This was at a luncheon I was at in downtown GR. He did indeed call them chickens, and seemed confused as to why that illicited so much laughter.
He also said, "I don't know why they won't play us . . . well actually I do."
My cool story bro is that as he left the podium, I snuck out of the room and grabbed him in a back hallway and he kindly paused for a picture even though he was running late to a coaches clinic. I don't know how to post a pitcture or I would do it.

This is a no brainer. When I was in law school at ND, the women's team was very strong. They went to the final four a bunch of times and I think even played in the championship game one year I was there, if I'm not mistaken. Needless to say, they were a top 5 program all 3 years I was there.
The girls team would come to the gym and play pick up with the boys. They had so many advantages. 1) they were all in shape, we were not. 2) they were a team, we were a random collection of 5 guys. 3) they made us play with a girls ball. Nonetheless, I don't think I ever participated in or saw a girls victory. Just a random collection of guys playing with a girls ball beat them every single time. They were not blow outs, but they were always wins.
An elite group of 9th graders who are in shape and actually know how to play together would destroy the girls, no doubt.

People close to him said he was afraid of quitting because he thought if he didn't have coaching to live for he might die. Sad to see that seems possibly true.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Its funny to read through the||
Its funny to read through the posts. A lot of people disagree, and that is fine, but probably 70% of the people who disagree don't add a single substantive thing to the discussion.
So because you disagree with me, I know nothing about the opponent, basketball, or the coach? You do not know me, know nothing about how much basketball I have played, coached, or watched. Apparently Beilein and I have starkly different philosophy's about T.O.'s and stemming a run. But your ad hominem attack when you know nothing about me is ridiculous.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||You could stop reading, stop||
You could stop reading, stop posting, stop doing a lot of things. The CRAZY thing about a message board is sometimes people post things. I know, I know, weird. If you don't like what I posted, then don't read it. Or, actually have something to contribute other than just pretending to be smarter than everyone by only ever criticizing other posts all the time. I'd love to hear you actually say something substantive instead of some smart ass snarky remark like always.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I am absolutely proud of how||
I am absolutely proud of how the team fought back, there is no doubt about it. And like I said, I like Beilein and he is a good coach. But not calling a single timeout is nonsensical.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Look, people can get mad, and||
Look, people can get mad, and that's fine. I'm not saying he is a bad coach or that I want him gone or anything crazy like that, but he cost us this game. It happens, players have bad games, so do coaches. This was a bad game for Beilein. I would love to hear one person put forth a valid reason to not call one timeout when the other team goes up 20 in 10 minutes, which is an absurd feat by the way.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Borges is a good coach, but||
Borges is a good coach, but he had a bad game. You don't call one screen, one draw, one trap? I mean, they blitzed almost every single play in the 2nd half, and you call an empty set with no backs to protect? And don't even get me started on the 4th down call, I almost threw up.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||They don't care at all. Not||
They don't care at all. Not one of them is embarrased of ashamed. All that matters is the W. I have no doubt that Dantonio won't even consider punishing Gholston. It may come down from the league, but not Thugtonio.

It says coming soon for me, anyone else?

I can't get the videos to work, anyone else have that problem?
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Maybe I have you confused||
Maybe I have you confused with someone else. There was a HS coach who got on here and broke down stuff about defense and offense all the time. I thought his tag was coach something, and I thought it was you. Perhaps not.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Much appreciated. And duh on||
Much appreciated. And duh on Meijer, brain fart I guess.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Dude, Coach, can I ask what||
Dude, Coach, can I ask what happened to you? You used to post some of the best stuff on this site. I learned a ton about the X's and O's of football from you and then you seemed to just stop.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||I am so confused what this||
I am so confused what this post is about. Is it about COD or Arenas? And what happened on twitter? And who is your dude? And why do we care about any of this? And how many sentences can I start with "and"?

Take it easy on Lee guys. Not everyone is going to pick Michigan as well as we are, we are fans and biased. I find him entertaining. He may not be the most accurate game picker out there, but he isn't annoying.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Personally, I'd rather sit in||
Personally, I'd rather sit in row 90 than row 6. I've had seats in row 2 and row 9 and both times I felt like it was hard to see even though I was around the 40 yard line.

I just moved to Rockford a few months ago and have a 4 month old son. I am looking forward to becoming an arrogrant prick in a few years, thanks guys. Maybe I'll start now.

I resent the idea that there is anything wrong with wanting a good old fashion, regular cheesburger, of which Five Guys is probably the best around.

There is just a little bit of Tyson in his voice. When he says "infectious" it really sounded like Iron Mike.

hmmmmm, that would seem to be bad news about Big Will and Black

I heard Ace Williams will be there
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Let's not ignore the fact||
Let's not ignore the fact that the stories were corraborated by 8 former players and even a few former coaches. That's not random receipts and pictures.
Also, the guy further proves he doesn't know what he is talking about by saying Miami isn't a repeat violator. He says that the last football violations are too far away, which is true (I think). However, the rule does not require the repeat violation to be in the same sport. Miama was recently sanctioned in baseball. We all remember that danger of repeat violation status for stretch gate over the Ed Martin stuff, obviously different sports.

Depends on the pics. Is it just of players getting tattoo's? No big deal, that proves nothing.

Wait did I miss something? Why is tom behind a paywall?

My dad was on a work trip in Arizona and was playing golf with one of his employees that came with him, and they caught up to a twosome of Jeff Jones and Verlander. They joined them and played together. My dad said Verlander hits a golf ball as far as anyone he has ever seen.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||I have to agree with above||
I have to agree with above poster. I will never understand why fans spend so much time on another teams board. No offense Irish, but I just don't get it.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, I'll believe the NCAA will hammer them when it happens and not before
