"playing the right way"

The Pistons embarrassing the Lakers who thought they'd trot their way to rings for Payton & Malone

08/24/2017 - 9:56am So much of the Northwestern

So much of the Northwestern campus' buildings are new developments in the last year or two, with more to come, and thanks in part to getting $10B off from the Lyrica drug patent. The student recreation building that will open in the next year or so with beach access will be the icing on the country club cake.

04/19/2017 - 12:56pm Being clutch isn't

Being clutch isn't necessarily something that can be taught. In the spring game, Peters played his best when the outcome of the game was in balance. On the other hand, Speight got worse as it went along. That doesn't have anything to do with experience. There's no reason to believe that Speight won't also choke away the big games again in 2017.

That's also assuming that Oklahoma is actually a good football team. Have they done anything to demonstrate they're better than Colorado this year?

Les Miles & Brian Kelly didn't reward their schools for extensions either!

Yes, have there been any instances where Harbaugh hasn't called it like it is? Those that thought he was hyping Ruddock last year to motivate Shane didn't seem to be proven correct. He seems to believe that honesty is the best policy.

The best teams play up to the competition. Not surprised with a conversative gameplan and mediocre performance. Is Ohio State also mediocre based on their performance today? We'll have to stay tuned...

Not everything that runs through your head is worth posting. :)

But would you trade a Michigan degree as well? I didn't go to the UofM for football, but it is an enjoyable benefit, win or lose.

It'd be nice if Adidas could make Harbaugh a shirt with the same "M" as his hat.

Also, Sharpie should sponsor the publicity that Harbaugh gives them and make a permanent marker in navy. They only make 3 colors.

Who is this Lucien fellow you speak of that I don't see on our roster or in a recent recruiting class? Sorry for my ignorance - I stopped paying attention to recruiting during Hoke's last year.

Jim will want you to feel our opponents' pain as well as our own, FWIW.

We are heading into battle.

Looking at the 49ers, he did turn a hopeless veteran version of Alex Smith into a quality QB and unearthed Kaepernick. He'll make it happen.

10/11/2014 - 6:57pm Look on the bright side of life

He probably wants to transfer with 4 years of eligibility.

Don't get too concerned about talent before we have a decent coach.

Don't listen to him, Rich. Blue has always been abusive.

09/08/2014 - 10:29am Generally, if you're a

Generally, if you're a teacher or a coach with students, if 100% of your interaction is positive, only parts of what you say or do will be effective. Students and players will be accountable when they know that there are responses they will receive from their coaches that are undesirable, especially if such respones are deserved. They also appreciate being encouraged, a la Brady Hoke, but Brady's inability to actually get angry at his players has a softening effect on their mental makeup. I believe that this rears its ugly head any time they start losing or go on the road - there's no capacity for overcoming adversity. I can't imagine the players would anticipate any external consequences for poor play, for example. If I do my best, that's all that matters!

I think he's transferring to OSU with a recommendation letter from Lloyd Carr.

As a fan, I am disappointed. He'll likely be asked to follow the late show "format." Delivering a nightly monologue doesn't seem like the best use of his strengths. At the same time, maybe he's growing tired of acting in the same role nightly; I understand that going mainstream could be a professional step forward for him.

There is already an accelerated timeline program, and the first round of patients have now been taking the drug for 2.5 years. The FDA is really dragging their heels on this.

So far it's worked 12/12 times without any complication. If the choice is to worry about whether or not it works vs. guaranteed death within years, it's an easy choice.

Great post! Yes, I hear it is warmer under Columbus.

Columbus is going to have to wait a while on Horton since he's going through surgery.

The Bruins and Blackhawks are looking a bit worse to me today.

Would be happy to see the Red Wings face my hometown Canucks in the SC next year.

I would like to NOT see the whole time standing around while just a few guys are working. Perhaps that's only done when the cameras are rolling, but it does seem to be a pattern. I would like to see Brady try to maximize every kids' chance for reps, running a more differentiated practice format as often as possible.

Just like that Mr.Webber above you.

01/09/2013 - 9:40pm Agreed. For me the biggest

Agreed. For me the biggest question mark is now the development of the interior linemen. I was pleased to see that the whole line seemed to improve between OSU and South Carolina. If the new guys can create holes for Derrick Green, the sky's the limit.

I'm not going to mention the word politics either.

12/16/2012 - 6:11pm This is naive. If you accept

This is naive. If you accept that recruiting rankings matter, it has been years since Michigan got a kid that was ranked within the top 20ish at the position of wide receiver. JeRon Stokes and Jeremy Gallon (barely) fit that bill a few years ago and they were undersized for our current needs. We've had no problem getting commits rated within the top 5 or 10 at their position at every position except for WR and RB, although Derrick Green may change that for RB. As of next year, we will be relying on having Darboh or Chesson play above their rankings. And those gentlemen were rated higher than our current crop of commits.

However, a great QB can certainly get the job done with serviceable WRs and a strong line - we see this in the NFL often. The NFL's top receivers rarely seem to be playing in the Super Bowl.

11/24/2012 - 9:51pm I agree with you at the end

I agree with you at the end there.

For years teams in the NFL like the Steelers and Bronocos have adopted an RB-by-committee approach because as long as you have a stout OL, any competent RB can hit the gaps that are created.

On 2nd and 2 or 3rd and 2, Borges should be able to call a play to put the ball in the arms of the tailback, but the play of the OL took that away.

Same as when we had Jay Hopson coaching LBs - we replaced him and Stevie Brown turned into a good LB. With our current OL coach, the same OL players that were competent last year have regressed week to week.

11/11/2012 - 5:13pm I think that is least

I think that is least relevant with the WR position. Sure, the attitude of a QB can determine much on a football team (see: Pryor, Terelle). But neither Braylong nor Manningham were "great guys," and yet they were absolutely fine at completing the task of running fast and catching balls.

11/11/2012 - 5:10pm Amen. Braylon was the

Amen. Braylon was the difference between some wins and losses. We can't say for sure that a stud WR wouldn't help win some games.

Recruiting - Don't hate the player, hate the game.

Getting laid is more fun than watching a team that's not Michigan.

09/25/2012 - 10:36pm I don't think anybody is

I don't think anybody is worried that Hoke's ceiling with Michigan has come and gone. In time there will be be better athletes and more accurate throwers.

Every lineup has been a bit of a let down since I went back in 2008. Can't top the headliners  of Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, and Rage Against The Machine. Not just great music, but great visuals, and I've never seen anything anywhere like the energy at RATM.

03/21/2012 - 10:14pm It is true that our most

It is true that our most talented players have established a trend of leaving as soon as possible. This is discouraging because it doesn't reflect the value of staying and getting a degree from UM. Unfortunately, it contrasts with OSU's basketball program where some players have stayed longer than anticipated. I think it makes you at least question the relationship between JB and his players, and the chemistry that the players either do or don't have with one another.

01/07/2012 - 3:15pm Next year's D Line...

I was curious to see how the younguns on the DL would do in this game - Campbell, Washington and Ash - but didn't really notice their presence while watching the game. Thoughts on them? How much PT did Washington and Ash get? Thanks.
