fyi, if u want to argue the validity a conspiracy, never point to a proven quack for support. I've read her book and it's hot garbage. (I'm a licensed P.E./S.E. in several states) In this case, simply point people to a video of the building 7 collapse and it's clear something shady and unreported went down that day.

12/31/2015 - 9:41am Just wondering

Donnal clearly has skill, but seems to have lacked playing with a chip on his shoulder until yesterday.  I've wondered why we havent seen a body transformation with him.  He's been in the program 3 full years and doesnt seem to have improved his body like many of the other players.  3 years in, he should have put 20 lbs of muscle on his frame....that extra power and explosiveness could have really paid dividends.  I wonder if Beilein wanted him to stay with his current body type or if its a lack of effort in the weight room?

10/08/2014 - 11:27pm Call me crazy, but I could

Call me crazy, but I could see LSU looking for someone new.  I dont think they'll be too tolerant of 41-7 blow outs and I've never understood the hype around Les.  Thats a team with tons of talent that tends to under achieve most years.  Watching the Wisconsin game earlier this year was exhibit A: a totally superior team talent wise that should have lost to one-dimensional Wisconsin team.  My fear is that LSU will be ready for him to leave when we come calling and they thank us for the offer...

09/07/2014 - 12:07am I've never been sold that Les

I've never been sold that Les is that great of a coach either.  He almost lost to Wisconsin who has no qb and the talent at lsu is ridiculuous

I'm liking the bald look.  I wouldnt wish it upon denard though.

08/09/2011 - 11:11am I hope you're right.  All of

I hope you're right.  All of tosu fans here in Columbus think he's coming to tosu without a doubt.  They cant get this season over fast enough so that he can take the reigns. There are rumors flying around everywhere here about him buying a house in Columbus.  I dont believe that he'll come for the reasons you mentioned and I could see PSU as the logical destination if he truely desires coaching again.

Great to see a glennie reference...I have a lot of family in the Glennie area.  Pizza is pretty good at the tavern as well...

08/09/2011 - 10:36am Columbus area

I'm living in Columbus now...it sucks.  Anybody know of a UM friendly bar to catch the games at? The google map only shows Dave and Busters and I'm hoping that there is another venue to catch the games with some UM fans.

08/09/2011 - 10:27am Confused about my situation...

I moved to Columbus with my fiance for work this winter....about the time that all the scandals came out.  You brought luck to Alabama.  So did I bring good luck to Ohio or did I bring bad luck...?  I'm inclined to think that I brought good luck to UM...but I need to be sure or I wont be able to move back to Michigan!

08/08/2011 - 11:05am Related Question

Recently relocated to Columbus....I know, it blows....but love is a bitch and this is where my fiance lives/works!  We have boycotted cable/direct tv and bottom line is I dont want to buck up for it.  I prefer watching games at UM bars will fellow fans anyways.  Does anyone know of a UM bar in the Columbus area?  Any help/info would be greatly appreciated!

*Would have posted new thread about this, but I dont have enough points.*

08/08/2011 - 9:00am When I played 5th-8th grade

When I played 5th-8th grade football, our games were always on saturday afternoons.  My mom and dad came to every game.  I was a UM super fan at an early age so missing the UM games bothered me as much as it did my father (who has been a life long fan) and my mother (a UM grad).  This gave my family a special bonding opportunity and a saturday ritual during those years....  We would record each game on the vcr and when we got home from my colt league games, we would sit down and watch the UM game as a family.  We accomplished two things here: 1. My family attended all my games, something I'll never forget. 2. We built anticipation all day for the afternoon of watching UM games together as a family over a bowl of hot nachos, also something I will never forget.

Cash in on this opportunity.  Enjoy your sons soccer games and then bring him into the fold as a UM superfan and enjoy the football games together as well.

07/19/2011 - 8:52am Opposing teams

have a crew of grad-assistants that break down film like this already.  After my playing days, myself and a few other GA's would be up all night sunday breaking down tendancies and packaging film for the coaches to use on Monday....and this was at the DII level.  I'm sure they have a refined system at the DI level

05/02/2011 - 9:50am not enough data to get any

not enough data to get any real trends....it would need to include position breakdowns.  RR had to take a huge number of players at the skilled positions, more than the typical amount per class.  My gut tells me that RR players will be slightly smaller, but not by the huge amount this data shows.

