I can just picture every OSU fan I know saying some variation of "well we beat you and we SUCK this year." This cannot happen.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Beautifully written. The||
Beautifully written. The point of the other guy's post was not that Brian should have written "rape isn't good and it's a terrible act" but that the post had a tone of "well this is embarassing to the university and because of that I am outraged."
In Brian's defense this is a sports blog about the University of Michigan, and it makes sense that basically everything should be written through a lense of sports and UM.

A "cover up" would mean that someone made sure that authorities never found out about it. Not going to the press or telling people on the street does not constitute a cover up or shady business.

There are a lot of rappers out right now who don't say anything but sound good doing it like Rich Homie or A$AP. Have you listened to any of Big KRIT's stuff? He's my favorite lyrical rapper out right now.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||If you're just into boom bap||
If you're just into boom bap listen to Joe Bada$$'s tape 1999, this song is a highlight. He's got a dumb name but the kid knows what he's doing on beat selection and on the mic. Danny Brown's last album Old also had some good old school type beats. Also the Underachievers and Stoopz N' Breeze.
Good hip hop's out there man.

|13 weeks 2 days ago||Conspiracy time||
Alright everyone, gather round and put on your tinfoil hats: Does anyone else think that there's a possibility that the Big Ten brass see the value in an OSU win and will do something to influence the game? I don't expect anything if it's a blow out either way, but if it's a tight ball game I am half expecting to see some help for OSU in the form of pass interference calls or no calls in OSU's favor.
Call me crazy, but I think that Jim Delany and the other guys who run the B1G recognize what a huge opportunity they have here. They have a big name team with a new big name coach who has gone 25-0 over the course of his tenure there. With an OSU win this week there is a great chance that the SEC's championship will be broken (albeit by default) and who could think of a better way to kick off the new look Big Ten than with a title winner? I don't have any inside information on the subject but the B1G has a lot to gain with an OSU win.
Also, chemtrails are chemicals used to control our minds and Gordon Gee is a reptilian man.

If there indeed is a coaching change coming I don't think speculation on who it is is necessary.

Honestly, as classless and immature as it was, it was pretty funny.

Ace Williams is literally 16 years old, and he's not mature for his age.

At what point can we, as Michigan fans, admit that some years State has a pretty good team? Not every year, but we should be able to have the humility to give our rivals credit when they put together something decent.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||I did not realize that the QB||
I did not realize that the QB is off limits AT ANY TIME after a change of possesion (ie fumble/interception). I forgot these guys aren't football players too. What a soft rule.

Had a small class with Mike. Very nice guy, I'm glad to see him sticking in the NFL.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Why stop at 3? We should go||
Why stop at 3? We should go to a 5 tackle system. Theoretically tackles are the best offensive linemen in pass protection due to their above average athleticism. Take this principle and envision a line with 5 roaming tackles who exist solely to pick people up in pass protection. Slap a #40 on a 6th tackle and put him next to Gardner in the shotgun. At the snap he too becomes a roaming protector. Devin would have all day to pass and the coverage would eventually break down or the defensive linemen would pass out in exhaustion and Devin could gain a nice 10 yards on a scramble.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||There's only so much you can||
There's only so much you can do as a coach, especially in the season. I'm sure Funk and Borges are looking at their offense and wondering what they can do better. I think looking at your personnel is also important and I'm glad they're at least trying something.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||They called that position a||
They called that position a lot of things but I believe they settled on "Woah, that's only ten guys? Get out there and play defense!"
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed. I'm as disappointed||
Agreed. I'm as disappointed in our line play and coaching staff as anyone but the constant whining and rehashing of the same opinions in every single thread gets old to the point that I'm reading the blog significantly less these days.

Brian will steal this if we ever run tackle over to Magnuson's side.

My liver feels a drinking game coming on...
|21 weeks 1 day ago||If anyone wants to fire Hoke||
If anyone wants to fire Hoke because of this game they're not very intelligent. Yes he made mistakes and yes Borges should be reviewed but he deserves a fair shake.

I like the TuneIn Radio app. You put it on your phone and just tune it to whatever radio station carries the game. It'll let you search for specific games I believe, but if not 100.3 in Minneapolis/St. Paul should get it.

I don't know about that. If I were Nebraska I'd take a deep breath and give Pelini at least another year. Two marquee programs are likely going to be on the prowl for a new head coach after this year. Waiting a year and being one of the bigger fish in the pond would be better for them.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Hey man, I've gone through||
Hey man, I've gone through something similar and let me tell you that getting the help you need, as hard as it might be, is the right thing to do. Remember that every problem is temporary. Your kids love you and need you. If you can't do it for you, get help for their sake.

The key is to never take anything too seriously. Really I'm just hoping that the moderation system comes back!

|23 weeks 4 days ago||My grievance is with Brian.||
My grievance is with Brian. You'd think a guy who gets to run a sports blog for a living would be much more pleasant and cordial with his users. I can sort of understand his frustrations from the thread last night. Users shouldn't make fun of recruits etc.
However, Brian has become so derisive to his user base that it's really off putting. Even before yesterday's meltdown he has shown it. For example, take a look at the last paragraph from the most recent Picture Pages:
"Who's up for a tedious 150 comment thread questioning whether it's worthwhile to read this? I certainly am! I hope there are content-free arguments. Let's make sure to ignore Ka'Deem Carey's 2000 yards last year when we're incensed at the idea Rich Rodriguez might be able to coach a run game."
Honestly I love the site and all the free content but it's tough to enjoy it when the author is calling you an idiot. Brian obviously thinks the user base is steadily declining and instead of implementing a system to remedy that (maybe the voting system, maybe something else), he is content to just look down at us and insult us because he knows that we have nowhere else to go.
