to play football, not to play trumpet

But I would venture to say that for these guys missing 5 games will drive them to declare for the draft. I know your plethora of 4-5 star guys in the waiting are just going to continue the dominance (even though Herron was by FAR your best RB), and losing you start receivers in Sanzenbacher and Posey is no big deal but you're in for a rude awakening. This more or less decimates the offense to go along with a defense losing quite a bit. I appreciate your optimism and confidence in your team but I think you'll see what I mean in 2011.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||It's not that they're going||
It's not that they're going to lose that irritates me, it's the fact they cannot do ANYTHING today. A loss I can live with, a blowout.....eh not so much.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Mustaches||
.....are creepy and therefore Tiller & Hope both weirded me out.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||It's kinda funny||
That before this past weekend nobody was even thinking about Arnett possibly being an option and after his decision tomorrow some will have a minor meltdown when he decides to go somewhere other than Michigan. I for one am hoping Michigan can pull past Clemson for Watkins services. Arnett has as much as talent as anyone but as Magnus eluded to I'd rather have a kid whose character gets talked about in a positive light as much as his skillset.

So now none of them are coming this weekend?
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Mouton||
Correct it? Really? Cause it looks like every week you come out and make the same mistakes over and over and over...... This defense makes me cringe every time they step on the field. At this point managing one more win unless a small miracle happens looks like all that's in this teams future. Illinois has really come on and Wisconsin and OSU have been playing at a high level all year so here's to the Purdue game.
|5 years 16 weeks ago||Yesterday's Game||
Can be blamed on special teams who TWICE gave Iowa a short field in a critical time of the game with our fabulous kicker who can't keep the ball in bounds, the offense who again gave Iowa a short field with 2 interceptions and Smith who fumbled in the red zone. I was encouraged a little by the defense yesterday. A loss is a loss but penalties and execution killed us. When you outgain a team by almost 200 yards you shouldn't be playing from behind all game. Defense is still a long way from being good but at least the whole team fought til the end. GO BLUE!
|5 years 18 weeks ago||Agreed||
That too! My wife started doing it but flipping off the TV at the end which may have been almost equally annoying.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||What I learned||
1. Indiana fans suck! Real classy move cheering when Denard went down. Next year I hope we beat you by 4-5 td's in Ann Arbor.
2. I get severe anxiety watching Michigan's defense and tend to throw various objects around my house.
3. I heart Denard.
4. These games give me another excuse to drink more silver bullets on Saturday.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||So at this point||
Is Plan B Nealy? Not saying it's over with Hart by any means but I just don't hear too many names at RB other than him or Rawls. There's still work to be done on the academic side with Rawls so hoping some other players have caught their eye.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||So what do you guys think||
Dump Cleveland in my fantasy league as a WR or keep him?
|5 years 20 weeks ago||Tate is like....||
Drew Brees only with a much cooler name and more kick-ass website.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||Agreed||
Luck has looked great so far. He will be the best passing QB Notre Dame has seen so far this season. With those safeties that could spell trouble. Harrison Smith is athletic but Motta is out of position a lot.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||Count me as a huge Lewan fan||
Not only for his play and the fact that he's going to be a beast in his career but also because after the game he was just a great guy. We stayed to try and get some pics for our ongoing basement renovation and subsequent M Man Cave and he was just in a good mood which is hard to say since the locker room talk after the game couldn't have been pleasant. Gladly took a photo and autographed everything any kid brought to him.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Amen West Texas Blue||
We just went up against what is widely considered the best WR and TE in all of college football and while Rudolph had a big game, albeit a HUGE chunk off one play, what did Floyd do? Nothing. Crist is a competent QB and that was probably the best receivers we'll face all year. Do they need to continue to improve, sure. We always do. But am I satisfied? Yes sir! Good post WTB. Go Blue!
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Meh....||
ND was going to put it to us last year too with the all-everything offense..............
|5 years 22 weeks ago||This was great news.....||
.....destroyed my defense this week in fantasy football!
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Steele vs. Madison||
Maybe it's just me but I thought the two RB's in that game - Brown and Green - were the best running backs I saw from the games I watched (Plant - Manatee being the other). Not to take anything away from Blakely but those two looked primed to get some PT next year wherever they end up.
|5 years 24 weeks ago||The strategy for this year has to change||
Where we were once thinking secondary recruiting was close to finished is definitely being reassessed. I know we already have Hollowell & Brown committed (both smaller CB's) but Michigan needs to land some impact players in this class. I really hope that Walls is blown away by his official but it would be nice to add someone like Showers too. Is Lyons going to be a S or CB at the college level? From the most recent updates we currently aren't in on many top flight CB's which can always change.
Question for Magnus, if you're reading. Do you think as the season gets rolling that Avery and Christian start seeing any meaningful reps or if they do will it be because the team is having serious issues in the secondary and are trying anything?
|5 years 25 weeks ago||My Recommendation||
Last year in our league I had Colin Kaepernick and he had really solid weeks with a lot of TD's. My other QB was Russel Wilson who proved to be a pretty good dual threat as well. They both accounted for a lot of TD's. A sleeper pick at WR may be Austin Pettis, watch for a big year out of him this year at Boise after a very solid one last year.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||You heard wrong. Roh actually||
You heard wrong. Roh actually shaved double lines in each brow ala Vanilla Ice.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Yeah I am with ya, a Shogun||
Yeah I am with ya, a Shogun v. Rampage match-up would be fun to watch as they will both come and just bang.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Damn I missed that, thanks||
Damn I missed that, thanks for the heads up. I thought Gomi was off for way too long.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Yeah I don't think Belcher||
Yeah I don't think Belcher can beat Silva but I think he will get a shot in the near future. At this point who is really going to beat Silva at that weight? Guy is a phenomenal fighter but many more fights like his last couple and no one will want to watch anymore. What I'd love to see if UFC somehow sign Takanora Gomi and put him up against BJ Penn at 155 - now that would be a fight.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Perception is reality. Trent||
Perception is reality. Trent thought he was better than maybe he actually was and RR thought he under performed and lacked a few things which maybe he did. At the end of the day I really don't care what he says at this point because someone with character and desire is going to make the best out of a situation. If your boss changes at work do you go sulk in a corner and not do your job to the best of your ability? Maybe he should've taken some notes from BG who came to play 110% every game of every year regardless of the coach. Some players come to play football for the sport it is and some are primadonnas.
|5 years 41 weeks ago||For some reason when I||
For some reason when I glanced at your response I thought it said "I thought this was about if Tiger can score" and I thought to myself - what kind of stupid question is that. Guy is the definition of a panty dropper.
|5 years 42 weeks ago||They were both there||
As was M-Rob, they were sitting with all the recruits. Paskorz is a big kid, looks like he has been putting on some weight for sure.
|5 years 43 weeks ago||I'm shocked it smeared||
Whenever I colored in my friends face with a Sharpie in college it wouldn't even come off with paint thinner. I thought a baseball would hold up better than skin.
|5 years 44 weeks ago||I'll co-sign that. Demps was||
I'll co-sign that. Demps was a track mega-star in HS and apparently is only getting better. Dude is fast! Not saying Denard isn't but he wouldn't beat Demps.
|5 years 45 weeks ago||Good for you. I debated hard||
Good for you. I debated hard on it myself last year, was thinking of applying for officer school with the Air Force. In the end my wife was just too against it. I definitely applaud you.
