Made my lunch...oh the things people would do for a football scholarship..even to State. And he chose this?! I'm sure MSU did their homework on him and he was clean..

Just reading these comments made me LOL in a staff meeting. I blew it off when I was asked what was so funny.
After Trey hit that shot I ran around the room with my wife looking at me like I was crazy - just before she had mentioned that this wasn't much fun because we were too stressed out. I disagreed - this is sports woman!

I thought watching this would help with my "healing process", but it just made it worse. I still cannot believe that last sequence and especially that Morgan's put-back didn't go down. How can he sleep at night? I would replay that in my head every minute. I feel for him and the team...
At least we get a chance to play again Thursday and I hope they are fired up with an angry attitude.

That game changed quickly..I still can't believe the last inbounds play..layup!

Money...only 4 hits given up. Just think if we can get Fielder and Cabrera going...

I have a good friend who went to Auburn and is from Alabama. He even complains about how Alabama gets away with all of this...every one down there is in it together. Seems to be working as most of the latest schools on probation are BIG (Us, OSU, and the PSU disaster)...if everyone is with you, it makes it easy.

Agree, "Michigan Stadium" would be my vote. I've been thinking it's too plain when you are inside the stadium. Looks unfinished - maybe DB is waiting for the sponsorship go ahead to "dress" is up....

Well that makes me smile today...Now we can look forward to basketball season with tremendous anticipation and not so much anxiety! Go Blue

What a day,,,what a day. Burke was so clutch!
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Congrats||
Enjoy every minute, sleep is over-rated, and glad to see your brainwashing has started early! I'm sure he'll be doing the Touchdown by next season....my 2yr old daughter says "daddy has Go Blue on!" everytime I wear something with a block M. Which is very often. Still working on my 10month old boy...I have high hopes as well Coach Hoke!
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Still up||
The fact that it's still up is perfect...just adding some more salt to that wound. Ouch
|1 year 25 weeks ago||searching too||
I have been trying to find it too - I thought it was bad ass and want to see it again. Screw the bucknuts. Them calling us out is comical. Keep crying, I love it!
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Not easy..||
I transferred in after 2 years of JC.. Got an Mech Engineering degree, so not a useless major - you just need to have a plan on which credits transfer and which don't. I had to take lots of summer classes to get to that point....So you have to know what you need to do. You can't take a bunch of worthless classes and think you'll get credit for them at Michigan.
Best decison of my life :)
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Should have taken advantage||
It would have been nice to take all of these personal foul penalties and won that damn game...It didn't do anything except continue our drives (as long as Taylor's arm is okay and Denard's back is okay)....
I didn't realize the 1st play was on Gholston too - when I saw the replay during the game after Taylor when out, I was pissed at the dirty play...didn't know he'd get caught with 2 more. That helmet twist on Denard was just play bull$hit. Hitting him late, then twisting like that and laying there like "what I didn't do anything"...what a punk.
Again, would have been nice to win the game because of this..otherwise it just makes it worse that State gave us so many opportunities and we still couldn't do much.

I have seen him raise his arms and point to a linebacker a lot this year, but never knew he gave the trigger/finger bang... Sweeeet!
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Not hating it||
I like the song - hate the band and all that and would rather of not known who produced it. I'm in section 16 and haven't heard a negative comment about it.
I do not like when they play it just before the team comes out of the tunnel and then quickly get to The Victors. That sucks..

