That franchise hasn't made a wise or proactive decision in 55 years...who honestly believes that they will get this one right?
|2 years 31 weeks ago||returner||
Yeah I see him as a Logan type...and that's not so bad. He can make a pretty good living returning kicks. And he certainly would be an upgrade over Logan.
|6 years 15 weeks ago||a sad day||
I was 14 in 1976. My parents announced they were getting a divorce that spring, and that summer was really going to suck, and I needed a diversion or two to get me through it all. Fidrych WAS that diversion. I will never forget going to Tiger Stadium with my grandfather on a Saturday afternoon and beating Cleveland (I believe), in front of about 48,000 or so. It was electric there, and so was he. I only wish I could have a chance to meet him in person and tell him all of this.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||old and young...||
I'm 47...young enough to enjoy a good Papa Roach's "Lifeline", old enough to consider the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated" a solid classic.
|6 years 18 weeks ago||It was quite lopsided on the calls...||
but it was a great season, nonetheless. Maybe next year, when the program makes the progression from bubble team to legitimate contender, we'll get those calls.
In any case, it is cool to see Michigan basketball relevant again.
|6 years 19 weeks ago||Yeah, later tonight||
They usually have the times so that they are in the Monday morning newspapers, at least that's the way it's been historically.
Because it's paired with a #2-#15 game, it's the earlier of the two; so it will either be early Thursday afternoon, or early Thursday evening.
|6 years 19 weeks ago||Lunardi...||
...has us pegged as a #10 seed in the West, playing #7 Texas. He seems pretty confident about getting in.
As has been noted, he got all 65 last year. Until he has a "bad" year, I'll listen to him before anyone else.
|6 years 19 weeks ago||At least...||
...Memphis seems to be taking care of one issue for us. They were up by 22 the last I checked.
|6 years 22 weeks ago||Watch what the people sitting in front are doing...||
...if they stand, you stand. That way, when Grandpa and Grandma say something to you, you can just turn and say, "It's them, not me. Take your fiber pill and chill out".
You need to learn to deal with the wine and cheese crowd.
|6 years 22 weeks ago||Nothing...||
...that Harris did, no matter what his stats may or may not say, would make me think he should win an award for being the top college b-ball player in the country. If he did, then the NBA's future is in the toilet. Even a reasonable person would not likely put Harris in the top 10 in the nation.
Let's make this clear: No matter what, or how many, names may be on the list, there are "really" only 3, 4, or 5 names that are relevant concerning this subject. And, believe me, none of them are playing in the Big 10.
|6 years 22 weeks ago||Hey Jerard...||
...excuse me while I stick a rusty pair of pliers into my ass hole and pull one of my kidneys.
Please find a hobby.
|6 years 22 weeks ago||well, let's review...||
...Beilein benches Harris, for reasons that may never be fully explained (because, maybe, it's none of our damn business). Mr. Harris responds by throwing down 27 on the #16 team in the country.
Seeing as though Coach Beilein probably has forgotten more about basketball than any of us wannabes will ever know, I would trust that he made the right move.
No matter what the Freep, or any of us, would or should say.
|6 years 22 weeks ago||Pretend...||
that you are a bank. Then go to Congress. They'll print you a couple of tickets.
There you go.
|6 years 22 weeks ago||Nice title...||
...lock the doors, people.
|6 years 22 weeks ago||Not much longer||
It's obvious we can no longer hang our tourney chances on beating those guys. Unfortunately, it's not where you start, it's where you finish.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||Three loudest times at the Big House (for me, anyway)||
3. The OT game w/MSU.
2. Harbaugh's 80-ish TD bomb to Kolesar vs. tOSU in '85.
1. Desmond's punt return vs. tOSU in '91. I thought that place was gonna crumble that day.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||yeah, but nothing||
Yeah, but nothing. I heard Mallett could throw 60 yards sitting on his ass...while reading the Free Press.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||As I understand it...||
...Obama is recruiting him for Secretary of Commerce. Apparently, he admires Mr. Brown's ability to make quick, firm decisions.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||Bilas...||
...may not necessarily be a "Duke apologist", but he sure as hell is an ACC apologist. He has actually been called on it by some of his peers.
And, no, he will not be calling for Coach K to get control of his team. He is nothing more than a douche.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||nah||
This dude has to have his coach advertise him to D-I programs. It'll never work out.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||still...||
...taking the under.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||Nope||
|6 years 25 weeks ago||I thought||
I thought the all whites were worn in the early to mid-70's, not the 80's. If I'm wrong, then it's my bad.
But the all whites were pretty cool, and could be again.
|6 years 25 weeks ago||If my memory is not failing...||
...did we not go through all of this around this time last year?
|6 years 25 weeks ago||GVSU is different||
That program is becoming in a class by itself. It is simply a D II football factory, if there's such a thing. One look at their record in the last decade would say as such.
|6 years 25 weeks ago||Something tells me...||
...that the SEC will return the favor to him in the very near future. Kiffin might want to build bridges before he burns them down.
I'm sure this ain't going well amongst the "good ol' boys" down there.
|6 years 25 weeks ago||So, by the Freep's logic...||
...it would be alright if U-M went 3-9 every year, as long as we recruited primarily from Michigan. Nobody from the Freep would criticize RRod, or demand a change, and nothing negative would ever be written again.
|6 years 26 weeks ago||Oh, woe...||
After reading that article, I must say, "We cannot compete, we cannot compete, we cannot compete...". I hand my worthiness to the mighty Dantonio.
|6 years 26 weeks ago||Sounds to me||
Sounds to me like he took the easy way out, almost like he was looking for a reason to get the hell out of there. And he found it.
Good riddance. And, given his obvious lack of actual talent, good luck finding work in this economy.
|6 years 27 weeks ago||Clear Channel||
I also heard, from another station owned by Clear (not a sports station), that they fired about 7% of their staff, mostly from sports stations that they own. Had to be a "bottom-line" decision.
It was also said that Clear decided to do it on Tuesday because of the inaugeration dominating the news, so it would go largely unnoticed by the media.
