|2 years 31 weeks ago||love watching this game again||
but hate listening to Chris Spielman because he's such a homer! Whats worse is everything he said he tried to counter with some meaningless information about Michigans D or something Denard did wrong (which wasnt much!)
|2 years 37 weeks ago||cant start own thread||
but just saw on espn.com (dont know if this got posted yet) Martin and Molk invited to Senior Bowl...congrats to those two!!!
Edit: and in the spirit of this thread according to stubhub Sugar bowl is #2 in ticket sales 1 obviously being the NCG.

|2 years 39 weeks ago||True but what I mean by it is||
True but what I mean by it is the "human" poll play in to the computer rankings so does that not also mean the computers include margin of victory depending on how the human votes go?
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Delete.||
|2 years 39 weeks ago||What hurt us more||
is the fact that the computers (judging from the recent experience) are style point favored. We didnt blow out Ohio. The reason the Big 12 and Pac 12 and SEC teams get favored is because of what they do to their opponents i.e. Ok St. blowing some team out by 50 points or LSU doing what they did to Arkansas...until we like Herbstreit and Craig James said play quality opponents and beat them convincingly we wont get those at large bids. Finally, if we play in the Cap One bowl i would be happy with that...as long as we win...GO BLUE!!!
|2 years 39 weeks ago||no worries||
Georgia loses to LSU Oklahoma loses to OSU we are good to go
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Not trying to be||
Not trying to be arguementative but are you sure about the coverage? I am in South Carolina and the ABC channel WOLO has Kentucky vs. Tennessee...figures being in SEC coverage area but want to make sure, if so I can stream it but would rather watch it on the $1500.00 HD tv i got rather than the 15" computer screen.

|2 years 41 weeks ago||Our defense is doing awesome||
Our defense is doing awesome this year!!! In addition we are ranked #16 in the current USA Today Coaches Poll. Top 5 is interesting to say the least...
Edit: In reference to an earlier thread started about the NC game, it very well could be an all SEC NC game...let the arguement about 2006 begin!!! LOL!
|3 years 4 days ago||Regarding Denard||
Mark Schlabach at ESPN did a "whats hot and whats not" list (follow link) and in the not column (strangely) was Denard. Then a little further down the team was listed under whats hot. Confusing because i am pretty sure Denard is part of the team???
Edit: it mentions denard being a mobile quarterback and being put into a "pro-style" offense. Why do people think that Denard won't flourish under Borges' teaching?
|3 years 12 weeks ago||I think the thing that OSU||
I think the thing that OSU fans and others associated with that university should be upset about is how Terelle Pryor has not once come out and made a pubic statement via press conference or radio interview regarding any of these issues and if he has I missed it. As a human being it is natural to be afraid or hesitant to own up to any wrong doing in fear of consequences or repercussions...but in this case with everything the public has seen thus far i think TP owes his fans and the university a well deserved apology...not to mention the other players involved. I think it shows cowardice and a complete lack of integrity to not do so. I am not sure if he realizes the situation that he has put not only the university in but also future student-athletes in as well. All the talk on this blog and others about this affecting recruiting, bowl bans and negative press has to be weighing on TPs mind. And, if he is any type of person he should feel extremely guilty and if he doesnt then he is a complete piece of garbage.

