Makes no sense. The guy is old and his career is over. What about the freshmen who can learn a new philosophy. So we just keep people around but screw up the freshmen who can learn from someone else. Whatever Beilein is teaching is not working. Look at Simpson.

That's quite the hypothetical to be concerned about.

Yep. Not to freak people out, but he's never called his own plays.

Well think of it as hiring the PSU coach via Alabama.

01/10/2019 - 3:42pm It's reasonable to assume…

It's reasonable to assume that Gattis wouldn't leave Bama and wouldn't spurn his friend at Maryland to not call plays or run the offense at Michigan.

It's also reasonable to assume that if Harbaugh wanted to keep things the same as last year, he wouldn't bother hiring an OC.

01/09/2019 - 1:54pm The game plans for the last…

The game plans for the last 2 games were poor, and designed for a defense that was expected to carry the load.

They definitely need more downfield passing, but Shea and the o-line kind of struggled with that too.

The o-line should get better with experience/coaching, they'll hopefully have 3 healthy downfield threats, explosiveness from the RB position (Turner and Charbonnet), and (cross your fingers) a slot demon in Giles Jackson or George Johnson III or maybe even Evans.

All those things will help allow the play-calling to be more open and aggressive.

Why does anybody not cheer for the Red Sox, Patriots, Warriors, Penguins, etc.?

12/20/2018 - 1:12pm I'm sure about all players…

I'm sure about all players care about getting to the playoff and rivalry games like MSU and OSU (for Michigan).

I think Peach Bowl/Florida is a few tiers below that.

Rashan Gary was worth millions before he set foot on campus.

The joke is he had to go to irrelevant classes for 2+ years before he could cash in.

The problem is that if they lose, most people won't be saying 'meh, big deal,' they'll be going bonkers again.

1. Be positive!

2. Don't be negative! Unless it's also funny and they deserve it.

I dunno, fans that think they deserve an apology come off as entitled to me.

11/05/2018 - 3:33pm I'm not sure college…

I'm not sure college football has a basic spot rule that you refer to. The NFL does, in which case offsetting penalties means Penn St. would get the ball at the spot of their post possession penalty (PSU35), and then I think 15 for the dead-ball sideline infraction (midfield).

Here, I think if both teams accepted the post possession penalties, it would be a replay of the down. So Penn State declined the Nordin block so the down couldn't be replayed. Michigan accepts the PSU penalty (at the 35), and the sideline infraction gives them the yardage back post down.

I think the rule is just messed up.

10/30/2018 - 6:42pm They got good value with…

They got good value with both trades. A 5th for a guy with 2.5 years left, and they got a 3rd for a guy with half a season left.

A 3rd round pick is quite a bit better than a 5th. You probably couldn't trade four 5th rounders for a 3rd. I guess maybe you could, I dunno.

Note too that Harrison is younger than Tate.

10/30/2018 - 6:33pm I think it's very steady,…

I think it's very steady, they're looking towards the next several years.

Harrison will likely be around another year or two, and as you said he fills a position of need.

Tate was 1 of 3 WRs, so that's not where the money needed to be committed.

So they filled a need with a good player, traded a good player at a position with less of a need, saved some cap space (Tate will probably get more than Harrison will the next 1 or 2 seasons), and in the mean time picked up a 3rd and gave away a 5th.

09/19/2018 - 6:53pm here, let me copy paste for…

here, let me copy paste for you:

Rumler will start as a sophomore, Trente Jones probably won't redshirt.

Right now we have 3 slot receivers but no wide outs, and Giles Jackson is not a project he's a projectile weapon.

Woods is now a DT. Hinton my end up there too.

A top 500 recruit out of Georgia/ Florida is not "middling". Ojabo will probably be a rush LB.

06/25/2018 - 7:01pm It's damn near impossible to…

It's damn near impossible to eliminate a team from this game, and it's not going to happen in 9 turns, even if all of the M users focused on OSU.

06/15/2018 - 4:41pm He's notable not because of…

He's notable not because of the media, but because of the fans. There's a lot of people like me that watch the following golf every year:

1. All rounds of Masters

2. Final round of majors

3. Any round Tiger is playing.

06/14/2018 - 6:09pm I'm just happy they have…

I'm just happy they have enough soccer players that didn't get caught doping to field a team.

06/02/2018 - 4:01pm Yeah.....

At this point everyone is basically biding their time stalemated until the game is changed in some manner.

05/31/2018 - 12:17pm Wenger?!!!

Arsenal is my #1 and Real my #2, if Wenger goes there that would be insane!

05/23/2018 - 2:14pm He's very analytical

From what I read he'd be a solid hire.

05/22/2018 - 3:15pm Was wondering about that...

Unfortunately that means I need to rack up >400 karma to get muh 3 stars. Shitposting, here I come!

05/21/2018 - 3:35pm Degrees of freedom are important too tho....

If I'm trying to survive I'd rather have like 20 different terriorities to pick from than be trapped totally in Maine, for example. I think ideally we'd like OSU to focus on Maine while they get picked off in the Midwest, assuming the alliance works. Then we can concentrate our forces on their handful of remaining connected territories in the NE.

05/17/2018 - 4:44pm I wonder if they didn't want it

They'd be following a legend, inheriting a team not full of young talent, and they'd be outspent by MU, MC, Liv, and Chelsea. Plus who knows how much control they'd have in signings.

It seems like it's set up as a failure for a manager that'd be expected to win now and he'd be gone in 2 seasons tops.

05/17/2018 - 4:39pm I like Arteta

I was sad when he left for Man City but working under Pep was obviously a great thing for him, better than working under Wenger for those 2 years.

