I appreciate your sympathy and reply with my empathy.
Thanks for the link. I've been out of the US for almost 5 years now and have not come across it. Much appreciated.

If that is where you have or do live, you are 100% correct.

It certainly is. They are also quite good at recognizing all the tricks you can use to get it to work.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||My Introduction||
I was 9 and 10 years old when Wheatley was at Michigan. He was my introduction to football and the univeristy. I have such great (likely conflated) memories of him as a kid. No one was better.

Its not even a surprise anymore.

I have always been under the assumption that those characteristics were the hallmark of a "Michigan Man."

I'm really not sure citing Wikipedia is going to help your arguement.

This sums up the way I feel perfectly.

"You can’t give up big plays. Can’t turn the ball over.”
The insight is overwhelming......

.......yards on 8 plays.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||This is what I immediately||
This is what I immediately thought as well. It appeared that morale was crumbling and there were doubts with some of the players that the ball was actually caught.
Hoke did the right thing there I believe if for nothing else it gave the coaching staff time to "rally the troops."

Its this kind of thinking that keeps this team from being better.
Isn't the goal here to beat those teams and bring home a rather large crystal football?

Get off this board and don't come back.

That would be the universe my good man. The universe is fine again.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||As crudy as this seems at||
As crudy as this seems at first glance I would like to see the final fallout on divison alignment and names before making a final decision. There is still a few years left to round all the corners before Maryland and/or Rutgers gets here.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Yikes!||
I would be upset with this after a 20 point win. However, with 18 seconds left this team was dead, the game was over, and everyone knew it. A dramatic come from behind win warrants this kind of reaction.
As CRex said, water is indeed wet.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Seriously....||
They had Nebraska down to one play and couldn't get it done well before the questionable Pass Interference call. Solve the problem don't make excuses.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Borges simply doesn't know||
Borges simply doesn't know what to do with the personnel and I fear for a future full of predictable, unimaginative offense that costs the team 2 to 3 games a year. This hire will be known as Hoke's first mistake.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||It may be too early to draw a||
It may be too early to draw a conclusion but I think the picture that is beginning to fill in is worrisome. Borges seems incapable of expanding his mind out side of his comfort zone and I am 100% sure that I have PTSD when it comes to coaches like this.

I love the big guy: "I have no idea what's going on." Apparently neither did their quarterback.

Don't apologize for not being done. This is some legitimate good stuff. Great work.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||As true as that is I don't||
As true as that is I don't think you have to win consistently at Ole Miss to be worshipped there. Just stay above .500 90% of the time, challenge for the SEC title 1 out of 4 years and then have 1 or 2 seasons where you challenge for the Mythical NC.

Brady Hoke: When Lloyd Carr is just too old to coach anymore.
Thank God we got a Michigan man back so that we can lose winnable road games to put a downer on the season.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||I wish I had your optimism||
I wish I had your optimism right now. This game felt like a big flashback to the RR era. Outplayed, outcoached, and low emotion. I shall bookmark your post and hope that sometime this week I will appreciate it for what it worth. Today was simply a bummer.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||I laughed the hardest at the||
I laughed the hardest at the very last sentence:
"And Ohio State grinds out 16 yards of offense against Nebraska."
I am 100% routing for this now.

I was so close to changing my cable package here in Canada to pick up the BTN. But now, not a chance. 15-20 second clips is damaging nothing no matter how you want to interrupt Fair Use.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||Uhhhh||
If he wants to stay in the race he is going to have to regain his form as a serviceable passer. I shudder to think how this season would be going without his ability to make defenders look bad.
