That makes 4 transfers and one early to nba for "us" nevada (my kids go there and I played b side rugby there). I'm not big on chasing off the coach but when so many players all bail at once...

Oh boy! Simplified Manball! My favorite, I can't wait. Smash mouth old school is the perfect compliment to our innovation resistant backward looking university! Perfect fit. We can lead by staying put... I hope we punt on 3rd downs again too
|1 week 6 days ago||go blue||
I played with u nevada for two years recently. Davy still around ? He let me come and practice with um 3 yrs ago, fun. My local just returned from philly..he also practiced and played b side and ref'd while he was there. I love rugby culture and miss it (I'm 55 ...). Go blue!

Sorry I can't help it... even GERG is kicking ass at Texas!
|21 weeks 1 day ago||the team?||
You've got to be kidding. You and 90% of the schmoe's on this site totally turned against the team 4 yrs ago. David Brandon gave you what you wanted , ill conceived, utterly predictable Lloyd Carr ball (Bo had the triple option, that was NOT conservative!). Well I hope you are enjoying MANBALL. Have you ever heard of the Catholic doctrine of Purgatory? PS FU David Brandon. (Note best season lately was RichRod's seniors....).

42-16. 'nuff said (insert insult to yourself here...you know who you are...most of you...) . PS FU David Brandon.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||arizona||
plays WSU this week. Should be no contest except I like Mike Leach as he is a fellow rugger (where did all this passing nonsense come from?). But week after...Oregon...if RR stays with a touchdown or two of them I'm going all troll-like on you (previously...like before Lloyd Carr...) pampered lunatic unrealistic entitled AH's. Hope you like what David Brandon gave you...what you wanted. Manball. QB U. Utterly predictable football predicated on having the absolute best players on the field (Stanford and 'bama are doing it. But what if you play a team not only with the best players but the best scheme? like you know who coming soon...). Any quality coach now would give M no more than a chuckle! To be "leaders and best" first you have to be leaders. How about close mgoblog to non UM grad's!!!!

arrrrrrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! help me I'm choking.... arrggggghhhhhh.
I F-ing hate being a sports fan. usually.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||3rd half||
right. real men drink with those they try to kill. really. It's only civilized.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||ummmm, I lateralled and that didn't work out so well||
got ball. turned and passed quickly. guys head (tackler) broke my cheekbone after I passed.... like a QB getting drilled after passing...happens all the time. It's fun to blast people you know got rid of the ball but you won't get into trouble. We're taught to do it.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||size, speed, overall athleticism||
My son and I play both. Rugby never stops for breathers (i.e. "plays") so especially the forwards never stop playing, pushing, running, tackling for 40 min. halfs (backline players get a little standing around time). Rugby rules help a little in avoiding injury, I felt me at 145lb and 52yr old, could survive better in rugby (college b side) than men's full contact flag football (full contact downfield blocking...). No need to stop people from getting a first down, just slow them down or let them fall over you.... No blocking allowed at all (got a dislocated shoulder from kickoff return in flag...) . As a wing I wouldn't normally get flattened after receiving a lateral (but there are "hospital passes"...) but at same time I could easily get flattened after catching an opposing teams kick (no forward passes). I know wide receivers and corners need to run run run, but on a rugby team everyone has to run, like all the time. My bet is rugby players have better aerobic conditioning. As to strength I'm sure football linemen have to be strong (my son is 140lb fullback but can push back 250lb liinemen) but so do scrum forwards. I think my son and I have more chance to be injured in american football but almost for sure are in better condition, strength, speed, and aerobic , by playing rugby. I will say I like watching football more than rugby (like chess), but like playing rugby more than football (moment to moment thrill. free flowing violence. unpredictable). I hope my son gives up football after HS but continues with rugby.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||taking the Buckeyes||
by "taking the Buckeyes" you mean up our rears right? We've lost the last 7 straight if you haven't noticed and four of those were Lloyd's... oh yeah, and THEY are not nationally competitive either!!!!
|2 years 21 weeks ago||I love the team||
oh gorgeous Borges allow us not to err in passing to those unworthy to intercept us and deliver us from I formation man ball runs which lead us to oblivion. Most holy Mattison we beseech thee to change the defensive fronts often and cast the OSU offense into hell (why not?). Most Hokey Hoke please do not impede the efforts of we who seek to win. And may all wake up to the reality of Modern Ball competition in the Big Ten (ie Urban Meyer) Amen.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||rugby||
If you play rugby you should wear a legal 3/8" padded vest. They are optional but most of the guys I play play with wear them in games...usually AFTER they have injured their shoulder. I took up rugby at age 50 and played two years with Nevada (UNR, collegiate, on B side). Fun, but dislocated shoulder, fractured elbow, broken collarbone. I can honestly say however that once I knew what I was doing more, the potential for injury went way down.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||still in therapy over this...||
pretty sure my hated pompous ex CEO DB fired RR because he stuck up for GERG and blamed instead, whatever M hating god circumstances led us to field 8 freshmen on defense 3 yrs into the RR transition. CEO's hate being faced... RR Not being given any GD support but instead "the process" probably also factored into the facing. I still don't know if GERG is as bad as some think. I tend to trust Brian however so I guess he did suck. But EIGHT f-ing freshmen? I've played rugby with college kids last two years, freshmen are babies compared to upperclassmen...not even full grown. Impossible situation for any D coord...
I know this...RR will land on his feet at a top program and field NATIONALLY competitive teams. We won't. MANBALL? Really? West coast offensive? arrrrrrggggghhhhhh!!!!
|3 years 3 weeks ago||well, except when Gerald Ford was playing....||
a long time ago...
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Mr. Brandon||
Is playing for Bo and getting along with the pizza king really all it takes to become AD? What was your degree in? Can you explain where you learned "the process"? Don't you care that Michigan has never had a nationally competitive football program?
