05/09/2018 - 12:28am I think people really

I think people really underestimate how hard it is for a QB to develop when you don’t trust your line.

04/02/2018 - 10:14pm 10 points

10 points...that’s how many the refs have given them.

Let’s you play aggressive when you can slap at every shot and Michogan can’t touch them without a foul.

I’m biased...I’m just sick of it

03/29/2018 - 9:08pm As a side note

A photo memory thread like what ace put together the other day may be fun if someone wants to do it

03/22/2018 - 2:08pm Thanks sir!

48.12

10/03/2017 - 8:56pm He has the tools

I could see if he got in an offense where he could just play and not think he could be successful.

Too bad that never really happened at Michigan

07/25/2017 - 12:18pm I agree.
It will start with

I agree.

It will start with the Hot takes...

Then there will be the assholes that wants to be smarter than everyone else, that argues that Michigan should have someone better...but not be able to name any realistic candidates that would be better.

07/11/2017 - 5:58pm Man it grosses me out when

Man it grosses me out when people rip on the maturity of kids.

He was a fun kid to watch, and he made some mistakes, like all of us.

05/01/2017 - 10:39am Kids should be drafted out of

Kids should be drafted out of high school, their scholarship paid for by the team that drafted them, and the school should pay for their insurance policy based on where they were drafted.

That way kids could leave whenever they and the team think they are ready, and the school doesn't have to pay the kids.

04/29/2017 - 2:05pm I hope he goes to either the

I hope he goes to either the Saints or the Pats

03/24/2017 - 10:19am I'm really going to miss

I'm really going to miss watching these guys play.

03/23/2017 - 9:12pm Great season. Love these

Great season. Love these guys.

03/23/2017 - 9:10pm This was a great season. So

This was a great season. So proud of these guys. They fight so hard. So proud.

03/19/2017 - 6:50pm I'm so damn proud of this

I'm so damn proud of this team. A bunch of great kids the put in the work and overcame adversity.

03/18/2017 - 9:28pm I've heard a lot of talking

I've heard a lot of talking heads have this take too...but I have a hard time imaging any coach having any other reaction....coach B included

03/17/2017 - 3:46pm I'm just so damn proud of

I'm just so damn proud of these guys.

03/09/2017 - 1:25pm When this team gets stops it

When this team gets stops it is at another level.

03/09/2017 - 11:30am As long as we continue to

As long as we continue to have it...I don't want to know what that tastes like...then have it ripped away from me.

03/08/2017 - 4:48pm PFF estimated that he'd get

PFF estimated that he'd get $12 M. Seems like a solid addition.

02/28/2017 - 1:15pm Good Return. 3rd - 2017, 2nd

Good Return. 3rd - 2017, 2nd - 2018. 

02/28/2017 - 1:10pm Two-party tribalism...I'm

Two-party tribalism...I'm going to steal that. Party over Country...

02/16/2017 - 9:02pm They are not a great D

They are not a great D team...but they did have some great stops! Donnal with the blocked shot? What?

02/05/2017 - 12:57pm I love coach B

1. He is a great coach - he has really developed players...in the past.

2. He's had some bad misses in recruiting - I really feel that if we hit on one of the recent big time players we've missed on...would of completely changed the team. We really haven't had an Alpha player since Caris went down...we need an Alpha.

3. Who would you replace him with? Serious question.

02/05/2017 - 12:46pm That is the opposite of true

Numbers don't lie...but stats absolutely do.

You can absolutely look at the same numbers, and choose whatever story you want based on the stats that you use.

Stats lie...I do it all the time for my job.

02/05/2017 - 12:37pm What makes me mad...

I can't believe they sorted the list by first name!

Not by number of stars! Not by position!...by first name!...that is as useful/interesting as sorting it randomly!

Going through that list really made me want to punch the author in the face.

01/30/2017 - 7:01pm In a free country

In a free country anyone can talk about politics.

01/26/2017 - 9:29pm Wow defense!

I love the way that Amie and DJ are playing together

01/10/2017 - 1:07pm 100% agree

Even though we don't have "starters" returning...doesn't mean we don't have key rotation players returning who were quasi starters.

Case in point. Smith is our RB starter...even though other RBs carried the load more than him in some games this year.

Our weakness isn't a rotational player stepping up it's the question marks.

I'm worried about.
LT, RT, ILB2, Viper, CB2, Slot, and Safety.

...and just for fun here are my projections at those spots

LT - Cole
RT - Bredeson
ILB2 - Bush
Viper - Hudson
CB2 - Long
Slot - Hill
Safety - Metellus

Hopefully our pass rush is amazing next year...or the kids grow up fast.

