|5 weeks 1 day ago||I spent $95 on my Nebraska ticket?||
To see that shit show from fat Al? And now I have to hear this bullshit? I'm fine with the defense, for the most part, but the offense is complete nonsense. Please...understand what you have and what you don't have and make an adjustment. Even my wife is fed up
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I must say||
In light of the fact that I received my 'Preferred Seat Donation' form in the mail when I returned from the shit show yesterday...I had to chuckle at your post
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Interesting...||
I just received my email from Michigan re the licensing fee for my 4 season tickets. These are tickets that have been in our family for 50 years. My wife has no intention of giving money to Michigan partly because she's not a fan but also because of what she saw last week. I am seriously questioning whether I want to give money to Michigan because the product that I've seen for the past 15 years has been marginal (there have been exceptions) but more importantly because there is a decidedly negative trend. The bottom line is whether I believe in David Brandon and Brady Hoke.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Sorry||
I hurt your feelings. There's a 2 step drop and a 5 step drop. Many of the sacks were the result of coverage not necessarily o-line issues so shorten the routes. I said nothing about bubble screens. the bottomline in my mind is that he had a poor game plan just like he did against U Conn, Akron, ohio, Nebraska...you think it's the players and I think it's the coaches. Furthermore, David Brandon needs to think less about fly-overs and blue bracelets and more about the 'product'
|6 weeks 5 days ago||No||
You're wrong. Watch the game. As a coach you understand what you have and what they have and you make adjustments. It's called a game plan. And you have contingencies. That didn't happen. Gardner was frustrated not because the game plan wasn't working but because the game planner wasn't thinking. Are you really telling me you don't understand this? Because I can only explain it to you...I can't understand it for you.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Coaching???||
Yes...coaching. No time out call just before their TD pass at the end of the first half. They went hurry up. Don't tell me what happened on the plat either. We needed to call a time out and our coaches did not
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah...||
I watched the second half and that quick pass first occurred at the 10 minute mark of quarter 4 when we were done. Don't blame the players
|6 weeks 5 days ago||This is on Al Borges||
He offered nothing new, nothing different, nothing special. At one point I really wondered if he was sleeping up in the press box or maybe he left to get a sandwich and got lost on the way back because I didn't see anything new until 10 minutes to go in the fourth quarter. That was Gardher's first 2 step drop and throw. I came to this university a long time ago and this was the most pathetic coaching performance ever, bar none. Time for an ultimatum...
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Poor coaching||
will usually marginalize quality players. Michigan has quality players. Ergo...I have 4 season tickets for sale.

last spring at Bodeans on Poland St in London last spring...lots of Michigan fans
|26 weeks 3 days ago||One piece of advice||
Make sure you know why you're taking the MCAT. If you can't honestly answer that question find a different standardized test. The point is simple - understand everything you can about the field of medicine. If you're passionate about medicine then you'll be fine. Medicine, today, is much different than it was five years ago and no one knows where it will be in five years. The only saving grace is passion. Good luck

my unbiased assessment that Siva actually fouls Burke-gets Burke's right arm on the way up with his left arm. So in actuality this was a 4 point swing against M

|37 weeks 3 days ago||Shit...||
I'm on a train going from Brussels to Amsterdam and I'm playing the dubbed version on my Ipad and the guy behind me stands up, hears the audio, puts his head in his hands and almost starts to cry. He shakes my hand for the wrong reason and the right reason
|37 weeks 5 days ago||Help me....||
I'm in London and need a U of M pub for the game tomorrow....suggestions

From what I understand, I have a better chance of being killed by a vending machine than I do of picking a perfect bracket.
|48 weeks 2 days ago||As talented as this kid is||
He comes with lots of baggage....his dad. The level of arrogance and narcissism embodied by daddy precludes Drake's inclusion in anything Michigan.
|51 weeks 1 day ago||No matter how much||
of a dick I am. No matter how poorly my day. No matter how many people I piss off. My dog wags when he sees me. Having a dog means always having someone who likes you more than you know.
|1 year 5 days ago||Well...you're right||
Well...you're right, as are the other 2 responses. The last thing we want to do after something like this is to think about it and talk about it. We'll do what we've been doing for decades-ignore gun violence.
This was a seminal event and to lock the thread and prevent the discussion about this topic is wrong. So we'll keep talking about the mundane things that border on trivia and ignore the fact that 15,000 people are killed every year in the US as the result of gun violence. And unless we have a broad based, widespread discussion focusing on gun violence events like this will continue. Sometime in the future, unless things change, there will be repeat of what we saw today. We'll wring our hands and stomp our feet but unless we talk about it nothing will change.
I've lived very close to Newtown. I've seen gun violence up close. I just want the discussion. So, open the locked thread. Do the right thing.
|1 year 5 days ago||The most important||
The most important topic discussed was the tragic event in Connecticut. The notion that this site decides to resrict the discussion of this seminal event is unfortunate. I understand the 'ground rules' but what happened today demands a careful consideration of these ground rules. This discussion needs to take place and it needs to supplant the discussions that take place here every day.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I don't understand||
The only reason Michigan has been an 'entity' for the past 4 years has been because of Denard Robinson. He deserves so much praise on so many different levels. Denard Robinson is a unique individual and every Michigan fan should thank him for what he has done for this great university.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Question||
How do you get it level? Because if it's not level and I have 2 or 3 Mount Gay and tonics (with a wedge of fresh lime) or a few too many Dark and Stormies I might fall and hurt myself...I am serious about the first part

Walk-on tryouts for the golf team?

my daughter for smoking and drinking and you don't like the discipline...tough.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||And when you get an answer||
find out why their play by play guy (Wischusen) kept saying that Air Force offers no athletic scholarships. There's no tuition at Air Force which is what a scholarship effectively represents. The implication that Air Force has lesser athletes because they don't offer scholarships is ignorant. They have smaller players for obvious reasons and they have a lot of smart, great athletes.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Maybe it's here||
But can someone please explain the Will Campbell holding calls? And if you're going to be sarcastic here's a preemptive 'F you'.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Glass homes and stones stuff||
I remember when Carr retired and the search was hot and heavy and I heard the name 'Hoke'. I rolled my eyes. So I lack any credibility to render an opinion at this or any other time when it comes to this topic.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||This is a message||
also directed to the Paterno family that they need to cease and desist. I really hope they get this message
|1 year 33 weeks ago||In reality||
you need a minimum 3.8 unweighted and 29 ACT for any Ivy sport and all schools adhere to this minimum
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Time to step I guess||
Maybe we should fund-raise...I'm in for $50.
