Once again I've overestimated the masses.  No doubt it was one of Brian's most laughable takes.

"Another good bet: in five years he'll be a better coach than Greg Mattison."

An odd and unlikely prediction. Once we become bitter we can no longer accurately assess our prior coaches? What is there from Nua's past that leads us to believe that in 5 years he'll be a better coach than Mattison? I'd love for that prediction to be correct but reeks of super hot mlive take prediction with a side of sour grapes. We're better than that.

(edit: if it was merely a reference to the fact that in 5 years one is coaching and the other isn't...therefore a better coach by default...then I retract my prior statement and instead say "ok".)

Michigan's recruiting class is better by all accounts, and by all services. They have a better crown jewel as well (Dax).

Using "daddy" is oddly perfect for a fan from Tennessee. Thanks for the laugh. Are you ok?

I wouldn't mention Tennessee basketball in the same breathe as Michigan basketball. It's just not a smart move for you.

Horrific post. if you need a moral compass I'd recommend sourcing outside the realm of athletes/entertainers.

09/25/2017 - 7:42pm happy gilmore

is far better than the empire strikes back of the star wars narnia series. almost had to stop reading after the first paragraph. get it together, brian.

to say this thread is a cesspool. some of you can't be real.

08/24/2016 - 7:21am you are the last person

who should comment on the necessity of threads.

06/12/2016 - 5:00am Can't believe

the Mike Hart run on 3rd and 9 vs SDSU in 2004 wasn't mentioned. Inside our own 10 yard line with under 2 minutes left and we very likely lose the game if not for his 10+ yard pick up. Lloyd-ballism to the max.

03/23/2016 - 6:16pm this thread

turned into a cesspool.


03/14/2016 - 8:12pm this^^

Barcari feels his impact his limited because of the role big men play in Beilein's offense. We don't recruit the type of big men Baraci is best fit to coach either.

03/11/2016 - 5:47pm Hahahaha


03/06/2016 - 9:23am shaken to the core?

at 30 my core is no longer dismantled by semi-pro athletics. if your core is shaking, i recommend help or hobbies.

09/29/2015 - 10:14pm holy cow

Love the progress, but I'm still in "I just hope we beat Maryland" mode.

07/05/2015 - 3:48pm 67, twice

67, twice. putt everything out. no handicap, no spot in our game.

if no warm up first, you can take two off the first tee. but if you hit two, you have to play the 2nd.

03/26/2015 - 6:02pm AZ is gross

shouldn't be a tough sell. Grand Rapids is only 1.5 hours from Arcadia as well, show her a picture of the 12th hole and if that doesn't turn the tide just divorce her.

just to say how much i hate this. 

08/22/2014 - 6:15pm drafting this early??


08/11/2014 - 1:51pm ahhh

so Detroit fans have never made reference to Chicago except when a Chicago team is present? I'll need to see a work cited for your claim.

LOL at Chicago being "little brother" to Detroit in anything.

08/03/2014 - 3:21am can't tell if you're serious...

but U2 is awful.

11/08/2013 - 8:30pm you are wrong

and you've been quite the jerk in the process of being wrong. not a good combo. go blue.

08/24/2013 - 7:50pm Stevie Brown

Just picked off Geno Smith but was injured on the return. Couldn't really tell what happened but looked to be holding his knee. Stevie was 2nd in the NFL last year with 8 interceptions. Hopefully he's OK.

06/14/2013 - 6:50pm Used them all and is the best and most reliable.

02/05/2013 - 2:33pm you underlined many words, made them bold as well,

not sure why.

my opinion is the same, you are entitled to your violence. 

02/05/2013 - 1:17pm he has nothing to apologize for


01/23/2013 - 5:43pm always thought

it was weird that his plea was based off the testimony against his two friends...yet both were later aquitted.

10/17/2012 - 11:29am unfortunately you are wrong...

After living in Prague for nearly three years I can say that Europeans fully grasp how awful baseball is.

