So are you saying this universe is possibly the alternate universe and aren't part of the real universe? ERMAHGERD

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.
|21 weeks 3 days 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..
|21 weeks 4 days 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.
|21 weeks 6 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...
|30 weeks 3 days 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.
|37 weeks 2 days 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.
|44 weeks 2 days 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.
|44 weeks 6 days 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 3 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 6 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.

|1 year 6 weeks ago||Suppose the tryhards have to do something with their free time||
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.

|1 year 6 weeks ago||That's the beautiful thing about this board||
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.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Kugler||
Kugler. With him, having taken a redshirt and his dad being an o-line coach for an NFL team, i'm sure he has the mechanics/technique down. I don't see how with our center shuffle last year that we would keep this kid off the field unless a "play the best player regardless of starting experience" approach is not taken.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||The ability to play nearly as successfully away as we do at home||
The ability to play nearly as successfully away as we do at home would show great promise in the maturation of this michigan team. I think having a better overall away record would be a step in the right direction.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I actually like them playing unranked||
I actually like them playing unranked. With the gauntlet coming up as mentioned, i'd like to beat the MSU's and OSU's with as much underdog perspective as possible. All they need to do is focus on each game at a time. With the schedule they are going to go through, if played well, the ranking will come. JUST WIN BABY!
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I like em both||
Morgan has been solidly improving every year that I've seen him play. he used to be so tentative under the hoop with his putbacks. Now you see him going up a little stronger. However, Horford has really been picking up the slack in McGary's absence. Hard to say but I think both deserve a fair share of play time till a clear winner emerges.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Don't really know much about him but||
Don't really know much about him but hopefully he can turn our secondary into something consistent. Tired of seeing the long play given up.

It's sad to think that this stigma that surrounds Detroit isn't going to die in my life time.
Oh the pain.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||And i respect your opinion good sir||
And i respect your opinion good sir. I'm not asking anyone to like Tressel. Nothing excites me about how he threw all these violations under a blanket with the all cost mentality of beating Michigan and it worked. He beat a very successful highly favorited Miami team to win a NC in 2002. Worked too well because the violations Ohio St. got in the aftermath were hardly enough to account for the successes that brought his team. However, I am able to seperate the animosity from the collegiate to the pro level. I will freely eat my words if this turns into a blundered mess but eh, its the Lions, you can't go worse than 0-16 unless they add more games to the NFL schedule fortunately.
