Where'd you hear this?

Sounds like an undercover spartan bro

10/20/2018 - 11:09am Never made any game-changers…

Never made any game-changers is my concern. 

 

With a defense this bad, we're gonna need him to bail us out from time to time. 

10/19/2018 - 12:30pm Ugh.

Ugh.

Wow, no wonder Jeff George couldn't crack our top 6. 

10/18/2018 - 12:46pm Wow, you can tell people are…

Wow, you can tell people are tense. Usually the comments after this is "LOL, I love this site", "best feature", "why don't you do this every week?" blah blah blah. 

 

Today it's, yeah but iowa and msu are like actually good tho....

10/18/2018 - 12:10pm in 2015 we had THREE…

in 2015 we had THREE CONSECUTIVE SHUTOUTS. The officials negated that effect and then all the bounces STILL went msu's way. I literally can't stand this game each year. It's a full week of just trembling and sweat. 

 

I can't wait until it's over. Also, how SO MANY PEOPLE ON HERE can still just say, "oh we'll pound them", tells me they have taken Gob Bluth's infamous "Forget-Me-Now"s. Literally even in 2016 when they went three-and-fucking-nine, they still made it a 6 point game with one second left. YES, the refs stopped calling holding and yes we dominated the entire game, but the fact that they kept it so close, regardless of circumstance (if they had won, it wouldn't have mattered that the refs stopped calling garbage-time penalties), is why I just can't not worry. 

 

Wake me up when it's over.

10/18/2018 - 11:58am Speaking of that, do we know…

Speaking of that, do we know who the refs are, yet? 

 

If it's O'Neill or that other crew that HATES us/Harbaugh, I'm gonna lose my damn mind. 

10/18/2018 - 11:57am Watch your tongue. Those are…

Watch your tongue. Those are 5-stars when they play M. The blue border means "blue chip"

10/18/2018 - 9:52am While your other points may…

While your other points may be valid, I really despise the "both teams have to play in the same weather" commentary. Weather conditions can certainly change how the game is played. Also, weather is a neutralizer....whereas I think Michigan is a far better team if we're playing in perfect conditions, once the weather comes in it allows an overmatched team to have more opportunities for weird things to happen. Also don't forget this game is on grass, not turf.

10/16/2018 - 3:24pm Unless it's the ACTUAL cfp…

Unless it's the ACTUAL cfp. In fact, kinda hoping msu repeats THAT performance this week. 

10/16/2018 - 10:02am But more importantly, who…

But more importantly, who are the refs??

10/15/2018 - 11:26am They said during the game…

They said during the game that Hornibrook (lol, how is that a last name?) said that his 2016 start at the Big House was the worst of his life, Pop Warner and everything included. I wonder if he would say now that that was the second worst start of his life...

10/14/2018 - 4:34pm THE TRANSITIVE PROPERTY DOES…

THE TRANSITIVE PROPERTY DOES NOT APPLY IN FOOTBALL

10/14/2018 - 4:33pm State wants to beat us?? Hm…

State wants to beat us?? Hm. I thought Mork's 2nd favorite team was Michigan. At least he's graceful and full of decorum when speaking about us. Classy lad, that. 

10/14/2018 - 4:31pm Yeah. Duh. 

 

They cheer…

Yeah. Duh. 

 

They cheer for a school full of disgrace and cover-ups and a program that does plenty of bullshit, too. Their current president may be worse than the last...

They are the scum of the Earth and the fact that they can still feel "pride" around that horrific place is utter BS. They have no souls and they make me so fucking sick. 

 

 

10/14/2018 - 3:05pm You mean the garbage time…

You mean the garbage time points? 

 

My only concern with the defense is the long drives they sometimes give up in the first half. 

Garbage time points with backups in do not bother me. 

10/13/2018 - 12:50pm Trust me Rufus, whiskey is…

Trust me Rufus, whiskey is very much a thing. Almost too real...

10/10/2018 - 9:12am These are the laziest memes…

These are the laziest memes I've ever seen.

Or young enough to know it but didn't bother watching....

Between a huge win over Nebraska, Philly's new mascot Gritty and MurderWolv, this has been a great week

I was in Europe for the ND game and r/cfbstreams worked beautifully the whole time (figures, right?)

You can adblock on Chrome too, but I don't adblock this site for REASONS

Ironic, because he is apparently good at following #5.  (And #3)

09/06/2018 - 1:29pm No....we should have played…

No....we should have played Utah State or Oregon State or some shithole school you've never heard of until they show up in Madison. 

