So is our 100,000 home attendance streak in jeopardy this year? I figure if they keep upping ticket prices with crap-tacular home schedules like this, it's only a matter of time.

I'm sorry, but I hate hearing that crap about new age spread offenses being the only ones capable of winning championships. It's not the system; it's the coaches and the players within that system.

The nightmare is over. We have an Ann Arbor institution back.

If your dog is having seizures, and especially multiple seizures, do not sit on this. Go to a vet. One seizure could be minor, but if they're having multiple seizures, like my girlfriend's dog had recently, it could be indicative of much bigger problems, i.e. a tumor.

Welcome to the dead zone my friend. Football and basketball season are over.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Unless everyone on his board||
Unless everyone on his board knows something that I don't, I think you're a bit premature in your post. You talk about McGary as if he's already said he plans to be back. We don't know that yet.
|4 days 8 hours ago||There isn't any one||
There isn't any one particular moment for either of them with me.
Stauskas: Going all-world against Florida and making Donovan's team look like a bunch of chumps. That ice-cold 3 pt shot at Wisconsin to put the game away. Blowing kisses to the mongrel hordes within Breslin. Watching him get insanely pumped up after banking yet another 3 against MSU at home this year. That go-ahead 3 against OSU last year that sent Crisler into a raging fury.
GRIII: 360 dunk against Minnesota last year, having the half of his life against #1 ranked Arizona and shutting a lot of people up, bringing the house down against MSU this year with that beautiful alley-oop from Stauskas and essentially putting the game away. I know I'm forgetting some but oh well.
Damn happy to have had these guys in a Michigan uniform. They represented the school and the program well. Although I selfishly wished they could've stayed, I don't blame them for leaving for one second. Go chase the dream, fellas. You've earned it.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Depends on how their careers||
Depends on how their careers go. Its great to have the degree no matter what, but if you're tearing up the NBA, aren't you going to want to spend more time on that making sure it stays that way vs. finishing a degree you know you'll never use?
|4 days 18 hours ago||Those two, even if they never||
Those two, even if they never become NBA stars, are already making more money than most of us on this board do. They get paid to play a game. If that's the posse you're talking about, by all means sign me up.
|4 days 21 hours ago||I haven't been able to figure||
I haven't been able to figure this out: are there still the "lower tier" bowl games that are going to happen, i.e. The Outback Bowl, Alamo Bowl, etc.?
|5 days 9 hours ago||I'm not worried about||
I'm not worried about Stauskas and Robinson leaving. Yes they're tough to replace, and I don't want to downplay Stauskas' importance to the team this year, but Beilein has stockpiled talent that can shoot 3 pointers. Next year could potentially be his most athletically gifted team yet.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Reason for optimism? Let's||
Reason for optimism? Let's try the fact that it almost can't be any worse than it was last year. It was a half step above Gardner hiking the ball to himself every snap.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Right, this is what I'm sure||
Right, this is what I'm sure Urban Meyer had in mind when he decided to recruit the kid. Just to troll Michigan.
|5 days 17 hours ago||Hard for me to blame him if||
Hard for me to blame him if he does leave. He's staring his dream right in the face, and now might be his best chance to go. He's been playing out of his natural position for the past 2 years, and there's no guarantee it'd be anything different next year.
But boy, do we need McGary back now. Beilein will find a way to adapt no matter who we have on the court, but if we lose Stauskas, Robinson, and McGary, we could really be in trouble. Especially without a true big man.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Ehh I'm fine with this. As||
Ehh I'm fine with this. As long as he doesn't make personal attacks, I don't see why anyone should be up in arms over this. Its a rivalry, you're supposed to poke fun at each other. If it was Gardner doing this, we'd all be singing his praises for doing it.
|6 days 9 hours ago||Wow, Joffrey died a lot||
Wow, Joffrey died a lot sooner than I thought he would. But you know its the mark of a great actor when everyone praises his character dying in the most painful fashion.
|6 days 17 hours ago||-Wins, for god's sake. I||
-Wins, for god's sake. I don't expect us to win a national title next year, or even a Big Ten title, but at least show me we're on the right track towards competing for one at some point in the near future.
-Player Development. Whatever Beilein does, Hoke needs to figure out how to do that. With the exception of a select few players, there has barely been anyone on this roster that has shown any form of consistent play. In fact, it seems like sometimes that some of the players get worse. Hopefully the addition of Nussmeier and shuffling around the defensive staff will improve this, but still, I'll believe it when I see it. I'd rather have an expert talent developer than an expert recruiter any day of the week.
Beat OSU and/or MSU. If you can't do this, I don't care if you're RichRod or Nick Saban, you're not going to last long at this school, and rightfully so. I'm tired of getting curb-stomped up and down the street by both of these schools. Sure, OSU has been much more competitive lately, but there is no such thing as "almost points" in football. They still beat us every year. And MSU, well, they're just the flat-out better program right now. In every phase of the game. And they know it, too. Thank god Beilein has turned the tide in both of these rivalries on the basketball court, otherwise this would undoubtedly be the most depressed fanbase of anywhere in America right now.
-Form a competent O-Line. Just....please do this. I'm not expecting an Alabama line out there, but make me believe we can at least fend off a pass rush from the Akrons and UConns of the world.
|1 week 9 hours ago||Remind me, who did they||
Remind me, who did they spread the ball around to last year besides Miller and Hyde? Come on, man, while I do agree that Meyer's ideal offense is meant for spreading the ball all over the field, the run game was essentially their entire offense last year. None of their wideouts really ever intimidated me, mostly because Miller had some accuracy issues, and Dontre Wilson played like the freshman that he was.

Keep grinding, JMo. Hope wherever you end up playing, whether its Europe or the NBA, that you keep kicking ass.

It means you're reading way too much into this....
|1 week 2 days ago||Wow, now we desperately need||
Wow, now we desperately need McGary back. If he doesn't come back, then we're in a bit of a predicament next year, and Beilein better start finding some big men for the 2015 class.
|1 week 2 days ago||Not sure about Tampa going||
Not sure about Tampa going after Mike Evans. Would be a good pickup, but they need to focus more on the defensive side of the ball, namely pass rush. They won't get Clowney and I wouldn't trade up for him, but I might make a push for Khalil Mack.
|1 week 2 days ago||Come on people. This is just||
Come on people. This is just essentially confirming what we already know. I'd kill to have him back, but if he goes the other route, I won't blame him for a second. Its a lot of money. Stauskas' defense might be a little suspect at times, but luckily for him, the NBA doesn't play defense.

It's not like there are many of them left to consider him a douche, anyway.

I'm sure the Lions would find a way to ruin what could be an otherwise promising career for Watkins.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm happy for the kid, but we||
I'm happy for the kid, but we shouldn't have to live in a society where "coming out" takes courage. If I was his coach, all I'd ask is if he'll continue giving the same effort he has day in and out. If he can say yes, then I have nothing else to say.
|1 week 3 days ago||Ehh sometimes I can agree||
Ehh sometimes I can agree with you, but his portrayals in Django and Wolf of Wall Street were just superb. I think he's deserved an Oscar by this point.
