09/22/2018 - 6:03pm True, Peters had more…

True, Peters had more disadvantages around him on offense last year.  But nonetheless, it seems to me that Dylan is bringing more upside as QB in the ways I mentioned above than Peters.

This is just my couch warming opinion of course.  Time will tell, barring injury.

09/22/2018 - 4:10pm I like Peters.  But last…

I like Peters.  But last year except for maybe a few of his best moments, he did not look as good as McCaffrey has looked so far.

Limited sample size... but I see more consistency, awareness, mobility, accuracy, and grasp of the offense from McCaffrey than I was seeing out of Peters last year.  And of course.. a higher ceiling.

And Peters was our best QB last year, McCaffrey is 2nd string this year.

Things looking up!

09/22/2018 - 4:01pm I don't see that.  McCaffrey…

I don't see that.  McCaffrey has looked waaay better in limited action so far than Peters did at any point last year.  Peters best game elicited a OK!  We have a functional QB!'  McCaffrey looks to be better than functional.

If McCaffrey of this year was able to magically go back in time and start all of last year (stay healthy), we win at least 2 more games... OSU and MSU.  And possibly a 3rd against Wisc.

 

 

08/26/2018 - 10:21pm Well said!

Thanks for…

Well said!

Thanks for providing sane perspective for those who lack it.

04/27/2018 - 2:35am You say Brandon

I say Abandon!

Yeah, carry on some more.  Long-winded diatribe redacted.

04/27/2018 - 2:33am ok

Alright.. I wrote some frustrated stuff here based on this thread and then read some actual news sources and well...nothing to see here.

Carry on.

04/05/2018 - 11:24pm 1st period and early 2nd

the commentary was pro michigan.
Melrose is just fluffing the frontrunners or whoever seems to have the momentum.

04/03/2018 - 1:49am Evidently I had too much fun

in the 90's and have been paying for it with interest ever since.  This is why it's my fault.   Carry on for the hard truth.

People who think we were blown out and outclassed. Well, it's only half true.

If we hit our season average on WIDE fuckin OPEN 3's and they don't have red-headed step child hoop-shuei unconsciousness... not only is the score completely different, but the mentality of the game is different. They get tighter and we're less panty-bunched and it's anyone's game.

But... they had cold-blooded killers from range and we were not shooting well throughout the ncaa tourney (not counting the TxA&M aberration of joy).

Re-watch every 3-point attempt in the game and tell me who had more wide-open looks. Us or them? Yep. Us. 60/40.  70/30 before our hearts were ripped out.

Coulda been so nice.

But I had too much fun in the 90's.

Sorry

03/27/2018 - 11:56pm I guess we get to warm up

Get to warm up with an Honorable Mention opponent.  See if we can hang.

03/24/2018 - 11:09pm Pile On!

Sorry about your nose Livers!

03/01/2018 - 2:00am 6 or 11 seed

Well.. the 11 seed might not be realistic.

But if we don't win the B1G tournament and get a 3 seed, I'd rather lose the 1st game and get a 6 seed than win one or two games and get a 4 or a 5 seed.

Speaking from NCAA tourney matchup perspective anyway.

03/01/2018 - 1:41am Speaking of Ijits

Is your avatar Danny DeVito wearing a headlamp?

Maybe my screen resolution isn't so good.

02/24/2018 - 4:18pm Thanks

Makes sense. Fwiw, I completely forgot the Slovenian's name.

02/24/2018 - 4:15am The quint!

For teh wint!

Unreal.  I'm ready to go play some shufflepuck now after witnessing that piece of US Olympic Historic Glory!

02/24/2018 - 1:56am Loads for me

It says that even after a shower at a holiday inn express, he's still dirty and stupid.

02/24/2018 - 1:54am alpine team slalom event

It also seemed that the red course was clearly faster than the blue course for the team ski event... but at least in this case, each team had 4 racers competing in 4 races and they split the red and blue courses evenly across teams.

That said, I watched racer after racer losing on the blue course in the snowboard event and even if they were defending olympic medalists, they almost always seemed to congratulate the winner without hesitation at the end of the race.  Didn't see any obvious complaints about the course.

Maybe officials gave Sang-Ho the win despite appearances in the photo finish because he was on the slower blue course and only lost by .01 seconds, so they flipped the times  :) No idea, really.

Probably some of these skiers and boarders would have the same opinion about basketball and football refs unduly influencing the outcome after watching a game.  I know I sure as hell do!  Certainly don't feel like justice was served in that game in Columbus in 2016, but thanks for the upvote!

