I enjoy IF as well. There are some promising studies to longterm health benefits. Much of the purported benefits are overblown yet at it's base as a diet strategy to help people limit total food intake it works. When I diet I prefer big meals at night and that is when I would often cheat. It's great with IF being able to diet and still eating a 1,000 calorie meal at night. Certainly, not for everyone but it crushes my cravings as well.

06/14/2018 - 10:08pm This is going to come off…

This is going to come off asshole-ish. And I swear to heaven all mighty I am not trying to be. Like genuinely not at all. But it's one of those times this is going to read like I'm a douche rocket. 

We really need to be careful with comments like that. The only way you lost weight is if you were in a deficit. You will not lose weight if you are not in a deficit. If someone did they would be breaking the laws of thermodynamics and changing everything we know about human biology.

We do have some studies that show people in keto lose slightly more bodyfat than those eating carbs.We have as many studies showing there is absolutely no difference. And most keto studies are short term and it's hard to control for calories and exercise. In the longest studies there are some serious concerns about triglycerides which is something we often see with people on longterm keto and have to get them off keto because of it. 

People usually think they are losing weight in a surplus because they are either not calculating activity/calories correctly and the amount of water loss throws them off. On keto at maintenance level carbs I usually lose 10-12 pounds the first couple weeks which is all water.

To say that carbs/insulin is the only way you gain fat is just patently untrue. I have to be honest (and prepare for this to sound dick-ish but it's not meant to be) most of what you typed is pseudo science. We actually have a ton of peer reviewed studies and one after another we can see how keto works and how it compares to a diet with carbs. You can bulk on keto. I've bulked on a 300-500 daily calorie surplus on no carbs. 

I would suggest any diet completely cutting out an entire segment of food is generally not the route I would go. That said, I'm also not anti low carb. Cutting out sugary, processed foods absolutely makes sense and many aspects of keto are great.

Now, all that being said I HAVE used keto many times. Why? The one thing we know for sure is it will curb appetite and make dieting easier. When it's time to get shredded there is nothing better as the appetite control being in keto gives you makes dieting so much easier. 

We will probably agree to disagree on much of this which is totally cool but the losing weight on a surplus thing is hard science. I also realize there are many websites and "guru's" claiming you can do this. It's a great shtick to make money and advertise. 

peace and love, peace and love Go Blue, this post was not meant to come off poorly if it did.


04/16/2018 - 7:54am Generally speaking I'd say

Generally speaking I'd say you are right on and to be fair I think most realize that. The S&C position is an important one but it isn't nuclear physics (is that a thing?). Proper programming and nutrition isn't THAT difficult . Don't get me wrong 'm not saying his overall job is easy in fact the organization and execution may be one of the hardest of any of the coaches in the program. But the fact is unless you are monumentally screwing up programining, nutrition, and tne execution you shouldn't notice a massive difference from strength coach to strength coach. This is mostly "feel good" stuff...which is cool...but I'd actually be quite concerned if there was a huge, tangible difference. That would mean past S&C coach was highly incompetant which I do not believe was the case. He just may not have been the right fit at Michigan. 

04/16/2018 - 7:47am I'm having a tough time with

I'm having a tough time with optimism myself. Let's take a gander at the schedule. I put a "WIN" by games that if they don't win I will punch myself in the face. I put five "TOSS UP" games of which three are on the road...and they are three rivaly games.

I see a path for a solid 10 win season. With three games to three rivals on the road there is really no room for error though. I'd call 10-2 the ceiling, 9-3 likely, and 8-4 the floor. 

This is an odd season. I don't know if I remeber a year where I wouldn't be that shocked if the team was 7-5 or 10-2.

02/22/2018 - 10:40am I have to give my wife credit

I have to give my wife credit with her being a new yorker this whole "college sports thing" boggled her mind at first. They are so pro sports oriented she was schocked the first time I took her to a michigan game that "100,000 would watch kids play a game". 

We also live in Columbus, OH and she wears her Michigan stuff all over town and takes the abuse so she is a a trooper I think she may want to go to a game. 

That said, we are staying right at the renaissance in times square so shopping may win out lol. 

02/22/2018 - 8:12am my wife and I will be in NYC

my wife and I will be in NYC next thurs-sun as i bought her a suprise trip for her birthday. Totally forget the tournament was in NYC. Maybe I can slip in a game!

