and just like a racist you are trying to give justification for treating people with hate and disdain. When you are arguing which hate is more tolerable you are a huge part of the problem.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Not sure this angle helps||
When watching the game, I thought the call, had it been on #7 was legit. From this angle, it appears the defender is trying to beat him to a spot on the slant (the broadcast angle was form overhead at the opposite sideline). He begins to jump the route and get under it by going over it before contact is made (if that makes sense). The defender on Fuller also initiated contact....he squared up and jammed the receiver and appears to be pulling Fuller down and forward as the ball goes in the air. If refs are going to allow DBs to play physical at the line of scrimmage to disrupt routes, don't they also have to allow the recievers to fight through that pressure?

her post-ND hangover won her some fans. When MGoBrewMom gives you "the look" you better heed, because a firestorm is brewing.
Edit: I am just here for the love though, so let it rain!
|1 week 5 days ago||Forgot about Fisher...||
BWC and Q-Wash...no telling how that might have worked out and the same with Mealer/Barnum/Miller. Would RR have left Schofield at guard?...who knows...but that would have left us pretty weak at 2 OLine positions (we could argue better coaching, I suppose).
Would Denard have made it through the beatings he was taking and would Devin have been serviceable running RRs full offense (I don't recall him ever looking great when RR was still her,e though we know he has great athleticism....he still seems to struggle with the read option, in my opinion. To me he seems to predetermine what he is going to do pre-snap instead of reading it as I've seen him give it several times when the DE is crashing hard)?
I certainly felt at the time RR needed to move on, and I was a supporter until the Miss St game, though I would have been fine if he had stayed. I would love to see Hoke win out and turn the corner, but I have serious doubts. I think the program is much better off acknowledging its mistakes (not necessarily publicly) making the needed changes and moving forward. The Leaders and Best should not be looking back on past failures and get stuck in what might have been.
RR has learned from his time at UM, that is good. RR has moved on from UM, that is good. RR has found success, that is good. UM needs to do the same.
|1 week 5 days ago||How about year 5...||
if RR had gotten and done well in year 4? Would that hole in the OLine recruiting have miraculously fixed itself? RR was set up for the same drop that Hoke had.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||We either need to credit DB||
We either need to credit DB for improved facilities in the non-revenue sports or not. If DB is credited with it, fine blame him for trying to pay for it, if this was in the works under Martin, don't you think he should receive the blame for the need to increase the athletics budget?

|2 weeks 5 days ago||Well...||
we aren't really discussing rawk musick and Special K, fees to be on the season ticket wait list, extra fees for the privelege of buying season tickets, GA for students, raising student ticket prices by 30%, being frisked going into games, bans on seat cushions, etc. We were discussing a student athlete's tweet about fans in response to a large and very loud contigent of fans who are making the players feel isolated. You have a right to voice your displeasure about things, just make sure you are doing it through proper channels and don't cross the line and go from human decency to douchebaggery (not saying you are.....but others certainly have).
|2 weeks 5 days ago||This says it all....||
"Only if you believe that the money you pay (and have paid over years) for tickets, souvenirs, special events, fund raisers, etc., mean you have no voice or say in how you are to be treated as a member of the Michigan community whatsoever."
If you are giving money to "have a voice or say" into the program, you have the wrong idea. If the fans do not act civilly, they should have no expectation of being treated in a civil way. Why is it so hard for you all to understand why the players might feel this way? Why is it that the fans have the "right" to spout their opinions, but players should remain silent because the fans might be offended? The majority of those posting in this thread have the mentality that they can treat others any way they feel fit, but they demand that they themselves be treated with the utmost respect. You are all wrong! And it says more about your character than Cleary's.

I sure could use some lovin'!

An injury timeout requires a player leave the field for a play.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The question...||
is not whether he could have called a timeout, the question was whether calling a timeout would allow Devin to play the next play.
An injury timeout would not have, so politicing for that call would not have fit the context.
Perhaps Hoke wanted to ensure that if he called the timeout the official was going to make the correct call. Since the side judge told him "no" Hoke obviously was correct to ask, even though he knew the rule.
When you are a coach, you do not automatically expect that all the officials interpret the rules correctly so often times you ask.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||This is what I am waiting for....||
The entire mob mentaility strikes me as similar to the Duke Lacrosse allegations. There are a ton of people on this site, in the media, and in homes all over the country who are willing to destroy a man's reputation over this situation and are completely unwilling to wait for the facts to come out. Why is it that people don't want to wait? What if you are successful in your efforts to get rid of Hoke for this and it comes out, as there has been some whispers, that Shane was not concussed? Is this "The Michigan Difference"? Is this what "The Leaders and Best" resort to? End justifies the means? Is this how you define a "Michigan Man"?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah...||
I was thinking that comment was more apropos of the early 90s!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||For some reason....||
that is mesmerizing!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||GO BLUE!!!||
It is Friday, I've already had an administrator and police pull one kid out of my first class this morning, so my weekend is alrighty starting off with a little excitement. Go Blue! Lay down the Law on dem Utes tomorrow!! 42 - 14
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I was listening...||
to the radio broadcast, so I did not see the sequence of events, but I will say that Bandy and Dierdorf were both caught off guard by the delay of game call and laid it at the refs for not making the team aware that the clock was running. I don't know if the team has someone designated to watch the game clock at all times, but I would think that when you are accustomed to the ref letting you know they are winding the clock 100% of the time in that situation, you are not really too concerned with it. If the refs were trying to prove a point to the coaches, considering the game situation, that was a pretty bad call on their part as it was a 1 possession game and the penalty took them out of field goal range.

low 90s and 110% humidity....is that good enough weather? I can't wait until autumn gets here........in January!!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Let's Go Boys!||
Get back on track by dropping 50+ on Miami (NTM) and putting up 600+ yards in offense. A shut out would be the cherry on top!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Ha ha ha....||
you did get a bit feisty over the weekend! Hopefully you rehydrated over the week.

did it last night too. Its a zone blitz, but I'm sure you knew that.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly!||
How many times over the past few years has someone on this blod stated that they are glad our coaches do not act like Brian Kelly. Now, we have a segment here that are stating that Hoke needs to take the kid gloves off and light a fire under these kids.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||If it is the play||
I am thinking of, Cole picked up an outside rusher (stepping out) and Mags stepped down to give inside help to Miller but didn't really engage. I haven't gone back and watched the play and don't know what the line call was, but my guess is that is not on Cole but either Mags was to step out and a RB pick up the inside or vice versa.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah....||
you don't need to keep those feathers, they aren't hiding any balls!

Hoping to see a frequent deployment of Grimace tomorrow evening!!! Go Blue! Defeather the chickens!

does not have to be sexual in nature though we typically use it that way today. It can simply refer to a strong desire or a longing.

that this coaching staff would not make it perfectly clear to a young man who had recently decommitted from one school what their policy was before accepting his verbal committment.