02/24/2018 - 1:37am not a conspiracy

you just can't make 2 identical courses side by side on natural terrain and even if you could.. they wouldn't wear identically over the course of dozens of races down them.

Yes, red course was faster at the top and maybe thru the middle.  Seemed like blue course might have been faster at the bottom.

But.... if you want to talk conspiracy theory, look at the mens semi-final between S. Korea Lee Sang-Ho and the Slovenian... they (only one time) showed the photo finish and the Slovenian's board clearly went over the line first, but Sang-Ho won by .01 seconds and went on to the final.

The Slovenian could be seen/heard saying 'I was first!!!!' as he watched a replay right before going to commercial.

The only question I have that could undermine the screw-up theory here (whether conspiracy or not) is if it's the boot/binding crossing the line first that matters, or the front edge of the board.  Since they only showed the finish line view once, I can't say for sure whose boot crossed first.  But Slovenian board definitely crossed first.

 

09/06/2017 - 1:02am Maybe so

but let's revisit in a few weeks.  If I had money to bet on worst run D in SEC and that was a thing to bet on, I'd seriously consider putting it on Tennessee.

And only because Hoke is D-line coach.

After constant downward trajectory at UM and providing historically bad D at Oregon while they still had more talent available on the team than they had throughout the entirety of 70's and 80's and part of the 90's....

Track record is pretty bleak.

Nice guy though.  Maybe he should coach elementary school football.

09/02/2017 - 11:10pm Opening drive, 2nd half

This is what I thought our offense was going to try to be.

Too many long, low percentage throws in this game for Wilton to operate within his wheelhouse outside of that drive.

I am optimistic that Pep will learn how to exploit Wiltons strengths this year. All you Wilton H8Rs need to take a deep breath and pull those giant wedgies out of your britches.

09/02/2017 - 10:57pm Black had a

much better game than Crawford, but he dropped one too. Both hands on it.

Overall, our talented receiving corps was subpar today, but we know we can expect better going forward.

Very exciting.

09/02/2017 - 9:56pm Crawford 3 yard catch

was lighting yards on fire.
Granted he'd have to turn it upfield quickly, but if he does this as y'know... receivers should when they catch a pass, he's got 10 yards or more.

09/02/2017 - 9:51pm Crawford was not

good today.
the Int off his hands and a catch on some type of crossing route in the 1st quarter where he had an easy 10 yards if he turns it upfield. Instead he runs across the field, straight at the D for minimal gain.
That said, I'm assuming he'll improve over the year with more PT.

09/02/2017 - 9:44pm Agreed

I wish Harbaugh benched him after both, even though he was great otherwise.
Idiots who put themselves above the team should not be tolerated.

09/02/2017 - 9:41pm not even

Speight may not be clutch, but he's far better than you give him credit for.
He had 3 mistakes that gave points to UF or cost us points, but other than those, he was solid.

08/19/2017 - 11:55pm if he doesn't keep posting

he'll get shorter and fall over.

08/18/2017 - 4:58pm bees are all up in your flowers

yellowjackets are all over your picnic.

08/18/2017 - 4:55pm that was a hive of bees

not yellowjackets.

08/09/2017 - 10:23pm I thought

I looked very carefully at my phone and guessed it had something to do with that ghostly floating head above the E getting hip squeezed between 3 and 90.
True, I thought their facial expressions looked pretty ridiculous, but I think that about a lot of the popular things lately, such as expressive head turning and hand chopping pseudo dance moves while listening to some dope beats on a shitty pair of ear buds outside a 7 eleven.

07/29/2017 - 12:43am favorite #2

Chris Calloway. Great little receiver who played 87-90.
Actually had a more prolific pro career than at Michigan but solid college career as well.

He was an excellent blocker with great hands and is probably the best WR ever to wear the 2 at UM.

06/19/2017 - 3:45pm same same

only bonier.

06/19/2017 - 1:55am MSU pain stock was up

but it's gone back down to manageable levels given our recent win and their self-destruction.

OSU however has been winning far too much lately and have repeatedly pulled toilet-seat shaped horseshoes out of their ass to win games they shouldn't have in the last 5 years.

I'm sick of OSU, and I'm tired of those 50 something flamboyant buckeye fans that always have 1st row seats regardless of stadium or venue and dress and act like they're trying out for the Raiders over the hill cheer squad.  Particularly that one guy that seems to have an ESPN contract for all the face time his ugly mug gets at every buckeye game.

Yep... dislike for OSU transcends the faltering upstarts from MSU.  But MSU has certainly made it closer in recent memory.

