Reminds me of my favorite author, Terry Pratchett.
|5 days 18 hours ago||I think your number 4 point||
I think your number 4 point is probably the most accurate. With the sub package for each formation Borges might have well held up a sign that said what play is going to be run, then watch as 11 defenders swarm to the ball and complain about execution. Just having the defense guess about the play will cause an improvement with blocking.

I was watching the draft on my iPad while putting the kids to bed. Chad Ford on espn has had Gary Harris as the best SG available for the last 12 picks and counting. Great that Nik was drafted before any other big 10 players. Two top ten players in two years is great.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||When Dawkins blows up||
I am looking forward to Dawkins getting great coaching and blowing up next year. Then the Dawkins committing to Michigan over Dayton can be the new LeVert committed to M over Ohio overused talking point.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Punch Out||
Personally, while I love contra (and just got it on the ipad a few days ago) I would love to see Mike Tyson's punchout on the big screen. But with a slight twist. The fighters should be wearing big ten team helmets.
King Hipoo has Wiscinson and so on...
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Gif Request, if you take requests||
All of the above are awsome, but I would really like a Gif of the elderly lady joining in during the I can't turn you loose dance. (Montage before 2:17 near end of game.) The look on her husbands face is priceless.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Impressive||
I have been so impressed with the coaching job John Beilein and his staff did this year. If you think about how they started the year to how they finished it, it does not supprise me at all that they won the big ten outright. The growth is evident in players like Irving and Walton.
I could not help but watch Illinois and ponder how much better Nnanna Eqwu might be if he was coached by this staff. Congradulation to the team and I am looking forward to the turnament.

I think there should be an annual Jordan Morgan award. It would be given to the player with the most grit.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||I was worried I was going to||
I was worried I was going to have to root for Ohio when they played MSU. Now I can go back to rooting for an earthquake to swallow both teams.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||check||
I hope Michigan can get to the line with enough time to possibly check into another play. I am looking forward to a Coach Nuss chess match.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Deep Breath?||
This could be 20/20 hindsight but watching the gif, it looks like he is nervous. He takes a deep breath and then exhales. I did the same thing while standing next to my couch for the last 30 seconds of the game.
|31 weeks 20 hours ago||That was tried on the first||
That was tried on the first sign, but it was too big to fit. It was simplified to "Win the game" with the rest implied because this is Michigan ferGodsakes.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||I think you mean after||
I think you mean after Uconn, the playbook got dumb.
It was finally better against OSU. I will be remembering Devin for ND and Ohio as a demonstration of his talent, not when Borges decided to run 1 play each out of 40 different formations.
Most of Gardner's production has been based on play calling and OL play, possitive or negative.
I thought he did an amazing job, and can't wait to see him play next year.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Mime and Michigan||
There is a trapped in a box joke in there somewhere but I can't find it. Any help?
|34 weeks 13 min ago||Hopefully||
With Peppers in the secondary, I really hope Michigan's defense return to aggressive and spirited.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||They went with Power Rangers because Voltron Got Served||
|34 weeks 6 days ago||I completely agree but...||
I agree with everything you said, but I am also going to be watching those two closely to see how much they are progressing. I beleive talent is exponential, and next year or the year after I hope they have developed enough of their high level talent to be great. We have witnessed what has been done with good talent, and now with several elete players.......?

poop. just poop.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Please, for the sake of my heart...||
2013 has me mostly screamed out. I would love to see a comfortable victory.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||I think that we need to ask||
I think that we need to ask "Do we have good basketball coaches?" I know I am carrying over the football season, but I trust these coaches and they will teach the freshmen how to get better. I still think Michigan will cause trouble in the tournament, i just hope it doesnt take them too long to figure everything out.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||So many close losses||
I, for one, am looking forward to/hopeful of a future when Michigan wins games like these consistently instead of the tough Maxwell Smart losses.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||Quick brain, come up||
I was thinking the same thing. Quick brain, come up with something interesting and witty to say........
|37 weeks 6 days ago||My sources tell me that||
My sources tell me that Peppers wants to visit Alabama as a reference point to convince Hand to reevaluate his commitment there. And by sources I mean my immagination.
|38 weeks 15 hours ago||I am looking forward to one more game.||
I don't care what anyone one else says. This is the game Michigan earned, and I hope they can do well against an opponent who will be psyched to play a team with so much tradition. I also think its great that the game is not in one of the traditional locations M has repeatedly visited over the years.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||I would equate concern||
I would equate concern trolling with that lady at the park (or church, school, etc) who butts in to give parenting advice while her own kid is eating glue and stealing a twenty from a strangers purse.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Wouldn't you like to keep Peppers too||
I found it interesting that the reason Peppers was interested in looking around was because he was not sure Hoke would be around next year.

i thought ut was funny, and cathartic. you're just grumpy.
|42 weeks 1 hour ago||When i get overly frustrated||
When i get overly frustrated i make really inappropriate jokes. like how i concocted a pretend dream/fake borges interview on the board in which borges admitted to being a spy and deliberately calling bad plays to ruin the season. someone did not appreciate that because i can no longer find my satire post
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Can we wait that long?||
I know it sucks now, but if we can wait a few years, Michigan could have a o line consisting of 3 seniors and 2 juniors instead of freshmen. They will all have at least thee years of valuable experience playing the line, which is more intricate and complicated than "push that guy over there." They will also have two top rated running backs in the country.
I have not been a huge fan of Borges and his playcalling, and have questioned the coaching ability of those involved with the offense, but I can completely see what the coaches are saying about being young. Unfortunatly, I think they will still be bad next year, show improvement in '15, and be good then next year, and be great from then onwards if Hoke can keep up his recruiting pace.
Personally, I hope they get that chance.
|43 weeks 1 day ago||I disagree. Yes, or o line||
I disagree. Yes, or o line sucked and could only give Gardner a few seconds to throw. If that is the case throw some 5 yard passes, maybe 7 or 10. WR were open, but there was no time to throw. So change the game plan and stop complaining about execution.
Please ask this question furring press conference: why did you wait until 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter to start throwing shorter routs?
