He was named the captain for the Montreal Canadiens. For those unaware of the significance of that it would similar to being named captian of the Yankees, Celtics or an elite Euro soccer team like Real Madrid or Man U.
|6 days 2 hours ago||The difference?||
Would there be much of a difference from swimming in heated pool on sunny day in October versus playing football in the driving rain on the 3rd weekend in November? Hell, it might be better swimming in the cold than playing on a turf field when the air temps are in the low 90's.
|1 week 3 days ago||MSU||
I've watched a few of their games while splitting with another and I don't think they've played a complete game yet. In the Western game they were up 27-10 at the half and played flat the second half before Oregon. Their defense held Oregons offense to 21 points which isn't the makings of a terrible defense. Air Force I didn't see but anytime Central plays MSU it's usually their best game of the year. Central more than held their own with Oklahoma State (lost by 11) and should have beat a Syracuse team (lost by 3) that lost by 10 points to LSU.

In fairness the kid at Western will be drafted into the NFL. Outside of maybe M, MSU, OSU and PSU every team in the conference would be see and upgrade at QB if he transfered to their program.
|1 week 5 days ago||The fabric texture?||
Its the only thing that I could think that makes them look purple in the sun.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Respectfully disagree||
If I had pick a trap game for MSU it would have been the Western game and in the 2nd half it kind of was. I felt that in the second half MSU actually looked a bit flat as if they were already on to Oregon. It was a primetime game at home for the Broncos and MSU had their home opener, coming off a big bowl win on national TV in primetime against a prime opponent. Thats now past so I don't expect MSU and their excellent front 7 to have much trouble with Air Force. If AF were an air raid offense then I would pick them to cover.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||A lot of MSU posts||
It seems there is an MSU related post on here almost everyday as of late.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||This post||
It reminds me of the old Northwestern chant of "it's alright, it's ok, you're going to work for us someday!" when they were down by 30 against Michigan. When NW was good for a few years I never heard that chant at Ryan Field.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||This isn't rivalry stuff||
This is a chickenshit move seeing how it's not Michigan v. MSU this week. It's just a lame attempt if it's not during the actual game week. If MSU painted the "M" on the diag in July everyone would call it lame and for good reason.

The Lions went 4-0 one year in preseason and then went 0-16 when it counted.

gives no shits and loves to troll media morons.

That upper deck has an ok veiw but the ramp getting up and down from there is just stupid. It's easily the worst walk as a sports fan I've made. The rest of the stadium is old and the non-crazy fans will openly admit it. I sat in the north endzone last year and it's messes with your mind that the rest of the stadium and that section are actually part of the same place.
|10 weeks 3 hours ago||Agreed||
A buddy and I went a few years ago and came away with the same opinon. It's like W. Layfayette high school donated their old bleachers for their visitor section. When I told the guys at our tailgate they laughed since my experience in 2010 was similar to theirs... in the 1980's.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Thats ESPN||
Thats pretty much how ESPN handles everything. It's the only reason why First Take is still on the air.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Don't care||
As a Michigan fan I don't give a shit on how other teams handle issues like this. I care about how Michigan handles their own business. It's not like this issue made anyone here change their mind regarding MSU.

Don't worry about the source. They've gotten a lot better over the past couple of years and I love their Team Stream app.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||This should happen more||
The media morons are comical and rarely offer anything other than the same generic questions three different ways, ask subjects they know the coach won't touch (ex. injuries) or in the case of "shock jock" sports shows (ex. Cowherd, Mike Valenti) just make noise. More coaches should go the route of Harbaugh today, Popovich at the half or Dantonios "next question" because many of the reporters deserve it.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Read about this||
There are articles about these rings and it said MSU puts the score of their second biggest win (after the bowl game) on their bowl rings. Their Rose Bowl ring celebrates the win over Ohio State in the B1G championship. Ohio State also does this and has the score of the Michigan v. OSU game from the 2008 season on their conference championship rings. I don't really read that much into it.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Man||
This whole Nike/Addias thing is beyond stupid. I hope Michigan wears friggn' Russell or Skechers just to screw with some of the zealots.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Harbaugh||
Where does he fit in based on your criteria of "class act" with some of his on field conduct?
|18 weeks 2 days ago||"fans"||
Many fans have a difficult time with the fact the coaches of rival schools usually get along just fine. They have the best idea of what the other coach is going through with their own fans and rival fans spracking off.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Recruiting||
That's an easy one to get around since Michigan will be wearing Nike all the recruits in the country will want to play for Michigan! Nike solves all the ills of the football team and that extends to all other sports too! Because Nike!
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed plus||
They also were without a top flight forward. You could argue the merits of Franzen but regardless of that his contract is equal to many very good players and in the salary cap era that was a hit too. Also they were out another high priced player in Weiss simply because he just doesn't seem to fit anywhere. The Wings have about $9 million tied up in those two players that combined played just two games in the playoffs (both Weiss of course) so if you could substitute them for at least one really good player it couldhave been a different story.
It's all hypotheticals but I've thought about it since game 5.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Sorry||
I think we hear way too much about of a 26 year old, first year year postion coach who was hired on pure nepotisim. I cannot think of any other position coach that has ever garnered so much attention.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||haha!||
AZ is pretty much Oregon south in the Pac12 with 3 helmets, 3 jerseys and 3 sets of pants. RR also had the yellow jerseys are WV.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||100% Correct||
I've read recently that Dantonio had direct talks with Nike about getting the green pants they first wore against Michigan for 2013 game in EL. Maybe Brady was indifferent (likely) or Brandon has more choices in uniform design (also likely).

The license plate thing bothers you immensely. We know because you cannot shut up about it as if it's a legitimate problem under any circumstance.
|24 weeks 1 day ago||Yup||
This happens when kids commit when they're juniors and sophmores.

Both were at football games. In 2005 a group of Michigan students were hurling half full Absopure water bottles as well as batteries at the Notre Dame visitors section. For whatever reason the visitors were seated right next to the students in the north endzone, the following year they were not.
The other was a Michigan and MSU fan having sex in the back of a Ford Edge on AA Golf and Outing. Techincally that wasn't at the game though since it was before so...
