Pleasant surprise seeing this thread. I'll be in the Big Easy this weekend as well. Cooter Browns in M gear bound..
|1 week 1 day ago||Whatever||
Whatever one thinks of Mr. Forde or his motivations; regardless, as to the validity of the definitive term, 'Dumpster Fire'; it must be acknowledged that his final statement is resolute truth. 'The only thing worse than Michigan letting Hoke go would be keeping him.' Rather poignant, I thought.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Michigan Needs Leaders||
Michigan needs leaders that will embrace the truth.
Jim Harbaugh told the truth and there was a faction that condemned him for it.
Michigan football is mediocre at best. Truth.
In order to truly become elite in football, the truth must be welcomed. Ohio State has an AD light years ahead of anything Michigan has known.
Thad Matta and Urban Meyer. Undisputed excellence; elite coaches.
Michigan did not approach Urban Meyer. Jim Harbaugh. Les Miles.
Excellence was not even on the radar, 'last coaching search.
People fear Jim Harbaugh because he will speak the truth. There is a lot of hubris that needs to be exposed and burned.
Jim Harbaugh will do it.
As well as bring smash mouth, kick Dantonio and Urban Meyer ass football.
Question is, is Michigan ready to take it's head out of the sand and see itself as it really is.
It is high time to embrace the truth.
Warde Manual and Jim Harbaugh.
Please come here and fix this shit.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yes, That||
Yes, that is the Michigan difference that must be avoided if you really expect to be elite.
Self limitation. Rationalization that eliminates brilliance as an option. 'We can do it with less', 'we don't need a big name' , why spend top dollar, that's not the Michigan way', etc.
Please just stop with the self limiting, rationalization.
Michigan has been an ostrich with it's head in the sand and it's ass exposed.
Just do the brilliant thing, period.
Jim MF Harbaugh.

Kool aid. After a bit of a hiatus, I might add.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||President Schlissel||
Please make a very smart choice. Not Michigan smart, just smart.
Smart like Urban Meyer or Brian Kelly. Smart like a no brainer. Smart like historically, check mate smart.
Anything less than a home run continues the culture.

Umm..well..Mark, Mark you know we talked..but for everybody else..
I would like to sincerely state, "I am so sorry my team came in your house and displayed an act of agression before the game. We don't coach that crap."
'Just when you thought there was no more humiliation to endure...

|5 weeks 11 hours ago||Where Are The Points||
Rules and how the up/down voting works?
I noticed that when I am negged, I lose points. Yet, I see others get negged and they do not.
Am I that disliked here or am I just uninformed?

To see Denard's career blossoming.

Denard become an effective pro RB.

First off, it is a fact that MSU got more in state highly ranked recruits than RichRod.
Secondly, I never said none of the midgets contributed.
Third, I do mind. I'm not taking .02 seconds giving you any type of list. If you disagree with my opinion, that is quite alright with me.
You have no idea what my 'ilk' is. You can only assume. If you have a high opinion of Rich Rod and his regime here, then that is your opinion and I won't attack it.
Last, Rich Rod is responsible for his performance here. Or non-performance.
The dysfunction at Michigan runs deep. Of that, there is no doubt.
|7 weeks 9 hours ago||Rich Rodriguez||
Rich Rodriguez needs to shut the hell up about Michigan.
If he hadn't been so damned zeroed in on recruiting the same style players he did at WV, MSU couldn't have gotten where they are now.
He routinely passed up state of Michigan blue chippers while searching far and wide for every midget he could find with fast twitch genes.
His recruiting here never embraced going after the best. He continued to search for overlooked three stars like the girl who knew she didn't belong at the ball..
He sucked here. Period.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||As I Brace..||
As I brace to be negged to oblivion, being painfully aware of the ignorance (lack of knowledge) prevalent in America concerning the history of 'race'; I posit: Race is a false concept. A social construct relatively new to human beings. The term, 'white people' did not exist prior to the late 1600's (look it up for yourself). Prior to that, people were referred to by their ethnic group (Italian, Serbian, Yoruba, Moor, Egyptian, Greek, etc). In fact, colonial America was rife with mulatto children in the 1500 and 1600's prior to the advent of 'race' and the separation movement. Laws were enacted in the 1650's to stop interracial marriage. It took several of these laws before the people accepted the concept as anything more than absurd. Now, we act as if this is reality.
Secondly, I think what the executive was pointing out is that, like with Kentucky, the average 6'6" NBA player can jump out of the gym and has athleticism to spare. Nik is a superb athlete, but he cannot sky like Kentucky's players of similar size. Players with heritage from different geographical regions of the planet have different physical attributes. As far as I am concerned, Nik is the truth. But he is no Michael Jordan. Different skillsets.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Completely||
Completely hear your point ,cigol. I just cannot muster the enthusiasm to absorb the amount of pre-season material that I have for the last 30 years. I am like a deflated balloon. Until this team shows signs of being for real again, my broken heart is in protect mode.
These coaches have a lot to prove.

