Glad I read until the end. The "Bookslut" reference made it all worth it.
|15 hours 48 min ago||Relegation only works in pro sports||
Hard to do that in college when you have to recruit and guys are here such a short while.

...people will find this thread and be amazed at all the comments not even related to Peppers. The newbies will wonder "WTF is Wolverine Devotee and why does he have his own logo?"
|18 hours 47 min ago||I'd keep it that way||
Make people think you're some type of zombie fan. The RichRod/Hoke debacle made you literaly turn over in your grave.
|18 hours 49 min ago||Best of comment of the day||
I was hoping to make that observation first.
|1 day 21 hours ago||He was promoted to OC after Moeller stepped down||
He was OC in 1995 and 1996. Double reverses left with him apparently because I don't remember any after 1995.
|3 days 9 hours ago||It's been long enough already||
He could stop working tomorrow and probably be set up until the zombie apocalypse.
|3 days 9 hours ago||No Grbac? No Tripp Welborne?||
And Tyrone Wheatley is somehow less than Jamie Morris? Feels like lazy FREEP on the prowl again.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Great! Next make Cardale the starting QB||
I'd much rather face him at QB as opposed to Barrett. I still think he's the third best QB behind Barrett and Miller (when healthy).
|4 days 16 hours ago||Fix the numbers||
and then I think it's okay. It's hard to mess up the color scheme of red, black and white.
|4 days 16 hours ago||That goes for all positions||

|4 days 19 hours ago||Whatever the cost...||
...it's well worth it.
|4 days 21 hours ago||Sterling State Park - Monroe, MI||
Only state park on Lake Erie.
I finally used my recreational passport ($10/year I believe) to go there last weekend. It's off Exit 15 on I-75, in Monroe. There is a Hampton Inn and a few other hotels at that exit and the entrance to the state park is a mile from the interstate.
My kids are 7, 5 and 1.5 years old and they all enjoyed themselves.

Only negative is its location in the Worst State Ever.
|5 days 8 hours ago||The rosters||
Those games between 1985 and 1990 were tight games. It says something if Bruce is such a terrible recruiter yet stayed competitive against us, including the 1987 win in the Big House. By 1991, most of that team were Cooper recruits. By 1993, the whole team, including the 5th year seniors were his guys.
That was a period of beatdowns given to the Buckeyes that deserve to be respected considering how that is usually not an easy game to win.
|5 days 11 hours ago||The Trevor Pryce effect?||
|5 days 11 hours ago||I don't get the disciplinarian thing||
Michigan never seemed to lose because they were undisciplined. The only mental breakdown I can think of is the Hail Mary (Just knock it down!!!). And outside of Damon Jones, I can't think of any off-field issues.

|5 days 11 hours ago||Doesn't matter who OSU's coach was||
Moeller had a winning record against OSU. And Moeller didn't just win a couple of those games, they crushed OSU. Tressel is not that good to erase a 28-point difference in 1991 or 1993.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Moeller would've still had us in the MNC picture||
The only question would've been how much magic could he have worked in 1995 and 1996 with Driesbach and Griese at QB. They were not very good those two years, and you need a solid QB to run his offense.
|5 days 12 hours ago||They only played 12 games under Moeller||
That one less game makes a difference. Lloyd was able to win his 10th game in the 13th game twice. Plus we didn't play a lot of cupcakes during the non-conference season under Moeller. Carr benefitted by having an extra non-conference game, because that was usually a win against the MAC or MAC-level team. Moeller's version of a cupcake was Oklahoma State or Boston College.
Plus, Moeller went 3-1-1 against OSU. He probably goes 4-1 if Grbac doesn't get hurt in 1992. That still earns you some mercy from the fans.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Knicks and T'Wolves||
Or they think
|5 days 19 hours ago||Freep is dirtier than dirt||
They're also shittier than shit. I don't know what's worse than the lovechild or dirt and shit, but whatever it is, the FREEP invented it.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Wow, so close to 7-5||
That probably would've saved Hoke's job. Maybe we should not be so bummed out about those losses now.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Kinda surprising||
This is a news website, not a blog, and even there it's a "Sparty" fan, not Michigan State, MSU or Spartan. Sparty. I guess it's not a fight to them unless a football player is involved.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Is this part of the "entitled" culture under Hoke?||
I was always nervous under a new coach because I knew my job was in jeopardy. It made me work harder. I don't understand what the issue is if Harbaugh didn't revoke his scholarship.
|5 days 21 hours ago||They were not elite last year||
The D got exposed against Oregon, OSU and Baylor. The template to neutralize that defense is out there. They don't do well in space or with spread teams.
They are still very good against MANBALL teams. That's why I hope we run some type of power spread offense...yes similar to what OSU ran last year. I think it maximizes their weaknesses, minimizes their strengths.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Every game for them is non-conference||
so it's a bit unfair. I'm sure our games with MSU and OSU would rank higher than ND-ASU or ND-Pitt.
|6 days 11 hours ago||I'd be surprised if Sparty loses to Oregon||
Oregon lost Mariota and it's a road game. Plus they struggle with physical teams. Still pulling for the Ducks, but I don't like their chances.
