|17 hours 57 min ago||The Program is the best||
the worst? Can't even recall the name but Barry Sanders was in it for about .4 seconds. It's this dude in Ohio who is a hot shot QB in HS and is going to pay for osu. That's not the issue. The actor is about 5-8 180 and he hurts his knee in the state finals (or some shit) and he can't play CFB. So, of course he loses hot gf to marry the still attractive but frumpy farm girl and is poor, etc. Well, he gets hot on the head (or some shit) and gets to.....go back in time for a re-do! Not hurt, BMOC, hot gf, osu wanting him but his future wife thinks he's a jerk! So, does he changes his future and not pay in the big game and go on to fortune & fame OR does he play in the big game, f--k his knee up like it's a prerequisite (when it's not) and have his "real life" as a limping farmer? Oh, and the movie has a HUGE unspoken religious undertone. Best part? When he sees himself in the shoe as the osu QB. It's pure comedy as it looks like a junior high kid wearing osu gear but he's totally the top QB in the country. All that was missing was Mandy Moore, cancer and 80s prom bullies.
|18 hours 9 min ago||The joke was meh||
but I laughed as I read the part of him saying they had to help bury the body. Both because HF would be funny doing it but I read it in the tone of Ferrell when he does the totally serious in the face of absurdity routine. What it really shows is the SEC culture because you know some kids bought it for at least a few seconds. Then, YAY MOVIES!

NOT because HF would be funny doing it
|1 day 10 hours ago||Honest answer?||
All OCs script plays. All. The only difference is when they use the script. Some want the best chance at early points and others wait for "the dagger TD" or save it for dire situations where the best odds of scoring are needed. Yet, most tend to start the game scripted. I'm not a fan of that but most do it.

Larry Foote is right?
|1 day 10 hours ago||It's my fault, guys/gals||
Had to work that day but didn't mind too much. Friday was spent talking about a giant true FR QB with a howitzer arm that would "be in by halftime, for sure" and we'd win by at least 3 scores. I knew how good an FCS team they were but didn't account for their spread, our lack of ability to stop it, their NFL laden roster, etc. Still, no reason to lose. I was getting updates and just stunned every time. I kept saying "we'll wake up eventually but I'm pissed". Next thing I know, I'm listening to the blocked FG and loss. I almost walked out of work. My arrogance lost us that game, guys. It was me. Nobody can convince me otherwise as I just talked SO MUCH TRASH Friday. So sure our offense alone would put is in the NC hunt.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Well,||
it does show a certain level of toughness and physical fortitude to admit such things. It may feel like a boo-boo to some but I get your point. I like what I see but it could always be better.
|2 days 17 hours ago||I was one||
and truly meant it. A 1 win team the year before with mostly the same guys beating usc in its juggernaut days. Not even close.
|3 days 10 hours ago||I think||
the roofie rape dungeon has a few HDTVs that air sporting events. Just tap the middle-aged bartender that still uses his frat name "Chet, the lay they'll always forget" on the shoulder in between spiking victim drinks for $5 a pop and he'll likely turn the game on. I've never been but hear he's cool.....outside of the whole teenage girl mass rape conspiracy thing. Have fun and watch that drink! Chet can be a prankster! That and he'll totally roofie you if a guy wants you. No hesitation. $5.

Magnets. How do they work? /because they have the social graces of ICP fans....eh, f--k it.

so I'm probably late here but while I agree this game is a stupid scheduling move, that 07 App St team had 7 guys go on to pay in the NFL for over a year (one or two still playing). They finished the FBS/FCS total poll in the top 50 (!) that year, IIRC. They would have beat a lot of teams but I agree that in no way should that 07 UM team have lost. UM shouldn't be in that discussion for teams even a very very good fcs team would beat.

|4 days 1 hour ago||Guy makes mistakes||
as much as he makes great plays but you are absolutely correct. On and off the field, a warrior. To even survive last year was a feat let alone playing osu on one foot and lose by 1. ANY defense and he pulled that game out. The two point throw being a little more accurate OFF OF ONE FOOT and we take the lead as Dileo was wide open. I don't know how he kept going. Then, just the community outreach stories we hear are great but I know for first hand fact that most of them go unreported. I hope he can improve on the field as I don't want his legacy to be a "he only barely touched his potential" type guy. He deserves better.
|4 days 6 hours ago||You have to||
This game is a PR lose-lose so you have to curb them if possible. Even if we are up 50 in the 3rd we'll be seeing highlights of 07 so, if up 50, you keep going. It'll look like pathetic revenge to the rest of the country but even a close win gets us laughed at. You have to curb them. I'm talking hail mary from midfield, up by 50+ with 4 seconds left lol.
|4 days 6 hours ago||They have been current||
"msu" lite under Ferentz. They rarely beat themselves and seen to get the most out of every player. Every ounce of potential. They just play base defense with solid fundamentals and their offense is rarely explosive but always simple and efficient.
|5 days 15 hours ago||Had a vivid dream last night||
actually in the AM this morning. I feel asleep (in the dream) lady night and woke up in the 3rd quarter of the osu game. We were losing 42-7. We looked a lot like last year vs Akron, UCONN, etc. I remember the announcers taking about the seat being "very warm" in AA. I can see plays and we're running proset trap draws for no yardage. I still didn't know the overall record or way the season went down so a ask my brother. He says "same as last year" and we lost to the rivals along with psu, etc. I remember the feeling of dread....another year of B.S. firing talk, rumors, neg recruiting. I see players looking dejected. I watch as GMatt runs 8 new guys on and off the field every play. I remember feeling sick. It was truly a nightmare I was glad to wake from but it was so vivid given the announcer talk, turning on Nuss/Funk/Hoke, etc. Odd that it came one week before our first game.

on phone and didn't proofread Swype autocorrect. Can't edit.

