The mgoboard has been making this loss worse for me. I'd rather move on, but the depressing "I give up" atmosphere here since the end of the game is just plain awful. Thankfully you're all not running the program or this season would be a complete tire fire. Way too reactionary.
I hate losing just like the rest of you, especially the way the game ended, but I'm looking forward to seeing how this team will perform under adversity with a fanbase screaming for their coaches heads. At least you know the players love this coaching staff, so I hope this will motivate them to work even harder and beat the piss out of the B10. I'm going to support this team AND coaching staff until the end - Give Nuss time to work on this o-line before you crucify him as well.
On a side note, I actually saw some improvements in our running game. We all knew the O-Line would be a work-in-progress with improvements over the course of the year. Hopefully they improve enough by the time the MSU game comes around.
Looking forward to Saturday's game.

I'm not sure who I like more, but they both looked a lot better than last year. Green in particular. He really seems to have found that burst to hit the hole that was missing last year with that added weight. There was a bit more explosion in his runs. It's one game. I'm much more confident in those fellas running the ball this year.

I'm going to be mid-flight during his announcement. If there are any mgopilots in the Reno/Tahoe area, can you please skyline his decision for me? Block M for yes and a sad face for no.

Not to mention this fella named Serge Ibaka who they drafted late first round, stashed overseas for a year of development, and turned him into a star. They haven't been perfect with all their acquisitions, but they've built an excellent championship caliber team despite their small market stature.

I was sitting on my couch watching that game via ESPN GameCast on my dang computer that whole fourth quarter. I will never forget my reaction to reading the captions on that final play after refreshing the crap out of that thing just praying that freaking field goal would go in.
I can't imagine that it would have been more difficult and heartaching to watch that game live compared to how I was forced to keep up with the stupid game.. having to refresh the page over and over again in frustration while waiting for ESPN to update the dumb thing.
At least this time it's on TV! Ha.

The Horror II implies defeat.... Pretty sure the game hasn't even been played yet.

I don't even get Draftageddon. How does one win Draftageddon? Have I missed the end of season Fantasy Draftageddon Championship Extravaganza every year? I've always felt like I was the one mgostupidhead who didn't know the point of the whole dang thing. Maybe I'm supposed to read every Draftageddon article in its entirety to figure it all out, but it's too long... so I gave up.

I'd respect him too if it wasn't such a ridiculous thing to throw a "temper tantrum" over. It isn't like Dave Brandon changed the helmet or rose prices 100% or put a Domino's pizza ad in the middle of the football field - He scheduled a football game... with a team that this guy can't stand because of a previous terrible outcome.... Uhhh... I'm sorry, but to me that's just his loss if he chooses not to watch it. It's not that he's a terrible person for doing this, but it does sound exactly what he described it as... a "temper tantrum." In other words... an immature reaction.
Profitgoblue... do as you wish, but I just don't think it's worth it.

