The NCAA has zero interest in discontinuing their cash cow. Well...one of the two.

They'll punish the hell out of Directional School U.....but Duke....no damn way.

06/23/2016 - 9:20am Conspiracy or truth??

9/11.....absolutely. Yeah sure....Bin Laden was responsible, so we'll go after....Saddam?? Sure. Tell me more. 

Black Panthers. Cointelpro. Nuff said.

Assassination of Malcolm X?? Wasn't the black guys who "shot" him at stage side. Forensics say the shots came from a downward trajectory.....aka....FBI "surveillance" from the rafters.

Trump is a Clinton plant. Easy to see. Nobody intentionally alienates every single race or group in America but white people - except David Duke.

He'll hire someone else who will be really good, I'm sure.

03/08/2013 - 1:52pm A simple Google search after

A simple Google search after being disgusted with other random places....mainly Mlive.... Found this place & have never left since. Rarely comment, but love the professionalism & the way the board self moderates.

01/16/2013 - 5:11pm For once in my lifetime, I'd

For once in my lifetime, I'd like to see them address the offensive line. Just might wanna protect your franchise QB so he can get the ball to the best player in the league, me thinks.

Backus, Peterman, Raiola & Cherilus can ALL hit the bricks. Sims is the only serviceable lineman we have. Hopefully Reiff is ready to step in as well. 

01/05/2013 - 1:27pm Just a random guess...

I'd say the song he's rapping/singing is "No Problem" by Lil Scrappy

Looks like he's saying, "you dont want these problems, problems"

Just a guess though...

03/21/2012 - 9:19am Trojans!!

Best team in the state....easily.

Best coaching tree as well. Lou Dawkins won back-to-back titles at SHS. Kalamazoo's Mike Thomas (an SHS alum, won title as player) won back-to-back titles coaching K'Zoo. And now Julian Taylor (current SHS coach, alum, former player) is on his way as well. Another banner for "Da High" is on its way!! #Trojans

03/09/2012 - 7:55pm HORRIBLE display of

HORRIBLE display of basketball today. We picked a bad time for this kinda game...

03/09/2012 - 7:22pm We have NO flow on offense.

We have NO flow on offense. Hopefully Coach Beilein remedies that. To me, that our glaring issue, besides rebounding. Better flow on offense & knock down a few shots?? We can win semi-comfortably...

11/25/2011 - 7:00pm BEAT OHIO!!!

BEAT OHIO!!!

11/21/2011 - 7:26pm Our safeties have to play...

their smartest, most efficient game of the year. Cannot let Posey get behind them. That's tsio's only shot, outside of screens to rb's & wr's....slip screens/bubble screens, etc. Contain Herron...most notably, cut back lanes & we'll be fine. 0-1 turnovers from Denard = win by 10+

11/19/2011 - 4:38pm Next week...

High noon.

 

tsio SMACKDOWN commences...

11/18/2011 - 6:42pm Lou Holtz just picked us to win....

Shit...

Damn...

Ouch...

 

Guess I'll counter that with some voodoo. Anybody have a Taylor Martinez doll?? Pins??

11/21/2010 - 8:17pm I don't post much...

and everyone seems to have great points/counterpoints.

 

I think the OP is stating something very obvious, yet overlooked. He's NOT saying that people should be "happy" about 7 wins. But how can you be sooooo mad, angry, yaaarrrr, unacceptable, grumble, grrrrrrr, etc?? Especially after first realizing these same things BEFORE the season even started??

WE KNEW THAT THE DEFENSE would be troublesome.

AND THAT WAS BEFORE we lost 10, 000 db's off the roster.

If I'm dating a slut?? I'm not gonna go on a killing spree if she screws the poolboy.

I'd probably shrug & chalk it up to her actually BEING A SLUT....

*We'll be fine. Go Blue!!!

09/20/2010 - 6:07pm Most of the head coaches involvement...

as it pertains to the defense is in the coaches meeting. It's there that overall judgements/concerns are brought up & hashed out. Once they get on the practice field, it's all about installing next week's gameplan.

I'm just hoping that in the coaches meeting, they can figure out what to do in this 3-3-5.... Namely, attacking. At some point, when the defense is struggling, you have to dial it up. You can't have your defense out there in a slugfest, drive after drive, being methodically broken down. Our defense wasn't gonna be a worldbeater this year & we all knew that anyhow. I'd be fine with blitzing & taking some chances. Yes, we'd give up some big plays...but we'd create some of our own as well. Our defense wouldn't be as beat up, though (IMO) & we'd create more scoring chances, which (with our offense) would be scary for opposing teams...

09/18/2010 - 6:31pm I'm not sure...

whose idea it was (GERG or RR) to install this 3-3-5.....and I'm certainly NOT a fan of it....

BUT....

If we are gonna use it?? We have to attack. This is NOT a set that you can sit back in. 3rd & very long MAYBE....but generally, no. Too many gaps in it to exploit & we have too many linebackers that aren't good at reading & reacting. A good defensive gameplan puts players in positions that maximize their chances to succeed CONSISTENTLY, i.e. - Mouton (just one example - not singling him out).

Mouton attacking = good chance he makes a play or blows it up for someone else to clean up

Mouton reading & reacting = not so much

BTW, no overreacting here. I think we can clean these things up & will do so. Simply an observation....