01/25/2018 - 8:12am Out of curiosity has there

Out of curiosity has there been any talk about what parents knew or heard? I'm just curious. I worked with women's gymnastics at bowling green (i'm an athletic trainer) years back and honestly unless there is a major medical issues most of the athletes just get treatment and go about there day. But I also wonder how many parents were told and what they did with the info? This is a very sensitive thing to talk about (which shows how courageous these women are) so many of them may not have said anything to their parents.

I just wonder because from my experience a whole lot of dads would be showing up the next day if their daughter told them this. Actually, a whole lot of dads would have been showing up at nassar's office in my experience. On the other hand as someone who has been very close to gymnastics and that whole culture it's freaking weird. The culture is "listen to your coaches and shut the f*ck up" at the elite level. 

I assume what happened is a few young women bravely told people at msu and they were ignored or virtually threatened to not say anything and the women just were quiet after that. 

I hope they map out the entire thing so we can see what happened and prevent it from happening in the future. I honestly can't even read these articles it makes me want to kill someone.

12/19/2017 - 3:41pm And this happens all the time

And this happens all the time at running back. Actually, probably at RB more than any other position for high school football players. There are some BALLERS in high school that kick ass playing RB and then end up going to a DIII school. 

Where I grew up, Canton, OH, you see this all the time. High school football capital of the world you see badass RB's with insane stats all the time and they often end up at Mount Union. They are relatviely fast, but not elite fast, and they are tough as nails. It allows you to rack up some insane stats and production in high school. 

That's not a knock on these guys...I was in that general mold. 

PS: I'm not necessarily referring to the guy the OP is referring to but just in general why you can't just offer on production especially at RB.

Double posted for you bitches. Hope everyone is haveing a good Saturday.

Two improvements would radically improve this board...

1. Make the quote function like every other modern day message board where it actually quotes who/what you are replying to. The quote function is crazy here.

2. Organize the forum. You should simply be able to click on “message boards” and then have various sections ie: Michigan football, Michigan basketball, other sports, off topic, etc etc FFS make a politics and religion section if you want but that way that shit stays in that section and people know it.

I LOVE his board and been reading since 09 and joined in 11 but I don’t understand how there isn’t some basic organization in place for the message boards. Really simple and fairly cheap fixes.

I'm not sure if this is a serious post but you can't take it so serious. It's a message board full of anonymous people. The board is a little more stuffy than others but I rather enjoy it. Most of the message boards I go to are bodybuilding related and it's rough...

In the last three months on a board I go to a member selling steroids to another got ripped off and showed up at his house and shot his dog 5 times...that's a real story. 

That isn't happening here, which is nice. Lot of good people here...put a smile on your face, keep posting, and enjoy it man. 

If you are just a troll jokes on me and kudos for the effort.

12/08/2017 - 8:02am I like it to start the year.

I like it to start the year. This team will be ready. What a statement win that woudl be to start the year. Hell yeah. 

Only thing that sucks a bit is if it were noon I'd think about going...I can't handle the ND fans at a night game though. Maybe I'm just a sissy...probably that...but oh well. 

Go Blue!

12/07/2017 - 7:51am To fully feel "yes, success"

To fully feel "yes, success" I look at these items...

1. Win 10 games: I get that is an "old school" mindset but if you win 10 games you are likely legit good. With a bowl game this should happen MOST years. Hell we feel like this is a horrible year and UM may win 9.

2. Beat OSU when it's at UM and 1 out of every 3 osu games on the road

3. Beat MSU 3 out of every 4 years. No excuse with recruiting at this point.

4. OWN winning at MIchigan. UM should virtually never lose when the game is at UM.


The rest as far as playoff and shit will take care of itself if the above are completed as a baseline. If UM is doing that they will get the chance for the playoff, they will get a big ten title shot, they will be a routine top 10 team.

12/05/2017 - 8:22am Whether you like the tweet or

Whether you like the tweet or not it felt like the past few weeks like Harbaugh is "back". I am keenly aware that is just stupid "fan feelings" and that Harbaugh never mentally likely was "gone". Either way it feels (there is that word again) like the fiesty harbaugh is back which I like. 

Again, I know this is all feelings and shit which means nothing. Just win. 

12/04/2017 - 8:10am I know it's not the most

I know it's not the most exciting matchup but I think it's a good one for this young Michigan team. I like the bowl years when UM has a young team as you usually see a motivated team coming out to play like it's a fall Saturday verse a veteran team just kind of dissapointed. Sort of like year one with Harbaugh against Florida. I bet we see a jacked up team coming out to play. It's almost like young teams view a game like this as "week 1" of '18. 

