05/23/2018 - 4:18pm MSU didn't Kick

him off the team

 

They expelled him and banned him from campus after he used up his eligibility.

04/27/2018 - 7:11pm He got 2 downvotes

because his username is Trump Train

 

I guess they don't like his politics.

04/27/2018 - 6:11pm Awesome news!

Go blue!

04/27/2018 - 6:08pm Yeah, a lot of

people have been predicting this for a while now. We just didn't want to be too optimistic about it

MK just waited until a week ago and "predicted" the same thing others have been predicting all along AND claimed to have inside knowledge of the situation...

04/25/2018 - 4:06pm Just clicked to see

which OSU you were talking about

 

thanks

04/19/2018 - 7:45pm Sparties are quick

to point out that Michigan offered this guy.

 

I always counter that he did not commit. Maybe it was something he saw in E Lansing that aligned with his character or maybe he wasn't allowed to commit, as Michigan puts out 300+ offers a year sometimes. Some of them can't commit, obviously.

 

These things don't quiet the Sparties, though, of course.

04/14/2018 - 4:21pm They've held it

in worse weather. A few years back, it was 35 with 50 mph winds and sideways freezing rain

 

but it's OK. They were just going to practice anyway. They don't make the necessary plans to make the event what it could be.

04/07/2018 - 4:16pm Strange

how he is allowed to dress the entire season, is under investigation the entire season, then coincidentally the friday after the NCAA final, he pleads down to misdemeanor assault...

04/01/2018 - 6:51pm Great Video

If your boy is taking requests, How about an entire video of Jordan Poole highlights?

03/29/2018 - 4:30pm WHy

use this pic of a guy with his face in his junk?

 

and is he a Spartan DAWG for life?

 

burning questions...

03/26/2018 - 10:26am You're not alone

I lived near Lansing most of my life and graduated from MSU and have been a Michigan fan since I was a child. Back in the early 90's, it wasn't uncommon to see people in Michigan gear as I walked to class across the MSU campus. We'd probably get assaulted these days.

03/20/2018 - 1:24pm Spring game was april 1st

a few years ago, but maybe you're right, I can't recall when spring commencement was that year...

 

btw, weather was horrible that day. Sideways freezing rain, cloudy, 50 mph winds...It was awesome!

03/07/2018 - 6:37pm Good article

 just don't read the comments...

03/05/2018 - 10:39am Yes. Michigan's rival,

Yes. Michigan's rival, Rutgers, did well

03/03/2018 - 5:18pm Agree with everything you

Agree with everything you said

 

Except they aren't little brother

 

No relation!

02/27/2018 - 11:02am Before Izzo landed the 2016

Before Izzo landed the 2016 class, he made a speech about changing the ways he's been doing things

 

SInce then, he has landed 3 5*'s and 3 4*'s

 

The 2016 class is 3rd with 2 5* and 2 4*

that 2017 class ranking is 49th, because MSU only signed 2 recruits, a 5* and a 4*. Don't act like that is a bad recruiting class with Jackson and Tillman.

02/25/2018 - 5:57pm yeah, I'm sure Brian Bowen is

yeah, I'm sure Brian Bowen is to be trusted to his word

02/25/2018 - 5:50pm Even If there was anything to

Even If there was anything to the GIbbons and Lewan thing, RichRod and Hoke have been fired.

 

 

02/25/2018 - 5:46pm Yep. Can we make them not

Yep. Can we make them not Michigan's rivals? Can we make them change their school name so there is never a confusion between Michigan and Michigan State. I just do not want Michigan to have any association whatsoever to Michigan State anymore.

 

Ohio State is Michigan's one and only rival

 

oh and Illinois....and Rutgers...

02/25/2018 - 5:40pm Still waiting for this
 
It's

Still waiting for this

 

It's been over an hour for something that sounded like you had right at your disposal. I'm betting poor ol' Tom hasn't mentioned this at all this season

 

He's been talking about other things...or not talking about them

02/25/2018 - 5:35pm Plus, so many of their games

Plus, so many of their games were within 6 points, no matter who they played...OT with Rutgers at home? Today barely beating UW, and so on.

 

Those games are against bad teams. Yes, they beat Purdue at home by 3 on a 3 by Bridges...

 

I just wonder what is going to happen when they go up against actual good teams in the tournament

 

But then again, they have Mr March!!! /s

02/25/2018 - 2:30pm In the post game press conference

we get to hear them talk about basketball

 

:)

02/25/2018 - 2:27pm Yep!
 
so sick of having to

Yep!

 

so sick of having to be reminded of that 3 or 4 times every single game

 

Yeah, we know!!

02/25/2018 - 1:19pm That would be awesome and

That would be awesome and just

02/25/2018 - 1:17pm You forgot that Michigan won

You forgot that Michigan won at Maryland by 24...

02/25/2018 - 12:37pm He isn't. Right now, he's

He isn't. Right now, he's using the "it didn't happen" defense. Once it is proven to have happened, he'll use the "I didn't know" defense.

02/25/2018 - 12:31pm and Gibbons and Grant Perry

and Gibbons and Grant Perry

I usually use firefox

 

I'll try to look at it with chrome

12/05/2017 - 8:05pm ads in the way

are a little irritating

 

but thanks

 

is there a way to get rid of them, so I can read the descriptions of the recruits?

07/04/2017 - 3:34pm And win a b1G championship

And win a b1G championship

06/21/2017 - 10:01pm It's simple

he thought this was all going to go away and thought he better keep working

 

probably shocked that something actually came to a head and got him "terminated" and the players kicked off the team

 

after all, he had made sure they disposed of the evidence...

06/06/2017 - 11:09am Everyone keeps saying Dontoni handled it well

then why did they wait until after NSD to suspend Blackwell? They waited until Feb 9th, as I recall.