We'll get em next week!! Go Blue!!

08/18/2010 - 5:54pm I respect the concern, but...

....wow.... Is the sky falling?? Hopefully none of the players slotted to fill in don't read this. Doom & gloom all over the place. Let's not hope for a guy to step up & play well, shall we?? ...smh...

I'm in the minority, obviously....but I'm still optimistic for a good season. +1 to the OP

08/17/2010 - 5:54pm Maybe I'm just a hopeful optimist, but...

I'm so convinced that we are gonna run out of that tunnel & lay the wood to UConn....

38-17

Go Blue!!

08/15/2010 - 8:22pm Oklahoma & Texas

aren't exactly "on the make" either.... I can't wait until we shut some folks up this year. Redemption is gonna taste real good....

08/11/2010 - 9:23am Turnovers, turnovers, TURNOVERS....

No need to outthink the room. This may be a different era, but football is STILL football....and if you constantly shoot yourself in the foot?? It catches up to you eventually. I'm very excited about our offense & can wax poetically about the sum of its parts, i.e. our potential explosiveness in regards to speedsters like Shoelace, Gallon, T-Rob, etc. Yet, I temper my giddyness by simplifying my expectations & outlook. If we don't turn over the ball as much?? We win more games, imo. Addition by subtraction.

Class act....

07/30/2010 - 11:45am Her name is

Karamel. "Met" her at a certain gentleman's establishment in Atlanta. Certainly not the worst $200 I've ever spent. As you can tell, she earned her place as my avatar. Well, at least until I go back to Atl & "meet" another one while away on business. Who says work can't be productive??

07/29/2010 - 9:10pm Glad to see a kid

that's so grounded in his faith. A sure sign of a solid family structure. A family structure that saw THE SAME FAMILY TRAITS in RR & crew. I'm ecstatic about where this program is headed...and that's back to where it belongs. On top. And doing it the right way. Kudos to Coach Rod & staff. Also, a big thanks to Tom for excellent info. Go Blue!!

07/29/2010 - 8:59pm Very solid

commit for RR & crew. Definitely pleasing to see another defensive player in this class...and a good student to boot. All smiles this way....

07/14/2010 - 8:52pm Brandon

As professional as they come. I don't wish any ill will upon Mr. Labadie. It pretty much had to end this way due to circumstances that WERE in his control. Despite his obvious blunders, I wish him well moving forward. As well, we should do the same...

Move forward... Go Blue!

07/13/2010 - 5:57pm Maybe I'm drinking blue kool-aid on this, but...

the ONLY major concern I have is the kicking game. It's underappreciated by most....until you miss a chip shot fg in the 4th qtr, or shank a punt. Hagerup is regarded as a good prospect, so I hope I'm pleasantly surprised there. As for the defense?? An average, opportunistic defense will be ok in my book, given the question marks (perceived or not) that we have on that unit...

All in all, I'm ready for some redemption.... Go Blue!!

06/09/2010 - 11:23pm Maybe I'm not informed on the MLB Draft...

but in looking at our draft picks, it seems like position players are GLARINGLY missing, but there are like 7 catchers in there. WTH?? Are position switches THAT prominent?? I think we need bats at SS & 3rd IN THE WORST WAY, imho...

06/09/2010 - 11:05pm Maybe I'm guilty of a smidgen of...

naivete, but I'm of the opinion that it's as cut & dry as DD's interview makes it out to be. DD had every chance in the world to put the administration on blast, or insinuate that there were shady dealings going on. He didn't, so (at least in my mind) there's no trip to AA Torch & Pitchfork in my future on this....

06/09/2010 - 10:50pm Add me to the list of...

the folks that are content with just adding Nebraska & simultaneously giving ND the middle finger. I HATE the fact that they thumb their nose at our conference, lauding their independent status...all while playing our teams. I know it's more wishful thinking than anything, but I'd LOVE IT if we expanded without them & then prohibited any Big Ten team from playing them. Let their sorry asses flail in the wind by playing all of the service academies, the Coast Guard & Cub Scout Troop #13....with the usual beatdown at the hands of USC. See how they like those apples...

06/09/2010 - 10:20pm Everytime Porcello pitches....

.....I pray to God that Jacob Turner is one step closer to the big leagues.

 

SN: I'm equally irritated with the "automatic 3 outs" at the bottom of our lineup. Seriously...

04/04/2010 - 6:32pm Izzo did actually mention it...

in the quick post game interview while outside the locker room (not the official post-game presser). He made mention to the effect that contact was made & "maybe" a foul "could have" been called...

04/04/2010 - 6:23pm Glad to see competence...

in our leader. For the longest time, we've been at a total disadvantage in recruiting...as far as facilities relate to it. Our academic standing is unparalleled. However, the tools that would sell a prospective recruit, fall far short. We couldn't show them a top-notch practice facility where they would hone their skills at a moment's notice. Instead, they would only be able to share Crisler with 2 other programs (Women's BB, Wrestling), or run down to the local YMCA (if it's open). And speaking of Crisler... We could only show them a morbidly dim, skeleton of an arena that is Crisler. If anything, these things RAN RECRUITS AWAY FROM US. To see that the wheels are in motion to shore up these deficiencies is very enlightening. Here's to future successes... Go Blue!
