Pretty pathetic you're coming on a Michigan board to be an asshole to an injury to one of your own players.

03/17/2019 - 2:52pm I really hate how coaches…

I really hate how coaches are basically incentivized to cheat, given how minimal penalties against them are. Pearl has cheated at every school he has been at and his punishment...rewarded with million dollar contracts to coach again.

Coaches get punished with a 1 year suspension, while schools and students get the brunt of the sanctions. There should be a progressive system against coaches, something like 10 year ban, 20 year ban, lifetime ban.

If you depend on Reddit for your streams, then yes what you said will happen. Similarly, if you are using a smart TV app (which are usually very clunky), you MAY have issues.

I have not had one issue with YouTube TV cutting out or lagging going on over 6 months now. I use a Roku to run the app on one TV and a chromecast on another. Both work flawlessly.

Unlimited DVR for each separate user is a huge plus.

He nearly left last season and now the season is over. How do you have any issue with this?

03/10/2019 - 5:23pm I got some typical MSU…

I got some typical MSU douche jeers on the way out of the bar last night but nothing I wouldn't expect out of a rivalry game. Shitty people exist in all fan bases, you seem to have met one of those.

Personally I've never really understood the smack talk to opposing fans who weren't my buddies, as we are cheering over kids playing a game that we have no control over. Sucks losing. Sucks worse when you gotta deal with douchebags.

03/09/2019 - 6:31pm Disappointing season, but…

Disappointing season, but this is one of the youngest teams in college hockey. Only 3 seniors leaving plus in all likelihood Hughes (and possibly Norris). 15 underclassmen (10 frosh and 5 sophomores) make up this roster.

It's unrealistic in today's college hockey to make the tournament EVERY single season. Power houses missing this year: BC, BU, Wisconsin, North Dakota (maybe).

Quit being babies. Mel is a good coach and has the program in a great direction.

 

03/06/2019 - 5:38pm This is really dumb logic…

This is really dumb logic. If a player is out most of the season he is no longer a starter? So if you lose your #1 PG to injury before the season starts, in your eyes he isn't a 'starter' anyway?

MSU has had bad injury luck this year. They have been down 1 starter (Langford) for a significant portion of the season and another starter (Ward) for a number of games. They have also had various other injuries as most teams do. They are a deep team and it's why they've been able to be successful.

You think that losing Teske wouldn't GREATLY affect us?

They are good. We are good too. I hope we win the game on Saturday.

03/03/2019 - 2:56pm Cool bro.

Cool?

Let us know what other websites failed to mention Sparty.

Hockey without a BTN Plus subscription? What a concept!

02/19/2019 - 12:56pm PSU loss was brutal but…

PSU loss was brutal but advanced metrics say they are really not a bad team (KenPom #58! right now). It looks awful because they are 2-12 in the B1G. 

Crazy depth in the B1G right now considering that Rutgers is the lowest rated at 85. 

We prob should be ahead of Nevada right now but we have plenty of big games left to move up. 

02/12/2019 - 11:53pm No, not him.

 

No, not him.

 

02/04/2019 - 7:48pm I think more than any other…

I think more than any other game this season the officials let the players play. There were a bunch of plays where ticky-tack PI that we've been accustomed to would have been called at any other time this season.

I can also recall several hits on the QBs in this game that, especially early in the year, would have been deemed unnecessary roughness (notably the Donald hit on Brady early in the game where he threw him down, and several others where players didn't completely avoid landing with their body weight on the QB).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDnLVHGdaEQ

A lot of people complain about these types of calls during the year that lead to a bunch of offense, but then complain about how 'awful' the game is when it is a defensive battle.

Michigan's 5 on 3 PP this year has been dreadful.

You can download BTN2Go on a lot of devices (Roku, Amazon Fire (via Fox Sports Go app), Google Play store, maybe directly on some smart TVs?, phone) to watch directly on TV or possibly cast from your phone.

01/31/2019 - 4:56pm Conboy definitely retaliated…

Conboy definitely retaliated against the hit and checked from behind/punched Kampfer, but that is not all that unusual in hockey, as you obviously know being one of the bigger hockey fans on the site. Clean hits are 'retaliated' against all the time and MSU was pissed about losing 5 times in the same season (doesn't make it right--but I'm just saying people generally don't react favorably to being hit, whether legal or not).

The slash by Tropp was completely inexcusable. Even Conboy pushed him away in the video after he did that.

Comley did kick both players off the team for the rest of the season, but Tropp returned the next year.

01/31/2019 - 3:47pm That was a little different…

That was a little different situation.

Michigan had beaten MSU 4 times already that season and were closing out a 5th victory. Steve Kampfer had just returned from a concussion. He delivered a big, clean, hit on Corey Tropp and then Tropp retaliated by slashing him in the neck/head area. The crowd was very aware of the prior injury and the number of games he missed that season, so that chant was much more of a heat of the moment thing.

