In answering my own question...
Coaches I hate...(B1G only)
#1 Tom Crean
(oddly enough I like 3 of the other 5 and I'm indifferent about the other 2 of 5)
Players I hate...(B1G only)
#1 Will Sheehey
(oddly enough, I don't think there are any other players in the B1G that I truly hate. I may not like a bunch...but I don't dislike them like this 5. Guys like Amir Williams I just laugh at)
Teams I hate...(B1G only)
#1 MSU (because it's MSU) & Indiana (because of coach and players)
|1 hour 20 min ago||Yes.||
We can't do it now because we're on defense...but we should've run him over 2-3 times on offense.
|1 hour 30 min ago||The worst officiating I've seen in a loooooong time.||
It's like that blown shot clock call rattled them because after that it wa an avalanche of AWFUL calls.
We're definitely playing 5 v 8.
Crean is such a bitch ass.
|1 hour 43 min ago||I'd do it...||
Or you try to make a pass and you hit him before he can get off the court.
|1 hour 44 min ago||Who do you hate more?||
Sheehey or Craft?
Izzo or Crean?
|1 hour 49 min ago||By far||
The worst defense I've seen from Michigan in a since the Iowa game.
|1 hour 52 min ago||Had no idea this was the open thread til now...||
|2 hours 13 min ago||Was that a step back 3?||
|2 hours 14 min ago||J-MO IS PUTTING IN WORK!||
Go head boy. I see you.
|2 hours 26 min ago||There was just some stuff on Poggi||
From Mattison...and a little from Hoke.
That's all I heard. Basically it said that Hurst was the one getting all the buzz in practice in the fall/bowl season, but Poggi is really coming on now. He's playing SDE right now so he's kind of a tweener between that and the interior.
I don't see him making a huge impact this year because we have Beyer, Godin and Charlton at the SDE spot. Plus Strobel is there (even though I think he's ahead of Tom). I think both are bouncing back and forth between SDE and DT, but we're really starting to get some depth at both positions.
As for Darboh, he was the clear #2 before he got hurt last year. I think it really affected us because Chesson wasn't really ready early on.
I think Darboh reclaims his spot across from Funchess and Chesson is the 3rd guy. But all 3 will be on the field the majority of the time. I'm just not going to call Chesson a slot. Funchess has played in the slot, I'm sure Darboh will get snaps there. I just think those are your 3 WRs that are generally always on the field. Canteen/Norfleet will get sprinkled in just like Shallman/Kerridge.
|2 hours 33 min ago||Completely forgot Hurst||
He's DEFINITELY your 4th interior guy with Mone playing the Charlton role (at DE) as your 5th guy.
I don't think Mone redshirts because I believe he's already enrolled and Pipkins is hurt so he's getting some good reps right now.
|2 hours 36 min ago||Easy.||
|2 hours 39 min ago||Who do we care?||
And I mean he does play pretty solid defense. I wouldn't dare look at THJ's offensive numbers alone and think he deserved any of the hype he got or a 1st round pick. But he helps his team in other ways and he was asked to do certain things that maybe he wouldn't normally have to do.
Harris is a solid player. Sure he chucks...but who else on that team besides Payne do you trust shooting the ball?
Now look at Stauskas. Who else? LeVert. Okay...beside LeVert. Walton. Okay, he doesn't count. Albrecht. Anyone else? At least one of GRIII/Irvin.
MSU has at least 3 guys that actually get good minutes that when they shoot everyone on the team has to be like "NOOOOOOO!" or "BLOCK OUT!"
|2 hours 44 min ago||No.||
It's the muesum of advertisements. There Super Bowl wing is awesome. Last time I went I actually ran into the real "Jake from State Farm." Who actually wasn't as creepy as the dude from AT&T that sits in an emtpy classroom all day with different kids from different nationalities.
LOL - yes, it indeed was autocorrect.
|4 hours 48 min ago||No.||
No offense but we've been over this ad museum. There was even a post on the front page.
It would be VERY tough and we'd need an insane amount of help.
In the end, just we're in the tournament. If we win 1-2 more games we're a lock to be on the 2-3 line and that gives us a solid shot at some favorable matchups.
We literally need 4-5 teams not to win another game (regular or tournament) and we need to beat IU and win the B1G to sniff the top line.
So I'm not being a complete ass...here is the thread I was referring to: http://mgoblog.com/diaries/seed-watch-2014-who-root
It basically breaks down everything that we need and concludes that we're pretty much a 3-seed. Maybe a low 2-seed if a few things go our way.
|6 hours 2 min ago||It must.||
But it won't.
|6 hours 3 min ago||Good!||
Now excuses go from "we were injured" to "we didn't have time to get the chemistry back."
