OP, you clearly need to understand how things work here.
1) Original opinions are not valued. Essentially find the posters with >5000 points and paraphrase their comments. You should be fine.
2) Posts with kittens, Hoke/Borges popular phrases like "boo-boo" and pictures of Hoke pointing all "add value". Anything resembling a criticism will be neg'd.

So an OSU fan posts a perfectly reasonable comment, and it gets neg'd. Seems like you guys just made his point for him...
We love to make fun of the trash that gets posted on the RCMB, although the fact that we discourage opinions that differ from that of the overall board is just as bad, if not worse.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||I believe you're referring to||
I believe you're referring to the "Inverted veer" that Cam Newton used to terrorize the SEC for a year.
We also ran it quite a bit last year, most notably against OSU I believe. Denard's long touchdown run, and second touchdown run near the goalline were both off the inverted veer.

I'm not sure why everyone responds to any RR post with "We have a great team... Hoke is the coach now... enjoy the #1 recruiting class etc etc..."
Appreciating the talent and success we're currently experiencing, and debating the RR situation are not mutually exclusive. If you truly don't want to hear/talk about him, don't bother visiting the thread.
I appreciate these threads, because I still enjoy hearing any news that comes out of his time here, and the reaction and insight of those willing to share on the board. So please don't discourage these discussions, because I (along with may others I believe) still find the topic interesting.

Love the run by Hayes at the end.

Tried yours denarded - unfortunately still the old rosters.

Your sophomore year is by far the most important in regards to GPA. You'll begin internship recruiting with only 2 semesters of credits taken into account in your GPA, so your sophomore year classes will be extremely competitive.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Are we overrating||
Are we overrating Ross/RJS/Wilson a bit? I understand Ross is somewhat small for an NFL linebacker, and rivals rates gears their recruiting a bit towards NFL potential, although RJS and Wilson seem to have at least adequate size as an NFL prospect.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Who would you rather have||
Who would you rather have this year? You could also argue his numbers would be better if he had a better offensive line/receivers on his team. Argument goes both ways.

I was just about to log onto mgo expecting some observations regarding Griffin tearing it up.
Best college football player I've seen this year without a doubt.

Hate to say it, but I almost wish it were true. Seeing him go to MSU would be extremely painful.

Did you update the player ratings as well?
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Lets be honest...||
As optimistic as I am that the offense will be effective this year, I think the majority of us would be much more confident in the offense if we were continuing to run a spread scheme. I understand that the pro set should keep Denard relatively healthy, although I think saying that changing the offense is a great idea sounds like us trying to convince ourselves..
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Huge fan of Hayes. Also love||
Huge fan of Hayes. Also love the Breaston comparison. Hayes seems to be one of those guys that you have to find 10-15 "touches" per game for, whether they came on end arounds, carries, screens, or returns. Looking forward to watching Borges find ways to utilize him.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Is there a consensus that||
Is there a consensus that Smith is our 3rd down back against Western? I was really hoping Hayes would be that guy, as I have very high hopes for him.

And also very undersized, assuming RVB is in fact 290, Black is around 260 and Roh is 270
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Yes, I'm aware of his record.||
Yes, I'm aware of his record. He won 3, 5, and 7 games. When Rich was hired I expected him to struggle initially, but I was willing to experience a few down years in order to see a team with brilliant offensive schemes and michigan caliber players. Clearly we saw the very beginnings of this plan last year on the offensive end. We also returned 10 starters this year, so clearly the offensive performance was beginning to take place.
I also envisioned an average Michigan defense, which I think we would have seen this year. One of the best offenses in CFB, with an average big ten defense IMO would be a formula that would tear through the Big 10 year after year.
Obviously we didn't have an average defense last year, however my thinking is that it's must easier to improve special teams and defense to an average level, than improve an offense from above average to elite.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Who are we to judge whether||
Who are we to judge whether RR did or didn't do enough to stay? Obviously Brandon didn't think he had done enough to stay. However, if we had a different AD, and RR is still here, did he suddenly do enough to stay?
I understand its a slightly pointeless thing to debate but to say that he "obviously didn't do enough to stay" is a very bold statement IMO.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||I love this board, but I||
I love this board, but I don't understand why any pro RR people get downvoted and anti RR people get upvoted. I understand this wasn't meant to be a "debate RR" thread, but if someone says "Hoke is an upgrade, heres why..." you're asking for someone to disagree with you. I think both posts are fine, however the response to Hoke being an upgrade gets downvoted, and the "Hoke is an upgrade" post gets upvoted.
People have differing opinions. Always will. It's not a sin to believe that RR is/was was a better coach. Rooting for Hoke to fail would be, however I don't think any RR supporters are rooting against Hoke in any way.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||I find it very interesting to||
I find it very interesting to hear Rich speak regarding the current Michigan team. One can see that he has done his best to move on, although I think its pretty clear that he really wanted that 4th year. Very competitive guy

"Hoke = Upgrade."
We'll agree to disagree.

Please be true. Kid is extremely explosive and would be a playmaker from day one.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Basically feels like NCAA 11||
Basically feels like NCAA 11 with minor tweaks. The tackling system is a little better, zone defense makes passing a little tougher, and shotgun running is more realistic.
Also, the quarterback doesn't have that stupid looking stance when he's in the shotun anymore, which makes me extremely happy. (I know, pathetic)
On another note, would any PS3 users like to create an online dynasty? I don't have the time to run it, but I would love to participate.

Not getting the game until probably tomorrow, but psn is RKLamb16. I would vote for format 2
