Huge fan.  Tiger in contention on Sunday is must watch tv.  That was awesome.  I'm looking forward to the Ryder Cup as that is some of the most competitive, fun to watch sports there is.  So intense.  

09/23/2018 - 3:49pm He was able to rest the…

He was able to rest the whole 2nd half yesterday.  That is plenty until we play Rutger.  Oh my bad...sorry for the Rutger joke.  They are solid program and I am sure darn grateful they are not only in the Big Ten but in our division.  Look forward to a tough, physical game of football when we get the much appreciated opportunity to play them.  Rutger is an ascending program.

That made my head hurt and they teach this now in the 5th grade?  

09/23/2018 - 3:03pm Honest question.  If you…

Honest question.  If you never heard of Martinez or the hype prior to this game, would you have the same opinion?  He was 7-15 for 22 yds and 1 int.  7 rushes -12 yds.  I honestly heard the hype, but saw nothing yesterday.  He was terrible.  His supporting cast isn't great, but I didn't see anything yesterday that would suggest he is going to be really good.  And yes he is with a bad knee.  I just saw nothing from him that would suggest anything positive.  Dylan on the other hand did show some things that lend itself to a bright future.  

09/23/2018 - 2:58pm It looked like his head was…

It looked like his head was up though.  I didn't get the slow-mo replay but I did watch it a few times in normal speed.  Was his head down and did he hit him in the face?  

09/23/2018 - 2:45pm Are you effin kidding me on…

Are you effin kidding me on that targeting call?  I missed the 4th qtr so thanks posting this.  I read thru the Targeting thread and saw the mixed opinions, but never got a chance to see the play.  That looks like a head up facemask hit right to the chest.  I am so fucking sick of the administration of that rule.  I also noted quite a few of our players drilled right in the head yesterday with no call and no buzz down by the booth.  

09/23/2018 - 2:32pm "heat is on the way" - are…

"heat is on the way" - are we recruiting anyone from Florida?  It is hot af down here.  A feel like temp right now of 100.  It's the end of Sept fergodsakes.  

09/23/2018 - 1:56pm Standard and Poor's - duh! 

Standard and Poor's - duh! 

09/23/2018 - 6:11am I'm sure they are a fine…

I'm sure they are a fine institution overall, but they do not belong in the B1G for sports.  They are one of the worst teams in DI football.   If they can't compete in this conference, perhaps they would consider the best interest of the athlete and move to an FCS conference.  Unfortunately, because of the $$$, it likely won't happen. 

They were a 6 1/2 pt dog, at home, to a MAC team and lost by almost 30.  The jokes will never stop with that type of ineptness.

Vegas Insider has Martinez listed as probable and thus the -18 assumes he is playing. 

09/21/2018 - 6:42pm And I think the points…

And I think the points thingy just took a shit as I've been now stuck on 15,695 for quite a few posts now.  Well, some progress was made I suppose.  

09/21/2018 - 6:40pm Good thing I'm not coming up…

Good thing I'm not coming up for this one.  I have a closet full of gear and not one maize anything.  Probably time to get something maize next time I buy something.  

09/21/2018 - 6:34pm He was done.  It just had to…

He was done.  It just had to play out so that he can legally be done for cause.  The whole situation is very unfortunate because of a couple big time dickheaded coaches that went WAY over the line of trying to create tough football players.  I feel so bad for the parents.  As a father of three, I can't even imagine...

 

 

09/21/2018 - 5:10pm Yeah for sure.  If there is…

Yeah for sure.  If there is a lot of cramping tomorrow...holy red flags.  

09/21/2018 - 5:06pm There was a troll hanging…

There was a troll hanging over the last week it appears.  Another tool bag got nuked today as well.  The vibe on the boards has been better this week.  Now with the negs working, the future trolls will be outed quite quickly.  

09/21/2018 - 5:01pm Yay!  Nice to be looking at…

Yay!  Nice to be looking at a different number finally.  

09/21/2018 - 4:29pm I don't dislike him as much…

I don't dislike him as much as I used to.  I think he is a decent dude but just not a strong X and O type coach.  He's more like a CEO type running that large program, which he is doing a good job of.  I didn't think he had it in him, but I can't argue with the recent success they have had. 

Always a big game, but not our rival though.   

09/21/2018 - 4:21pm Nebraska without Martinez is…

Nebraska without Martinez is going to have a really difficult time moving the ball.  They lost to Troy - at home.  I watched it and Troy was the better team.  The Husker D is not very stout.  This will be a tough year for the Huskers as they make the transition to Frost.  I think they will be competing for West division championships though in a couple/few years.

Man are we due and in need for a season like that.  Been far too long.  

09/21/2018 - 4:10pm I got to do the same at Univ…

I got to do the same at Univ of Illinois one summer back in the early 90's when I was there for a seminar.  I thought it was really cool just to be able to stroll in the open gates.  Beautiful campus too by the way, even though it is in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by corn and more corn.   

09/21/2018 - 6:15am Watch football all day…

Watch football all day saturday and you will see 100 similar tackles that go uncalled.  That call was not in the spirit of why the rule was established.  Jay Harbaugh was quite eloquent in how he put it in his presser when asked about it.  It was to protect a defenseless player from a defender that intentionally goes after his head with the crown of his helmet.  A RB with the ball running between the tackles is anything but defenseless.  That call was 100% football and 100% horseshit.  

09/19/2018 - 6:15am don't feed the troll

don't feed the troll

09/19/2018 - 6:10am I concur.  Nebraska will be…

I concur.  Nebraska will be good again, like Iowa type good.  They won't be the dominant program they were way back in the day, but they will be competing for that West title under Frost in a couple years or so.  They also have one of the absolute best fan bases in the country.  They are the nicest fans I have met.  If I had to pick a road game to attend, Neb would be my first choice.

