Count me in as a member of the Fire Borges Club. I was willing to give him a pass until this b.s. today. As another poster pointed out, the simple way to beat this defense, given M's craptacular o-line, was a quick passing game--short drops and passes to the flat with screens or crossing routes mixed in. When we tried that we scored a td. Great, but then what do we do? Back to running up the middle against a stacked box, and long developing routes which relied on our 200lb running back blocking a monster de--things our offense has proven it cannot do. And youth is NOT an excuse anymore for a line that god-awful after 9 games. And to say, again, "They didn't execute" is nonsense. You have to put your people in a position to succeed, not fail. And calling for long-developing routes, time and again, when you know the line can't block that long, and your rb can't block at all, is putting players in a position to fail. The final straw for me was the 2nd turnover--running twice in a row, when they haven't been able to run the ball all damn day. Fire him and start over.

Wouldn't it be awesome if Maryland joined the Big Ten? Man, that would be cool!

I'd love to go to the game tonight, but I won't be able to make it. The football team is playing tomorrow and early tailgates rock!

Another Yankee fan here...Go Cards. As much as I hated the sox before this year, the hipster beards--and their dandyish obsession with them--have pushed it over the top.

"...they called it 'Operation Mongoose.'"
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Indeed...||
As a Yankee fan, I'm relieved that people can finally see through all the the b.s. feel-good "red sox nation" propaganda. That bleacher dickbrain is the true face of the sox fan. And it is why Yankee fans loathe them. For this series...Go Tigers.

He only managed to win the Big East championship--and the BCS slot that went with it--after Miami (YTM), VaTech, and BC left the conference for the ACC. His WVU teams were firmly entrenched behind all three before then. I actualy went to WVU's game against BC in Morgantown the year before the Big 3 left for greener pastures. BC curb-stomped WVU with a Big Ten approach--pro-style, run-heavy offense, big rugged defense. I had no Michigan affiliation when he was hired (I'm now a grad--my first year was RR's last) and had no dog in the hunt, but I thought that hire was a huge mistake at the time.

I committed. I'm in my 40s--and Michigan isn't actually recruiting me. I just got caught up in the moment.

If they're going that route with their helmets, they should have a waggy tail and a stencil of a dog's anus on the back.

No cell phones. I even note this in the syllabus, in bold. I catch you playing with a phone I mark you absent which could effect a grade. Seeing a kid play with a phone in class bugs the crap out of me, but my classes are participatory and not lecture style. So I need my kids to be awake, plus, I am going to see that. And I mean, come on--if you're a college kid, you're prolly texting someone you saw ealier and will see again in twenty minutes. I think of this as my part in helping this generation learn to focus on one thing for more than 5 minutes.

Played with guts and heart. They made us proud, and they better come back to town with their heads up. Go BLUE!!!

Actually, given the distance between UM and Detroit, that final would be UGa vs. UM. Which further highlights the silliness of the Bing-bashing here.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||That's what I said.||
Does anyone seriously think that all of Ohio suddenly "likes" Michigan or has switched allegiances to us since OSU crapped out?

That kind of physical and verbal abuse is just unacceptable.The dude needs therapy.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||The writer is a little dim||
"We are, it seems, a nation of fair-weather fans (when it comes to March Madness, at least). Our allegiances change as circumstances change. It's always been that way -- and the whole structure of a tournament, of course, encourages fans to funnel their enthusiasms toward the teams that win. The difference now is that our fickleness, whether it's natural or structural or both, can now -- like so much else -- be tracked. And then presented back to us in a colorful chart."
But...no. If this data comes from facebook "likes" this doesn't mean that fans from other schools suddenly love UM and have piled on our page. It just means that you're dealing with a smaller number set with the other teams removed--this then reflects the distribution of the same "likes' as in the Sweet 16 map but with the "likes" of 12 other teams removed.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||I wish him well too||
I hope that Clarett can complete the job of getting his life on track. He sounds like a changed guy and good for him. No reason to keep mocking the guy ten years down the line. I'm guessing that most of us wouldn't want to held to dumb crap we did at 20 forever.

"Baller" is spelled incorrectly. The correct spelling is, of course, "balla."

I love UVM, but if Michigan plays them in any sport, Go Blue all the way. Of course this isn't the same conflict since UVM dropped their football program in '74, plays in an only-the-tourney-champ-gets-a-bid type conference in basketball and generally sucks at hockey--which is the sport most there are really passionate about.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, I didn't think that Wisconsin story was funny either||
The bit about Webber swigging from a bottle in a brown-paper bag is pretty offensive.
