...if I didn't think it was being run by good guys...Darker Blue, glad you had a great day...Seth, I hope things are going as well for your family as they can right now. It says a lot that you thought to give to someone else at a time like this.
|2 days 11 hours ago||something else the boxscore doesn't capture:||
The play in the 2nd half in which DG was smoked by an unblocked DB but still managed to stay on his feet, spin away, and deliver a catchable ball to a WR.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Agreed||
We saw a young unit still finding itself in a new system. How good wiil it be this year? I don't know, but this was a solid effort that shouldn't,IMO, change anyone's opinion of where the season is going (for good or bad).
|2 days 14 hours ago||Green||
It was a relief to see him display the vision that he did. This was easily his best day at Michigan, IMO. I was afraid we were forever going to see him plow into the backs of lineman.
|3 days 16 hours ago||I doubt people are using MDMA everyday in the morning too||
I don't know about cocaine. But anything that makes you feel good offers an escape from depression, even if it's only for one or two nights per week. Our hypothetical person might also be drinking on the other nights or smoking pot or whatever.
Long story short: I don't think you can expect self-medication to align perfectly with rational, consistent treatment of a mental health issue. So I don't have trouble imagining someone using E to deal with depression.
|3 days 16 hours ago||MDMA||
I believe it can also blow out your serotonin system, so to speak, if you use it enough.
|3 days 16 hours ago||yep||
I don't understand why that's hard to understand. People self-medicate for anxiety and depression with booze, pot, cocaine, you name it.
That doesn't mean it's a good idea. If anything, it shows you why people need to connect with doctors.
|3 days 17 hours ago||I thought Brian made...||
...a good point on WTKA a day or so ago, namely that it's not a good sign (I'm paraphrasing) that the defensive coaches thought (seemingly) all offseason that Countess could be part of a press man scheme and then, after the ND game, said, "Oh...you know who's not at all built for press man? Blake Countess."
|4 days 16 hours ago||Makes me feel better||
It's always stressful when Mom and Dad are fighting.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Agreed||
IIRC, Magnus liked Isaac coming out of high school better than Green or Smith. And he rushed for 5.9 ypc last year, which is impressive even if he often played in garbage time.
|4 days 17 hours ago||this was such an odd game||
As I've thought more about it, I think you have to see the absence of Gallon as a big part of what happened. DG lost his safety valve, and he went from having two known quantities (Gallon and Funchess) to just one. Gallon was almost always there to make big plays even when Michigan was fundamentally unsound last year. On Saturday, in contrast, the basic structure of the offense was better, but only Funchess was there to put any Zissou on the field.
|4 days 18 hours ago||yep - I was wrong||
See my 2nd reply to Reader71.
|4 days 19 hours ago||It did feel worse||
And I take back my explanation for why 2009's ypc was less than 2012's. The biggest difference between the two years was Denard: 5.1 ypc on 69 carries in 2009 v. 7.2 ypc on 177 carries in 2012.
|4 days 20 hours ago||That surprised me too||
I just looked at the 2009 stats, and my guess is that sacks of Forcier were the difference. He only rushed for 2 ypc that year.
|4 days 21 hours ago||Excellent||
You have yourself a deal. And I hope I lose.
|4 days 21 hours ago||I cannot upvote this idea enough!||
My hat is off to you, resph1.
I hate to bet against the team, but I will happily give $50 to Hope for Pahokee if Michigan wins more than eight games this year (including the bowl).
Anyone willing to give $50 to Hope for Pahokee if Michigan wins eight or fewer games?
|5 days 15 hours ago||My confidence in the Hoke regime is very shakey||
But his press conferences are not one of the reasons for this. Most of us would be happy if he were winning games but using his press conferences to discuss his ideas about alchemy.
|5 days 15 hours ago||He was referring to a medical redshirt?||
I don't know, but that could happen despite Peppers playing the first game - not that I expect this to occur.
EDIT: beaten to the punch by resph1.
|5 days 16 hours ago||2006?||
PSU's QB(s) had a bad day against Michigan that year.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Ross||
It would be a shame in my non-expert opinion to have him sit for big chunks of the year. He brings a lot of fire to the table, it always seems to me. And Michigan can use all of that it can get.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Curious George||
He's an underrated coaching candidate. He's never stuck in a rut.
|6 days 12 hours ago||you were right!||
I incorrectly said "at Iowa" instead of "at home to Iowa." It's fixed now.
|6 days 16 hours ago||A good call||
Faeries are always either high on meth or trying to score meth. You don't want them around.
|6 days 17 hours ago||I agree re: Va Tech and Washington||
But playing them both in the same season is pretty cool.
|6 days 21 hours ago||I don't remember the exact number...||
...but the OL came into the season with something like 12 combined starts.
|6 days 21 hours ago||I'm not sure that...||
...anyone is defending the Hoke regime generally. I'm not. I just think this one issue is explainable.
Most of us wanted Borges gone. Most of us were very happy when Nuss was hired. But you have to expect some bumps on the road even when you're making a transition to a better system.
|6 days 22 hours ago||I have some confidence int his b/c...||
...Space Coyote agreed with me when I said it yesterday: It seems very likely to me that what we saw was a young unit (DG is the only senior) playing only its second game in a new system in front of a loud and hostile crowd. They may simply have been struggling to get themselves organized.
It's easy to say the offense should be able to line up quickly when you're talking about that in a vacuum. But you also have to get the right people on the field and then make sure everyone knows what he's doing before you snap the ball. Going quickly isn't going to help if you've got the wrong guys on the field or if DG breaks the huddle with even one guy not sure of what he's doing.
Nuss obviously understands tempo. And they apparently practiced going fast a lot. And Coach Hoke seemingly lets his coordinators do their thing. I don't have a lot of confidence in Coach Hoke anymore, but I doubt he'd let Nuss spend a lot of practice time on going fast and then, before or during a game, tell him to go slowly.
|1 week 15 hours ago||True, but...||
...that's one thing I wish people would let go. I would be happy if he farted the national anthems of the members of NATO at every press conference if he were winning most of his games.
|1 week 16 hours ago||This is good stuff (well, bad stuff, but you get the idea)||
This is front page material, IMO.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Huh||
I figured Temple.
