What I'd like to know is: How much money is going to the football program? I'm sure money is directly related to how well a football team does.

This reminds me of that scene form Elf where the guys are talking about vulnerable vegetables.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Yeah, but that's a lot of||
Yeah, but that's a lot of money to spend on a loss.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||From where I sit, I think we||
From where I sit, I think we lost to everyone that I was worried about, with the exception of Michigan State, and they turned out to be awful. We might have given it a good fight, but we're far from where we need to be.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Once the bowl week ends, you||
Once the bowl week ends, you get six more opporunities to recruit. There are five additional weeks, and one slot for "signing day". New players generally pop up, but it's kind of rare that you get that one guy who really wants to go to your school. I pretty much don't like it, so I let the computer do it for me.

One time I saw this formation where there were six receivers. One of them would go in motion and then take the snap while still running. We should do that.

So when people say, "Do what you love," they should really say, "Do what you love, and don't whine about it."
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Cool. What I'd like to see||
Cool. What I'd like to see too is how they stack up against our past three opponents because that's going to give us some perspective about how much harder this game would be.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Because.||
|2 years 15 weeks ago||My only concern would be the||
My only concern would be the linemen. The D-lines in the NFL are nothing like the D-lines in college. The coverage is better too. I don't think the space guys would be that hard to find. I do think that the QB and the O-line would be tough to build.

I can dream, damn it.
I'm calling it right now. After Denard's lengthy, injury free career in the NFL as the starting quarter back who will lead his teams to many Super Bowl victories, he will study medicine and cure cancer, AIDS, and the common cold. Then he will start his multi-national conglomerate, and donate a gillian dollars to charity. And after many years of success in the business world, he will enter politics and be elected president. Shortly there after he will bring peace to the middle east and unlock cold fusion.

You've got to fire coaches. If you don't their career inevitably ends in scandal.

You're right. It's obviously Hoke's 2nd year.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||That's an interesting||
That's an interesting perspective because I was wondering if the opposite would be true. If Chip gets to the NFL, and his line is about equal in talent or less talented than his opponents, will he still be able to have success? Basically, is he winning now because his talent, with respect to his competition, is better? And in an enviornment like the NFL where every guy is a super star, can his scheme still work? I'm going to go with yes. It will work, but I doubt that he'll have the same success.
It'll be interesting to see if he gets in. And imagine if Denard is his "QB who can also run".

What the odds don't know is that this isn't a math test.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||I think the article was||
I think the article was trying to point out one of the advantages of the no huddle, and that is that you can run your team/scrimmage segment of practice much faster. The individual sessions are probably run with the same mentality, but I'm sure the coaches are still giving instructions when they see something wrong - why else would they be there? Air horns can be automated.
The quality of those instructions matter, too, and that's probably why we sucked... assuming that we were even doing that (maybe we sucked because our practices were slow AND our instructions were bad).

RELEASE THE KRAKEN! ...Rum.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||It's not our scheme. It's our||
It's not our scheme. It's our players. We don't zone very well, and when we do, the backs don't hit the holes. Fitz doesn't run down hill like he needs to. He dances and wastes time in the hole. If he would at least run forward he'd at least get 2-3 yards a play, and if you combined that with some good zone blocking, we'd break one every now and then.
Edit: To restate that a little bit... it's our players who aren't performing in the running game, Fitz especially. It's our coaching that's implimenting the scheme and responsible for teaching it. I'm tired of Borgus.

They could have run the ball more. We looked like an airraid offense.

For me... so long as it's tasty and I don't have to do any work other than lifting it to my mouth, that's perfect tailgate food.

If you compare stats... it's easy to see why. I think he plays a huge role in the scheme, but he's not making 70 tackles like Te'O http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/manti-teo-1.html He's at more like 20 http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/ryan_jake00.html

I'd like for him to be healthy for The Game. I don't want them to make any excuses, and I'd love to beat them at their best. I'd also love for them to be undefeated coming into our game. That way it's a win win situation. If we win, we'll crush them. If we lose, their sanctions will crush them.

And people are so sick of me missing their evening commitments like weddings and other family stuff because of Michigan football.

Your calls are bad and you should feel bad.

Bitches don't know about my 4 pairs of long johns... and that makes me really sad.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||I remember watching Michigan||
I remember watching Michigan play in the Rose Bowl while I was on vacation with my family in 1997. I was seven years old, and I watched it form the swimming pool - they had a TV. I was aware of football the following year aswell. I'm sure of it... I just don't remember quite as well. That pool is what really stood out in my mind. It was fun.
Also... it wasn't 1997... I should google things first. W/e that pool was awesome.

|2 years 24 weeks ago||I think he is more accurate||
I think he is more accurate because the fakes are better blocked. the fakes I've seen from the gun usually leave debated standing still in the pocket with a few linemen pulling to sell the fake... then denard throws his famous jump shot, which only seems to work with really tall guys.
