You think it's easy being a douche like Dantonio!?!
You can't handle being that douche! Son, we live in a world that has steroid-shrunken balls. And those balls have to be guarded by men with clear gels and special creams. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Manballsblue? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Denard's neck and you curse Narduzzi. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Bulloch's bowl suspension, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at couch fires, you want me on those balls. You need me on those balls.
We use words like "acurate", "Staee", "whereas" ...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the fragrance of the very douchedom I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a needle and "audit" a class. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!

I love the coat and tie, Brady, but a guy your age really ought to wear pants instead of shorts with that sort of outfit.

Is there videotape?
|3 days 13 hours ago||Thank You.||
That helps to MOLLYfy my concern.
|3 days 13 hours ago||I Hope He Ends Up Fine||
But MDMA is not particularly addictive, and I understand you have to use it chronically to become addicted to it. So it's odd to hear this captioned as a medical problem. (There are a bunch of other good reasons to avoid this stuff, not the least of which is that street versions are (i) often not really MDMA, but cheaper stuff like meth, (ii) even if really MDMA, good luck guessing what dosage you're getting when you buy a tab.)
Maybe Spence is addicted to it, maybe this is cover put up by his parents, but I really do hope that he turns things around. Buckeye or not, I hate to see drugs screw up any person's life.
For the curious:

This is a sad day for our OSU friends, and we should diSPENCE with these sort of jokes. Compassion, man. They need compassion.
|3 days 13 hours ago||MDMA||
I don't know if the rumor is true, but I heard that Wes Welker's troubles went back to Molly too. Of course I heard later that they went to Adderall. Anyway, I'm with you. Once you have been suspended, it becomes an especially good idea to not do drugs.
Although if Spence was using Molly, it helps me imagine this conversation in the OSU training room:
Braxton Miller: Man, Noah, our guys must feel terrible after the VaTech loss. I can't imagine how bad they feel.
Noah Spence: It's no big deal, I feel that way every Tuesday.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Peppers and Taylor||
That makes sense. However, did you think that Hoke would leave the first team in for the final series against ND? And it seems they may have gotten Butt in a bit earlier than optimal (although Butt is explainable because ND is a particularly special game for him, and he had it as a target through his rehab).

56-12 Michigan. Smells like victory, apple pie, and all that's right.

For some posbangs, as Michigan football gets on the right track tomorrow and the weekend begins tonight!
|4 days 18 hours ago||So you had to run this at lunchtime, huh?||
Regardless, this goes here:
|4 days 21 hours ago||I Don't Care Much About The Video, Etc.||
I am not surprised but disappointed that the video makes such a big difference to people. In my mind it's not a game changer, unless the issue is spitting. Ray Rice hit a woman, much smaller than him, hard enough to render her unconscious. We've known that fact for months. What the hell did people think a knockout punch looked like?
The real problem to me is that when people think of "domestic violence" they don't really appreciate how awful a crime it is. But someone at Goodell's level ought to have known what he was dealing with whether he had the video or not. A two-game suspension is no more ridiculous now than it was when it was handed down.
I get that the video is a PR nightmare for the NFL. But a principled organization does not let PR be its primary driver, since that leads to bad short-term decisions. To me, that's the real problem with Goodell - he's driven by principal rather than principle.

