@mGrowOld - and don't forget they have to be 5*'s across the board....anything else results in a tire fire.

AJ was a multi year starter and Heisman finalist playing behind one of the top OL's in the country with top playmakers all around him.....he, of all players, should trusted to make plays. Asking Devin to consistently throw the ball well when he was having trouble identifying defensive alignments and with a shaky OL and RBs was insanity.

Why is that, nappa18? I tend to think the head of the organization, which is what DB is, should be at something like the announcement of a major new hire. One that DB would have had to approve. If anything he should make the announcement, pass the mike to Hoke to make some comments and then to pass it off to Nussmeier...that's the chain of command. Unless you're OSU where the AD is the puppet and the HC is the one calling all the shots.

You think Borges would take the job? That would do it....

I thought the entire point of the BCS was to eliminate split championships and that now, with the BCS in charge, the AP "champion" was no longer recognized?
Is that wrong?
|9 weeks 3 days ago||It seems like the D struggled||
It seems like the D struggled no matter what the O was doing. Even in games where we put up tons of points, the D struggled mightily. Copper Bowl being the most recent example where KSU was able to do whatever they wanted starting on the very first drive of the game where they systematically marched down and scored. Then followed that up with another long scoring drive.....then another......then another.
Our D deserves equal blame but at least Mattison proved the first year that if he has the right guys, he can put a dominant D out there. Borges hasn't had the same performance so everyone is clamoring for him to be fired.
1 more season will give us an answer and hopefully we can continue the recruiting so by year 5 A.RR, whether it is Hoke and Co or someone else, we'll have the guys we need in place to dominate again - or at least be competitive.

Is Capt. Renault a part of the UT program?

"Where do you think all this money is going? Into his pocket?"
A large chunk of it is....have you seen his salary? Have you seen the budget for the AD growing massivley since he took over? He created a number of new positions in the AD and is paying them above average wages for roles that aren't proven to be necessary. This is not Domino's Pizza where you need an army of marketers to convince people to buy your shitty product. Michigan Football, by and large, sells itself.

"Do you think that after all of this money is used to improve infastructure that they will still keep charging extra? "
Yes. Once the bar goes up, it will never go down unless there is a mass mutiny from the fans. He will find reasons to keep prices up and new uses for the winfall revenues. It will never go down unless fans mutiny en mase and even then, it is not 100% for sure that prices would come back down because the tv revenues are growing to be a much larger percentage of over all profits for AD's all over the country. Ticket prices will not drive this bus for long.

Why not go North? The game is in September, there won't be any snow for them to be scared of? And then we would go the following year to the South, right?
Seems ideal to me....

I've never wanted to know but thanks to serious inomcpetence by people making millions, I get to now.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Where am I at? Busy||
Where am I at? Busy applauding the fans who are the ones who pay the astronomically high prices arbitraily set by DB to be fans of our great academic and athletic insitution.
DB has almost nothing to do with the value of our team. We would be top 5-10 regardless.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I have a very "meh" feeling||
I have a very "meh" feeling about all of this. If Borges is truly the OC genius he says he is, then next year our Offense will be lights out and this kid will come back into the fold to be part of an exciting team on the upswing. If not, we will have much bigger problems than George Campbell decommitting.
There is too much that can happen between now and his actual signing day for me to be worried about his commitment right now. Ask me again in December of 2014 and I'll let you know.

Let the kid play....sit DG and give him a chance to heal up. I hope DG is healthy and can play but after everything he did for the team this year, I would understand holding him out.

Thinners for the time being. Hoping to get off after another year but it is tough to go off and trust my body right now. We will see.

@Geaux_Blue I'll try to keep this short but here are my experience's with bloodclots.
The first blood clot I had felt like I pulled my calf muscle. I went for a run one day, felt gassed and was cramping up the entire way so I cut it short and walked the rest of my usual loop. The next morning I had serious calf muscle pain that extended all the way down to my Achilles’ area. Because there was not much swelling I had no idea it was a blood clot and spent the better part of 6 months trying to "rehab" thinking this is what happens when you get older and aren't being careful. It took 2 years for me to be able to run without pain.
Flash forward another year and I'm going in for a surgery on my other leg. The Dr. orders a Doppler of both my legs and asks me about my blood clot to which I respond: what blood clot? He explained to me that I had evidence of a DVT and that the vein had re-canalized so I was ok. Lucky, as he put it.
Second blood clot happened 3 months later after the surgery and it felt very different. It happened behind my knee. There was some swelling, I couldn’t bend my knee all the way, and by the time I noticed it and headed to the Dr.’s office a chunk broke off and lodged in my chest. I’ll never forget the feeling – searing heat traveling up my leg and then the equivalent of a straight punch to the chest. 3 days in the ICU and $16,000 in hospital bills later and I’m doing fine.
So, two very different experiences and from what I was told most times people can’t feel blood clots. If you ever suspect you have one, go get checked out. A quick trip to the ER is cheaper than a prolonged stay in the ICU and the prognosis is better too!

THIS * 1,000 @Dominick's Lunch. The obsession with MSU around here is getting way out of hand. Congratulate them and move on. Part of being the "big brother" is showing class and sportsmanship in defeat and in understanding this is a blip in the radar and all will be back to normal shortly.

I'm not so sure we are all actually adults around here....and by that I mean I'm sure there are a bunch of teenagers lurking around.
I am surprised, though, at some of the behavior exhibited guys I know to be adults.

|13 weeks 3 days ago||What? So we intentionally||
What? So we intentionally went away from what worked........and focused on things that did not work.....so that NEXT year we would be better at the plays that didn't work this year?
In what world does that make sense? Maybe in the pros where losing is offset by better draft positions but that is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. Especially as losing really hurts in recruiting....something we desperately need to continue doing well with if we ever hope to be ok at football again.

"They are doing this because they believe it is the move to get them to where we all want to go."
The problem is with another down year (7-5/8-4) there will be no evidence that keeping Hoke, Broges, et al, is the "move to get them to where we all want to go."
Youth won't be accepted as an excuse and Devin will be a 2.5 year starter. It's next year or bust for Hoke. Or at least it should be based on evidence if we have another bad year.

Yeah the problem is we got a lot of -2's instead of 0's in past games.

Today of all days the D had to show up and couldn't. Not sure what happened to the unit that dominated in 2011 but I get the feeling that our weak DL is really the big problem here. No pressure up front means you get exposed everywhere.

Offense played great, 1 play short of an epic upset. No complaints today.
|14 weeks 12 hours ago||But how do you fire your||
But how do you fire your current coach without knowing who is interested? He either got played by Harbaugh, which I doubt, or he knew he wanted Hoke and that was it.
I get the feeling, more and more, that DB is the college version of Jerry Jones, including the meddling and micromanagement, and that he will cost us top talent in coaching because who wants to work for that guy?

@reader71 - this seems completely disingenuos and cherry picking timeframes. Over the arc of their entire careers, what do their records look like?
