|5 years 12 weeks ago||Thanks for looking out. I||
Thanks for looking out. I mean I personally could care less if I had a million points or negative one million. Not the end of the world. I just thought people should see how rediculous it is and I dont think they should be awarded or taken away so easily. Its just silly.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||The one thing that gets me||
The one thing that gets me about this blog is the negging. I didnt say anything opposing to anyone and it was just a comment. For people to neg something like that is just a dick move and makes others hesitant to comment. Just take it for what its worth.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||I have seen a few people do||
I have seen a few people do it the last few years and I think if a lot of people joined in on it then that would be pretty affective on top of yelling. I will start doing the bottle and change trick next year!
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Trust me, I'm screaming all||
Trust me, I'm screaming all game every game but its obviously not working for us as a whole.

1) OSU-they have shut out the past two teams and held it close to USC. They will get better every week and Pryor is still good.
2)Penn State- I cant believe everyone has given up on them. I understand it was in happy valley but they shot themselves in the leg with this loss. They put the game in the air for Iowa and Iowa just had a much better game. You also have to remember that 2 of PSU's linebackers were out for the game. I still say that if they played each other ten times, PSU would win 7/10. I have to take my hat off to Iowa though because they had a great game.
3)Iowa- They showed that they have a good D and can make plays. This team has taken most people by surprise but i still think that they arent as good as PSU.
4)Michigan- Our offense can score points with the best of them but we dont know how our young team will do on the road and our defense is shaky. I think we can beat every team in the big ten but we arent that consistent. (and by i think we can beat every team i mean our offense can keep us in every game, but it just depends on our defense).
5)Wisconsin- They showed that they can play well against MSU and they are always a tough team to beat at home.
6)MSU-Is still think they are a decent team but it may take them a little bit to get it together because of their freshman QB (we have the FORCE on our side so experience doesnt matter). Remember, they almost beat the very team that has given our record any value (notre dame).
After this i dont really know because i havent payed attention too much to the other teams and me trying to rank them wouldnt be just.

Minor is definitely better. On the three huge gains that brown has had, nothing special was done. He had great blocking and had huge holes. Minor is slower but i still think that he could have done the same because a safety or corner isn't going to take him down. Minor never goes down on the first tackle and is way more consistent. Brown doesnt read the holes as well as minor and cant break a tackle. Also, minor still has that nagging injury so he isnt one hundred percent and thats why i say start brown (even though minor is better). Thats my look on the situation although i am sure some wont agree which is fine.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||thanks guys. I agree with all||
thanks guys. I agree with all you are saying. simple pass plays will be key because they wont be very talented at throwing or catching. . anything to confuse the other team will be huge because I am sure they are going to be taught the very basics and wont know what to do on broken up plays or trick plays..so your saying scratch my defensive plan and go with man coverage?
|6 years 2 weeks ago||In college football||
most kids at my school in the past couple years like Florida, texas, or USC. I will have friends over and we play NCAA and they always pick one of those teams and its just like common, seriously? and they are like "oh, I was born in texas or I have family in texas" but yet they cant name two players on the team...WV was one also for a year or two and kids act like they actually like these teams but when u confront them about how they are a fan, they just say I like this player or I like this coach..Florida I would say is the biggest bandwagoner out of them all though...I walk through school and see about three kids everyday with florida gator shirts on but yet we live in michigan...comon, lets be honest with ourselves.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||After last saturdays game, I||
After last saturdays game, I went to BD's Mongolian BBQ in AA and I sat at a table with my friends. About ten minutes after i sat down, Kelvin and his mom (who is white which i didnt know) sat down at the table next to us. He was in the full michigan warm ups and i congratulated him on the victory. I wonder why Kevin wasnt there with them? All in all though, he seemed like a pretty cool guy
|6 years 2 weeks ago||I am going to the game as well||
My dad has a friend who has one of the suite boxes at the game so he invited my dad and i for it. In the box im sure it will be nice and quite becasue we all know each other but I am almost 17 and talking trash is what i do (especially if UM is winning)...so maybe I will take a few trips out of the box and work my magic. (I am going to be possibly painted up and will not be afraid to confront any obnoxious illinois fan i see)
|6 years 7 weeks ago||my father was an alum and he||
my father was an alum and he has had season tickets on the 50 yard line for thirty years...I remember always going to the game and i would get tired of watching and would want to go out and go into the mgoblue store or whatever...the first game i remember was michigan versus rice. we killed them and we had about 40 pts...one game, i bugged my dad all day to buy me a michigan football so at the end of the game he did..we threw it around about 5 times and all the sudden my dad was like "quick give me the ball" so i did (i had no idea why he was all the sudden freaking out. . he said follow me and started fast walking over to a parking lot. there was an "old guy" (in my mind) that my dad was walking toward and he said "Bo, will you sign my sons football?" he said sure and signed it. . i had no idea what had just happened so i was like dad throw it to me and he said no, we arent going to throw this football ever again..all i had wanted all day was a football and i had no idea who that guy was so i was pissed off...when i was about 12 my dad gave me the ball cuz i finally understood who he was and it has sat in my room ever since....another thing that hooked me was when i was in 2nd grade (about). It was my birthday and i had brought two friends along with my dad to the game. my dad said about a half hour before the game that he had a suprise for me. . he took me and my friends around the stadium and went over to where the band enters. . he walks up to some guy and shows him 4 passes and we started walking into the tunnel. . my dad stops us right outside the locker room door and said give it a minute..about a minute later the band goes into the tunnel and line up along the walls and star blasting the victors.. right after they start playing the locker room opens and all of the players start running through the tunnel all pumped up. . i remember sticking my hand out for a high five in awe and my hand was just getting rocked from these guys 4 times my size. after they had all filed through we went onto the field where they were practicing and a few balls bounced over to where i was and i picked one up and threw it right to anthony thomas who had run over to get them. . that might have been one of my fondest memories of all time...i love getting tunnel passes once in a while and it makes for an awesome day..i love the smell, energy, excitement, and feeling that college football saturdays give..there is nothing better then going to a michigan game on a beautiful fall saturday and walking into the stadium with delicious kettle corn in your hand and getting goose bumps from the 100,000 + ppl yelling and cheering for the team you love..simply nothing better. GO BLUE FOR LIFE!!!
