This was at a luncheon I was at in downtown GR.  He did indeed call them chickens, and seemed confused as to why that illicited so much laughter.

He also said, "I don't know why they won't play us . . . well actually I do."

My cool story bro is that as he left the podium, I snuck out of the room and grabbed him in a back hallway and he kindly paused for a picture even though he was running late to a coaches clinic.  I don't know how to post a pitcture or I would do it.

03/03/2012 - 4:21pm This is a no brainer.  When I

This is a no brainer.  When I was in law school at ND, the women's team was very strong.  They went to the final four a bunch of times and I think even played in the championship game one year I was there, if I'm not mistaken.  Needless to say, they were a top 5 program all 3 years I was there.

The girls team would come to the gym and play pick up with the boys.  They had so many advantages.  1) they were all in shape, we were not. 2) they were a team, we were a random collection of 5 guys.  3) they made us play with a girls ball.  Nonetheless, I don't think I ever participated in or saw a girls victory.  Just a random collection of guys playing with a girls ball beat them every single time.  They were not blow outs, but they were always wins.

An elite group of 9th graders who are in shape and actually know how to play together would destroy the girls, no doubt. 

01/21/2012 - 8:58pm People close to him said he

People close to him said he was afraid of quitting because he thought if he didn't have coaching to live for he might die.  Sad to see that seems possibly true. 

01/21/2012 - 4:36pm Its funny to read through the

Its funny to read through the posts.  A lot of people disagree, and that is fine, but probably 70% of the people who disagree don't add a single substantive thing to the discussion. 

So because you disagree with me, I know nothing about the opponent, basketball, or the coach?  You do not know me, know nothing about how much basketball I have played, coached, or watched.  Apparently Beilein and I have starkly different philosophy's about T.O.'s and stemming a run.  But your ad hominem attack when you know nothing about me is ridiculous.

01/21/2012 - 4:29pm You could stop reading, stop

You could stop reading, stop posting, stop doing a lot of things.  The CRAZY thing about a message board is sometimes people post things.  I know, I know, weird.  If you don't like what I posted, then don't read it.  Or, actually have something to contribute other than just pretending to be smarter than everyone by only ever criticizing other posts all the time.  I'd love to hear you actually say something substantive instead of some smart ass snarky remark like always.

01/21/2012 - 4:19pm I am absolutely proud of how

I am absolutely proud of how the team fought back, there is no doubt about it.  And like I said, I like Beilein and he is a good coach.  But not calling a single timeout is nonsensical.

01/21/2012 - 4:15pm Look, people can get mad, and

Look, people can get mad, and that's fine.  I'm not saying he is a bad coach or that I want him gone or anything crazy like that, but he cost us this game.  It happens, players have bad games, so do coaches.  This was a bad game for Beilein.  I would love to hear one person put forth a valid reason to not call one timeout when the other team goes up 20 in 10 minutes, which is an absurd feat by the way.

10/15/2011 - 4:10pm Borges is a good coach, but

Borges is a good coach, but he had a bad game.  You don't call one screen, one draw, one trap?  I mean, they blitzed almost every single play in the 2nd half, and you call an empty set with no backs to protect?  And don't even get me started on the 4th down call, I almost threw up.

10/15/2011 - 3:38pm They don't care at all.  Not

They don't care at all.  Not one of them is embarrased of ashamed.  All that matters is the W.  I have no doubt that Dantonio won't even consider punishing Gholston.  It may come down from the league, but not Thugtonio.

It says coming soon for me, anyone else?

I can't get the videos to work, anyone else have that problem?

09/02/2011 - 10:19am Maybe I have you confused

Maybe I have you confused with someone else.  There was a HS coach who got on here and broke down stuff about defense and offense all the time.  I thought his tag was coach something, and I thought it was you.  Perhaps not.

09/02/2011 - 9:42am Much appreciated.  And duh on

Much appreciated.  And duh on Meijer, brain fart I guess.

09/02/2011 - 9:20am Dude, Coach, can I ask what

Dude, Coach, can I ask what happened to you?  You used to post some of the best stuff on this site.  I learned a ton about the X's and O's of football from you and then you seemed to just stop. 

08/29/2011 - 10:18pm I am so confused what this

I am so confused what this post is about.  Is it about COD or Arenas?  And what happened on twitter?  And who is your dude?  And why do we care about any of this?  And how many sentences can I start with "and"?

08/27/2011 - 12:25pm Take it easy on Lee guys. 

Take it easy on Lee guys.  Not everyone is going to pick Michigan as well as we are, we are fans and biased.  I find him entertaining.  He may not be the most accurate game picker out there, but he isn't annoying.

08/26/2011 - 10:50am Personally, I'd rather sit in

Personally, I'd rather sit in row 90 than row 6.  I've had seats in row 2 and row 9 and both times I felt like it was hard to see even though I was around the 40 yard line.

I just moved to Rockford a few months ago and have a 4 month old son.  I am looking forward to becoming an arrogrant prick in a few years, thanks guys.  Maybe I'll start now.

I resent the idea that there is anything wrong with wanting a good old fashion, regular cheesburger, of which Five Guys is probably the best around.

There is just a little bit of Tyson in his voice.  When he says "infectious" it really sounded like Iron Mike.

hmmmmm, that would seem to be bad news about Big Will and Black

08/18/2011 - 10:10pm Let's not ignore the fact

Let's not ignore the fact that the stories were corraborated by 8 former players and even a few former coaches.  That's not random receipts and pictures.

