05/17/2018 - 10:33pm If you are

Who I believe you are we ran in different crowds so no worries. And you are right, 2000 was a very long time ago.

05/17/2018 - 9:09pm Welp

I am Eric P

05/17/2018 - 8:39pm But...

I am Eric...shit, do I have two accounts?

05/17/2018 - 4:47pm 2000

For me. So I guess we missed one another.

On that note: I don’t care what anyone else says, I love the River Rat mascot/name. Truly original.

05/17/2018 - 2:34pm Me too

What year did you graduate?

04/16/2018 - 4:38pm Watched a little of the broadcast

Apparently Bol Bol has a brother names Chris Mullin Bol. Announcers said Manute and Chris were very close when they played on the Warriors.

04/02/2018 - 11:56pm This is a joke

Right? A span of 55 years has many iterations of “culture.” Winning a championsip is hard. No matter how many times you get there. Has nothing to do with culture.

03/31/2018 - 10:33pm I’m not sure

Simpson and Abdur-Rahkman could have played any worse as a collective starting backcourt and we won. We may not be as good as Villanova but this team doesn’t subscribe to panic. If our guys play well we definitely have a chance to bring it home.

We have only played one well rounded game this entire tournament so far. Hopefully we are due for another.

03/30/2018 - 7:52pm He has all the tools

To be a high level NFL TE. Just need someone to throw him a few more balls so he can show it. You tend to know your stuff: do you think his production is such that he will forgo his last year of eligibility? I know a 5th year is never a given but that would be quite a development.

03/30/2018 - 10:56am Or...

Second :(

03/30/2018 - 10:55am First

...finally!

Also if Loyola is MVC Purdue without the beast that is Haas I like our chances. Not sure having Wagner helps attact future German talent but if we can get in on some young Dirks and Moes that would be excellent. Keep the five out offense going for years to come.

03/29/2018 - 12:17pm Always appreciated

I never thought Speight was anything more than serviceable but this explains a lot.

03/28/2018 - 12:25pm Whoa

I know this is an MSU based thread but way to bury the lede there. I know you have all the inside info but was it common knowledge that Speight and Pep didn’t get along? If so I definitely missed it.

03/25/2018 - 9:50am Would not stop

Talking...about FSUs length and defensive intensity despite, you know, Michigan having the better defense. That announcing team was, and is, terrible.

03/24/2018 - 10:30am I obviously

Don’t get this but how is it that we don’t possess Montana? Didn’t we just beat them last weekend?

03/22/2018 - 11:36pm Is that

Attorney General Gustavo de Greiff from Narcos in the maize sweatshirt? Michigan’s fanbase is worldwide indeed!

03/20/2018 - 12:51pm Not sure if

He has a younger brother but that indeed is former Michigan Wolverine Mark Donnal on Clemson’s bench.

03/18/2018 - 5:54pm The real shame

Is that Bridges is a legit talent and he never even considered coming to Michigan. Beilein would have really helped him improve his game and he would be lights out as our 4 man. These high school players need to wake the fuck up and start playing for coaches who actually know how to develop players/teams. Oh well.

03/18/2018 - 2:08am The Wagner shoulder job

To the chin is getting a lot of attention but how about Devin Davis going to the line in the last minute after falling down all on his own while rebounding. That was the worst call of all due to the timing. I am not sure the refs favored one team over the other. I just think the refs were completely incompetent. Which is so fucking unacceptable at this stage in the season. No one can convice me there is a worse group of professional officials than those in college basketball. Revolting to watch even in victory.

03/08/2018 - 9:15am PTI came out

In 2001. Back when ESPN was still worth watching. Its success encouraged the network to try and recreate similar content which begat all the horrible programming they have today. It is easily their best show as virtually everything else is an inferior interpretation.

03/07/2018 - 7:30pm Bet Derryck Thornton

Is kicking himself for choosing Duke over Michigan. Now he is a backup at USC. I am positive Beilein would have gotten the best out of him.

