I turned the channel from football to watch it. In order to rise from its own ashes a phoenix first must burn...Octavia E. Butler

Tiger looks like he appreciates it more the second time.

bronxblue:  McCaffrey has played mostly against backups WITH backup second-string WR's.  I thought Harbaugh should have played him last year but I didn't want to second guess him.  This year, there is no question.  Confidence, pocket aware, accuracy, deceptively fast, football IQ...

Does anyone else have a darker screen?   For some reason FS1 comes dark for me.

He made all the right moves in the offseason.

6.5

I fully expect we will at 8.5 in a year or two. In Harbaug I trust.

Yes, less. 

05/17/2018 - 4:33pm Beiize: Pretty quiet but you

Beiize: Pretty quiet but you go for the diving/snorkeling

Jamaica: I like Negril the best but it's too warm for me. Pretty cool nightlife (Rick's Cafe, any local dive playing reggae).

Cuba: Never been

Dominican Republic: Not for me

 

The best of the rest

Cabo: Pretty good for all-around. Nice town. 

Turks & Caicos: Pretty good for all-around. Pretty beachs.

Aruba: Pretty good for all-around. Good for exploring with a jeep.

St Johns: Pretty good for all-around. Beautiful! Charter a sailboat and see BVI.

I am flying to Cabo (I know it’s sucks) Monday morning. Does anyone know of a bar that I can watch the game? My hotel is one mile from downtown.

Their all playing nervous except for Wagner and Matthews.

Where did you find that she had her own skis? Their still reporting she borrowed Shiffrin skis two hours ago.

02/17/2018 - 6:21am She won on Mikaela Shiffrin’s

She won on Mikaela Shiffrin’s borrowed skis no less. Shiffrin didn’t need them because she decided to skip the race.

07/20/2017 - 9:50pm Best band I ever saw live.

Best band I ever saw live.  And I've seen some goods ones.  U2, Springsteen, J Geils, Clash, Who, Stones,Zeppelin, White Stripes, GNR, Prince, etc., etc.  Nothing touched me quite like the soulness, lyrics and energy of Chester.  Had tickets for August 7 at DTE. Suicide is a disease we need to find a cure for.  Nothing more to say.

Spell-check is a bitch but it is comical sometimes.   

06/18/2017 - 10:22am No.  True story.  I used to

No.  True story.  I used to race sailboats and King Juan had a boat in the same class as us.  He hosted a party after one of the races and as I walked in some guy came over and congratulated me (we won the race that day) and showed me where the bar was and told me he didn't want to see me without a beer in my hand the rest of the night.  Turned out it was the King of Spain.  So no such vibe unless the antichrist is an alcoholic.

06/18/2017 - 9:06am Agreed.  Very emotional

Agreed.  Very emotional experience. The beach is very beautiful and peaceful with the waves lapping the shore and the birds singing.  And then it hits you how many yound men died in that very spot.  It makes you really appreciate that you're an American.

16.  Have you taken a look at Mattison lately?

Met Shaq too.  Also, at the same party my friend got stuck trying to fnd places in Downtown Detroit to park cars of the "Guests" Shaq decided to take back to his hotel room for the after party.

06/15/2017 - 12:32am Partied with Donald Driver

Partied with Donald Driver (outstanding individual, long story), Reggie White, Terrell Owens (quiet guy), Jeremy Piven, Colleen Shannon (if you don't know who she is google her), Brande Roderick (same, invited us back to the Playboy mansion until our drunk friend insulted her, we left him at the party alone in LA with no ride home), Carmella DeCesare (same x10), Jeff Garcia (lucky guy), King of Spain Juan Carlos, Brian McKnight (sang some of his songs at a party of 30 people with a boom box backing track).

Talked to Gordie Howe (just the two of us for 30 minutes at a party, he was my sports hero growing up), Steve Yzerman (nicest guy, after chatting for 5 minutes I kept trying to wrap up the conversation so I didn't overstay my welcome and he kept bringing up things to talk about for another 15 minutes), Brendan Shanahan (kept hitting on my friend while I was talking to Stevie), Keyshawn Johnson (ASSHOLE), Kwame Kilpatrick (and his Detroit police security detail at Super Bowl party in Houston), Dennis Archer, Sarah Michelle Gellar (hotter in person than TV), Freddie Prinze Jr., Seth Green, Sean Penn (his dog kept barking at us on the train ride to Edinburgh Scotland).