Who knows I'm excited though. I really hope UM wins this game. the last three years would be 10,10, and 9 wins with the hope of '18 being a big farking year! Lots of things didn't go UM's way and we are all disspointed with some games but let's go!

12/01/2017 - 7:55am That team is talented AF.

That team is talented AF. Schedule is tough...I have high expectations. I look forward to this team winning 2 of 3 of osu/nd/msu, dropping one other random game and finishing 10-2 in the big ten title hunt. 

Really wish way back we had an AD that navigated the schedule so msu and osu home/away were on opposing years. I'm sure easier said that done but it woudl be great if that were the case. 

11/30/2017 - 11:13am But that is not at all what

But that is not at all what really matters...why would that for any reason be "all that matters"? Look I'm dissapointed the way this year went and I can think of three games that are just excrutating (iowa, '16 osu, '17 msu). But the entire body of work they've done is incredibly important and the best way to compare all three. I'm not saying we shouldn't even weigh head to head more heavily but total record and other items are certainly important to compare these coaches. 

11/29/2017 - 8:46am This game isn't going to be a

This game isn't going to be a cakewalk. They have major does UM. I am hopeful with this UM defense and a healthy Peters it's a good showing. 

I actually like the matchup as it's a game Michigan should win but will certainly have to play well. This team needs a win and I'd love to see this young team beat USC and then propel into the offseason. 

I don't know how anyone can think UM is going to smash USC. This UM team needs to do a lot of growing on offense before they smash anyone with a pulse. 

11/27/2017 - 9:33am There is an important point

There is an important point you hit on...and that is the years of RR and Hoke were detrimental to this program. I don't think a lot of UM fans have come to realize what that did. I think it set teh program back a decade and while programs like OSU plowed forward you had programs like UM, Tenn, and some others take a huge body blow. That stuff isn't fixed over night 

As far as Harbaugh I think the simple rub is he gets so much attention for not acheiving excellence and for the amount of attention he gets people expect excellence. That isn't always the case and it's TBD to see if he is a Tier 1 college coach. Only a small handful of guys in that tier. I'd put him at 1b though to be honest. 

It's always one extreme to the other "he sucks and can't get it done" or "he's nick saban" maybe it's just as simple as he is a really good coach, a great fit for UM and overall the team is on the right track yet we are all dissapointed in a handful of performances, and that is leaving us feeling a little "meh" at times...and that's ok. 

I don't think the world hangs on next year either. I do think for him to be that "top tier" guy a year like this should be the basement and solidly the worst it can get at 8-4, and basically every year we are in the conference hunt to the end of the year (which would mean we are likely in the playoff hunt). Yes year is a big year but it's not NC or bust next year. 

There are literally 3 games that would make me feel 1000 times better. Last year Iowa, last year osu, and this year msu. If UM got it done those three games I think the perception is totally different. 

11/27/2017 - 8:15am This is weird this year. Last

This is weird this year. Last year at this time it just sucked after the osu loss this year is maybe the most genuinely excited I've been about the next year. I'm not a "we'll get em next year guys!" type of guy but I am jacked up about next year. 

I hope UM shows up big in the bowl to kick off next year right. I hope we see this young team come out excited as hell to set the tone to start next year. This is a big offseason for Michigan. Harbaugh has talked about "getting stronger" much of that is metaphorical talk about mindset and toughness but I think a lot of that is literal. A whole lot to get done for these young guys in prep for next year and all we can do is wait and see.

11/27/2017 - 8:05am These are the years bowl

These are the years bowl games are fun. Bowl games like last year kind of suck when a senior packed team underperforms and is in some meaningless bowl it just feels very "meh". When a young team like UM goes to a bowl it sort of feels like the start of the next season sort of like when UM played florida two years ago. I'm much more excited for the bowl this year than last and hope UM shows up big. 

11/27/2017 - 7:49am That offense looks damn good!

That offense looks damn good! Maybe the injury bug can move on to another team and leave us alone next year and if so that offense is talented as all get out. VERY high ceilings on those skill guys. 

11/24/2017 - 6:23pm 37-13 osu. OSU comes out

37-13 osu. OSU comes out strong and goes up 14-0 but the UM defense steps up and holds steady and it’s 14-10 at half. OSU beats the breaks off of UM in the 3rd and by end of the game the boys in blue look like a bunch of beat up Thailand ladyboys. It’s so ugly you, yourself, can’t face your wife so you get on Craigslist to find a tranny of your own and have your first ladyboy experience in a shady part of Detroit.

