09/19/2014 - 3:27pm weather does look bad

hope uofm gets an early lead and hoke's refusal to wear anything plugged in during the game saves him from being electrocuted

09/12/2014 - 5:01pm i am old and slow

thanks - that actually looks kinda cool

09/06/2014 - 10:53pm Fire them all

start with dave brandon -

then move on to hoke

then fire the guy who plays is in charge of the game day experience in the big house

08/29/2014 - 4:49pm not sure if we will ever find out about Nuss

Our offense will be very QB centered this year

If he uses #98 like a video game player and UofM has a huge year he may well bolt for another job.

Hard to say if his success is b/c of Gardiner or b/c he knew what he was doing.


08/29/2014 - 4:41pm other than saban

literally every other college FB coach has people (lots of them) in their fanbase saying if they don't win soon they should be fired

how do you think SC feels right now about the 'ole ball coach?

08/29/2014 - 4:30pm Is it about passing v running

or simply predictability

'nuss cannot allow the offense to be 1-dimensional and staid

it needs to constantly adjust and reinvent itself - while mainting true to its core plays

not an easy thing to do

08/29/2014 - 4:19pm if the qb shot the ball out of his tush

and the team went undefeated Gorgeous Al would still be here

he was at a time a quality OC - he had a very bad year last year and he was let go

the whole philosophy thing will only be brought up in the context of a loss - and we lost a ton last year - so we brought it up a ton

if we have a solid UofM year (9-3 and up) there won't be as much belly ache about the philosophy of the offense (no matter what we do - lateral farting including)

08/28/2014 - 12:41pm 10/25

i am not sure if you know or not, but there is a football game on October 25th in East Lansing between UofM and MSU

08/26/2014 - 9:16am copeland

fine american composer

fanfare for common man is also very good

08/25/2014 - 11:43am this is Michigan is parody,

but I think you are talking about parity 

08/25/2014 - 11:05am So what are the real assets?
This is were we're at: trying to figure out exactly which things we took for granted for 40 years are real assets and which are replaceable.

I do think the 'manball' thing can work.  I don't think UofM can become a spread program.  I know there are arguments both ways, but I believe the path to success goes through a strong Defense and a competent Offense.

Real Asset - Top 10 D

Replaceable - September / October Heisman Candidates

08/22/2014 - 3:11pm it is a revenue grab


because if they were to add beer it would be b/c they focused entirely on the added revenue beer sales would provide & THEY PAID NO ATTENTION TO THE ADDED COSTS BEER SALES WOULD INCUR

08/22/2014 - 3:09pm Not necessarily

someone who is wasted will not sober up & you never know how alchol will hit you


I am not trying to be a prude - i love to have a good time

but there are so many other places to do it

08/22/2014 - 3:01pm exactly!

part of the tradition of UofM football is passing it down to your kids

I really don't need my kids to see out of control drunks


not trying to be a prude - i love having fun and getting rowdy - but there are so many other places in the world to do this

08/22/2014 - 2:54pm b/c metabolism

after sitting in the sun for 3.5 to 4 hours drunk people tend to either sober up or fall asleep.


Continuing to drink means people stay drunk or get even drunker 

(this is why they cap alcohol sales in major league venues)

People who are really drunk tend to do stupid things


Also - every major sporting event has fights and problems, but they love the $ so they continue to sell

UofM athletics are supposed to be non-profit, let's explore whoring ourselves out in other ways before we open up the floodgates to alcohol fueled mayhem

08/22/2014 - 2:28pm NO!

there is plenty of alcohol in / around the stadium and Ann Arbor

selling it would just be a revenue grab and lead to so many more problems

08/22/2014 - 2:26pm will muschamp satellite?

didn't get that one

08/22/2014 - 11:04am Funk will be back in 2015 if Hoke is

How can Funk be worse than last year?  Honestly it's impossible.

So if Hoke didn't fire him last year, why would you fire him in 2015?

If O-Line is as terrible as last year's tire fire, then Hoke will be gone in 2015.

You can't say that you are all about pounding the football and running downhill and have multiple negative rushing yard games.  

If that is your identity - you have to perform to it.

08/22/2014 - 10:42am unfortunately


08/20/2014 - 1:20pm head fakes on head fakes!

Honestly that leaves me even more confused!

08/20/2014 - 1:07pm sorry double post


08/20/2014 - 1:05pm I had this thought as well

my only worry is that after tearing them down, does Hoke have enough time to build them back up?

Wouldh't this excercise been better suited for the spring game?

