- He likes to run a no-huddle and utilize tempo when he can
- Not sure if he can run a passing attack the way Hoke appears to want
- He's already at a top tier program making $700,000 a year, what are the odds he would leave that?

Duffs has gone downhill a lot over the last few years. In fact when we were there last Christmas visiting family they were barely on par with BWW, we vowed never to go back when we visit. Anchor bar was never that impressive. I mean they were good, but not the best. Hard to pick one that's the best, but Bar Bill was probably my top choice if I had to choose.

Delicous? They're not terrible, but their wings top out at average. Of course living in Buffalo for 2 years spoiled me on wings, so, yeah. I miss authentic wings and beef on weck.

I think they can and can be reletively effective at it, but our front 7 just wasn't getting home at all like MSU's generally did, which makes playing tight man coverage very risky.

I think a lot of it has to do with the manner and tone in which you are disagreeing. Are you being and ass or are you being respectful? I've done a lot of public speaking and one of the best pieces of advice I was ever given - which applies to all communication I've found - is that the presentation of your message is just as, if not more, important than the content.
Also, text communication lends itself to being easily misinterpreted because so much of communication is non-vocal. My rule of thumb is, when I want to come off as respectful in text based communication, to go overboard on clarifying the manner in which I'm trying to say something. If that makes any sense.

My interpretation - "There's always people out there that you give them a bar of solid gold and their response will be 'it's too heavy'. All of you that are that type of people and loudly outspoken, shut your pie hole. Big B is comin' for that ass now if you get out of line" ...or something like that.
I <3 Brian... mostly because his name is almost the same as mine. And the writing about Michigan stuff. And things. Yeah, mostly things. Mostly.

So why are you here commenting instead of just leaving, if that's how you feel? If a mule kicked you in the sack I wouldn't refrain from laughing.

Or, you know, the fact that they weren't eligible for a BCS game under the rules. Did our brand get us in ahead of likely better teams? Maybe, but we did win that game, and again, MSU was ineligible according to the rules.

Need to see the replay, but was Gallon's route on the 2pt conversion right? He was right in the same area as Dileo and looked like it caused extra traffic there.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Or, you know, high recruiting||
Or, you know, great recruiting and coaching/development. While I do agree too many people have a video game "NCAA football 'XX" mindset in regards to recruiting, it is definitely important and greatly increases a team's chances of success when they are able to get more highly rated recruits. Just see the Mathlete's diary from a couple years ago.
...or I just missed your sarcasm!

I know man. Except I don't even feel like watching it. I haven't felt that way since '09 OSU game, and unless something changes I doubt I'll feel any different for the rest of the season. After this weekend, I've given up all hope for this season, and probably next if there isn't any change made to the offensive staff after this season. "This is Michigan" has come to represent something I despise, namely, bashing your head over and over against the wall without refusing to adapt, take advantage, and innovate. That is certainly not Michigan to me.

I'm pretty sure I remember reading both Magnus and SC having the fundamental same opinion on Borges as Brian, just that the reasons for why he's terrible are somewhat different. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

So you don't really want Kalis on our team, got it.

See, this makes no sense. 'Bama's engineering program isn't even in the same league as UM's. No sense.

Maybe. Kind of.
|5 weeks 17 hours ago||You mean the same NE team||
You mean the same NE team that got man-handled by the Gophers, who UM beat 42-13? This is no gimmie game, and I expect UM to just as easily blow it as win, but I don't think NE is at all better. Even, maybe, but definitely not better IMHO.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||For whatever it's worth||
For whatever it's worth there's an AP article that was on Yahoo! about DB watching film every Sunday with the coaches and in the interview he said that this last Sunday he watched the defensive film with Mattison and the offensive film with Hoke and Borges. So, read into that however you want.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I'm not an expert on what||
I'm not an expert on what they run, but from watching they seem to run a fair amount of old-schoolish optiony power type stuff. And it seems like they run more of a power Urban Meyer type spread in general rather than mostly "basketball on grass" Oregon type.
Totally agree on the irony! Which is also why it will never happen. Utilizing every possible advantage on offense doesn't seem to be what Hoke wants, he wants the "pro-style" out-talent, out-execute your opponent, or so it seems.

Got it. I actually hope that works out, however unlikely.

I don't know man, Beck seems to be pretty good but there's several factors working against us:
I think he would definitely be a big upgrade over Borges, though.

Over dramatic much?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||True, but at the same time||
True, but at the same time the football landscape was very different when Bo coached. Offenses have been, in general, putting up much larger numbers in terms of yards and points in the last decade. Not a defense of Hoke or indictment on Bo that he would do worse now, just pointing out that it isn't necessarily a fair comparison.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I'd like to see us go uptemto||
I'd like to see us go uptemto directly following any big play, meaning, anything over 10 yds we immediately go "nascar" and go for a knockout punch... or something like that. I haven't exactly thought it through all the way.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I made a mistake...||
Well, I made a mistake and ventured over to The Only Colors, and wow, it's beyond mind-blowing how delusional and narrow-sighted many of the posters over there are. I mean, anyone with any level of knowlege and critical reasoning can see just how insane some of the statements and claims they make are. I guess it's hard for me to understand with my worldview how people like that exist, who only see and find what they're looking for to confirm their view of the world around them. As the great Chaz Michael-Michaels says, "it's mind bottling."
Of course UM has many fans like that too, so, glass houses and all I guess.

So you're saying someone can only mock MSU for being academically inferior to UM - in a trash talking sense - if they went to UM? Or am I misunderstanding?
