Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Mike is legendary amongst amongst the Michigan Football fraternity.

McGreevy's is the place to go this year. I have been going to Sweet Carolines and Tavern in the Square for the last four years (my two sons live in Boston and I live in NYC). McGreevy's is more quaint and pretty solid over all.

I don't dislike Borges. The intent of the thread was to get a discussion going around the difference styles of offense between the two coordinators. A fair amount of the alumni love the pro-style offense as opposed to the West Coast offense.
What is funny about this board is that if people disagree with contect, they attack the poster as opposed to not addressing the material or rebuttaling the thread. I am pretty confident that the majority of the people who attack posters on the board never went to Michigan, never played a sport in college let alone high school and probably haven't been laid this decade.

Wow. I can not believe that I am watching this implosion happen.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Spielman is Douche||
How much of a Douche is Spielman! He can never make a positive comment about Michigan.
It's amazing how bad our team is after three years of supposedly great recruiting. This is embassing play on a nationally televised game. It's a good game for recruiting (sarcasm). We should be able to offer starting spots to 2014 recruits. The same recruiting strategy that we used the last three years!
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Improvements this week||
Since arrival, Hoke has made all the right moves. I am curious to see what changes or improvements, if any, the staff can get accomplished this week. UConn might be on par with Akron so if we don't see any improvements this week, there will be plenty of anxiety on this board.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Relying on Hope More than Reality||
I agree with both comments. Transitioning to three new starters on the interrior line is always trouble. My hope, purely hope, was that the our recruiting over the last two years would make that transition less painfull.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Referring to Michigan as "Big Blue"||
In the future, I won't reference Michigan as the "Big Blue" on this blog but for the record there are many former Michigan Athletes and Alum who from time to time refer to Michigan as the "Big Blue."

I go to Atlanta often. I recommend staying in Buckhead and commuting into downtown. Also, I have been to several Final Fours and you can usually pick up tickets at the stadium after Saturday's games from the fans of the losing team. They pretty much give them away.
Fortunately for me, I am going! Go Blue!

Who would have thought that we would have lead the game by double digits the entire game!

What a pick up by Beilein. Spike has been a blessing coming in off the bench for Burke.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||McGary 4th||
I think McGary just picked up his fourth foul. We have trouble when McGary is not in. Hardaway needs to start taking the rock to the rack. Hold tight!

How I am over reacting when we could lose by 40. Come on. Be real.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Most embarrassing lost in my career||
I have been watching The Blue since '77. This is easily the most embarrassing loss for our MBB team in my life team. Why? Because, for the most part, we thought that this was a W. When in reality, this just shows that we are comletey in transition . THJ is a solid three star who cannot take over a game against a very good team. GRIII is a pretty good freshman who needs two more years in the league, Blouses is growing but still a good freshman. MM, is real but young. Trey is real but every once in a while is play for the scout (fade away three?) and crazy street ball shots.
We need two more years of true talen infusion. Go Blue, I still love you but we are still JV!
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Drink the Kool Aid!!!!!||
Sugar Free Baby! Fab Five all day never emabarrsed us!! They played with everybody and all comers!
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Are we slight better than Minny?||
Look, if you are honest with yourself, we are the fifth best team in the B10! Hardway is good for 30 minutes against every other good B10 team. GR3, is a good true freshman who lost his mogo, Blouses is a solid freshman who every once in while can be lights out. Horford and Morgan have virtually no offense. We check out Sweek 16!!!!
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Defenseless Player||
So that players don't get called for hitting a "defenseless player" let's eliminate pass plays.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Expectations||
Look, we all hope to win every game every season and we all hope to be a national powerhouse. However, we are far from being what we want. Hoke is a great coach and a great leader for our program. Overall we have a very good staff, however we kidding ourselves if we think that we have talent that can play with Bama, LSU, Oregon's of these recent years. I am comfortable that Hoke will get us there. However, games like today and years like this year are very painful. As long as we are moving in the right direction with recruiting, execution and the are kids getting coached up, I am behind this staff. And as much as I bitch and complain, we are completely headed in the right direction. Go Blue and I need to chill tonight!
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Realty||
It would be refreshing to see people on this board accept realty. We sucked today, our play calling and oline in the second half was embarrasing. We have another year or two before we are possibly competitive nationallyd. Until we are honest with our self assesment, we will always be consider alof, arrogant and out of touch.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Understanding X's and O's||
There are plenty of ex players and people who understand football on this board who express their unhappiness. If the people on this board want to all hold hands, do group hugs and never listen to fellow Wolverine followers criticism then let's state that as a rule in the header of the board. Too many people on this board attack posters if that don't write a positive post. That is a joke, in my mind, this board is a place to create debate and express views.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Game Over||
Average season in a very shitty conference. We let the Bucknets go undefeated. We have a lot of heart but average talent on the field. In the end, we are a very average team. I am still hopefull that Hoke can get us to the next level.
Onto basketball. Hopefully we can deliver on our pre-season expectations because obviously we shit the bed in football.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Oline and Play Calling||
Borgess will find a way to out do his second half performance in the final seven minutes. Furthermore, good job ABC putting the ultimate OSU slappy to call this game. Our OLine is as soft as any in the last forty years of Michigan football.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Borgess/ Play Calling||
Let's put Bellamy in. That would really throw the Bucknuts D off.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Thats the Game||
Unbelievable. Our oline is awful. Not only can they not get a push upfront but their ability to protect is awful. We are overrated. The B10 is awful and we are a middle of the row B10 team.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Play Calling||
The play calling in the second half has been mind boggling. How do you constantly run Vincent Smith or Denard up the gut on. Furthermore, leave Gardner in so that he can stay in rythm.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Gardner Making Plays||
Gardner's ability to make plays with his arm force's defense's to respect our passing game and quit crowding the line of scrimmage. Here's to looking to the future!
