Cleveland.com is reporting that police believe it was due to an "undisclosed medical condition". Sad.

I think Hoke is searching desparately for a running back that doesnt need those hole-type thingies to run through for positive yards.
So far we've been unsuccessful in that quest.

Well yeah....now that you edited the original post that's pretty clear.

What's the source for this info or is this your projection? It's a bit unclear to me at least.
|3 hours 8 min ago||It is hard for me to fathom||
It is hard for me to fathom that a Freshman who will play in the game at Michigan is right now in a fourth grade class somewhere just like my 10 year old son Tommy is. I wonder if he carried his stuffed toy downstairs as my little boy did today.

When you're 55 it's somewhat hard to get too excited about upcoming games that are so far out in future you're wondering if things like walking, solid foods and breathing will still be part of your daily game plan by the time they are actually played.

Can we see if Kyle wants to come back home and do the write up for more games? I really liked his report (without knowing if even one word of it was accurate)

They are suppose to suck and hopefully will oblige. But probably moreso than other games that looked mismatched on paper - the longer they stay in the game the more confidence they will have for obvious reasons and the tighter our guys will become.
I can only imagine how much pressue our guys are going to be feeling heading into the game. Having about a million people remind you daily 'DON'T FUCK THIS UP WHATEVER YOU DO" cannot be easy.

"Going to a Bar Mitzvah in Mexico City "
There's a sentence you just don't see everyday.

Did anybody else read the thread title and assume it was from WD outlining all the OCD stuff he unodoubtably does before each game to "ensure" our victory? I thought it would look something like this:
1. Set alarm for 5:00am for noon kickoffs, 8:00am for 3:30
2. Hit snooze button seven times to match score of MIchigan's opening drive
3. Eat 3 eggs for breakfast to match Michigan's field goals.
4. Put on lucky Michigan shoes, socks, pants.
5. Select shirt based on what uniform team will be wearing and match accordingly
6. Do 15 Jumping Jack and simulate nutcraker drill

I missed my first home OSU game last year since 1975 because my Father-in-Law passed away the week before the game.
|8 hours 19 min ago||Redshirting||
deferred gratification The ideological principle which encourages individuals and groups to postpone immediate consumption or pleasure in order to work, train, invest, or gain in some other way an enhanced return at a future date.
To me it's basically why some people (like my late Father) would always save 25% of his paycheck no matter what and thus had a signficant net worth in his later years while others (like me ex-wife) believed that if you had $100 that only meant you could borrow $1,000 right now.
Coaching is no different IMO. You can have a little bit now (like a blocked punt against CMU) or a lot later.

Speaking of my home town.....
I don't want Tebow to sign with the Canadians. After watching the shitstorm that passed for NFL Quarterbacking last night from my Browns I gotta believe they've got old Touchdown Timmy all qued up and ready for signing.
And you really think I'm the wierdest thing on the board Turd? I don't know if I should be increadibly fllattered or start crying.

" but this certainly hurts their chances at a national title run and likely makes Michigan State the frontrunner for the conference title."
So fucking glad we got to play back to back road games in EL this year. I was happy when it was announced and now I'm even more thrilled.
I'm sorry but Brandon should've told the B1G they could stuff it cause we are NOT playing back to back road games against State no matter what. I'm pretty God-Damn sure that Delaney would've folded if faced with that news going public before it happened and would've not worried so much about how the schedule would be percieved by the Minnesota and Purdue's of the world.
And yes I know. We're Michigan and just need to go there and beat them. But damn it anyways - it's a hell of a lot easier to beat them in Ann Arbor.

Yes - Purdue blogs have been using it for years.
|1 day 6 hours ago||I've tailgated twice at ND||
I've tailgated twice at ND (2006 & 2010) right on the road across from the stadium that Linebackers sits on. We had an absolute BLAST both times and the locals were friendly and knew their football. I would put Notre Dame at the top of my away game tailgating experiences in all ways.
The fact we won both games I went to made the post-game party prettty sweet too.
|1 day 6 hours ago||I would like to see the links||
I would like to see the links to other blogs updated. Bucknuts & RCMP for example. two of the biggest sites for our rivals are not represented and I think one of the Notre Dame sites doesnt even exist anymore and the other hasnt updated content in almost a year. I love visiting the other sites when things are going wrong for them (like last Friday and then today for example) and it would be nice to have access to the bigger ones directly.
I agree with Magnus that the site has been MUCH better since voting returned.
I agree with Timmmay that losing BB wasnt' much of a loss.
I agree (somewhat) with Space about the whole Borges/Funk issue although I will say if the blocking starts the season horrible and ends the same way you've got to somewhat expect the fallout.

Stop it Dave.
We've already been through this multiple times. Michigan plays OSU on the last day of the regular B1G season and will always play them then. Not in October and definitely NOT at the beginning of the season.
Sheesh - you'd think he'd let this one go already.

FWIW I had an ex-employee send a customer a similar picture (except with a cat instead of a dog) to "encourage them" to buy from us. He was absolutely speechless when we fired him over it as he thought he was just being funny.
My guess is Hail 2 Victors is probably young and posted something stupid not realizing how it would be construed by others.

Hey - why dont you take a moment and share your thoughts on the upcoming season? I know you were calling for 9 or even 10 wins - did Saturday night diminish that at all?
(filling in missing post that got caved thereby making me look even more schizophrenic than usual)
|2 days 5 hours ago||I am VERY optimistic about||
I am VERY optimistic about this year for the following reasons:
1. We have a proven, Senior QB
2. We have a new, proven offensive coordinator in Nuss
3. We no longer have Al Borges
4. Our defense is freaking loaded with talent
5. We have one of the best defensive coordinators in the country and he is about to unleash the dogs of war with an attack-oriented scheme
6. Our young, currently struggling offensive line has roughly two months to gell prior to the MSU game and the meat of our schedule.
7. Our special teams look rock solid
8. Our wide recievers are big, fast and extremely deep in talent
9. JMFR will be fully healed from his ACL tear and ready to wreck havoc on opposing offensives
10. Brady Hoke is willing to take chances on 4th down and plays to win, not to not lose
I guess I'd turn the question around and ask why should anybody be overly pessimistic about our chances? I honestly dont understand that.
|2 days 6 hours ago||No it hasn't changed. I||
No it hasn't changed. I still think we run the table outside of the three rival road games maybe steal one of those (ND perhaps) to get to 9 or 10 wins pre-bowl game. Fortunately the schedule is back-loaded so the line has time to grow and mature between now and when things start to get really tough.
I'm not as pessimistic as some about the results of the scrimmage. Offensives ALWAYS look worse than defenses for the simple reason that the defense usually has a pretty good idea of what's coming based on personel and sets. Think of it like gameplanning against Borges - most defensive coordinators worth a shit knew what he was coming with and aligned accordingly. Plus the o-line was missing two starters so not sure how much you can read into what 60% of our starting o-line was able to do against a defense who knew what play was coming and wasnt worried about misdirection or constraint plays.
|2 days 6 hours ago||I know I seem to talk about||
I know I seem to talk about this kid a lot but can somebody tell me if Dymonte Thomas even saw the field for the scrimmage and if so, how did he play? I didnt see the scrimmage and based on the numerous write-up's and Brian's review he either turned completely invisable (again), didn't play or did absolutely nothing of note. None of which are good for a 5 Star recruit out of Ohio IMO.
We burned his Freshman redshirt in the CMU game. Any chance they're looking to RS him this year to get it back?
