The importance of Beilein's taking our youngsters to Europe cannot be forgotten. Against two quality opponents, away from home ( vs SU in Atlantic City, @ Clemson), the team has performed admirably.
Having such a young squad get experience over in Europe was a great idea, and it seems to be paying off as we're playing above our years, and in environments where youngsters usually do not perform well.
Kudos to Beilein and the AD for allowing the kids such an opportunity.

I'm proud to say that I was one of the few students that stayed in the student section during the UConn rushing of the court. I was embarrassed that we would rush the court, really.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I think most of the crucification talk was coming at the beginning of the season after The Horror, and being blown out by Oregon, at home, when nobody knew Oregon was THAT good. The talks definitely died down.
Of course, our standards have fallen, but giving a head coach time to get his players in, and starting to see success once a coach is playing with his players, and being happy about it, isn't too much of a drop in expectations.

Back at Orientation in 2007, I met a bunch of football players, and camp started shortly after our orientation, which was Aug 1-3. I remember hanging with D.

Yeah, absolutely no way this game gets played. We've had thunderstorms rolling through since about 5 AM that were as hard as I've ever seen em.

Thanks for the informative post, nonetheless. Always appreciated.

"Another Good Day Of Practice Down One Step Closer To The Ultimate Goal!!!" is what DG tweeted yesterday at about 8 PM.
I hope that means this isn't anything to worry about if he called yesterday a "good day of practice"...I would assume sustaining an injury wouldn't lead to this kind of tweet.

|5 years 7 weeks ago||Old Spice Classic||
I forget the name of the tournament we played in earlier this year, but that does not bode well for this tournament.
Beilein is known to be a great game-planner, but tournaments do not allow for sure game-planning. While Sims and Manny can both be studs, they need to follow a system to bring their talents out, and if the system and plan cannot be put fully into place by game-time, I don't think they can carry the team.
That said, we always will have our chances, and this team has the talent if we can shoot the damn ball.
Let's go blue!
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Agreed||
Agree on the Mac Snack wrap. I've tried it three times now, because their marketing is so ridiculous, it actually makes me want to keep trying it.
My take :
Hamburgers are best hot. With the cooler lettuce, in addition to a not heated flour tortilla, and a small portion of warm burger, the temperature is just not right. The mixing of the burger and the cooler flour tortilla is what leads to the failure.
If anyone wants to try it though, it's not AWFUL. As I said, I've had it three times now.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Love to have em||
I'd love to have them, if I could pick them up late Saturday or Sunday...

|5 years 8 weeks ago||My Apologies||
I apologize, I meant San Diego. Well, I didn't mean San Diego, but I confused my Comartie's.
But, in any matter, I think my point is a valid one disregarding the team I mentioned originally.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Be Wary||
Arizona is putting him on sale like he's a rotten apple. I'd be wary of why they're giving him up so easily...there has to be some issues that may be behind this. Unless, of course, it just has to do with cash.

