I think it’s a pretty big deal. Even if there isn’t a ton of specific play info, he has to understand Meyer’s thought process better than anyone on the staff.
|11/11/2018 - 3:23pm||I honestly don't get how…||
I honestly don't get how people are unable to grasp that we are given a snapshot and sometimes things change. I work in medicine and can't tell you how many times stuff changes.
I don't read every post on the board, but I've also never seen him pound his chest either. I agree the ND comments seemed off, but whatever. Appreciate whatever info we can get.
|11/10/2018 - 10:18am||Reading P/CP is the reserved…||
Reading P/CP is the reserved for the first thing I do after I finish my morning coffee. It's not that the act I'm involved is in any way a commentary on what I'm reading. Quite the contrary. Like any piece of art consumed, whether screen or written word, there is always something lost when you are interrupted. Having a family means you will inevitably be interrupted if they see your face staring into the soul of your phone.
Confusion grips me and I'm uncertain if I should find some Axe body spray or a stadium hot tub to jump into. Aware, but not fully aware, of what I should do next, I grab my teddy bear and small magnets.
|11/10/2018 - 7:28am||I have noticed that as well…||
I have noticed that as well. I love the game within the game, and am always impressed when people keep a public tally as BeatOSU has done.
I've been watching that MSU/OSU line all week, of course it's been essentially static. Still don't know what to make of it. As much as I pride myself on gambling detachment, I can tell I've got too much emotion on that one to place a bet. Regardless of how much I waiver, I'm positive I'll see the ending and be like "I totally knew that would happen."
|11/07/2018 - 2:14pm||I appreciate the OP posting…||
I appreciate the OP posting this article. I agree that “no bombshell” is a correct phrase here as it is MSU - they clearly are an irredeemable trash university. I’m not making a regional dig here, but think of how big a deal this would be if it was at a university that actually had shame or gave a shit what people thought about them.
|11/03/2018 - 9:47am||So good. So. Fucking. …||
So good. So. Fucking. Good.
Thanks, as always.

Top 2 seeds get BYES
3 hosts 6, 4 hosts 5
That preserves the integrity of value to the regular season, with every couplet having extreme value over the one below it. No one with 1 loss from a power conference is going to be 7 or worse. If you are at 7, you had TWO losses and can’t complain. Also, home playoff games probably eradicates certain diseases because on-campus excitement would be absolutely incredible.

Fuck it. Divide by zero after Saturday.

You are far too kind to say we’d only be hungry. Many people, myself included, would probably be dead.

Love this idea as a recurring Sunday thread. M -7.5, IMO

Not sure about before the game, but they were definitely the victims for 4 quarters that afternoon.

This guy (thumbs pointed at WitchitanWolverine)
I used to have season tickets, but elected to give them up about 5 years ago. It had nothing to do with record. When you have a small child, Saturdays are the days for gymnastics meets, soccer games, Girl Scout Fast Traxk, et al. My ladies are going to be gone next weekend, though. Thinking I may have to grab the guys and go scalp some tix.
|10/20/2018 - 6:13pm||Even though the villain was…||
Even though the villain was obvious in those cartoons, I would miss who it was until the reveal. Now here I am, decades later, and I still can’t figure it out in time. I mean, OF COURSE it was Hornibrook.
Strong work, OP
|10/15/2018 - 8:59pm||If this season keeps moving…||
If this season keeps moving in the right direction, that will be the official statement moment of “We’re back, everyone who’s been on our case can fuck right off.”
I get super righteous about the way guys conduct themselves on the field (Felton Davis waving to the PSU crowd after his TD kind of stuff infuriates me). Had 0% issue with that penalty. It was joy, not taunting. And, all the haters can fuck right off.
|10/15/2018 - 10:55am||Yeah, but if we only did it…||
Yeah, but if we only did it ONCE against Alabama, would that really prove anything?
|10/06/2018 - 9:07am||I would feel very confident…||
I would feel very confident about beating that hybrid team. Especially without them having time to practice much together.
|10/04/2018 - 9:08am||Agree. Also love how much he…||
Agree. Also love how much he’s got everyone’s back. “Criticize the old dude, but not the players.” That gave me chills. I’m 40, so I’m past the point of idolizing current players. But Brown is a dude and a role model. So proud to have him representing Michigan.
|10/01/2018 - 7:03pm||Fuck Penn State, but that…||
Fuck Penn State, but that white out is awesome.

That's absolutely insane. I was unaware of that story.
|09/22/2018 - 3:47pm||That would be awesome. Great…||
That would be awesome. Great, complete effort today. We looked fantastic and, IMO, we are on a really nice improvement trajectory. Despite week 1, I think this is going to be a special season. Go Blue!
|09/20/2018 - 8:16am||I am a romantic and I…||
I am a romantic and I understand that my view is utterly naive. I feel that the world is a dark and sometimes miserable place. Universities should be our collective ray of light that punctures the darkness. They are our most important arsenal for liberty. As such, universities should be held to the highest possible ethical standards. No gray areas, no compromise, no excuses.

That comment is more exciting to me than Hill's SPARQ rating.

I would enjoy seeing your avatar and feeling a connection to it like I did 10-15 years ago.
|04/26/2018 - 6:43am||Agree completely.||
A true leader would have done all of this behind closed doors. No pressure. Each guy gets a chance to speak for themselves, maybe even anonymously. After the decision is made, he goes to the media and says "As an entire team we decided ____."
I also think the threshold has to be very low on how many guys need to disagree for him to remain off the team. I don't know what that number is, but I'm sure whatever Dantonio's number is, it's much bigger than mine.
|04/22/2018 - 8:47am||Dude, Alabama is actually||
a really nice state . . .

