He was quoted as claiming before the game that he is the “Biggest Mother F$&@%# On the Planet”.

The OP has it wrong.  According to Brady he’s the BMOP now and not GOAT.

I disagree with Brian and others.  As I understand Brian’s and Warde’s position, the situation was she followed the “rules” and reported the alligations to the “correct” persons as required and is neither liable nor responsible for the fact that nothing happened for the next year and that many many more gymnasts were abused.  But that is the same defense many at PSU used.

I believe, that if someone reports to you in disgusting detail an abuse like this, that you have the responsibility of following up beyond the “rules” if you see that nothing is happening.  In fact youth coach training now includes that specific situation.

At Michigan we need to protect our athletes and students.  And that means hiring people who will go beyond the call of duty (and beyond just protecting their ass) when something so obviously disgusting is asking YOU to take action

Best Ever!

I still remember when I wss 15 riding in the back of my older brothers car and I first heard Kashmir.  And for the first and last time I had to ask “What song is that?”.  From then on I discovered all their albums and songs. 

Since then listened to all kinds of music but every so often I rediscover Zeppelin.

Their best are their blues songs.   

I just bought a guitar last month to learn The Rain Song.

That first thread should have never been locked.

And this hire is clearly a stupid hire made through contacts. It has no upside only downside.

At first glance and given some oddities in the numbers this might not be a reflection at all of success rates on 1st, 2nd, and third down but rather its only a reflection of how they defined success differently on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd down.  And in that case, the more likely, and obvious, conclusion is that passing is the most successful option if you need to gain 5 yards (1st down success defintion) or 4 yards (2nd down) and running is on short yardage.

I guess they’ve finally solved Don Brown’s defense for good. 

12/26/2018 - 2:34pm Interesting sub thread.

Interesting sub thread.

Mine is because I went to Michigan starting in ‘78 (after attending Andover) when Bo coached.  I grew up playing soccer under Ernie Knect’s (iirc) youth program at Cranbrook and at Michigan briefly met Bo when we had a game on one of his practice fields.  

Though I believe in never growing old.

Robocallers. 

It’s out of control. A bunch of liars and scam artists. 

One called and said he’d lower my health care premiums 75%. But then they told me they wont cover any pre-existing conditions.  WTF, all my costs are pre-existing conditions. What the hell do they think, I'm an idiot or something.  I told them to fuck off. 

Another called, with a heavy accent, and said they took control of my computer and if I didn't pay $10000 in bit coin they were going to steal and expose all my emails. I told them go ahead.  I don’t have anything to hide.  And to fuck off. 

Another called, told me I wasn’t born in America, my birth certificate was invalid, and they would deport me.  Unless I donate to their charity.  And if I donate $1000 he will make America great again. I told him to go spend his own fucking money. And to fuck off.  

Fuck Robocallers.

Excellent work and post.  Thanks!

As feed back the 4 quadrant BCG graph doesn’t work as well here.  There are places in the graph where a team with great D and average O or vice versa is better than many teams that could be in the upper right quadrant.  Try using a graph that shows the diagonal lines (upper left to lower right) where teams are equal.

F on offense and defense.  Not because of the score but because of the over confidence in sticking to “whats worked” and the lack of prepping and uwillingness to change schemes for what will obviously be coming, and for not anticipating the obvious in game situations.

Why is it every one knew they were coming after it except the coaches and players.

That was great!  I’m looking forward to the “flattering piece” to come out later today.

It was the Game before 1980 at least.  When I moved to California in 1987 and learned the Stanford Cal game was called the Big Game and it was between two perpetual also rans I could be heard saying there was only one The Game. 

Thank you for your craftsmanship in maintaining and restoring the M.

So where does the 6’3” and 4.4 come from.

Great analysis.  I wouldn’t change anything.

I like Dino Babers. He’s doing great things at Syracuse.  

Syracuse is under rated. 

ND is over rated. 

Kharma, or the football gods, are not with us on this one and ND gets a lucky assist to get the win. 

11/16/2018 - 12:17am Zordich and Mattison…

Zordich and Mattison consistently deliver the best DB and DL group in the nation. Everyone will overlook them   

Then there is Don Brown. The best DC in the nation  

Warinner is awesome but this year it’s only the “most improved” award.  We all know that award. 

And Coach Harbaugh for building the team.

Why would Shea care.  He’s a competitor. He knows all that matters is The Game in Columbus in 3 weeks. Everything else is irrelevant.

CBs went from 24% favoring Michigan yesterday to 54% favoring Michigan this morning. 

Imagine a Mattison (hoping he can’t resist sticking around)coached DLine with Harrison, Hinton, and Mazi Smith. 

10/31/2018 - 1:21pm I agree with this. I’m not…

I agree with this. I’m not defending Paterno.  He was not just week and selfish but he enabled a pedophile. 

I was only suggesting that Canham could have easily fired Sandusky and even Paterno under the same circumstances.  

10/31/2018 - 12:54pm As I recall, Paterno…

As I recall, Paterno communicated it up and the AD and School President knew.  So with your logic, you’d have to assume Canham would bury it.  I disagree with that.  

Clearly we all prefer a man like Bo who’s ethics are unquestioned.  

But, another version of this story could have been that Paterno was unlucky not to take the Michigan job.  Because if he had, Canham would have fired Sandusky and Paterno’s legacy would be intact.  Of course, all of these scenarios are pure speculation. 

10/22/2018 - 6:43pm Agree.  The original post is…

Agree.  The original post is dumb.  The options are both or neither.

Why do we have posts like these?

In watched him today and was really excited for him after all the adversity and the back surgeries. 

But...I appreciate all the reminders that he is still a scum bag. Though not as bad as Kobe.  Why that guy gets a pass for rape I’ll never know.

The title to this thread is completely misleading.  Read the damn article.  There is nothing negative about Nebraska or Frost in it. In fact it’s positive.

I noticed he’s also recently responded angrily to criticism. Which is odd because someone “in the know” doesn’t care if people disagree with him.
