What a coincidence that movie is playing right now on AMC.

Now that's what I call a close encounter.
|8 hours 33 min ago||I kind of understand the line||
I kind of understand the line of thinking that basically says "you can only improve so much in one year." The thing is, we were all saying that after Hoke/Mattison took over for Rrod/GERG, I believe the rhetoric around here was "Mattison would be a genius savant if they can improve into the top 50 on defense." They finished 16th. We also said that about Urban at OSU, a team that had gone 6-7 in 2011 and was ranked around 110 in total offense, and look how that turned out. I'm not predicting an undefeated season but elite coaches can turn things around very quickly.

It's funny how Buckeye fans accuse US of worshipping our coach like he's a deity.

Beaver. But strangely it smelled like fish.
|10 hours 7 min ago||I can't stand listening to||
I can't stand listening to Huge most of the time, but somehow he seems to do very good interviews.
|10 hours 10 min ago||Okay but if you put a "solid"||
Okay but if you put a "solid" QB on last year's team who has a very good TO ratio, does that make a difference in our record? There is also the fact that the position coaches were massively upgraded at almost every spot.
Also, more importantly, in any other season preview if you were to say "mostly the same football team" (i.e. tons of returning starters) it would foreshadow a HUGE improvement in overall performance, but for some reason for many this is somehow a bad thing.
I will add, many seem to think there is no talent on this team. Look at the offer lists of the guys in the 2 deep. Most of them, if they had not come here, would have gone to places like Ohio State, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, MSU among other schools who seem to do a great job finding talent. It will take some molding but talent is definitely there.

The old Shea Stadium. It sucked.
Not really much else to add.
|12 hours 7 min ago||I never realized that Crystal||
I never realized that Crystal Ballz were so strictly regulated.
|14 hours 8 min ago||Never been to Blue Lake, but||
Never been to Blue Lake, but I went to Interlochen and it was great, I guess. I didn't have anything to compare it to.
|14 hours 41 min ago||If you don't think this is a||
If you don't think this is a big deal, just ask 11 Warriors. The news appears to have crashed their server.
|14 hours 48 min ago||TODAY! Because every day is||
TODAY! Because every day is better than the day before, if you make it!
|14 hours 50 min ago||ever since Hoke was hired||
every day is worse than the day before, so every time you see me, it is the worst day of my life.
|15 hours 22 min ago||Yep, that will surely be||
Yep, that will surely be enough to keep them out of the playoff

I must say, I would rather have a boring band who doesn't do shit like this, than... you know
|16 hours 4 min ago||Yeah, that movie came out||
Yeah, that movie came out right before my freshman year of high school, when I attended band camp for the first time. It was weird because I love the movie, but hated the fact that I could not mention BAND or BAND CAMP or anything to do with playing an instrument to anyone who wasn't in band because they would inevitably think they were the first person to mockingly say "THIS ONE TIME AT BAND CAMP LULZ!"
|16 hours 6 min ago||It would be hilarious if OSU||
It would be hilarious if OSU really passed on Mitchell in hopes to get Corley, and then both end up at Michigan. Especially if Victor ends up in the SEC.
|16 hours 38 min ago||Seems as good a time as any||
Seems as good a time as any to revisit this, in case anyone forgot or missed it
|16 hours 44 min ago||That's some tough||
That's some tough competition. How can you be better at football than a guy whose name is "Psalm Wooching" or "DeForest Buckner"? It will be fun to watch this competition play out this year.

Okay so let's compare the survey from 10 years ago.
|19 hours 10 min ago||Jeez people just can't let||
Jeez people just can't let stuff go. He was asked a simple question and he answered it directly, probably trying to give props to his current employer. What did you expect him to say? "Well I wasn't welcomed well at Michigan but I did such a shitty job coaching the defense that it overshadowed all the arrogant shit heads around that program."
|1 day 4 hours ago||Things have changed?||
I'm guessing he wants the ribs instead of the pulled pork?
|1 day 8 hours ago||He had SOME highly rated||
He had SOME highly rated players. It took Harbaugh three solid years at Stanford before he was bringing in decent classes and even then it isn't like they were top 5 or something.
Michigan's recruiting will hit the next gear once they start winning. Given the context, the fact that he's likely to pull in a top 10 class is really impressive.

According to Dave Brandon, yes.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Not sure that this is||
Not sure that this is necessarily good for Michigan. Upshur could become that much more difficult to get.
|2 days 15 hours ago||For me the most exciting news||
For me the most exciting news here is the Drake Harris one. They badly need athletes at WR, not undersized tight ends. I mean, there's a place for that but not every gosh damn one of them.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Yep||
40 something dad with his wife on their way to pick up their pre teen kids from their last day of school. Tragic hardly begins to describe it.
|3 days 4 hours ago||What about selling them on StubHub?||
Would that be a dick move?
