|3 weeks 3 days ago||I can't bring myself to care||
I can't bring myself to care enough to go vote.
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||Maybe that wasn't a||
Maybe that wasn't a dream...... just maybe......
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I'm curious to hear why you||
I'm curious to hear why you think Marvin Robinson will be the starter (or will get so much playing time).
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Margaritas for "Funky Friday"||
Margaritas for "Funky Friday"
|10 weeks 1 day ago||You really don't think this||
You really don't think this is far fetched??
OK. Aside from the silliness of giving up any chance of a B1G tourney title, don't you think that this would be death for UM on the recruiting trail? How does Bielien defend giving up in a conference tournament to recruits and their parents and their coaches?? Maybe Tom Crean, Tom Izzo, Thad Matta, etc. will just let it go and not hammer us with it, constantly, repeatedly, and justifiably. Nah.....
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Now I truly seen it all on||
Now I truly seen it all on this board. Unbelievable.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, so? The statement was||
Yeah, so? The statement was "last time I checked, they have owned our ass." Untrue, unless the last time he checked was three years ago.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Well, they get a week off||
Well, they get a week off before playing us at Crisler.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||We've won 3 of the last 5....||
We've won 3 of the last 5.... not sure that they've "owned our ass"...
|17 weeks 1 day ago||I do vaguely remember||
I do vaguely remember him...
Wasn't he one of the top rated QBs in the country, a five-star to almost every recruiting site, a regular stand-out on the camp and 7 on 7 circuit, a well-known and highly recruited HS player?
Just like Rodney Davis, right? Oh, wait....
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Well, they can't subpoena||
Well, they can't subpoena anyone or compell them to talk with invesitgators. They can't seize phone records or email archives. There is no allegation of a crime in any way as far as I can tell. How exactly would you suggest that a formal investigation proceed? Why would anyone involved agree to talk with anyone involved in that investigation? Why would anyone voluntarily hand over anything to ND's investigators?
I'd love it, as much as the next Michigan fan, if ND was involved in a colossal conspiracy and was found out.... But wishing it is so doesn't make it so.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Nah... now he says he didn't||
Nah... now he says he didn't meet her at a Stanford game, but met her online and only ever interacted with her online and over the phone.
He is either lying now or was lying in the past. I dont' know why he is/was lying. But it seems clear to me that he lied.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||That is great, though I wish||
That is great, though I wish he would have impressed the scouts more during our actual games.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||But now he says he NEVER met||
But now he says he NEVER met her in person, right? This one is a long way from over.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||You mean "dominate" right?||
You mean "dominate" right?
|19 weeks 15 hours ago||Yeah, besause that's how this||
Yeah, besause that's how this "following recruiting" thing works. We don't talk about anyone until and unless they commit somewhere...
|19 weeks 16 hours ago||It is hard to anticipate who||
It is hard to anticipate who will need a redshirt and who will not. Raise your hand if you thought Kalis would redshirt....
|19 weeks 16 hours ago||Since he hasn't committed||
Since he hasn't committed anywhere is he also looking for reasons not to go to all those other places??
|19 weeks 17 hours ago||Agree on the problem, but||
Agree on the problem, but there are two ways of addressing it. You can load up in one class, but that just creates the same problem when these guys graduate.
The other way is to take 2-3 years and have slightly large classes each year to spread out the sholarships. That way you don't have the same problem in 4-5 years.
Each method has pitfalls, but it isn't crazy to prefer the second method, and people suggesting we go that route are not stupid.
|19 weeks 17 hours ago||Hey guys.... Derrick Green is||
Hey guys.... Derrick Green is a Toledo lean. Seriously!
There. Now there is a website claiming that Green is a Toledo lean. Let's see if the Auburn site starts to melt down.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Pain||
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Well, I think we are the home||
Well, I think we are the home team against SC, which means we chose to wear these as the home team, which means that these ARE our home uniforms for this game, which means that we've now screwed with the HOME UNIFORMS!!!!! AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!! EVERYONE PANIC!!!!
|26 weeks 17 hours ago||You think the Miami stuff is||
You think the Miami stuff is equivalent to getting cream cheese on a bagel? You haven't been paying attention, obviously.
|26 weeks 17 hours ago||You can't, on the one hand,||
You can't, on the one hand, crticize the NCAA for being weak, ineffectual, and failing to come down on schools that cheat and, on the other hand, criticize them for aggressively using the only sources of leverage they have to investigate suspected violations.
The NCAA recognizes they can't compell anyone to talk. They are telling former players that their failure to cooperate will negatively affect the case against their alma mater. If they care at all about Miami (or "Da U" as they affectionatley call it) they will cooperate. If they don't really care and all the "Da U" stuff is bluster, we'll find that out as well. Good for the NCAA for playing hardball with this stuff. It is about time.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||I see no reason to believe||
I see no reason to believe he'll get that extra year. He was on the depth chart that eniter year, was dressed for games, traveled with the team.... he is not getting a medical waiver or he'd have gotten it by now, as all others in a similiar situation do (including Michigan players during the same time period).
|29 weeks 3 days ago||He is a senior next year.||
He is a senior next year. And I see no reasonble chance he gets a medical redshirt. If he was going to get it, he'd have been notified (like many others in the conference have in a timely manner).
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Kellen Winslow Jr. was a||
Kellen Winslow Jr. was a beast in college. I'll take that...
|30 weeks 2 days ago||They also fell behind at||
They also fell behind at home, at night, by big margins both those times (just another way of looking at it). A big comeback requires the leading team to "cooperate" and give some things away (and it takes some luck). If the night game at home was such a great thing for Nebraska, they wouldn't have needed big comebacks.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||Why? He didn't "run his||
Why? He didn't "run his mouth" about OSU or the Rose Bowl. He made fun of a team he owned while he was here. And he stood up for his program when Harbaugh was running it down.
Now , there is an argument that he shouldn't have done either, but what the hell does it have to do with beating OSU or winning a Rose Bowl?
|32 weeks 18 hours ago||This may be true, but it also||
This may be true, but it also puts tremendous stress on your defense, which is often out there quickly (especially if the opponent gets a quick stop or two)... again, see the Rich Rod years.
This can work if you have lots of defensive depth. We don't (yet).
