|1 week 2 days ago||Still the same... positive expectations.||
I still really think Borges has to go (like most people). Something that concerns me is that, even when the team had success on offense this year, it just seemed like nothing came easy. Most plays just felt like a chinese fire drill. Maybe I'm just too pessimistic of the offense, but it just seems like there was usually something that went wrong. I attribute that to the youth, and offensive line issues, so that is my reason for optimism for the future. I think they'll, at the very least, be more consistently competent (without Borges). The future is still bright my friends.
|1 week 3 days ago||Seriously||
My dad isn't selling his tickets. He's being a real man and bringing an excessive amount of beer to drink before the game. I suggest the same thing to everybody, whether you're going to the game or watching from home.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Oh Lord||
I don't know if I could handle another head coaching search involving infinite never-gonna-happen rumors. I'd eat my own shoe if Les Miles came to Michigan. We've heard it too much. Seriously hold me to that shoe thing, I'd be happy to do it.
I'd be surprised if Al Borges gets fired, but at least that's possible. I'm all for Gorgeous Borges getting out of town at this point.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Uh Oh||
Sounds like a job Narduzzi would be straight up silly not to jump on. Right?

I can't imagine a more enjoyable tourney run. Even if a Michigan team won the title in the future, I probably wouldn't like all of the players on the team as much.

A lot of people are uncles, and some of them are idiots.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Lone UM Fan||
I'll be partying tonight for Halloween, then waking up to tailgate sometime Saturday. I'm kind of the lone UM fan in my group of friends, though I'm sure all of them will have my back. Two or three of them are really just there for the party. They'll most likely root for state. I've never been to East Lansing on a gameday before, so I'm not sure what to expect exactly. I don't foresee any major issues, but I may grow tired of getting shit at some point. Who knows? It definitely helps to know that there will be plenty of other Michigan fans there. Hopefully I'm not on my own all day. No idea where we'll be watching the game, but hopefully not a bar. I can't see that being a friendly environment. It'll be a great weekend regardless, though.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||"We"||
I remember reading an interesting Grantland article discussing the "we" issue in sports. I agree and I cringe when somebody says/writes that.
There's definitely nothing wrong with somebody rooting for whatever team they want. I was born and raised a Michigan fan, and I'm sure as hell not going to ditch the team and my fandom just because some guy says I have to be an Alumni to cheer. Sounds pretty childish to me.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Oops||
My sincere apologies.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Some hope||
Some hope is better than being a depressingly negative person that everybody hates. That's not referring to anybody specificaly, just a general thought.
But anyways, too bad on Booker. Beilein will figure it out.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Seriously||
He could not have made that less exciting if he tried.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Tough Call||
Miggy has done some great things on a bigger stage, but I like Megatron a hell of a lot more. I put Calvin Johnson way ahead just because I don't personally enjoy watching baseball all that much.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Other possibility?||
Call me an optimist, but maybe this means Blackmon picked Kentucky which caused booker to decide on Michigan. That's the only positive spin I could see.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Amen||
I'm probably enjoying it too much. That kind of stuff just interests me. He was really pumped that he said swagger during the first half.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Am I the only one?||
Am I the only one enjoying this creepy halftime coverage? It's all there: Camera panning over unsuspecting fans, event staff guy with rough voice meeting up with long lost aquaintances. The student crew might not be amazing, but at lease the guys seem genuinely pumped to be working the game.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Small victories?||
We could still hold them under 120?
Keep your heads up, we don't play them again. Ever.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Oh Noes||
Anybody know if they have a sideline producer?
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I heard him say GRIII the||
I heard him say GRIII the first time. I only heard him the one time, however.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Yup||
I did put that together myself.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||GRIII||
GRIII for Glenn Robinson the Third, if you didn't put that together yourself.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Whaaaaat||
Derrick Walton or Drey Wurke?

You need to... like... get a hobby man.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||9th Green at Nine?||
Maybe this is just the ultimate setup to the old 9th green at nine trick. Almost niiine o'clock....
|8 weeks 2 days ago||No||
I've never had to do that. I just have a magical ability to move on from things like this. Tough to watch, and it's furiating, but I'm not all butt hurt about it today. I'm as big of a fan as anybody I know, but if the team doesn't do well it won't ruin my day/week/life.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Goofy||
He's a goofy lookin dude, but so am I. I like him already. I've been waiting my entire life to see Michigan build a basketball program like I knew they could. I couldn't be more excited to watch this season of college hoops. There is nothing better than college sports.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Compelling Start||
What a compelling start to that "rivalry." 41+ points to 0-9 points for four consecutive OSU victories. Jesus.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Truck vs Hit||
The "Truck Stick" is used on offense in Madden and the "Hit Stick" is used on defense. Pretty similar, but not quite the same.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Wow||
All the more reason to get this years game. Hopefully this makes them put even more effort into Madden every year.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Popularity||
First off, I think the team could use some motivation going forward this season. The guy also seems to be extremely popular. This might've been the only time they could get him in. Maybe he was in the area. Who cares? Hopefully the talk helped at least one guy on the team refocus or something. Couldn't hurt.

The proper term is, I believe, ouch-y back.
