Rudock was pretty banged up going into the game.

I am just wondering how the Neanderthals at RCMB are going to start victim shaming on this one...

 

09/10/2018 - 1:45pm I am still not as positive…

I am still not as positive as you are about our schedule. I don't care how bad MSU looks right now, by the time we play them, they will play like a world beater. And our schedule is tough because of so many road games with tough opponents. Even if they are not quite as good as we expected, the road crowd/refs will not be kind to us.

I am now sure that our WR/QB are light years better than where we were last year. I am still very sure that our OL is no better than last year. Defense is probably about equal or slightly better (not significantly better like we were expecting) than last year. That tells me we are still looking at 9-3 by the end of the season.

09/10/2018 - 11:54am Not sure how that is obvious… Not sure how that is obvious. Nothing I see in the video says I should over-rule the official on the field with the best view.
09/04/2018 - 9:30pm That is because they are too…

That is because they are too busy tearing down student athletes and calling for the firings of everyone involved after every loss. If we were all civil, then this place would not be so unbearable after every loss.

09/04/2018 - 2:44pm I wonder what is going to…

I wonder what is going to happen to all the reasonable folks on this site this year. Looks like the loonies are taking over and Brian is to apathetic to care. I keep saying that we can be SIGNIFICANTLY better than last year and still finish with the same record and I don't think people understand that. The offense actually looked better than what I expected as QB and WR look much better than last year. I expect offense to continue to improve and Patterson to replicate what Rudock was able to do. The only question is whether or not the tackles will get better enough for that to matter. This is going to be a long year...

09/02/2018 - 11:36am I have to agree with this…

I have to agree with this. The key play is our AD not acting like a friggin AD and just accommodating ND and Harbaugh for whatever they want. When you have a schedule like we have this year where we play on the road for all of our major rivals, adding yet ANOTHER road rivalry game is just insane. When you add how ND treated us (how they ended the last series, forcing us to start away, and the band location, etc.), put me on the bandwagon for fire Manuel bandwagon.

09/02/2018 - 11:30am Meh, last night didn't…

Meh, last night didn't change much for me. I started a thread earlier this year saying that even if the offense is SIGNIFICANTLY better this year, we will probably still end up with a similar record as last year due to the tougher schedule. It is pretty much what I expected, no change for me (and offense does look a lot better).

08/31/2018 - 11:01pm I still remember this play…

I still remember this play like it was yesterday. I had my seat looking straight down the end zone line and I remember how poerfectly horizontal Desmond was when he made that catch. It was like time slow down so that I can soak up all the amazingness. What a play.

08/30/2018 - 11:30am I am not sure what you mean…

I am not sure what you mean by "if computers decided these games". All the numbers are just percentages. Computer isn't "deciding" who is going to win, it is just telling you how likely it is. Even with the percentage above, it means Michigan should win 1 out of 3 games. That is a pretty significant chance of winning.

I am not sure how accurate the ESPN's model is, but if you polled all college football "experts" and averaged them, it will be pretty similar to the numbers above. We just think these numbers are too low because we are bunch of homers.

08/28/2018 - 4:17pm The computer models are…

The computer models are predicting 9 wins. Going 8-5 is a DISTINCT possibility, no matter what unforeseen circumstances are involved. You are basically arguing that ESPN is correct.

I also firmly believe that if the team goes 8-5, hell, even if we go 9-4, there will be a LOUD crowd on this board calling for Harbaugh's head. I would say ESPN is pretty accurate.

It just means we have a very large alumni base who like to gamble...

08/08/2018 - 3:16pm Our offense was one of the…

Our offense was one of the WORST in the country last year. Even if we are significantly better, you can end up average or little worse than average. That probably will not be good enough to win B1G in a tough division.

08/07/2018 - 4:32pm Let's go one by one:

1…

Let's go one by one:

1. Does not matter, under Title IX, all university employees MUST report any violation of this nature related to university. Courtney Smith is not an employee, she has no responsibility to report, but Shelley Meyer does.

2. Not sure what you are getting at, even if she showed the divorce file, it is up to her since it has not been published by McMurphy.

