Confirmed, your Jim Delany's son. ;)
I can only say that I'm really really glad I don't have the same priorities you do.
|6 days 6 hours ago||For me||
For me it's all about risk management. So lets take a look at things.
First, even as you mention , MSU is likely going to the rose bowl with a W or an L in this game. So since that's going to happen we can ignore the outcome of the game for the risk of MSU going to the rose bowl. So , for me, that's not even a factor.
Then you have recuriting. A MSU win could impact our recuriting a bit when going up against MSU, no doubt about that. Butt... it probably won't have any long lasting effects. There is more holding back MSU's recuriting efforts than their trips to the Rose Bowl. So that's a very small factor for an MSU win.
The flip side is an OSU win. Well lets take a look at that. We know if they lose they will not be going to an NC game... we know if they win there is a damn good chance they will be in the NC game. The risk of OSU being in a NC game is HUGE to me... Seeing them win a NC bothers me 100000x more than MSU making it to the rose bowl. So this is clearly a factor for me. It's nice to see you're confident they'll lose... but yeah, reality says they can easily win one too.
Then you have recuriting. OSU is clearly more of a rival in recuriting than MSU. Them just making the NC game will boost their efforts, winning it will do even more. So another huge factor for an OSU win.
Throw in the fact that OSU is our #1 Rival and it's really not even close. I don't get how anyone could root for OSU in this game... but hey.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Wait||
Wait... so you'd rather OSU have a shot at winning the NC than an SEC team.
Are you Jim Delaney's son or something?
I would take an SEC championship any and every year of an OSU one. That's not even close for me... I get conference pride,but not when it's OSU that's playing.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||No||
No, it's a bad thing.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Soccer?||
I've certainly heard reports about CTE being found in former Hockey Players, but I must admit I haven't heard anything about Soccer Players. Granted, this isn't necessarily a topic i'm extremely well versed on.
Do you have a link to an article about soccer being bad for the brain?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Sorry||
Sorry, but if you "hate" Borges... you probably should take a step away from watching football for a bit.
You can be very displeased with the job he's done. You can hate his offensive style, hell you can even dislike the man (Although, I don't really know why you would. He's a pretty great guy.).
But to hate someone, just because the team you root for is struggling? That's pretty fucked up man.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Yeahhh||
If "RESULTS" mean anything, you can see the two situations are nothing alike. Hoke will not be touched this offseason, even if they lose out.
1-2 vs MSU
1-1 vs OSU
2-1 vs ND
1-1 in bowl games, including a BCS win.
15 - 22
0-3 vs MSU
0-3 vs OSU
2-1 vs ND (They were some awesome wins at least)
0-1 in bowl games, including a dumpster fire against Miss State
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Probably||
Probably because there is a lot more to a defense than the number of sacks or ints they get.

|9 weeks 1 day ago||I love Raiola||
I love Raiola, I can also easily see him doing something like that.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||The right call was made||
I saw that too, and the right call was made.
The play went to the right hash and the playside ref spotted the ball as they're suppose to do. They did not steal a first down for NW.
Not to mention, the right call was made in the NW game. There was one angle where the yellow lines were tricky (You can actually see the yellow/blue lines moving during the play, they weren't reliable from that angle) that made it seem like he may have gotten a first down, other than that there really was nothing that made it seem taht way.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I'm bored||
So I'll respond.
1.) I have a hard time thinking this scenario is really going to happen. There are a lot of "ifs" in there and at the end of the day you're just making a slippery slope argument that currently doesn't have a ton of facts to support it.
2.) I sorta would need to know what safeguard thoughts Brian was thinking when he said it. But if it were me I would attempt to work with the NFL so only NFL Approved agents are allowed. Doesn't seem as if it would be that difficult to do. It would not prevent shady agents from sneaking around though... but I again don't really see this as a very strong argument.
3.) This seems to be another claim with little evidence to support it. Why do you think this would happen? Is point shaving rampent in the pros where people can easily hide the extra income? Is there any proof that this would happen? I don't really see it anywhere.

He understands that bowties are cool.
|13 weeks 20 hours ago||thanks||
posted from my phone. I take it that post doesn't show up on the site?
|13 weeks 21 hours ago||Why?||
I'm always curious why people think he's going to get killed. I haven't really heard a good reason yet. so I'm curious if you may have a good reason.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
Are you actually trying to say that Brady Hoke, and a vast majority of Michigan fans, are calling OSU Ohio because OSU was sometimes referred to as Ohio in the 60's and 70's by the radio announcer, or because OSU occasionally was referred to as Ohio in the early 80's?