anyone got bullet in your head by Rage readily available....sounds evil but im glad hes dead now my brother in arms can come home!!!
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Im not from AA and this goes||
Im not from AA and this goes without saying, there is most likely a readily good food supply...clover, acorns etc over there and until they get run out by hunters or whoever they will keep showing up...is the rut up there the same as in Indiana usually Sep-Oct timeframe?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||General comments||
hence the Take it FWIW, but if he prefers to throw the ball quite a bit this could be a good thing if Borges takes us in that direction with his offense. Just sayin.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Take it FWIW||
Here is what Gunner Kiel said about UM on ESPN:
Michigan: "They have a new coaching staff and they are bringing a new offense on the table that's going to feature the passing game a lot. It's going to be a good system and they will be successful."
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Hmm...||
i see their line of thinking and while i understand it...i would think it would be detrimental to a recruit that he gets big time offers from like mentioned above Alabama, UM, OSU etc. So potentially a good player might not get the offers he needs due to the recruiting sites opinions of him thus hurting his recruitment?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||one part inparticular||
"He already has three 4-star recruits committed to his 2012 recruiting class, and of his six total commits, three hail from the state of Ohio."
Penny for Tressels thoughts after reading this...
|3 years 18 weeks ago||calm yourself for a second,||
calm yourself for a second, me using (like you said) homosexual references as a means to insult them and actually saying they are gay...you are right...are two different things and i should have chose my words a little better. Also, I am not seeking sympathy...like i said in the same thread i hold no ill will against those guys now because as you can imagine they got what was coming to them...they are military as well and believe me it hurt their careers to say the least...all I am trying to get across to you is that dont expect me not to be a little upset about it thats all...all this crap aside man we both can agree on this (i think). What Tressel did is extremely wrong and i like some others hopes he gets the punishment he deserves...its just a little more personal to me because as it was referred to earlier his fans (possibly like the ones who jumped me) think he is a "saint" thats all man. Not here to be a protagonist man, just love UM Football and obviously hate OSU.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Why would his rating drop||
Why would his rating drop just because of the amount of offers he has or has not got? I dont understand the rating system to begin with but i would think how well they performed in high school would be the best indication of there talent would it not?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Whats funny about you're||
Whats funny about you're reply is not once did you mention anything about my encounter with OSU fans...must be nice to only address one thing and totally ignore the other. Thus, giving you the right to be judgemental...ok, you got me i give up I should go straight to hell for using homophobic slurs and should be discharged this second for expressing an opinion. Look to put an end to this crap for good...you're right i am wrong I should be banned and sent to hell because you're so awesome and I am not. MY BAD!!!! Hit the gavel its over.

I met a guy on Monday who is an alumni class of '92 who owns a Goodyear tire business here in Sumter, SC...he was fairly upset because of this...RIP Jim

Please excuse the use of language and my transcedence of the boundaries of "civil discourse" but let me know what you think of OSU fans and their coach or whatever when three of them (just OSUfans) jump you for simply wearing a Michigan hat and shirt in a bar watching the 2010 Iowa game of all games(which unfortunately we lost) and I had not said a word to anyone. Not to mention in a bar in South Carolina where im stationed for crying out loud. I realize this is no excuse but pardon me if since then I have had a little bit of a "hatred" for them. Also, explain to my kids why dad couldnt take them fishing because all his knuckles on his right hand were broke. Lastly I fight for the freedom for you two and everyone else on here to be able to say what they want when they want. So, when what happened to me, happens to you, let me know how you feel...and then talk to me about being civil.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Whats worse||
is their fans (who unfortunately are human beings as well as we are) are stupid enough to believe any shit that comes out of his filthy sewer. I hold no ill will towards their fans...loyalty is a trait rarely observed anymore...but ignorance is no excuse.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||tOSU fans, alumni, supporters||
tOSU fans, alumni, supporters etc dont want to have this "smear" their image because they know we as the UM faithful will use it as ammunition everytime something happens from now on.
F!@# OSU and their alumni, fans they can have their cheating ass, gay sweatervest wearing faggot of a coach...i hope he does stay on so when we beat their ass this year it will make it all that much better!!!
Edit: My hatred for tOSU has no boundaries...
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Mauk & Kiel||
I hate to point out the obvious here being new and all but everything i have read says that both Mauk and Kiel are early ND leans. I realize the thought process might be that if one commits to ND before the other then whoevers left goes to UM or somewhere else. Also Mauk looks like he might fit at Mizzou due to him being in that 5 wide set in HS. So, if thats the case why worry about QB this year. Why not go and get a bunch of really good offensive lineman for DR/DG to stand behind the next couple of years and worry about the QB next year i.e. Shane Morris. Also, a couple of big DTs wouldnt hurt either...never does GO BLUE!
Edit: Mauk for those who dont know also has Mizzou as one of the schools he is considering, just sayin.

At the age of 5 my brother and grandfather sat me down in Marshall, MI and I watched my first Michigan game. September 14th 1985 vs. Notre Dame in which UM won 20-12. Since that day i have bled Maize n Blue. I have been through good times and bad with the team. I got drunk at 17 yrs old when they won the Rose Bowl in '97 and came to the brink of insanity when Crable got flagged for the illegal hit on Troy Smith in 06 essentially (not entirely) costing a chance at the national title game. Over the past 3-4 years i have watched in agony as our beloved Wolverines have been criticized and put down for the poor play on defense and on offense at times as well. I hope that Coach Hoke can reinstill the prominence known as Michigan Football. Never went to school at UM...wish i had.

I have two children of my own and if i know anything about teenagers its this...they dont know what the hell they want! Again, just relax.