3. Again, does not matter, even if the victim wants to keep it private, the employee of the university has the obligation to report

4. Why should McMurphy vouch whether or not Courtney has been paid by somebody else? Only ting McMurphy should care is whether or not Courtney is being truthful.

5. Again, her income has nothing to do with this.

6. If you follow the pattern, it is pretty obvious that McMurphy has pretty solid set of corroborating evidences (because he is actually a reporter)

7. I am sure their kid saw all of it...

8. You mean apart from Zach's confessions on the text and actual photos? Are you going to keep moving goal posts if they find more?

9. I am sure she would be more than happy to do so under oath.

STOP BLAMING THE VICTIM YOU ASSHOLE. This world is a worse place because of low-life like you.

08/07/2018 - 4:22pm Following the same logic,…

Following the same logic, why should Joe Paterno be fired and demonized? Because his assistant coach was accused of molesting boys?

I am sure you guys were singing a different tune when it was PSU...

08/07/2018 - 1:27pm Go back and read my posts…

Go back and read my posts over the years. I have been very consistent about how winning is not everything and that morals matter (including Gibbons incident and Taylor Lewan).

There is no doubt anymore that your fanbase is no better than PSU or MSU. Sports is just a game, a hobby, entertainment at the end of the day. The behavior on 11warrirors right now is EXACTLY why victims of domestic violence do not step forward.

08/07/2018 - 1:21pm WTF are you talking about?…

WTF are you talking about? What do you think "misspoke" means? Do you have ears? Did you not hear what he said during the press conference? How do you even conclude that it was not a lie? Dude, you need to see how ridiculous you sound right now.

08/07/2018 - 12:30pm It is clear from her…

It is clear from her statement that no one in OSU AD contacted title IX department. The basically buried the domestic abuse within the athletic department, hoping that no one else would notice.

Seems like all the pieces are in place for Gene Smith to take the fall. I am guessing Urban will get away with a slap on the wrist.

08/07/2018 - 12:25pm If you don't want to be …

If you don't want to be "stereotyped" then go back to 11warriors and get people to stop victim shaming. It is full on blame the victim mode over there now and it is disgusting.

I couldn't care less about our record. Urban is sleazy liar and everyone now knows it. It is fine if you guys are okay with having someone like that as your head coach, sine we never expected better from OSU fans anyway.

08/07/2018 - 12:22pm Even Meyer admitted he lied…

Even Meyer admitted he lied. Did you even watch the video? He clearly lied, nobody mentioned anything about the arrest. This is just sad.

08/03/2018 - 4:39pm So, he is going for the Joe…

So, he is going for the Joe Paterno defense (I reported to management, my involvement ends there). Interesting...

08/01/2018 - 11:58am I will say 11warriors…

I will say 11warriors comments have been light years ahead of what I saw from MSU & PSU. They are actively talking about firing Meyer, which I did not expect.

07/29/2018 - 2:01pm I fail to understand why a…

I fail to understand why a gesture that is considered by almost every culture as a sign of respect and surrender is so bothersome to some people.

07/25/2018 - 11:49am I must say most of the…

I must say most of the comments on 11 Warriors have been quite civil and reasonable compared to what we've seen on PSU and MSU sites.

07/25/2018 - 11:43am I work in tech and I stay…

I work in tech and I stay far, far away from smart home devices like Echo and switches. Security on these things are laughable and expose your most private information to public. It will be a long long time before I jump in.

06/18/2018 - 10:17am We should be fretting about…

We should be fretting about the dumbfuck who created this schedule. I still have no idea why they replaced Arkansas with ND, at ND no less. It doesn't do anything to have the toughest schedule in the country. Only thing it does is to make it harder to get to the playoffs. We have bunch of idiots running AD.

06/06/2018 - 11:47am I just upgraded my entire AV…

I just upgraded my entire AV system (TV/AVR/HTPC). I have the journey documented here: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/26-home-theater-computers/2973110-time-upgrade-4k-hdr.html

For me, the important upgrade is HDR more than 4K. The increase in contrast and color is really eye popping.

I did a ton of research and ended with a choice between 75" Sony XBR900E (Rting and AVS top buy) and 65" LG OLED (the best possible picture). It was really an agonizing call, but I ended up with the Sony and I am really happy with it. The brightness and contrast is really great and some of the demo video are simply breathtaking.

