|3 hours 6 min ago||As a relatively new poster I||
As a relatively new poster I guess I will have to file "don't poke a little fun at Brady's vocabulary" away for future reference to avoid getting negged.
I guess I should consider myself fortunate though I was going to post about my personal policitcal/religious views and why they are right and why we should/shouldnt have fired RR.
I am a big fan of Hoke and believe he will eventually bring us great things just having a little fun.
|13 hours 40 min ago||Suppose you fellas are right||
Suppose you fellas are right probably a low blow. I guess I was more referring to his fondness of certain phrases.
|14 hours 22 min ago||I like Hoke's regular guy||
I like Hoke's regular guy talk it is actually refreshing. That being said I just don't think he would be very good at faking something. Some dudes got it some dudes don't.
|14 hours 38 min ago||First off Brady and co are||
First off Brady and co are going to be positive no matter the situation that is their style it is hard for me to see that as a product of spouting the party line.
|1 day 2 hours ago||They are doing amazing things||
They are doing amazing things with ACL rehabs these days. He will be ready to go by fall camp. Good luck young man, quick recovery.
|1 day 3 hours ago||I dont think||
coaches go into meetings with the press with a lot of hidden motivations I don't think Nuss says "ok I really got to temper expectations here". I think it is obvious (and has been under Hoke) that there is not going to be any real information provided in these pressers.
I just think we over analyze these things way too much at times. This is a necessary evil for them and they try to get through as quickly and painlessly as possible.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I don't understand why this||
I don't understand why this looks like desperation to people, teams are a lot like people in the sense that every one is different. This could be Hoke's way of incorporating a new style of leadership. Doing something just because it has always been done that way is bad business.
Successful coaches are constantly trying new things, some pay off others flop. But it is the willingness to try these things that often seperate teams from each other.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Somebody put it||
like this in a previous thread, it is a cleansing for this program an exorcism of sorts and I like that perception.
I think we can all agree that the trouble we have seen the last 7-8 years started with The Horror. Maybe we have to cast out the demons of our dark past to move into the light of our future.
No? well fuck...
|1 day 23 hours ago||I said this in another thread||
but if it were me I would deemphasize the importance of captains. If you are truly a leader you don't need the title and it sends the message that everybody is expected to lead some way while in the program. Never been a big captain guy. I like the idea.
|5 days 14 hours ago||As a coach (soccer)...||
I decided to deemphasize captains this year I stressed I wanted all of my squad to participate as leaders and not rely on one or two guys. Of course for practical reasons someone had to call the coin toss but other than that our coaching staff decide to not focus so much on individual leaders and instead encourage all to be.

Right fucking now before he gets home

There are so many lesser message board replies for this but I will save my childlike behavior for the possibility that Borges is not fired
|38 weeks 2 days ago||I live in place that is a||
I live in place that is a geographical oddity... 17 hours from anywhere. I always thought Denver would be a good place for a bowl.

Why is the schedule so much harder I guess I don't see it.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Nebraska fans are sick of him||
Nebraska fans are sick of him too. He kind took a half swing at a ref today and called a fake punt that was all Jim Schwartzish.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Despite the teams current||
Despite the teams current form I am a believer that Michigan needs the football team too much to stay medicore in the long term we will rise again...
That being said I hate Ohio with a passion that burns deep within me. I teach and coach at a school with red as the primary color and refuse to wear even a smidgen of red during this week.
|40 weeks 18 hours ago||I was at this game it was||
I was at this game it was hard to see that much red!
|40 weeks 2 days ago||I was not nearly has negative||
I was not nearly has negative about Borges as most people were after Penn St but the last few weeks especially the Nebraska game has sold me that there might have to be a change.
A win like last nights can galvanize a team though, an us against the world type mentality. They could win the next two I don't really care about the bowl but if they beat Iowa and Ohio I think people will have to reconsider their thoughts on the staff.
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Are you me? and if so what||
Are you me? and if so what should I do tonight?
|40 weeks 4 days ago||I booed for the first time||
I booed for the first time Saturday. My frustrations of the last 6-7 years came to a boil Saturday night needless to say I acted like a complete jackass.
Felt horrible the next morning couldn't tell whether it was because of my behavior or the booze.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||On the 12 hour drive back to||
On the 12 hour drive back to Nebraska on Sunday my buddy (who is a Nebraska fan) asked me what it would take to salvage the season at this point.
After thinking about it I said I think we have to go at 1-1 against Iowa/NW and then beat Ohio.
Then I got gut punched by a Hand (see what I did there).
But I woke up this morning still feeling that a 1-1 against Iowa/NW and then a win against Ohio and things are looking up.
Not optomistic, doubt is happens but one can hope.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||I don't think their defensive||
I don't think their defensive line is good. I hae watched them quite a bit this year. They really have issues tackling and any quarterback with any running ability gives them fits. If it is a straight dropback and throw maybe. The LB's are not good and and they can't do what MSU did.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||I am talking the QB's||
I am talking the QB's specifically. Not the whole team.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||They looked good against||
They looked good against South Dakota State, Purdue and the Ilini. Not a glowing endorsement.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||Their best||
WR Bell didnt play against NW that might factor in as well
|42 weeks 1 day ago||Kellogg (the one who threw||
Kellogg (the one who threw the Hail Mary) is actually a walk on senior.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||Agree with you there I think||
Agree with you there I think more fans were saying that taking his injuries into account that either one could have performed better. Kellogg is huge he is not moving but is probably a better thrower. Armstrong can run but has had trouble throwing should be an advantage to M either way
|42 weeks 1 day ago||I was going to say the same||
I was going to say the same thing in fact most Nebraska fans I know believe that if either one of those two play instead of Martinez Nebraska wins at Minny I am not believing that but his replacements might be better.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||Nebraska||
fans are not giving their team much of a chance in Ann Arbor...for what it is worth.
