"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

|5 years 25 weeks ago||what do you get out of a chat||
what do you get out of a chat room about Michigan Football? at the end of the day.....what do you get out of it? how old are you by the way? and whats worse....... a perfect paragraph, dotted i's....crossed t's.....that says nothing and lacks depth. Or in imperfect paragraph that says something? Out of those two what is worse? And don't think I am associating my rant with depth. Whats your answer
|5 years 25 weeks ago||If you limit your choices||
If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that's left is compromise.
not my quote. since youre smart and I am not....how do you define reasonable in a chat room? Chat room reason or lack thereof. Be a great paper. that quote above goes hand in hand with the logic of an engineer.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||logic and football have never||
logic and football have never gone together. plus, since none of us here are paid,"Unbiased," sports," journalists," I am here to rant homie. Sorry. I actually get a stipend from Brian to stir the pot up so to speak. I am kidding. I do not. It's one thing to ruin the cohesiveness and just mush mouth it on here like some crazy alabama fan would. But when people use their degrees on here to talk football and reasoning, it's equally laughable. It's actually hilarious. When I first chatted here I said if Sheridan starts and it goes bad, Sheridan would be almost ruined. I would say after his game today he's useless throwing the football. His confidence is zero. I cheered for that completion because I knew it would help his confidence. I also said Michigan would probably lose this week as well. Two things which made me the butt end of jokes from people with bigger brains than I. But it's football. And football is easy to predict for the most part. You know what I'll go retake Logic from my philosophy department for you. And I guarantee you once I get through that class my football IQ or logic will be at zero. The football demographic is what kills me. Lee Corso and Craig Nessler(?) get paid to speak to a certain person. Corso's predictions are way more in depth and even more difficult to understand how he thought that than mine are. If anything I am just taking the null. And Doug Flutie and Chris Fowler are more like you and or more like people who would blog here. People who project class and are esteemed. But continuing with the demographic, even Jesse Palmer has a demographic. So you have all these people with degrees trying to blog their way into the head of 20 something footballer for their local university. The more emotion you factor in and the less logic, the closer you are to the heart of football. And that is why it's Americas game! Football chatrooms are fun, sometimes they have the rules of country clubs and other times you feel as though you are on a city bus in SOHO at 2am.

I think Donovan Warren needs something. It felt off with him today. Someone should go talk to that young man. I thought it was funny that Brian labeled David Molk as a key factor and then Molk starts the game with a chop block. Hilarious. Was it Molk who had the chop? I could'nt see it where I was at. And with the pass stats by freshman....do you count swing passes as passes? I guess you have to but still. It was Stonum who filled in nicely today. Really those throws to Stonum by Threet were money. ND pretty much avoided Brandon Graham somehow. I do not know if they ran away from or what.

VanCam is looking for friends online to bash people. Anybody want to zing a joke with him. Come on. lol