No idea why people are saying Bacon is an idiot...everyone love conspiracies. He seems to be an intelligent guy who is more of a historian and tells it like it is.
I hope this book isn't like ripping a band-aid off in the middle of the healing process. It feels like it could be. I already ordered my copy, but am apprehensive about what I may find...sometimes things are better left unknown as it's "in the past"..
Anyway, I hope to gain some insight into:

Sparty is looking like they are in a big game = going to get blown out! Lovin' it so far...early, but lovin' it
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Mattison||
He's said many times that you can't let the QB just sit back there because he'll pick you apart. So at least it appears that he's making the QB do more that just pick which reciever he wants to throw it to because they WILL always be open and I'll have the time.
The last few years we didn't have the secondary to really shut down recievers and then didn't generate enough pressure, so the results were really bad. I'll take the fact that at least we are bringing the pressure and making the QB 1) potentially check into a play 2) have to get rid of it quickly Forces them to think and make the correct decision. Now they need to make it more difficult obviously. Hoke/Mattison also said that sometimes they want the QB to check into somthing else - so they know the game and I think these are a lot easier to teach than just sitting back and waiting to get burned....this is more mental = teaching, last few years was just a bad scheme/talent/experience = not easy to teach.
At least I have the feeling that that coaching staff really does know what they want to do and just needs to get the players on the same page/learn...I didn't have that feeling last year on D.
You can learn to make better decisions, you can't learn to be more physically gifted week to week.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Yeah||
I thought figher jets or a stealth would have been cool - the plane was very sloooooow.
And I kept waiting for the lights to go out (or at least a bank or 2) during halftime for the same reasons.
Overall, a great event - next time I hope the pre-game weather is better so we can tailgate on the golf course. Get on it Brandon!
|1 year 36 weeks ago||trying..||
I've been trying for a while and no one is answering..probably swamped with calls now! thanks for the tip though.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Tickets?||
It says those with tickets? Can you pre-purchase a single game "ticket" to park?? This is going to be a mess now...
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Stats man...stats||
I really missed the stats...I hope they bring them back...it was a pretty universal complaint around my section, so I have faith they'll figure it out.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||A few moments||
I've had a few moments like that as I'm sure we all have. The 1st thing the guy next to me said to his buddy last year when they sat down was "Well they wanted plain, they got plain"...I looked at my wife and told her I may have to move 'cause I'm going to explode - granted it was the 1st game and I was like a little kid jumping up and down waiting for the dedication..
Anyway, I hope the last few years will make people appreciate things a bit more. There will always be fans that are negative, but we have this board - I know the MGoCommunity has my back
Go blue and 5 more days...5 more days...
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Ball patting||
Doesn't sound like they showed much of anything, but I am concerned about Denard and the pro-style until I see it during a game. My fear is that he will not find open recievers in the short amount of time during his progression and it will lead to a lot of scrambling. Hopefully, not bad throws/INTs though.
I bet they take it really easy here on out so no one else gets injured. Things are starting to add up with all the nicks during the spring.
At least Gibbons hit one!
|1 year 38 weeks ago||wow||
I almost feel bad for people who are this pathetic... Do people really believe this stuff? You can't even argue with people like that...Yeah Coach Jackson didn't recruit anyone, it's all RichRod..ahhhh can we just move on?
I found it entertaining though, so no need to neg him I guess...I clicked on it
|1 year 38 weeks ago||DB||
Mixed emotions on this as there really isn't an upside, but it happend and I look at it as starting over..erasing what happend the last few years and hitting the reset button.
We'll have to watch the blocked FG 20x, but oh well it's nothing compared to that day and what we have gone through the last 4 years. I will want to go to the game - something I can't say if it were any other FBS team. So I'm not worried about what everyone else thinks, I just hope we kick their @sses.
As for DB...yeah I'm not loving a lot of his decisions. Like raising ticket prices and responding "someone has to pay for this?" Really? I didn't want new scoreboards, suits, etc...I like my seat and the way it was... Anyway, 8 more days...8 more days...
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Koger||
Dang Koger, you were his roomie, what up? He said he wasn't home sick, playing time wasn't going to be an issue...
People need to stop insinuating that Hoke is running off guys. I can't believe we keep going to this - I had enough with that before and Hoke basically said Posada was home-sick. Stokes makes sense as he can sit out a year because he never redshirted and wasn't starting..
There are always individual reasons and none of us know them. So 9 days....9 days until we can talk about what really matters...I can't wait. Seems like 50/50 chance of bad news lately on this site.