Drove Refrigerator Perry to a party as a favor for a friend (he pulled one beer after another from his jacket pockets for a total of 5 in the 30 minute ride to the party).

There's more but thats enough name dropping for one thread.

04/07/2017 - 6:10pm You have obviously never

You have obviously never watched a cheer competition in the last 10 years to still hold that belief.  If you believe gymnastics is a sport than cheer is just a team gymnastics event whereby everyone on the team is competing at the same time.

Kudos to both of you for making me laugh!

02/24/2017 - 1:11pm Sorry Brian but I

Sorry Brian but I wholeheartedly disagree with you.  I don't believe college football players, or for that matter, any college athlete should be paid other than a modest stipend to compensate for the fact that they don't have time to hold down a job while at school because of time contraints placed on them by their sport.

I'm not naive enough to believe that cheating and paying of players will change given the enormous sums of money to be made by successful college football programs or the prestige that comes with it.  Public universities should not be in the business of paying college athletes just because they are making money off their athletes backs.

I believe the answer is to provide another avenue for football players to develop their skills outside of college football programs similar to those offered by baseball and hockey sports.  Those football athletes who value the benefit of guaranteed free tuititon worth over 100k can use that to their advantage.  Those athletes not interested in that route could go the other more risky route where they are payed money to develop their skills without the burden "we ain't come to play school" of attending classes.

01/29/2017 - 2:38pm You think? I only managed to

You think? I only managed to wake in time to watch the fifth but reading through the thread just now is entertaining as hell. Everyone was giving Roger for dead but the old man went for it and proved everyone wrong. Never been a huge Fed fan but he certainly proved some shit out there today. Hard not to call him GOAT after this.

Please stop... Just stop with the Najee posts already.

09/10/2016 - 9:40pm I think the perception that

I think the perception that Harbaugh left Speight in for a long time is really misguided.  We have a QB who has extremely limited experience starting or even playing in college football. He is not an upperclassmen QB who has much experience prior to this year.  He needs some experience leading into some tougher competition.  How is he expected to get this experience other than playing in games?  Also, why no criticism for Meyer leaving Barrett in until the same point of the game?  It's because it really wasn't that unusual.

09/02/2016 - 7:39am My thoughts exactly. Would

My thoughts exactly. Would love to see the Lions cut him and have Baltimore sign him. Perfect symmetry.

08/09/2016 - 12:16pm Anyone claiming Nike quality

Anyone claiming Nike quality is better than Adidas is pure garbage.  I have no affinity for one over another and have worn both over the years.  I happen to like Adidas basketball shorts and warmup pants better than Nike and Nike shirts/jackets better than Adidas but the quality is the same.  My Adidas shorts/pants have lasted years through constant use with absolutely no issues.  Same for Nike shirts/jackets.

Having said all that I probably prefer that we signed with Nike/Jordan over re-signing with Adidas or Under Armour.

When I first looked at it I thought it said "A Brandon Thread". Pretty appropriate if you think about it

I really like Justin Bieber's new album Purpose.  Neg away....

06/15/2016 - 12:10pm This guy is a professional

This guy is a professional journalist?  My 10 year old daughter could write a more coherent article.

06/03/2016 - 6:33pm I think he's sending staffers

I think he's sending staffers to see how Harbaugh manages camps.  You have to understand your enemy before you can defeat your enemy.  Smart thinking but it will be a cold day in hell before Harbaugh sits back and lets someone else steel his thunder at a camp. The way he looks at it MORE COMPETITION!

04/29/2016 - 11:17pm Pretty embarrasing that 10

Pretty embarrasing that 10 Buckeyes are drafted before the first Wolverine.  Hopefully, we can turn that around really soon.

04/14/2016 - 11:30pm It's all about ratings. The

It's all about ratings. The best thing we could do as a fan base is just ignore him and don't let him do the same thing that he accuses Harbaugh of doing...draw attention to his word vomit.