05/25/2018 - 12:24pm This is silly, nobody is

This is silly, nobody is saying the it is impossible to become rich if you were born poor or vice versa. But the odds of that happening is pretty low. Most people end up in the same class, income wise, as their parents. Why is that so hard to understand?

05/10/2018 - 10:54am Students have enough to worry

Students have enough to worry about. Not sure why anything like this would be necessary.

Coaches on the otherhand...

05/08/2018 - 2:08pm This is the correct answer

This is the correct answer for anyone who grew up in the 80's. Was there any boy's bedroom without a poster of this car?

05/04/2018 - 10:45am Almost every five-stars going

Almost every five-stars going to Kentucky are thinking one-and-done. We done need them, they are practically useless the first year in Beilein's system.

Our four-stars will be outperforming them by the second year, so I don't see why we would even bother going after them unless we know for sure they want to stay more than a year.

05/03/2018 - 3:46pm Every team has their own

Every team has their own doctors who review theses cases and give their opinion. No coach is going to take a guy if your own doctor says he should not play. It does not matter if there is a different opinion, you go with the the recommendations from your own doctors. Obviously, the Oakland doctors agreed with Harvard and UM doctors. Not sure why everyone is getting upset over this...

04/26/2018 - 10:40am When it comes to black people

When it comes to black people using the n-word, i would put it this way. A female player slapping a teammate in the butt after a nice play would be just fine. If a male player slapped a female player in the butt, it would be considered as sexual assault.

04/25/2018 - 11:55am I think Bielein would be

I think Bielein would be quite happy with freshmen ineligibility.

04/07/2018 - 1:33pm You have no clue how WAR is

You have no clue how WAR is calculated...

WAR = (Batting Runs + Base Running Runs +Fielding Runs + Positional Adjustment + League Adjustment +Replacement Runs) / (Runs Per Win)

You can be a player on a team that loses every game and have a positive WAR.

04/07/2018 - 1:18pm Either he is transferring due

Either he is transferring due to bad grades and will have to sit a year, or he will be graduating this year and is grad transferring. It cannot be both. If he is grad transferring, that automatically means there are no problems with his grades.

04/03/2018 - 12:29am It does not matter if he

It does not matter if he reached his collegiate ceiling. If he comes back, that means that he will forego the next year's earnings AND he will be in a worse spot draft wise the next year, costing him even more money and jeopardize his chances at NBA even further.

There were talks about Mo going in the first round last year, and even though he came back and improved his game, now they are saying he would be a mid 2nd round at best. I don't know why anyone would think that coming back for another year would reverse that trend.

The crowd is about 70% Michigan inside the Alamodome.

Here is Matt and a few of us...

I asked if there were any other posters and nobody spoke up. All just browesers...

But everyone I met were great. Matt is a super nice guy and I would get mortgage from him if I lived in A2:)

1103 is actually the Best Western hotel I am staying at. The Growler is across the street behind the t-shirt merchant. Not visible from commerce street.

04/01/2018 - 4:10pm Since I started the original

Since I started the original thread, I better show up for this one. Staying at BW, so this is practically just outside my hotel room.

BTW this place was packed with Michigan fans last night.

There are a lot of Kansas fans here.

My voice is gone. But I had chills when it sounded like the entire stadium was chanting Let's GO BLUE!

03/31/2018 - 12:02pm Being frustrated is fine.

Being frustrated is fine. Calling for a the best basketball coach Michigan has ever had to be fired??? That is justhe irrational and juvenile.

03/31/2018 - 11:55am Anyone who yells "fire

Anyone who yells "fire everybody" whenever a program hits a rough patch is not a true fan and deserves all the shit they get. The same crowd is now itching to burn Harbaugh in effigy if we have another 4 loss season, even though there is a snow ball's chance in hell that we can find someone better.

Most people were right to doubt Beilein? Fuck that and take your bandwagonning self out of here because there is no room for you.

This has gone towards a very weird place...

So, any suggestion on a good meeting place from a local?

03/28/2018 - 10:27pm Just because you were too

Just because you were too dumb to notice how good of a coach Beilein does not mean that others shared your shortcomings. Don't project your stupidity on others.