|5 years 25 weeks ago||Well well well. You always||
Well well well. You always make me feel like so welcome. You ever seen one flew over the cuckoos nest? In that scene where they are fighting and McMurhpy is yelling. Thats what this chat is. I know there are standard ways of communicating and I know there are reasons why Sam is starting. But you are just a flat out jerk armed with a keyboard hating life. I mean you are so awesome. Why are you here responding to losers like me on chat anyways man. I mean why not go on a vacation or take your wife somewhere exotic like Hawaii Mr Winner? Why chat at 131 am Mr Im so smart and a gift to earth. They say the adult stuff ruined the net. I think youre playing your part ruining college sports as well. All you are is negative and powerless vancam.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Sometimes a guy will fumble||
Sometimes a guy will fumble and be an upperclassman and that fumble gets labeled as a frosh mistake. Fumbling is common and yet for some people not so common. Bad weather is a part of football. Mike Hart proved fumbling and bad weather were not synonymous. He proved bowl games and good weather though were good for fumbling. Minor and Grady played like backups, in that they committed the cardinal sin of running backs and that is fumbling the football. Last week you said I was nuts for saying Michigan was gonna lose. You were amped cause ND sucked so bad. Funny going back and reading that. If you are such a winner ShockFx why are you here on chat rooms with losers like me anyways man. geeezz. I mean cmon
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Hey McMurphy why don't you||
Hey McMurphy why don't you just let Mr Martini speak ok? Kidding. MGoMike-there have been Freshman in Michigan sports that have done incredible things. The Fab 5 were scary for Freshman. Chad Henne was ok to eh! But it is a lot to ask of any freshman QB like Forcier or Beaver to come in and star in the Big 10. You have to make it work with what you have. Did RR get dealt a bad hand? No, not at all. He got dealt a bad hand for what his style is though. I would say he got dealt an average hand but not a bad one. A bad hand for what his offense needs or intends to do. That is why you see a ODOMS as a freshman at the slot. He is a spread type guy. But also Odoms is gritty as hell. But I understand where you are coming from. I think in blackjack, there comes a time when you just stop bitching about the hand your dealt and just start playing cards. When you seem victimized as a coach, your players adopt that mentality too eventually. I do not see that though in Michigan. They were in the game in some ways until the 4th and the Threet fumble.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||There were moments ND looked||
There were moments ND looked ok. Especially for a first game. I am going to begrudgingly take ND in this game. Michigan may be a better road team though that I imagine. There are teams who play better away from home. Why this is I do not know. The general consensus is that 1: Notre Dame barely beat SDSU who barely beat a nobody. 2. We just won so that means we win. That well wishing has never worked. Notre Dame, when they get up on you at home, feeds off of that energy. If I was Stevie Brown I'd get ready. Michigan fans need to foresee the loss. And if they do lose don't blame it on a crap call or crap play here or there. Blame it, if it happens, on not putting them away. No offense but, I think yesterdays first drive, was the first time we took a kickoff and went the length of the field. Is that correct? That is not a good stat. Our wins and even scores are as deceiving as is ND's win yesterday. We're just two crappy schools who think we can beat each other. I say ND and it's close. Let it digest all week through the Weis press conferences. Don't knee jerk and think Michigan will blow them out. I hope they do though.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Hey man we're still finding||
Hey man we're still finding out who we can win with! I hope it comes to the point of,"Sheridan.......strike 9...........Sheridan strike 10." "Hey isn't it three strikes and youre out." "Not for the coaches son dude,".........Sheridan strike 11." There's no competition dude, theres only preference. There never was a competition. There was the semblance of one. More sooner than later the Sheridan lovers are going to go more and more quiet. They'll attack your sentence structure. Offer IF filled statements and delusions. In the NFL or anywhere really, this QB race is a done deal. There shouldn't even be a competition at this point based off GAME 2 today. Game 3 to follow.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||you're so intelligent. how||
you're so intelligent. how can I be like you?
|5 years 26 weeks ago||yeah well you know what?||
yeah well you know what? no matter how I write it on here, I was right about it all along. I said Sheridan would start and struggle and Threet would come in. And then I said I hoped I was wrong. Threet is invited and unwanted. I'd transfer today and say Tate and Mr. Beaver have at it! Because Sheridan is over after this year as well. Why Threet, besides the degree, is sticking around I do not know. He should do himself a favor(And RR and Sheridan) and just quit on MI. Steve bail on Michigan.....quit BRO........let them have their offense! QUIT! Let it cycle through with one whole year of Sheridan. No one wants you anyways after this year. They'll all save face and write you off. QUIT on MI they just bitch about you anyhow.

