And sorry for not looking in the FAQs first... This site rocks, BTW.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Sorry to be obtuse||
But what is Special K? (Relative newb who's trying to learn the language of the forum.)
|10 weeks 3 days ago||We needed that one badly||
Glad to see this team fight through and get the W. We still get killed on the boards...
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Exactly||
I think the guy is a total dick and comes across as a hater. But he's obviously intelligent, a fierce competitor, and a solid leader. By comparison BH seems like a jr high gym teacher.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Spot on||
Exactly the argument I've been trying to make with some friends of mine about the state of the program. The program at Michigan is dysfunctional from top to bottom and I don't see it changing anytime soon.
I like Hoke as a person, but it stretches the imagination to think that someone who can't even articulate what the problem is will be able to correct it.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Haha, good one||
Both UM haters
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Stream?||
Stuck here w/o TV access. Anyone have a decent stream for the game? Vipbox.tv streams are unreliable.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||It points out||
It points out just how dysfunctional and bad the UM FB program is right now. I can't see them playing at this level for years to come. Hope I'm wrong and things get turned around more quickly, but geez, they suck right now.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Bandwagon||
I hate that argument too. How is it a good thing that your school only appeals to people who attended there?
But the world is full of bandwagon jumpers. West Michigan, where I live, used to have the rep of being full of Wolverine fans who never went to UM. But now all you see is Sparty gear everywhere. So go figure.
Looking for a huge Sparty loss today.

I expected the offense to struggle, and they did, but not to the extent I was steeling myself for. But I had high hopes of the D keeping us in the game. That was pretty much shot by mid-way through the first half.
|11 weeks 19 hours ago||Opposite||
The best hire is almost never someone who is so desperate for the job that they would take it no matter what. Top talent can be had but must be wooed because top talent is always in demand. Hoke was a bail-out hire and not considered top shelf by anyone anywhere.
|11 weeks 20 hours ago||I would like nothing more||
But frankly it's hard to rationalize why next year would be any better when the team didn't show any progress this season. Will the football fairies come in and sprinkle magic dust on our coaches and players?
|11 weeks 21 hours ago||I cannot vote...||
I was naughty and I lost my 100 point balance.
I prepared for my posts well but apparently just didn't execute. Most likely this is because I am a rather young poster and was trying a new system. But no worries, I have some 5-star memes prepared and am recovering from my boo-boos.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||This was a nut punch||
I can't believe I stayed up till the wee hours to watch this team embarrass itself and its fanbase. At this point, I see no reason for optimism. Under Hoke and his minions, this program will flirt with that level that sits just above average but will never achieve anything more. At one point I had thought we would be able to pin our hopes on the D, but now that looks like a goner.
What hurts even worse is that making a coaching change now would blow up the program. So for the next few years we're stuck with mediocrity and unfulfilled expectations.

Your'e just bein' rebellion
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Ah, ok||
Off to the wardrobe then.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||I assume||
I assume newbs like me see nothing different. I'm new to the board so not sure what I'm looking for.

A family friend graduated from KSU and their whole family wears purple. All the time. Even their drapes are purple. It's nauseating. Like this:
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Man||
Your'e harshing my buzz here.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Lump it in||
Lump BWW in with Chili's, Applebee's, etc. etc. And all the other purveyors of re-heated or deep-fried frozen food.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Sparty taking a beating||
Sparty taking a beating on that site. No one picked them to win. Also Zimmerman must be a B1G honk.
|14 weeks 14 hours ago||After seeing||
Frankly, after seeing how this team performed against Akron and Uconn, I can't really think of a team they could play that would be a lock for a win. Georgia State maybe.
|14 weeks 14 hours ago||Gotta wonder||
Which of the the following 6 scenarios do you think is most likely? Which—if any—results in DB making staffing changes to the Offensive coaching staff?
|14 weeks 15 hours ago||You are correct, sir||
A win is better than a loss, but this is a bitter pill to swallow to see UM sink to such a lowly bowl game. But at this point we have to take our victories where we find them.
|14 weeks 18 hours ago||Respect but don't like||
I give Dantonio credit for creating a solid football team in EL, and no doubt they are just that. Fundamentally sound and nearly mistake-free. That being said, I am sick to death of eating shit from the fanbase. I was rooting for OSU last night--one successful enemy is better than two.
It also kills me that MSU takes a 3-star recruit like Cook and turns him into a solid player, whereas UM takes a talented athlete 5-star recruit like DG and four years later he's still a mess as a QB.
|14 weeks 18 hours ago||Good one!||
Did you see the shot of one of the sparties at the game last night holding up a big sign that said, "Burn the couch!" At least they know who they are. As a wise man once said "Know then thyself..."
|14 weeks 18 hours ago||Pretty bad||
Started out as harmless fun, but there are always some people who have to escalate the situation and then the mob mentality begins. I felt really bad for that dude--just driving through and didn't deserve to have snow dumped in his face by a spoiled student. I wonder if anyone will be held accountable.

Someone posited that factoid a while back. Can't remember who.
