the US is rightly worried.. but think of the teams that draw the US or mexico from our Pot?
Have lots of chances for one easy game and get us instead... that would suck.

Should we withhold ecstasy re: any player until they do something in the fourth win of a world series?
Miggy? Hasn't done anything yet... Verlander?... nope
Nathan has a long long track record of being a lights out closer including last year. No reason to not be excited about this one. More excited during the Tigers 4th WS win? sure.

Rich Rod was right after all, we all need to get a life. And Hoke agrees with him evidently.

Because they have proven with the uperclassmen we do have that they can totally "coach 'em up"? And because we are the only school in America starting 4 - second year players on O (all others with 3 or more years in the program)? Are those other teams averaging less than 35 yars of rushing, and less than 220 yards of total offense in their last 4, 3 of which are mediocre D's at best?
That is just garbage excuse making.

Very happy for Pallante and his Family. I am also fine with the move.
But, he is also the type of kid that we had when our D's sucked and also the type of kid that state had when they were irrelevant and not a machine that turns no stars into the top D in the country.
Our players and coaches will decide which this is.. and we won't know for a lot of years.
|2 weeks 17 hours ago||A majority of our players are||
A majority of our players are not first and second year players. Keep believing that and we will be having this conversation over and over and over.

I have absolutely nothing of value to add other than the fact that Homer J Simpson one upped Charlton Heston when he reprised that scene in an episode of The Simpsons. I'd embed if I was smart enough.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I hate to point out the||
I hate to point out the obvious, but if 389 is an unacceptable number for our O to have gained (and I believe that it is) Then 390 seems like an OK number to give up. Their D "stopped" us, so our D must have "stopped" them... right?
I would have liked to see more pressure brought late, 3 men rushing on the bomb to the corner was gut wrenching. There probably was not enough time to nickle and dime us to death at the end, bring the heat, stay behind the deep threats, and let him hit his hot read/checkdowns.
Also, a devin keeper as one of his last three plays on the botched pooch drive would have been nice.
Still, we will win one that we don't expect to before the end of the year. MSU? OSU?

There was a what? Was this sent to your email? Never saw anything sent to me. That would be handy with all my travel.

It's probably been talked about, but, Why don't we have "equivalent cells"?

Comments are way to nebulous to be considered anything but funny.

James also played and was good at it (compared to the general populace).
The boys are the right distance appart age wise for the their to be some looking up from Josh to James. To have a brother starting at UM when you are an 8th grader is huge. The Bars brothers were close in age, that tends to lead to some "blaze my own path, out of his shadow" type stuff.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||No current coach or player||
No current coach or player NEEDED to be punished at all... they CHOSE to be punished. The NCAA said they could all transfer free and clear and no new kid had to sign up to go there. it was their choice to stay, their choice to go, the coach's choice to go... They all knew what the deal was when they signed up.
And now you just have a new crop of people (same fans) in Happy Valley that view their football program as above punishment, and are crying to get it reduced or thrown out.
I have to agree with the keep the sactions folks. No punishment is too stiff against a university, program and culture that allowed THAT to happen.
Edit: I see Wahoo pointed this out below.. damn smart UVA peeps.

In this make believe world of yours, why did Sandusky "step down" in the middle of his career? Also, several people including the head football coach, Athletic Director and the President were told of horrid acts that he had committed by what should have been viewed as reputable sources.

Godin and Wormley are tied with the "or" disignation.
Your point still holds as this still surprised me.

The whole Oline situation is depressing?
Taylor Lewan doesn't think that "whole" means what you think it means...

I didn't see that. I saw a lot of folks giving him an at-a-boy for a 3:26 of very well played football. I did not see even a hint of anyone calling for a starting spot for him. There were even people still asking about a red shirt. And since none of us have seen him play yet, i'd say that is about the "just right" amount of reaction. But maybe that's just me.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I saw lots of nice plays by||
I saw lots of nice plays by Stribling. Wilson had a nice knock away. And Shane tossing it 50-60? yards on a short drop was physically impressive even if it was into tight coverage.

2 Years ago the Park won the state title in the 12, 11 and 10 year old divisions. 3 in one year. Not bad for the smallest of the GP LLs.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Question for you||
About how big is the pool of kids that you select your All-star team from? I ask, because I coach in a nearby small district to the mich team and our 12 went pretty far a couple years ago only to run into a couple teams that were much better than us. There is no way with our pool of talent to make it all the way to Williamsport, and if we did, well I would have to agree with you... Unfortunately. So I was just curios if it was mostly a numbers thing or just better players. Or a whole lot of both.

I would never argue with Frito anyway, but in this case I agree with him 100%.
A couple local (to me) individual beer choices:
Atwater VooDoo Vader and Vanilla Java Porter (that's for the ladies)

hahaha, I was watching the game off DVR this morning.. and I got right to that particular crowd shot before I had to head to work and as I paused it I was thinking the exact same thing. Decent effort, but it is literally another country's flag.

I enjoyed that game... a lot.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||The wings never "brought up"||
The wings never "brought up" DeKeyser. They signed him straight out of WMU with about 10 games to go and got him into the lineup ASAP.. in under a week if I remember correctly. A lot of Smith's playoff problems can be directly attributable to his D partner much of the time in Quincey. He would pass him into trouble more times than not. Tough spot to put a young Dman in, especially against a good team like Chi.
Cleary has to go, he is way too expensive for a 3-4 line checking forward. And there is no need to sign another player who would needs to be on the top 2 lines as those spots are all taken. The bigger concern for the wings would be eliminating some guys. Have to move 22, Sammi, and possibly Bert. Tatar has to come up (no options left and he would never clear waivers) and Helm looks like he may be healthy again. That gives us more than enough bodies to start the year.
Boyes is a guy that I wanted last offseason, and he sure would have look better than the guys we signed.. most of who didn't even play and all of whom we signed for more money and years. But, he may want a little too much now and unless he can be effective on a checking line (not sure as I have not seen him play lately) I just don't think he is a good fit for what we need.
If we add a D, I hope we ship out Quincey for him... that would be the old win win. If we sign a depth guy, please please be on a one year deal.
*I type so slow you already figured out the DeKeyser thing.... never mind that part.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Tatar will be with the Wings||
Tatar will be with the Wings 100%. He has no more options, so unless he is part of a trade, he is in the bigs. Also, your list of guys are probably only 1 year out, which is why the 1 year deal for Alfie makes so much sense. Plus you have to add Riley Sheahan to the list.
Just saw Tampa signed Filpula. Nice move by Stevie Y. Now someone (not Detroit) just has to pony up for Cleary so I can sleep tonight.

"And is anyone else noticing the Jets trying to make Michigan their pipeline? They drafted Serville in 2011, Trouba in 2012 and Copp in 2013."
Evidently, they have never talked to that Jackass from the kIngs.
Jets are moving up my "other teams to root for" list.
