“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”

Was not prepared for a posbang that may have already fizzled out before 6:30 a.m. CT. Has this fizzled out? Somebody prove me wrong, dammit!
Happy Friday to all.

There's no known antidote for snark pollution on this site. I'll also admit to contributing to the inflated snark effluence that is emitted in some threads. Some threads deserve it, other threads suffer because of it.

I wear only a jockstrap when I step untouched into the end zone after the best offensive play ever designed for a 4th and goal from the 1/2 yard line.

Defensive line depth is finally reaping benefits. I know Penn State's OL is shaky, but it was good to see some of the 2- and 3-deep DL guys making noise with the normal rotations all shot to hell due to injuries.

I thought Stribling made the great play on the fake punt. Only today I discovered that it might have been McCray. I want to know who I'm cheering for, dammit, so please give me numbers that I can discern. This isn't too much to ask for, is it?
Overall, I'm kind of at the "whateva" stage with specialz uniformz. We'll probably go all-out Purdue some day, and I probably won't go ballistic since my rage is spent. I just want numbers that I can read.

Weis' next HC contract will include a mandatory CPAP clause. Charlie must wear a CPAP to all meetings and while on the sideline.

How can I sign up for this career trajectory? I'll immediately buy the "Charlie Weis' 7-Steps for Retirement Security" book when it's available on Amazon.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Inexcusable||
Like many, I was pleading, PLEADING, pleading for Morris to get pulled after the ankle injury. There was nothing left to prove. But the late hit episode was the final straw. A semi-national TV audience saw him wobble, ask for help from Braden, etc. SOMEONE on the sideline had to see it. He needed to be pulled ASAP after that play.
I think the current state of Michigan football was captured a few plays after Morris was finally pulled. Gardner gets his helmet pulled off during a tackle and has to leave the field for a play. The ABC camera pans to Morris on the sideline, then quickly focus on Bellomy. Bellomy is the presumed backup at this point, but HE CAN'T FIND HIS F'ING HELMET!!! Amazing. I think he tried on two helmets before Morris is forced to go back in and hand the ball off. That was the pure definition of a sideline clusterf#@ck.
This was a sad, sad game punctuated by an injured football player that should've been nowhere near the field for at least a series before he was potentially concussed on a brutal late hit. I'm nightmarishly saddened by our program right now.

I present to you Kiki Vandeweghe (SP?) in his early 80's Denver Nuggets uni featuring horrifying stripes + unbelievably horrifying color scheme.
Also, horizontal stripes totally add like 10 pounds to your figure.

I had no idea that we was gainfully employed by SJSU. He can always hang his hat on those Denver Broncos golden years. I guess this is how he gets any jobs after his UM - and Texas - tenure?

I said this in another post, but I mostly DVR games due to youth football and parenting conflicts on many Saturdays. I'll continue recording every Michigan game or watching them live if it fits my schedule. Every game. I'll still do it religiously. But I'm sadly not excited about it any longer. Every Saturday from 1976-ish through the mid to late 00's, I was excited about Saturday. UM football was THE defining moment of my fall weekends. I don't feel that way any longer. But I'll still watch, mostly on DVR (the DVR bonus is fast-forwarding through stupid commercials and watching at a slightly faster pace when Notre Dame is up 31-0). It's too engrained in my soul to not watch UM football. I endured RR's year 1, so I can damn well endure anything else thrown my way. But I'm just not excited about game day any longer.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||So confused||
I'm so confused and conflicted. At times, it feels like this offense is better than last year because we have some semblance of a running game and have eliminated the incessant poor damn <insert RB name> TFL running plays. But the scoreboard doesn't reflect this fact at all. I want to believe this offense is better. But the scoreboard says otherwise.
