Might not be my favorite or the best game I can remember. But this was the game that got me hooked on M football for life.
I was 10 going on 11, and its one of my very first football memories. I succintly remember thinking "incomplete, motherfuc-mkfn*726smnsd" but somehow Dez got under it. Amazing catch.

I'll give you that. The league is far away from the days of the Bad Boys defense, where you could basically beat someone senseless and not get a technical. Now guys are getting flagrants for breathing too hard on other guys. But scoring went down in the late 90s and people were tuning out, so the game and rules change so it has become much more of an offensive game for the sake of viewership.
I'll get off my soapbox now - I just get aggravated when people hate on the NBA for the wrong reasons (they don't play defense, they are all thugs, etc.)
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Sorry, I hate that statement||
Sorry, I hate that statement and had to jump in.
They DEFINITELY play defense in the NBA. To say they don't is a misinformed generalization. If you play on the wing and you cannot stay in front of your man, you won't play very long. Now obviously, if you score 20+ppg and can pull down some boards, there are ways to "help" on D and keep you on the floor, so there are exceptions - maybe Nik would be one.
I suggest reading this lengthy and informative article on how important defense is in the NBA.

They snuck up on me this year, rattled off like nine wins a row to take control of the MAC. It was a pleasant surprise after their shaky start.
I've always felt that WMU should be much better in athletics in the MAC. Nice facilities, large student population, smack in the middle of recruiting hotbeds like Detroit and Chicago.
I hope they do work in the MAC tourney and represent in the Big Dance. A possible Michigan-WMU matchup would be crazy!

Still can't believe that pass made it to Gr3 without being deflected OR going over his head and out of bounds.
These bball game writeups have become my favorite posts of the week because they generally hold positive content, but Brian's writing style for these are brilliant and they seem to keep getting better. As a former and failed sports journalist, I applaud you, sir.

Just bored on a Saturday night and following a story that has become bigger than the Olympics. Thanks though.

Love the comments all praising this dude; one saying that this guy is "the blueprint" of what Red Raiders should be.

Not sure how to embed links, but Desmond Howard posted this...same fan...

Unless the N bomb came out, I just can't see any justification for going after a fan. But who knows. I was watching live and nearly spit my drink out.

Bought it this morning. Will go perfect with my "Perfect Season 2008: 0-16" Shirt

Is there a reason the Live Audio at MgoBlue.com is not doing anything...isn't there pregame stuff?

I think he meant we as in the fan base. Like you and other panicking fans, specifically.

Glad it is relocating.
Or otherwise, we would have seen 247's Crystal Ball projections for Da'Shawn Hand start trending more to Alabama and Florida.

Kyle Gass from Tenacious D in the background?!

Is there anything planned for Saturday gameday? I am flying in from South Carolina and meeting my older brother, but we don't have plans during the day. Would love to come by a tailgate and meet the MGoCrew.

She is a Conchords fan. That's pretty awesome.

Taylor Lewan is also mentioned as one of the college stars connected to this memorabilia broker.
I hope this won't blow smoke from the Manziel tire fire towards Ann Arbor.

Is Jason Cornell coming as well?
He is the top-ranked recruit in 2015 according to some sites, and he has been in contact with some of our commits via Twitter already. I thought I read somewhere that he might be coming to UTL2.

Lorenz over at 247 is saying that we aren't really on "Commit Watch" but you know, anything can happen once these kids get on campus and see what the city, the university and the progam have to offer.
It will be interesting to see who might get offered and some of the reactions from some of these highly-touted kids.
I'm looking at you, Lenny...

Exactly how is that different from football recruiting?
Not trying to be a dick here, but football is the same way with kids naming favorites, cutting the list, and pushing back decision dates or switching from one school they were leaning heavily towards to another school that makes a late push ( see: Treadwell, Laquon).

And last season was incredible...you done lost your mind! The new season looks pretty intense too. Looks like Tyrese is gonna wreck some shit.
|50 weeks 6 days ago||I am still having a hard time||
I am still having a hard time believing that the basketball program is in on so many highly-rated recruits. It's been a long time coming since the Fab Five days to return to where they are now.
The sky is the limit for both bball and hoops programs these days.

Like Walt in Breaking Bad. Wonder if the kid was a chem major?

I took a gander at the RCMB board, and looked at some of the subjects they chat about...this one caught me eye. Sums it all up pretty well.