I’ll be heading up to AA from Columbus at 3am. GO BLUE!!! It will always be GO BLUE!

11/24/2017 - 6:15pm I’d say 37-13 osu. I bet this

I’d say 37-13 osu. I bet this will be very psu game like. Osu scores a couple times early then the um defense responds but offense looks like an old bag of beat up testicles. In the 3rd quarter osu goes hambone and turns UM into their little girlfriends and by the end of the game the whole team looks like a bunch of Thailand ladyboys prancing around the field.

I’ll be leaving Columbus at 3am and will watch every minute hoping I’m wrong. GO BLUE!

As a side note holly crap I called that Wisconsin game damn near down the play.

11/24/2017 - 2:52pm Agree 1000%. OSU game last

Agree 1000%. OSU game last year and MSU game this year are games that I think if they were a W would make the entire fanbase feel differently right now. They just felt like games um should have won against our rivals.

11/24/2017 - 2:40pm I don’t think I’ve felt this

I don’t think I’ve felt this way about the game since ‘ there is literally 0.0% chance. I’ll be there but I’m anticipating this game over early.

The defense is awesome burn it can’t hold up with a woeful offense.

11/22/2017 - 8:48am JOK seems like a really cook

JOK seems like a really cook dude. I know his college career has had a lot of ups and downs and I'm sure tha thas been frustrating for him at times. Wouldn't it be something to see him beat osu? With all the frustrating times what a cap that would put on his career. Either way seems like a great kid so good luck to him with whatever the future holds. 

11/22/2017 - 7:57am Nice analysis; not douchey

Nice analysis; not douchey buckeye post is not douchey so give credit where do. I think UM will do a great job overall against the osu offense my concern is there will be a handful of big's just going to happen and it will put at least 24 points on the board for osu. It's hard for me to see UM scoring 4 touchdowns or more likely 9-10 field goals lol. 

With the offense struggling as it is there is a similar routine that happens in these big games...ti's a push for 3ish quarters and then the young defense just can't quite hold up (I mean shit they can't do it all!) and the offense just goes into a bigger shell and things get ugly. 

Oh that and our quarterbacks keep getting assaulted. 

11/22/2017 - 7:50am I'll tell you EXACTLY what

I'll tell you EXACTLY what I'll do....

With I win I will eat a dozen krispy kreme donuts and three double bacon cheesburgers from five guys with a huge smile on my face while I text all my buckeye friends.

With a loss I'll probably pound down shitty tim hortons donuts on my drive back from ann arbor to home in columbus with a big sad face and probably eat some shitty burger king with it. 

11/22/2017 - 7:47am Damn there are tons of

Damn there are tons of tickets selling for less than face value. I have about 10 buckeye friends who bought tickets on stub hub who have never gone before but tickets are so available and cheap they snagged them up. They are good dudes but that is 10 more red jerseys in the stadium. 

11/21/2017 - 8:31am THIS X 10,000. A lockdown,

THIS X 10,000. A lockdown, out of this world defense, and a stud qb are two ways you win as an underdog. A freakish qb in college can play you into a game damn near like LBJ can in a basketball game. It's a position that just impacts so much of the team overall when it plays "above itself". 

It's why we often had a lot of luck when Denard was around. Those teams had major freaking issues including coaching but he was a freakish athlete. 

11/21/2017 - 8:23am Holly shit you can find

Holly shit you can find tickets from $75-$90 now and even as low as $92 on stubhub. UM fans are selling their tickets left and right. 

This is looking l ike '08 all over again. I'll be there so don't blame me! 

11/20/2017 - 8:08am I agree there are some really

I agree there are some really tough 3rd and long conversions that have occured but no defense is perfect. This defense gave up 17 points to the #5 team on the road. That shit has to be enough. 

I'm not saying we can analyze and be critical but for all the great stuff the defense does there is going to be some bad...every defense has a weakness that will be expoited at times. 

11/20/2017 - 8:04am This sounds insane but from a

This sounds insane but from a pure physical ability stanpoint at this point in their career I don't think JOK holds UM back as much. The problem is it's not necessarily the physical stuff that is the issue. It's like with JOK the wires are always crossed. When he shoudl go deep he checks down, when he should check down he throws deep into double coverage, when he should run he doesn't. It's the mental part that he just can't overcome. I'm not laying it on him because honestly when you look at his overall physical ability I think he has enough to get the job done. does Harbaugh work with him this week to limit the critical mental errors? JOK can run the whole playbook but maybe he shouldn't. Keep it super simple and vanilla outside of a couple plays and limit his choices. Simple reads, and hope for a good run game. Shots at the TE in middle of field, screens and short passes and hope for the best. 

