Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
|1 day 4 hours ago||Agreed||
This ones gonna be tough
|2 days 4 hours ago||Thanks||
...I needed that, as my fuse is short, thanks largely to our shit football team.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Big East||
...they don't have fouls in the Big East
|2 days 4 hours ago||Fuck Villanova||
This game was shit...hate Big East style basketball
|3 days 8 hours ago||I'm sorry but||
Removing the letter "M" from all words just makes you sound like a hillbilly....oh wait.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Could be||
Hard to say what he meant exactly, but it does give me the impression that he only offered to Hoke.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Link||
|3 days 9 hours ago||I think it was||
All that glitters is not gold or some BS like that....I specifically remember him saying things to "sell" why Hoke was the better option.
|3 days 9 hours ago||And...||
Better start thinking about what else those luxury suites can be used for, cuz no one I buying them to watch football.
|3 days 9 hours ago||If it's Schiano...||
I'm sorry, but I'm not even watching until we get someone in the AD that has a clue, cuz that would be worse than just about any hire I could think of. At that point, why not save money and get a coach that's got a winning record in HS? ...it's that pointless!
|3 days 10 hours ago||Agreed||
...and the resources you have at UM are incredible. Honestly, it's a far better time to come than when RRod did.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Seriously!||
I couldn't have responded better. What a horrible use of the English language.
|5 days 5 hours ago||They||
Stole defeat from the jaws of victory. This team reminds me of the Lions of old. If we don't get a good coach, I might just stop watching...and not from anger, just cuz I have other stuff I'd rather do....watching today was boring.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Can't edit on iphone||
....and NW (if Ill wins).
|5 days 5 hours ago||Bowl eligible||
So, if Illinois wins next week, the only teams in the B1G that are not bowl eligible will be: Indiana, Purdue, and Michigan. WTF has happened to this program?!?!
|1 week 6 days ago||Go Devils!||
|1 week 6 days ago||I don't watch the NFL||
...but if I did, I'd watch New England or Jacksonville, not Houston or Cleveland.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Agree||
It's definitely derogatory...and IMO shows a lack of leadership, or at least good leadership. I understand the pride that comes with being an athlete and all the hard work that goes into it, but at the end of the day, athletes are entertainers and if the product they're producing doesn't interest their fans/customers, eventually they stop paying for the product. Sure, college athletics is a little different, because the fans often have a personal tie to the university and/or players, but it the product isn't that good and then the entertainers start complaining about the customers....well, that's not a good recipe for success in any venture. IMO, with good leadership in place, this type of stuff never develops within the ranks.

Good call...Only issue for me is pleated khakis. All mine are flat front....hmm.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I actually would have been ok with this for a game||
This is one of the few alternates I would have been ok with at UM, since the yellow was originally leather and the correlation to the history at UM. With that said, I'm not a fan of us doing it anymore, as I still think we need to be leaders, not followers.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Interesting....but||
This is interesting and I like the mathematical look at the candidates, but its only as good as how you weight the criteria. In looking over the matrix as a whole, I have a hard time placing 20 points on just Offense or Defense, when Coaching Success is only 25. This means a fantastic coordinator could be valued almost as highly as an incredible coach....and since we are looking for a head coach and not a coordinator, kind of seems like the O and D are weighted too heavily or the Coaching Success is underrated. It would be interesting to see which of the non-Coaching Success criteria actually correlated the best with Coaching Success after a coach was hired. For instance, apply this formula to all head coaches to the year prior to their start and see which ones actually should be weighted the highest. In the mean time, I'm having a hard time with seeing RRod the second highest rated...and what it delivered for us the first couple years, without a good DC to support his O.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Seriously||
WTF? An apology for putting a tent stake in the grass? It's not like they ran to mid-field and took a leak on the "S" or something. I'm surprised he didn't apologize for scoring a TD. How weak.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Agree||
Dantonio is a tool. This was so blown out of proportion, it's ridiculous. That wasn't on the "S" and I doubt hardly anyone really noticed. Dantonio just enjoys being a prick. This is just one more reason we need to restore our program....so we can put MSU back where they belong too and shut Dantonio up.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Well said||
I completely agree. I think we still have a QB that doesn't fit the system (ex: Pro Set needs a QB that can read a D and progress through reads)...and a coaching staff that doesn't develop players, but the talent is there, especially on Defense (which does get some development).
|4 weeks 4 days ago||No kidding||
I'm so sick and tired of the constant misinterpretation of what Bo meant when he said that. If people used half their brain, they'd realize the way it's being used now, doesn't make any sense at all, because under that context, Bo wasn't a Michigan Man. Ugh, the lemming mindset these days is astonishing.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Well said||
Seriously, couldn't agree more!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I'm with you||
I wasn't before, but it's almost embarrassing to admit we are trying....time to move on and admit we are transitioning.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I agree, but...||
One of the great things about Michigan was that we were consistently good. Now, we're just hoping to be relevant again and we're saying "hey, it happens to the best of them". Sorry, but I don't like being like everyone else. I loved being the one school that was always good. Well, so much for that anymore, cuz Rome has fallen.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I'm angry because...||
I feel like we were sold a bill of goods when DB hired Hoke (and even more so when DB was touted as being such a great hire and that he'd get us back on path). Now, we may not be able to get any coach we want, but with the money this school has, there is no excuse to not at least get one that is average. I thought RRod needed to go, because his D was embarrassing, but Hoke has taken things to an all new level of suck. I supported DB and Hoke from day 1, but DB has no clue how to pick a football coach, is doing tons of stuff to irritate fans and this team just keeps getting worse. I'd love to not let it get to me, but dammit, I love Michigan and Michigan football...and this is frustrating and embarrassing!
