“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”

Okay I have a few qualms with this. First of all, are we really going to start holding shit against people that hasn't even been proven? A lot of people have been accused of horrific things but that doesn't mean they did them. Regardless, I had to crack up at your quote, "who shouted sexist obscenities to other students." Ummmm lighten up Francis. Seriously? It's a joke of a phrase that went viral online, and he repeated the phrase which is shown in hundreds of youtube videos and has been yelled across college campuses everywhere. I won't even get into the fact that you're unfairly judging this kid for allegedly taking cash for signing his own damn name, but finally you're going to crucify a kid for getting into a BB gun fight and stealing some crab legs? Obviously these are stupid, stupid things but nothing out of the ordinary for an idiotic college kid. I think they can scratch together $4200 out of millions they've made directly due to Jameis Winston.

Exactly. It's just "different" when you're a part of it all.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I hear you, but at the end of||
I hear you, but at the end of the day I just tend to agree with Cleary. A fan's opinion really is irrelevant in my (irrelevant) opinion, and if you find that disrespectful that's fine I hope you find some good endeavours to spend time and money on, but I'd hope you ride this storm out with us.

pick me! ;)

I definitely understand that point and have a lot more respect for the way you put it than most on here. These are just tough times, going to be a lot sweeter when we're back and you know that you've been through the lows with the team.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This kid will represent the||
This kid will represent the university passionately forever. We lose 1 game and half the people on here are contemplating jumping ship. We have a large chunk of fans who are just simply fairweather. But that might be beside the point, I don't know that dude but I'd say that being on the football team and being a part of the AD and wearing the wings every day gives you a certain perspective on things that people bitching on a website just won't understand. He's a part of a Michigan family that is broken right now and it's just sad to say that. These are dark times, no need to make them darker by jumping all over the only people who could truly turn us around.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Dark, indeed. Just sad||
Dark, indeed. Just sad really, we'll be back :)
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This is out of line. Cleary||
This is out of line. Cleary works as hard as everybody else on the team and has certainly done more for the University than you have. Don't stoop to that level and start being a dick.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||So many people playing the||
So many people playing the victim, get over it! He's pretty damn close to being right! I am a fan of Michigan. I have opinions on the state of our Athletic Department. My opinions are truly irrelevant. Thankfully I trust that everything will be sorted out eventually, this is Michigan damnit.
It's funny to say that you want them to keep silent yet we fans won't shut the hell up about everything. At this point, fans are dragging this out and it's absolutely a black eye for all of us (Brandon/Hoke's fault or not). These athletes (all of them not just football) love this university as much or more than all of us and they bleed for the university. You're telling me they can't speak up about it? Bullshit! You speak up when you're pissed about the university and demand change, then he should be able to speak up when he's frustrated with the circus.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||In regards to the players||
In regards to the players tweeting, I know for a fact that this was 0% forced by Dave Brandon or anyone in the AD. The players simply like the guy as he's done a lot of good things here too..just wanted to chip in that that was genuine.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Really pretty sad that this||
Really pretty sad that this thread is created. No need to feed the trolls lurking, take the defeat like a man and remember why it is you love this damn school so much. If you don't feel it any more that's fine, but don't bring us down like this. Just football! Michigan is much more! Personally, I will always love this team and this school regardless of the outcome of any game.

Quit being such a hardo. It's not like he/she's going to tell their advisor to shove it because they heard differently on MGoBlog. I was the same way going in, and it's a good thing to gather as many opinions as possible on something like choosing classes which is so different for every person. That's why the rate my professors Site is so awesome, you're able to get a general grasp for how most people feel about them. Congratulations! Have a great time at Orientation, and see you around Ann Arbor next year!

