Stauskas....Will continue to show the nation that he is not just a shooter.

At this point, I think it'd be beneficial to not accept any bowl game invite. This team, from the coaches to the players, don't deserve a bowl game. And this is Michigan; we shouldn't want to play in a crappy bowl game.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I was at that ND/Minnesota||
I was at that ND/Minnesota game. Minnesota came out fast and physical in the 1st, just missing on some quality scoring changes. After the 1st intermission, it's like a whole different Gopher team came out of the locker room. They were slow, couldn't get out of the zone, bad passes, etc.
I was hoping to see some high quality, fast paced college hockey. Instead, I saw a slow game bogged down by offsides and penalties. It's too bad. Let's just hope the Gophers can come back and win tomorrow.

The sister of a friend of mine at work (who recently quit) is in a relationship with Mitch. Once I found out, I of course asked about his condition and status. What he told me two weeks ago was that is was worse than what was being reported. He didn't know much outside of that general statement, but it didn't sound good.
Even if he does come back, he may not have the same energy and play style as he did last year.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Yes Auburn was a spread, but||
Yes Auburn was a spread, but they were a run first spread. Teams that excel at running the ball seem to have success against the smaller Oregon D. And that enables them to control the clock and keep that Oregon O off the field.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||There was equal pushing by||
There was equal pushing by both sides. But there was an obvious pull of the jersey by the defender, which will draw a flag every time. I think it should have been a holding, but they called a PI. He reached out and grabbed the inside of the receivers jersey.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Everyone needs to remember||
Everyone needs to remember that Oregon plays a speed based defense. When they face a physical team, they tend to struggle.
L to Stanford last year 17-14
L to LSU 40-27 in 2011
L to Auburn 22-19 in 2010
But they excel against teams similar to them, ie Oklahoma State and Kansas State and USC

Shoulda just been a holding. Obvious tug on the jersey.

That was a mac truck sized hole. I remember those days at Michigan... *sigh*

aka what happens when Oregon faces a real challenge.

Wow. 3rd and 1 and Stanford goes for the bomb. What a throw and catch; and play call.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||These refs seem to be||
These refs seem to be pro-Baylor so far. Let's see if this keeps up. Tons of non-calls on blatent holds when Baylor has the ball, and a couple of questionable calls against the Sooners.
Stoops is gonna let the refs know this at halftime for sure.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Doesn't matter who is playing||
Doesn't matter who is playing qb, rb, or any offensive position right now. With the playcalling of Borges, it doesn't matter who is on the field.
And why throw Morris into this mess right now and potentially mess with him. Just let Gardner take the beating the rest of the season, and start over next year.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Fire Borges and Funk. Today's||
Fire Borges and Funk. Today's playcalling was worse than last year against ohio. Embarrassing. What a joke. We are lightyears away from where we want to be. Sad to say, we are lower tier in the Big-10 with these fools at the helm of this team.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I'd like to see more quick||
I'd like to see more quick throws. Slants, screens, outs, etc. Just get the ball down field in a hurry. Can't keep going backwards. Quick hits, then hit em deep.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||MSU did beat Georgia in the||
MSU did beat Georgia in the Capital One Bowl to finish 11-3 in 2011. That's a pretty big stage for Big-10 and SEC fans. Outside of this game (and beating Boise St and TCU), there isn't much for MSU fans to brag about on the National scale.

I don't think that this should be front page material.

I bet he is happy to not be playing for this guy anymore:
|21 weeks 6 days ago||You are the only one||
I am sure of this. He is way too slow. Especially in the East, where every team has speed instead of playing physical hockey. Bertz doesn't fit in the East...nah...fit in the NHL anymore. If he can't forecheck (too slow), can't backcheck (too slow), never has the puck on his stick unless someone like Dats gets it for him, then what good is he? For shoot-outs only?
|21 weeks 6 days ago||That is true||
He can't be cut while he is on the injured list. Once he gets healthy, I believe we can do whatever we want with him.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||My lines||
Hank - Pavs - Abs (only b/c Babs loves him here; I'd prefer Nyquist or Tatar)
Mule - Weiss - Alfie
Miller - Helm (crossing fingers) - Eaves (these 3 are great together)
Nyquist - Andersson - (one of) Tootoo/ Bertz/Sammy (whover is left on the team)
Smith - Kronwall
Ericsson - Kindl
DeKeyser - Quincey
Gotta split up Krons/Ericsson b/c they are just too slow. Need to mix in speed with the big bodies.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||I think||
I think everyone is being way way way too hard on Smith. Losing DeKeyser really hurt us in the playoffs. Smith wasn't perfect, but he was trying dam hard against the like of Kane, Bickell, and Toews. He was over his head, yes, but he still had his moments where he shined in that series. I'd put more of the blame on the slow forwards that couldn't help a lick in our own end, which would result in a Smith vs 2 Hawks situation.
Smith will be part of the future of the Wings D. Him and Kindl are the offensive D-men, and Lashoff and DeKeyser are the defensive defensemen of the group.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||I agree||
I agree with everything except trading Smith. Fast, skilled, offensively minded defensemen don't come around very often. He is going to be a great fit next to either Kindl or DeKeyser for the next 10+ years.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Invest in a young defenseman, you say?||
DeKeyeser - 23
Kindl - 26
Lashoff - 22
Smith - 24
We also have a couple of big time D-men prospects in GR. So a young defensemen is not entirely something we need to focus on. We have a very very strong Top 4 all under 26 (once we lock up Smith, of course).
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Wow||
Lots of ideas you threw out there. Discussion commence:
1. Brunner: No; will explain later
2. Boyes: No. Don't need another 30+ forward.
3. Antropov: No. Gagne: No. Don't need anymore forwards
4. Don't bring back Cleary: Completely agree; don't need any more 30+ forwards.
5. Young kids. Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes again. But, you chose the wrong young kids. We NEED to resign Smith, Nyquist, and Andersson. ASAP.
And as for the young kids in GR, this whole group of kids will be ready next year (and some are even ready right now)
Tatar, Mursak, Sheahan, Jurco, Ferraro, and Glendening. We have too many aging forwards, with no room for these kids.
6. Correct; we don't need any more help on defense.
7. That would be a very terrible trade. We don't want to lose all our young kids for Stamkos.
My final thought regarding what the Wings need to do is to make a trade to clear up some cap space and open up some forward spots.
We only have 2.3 mil to resign Smith, Nyqust, and Andersson. I think we need 6 mil to cover all three. The way we clear up the necessary space is to trade Emmerton and 1 of Tootoo/Bertz/Sammy; and in return we get some kids for GR or some draft picks. That way we clear up cap space and open up forward spots for all the talented youth we have in GR.
My Pipe Dream is getting rid of Bertz, Sammy, and Tootoo and getting a couple of 4th rd draft picks.

Go Heat! I want LeBron to get more Championships! And NBA Finals MVP's. My love for the Heat is two-fold. 1. I love LBJ. 2. I want all the Heat/LBJ-haters to have to see him win back-to-back Chips. That would really sting all those Chicago/LA/Boston/Cleveland fans.