06/19/2017 - 1:40am I'm with you

I like to spout some ridiculous words like 'floccinaucinihilipilification, but 'disprefer' is inversely proportional to 'gruntled'...neither are words, but only 1 of them should be and only one is entertaining.

Speaking of which, 'disprefer' is a floccinau... uh, the rest. Google it.

05/03/2017 - 1:59am is this a test?

if so, most of us have failed. All 3 of these ridiculous WD and WDD posts have fake M gear clothing.
The font is all screwed up in the 2 WD posts, so I assume he is just trolling. or else kidnapped and impersonated by some buckeye or spartan nut.
sorry about the formatting for posting with phone.
wake up people! and go to bed.

03/22/2017 - 3:20pm Guards! Guards!

I'm just reading that book now and so wonder if I've missed this or countless other Discworld references over the years.
No wonder I like the writing here.
Please add some Patrick O'brian homages as well.

03/01/2017 - 3:52pm phone formatting sucks

so much for paragraphs.

03/01/2017 - 3:50pm dual sport

A lot of people saying get a cruiser or a small sport bike.
Don't.
One of the most important things when riding is being able to see and be seen.

On a dual sport such as a DR650 or a KLR650, you sit upright, not leaned fwd or back. Your head is up high giving you better visibility and the riding posture is one that encourages awareness and engagement.
Furthermore, these bikes are lightweight, highly maneuverable and quick to accelerate or stop... all critical components of a safe ride.

Another good option is an adventure class intro bike like a vstrom 650.

All of these bikes I mentioned are relatively inexpensive, reliable and versatile.

Again... do not get a sport bike or a cruiser.

02/21/2017 - 1:07am No

I imagine a convoy of U-hauls laden with couches. The rest is too horrible to describe..

01/25/2017 - 4:03pm I like

how your posts have nothing to do with your username.

01/10/2017 - 9:01am Watson runs it in

if both receivers are held, the defenders are also occupied if they're holding and Watson has a free run into the end zone.
He had already sprinted out to the right and no one else could beat him to the corner.

08/31/2016 - 3:14pm confounded

he confused the officer by getting into a 3 pt stance, thus making himself appear smaller and less threatening before displaying the explosiveness off the ball that got him a scholarship in the first place.
yep... exactly how it happened.

06/24/2016 - 1:24am Jamie Morris?

I mean c'mon.. this is a Michigan blog fergodsakes.  We'll have Michigan 23's to compare to or we won't have any 23's to compare to at all!

06/24/2016 - 1:15am If the sleeves were Maize

If the sleeves were Maize down to a few inches below the elbow... now THAT would be even amaizeinger.

 

01/18/2016 - 1:43pm I was at that game

Dont remember which year, but probably 85 or 87.
That was hilarious although the buckeye mascot then proceeded to deliver a flying jump kick to the gut that dropped the tackler. Also pretty funny.

12/10/2015 - 1:16am Butt wait...

there's more. 

Butt's shown some real wiggle pulling in balls, whether streaking wide open down the middle or driving a hard out and up on the backside of the defense, those nimble moves have carried Butt all the way to score again and again.

Whoa... maybe a little overboard there.

11/25/2015 - 12:38am Also 13 year old self at that game...

We were sitting in Section 8, row 83... waaay up there, but it was the perfect angle to see the throw.  As soon as it left Harbaugh's hands everyone in the section stood in anticipation of the inevitable completion.

Kolesar had his man beat easily and was streaking under the pass to meet the ball.  I raised my arms overhead in excitement because I knew it was going to be a completion at the height of the throw...

Not sure I'd have that same unshakeable faith had I known that Kolesar couldn't see a damn thing!  Wow.

11/15/2015 - 1:13pm Are you kidding?

Peppers maybe?

11/15/2015 - 1:12pm yep

I think you have to consider Chesson a playmaker. He's likely going to have himself a pro career if he can continue to improve his ball skills and body control.

11/15/2015 - 2:41am Whoa Nelly!

I think you're getting a little over dramatic...

  • 0 offensive playmakers?  I count 3: Rudock Peppers Butt... say that 3 times fast!
  • Massive injury problems? Ryan Glasgow is a significant injury, I'll give you that... Ojemudia... also an impact but if RJS remains healthy it's not a big drop.  Who else?  Possibly Dymonte Thomas.  MASSIVE is not an accurate descriptor.  I have no data, but I'll guess at least half of FBS teams are worse off w/injuries to starters.

That said, I find it unlikely that we'll win the B1G... but dammit, I'll HOPE we do.