01/22/2019 - 12:03pm Madison is a very cool city…

Madison is a very cool city. It feels very similar to Ann Arbor with lots of local restaurants, shops, etc. and most people I have talked to who have been to both say similar things. The Madison equivalent of Main Street is State Street. There are all kinds of different ethnic cuisines as well as plentiful Wisconsin food (brats, beer, and cheese curds).

If you're into history, the capitol has a quick 45min free tour offered hourly daily, which I really enjoyed.

Staying anywhere between the capitol and Camp Randall will put you right in the middle of everything. If you want something quieter I would say go outside of that area.

I'll second going to the Union and having a beer on the terrace overlooking Lake Mendota.

01/17/2019 - 10:49am Making the NCAA hockey…

Making the NCAA hockey tournament every single year is incredibly difficult to do. What Red Berenson accomplished during the streak was remarkable, but aided by the fact that fewer players left early in the 90s and 2000s.

Some of the college hockey powerhouses (and years) that have missed the tournament recently: North Dakota (2018), Minnesota (2016, 2018), BU (2013, 2014, on pace to miss this year), BC (2017, 2018, on pace to miss this year), Denver (2012), Wisconsin (haven't made since 2014).

It is far more common for NHL prospects to leave after 1 or 2 seasons now and that makes it very difficult to maintain annual success, especially when many of the smaller schools have players that are starting their eligibility at age 21 (compared to B1G schools which have a higher percentage of 18 and 19 year old freshman). This is partly the reason we have seen many schools recently win their 1st championship (Duluth, Yale, Union, Providence), which overall I think is actually good for college hockey.

The hockey program is in great shape, and still has a chance to make the tournament this season. Expecting 90s era results though is unrealistic in today's environment.

(for those who prefer a score) 

USA wins 2-1 and will play for the gold!

12/27/2018 - 4:42pm I completely disagree that…

I completely disagree that 16 teams will cheapen the playoff, considering that every single level of football other than FBS uses a model similar to that. The regular season would not be cheapened, as it would still be very advantageous to have a higher seed. 

I've never really agreed with the whole 'best team' argument. Does the on-paper 'best team' win every single year in any other major sports championship? HELL NO. That's the aspect that makes sports and in particular, playoffs, so exciting. If you're among the top teams during the regular season you qualify for the chance to compete for a championship. Nobody gets mad when an upset happens in the NCAA Basketball Tournament, even though the 'better team' lost.

Don't teammates still refer to him as X, not Z despite his spelling switch?

12/09/2018 - 3:03pm The team was in the playoff…

The team was in the playoff hunt until the last game of the season. I would hardly call the football program as in a mess right now. Awful game, but another 10 win season.

Also I don't think the 'moron' is having any effect over the success of the football program.

Little Giants had the freaking Annexation of Puerto Rico. Wonder if their OC is available?

Michigan loses recruit. Board loses mind.

Yes follow closely and agree, really wish more games were televised/available beyond BTN+.

At minimum every UM/MSU game should be on FSD or BTN.

11/27/2018 - 2:56pm For anybody not listening to…

For anybody not listening to the weekly Attack Each Day Harbaugh Podcast you are missing out.

Bitterly disappointing result on Saturday but hearing Jim and Jack each week makes me appreciate even more that this man is our coach. Lost of room to improve but we are still headed in the right direction.

11/05/2018 - 2:53am Yeah how could a defensive…

Yeah how could a defensive player possibly go to any other school but Michigan and develop into an NFL player? 

Come on man, I love Don Brown and Mattison, but Alabama has a pretty good track record of putting people in the NFL (and by pretty good I mean extraordinary).

10/22/2018 - 9:42pm Michigan has lost 15 of 17…

Michigan has lost 15 of 17 to OSU (15 of 19 if we want to feel better). So are we just an afterthought to them?

You can claim that we have been terrible in the past decade and that has allowed MSU to regularly beat us, and you wouldn't be wrong. But if you're telling me that you haven't been extremely pissed off losing to them over the past decade since they are 'just an afterthought', I'd say you're lying. Yes, Michigan is a bigger rival to MSU than MSU is to Michigan, but quit acting like it doesn't mean anything.

Rivalry games are what makes college football >>>>> NFL. It's what makes running MSU into the ground far more satisfying than Northwestern or Maryland.

10/22/2018 - 9:19pm You must be 120 years old…

You must be 120 years old and have been around since our 1st game against them in 1898.

We played 42 times from 1898-1949, MICH leads 33-6-3.

All time series currently stands at 70-36-5 meaning since 1948, MICH leads 37-30-2.

Claiming that you don't care about this game, or how they aren't our 'rival' is moronic. Claiming that the games don't count when one of the teams is 'down' is also moronic. If you truly think that way you are no better than Sparty clowns and their twisted logic.

I stated that OSU is obviously more important. However, we have 3 main rivals-- ND, MSU, OSU. Why do you think beating them is so satisfying and losing to any of them is so aggravating?

10/22/2018 - 6:27pm Exactly. This is what makes…

Exactly. This is what makes rivalries fun. It fired us up, it fired them up.

We are just A LOT better. Anybody who is upset over this needs to grow a pair. GET OVER IT PPL!

