|08/21/2018 - 12:48pm||I has a sad. But totally…||
I has a sad. But totally agree.
Salty re: schedule. Whoever made this schedule needs to be fired. WTH. Great team and you are putting them through the grinder. To prove what exactly? Win with wisconsin schedule and get into the damn playoffs!
|08/21/2018 - 12:31pm||But does he has sufficient…||
But does he has sufficient lung recoil to make it through the segment? You know, his ribs turned to paste at M...
|08/20/2018 - 12:33pm||Right there with you. I mean…||
Right there with you. I mean its a different tone if we reload like Alabama or OSU. But apparently we get a great team every 2-3 years (2016, now 2018) so ...wut?? ...WHY schedule ND on the road opening weekend. Get a tomato can -> smash that tomato can. Just don't get it...but hey Michigan football, experts in shooting their own foot.
Still Go blue and can't wait to prove the haters wrong. Beat MSU and OSU this year and I am ecstatic.
|08/20/2018 - 12:23pm||SOS is total horse manure…||
SOS is total horse manure. Play easy schedule and win your division = punch your ticket to playoff.
|08/20/2018 - 12:21pm||Totally agree. Such…||
Totally agree. Such imbalance. Also such garbage. Balance these GD divisions. Idiot Delaney.
|08/09/2018 - 2:49pm||You are a better man for re…||
You are a better man for re-watching that game. I couldn't even watch the game live and didn't have the heart to watch replays.
For whatever reason, MSU has special plays/blitzes when it comes to playing Michigan. They always fluster us and play us tough. I hate that. I want to beat them into a pulp for once...like OSU did last year. Is it too much asking for a 40-single digit M win against those mouth breathers?
Scary to think JBB had free rushers come from RT...hes the LT now? concerned.
|08/08/2018 - 3:07pm||Thats barely over 3 weeks…||
Thats barely over 3 weeks and we haven't heard a thing! God...where is all the inside information?
|08/08/2018 - 3:06pm||Noticed his pinky finger has…||
Noticed his pinky finger has abnormal extension. Injury or trigger finger? I say its Don brown going extra aggressive...
|08/08/2018 - 1:25pm||No they are not.
No they are not.
Do the easy schedule. Look at Bama. Only now with good Georgia and hopefully a tougher Aurburn do they have an OK schedule.
Play tomato cans and B1G. Don't shoot yourself in the foot with ND away game. With a strong team why the hell not get every advantage your side? I'm done with proving 'man ball'. Screw that. Blow through an ok schedule, get into CFP.
This committe is stupid. They just look at wins. SoS my ass. Lower down the list of things considered if its a P5 team.
|08/08/2018 - 1:16pm||Agreed. But wouldn't it be…||
Agreed. But wouldn't it be Shea/new QBs first start as well?
I expect less than smooth going.
|08/08/2018 - 12:13pm||Its BS
I think its…
I think its going to be a very tough game. Heck Georgia only won by 1 there last year.
|08/07/2018 - 4:31pm||I mean Milton hype is pretty…||
I mean Milton hype is pretty insane. Didn't he have a sub 50 completion percentage coming out of HS? And all of a sudden he is Robohenne? Skeptical...yet I'll eat any intel at this point. #footballseasonyet
|08/07/2018 - 3:45pm||Agreed. I mean in that 2016…||
Agreed. I mean in that 2016 game, Speight was throwing bombs and Darboh was ON FIRE. Kinda like how Braylon was in that 3OT game.
Sigh...I want to see mannighamesque buring of CBs. Miss that so much. Or just RB running for 80 yard TD, LBs giving up at 40 yard...
MSU needs to go down and I want to see Lewerke cry.
|08/07/2018 - 3:29pm||With you. Been waiting on…||
With you. Been waiting on some camp chatter. I mean come on, its 3.5 weeks till first game!
