"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.

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.

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

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.
|37 weeks 5 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.
|38 weeks 3 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.

I was at this game it was hard to see that much red!
|39 weeks 4 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.

Are you me? and if so what should I do tonight?
|39 weeks 6 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.
|39 weeks 6 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.
|41 weeks 2 days 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.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||I am talking the QB's||
I am talking the QB's specifically. Not the whole team.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||They looked good against||
They looked good against South Dakota State, Purdue and the Ilini. Not a glowing endorsement.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||Their best||
WR Bell didnt play against NW that might factor in as well
|41 weeks 3 days ago||Kellogg (the one who threw||
Kellogg (the one who threw the Hail Mary) is actually a walk on senior.
|41 weeks 3 days 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
|41 weeks 3 days 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.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||Nebraska||
fans are not giving their team much of a chance in Ann Arbor...for what it is worth.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||Is Northwestern really a road||
Is Northwestern really a road game? I mean in reality there will be probably be a 50/50 split.

Horse dead beat it 9-3
|41 weeks 3 days ago||I was a reader long before I||
I was a reader long before I actually had an account and I usually refrain from commenting for the most part. The knowldge and insight on this board was fantastic in 2010 it seems to me that ever since Bacon mentioned the blog in "3 and Out" things have gone to shit.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||I absolutely expected a||
I absolutely expected a better effort and I think the team looks poorly coached in a lot if areas. I don't know enough football to be too critical however.
I guess I am just not as doom and gloom as others. I think Borges and Funk better have the resumes ready to go because if this board is any indication the pressure has to be building in DB's office.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||I don't know if it is just||
I don't know if it is just the nature of internet board posting football fans or something else but we seem so reactionary. This board was full of 9-3 and 8-4 predictions preseason. Concern ranged from o and d line, lack of depth at WR, secondary questions etc. all of which have come to fruition to some degree (some way more than others).
Prior to the State game most perdictions were for State because of a superior defense and the teams tendency to turn the ball over. Again we saw that come to fruition yesterday.
So I guess I am surprised to see us lose our shit when things don't go our way. I think the problem with this board is it has become way to popular for its own good. Even the guy who sits next to me and smells like he rolled around in monkey feces before each game is a regular contributor to this board (at least that is what he claims). I don't think he honestly knows the difference between a running and passing play.
Personally I think we win the next 3 games and Ohio being Ohio who knows...

Figured this would be the reaction I will wait until the board in general sobers up!!! See you all Thursday

What is the word on Dileo is he playing? I might have missed it.

The research is continually showing the pre-excercise static stretching is worthless. Great for after work but not before. FIFA 11+ is a warm up specifically designed to prevent ACL injuries in soccer players and it doesn't include any traditional stretches. The numbers coming back on this warm-up have been excellent.
