|1 week 15 hours ago||I suppose||
I suppose you are correct, there were more than a handful of games where they did score fast. That wasn't really my point. My point was there are greater merits to a skilled defense and mediocre offense vs a mediocre defense and a high powered offense.
Basically our current Harbaugh team vs RRod's as I described.

Offense is more exciting to watch, ala the Denard era w/ RRod. It was always exciting to see the team score in a minute or so but you saw what that did to our defense. In that case, the combination of an inept GERG with a 3-3-5 and always having the defense on the field meant they were lackluster and so you watched a prevent-esque bend but don't break defense that didn't let any of our opponents score fast but also never really stopped our opposition from scoring. You know, the type of games that created scoring shoot outs with Indiana for example.
Which brings me to my point that I think you are overlooking the merits of a great defense. The ability to create turnovers ala interceptions and fumbles on your opponent's side of the field and giving your offense a chance to put points on the board in a vastly shorter field to drive to score. Makes for great scoring odds. If you have only a good offense, and a crap defense, you don't get that and you have to hope that the offense can drive the entire length of the field and odds are.. they can't do that all game.

Is Michigan's best play of the day, the power sweep? I wasn't sure... they've only mentioned it about 5 times so far today.. I'm still unsure though. Thoughts?

UHF, to be fair, did have Stanley Spadowski. That would probably make for ,at least, an entertaining commentary..
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Don't||
As someone who lives in South Bend, they are one of the most annoying and delusional fanbases in existence. Their fans are insufferable.

EDIT: Double Post probs
|21 weeks 4 days ago||I have Destiny PS4||
I have Destiny for PS4 and like you, have just started playing and also from an "elderly demographic." Well I guess if you call early 30's elderly. Anyhoo you are welcome to add me.

So are you saying this universe is possibly the alternate universe and aren't part of the real universe? ERMAHGERD
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Not only is it Harbaugh day..||
It's also my birthday. And i thought Christmas really masked people remembering my birthday... I think Harbaugh day takes that title now.

Show some compassion and don't be a tool.
|52 weeks 16 hours ago||The difference is||
One is a 6-6 season tool and the other is a michigan alum and proven track record tool. Ill take the latter..
|1 year 13 hours ago||I disagree||
I disagree. I don't think intensity can be generalized across the whole entire defense. To some degree sure but not entirely. I saw a few plays by Taco Charlton last night and a few hits by Jarrod Wilson that would make me think otherwise. I think largely the team just looks out of position at all times. Our secondary made Gary Nova look like Drew Brees reincarnated.
|1 year 2 days ago||Not sure how else to word it.||
Not sure how else to word it. It was from yesterday's game of Arizona Vs. Oregon. You know the ticker that runs at the bottom showing scores and the like? it said NCAAF: Dave Brandon has been quoted in saying that he prefers to wait till after the season to evaluate coaching staff. So it was either quoted last night or early this morning on ESPNU. It did not give a source at the bottom on the ticker. My source is that I saw it on ESPNU. Don't know what else to tell ya.

Adapt or die. Guess which one we picked...
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Changing M football into a brand||
It's just another way to try and change Michigan football into a unique brand. The block M is becoming our brand logo. It's been Dave Brandon's goal from day 1. Its not a bad thing. I think it looks good and when we start winning our brand will become stronger.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I don't think Calipari||
I don't think Calipari needs to begativly recruit. Alot of his kids are nba stars. John Wall, Demarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, Nerlens Noel, Anthony Davis... All lottery picks in the NBA. There's that and i remember him saying in an interview around March Madness where he doesnt care if his kids do the 1 and done thing. So i imagine no pressure to stay and be a lottery pick in the NBA makes the decision hard to pass up.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Need both||
Need both or Hoke is in trouble. Fans and alums are getting restless.. The RROD years definitely provoked how dire this is.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Oy vey||
So that's why he was waiting so long.. Waiting for that result to make his decision for him. Well that's unfortunate for all parties..

Out of town in indianapolis working but most of my co-workers live in northwest indiana and were supposed to travel home today. Ironically enough we are all having trouble extending hotel stay because of the big ten tourney

End of story.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Chase winovich||
He was lifelong buckeye fan and ended up choosing Michigan. Kids are allowed to change their mind. It doesn't happen often for a lifelong fan but it does happen. Circumstances haven't exactly been in our favor after this past season.

desparate you say? I think that's all I needed to know about you!

|1 year 36 weeks ago||I'm sorta on the fence about it||
I'm sorta on the fence about it. I actually like Richard Sherman. Yeah he tends to run his mouth a bit. He is one of the few who runs it and backs it up on the field with play. You can't argue with success and results are in the numbers. #1 pass defense in the NFL. That accolade is not an individual effort though.
So, do i think his onfield play warranted that reaction or justified it in the interview? Maybe. What needs to be understood is actions or swear words aside, you are a representative of the entire NFL organization. This game is broadcasted on a local channel and there are millions of kids watching. Do you want your kid to idolize Russell Wilson or Richard Sherman?
That being said, emotions were running high and he made a game winning play. I don't think telling Crabtree he is a sorry receiver was justified but given the situation, i think i will give him a pass unless this type of action starts becoming the norm for him.

Suppose the tryhards have to do something with their free time. Our coach is bigger than average size and likes food? Tell me how you came up with that brilliant conclusion! I'd be redirecting my thoughts I guess as well if i knew my college bball team was tanking. Ironically, Hoke has never had any health issues and Meyer has had plenty. I never understood why these blockheads find such great humor in that. I expected better from 11W...
Also.. I can't wait till Meyer does this to ohio st. as he did with Florida
compliments of LSUfreek of course.

Did this person not watch any of the bowl games.. I.E. Nebraska/Iowa come to my mind where they beat Georgia and hung in there till the very end with LSU.

That's the beautiful thing about this board. If i resist the urge to creep because of some rationality telling me to stop because it's absurd, even though deep down I really want to, there's always another member that has gone ahead and did your dirty work. Bravo.
