03/18/2018 - 12:23pm Trey’s trey

Trey’s trey for me. I ran around my house after Poole’s ball went in, but let’s be honest, that was a heave and the gods were on our side. Trey got to his spot on the court and made an amazing shot. Poole’s result however was obviously more climatic as it ended the game. Burke’s got us to OT.

02/24/2018 - 8:41am Cleaves was always going to be a Spartan

I went to school with Mateen from 2nd grade to high school graduation. He was always the biggest Spartan fan and probably still owes me a dollar or two from our bets as kids for the UM/MSU football games. He was destined for MSU. Mo-Pete wasn’t heavily recruited out of high school and at that time Michigan was recruiting nationally. Antonio Smith, also a Flintstone was a more highly recruited player than Mo-Pete and chose MSU. Michigan also lost out on Robaire Smith, Antonio’s brother, a DT/DE that went on to play in the NFL. Those Flint boys were always about MSU. They weren’t going to Michigan.

10/12/2017 - 2:21pm Good healthy discussion.

Thanks for the comment, this is good healthy discussion. I'm too young to consider Pele as part of my generation.  He did most of his work in the 60s, early 70s.  Others will argue that Maradona or/and Ronaldo are better players than Messi, partially because they've won trophies at the international level.  I don't know enough about soccer to engage in those conversations.

"Maybe Messi does something great next summer, but history is against him", is all the more reason for me to root for him.  Root for the underdog, and hope that one of the greatest of all time can bring home a trophy for his country.  I assume he's a GOD in Argentina.  Is there a bigger word for him if he brings home the world cup trophy?

*btw, I always enjoy reading your posts*

10/12/2017 - 2:06pm MLS has some blame for the US not qualifying.

This was said by a talking head on ESPN, not an original thought.  MLS is partially to blame for the U.S. not qualifying because it's made the other teams in CONCACAF better.  More and more players from Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, the Caribbean Islands are playing in MLS.  Although not a top domesitc league in the World, still top 2 in North America with Liga MX and offers valuable training and game experience against our US MLS players.  We are not only developing our talent, but others in our region as well.  

10/11/2017 - 10:46pm Argentina because of Messi

sorry double post

10/11/2017 - 10:46pm Argentina because of Messi

Arguably top 2 best player in our generation.  I prefer him to others because he seems to go about his business, rarely dives and I've never witnessed a game where he fakes an injury to draw a card.  He seems like a classy player (Real Madrid fans will likely disagree) and he's delivered for his team.  I'd like to see him win one to cap off his career. Sucks Pulisic will be watching from home.  He's the best U.S. player I've seen and shows a lot of heart, unlike some of the other players on the pitch last night.  

05/24/2017 - 10:51pm Sometimes Michigan improves with an early departure

Sometimes Michigan improves with an early departure too.  Think back to Darius Morris and how many of us didn't think he should leave after his sophmore year.  In Morris's case, I don't know if he would've improved his draft stock/made more guaranteed money if he stayed another year or two.  What we do know is that Michigan handed the keys to freshman Trey Burke and let him play 30+ mins his freshman year.  This valuable on court experience resulted in player of the year Trey Burke his sophmore year, and Michigan in the championship game vs. Louisville.  Maybe there's a silver lining to DJ leaving early.

too funny!

03/21/2017 - 10:07am duck 2 ways

I would recommend duck 2 ways.  I'd butcher the duck so that I had 4 pieces of meat, 2 thigh -leg parts, 2 breasts.  Take the skin/fat from the other parts and render down for duck fat. Connfit the thigh - legs and serve over a medley of greens (salad).  Main course of duck breast, medium rare with roasted fingerling potatoes or beets.  

02/03/2017 - 5:41pm actually...

Paramus is a borough in Bergen county.  Don't think the town was named after either school, likely the other way around. 

01/29/2017 - 4:54pm Congrats - anyone else notice the Jordan's???

Congrats to the kid, wish him luck at Michigan, But wow, anyone notice the maize and blue Jordan 12 and 14s? I saw a flyer with all the Jordan's in maize and blue and assumed they were photoshopped. Seeing the 12s in maize and blue makes me drool. How great would it be to have Jordan brand release the 11s and 12s in Michigan colors for public consumption?

12/28/2016 - 1:08pm Hart was pretty good

Mike Hart was pretty good his freshman year. He set a Michigan record for most rushing yards in a season by a freshman: 1455 yds. credit: wikipedia, not WD.

11/06/2016 - 7:49pm Rules Question on the Peppers throwback

You may know the answer or maybe someone else will chime in.  At 5:51 of your highlight video, Peppers throwback to Speight, the handoff occurs forward of the QB.  If Speight 'tosses/pitches' it forward, they score this in the stat sheet as a pass / catch.  I'm wondering why the refs didn't flag this as an illegal forward pass on Speight's 2nd throw?  Was it simply because they considered it a handoff even though Peppers was forward of the QB?  If this was an out of time desparation play with many laterals beyond the line of scrimmage, I don't think the refs would allow a forward handoff without flagging it as an illegal forward pass.

11/02/2016 - 6:41pm Darboh keeping his feet

Darboh played an amazing game, with some spectacular catches.  Would’ve liked to have seen him keep his feet on the post route where Speight made a play by avoiding the blitzer.  Darboh keeps his feet and it’s 21-10.  Instead we end up having to kick a 23 yd fg.  Our receivers have been pummeled on a couple of crossing routes this year and I think Darboh was expecting contact that never came.  Anyone else notice that our WRs are going to ground early when making a catch?

And Big Worm

08/23/2016 - 6:38pm Yep Brandon Graham

I'm with this guy HAIL HARBO.  Brandon Graham was a beast.  Dr Blitz maybe wouldn't need to call so many blitzes with a line of Graham, Gary, Charlton, Wormley, Glasgow, Mone, Hurst, etc. 

11/29/2015 - 2:27pm He brought Wilson into the box

He brought Wilson into the box and Barrett immediately hit Marshall with a touchdown over the top of Clark and Hill.  Great play by the OSU receiver and good recognition by Barrett to see Wilson playing run.  Said over and over again, we're not a deep team and to lose so much on the d-line did us in. Hurst, Henry, Wormley, and Charlton were all gassed. No trust in Godin or Strobel based on the Indiana game. They played more plays in the last 2 games on average than they did all year.

04/30/2015 - 11:57am In-N-Out, but if you're in NY/NJ Shake Shack

took talking about burgers to get me to write my first response. I don't find Five Guys burgers to be that good.  Their pan-grilled hot dogs are not bad though.  In-N-Out is a fast food burger, but one of the best you can get.  Double / Double animal style has enough meat, but isn't overwhelming.  If you're in NY or NJ, give Shake Shack a try. IMHO, best fast food burger.  Side note, I would take a Culver's butter burger over a five guys burger.
