Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Contingent on RR finding a competent DC and actually allowing him to do his job, I agree
|33 weeks 3 days ago||I think the issue at heart||
I think the issue at heart here is that the neurologist doesnt' seem to have ever even gotten the chance to do anything about it.
Go watch the video--when morris DOES come off the field, he goes and talks with some assitant-coach looking fellow, not the PT or medical staff. The fact that somebody didn't immediately take him to see the medical staff is on the coaches and nobody else.
I suppose you could say that the Dr. should have forced Morris off the field, but what authority does he have to do that? If this were the NFL or NHL, where the medical staff is granted authority to remove a player from a game over the heads of the coaches and the players, you'd have much more solid ground to stand on, I think.

let me keep my dreams.

Was completely brilliant. Couldn't have put it into better words than that.

...opponents scored an average of almost 40 points against michigan? Come on, you can hardly blame the offense for not scoring 6 touchdowns a game against teams with good defenses.
Even a mediocre defense would have made a huge difference that year.

"it is not a particularly hard accomplishment to finish with a good gpa and not be a completely shitty football fan while attending school."
So...this right here is where you're assuming everybody else has the same titanic capabilities as yourself. I'm glad college was so easy for you, but I remember working my ass off and still only got mediocre grades. I guess I just wasn't as smart as you.
(that last line isn't supposed to be a sarcastic stinger or anything. I really mean it.)

I'm a dumbass. I meant it for the other guy. The really pretenious one claiming that anybody who chose academics over football was essentially a nazi.
Sorry, Mexile. Are we still cool?

that "I think exactly at gametime would be a reasonable cutoff" is not a good answer.

I kind of like it better. I mean, I as always wondering why their helmets were so dull--when I think gold I think shiny, not a sort of deep mustard yellow/brown.

If they're playing to the east, it is really only because that is the direction that the band--as a whole--is facing. They've been in those seats for at least five years now.

Adidas is totally going to call this bluff. FFFFFFFUUUUUUUU--
|3 years 50 weeks ago||I think you're confusing "ethos" with "ethics"||
Ethos: The characteristic spirit of a culture, era, or community as seen in its beliefs and aspirations
Ethics: Moral principles that govern a person's or group's behavior.
Apple certainly have characterstic culture--namely a Jobsocracy--and a very distinctive design and use aspirations in their products. You can take pretty much any product they make and say "gloss black, brushed aluminum, stark whites and blacks? Yep, that's apple."
That Steve Jobs is sort of a huge tool who wants every cent you've ever made and will lie, cheat and treat the consumer as an idiot doesn't change that the guy has a pretty distincive vision.

"This program, as much as I love it, IS NOT bigger than an indivial's life."
"No man is more important than the Team. No coach is more important than the Team. The Team, the Team, the Team."
|3 years 51 weeks ago||I suppose you're right.||
I guess I'm holding Mallett to an unfair standard. I mean, I understand why he left. he's the perfected incarnation of the pocket passer archetype and under RR he wouldn't get to show that. And I get that a guy of his talent wants to make it to the NFL so he can earn an impossibly large amount of money. I can understand it, I just can't respect it.
I guess my biggest error here is wishing every person who ever played college football could be held to Denard Robinson's standard. That they go to a school they love because they love it, and not because they see it as the vehicle to advance their careers.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Well, to be fair...||
I hate pretty much every person/object/idea in the known universe with the fiery intensity of a thousand burning suns right now**, so maybe my contempt for Mallett is only slighty higher than the base hatred.
Still, it's hard to have a lot of respect for a guy bailing on his team when a new coach comes into town, especially when holding him against the paragon of virtue, goodness and speed we currently have in Robinson.
**exceptions include cake (food), Cake (band), my bass guitar, and Denard Robinson.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Wait, what?||
"Ryan Mallett did nothing to me"?
Ryan Mallet bugging the hell out of AA was the reason we had a no QB and had to try and win games with Threet/Sheridamnit. You can lay a large part of Michigan's agony in 08 on the compete and utter lack of a quarterback brought about by his departure.
No, my friend, my hatred for Ryan Mallet rages through me with the fiery intesity of a thousand burning suns.

There isn't a single measure of women's disempowerment in sports. Am I supposed to bring out a chart and say "when we cross THIS LINE things are equal"?