|6 years 7 weeks ago||yea that was him..he deals||
yea that was him..he deals with people who contribute to the program and is a public relations guys...basically he sucks up to people to make money and stuff.
|6 years 7 weeks ago||oops the other guys...stokes||
oops the other guys...stokes was looking ok and seemed to have good hands but he didnt really stand out to me..same with gallon..i think they need a little more time to start clicking.....mathews has very sure hands and i never saw him drop a ball but he just doesnt have the speed or explosivness that other WR have...he seems to be a very quite guy in interviews and stuff and he wasnt every like yelling "did yall see that?!?!?!?!" like some of the other players bragging when they made a good play..it was funny though, one play the CB was like hanging onto his jersey when the play wasnt anywhere near them and he just threw the guy down and seemed pissed and he kinda yelled at him to get off of him
|6 years 7 weeks ago||yea robinson had good hands||
yea robinson had good hands from what i saw and beat the CB every time on the 1v1. he had to cut the 1v1s short though because he made a diving catch into the endzone and i think when he landed the ball drove into his stomach (knocking the air out of him)..after he layed there for a little bit, he had to sit out until the next session..they have 25 five minute sessions and cant rest except for one five minute break when they can get water, a popsicle lol, or just rest..the popsicles were good btw haha
|6 years 7 weeks ago||o yea, they are all over||
o yea, they are all over there players when they make mistakes...like i said earlier, i heard more f-bombs then from a rap album..but they are also encouraging
|6 years 7 weeks ago||yea everyone was suprised at||
yea everyone was suprised at how well he was passing...maybe he is finally clicking in the system
|6 years 7 weeks ago||yea he looked like he was a||
yea he looked like he was a very smart football player and he never seemed flustered in the pocket and seemed to know what he was doing..it was an off-day for him and i was just impressed by denard more (i was expecting less from denard so i think that is what made it seem like he was doing better)....I think we will be able to win with either denard or tate..they were both able to hit guys in stride and both were good at running although denard was better (because he is so much faster)....now that i think about it, they were both pretty equal in passing, but denard made more big plays on the ground so thats kinda what set him over tate....dont get me wrong, tate made plays on the ground every time he ran, but they just werent flashy and long plays like denard. tate would get like the first down but he wasnt really ever a home-run threat like denard is
|6 years 7 weeks ago||Tate will start for sure.||
Tate will start for sure. even some of the guys were saying on the D.L (down low) that tate knows the offense so much better and plays like a true veteran and that he would start. . denard has that speed but supposedly he is inconsistant on how good is throws are. from the one practice that i saw though, denard was doing awesome with his throw accuracy. . .i think more toward the middle of the season we will know who is better and who should start because denard should have enough time by then to know the system and get his freshman kinks out (tate enrolled early so he already does)
|6 years 7 weeks ago||no problem. glad someone just||
no problem. glad someone just takes it for what it is rather than pointing out my grammar, abreviations, etc..i was just pointing out what i saw and thought i should share cuz noone else can share that insight until gameday..thought i would be nice and type everything out
|6 years 7 weeks ago||you should have heard all of||
you should have heard all of the coaches. I think i heard more f-bombs and other swear words from them than listening to a whole album of lil wayne or gucci
|6 years 7 weeks ago||brain fart i guess..it wasn't||
brain fart i guess..it wasn't like its the first time i have heard of him...just a simple mistake
|6 years 7 weeks ago||to be honest i didnt see much||
to be honest i didnt see much of him because i was concentrating on other players, but the LB group did good overall..mouton stuck out to me the most
|6 years 7 weeks ago||thank you and thats all i can||
thank you and thats all i can ask...I saw a ton of players today and its not like they had there names on them...just a simple reminder of who they were might jog my memory because i had so much info to sift through that some of it kinda blended together..so sorry i didnt remember one person until that jogged my memory because of the number.. and me asking for the number and stuff only made it easier on me to make sure i got the right player
|6 years 7 weeks ago||why am i getting negged on||
why am i getting negged on almsot every post?
someone wanna let me know what i did wrong? i am new to this
|6 years 7 weeks ago||yea it was current...and||
yea it was current...and johnson was a tank
|6 years 7 weeks ago||yea u couldnt bring in a||
yea u couldnt bring in a camera and u couldnt take pics with ur cell or take a phone call...u had to step out to do so
|6 years 7 weeks ago||oh yeah him...i dont really||
oh yeah him...i dont really remember seeing him scrimmage but on the 1v1 he did pretty good...he had a breakup or two if i remember...the CB play overall looked good during the 1v1
|6 years 7 weeks ago||no i dont...i didnt get a||
no i dont...i didnt get a chance to talk to any of the coaches cuz i had to run out right when it ended to get home..from the non coaches there and my personal oppinion though, i think williams will start (he has been impressing coaches lately) at least for a few games so vad can get his kinks worked out
|6 years 7 weeks ago||number and postion for any||
number and postion for any questions plz...just for everyone else u know
|6 years 7 weeks ago||i agree...i dont think he is||
i agree...i dont think he is an every down back because when he runs through the line he gets tackled but when he breaks it to the outside and LBs and DBs try and hit him he rocks them sometimes.