As an aside (or not), I was watching the 2016 MSU vs M game. Man we had some dudes then.We were punking MSU in their own stadium. Brings me to question, who are our "it" guys on offense? For example, every team has that electric player that can just overtake a game. I want M to have one. Shea? DBJ/Black who are uncoverable? Higdon who drags people for 10 yards?
|08/03/2018 - 11:38pm||Agreed. That's the Michigan…||
Agreed. That's the Michigan difference. Let's be honest, average michigan graduate/fan vs OSU fan. Yea...enough said. If they consider this michigan arrogance then so be it. Buncha idiots.
|08/01/2018 - 3:11pm||He is not out of the woods,…||
He is not out of the woods, but he is laying in the weeds...
|08/01/2018 - 2:51pm||Bribery ?||
|08/01/2018 - 2:44pm||You mean like Kevin Wilson…||
You mean like Kevin Wilson at Indiana who was then subsequently hired by...oh yea, OSU.
|08/01/2018 - 2:38pm||Article from 2013. Nothing…||
Article from 2013. Nothing to see here. But does prove that nothing will come off the latest controversy. For once I'd like to be wrong please.
|08/01/2018 - 2:33pm||Believe it when I see it…||
Believe it when I see it. This is OSU we are talking about.
But hey, koolaidman.gif
|07/28/2018 - 2:51pm||Totally agreed. Starting…||
Totally agreed. Starting this year we go auto 9+ wins as long as he's here. I've never seen depth like this in past years. Even OT group is being addressed (come on down Myles Hinton). Got stud RBs now a couple of stud WRs in the fold let's go for CFP every year and kick them bucknuts
|07/24/2018 - 8:02pm||No worries. Thought I'd…||
No worries. Thought I'd share. It literally just popped up on YouTube and I was happy to watch it × 10 for my fix :)
Noticed twist puck ups. Fantasizing about 60 yard TDs
|07/24/2018 - 4:20pm||P.S. Onwenu is still a…||
P.S. Onwenu is still a planet.
|07/19/2018 - 4:29pm||I believe he is realizing…||
I believe he is realizing that. When he had rudddooccckkk and Chesson+Darboh hosing fools it was all peaches. Young guys can't just pick it up fast so I believe he is buying into RPO. Doubt he'll change it majorly but FINALLY Michigan has continuity and depth (unless we start believing his flight risk to NFL) and players in a system. I think starting this year we will be seeing competitive to make playoff Michigan from here on out.
I also hope that since his system is NOT power spread, it starts giving fits to OSU and PSU (less time for them to practice against unique style)
|07/18/2018 - 2:11pm||About to cry. Excellent…||
About to cry. Excellent production. I need to get back to the campus. Miss is so gd much!
|07/16/2018 - 12:14pm||Good post. Thats what I've…||
Good post. Thats what I've been saying in the thread. Not bashing it, its just how can these soccer loving folks going to convince me that its actually entertaining? Goals are barely scored, dumb penalty kicks to decide the game, the diving etc etc. Lets take diving, while players complain even in football, is it EVER like Neymar bitching on the pitch or players surrounding the official to influence him on freekicks/PKs? No. Next down to get 10 yards in football. Max, Harbaugh is "bitter" about JT being short. If that were to happen in soccer there'll be street riots.
I'll take CF, for 100%, Alex.
Now its CAN be made better (I suggest loosening offside rules or allowing partial offsides I dunno...get creative or take notes from Cricket), and I can be convinced to watch it. Otherwise, forget it. May be soccer is best watched every 4 years during WC.
People aren't convincing more when they say "well may be its you and not the beautiful game". Ok. Thanks.
|07/16/2018 - 11:06am||True, but 2nd generation is…||
True, but 2nd generation is already "americanized" and they start playing football, bball, baseball etc not soccer. If you think about teenagers or 10+ yo immigrating well they are a bit preoccupied making it in USA.
Also this is for another commentator on scouting Latin players and giving them citizenship...yea ok. See my comments above (i.e. create a sh!tstorm at capital hill if its not already on immigration).
|07/16/2018 - 11:03am||I dont watch much soccer,…||
I dont watch much soccer, was it not clear already? Here I'll say it. I don't watch much soccer.
But hey clearly you watch it.
