Damn. Usually when they do a feature on an offensive player they use clips of him making big plays for big yardage. It appears that footage of those kind of plays was hard to come by given our O-line woes.

Not true.  Lots of people talk about the "o-line woes" without any signficant negative impact in voting.  Most people here agree it's going to be an issue, especially early in the season, but some of us feel it will get worked out to some extent by season's end.  Some dont.  That's what message boards are for.

What will get you "tarred, feathered and tattooed" however by the masses are using old and tired meme's and silly references to OSU like the ones you chose as well as using words like "suckeye" in your post.

Basically if you post like you're on MLive you're going to get treated accordingly.

what does a neg or sixty negs actually mean? what does a person win if he or she gets pos-banged a thousand times? will you receive a big house on a hill? how about a new ferrari? will a poster be elected president? i don't give a shit about your negs. neg me into a deficit. i don't even know how many points i have, because they don't matter. i participate here and there just because i thought that maybe having community with michigan fans, considering there aren't too many in south carolina, might be cool, but a few of you motherfuckers are as stuffy as a son of a bitch. "i negged you and i'll have my buddies neg you, too!" and then? go for it, yo. they're your thumbs...

speaking of stuffiness... i just noticed that the guy i initially responded to (not you, pudgy, or your pudgy buddy, mgrowold) has accrued negs and he didn't say anything remotely dickish... what's wrong with what he said? there went your "acting like a bag of dicks" argument. i should neg you every day for the next two years, just because you care about your points so much. i should create seventy accounts just to neg you with all of them. i should, but i won't, because i don't care enough about your points or your message board popularity to waste my time. and who the fuck are you any-damned-way? i knew I recognized you. you're...what's his name? oh--it'll come to me sooner or later or as soon as you become somebody of importance who does something of importance somewhere of importance...

I noticed this colorful phrase "acting like a giant bag of dicks".  It is quite thought provoking.

  • Try to visualize what this concept might actually look like.
  • Try to imagine what it might act like.
  • How would one acquire such a thing?
  • What might one do with it?
  • Conversely, what thoughts might be provoked by an alternate term such as "acting like a giant bag of vaginas"?

So the OL and RBs met to discuss the protections after the scrimmage. Before last year I would have said great, glad they had time to get that identified before the season. But this was supposed to be the number one thing being worked over spring and summer.

And of course simplify is getting simpliflying-er

These videos are really keeping my going over the past week or so as the excitement builds for the season.

In some ways, the next seven days are as exciting as the season.  We have a live opponent to look forward to in one week.  The roster should pretty much be set.  And despite the Fort, more practice buzz and relevant info should start to come out.  Hell, I even look forward to Brian's season previews (which, if Brian hold to prior years' posting schedules should start on Monday).  For me, next week is pretty much a wasted week at work.

Hope that this season, unlike 5 of the past 6, doesn't disappoint and that we finally make strides towards regaining our place amongst the football elite.

Derrick Green =




Deveon Smith = 2013 Derrick Green



Almost fell out of my chair for a second when Doug had what appeared to be a sweater vest.  But then I recovered when I realized it was merely a golf shirt with a pattern to LOOK like a sweater vest.  Very clever Doug, very clever.

Also,  I was shocked to hear that Green's weight topped out at 258 lbs.  And we were all freaking out about the roster weight of 240lbs.  Imagine if we had seen that 258 lb figure in real time.  Fort Schembechler indeed.  I suppose it's a good sign that now we are hearing "yeah, he was WAAAAY too overweight now" since it basically signals that issue is now long gone.  

But it does kind of make you wonder what new tidbits will trickle out next year about this year's squad....
