10/16/2017 - 3:09pm The big difference between

The big difference between those upsets and us potentially upsetting PSU, is those top ranked teams may have had issues "getting up" for those opponents.  They are teams that no one expects to be able to compete and should just roll over as the highly ranked team rolls through town.  PSU is not going to have any trouble getting up for us this weekend.  I fully believe we can win this game and there are multiple scenarios I can see where we do indeed pull the upset.  I just think there is a big difference between our circumstances and those surrounding the upsets by Syracuse, ASU and ISU.

09/22/2017 - 2:17pm Well done as always Mello!!

Well done as always Mello!!  So jacked for tomorrow!

09/05/2017 - 10:21am Carolina is the obvious one

Carolina is the obvious one but I actually think Jacksonvillecould pull it off too.  I know Bortles is a hot mess but they improved their D again in the offseason.  Indy is going to start 0 and however many games Luck is out for sure.  Houston is starting Tom bleeping Savage.  Tennessee to me is the favorite in this division but if Jax can just get competant QB play for the most part this season I think they could surprise some people.  

09/01/2017 - 9:34am Did anyone else hear that the

Did anyone else hear that the Broncos are likely to cut TJ Ward if they can't trade him by Saturday?  That has to be good news for Thomas' opportunity of get some significant playing time this season!

08/15/2017 - 9:13am I have always been intrigued

I have always been intrigued by fantasy CFB but have yet to join a league to this point.  If you have a spot still open I would be interested depending of course on the league fees.

07/25/2017 - 12:47pm I can assure you I am not

I can assure you I am not judging anyone.  I said "i don't understand" because in my mind there is no conceivable way.  However, I have had many conversations with people who said when their kids are old enough to play PeeWee football they are going to allow them.  I will always defend my stance but I do not judge or berate those people for their parenting decisions.  

07/25/2017 - 12:29pm I am with you 100% on this!

I am with you 100% on this!  I played in high school and had one concussion but luckily I was playing QB (although not very well lol) and had a great O-Line so I only got hit twice all year.  I enjoyed my time playing football for sure but if I knew this info when I was 16 I never would have played!

I have a 5 year old son and my wife and I have already said there is no way in hell we are letting him play football.  I don't understand how any parent can consciously allow their child to start playing at a young age with all the information that is available now.  I do understand that when they get to high school your hands may be tied and they may do it anyways but I am hoping he enjoys golf or baseball or whatever else more by then!

I think a big misconception, that I've heard when talking to people, is unless they are good enough to play professionally they wouldn't have to worry about this.  That is incredibly inaccurate as I'm sure most people here are aware.  I believe it was the high school QB in NJ that died a couple years (please correct me if I am wrong) that had his brain tested and they found level 3 or 4 CTE.  That means the CTE would have started developing at the end of his PeeWee football days or his early high school years.  That is terrifying!

07/14/2017 - 1:16pm Berdych is making this a

Berdych is making this a little more difficult on Federer than I expected him too.  Never the less Fed is still up 2-0 after two tiebreakers and looks like he will go into the finals not having dropped a single set.  

07/12/2017 - 3:03pm I feel the same way.  I can't

I feel the same way.  I can't stand the way he turns around and screams at his coaching box after every point lost.  It's one thing to show frustration and yell at yourself but the way he doesn drives me nuts.  I've never been able to root for the guy.

07/12/2017 - 12:31pm I am hoping for this exact

I am hoping for this exact thing!  They were actually discussing it on Sportsnet here in Ontario yesterday.  Given the PPV revenue and build up to this fight they certainly aren't going to shut it down if McGregor kicks Mayweather in the head in the early rounds.  So if McGregor is getting killed in the first few rounds what does he have to lose?

07/12/2017 - 12:24pm Raonic just can't hang with

Raonic just can't hang with Federer on grass.  He can barely hang with him on any surface but Federer on grass is just ridiculous.  Raonic just seems to be step down from the Big 4.  He may sneak in and steal an Australian or US Open at some point but until Nadal and Rfed are done or no longer competitive he has no shot at Wimbledon or the French.

07/12/2017 - 11:30am Cilic already up 2 breaks at

Cilic already up 2 breaks at 4-0 in the 5th set.  This one doesn't appear that it will have the dramatic ending many other matches have.

07/10/2017 - 2:50pm Muller showing some serious

Muller showing some serious stones in this one.  Saved multiple break points and managed to hold serve.  Now at 10-9 in the 5th set.

07/10/2017 - 2:04pm Rafa just saved 2 break

Rafa just saved 2 break points that would have ended the match.  Tied 5-5 in the 5th set.  This one could last a while

06/08/2017 - 1:12pm Awesome job as usual Mello!

Awesome job as usual Mello!  Can't wait for Sept 2!!