If so.... you be crazy man... you be crazy.
If not, than what's your point?
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah||
Yeahhh about that: http://mgoblog.com/content/michigan-museday-meets-michigan-replay-part-2
|22 weeks 4 days ago||may I ask||
why you wouldn't email them even if there wasn't a reasonable chance?
I guess I just don't see a single reason not to contact them. worse case they say no and you're right back to where you are now.
|32 weeks 4 days ago||Logic||
Lets take a few rumors, some weak circumstantial evidence, and jump to conclusions. Nothing bad ever comes of doing that, and it's oh so logical.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||NHL 93||
Isn't the sky blue ice NHL '93 and NHL '94 is more or less white..ish...y? Or was that 94 -> 95
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Personally||
Personally, I really don't think that the RB positon is as wide open as you do. I highly doubt we'll see Drake be the #2 RB next year. I think people are ignoring a Fitz a bit to much as well, it's one thing to have a few comments about you (And outside this one I haven't heard a ton about Drake) and another to have on field results.
Granted, Fitz is coming off a gnarly leg injury. But I still think our Fitz will without question be in our top 2 RBs, and in all likelyhood I think he'll be the starter, atleast when the season starts.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||No||
No, the Alumni ran onto the field and the students yelled down in front.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||That's Fair||
That's fair that it's your view. I have no doubts that it will be far worse than some playoff proponents think.
My thought? I lived through the Horror... I can live through anything. :)
|1 year 16 weeks ago||I must say, I do appreciate||
I must say, I do appreciate the honesty. :) I wasn't necessarily trying to call you mentally weak as much as your view of this topic is mentally weak.
The "I told you so" in that scenario still doens't make sense. Unless they said "That won't happen." or "It won't really suck." Otherwise... it just doesn't make any sense. It's used when someone disagrees with you, and then it turns out you were right. Using it against someone who didn't disagree with you on that subject doesn't fit.
Also, the scenario you are describing can happen in any scenario there is... it happens every year whenever we go into a game as a large favorite. What does it matter if we are the #1 seed who is "clearly better" than the #4 seed and lose to them, thus costing us our National Championship hopes in a playoff system. Or being the #1 seed and losing to an unranked Illinois team during the season, costing us our National Championship hopes in a BCS system (But very possibly making the playoff system)?
That risk of extreme disappointment is the nature of the beast of being a sports fan, your dominate team can, and will, lose in situations that will cost them everything. Introducing a playoff doesn't move the needle on that situation what so ever. And lastly... if they lose to a team in a playoff that they were clearly better of, they also probably weren't the best team that year as well.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||This may come off harsh.||
Your entire post is "I'm mentally weak." I mean, it really is... You're against a playoff because it means the best team is more likely to win and an unworthy Michigan team may not be able to sneak into the National Championship. And because if that team is worthy, you don't want to deal with the emotions if they lose because it's more difficult when your team is the higher seed.
None the less... what about the inverse? I mean, you're right that losing sucks, there really isn't much debate about that. But winning is pretty awesome too. And while losing as the higher seed also really sucks... winning as the underdog is really awesome as well.
So if a Michigan team gets that 4th seed and ends up winning the NC, what's going to be your argument then?
Also, saying I told you so if one of your scenarios happens doesn't really make much sense...
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Yup||
Women aren't Men. Double standards in many situations exist for a reason... there is no reason for a man to put his hands on a woman in anytype of aggressive fashion. I don't care what the relationships are between the two.. coach/athlete wife/husband boss/employee... it doesn't matter. A man doesn't put his hands on a woman.
So yes, while this is a double standard that if a man was in the same situation it would be viewed drastically differently, there is a very valid reason for that.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||What's this logic||
Logic and reasoning? Psssh! What's this doing in a topic about recuriting?
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Cause||
Cause they base their class rankings on more than just the number of top 150 players a school has?
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Gotcha||
|1 year 18 weeks ago||What was the stupid decision?||
Are you saying Silas trasnfering to USC was a stupid decision, and that he doesn't have a good head on his shoulders? I'm honestly not really following... but it sure sounds that way and I don't understand why you'd think that.