03/06/2018 - 2:37pm The ref

Beilein is pointing to is without a doubt the worst ref I watched all year. College basketball refs are probably the worst professional officials in sports and he takes the cake over all others. I really wish the TV commentators would show some balls and point out the phantom calls these clowns make.

Also hilarious that there is a pic of Haarms adjusting his hair. He seems to do that every time something goes wrong.

02/28/2018 - 8:51pm I can’t think

Of any times I have disagreed with any of your points...and I won’t now. Just wanted to say Josh Rosen really blew it by picking UCLA. Sure he will be a first round pick but we could have been a great team with him as our QB and UCLA wasted his talents. If I recall corectly Rosen is good friends with Mora’s daughter so they always had the inside track. Its amazing Mora had such a talent and still got fired.

02/19/2018 - 9:53pm Good God

This is utter nonsense. So much wrong I don’t even have the patience to address it all. Luck was not a consensus star out of high school. The 49ers were horrible before Harbaugh arrived with many of the same players he won with. He rebuilt Alex Smith, and Kaepernick went from pro-bowler under Haraugh to out of the league.

02/15/2018 - 5:26pm You glossed over

The fact that Georgia was the ONLY team to roll along with a backup QB playing. Because they had the best collegiate RB duo of all time behind him. To suggest that is not a big deal is ridiculous.

Not going to nitpick anything else you said but I will add I never liked the Rich Rod hire because it made no sense to go in a completely different direction. Miles was the hire and Martin blew it.

02/15/2018 - 2:32pm Harbaugh

Didn’t throw that pick against OSU, fail to run for the first down against MSU, or drop the punt. Pointing out one (ONE!) example of a third string QB working out seems like a manipulation of the situation. I mentioned this some months back but there was one team in the entire top 25 this year that played the majority of last season with a backup QB (second string, not third) and that was Georgia. Georgia also had the most productive college backfield of all time lined up behind Jake Fromm, who is without a doubt a special talent.

Coaching matters (just looked at the egg the Patriots defensive staff laid against the Eagles) but players also have to make plays. Speight is nothing special. The production Harbaugh got out of him was remarkable but at the end of the day he is just a guy. We were not going to win anything major with him as our QB and that certainly goes the same for his backup, and his backup’s backup.

02/15/2018 - 2:14pm My best friend

Just had his hip replaced (poor guy is only 35) and he was able to do a lot of things prior to the procedure, including jog, it just hurt to do them. 6 weeks later he is feeling like a new man. If Harbaugh does in fact need a replacement it could explain a number of things related to his (outward) enjoyment of life.

02/06/2018 - 11:14am Klay Thompson

Is a great comparison. Their shooting form is nearly identical.

02/05/2018 - 12:24am I was at the game

And I am pretty sure he said stands. The call was wrong though; it was a clear bobble.

01/24/2018 - 12:12am Not going to compare

Deli to deli but anyone who says Zingerman's bread isn't amazing is full of shit.

01/23/2018 - 3:37pm Maize and Blue

Is basically store bought meats and cheeses piled high on store bought bread; just because a sandwich is huge doesn't mean it is any good. If you were at the right gas station and in the mood for a sandwich you could basically create anything Maize and Blue offers.

Zingermans is expensive, for sure. That is because they pay their workers a living wage, make almost everything from scratch, and buy from specialty purveyors when they don't make something in house. There is a reason sandwiches at Zingermans are featured on Oprah.

01/10/2018 - 12:16am I know it won't happen

Because we aren't allowed to have nice things but if Beilein can find a way to bring both Mathews and Wagner back we are going to be fantastic next year.

01/09/2018 - 3:08am Luck

Was not the can't miss prospect you are making him out to be. Harbaugh also turned Alex Smith into a real NFL QB and took the league by storm with his use of Kaepernick. Don't forget Jameis Winston's comments about Harbaugh after a week of mentoring. Harbaugh's track record is proven. Gotta have some actual talent on hand to work with first.