I think I've found Viggo The Carpathian. Remember him?Ghostbuster? He lives:
|5 years 26 weeks ago||I know you're not drinking.||
I know you're not drinking. There was a guy on the FREEP just now who wrote,"I wonder if Sheridan has naked pics of RR or something." We play a lot of teams who are not trying to find a QB, they have one. And those teams will have a QB in rhythm. We have no effing rhythm offensively. This is obvious. I can understand why they have played both and I like it. Dating two girls who both need training is also fun. But when one starts to go haywire and wants more attention you quickly realize you either pick one or lose them both. It's time to pick one of these guys. RR knows what he's doing. I have faith
|5 years 26 weeks ago||yes||
|5 years 26 weeks ago||"IF Sheridan can channel his||
"IF Sheridan can channel his inner Brian Griese(Inner Brian Griese???) and be a "caretaker" kind of QB, and (IF)we can establish some consistency in the ground game, there (MIGHT) be something to work with. Quite honestly, there is not a receiver on the squad I trust to make big plays down the field with any kind of consistency."
NIce article, you have good paragrpahs. I MIGHT like it IF it offered a solution rather than a preference. Keep drinking buddy!
|5 years 26 weeks ago||I dont care cbus, go read||
I dont care cbus, go read something else, like how were going to CRUSH Notre Dame next week. Or how Charlie Weis is an idiot. Or how were back and ready for some ND! Haven't you been reading my "paragraphs" long enough. People want to pay me to shut up! Just go read some fluff about how were gonna beat Notre Dame.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||What are you drinking?||
What are you drinking?
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Whatever QB starts, whoever||
Whatever QB starts, whoever is the running back.....what matters most is attitude. Screw the chest bump. I favor the right hook if your teammate does something extraordinary. They say to play with controlled aggression. My old coach said a violent possession was the real way to play. The offense needs to find who is tough and who is going to lead tomorrow. It's d-day for them guys. Not an end of the world moment but definitely an end to questions.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Before Brian got on the radio||
Before Brian got on the radio show, one of the guys fromt he show mentioned how Big Will was talking to his mom and dad before the game on the sidelines. He was talking about the players from Michigan whose bench press stats improved. I'm now wondering if he was trying to sell them(parents)on reasons to stay committed to Michigan. If he leaves, well,(long pause to hurl and regain composure) no comment. (Longer Pause...20 minutes spent looking at picture of jj from good times who is "medals" sign on pic.) BUT I DON'T GET IT! You're from metro Detroit, your son gets an offer to play at Michigan, you commit and then drop it. For what????? A pro scout could care less where he goes to school for one. And two.....I'll stop, just drive myself even more into this body of whisky. WTF though?
We need to hire Karl Rove to do a public makeover on Rich and the recruiting process or something. Anyone here a major player with Time Warner? Call some people and put the word out. Tell Mike Comrie to get the Duff at a game. Something. The guy who owns the Mets could give us some media friendly moments. I'm telling you that baton twirler guy has to go from the pre game he probably scared Will off.
If Threet starts and starts solid and then finishes lame or out of control. Bench him. I am guessing that's the issue and why he didn't start....no one knows what Threet will show up. Sheridan needs to see himself as the starting QB even when he doesn't start or play. Carrying Chad Henne's luggage was all he knew and now he's the default starter. Default of not bruddah, you gotta be da man. If there's drama at this position tomorrow I'm gonna be pissed.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Good Intel||
Thank you for posting this.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Given time, RR and Co. will||
Given time, RR and Co. will build a monster. Much like this Illinois team faced in last years Rose Bowl. Michigan slid nationally and to get it back you're going to need time and a coach who takes risks to win games. Watch this USC highlight reel before Saturdays Michigan game and ask yourself,"If you knew in 4 years Michigan was gonna shred this well and be as good. Would you chill out and just enjoy the process?" I would, will and am.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Wow, the Minor run after the||
Wow, the Minor run after the pass at 4:46 was scary. For one it was almost the same fall that caused the fumble in the Utah game if I am correct. He almost slams the ball into the turf with his right arm on both runs. I wish I had the video of the Utah fumble to compare but they look quite similar.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||On the Illinois reel, Henne's||
On the Illinois reel, Henne's pass play at the video mark of 4:46 is sorely missed. To the fans from other universities who doubt why University of Michigan,"Alumnus,"Chad Henne is playing Sunday football at Pro Player Stadium in Miami. I would say just watch the velocity and accuracy on that one pass. at the 4:46 mark. Similar play to the infamous Penn State td.

Ok well not to be taken seriously either way. Remind me Dex to tell you my Lloyd Carr story this saturday. It will be less than 2 or 3 minutes or whatever. So anyhow I say a big old phat W is on the agenda this saturday which will lead us into the 13th and NOTRE DAME! I am thinking of going to the USC tOSU game that saturday. Seeing tOSU fans in LA is too tempting. I think MI goes 2-0 in the next few weeks............