02/23/2012 - 1:14pm Thank you for sharing

I had the opportunity to meet Percy when I interviewed him for a large project I was doing on minorities in the coaching ranks of college football. He met with me on several occasions for over an hour each time and naturally our conversations would turn towards the game. Percy loved  Michigan football.  The one thing that I will always be in debt to him for was when he took off his '97 title ring and let me try it on.

08/02/2011 - 10:43pm edit

nothin to see here

05/08/2011 - 7:59pm my distribution

If I were King...assuming 23 spots available I see 21 we have to set aside for positions.

QB: 1 - Have to take one

OL: 5 - Whether you include Williams or not

TE: 2 - Whether you include Williams or not

WR: 2 - Depth chart scares me

DT: 2

DE: 3

LB: 4 - Full

CB: 1

S: 1

That leaves two scholarships for the best talent regardless of position. Don't think I'd look any further at LB though. Personally I would like to see them spent on another DB, or if possible, a stud RB.

04/18/2011 - 8:25am should tell your friends

to quit making things up

04/18/2011 - 8:24am ok tell RVB

then since he brought it up?

Give me a break, this is a blog not the locker room.

04/10/2011 - 1:54pm I like it

I'm not fond of officials either

04/08/2011 - 6:24am eh?

it was the frozen 4, step it up rookie.

We had 3 UM grads huddled around my slingbox til 5am here in Prague. Had the UM flag hangin out the window for allllll the czech to marvel at.

03/06/2011 - 7:21pm Please don't

use the term walmart wolverine. Even as an alum some of the biggest UM fans I know did not attend the school. A byproduct of a pretty badass thing is that people are going to like it. The more the merrier. I'm not saying you're being anything other than lighthearted, I just hate the term.

As far as the atmosphere, it sounded pretty loud to me. Students are on spring break as well so that would speak for the lack of jumping around assuming the general population could buy tickets down there as they usually can for voided season ticket games.

03/06/2011 - 9:51am i think we are in good shape

now, a lock with a win over the Illini....but let's just win the whole damn B10 tourny to be safe.

03/06/2011 - 8:16am Thank you

rival fan. This only feels so good because MSU has been so good. For what that's worth...

03/05/2011 - 8:49am aw man

I thought you were going to ask why people at UVA have 3 and 4 names like Hank Harvey Meyer Smith IV and Juliette Marie Jones- Collins VIII. Perhaps you would ask next about why they drink memosas like high school freshman on gamedays or why the  "3rd years" go back to "the lawn" to pass out instead of going to the game.

With so many curious things to wonder about UVA I am disappointed this was about lacrosse.

02/25/2011 - 6:44pm in and out of the B10

Univerzita Karlova v Praze = A+

Michigan = A

UVA = C-/D+ (have to take the people into consideration)

American University = F

NW = B

Purdue = D

Colorado = A

Duke = A

Wisco = A

ND = C-

Villanova = B

UF = A

UCF = C+


MU (OH) = A


02/19/2011 - 2:07pm ah yes

the token dbag comment. good stuff.

02/15/2011 - 5:14pm we're 16-10

with an already solid rpi and sos. a win against the illini will get us to 17-10 and 7-7 in the #1 conference according to the rpi.

a win tomorrow and our chances improve enormously.

01/21/2011 - 1:19pm it were

real was nice. hoke did that spoke was good.

01/13/2011 - 7:02pm it was mentioned

on here a couple days ago i think. tate is enrolling at a community college with the hopes of coming back to michigan, at least iirc.

01/12/2011 - 3:12am disagree on a number of levels

but I'll just focus on recruiting. first, the knock on stu and zach is weird considering beilein had 3 weeks to assemble a class and as juniors they are an assets to a middle of the pack big10 team. they are the only upper classmen.

beilein since that time has pulled in top 100 players in morris, smotz, and next year with brundige. both vogrich and hardaway jr., were both top 150 recruits, and 2011 burke and 2012 robinson III are both fringe top 100 players.

01/12/2011 - 3:10am first double post

cherry popped.

12/31/2010 - 12:25am fall saturdays

and the other 355 days a year aren't mutually exclusive.
