Well that just made my early morning much more tolerable. I love that he was supposed to visit State and committed to us instead.

my dvr ran out with 3 seconds to go in OT..I missed he last shot!! ahhh
|31 weeks 2 days ago||ACL tears||
Yes, what is going on? There has to be something that is/is-not being done in conditioning or style of work outs that makes us more susceptible to ACL tears. I remember Barwis at some point talking about how he prides himself on not having these types of issues....how can anyone deny this? Wellman needs to evaluate what is going on - I'd like to hear some non-boiler plate discussion about the topic from the staff.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||I think it was Brandon||
I really would like to know the same. I believe it was Brandon for no other reason than $$ and knowing we needed to do something to re-energize the fan base. It's not difficult to see in black and white while looking back on the season, but I still thought Hoke was going to give Borges another year.
I doubt we'll ever know, and with how tight-knit the coaching staff/wives seem to be, I don't believe Hoke will cultivate any animosity towards Nussmeier..he just wants the best for M.

Shout out from 5mile and Sheldon..

I just want to say that the android app is well done and I appreciate the effort. It makes it a lot easier to navigate than the website on the phone. Thanks guys
|1 year 9 weeks ago||5years..||
I had to check, and yeah I'm at 5 years and change. I'm on the site everyday as most are and one of my favorite posts/diary was the Decimated Defense.. 11 Swans was one of the best posts that still gets to me..
|1 year 16 weeks ago||pulled it out||
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Agree||
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..
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Laugh||
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!
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Painful||
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.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||In a flash||
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.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Michigan Stadium||
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....
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Happy days||
Well that makes me smile today...Now we can look forward to basketball season with tremendous anticipation and not so much anxiety! Go Blue

Taco per TVH
|2 years 30 weeks ago||wow||
What a day,,,what a day. Burke was so clutch!
|2 years 33 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!
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Still up||
The fact that it's still up is perfect...just adding some more salt to that wound. Ouch
|2 years 42 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!
|2 years 44 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 :)
|2 years 48 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!
|2 years 50 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..
|3 years 1 day ago||Bacon||
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
|3 years 1 week 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.
|3 years 1 week 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!

I've been trying for a while and no one is answering..probably swamped with calls now! thanks for the tip though.