12/05/2016 - 7:19pm Live in Denver

I met a rival coach that said that he thought Luke was the most talented of all the kids...for what it's worth.

12/02/2016 - 6:00pm Before that last punt...he

Before that last punt...he was arguably the MVP for Michigan in that game...too bad.

12/02/2016 - 3:04pm I agree

Also, while watching with how big screens are common I don't know why they don't show synchronized pictures for replays for the viewer.

Two pictures or even four at a time.

11/16/2016 - 7:53pm I didn't know I could love

I didn't know I could love her more...but I do. Now I just have to learn how to throw a 100mph fastball.

09/17/2016 - 4:42pm Is there some kind of team

Is there some kind of team wide virus? The whole team looks awful

09/15/2016 - 4:57pm Ugh god

I feel gross living in CO

09/06/2016 - 4:46pm Darboh!

Darboh sets critical block for a screen to... Darboh.

I missed this live..wow!...awesome!

07/03/2016 - 8:48am Hahah...this was my

Hahah...this was my experience as well!

Luckily I got 3rd place and someone else has to be commish.

Advice...all rules and ethics around trades need to be well established....and if you veto trades that both teams want...fair or not...the you're an asshole.

06/30/2016 - 11:38am Dumbass

I'm so fucking sorry that your coach raped kids, and that makes is hard for you to recruit.

What a dipshit.

If you want to move on, ask everyone of those kids, and all of there family's for forgiveness, and once they move on, you can.

Until then, shut the hell up and live in the shit storm your school caused. If you get paid by a school that did this, then you take on their obligations too.

03/16/2016 - 6:09pm Final Ranking

I justed used the final ranking

03/16/2016 - 6:08pm Couple of examples

Here are some more examples to answer the comments above:

IF there was a 1st four in this system:

Some interesting teams that would miss the field:

Indiana vs. Iowa

There are absolutely flaws in this system (home vs away, margin of victory, teams ranked 150+, the arbitrary nature of a 24th ranked team vs 26th, etc)

When I looked at teams on the bubble I looked at how many top teams did you beat (Top 25), how you did vs. your peers (25-100), and if you lost to any bad teams (100+).  I don't think losing to a great team, or beating a horrible team should mean much.  I then put a ranking system together that generally matched that.

I'm a bit of a nerd and liked the output of the numbers...hope some of you found it interesting too.

Cheers!

03/15/2016 - 10:02pm 1.

1. I agree that an away victory is harder than a home victory. My thought process was to use a straight point system like the NHL which doesn't reward away victories. Does it matter? Sure. I like the simplistic approach though, as it allows you to know where you stand, and how much a loss/victory means.

2. I thought about this...and landed on a victory visa crappy team (over a hundred) should be worth 1 point.

3. It is hard, and will always be hard for mid-majors. Completely agree.

The fun part of this system, to me, is its simplicity, fairness, and ability to let you know where you stand.

It isn't perfect, for sure, and that wasn't the thought/intention.

Also to note:

1. It is based on final RPI (since it's easy to calculate)
2. Little Rockis in twice (I had to correct the file after I realized I had Louisville in...and mad an error)
3. I only have 64 teams as that's how it should be
4. Temple got bumped by a tournament champ
5. I'm sure it wont be implemented due to me being a guy on the internet, and not a guy in charge of things.

03/05/2016 - 9:40pm Horrible Home Refs...

Am I biased? I just get used to having bad refs when we are away...but it always seems like we don't get the 50/50 calls or even the 60/40 calls otherteams do when we are home

02/16/2016 - 7:57pm I can't be mad at Mich

I can't be mad at Mich...I have no clue what is going on with this game.

02/16/2016 - 7:16pm What just happened?

Who knows the refs are blocked, the ball is blocked...but you can see up someone's ass so that's nice.

02/16/2016 - 7:12pm Can't see!

Move the hell out of the way!

Oh yeah your the official or another player blocking the camera...

02/16/2016 - 7:07pm Ahhhhh

You can't tell what is going on with this angle. God damn it. I'm pissed.

02/04/2016 - 5:58pm CO

...it's Colorado...my guess it was about things that happen 20 minutes after 4.

01/20/2016 - 8:42pm Ha!

01/20/2016 - 7:03pm Senior In High School

The kids a kid, and still does kid stuff, while a whole bunch of adults watch....

Let's give this kid a break and let him make the biggest decision of his life (to date) with a little less judgement.

...steps off soapbox

01/12/2016 - 11:19pm Every time

Every time Donnal does something my reaction is...

"What the hell?....Donnal!"
