|4 days 18 hours ago||Yup||
Yup, and it is spot on. Borges offense felt a lot like GERG defense (which I know was not all GERG's fault). That thing we tried one time didn't work, let's change everything.
Or "What? We have a bye week? Well let's install something COMPLETELY different in 10 practices instead of getting better at what we already know."
Or "Forcast calls for 40MPH winds this weekend, and I have the best running QB in the history of ever... I better drop him back 30+ times."
Or "2 minute drill? So, lets see, that means we only have enough time to run 3 plays."

Obligatory response to any request for a prediction:
|1 week 15 hours ago||Ugh||
ESPN's insistence upon creating their own statistics (BPI, QBR) drives me nuts.
This seems to be their approach to it:
|1 week 6 days ago||He's Mad Now||
I think my favortie part of the "He's Mad Now" gif is that after the absurd behind the back dribble and fade away 3, Beilein shows a little exictement with a clap and slapping Jeff Meyer on the knee.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This||
This was posted several times back when it happened.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Excuses||
Izzo will never go to the pros. His "Feel sowwy fo me, my best pwayer has a boo boo." pouty bullshit wont fly in the NBA, and he knows it.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks Lloyd|
|4 weeks 3 days ago||But||
But apparently is not Vince Lombardi.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Imagine||
Imagine if the Pistons had drafted either Burke or THJ last year... Likely would have been lottery again in 2014, and if they could have complemented with either Marcus Smart or Gary Harris....
A backcourt of Burke and Harris would be absurd.

We're undefeated in East Lansing when somebody has an Aneurysm.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Aneurysm of Leadership||
How about Coach channeling Novak there and having an anneurysm of leadership? Amazing.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Valenti & Foster||
Valenti and Foster love having little tickle fights with each other over the state of Michigan football right now. They haven't gotten to do so their entire lives. Let them be and just turn the dial.
Since Foster was on the U of M beat for a long time he acts like he has connections to the program, and uses that to spew bullshit. I bet not a single person inside Schembechler even has Terry's phone number stored in their address book.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Headphones||
I had to switch to headphones, was the only way I could hear without sitting with my ear against the speaker.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe||
Maybe because the basketball team was actually capable of running an offense that scored points and didn't need something similar to a Dileo-sliding in the rain cluster-bleep of a field goal attempt just to tie the game... at 9... after regulation...
Oh and the whole Michigan lost 2 first round NBA draft picks this year, 3 if you count McGary.
Oh and Coach B gets a little bit of leniency seeing that he has a long-ass career of being a pretty damn good coach.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Were you||
Were you under a rock during the whole Cam Newton is suspended because his dad took cash, no just kidding Cam can play because he didn't know his dad took cash... thing?
How do you go from being horrible, to winning a national title, to being horrible, to almost winning another national title in the course of 4 years?
It aint by doing things the right way. It's by paying players and guiding them through favorable Junior Colleges that can get the eligible quick.
Open up thine eyes, good sir.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Fantastic||
Comments like these are why I'm glad the old voting system is back. You made me smile, I click the green arrow. All is right with the world for the next 5 minutes.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Did we||
Did we hire a completely new offensive staff today and I didn't hear about it?
Oh, well, then, no. No we can't turn it around like Auburn did.
They have JUCO's to fill in the pieces. We do not.
They have, um, boosters who do extra special booster type things. We do not.
They have an innovative coach who looks at a brick wall and thinks "There's gotta be a loose brick in there somewhere I can exploit." We have a coach who looks at a brick wall and thinks "I bet if we run right at it a bunch, it will eventually fall over. What? We're down by 20 already? Well I guess we better stop running at this brick wall. What? We're up by 10 now? Time to go back to working on running over that brick wall."
Give me a system that focuses on doing 4 things obnoxiously well over a system that focuses on doing 20 things "meh."
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Ironically||
Sad, I hope they don't find that it was caused by something silly like some exec leaving on a space heater or something.
Ironically, the Man vs Food episode that was filmed there was on TV yesterday...
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Serious?||
Ron English? You Serious, Clark?
|10 weeks 15 hours ago||I took it as||
I took it as: They finally did the right thing in abandoning the run, but it's further proof of how bad we are on offense that we couldn't run on a team that recently got gashed on the ground.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Cara||
I believe he is referencing the CARA forms that were part of the Rich Rod sanctions and how their mishandling actually pre-dated Rich.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Mississippi||
How about Mississippi being the mother of STD hotspots?
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe||
Maybe. He's no longer CEO of Dominos but he is chairman of the board of directors. I'm sure still holds a fair amount of stock. Has one of the highest salaries listed in the public U of M salary record. There is also a thing around U of M called "defered compensation" which does not show up on the public reports. Basically a way to hide bonuses.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Holy Running Game||
I love how Danielson is slurping up the read option attack now. What a derpfaced slappy.
Watching Auburn's rushing attack makes me sad that we're going to Manball. :(
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Thank you||
Thank you! "Could care less" is one of my biggest pet peeves.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||The old voting system||
The old voting system can't get here soon enough.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah||
Yeah I understand the counterpoint of staying the course. There have been flashes of pretty fun looking things.
It just feels like being in a relationship with somebody who makes you feel like crap 6 days out of the week, but then goes out of their way to make you feel like the most appreciated/loved person ever on day 7.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I must see||
I must see Al working somewhere else.
I can't handle the variance. I think I actually enjoyed watching one game the whole season, ND. We're 3 plays away from being 4-8 while simultaneously being 4 plays away from being 11-1.
Narduzzi drinking Al's milkshake with the world's largest twisty straw for three straight years drives me nuts.
OSU in the national title game 2 years removed from scandal, and still on probation drives me nuts.
Penn State being better than us with a skeleton team drives me nuts.
Seeing Malzahn completely turn around Auburn twice in 5 years just shows the kind of impact that a smart offensive coach can have. A school like Michigan should have the will and resources to go get a similarly smart coach.
|14 weeks 14 hours ago||All we need||
All we need is 6 offensive tackles on the field at the same time to run on that.
|14 weeks 16 hours ago||Family reasons||
Doesn't he have some family reasons for not really wanting to pick up and move to a higher profile job?
Things are going to get harder at Boise for him. You can only get by recruiting the isle of misfit toys for so long until the big boys start cherry picking your commits to fill their classes.
