Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Not sure if serious?
Elam played like a terror all game. If we had a safety like that we'd be in much better shape.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Do not like. Look kind of||
Do not like. Look kind of cheesy to me, hopefully with the jersey that changes.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Really dumb. I don't see how||
Really dumb. I don't see how the players would win this, and they shouldn't win.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Crosby and Datsyuk are||
Crosby and Datsyuk are different players. Their styles of play leads one to get beaten on a lot more than the other.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||I hate the Pens and Crosby a||
I hate the Pens and Crosby a lot also. Just don't let ridiculous bias get in the way of assessing his play.
I am a Leafs fan (yes it sucks dick), far from a Pens slappy.

The bitterness runs deep in you guys.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||He is giving what he is||
He is giving what he is getting. And saying he is a more than a goon than anything is utterly ridiculous. Might not be Olympics, but probably him beating the Wings in the Cup. And you say he picks fights, Giroux was just as instrumental in that fight as Crosby was, so not sure what you are saying. In the third he got in a scuffle with Schenn, Schenn cross checked Crosby from behind about a week ago for no reason.
Lots of guys out there talking, using their sticks. Crosby is one of the few who backs it up. You hate him because he is good, not because he talks. Lots of players on the Wings over the years who did the exact same thing, and I highly doubt you hate them.
Case and point Franzen spearing someone on the bench, no one here saying anything about that.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Briere, Neal, Quick, Dustin||
Briere, Neal, Quick, Dustin Brown have been the best players I've seen so far this year. Very impressive.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||He's playing a physical game||
He's playing a physical game and he gets battered around. Crosby needs to stick up for himself, and he does. Sure he talks a lot, but you say he cross checks, picks fights etc. He gets it way worse than he gives.
I hate Crosby also, but your criticism is unwarranted. Kid is still by far the best player in hockey by a longshot, and is far from a goon. I know a lot of you guys hate Crosby because of his role in the Olympics (I hate him also) but you are letting your hate blind you from the truth.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||I'm going to have to disagree||
I'm going to have to disagree with your assessment of Crosby. He has 5 points in 3 games. I hate the guy, but still.
Luongo has looked fine in net, team just sucks.
Dustin Brown is the guy along with Quick leading that team, not Kopitar.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Agree to disagree. Weber is a||
Agree to disagree. Weber is a solid guy, and is a solid coach. I think K-State (mediocre program) did very well to land Weber.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||He got tossed under the bus||
He got tossed under the bus mid-season and it was rumored he was gone (they were doing decently at that point). After that the team started sucking.
Seems like Illinois AD wanted him gone, and were part of the reason the team was so miserable this year. We've all seen it's hard to succeed when your Coach and Athletic department are pulling opposite ways.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Solid hire IMO. Bruce got a||
Solid hire IMO. Bruce got a raw deal at Illinois, and replacing Martin with Weber isn't bad.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||I hate USC also; Cravens||
I hate USC also; Cravens unfortunately doesn't.
Hating them won't change reality though.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Lol I guess. Just seems||
Lol I guess. Just seems everyone is setting themselves up for dissapointment.
He is going to USC, sooner everyone realizes this the less dissapointed you will be.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Yeh Cravens is not coming to||
Yeh Cravens is not coming to Michigan.
Seems he is this years keep talking about a guy we have no chance with.
Jernigan, HaHa, Diggs, and now Cravens.

As Blue in South Bend pointed out:
Sometimes When Your On is my favorite. Someone should update to include this past great season.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Him talking about Kovacs at||
Him talking about Kovacs at 11:00 mark made me laugh. Kovacs and G-Matt are awesome.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Woah, nothing is better than||
Woah, nothing is better than Vitale baby!!
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Just watched the video,||
Just watched the video, powerful stuff. I will most definitely do what I can to help.

Go Blue! Beat Ohio.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||You think he is quick enough||
You think he is quick enough laterally to play 3-tech?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Based of what some top||
Based of what some top Michigan recruitniks are saying, I like our chances with Garnett a lot.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||The Blue Board is essentially||
The Blue Board is essentially a main board where everyone is. It's usually great discussion and has some funny stuff as well. There is some bitching between MSU and UM. AU and Bama, but some good guys on there and the mods especially Witfong are good and answer questions well.
OT: I didn't want to start a topic but check this out. This is what they posted tonight BTW. And if you ever trusted someone for 1 thing, this is the time. Check this out.

I said he was staying South on GBW on the weekend everyone lost their shit. Kinda funny.
|3 years 50 weeks ago||Nadal is just dominating||
Nadal is just dominating right now. He is playing fantastic after starting slowly. Don't understand why everyone hates Nadal though. He is sick and plays a more exciting style than Federer. It's ridiculous watching Nadal on clay.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Let's guess who will commit||
Let's guess who will commit in June then.
Wayne Morgan for sure.
Jordan Diamond looks like he will commit soon probably in June.
And perhaps Burbridge? These are my 3 guesses.

Thanks for that Irish... I don't know what you hoped to achieve by making this post personally.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Agreed. I also think,||
Agreed. I also think, although Julio is a great talent, he isn't the type of WR the Falcons needed. They needed a true vertical threat to stretch the field, Julio is great. But I don't see him being the vertical threat they needed. AJ Green would have been a much better fit.

Nice pick the Lions had yesterday. As a Bills fan, the people I was with all erupted when you took Fairley. Fairley and Suh is downright scary.
Bills took Dareus which I was thrilled with. I'm hoping they snag Bowers at 34. Hope the 2nd round is as whacky as the first.