This article really, really is good. You outdid yourself Brian. Salute.
|34 weeks 3 days ago||Maximum Effort||
Maximum effort, Michigan Basketball. Thank you for a fantastic season. You were expected to be a rebuilding team, yet you reached deep down and gave us your hearts. Thank you, indeed.

Tennessee game turned out to be a perfect prep for Louisville. The sloppiness against pressure D provides JB plenty of teaching points to prepare for Louisville's pressure.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Your Friend||
Your friend in Chicago sounds like an advanced soul. He is not me. However, we have the same father.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Indeed||
Indeed you are. Well said. The key for GRIII is between his own ears. When he believes he is a beast, it will manifest.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Come on Over||
Come on over. Everyone is welcome. Only the harmonics of love exist at the source, though. Gratitude. Acceptance. Lack of judgement. Etc. The realization that all religions are harmonics of the one source is required, however. The source is pure energy. The strongest harmonic of which is love.
BTW, Dude, you rock. I hadn't seen your post about GRIII until I had submitted mine. The fact that they are synchronous is way cool.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Precisely||
Precisely the reason I don't give a damn what anyone thinks about me or my opinions in this space (or otherwise). Really? Some arse actually downvoted a 100% for Michigan post? So here is the deal. Kenpom does not qualify for my pantheon of Gods. You worship him if you wish. I worship only the source of my consciousness. And the Source says Michigan by 15. LOL.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Cuonzo Martin||
Cuonzo Martin sees it. Minnesota's coach (lil' Pitino) sees it. This team has five legitimate future NBA players. Stauskas, GRIII, Irvin, Caris, Walton. Tennessee has not played anyone with this skill level. So said their very own coach. Go Blue!
|34 weeks 5 days ago||XXX||
XXX. Fuck Kenpom. Fuck Tennessee. Fuck fear. We are Big Ten Champions. We are Michigan. We come to play hard. GRIII finally finds his inner beast. He is the X factor. Michigan blows out Tennessee. Michigan 87-72. Hail to the Victors. Bring on whichever Kentucky team. Believe what you have seen. This team is legit.

Michigan needs your mentality. You are a champion. Come become a legend by leading this squad.

How about all the players playing with poor fundamentals. Would that qualify as evidence?

I Like The Way You Think BornInAA.
It's like raising kids. One parent says to the teen rebel, 'getting good grades and doing all your assignments will get you far in life'. And the kid half way listens.
The other parent says, 'No missed assignments. Not even a damn pop quiz. You miss one assignment, ever..and the cell phone is mine. The video games are mine. The only thing you will do is eat, sleep and school. Plus, I want weekly progress reports until I feel better about this. Missed assignments are the worst thing you can do in my damn house. Not having it. And then they really mean it and enact the promised punishment.
You get what you accept..