Also, the guy further proves he doesn't know what he is talking about by saying Miami isn't a repeat violator.  He says that the last football violations are too far away, which is true (I think).  However, the rule does not require the repeat violation to be in the same sport.  Miama was recently sanctioned in baseball.  We all remember that danger of repeat violation status for stretch gate over the Ed Martin stuff, obviously different sports.

08/15/2011 - 6:04pm Depends on the pics.  Is it

Depends on the pics.  Is it just of players getting tattoo's?  No big deal, that proves nothing.

08/15/2011 - 10:42am Wait did I miss something? 

Wait did I miss something?  Why is tom behind a paywall?

08/12/2011 - 12:08pm My dad was on a work trip in

My dad was on a work trip in Arizona and was playing golf with one of his employees that came with him, and they caught up to a twosome of Jeff Jones and Verlander.  They joined them and played together.  My dad said Verlander hits a golf ball as far as anyone he has ever seen.

08/11/2011 - 9:48am I have to agree with above

I have to agree with above poster.  I will never understand why fans spend so much time on another teams board.  No offense Irish, but I just don't get it.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, I'll believe the NCAA will hammer them when it happens and not before

When were you in HS in West Laffayette?  I graduated in '04.

08/05/2011 - 8:14am Blue and South Bend and I

Blue and South Bend and I have to go to a buddy's wedding on opening weekend.  Not only am I pissed to not get to see Michigan's new look, but I just like seeing games all day in general the first weekend.

07/25/2011 - 12:32pm I'm taking it, but you

I'm taking it, but you already knew that Blue, since we will be spooning in the hotel tonight

07/20/2011 - 7:21pm How reputable is the cite

How reputable is the cite that was linked too?  Is there a chance this is crap?

07/20/2011 - 7:45am Have you ever played rail

Have you ever played rail baron?  Much better, but kind of a rare game.  I have trouble finding people who've played it.

07/13/2011 - 9:29pm This game is really good I

This game is really good I think.  My main complaint is it seems too easy to throw the ball deep.  Even on Heisman, if you just call four verticals everytime there is almost always someone open.  The safeties don't turn and run when someone is going deep nearly fast enough.

07/09/2011 - 9:31am I thought Banner and Garnett

I thought Banner and Garnett looked bad.  Both looked tall and stood up really quickly.  I didn't think Shittu looks very good either.  But then again, I may not know what I am looking at as much as some others.

07/09/2011 - 9:02am I say coupling this with our

I say coupling this with our dominance of MI and the affect that has on MSU and I'd say things are looking up.

07/08/2011 - 2:42pm His dogs are two of the most

His dogs are two of the most destructive forces on the planet I have ever seen.  If we could figure out how to make them student athletes, they would wreak havoc for Michigan's defense.  ESPECIALLY if the opposing team was made up of text books.

07/07/2011 - 8:03am The only reason I watched

The only reason I watched this is because I thought it would include highlight videos and at least get me pumped for the season.  I didn't know it was just going to be that guy sitting in his mom's basement talking to himself.

07/04/2011 - 11:47am Once on the main page of

Once on the main page of teambuilder click create a school.  It will ask you to log in.  If you have played an EA sports game online in the last 5 years your login will be your gamer ID and password most likely.  Otherwise, you will have to create a log in.  Once logged in, on the far right is rosters.  Click rosters and you can browse teams.

07/04/2011 - 11:26am You can modify the rosters

You can modify the rosters and then you have to download them onto your PS3 in the game.

EDIT:  Actually now that I think about it, you can only create teams.  I think you can use Michigan's roster as your base for your "created team" but then you'd have to try to perfectly make Michigan the rest of the way for color's and such and that would be annoying.  Probably better to wait until you get the game.

The link I put up was 2012 rosters.

Also, Hopkins has lower break tackle than Shaw

07/03/2011 - 3:30pm I think you must have

I think you must have intentionally tried to miss the point, that's the only way to explain your comment.  Of course both players are a lot better than the OP and the rest of us, that's a stupid thing to say.  That has nothing to do with whether or not either guy is good enough to play in the bigs. 

Raburn can't hit and he sucks at D.  At least Inge gives some D, whether it's not as good as it once was or not.  No excuse for Raburn, he sucks at all phases, despite being better than me at baseball.

06/30/2011 - 8:18pm 11 is a lot better.  I didn't

11 is a lot better.  I didn't care for the new controls and used the old, but the game is still better.  There are so many more types of hits in this game.  I years past it was either ground ball through the infield or a home run.  A solid liner for a single never happened before, and in this year it does.  The depth of the types of hits in this years game is what makes it better.

06/30/2011 - 2:57pm My biggest complaint is the

My biggest complaint is the coverage of DB's.  Last year they made a huge step forward in making agility and acceleration actually mean something in how guys move on the field.  But in the demo, I've had multiple times where a safety was running deep with one of my WR's and I throw a shorter pass over the middle and the safety completely changes direction without losing any speed at all.  The safety doesn't have to slow down at all, no stutter steps, just full speed starts running downfield when one second ago they were running upfield.  Hopefully this is an easy fix with a patch because this isn't a problem with any other position on the field but DB's change direction without losing any speed right now.

06/16/2011 - 9:51pm I don't know, the article

I don't know, the article says Michigan allows their compliance officers to drive these kind of cars.  I don't know if this is a big deal.

06/16/2011 - 3:39pm Geesh, as the father of a 7

Geesh, as the father of a 7 week old also looking forward to my first fathers day, this is unimaginable to me.  Makes waking up at 3 am to change his diapers seem a lot better.
