|22 weeks 9 hours ago||So by your standards||
So by your standards we should delete all of the "highlight reel" plays made by our players. I mean, I sure hope the guys Hoke puts on the field have above average athleticism.
Just say it was a nice dunk and move on. It DID display above average athleticism and so does all of the other highlight reels, that's why they're being highlighted.
|22 weeks 13 hours ago||The OP said||
He never said "...because York can dunk he'll be a good WR."
You do agree that takes some above average athleticism, right?
It's fine to post this video and it's fine to say "Damn, that's a nice dunk". To downplay this is being negative for no reason.
It's ok to acknowledge a nice play without meaning this kid is going to be the best WR in Michigan history.
|22 weeks 15 hours ago||That was a sweet play||
It's too bad how negative and cynical the blog has gotten this year.
If Blake Griffin did this, it would be one of the top plays on Sportscenter. yet everyone is downplaying it. Be excited for the future Michigan man,
That was a nice steal, a great dunk over the top of someone and worth the watch.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||I don't know about carrying||
I don't know about carrying him off the field, but definitely give him the last knee to end the game. I know it will be extra dusty in the stadium if that happens.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||That's great but||
That's great but if you watch the games you can tell that our pass defense isn't that great. So many B1G QBs have missed huge opportunities to make big plays in the passing game. Our secondary has gotten beat repeatedly but the QBs are just missing.
So what would I say? I would say thank you to the B1G QBs for being absolutely terrible at hitting wide open WR.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||I just want him to play||
I just want him to play in his last game at Michigan Stadium. Records are nice and you can always play the what if I wasn't injured game with records, but it would really be a bummer if that injury took him out of his last game at Michigan Stadium. That to me would be worse than not getting the records.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||Gotta have fun with it||
Gotta have fun with it. I don't blame Bellomy for what happened on Saturday. It's what you expect from a RS Freshman in that environment, but we gotta be able to joke about it. It's my coping mechanism.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||Russell, is that you?||
Russell, is that you?
|32 weeks 19 hours ago||Yes please!||
Yes please! I'd love that. And like Magnus mentioned, board posts are good.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||One thing to consider||
One thing to consider, most first-time mothers go past their expected due date. My wife went 2 weeks (!) past her due date and then she finally went into labor after quite a bit of work on our part.
Tell your wife to lay low and not to do much, go enjoy the game. You'll be fine.
Okay, two things to consider.. Here is the second.. most first time mothers labor goes longer than 7 hours. If the drive is 7 hours, you should be able to make it back in time. Granted my wife's entire labor was 5.5 hrs with our son, but I said *most* first time mothers.
Seriously. Enjoy the game!
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Couldn't agree more||
Couldn't agree more with this... I'm pulling my hair out with all of the schedule comments.
A pre-season ranking is ranking the teams ability, not what their record might be. Let's take the USA Today Preseason Poll:
3. Southern California
7. Florida State
9. South Carolina
11. West Virginia
13. Michigan State
Do we think Michigan is worse than SC, Arkansas (John L!) and West Virginia? I don't. I think 8 is about right. I actually agree with Yahoo! more with #6. I think we're better than Georgia.
I would put us #7. Move Florida St. up to #6, and drop Georgia to #8.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||I get the team thing||
I get the team thing, but come on Jeremy, just pick one guy who is the toughest to block!
I'm just going to take this as our defensive players are equally great and they're all extremely hard to block.
And in reply to your kid, just use it as a teaching moment. On the inside, be proud your son can beat up a kid but teach him why it was wrong in this case and why stealing is wrong.
Not to hijack, but Greg Mattison and Brady Hoke were on a local West Michigan sports radio station this morning, if anyone is interested. You have to listen to the ever annoying Ray Bentley, but its fun normal fluff stuff from the coaches.

|40 weeks 5 days ago||Mattison also||
Mattison also said things are way different when they get the pads on.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||If he is in better shape||
If he is in better shape and lost his man boobs, how is he going to signal plays to the defense?
|41 weeks 6 days ago||If he can handle||
Agreed its best to safe than sorry, but if he can handle that weight for reps, then I don't see the need to think about touching the bar until the last rep. If this a 1RM, then yeah, maybe...
