|18 hours 29 min ago||Come on, man||
It's not completely out of the ordinary to think we lose to ND this year. I think Vegas has us as a dog as well.
|18 hours 38 min ago||See my reply about the using the word "stellar"||
|18 hours 39 min ago||As for the OSU game||
That was an outlier last year. That might as close as Hoke is gonna get to beating OSU ever again.
|18 hours 43 min ago||In no particular order||
1. Game is in SB
|18 hours 49 min ago||I guess I used stellar too loosely||
I think our defense will be improved from a fairly good performance last year. Teams like ND and OSU will still have no problem scoring on us. Home games for them help tilt the scale more in their favor.
|19 hours 28 min ago||He did land...||
...right on her face!
|19 hours 35 min ago||Expectations vs What Will Happen||
I always have high expectations...until recently. This is what I think will happen:
1. Similar record to last year, maybe one more win
2. Blow-out losses to ND and OSU
3. Close loss to MSU, Penn State, and bowl game
4. Defense is stellar
5. Offense is better, but still sub-par. Still hard for us to score points at times
6. Hoke's seat is piping hot, but he gets the 2015 season
|1 day 21 hours ago||I agree...||
...but Hoke's lack of grace could also be used among his players and staff, which could be confusing and counter-productive. Not saying that's the case and I understand perception is not necessarily a reality.
|2 days 25 min ago||What about the community?||
|2 days 25 min ago||Ok. If you want to be objective...||
...at this point, OSU has an edge over us in every category. And probably a significant edge in most of them. We'll see what Hoke & co can do here in the next year or two.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Some other Chicago suggestions.||
Highly recommend trying Edzo's. There is one in Evanston and hear they opened one in Lincoln park somewhere.

|1 week 2 days ago||Then your union sucks||
And is completely worthless. You should not have to pay union fees. I think a right to work state may be better for you.
|1 week 3 days ago||I will guarantee you...||
...if Hoke is fired after this season (or next), Brandon will not lose his job. As much as some people like to bash Brandon, he is successfully running the premier athletic department in the nation. His decisions regarding the football program has been suspect, but the commitment to all other sports has been second to none in Michigan history (even Canham).
|1 week 4 days ago||I think the numbers showed that...||
...he did NOT turn ball state around. I don't have the numbers in from of me, but in short, he performed below historical ball state standards and was pretty much on par with the Bill Lynch, the previous coach.

In what is likely going to cause some negging, I call our coach, Coach Clap Hands.
|1 week 5 days ago||And over-priced||
Went to the HQ warehouse here in Chicago. Very nice (and attractive) staff, high quality threads, but way way over priced.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I was in Covington GA for work...||
...and decided to take a drive up to Athens. Not a bad college town. I was impressed. Unfortunately, it was during the summer and the campus was dead, but it had a nice aesthetic appeal to it.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Do tell||
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Serious question for you||
Going 0-4 in non-conf play, but winning the big ten. Is that considered a successful season?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||um..||
"have had a very successful career in finance thus far" = working the cash register at McDonalds. Now serve me my fries!
|2 weeks 6 days ago||That's saying a lot...||
...considering the name of your handle
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Winning the Big Ten...||
...in this day and age is like bragging that you got straight Bs in the 10th grade. But I guess that's the new Michigan standard, so...yea.
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||Agreed and thanks||
There is a grass roots effort in Chicago to start "pulling over" bikers when they disobey the rules of the road. This would do 2 very positive things for the city:
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||Internet tough guy!||
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||I DO realize they are basically cars||
Do bikers realize that? They sure don't in Chicago. They act like they have special rules.
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||This isn't a car vs bike argument||
I don't own a car. I'm far more at danger of getting hit by someone on a bike than a car.
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||Is this the type of thing...||
...where you ride the road without any regard for the rules of the road, causing unsafe conditions, all while hypocritically giving a car the bird for accidentally cutting you off when the car had right of way?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||How THAT is bullshit||
I agree there was time that people wanted to dump JB. But to rehire TA?? No fucking way.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I would||
But I think we still can do a lot better than Franklin.