Not arguing better or not or intricacies, but guess what, PLENTY of people like me in USA. Argument is to bring soccer into the main foray. But how can you convince ME and younger kids its actually exciting when mostly its a snooze fest? Change that first. Hence my suggestion to make it a bit high scoring.
YES I will watch Indiana vs Northwestern. Why not? There'd be some touchdowns. Sorry but other than THIS world cup - where there was plenty of intrigue and actually 4+ goal score combined games - its mostly a 0-0 borehack.
|07/16/2018 - 10:31am||Because of access. You need…||
Because of access. You need a ball and thats it. When a kid - who just got fresh of child labor hours earning 2 cents/ day - he can kick a ball with friends on dirt ground or street.
Ice hockey requires spending good money to actually play. Also, soccer is an "older" game and has roots NOT in the West.
Still, Ice hockey is fun. Heck curling is fun too. Soccer is not bad, just can be made better and more fun but for the stubborness of people who claim "beautiful game" or some sort of superiorty of the sport which is dumb.
|07/16/2018 - 10:26am||Baseball may be boring but…||
Baseball may be boring but atleast teams get to 2-3 combined "runs" in a game. That is NOT the norm in soccer. This world cup with 4-2/4-3 is distorting that. You play soccer and you know it. A 0-0 and 1-0 game is tough to watch. More goals and I bet more people watch it; no doubt in my mind.
Football has plenty of action. Teams move forward on 3/4 plays or give up the ball. 7-0 wins are few and defensive plays are fun to watch. Soccer defensive play is a slide tackle or opportunity to Neymar to roll for 13093 hours.
|07/16/2018 - 10:14am||sorry misread it. But…||
sorry misread it. But immigrating is a minefield. Screw it. Those players will play in European clubs and go for their country instead of grinding visa here in USA. Why go through that trouble?
|07/16/2018 - 10:07am||lol @ make it easy to…||
lol @ make it easy to immigrate. Send that to current president and propogate in this environment. Good luck.
|07/16/2018 - 10:06am||So answer this:
If you had…
So answer this:
If you had the choice, would you want to watch college football RIGHT now vs soccer on another channel? I'll go CF all day everyday.
Lets be real, soccer plays 6th fiddle here in USA. We simply aren't motivated enough. While this world cup was awesome in upsets and goals, there are also tournaments where 0-0 or 1-0 on a PK happens x 10000. That is SO boring. Beautiful game? may be but its too slow. To me soccer should be revamped and be made more goal friendly. Yes it can be done, stop being stubborn FIFA / soccer "loving" nations. Example would be cricket - would you watch 5 day test series? Heck no. Watch T-20 where they are blasting sixers (think home runs) every 3rd ball and crowds going nuts.
Summary: USA athelets go football, basketball, baseball, hockey and then may be soccer if not already training for track and field to kick ass in the olympics.
|07/14/2018 - 7:39pm||I love the direction of our…||
I love the direction of our program but when the hell is Michigan going to overachieved? What's aggravating is MSU doing well with lower ranked classes and PSU winning the Fing big10 after sanctions. Irks me to no end. We need to win and win this year to win these recruiting wars going forward. Crushing USC for old times sake wouldn't hurt either.
Start college football already!
|07/05/2018 - 5:18pm||source?||
|07/03/2018 - 2:33pm||Is it just me or FINALLY…||
Is it just me or FINALLY Michigan has the depth everywhere. Seemingly every year there is XYZ position is thin. Feels like now we are locked and loaded, and while I hate the 'wait till next year' gah gah as anyone, but we have the depth to go toe to toe with top teams.
|06/19/2018 - 3:36pm||More importantly
How the F…
How the F is Wisonsin hit rate on RBs 100% while we have 5 star duds?
Ughh x infinity.
|06/07/2018 - 3:17pm||tl;dr
|06/07/2018 - 12:21pm||Yea you're right. I just…||
Yea you're right. I just feel like they were slipping in mediocrity from late Paterno years and M beat them on the regular (we still do). Its just that I would want a Barkely on M team :)
Also I hate that best B1G teams are on the east. SMH.
