Favorite assignment so far.  Attacking a place that feels natural to attack.  Love it.  Go Blue!

That game was horrendous.  I had an ice beard by the end.  The sleet was somehow coming upwards directly into my face due to the wind.  Pretty sure Mike Alstott was in that game for Purdue.

05/30/2018 - 12:08pm Tough decision...

He’s a good kid with great athleticism. I’ll miss him as a player, and I think he would be showcased on this years team, but if thinks it’s time to go, you have to respect his decision. As others have said, there are multiple factors like outside family pressure, not enjoying the college experience, or just simply being ready to get out in the work force that may override player development in a particular players mind.

Riley got put on IR before the playoffs (I think) so I am not sure if he counts for the playoff roster.

Discord Username: Dan-O is to Attack Miami (OH).  Never liked Roethlisberger anyways.

01/12/2018 - 6:04pm That still hurts...

Damn, that foul called on the cleanest block I've ever seen still grinds me.  Changed the whole game.

I think the you captured the movie very well here: 

"the movie was somewhat enjoyable but suffering from several significant flaws...questions were not answered and it looks like they won't be, with the addition that the questions that were answered were answered stupidly."  

I'm a huge Star Wars fan, but left feeling frustrated.  Gravity bombers in space and what amounted to a low speed chase waiting for ships to run out of gas were also irritating low points for me.

I just can't do it. I want Izzo out before the second weekend. I'll take a game against Kansas in the regional final over MSU advancing.

03/07/2017 - 4:11pm Interesting stuff...

No question guys like Duncan and MAAR have adjusted how they guard the three point line.  We still get lost of some of those switches (especially DJ and Mo), but overall the defensive change is remarkable.

03/13/2016 - 9:24pm Who pissed in Gottlieb's cornflakes?

Hollis has been very good for State.  I'd hope for the same if our AD was in there.  Flipping to the haterade side of things, apparently its time to resurrect the the: 

Doug Gottlieb... Michigan hating dochebag

thread from a few years back as well.

10/21/2010 - 6:52pm I'm worried...

I got suckered into chaperoning a school trip for my son's seventh grade class this weekend.  The upside is that it will probably be fun.  

The fear started when my wife said  that she and my daughter can't wait for their girls weekend.  She is taking my daughter shopping and for other girly things that I dare not inquire into too deeply.  I'm worried she's going to visit all of the stores your are contemplating, but without the damper my customary grunted response provides.   This could be an expensive weekend.

10/25/2009 - 9:31pm Right on the money...

This post gets at the issue of the "bare cupboard". Lloyd supporters get very huffy when the idea of a dearth of talent is mentioned as part of the explanation for last year's 3-9 and the lack of depth on this year's team. Rich Rod supporters on the other hand refuse to allocate blame to their guy simply because they see a team that lacks depth of talent, especially on defense.

BlueinLansing nails it. We have had an enormous number of busts over the last few recruiting classes and most of these were due to injury or dismissal from the team. I don't blame Carr for the losses of players like Bass and other injury victims. Carr does bear the blame, however, for Jr. and Sr. players who can't beat out freshmen. I think we had some scouting failures in the later years of Carr's tenure.

There are plenty of reasons for our current thinness at many positions, but the key is to make the most out of the opportunities that we have and to recruit the State and nationally to get some depth and avoid the attrition that has plagued us. Hopefully we start to see it next year, but kudos to BlueinLansing for encapsulating the key reason behind our current lack of depth.

09/06/2009 - 1:07am Roh

Not much of the crab stance, but man, what an impact Roh had today. His bull rush success came out of nowhere. All indications were he was spins and speed, too light to move a Division I lineman. Western's line wasn't that small. I guess we'll have some better data after next week, but I'd love to seem him plant that punk Clausen a few times.

Some of my favorite images over the years have been Michigan defensive lineman lording over ND quarterbacks (Crable over a crushed Clausen; Branch over a bulldozed Brady Quinn, etc.) It would be nice to see Graham or Roh take the shine off Weis' hype machine after their win today.

08/16/2009 - 11:03am Suspicions confirmed...

I think this is a phenomena that many Michigan fans have suspected for years, but had no comprehensive proof of other than their own observations. Kudos on a very throrough and informative look at what we all know in the back of our minds...A tie in rivalry with Indiana would help.
