If Spike or Rahk gets the foul trouble autobench, I'd much rather have Walton at 80% than a healthy Dakich.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Sorry, but||
Even with a full(ish) roster, I just don't see any way that we hold them under 1.3 PPP. But nevermind the final score; if we can string together just three consecutive offensive possessions featuring crisp, purposeful ball movement, then I will be giddy with the thrill of moral victory.

that the Eastern Conference looks weak? Why, because then people might ask your opinion on the up vs down effects of gravity on an earth-sized planet?

How deep are the bite-marks on that person's tongue?
"Oh, Hi! So you wanna go with that look again... Awesome... Yeah, You look great!"

49ers fan, so I've seen a lot of his offense over the past four years. The difference in production before vs after the departure of Delanie Walker was significant. Can't wait to see what he does with Butt and Bunting.

So similar in theme, yet so different in effect.

Holy poop now I'm scared! If we don't get Harbaugh, Wiscy could steal our consolation prize! Commence panic!!!

"One lucky shot deserves another," nice little jab at Carmelo's banked-in 3 to tie the game at 100.

I realize this article tends to support our hopes of JH coming to Ann Arbor, so we aren't supposed to examine it too closely, but it's a pretty schlocky collection of conjecture, innuendo, and presumed conventional wisdom without any corroborating evidenced whatsoever.
"The Niners also knew that Harbaugh was not a long-term answer. He might last three years, but he could last four or five. However, he was not going to last eight years or more because of his personality."
"He also doesn’t demonstrate an adult attitude when working with his superiors. He rubs them the wrong way and that’s why they would have traded him to Cleveland last offseason if they could have worked the deal"
He’s just too difficult for all parties to live with.
He can coach like few others in the league, but he’s too nasty to live with.
Some or all of the above may very well be true, but I don't trust Steve Silverman as an authoritative source on any of it.

For making me laugh on a night when laughter seemed impossible.
No matter how dark tonight may be, I believe Michigan will rise again. Go Blue.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||The thing I don't get||
I really don't understand the specifics of how the boycott would hurt the players. The way I see it, it could play out in one of two ways.
A: The players realize that the boycott is aimed at Brandon, and they know that the students, alumni, and other fans still support them, so although they probably won't be overjoyed about all the empty seats at kickoff, they still understand the big picture.
B: The players have fully bought into an "us against the world" mentality, and are determined to band together and prove the haters wrong, in which case the empty seats should reinforce that mentality and add fuel to their fire.
Either way, we're talking about some of the most talented young football players in the country, as evidenced by the fact that most of them received scholarship offers from multiple top-25 programs. Therefore, I have a hard time believing that a boycott would have any meaningful impact on their overall performance, and if it does, I think that says far more about the coaching staff's ability to prepare them than it does about how fans should behave.

We should all wave tiny flags.

Does your friend have any idea why, if suggestions of dischord between Harbaugh and Baalke and/or the players are such horsepucky, they've been so persistent? Rumors of locker room/front office strife have been trickling out since the 49ers started 1-2 last year, and the frequency with which Harbaugh and Baalke publically professed their mutual admiration during the offseason is suspicious in a "methinks they doth protest too much" sort of way.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||As a 49ers fan who's watched||
As a 49ers fan who's watched Harbaugh run MANBALL fairly effectively for the last three years, I think the fault lies not so much in the philosophy, but more in the man who has utterly failed to teach said philosophy.
Not that I'm a huge advocate of MANBALL, but it can be effective when the coaching staff is marginally adequate.

I almost wish Hoke was as blatantly douchey as Lane Kiffin, just so the inevitable midseason firing would actually feel good.
But the more I think about it, in terms of media/public relations, he is pretty douchey...

Is Charlie Blockham based on you? Or are you based on Charlie Blockham?

I like how they only shot 14/28 from downtown, lulling the next opponent into a false sense of security.

I don't have many MGoPoints, and what with the way the new point system works, I've always managed to resist the impulse to neg people, even when they deserve it. But you, sir, have earned my first ever downvote. Congratulations.

Fantastic game, contributions from everyone, and Spike is starting to hit his postseason form. B1G Champs!

B1G champs! Great team effort, and Spike is starting to hit his postseason form! The only question now is who do we see first - Kate Upton or Muppets?

Great team effort! B1G Champs! I demand Muppets!
|1 year 13 weeks ago||In terms of value to his||
In terms of value to his team, Pettaway deserves consideration. It seems crazy, but Nebraska has beaten every B1G team except Michigan, Iowa, and Wisconsin, who they don't play until the regular season finale. Without Pettaway, there's no way they have anything close to 8 conference wins.
However, Stauskas, as noted above, is far more efficient, and IMO he's solidly ahead of Pettaway in the POY race.

I get what you're saying, and I definitely agree that at-risk kids deserve a chance to prove themselves. However, I don't agree with Foote's implicit claim that kids who have options other than a Michigan football scholarship will be less motivated to perfrom on the football field.
I also don't believe that Foote was referring to the fallback of a UM degree when he said "Plan B." It seemed to me he was referring to other schools who would offer scholarships without being as stringent as UM would be about meeting academic standards.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||No Plan B?||
I don't understand what Foote is saying when he says recruits who have a "Plan B" are inherently inferior. What constitutes a legitimate Plan B? Is MSU a Plan B? Should we be chasing guys who are too "ghetto" or "violent" for Pat (60 minutes of unnecessary roughness) Narduzzi?

|1 year 16 weeks ago||Common usage indeed||
One hundred years ago, calling someone gay meant that person was happy and carefree. Now, thanks to common usage, it means homosexual. I don't know how long ago "begs the question" was first used by someone who meant "raises the question," but at this point "begs the question" is almost universally used, and understood, to mean "raises the question." Those few holdouts who insist on sticking to the original definition should stop being such pre-Madonnas, IMO.

But he's not smooth. Even when he's on, he looks herky-jerky. From what I've seen, he's definitely getting better, but it's still hard to watch him drive the lane and not see a turnover waiting to happen. That being said, he pulls someting out of nothing more often than not, and I'm still fairly confident that we still haven't seen him realize his full potential.

Box score says,,, 19 pts on 7 FGAs, 5 reb, 4 ast, 1 TO... I can't wait to see what he can do when tournament time rolls around.