Dr. Stanley Milgram, I presume?
|5 days 13 hours ago||Totally Uncalled For||
I see you joined up today, but around these parts it's not cool to call out Michigan's players with abusive epithets. And by "these parts" I mean Planet Earth.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Further to that ...||
Can we also get a ruling on Brandon's collar popping? I'm pretty sure that's something that is only allowed at away games against Rutgers.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Curious.||
Certainly we've seen that Countess is capable in a cushion coverage scenario. But I'm curious why you believe that Countess can't be a capable press coverage player.
I'm not saying you're wrong, but since this is only game 2, I'm reluctant to write off Countess's chances in a bump-and-run scheme. Do you think Countess lacks the shiftiness/mobility to play press, or is it something else?
|5 days 14 hours ago||Cause For Hope||
And I think that's right. This gives me some optimism (and I've noted this in other posts). If the DBs get better in press coverage, the defense as a whole can really make some noise this year. The DBs are still making this transition, and the injuries did not help much against ND. If our DBs can improve their press coverage, QBs won't readily be able to defeat our pressure with three-step drops and quick outs.
The good news is that our guys can learn to press better (esp. Countess, who is a very talented player overall), and if we can get healthy in the defensive backfield, I fully expect we will enjoy watching this defense.
|5 days 14 hours ago||I beg to differ.||
Brandon looks to me like the guy who, when the course has been backed up all day, asks if he can play through at the 17th tee box. Swarbrick looks like a villain from 24 who doesn't get introduced until episode 10 or so.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Subtle difference.||
I think many of us have diverging views on how the military is used by various administrations. But remember that service men and women do not set policy, politicians do.
You can support and thank veterans without being an advocate of their mission. It might surprise some who have not served that many service men and women are not thrilled about how they are deployed from time-to-time. The point is that these men and women have committed to serve in the military, often putting themselves in harm's way, and depriving themselves of precious time with their families. So most of us are grateful for that sacrifice.
I don't fault you for your question, but I think it's misplaced.
|5 days 20 hours ago||True dat.||
I'm guessing that's why Adam captioned this "Monday Presser 9-8-14: Players". That's based on a hunch, but it seems like a pretty good guess.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Article on Butt||
The Detroit News has an ARTICLE on Butt's return today. That article suggests that Jake is not bothered by bad puns based on his last name, especially given that he is a TE. So I'm guessing Jake Butt, at least, is not negging the OP!
It's great to see Butt back on the field. We'll need him for the B1G season, and he should be fully ready by then.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Great Group of Team Representatives||
They chose three great guys to put in front of the media here, who not only were saying the right things but were saying them sincerely.
As I get some more perspective on the ND game, I become increasingly convinced that Golson played great, especially in the first half. The three-step drops were deadly. I expect that our coaches will continue to work with the DBs on press coverage, emphasizing the need to disrupt routes and stay "on" the opposing team's WR's. Better press coverage makes quick outs like Golson was doing much more difficult, since the D-line can bring the heat.
In any event, thanks as always for the transcripts. These are great reading.
|5 days 21 hours ago||Welcome Home!||
Sounds from the tone of your message that you made it back safe and sound, which is fantastic. I hope you're able to take in some games in person now that you've returned.
|6 days 13 hours ago||I don't always support DB||
I don't always support DB's efforts, but I support this one whole-heartedly. Great football tradition, mostly great fans, good academic school, and Austin. Freakin' Austin.
My user name is Everyone Murders, and I approve of this home-and-home!
|6 days 16 hours ago||Be Prepared!||
A lot of this depends upon how you define "well-prepared". By my lights you need to prepare to implement your game plan (which the coaches and team probably did well) but you also have to prepare for when things don't go as planned. It's that latter part of preparedness that seemed to be lacking on Saturday night.
As far as the "nobody's giving Nuss the benefit of a doubt" I've definitely been in the other camp on that point. I think he will turn this offense around, and that we are still primed for a good season. I am glad Michigan hired him, and think we need to give him time with the team before passing any judgments on whether he was a good hire for the program.
But if you thought that Michigan was prepared for a come-from-behind effort on Saturday night (faster tempo, utilizing Funchess deep, checking down, adjusting at the line, two minute drill, clock management, etc.) you were watching a different game than I was. They'll get there (i.e., a well-prepared team), but they're not there yet.
Finally, the genesis of my original comment was that I believe each of Hoke, Mattison and Nussmeier proclaimed without being asked that the team was well-prepared. Coincidence? Maybe. But when that happens after a loss, it sounds a hell of a lot like a talking point to me.
|6 days 18 hours ago||A Good Chance||
First, I know that you were positing your original "question" in jest. Some folks on the board are loaded for bear and lost their sense of humor sometime late Saturday night. They'll find it - don't worry.
But I'm truly optimistic that it's not just a Dumb and Dumber chance. Michigan has a real chance to have a great year. Look at the tire fire year that we all thought MSU was headed for last year, but they figured out a way to not just salvage a rough start but do well. Put Peppers on the field, give the OL some time to gel against a relatively easy schedule, give the offense in general some time to absorb Nussmeier's system, give the DBs some time to work on improving their press coverage (i.e., do a better job of disrupting WRs' timing and routes), and we could have a very successful season.
And if you're buying your Miami (NTM) tickets on StubHub after Saturday's performance and it's still costing you a week's pay? Well, you might want to look for a better job!
|6 days 19 hours ago||And Execution's Twin Brother, Experience||
I agree with this entirely. Furthermore, if the player has his head on straight, the last (say) 3000 snaps will probably look a lot better on average than the first 500 snaps. So you expect "execution" to improve with experience - because experience and practice allow for better execution.
|6 days 19 hours ago||One answer.||
We have had two games, and one admittedly went poorly. But we still have a talented group of players, coaches who are working to get them at their best, and the greatest traditions in college football.
Oh, and we're gonna pants Miami (NTM). They are running into a buzzsaw on Saturday, and it will be good for you (and your kids) to see that sort of energy.
We have a slate of winnable games coming up, and (for once, it seems) an off-week before heading up to MSU. There is a ton of excitement left in this season, and once the ND hangover wears off you'll be glad you came to the games.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Why focus on one line?||
The reason I picked out that line is I've seen the other coaches use very similar language, and it's manifestly false. While I think the result on Saturday is mostly due to Golson playing great against a hurt backfield, Michigan did not look well-prepared to my eyes. And given that the other coaches were using the same (false) line, it sure looked like a talking point to me. Does that unknot your knickers?
I want my school's coaches to be positive and build the players up. And it is still a young team that I believe is on the upswing. But why on earth say the team was well-prepared when it wasn't?
FWIW, I remain optimistic about this season and Michigan's chances. I like Nussmeier and the other coaches.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Talking points||
Seems like talking point 1 this week from Fort Shembechler is "we were very well-prepared".
That's a relief, because my sense was that the team wasn't so well-prepared.
