Great rebound Walton. Maybe our best rebounder?!

Puerto Rico. That was bad.

I love you for not being ESPN3.

Tuesday night NCAA football is unnatural.

I usually extract information from insiders by scratching their belly until their leg uncontrollably kicks.
|2 days 11 hours ago||1st year player impacts||
Most freshmen are lost at this juncture. Let's be patient. I think we'll get sporadic production from the 1st year players. Doyle will be hot one night, while Donnal or Chatman will chip in more on other nights. Enjoy those moments of potential, just as we enjoyed glimpses of Irvin's talent last year, Levert the year before (remember that Caris didn't even see any PT until well into the season), Darius Morris, etc.. They'll learn the offense slowly. They'll learn their defensive obligations in due time. When February rolls around, we should have a few solid contributors from the first year class.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Nail. Coffin.||
After enduring a year when I thought we had already run out of nails for the coffin, we pull out one more by laying a turd against Maryland. Welcome to the B1G Maryland and Rutgers. You marked your territory well against us.
I had high hopes after Year 1 of the Hoke coaching regime. Sigh.
Nothing else to add.
|5 days 11 hours ago||We can do this!||
As I lay comfortably on my couch across the pond in Wisconsin with no chance in hell of getting to the game, WE CAN DO THIS! I have no doubt that 100000* strong will fill the seats of MIchigan Stadium.
*Margin of error about 20% for this estimate

For a second, I thought that Max had another muscle in his legs a la Amara Darboh's forearms.

Stay warm, my friends. Happy Friday.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Lake effect is local||
Go east of Marquette (Munising and beyond), northwest of Marquette (Huron Mtns. or Keweenaw) and the snow totals increase substantially. 250"+ has been broached many times over the past 10 years in these locations. But 72/250 is still a shit-ton of snow percentage for one storm (30%), so your point still stands!
|1 week 10 hours ago||Offensive mind?||
If Florida is hell-bent on hiring an offensive mind, why is Stoops supposedly in the mix? He's had great offenses at OU, but Stoops himself was a top-notch DC at K-State, Florida, etc. Maybe I'm missing something about his background. To his credit, he's hired some great OC's at Oklahoma.
|1 week 2 days ago||Next Yost reno idea||
Yost is space-challenged, so we have to think way outside the box. How about club-level plexiglass pods hanging directly over the ice? These pods, of course, will be mounted on tracks so you can follow the puck up and down the ice. Human body waste will be flash-frozen and ejected via high pressure flush toilets (a la passenger jets). Zambonis will be retrofitted to clean up said human waste, or waste can be floated down to the visitors penalty box. Privacy option will allow glass to be tinted so you can make mad, sweet love from the rafters of Yost Ice Arena.

This I can support. Unicyle and all.
|1 week 4 days ago||Hmmmm...||
...isn't this the type of sideline demeanor everyone wants Brady Hoke to display?!
Disclaimer: I'm not a Hoke apologist. I'm just sayin'.

Following Timaaaay's lead. I need to recoup my neg.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Born in '85...fan in '94 or '95?||
That's some weak shit, man. What the hell were you doing for 9 years? Waflling? Flip-flopping? Hoping that George Perles was the real deal in East Lansing? When I hang out with Michigan fans, I want their umbilical cords dripping with maize and blue effluence. None of this 9 year lag in true fandom.
That's how I roll.
EDIT: Sorry, Bee Train. Replied to the wrong poster...should've been directly responding to Blast Double above. I'm not calling you weak shit.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Thank you vets||
Most of us cannot fathom the sacrifice our men and women in service have made to protect us. A heartfelt "thank you" to all members of the service, past and present.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Food?||
For shame! They were allowed to bring food into the stadium? What a missed revenue opportunity. Those sandwich, Coke, and apple lunches could've netted an extra $20 per scout (adjusted for inflation).
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Transitive-ish property||
I attended the Maryland-Wisconsin game in Madison. Wisconsin throttled Maryland to tune of something like 52-7.
I then attended the Michigan-Northwestern slug fest. Michigan won 10-9.
Northwestern defeated Wisconsin.
Through the magic of transitive-like mathematical formulations:

Looks like the stadium got the t.p. treatment by Pontiac Northern seniors. How freaking depressing, although it arguably looks better without the dome.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This was probably discussed||
This was probably discussed ad nauseum elsewhere, but I was at the game and remember Gardner signaling to Funchess to get his ass in motion pronto. Funchess didn't budge. And then he finally budged many seconds after Gardner's signal. The ball was snapped, which prompted me to think "what a perfectly timed snap directly to Funchess for a surprise jet sweep". Much to my dismay, Funchess did not appear with the ball in his hands, and the ensuing pile up made me realize that I would have fought every fiber in my being to not shut the TV off if I was watching from the comfort of my home. What a crap play.
That being said, I think I enjoyed watching that game more in person compared to if I had been at home. It was a great Michigan turnout...true fans, to the core.

I hear ya. Feat of Clay has done nothing but drag this program down. Enough of him.

Contemplating a trip to Evanston tomorrow. True fan, I am.

Remember that magical winter weekend a few years when something like 10 4-stars committed? Poop.

I approve this message.
I also don't think we've adequately discussed Schiano as an option, though. Looking forward to that thread.

Readers Digest large print edition. Appropriate for the "older folks" who peruse this site.

JB's been on Thornton for a long time. Let's hope recruiting perserverance, recent PG success, and UM's style of play win out. He would be a perfect heir to the PG throne when Walton departs in a few years.
