michigan fans
|6 days 23 hours ago||They were 4-0 against UConn,||
They were 4-0 against UConn, Texas, Houston, and Virginia. Of those teams, Houston was the only team that ended up .500. Hill is talented, but our defense will probably face 4 QBs better than him.

Ah yes, such a bad premise it was one of the best series of the wildly popular batman comics. I often wonder why people who don't like/read comics want to let everyone know their ideas on said comics.

I fucking hate our fans sometimes. Pinky and those similar are the absolute worst. Go fucking root for another team
|1 week 2 days ago||Discussion is completely fine||
Discussion is completely fine with me. Speculating on who will leave the team, who isn't going to contribute because they haven't met our expectations as redshirt freshmen, and who isn't dedicated to the team because they heard from no one in particular that they were upset about not playing and they were possibly going to leave because a freshman coming in might take their minutes is not ok with me. If you look at any discussion on Davis, you will undoubtedly find names of guys speculated to leave the team for no other reason than they didn't play much as a redshirt freshmen. That isn't something I think we should get into.
The fact that we lost 3 big men within a couple weeks of that Kentucky game and it wasn't even mentioned in the post should be a sign of how in depth this analysis of our roster is. This post could have been easily said in any of the other threads about his commitment.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm just guessing here, but||
I'm just guessing here, but maybe Beilein knows roster management better than random posters on the Internet, therefore he is probably evaluating his roster, evaluating talent, and taking commitments from people who are good at basketball.
Did we not all learn after overreacting to Davis' sophomore tape and then seeing him look much more lean and athletic a year later that maybe, just maybe, our basketball coach is paid millions of dollars because he is good at what he does?
Good question though OP. Now let's all speculate who will be leaving the team soon, because that is inevitably what will happen in this thread. Ugh.
|1 week 6 days ago||I also remember stories of||
I also remember stories of defensive players purposefully giving up on RichRod in his first year. I wasn't trying for revisionism, I was trying to say that his defense was not as bad as MSU's his first two years, and we all know how their defense has turned out. No, RichRod's defense wasn't great while here, but it wasn't 109th every year either. Given ex-players disassociating with the program and the few players that did stick with the team giving up on him, I'd say the revisionism is of those who think RichRod just decided defense wasn't important. I swear there are so many new people on this site that no one remembers "decimated defense." Yes, RichRod took over a talented defense. And then it wasn't talented because of attrition and Lloyd forgetting to recruit defense at the end of his career
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Unless you think Jim Harbaugh||
Unless you think Jim Harbaugh is a bad coach, winning and losing has a lot to do with support from the top down. Harbaugh went to 3 straight NFC championship games and then, after rumors of him not getting along with management get out, misses the playoffs and loses to the worst team in the league, giving them their 2nd win of the season at the time. I am a firm believer that even if RichRod's defense was better, the lack of support would have doomed him. How is this for a stat-we had a better defense than Michigan state in RichRod's first two years here. It's amazing what losing all your upperclassmen does to your defense. Kinda like what losing all your upperclassmen on offense would do (see-record in 2008).
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Well, you responded to||
Well, you responded to someone saying money isn't everything. He said that because a few people are saying it is fine to kick hoke while he is down because he got money on the way out and was a bad coach. Most people hold hoke in high regard because he was our coach and represented the school well. If you want to be excited about coaches not here anymore who weren't good because you have that standard, be my guest. I'm sorry your standards are "need to win games or I don't like you."
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Since you no doubt have a job||
Since you no doubt have a job paying millions at your dream company, I'm sure you know exactly what it feels like to be fired, only to not make that much at your next job. I'm sure you would actually be quite happy to be fired from your dream job because, hey, they gave you money when they fired you. Some people in this thread are fucking dicks. "Lol, fuck hoke, we paid him money and fired him, he should be happy and excited for failing at the thing he loves the most because money is the only thing anyone should care about."
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I loved our championship game||
I loved our championship game run, but I liked the next year better. Winning the B10 by 3 games shows our team was far and away the best team last year and that is much better than a single elimination tournament in my opinion. March madness is fun to watch, but the best teams show they have it all year long. I'd much rather have a B10 banner than a final four banner that led to a 20 point blowout
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Final four does not equal||
Final four does not equal great team. Final four equals great match ups. MSU put it together at the end of the year, but they weren't a top 25 team this year. Their best games were near losses to good teams and a victory against OSU. They beat Maryland in the B10 tourney, but that was when they were clicking at the end of the season. They had as many bad losses as they did good wins. They were decent, but they are way too high in this poll
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I still haven't figured out||
I still haven't figured out why anyone thinks freshmen will contribute right away in east Lansing. if Izzo has anyone besides Davis to play (which he does), he isn't going to start until the end of the year. Since Izzo has 2 serviceable big men, I don't know if he will start next year. My prediction is Costello and the other big (shilling?) start and Davis is slowly worked into minutes.

Why are you going off college starts? I thought you had in depth analysis on his high school tape?
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||Don't worry, it isn't a||
Don't worry, it isn't a personal attack on you. I just stated an opinion that based on your posting history that you are really stupid. You don't deserve to take up a spot on this board you're so awful. I mean, look at your high school tape. You obviously can't form an argument and you most certainly have no idea what you are talking about.
Also, you're not an actual fan, you're a troll. You are a miserable human being who makes your assumptions off high school tape (for Morris) and think that a couple starts as a true freshman and sophomore is enough to justify your hate filled stupidity. Then you go on to mention that Malzone is much better, all the while having never actually faced a college defense. Your schtick is old. You think you are bringing something to the board but you're not. No insight. No insider information. The site would be better if you never posted another thought. Go root for another team because you're a prick.

One of the worst arguments I've ever seen on this board. Blanket statement about posters on this site stating Harbaugh wasn't a true michigan man means Auerbach is correct about Shane Morris. Awesome.

I fucking hate you. Please be a fan of another team. You are a horrible human being

I can't believe in the offseason for both football and basketball, people want to talk about the biggest sporting event of the college basketball season, even though it doesn't pertain to this year's team, only last year's. I, too, will be a condescending prick about this thread