08/20/2014 - 1:02pm OL needing multiple fronts

So do you believe the DC was intentionally more aggressive in his playcalling than the OC?

The OL needs work against everything and has yet to master the basic, so the DC pulled a lot out of the bag and the OC kept it vanilla?

Very curious as to what the OL and the offense look like against a real opponent.

08/08/2014 - 3:21pm the jerseys are designed to make PSU dizzy



08/07/2014 - 2:38pm this

so awesome on so many levels

  1. Former OSU Athlete shaming himself and the program
  2. Former OSU athlete writing the 3rd act for his 30 for 30 as a draft bust
  3. The SHIRT, The SHIRT, The SHIRT (use a Bo voice when you say that)
08/07/2014 - 2:35pm Chartered coach

today we call 'em buses

01/24/2014 - 9:35am Nuss may have opened the door

But to beat a dead horse a bit more - 

how well we do in 2014 will go a long way in determining what kind of recruits we will get

01/24/2014 - 9:06am Larry Page

you know the google guy

01/24/2014 - 8:52am Any predictions?


01/08/2014 - 5:48pm scot loeffler

12/20/2013 - 9:27am Il Post - was on the other corner

now biga

but that was one fine Italian place - and classy as well

no way they would have allowed him to cause a scene (he would have gotten a special table in the kitchen)

12/20/2013 - 9:15am Slam Dunk Studs -

Need to go to the O - but those are pretty much limited to like 1 or 2 guys a year.  Everyone else would be better served in college.  Of course there are some people who just aren't 'college guys'

I wonder what the US basketball scene would look like if the NBA "D" league accepted 18 year old kids.  I don't think its a stretch to say some of the one and dones just aren't 'college guys'

No disrespect to people who aren't 'college guys' there are plenty of ways to make a living without a college degree - college is just not for everyone

12/19/2013 - 10:08am 3 Non-Conference Games in 2017?

Cincy and Air Force at home plus the big 10 slate

MSU / Rutgers / Minny / Ohio State

Should be an interesting season but only 6 games

Would have preferred this game during a 5 home game B10 season

12/18/2013 - 3:02pm Thanks

didn't realize that

12/18/2013 - 11:06am students?

I like the idea of night games, but does an awesome night game make the noon start vs. "MAC Regional School A&M State" that more boring?  

I hate seeing huge swaths of the student section empty


Not sure they are related, but that game vs. Akron had horrible visuals to a TV audience

12/13/2013 - 4:04pm NFL's bowl game

huge revenue source for the league

12/13/2013 - 10:07am Maple Leafs

Don't count out the Leaf fans


you may be right about historic michgian stadium attendance, but this game has a wildcard

CANADIANS! (blame canada)

12/11/2013 - 6:19pm i don't remember 1 final

but I remember some of the crazy games I went to in school

12/03/2013 - 2:18pm Jay Riemersma

Jay Riemersma was special and the exception not the rule.  He blocked and caught waggles.  Not even in the same receiving category as Funchess.

Also, Riemersma was next to John Runyan and had RBs who could block behind him

Funchess could be regarded as one of the greatest if not the greatest TE in the history of UofM by the time he leaves in 2yrs.



11/26/2013 - 2:04pm Fairly Petty - if not straight bluster

What kind of person would write a crazy diatribe which gets nasty and personal and sign their name?

Usually isn't that kind of an email anonymous?

11/26/2013 - 2:01pm 2006

the lead up to that game started in October

11/25/2013 - 11:25am Would be interesting at least

EMU needs something - if you are going to lose you might as well lose with STYLE!

11/25/2013 - 10:59am puncher's chance

according to the paper

since 1969 osu has not beat UofM by more than 11 points in ann arbor

11/07/2013 - 1:44pm Hoke is Dreamy

& this is awesome for Michigan


07/16/2012 - 2:59pm So ACC will have 14 teams?

seems like a lot

07/16/2012 - 2:56pm mason at 924

red has 752

needs a few more years to catch ron

07/13/2012 - 4:03pm who is BV?

waiting to go to the waffle house?

why didn't they just go?  I mean is it ever a bad time for chicken and waffles?

07/13/2012 - 9:23am dude is blocked

miggy at 3b fielder at 1b

can't be a corner infielder and play in the majors

if he can botch a fly ball into only a 1 base error he is ahead of delmon young

06/11/2012 - 1:27pm old yankee stadium

anyone else notice the 461' sign on the wall?

461" to center field would be one heck of a shot
