FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

Not a bad time of year even though the shore isn't in season. I'll be on my couch for this game I think or with other M alums at the Charlotte M bar.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||BTN||
I cringe when I see a UM game scheduled for BTN, their production is horrible and the announcers are just awful to listen to. I have work to sync my DVR and the radio broadcast so I can stand it. I'd almost rather the game be on ESPN2 with Pam Ward announcing.
|19 weeks 8 hours ago||Not quite||
It's more of a material conditional whereas a syllogism would be:
MSU is good and,
MSU won the BTT therefore,
MSU will win the NCAA tourney.
Syllogisms often require a tenuous jump to a conclusion.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||High 3 or Low 2||
Which is better, practically? I know we'll feel better about ourselves if we can brag to our Sparty friends that we're 2 seeds, but I'm just wondering as a layman.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||DVR||
Since I watched the Iowa game without the DVR this past weekend and we know how that ended up, I've got the DVR on tonight and will not watch the game live. I'll look for the score at halftime and at the end. Hey, it might work!
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Win||
Unless we don't know who we are...
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Central time zone||
MY general feeling is that outside of Chicago, if one lives in the Central time zone one might as well live in Bolivia
|23 weeks 5 days ago||GR III||
Must be more consistent...he's an enigma, imo. It's kind of odd to think the NBA would want a guy like him after this season. At times he looks unstoppable - like when curling to the hoop and getting a nice pass, but at times it looks like I could guard him.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Must. beat. Ohio. tonight||
To have a chance at the B1G 'ship.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Hoping||
Michigan can win this one with Payne and Dawson out (yes we're missing McGary, but he's been gone for a while and M has adjusted). I'd be disappointed if we can't get the win and Sparty will be even more insufferable.

any competent coach should win at USC...if he's fired that might happen. Not what anyone wants.
|46 weeks 4 days ago||Awesome||
Brian, I just want to thank you for what you do. I'm just a guy sitting in an office on the 28th floor in downtown Charlotte surrounded by Nascar, Carolina and Duke Hoops fans and here I get to read about my beloved Wolverines ('87 grad) on one screen while I work on a spreadsheet on another. Makes me choke up, I'm so glad you're there for us...really.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||That's my problem||
I don't understand it...and I really hope my OSU friend is way wrong.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||K||
Chillin'.... we'll see what happens. I just hope he doesn't wake up one day and wonder why he didn't work harder a la Big Will.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Ha||
Not very, but I wasn't going to be QB at UM. My summer before UM was a drink fest....I remember nothing.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||my impression||
That was my impression of him all along that he's a competitor and that will be the difference. I just have a low opinion of Twitter so when I see a guy who's about to go to UM and become a star QB and possible NFL QB I get worried that he's a slacker. Problem is that when I think back to my summer before Freshman year at UM, all I did was drink beer all day and night on Walloon Lake.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Serious||
I'm serious but it's just me probably...I've looked at Twitter and can't believe it's a "thing" out there that people waste time on. Tell me that's it.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||right||
You're probably right, but it demonstrates a lack of seriousness on his part in my book. I really hope I'm wrong.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Morris and Twitter||
A Buckeye friend of mine (I know, but yeah) told me that Morris is not a serious threat to be a great QB at UM because he's unfocused...witness his addiction to Twitter. So for the last couple of weeks I've followed him on Twitter (he's my second follow after Jon Stewart) and I gotta say that I'm concerned because he seems to be on Twitter 24/7...posting nonsense. I've stopped following him because it was too depressing...I hope my impression of him is wrong since I kind of agree with my Buckeye friend now.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Sr 5 star with good coaching||
I'm hoping that the combo of Hoke/Mattison/Montgomery with more confidence/experience will get him to the level he needs to on for Michigan to have a good year in 2012. I think his impact or lack thereof will be the difference between a good season and another great one.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Agreed||
Loved the FB podcasts in Fall 2011 and think the guys could do a Hoops podcast. I'd like to hear them talk about the hockey team too...both once per fortnight (love that Brit term).
|2 years 41 weeks ago||AA Pioneer||
Tailgate at AA Pioneer, then drive over (using a DD of course) to EL just before the game starts. It's the only way to be truly safe from the burning couches and drunk MSU freshmen vomit.
ED: thanks mods for un-"flamebaiting" my post...I posted with "fun" in my heart!!
Why "flamebait" again? :-(
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Sparty Noooooo||
M will be able to score 3 TDs on the MSU defense while MSU will move the ball a little on the M defense but only score 10 to 14 points. Book it.
This "scouting" reads like a veiled swipe a all things M IME, while trying to sell us on how GREAT all MSU players are. Cunningham may be a good college receiver but he'll not be drafted before the 6th round.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Good stuff||
Not so many points will be scored though unless UM is blowing out MSU.
I say UM 21 MSU 13
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Not sure||
I agree with your policework there mgousmc. It doesn't seem the passing game is really using DR to his best abilities. IMO.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Denard||
The problem is the routes the WRs are being asked to run aren't helping Denard get into a rhythm. The long, over the middle passes are tough for Tom Brady, let alone Denard. I want to see more bubble screens, hitches 6-7 yards down the field and those fake QB draw, throw the ridiculously open pass plays (that play is probably available 3 or 4 times per game).
I'm still hopeful though and to be honest, Koger had a bad game today.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Somewhat early?||
Yikes! I'd rather fly under the radar this year than get this type of press.
Sparty has already counted the game against UM in the win column and I'd like to keep it that way...until after the game of course when they've found that they've lost.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Brian rules! Doesn't take||
Brian rules! Doesn't take himself too seriously, best thing about him.
Ace you were nervous but did a fine job anyway. Relax and have fun...your job is all about fun anyway. Maybe you'll be the straight guy to Brian's cut-up character...you had a little of that going on.
Looking forward to more of these...WIN OR LOSE!!
|2 years 47 weeks ago||NRP Love||
I love NPR, but I'm not sure they are best qualified to discuss college athletics.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Ughhhh||
The Michigan Man stuff is sooooo old and useless, I agree with you. I never listen to sports radio, but since game day is coming I'm just fired up so I listened to it...geeze what fluff, those people are the douchebags. Hoke probably holds his nose while talking to them.
I knew there'd be nothing of value from the interview, but I listened anyway...geeze I'm sick.
