|1 week 17 hours ago||I know this is an old thread,||
I know this is an old thread, but now that it's back I just have to point something out regarding diversity. I keep seeing people posting about the diversity of AA being a selling point over a place like GR. According to census data, this is a myth. Ann Arbor is significantly whiter than Grand Rapids.
Grand Rapids: 64.6% white
Ann Arbor: 73% white
I think people are conflating their university experiences with the city itself. I loved AA as a student, but I prefer GR as a graduate.
EDIT: This wasn't meant to be a reply. Derp.

According to the 2010 census, Ann Arbor is almost 10% whiter than Grand Rapids by population percentage. The university is known for its diversity, but the city proper is really not that diverse.

I live in the GR area right now, and I'm going to miss it when I have to move next year. The city itself is nice, but there is also a large number of nice suburbs with good public schools and inexpensive housing costs. Also, when it comes to recreation, there is plenty to do in GR. The city really seems to be on the rise, and is pretty cloes to some awesome beaches as an added bonus.

I really don't understand the need to post OMG BOOBZ on a sports blog. Boobs are really, really easy to find on the internet. Can we keep those trash posts elsewhere?

IMO Dantonio is the most important piece of that defense. I'm sure Narduzzi is a great DC, but Dantonio coordinated OSU's national championship defense. I bet MSU's defense stays very strong.

Strong take: Ignoring physical potential, Darboh was a better receiver by the end of the season.

I think Gardner's regression and injury may be among the biggest indictments of this staff. After playing half a season at WR he looked outstanding at QB in 2012, only to get significantly worse statistically every year. Also, I don't think the "Gardner is broken" meme is limited to his apparent PTSD. He has had erratic velocity and has not really be planting consistently all year. There seems to be a real possibility that he suffered a long-term injury in 2013.

We won. Can we stop dancing on the grave? It's not like the guy was trying to destroy Michigan. He was doing what he thought was best.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||There's probably a reason||
There's probably a reason athletes and coaches like Dave Brandon. You can hate him for his commodification of seemingly everything, but he raised lots of money, and it sounds like he was very, very good to all of the sports other than football. Regarding football, his biggest issue was that his coaching hire sucked.

Regardless of whether an offense is spread or pro-style, it needs to block. I don't think it really matters that much.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||I am much more in the "fire||
I am much more in the "fire Hoke" bandwagon than the "fire Brandon" bandwagon. I don't think people would care as much about Brandon's policies if we were winning football games. Frankly, his policies would lead to better facilities and more scholarships for non-revenue athletes. These are good things.
Regarding Hoke, I would like to see him be successful. If he somehow pulls 8 wins out of his butt I will be pleased and will campaign for his retention. With that said, lol not happening.

So what exactly does Hoke do on this team? Serious question.

So coach, you don't call plays, you don't do anything on offense, you don't do anything on defense, and you don't notice personnel injury issues during games. What exactly do you do here?

Utah has passed the eye test over the last couple of weeks. With that said, they return less starters than most teams in the NCAA, and they have only played cupcakes at this point. The jury is out.

And on the flip side of that, they lost more starters than almost everyone in the country according to Phil Steele

I'm glad we've seen some level of improvement from the OL. Last year's line was the worst in school history, so there simply was no way that it was going to be good at the start of the year this year. As long as we improve every week, this team might end up being stout by the end of the season.