What happened at ND was a tragic accident and I cant imagine the pain that the family of that young man has gone through.  We have no way of knowing that some deal has been cut behind closed doors to keep the family quiet.  Could it simply be that the family is accepting the situation for what it is...a tragic accident that was preventable.  How does destroying the lives of ND staff by firing everyone who could have been responsible make the situation any better?  Does making accusations about shady closed door deals without a shred of evidence make the situation any better?  The best course of action is to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again by educating everyone at ND (and nationwide for that matter) to the risks associated with the work and by putting safety procedures in place to prevent such occurances.  That seems to be the course ND is following.

04/07/2011 - 12:22am I like the way things are

I like the way things are shaping up....denard and gardner ripping it up for a few years before making the transition back to elite pro-style qbs of the past.  we'll be back to the brady/gerbac/henne/griese/hensen style nfl qb producing train

As much as I hate them...you cant knock their out of conference scheduling...they consistantly have one great opponent

04/07/2011 - 12:07am He looks raw in his film, but

He looks raw in his film, but seems to have the frame to become a great big ten TE.  His film is focused mainly as a reciever, I'd like to see what he can do as a run blocker...if he keeps his pads low etc...  With some coaching, I'm sure he could be a great weapon.  It seems as though our recruiting is gaining some momentum...lets keep our fingers crossed!

03/03/2011 - 10:01am good info...Hoke knows what

good info...Hoke knows what he is doing...I like the similarities to Martin

Albert Kahn's firm also designed the majority of the big three auto plants in MI and OH...these are not great photo opps, but an interesting fact none the less

02/26/2011 - 6:14pm in good shape

need to make any free throws we get here on out

10/22/2010 - 3:47pm OP is not suggesting a scheme

OP is not suggesting a scheme change, he's suggesting new wrinkles and making an already leathal offense more leathal.  I like where his head is...

10/13/2010 - 11:36pm Not usually one for rah rah

Not usually one for rah rah speeches and I tend to think that the press makes a huge deal over things like post game speeches...but I like where your head is... To me it means that Denard is a competitor and is ready to start taking on the leadership role...this is a great thing

Point taken, but I'm pretty sure we would all be pleased if UM scheduled CO for a home non conference game

08/10/2010 - 10:48pm I share the optimism

I believe the defense will make strides similar to the strides taken by the offense last year.  Another year in the system and some young talent that was recruited to play the system should pay dividends.

08/03/2010 - 12:56pm For a team that relies so

For a team that relies so heavily on the spread option, it concerns me that a qb would not understand the importance of physical training.  A year of treatment for a banged up shoulder should have taught him that.  I dont know how serious the work ethic issue is, but chances are that if a team leader is bringing it up in a big ten presser...then it actually is a serious issue.  Lets hope he takes comments like that as a challenge and steps up to prove everyone wrong.

07/07/2010 - 11:10pm On days when we're not

On days when we're not playing Iowa, they have become my second favorite team.  This is perfect.  Could anyone imagine the Michigan news stations putting something like this together to support UofM?

agreed...they remind me of Michigan...they're just not as successful. They win in traditional fashion, have coaches with class and seem to have great 'student' athletes.

04/26/2010 - 11:22pm I personally think we could

I personally think we could have used better strategy a few years ago...The NFL thought our speed was just fine.

Poor english, but good point(s). Our athletes were always high quality under LC.

nothing we can do now except drink and do nice things for little old ladies...anything to get some positive karma flowing our way.

God I hope spring ball shows some improvement and gives us some hope..

My only complaint is hearing pam ward's voice...I almost stabbed my ear drums.

Other than that...good video...ready for the spring game.

Is our society really at a point where there is such a thing as "sex addiction"....come on!? I understand there are temptations for superstars, but seriously!

I'm an addict too...I guess I have a problem...
