There is nothing wrong with being "mean, tough, and [playing] angry." The issue lies with the poor choices made off the field and the impact they have on the field.

 

Bo didn't allow his players in bars during the season. Lewan and his OL cronies were known to frequent South U on Saturday evenings after games. Part of being "mean, tough, and [playing] angry" is having that competitive drive that keeps you focused regardless of the circumstances.

 

Until football is far and away the most important extracurricular to M's players, they will not play at the level expected of them.

04/23/2014 - 2:08pm I think this is pretty accurate...

To me, it seems the OL has a culture issue that needs to be corrected in order for the team to succeed.

03/11/2014 - 11:30am I don't follow...

8 teams play 1st round, 4 advance

8 teams play 2nd round, 4 advance

6 TEAMS PLAY 3RD ROUND, 2 ADVANCE???

 

 

EDIT: I think I understand now...

1st round: 7-14 play, 4 advance

2nd round: winners + 3-6 play, 4 advance

3rd round: winners play, 2 advance

4th round: winners + 1-2 play, 2 advance

5th round: winners play, 1 advances

 

So it's an 8-8-4-4-2 format.

Thanks J.!

 

I'd upvote if I could!

02/10/2014 - 1:06pm Interesting chart...

...but given there are over 700 student athletes at the University of Michigan, this indicates that roughly 12% are pursuing a BGS.

While this number is significantly higher than the precentage of the general student body, I think it is important to note that 88% of student athletes are pursuing degrees similar to those of the other students.

Another disclaimer: BGS degrees should not be looked down upon and are not an indicator of course difficulty.

12/20/2013 - 11:57pm Event Staff

In the student survey there was a heavy emphasis on whether or not we were content with the performance/attitude of the event staff. It seemed like they honestly thought the reason so many students hate the AD is because of the event staff's behaviour on gamedays...oblivious.

These young men look very age appropriate for this blog.

I think they'll start whomever would be scheduled to start on normal rest. Porcello will be moved to the bullpen, but after that the rotation is so deep I don't see a reason to move things around.

Mark O'Meara and Mark O'Mara are not the same person.

Once a member of the Michigan family always a member of the Michigan family. Mistakes can be made, but that bond cannot be broken.

I have a Math 425 exam tomorrow morning. Good thing I came here while studying.

Stauskas had 18 points on 5 2pt FG, 2 3pt FG, and 6 FT?

 

Methinks somethings amiss.

I think the point of the survey is to compare all of the possible ideas to one another. If that's the case there would be 45(23) =  1035 possible questions.

This is not trolling...

"Kovacs, my favorite walk on of all time!"

is the same exact thing. We all love when players overcome others expectations of them and fight through adversity in order to succeed.

There's no doubt he has a nice stroke. I'm more worried about his contributions defensively and his ability to improve. While he has played better than the likes of McGary and GriII to this point, they've both been making typical freshmen mistakes that they can improve on. Stauskas seems to simply get beat due to lack of relative athleticism/endurance. Don't get me wrong I hope he turns out to be a superstar, I just don't understand the hype and bold assumptions after 8 very early games.

12/05/2012 - 2:53pm Not on Stauskas bandwagon yet...

I understand Stauskas has been playing well offensively, but is it really enough to warrant all of this? It seems too early to be so high on a guy who has only played one or two games against real competition.

12/05/2012 - 2:44pm Salty?

Sounds like someone is a little too salty to realize that at the time of his hire Rich Rod was one of the most coveted coaches in college football and Michigan, a very traditional football program, hiring the coach who invented the spread offense and fully intended to implement it was taking a HUGE risk.

I think the previous comment warranted this rebuttal...

 

"But they won't. B1G schools never, ever take risks for great coaches."

Rich Rodriguez?

Your comment seems to agree with the above, but you're questioning the above. I'm confused...
