"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

"In fact, there is ZERO CHANCE that the coach told the kids to go out there and rip the face of Denard, or punch Lewan.. If you think he did, you are mistaken.....it would cost him his job. Both teams come to play, and this is what happens.....Denard is our bread and butter, and players try to hurt each other...EVERY SINGLE PLAY. D'Antonio is a good coach, that hates Michigan, and will overlook some of the incidents, just as he has proven to do by reinstating players with criminal arrest records."
By overlooking these incidents, and reinstating criminals onto the team, Dantonio implicitly tells the kids to go out there and rip faces off. Hell, the defensive coordinator admitted as much.
Secondly, players don't try to hurt each other every single play. There's never an intent to harm. That's not part of the game. That's why those actions are penalties.

I thought the same exact thing when I saw it.

Good thing Auburn didn't run into a good defense last year to shut down their gimmick offense.
Better shut it down, kid. Your ignorance is showing.
|3 years 5 days ago||They're Purdue||
Historically, their program isn't much different than Purdue's. The only reason we care is because of the proximity. Do you know how much Illinois fans hate Michigan? I met a graduate once and was shocked to find out the number one game they wanted to win every year was Michigan.
I'm annoyed that we lost again to MSU, but only because it means we're not to where we need to be yet. I want to get back to the Michigan teams where MSU was just another game and we only had to worry about losing one or two games a year (of course, we always made 4 or 5 more interesting than they should have been). But Hoke's recruiting. We'll dry up their talent pipelines and we'll be back there. In the meantime, Sparty, enjoy it while it lasts.

Can someone explain the relevance of either Nealon or Nietzsche on this post? What's the joke?

18/40, 168 yards, 1 TD, and 4 picks.

By that last Big Ten title in 1986.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Every game, eh?||
Dennis Dixon, Brad Banks, and FREAKING Joe Germaine beg to differ. Oh, and Armanti Edwards is snickering.
Carr would have had 7-5 seasons with this talent and you know it. My point was RR was on an upward trajectory and would have figured this out and put Michigan on another plane of competition. Now we're back to where we were, only this time there's no tying for the Big 10 title and backing into a BCS bid.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Exactly||
That tweet might have read, "Congratulations. You got your Wayne Fontes, for what it's worth." Wayne was entertaining, a good guy, made the playoffs, and you could bet he'd get this reception if he was hired in 2009 after what the Lions have been thorough.
I'm going to stop comparing Michigan to the Lions now.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||So we're going to win games because we're "tough"?||
What does that even mean? Mike Martin isn't tough? Brandon Graham wasn't tough? Tate Forcier playing hurt isn't tough? Guys in prison are tough. Would a team of them win the B1G?
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Hokers gonna Hoke||
I, for one, am looking forward to perennial 8-4 seasons sprinkled by losses to teams Michigan should beat and wins over OSU from time to time, then getting crushed in a bowl game.
Talk about a return to Bo/Carr/Moeller. It was totally worth nuking this recruiting class to get this.

He should change his name to Kurtz.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||OK||
I can see how that might have been what you meant, but considering I wasn't the only one confused by your post, and reading your other posts in other threads, I can confidently conclude that while you're a poor writer and a bag of douche, you're not an idiot.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Really?||
I assume you're referring to this. If so, in the same breath Brian discounts the information and implies that the rumor is probably false. He's "reporting" nothing other than he has an email and that he doubts its content is true. It's way short of: "ZOMG! Forcier's outtahere! I'm tracking flights to Billings!"

I, for one, have never seen Section 1 and Superman in the same room at the same time.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I'm not going to comment on this thread...||
Because I hate threads like this, and commenting on it just makes it float towards the top and get more exposure.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||HAHA YARLY!||
I hate facts too! RABBLE RABBLE FIRE RR!
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Geez||
What a lunatic.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||More attrition?!?!||
Can't RR keep kids from quitting? He is clearly a monster who doesn't instill family values in this team and -- what? Nebraska? Oh.

|3 years 50 weeks ago||What he said||
It does seem like this is too obvious and egregious an error (if indeed, it is one, and not just a different flavor of the defense) for it to not be done for some possibly legitimate purpose.
What Brian has pointed out is that we aren't running the defense the same way as WVU did, but if I was asked to run this defense, I would start studying it as much as I could, so either GERG didn't do that and is just winging it, or there's a legitimate reason he's trying this strategy and it's just not working.
If it's the former (didn't study), he should be fired. If it's the latter, it bears more investigation. Maybe they tried having the MLB deeper and there were other, more problematic flaws exposed due to lack of talent and/or experience.
|3 years 50 weeks ago||You're right||
I guess the 2nd national ranking is just a fluke.
If I pick out some data points and make a flippant argument too, I could make a case that our D is better than the '85 Bears.
|3 years 50 weeks ago||He has been recruiting||
And they'd be here, if they'd qualify. He started with the disadvantage of Carr leaving him with no recruits to start with, then having a couple losing seasons to albatross his recruiting efforts. If you read this blog, you'll see these recruits are coming. He needs more time. In my mind, this is really his second year. You have to forgive him 2008.
