But it takes good coaching to bring out the best in them. Michigan is a talented team as evidenced by multiple services' ratings, but they have underperformed for years. What makes a good team great relies on several things: coaching is perhaps the most important. Under Luke Fickell, OSU went 6-7. The very next season with mostly the same players, Urban Meyer went undefeated. Michigan routinely outrecruits Michigan State, but look at who has been more successful lately; I attribute that to coaching. Hoke's record at Michigan has continued to deteriorate despite his excellent recruitment of players. He's the head coach and he is to blame.
The "true fans" talk is irrelevant to Michigan's on-field successes/failures. For the first time since I was 8 years old, I haven't gotten that butterfly feeling when kickoff for a Michigan game approaches. Does that mean I'm not a true fan anymore? I don't care. I just want them to win, and I want to look forward to Saturday football again.

What the hell are you talking about? "Street ball?" There are only "a few respectful young men out there, but not the majority?"

and you don't pick up on a Fab 5 reference? The Illinois student section chanted "crack house" to Jalen Rose after the bust at a party he attended. Jalen promptly went off for 23 points.

Michigan has good games and bad games. This one was a bad one. Why harp on it? The team that turns the ball over less and shoots better wins the vast majority of the time. All this post does is remind us of this fact. I'm getting tired of the faux-analytical nature of this blog. Basketball is a sport full of unpredictability. Shoehorning statistical analysis into it is a fool's errand. Kaminsky had a great game, Stauskus had a bad one, and that's basically it.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate some of the meta analyitics like Kenpom. However, this game isn't explained by them as effectively.

has got to do something more than kick it out for a contested 3 when he has the PG on his back. Make a post move, come on!
|34 weeks 3 days ago||I agree with you 100% OP.||
I, for one, am sick and tired of coaches giving 3 word answers to reporters' questions and players giving cliches during postgame. The reporters are there for a reason, and that's to get an inside view of the game on the field. Well, Erin Andrews got exactly that. Don't complain when you get exactly what you want.

People unassociated with a fraternity or sorority are referred to as "Goddamned Independents" or Geeds, for short. It implies that they're un-bro.

This series is over. I hope that brief period of excitement was fun for you, Red Wings fans.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||If the HOF only took one||
If the HOF only took one player at a postition, Ray Lewis would be in over Urlacher. But Urlacher was an extraordinary athlete who altered gameplans and took offenses out of primary reads because of his speed and knowledge of opposing offenses. There aren't stats for a quarterback having to go to a second read because Urlacher took away a TE's route at the last second. Situations like that are what made Urlacher great and it's why experts have been so effusive today.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Your opinion is bad. Urlacher||
Your opinion is bad. Urlacher is the best linebacker in Bears history. Singletary isn't even at the best LBs of all time table, Butkus maybe, and Lewis is definitely. The system Urlacher played in didn't lend itself to a lot of big hits and huge impacts from the middle linebacker spot but nobody could play and move like he did at his size. Like a poster said above he is 11th all time in tackles, made 8 Pro Bowls, and played on one of the most consistently strong defenses of the past decade. It's okay to take off your meatball glasses sometimes.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||OP sucks, this thread sucks,||
OP sucks, this thread sucks, and everyone who puts on their fan blinders on an issue is retarded. The Bulls' only chance to beat the Heat is to outphysical them. And don't compare the Bulls to the bullshit that the bad boys used to pull day in and day out.
It seems that very few people can ever get over their biases and enjoy a tough, competitive series for what it is anymore. All that many want to do is create narratives where none should exist.
Don't be an asshat and call the Bulls dirty thugs while praising what the Pistons did (with much more vigor) years ago.

This was a bad loss of a recruit to NW. Best of luck to him educationally, but I'm not going to pretend I wish him the same success athletically.