Anyways, super excited for this year. Seems like we are abotu to take step forward with the offense which is exciting when paired with this D. Lets go!
|06/07/2018 - 12:10pm||Its Lesigh that when PSU was…||
Its Lesigh that when PSU was down M couldn't really kick them into their grave. I mean would've been nice if we dominated them so much that no one from Pennsylvania/East coast let alone Michigan would think of committing there.
Oh well. Will have to beat the crap out of them this year.
Bring on field goal franklin.
|06/01/2018 - 2:55pm||serious? Ok. You just proved||
serious? Ok. You just proved he is better. I guess you just care about win loss without looking at context.
|06/01/2018 - 2:54pm||Cool. Lebron has higher FGP,||
Cool. Lebron has higher FGP, higher assist, higher 3 pt %, and higher rebounds. Oh and on absolute numbers he has higher # of points etc, because he is playing more which is testament to how durable he is.
There you go. Enjoy. Think on that.
Eyetest passes as well. 50+ points and still lost. Shitty team. MJ had better team and he wasn't playing against GSW.
Not sure how people are saying MJ was better. How? Cuz he won with better cast? I guess I'll wait for Lebron to go to Houston win and shut them up? while Cavs tank like a rock.
|06/01/2018 - 1:00pm||You pretended to do that, I||
You pretended to do that, I didn't. I stated numbers, and when those were better then MJ groupies start talking about defenses and number of championships he won with a better team against easier competition. Objective context was taken out.
So i'll continue.
How old is lebron? How many stars is he playing with? Whos really a starter on championship level team on cavaliers? At 33 why the hell is he exerting so much energy to take cavaliers through a meat grinder? Why do this? Why risk injury literally carrying this motley crew ? He is dropping 40+ so many games, did MJ do that?
This also answers your how is that different than KD chickening out. Lets see if he toils like Lebron did before and after going to Miami. He won't. Its not in his nature: how can you expect to silicone valley investor to do that. KD is garbage in my book.
|06/01/2018 - 11:47am||Can you quantify that ? If||
Can you quantify that ? If not I am going to go by numbers. Lebron has better numbers. Done.
Here I'll do the same:
Lebron plays on shittier team. Infact the worst playoff team. Take him off and see what happens to Cavs. See arguments by others above re: supporting cast of MJ and less historic teams (vs GSW) he played against.
|06/01/2018 - 1:32am||Cool. Strong comeback.
Cool. Strong comeback.
I don't need to watch. I see their numbers. I also looked back at teams they played on.
Feelings ball takes are dumb. Back it with numbers not nostalgia. Jordan had good players, not street trash Lebron is playing with and dropping 40-50 on the daily in these playoffs.
|06/01/2018 - 1:09am||Totally agree. Jordan fawning||
Totally agree. Jordan fawning is dumb.
|06/01/2018 - 1:04am||He is better. Didn't see MJ||
He is better. Didn't see MJ live to get all the nostalgia.
I guess he should shoot 5/19 like MJ did in game 6 of 1996 finals instead of 19/32. As Dantonio would say; Where is the threat? (or "killer" instinct). Lebron take lessons you scrub.
And MJ doesn't make playoffs with this Cavs team.
|06/01/2018 - 12:56am||I was 3 when Jordan was doing||
I was 3 when Jordan was doing whatever you are saying. Didn't process.
I can process numbers however, and am data driven. Lebron threw down his 20482934208, 50 point game. like it was nothing. Also his numbers are better than Jordan. Also he is playing against an offensive juggernaut.
Not arguing better or worse. I just see history in the making. Thankful that I can watch lebron. May not hit a player like him in a while.
|06/01/2018 - 12:55am||Truth.||
|06/01/2018 - 12:27am||I agree||
I don't like dynasty. Especially when a good team KNOWS they are good and act like it aint nothing (see S Kerr saying we are totally fine and the best like game 7 against houston which they won on historic sh!t shooting by Hosuton...really? You are non-chalant about that cuz you are GSW?)
And for that, for everything that is good and fair (like that has ever worked for M), Lebron should go to Houston.
