gone on his mormon mission yet? because if he hasn't he might have to miss next season... or has he already gone and is now 32 with a family of 4??? because it always seems like BYU has really good teams when they get a bunch of players back from their missions and they're all in their mid 20's...

do you remember anything else about that 5-0 win over purdue??? i was at that game and it was by far the worst weather i have ever seen at a michigan football game, and i was at the 2 northwestern games that get brought up a lot around here... so i think that the 5-0 win over purdue should get a pass...
as for the 1995 virgina game, virgina was good that year... they also went 9-4 with a win over #2 FSU..
in 96 we beat MSU 45-29... and the 96 team was ranked as high as #9 and beat a #5 colorado team and the #2 buckeyes... yeah they lost some bad games but by no means did they lose their "swagger"...

will tell you that he still should have caught the ball either way... the worst part for me was going to school on monday and having to deal the my 5th grade teacher who was an msu grad... he came up to me right away and said that was a penalty...

|1 week 6 days ago||what is...||
really hurting hoke is that he set the ceiling so high in his first year by winning 11 games and ALL michigan fans expectations got a little out of whack after that... hoke had a lot of vets on that team and its been a constant rebuild ever since... even if RR would have still been our coach he would have ran into the same problems because of his piss poor recruitng at certain positions (mainly OL)...
hoke was put behind a massive 8 ball when he took this job and I don't care who the coach is there was no way in hell he was going to win between 9 and 12 games with what upper classmen he was left with and then having to start so many under classmen... a lot of people don't realize that close to 50% of the players that RR got to sign LOI's either transferred out, never played a down or got kicked out school... hoke has done a great job at getting kids to come here but a lot of them got thrown out on to the playing field long before they were ready to play, that should tell you something about the level of talent that RR was bringing into this program... (sorry for the 2 different kinds of font, i had to copy and paste from an email i sent to one of my suite holders last year when i talking him down from the "ledge")
we should all know what i just said by now since we all live on this site but it has to be brought up over and over again until it sinks into peoples brains...
when people talk about firing hoke because of him not putting a winning product on the field i simply say to them, "so you want michigan to turn into michigan state and switch out coaches every 3 or 4 years and then have to start all over again?" most of them understand what i am saying and then you have the ones that only believe what they hear on the radio or read in the paper so their answer is yes...
you bring up 5 examples of teams that had multiple of coaches before they found that ONE coach that got everything going in the right direction for them... what you should do is look at all of the schools that are still looking for that ONE coach and still haven't found it...

in T.O. might be good but if you were to put an alll star team from there against an all star team from Detroit it wouldn't even be close... the Detroit team would just run them into the ground... there is some serious up and coming talent comng out of Detroit...

the day off also, wait i've had the whole week off and probably next week also... LOL... i guess the one good thing about being laid off is that i get to spend more time with my 10 month old twins...
the worst part was depoisting my last pay check yesterday and then getting chripped by a comerica bank teller that is a state fan... he start giving me shit because i was wearing a michigan bball hoodie... he was trying to throw the big ten tourny championship game in my face and when i brought up that we were 2 and 1 against state he says you're going to bring up the games where we had our water boy playing... i looked at him and called him a typical state fan and walked out...

and get yourself a 60", 70" or even an 80" TV instead of a projector. It will last longer and you won't have to worry about picture quality at all. I work in the audio/video world and it amazes me that some of my customers think that projectors are the way to go, but some have scaled back on the amount of projectors they are putting in their new stores (think chicken wings) because they know that projectors are dying "breed" if you will... projectors are only meant conference rooms, or large scale venus like concerts...
but if you have your heart set on getting a projector Brookstone sells LED lampless projectors. They're pocket projectors and hook up via HDMI, follow this link: http://www.brookstone.com/portable-projectors this would be the best option for an in house projector...
as for the TVs Sharp has the market cornered for the consumer versions of 70" and 80" TVs at a low cost. you should be able to get a 70" for around $2000 and an 80" for around $3600... now if you want to get crazy there is always the pro models that Samsung, Panasonic and NEC make in these sizes but for those you will need to take out loan...