04/28/2017 - 1:36pm Not sure he will be a

Not sure he will be a "starter" in title but he will be part of the rotiation.  The Cowboys rotate defensive ends with regularity.  Whether or not he starts over Meyowa, Lawrence or Irving, I don't know but he will get a ton, if not the most, snaps of any DE in the rotation.  Obviously this is assuming he is productive in his early reps. 

04/28/2017 - 1:25pm As a Cowboys fan I am

As a Cowboys fan I am ecstatic with the Taco pick!  I believe he is going to be an immediate contributor to a defense in desperate need of pass rush help.  Agree with a grade right around A- without a doubt!

I wish Peppers would have ended up somewhere other than Cleveland but that does seem to be a franchise making much better decisions the last few years and could be on the upswing.  Plus he will be able to make an impact immediately.

04/28/2017 - 10:04am I am not a Michigan alum but

I am not a Michigan alum but I am a diehard fan of both Michigan and the Cowboys!!  This was the pick I was hoping for as early as 3 months ago.  So excited to watch Taco grow and become an absolute beast for the Cowboys for years and years.  Need to get my Taco jersey ASAP!!

04/27/2017 - 9:48am Taco goes to Dallas at 28 is

Taco goes to Dallas at 28 is my guess.  Unless one of the top 2-3 CBs fall further than expected or Barnett is somehow still on the board.  

Peppers, Wormley, Butt and Lewis all go tomorrow hopefully!!  I could see Peppers going with one of the last 2-3 picks tonight but I thinks it's more likely he is an early second rounder.

04/07/2017 - 10:45am Masters weekend and first

Masters weekend and first round of golf for me Sunday morning!!  Gonna be a great weekend!  Bang!  Bang!

04/07/2017 - 8:42am Yeah him and Lee Westwood

Yeah him and Lee Westwood took full advantage of the conditions late in the afternoon.  I actually picked Hoffman as a sleeper pick this year given how well he has played this year and seems to get into contention all the time in majors.  I think he needs a 70 today to put some real distance between himself and the field.

04/06/2017 - 2:48pm 3 Putts

Is it just me or has there been an awful lot of 3 putts today?  I know the greens at Augusta are brutally difficult and the winds are going to make them even more difficult but I can't remember seeing this many 3 putts in a round before.

04/06/2017 - 1:23pm 12th Hole

And the 12th hole claims another victim.  Pieters was on fire at 5 under and just tripled the 12th to bring him back to 2 under in a tie with Rickie and others.

04/06/2017 - 11:46am It is a very odd development

It is a very odd development indeed.  They actually discussed that a bit this morning but it sounds like the incident happened less than an hour after he got back to the house from the course.  Obviously a lot can be done in an hour and I'm sure there will be a lot of questioning going on but hopefully this actually was just a bad luck incident.  I like DJ and he is a lot of fun to watch.

04/06/2017 - 11:31am They said it on Live from the

They said it on Live from the Masters this morning.  They didn't give any updates to exactly how he is feeling, they just said he will be teeing off as planned and is highly unlikely to withdraw.  However, he could get to the practice range and after hitting a few shots realize he can't do  it and withdraw at that time but as of now he is expected to play.

04/06/2017 - 11:25am Sounds like Dj is going to

Sounds like Dj is going to tee it up today.  Even if he is able to get through today and tomorrow I find it hard to believe he will be able to everything he normally does.  Wouldn't be surprised at all to see him miss the cut.

Lefty and Rickie are both off to real nice starts!

04/05/2017 - 9:13am I have never heard it

I have never heard it referred to quite as accurately as you just stated.  I am about a 14 handicap but only have time to play 8-10 rounds a year.  I have a 2 and 4 year old and my wife and I both work full time Monday-Friday so trying to get out more than once every 2-3 weeks during the summer is difficult.  I wish I could be more selfish and dedicate more time to the game to improve but it just isn't in the cards.

04/04/2017 - 11:51am Going to the Masters is

Going to the Masters is definitely very high up on my bucket list.  I have spoke to a few people that have gone and they said the same thing about TV just nt doing the course justice.  I have been putting my name in the draw every year for the past 5 years or so but no luck yet.  Hoping that I get lucky in the next few years and can take my dad.  I'm sure it would be a trip we will never forget!

04/04/2017 - 11:48am I want to see just one

I want to see just one tournament (hopefully this week) where you get Rory, DJ and Speith all having their A game.  I fully believe Rory and DJ are 1a and 1b when they have their best game.  They can shrink a course like no one else and when you pair that with great wedge play it is incredible to watch.  I put Speith just behind those 2 because he doesn't quite have a power they possess.  If Rory putts well this week I think he wins by 2-3 strokes.