02/21/2017 - 11:04am it's the same old story

Lower bowl is always sold out, so you're going to only get tickets to the nosebleeds. Half of the people with tickets in the lower bowl don't bother to show up to most games. Parking is horrible. You have to pay $10 or more to park over a mile away and then walk 20-30 minutes to Crisler, sometimes in horrible weather. Then after the game, you'll have to walk back. The entire trip is probably going to cost you at least $100 in gas, driving, parking, and food and that is just for 2 people. Game-times are horrible. Take the MSU game for instance; 9pm tip, drive an hour, get there 40 minutes early so you can walk and get to your seat on time, sit through 2 hr and 15 minute game, it's 11:15 pm now on a tuesday night. Get back to your car around midnight, 1 hr drive home...getting home at 1am on a night where most people have to get up to work. This is why you see so many old people at the games.

The ushers won't let you move down the entire game, even though those lower bowl people never show up.

 

It's just not realistic. You get a much better view of the game on your couch than paying all that money to sit in nosebleeds and taking all that time and effort to get to the arena just to be a "good fan."

 

Not really sure what the answers would be to improve the experience. Maybe put in a parking garage where the parking lot is next to Crisler. Lower the prices (not going to happen.)

12/06/2014 - 7:31pm Well, the original post says

Well, the original post says "principal," so go be that guy to the OP

12/06/2014 - 6:53pm This doesn't pass the smell test

I don't post much, but I'm reading these comments and I really want them to be true, but they just seem "off"

 

There is the claim that this has been an agreement in principal for nearly a month. A month ago, Michigan had just beaten IU, had 3 games left, and a potential bowl game. Do we really believe that the decision to fire Brady Hoke was done before the Northwestern football game? How does that even line up with when Brandon was "resigned" and Hackett took over?

 

If this were true, that the agreement was done in principal for nearly a month and that a week ago, it was a done deal, then the entire speech by Hackett about swim lanes and doing due diligence and all that was all just a bunch of bunk, because a deal was already done according to this.

 

10/02/2014 - 11:16am Why not

put a different QB in the game?

 

I'm thinking what Hoke is meaning to say is that the ref told him that even if he did call a time-out, then DG would still have to sit a play...which is completely wrong, but there you go.

 

Thing is, there are about 5 QB's on the roster. Any one of them could've run out there and did a hand-off or you could run a direct snap to the RB. I mean, if you're just wasting a play, then go ahead and waste it. 

Then once he found out that he could call a time-out, but Morris was already out there, then...call a time-out. There's some more dumn logic right there, "Well, the ref finally told me i could call a timeout and get DG back in the game, but I looked out there and saw Morris ready to go and said, screw it." Is that what an intelligent football coach sounds like these days?

04/09/2014 - 5:24pm Right! There was a rumor

that he had died and then he came back.

 

Makes you wonder...

04/07/2014 - 11:02am saw Ben Bredeson at the spring practice

no way he is 6' 5" 275. I'm 6 4 and he was shorter than me. Nice to see the staff at WWE is in charge of these heights and weights

 

Still, he did get an offer, so there must be something there.

04/06/2014 - 4:37pm ran it before, but skipped it this year

We always go down and tailgate for the spring game. We get up early in the morning and it's a full day of drinking. Drink and tailgate before the practice, then head to AA and hit the breweries. Makes it kind of tough to get up the next morning and run 5k.

Were there bands and stuff playing along the side of the course? In years past, there were several performances being done as you ran along. Thought that was kind of nice before.

I have noticed that the bottleneck is always there with this race and it was hilly in the past. Did they run the same course as before? Most 5ks get sorted out by the first quarter mile. In the past, they even had signage out to try to seperate the faster and slower walkers/runners, but most ignore them. When I did run it, it took about the entire first mile to get sorted out. That's rough. I usually just treat this as a fun run and don't worry about my time. You can wait however long you want to start, though, as your time doesn't start until your feet cross the starting line. Considered waiting in the past, but haven't actually done it. I like a nice, flat course to try for PR's and such

I ask, because a couple of us are considering running this in the future, but we'd really have to tone down our spring practice day festivities. DId they use the actual banner this year or was it a mock banner? In the past, they used a mock banner, because they wanted to reserve the actual banner for gamedays and such. 

I really wish they had this race another weekend. We have an hour drive and that makes it kind of rough to drive down and back for the spring practice and then come back to AA the next day. I don't want to get a hotel room just to run this race.

04/02/2014 - 3:53pm People would really pay money for a

football signed by Hoke? What? is he a legend or something?

 

Don't get me wrong. I like Hoke and all, but I'm not dying to get a football signed by him. Is anyone else?

03/24/2014 - 4:51pm 2pm time stinks
 
liked the

2pm time stinks

01/18/2014 - 8:45pm Hi everyone

Go Blue!!

01/05/2014 - 4:17pm nevermind

now, it's magically working. Odd

01/05/2014 - 4:16pm I click the green arrow

but nothing happens.

01/05/2014 - 10:06am so i tried to posbang

and I can't

 

I tried reading FAQ and emailing twice, no response...

 

is there some secret to this? 

 

Thought I'd save this question for a thread like this.

01/04/2014 - 9:24am thanks for posting early,

I wouldn't have checked later and it would have been too late.

 

I forgot to watch the bball game thursday, because no helpful posters posted early game threads...

11/20/2013 - 8:07pm If he wants to look tough,

he can wear one of those M logo Carhartts

11/16/2013 - 11:39am Are they going to have the 6 year old

as a guest to breakdown the Michigan O?

 

Then Brady can come on and say "They're wrong!!"

06/25/2013 - 3:17pm so what is his fake 40?

They might run a fake field goal
