09/24/2016 - 8:23pm What are people's thoughts on

What are people's thoughts on the Wisconsin-MSU game? I missed it, but looking at the box score, it looks a little flukey. A 66 yard fumble return for a TD, MSU botches a snap giving Wisconsin the ball at the 5 yard line, terrible interception by O'Connor gives Wisconsin the ball at the 28.

Meanwhile, MSU went away from their run game and had their untested QB throwing a lot. Even in the first half before the game got away, it looked like they were running less than usual.

Just looks like a curious game to me on paper, wondering how it looked live?

09/17/2016 - 10:54pm Speight's stats through 3

Speight's stats through 3 games as a redshirt sophmore: 51/80 (63.8%), 8TD, 1 INT. 

Clearly we should bench him, no sense in developing this underclassman further. Especially considering how successful benching our past starting QBs has been (Benching Gardner for Morris, benching Threet for Sheridan).

Wouldn't get too optimistic. Rutgers and Indiana have two of the worst passing defenses in college football

05/01/2015 - 5:25am Excellent 1st round by

Excellent 1st round by Mayhew. Interior O-line was by far the weakest unit last year and these moves help shore it up. Tomlinson is the best guard in the draft and Ramirez can take over center. Malcolm Brown is a talent, but he does't fit in with Detroit's scheme.

02/11/2015 - 11:26am I think people are

I think people are misunderstanding. They aren't proposing to scrap "The Victors" and replace it with something new. They are just suggesting adding a new fight song. We already have a second fight song called "Varsity". This would just be a third one in addition to the other two.

I guess that's not nearly as egregious to me as it is to others. It'll probably sound terrible though.

Additionally, Peterson would stuff leaves in his son's mouth while beating him and brags in a text message about "tearing that butt up".…


The child also alleges that AP struck him in the face, but testimony from children is often unreliable.


Edit: But it's ok because my pappy used to tell me to fetch the switch that he would beat me with when we lived on the farm!

06/22/2014 - 8:39pm Germany can beat the US by 3

Germany can beat the US by 3 goals and the US would still go through if Portugal wins by only 1 or if Portugal/Ghana tie. Hell, Germany could beat us 10 - 0 and we are still through if Ghana/Portugal tie (and there is a decent chance this happens).

I don't know how you put those last 15 seconds on Klinsman. At 94:30, the USA probably had literally a 98% chance of winning that game. Klinsman has done a terrific job so far this World Cup, all without his star striker.

One of my favorite moments in that game was MSU slapping the floor for the 14th time, immediately followed by Walton stuffing a 3-pointer down their throats.

You are "done" with the NFL because of the officiating in that game? You must be new to sports in general.

I'm going to go against the grain and say the playcall was just fine. It appeared if DG waits 0.5 - 1.0 more second, Gallon was going to open for the win.  DG wasn't under pressure, stared down Dileo and made a quick throw with a guy jumping the route.


Good playcall, bad decision by DG.

If I recall correctly, Stefon Diggs allegedly has character issues.A while back he was trash talking Dorial Green Beckham on his twitter account and calling some high school teams "phony" because they had a lot of white players.

08/29/2011 - 4:06pm The Heisman is more of an

The Heisman is more of an award to the player with the most media hype than the most valuable. Michigan won't win enough games to make him a contender.  Denard could break every record in the book but if Michigan loses 4-5 games due to a lousy defense, the talking heads will say he lacks "game-winning ability".

05/16/2009 - 7:58pm For anyone watching the game

For anyone watching the game tonight or following it on gametracker, know that UM sometimes comes out of the gate slow, but turns it up big time in the 2nd half. Don't get too down if they are losing at half.

Also, I believe they'll go varsity soon enough. After all, the new football training facility on south campus is really primarily a new lacrosse field.

05/15/2009 - 12:42pm Suing would be an incredibly

Suing would be an incredibly pussy thing to do and I guarantee the University of Michigan would be mocked nationwide for weeks for it's pettiness if they ever considered it.

05/15/2009 - 12:24pm My favorite thing is when

My favorite thing is when Mickey and Ken go off on a tangent about the merits of wood sticks versus composite ones.

I think they were a bit more homer-ish this series than normal. I think they were frustrated because they really felt like the Wings were the better team (Babcock also said he felt that Detroit outplayed Anaheim in every game, even the ones they lost). I kind of agree.

05/14/2009 - 10:50pm Hah, to me really, it's

Hah, to me really, it's things like this that makes the rivalry great. A lot of other schools that claim to have a better rivalry than us (like the ones in the SEC) don't ever care enough to do stuff like this.

05/14/2009 - 10:41pm Yeah, Grady is really pushing

Yeah, Grady is really pushing for a boot. If he isn't off the team by the start of the season, he'll be so far down the depth chart he might as well be.

05/13/2009 - 3:59pm Going by Scout's rankings,

Going by Scout's rankings, our top 5 don't really match up with theirs:

PSU: #2 MLB, #3 QB, #9 OG, #14 RB, #21 WR (1 5-star, 3 4-stars, 1 3-star)


Michigan: #7 QB, #15 S, #19 WR, #26 WR, #41 RB (4 4-stars, 1 3-star)

05/07/2009 - 5:14pm Wow, Michigan fans are

Wow, Michigan fans are actually e-mailing Pryor? That's really embarassing.

05/06/2009 - 11:44am Yeah, posting his phone

Yeah, posting his phone number is not cool. I hope no one is actually obsessive enough to call and harass him.