It's crazy to me how everyone thinks of Bo as this cuddle bunny. No, he won and was being loyal to UM and his players but would tell you what he thought in a NY minute. How anyone would honestly day they'd take Hoke over Harbaugh is strange to me. He can be a dick. I give that point. Yet, isn't that what we kind of need every so often? That and, I dunno, a guy that would be the best CFB coach in the country at a place like UM? Guys, Jim IS Bo. People are so obsessed with the lineage and there is no better coach to give us an actual Bo again than Jim lol. Yet, again, I'd be stunned if it happened. Being stunned. I know and admit that. I'm just saying Jim for our entire staff is a trade is make today as well as the night we win the Sugar Bowl. It's a no brainer.
|1 week 16 hours ago||No, I love it!||
It's just that football is about winning. "Nice guy" stories only get you so far. Nobody can question Jim's ability to win. Nobody. My friend played for him at Stanford in his last and Jim's first year. Said it was like going from flag football to the NFL, etc. Also had nothing but good things to say about him. I like this staff but c'mon. Straight up trade.
|1 week 18 hours ago||Somewhere||
Larry Foote is angry. I still don't know if I'm on his side it not?
|1 week 18 hours ago||I said it after winning the Sugar Bowl||
and I'll say it again. I'd trade this entire staff for Harbaugh. Yup. One guy for this entire staff. I love Hoke as a coach almost as much as a person. GMatt has swag fo dayz. I could go on but I won't. Straight up trade. That is the level of football coach Jim is. He can bring whoever else with him later. Straight up trade but I know that ship has sailed.
|1 week 1 day ago||That is what bothers me||
we're SO stuck on this lineage mentality where you can't even be here if you didn't have some ties to Bo. Like Bo, sometimes a program needs a reset. Just because RR failed (reasons inside and out) doesn't mean UM can't hire a non-lineage guy. Sure, I'd love Harbaugh! Yet, especially in CFB, there are tons of winning coaches if given UM resources and left the fuck alone.
|1 week 1 day ago||If doing any hard work||
I'm guessing heart. Sibling recently had a titanium valve replace the valve in his heart due to being born with and diagnosed with aortic stenosis as a teen. Every time his heart beat it kicked back blood. Too much work and people with it just collapse. No resuscitation. If undiagnosed it's deadly, especially for athletes.
|1 week 1 day ago||This||
it's a no win situation (from a pr standpoint) and the entire game well be highlights of 07. So, if we play them again I guess you have to curb them if possible. I'm talking Hail Mary, up by 50 with 3 seconds left. Even that doesn't change 07. This reschedule is a no win anywhere but the field but think about if we lose again.....fuuuuuuuu
|1 week 2 days ago||Honestly?||
Because of Peppers and every OL on this team. Good or bad, better or worse. Those guys have accounted for the majority of player discussion.
|1 week 4 days ago||Someone||
gets my point. Also, we're not talking about Saban's defense. I just threw him in as a winning CFB coach because have you noticed that his teams also field great offenses that are in no way tricky, overly fast, etc. Basically "we have better players so we can just come at you" offenses? Finally, "you don't know where to start"? I do. Coaching. Try it if you haven't. I understand OL takes time and is very hard to predict future success but it's SO easy when you have better players.....like Michigan should and does over about 85% of programs. The game of football is NOT hard, especially offense where you know what you're doing, where and when.
|1 week 5 days ago||Nobody needs to||
step off a ledge (ok, some do) but most are just genuinely incredulous about how long it takes to "rebuild" an average OL. Not a great one. Average. Let's be real. This unit is not going to be something we can call average in two weeks. The best we can hope for is that happens as the year goes on. Every year the very people telling others to step off the ledge are often those most outraged as the season progresses because they think that things change overnight. They rarely do. I just think it's absolutely fair to be discouraged with the OL given who we have regardless of age. They're big, strong, highly rated kids. No reason to be anything below average, IMO. Again, it's not a hard game. In my view, either what they're being taught (fundamentally) or who is teaching them is/are failing. Then again, we'll see what two weeks does. Again, not mad or calling for heads exactly. Genuinely incredulous. Most teams would kill to have our OL talent and we can't find a combination that is merely average. People have the right to question.

Any kind if year like last year and he's gone. Too much money to pass up given the NFL loves those hybrid guys now. He'll be labeled a TE for cash purposes but line up everywhere. I'd be stunned if he came back.
|1 week 5 days ago||also forgive||
the few autocorrects I didn't notice. I use Swype. Fast but often inaccurate.