I think the main reason behind the Yuengling is because it is the oldest beer brewed in America. Frankly, I've got no problem with it either, and don't get enough of it in AA.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||high expectations||
I had the same hopes, but to perform so well in his first year is pretty spectacular. Let's hope that Denard will tear it up on both the track, and the field in years to come. I see great improvement in his future.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Lack of interest||
The lack of interest in this post is quite surprising, especially after our recent goalie struggles. Sometimes, I wish he was back here...but what can you do. Hope he grows as a goalie, and a hockey player. Go Blue!
|5 years 9 weeks ago||Relationship w/ Beilein||
I usually sit right behind UM's bench during the games, and I don't know how much it's really worth, but it seemed like before the game against PSU this Saturday, Manny and JB had a nice moment. A big smile from Manny to JB, and then a little hand grab/hug type thing. It kind of warmed me up to the idea that Manny might actually stay...but I don't know, maybe it's wishful thinking over a small moment that meant nothing at all.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Losing streaks are the worst.||
Losing streaks are the worst. And they keep building upon themselves as you just pick anything and everything to get out of them, so you're picking games you don't know ANYTHING about. My buddy right now is on an 8 game losing streak, looking at 9 right now, with Notah Begay coming outta nowhere and sitting T1st at Pebble Beach.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||I love the ridiculous games||
I love the ridiculous games they post on there that basically nobody would care about. They also have fun ones, like whether Puxatowny Phil would see his shadow, and who would last longer in the spelling bee, etc. It's a fun game.
I whipped out a 20 streak last year, and lost on a WNBA pick, of all things. Quite sad. They gave me a free shirt for it though, pretty cool.
Me and my buddies decided we'd try for most win's in a month, now. It's a nice little change of pace after losing so many streaks in that 7-10 range, and feeling nothing but anger towards teams that I would usually not give a crap about.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Again, I agree.||
I agree 100%. He's got the arm strength, and accuracy wasn't horrendous. I think when it comes to decision making, it'll be more time looking at film, and in practice. He was a true freshman...these things will come with time. Of course, he's not afforded MUCH time, but to write him off after a year, it just rubs me the wrong way.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||I completely agree that he||
I completely agree that he was an awful passer. But you aren't going to take into account that he came in cold, in the middle of games, with a small percentage of the playbook at his disposal, with less practice than most true freshmen that start (as he wasn't the first-team guy)?
|5 years 11 weeks ago||So many people||
don't matter. The boosters matter in a minor manner. Dave Brandon, Mary Sue Coleman, and the people on the INSIDE matter. I have a feeling the insiders knew that they were making a long-term investment when making their decision to completely change the program. As long as he's getting us to a bowl next year, I think he stays, because the insiders in the program understand that this was a radical change, and that continuity is necessary and discontinuity will only set us back another few years.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Why write off Denard?||
What makes you think that Denard Robinson's career as a QB is over? He came in, as a true freshman, and made some mistakes. He was using maybe 40% of the playbook, and was put in cold each and every time he played.
You seem to think that DG will be better skilled at passing than Denard after spring practice, but you have no idea how Denard has progressed since the few times we saw him last season, or with some spring practice himself.
I don't really understand why Denard has been written off by so many different people. Most of the time Rich Rod talks about QBs, he refers to both Tate and Denard. While this may be coachspeak, it's something that you can't straight up ignore.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Blocking vs Route-Running||
The way I saw it, at the games last year, was that Koger was out there on more pass-friendly downs, while Webb was out there for mainly rushing attempts. I think the coaches found Webb to be a better run-blocking TE, as opposed to Koger?
|5 years 11 weeks ago||?||
Is this a concern that we've been made aware of? Or is this speculation? Seems a little out of line to just speculate that he'd be academically ineligible.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Ninjas are already here||
I think most of the ninja type guys he looks for are here, already. You look at our SR and RBs from previous classes, lots of them are the ninja type you are talking about. That wasn't a position of need this year, in any way...IMHE.

|5 years 20 weeks ago||Kobe?||
I'd appreciate it if you could inform me what "far worse situation" Kobe Bryant was in? It was a far worse situation personally for him because it was CLAIMED that he had raped a woman. Last I checked, the woman's criminal case was dropped, and Kobe was not found guilty.
So yes, you could say he also cheated on his wife, but with only ONE woman who came out, not eleven (not that we know all of these new women are actually telling the truth). It took Kobe a bit of time to fall back into graces with companies and the general public after clearing his name of his rape allegations, however, I'm not sure Tiger will be able to, due to the multitude of women that came out alleging he had had an affair with them.
If you were referring to something else, I'd just like to know. Otherwise, I hope I cleared the situation up for you.

I believe he committed to WVU within the past week or so. Could be wrong, though.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||Game against Houston Baptist||
At the game against Houston Baptist, before the OSU game, they also left at half. I think the coaches only bring them to the game for a half, or at least, that's what I concluded then. So, either before that game, they were unimpressed as well, or it's just how long the coaches plan on them being at the game.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||Sorry but...||
Where did you get word that he wouldn't be coaching here? I don't believe that's been finalized, and in fact, I think it's been noted otherwise....correct me if i'm wrong, though...since you seem pretty strongly behind your statement

Tiger was trying to be first in line at Golf Galaxy. Man has gotta buy some new clubs...great deals, can't blame him for the rush.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||1-3-1||
I think Beilein went to the trap, knowing that against a team like Creighton, it would work. Once it wasn't working as well, especially late second half, when we made our run, I saw a whole lot of the 1-3-1 defense. I don't think we have anything to worry about defensively. Personally, I was more worried about our inability to rebound, at times. I feel like Manny and Novak are the only ones that can really FIGHT for a rebound. It's frustrating.

|5 years 22 weeks ago||TD Run by Saine||
On that TD run by B. Saine in the 2nd quarter, I saw one blatant hold during the game, and then watching the replay later in the evening thought that maybe TWO holds could have been called on that play. Really surprising that it wasn't called, but I'd say that the refs were pretty consistent in NOT calling much of anything.
