09/11/2014 - 10:03pm National anthem

Did anyone else notice that at the conclusion of the national anthem, you could see the words on the jumbotron say "home of the brave?" With a question mark!Very odd.

09/03/2014 - 1:28pm Well it will be interesting

Well it will be interesting to see the ratings if Direct TV and NBC don't reach an agreement, as Direct Tv has over 20 million subscribers. These contract disputes are fairly common but with Sunday Night Football and Domer nation blacked out, I imagine it will be back on Direct TV within two weeks. Gonna have to find a bar or a friends house without Direct TV.

 

EDIT: Apperently this only affects Raycom Media networks - which is what i have in SC - so that's only like 50 stations. Also, thanks to some fact digging, college football and NFL won't be affected. I can step off the ledge now.

04/14/2014 - 10:54pm Cornell has great size, speed

Cornell has great size, speed and length, but i don't recall seeing a highlight tape from a five star high school product, much less the #1 overall, with so many arm tackles. He definitly has exceptional speed and a motor which you cannot teach. But appears he could add some weight. Reminds me of Mario Ojemdia's highlight tape. I'm not saying he isn't going to be a stud, but i'm guessing he drops in the rankings at some point.

03/16/2014 - 9:29pm Has anyone else had issues

Has anyone else had issues with the Quicken Loans Bracket? I signed up, submitted my phone number, they texted me back confirmation, then they sent an email confirmation. I clicked it and now it says my phone number is already submitted but i can play for bragging rights.

I ain't trying to play for no bragging rights.

03/16/2014 - 9:28pm Opps, wrong thread. umm.. but

Opps, wrong thread. umm.. but yes. that i hope we get to play Louisville.

11/10/2013 - 4:28pm The O-line really wasn't all

The O-line really wasn't all that bad. Borges didn't give Garner a chance. We ran Max protect, sending two recievers out wayyyy to many times. When the routes were covered up, Devin had nowhere to go.

We all knew the blitz was coming and instead of taking the offensive and maybe running some short routes, slants, screens, we played right into their hands. I put this squarly on Borges and his lack of making adjustments.

09/25/2013 - 9:33pm last season. got it

oops

08/22/2013 - 10:36pm OT- Hell Week

I might not have enough points to create a topic but did anyody see ESPN's Hell Week High School Special? I DVR'ed it tonight but apperently it wasn't on ESPN 2 as advertised.

Did it play on another ESPN channel?

07/12/2013 - 11:04pm Question

Where can i find the blue Michigan outerwear old school Addias zipup with the throwback M? i don't see it on the mden website.

06/17/2013 - 10:06pm My favorite Michigan

My favorite Michigan non-revenue sport to watch is the wrestling team.  The reason is simply because majority of the people that go to the matches are extremely familiar with the sport, how it's scored and the work ethic behind the scenes. If you've never wrestled or watched family wrestle, you probably haven't been to more than one or two matches in your life.

It is the most grueling yet rewarding sport you can partake in. You can sense the wrestlers feeding off of the crowd during the matches. Cliff Keen Arena is alright, but Iowa's Carver Hawkee Arena is like Disney World for wrestling advocates.

Thank you! Awesome.

02/12/2013 - 10:43pm Need to vent

From the coach to the players... this team did not show up tonight. You can blame the refs, crowd, coaches, lack of of inside presence we feature on either end of the court.... This team NO SHOWED tonight. i do not expect this to happen again.

02/05/2013 - 7:48pm Actually, Farmington Hills

Actually, Farmington Hills Harrison used to be a prison before it was turned into a school.

01/28/2013 - 3:31pm I don't see 17 better players

I don't see 17 better players than Trey Burke coming out of college or overseas. It's a crime if he doesn't go top ten IMO. The Bucks are a damn good fit for him though. I see him as a Brenndon Jennings type of player in the NBA. 

01/06/2013 - 8:29pm MGOBLACKOUT.
The site was

MGOBLACKOUT.

