|17 weeks 2 days ago||Wow. The BIG is absurd||
The first memory to me is the Lantry FG and schools voting for OSU to go to the Rose Bowl in stead of us. Then the constant garbage that we have witnessed throughout. It really annoys that we give but never get anything in return from this conference. When Harbaugh went to satellite camps the SEC commish complains and no support from BIG commish. I also never heard Delaney going to bat for Michigan in the 2006 NC Game. They fill the BIG network with OSU players and then ask them about Harbaugh's whining. I want to know what we get for our loyalty to this conference?
I don't care that they fined Harbaugh for 10k, but not to include the admission on poor official vetting on their part is inexcusable. This demonstrates their attitude that this relationship is one way and you just have to take what they dish out. I don't want to see Harbaugh sour on college coaching and I don't want to see the M football team get trashed because of this. Delaney needs his powers severely curtailed.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Next year's team||
will beat all of the weak teams on the schedule and lose to OSU and a couple others. Best case is 2 loss team. I think we end up with 3-4 losses.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Not a Wilton Speight fan||
two interceptions plus the fumble cost 21 points. We were not able to overcome his poor play. Overall, the defense was fine. It looks like at least two more years of losing to OSU before we have a real chance to beat them. We lose most of our starters and have a weak QB and OL to deal with. This sucks
|18 weeks 3 days ago||OSU is being picked||
because of past success. OSU has an offense that consists of two players getting 40-50 runs combined and one rb/slot player getting a dozen touches. They have not demonstrated a passing attack since early on in the season. We have our own problems on Offense, however, our defense has been very good. In our one loss we only gave up 14 points. I think we match up very well against OSU. I love that everyone is overlooking us right now.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Danielson||
Gary can be an excellent commentator when he wants to. However, he has chosen favoritism over objectivity. The LSU QB slid and got hit in the back of his helmet by an Alabama defender's forearm. All Danielson could say was that was a tough football hit. He is so inconsistent when it comes to hyping his favorite SEC team.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Maryland team on the rise||
I think Durkin is doing a good job. Maryland got torched today, but they look like a real team. They just lack talent at this point. I think they will become a tough team in the coming years. What do you all think?
|24 weeks 5 days ago||M 41 - 13 R||
Offense gets running game going. Sloppy field makes for a lower score than would be.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe the new Brazil coach should do that too!||
I agree that our fundamentals must improve. Zardes has too many bad touches, but he is young and athletic enought to make up for some of it. Some of the older players that make bad plays like Bradley need to go. I can see the next MNT with 3-5 different starters from tonights team, and all of them are young promising players. We just need to develop a mercurial player to be better on the world stage.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Step off the ledge||
This team is far from perfect, but Columbia is #3 ranked team in the world and we played them evenly, with poor officiating at that. I like our young talent and that is a reflection on JK building a team.
|47 weeks 9 hours ago||Beilein weaknesses||
I agree that it is good to get assistants that have strengths were the HC has weak spots. However, Beilein sets the tone and emphasizes what is important to him. The defense will continue to be a struggle and standard post play as well. I really like coach Beilein, but he is not a good defensive coach, and seems to neglect the post play on both sides.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||The punt would||
have been unnecessary had the call stood. The Lions did not get a break with Suh. The NFLPA held the league accountable to prove their case and they backed down. That was a game-changing call and should have never happened.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Wow.||
Now I remember why my NFL viewing is almost zero. That was one of the most obvious penalty calls you will ever see.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||So Hoke kind of knows||
they had the stake yesterday. But now the blame is on the misguided players. Yep, Hoke is a good guy looking out for his players.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Yes||
This was definitely not worthy of a press release. Why does BH feel the need to bow to Dantonio? His nature seems to be to show preference to his superiors.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||You're probably right about stomping on his grave.||
However, just because he is a bad coach that loves Michigan and says a lot of "campy" phrases makes him a good guy? I am not saying he is a bad guy, but what makes him a good guy?
I think the guy that demands the players be men and play that way is a good guy. A man that does that isn't always liked but definitely respected. Brady seems to want to be the players pal, and that just doesn't work out. He also, seems to look the other way and lie about it when things blow up (stake gate)
I don't know what to think about BH off the field, but I do know that he should be replaced sooner than later.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Does this mean||
it never existed, or that it doesn't currently exist? Was it deleted? I hope it wasn't made up by WD.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||But what is our current scheme?||
I honestly am not sure. At times they will get DG out of pocket and others they don't. They really don't seem committed to anything this year like last year.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Huh, what?||
I have no idea what was said other than we practiced hard. Is Peppers practicing or not? He watched film of state's defense, and he saw they play hard and execute. SMH
|2 years 23 weeks ago||I agree.||
They do have a good chance to win west. East is incredibly difficult, even if B10 is down.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Other than W/L||
what makes Minnesota a "really good" team?
Minnesota 42 East Illinois 20
Minnesota 35 Middle Tennessee 24
Minnesota 7 TCU 30
Minnesota 24 San Jose St. 7
Minnesota 30 Michigan 14
Minnesota 24 Northwestern 17
Minnesota 39 Purdue 38
Winning is obviously better than losing, but there is nothing in their resume that makes me think they are really good.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Serious question:||
Who decides to go for it or punt on fourth downs? Does Hoke ever say anything? How about punt blocks, or long field goals? Just curious.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Bart Starr called the offensive plays||
And the MLB was responsible for calling defensive plays back then. Lombardi was totally engaged, and that was done by verbal communication throughout the game. He yelled, he talked, he corrected, he asked... All I see Hoke do is clap and praise.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Are you saying that Bo never gave||
negative feedback to a player coming off? Ripping into a player is showing displeasure for the mistake, while coaching is telling him he messed up and how to fix it. I never see Hoke give anything other than positive reinforcement when they come off, and that approach doesn't work well.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Is playcalling jibber jabber ?||
What about deciding to go for it on 4th down, who makes that decision? Is Hoke involved in that?
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Delegation was just one part of||
what was described. Do you think Les is disengaged in what is going on also?
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Why?||
He is just basing it on Hoke's previous pressers. Hoke is famous for non answers, so it shouldn't be a surprise when journalists get a bit snarky.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Yep. Let's hush dissent.||
I hope DB and Hoke stay for next year too.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||That's not exactly correct Ramona||
I don't recall any posters ripping you for saying that you were attending the game. I do remember how you kept injecting yourself in other posts though. Could you show an example of the "hatred" you experienced from that post?
|2 years 24 weeks ago||A five minute protest is going to hurt the players?||
You have a really low view of them. Also, they can protest however they want. You protest your way and they protest their way.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||What is going on here?||
What is going on here? Everyone is supporting the players. Even Hoke is getting a bit of a pass due to the extreme ire towards Brandon.
What info. or take is Hoke/Brandon giving the former and current players? I think that they are putting a wedge between the players and the fanbase in order to save themselves.
This seems very strange.
