|04/25/2010 - 1:54pm||very good||
It would be great if it happens... I do not here much talk about how this format can be used for national championship implications.
16 team conferences, with 1/4 final battles, semi-finals, then championship game would be interesting... have 8 divisions all conferences with the same format; then you would have 25% participation in a national championship. (if you had the 8 conference winners playoff... this would eliminate alot of the bias with present system...
I just hope Delany and company read some of the stuff printed on this blog.
Something going to happen... too late to back out... if we dont do it, some other conference will...

I do not have the time or ability to do massive research but college football is like the tetonic plates of the earth's surface... constantly changing.
Look at all the bowl games now, wasn't it 1974, where Bo and Woody tied and the Wolverines sat at home because of a contriversial vote. No other place to go.
Blacks in the 60's were just beginning to be allowed to play, with great help by Coach Hayden Frey.
Chuch Ealey, a great Quarter back from the university of Toledo, was relegated to Canadian football in 1971, because the Nfl was not yet ready for black quarter backs...
The tangerine bowl, used to feature the Richmond spyders, and University of Toledo, before changing its name and becoming a big time bowl...
The big ten has a chance to improve its product, go to 16 teams: two divisions, better yet go to 4 divisions with quarter finals... a model for future national championship implications for all conferences.
Dont worry about Florida players, build it and they will come. Have we forgotten what state the last heisman tropy winner came from?
You cant change the weather, but improve what you got...get Nebraska, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh... maybe perceptions change and recruits stay home, and draw more quality from warmer states... General Motors stuck to its old ways and changed in bankruptcy court.

|09/03/2009 - 10:41am||FREE PRESS||
I am not the best on the computer, i dont know how to start a dairy, but im wondering what everybody else is doing about the free press, myself i quit reading them on internet. I know its not much, but why support someone who is trying to hurt you... lot of us(cant speak for everybody), live our lives and follow Michigan as a hobby and enjoy the games on saturday... for me its such a relief, no worries no nothing just the game...I know Brian was taking a poll but im just wondering if their is a conCerted effort to not support them... Yes, lets just worry about the game ahead, BUT would like to know...
Ps... If the free press cared about Michigan they could of presented their story to Martin and Mary Sue to deal with it, instead they tried to sensationalize it...
|09/02/2009 - 5:27pm||RED SWEATER VEST||
Yep, you have to tip your hat to ol' sweater vest himself... as much as he wants to win, he knows it takes two to tangle...
Also he is laying a smoke screen so he does not get attacked also... He's playing defense already, and is smart about it, even if its not needed yet or ever.
|09/02/2009 - 4:20pm||HISTORY LESSON||
Any students of U of M, or alumni, or just anybody, must either know about what happened to Mussolini and his wife near the end of World War II... or you must study up...
Anyways Mussolini and CO. (wife), were hung up by their heels and executed, because the Italian people were more than pissed at Mussolini...
I abhore violence and do not condone such activity but, if a gang formed (complete with the torches and pitch forks as previouly mentioned...( like an old Frankestein, dracula movie): and hunted down Drew Sharp, and Mikey Rosenburg and hung them by their heels > I would not approve of such an activity but I would have a bigger smile than the cheshire cat in the Alice and wonderland movie...
|09/01/2009 - 6:55pm||THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM||
I HOPE ALL THIS HORSE DU-DU MOTIVATES THE HELL OUT OF THE PLAYERS AND COACHES... THAT THEY ALL GET THAT WOLF LIKE KILLER STARE OF BARWIS, AND THEY DONT JUST BEAT TEAMS, BUT RUN THEM OVER LIKE A BULLDOZER. TAKE NO PRISONERS WOLVERINES!
|09/01/2009 - 5:44am||DREW SHARP||
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF SOMEONE CAME TO YOUR HOUSE AND STARTED KICKING YOUR DOG?
I did read Free Press this morning (which I will stop now), Drew sharp is making a call for Coach Rod's head, and said he looked like a beaten man, and the season has not even started...beyond pitiful... Coach Rod is a human being... Drew Sharp is a monster, now I know why lot of you folks dont like him. GO BLUE!