But whatever...just get the W and then get 3 more in the B1G. Then get 6 more in the NCAA Tournament.
No more losses this season, time to win out and bring up a couple of trophies.
|6 hours 5 min ago||Nice to mentioned...||
...He won't win, but back to back B1G POY is nothing to sneeze at. We should be recruiting some big time players with that nugget in our back pocket.
|23 hours 30 min ago||Very nice.||
Kind of sad...I felt like there should've been almost a change in music during the second half "redemption" highlights after the IU miss, but very nice.
Gonna miss J-Mo, but we've still go a big senior day tomorrow! I hope he gets some redemption of his own.
|23 hours 38 min ago||Meh||
I'm not going to bitch about the writing, but I definitely didn't learn anything that I didn't already know except maybe the first tidbit about J. Lewis (who I already had pegged as the starting Dime CB and backup Nickel to Peppers). Also the Dawson part was encouraging.
Devin will be the starting QB - but if he struggles, coaches will feel more comfortable with Morris. However, he's still a year away.
Green and Smith are your RBs.
Funchess and Darboh are your starting outside WRs and Chesson will be the #3 WR even though Canteen is the "slot" WR
Bunting will redshirt and we'll use multiple backs and WRs more early with the absence of Butt.
Dawson will be the #3 OT, but that wasn't a huge prediction. He really doesn't have much competition IMO. Mags and Braden will start...Dawson will be the #3. Just like I think Bosch and Kalis will start and Burzynski is the #3 OG. Kugler and Glasgow at the C spot.
Clark-Pipkins-Henry-Beyer is the starting lineup in the fall IMO, but...
I don't see Morgan doing anything to lose his starting spot, but we rotate the LBs enough that it doesn't matter. Snaps with Gedeon at WILL will be 50/50. Ryan and Bolden will be more like 75/25. Ross and RJS/McCray will be more like 65/35 IMO.
I think Stribling is your #3 outside corner all year with maybe Lewis supplanting him. I've got Lewis as your "starting" Dime CB and backup Nickel CB to Peppers (who I think plays Nickel all year because the coaches saw what moving Thomas around last year did to him and will be too scared to move Peppers around...I think he's the starting NB from day one and all season there is an injury)
Hill has always been the #3 S behind Wilson and Thomas...Clark is the #4 S.
To me, this offseason isn't really about guys finding roles and positions. It's about one thing and one thing only...getting better. Improvement is all we should be worried about. We finally have enough experienced bodies for the most part. They just have to take that next step...err LEAP forward.
|23 hours 59 min ago||lol||
I thought this thread was about the WBB game.
Just lost a heartbreaker by 3 in a game that we lead the entire way.
Pretty much exemplified why most people hate women's basketball. Just a completely different game.
Anyway...Go Blue MIH!!
|1 day 7 hours ago||It sounds good...||
...but no way to regulate that. Plus with media pressure. Any kid that commits and signs before his senior year to a school and then a coach gets fired mid or after the year will have all of the leverage in the world.
The media would make it look so bad on the school that it would affect other kids who may want to commit/sign because of the coaching staff and the relationships that are made.
If you're not enrolled, you should be able to get out of an NLI if the circumstances change.
If I want to be a chemist, musician or a doctor and I choose to go to a school because of a particular teacher, and that teacher retires, is fired, etc. --- and I haven't enrolled, I may very well think about going to another school.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Don't mind him...||
Hands down the worst poster on this board right now.
|1 day 8 hours ago||It just depends on the team...||
I believe we'd just lost in our Maize so we didn't wear them on the road @ MSU.
We can wear them as long as there is a contrast.
You can even wear white on the road or blue at home if you want. A lot of schools do this when they have their "red out" (or whatever color) type games.
|1 day 8 hours ago||The Official J-Mo Appreciation Thread||
...Thanks Jordan! You will be missed.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I care about it if we win...||
...if we lose, it doesn't mean anything. It's all about the regular season.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I'd rather have neither...||
If Sparty and Nebraska win then MSU gets the #2, Wisconsin gets the #3 and Nebraska is with us at the #4.
THAT is what I'm rooting for. I don't want OSU OR IOWA.
I realize Iowa would be a #5 and still on our side, but they'd be playing on the first day and would have to win 2 games to see us assuming we won our 1st game.

Completely missed the joke and got offended, lol
