Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

|3 hours 51 min ago||Personally||
I would prefer Lester and Samardzija over Price and Soria. Especially considering the D is going to get even worse with Jackson gone and the move for Price pretty much guarantees Max is gone.
|1 day 10 hours ago||If DG can audible out of||
a run up the middle against 9 in the box to a quick pass to a WR with a 10 yard cushion I will be ecstatic. The team left so many yards on the field last because Borges was stubborn as a mule or a complete idiot (your choice).
|1 day 10 hours ago||At least we won't||
use 43 different formations for 88 plays. Something Fester seemed extremely proud of last year. You don't need different personnel packages to run different plays. In fact, part of Borges' predictablity was that his personnel packages seemed tied to specific plays. The more plays you can run out of the same personnel package the better.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Step or two back||
Wasn't that Borges idea of O against PSU last year. We have seven blockers they have 9 in the box. What the hell- lets run up the gut again because they can't possibly stop us for no gain or negative yardage AGAIN can they?
|2 days 12 hours ago||My friends||
use to call me an "inside out oreo" in HS. Just assumed it had to do with being fast, being able to dance, and the music i listened to. Was I suppose to be offended?
|2 days 12 hours ago||They started it||
when neither of them were seeing the field and the two of them had been together the longest. Do you think Funchess and Darboh thought of DG as a QB when he was in the WR group with them during practices their first year on campus?
What makes you assume Gallon had a "me first" attitude because you certainly make it feel that way.
|2 days 15 hours ago||When I emailed the ticket office||
about never getting the reduced donation offer they said they must have screwed up and would gladly get me two tickets in the EZ. With donation it came to $525 per ticket so someone isn't even getting face value for their tickets plus taking the hit on the donation.
|2 days 16 hours ago||So I could have saved $400||
to still overpay for a crappy schedule, What a deal over $500 per seat after the reduced donation to sit in the EZ when I can go to the secondary and save myself a lot of money. It was nice when I had the "non-renewable" season tickets for two years, but DB came in and saw three "marquee" home games and started the ticket pack which wasn't very successful this year. I didn't even get any type of consideration for having four season tickets the year before for purchasing a ticket pack. I also never got the invitation for the so called deal despite having those "non-renewable" season tickets.
I got PSU game tickets from the Alumni Association for a birthday present for my kids and any other games I attend will be purchased at a significantly reduced "dudnamic" price. Funny how DB only uses "dynamic" pricing.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Untested?||
I would think he would have the opportunity to work against Freddy Canteen everyday in practice. So I don't know if I would call him untested.
|3 days 11 hours ago||UCLA disagrees||
as they had two freshman, a soph, rs soph and jr start on the OL last year. Alex Kozan disagrees as he played in the NC game. There are plenty of 2012 recruited OL that are making significant contributions as starters so don't give me that so long to develop BS. USC has a projected starting OL with two freshman, two RS freshman and a true sophomore for the upcomimg year.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Last picture could be deceiving||
You can see the obvious improvement from the first two, but by adding flexing to the last one its questionable if there has been further gains or to what degree. Same thing with Jabrill's pics the other day.
|3 days 14 hours ago||I'm a little confused about||
the sitting a year. So you can be eligible immediately if you transfer from D1 to D3, but if you transfer up you have to sit?
|3 days 14 hours ago||2011 OL players||
Lewan, Barnum, Molk, Hugye, Omameh, Schofield, Mealer, Khoury, Glasgow, Burzynski. Recruits included Posada, Miller, and, Bryant. Jake Fisher was committed before RR was let go. Christian Pace was medicalled and QWash was switched to D. I would prefer this to what LC left RR anyday.
Hoke saw the roster but did he bring in any OL in the class before his first year? Granted he was hamstrung by DB's process.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Was his "so called" heart problem||
caused by banging Florida coeds? Or did he just miraculously get better?
|3 days 17 hours ago||I respect Hoke's unbridled love||
for the University of Michigan, but in my honest opinion he is in over his head as the HC of the program. Everyone brings up the OL, but it is hard to have success when you have 6 or 7 blockers going against 8 to 9 in the box. Borges fault for the play call and not audibling out of it- yes, but Hoke is the HC and should have stepped in and told Al to change the freaking play. Of course that is HARD to do when you don't wear a damn headset so you can know what is going on.. Insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expect a different result and we saw it repeatedly last year.
I hope Hoke is successful this year because I don't want to see another coaching change. People complained about RR meddling with the D, but Hoke seems to be just the opposite and doesn't meddle with anything even when things are going really bad. A true HC would not allow his OC to continue to run the ball up the gut into a stacked box for nothing over and over and over and over..............
The reality is that Michigan football was unwatchable for a good part of last year and I use to wake up after three hours sleep to watch them on TV when I lived in Cali.
|1 week 17 hours ago||I never understood||
why a parent would want to send their child there given the location of the school. Its not exactly surrounded by good neighborhoods. Add in the fact that the Colisuem is located in a bad area and I would much rather attend UCLA if I was going to school in the LA area.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Thank you||
This will go along nicely with my Denard autographed UTL poster.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Where and when is Trey going to be?||
If you don't mind giving out the info, I would like to get my picture of "the shot" signed .

Nick Perry. (still hurts)
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Try doing a 9 am kickoff||
after spinning records in a club and then underground until 5 or 6 in the morning. Nothing like using toothpicks to keep your eyes open so you can watch your beloved Wolverines.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Think about students who are seniors||
They only got to see MSU once in their four years.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Harden's a regular season player||
He has a tendency to disappear come playoff time which is exactly why OKC got rid of him.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Oldest kid in your grade?||
He's six months younger than my oldest who just graduated and 7 months older than my twins who are going to be seniors.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Offense was a problem,||
but without late drives by PSU and Nebraska we win both of those games and you certainly can't blame OSU on the O.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Seriously Darker Blue?||
Wouldn't his second chance be after the first drug charge? A third chance after the second drug charge and this being his fourth chance.
It is cases like this that make me laugh at the term student/athlete. What college would allow a non athlete admission to their school given his criminal history. Maybe DGB is aiming to star in a new version of the Longest Yard.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||New blocking scheme and OC||
automatically improves the OL. You won't see the O trying to run into 8 and 9 man fronts that they can't possible block.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Run fresh legs?||
This seemed to be a major problem last year as it seemed the backups were in a lot when big drives were happening. I'd much rather have my starters better conditioned and be able to play a little more. This changing every 3 or 4 plays is for the birds unless your backups are as good as the starters or the team is just plain out of shape.
I know you need to get the young guys experience, but I would prefer it not be in the fourth quarter of a tight game. (PSU flashback)
|4 weeks 3 days ago||JBB||
said he was up around 350 at the all star game he played in so he has been cutting weight.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Auden Tate||
Plans to have his decision wrapped up by the end of the month, but then will take OVs. Looks like a nice prospect, but if you're visiting other schools you aren't committed.

Nuss is out of town. Which it states right in the article.
