“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”

Sam is a professional in every sense of the word. He is measured, reasonable, and avoids HOTTAKES. His opinion may be in the minority on this blog, but I think that reflects more on the people here as opposed to Sam just wanting to "toe the company line."
|51 min 46 sec ago||He ends it||
by saying that he supports Hoke.
"My man Brady I stand by you...and the real OGs, the real Michigan people, we riding with you."
Sam Webb then says "well stated."
|3 hours 9 min ago||Assuming||
both Hoke and DB are fired, how are their buyouts going to affect us dumping piles of cash in Harbaugh's driveway?
|3 hours 11 min ago||He has||
no head coaching experience, and apart from one year at Florida in 2010, hasn't been in the college ranks for over a decade.
Not saying I hate the choice, but there are giant questions with this one.
|3 hours 16 min ago||And||
we've come full circle.
We're in the bizarro RR years, where defense is good and the offense is comically bad; now its the fans hate the coach and the ex-players support him. Seems to me the Athletic Department isnt the only thing broken these days...
|1 day 5 hours ago||I agree with this||
RR is not responsible for the actions of this team some 4 years after his firing and I'm not sure why he is even being brought into this.
But for the record, I think it is being brought up because Brian has referenced the RR/Denard concssion incident a few times to suggest that he (RR) cared for his players more so than Hoke.
|1 day 18 hours ago||But he was checked out||
there are pictures of him talking to the trainer...
Now it's entirely possible a trainer of three decades couldn't tell that a kid was visibly knocked out and ignored a potential head injury but... That doesn't seem likely.
And let's not pretend that there has never been a violent hit where the person is fine afterwards. Conversely, there are plenty of innocuous hits that knock people out. My point is we can sit here all we want and watch the hit on a replay gif and make arm chair determinations that Shane was knocked out cold... Or we could think that a medical professional with decades of experience could talk to Shane and Adequately perform their job.

tp the OP's question:
Mark Dantonio literally played someone who died on the field and justified it by saying he had the "wind knocked out of him." And, on top of that, recruiting improved at State.
Where was the indignation over that? Oh right, there wasn't because MD was winning games.

We gotta stop living in the past.....except when we need to bring up RR in every debate about our current staff.
While we're on the topic of past discussions on head injuries, anyone going to bring up Hoke leaving out Lewan the entire second half at PSU last year? If RR taking Denard out of a game is a fair discussion point (apart from mentioning it above, Brian tweeted about this after the Minny game), then we should also acknowledge Hoke's history on the matter as well. (If I remember correctly, Desmond Morgan was also left out of the Iowa game because of a potential head injury).
Anyways, I am going to go out on a limb and say this whole concussion thing wouldn't be an issue if Hoke is coming off a BCS bowl season and is sitting in the top #10 at 5-0. But he's not, so now everything becomes a fireable offense.
At this point, Hoke's coaching record is not defendable, but I am also not sitting here thinking hes a danger to his team, especially given his past record on players with head injuries.
|3 days 19 hours ago||In retrospect||
how lucky are we NOT to be playing MSU or OSU at home? Those games could have been 75% MSU/OSU fans....
|1 week 1 day ago||May also||
be worth mentioning that Miss St was one Hail Mary away from blowing an 18 point lead with just over 2 minutes to play. Granted - they won the game - but there was enough derp in a signature win to give pause.
|1 week 1 day ago||That's me!||
I am such an internet tough guy.
And I guess I missed the memo that stipulated the amount of "standing one has to comment" on a program is directly related to the amount of money donated. We should note that on the blog so I can make sure in the future to avoid any comments made by the proletariat.
|1 week 1 day ago||Re Dan Mullen||
He was also something like 2-21 against teams ranked in the top 25 before saturday night. And Miss St. blogs were openly debating whether or not he should be fired after last year. The fact that his name is cropping up as a possible replacement seems to be overexcitement to the fact that his team just beat LSU
|1 week 1 day ago||Oh Good||
So now we're crediting RR with a 12-1 season that year.
I said this in another thread about people like you: but if you hate Michigan so much, why the fuck do you even watch? And not just watch, but you get so bothered that you feel the need to post 12,257 (give or take) times on a Michigan blog? If you love RR, just root for Arizona.
|1 week 1 day ago||Give it a rest||
RR wasn't here for what would have been his fourth year. That 11-2 record doesn't count for him; it does not compare at all to Harbaugh's fourth year.
|1 week 1 day ago||I will||
Never understand why people who profess to be michigan fans openly hate the team so much.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yawn||
Color me skeptical . The dude clearly is fishing for page hits. In the same article he says :
If either one of these gentlemen is hired, the road to a Harbaugh gets much more probable. Both Harbaugh brothers and Miles would take the Michigan job under the stewardship of Bates or Manuel, none of them would come to Michigan under Brandon, so change is imminent.
Both harbaughs and miles!! We don't just get one of them, we get all three! Also in the sme article he says john gruden is looking for homes in Ann Arbor, because he loves bates and Manuel too.

