Love the "dilithium reinforced"
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Unbelievable||
Lloyd Brady did it again.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Off Topic, but...||
Lloyd Brady does it again. In the top right of the Texas flag pic. He has a strong case for MGoHOF candidacy.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||It seems like player||
It seems like player development and individual attitude is way too important to get hung up on these luxury problems associated with early commits. If these kids have 4* talent and we sneak a 5* here or there along the way, the rest is on the coaches and the players' character.
The all too obvious case that stands out in my mind is Mattison's 2011 Renaissance - and with a bunch of top 250/300 talent the difference between #50 Overall and #75 Overall doesn't carry that much weight for me. There are the Chuck Woodsons and Reggie Bushs of the college world, but betting the house on finding them doesn't seem nearly as smart as grabbing 20 other highly talented teammates.

I always wanted to see us try and perpetuate this rivalry with them, where we've had some pretty decent performances (and awful ones as well). Does the B1G-ACC challenge make it impossible for this to happen every year like the idea for ND?
|3 years 2 days ago||Hockey would be just plain||
Hockey would be just plain dangerous to crossover. The fact that the women don't play with contact makes it a totally different game. One solid check from a decent male player would most likely put a female out for the game. Contact sports aren't really fair to compare when size and testerone are so important.
|3 years 2 days ago||Bowling||
This is a sport I always wanted to see men's and women's pros go at it in. I know bowling is sometimes tough to consider a sport, but for that very reason it seems like testerone is not much of an advantage here. It doesn't help to be faster or taller or bigger, although I have to imagine ball speed and weight are fairly important. I'm not a bowler, so some input would be nice.
|3 years 2 days ago||Ohhhhh, the golf ball into||
Ohhhhh, the golf ball into the hole sound. That's therapeutic for me - I wish I could play it on loop for a half hour or so every night before I fall asleep.
|3 years 4 days ago||Are the only restrictions||
Are the only restrictions size, weight, and number of panels? Could someone use a rubber ball if they really wanted to?
|3 years 5 days ago||Agreed. Gotta have crazy||
Agreed. Gotta have crazy legs.
|3 years 1 week ago||Missing cast members||
It looks like Bo, Bret, and Bill are being written off the show.
|3 years 1 week ago||If the site is gonna redirect||
If the site is gonna redirect to something, HD food isn't a bad option. Could use drink pairings though...
|3 years 1 week ago||AHAHAHAHA||
I almost like the Schadenfreude more than getting the recruits themselves, almost.
The disgust on the RCMB is rich, decadent you could say. And seeing Jon L. recruiting comparisons get worked into the mix...well this is a symphony green and white pain.
|3 years 1 week ago||I'm pretty sure this O-line||
I'm pretty sure this O-line could hold off whatever the apocalypse has for us long enough for Devin and/or Shane to take us to a B1G Championship.
|3 years 1 week ago||I've been wondering about||
I've been wondering about that - is that considered one of the major advantages to getting kids to commit early (besides locking down 4-star talent of course)? So the coaches can try and go for home run recruits for the remaining year or so?
Clearly this a Michigancentric question, since I have to imagine places like USC or Texas or FSU don't worry as much with a wealth of talent within walking distance to campus.
|3 years 1 week ago||This video is almost comical||
This video is almost comical - every play this kid is 5 yards into the backfield almost instantly. Hoke and Mattison are gifted, but it's tough to see him making it past the Mason-Dixon line.
|3 years 1 week ago||I just think of @MSU Jan,||
I just think of @MSU Jan, 2011 - these guys gave it all to the program.
|3 years 1 week ago||Yost didn't like blacks and||
Yost didn't like blacks and catholics, I'm sure the Irish weren't high on his list, and you can probably include Italians, any type of Eastern European, or anyone east of Poland to the Pacific for that matter.
Who did Yost like? Starting to run out of "Yost-eligible" players
|3 years 1 week ago||Say it again brother||
As if seeing ohio and Michigan snatch up recruits like hotcakes wasn't bad enough for every other B1G school, having almost every analyst agree that the conference is regressing to its former two team power struggle, a modern day big two little ten, must be incredibly disheartening.
|3 years 1 week ago||Chuck's celebration||
I think that Woodson shoulder-pad shimmy is my favorite M-player celebration ever. Has any other player imitated that?
|3 years 1 week ago||I was pretty distraught when||
I was pretty distraught when we moved to Adidas because I normally think their shoes look like crap, but I my sentiments completely changed with the Crazy 8. They have that bulky, heavy duty black and white look that made me think new age Fab Five gear.
|3 years 1 week ago||Guest Announcer||
I know the WWE isn't real, but wouldn't it be great to have Jim Ross guest announce one U-M game against an undermatched, beaten down opponent?
This call would have been appropriate after Courtney Avery took that last fumble to the house against Minnesota last year:
|3 years 1 week ago||Totally agree.||
I'm working abroad now and the academic recognition is very satisfying - although few things warm my heart like seeing a Block M t-shirt randomly across the ocean.
|3 years 1 week ago||Excellence is in the details||
Leaving no stone unturned in the rivalry is essential. There's a certain level of craftsmanship here that is just...mwahh, bellissima. Bravo.

This guy probably has muscles in his shit.

Crapping at work just got infinitely better. You da man elaydin.
|3 years 1 week ago||That's Lurie Engineering||
That's Lurie Engineering Center/The IOE Building, and having been an IOE, I have a good feeling that's not where F after the DT is cumming from (get it? - heh).
As for depth, I look at these rankings like recruiting rankings, very dependent not just on quality but quantity as well.

And we're up to #8 in DTF Universities.
|3 years 1 week ago||(No subject)||
|3 years 1 week ago||Offenses don't fail, people do||
At what point will people start saying "Why Coach _____ failed" instead of "Why the spread at ____ University failed" ?
It's 2012, it's not like the spread is some wild new offense. It makes just as much sense to me to have an article that says, "Why the ProStyle offense failed at OleMiss"
