It's not like Hoke would say, "Welll Fred Jackson's gonna retire. You know he coached Tom Harmon."
I'd think he'd leave it to the man to annouce himself.

I like it.

Brian knows how I feel about him. I check the site 99% of days.
And I totally see where he's coming from, lately I get more anxious reading half of the comments on here. I can't wait for whatever changes he has in mind (even if it means banning me)

Thanks anonymous dog ;-)
I'm actually kind of excited to see what he's got 'cooked' up (swidt)

You make a good point in that my idea's probably unnecessary overkill
|1 year 52 weeks ago||I just felt that when someone||
I just felt that when someone represents themself instead of an avatar they're less likely to be an asshat. Obviously people can be anonymous and be normal (see: you) but I feel that's not always the case.
|1 year 52 weeks ago||Even though I'm most likely wrong||
My bet is that accounts will be tied to FB.
No more anonimity, and once you're banned you're pretty much banned.
Like I said, I'm probably wrong but this would almost make sense.

I was going to say something similar, only to make a "FIRE BORGES" sign instead. Although I like your idea better.
Wait... why not both?!
|2 years 5 days ago||Well fuck shit damn||
Thanks for the much needed laugh. This is why I love this site.
|2 years 5 days ago||Fearing the worst for what||
Fearing the worst for what you love most and attempting to mentally prepre yourself for what most people would say will be a painful experience is a natural defense mechanism.
That's probably caring a little too much (although don't tell me my love is wrong) - it's the opposite of fairweather.
Everyone deals with pain differently - let's not judge different reactions when it's all coming from the same place.
Edit: I was in the crowd back in '95 chanting "Eddie Who" (I was in middle school) - and right now I wish I was still that kid who thought Michigan would win no matter what and anyone who said otherwise was crazy (pours out a little for lost innocence)

Objectively, I couldn't agree with you more.
At the same time though, I can understand the feelings of those who wouldn't want to watch Old Yella - their beloved childhood friend - take a shotgun blast to the head.
Also, it's kind of a classic ogre's deal here: lose, and we lose to Ohio. Win, and Borges probably keeps his job for what we can reasonably expect to be another mediocre season. I'm not saying I want us to lose - I'm just saying I can understand, which makes me even sicker.
Once again, I'll be glued to my live stream next week (need to be in bed for this) but I'm not going to get self-rightous on people who are so numb inside that they're saying things they'd thought they'd never say.

It would have gotten buried elsewhere but at this point and current state of the board - like it really matters:
My biggest pet peev right now? People throwing around the term "fairweather fan" at guys who are extremely passionate about this team yet are dissatisfied with the product on the field.
If we didn't care about this team we wouldn't be posting on this board right now. "Support" for Michigan football doesn't mean we blindly cheer for mediorcrity (to put it kindly). If you feel like you want to vomit because this offense is so bad... that's the opposite of jumping off the bandwagon - that's getting sick of the bandwagon breaking down while you refuse to leave.
Yes, I hate Ohio and my soul will be tied to this team next weekend - but it pains me to see what this offense has become and while I'll always support Michigan, I can't support the coach (Al Borges) I feel is mainly responsible for the team I love being in the shitter.
No one would post a word here who didn't love the Maize and Blue more than most things in life - let's stop taking our frustrations out on each other.

|2 years 13 weeks ago||My guess on the RB depth is||
My guess on the RB depth is that the coaches are listing them in order of who would be best to play in the upcoming game.
One of the main things the coaches want is consistency. Right now the freshmen don't know the offense well enough to be as consistent as the upperclassmen, and can't be trusted in a game situation just yet. I'd be surprised if their names didn't hop up the depth chart as the season progressed.
I'll go with Stribling as my pick, passing Taylor by midseason and being a solid B1G corner. Nothing against Taylor. I hope he can hold his spot, but you made me guess.

All I really want to know about CMU is how closely their O and D resembles the Irish to know whether or not we'll get some good practice in for UTLII
|2 years 14 weeks ago||1st team o-line seemed to||
1st team o-line seemed to hold its own against the 1st team defense.
2nd team defense, one the otherhand, seems a step ahead of 2nd team o-line. This actually hold pretty well with what Mattison has been saying about the D being two deep at almost every position (Joe Reynolds still owned the 2nd team secondary).

Grady was at Skeeps a lot. Word o n Green is he's a very hard worker.

Very well said. What I wouldn't give for a few days just to follow that man around.
As a coach myself who's studied as many coaches as I could (Bo's Lasting Lessons rocked my world), Brady Hoke is something special. Talk about an example that we'd be lucky to live up to. All of us, from we who take pride in this team, to those who actually get to be mentored by him, are really fortunate that he's our coach.
Edit: PS I was skeptical at his hiring, man, crow never tasted so good

I mean everyone in the world punches women in the face, steals from you, steals from me.