It's hard to imagine him not fumbling or throwing 1-3 picks this game. 

Damn I wish Peters or WS was healthy. 

11/20/2017 - 7:48am From an absolute physical

From an absolute physical ability standpoint at this point in their career (key words there) I actually agree JOK gives as good a chance. But I said "physical". His problem, and pardon me for laying on a 22  year old kid, is in his head. When he should use his legs he doesn't, when he should check down he throws deep in double coverage, when he should throw deep he checks down. It's like the wires are constantly crossed or the game is just too damn fast for him most of the time. 

11/20/2017 - 7:42am It's going to suck a bag of

It's going to suck a bag of assholes when the stadium is 40% osu fans like '08. I'll be there with UM gear on as always so don't blame me ;)

11/19/2017 - 9:42am As I posted in another thread

As I posted in another thread the people pissed about “not winning now damnit!” are misplacing their anger towards this years team. This was going to be how this year went outside of the MSU game which is inexcusable. In many ways ‘15 and ‘17 were destined to be kinda similar years with ‘16, ‘18, and ‘19 being years the team should be top tier playing for a conference championship.

The way I look at it ‘16 was a missed opportunity. 100% should have beaten osu and been 11-1 minimum.

‘18 and ‘19 are the years. Period. That doesn’t mean NC or bust that means they should be a top 10 team all year, winning 10-11 games (before the bowl), winning most big games and fighting for a playoff spot.

I really think most of us are still pissed about last year which unequivocally should have beaten tosu and Iowa and been 12-0. It was a hugely missed opportunity.

11/18/2017 - 7:56pm I honestly think most of the

I honestly think most of the rage is pent up anger from last year. Last years team should have gone undefeated. Period. You guys are mad at your current girlfriend based on something your last girlfriend did. Last year was THE YEAR. Should have gone 12-0 and played in the BT championship game.

There are key games this team did just not deliver.

‘15 went as I expected. MSU game sucked but shit happens.
‘16 shit the bed @iowa and @tosu THIS IS WHERE YOUR ANGER IS COMING FROM
‘17 went as expected except for MSU game.

There are three games that are literally clawing at us UM fans (@iowa, @tosu, MSU). If those three are w’s I think much of the pent up anger is toned down. PSU and UW are better than UM this year. Fine. MSU is not and that was a terrible loss.

Nobody in their right mind wants harbaugh gone and I think we’d all be cool with a 9-3 rebuilding year this year if some of the house key games above where UM was better and should have won lost.

11/18/2017 - 2:57pm It going to be like getting

It going to be like getting hit with a bag of dicks when tosu farking steamrolls UW and makes the CFP.

11/18/2017 - 12:20pm Great start!

Great start!

11/18/2017 - 12:03pm Damn I know it’s 11am local

Damn I know it’s 11am local time but tons of empty seats. Actually the few UW games I’ve web stadium has had a lot of open seats.

11/18/2017 - 11:45am We’d all be throwing up by

We’d all be throwing up by 12:10 lol.

11/18/2017 - 8:35am Lol my 5 year old watching

Lol my 5 year old watching sing right now.

11/18/2017 - 8:33am He gets on these weird

He gets on these weird tangents at times but I’ve always thought he was alright. He actually does see through a lot of bulllshit. Inckuding Hoke being over his head (which didn’t take I genius I get).

I do like he is a clear harbaugh supporter though so yeah I’m biased. I’m a little confused by his pick though. He started his show with “Wisconsin will beat Michigan and Michigan fans will blame harbaugh and call him an average coach’s and their wrong”.

I think he was torn due to the game at UW. Frankly, I bet a lot more people would be on upset alert if the game was in AA.

11/18/2017 - 8:25am As Michigan fans we are

As Michigan fans we are probably overstating what a win would mean but damn a win against a top 5 team on the road?!?! That would be insane!

11/18/2017 - 8:22am Glorious day today...

Glorious day today...

1. Fresh coffee
2. Cheat meals and 10,000 calories all day
3. Michigan kicking ass (hopefully)
4. Naps
5. Off next week

F$&@ yeah. Go Blue!