I viewed him as a future Arsenal manager. Ideally, you'd like him to get a season or two running a lesser club. But I said the same thing about Harbaugh back in 2007(?).

05/17/2018 - 4:37pm 3-4 years is a bit much

in soccer. I think they're going to solidify the backline and maybe pick up a solid midfielder and hope that, along with Auba and Laz, gets them close to the top 4. It might, but probably not.

I do hope they spend on some young talent with an eye on getting back to the top 4 for 2019-2020. Depending on who they sell, they should have enough money to spend on that.

05/17/2018 - 4:31pm Kroenke

I think this potential Arsenal hire fits the philosophy of the owner, in that he doesn't want to pump hundreds of millions of dollars into the team to sign the players a good manager knows he would need to compete in the EPL for that 2-3 year window that is the lifespan for most managers nowadays.

Kroenke wants a guy where Arsenal is the destination job, and where he's willing to take in some less costly players and develop that into a suitable squad, even if it means being paitent for several years. Similar to what Liverpool and Tottenham have done recently, although with differing budgets.

04/20/2018 - 12:27pm oh man, this is huge

I always thought there was a loose comparison between mid to late stage Wenger and Beilein. Both ran offenses that were incredibly easy on the eyes, both seemed to have defensive issues, and both competed without "money." By money I mean neither had bagmen or oil barons to help them get the elite players.


Beilein of course figured the defensive issues out and that's why while it's time for Arsene to do something else, John can stay as long as he wants.

02/20/2018 - 2:57pm So?


02/15/2018 - 12:26pm Fuck...

I hadn't seen the picture until just now and always thought it was McElwain in it. Like I was picturing him in swim trunks hugging it or something.

I guess now I don't get why it's always brought up now if it wasn't him. I mean I guess I get it. It's not making me laugh, but I get it.

01/21/2018 - 6:28pm Was looking for this....

They want someone to play safety that can man up on the slot in 3+ wr sets and not give up long bombs. That happened way too often late in the season.

09/10/2017 - 1:42pm hilarious

i should silently let people act like assholes. if not i'm a snowflake.

lpt: don't be stupid, don't be an asshole. definitely don't be both.

09/10/2017 - 11:11am amen....

when i go to a restaurant, i pay for the right to be rude the staff. if they can't handle it they should find another job.

09/10/2017 - 12:15am in this scenario.....

you're the dumbass for paying $100.

if you don't like it, stop paying.

you're fucking boo ain't gonna do shit.

09/10/2017 - 12:14am no, the problem is

most people think their opinions are worth more than the piece of toilet paper they're written on.

09/09/2017 - 11:59pm so stay fucking home next time....

you should realize this can happen. every team has at least one game like this every season. if you don't like that, don't buy the product.

don't boo, or don't come back. you'll only get pissed off again.

09/09/2017 - 11:53pm if you think shelling out $$$

entitles you to anything from a student-atlhete playing a game, you are wrong.

09/09/2017 - 11:48pm fans are shit

so everything is k.


09/09/2017 - 11:47pm i can tell fans

to not act like assholes.

08/29/2017 - 12:42am i few like very few people in

i few like very few people in this thread watched a lions game last year. 4-12 at best with a mediocre qb.

08/24/2017 - 2:00pm flash sales....

looks like the last one was during the eclipse. not sure if it was 30% or 50%.

just got to search twitter for it now and then.

08/24/2017 - 1:49pm it's not that type....

they're not going to write game recaps, etc. at least they haven't with the tigers so far. it's more scouting and analysis and interview/in-depth type stories.

they might get some scoops but they won't hide them behind the paywall.

some of it is kinda mgoblog/fangraphs type, probably not as in-depth with that type analysis but they cover far more--all your teams and all your sports. i wouldn't recommend getting it just for michigan football, but for detroit teams and sports in general it's probably going to be far better than an espn type site. i think that's who they're trying to compete against, and they will provide far better content if the business model holds.

they'll have specials too, especially at the end of articles in new markets. i think i got a year for $20 i think.

08/22/2017 - 12:47pm (No subject)

08/12/2017 - 7:21pm If you can get a hotspot....

Go for the T-Mobile. They have the cheapest plan, don't have overage charges, and there's a ton of video that doesn't count against your data cap (netflix, youtube, etc.).

I think they use ATT towers when they can't use their own, so it might work for you. We don't have wired internet either but we do have an ATT tower next to our house and the T-Mobile works super fast.

07/12/2017 - 1:11pm he is now....

retired due to injury.

05/30/2017 - 11:16pm what's bad about his path?

by all accounts he's been fine since the divorce. i suspect this was an honest mistake rather than anything deeper to read into.

04/09/2017 - 7:42pm WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I wanted Sergio to win one so much. I hated how he was treated at the US Open when the crowd got on him with the waggles, and the dude has said a few harmless things that made him seem petty, but he's been a great guy and golfer overall.

He deserved this so much. It's a good day.

03/08/2017 - 9:06pm Klopp

I've always liked Klopp. Or at least since BVB made that run to the CL final. I also really liked Suarez' game until it became (even more) obvious what kind of person he is.

I'll probably end up rooting for anybody but ManU/ManCity/Chelsea to be honest when Wenger leaves. That basically means Spurs, Liverpool, Gunners and any LC type underdogs.

The downside to Liverpool is Henry owns the Red Sox and I hate the Red Sox!

03/08/2017 - 4:53pm Wenger..

I've been watching for 5 or so years, Wenger was the main reason I became an Arsenal fan. When he packs up I'm not sure if I'll gravitate to another team.

I can't bring myself to root for Cheslki or the ManCity oil, and I enjoy rooting against Mourinho. If the Spuds weren't the Gunners rival I would probably like them. There's not a hugely likeable team for me if Wenger leaves the EPL.
