|2 years 24 weeks ago||You hit the nail on the head||
We've seen a number of performances this year where Michigan has gotten great looks and really won games by creating 2 pt. chances off backcuts, guys taking it to the bucket, etc. When teams are as solid on D as MSU and OSU, this became much more difficult. Ohio does not have this kind of swarming and physical defense. While it is solid, we will be able to generate good looks. Despite what all the media seems to be thinking, Cooper is, in no way, Aaron Craft's equal on the defensive side of the ball, so Burke will get his opportunities. Ohio's D will take chances, and my guess is Michigan exploits it with backcuts, ballfakes and driving to the bucket. If those generate open 3 point looks, fantastic, but I don't think this will be a game where Michigan is forced to pass around the perimeter for 30 seconds then fire up a contested 3, which is when we struggle.

they're called Hookers after they're dead, Cyril!

He'd have to quit baseketball too?!
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Agreed||
Xavier in the first round would be rough. Definitely wouldn't mind seeing Louisville in the second though. That's the kind of team that Michigan eats alive: a team that relies solely on superior athletes to win.

Tom had buckle up when he was trying to be cryptic. I know you may not have meant to imply anything with this comment, but we need you to develop one so you can bust it out when it's time.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Correct||
The other part of the scouting report for VT was that they bring safeties, linebackers, everyone up and like to bring them on blitzes. Where Borges has failed is he has no hot reads/audibles for Denard when it comes. Everytime, receivers are running 15 yds downfield, so Denard has no where to go.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||What the F is Borges trying to do?||
This offense seems very, very, feeble. Seriously. I think Borges has done a great job all year, but the hell is he thinking right now?
|2 years 34 weeks ago||In 4 years||
This team still has not learned how to defend a bubble screen/quick hitch...I know it takes athletes to do, but you would think even once we could stop it by accident?
|2 years 34 weeks ago||VT fans are loud||
Maybe it's just where the cameras/mics are, but the VT fans sound a whole lot louder than M fans...what's the ratio in the stadium for anyone whos there?
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Yesterday, he was||
First off, yes the lions got the shaft by the officials yesterday. Still, if they would have stopped GB one more time, they win. Their D deserves plenty of blame as well.
But, Flynn was the better QB yesterday. Better completion percentage, fewer INT's, more TD's, and the crucial game winning drive in crunch time. And Flynn doesn't have the athletic freak that is Calvin Johnson catching anything thrown within 7 feet of him.
Stafford had a great day. He's proven himself to be a very, very good quarterback. There's not arguing that he is more established right now. Whether Flynn will reach that level will be found out over time. But yesterday, Flynn was better, by pretty much any objective or subjective measure.

Dylan has officially turned on the "Buckle Up" sign...Now whether he meant it like Tom used to, I don't know

|2 years 50 weeks ago||already found him on the gigapixel fancam...||
|2 years 50 weeks ago||so impressed by Hawthorne||
the UFR may show some mistakes I didn't see, but what I did see was him flying all over the place, hitting people and just being an animal...still remember one play where he came on a blitz and just LAUNCHED himself at Rees...it was glorious
|2 years 50 weeks ago||Gotta say,||
Watching those pom-poms on t.v. was impressive. They definitely added to the crowd, and as much as I hate to say it, reminded me of an SEC night game. I don't think that's bad, is it? Regardless, it made the place look more rockin than usual.

like dinosaurs or water...
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Hiller||
was a hyped because he had a dynamite freshman year. And if I remember correctly, he was throwing to Greg Jennings and Tony Scheffler. No offense to Hiller cause he had a solid career, but I could've had a dynamite year throwing to those two guys in the MAC...
|3 years 2 weeks ago||The fanbase||
is awesome as well. Passionate people that support the team through everything, and the players recognize this closeness. Suarez was a GREAT pick up and is already showing that. It's gonna be a great year...... YNWA
|3 years 2 weeks ago||I would probably go with||
Augusta, GA...followed closely by the Grand Tetons/Jackson Hole...now if only I could play that certain golf course....
|3 years 2 weeks ago||wow...||
I don't think either of those places would be in my top 5-10...but good for Sleeping Bear dunes and will definitely vote for it...
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Barnett can be explosive||
and definitely a fiery player, but he was prone to mental errors that really hurt GB's defense at times...plus his emotion sometimes was a distraction for the team, but definitely a solid player...
|3 years 10 weeks ago||"Over There"||
This needs to happen...It is literally perfect
|3 years 15 weeks ago||UCONN||
Last year...43ish yd scamper...awesome little bit cause he called it quite early and so matter of factly...
|3 years 19 weeks ago||props||
I've been really encouraged by this thread...kudos to the board tonight...its been a long week at work, saw the thread topic and agreed with it, but was expecting to see and hear a lot more "Rich Rod was garbage/Braylon can say whatever he wants because he was a true Michigan man", but I gotta say well done fellas...
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Oberon and Woodford Reserve||
terrible, but delicious combo...
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Are you talking about league play only?||
Because if you look at Central's out of conference schedule, it was quite tough from what I've read...played a number of top teams from the East side of the state as well as great teams from other states in tournaments and exhibitions...while their league may be weak, the fact that they've continually played with and beaten most of the teams they face from the east side of the state in the playoffs would seem to indicate that they are just plain better.
|3 years 22 weeks ago||disagree about the emotional attachment||
It's definitely more of an individual preference...I see how football is the bigger draw, but as a relatively recent student, if you wanted to, you were very close and involved with the team....you'd talk to them on and around campus, go to special practices/dinners with them, talk to them well before games etc... players and coaches would come to meetings and talk, and the athletic department did everything in their power to draw students...it was a very involving season and made one feel extremely close to the team...
|3 years 22 weeks ago||I'm an idiot...||
I will now go back to 6th grade and work on reading comprehension, Billy Madison-style...
|3 years 22 weeks ago||unlikely to beat AZ?||
I'd think that'd be a very winnable game for this team...for that matter, UCONN or SDSU would have been as well out West...then another shot at OSU? Duke win, without a doubt...a win like that can spark something special...can everyone imagine what that would've done for the team's confidence going forward in the tourney?
