Wife went to CMU, and one of my husbandly duties is keeping up on the football team. Am close to telling her I need to be released from this as long as Enos is still coach. I think AD Heeke has to go too. Which ain't happening.
Also, am contractually obligated by said wife to include a "fire up" salutation in all CMU football posts. So, Fire Up Chips!

Why is Math so much fun?,
Everyone seems to say.
When all other Subjects
Are work work work,
Math is just like Play.
Oh yes, just like Play.

I'm sorry, we were looking for "that's what she said".

Jake was arguably the team's best player as a soph.

Later. After the victim regains his health.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||the real shame||
One moment of abject stupidity and the arc of the victim's life is changed. I can't help but think of all the hard work he put in over years and years to get to the point where he's a Michigan student at a great university..... then poof, a bunch of internet commenters cry over the loss of a thug from the football team.

I'm hoping this doesn't ruin the *victim's* life. At this point why give a damn what it does to York's life?

Molk's skill set is probably a better fit for Chip Kelly's scheme than San Diego's anyway. Good for him.

It sure would be nice if we could take this soccer fever and give a UM team member a boost this weekend. Goalie Adam Grinwis plays for the local PDL Michigan Bucks and the Final 4 is being hosted at Ultimate Soccer in Pontiac this weekend. Semis are Friday night with the Bucks kicking off against Jersey Express @ 7:30pm. If they win the final is Sunday afternoon at 1pm.
The quality is pretty high, and this Bucks' squad might be better than the one that went to back-to-back title games a few years ago.

And...... it turns out Fabio was cut today:
Sounders fans lament they didn't have a place to stick Fabio while he develops. And he was taking up an international slot which Sigi Schmid wanted to clear so he could bring back a couple of players who are nearly done rehabbing.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Gotta say I'm surprised Fabio||
Gotta say I'm surprised Fabio has hung on this long. Didn't think he was athletic enough.
Adam Grinwis is someone who should definitely be drawing an MLS check soon.

Pozbang for the only guy here who brought up Fagundez. Already a proven pro who has the tactical acumen too many Nats guys don't have. One of the few MLS'ers I make it a point to follow as much as I can. Just needs to get that paperwork done in '17.

My cousin nearly set the MIAA record for ERA with Hope back in the day. 6' 4" and plenty of heat.

While the final score in '76 looked bad we did lead by 5 at the half. And that team was a ball to watch. That was racehorse basketball and Green was electric.
And if Hubbard doesn't break his leg his NBA career looks a lot better and longer.

Man that chart is ugly. I count 115-333 from two-point land not under the net. Wow that's bad.

Well we all know why the ACT scores are not, um, balanced.

Legwand becomes the 2nd grad from Grosse Pointe North to play for the Red Wings. Go North!
You don't see those pansies from South producing Red Wings.

That right there is a pretty good sign you have a winning idea.

Yeah, that's the kind of stuff I'm talking about. If it weren't in the context of hoops recruiting its a stunt that would attract the attention of law enforcement.
Frieder was a fractured soul that desperately needed affirmation from all the wrong sources. ASU gave him love and Frieder lost some of the drive he had here.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Many years back I happened to||
Many years back I happened to meet a guy who played ball with BJ Armstrong in HS. Would have been '86 or '87. I forget precisely why, but he had the chance to play some friendly hoops at Crisler. Just screwing around. Also got to watch a couple of practices. He described to me how the big names on the team would blatantly ignore Frieder whenever it suited them. Saw a couple of players mock Frieder behind his back. He had little control.
Freider's reputation as a recruiter is well known. Don't know if it exists online, but after Frieder left I remember some recruiting letters getting into print. I remember reading a couple. Embarassing stuff. I know coaches pump potential recruits up but some of the stuff reminded me of how shameful Nixon & Kissinger were when they met Mao. And Frieder was writing this stuff to kids in *7th* grade.
He got stars to campus and then could never rein them in. Its why his best teams often showed up well for big games but snoozed thru many.
And that '89 roster shouldn't have been a surprise to win it all. They should have been favorites. I believe 9 guys on that roster logged 1K+ minutes in the NBA. Give those guys to Dean Smith for a year and they win multiple titles going away.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Zero, zip, nada||
There is *zero* chance we win the title with Frieder as coach. Frieder's success as recruiter was directly responsible for his failures as head coach.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Great article, but its missing something||
Am a little bit surprised not to see our increase from '71 onward linked to the new auto labor contracts signed that year. This state's decline in wealth and population started in earnest then and the resultant decline in HS player quality plainly evident by '76.

I'd bet $ against it. Outside Sochi? I'd bet $ on that.