As a little league coach, it seems to start there.  Some parents are just straight up nuts.  

09/18/2018 - 5:53am 209.  Hardly a gashing. …

209.  Hardly a gashing.  Look at Missouri for a gashing - Blough threw for over 570 yds.  

09/17/2018 - 6:07pm Ok my bad.  I misinterpreted…

Ok my bad.  I misinterpreted your intent.  I thought you were giving the fans an "up yours" to the request for cheaper water as there are free water options available.  

09/17/2018 - 5:51pm Parking is not a health…

Parking is not a health concern.  There are a lot of great fans that can only afford to bring their families to a game like SMU.  Tickets, parking, tailgate or food in the stadium is really expensive for a lot of families.  Asking a fair price for a bottle of water on a very hot day is not asking too much.  

09/17/2018 - 5:42pm Really?  What good is a…

Really?  What good is a drinking fountain when you are crammed in your seat, perhaps sitting in one of the lower rows?  The point is, you need to be able to have an affordable option to be able to have a bottle of water (or two) with you while you enjoy the game.  

09/17/2018 - 5:30pm I live in Florida close to…

I live in Florida close to the Pittsburgh Pirates spring training stadium.  We are allowed to bring our own water bottles to their games as well as all of the minor league games in that stadium.  I like that and it creates a positive feeling toward the Pirate's Organization.  

09/17/2018 - 5:23pm I have always been a firm…

I have always been a firm believer that a bottle of water should never cost more than $1, anywhere in our country.  You can buy a case of water in bulk for about $3 at most right?  That's $24 in revenue for a case of water and $21 in profit (I did the math for you buckeye and sparty fans) - you're welcome).  

Gouging the fans everywhere is bullshit in my opinion.  If you want to charge $7 for a beer, so be it.  But to charge $5 for 16oz of water just seems unethical to me.  Maybe if fans could get a $1 bottle of water, they would more likely to buy a $7 beer and a $5 hotdog.

If I had time to insert a gif, it would be that of someone rolling their eyes while giving the ol' yanking motion.

Kansas did lose at home a couple weeks ago to Nicholls, whatever that is.  Nicholls. 

09/17/2018 - 6:14am I found myself enjoying many…

I found myself enjoying many of these teams losing and was rooting for the underdog in all of these games (purdue was a 6 pt dog so I was rooting for them).  I thought, should I be rooting for the B1G?  But I got more enjoyment seeing Maryland get rolled, Nebraska lose at home to Troy, Wisc lose at home to BYU, NW lose to a MAC team.  

Amongst all the carnage, Indiana is quietly 3-0 and handling their business.  They get Sparty at home this week.  Should be interesting.  

09/16/2018 - 10:04am Yes, by the letter of the…

Yes, by the letter of the law it was targeting.  That is the problem I have been bitching about.  The application of the rule needs a major overhaul.  The rule wasn't created for ticky tacky hits like that.  It was put in play to get rid of the hits for guys that were leading with the crowns of their helmets and launching themselves like missiles into a players head, particularly the unprotected WR.

I just heard it on the radio.  He could not sound any more disingenuous. 

09/16/2018 - 6:48am I don't know man.  I watch a…

I don't know man.  I watch a lot of football and there are many games being played in hotter and more humid places than South Bend and Ann Arbor.  Our level of cramping in these first 3 games has been more than any other Michigan team I can ever remember and more than other teams playing in hotter conditions.  That was just a general observation I made yesterday during the game.  

09/16/2018 - 6:30am Both stellar in comparison…

Both stellar in comparison to your posting.  

09/16/2018 - 6:27am Sure it wasn't a cramp?  A…

Sure it wasn't a cramp?  A lot of cramping going on with this team in the ND game and yesterday.  

09/16/2018 - 6:21am I was locked in on watching…

I was locked in on watching 4 games at a time.  At least 3 times, all 4 games were on a commercial break.  That is ridiculous.  

09/16/2018 - 6:18am 2015 MSU was right up there…

2015 MSU was right up there.  It gets overlooked because of the thing that happened at the end.  

And just to beat a dead horse, the targeting rule is trash.  Hudson will miss the 1st half against Nebraska because he made a solid football tackle.  Thank you Matt Millen for saying "I hate the rule".  

09/15/2018 - 11:47am How could anyone possibly…

How could anyone possibly focus on chores when Rutger @ Kansas is on?

Thelma was pretty hot though.

And a very well written post I might add.

That is fantastic!

I've always like SMU's helmets.  So they got that going for them.  

09/13/2018 - 5:57pm Seriously man, I laughed out…

Seriously man, I laughed out loud at this one.  Your creativity of the username and avatar are pretty good.  My first name starts with a C and my last name is probably Rogers, but they call me Rodge for short.  I'm older and thus credible because I was born or graduated in 1970.  See, this is real trolling.  Funny trolling.  The rest of your accounts, not so funny.  

09/13/2018 - 5:28pm "Mike" is Michiganfan,…

"Mike" is Michiganfan, skypanther, seascorpian, smugbastard, jamesjoseph...etc?  If that is true, that is really shitty to many of us that have supported him over the years.  

09/13/2018 - 5:17pm It's stupid shit like shit…

It's stupid shit like shit that is so fucking obvious.  Michiganfan1984, skypanther, this and a few other of his accounts should immediately be nuked.  And every time he comes back, nuked again.  You don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure this out.  Going forward, it is as easy as pairing the stupid-ass comment together with the join date.  And those with the power on this site don't need a reason to delete an account.  If it walks like a duck....fucking nuke it!
