"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

i couldn't f_kin agree more. go blue.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||thank you||
thank you, thank you for negging me. neg me more please. i'm not going for a flame-out here, i just love getting negged. feels good.
and chunkums i didn't even write about my points, i don't care about points, i just wanted to give a +1 to someone, but couldn't, so I wrote in favor to them, liked their post. you may be more overly-sensitive than my wife. chill out and go back to M Football...
|3 years 48 weeks ago||+1 in spirit||
that is a great image for the star-rating overhype-aganza. i was just reading that book to my two boys the other night. i would +1'ya but the mods took away my voting privleges because I started a forum topic that was negative toward osu. anyways, +1 to you in spirit...
|3 years 48 weeks ago||i admit issues...||
i admit i have a hatred of that team (hence the f 's). i grew up in Ohio, my family on all sides are die-hard fOSU fans. i grew up from a very young age loving Michigan football. i was an outcast and picked-on until the age of 28 when I finally moved out of that state. I grew up blue in a sea of red, and i heard the shit all the time. i say F OSU....
|3 years 49 weeks ago||perhaps, but...||
first Quinton Washington is a mountain god Defensive Lineman, not so much a DE.
your forgetting Bryon Moore out of USC.... yes please.
what about Marvin Robinson's prison abs replacing Kovacs?
|3 years 49 weeks ago||i agree with Brian||
at this point i don't care who the replacement is as long as they come in and do one f_king scheme and do it f_king well. look at Iowa, they run a relatively simple defense and they excel at it. who's megamind idea is it to take a bunch of young inexperienced players and have them switching up schemes constantly when not one of them is working out sufficiently... i'm no defensive megamind but when I see Iowa do what they do, make it simple make it successful, i'm all in...

|3 years 49 weeks ago||pullin the scholly||
can they pull the scholly on Gibbons? Aren't scholly's one-year commitments from the school? I heard there is a move or petition to require schools to provide four-year scholly's but right now they are one-year limits.
i am not a big fan of any school renigging on a scholarship for a student athlete, but isn't that something that happens across the country? with Gibbons doing no more than keeping the bench from flying away would they not pull it in favor of giving it to a new recruit kicker?
|3 years 49 weeks ago||lack of safeties||
there is a lack of safeties in this which is concerning. (not to take anything away from Tim's excellent article, thank you)
there is info on two CB's, but no safeties. with Big Play Ray as our starting safety right now, and no positive news regarding Karlos Williams, HaHa, Avery Walls, Wayne Lyons... well, shucks, color me concerned about the future of this position.
I suppose Woolfolk could move back to a safety spot next year, but....
We need to be bringing in safety recruits like whoa...
and I agree about Crockett, we've got a stud down-hiller in Hopkins, lets focus on D!!!!
|3 years 49 weeks ago||fav play of the year...||
that stop by Big Play Ray is my favorite play of the year! I want not only a still shot of that, but I want a big ass poster, i want one of those big ass sticky posters you put on your walls... damn that was solid. a small true freshman coming up and sticking their leading rusher which weights 40-50 pounds more. dude, dude, i'm still geekin' out about it....
|3 years 50 weeks ago||GERG||
|3 years 50 weeks ago||all the more reason||
all the more reason to keep RR. I know the horse has been beaten, but come'on anti-RR's, do you not see the potential? he's doing this with a young football team. keep RR, fire Gerg, bring in a Pelini-type to compliment the offensive jugernaut that we have and will be developing. to me it is a no-brainer. not too many coaches step into a new situation and succeed off-the-bat, especially not to Michigan football standards. In RR I trust (except on defense)... In RR offense I trust...
|3 years 50 weeks ago||picked the wrong week...||
looks like i picked the wrong week to stop doing Strappado while listening to growl music...
well, back to it....
|3 years 50 weeks ago||i know it would be bad...||
i know it would further hurt our defense, but.... if I was James Rogers I would run run run away and hide in a dimly lit padded room somewhere remote in northern Canada.

|3 years 50 weeks ago||imagine if we had an average D...||
if we had an FBS average defense, along with our #4 ranked offense and #1 ranked rusher as our quarterback, imagine what our record and future would look like...
we will again someday field an average defense, and along with that average defense we will have the best offense in the country with upperclassmen running the show.
it will happen; just not as quickly as we'd like...
|3 years 50 weeks ago||imagine||
can you imagine if we had an FBS-average defense? our defense is ranked around 107 out of 120 teams, right? imagine if we fielded just an average defense ranked around 50th or 60th. with our #4 ranked offense and the leading rusher in the nation as our quarterback.
someday our D will be average again... its just a matter of time (and the right personnel on that side of the ball). around that time our offense will be full of upperclassmen. can you imagine? DB and RR are building something, just wait and see...
|3 years 50 weeks ago||well put...||
of all of the post-PSU calamity-writing this above post by Princeton is the best I've read.
kudos, your post should be read by all...
|3 years 50 weeks ago||please mail your tickets||
please mail your tickets to me. honestly if you are not going to use your season tickets remaining I would love to have them and cheer on the team. I have a PO Box. Just let me know... Go Blue...
|3 years 50 weeks ago||it was a collective||
a collective of all the Michigan fans welling up and it almost came out of his eyes... like mine....
|3 years 50 weeks ago||we are oregon...||
we are Oregon with with the worst defense in america.
it is clear what our problem is. its not a systemmatic issue. we continue to make our offense the best in the country, and our defense can only get better.
each year that goes by will get better, just not fast enough for what we want.
think of how young we are. i pray they keep RR...

if I could sir I would pos-bang you hard....
|3 years 50 weeks ago||GO IOWA||
that is all....
|3 years 51 weeks ago||oh that's old...||
that image with "oh! I see what you did there" is so damn tired....
|3 years 51 weeks ago||question||
would you rather have a third year Tate or a second year Gardner? Honestly, I would take a second year Gardner. His potential is greater, size and durability (hopefully) is better.
That being the case you have next year three year Denard, second year Devin, and moderate stud in the making freshman. Where does Tate come into this equation?
I know some of you may point to the Iowa game and Tate's comeback, and the few games he outright won for us as a freshman, and say Tate's the man. Tate is definately the man, but not in this system at this level over time. In my opinion...
|3 years 51 weeks ago||the reviews||
the reviews I have read of Dee (specifically from his Hello post) comment that he is not a home run threat, that he does not have home run or great speed. he is fast, but not "aboverage" as I recall. shifty, great hands, not overly fast....
that being said i am excited to see a backfield with Hopkins and Dee mixing it up. Imagine 2012 with Hopkins here 2.5 years and Dee here 1.5 years into the program... oh, and Denard too.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||weight room stud||
isn't QW the strongest in the weight room? i swear i heard that somewhere...
|4 years 3 days ago||every big ten game is||
every big ten game is RR's redemption and revenge game, unfortunately because he's only beaten three big ten teams in 2.5 years...
|4 years 2 weeks ago||it will be nice to see||
it will be nice to see the defense improving significantly each of the coming years, with the development of our youth and the recruitment of top-notch and ready players such as Bryon Moore, and other solid defensive recruits... we have some exciting years ahead of us gentlemen...