02/25/2016 - 8:39am I played in the Michigan

I played in the Michigan Bantam division state championship game. We lost late in the third period by a fluke goal which went over our goalies head landed on the ice behind him and slid into the net.

Also, I was on the crew of the winning J44 (sailing) world championship held in Newport Rhode Island.

02/12/2016 - 9:10pm Keyshawn is an asshole.  I

Keyshawn is an asshole.  I ran into him at a Super Bowl party a few years back and along with a buddy went up to say hi and have a few words with him.  He was standing alone with his bodyguard talking to no one at the time.  He had his bodyguard push us away with a "Keyshawn doesn't want to talk with you right now".  We relayed the message to my buddy's brother who was the one hosting the party and 30 minutes later his boyguard found us and told us "Keyshawn will talk with you now".  We just laughed and walked away. 

01/19/2016 - 5:56am I agree with you on Notting

I agree with you on Notting Hill. And I'm usually an action movie aficionado. Can I say that I'm also a fan of Top Gun. You didn't used to be embarrassed to admit you like the movie but you know... Tom Cruise... The guy creeps me out now.

01/18/2016 - 6:52pm My favorite band. I saw

My favorite band. I saw Henley in December at the Fox and was surprised how old he looked. I guess I'm not that far behind them.

We do have the benefit of in-state tuition so for me I definitely know where I would like her to go to school (i attended UM as well).  But both of her parents are in a position to allow her to go wherever she chooses.  She did attend cheer camp at Michigan a couple times and really enjoyed herself so I hope when it comes down to it she chooses wisely (i.e. Michigan).

12/18/2015 - 10:04pm My daughter received her

My daughter received her acceptance to Michigan today. She is still considering other schools (Duke, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, John Hopkins) but I am proud of her wherever she decides to go to school.

11/29/2015 - 5:42pm The thing that most worries

The thing that most worries me about Durkin accepting the Maryland job isn't the loss of a first rate OC but the effect it may have on our east coast recruiting.  Durkin is a proven outstanding recruiter and we were doing well with east coast recruiting since Harbaugh took over.

11/03/2015 - 1:52pm I can. I have lived in metro

I can. I have lived in metro Detroit my whole life and have experience the incompetence of the Lions just as long.

11/01/2015 - 10:13am So I see your logic is to

So I see your logic is to save all your cash and put it in the bank.  A lot of good that will do you if you don't live long enough to enjoy it.  The problem is we aren't talking about life and financial security.  We are talking about fielding the best team and winning football games.  Your insurance policy is Bredeson, Swenson, Onwenu, Hamilton and others. I guess it's a bitch we burned Mason Cole's redshirt too. You play your best players.  In most cases that is not true freshman.  When they are your best players you play them. 

11/01/2015 - 7:07am Red shirting is important to

Red shirting is important to teams who don't recruit at the top level and need more time to develop talented players (I.e. MSU in the past). It is way less important to teams that recruit at Michigans level. And there is absolutely no indication that Harbaugh won't be able to recruit with the best of them. Put the best team on the field.

11/01/2015 - 6:51am The Team The Team The Team.

The Team The Team The Team. Who gives a shit about redshirts. The objective is to win games over personal achievements. The fact that many on this board don't understands this baffles me.

10/17/2015 - 7:39pm This is the lowest point ever

This is the lowest point ever of being a Michigan Wolverine. I'm 53 years old.

10/12/2015 - 12:22pm I believe it if Jabrill

I believe it if Jabrill admitted to it but then why was Jabrill closing in on Jehu at the end of the run?  I must have watched the replay 10 times and loved the block that Jabril set as well.

10/05/2015 - 1:40pm Am I the only one who is

Am I the only one who is getting pretty annoyed with all the discussion on this board regarding rankings? I only care about wins and losses. The rankings will take care of itself.

09/27/2015 - 10:20am I totally agree with that

I totally agree with that perspective. How would we be doing if all we had was Morris to throw in there this year? Considering Harbaugh believes he is our best QB by far (who is going to doubt him) we could be a lot more disappointed.

09/21/2015 - 1:50pm Forget the watch. Did you

Forget the watch. Did you check out the specs that Harbaugh had on? Maybe Im oblivious to things like that but it is the first time I've noticed him wearing reading glasses to see the playlist.
