06/30/2013 - 6:20am I totally agree with you.

Dave Brandon definitely has a Lowest Common Denominator marketing philosophy.

05/30/2013 - 5:17am I live in fear

awaiting the next stray dogs and cats that get tacked on to this conference.

11/20/2012 - 2:38pm I guess now we're just taking

any stray dog or cat that wanders by.

05/17/2012 - 8:29am I hope our new buffoonish mascot

will also be wearing the uniform every week.  That would be cool.

03/22/2012 - 3:40pm The Plaza Tavern

If you like relaxed dive bars, check out The Plaza Tavern at 319 N. Henry Street and have a Plazaburger.  As I recall, it's off State Street towards the Capitol.

02/06/2011 - 11:05am Well, I guess RR

can take solace in the fact that he is now a real "Michican Man" because he is a former coach.  As I understand it, all former coaches -  and assistant coaches - are Michigan Men.  Maybe someday he can be re-hired because he now has the credentials that he didn't have when he was the actual coach.

01/20/2011 - 5:43am Wolfman,

I think your greatest fear is also the most likely scenario.

01/19/2011 - 8:24am Dear wesq,

Your moral superiority is duly noted.  Now you better hurry along to your Women's Studies class.

01/17/2011 - 9:07am Ironically, RR

is a "Michigan Man" now because he is now a former coach - just like Brady Hoke.  Now he could get hired and there'd be no problem.

01/16/2011 - 7:19am Big name doubtful

Michigan is not going to be able to get a big name DC because a big name DC would want to be the head coach himself and would not work for a head coach who has yet to distinguish himself.

01/13/2011 - 8:23am In a few years,

with a little luck, we'll be able to consistently produce 9 - 3 teams.  Undefeated?  Doubt it.  But 9 -3 is achievable and 10 - 2 in a good year.  That's pretty good, right?  We still have a huge stadium and cool helmets, but it's gonna be a long time before anyone is afraid to walk into Michigan Stadium to play us.

01/04/2011 - 1:43pm That's the funniest thing I've seen in a while.

That is very funny.

12/11/2010 - 6:31am If the guys could win this

If the guys could win this one, it would move everything forward by tons.  The Silver Football thing for Denard is a big deal.   The Trib does not have a Michigan bias.

12/02/2010 - 6:07am Bottom line

The reason why we have no direction in our football program is because we do not know which idea will win: Absolute Speed (RR)  vs  Strength (JH).  DB is trying see which will win.

11/04/2010 - 3:27pm The rest of the Big 10

The rest of the Big 10 schools could beat us every game from here to eternity and I still wouldn't trade my UM degree for one of theirs.

10/31/2010 - 9:25am I simply cannot believe that

I simply cannot believe that we lost this game.  I just can't believeit.

10/27/2010 - 1:48pm This team is getting better,

This team is getting better, even throught the losses.  They're getting tighter (I mean, more together) and more determined.  These guys aren't gonna stop.  RR, the coaches, and especially the players are building something good.  These guys are becoming a force.  Slowly but surely.

10/27/2010 - 5:49am Not if it's a home and home. 

Not if it's a home and home.  I don't want to see us on a blue football field.  It just looks stupid.  It really does.

10/26/2010 - 5:08am You may be right about Jay

You may be right about Jay Cutler.  I live in Chicago and I'm not sure Jay Cutler is ever going to be the same.  Not this season, at least.

10/24/2010 - 8:23am That's exactly right

Whoever can pull the sword from the rock.

10/21/2010 - 1:58pm When I first heard about the

When I first heard about the Alabama game, the first thing I thought was that RR is here through 2012.  No way we're changing coaches.  And that means he's here to stay - which is fine with me.  By 2012, we'll be a match for Alabama.

10/15/2010 - 5:24am There's a lot of people who

There's a lot of people who think that if someone has a Southern/rural/country/whatever accent, then they're not too bright.  You find this a lot at Northern academic institutions, especially high-ranking academic institutions.

10/15/2010 - 4:54am What does your cat think AJ

What does your cat think AJ Jordan will do?  Perhaps she could spell it on your keyboard.

10/14/2010 - 3:49pm These repetitive questions

These repetitive questions are getting really boring.  It's getting to be time for RR to tell these smart-ass, ankle-biters what they can go do with themselves.  He's put up with more than enough.

10/08/2010 - 9:00am Definitely a jab at U.M.

He was definitely commenting on the "simplicity" of the Michigan offense.  As in, "anyone can do it".  Rather immature.  MSU's inferiority complex certainly runs deep.  It has even permeated their coaching staff.

09/21/2010 - 4:16pm Yes

That would be cool.

09/08/2010 - 11:55am (No subject)

09/08/2010 - 11:45am Fine. Go.

If you havn't noticed, we're gonna break this thing.  I've watched this for a long time, and I think we're finally gonna break this thing.  You know what I mean.  We're gonna be really, really good.

09/03/2010 - 8:40am Yeah, you're right.  I'm

Yeah, you're right.  I'm going to retract that.  I'm being too pessimistic.  I'm not in a very good mood this year.

09/03/2010 - 5:15am Washout

Hemingway will be injured all year.  I think he's done.

09/03/2010 - 3:51am The correct answer is defer.

08/26/2010 - 6:36pm Great Analogy

I totally agree with you and Hannibal - this is New Coke, but worse.  The greatest rivalry in college football - gone.

08/26/2010 - 9:30am Absolutely.

08/26/2010 - 4:46am No.

We must just move on from that unhappy chapter.

08/24/2010 - 1:43pm Here's what will happen

I don't know the exact answer to the question, but I do know that the wierdest possible solution is what will ultimately happen.  So try to think of the strangest possible alignment imaginable and you will have your answer.

08/21/2010 - 8:43am The Big 10 gives up the Rose Bowl

and we give up the Muchigan / OSU rivalry (they'll still play, but it will be just another game).  Wow.  It's really hard for me to see that we're better off now.  That's a really heavy price for whatever we got in return.  Now we're just another conference, just like everyone else.

That game was the essence of college football.  No game will ever be as cool as that game was.  And we gave it away for nothing.

08/20/2010 - 12:00pm RR Job Security

I totally agree with you that RR does NOT have to win 8 or 9 games to keep his job.  I know we're going to hear that from the media all season long, but that is flat out NOT the case.  We need to show good progress - yes - but Dave Brandon does not want to part with RR and start over with someone new.  That would be bad management, and I don't think that's in his DNA.

The only thing that could endanger RR is an ugly, complete collapse.  I doubt that's going to happen.  If we show progress, RR is just fine.

08/18/2010 - 10:03am Our Backs Against the Wall

We need to beat UConn.  Troy is a huge blow, but we still need to beat UConn.  We must figure out what we need to do, then do it.  We still have enough talent.  We have the character.  We must pound UConn into the ground.

08/15/2010 - 12:53pm Here's your friend's "rationale"

Your friend thinks that our pass defense will be so bad that we won't be able to stop an average-or-above team at all.  I'm sure that's what he thinks.

08/15/2010 - 12:31pm Any odds or straight up?

I'll bet this was straight up, wasn't it?  You shrewd devil.

08/15/2010 - 12:22pm Corncobb is correct

You do need to ignore this person and anything related to Cleveland.

08/14/2010 - 9:13am Children of the 60's

These 1960's people just can't stop reliving the 1960's.  That's because everything was beautiful then and everything sucks now.  Right, 1969 flowerchild?

08/02/2010 - 9:14am I have a dislike/hate

I have a dislike/hate relationship with ESPN.  I don't think I can watch them this year (except for the non-Pam Ward Michigan games, of course).  ESPN is just way too full of bs.
