..that might be the case, because it seems unlikely to go from brand new to posting enough in one month to get thousands of points (even when you're getting super-negged on every post). i bet thanksgiving dinner is fun at that dude's house.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||I and most others that have||
I and most others that have been here since the RR days make the exact same arguments we did as Rodriguez was being fired. Just because half the fan base was wrong and can't let it go, doesn't mean our arguments (made in 2010) are revisionist. RR never had the support that Hoke did, period. I don't see how that can even be argued. And talking about RR bad recruiting is like saying hoke is a bad recruiter because of this year. Michigan recruits people on it's own, if the fans and former players are behind it. None of it really matters, since it can't be changed now, but it was obvious from day one that hiring Rodriguez was a long term play that the get-off-my-lawn crew cratered. Had Brandon said Rodriguez was getting another year during his final season (as he did for hoke last year), 2011 probably would have shown similar results and we'd be competing for titles right now because he'd have been able to recruit. Instead, hoke.

Is anyone "attacking" non-revenue sports? If football isn't making money, there are no non-revenue sports, period. While gouging fans now may help the current non-revenue athletes, destroying the fan base (football) that supports the non-revenue sports jeopardizes the future of all these sports. Everyone wins if we keep the football program healthy. I doubt there are many people here who don't want the best for every student athlete at Michigan, it's just that supporting Brandon because of the current upgrades is worse for all non-revenue sports long term, without question.

It just makes you look ignorant - I hope you aren't a UM grad. You should realize that there are probably hundreds of people on this board with family members on the autism spectrum.

It's a whole day of fun!

..but at the same time, we should probably remember that the coaches and everyone else inside the walls of Fort Schembechler are using the negative press/sentiment as a motivational tool. The us against them mentality is ok with me if it helps them win Saturday. Still unfortunate, but the kid is 19 - perhaps we should cut him some slack?

|16 weeks 2 days ago||I'm curious||
and this is an honest question - do you work in the athletic department or have a personal connection to someone who does? i've been on mgblog forever and i can't recall seeing more counterintuitive/defensive posts from one person in a two week span since i've been here.

Just curious - do these guys (or their families) have to pay to travel to all these camps or do the sponsors cover some of the costs? Seems like it would get pretty expensive to be flying all over the country every other weekend.

Was more embarassing to me than Pop Evil, despite my intense dislike for Pop Evil. At least the Pop Evil song is unique to Michigan and terrible.

It seems to me that if the local media did what they did to Rodriguez after his arrival, they would have a field day with Les Miles. Can you imagine the Freep stories assasinating his character for page views next August 25th? I would imagine MSC and DB want someone with a spotless record after what we've been through the last couple years. Miles is most definitely not that guy.

I could be way off, but I think one of the biggest advantages stability at qb brings opposing defenses is that they can memorize general %'s based on formation. So if Tate and Denard run the same plays, the defense would be prepared for the general plays, but not have the advantage of knowing "hey they're in X formation with X personnel, which means that 65% of the time they're running play X."

Sorry if someone posted this already, I think half the world is trying to eFire Rich Rodriguez right now so the site is running a little slow...

could a place like this host so you wouldn't actually need your own server?
|4 years 22 weeks ago||still more||
sorry i can't stop thinking about this. i just feel like if you make this app the best michigan football app out there (there doesn't seem to be anything remotely good right now), you would probably pick up a lot of new mgousers.
- live scoring updates (would be awesome, probably really difficult - does somebody have a feed you could use for this for just mich?)
i'd love to pretend like i'll stop posting on this, but i'll probably have more. and sorry to bombard you, just figured you guys can take/leave whatever you want. you've probably thought about a lot of these already, but couldn't hurt to throw them out there if they're easily done.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||more||
sorry, just thinking of other stuff that could be useful for a mich fan. like, might as well make it an all-in-one app. also, i dont even have the app so these are just conceptual things that people might like
- rss feed with articles from detnews, annarbornews, etc?
- updated schedule with kickoff times and tv/radio info (something that gets updated as they announce game times)
- a twitter feed could be cool too, like an aggregate of people (angelique, brian, etc)
don' t know if people would even care about this stuff, just trying to make the app more useful than just going to mgoblog on their browser. personally, the push notification thing alone would make the app worth having (and people could always turn that off if they didn't want them)
|4 years 22 weeks ago||push?||
late to the party as usual, but thinking it could be cool to get push notifications for "breaking" news. things like wolfolk injury, ncaa investigation results, etc. not sure how easy or hard that would be, but i assume brian could just determine if he thinks something is pushworthy and send. i wouldn't want to get one every update, but that way i'd feel like i was in the loop if something big happened.

i think there's a bit of a difference between 8 years and less than 2, but you're the smart one so you tell me. i'd stay and argue more, but i think you've done a fine job of proving to everyone here that you're an idiot. back to the bridge with you!
|5 years 10 weeks ago||haha - bar exam||
you are funny. do me a favor and list all the reasons you're smart in one post so i don't have to gag on it for the rest of time. bar exam! sidelines! talked to coaches! players!
please come back and talk to us in a few years when the fair weather is back.