This just in: Football coach loses a handful of games over the course of a decade career; fans bitch about it a decade later.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Nuss||
was more speculative based on his prior stops. The ND game wasn't good, but one game does not change an entire career arc. And who has a better offensive track record in the B1G right now? Maybe OSU? Maybe Neb? And if you tell me Jim Bollman at MSU, well, I can point you to some OSU blogs that may disagree...
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I agree with this||
I would also say in order to be a succesful CEO type coach you need to surround yourself with good coordinators. Switching Borges (a mixed record at best) with Nuss (up-and-coming young guy whose been sucessful everywhere he's coached) really should right the ship on the one side of the ball in which we weren't "making plays."
And in all honesty, I know Narduzzi is the best coordinator in the B1G, but how many teams have a better pair of coordinators than we do? Mattison and Nuss may be in the top three in the B1G at their respective positions - thats a good foundation to build from, while Brady handles the CEO duties.

From mvictors will say after every loss:
@MVictors: Reminder to WTKA callers, pls rattle off your fandom credentials b4 your rant (e.g., yrs season tix holder, watching team since 19XX, etc.)
So now we know where you, unicycle firefly, fit into the grand scheme of things. Thanks for your opinion and the money you spend on the university will surely make your opinion heard in the athletic department. Also we minions on the mgoblog will be sure to follow your lead.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||PSU||
should be really feeling the scholarship crunch this year. Their recievers won't be at the same level as NDs.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Then freak out at the end of the season?||
Or at least wait until half way through if it becomes apparent that the wheels have fallen off. I just dont understand the notion of getting this stressed this soon over results that are still unknown. Especially, as I mentioned, when we have a perfect indicator from just last year that 2 games does not make a season.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||we're||
older and have a new offensive coordinator, which was like 95% of the problem last year.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||last year||
after the Notre Dame game we looked like national championship contenders, DG was on track to be in NYC for the heisman award ceremony, and brian and ace were literally laughing at MSU in the podcast.
with that being said, can we just wait to see what happens until, oh i dont know, more than two games into the season??
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Sparty will beat the shit out of them||
Interesting. They don't play notre dame this year...I know that sparty is a bunch of thugs but I don't think they are going to get in a massive fight with the notre dame team.

please dont leave for four years!
i know i am not alone in that i would love to keep up with the USMNT players you've mentioned, especially during some of the bigger tournaments that are on the docket before russia 2018. i've followed a few USMNT blogs but none compare to what you're put out during this world cup run.
|13 weeks 2 hours ago||how would you have liked||
to have brought on LD instead of wondo at the end of yesterdays game? someone who had been there before, a finisher, composed, etc. not saying he would have made the difference (i think the injury to altidore hurt more than LD not being on the team) but we really missed his spark.
to brians main point, i am conflicted this morning. very proud of the team and ill continue to support them but i just cant come away thinking - what others have mentioned - that we're getting closer to the end goal. we're a good team - top 10 maybe - but there is a huge gap between elite and good, and we're not quite closing it. but thats a conversation for another day...
|13 weeks 17 hours ago||National team soccer||
Similar to college sports in a way--- a player may be im his prime but you may never see him suit up for your team again. Timmy just had his best game in a us jersey, but more likely than not we won't see him don the colors again...(at least certainly not in another World Cup)
