Wow is this post bad. You should've written:
Drake Harris makes awesome waffles
He is too old to play alleges someone
But he is also quite handsome
|16 hours 45 min ago||We talk about the 95 & 96||
We talk about the 95 & 96 games around here mostly as evidence of a crappy Michigan team (so to speak) being able to beat a good OSU team. And the 69 game is remembered as the launching pad for the Bo era. Would a victory in year three of Hoke's regime be remembered 45 years from now so fondly? Only time (and revisonist history) will tell.
But I'll bet the 89 Baskeball team gets more national attention than those three Michigan football teams. Cause it won it all.
But I understand your point.

8-4 season my friend.

I can think of 27 reasons why it IS on Senor Borges.
|18 hours 10 min ago||Awesome.||

So the question is would I rather win the National Championship in basketball or go 8-4 in football.
You know - this one was kinda hard but I think I'm going with the National Championship here. As zesty as 8-4 sounds, my heart says go with the National Championship.
But 8-4 is tough to turn down I agree. It's WAY better than our crummy 7-5 record that's for sure.
|18 hours 37 min ago||"Total lack of desire?"||
"Total lack of desire?" Those are VERY strong and negative words to be using for any athlete, much less one of our own. Unless you have something more substantive than your opinion from watching on TV I think this post needs to come down.

I might pay for it myself if I can get cool naming rights like they do with stadiums. I can see it now...the mGrowOld voter moderation button.

I absolutely guarentee you that if there was a kick-starter campaign to pay for the programming to return voter moderation it would get completely funded within 24 hours of launch.

I'm pretty sure Reader 71's post is a tongue in cheek jab at all the rendering of garments and gnashing of teeth around here everytime Mr Dave Brandon does such a thing.

I think this was on the board yesterday. And yesterday it was worthy of ALL CAPS and lots and lots of exlamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You must not be as excited over the signing as yesterday's poster was.
|23 hours 24 min ago||OSU and I want them to win||
OSU and I want them to win the MNC. I'm sick to death of hearing about how the SEC is the only league playing real football and I want to restore some of the B1G lost lusture. If it takes OSU to do that, I'm ok with that.
And I hope MSU wins the Rose Bowl and every B1G team wins their respective bowl game. Sorry, when we're 7-5 I'm rooting B1G first and foremost.

I have to say that while I disagree strongly with Space, Reader71, Reship1, The Last Hoke, Bododog (I think I got that one wrong) and Sten regarding Borges I have to admidt you guys are amoung my favorite posters on the board right now.
I really like all of your posts and respect the hell out of your arguements for Borges while I disagree with your conclusions. That to me is what makes this board fantastic - spirited debate with people of like mind but different viewpoints.

Is Heiko's really gone? How the Hell did I miss that announcement? I give that guy SO much credit for having both the brains to understand what was going on and the huge balls to ask questions nobody else had the stones to ask. I would literally skim pressers looking for his questions cause they were usually the only ones that made any sense and required the coach to actually think about the response and not give some bullshit canned response.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I would do anything for an||
I would do anything for an MNC.....
But I won't do that.
|1 day 19 hours ago||I've heard tell of other||
I've heard tell of other alumni on the board who've made a similar decision to not renew. A couple of them got roundly chastized by others for talking about it all the time so they don't mention it anymore but trust me - they're with you.
|1 day 19 hours ago||What a great analogy. But||
What a great analogy. But like a lot of resturants that used to be great at one time but no longer are, it's living on its reputation for greatness instead of the actual product. You see it all the time in the food industry - a once great resturant living solely on what it used to be.
Making matters worse for this customer at least, is that the owner (Hoke) keeps telling me his head chef Borges is wonderful and whips up the most AMAZING dishes (like ND & OSU) but for me, every third meal is unedible (PSU, Iowa, Nebraska, MSU, etc) so I'm having a hard time justifying his 5 star prices based on his past glory.

My bad. I thought he had a year left.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Isnt that exactly the point||
Isnt that exactly the point of a hypothetical? To propose something that didnt happen so you can discuss the "what if"?
Of course it didnt happen and my point, perhaps poorly stated, was not that ALL Michigan fans would support such a thing if he did it. My point was that I believe the majority of fans would as they would see it as an act of defiance to a crowd (OSU's) we dont like very much.
I have no way of knowing if this would acually happen though. Just a guess.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Exactly right. And for those||
Exactly right. And for those that think if Miller leaves OSU is going to take a big step backward I invite them to watch the Cal-OSU game or any of the others where he got significant playing time.
That dude is good. VERY good.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I dont think it's that||
I dont think it's that strange at all. I'm sure that happens way more frequently than we know, it's just ashes and not identifiable human remains like these were so we never really know.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Extremely well said Eric. I||
Extremely well said Eric. I would just ask this question - if one of our players did this in Columbus, say a Jake Ryan for example, in a game we won - would we be collectively upset and demanding he be suspended or would we be congradulating him?
I'm guessing the vast majority of the board wouldnt want him suspended.......
|1 day 20 hours ago||Anybody, and I do mean||
Anybody, and I do mean ANYBODY, who actually watched the 2009 team play would know there is no way in holy hell the D was "better" than the O. The fact that this analysis somehow suggests that it was just shows how flawed the conclusions they draw from their data set must be.
This doesnt come close to passing the eye test IMO.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Me too. I was surprised they||
Me too. I was surprised they didnt at least use him a little bit this year to get him on the field and if he's not going to get PT next year I would stunned.
It doesnt make sense to me unless there's a super-secret back story nobody's talking about. The guy's attitude seems top-notch and he came in with one of the strongest profile's in his class but he cant see the field? WTF?

The tiny corner shown in the picture looks good to me.
Not that anybody in the athletic department gives two shits what I think........

2-3. There is nothing yet in Hoke's resume at Michigan that should give us any sense of false security that we're going to turn things around and start winning road games against quality opponents. We have yet to win even one road game against a team with a better than 500 record.
Until I see it happen once I'm betting against it happening.

As stated on draft day, the Pistons have consistently refused to draft any Michigan player for decades - not just under Dumar's watch. It would seem that there is some sort of internal policy forbidding the drafting of Wolverines locally cause it would lead to horrible things like increased fan interest, strong community relations and an overall better win/loss record and those things need to avoided at all costs.

"I'd be more than happy to make a wager with any of the anti-Borges crowd: I'll bet every last point of mine against yours (point for point) that Michigan is at least 9-3 next year, at least 10-2 in 2015, and consistently at that level or better from that point forward."
Steven R.......I'll call. 8-5 or worse with no B1G Championship, no BCS game and another year of frustrating and inexplicable play calls from Borges.
Consider me and you "all in" on this one.

Thanks guys. i just fired up the computer and even though the game was over I just scrolled down slowly and "read" the game as it unfolded.
Nicely done all. Especially you Mr. Berenson!
