I though there was a coaching update and it wasn't good. I have a mix of relief and annoyance.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I live in Southwest Ohio||
Most will have fun rubbing it in. You will get a lot of verbal jibes. Probably people shouting O-H at you in an annoying fashon, and get mock angry when you don't complete it. They will tell you they wish Hoke will always be Michigan's coach, and/or wonder why you don't root for a good team. Unless they are drunk, that is all it will be. Think of that bully in High School, then give him a college education. Also, a huge portion of fans will be fat. If you smell a lot of beer on their breath, probably Natty light, move on as fast as possible.
In the unlikely event Michigan wins, hide your Michigan gear under something and walk like you are angry. Very few people are worse then an upset buckeye looking for something or someone to take out their anger on. Unless you do want to fight a whole crowd, just to see what it is like.

I saved $600 on a play set for the kids. Got the second last one.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||A Sad but appropriate ending at home||
I tried to be mad. That seems like the response I normally have after games like this. I tried to, but I was not. I was just sad. This game seems to typify Hokes tenure here. A game full of almosts, should haves, and unfulfilled promise.
I feel sad for the seniors. I really do. I feel like someone should apologize to them. They are trying their best, and doing what they are told. They should be better, and I don’t feel it is their fault. I hope that someone in the NFL will look at them and see their potential and give them a change to prove themselves.
As for the rest of the team, I hope that who ever replaces Hoke will be just as good of a guy, but will prepare them better for games. These players deserve it.

Could I play Quarterback if there is a blowout?

I wish I could give you a +2. One for "Well Played" and +1 for using such a good Grandpa reference. It is my second favorite behind "Here comes 2" while watching a projector countdown. I still say that to myself on the rare ocassion when I see one myself.

Give me two star athletes and a coach who can develop talent over bringing in top talent who never are improve much.

Mr. Hoke: Mr. And Mrs. Smith, Johnny is working really hard in class, has a great attitude, but he struggles with his work. He is not very good at Math.
Mr. And Mrs. Smith: As the Math teacher, is there anything you can recommend for us to practice with him at home so he can be better?
Mr. Hoke: You can help him get better at Math.

He is probably taking the opportunity to have it taken now while he is still AD. I wonder if it is for his personal use or to put on his resume?

I concur extirely with your responce. That is almost exactly where I am now. But mostly, I just wanted to say your avatar is awsome.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||It is entertainment||
I used to be too invested in Michigan football. It would ruin my weekend if they lost. I have thrown remotes, shouted at the tv, even yelled at my kids because Michigan was loosing. I did this until Utah. My 5 year old daughter saw my scowl, asked what was wrong, and I told her. She replied, "That's okay. Sometimes you win. Sometime you loose. You should just have fun". Now, I watch the games the same way I watch a movie. It may be good, it might suck, but it has no relevance to anything else. I still wear my Michigan stuff and passing comments from friends or strangers are just comments. I have started to make jokes myself. This may be the wrong place to admit this became if you are here it means you care alot, but that is where I am now.

Just thought people could use some levity around here right now.
When sitting with my five year old daughter watching the game she told me, "It's alright daddy, some times you win and sometimes you loose." It put this whole situation into perspective for me. Thought I would share for those who enjoy this type of humor. I know it is not for everyone.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||White might blend in||
Wearing white might blend in and look like there are a lot of psu fans. We should wear another color that stands out when they show the crowd. While wearing red for coke might send the wrong message, and green maybe for mountain dew would be fun. However, I would not want to wear either rival colors. If people came to the game dresses all in black that might be something worth noticing.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Circus||
I am glad somebody mentioned apathy. I am taking my family to the circus today and plan on watching the game when I get home. But there is a part of me that wants to wait and check the final score to see if the game is worth watching.

I heard from a reliable source that we are going to get both John and Jim who are going to co-coach. They will be paid $5 million each and Mattison will stick around to continue to be the defensive coordinator. Jim will singlehandedly improve offensive line play by slapping players enthusiastic on the back.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||I would say over the last four years, the most||
I would say over the last four years, the most consistent thing about the offense is it's inconsistency. I believe a lot of people placed the blame on Borges, and thought we would be better with anyone but him. We are finding out this is not the case and it can become a program issue. I still hope they can turn it aroundm
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Time is running out||
As a defensive guy I believe Brady's primary offensive strategy is they should keep their the defense off the field. It was interesting to read about time of possession not being a high priority because everything that has been done to this point seems like they want to use as much of the clock as possible.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Rutgers rating scale||
Is there any way we could get a fear rating scale for Rutgers using the Rugrats, possibly ranging from Chuckie to Reptar? Would love to see what your sense of humor would come up with.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||30-28 Michigan||
Michigan wins in the final few seconds again and I am too pumped up to sleep for too long.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||I like It||
Reminds me of my favorite author, Terry Pratchett.
|16 weeks 1 day 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.

|24 weeks 6 days ago||Best available||
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.

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.
|34 weeks 2 hours 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...
|38 weeks 1 day 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.
|41 weeks 1 day 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.

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.

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.