It's pretty crazy seeing yours and other comments insinuating how easy it is for "most" kids to buy tickets. Being at this school alone is an insanely large debt for most kids I know, let alone gathering up $300 to buy tickets. Before this year I found it absolutely necessary to ask my parents if they could spend money on these tickets. This year, it simply fell down the list. I need rent/books/food/other things every week of the year, so I didn't feel like adding on 300 bucks when I'm going to be able to buy them so much cheaper on the day of the game from drunk kids. So if all of you would like to donate to buying student tickets that'd be pretty cool, but otherwise we're going to find other ways to get there.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||I think you're missing a huge||
I think you're missing a huge point here. Many students aren't buying the tickets because of absurd pricing, a brutal schedule, and the fact that it's been so damn easy to buy tickets off of other students lately. Like $5 before the game (if that) easy. I love watching Michigan football as well, but I'd rather pay a more reasonable price to go watch us battle, especially against an Akron-type opponent.

Well put here, Brian. Next year will be better.

Not so fast, my friend. You're an idiot (nothing personal) if you believe that this job is Mel Pearson's to lose. No way Mel is the ideal guy right now. He's a decent coach who can't break .500 (14-19 this year) at Michigan Tech in the 2nd worst league in hockey, what is he going to do against Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the 3 (improving) State teams?
|30 weeks 6 days ago||not sure who you're talking||
not sure who you're talking too, but every student I know here that is pretty interested in football wishes we'd calm down on this stuff and stay closer to tradition than the uniformz craze...
|34 weeks 1 day ago||There's a very good chance||
There's a very good chance you're severely overreacting. If you've ever encountered the parking people around the Yost Grey lot area, you know that they take their jobs crazy seriously. Like no matter what you say they delay you, I'm sure there was some sort of protocol the people were given, and they followed it..the situation was resolved no need to freak out about it.
|34 weeks 3 days ago||Don't act like you have some||
Don't act like you have some inside info, because if you do you're clearly talking to the wrong people. You aren't an insider Bando so don't come on here and spout false info as if it were on behalf of Mich hockey

Let me take a wild guess...Clare? You only mention it ~8 times a game.

Jon* Good to hear! Hope he and Trouba (and all the other Wolverines) continue to have solid hockey careers for years to come.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Hildebrand is a very good||
Hildebrand is a very good goalie. I think sometimes he doesn't get enough credit...he steals games/keeps them in games ALL the time. Ineptitude absolutely but take it with a serious grain of salt I'm a fan of his...obviously will take Nagelvoort without hesitation!
|43 weeks 5 days ago||I'd assume that those three||
I'd assume that those three would take up the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th line center spots. My money's on (in order) 12, 20, 10, 11.. It'll be interesting. We're missing Center's 1 and 2, so we'll have to push everyone else up
|44 weeks 52 min ago||Worse than we expected? Get||
Worse than we expected? Get outta here. Did you watch the Minnesota series? This team will not be pushed around in Big Ten play. Will they win many games? No. If I had to guess, I think they'll finish 5th or 6th, most likely 5th unless Penn State gets hot. Any team with a goalie as good as Hildebrand has a shot, and you're underrating several of their other players. I'd argue they were worse last year.
|44 weeks 4 hours ago||We'll be missing Compher Copp||
We'll be missing Compher Copp Motte (all assuming they make the US Junior team, which in my personal opinion we'll only miss 2) and we're playing outdoors. On top of that, throw in the fact that State isn't as horrible as they were expected to be due to excellent goaltending and great freshmen and Western also isn't as bad as their rating. Remember that Tech battled us hard at Yost. This definitely isn't "in the bag" though I do understand what you're trying to say.

Yeah he was at a pregame earlier this year. Nice guy.
|45 weeks 5 days ago||Have you guys watched this||
Have you guys watched this year? Not condescending, just wondering. Boo has struggled a ton, quite frankly he hasn't been very good so far. He's a fantastic player who will be very successfuly in hockey, but so far this year he hasn't played near his potential. I think he'll pick it up sooner rather than later, but doubtfully in time for WJC anyway.
|47 weeks 5 days ago||DISCLAIMER: Don't take this||
DISCLAIMER: Don't take this the wrong way, I'm genuinely asking.
Obviously after the accident he had many injuries both emotionally and physically, my question is what do people think is holding him back from playing in the future? Physical injuries from the accident? I'm truly curious I simply want to know. I'm pulling for him, hope he finds a way on the court!
