I think so too even though most don't agree.
But hey, taters gonna tate.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I'm a Lions fan. But I've||
I'm a Lions fan. But I've always had this idea that a lawyer could get a lot of money by gathering a bunch ex-Lions players together and filing a class action lawsuit against the Lions for ruining their careers...or at least for money they lost from endorsements, etc because they played for Detroit!!
If anyone runs with this idea and gets rich...give me a cut?
At any rate, incredible loyalty Jason for sticking with us.

Say it ain't so! I was really hoping the 2nd map meant that even E Lansing has switched allegiances.

But was it out of a total lack of ability to control his emotions and actions?
Cause that's what I saw on that video happening multiple times.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I played a contact sport. I||
I played a contact sport. I think it's horrible.
Part of what I love about Beilein and Hoke is they seem to be so consistent in their ability to control themselves and see the bigger picture of life. And I love that their aim is to raise up not just athletes, but quality men, husbands, fathers. Sometimes that means being firm and getting in people's faces. But it is clear this dude is not in control of himself. Glad the student athletes at Michigan have better role models to be shaped by.

I live in England and watch the games on espnplayer.com. Other option is to find a friend with a slingbox (or buy one for a friend like I did!) and watch their tv from your computer.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||thanks. couldn't have said||
thanks. couldn't have said it better. I think this is what has made watching this team so difficult. You know they are better than this, but so often we were all left trying to find answers after a stupid loss. The answers were comforting for a couple days, but after so many of these you start to think: "Good teams don't make this many excuses." Then, 'Oh no! Maybe they really are not a good team."
I don't know anymore. All I have left is blind homerism filling out my bracket and putting them into the Final Four.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Bacari Caption contest||
We've got to have a contest to change the caption of the pic with all the coaches standing together...though I may be missing the full extent of the Walter White joke.
But Look at Bacari's face! Wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that death stare.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||You can't take credit||
You're not going to try and take credit for this are you? We've always believed that even the sea turtles in Australia know that Ohio Sucks.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||just tired||
for some reason the Wisconsin loss is still harder to get past than last night's for me. I think the guys were just plain tired. They went down by 6-8 early and didn't have the emotional or physical reserves to fight back. We can talk about all the numbers and statistics we want...but there's also the reality of hotel rooms, bus rides, plane flights, away crowds and some fairly decent teams stacked back to back to back.
I think that accounts for the lack of hustle, driving to the bucket, etc, etc.
Let's be careful about writing these guys off before we see how the next couple of weeks go.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||offense||
why does our 'behind by 20 points offense' spend as much time running out the shot clock behind the arc as our ahead by 5 offense????? It didn't work when we were ahead at Wiscy and it doesn't work now!
|14 weeks 4 days ago||me too...||
"I thought I'd be better by now; I'm not." Sounds like it's the same for everyone...but I'm surprised that for most on the board the lingering emotions are aimed at the refs. I didn't like the officiating, but I still felt like Michigan lost the game. Why did we stop running plays with 3.00 left?!?
|14 weeks 6 days ago||nope||
absoultely guarantee we will not beat them at home this year.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||how many more teachable moments...?||
Is it just me or do I feel like I just watched the same last 5 minutes of a game 3 games in a row? in losses like this you look for teachable moments to build on...but how many more games will it take for Burke to run the offense at the end?
|15 weeks 10 hours ago||Irregardless||
I think we should stop this. It's kind of a mute point by now.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||effects of milking...||
so is Nascar an example of where college football could go? I live out of the country now so I'm not sure, but it seems to me after Nascar milked the rise in popularity a few years back and added the Race or the Chase or the Really Real cup you really want to win...people have lost interest.
Again, I may be wrong. Only basing it on the fact I see fewer Nascar t-shirts and scale models in living rooms when I come back now.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Borges Presser?||
sorry if this is a dumb question, but did I miss the Borges presser after the Ohio game? Or do non-head coaches only do pressers during game weeks?
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Gottfried's pregame talk||
Did anyone catch the clip of Gottfried's pregame talk that was aired before tip-off? Did it seem corny too anyone else and some of the mannerisms remind them of Kevin Nealon in Happy Gilmore? "
"Yeah, lot of pressure. You gotta rise above it. You gotta harness in the good energy. Block out the bad. Harness. Energy. Block. Bad. Feel the flow, Happy."
|25 weeks 4 days ago||a little more on the off topic...||
I think you are right that the 'trend becomes clear next year.' That's part of why the Hoke narrative is so intriguing and fun to be a part of. We initially scratch our heads at the hire, then we think it was the best decision in the world, now we worry....and wait.
In hindsight, I know I'm glad about one thing: Harbough did not get hired. I'm not sure it really would have been about The Team, The Team, The Team with him.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||on another positive note||
The Lions didn't lose yesterday either!
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Camera battery dead?||
thanks for the pictures. But I was wondering...did your camera battery die in the second half? I didn't see any frames from the second half where both Denard and Devin were on the field together like in the first half.
would have been good to see a few more of those.
...sorry guys, too soon??

It was going to be short-sleeves weather. So I think it should be fine...
|26 weeks 1 day ago||Devin excitement rising||
Thanks for the post on Thanksgiving, Brian. Did you get time to eat any turkey??
Considering how much stick Brian took after the MInnesota game and not being all 'Devin is the greatest QB in Michigan history'...I think he's been more than fair in his assessment of Gardner in the last couple weeks. Actually it's been fun to see Brian get more and more excited about the QB position for the next year.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||yep...it was a gamble||
I think the bottom line is that Devin at WR looked better than Devin on the Bench for a significant % of the time.
Yes there was a good chance that at some point Denard would get injured and the backup QB would have to come in. But what are the chances that would happen for the remainder of the game against one of our strongest opponents instead of, say, Minnesota? Maybe Bellomy could rescue a win against a lesser opponent and then Devin could switch to QB for the coming week if necessary.
Despite the agonising 'what if's' of the Nebraska game (which are indeed agonising!), it seems like the coaches made the right call in light of team chemistry, what Denard means to the team, putting the best 11 on the field, etc.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||word of the day||
but does Heiko ask the 'word of the day' question? When Borges says, 'there's your word of the day' he looks to the right. When Heiko is asking about the 'play' Borges is looking front and center.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Hoke's response to team culture||
I do get a good chuckle out of how hard Hoke makes the reporters work for answers. And I get the not highlighting Denard above anyone else on Team 133.
But what does everyone make of the 'non-answer' to the question about team culture compared to when Hoke was here before? Is it that Hoke doesn't really think about the culture he's trying to implement because it's just instinctive? Just wants to get out of the presser? Doesn't want to grade himself?
I love the way Hoke leads and would love to hear more of his self-assessment of where he's at.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for posting this!||
It reminded me that it's not all about W's and L's (though I like the W's much better!), but also how exciting it has been to watch Denard play for the Maize and Blue. Hope we get to see him play at least one more time.
