OVER-RATED! *rushes the court anyways because they beat an overrated team*
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Everyone who says stuff like||
Everyone who says stuff like this is trying to calm themselves down more than anything. No one is saying the season is over, people are just disappointed with our play tonight. I think that's acceptable. This has not been a good basketball game for Michigan.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Gonna be an even longer||
Gonna be an even longer season if we're blaming refs against ISU.
Officiating hasn't been good, but neither has our play. Let's at least wait until Big Ten play to start blaming refs..

Gonna be a long season if we play like this.

The "Overrated" chant might be the dumbest thing in sports.
You're winning a game with five minutes left against a top ten team, and you're saying they're overrated?
"We're beating you, so you can't be that good!"

Really shocking stats. And I can forgive last week, because even though it sucks, State has a great defense. Nebraska has one of the worst defenses in the country and they manhandled us. We scored one touchdown. Disgraceful.

You should be able to beat Nebraska if they score 17 points. End of story.

Not a mod, but if there isn't a big thread about it there will be a lot of little ones about it.

Quick pass for 7? Run up the fucking gut. BECAUSE IT NEVER FUCKING WORKS SO WHY NOT TRY IT AGAIN. FUCK YOU AL.

Never want anyone to get hurt.. But I'll take it.

Can't put any of this on the players. They're playing hard. Not put in a position to win. 150% on the coaching staff.

Al Borges must have been competent at one time, no? What the hell happened?

Third and short. You know what's been working well for us? Runs up the gut. Let's do that.
FUCK YOU AL BORGES.

WHY. WHY AL.
If he's still the OC next season I'm done.

Borges: Hey we ran for positive yards for the first time in five quarters. Let's run up the gut again. Aww no gain. Let's try again.

Isn't this against the rules? We're gaining positive yards.

I love Hoke as a person, but he's the anti-Rodriguez so far. We have completely regressed every year he's been coach. I don't even know what to think. I just know it's not fun being a fan of this team right now.

Anyone have a link to a decent stream?

I was sitting right next to the student section as well, and that has a lot to do with it. Notre Dame's band was pointed right at us essentially, and our band was facing directly away from us. Same thing happens every game, with every visiting band.
As far as them getting applause for the halftime show, they finished with "God Bless America", which is a tough song to boo heavily without seeming like a freedom-hating commie.
They were alright, but it was nothing that wouldn't have happened with any other band.

This thread is probably the most panicked discussion of the Glasgow/Miller position battle that I've seen so far.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||He came up a little gimpy||
He came up a little gimpy after a check swing. Finished the AB, didn't look too serious.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||I haven't seen anyone, myself||
I haven't seen anyone, myself included, speculate that he's doing it on purpose because he just signed the biggest contract a pitcher has ever signed.
What I have seen people say, and what I was implying with my comment, is that typically the highest paid pitcher in the game is the best pitcher in the game. Not always, but usually.
Now we've just signed JV to the largest contract a pitcher has ever signed, and not only is he not pitching like one of the best pitchers in baseball, he's arguably playing like the worst starter on his own team, and has at best been the 4th best pitcher in the rotation. That's where my issue with his play has been, and why to me (and others) the contract is relevant.
If you've seen people arguing that he's really not trying at all because he suddenly has all this money, then I agree with you, that's stupid. But that's definitely not the point I was trying to make, nor have I seen anyone seriously argue that point about JV.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||I agree that he'll probably||
I agree that he'll probably eventually go back to being the JV we all know and love, but you can't ask fans to just not care that he's having an awful season. The guy just signed the biggest contract a pitcher has ever signed and he's at best the fourth best starter on our team this season. It's not just a 'lousy streak'.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||I don't necissarily think the||
I don't necissarily think the sky is falling with JV, but everyone saying "It's just bad luck! He's really not that bad!" is irking me a little bit.
He's dropped around 5mph off his fastball since last season. He's got the most walks on the team by a long shot (49, next highest is Sanchez with 33). He has the highest WHIP of any starter on the team (1.37 going into today's game). He has the most earned runs of any starter on the team (and the 3rd highest ERA, with Fister not far behind).
He's not garbage, he's not washed up, and I'm sure once he gets out of this, albeit extended, rut he'll be just fine. But you could make a pretty sound case that he's the 4th best pitcher in the rotation this season, and he just signed the biggest contract an MLB pitcher has ever signed. It's more than a bit concerning.

Anyone know what this is about yet?
|1 year 47 weeks ago||I'm not going to take||
I'm not going to take anything away from this team, but I was a little surprised that Belein saved his timeouts like he did. The LVille run at the end of the first half? Could've broken that up pretty nicely with a timeout.
That said, I love Belein so much for what he gave us this season. Hopefully there's more final fours to come
Go blue, always.