Barwis is a stud regardless and obviously knows what the hell he is doing. More than me, that's for sure.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||Damn||
Damn, that was impressive. Graham is a beast. Miss that guy.
What is also impressive is that he is giving out complimentary barbell rows while benching 500lbs (get your damn hands off the bar, Barwis!)
|42 weeks 21 hours ago||Strong work||
Strong work, jonvalk! This is pretty sweet.
I don't want to take away from the OP, but I dropped this in a "There are..." thread last week, thought I'd re-drop it here, since it seems to be a logical place. If enough people want a mobile version, I can do that as well.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||If the Pro Bowl||
If the Pro Bowl is still around then...
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed||
I had a Blackberry 3 years ago (not poking fun) and it was significantly easier to write an email with than my current iPhone. However, *everything* else is significantly easier on my iPhone than the Blackberry.
If you are forced to often write long emails via your smart phone then I'll give you that one, the Blackberry is easier, but it still doesn't mean it's cool or justified.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, all kids want Blackberries||
Yeah, all kids want Blackberries now-a-days. They're the coolest. Just ask his company. They know what's cool. They just gave him this sweet laptop to work from home:
|42 weeks 4 days ago||I did||
I did make this, so I will gladly take your 1000 MGoPoints. It would be fun to start a Wallpaper thread in August and see what people come up with.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Old school||
Just messin' around for about 20 minutes while I wait for a meeting to start... Gave it an old school feeling...
|43 weeks 4 days ago||Same thought here||
Same thought here. I would have never clicked that link if he didn't preview it like that. I was skimming the article as fast as possible trying to find the quote where Saban said that.
Well played, Brian. You bastard.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||That's no excuse||
That's no excuse. With the resources brought forth by the internet, budget is no excuse. Maybe I'm different, but if I were a football coach, I'd make the personal investment to learn about strength training. There are dozens of really good books available for under $30, not to mention training DVDs. The return on that investment is huge for both parties, the coach and the kids.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||That's sad that||
That's sad that one guy is limiting the potential of the athletes at your school by not allowing them to learn proper form to get everything out of their lifts and their efforts in weightlifting.
I get angry at the thought of the potential of lost power and force for your football players.
Maybe that special ed teacher needs a "special" visit.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed. In my opinion||
Agreed. In my opinion, lifters shouldn't be attempting a max lift until they have been lifting with proper form for at leaast 6 months. Anyone high schooler shouldn't care about their max lift until they've invested a good amount of time gaining strength. Who cares if you can squat 225 lbs for one rep. Squat for 6 months with a proper form and then give it a go. A max squat of 315+ for a high schooler is far more impressive, but that kind of strength only comes with a time investment of lifting with proper form.
It's sad that high school athletic departments don't focus on teaching high schoolers proper form before letting them into the gym to lift. They're just asking for injuries.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||The good Crossfitters||
The good Crossfitters stress form more than weight, but a quick search on Youtube for Crossfit fail will show that not all of Crossfit stresses form over weight.
Those are some impressive numbers though! Keep up the strong work!
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Starting Strength||
I'm currently in the middle of a linear progression program by Mark Rippetoe called Starting Strength. I lift 3 days a week and focus on powerlifts, Squat, Bench, Shoulder Press, Deadlift and Barbell Row. I love it. If you haven't looked into, I highly recommend it.
I'm 6'0/193lbs and just set a new PR for my Squat of 315lbsx2.
I love lifting. Right now I'm going for strength. Once I hit my strength goals, I'll flip over to maintenance mode of keeping my strength but improving body composition. A lot like the CrossFit posters, I spend a lot of time focusing on proper form as well.
I also really get into pairing my strength training with the Paleo diet. Any other paleo fans?
Also, I recommend reading 70sbig.com. It's one of my favorite weight lifting blogs.
Edit: Thought I'd embed my squat from today.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Squats||
With proper form, your knees should be fine with barbell squatting. I'd recommend looking into Mark Rippetoes instructions on how to properly squat. I have a bad knee from a quadding accident and I can squat all day without knee pain. Now putting bodyweight on my bad knee is a different story. I do any Tebowing without falling over in pain.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Squats||
If you have proper form, Squats shouldn't trash your knees. And of course, you should never go for big weights if you can't complete a rep with proper form.
