|1 week 5 days ago||Me too.||
Title alone is worth +1. It may actually be the best title for a thread I've seen on this site. Hopefully that changes in a little over a week when someone posts a thread titled "Michigan Big Ten Champion Gear."
|4 weeks 2 days ago||MSU has more talent,||
but I guarantee Rutgers is more mentally prepared/fired up for this game. MSU is reeling, and Ash will be able to sell "results" to his team if they win this game. It makes my little Grinch heart grow two sizes to be able to genuinely post this sentiment.

Of course, I was in such a great mood, everything and everyone seemed awesome to me. So, in what little I heard him say, he seemed like a nice guy. Didn't know much about sports, as it sounded like his buddy was trying to explain to him what point spreads were at one point. He definitely seemed rightfully proud of his work and thought it was cool. Or, at least, knew that there are some people who would think it's cool. Probably how I'd feel if I met a non-football celebrity.
When we left, I really wanted to thank him for his work, but knew I'd come off as sounding a little creepy so I didn't.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||My cool story bro:||
I took the Mrs out to breakfast yesterday and sat right next to one of the gentlemen who built that. I tried not to listen to the conversation he was having, but couldn't help it. Apparently, he had to fix two lights on it Friday. Also, he was told "make sure it's perfect, because Paul's coming home."
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Well said.||
I'm not a fan of the term "Little Brother," but it is far too accurate to avoid using.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed.||
So the highlight of MSUs season is losing by two scores at home to their instate rival because that rival is nationally elite.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||+1 for being drunk||
and still awake at 2:30 am. I got drunk last week during the Illinois game and fell asleep by 8:30.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Agre completely||
I couldn't stop laughing after I read why he went for two. Before they went for it, I started thinking of all the possibilities as to why anyone would do that from a game theory standpoint. I eventually got to the point of "that's simply a mistake." What if we, somehow, ran it back for 2?
To hear after the game that he did it out of spite makes me ecstatic.
We just played against a coach that hates us so much, he let spite drive his final decision of the game instead of sound game theory. If I were a Spartan fan, I would be livid.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Taking the dog for a run||
in a minute with the Pokemon app open on my phone to track distance for my daughter's game. Then taking her to a STEAM something-or-other that's nearby. Following that, my wife, much to her chagrin, has to go bridesmaid dress shopping. I'll take the kiddo to a buddy's house and he and I will watch the game while our collective children shoot nerf darts at us. There will be multiple times the kids catch us almost swearing and they will taunt us with said info.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||For the first time in a very long time,||
we have the edge on them in virtually every tangible/intangible category including talent, coaching and mental toughness/intensity. I understand why some people are concerned about this game, but there hasn't been a bigger delta in this rivalry in decades.
We will bury them Saturday. After, we will not apologize for it.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I agree it would be interesting,||
but based on how offenses have evolved over the past 20 years, I don't think it would be easy to make a direct comparison. Defenses have SO many more types of offenses to stop now. Or, at least, the differences in offensive ideology require such specific skill sets to be stopped. Even more of an argument for how Michigan's defense is having a truly historic season.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Not my comment,||
but someone here on the board recently posted something like: "the highlight for them this season will be watching that highlight from last season."
I wish I could remember who said that to give them the appropriate credit.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||That is the single reason why we will run up the score||
on them if we have a chance. I can totally see the postgame press conference where Harbaugh is asked why he went for two.
I keep imaging his response being something like: "I remember a while ago when we lost a real tough game. A real tough one. We had to watch the opposing team taunt our students and then one of the coaches taunted our fans. He kept saying 'Where are all the Wolverines at?!?!"
"Well (motions over his shoulder as if to point to a scoreboard), I don't think anyone is going to wonder where the Wolverines were at today."
|7 weeks 3 days ago||You are totally right about||
MSU always playing above expectation in this game. However, we finally have a coach that will ensure we are not outschemed and also not intensity deficient in this game.
It feels like it has been a very long time since we could say that.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I felt at the time that the loss to Rutgers||
in 2014 may have been Hoke's death knell.