04/04/2017 - 10:55am I like Rory this year.  If he

I like Rory this year.  If he can avoid the 74 he usually has on Thursday or Friday of every tournament the past year or so he could run away with it.  It's hard to bet against DJ the way he's playing but Rory treats The Masters the same way Tiger did.  He wants it so bad, loves the course and it suits his game well.  I just want to see a final pairing with 2 of Rory, DJ, Speith and Day on Sunday!

03/31/2017 - 10:04am It definitely is if you have

It definitely is if you have the day off work!  However, not sure my bosses would appreciate me having a pint of Blue Moon on my desk at lunch.  Beer O'Clock will be around 4pm for me today!

03/31/2017 - 9:29am Is it Beer O'Clock yet??

Is it Beer O'Clock yet??  Happy Friday all!!

03/28/2017 - 11:05am Windsor Kid

My fandom started with my love of college sports overtaking my love of professional sports.  When I was growing up watching sports with my dad it was geared more towards professional sports aside from Saturday college football.  He was a "Michigan fan" but never all the much into it.  In 1997 my stepdad brought me to Ann Arbor for the first time for the UM/OSU game.  Unfortunately we weren't able to get tickets but watched the game in a bowling alley bar near by.  I was a fan at that time as a 12 year old but nothing like I am today.  But the passion I experienced that day from Michigan fans, seeing the Big House (even from the ooutside) and having that be the first game I ever watched in totality locked me in for life!

Since that game I have become a bigger Michigan fan than anyone I know.  Unfortunately going to the school was never an option me as being from Windsor made in finacially impossible.  I live and die with everything Michigan football and basketball now and have already successfully brainwashed my wife and my 4 year old son.  My 2 year old daughter isn't far behind!

03/27/2017 - 10:05am Hayes

5 CBs for Hayes coming to Michigan since 8:30pm last night including Lorenz!  Must have been a decent visit yesterday!

Another fantastic video!!  I may watch this another 20 times before tip tonight!!

03/23/2017 - 11:04am That was a great read!!  Just

That was a great read!!  Just has me even more pumped for tonight's game and hopefully the deep run to follow.  Couldn't possibly be any more proud to be a Wolverine fan right now!

03/21/2017 - 10:16am Brooks is legit but if he

Brooks is legit but if he struggles early he will get frustrated.  When he gets frustarted he tends to play out of control and take really questionable shots along with his fair share of charges (as long as some one is willing to get in front of the freight train).  

This is why I think whoever gets the assignment of slowing him down is the key to our success in this game.  Assuming it's DJ at the start I think his length will drive Brooks crazy and get him frustrated early hopefully resulting in foul trouble.  

03/17/2017 - 10:06am Can we just get to tip off

Can we just get to tip off already?  My nerves can't take this waiting and anticipation!  GO BLUE!!!  Beat OSU!!

03/17/2017 - 9:56am Awesome job!!  That video

Awesome job!!  That video gave me goosebumps!!  Let's keep this magical run going!!

03/16/2017 - 1:14pm UVA is getting absolutely

UVA is getting absolutely dominated.  But UNCW has a tendency to go quiet offensively so this one isn't over by any means.

03/15/2017 - 12:42pm I will never forget my

I will never forget my reaction to Trey Burke's shot.  Probably because I embarassed myself in front of my wife's family.  They all know I am die hard Michigan fan so the yelling and screaming throughout the game didn't seem to come as any surprise to them.  However, when I jumped in the air and took my shirt off as Burke's shot went in, my wife's grandmother was mortified.  Admittedly not one of my prouder moments but that family still mentions it from time to time and gets a good laugh at my expense.

03/15/2017 - 9:33am Glad to see I'm not the only

Glad to see I'm not the only that picked those 2 upsets!  I wouldn't be surprised if MTSU beats Minnesota by double digits.  Don't know much about Winthrop but I have seen Butler a couple times and they don't impress me at all.

03/10/2017 - 12:31pm 4+ minute scoring drought

4+ minute scoring drought can't happen against a team like this.  Lucky to only be down 7 right now.  Hopefully the phantom tech lights a fire under us!

03/10/2017 - 9:02am Voted!!  Still up 45%-44% as

Voted!!  Still up 45%-44% as of 9am!

Great effort today!!  Let's hope we can come back well rested tomorrow and get on a run!

03/09/2017 - 1:55pm 1-10 from long range in the

1-10 from long range in the second half is a little ugly.  Could be the tired legs possibly.  Luckily the D is coming up huge!

03/09/2017 - 1:45pm I just read this as well

I just read this as well while watching the gamecast.  I guess given the circumstances JB may have felt it was better to get there and get the game out of the way ASAP so in the event they won they would have plenty of time to rest up before tomorrow's game.

03/09/2017 - 1:09pm Need a strong last 2:10 in

Need a strong last 2:10 in this half!!
