OK, so by stubbornly keeping Denard at QB -- again, a decision made by Borges -- we lost out on Denard as the "greatest RB in Michigan history." Instead, Denard ended up . . . all the way down at number two on the list of Michigan's all-time rushing leaders. And, as if that wasn't bad enough, we were saddled with a QB who ended up with the fourth most passing yardage for a Michigan QB, compiled over basically two and a half seasons. What a blunder to keep him at QB . . . .
|2 days 5 hours ago||So by your "logic" . . .||
I guess Florida should have benched Tim Tebow.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Keeping Denard at QB||
Yes, it was terrible that we had to suffer through 2011 with Denard at QB, with an 11-2 record, win over Notre Dame, first win over OSU in nearly a decade, and a BCS bowl victory. Thank God we don't have to suffer through that anymore. And, as pleasant a surprise as Devin was after making the transition back from receiver -- a move made by Borges, of course -- we're talking about a 3-2 record, with losses to OSU and in the bowl game, plus an overtime squeaker over Northwestern at home. All in all, I'd say the jury's still out, and anyone who thinks Denard "handicapped" an offensive coordinator is in no position to critique someone else's post.
|1 week 1 day ago||Agree on Candlestick . . .||
although I only saw Giants games there, and not the 49ers. What a dump -- no amenities, bad seating, the whole package. Unfortunately, I moved before they built AT&T, and I haven't been back there to see a game since then.
|1 week 2 days ago||People.||
Just people, generally. Do I need to explain?
But especially people who invent/observe half-holidays. As it is, Festivus season starts before Halloween, and now we're starting in June? Go outside and enjoy the nice weather, for cripes sake, and spare me your ill-timed grievances!
|1 week 6 days ago||There goes . . .||
the proud and rich historical tradition of the Dallas Stars.
|1 week 6 days ago||Yes, but I won't believe it . . .||
until I read ten more confirming stories about it (with pictures!) on MGoBlog.
|1 week 6 days ago||Let's hope he doesn't succeed . . .||
As someone who has tried this concoction . . . um, not so good. Maybe Bud Light is the gold standard for him after all.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||Yeah, and not only that . . .||
but that Clemson player Woody punched totally had it coming. I'm pretty sure Section 1 now holds the new record (besting his own, no doubt) for most points missed in a single thread.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||Read the rest of the parenthetical remark . . .||
including the part you left out: "with his increased recruiting of tight ends of all sizes, I'm optimistic this won't be the case." Ace is predicting the same thing you are -- that based on the recruiting, Borges is going for the "cutting edge" approach that is "becoming very fashionable" in the NFL. I don't see what's so confusing about what Ace wrote.
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||Forgot one . . .||
Inclusion/exclusion of Notre Dame.
[edit: Of course, this topic is raised below (albeit sans irony) -- I should have known better . . .]
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Not only that . . .||
but I hope they don't choose to fatten up DHIII with cream cheese, but stick to one of the approved spreads.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||"Adequate Doug Ditmar substitute"||
Given what we've learned about Mr. Ditmar, you must not have much of an opinion of your brother.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Surely . . .||
somebody on the team is named Eric? Let's just call them all Eric, it would be so much easier.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||You're welcome . . . .||
When they sent out the annual survey to hockey season ticket holders, I took the opportunity to rant about last season's schedule, and especially the front-loading of all home games in Oct/Nov and virtually none in Jan/Feb. Apparently that did the trick (although the home schedule in Jan/Feb is still a bit light for my tastes). Next year I'll turn my powers for good toward the B1G hockey tournament format.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Doesn't moderating an opinion as "trolling" . . .||
also count as an opinion? And am I "penalizing" you by disagreeing with you?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Jeff Backus, for one . . .||
Although I'm struggling to think of any others, so "plenty" might have been an overstatement.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I didn't get it . . .||
So they all were really dead throughout the entire final season?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, that would be nice . . .||
but instead, you can count on DB to break out the condescension toward his paying customers when explaining a bad decision:
The poor guy -- maybe someone can get him the number for the B1G conference office so he can leave a message with Delany's secretary. Then some office assistant can get back to him and let him know how the conference arrived at Michigan's 2014 home schedule. If only the Michigan athletic director had some power or pull over conference football decisions.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Was this your backup plan . . .||
after sticking your fingers in your ears and saying, "LALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU"? You know we're talking 2014, right?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Not to worry . . .||
The Pop Evil halftime show will bring in the fans, as will the mascot arriving in a jet pack. Never underestimate the "WOW" that DB has up his sleeve.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||And . . .||
they get orange slices during the breaks.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, but . . .||
we're talking about Iowa. No schedule will seem "easy" when they're through with it.
|5 weeks 4 hours ago||No offense to your random hunches . . .||
but I prefer to rely on the science of numerology. CW's birthday is 10/7/1976. Add that up and you get 31. Peppers is announcing on 5/26, and 5 + 26 = 31. Coincidence? I think not.
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||Yeah, well, he's no Mike Cox . . .||
but give the kid a chance, Magnus.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||That's what I would have thought . . .||
but the graph sure doesn't reflect that -- he's sub-par both in openers and after byes. Maybe because his "par" starts out higher than most?
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I knew it!||
These graphs conclusively prove that Rich Rodriguez is a better coach than Lloyd Carr or Brady Hoke. Don't let wins and losses deceive you -- this is math, people!
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The WOW factor is gone . . .||
Anyone want my season tickets?
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Thus . . .||
Brian's argument is invalid, and we may all disregard it.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Hope you guys are up for this . . .||
because we're now committed to repeating this schtick throughout the entire 2014 recruiting season. Trust me, this never gets old!