Insert Morpheus meme, fate is not without a sense of irony and all your recruits are belong to us.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||+1 OP||
No matter how awesome we are, it's always a great idea to pay homage to the gods of bowl eligibility.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Well done.||
You may not have made the difference in him choosing Michigan, but you certainly could have helped contribute to him looking elsewhere if you would have handled the situation in a poor fashion. That's about as much influence that you could have legally had in a situation with a recruit. Again, well done.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||"Fuck cancer"||
is a phrase I say or think everyday. I work in oncology and am regularly blown away by the strength and determination of those who fight this battle. We are living in an age of dynamic proliferation of antineoplastic therapies, both cytotoxic and immunologic. I am confident that it is only a matter of time before this irredeemable affliction is neutralized. Good luck to your wife. With the strength she obviously possesses to continue this fight, however, she needs no luck.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||"Where are all the Wolverines?!?!"||
After his team taunted our student section, he said that to our fans at the tunnel. Clearly, you saw the same clip of it that I did. That's the reason why, if we have the opportunity, we are going to run the score up against him every chance we get.
Press: "Was that a statement game?"
JH: "I once heard someone ask about where the Wolverines were at. Well (points over shoulder as if to acknowledge a scoreboard), I think we all know where they where just at."
|11 weeks 9 hours ago||It's like the wave at a game.||
We are the next section and need to keep it going. After people downstream see what's happening, the wave grows larger.
We don't need 100,000 people to turn their backs this weekend. We just need enough to be noticed.
|11 weeks 9 hours ago||That would be fantastic.||
I would be cool with just permanently changing it to "Joe Knew!" Because, despite what James Franklin would prefer, I will never "get over it."
|11 weeks 2 days ago||You appeared to have entered||
a logic Mobius strip. The only way out is for us to beat MSU.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Evolving||
If last season is an indicator, our gameplans and tactics will continue to evolve. I feel defensively more so than last year with Brown as DC. Colorado's QB was awesome yesterday before he got injured, but besides that perfect deep ball he threw in the 3rd quarter, it felt like the D had figured things out.
Our's team personality/character had a level-up game yesterday against a solid-to-good Colorado team. This may be the most important thing to come out of the pre-conference schedule. Our team now knows what it's like to get punched in the mouth. They also know they can respond to the adversity.
|14 weeks 9 hours ago||Usually when you hear that a walk-on is making||
some noise, that isn't a great thing. But with so much depth at QB, I'm utterly shocked and impressed to hear that Moores is doing that. Good for him and even better for our team/QBs - meritocracy.
|15 weeks 3 hours ago||I love these kinds of articles.||
The more I learn about football, the more I realize how little I understand.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I happened to stop by the Mden yesterday||
and stumbled into a pair. I've never had a pair of Jordan's and thought it would be cool (although ridiculous at the same time given my age of 38). I didn't realized how much of a secondary market there was until I got home and started looking stuff up. People are listing these for a lot of money on Ebay. What's the strategy in trying to resell these. As much as I like them, I would happily trade them for enough money to buy airfare to one of Michigan's bowl games this year.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Great post.||
Based on when you created your account and the lack of points you have (I know, don't mention them), I'm going to have to assume you don't post that often. However, after reading such a quality post, I'm going to have to ask that you write more frequently.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I was in the same situation.||
Medically speaking, getting a vasectomy is the best option for the team. Nothing is 100%, but that procedure is pretty darn close. Side effects are much less problematic, which is why it's the right choice, IMO (vs ectopic pregnancies, adhesions, more complicated perioperative infectious course if present).
Agree with the sentiment, though, that you need to make sure the procedure is successful. Have them check to make sure the safety is "on" before you get back into the swing of things.
When I had mine, my MD was a Michigan grad and knew that I was a big fan. He asked me to talk about the upcoming season during the procedure to take my mind off of it. The only time I experienced discomfort was when I mentioned Borgess. I should have taken that as a sign.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||My wife and I are celebrating||
our tenth anniversary today. Yesterday, we went to the Tigers game and I put a corny love message on the Jumbotron which she loved. Her stoic dad even gave me praise which is rare.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||+1 and +1||
Your first post gave great information. Your second post was pleasant and constructive in explaining your opinion
