I really didn't consider that, but that may be the answer!

It's not the current team, so it shouldn't be that big of a deal as far as locker room motivation.
Plus the title will fit again soon!

With respect to the victim in the York case. That situation was heated, it looked that way from the begining. I believe York's actions were definitely wrong, but there isn't any reason the victim should have been confident walking through that situation after smack talking was already done. Absolutely no way he should have done that with his hands in his pockets! Please be aware of your surroundings, and please learn to read situations!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This is the first year||
Since I've been watching the countdown to kickoffs that I've felt this drill was as intense as it should be. I have hoped that I was wrong about years past, but I didn't see the beast in the players that you would hope to see. This year I'm pleased with what I saw. Not going to go out and predict 14 victories, but I think with better play calling we can definitely expect 10+ victories!

I don't hate them!

I have cervical stenosis, and had to go through the same evaluations with the same outcome. Not many can imagine the range of emotions that goes through ones mind when this happens. I was unlikely to ever sniff an NFL locker room, but the sport I played and loved for 15 years of my life was now a memory. As many know, to play football at a high level, most have an attitude that it won't happen to me. When facing this, at least to me, was the first time I contemplated my own physical mortality. (my only serious injuries were continuous stingers) I can truly empathize with this young man, I hope he finds the next thing that he can live with the same enthusiasm.

The article meant to say 7.8 assists per game. But that had me baffled for a second as well!
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Hstorically we haven't||
Hstorically we haven't adjusted well on defense. That game plan arrogance has cost us several games, including 2006 OSU.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||OSU got smoked by Florida||
OSU got smoked by Florida because they tried to match them speed for speed. OSU really only played power football for one series, during that series they scored a TD and made it look simple. IMO, that was their downfall. Michigan would have been giving them the three yards and a cloud of dust treatment. Then of course going over top once they've brought the defense closer to stop the run.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Because||
Dave Brandon is a genius. He took a look back and found the point in time where the rift began. He figures that we can only right this ship by in a funky way playing them again. This was his only way of doing so, because time travel isn't sanctioned yet.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I disagree||
It's not a change in camera angle that makes it seem as though he caught up. He did catch up, but it was because of the drill that the kid in front of him changed to.

He took the cowardly way! If you want to fight someone, be a man and go toe to toe. That sucker punh stuff is B.S. Then to kick someone that is already incapacitated is down right disturbing. Hopefully his actions land him in jail, he will learn a lesson or two there.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Until||
We get back to what we all believe Michigan football should be. We shouldn't expect much respect from anyone. I wouldn't think we would crack the top 25.

The fourth time really convinced me of your point. Sorry when i'm sad, I'm a dick!
|21 weeks 3 days ago||F@#K!!||
This has been an great year! We played our hearts out. Too bad we ran up against the most athletic team in the nation. We definitely held our own. In the end, it was Kentucky's three point shooting that made the difference and not ours!

The offensive line takes care of keeping him from being dinged up.

Should do that for a living! You're pretty acurate!

What's your prediction this year? If your that good at it, go ahead and Raback it!

That was the best comb over this side of the Mississippi!

Is one of my favorites of all time!

Was very impressive to me. Most RBs have to learn to move there feet like that from college coaching. Kudos to his coaching as well.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||True||
But I have coached in Detroit at Frederick Douglass before they combined schools. ( the school that you went to when every other school kicked you out) and I have coached in Southfield. I've seen tough kids at both schools, and I've seen soft kids at both schools. I want smart kids on our team, I just want our coaches to get the ones that have chips on their shoulders.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||This is our team's problem||
It all comes down to toughness. Foote's comments about the ghetto were because he believes that kids coming from there are tougher. I have played and coached kids from both places, and I can say that it is definitely an individual thing. Michigan's issue as a team is culture of toughness hasn't been instituted. Every year when i look at the Michigan drill on countdown to kickoff, I am frustrated by the lack of what I perceive as an edge by the majority of players. I have been frustrated for years because teams have "out toughed" us. It starts with our coaches, we have to change the culture, because we have talent.

Has been more than a good coach, or he wouldn't be in the position he's in. He also was a coordinator for a National Championship Winning team. Racism is coming up because Mccombs comments really of it. That fact that you don't see that implies (at least to me) that you have your blinders on and don't want to believe that these things exist anymore.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Your reaction||
Was to a comment that alleged racism was behind Mccombs comments. Is it too far fetched to think that racism was the driving force behind this? Or are you just saying shut up about Texas? I'm just asking for clarification.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Bingo!||
Mccombs said that coach strong would be a qualified position coach, maybe a coordinator at a school like Texas. That's like coach speak for people that don't like others because of their skin.

I think the Browns are the only franchise, as a Lions fan, i can point to and say "At least we aren't that bad"
|35 weeks 2 days ago||The kids that are very aware||
The kids that are very aware of race are the children of people that make them very aware of race. I am a black man, and if i get mad a white person i don't say " fuck that white person" i say "fuck that person". There is a reason those feelings have been shut down and considered bad, they are! I prefer to learn about things that are outside of my norm. Doing that helps you to understand why some things are the way that they are. Understanding is the way to beat racism. Not coming down on you, but that is a peave of mine.