For me to POOP on!
|04/15/2018 - 7:15am||You nailed it.||
Reminds me of the "Leftorium" episode of the Simpsons where Homer is calling everyone to ask them to help out Flanders.
|04/12/2018 - 12:21pm||Couldn’t agree more.||
I’m a Michigan grad, wife is an MSU grad (legacy family). We’ve always joked about the unseen “Cold War” for our 9 year old daughter’s interest. As far as I’m concerned, MSU is now, literally, the last major university I would want her to attend. This is no longer a rivalry “look who’s better” sort of thing.
|04/07/2018 - 11:32am||Like many bad things,||
I still feel that story deserves more scrutiny.
|04/02/2018 - 5:10pm||Unfortunately,||
the way he talks, I’m quite certain it always has been the least of his problems.
|04/02/2018 - 10:56am||Michigan beating Villanova||
77-71 was my official bracket tiebreaker score. No need to change it now.
|03/31/2018 - 8:20pm||Hugging everyone I see!||
What a comeback!!!!!
|03/25/2018 - 6:46pm||As the OP said,||
advantageous to have the early slot if you win. That's fantastic.
|03/25/2018 - 6:43pm||Frozen Four in his first year||
back on campus. Great to have Mel back! Great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
|03/25/2018 - 6:42pm||Last time this happened to a school,||
(MSU), they set their campus on fire. So, since we won't do that, we already have fared better without even playing the games.
|03/25/2018 - 12:27pm||I love how definitive he is in his praise.||
Sometimes you get the feeling that coaches in that situation are just giving lip service. “Expertly” and “familiar territory” are statements made by someone who is not insecure about his fan base favoring another coach/sport.

We know this banner is never coming down.

be able to buy them on? I'm 39 and realize I will look dumb AF wearing them in public, but I think they're sweet.

|02/28/2018 - 2:32pm||Help, I’m old and bad with technology.||
My Discord username is Pixelcrusher720 (set up by a friend because, again, I’m dumb with tech that isn’t a video game). I sent a message on the Discord app and received a reply, but not sure if you meant to respond on this thread or not. Also, thanks a ton for doing this!
|02/24/2018 - 7:54am||My opinion of MSU can't get any lower||
than it currently is. That place is trash.
OT: Yesterday I took the family to Ann Arbor for the whole day. Hands-on Museum, walk around campus, dinner, then the hockey game. On the way back, my kid was effusive in her thanks for the day and praise for how awesome U of M is. She's 9, but she's already decided it's her top school. Today my wife (MSU grad) is taking her to MSU for what sounds like an awesome engineering/mathy type event for kids. On the way home, while my daughter was buzzing with excitement, my wife was discussing how MSU is a cool place too.
TL;DR I will happily pay for my kid to go out of state before I send her to MSU.
|02/23/2018 - 12:10pm||I think there is a subtle but important||
distinction between loyalty and cronyism. This makes me think that, although loyal, Harbaugh won't settle for anything less than what he thinks is best for the program. Gotta separate business and friends sometime. Glad it happened and hope everyone benefits from it moving forward.
|02/23/2018 - 11:48am||I still remember the tagline:||
"Leave your inhibitions at the door, the show is about to begin."
|02/22/2018 - 5:56pm||I’ve never met Enos either,||
but I’m pretty sure he’s a prick.
|02/21/2018 - 8:34am||I think non-constructive criticism||
of the football program is toxic and potentially deleterious. I would imagine that almost every one of us that posts on here is considered the most invested Michigan fan in their group of friends, give or take. Most of our professional contacts likely associate us with Michigan as well given conversations from work parties, break time, whatever.
When one of us begins to say things like "Harbaugh is on the hot seat," it probably makes ideas like that seem more plausible to the casual fan. I'm not saying people can't voice frustration or discontent, but I would recommend using the model of a married couple having a disagreement in front of their children or in-laws. Choose your words carefully. Make sure you bring up the positive and offer an even-handed way on how you would change things.
I get that the things I say in my back yard to my neighbor have essentially a zero percent chance on creating a negative narrative for the collective. But mulitply that by 10,000 (est # of posters), repeat many times at work/in public and now we've possibly helped create part of a negative buzz around our program.
TL;DR - constructive criticism > unfiltered catharsis
|02/21/2018 - 6:36am||"Last Team Standing"||
is absolutely perfect, IMO. Hang that banner, and then make it our t-shirt phrase that the guys wear during warmups. Like everyone, our goal is to be the last team standing.
You get to kinda claim the title without officially doing it. Nike makes a ton of money off people buying "Be the Last Team Standing" t-shirts. Seriously, TM that.
Also, it's great that Nike would have about 3.5 weeks to make that shirt between the Big Ten Tournament and the Big Dance.
|02/19/2018 - 7:20pm||Totally understand if you can't comment, or don't||
feel comfortable commenting. But on a scale of 1-10 (1 being uniformz and 10 being J.T. was short), how much is that one going to sting?
|02/12/2018 - 12:25pm||Also, I really don’t think ESPN||
is truly “done” with it yet. They put a ton of effort into finding the mine, and now they’ve proven there is something valuable (more clicks in this case) that they can very easily extract with a follow up story. We still haven’t heard from the other employees who quit because the standard of care wasn’t being followed.