01/09/2018 - 12:52am He's not a sexy pick

But AJ McCarron won back to back titles while throwing 77 TDs and only 15 picks to go with over 9000 yards. Tua may be a great player going forward but the OPs comment was just silly.

01/09/2018 - 12:46am I think

Alabama's performance in the playoff suggests they were the best team regardless of conference standings. Conference titles aren't everything. We curbstomped PSU last year but they won the conference...

01/09/2018 - 12:43am Crowning a guy

Who has played one meaningful half of football the best QB Alabama has ever had seems premature.

01/05/2018 - 8:33am Its a lot of work

But shovel paths in/around your lawn. Makes a huge difference for the dogs.

01/03/2018 - 10:59am I believe

We had the number one offense in the Big Ten last year. This year has sucked major ass but it's not like we were trotting out hot garbage the two years prior.

01/02/2018 - 10:10pm Better shooter?

Not sure if serious but Livers does have more potential as an all around contributor so that is exciting.

01/01/2018 - 10:42pm Fromm

Looks really good for a young QB. Heady and accurate. He also has the best stable of running backs in the country. Michel and Chubb have the all-time combined record for yards in college football and had I believe over 300 yards of offense between them in todays game. Lesser QBs than Fromm could win a lot of games with that run game.

01/01/2018 - 10:37pm Dabo Swinney

Didn't light the world on fire his first 3.5 years at Clemson. Not all rebuilds are the same. We have struggled with continuity in that we have played a different QB every one of Harbaugh's seasons and multilpes QBs during each of those seasons. Changes are needed but so suggest things can only go down from here is ridiculous.

01/01/2018 - 10:27pm The kind

We will be pleased with or the kind that will make us hate our lives just a little bit more?

01/01/2018 - 9:37pm Those are damning comments

But we looked downright competent on offense in the third quarter (until the turnover onslaught began) so I am not sure how much their "knowledge" of what we were running helped them. We gave that game away. I don't think in all my years of watching football I have ever seen a team have 5 turnovers in one half.

01/01/2018 - 9:34pm Pretty sure the punting

Performance alone could have cost us the game. We were giving up loads of yards on punt exchanges. Can't do that shit when your offense is already anemic.

01/01/2018 - 8:57pm Luck wasnt

The greatest QB prospect ever. Harbaugh had a major hand in making him the Andrew Luck we see now. And on a day like today it is easy to forget but we won 10 games the past two years with a 5th year castoff from Iowa, and an Al Borges QB.

01/01/2018 - 7:17pm It wasn't so

Terrible last year as we had the best offense in the Big Ten. This year our qb play has been atrocious and our receivers do not make anything easier. We lost essentially all of our important receivers on offense (everyone focuses on the defensive losses) from last year (Chesson, Darboh, and Butt) as well as a tough runner who was good at blitz pickup (Smith). It is imortant to remember all of this despite the abominatiom that was today's game. Improved QB play, some competentcy at WR, and continued improvements from the TEs and OL and we should see something very different next year.

01/01/2018 - 7:09pm Patterson

Plays like Mayfield. Maybe he really is the answer. I agree with many others that what we are asking our qbs to do is way too much. Maybe as an upperclassman those types of responsibilities are possible but asking young guys to do it seems like a recipe for disaster. Patterson is a mobile guy, maybe that changes some things for the better.

01/01/2018 - 6:59pm I see you are choosing

To ignore his results at Stanford, and San Diego. I agree our schemes seem too complicated for some of these kids. Doesn't mean he can't coach college players. He needs to make some adjustments, like he did with his Colin Kaepernick led offense.

12/21/2017 - 2:48pm Too early to tell

Obviously, but most of his throws were crossing and drag routes across the field. It was maddening watching it work again and again but not sure how much we learned about what he can do in terms of throwing the ball around the yard.

12/15/2017 - 12:31pm Delano Hill

As well, if I am not mistaken.