The site was down for about two hours. It came back for a few minutes and then i got a Drupal, site maintenance notice.

Looks like we are back now! Thank goodness.

12/12/2012 - 9:24am Marquis Little will be at

Marquis Little will be at Rutgers this weekend and Temple soon after, according to BC's Scout Homepage. So i doubt its him.

12/04/2012 - 7:53pm I'd take the Krewe or the

I'd take the Krewe or the Brass over the Pelicans. The Pelicans nickname just doesn't fit like the other two.

12/01/2012 - 3:48pm 11. What is your preference

11. What is your preference on a B1G Basketball Tourney? (Every team qualifies, or 12 of 14 teams qualify.)

I voted for everybody because you can essentially have a border line big ten team that needs one or two wins to sneak into the tournyey. This would give them a better shot since they would most liekly have an easier matchup than with 12 teams. The more B1G teams, the better.

11/25/2012 - 9:21pm Not scared to play anybody.

Not scared to play anybody. This Michigan team is talented and much better now than week 1. We would give the Aggies all they could handle.

4 losses this year to teams that have lost a total of 3 games... To much panic on these boards.

11/21/2012 - 10:21am Michigan Wins

Michigan 23 - Ohio 21

11/18/2012 - 7:49pm I love when people get

I love when people get butthurt about being downvoted (note, it wasnt me). But for real... it's the internet. Who cares. I barely post on here but as of late, all these people are whining and bitching like a bunch of kids in a world of warcraft forum. Just Stop It.

On a more related note. I had a college coach use similar tactics as Kill. In fact, this particular coach i'm reffering to is still coaching because he win's (not a Michigan coach, the sport was not football either). I'd be corfortable saying that 90% of the athletes on the team do not like this indivdual. He has numerous confrontations with his players and their parents every year. If you were not a starter or a very servicable backup, the chances of you playing all 4-5 years there slim to none. Even the kids that start for him disliked him.

The only reason he is still coaching and winning is because he is able to get the absolute BEST out of his starters by playing headgames, manipulation and installing fear in his players. This theory of coaching still works for some people. I see it less with younger coaches these days but it is still happening.

I don't blame A.J for wanting out but he went a little over board. This happens a lot more than he thinks.

 

11/16/2012 - 10:38pm I've watched the Brock Mealer

I've watched the Brock Mealer video like 5 times today and im not sure im going to be stable for intro's tomorrow. This class really tugs at my heart.

11/15/2012 - 8:51pm Not to take anything away

Not to take anything away from are secondary because they have done a tremendous job but lack of quality QB play in the Big Ten is a large reason. Look at these B1G numbers.

11/14/2012 - 9:56am I wish for the day when

I wish for the day when wearing throwback uniforms are cool again.... and not newly designed throwbacks.... no. Go into the storage shed and pull out the 1991 uniforms. No piping or anything like that. Lose the elastic in the sleeves and give them that old school look.

11/08/2012 - 9:28pm Michigan 78 - Slippery Rock 58

Not sure why everybody is saying Slippery Rock is one of the top teams in D2. They are picked to finish second in their division and at least 3rd or fourth in their conference. They aren't receiving votes in the top 25. LINK

Aside from that, Michigan rolls by 20.

Dude, what's so bad about Savannah? Open container laws in the downtown area. Ton's of history. Great downtown. warm weather (altough hot and humid as hell)... beaches. Many good times in Savannah.

04/08/2012 - 9:39am DETROIT

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/the_bonus/01/07/detroit/i…

The Courage of Detroit - by Mitch Albom. Without a doubt, the greatest article ever written about Michigan and the city of Detroit. Hit's the nail on the head.

 

A couple great quotes from the article.

"It's not that we watch more, or pay more, or cheer louder than other cities. But I will bet you my last dollar that, when it comes to sports, nobody cares as much as Detroit cares."