04/30/2009 - 12:59pm I hope neither Cleveland or

I hope neither Cleveland or LA makes it because the media is insufferable regarding both these players. They are both great though; hard to say which one is better.

I like LeBron better though because he comes off as very mature in his interviews. I remember after US won gold in the Olympics, when Kobe was interviewed he acted like it was nothing and said he just "did what he does" or something like that. When LeBron was asked the same questions he talked about his respect for the other teams, the magnitude of the stage they played on, and his pride in representing the country. Those responses just seemed to reflect their personalities.

04/30/2009 - 12:45pm Good interview, Tom. He said

Good interview, Tom. He said a few positive things about Michigan (and Mathis) without even being lead into it.

04/29/2009 - 3:32pm Tough call. In McFarlin's

Tough call. In McFarlin's corner we have things like:

"Why did Mike Hart get drafted so late?
I have always kind of wondered why he got drafted so late. He set Michigan's all time rush record and was an absolute beast for us. 6th round is awfully late. I think the Colts got a steal because he is going to do great things there."

"I'm not understanding RR and his recruits. In 2008 all his recruits for the most part were smaller guys with a couple exceptions. Now as the 2009 class starts to take shape, all the guys are way taller and seem more like typical pro set style guys. The only exception would be Tony Drake. Why are we pretty much recruiting the reverse type of guy that we recruited in 2008? It doesn't make sense. Why can't we just have high profile players?"

And the famous "Michigan could go 12-0 this year." thread.

From R_mahorn1974 we have gems like:

"During t.v timeouts, its always silent waiting for the game to begin again. Why not have a 'Fan Cam' like all pistons and all other teams that do this......Also, have the cheerleaders or students go around the stadium shooting up michigan t-shirts to the people who are the loudest. Or give away free pizzas around the stadium to the fans who are the loudest."

"Can 2009 team be a 2006 team?

For those who didnt know, we started the 2006 season 11-0. So you may be thinking, NO WAY can this happen. But, did you know that 2006 team was supposed to be 5th in the CONFERENCE? Noone expected to start 11-0."

And in reference to Paulus potentially coming to Michigan:

"A good comparison could be Matt Mauck. The LSU QB from the National Champion 2003 team. Graduated HS in 1997, took a few years off because he played minor league baseball. Came back to school and few years later he won a National title(2003). But, it did take him 3 football seasons to win the national title.

Then, think Leak/Tebow. Leak the senior(paulus), with a QB everyone would rather see, Tebow(forcier)."

04/28/2009 - 12:57pm He was a redshirt freshman

He was a redshirt freshman for crying out loud. He can certainly compete for playing time in a couple years and I wouldn't be surprised if he is a big-time QB by his senior year.

04/28/2009 - 12:50am I thought LaTwan Anderson was

I thought LaTwan Anderson was expelled for shoving a teacher.

04/27/2009 - 3:20pm You're supposed to be bitter

You're supposed to be bitter and make passive condescending remarks like the OP.

04/26/2009 - 12:15pm I think MSU returns almost

I think MSU returns almost all of their starters on both sides, but the guys they do lose are key players. On offense they lost Hoyer, Ringer, and a couple O-lineman. On defense they lost two D-lineman, one LB, and Otis Wiley.

They'll get to a bowl game, but they will be throttled by Penn State and drop a couple others along the way. I think they've benefited more from the recent weakness of the Big 10 than any other team.

04/26/2009 - 12:09pm In that case, why don't we

In that case, why don't we just put Odoms at quarterback? QBs need to be able to throw, regardless of how fast he is. Denard is not a good passer. I am basing this on the fact that he completed fewer than 50% of his passes in high school among several other reasons.

04/25/2009 - 7:50pm Wow, sounds like a full

Wow, sounds like a full house.

Also, for anyone who was ripping on Pryor over some jersey scrimmage a week or so ago, feel free to ignore that he went 13/18 for 191 yards and a couple touchdowns in the spring game.

04/24/2009 - 9:27am Detroit's biggest weakness is

Detroit's biggest weakness is their penalty killing which Columbus was the least capable of exploiting. Anaheim, on the other hand, has a strong power play unit while Vancouver's is pretty meh. We match up with Vancouver better, but it looks like it may be Anaheim anyway.

04/22/2009 - 11:41am Tate doesn't give a damn if

Tate doesn't give a damn if Chris wants to ruin his career!

04/20/2009 - 11:41pm Has there ever been a direct

Has there ever been a direct quote from Boren where he said he left because of swearing? My understanding is that the belief is he left because of the staff's strict coaching style during practices. Michigan fans just cherry-picked the swearing thing and ran it into the ground.

04/20/2009 - 6:29pm If Forcier is healthy, it'll

If Forcier is healthy, it'll be him. Our QBs have always seemed to get dinged up right before the OSU game recently however, so it could also be Sheridan, who I am certain will be the 2nd-string QB. Injuries are impossible to predict though, so bet on Forcier.

04/20/2009 - 3:02pm I kind of hope San Jose can

I kind of hope San Jose can beat the Ducks because I'd feel pretty nervous about playing Anaheim next round. I noticed San Jose outshot Anaheim 44-26 last night and lost. That brings back nightmares from when Detroit used to get almost triple the amount of shots as their playoff opponents did and still lost.

04/19/2009 - 2:09pm Almost every QB takes the

Almost every QB takes the current QB situation of a team they are looking at into account. You're naive if you don't think there are players on Michigan who came here because they wanted easy playing time right away.