10/22/2018 - 6:03pm Come on, this again? We've…

Come on, this again? We've won 2/3 and 4/12 (and yes 9 of the last 17). We dominated them and it was satisfying as hell.

Quit acting like this isn't a big game though. Obviously OSU is bigger but you're acting a fool.

10/21/2018 - 11:57pm Sometimes they wear helmets…

Sometimes they wear helmets and sometimes they don't during the walk.

I agree this was a stupid stunt to try to intimidate us, evident by Mork smiling behind them.

It also could have easily been avoided by Bush and co moving out of the way and/or MSU unlinking arms as they did for Mork at the very beginning of the video (though I think Sparty was wrong and should have shown up on time).

This is much more something for the media to write about and use in promos in future seasons than anything to get upset over.

Michigan destroyed them. Move on.

 

 

10/18/2018 - 7:51pm Considering Sean Miller is…

Considering Sean Miller is still coaching at Arizona, I would say Bill Self will survive this. There are far too many programs involved for the NCAA to do anything.

Time to put the banners back up. Remember, if you cheat, just make sure a lot of other schools are doing it concurrently so you won't get punished.

10/15/2018 - 11:39pm Sherman grabbed Adams well…

Sherman grabbed Adams well past 5 yards = illegal contact.

That is called that way all the time but is just another example of how no defense is allowed anymore.

10/15/2018 - 10:02pm Rodgers has been far from…

Rodgers has been far from perfect tonight.

I love TB12 but I've seen people on here mention how Brady wins despite awful defense and that is far from the truth.

GB points allowed rank since Rodgers 2008-17:

22(missed playoffs), 7, 2(SB), 19, 11, 24, 13, 12, 21, 26(missed playoffs- Rodgers hurt)

NE points allowed rank since Brady 2001-17:

6(SB), 17(missed playoffs), 1(SB), 2(SB), 17, 2, 4, 8(Cassel), 5, 8, 15, 9, 10, 8(SB), 10, 1(SB), 5

TB12 is historically great and is clearly the most successful QB of all time. Ignoring how good NEs defense has been year after year is wrong though.

All time great QB + great defense = LOTS OF SBs

All time great QB + awful defense = GB Packers lol

10/15/2018 - 9:30pm I like offense but it's…

I like offense but it's out of control in the NFL. These are basically Arena Football League games. 

Every week you can pencil in an average QB with a 400yd, 5TD game. 

10/14/2018 - 11:17am Yes, need to let playmakers…

Yes, need to let playmakers get the ball quicker and have them make plays

10/10/2018 - 10:01am Totally agree. The sincerity…

Totally agree. The sincerity of the Harbaughs is very apparent in these interviews. 

While many people, especially rival fanbases, claimed that all of Harbaugh's Twitter adventures were just for attention, it's very clear from the podcast that 'enthusiasm unknown to mankind' is how he actually lives his life (eg sleepover, Judge Judy, going to class with Asiasi). He genuinely loves life and it's really fascinating listening to the stories from Jack and Jim.

10/09/2018 - 10:08pm Dan Dickerson should move to…

Dan Dickerson should move to TV. He is fantastic calling college hockey games as well.

10/08/2018 - 3:23pm 'I am not one to advocate…

'I am not one to advocate head hunting or dirty play, but I really hope we blow someone's knee out this weekend'

You are exactly the type to advocate dirty play as you did just that. GTFO of here with that shit.

They are an opponent but they are also fellow humans. Seriously you are an embarrassment to the Michigan fanbase with that garbage. 

09/30/2018 - 11:14am It frustrates me how slow…

It frustrates me how slow developing our plays are.

The few times we ran WR screens we typically picked up good yardage. If you watch OSU, the majority of their plays are quick slants/screens and they let their playmakers make plays.

The modern game is much more dependent on quick 2-3yard passes and letting WRs get YAC, and we seem to be way behind on that.

09/23/2018 - 3:47pm And the fact that Rodgers…

And the fact that Rodgers got picked up and thrown to the grown and landed on top of 3 plays before that with no flag.

09/17/2018 - 7:39pm Who could possibly want to…

Who could possibly want to go to Alabama's horrible program without money involved, right?

09/15/2018 - 8:52pm Man I gotta say I really see…

Man I gotta say I really see 2 guarantee wins on the schedule (Maryland, Rutgers), 3 should wins (Neb assuming better frosh QB plays, NW, Indiana) and 4 who knows (Wis, MSU, PSU, OSU). 

I'm not concerned about the secondary working the kinks out (we better not have SMU refs again) but the O is really concerning. I'm hoping for a work in progress, but we're going to really struggle against better teams playing like we have.

09/15/2018 - 4:22pm Heisman lol. Aaron Rodgers…

Heisman lol. Aaron Rodgers would struggle behind this o line 

09/15/2018 - 3:27pm Scott Frost is anyone but he…

Scott Frost is annoying but he has a backup QB who should not be a B1G QB. Sound familiar?

Probably going to be a rough season but he needs a few years. Nebraska will likely be relevant again under him.
