|1 week 6 days ago||closer to 99%||
About 1.3% of the US population lives in Kentucky, and some of those are Louisville fans. It's kind of annoying that if Kentucky loses, the players won't even care because they're just passing through for one season on the way to the NBA.

That was the basketball equivalent of the Akron game. Tennessee is much better than Akron, but it feels about the same: M narrowly avoided a historic embarrassment.

I was thinking the same thing looking at her stats so far. Is she playing with an injury?
|11 weeks 3 days ago||yep||
The question now is what does the university do to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again?
|12 weeks 20 hours ago||short track is awesome||
I find the individual races usually more entertaining than the relays though. 4 or 5 skaters going head to head and jockeying for position for a short time, and frequently something bizarre happens like a dude from Australia winning the gold because the 4 guys in front of him all wiped out. I also love snobocross for much the same reason.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Rodriguez's problem wasn't offense||
He inherited next to nothing and by his 3rd year had the offense working as well as it ever did under Carr. The problem (apart from recruiting and retention) was that he meddled with the defense until it was an incoherent mess.

Stanford's uniforms yesterday were unreadable. It's bad enough that they wore black which isn't one of their colors, but they could have at least made the numbers white instead of dark red.
|17 weeks 13 hours ago||no, she's underrated||
Unlike a lot of fashion models she looks like a real woman with meat on her bones, and more importantly she's a Michigan fan.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I agree||
Cal has a number of returning RBs but none of them stood out in 2013, and Enwere would have a better shot at early playing time there than at M. M's best chance to get him to flip would be if Joe Mixon ends up at Cal, but that seems unlikely.

Stage 4 lung cancer is brutal. Hope the drug keeps working.
and f**k cancer. I myself had stage 1 lymphoma 12 years ago, but stage 1 is no comparison to stage 4.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||good job||
I mostly agree with your ratings, but I disagree on Delano Hill. He had a total of one tackle. I find it very difficult to believe that he made the special teams significantly better than his replacement would have, and that his contribution this year was worth forfeiting his 5th year senior season in 2017.
True freshmen usually do not play well on special teams as they are usually much more mistake-prone than veterans. I wouldn't burn a guy's redshirt just to play him on special teams unless he's a kicker, holder, or returner.

I would get rid of overtime for any non-playoff game in any sport. The games are long enough already, tired players are more likely to get hurt, and if you can't beat these other jokers in 60 minutes (9 innings, 48 minutes, 90 minutes, etc) you don't deserve to win.
I also hated the term "deathbacker". It sounded like something out of a bad Jack Black movie.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||this||
This is a perfectly appropriate bowl against a perfectly reasonable opponent. I can understand people compaining about how the season went, but to complain about this bowl matchup is just silly. What the hell did people expect? We're 7-5 and no better or worse than our record.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||this is anything but a cake team||
K-State destroyed Texas Tech and played everyone tough. Their worst loss was by 10 points. I think we'll beat them if the offense can do most of what it did against OSU, but it won't be easy.
|19 weeks 22 hours ago||don't forget the pirate||
He has Wazzu in a bowl this year.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||because he's a freshman||
An unproven player should never get a reserved number. I could see Countess or Taylor getting a reserved number before the season starts, but none of the other DBs.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||losing||
This game was a perfect negative image of the Akron or UConn games. It sucks to lose especially to OSU, but I think everyone is a lot less worried about the state of the program now than they were a few hours ago.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||don't blame him||
2-point conversions work 40-50% of the time. Our run defense had been so poor, we were probably less than 50-50 to win in OT.
|20 weeks 14 hours ago||last 4||
Since teams have figured out how to snuff our offense, the offense has scored 6, 13, 9, and 14 points in regulation. Even that's misleading because the two TDs against Iowa were off of short fields. This is basically a 10 points per game offense.
|20 weeks 20 hours ago||OSU 27 M 10||
Their D isn't great but it's better than Neb or NW, both of which shut us down. I would be surprised if we get more than 250 yards or they get less than 350.

I think it should be a new post tag, along with "100% worst thing ever" and "i want a staple gun".
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Cal is the other team I follow||
having spent 4 years there before my 9 at Michigan. Jared Goff does not play like Tom Brady. Maybe he plays the way Brady would have if he had been thrown to the wolves as a true freshman. He's built like a true freshman and he reads defenses like a true freshman.
That said I think the Bears can win between 3 and 6 games next year depending on how much they get from the dozen or so guys who missed most or all of this season with injuries. They lose only a DT, the kicker, and a handful of marginal players.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||eh||
Pretty mild as far as trash talk goes. Still probably better to say nothing at all.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||weirdos||
The same weirdos who post after losses on every other Michigan board. This board wasn't like that for a number of years, but things ain't pretty now.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||I don't think he needs to win 10||
I think 8-4 would be enough for 2014 as long as the offense gets straightened out. Going forward I don't know whether 8-4 indefinitely would be enough, though.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||agree||
Our defense isn't great, but it's functional and isn't underachieving relative to its talent and experience level. Our offense is an absolute black hole.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||the other guys could easily be worse||
Gardner is a below average qb at this point, but he has had some good games. Morris has yet to show any indication that he can play.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Funchess is unreliable||
He dropped everything that came his way today.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||we are not ball||
like any team with a functioning offense.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||option 2||
But I would say the same thing for every single returning player on the offense. Not a single one of them played well enough this year to be a presumptive starter next year. That includes Funchess, who dropped a ridiculous number of passes today.