|4 weeks 4 days ago||The reason I stated this as a||
The reason I stated this as a "religious discussion" is because religion defined the culture in which this country was founded for which still influences our nation to this day, which resulted in a particular known judgment towards homosexuals. It is because this nation was first a Christian nation that homosexuality has been such a hidden topic for so many years. Over time those viewpoints have been challenged and we are now seeing a rise in acceptance of homosexuality.
That is why this is a religious topic, because if it wasn't for conservative religion this would never have been the hot button issue it is today. Not all Christians or religions see homosexual behavior as immoral, just as not all non-religious people view it as moral. But the fact is that Christianity has always been a reason for why this is now newsworthy because of the culture it helped define, which is what I meant by a religious topic. I didn't mean anything by that other than I just wanted to help make aware the fact that the issue really shouldn't be whether or not we agree with the life he lives but that we should commend him for being real with who he is.
I meant to stop before but I felt like I was being misunderstood, so I apologize if my statements offended anyone. Again, my main point is to bring unity to the idea that no matter what beliefs we have regarding homosexuality, we need to feel compassion for those who feel they need to live in a dark hole to protect themselves from "haters" and acknowledge that this is a very bold and embraceable motion.
Mods, feel free to delete my comments if needed.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I have learned over time that||
I have learned over time that you are correct about homosexuality not being a choice. The actions are choices, and that is where my moral beliefs kick in. This is where I wanted to stop the discussion because of the boards standards.
All I can add is that I have made an insurmountable amount of immoral choices in my lifetime, so I have no judgment towards sexually active homosexuals. And I will not pretend to understand homosexuality because of the scientifical aspect of it; I am not a homosexual, so there's no way for me to grasp what it's like to be homosexual or to feel a sexual attraction towards another man. And this is the case for every heterosexual male or female regardless of your viewpoints on homosexuality.
I apologize if I stepped overboard the religious discussion, I just wanted to clear that up. This is all I will say from here on out about this. This is such a sensitive topic, and rightfully so. I wish extremists from both sides could choose love over hatred.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||The thing that I don't like||
The thing that I don't like about topics like this is that they become heated and result in a lot of hate towards particlar thoughts/beliefs regarding homosexuality as well as the particular individuals they involve. "Religion" is the main reason why this is such a big deal in the first place, so to say "no religion" should mean that these things should probably not be brought up on the board in the first place only because it restricts comments to one particular viewpoint and prohibits others from expressing themselves.
That being said, despite the fact that I am a proclaimed Christian and have my own views on the subject of homosexuality, one thing I can say for sure is that I am proud of him for allowing himself to come to terms with his homosexuality in that he is not afraid of the decisions he makes and what people think of those decisions. I truly believe that if you make decisions that are regretful and are morally against them yourself, you should do everything in your power to correct those behaviors. If you like the decisions you make and find them moral and just, it is sad to think that you would be forced to contain those beliefs/life choices within yourself and "hide" from the world - So many negative consequences come from that, and I imagine that must be an extremely tough world to live in.
I respect and love those who are real about who they are, and I truly wish those who do not agree with his life choice would still love him for being real about himself and love him for who he is as an individual. Unfortunately, this is not the case most of the time. And that's truly sad and hateful, which is not what "we" are called to be.
I will only go this far in the discussion since this is not a board for "religious discussions," but I do wish those who see this from the other extreme realize that those who have differing opinions on "homosexuality" are not terrible people just like those who practice homosexuality are not terrible people - When it's an issue of hatred towards a particular individual, then it becomes inhumane and unjust regardless of the viewpoint.
I, too, wish for a day where these things don't have to be a huge media event any longer.

You apparently didn't read the Mattison presser.
Half joking, I agree that there seems to be a bit more confidence in the basketball team's future productivity due to recent performances, but I can't say that means I am more anticipating basketball season at the moment. I absolutely cannot wait for game day.
To add to this, I also am an avid basketball follower - ask the wife. Pumped for this year as well. Really excited to see these freshmen do their thing, including Dawkins.

I'm not sure that's completely the case. While Mattison will never go out and say "our defense is quite terrible at doing this and this," usually the optimism is capped with a bit of "need to continue to develop in 'x' area." I really think Mattison knows this is his best defense he's had at Michigan, and he's having a difficult time containing his excitement.

|5 weeks 10 hours ago||If Drake Johnson turns out to||
If Drake Johnson turns out to be the starter, I'd say that has more to do with his actual skill than the lack of skill from Green and Smith.
The only position group that I feel is questionable is the O-Line. I don't know why, and maybe this is every year and I'm just too excited for the season to start, but I feel like the coaches seem to be a lot more positive about their team as a whole this year. I see that especially from the defensive side, but I feel like I can recall a lot more "need to step up" talk from the O-Line throughout the preseason and during the season last year. Hoke seems to speak positively about specific players on how they're doing, which to me seems to be an improvement.
Not saying we have an All-Big10 line this year based off of what I'm reading, but I'm becoming more optimistic about where things could be. Wait and see I guess... *sigh*
