|1 day 13 hours ago||Is this...||
...the same thing that was mentioned a few days back about the tweets with these guys?
Just wondering if it's the same event (with video) or a different event altogether.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Sweet.||
I'll change that on NCAA Football '15 for PS4.
|1 day 23 hours ago||As a sub?||
Nah, no thanks...I think that role would've been perfect for him. But I agree to disagree because it's all hindsight.
In the end, we needed a 3rd CDM. Really would've liked to see Bradley drop back there and Wondo or Diskerud come in for the CAM spot at times during the WC.
|1 day 23 hours ago||It was far from a negative experience.||
That's my point.
I mentioned things that I think were positive. But Brian basically said everything Brandon has been all negative except for the patches.
Everyone was kissing his ass when he was paying for big contracts for the football assistants. Same recently when he ponied up to keep the MBB staff.
I mention those because those were things literally at both ends of his Michigan career, he's done a hell of a lot more in between.
You can get better than Brandon, no doubt...but you also can get a HELL of a lot worse.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Why wasn't Peppers listed?||
And has he gotten #2 yet?
|2 days 58 min ago||Why?||
|2 days 58 min ago||Why?||
|2 days 59 min ago||I agree with Edu...actually all of the subs||
We literally had no backup at the Jones/Beckerman spot (unless Bradley was going to play there...which he wasn't).
Edu would've been a needed sub, especially as Jones and Beckerman ran themselves into the ground in consecutive matches.
Davis was pointless to have on this team as Zuzi was better at set pieces...or as good...or not a significant drop off. We also had Bedoya. And then if Altidore doesn't get hurt you play Dempsey back there, Bradley in the middle and Zuzi/Bedoya on the other wing. Diskerud was also an option.
Davis wasn't ever needed.
Edu would've been perfect to sub for Jones or Beckerman. I think Chandler should be learning that spot, but that's another discussion. And just because I think he's awful as a defender.
....Johnson was obviously needed in the Altidore absense. And Donovan would've been a nice addition as a sub late in games. Especially when Altidore went out.

Please play two strikers always. Thank you.
One can be the smaller Dempsey/Wondo type, but get a big physically guy and one of those guys at all times.
Oh and move Timmy Chandler to the Jones spot, not saying he makes the roster, but he can't be on the last line. He just can't. Besides, you have Yedlin and Johnson who will be your guys for the next 4 years.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I'm sure...||
Dilfer thinks he's a pitcher...which a lot of QB's have been in the past.
Hell, I assumed he was a pitcher until I read this thread.
|2 days 13 hours ago||I'm sorry Brian...but this is BULLSHIT||
"I do like the legends patches (if only they'd stop screwing with people's numbers), but the rest of the changes he's made to the Michigan gameday experience have been negative."
1. UTL I & II were AMAZING - especially the first one, it was a home run on every level. II was a very solid sequel.
2. The renovations have all been well done. I hadn't been on campus in 10 years and have come back twice to see the Crisler, Yost and Schbechler Hall upgrades and all were much needed improvements. Sure there are complaints in each, but they weren't negative.
3. Hoke has had a better 3 year tenure than Rich Rod by almost all accounts, I can't say it's positive by "MICHIGAN" standards, but how is it negative? Especially when you look at what he was given.
4. Brandon has kept Beilein and his entire staff when the heat was on...the program is better than it's EVER been under Brandon. He's given big time raises to secure the coaching staff and the future of the program. Negative? Yeah, right.
5. I'm not a lacrosse guy, but Brandon has implemented that program and it grows each and every day.
6. He's hired and/or retained a number of successful coaches of olympic sports.
He's not God. He may not even be a great AD...but he's done more than unretire numbers and put patches on jerseys (which wasn't 100% Brandon at ALL).
|3 days 16 hours ago||maybe||
He should just get a really tall ladder and have the best of both worlds.
|1 week 13 hours ago||HAIL.||
If anyone saw the M flag (and American) flag during the France/Germany match...it was me.
Can't wait for the final here in Rio.
I'll share an update for those who care in the coming days...the first four days have beeen "tourist" days...tomorrow begins the official vacation.
|1 week 3 days ago||It could very well be official and realistic||
If he's in cleats.
Which for a football player isn't a far fetched idea.
|1 week 3 days ago||BOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!||
|1 week 5 days ago||It's 48 hours after this post...||
It's very likely that no one will ever read my comment.
But that picture of Beilein still moves me. That is the type of love and support all players should have from their coach.
If Beilein keeps this up, there is no question that his name should be hanging in the rafters at the Crisler Center. It's the house that HE built (Cazzie, built the arena).
This kind of gesture speaks volumes, it's not craving attention, there is no agenda, it's just something a father would do for his son. Beilein over EVERYBODY.
Win or lose, there isn't one coach I'd rather have, not Izzo or Coach K, not Phil Jackson or Calipari. For Michigan - Beilein is perfect.
|1 week 5 days ago||I had a feeling this game was going to be just like yesterday||
PKs to decide a winner and then Costa Rica would beat Greece in a lesser game in a similar fashion to Colombia.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'll say what I feel||
So nan-na-nan-na boo-boo.
|1 week 5 days ago||Wow what a save...||
Ochoa strikes again.
|1 week 5 days ago||Ha||
I thought the same thing...
|1 week 5 days ago||Cooling Break||
What a concept when it's 90 outside.
|1 week 5 days ago||Unfortunately||
This is way more exciting for OSU than Michigan.
|1 week 5 days ago||Clearly you guys haven't watched ANY Mexican soccer.||
These guys have been doing the Mexico games for awhile now. Just like Darke/Twellman do the U.S.
If you don't watch soccer...don't complain about the announcers.
That would be like Maryland and New Jersey getting access to Branstatter on Michigan radio and complaining about him.
Is he the best? No. But don't come into the B1G complaining about something that has been around long before you arrived.
That said...you know soccer is getting popular when...
(Americans are complaining about the announcers during a Mexico match)
|1 week 5 days ago||Wow||
Early sub of the Netherlands.
|1 week 5 days ago||Robben||
Is gonna poke someone's eye out the way he runs.
|1 week 5 days ago||I don't care who wins this game...||
...definitely rooting for Costa Rica in game #2.
|1 week 6 days ago||Hail Herrera||
|1 week 6 days ago||No.||
He's means Jones.
Jonns' strike vs. Portugal was very similar to Messi, he was just coming from the right and Messi to the left. I thought Messi's ball moved a little more and it was a game winner. For me, Messi when's a tiebreak.
However I still may put the Jones goal in Alum's top 5 with the clear cut 3 and the Messi goal.
|1 week 6 days ago||They get a rest||
When guys are rolling around flopping or a few guys can rest when the ball is at the other end of the field depending on what position they play.
It's not shifts like hockey.
But it's not like no one ever stops moving.
|1 week 6 days ago||This is the most uninformed comment ever.||
There is literally NO way you can justify those comments or that opinion other than you're ignorant and trying like hell to be funny.
