Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

Borges certainly could have put them in a better position to succeed. But Gardner threw a lot of bad picks last year before he turtled. And that O line was terrible. But hey, Mattison and Hoke were able to cobble the defense together with duct table and bailing wire that first year. The D should be legit now. If Nussmeier comes close to that kind of magic with the offense it could be a special year.

It doesn't have to be a snowman.

Tyler Ecker screaming down the sideline FTW.
Obvious: Kansas, GTFOMC, 97 Ohio St etc etc

Because B miraculously turned the worst defense in Michigan football history into a semi-competent unit B is good.

Obvious troll is obvious...and Inappropriately angry.
|2 days 5 hours ago||I've been trying to figure out||
I've been trying to figure out if Clark is a buckeye or sparty troll. My gut is telling me sparty. You can feel the undertone of self loathing...Buckeyes have the same hatred, but you can tell that deep down they think they're awesome, missing teeth and multi-role family members or not. Definitely sparty.
|2 days 5 hours ago||This just boggles the mind||
3 and 5 win seasons are pretty extreme circumstances. You don't fire a guy without letting his recruits mature. Especially when that coach nearly equalled the win total of his predecessor in his first year. Frankly Your post causes me to question your intelligence. There, I said it.
|2 days 9 hours ago||No problem||
You're looking at this
|2 days 9 hours ago||While I agree with your general tone||
Basketball is much, much more disruptive to studies than football.
|2 days 18 hours ago||You probably should||
If you're strictly looking at the economics of it(and not so much worried about supporting the program) season tickets probably don't make a lot of sense. It's basically a guarantee. If you're willing to spend some time on the internet(and vary seat location), you can probably beat that mgoblue price, even in good years. If you're willing to wait till kickoff, you can get those seats for pennies on the dollar. You're buying security.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Wow||
Season tickets for $414? That's approaching reasonable. I'm not a (football) season ticket guy. What is the current price point for minimum donation + cost of tickets?
|2 days 19 hours ago||I see this as a good thing||
Prices and mandatory donations were getting out of hand. At current prices, supply exceeds demand. Hopefully they notice this and scale things back a tad.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Meh||
Complaining about empty seats is pretty dumb until they're...like...actually empty. Am I the only one that sees 8,000 fewer disinterested students as a net gain? It's not brain surgery, the U will email deals until they sell out(look at basketball $5 promotions, they still pop up despite all the success). Football will still be profitable. The stadium will still have 100k plus, and the world will go on.
|3 days 13 hours ago||I see your point||
But Irvin didn't do any of those things last year either, and he still shot .425
|3 days 14 hours ago||Somebody break the news to Dakich||
Looks like his number change might be short-lived.
Either that, or this is just an elaborate ruse to get Izzo to take a Division III kid(Izzo has been poaching our plan b and c kids quite a bit lately).
In all seriousness, 45% is 45% is 45%. If one's belief(obviously not mine) is that perimeter defense doesn't affect 3pt percentage all that much, this becomes even more of a no-brainer.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Dyslexic pseudojournalist probably saw this photo||
My kids approve, for what it's worth.
|3 days 19 hours ago||You missed my point||
I am saying that it is not accurate. And that repeating the meme can do nothing but lend credibility to it, potentially hurting recruiting. And no, things don't have to be true to be used against you by integrity-challenged weasel coaches in ohio.
Hoke is probably a bad year away from being on the hot seat. This also happens to describe about 90% of coaches in revenue generating sports.
|3 days 20 hours ago||I don't so much have a problem with this post||
But I think this has almost become a meme similar to "Craig James killed 5 hookers". The Brady Hoke Hotseat meme. We all know the dude's job is safe(despite what several reactionary/hyperimpatient idiots are trying so damned hard to make you believe). Even bringing this up is promulgating the meme.
I move for swift and harsh punishment for those who would bring this up in the future(at least until the guy has a losing season).
|4 days 14 hours ago||Every year there are question marks||
But I dare say there are fewer of those than there have been for the better part of a decade. I don't think "business as usual" (beating ND and splitting OSU/MSU) is an unreasonable goal.

I've downloaded it, but never took the time to play.

But Steve Wiltfong(247) says that Michigan leads for Marcus Lewis.

Glad I didn't buy that T-Wolves jersey for my kids. Hope he keeps that chip on his shoulder. Still hope to see him in the states.
|5 days 10 hours ago||I would grade out Hoke's 3 years as||
#1. Somewhat miraculous
#2. Somewhat disappointing(but understandable)
and #3. Disappointing(but understandable)
The rise of sparty makes you want to be all reactionary and call #3 embarrassing, but it is what it is. I miss Andrew Maxwell.

It feels so bizarre that I can't take beating state for a recruit for granted. Looking forward to the day when the "what just happened in sports will always happen" shifts back to the brighter side of the force.
|3 weeks 2 hours ago||No Manny or Deshawn?||
That's too bad. Still shaking my head wondering why Peedi isn't in the league.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Let me address some of your issues||
Your complaints fall under several different headings. The first of which, Petty, covers the noodle, skywriting, seat cushions, and Buttercup. If these things are really important to you, you've got bigger issues than I can address in this forum, though a little Xanax might help.
The second heading would be First World Problems, namely student seating, student pampering, etc. I kid you not, there were kids complaining that they couldn't cheer because they were too far from the field and everyone else was too busy texting. And this was justification for giving students MORE benefits? The sense of entitlement is staggering here. You are not God's special snowflake Timmy. Take your ridiculously underpriced student tickets or don't, but shut your spoiled mouth.
The third, Out Of His Control, comprises the B1G scheduling. Brandon didn't schedule All the decent games on the road this year. He had no say in the matter. I tend to believe most of the issues with selling season tickets stem from this fact(as well as somewhat disappointing football performance over the last two years). Acting like this is Brandon's fault reduces your credibility and weakens your argument.
Oh...and the band didn't go to Jerryworld? That's news to me. Oh wait they did. So you're complaining that you ALMOST had something to complain about. Seems legit.
Actual rational complaints: unjustified price increases, stadium rental ads. I don't like this either. Renting out the stadium feels...commercial. Like renting out a church. And the price increases are painful. I go to fewer games because of it, and while I respect people who support the program with season tickets and seat licenses, it doesn't make sense to me economically, and hasn't for years. For people getting priced out of their lifestyle...yeah, that sucks and I'm not going to try to justify it.
Finally, let me just say, when I read, "God dude, wipe your mouth off already." It makes me think that you're probably not a very good person. It also makes me think that you're probably not all that intelligent. Further, it makes me wonder if you have any knowledge of the concept of irony or indeed hypocrisy. You may want to look into that.

For the title. And the repetition. And the Backstreet Boys reference.
May God have mercy on your soul.

If this thread didn't have more upvotes than everything else on the front page(Diaries and Board Posts) combined.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||How many kids do you have?||
I've got a pair of two year olds, and raising 4(on any timetable) successfully seems pretty exceptional to me.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah||
I'm sure firing Dunn, Mahoney, and Jackson all at once was 100% Beilein's idea.