"People in Detroit can still tell you where they were when they heard about that limo smashing into a tree in suburban Birmingham six days after the Cup win of '97, forever changing the lives of Vladimir Konstantinov, Slava Fetisov and Sergei Mnatsakanov. Vigils were held outside the hospital.

Remember, these were two hockey players and a masseur, Russians to boot; none of them did much talking in English. Didn't matter. They were ours, and they were wounded. It felt as if there was no other news for weeks in Detroit. "You hear anything?" people would say. "Any updates?"

 

"Enough. We're not gum on the bottom of America's shoe. We're not grime to be wiped off with a towel. Detroit and Michigan are part of the backbone of this country, the manufacturing spine, the heart of the middle class -- heck, we invented the middle class, we invented the idea that a factory worker can put in 40 hours a week and actually buy a house and send a kid to college. What? You have a problem with that? You think only lawyers and hedge-fund kings deserve to live decently?"

"Maybe because when our kids finish college and take that first job in some sexy faraway city and a year later we see them back home and we ask what happened, they say, "I missed my friends and family." And we nod and say we understand."

03/23/2012 - 2:14pm damn

I'm moving from NC to SC next week. a little late but better than never!

03/14/2012 - 12:23pm opps i forgot he will

opps i forgot he will probably have to sit out a year. but still, in two years they would have McCallum, Zeigler, and Juwan Howard Jr.

03/14/2012 - 12:20pm Trey will end up at U of D.

Trey will end up at U of D. That team already has like 3 transfers from CMU. That team might be scary good next season.

02/22/2012 - 10:34pm Wolverinebandit - is that you

Wolverinebandit - is that you T.C? Just come on to talk up the book? wouldn't surprise me.

02/22/2012 - 7:37pm CC Vs. Brother Rice was

CC Vs. Brother Rice was always a good one in any sport.

02/22/2012 - 7:28pm Alright, well it sounds like

Alright, well it sounds like the guy im thinking of. Good umpire, however,  he was always trying to be a big shot out there. Like he had something to prove every game. If you disagreed with a call, he let you know how he felt. Even if you weren't trying to show him up, it seemed like he felt offended. Had no problem talking garbage right at players.

I'll never forget, I was coaching an American Legion ball team and he was throwing a hissy fit behind the plate. He was even jawing with the fans. Both teams and fans were irate. So, my pitcher and catcher got together once there was a man on first and they decided to throw a pitch out, but when the catcher jumped up and over, our pitcher hummed in a fastball right down the middle. Hit him right on the hand. He turned around, swore at me (even though i was unaware this was happening) and walked off the field. He just drove off. The base ump had to suit up to finish the game.

Bush league on my players, but the guy had it coming.

02/22/2012 - 4:31pm quick question

Was T.C about 5'4 and umpired in the OAA back in like 2002-2003? If not, anybody know the guy im talking about?

02/12/2012 - 8:25pm Amazing. My girlfriend feels

Amazing. My girlfriend feels left out.

01/20/2012 - 8:54pm HELL YES! Love me some white

HELL YES! Love me some white russians.

01/20/2012 - 8:44pm CHEAP

Being cheap as hell and drinking the rest of the vodka with Diet Mountain Dew. Help!

01/10/2012 - 2:05pm I fell asleep before the 4th

I fell asleep before the 4th quarter. Damn National tv and your 8 P.M East Coast start times. Start the game at 7:05 please. Nobody on the West Coast cares about two SEC Teams anyway.

01/09/2012 - 2:18pm Do you guys know how to post videos to Facebook?

Do you guys know how to post videos to Facebook?

11/24/2011 - 3:16pm Good thing he got ejected.

Good thing he got ejected. After acting like that and costing the team points, i would have been upset if he wasnt benched the rest of the game anyway. Time to grow up Suh. This is National TV. You just claimed that reputation you were trying to avoid.

11/20/2011 - 1:55pm Anybody suprised USC jumped 8

Anybody suprised USC jumped 8 spots? I know beating Oregon on the road was huge but that seems to beat a very significant jump considering the PAC 12 isn't all that good.