Someone at FREE Press is predicting a 5-7 season, and an opening loss, kinda ties in with the exaggarated over training. Drew Sharp would like nothing more than to see Michigan fail, to see us suffer, than he can brag how he helped oust Coach Rod,,, this has to be a rallying cry for all loyal Wolverines...
|08/31/2009 - 6:21am||PERFECT STORM||
What helped to create this situation was Carr was beginning to slack off a bit at the end of his coaching career ( read go blue michigan wolverine blog... i know, i know, lot of you talk of all this coach Carr integrity, but he did not want to coachhis last year... Carr can be quoted saying that he was hoping Mary Sue (head of um) would ask him if he wanted to coach anymore or something like that... Carr should of "Man-upped", or grew a few or something and just quit, unless sliding into home with one more year of big paychecks was more appealing... the perfect storm is going from cold to hot, a dramatic change at u of m.
I am truly appalled about all the attacks on coach rod...
|08/30/2009 - 12:04pm||hope we get thru this||
WHEN Marice Clarett made his accusations against Ohio state and everybody scoffed at him because his credibility was low... but one sports writer (prominent said it rang true, and was backed up with facts... i also heard inside information, that I believe to be true... Clarett made some poor decisions but he first tried to protect Ohio State, and was considered evasive when questioned. Only when Ohio State abandoned him did he retaliate by sqealing... Ohio state got away with one...
If Michigan gets punished beyond probation, I give a one finger salute to Ohio State, USC, and NCAA.
Spare me neqative points, last time i earned 25 minus, and I did deserve it.
|08/16/2009 - 6:33pm||My apologies to a Mr. Boren||
Perhaps I was a little harsh in my previous comments, you see im from West Virginia and sometimes we dont have our thinking caps on tight.
From now on I will only say positive thoughts:
Like today, I found a dead and smelly cat in my front yard and glad it wasn't you... hope that makes you feel better...G-DAY!
|08/16/2009 - 5:25pm||Boron... are you listening?||
if you get all frustrated over the next 3 weeks or so, maybe you can do something stupid and join your extended family at the Lucas county correctional facility (aka; ex-running back Ohio State?), AND if the two of you happen to be roomies wear protection... std's are nothing to laugh about.
Further more if you really go over the top and do something extraordinary, Charles Manson is starting a new family...
|08/16/2009 - 5:02pm||thanks for feedback on Boren||
Got to buy bigger needles for VooDoo doll i bought when i visited Haiti, i'm not kidding, its big and Fugly like Boron...
Hey Boron, here's to your family values... oink... OINK!
|08/12/2009 - 6:46pm||WELL SPOKEN||
I NEED TO SAY NO MORE, EXCEPT BNAGS MUST BE A CARPENTER - BECAUSE HE HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD.
|08/12/2009 - 7:25am||thank you old blue 74||
WRITTEN LIKE THE OLD PROGRAM DRAGNET...JUST THE FACTS MAAM"
Dont compare Sheridan to other Michigan quarter backs, compare him to Pryor(Ohio State), the penn state quarter back, Juice Williams (fighting illini), now is this what you want, would a 6 and 6 season be a victory?...
Remember Lincoln canned generals till he found a winner, Grant was like a bulldozer...
One poster wrote Sheridan is likeable, is that relevant?
He broke his leg, (actually a very small bone) does that mean he should start?
Hes trying real hard, meaningless if he cannot deliver the goods.
Sense of entitlement? contradictory because Sheridan landed on his rear last year(im a rapper), does that give him rights to do it again? Maybe we should change nick to RUDY
|08/11/2009 - 7:32pm||REDSHIRT SHERIDAN||
SEEMS LIKE ALOT OF FOLKS FORGOT THE PAIN OF LAST YEAR...
Were lucky to have Denard ... use all the weapons you have.
Sheridan = butter knife
|08/11/2009 - 7:08pm||sheridan for president||
Good in practice does not mean good in real game situation... lots of mental issues, just like the stock market you can pretend trade, but when your using real money, then the pressure is on...
Also did not Sheridan impress in pre seasonlast year?
Either this blog or Varsity blue compared Sheridans throwing ability to that of a shot putter, last year?
Coach Rod is being kind and true... the position is open , but soon to close. Sheridan might start to be true to Sheridan but next series will be tates... one disaster season is one too many.
