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

Breaking the huddle with time to check the formation and audible out of bad plays or bad offensive line blocking assignments?

Note to Shelly Meyer. Never, EVER get into a pissing match with somebody in the media. They control the narrative and will always have the last word.
I do give the guy credit for decorum though. If he's going to call our Urbz ethics I'm pretty sure there was one more incident involving Mr Meyer and a young lady not named Shelly he could've brought up and didnt.

Where, in anything I posted in this thread, do you see ANY mention of DB? I was pointing out the fallacy in the OP's point that we and OSU are in the same boat because of what they are doing for one game. DB never entered into my thinking or posting here.
Hey - I AGREE with what you wrote other than that sidetrip into something I didnt say.
|2 days 15 hours ago||I had not heard of this||
I had not heard of this before. If true then there a LOT of unsold seats right now cause that means that 13,000 students just got offered the opportunity to buy two additional seats for every game at a reduced rate.
|2 days 16 hours ago||But it's been "nationwide"||
But it's been "nationwide" for some time now. It's only recently that we've been included in the problem as we were largely immune from the attendance issue.. That's why it's a big deal around here - we were always above the fray and now we're knee-deep in the hoopla along with everybody else.
Here's another interesting StubHub tidbit. The OSU/Kent game we're comparing ourselves to has 1,772 tickets for sale right now. We have 3,785 available for Appy State and 4,987 available for Miami. And I dont think the ticket office has put the unsold tickets on StubHub yet so that number could dramatically swell IF the rumors about ticket sales being far worse than the Athletic Department is letting on are true.
|2 days 18 hours ago||The market sure doesnt think||
The market sure doesnt think the two situations are similar. Here's a look at season tickets for sale - as of five minutes ago - on StubHub:
OSU: 244 total tickets for sale. Low price of $1,244 with a high of $4,919
Mich: 714 total tickets for sale: Low price of $414 with a high of $3,200

According to the NFL rules they cant factor in the DWI when metting out punishment for the weed violation. Agreed the second hand smoke thing is funny but to me the fact that the NFL had two different readings from the same sample and the second one was UNDER the acceptable limit is the key.
BTW - can you image getting tested 70 times for drugs? That's better than once a week - unreal.

In other Browns news it appears, if correct, that Josh Gordon may actually have an excellent chance of avoiding the year-long suspension many feared was coming.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Actually I dont give a flying||
Actually I dont give a flying fuck who starts at QB as long as we win. I like Hoyer a lot and think that he does have a certain "Brady-esque" moxie to him absent all the super bowl rings, insanely hot wife, multi-million contract, multiple MVPs and whatnot. Can't help but wonder what last year would've been like if he hadnt gone down cause the team was really starting to click when he did.
That being said he's started exactly THREE GAMES in his entire NFL career. We won at Minnesota with him throwing three picks, at home against Cinci where he didnt look great at all but the defense bailed him out and against the Bills where he got hurt but we were losing when he went down. Hard to build a trophy for him in Canton with that resume. So wouldnt be shocked or bummed if Johnny Football is under center at some point this year.
I now know, however, that Voltron lives near Fairview Park.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Jesus people go back and||
Jesus people go back and re-read the Nuss hiring post or the requiem for a Borges thread that Brian wrote. Hoke had a gaping hole on his staff and he FIXED IT - I am optimistic as Hell about this year regardless of the schedule because:
1. Borges is gone & Nuss replaced him
2. We have an excellent SENIOR QB
3. We have an excellent Defensive Coordinator
4. We are in year 4 of excellent recruiting
I've said and will continue to say this year ends up 10-3 with Michigan a pre-season top 10 pick next year. We are all going to be sad Panda's at the losses but damn it 10-3 is not going to get Hoke fired nor should it. Funk is a legitimate question mark but I believe the absence of Borges is going to make everybody on the staff (Hoke & Funk included) look a hell of lot better.
I wish this stupid "hot seat" crap would go away. It serves no purpose other than to fuel the negative recruiters against our team with ammo.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Best Michigan dunker I ever||
Best Michigan dunker I ever saw was guy named Alan Hardy who played from 76-79. In the 79 game against State Hardy came in from the wing and dunked so freaking hard over Greg Kelser I thought he was going to bring Kelser and the entire backboard down with him.
If that dunk is out there someplace it's absolutely amazing. It was 35 years ago and I can still remember it very clearly.
|4 days 13 hours ago||What a perfect response and||
What a perfect response and EXACTLY what you want your senior QB to say. I love it.
Reminded me of back in 86 when Harbaugh "guarenteed" Michigan would go down to Columbus and win the game. When they asked Bo if he liked hearing his Quarterback say that Bo responded to the effect of "I like it a Hell of lot more than if my Quarterback had guarenteed we'd LOSE this week."

Marrying an Ohio girl is ok. You just have to work to convert them to our religion and get them to give up their Godless devotion to Satanic football. That's what I did.

Fair enough. I just emailed the President of the Cleveland Alumni Association and asked him what he thought of putting a program like that together and even volunteered to help set it up.
We'll see what happens.

The back story on that pic is funny. He came rolling by our tailgate seriously big-pimping with a briefcase and a think stoogie in his hand. He looked exactly like you would envision Greg Mattison to look when he's not on sidelines.
So when I asked him if he minded taking a picture with Jill he set his stuff down and said "sure....no problem at all" and you see the pose. But I got nervous and kept hitting the wrong button on my phone so no picture obviously. Now a crowd is starting to form around the tailgate, I'm continually hitting the wrong buttong and not getting a pic so I start apologizing to Mattison and ask him to stay just a bit longer until I figured out the phone. He never moved, kept smiling, and just said "take as long as you like. I'm just fine here" which cracked up everybody who had gathered.
He's a very cool and funny guy.

You guys ever consider taking your road show to say....Cleveland? I know we're in Ohio and all that but common. You've got a TON of board participants, players, ex-players, Heisman trophy winners and even Space Coyote who call this place home and would definitely attend.
|1 week 1 day ago||Baltimore Ravens > Cleveland||
Baltimore Ravens > Cleveland Browns I guess.
Only makes sense - a player beats the living shit out of women and gets a two-game suspension. Josh Gordon wll miss the entire year for the henious crime of smoking a joint. And I guess the year long suspensions only apply for these crimes against humanity only apply to players. Havent heard anything about Mr Irsay getting asked to remove himself from the Colts now have we?
Seriously - how in the hell does Godell look himself in the mirror?

Here's pic of an awesome idea the Athletic Department had last year. Oh what fun this was and it made everybody so happy!
And here's a an awesome pic of me along with some random ex-coach I met around here