09/04/2018 - 12:01pm Nice charity choice. I'll…

Nice charity choice. I'll take that bet along with you. 

08/23/2018 - 3:08pm From the Star-Tribune:

 

From the Star-Tribune:

 

Robert Maynard Hutchins saw no other way. Appalled by rampant commercialism and corruption in college football, the University of Chicago president abolished the sport at his school in 1939, declaring it an “infernal nuisance’’ unsuited to an elite academic institution. 

I mean I don't want Michigan Football to go away forever but this guy was WOKE AF

08/22/2018 - 1:54pm Wow.

 

Quit drinking and…

Wow.

 

Quit drinking and go to bed.

08/20/2018 - 1:36pm FWIW my friend Kevin from…

FWIW my friend Kevin from Ann Arbor was there and he told me the same thing. 

 

(He's a big time counterstrike player, too)

 

Except for real. 

08/20/2018 - 12:50pm And a pretty weak schedule…

And a pretty weak schedule. Damn I wish we were in the west. 

08/17/2018 - 7:57am Sorry to hear about your dad…

Sorry to hear about your dad. Mine is still doing ok but I feel like I can notice a difference in him (mobility, hearing, clarity of comments,etc.) between now and a few years ago; thus I have been trying to do all of these types of things with him while he can still enjoy it. 

So yes, please enter me. Thanks for your generosity!

08/03/2018 - 10:30am That's what made Colbert so…

That's what made Colbert so good. It was satire but it was actually believable...especially nowadays

 

08/01/2018 - 1:08am Ok so I'll admit I've only…

Ok so I'll admit I've only heard good things but Jesus Christ, his bias against JH is far too extreme. Mandel acts like a jealous child towards Harbaugh. Having said that, these reviews are even making me consider it.

08/01/2018 - 1:04am Not until they fire that…

Not until they fire that whiny asshole, Mandel. 

07/27/2018 - 10:00am I'll be there. I'm also…

I'll be there. I'm also hunting for a tailgate as well...

 

I was hoping there would be more comments in here besides the requisite soccer-hater posts

07/23/2018 - 4:00pm Why don't you try posting…

Why don't you try posting soccer vids? He'll LOVE that

07/19/2018 - 12:42pm "we don't need you anyway"

"we don't need you anyway"

Fun fact, if you rearrange "Indiana Vassilev" it spells Aston Villa.......

 

 

Ok but it's, like, REALLY close

 

 

07/17/2018 - 11:00am NYRB are a top club in MLS…

NYRB are a top club in MLS and have probably the best academy. 

 

FC Dallas is also known for development and they're one of the stronger sides, as well. 

Otherwise I agree with your comments.

07/16/2018 - 4:30pm Great stuff. With no US in…

Great stuff. With no US in the World Cup I thought we were going to be shutout (clean sheeted?) of solid footy content. Can't wait for the other articles. 

 

Also for those interested, if you go to https://ussoccer.com/rising they have some mini-docs on some of the aforementioned players. They just released the videos today.

07/16/2018 - 12:06pm I had PS Vue for FSD but now…

I had PS Vue for FSD but now that the Wings are utterly un-watchable I'm not even gonna bother this year. I have my dad's FoxSports Go login and will watch on there if I'm willing and able. 

07/16/2018 - 12:04pm #1 picks in the MLS draft…

#1 picks in the MLS draft are irrelevant because that's only one of many ways a player can come to MLS. The best players DO NOT play NCAA soccer. Also, MLS players on designated player contracts can make way more money in MLS than they would in a smaller european league (which is what MLS is on par with). Hence a guy like Fagundez being a lifetime MLSer. I'm absolutely not saying MLS is on par with La Liga, but it is light-years ahead of where it was even just 5 years ago, let alone 10 or 20. As the talent grows, the clubs will get bigger and (hopefully) the league will let the clubs become their own entity. If that happens it will one day be a top league. Again, I know you don't care about that until/unless it happens, and I can totally appreciate that -- I'm just trying to make a point that it's not as "garbage" as some people think it is. Especially if it continues to grow at the same rate it has been (and the league actually, eventually allows teams to operate independently -- this is the thing that worries me the most). 

07/16/2018 - 10:55am Agreed -- too many parents…

Agreed -- too many parents are teaching hockey on grass.

 

I think this problem, to some extent, with resolve itself once the next generation comes through as Millennials and Gen Zs have kids. This group has a much better understanding of the game as we have grown up with it, unlike our parents. 

07/16/2018 - 10:52am This comment tells me you…

This comment tells me you don't actually watch soccer. 

Also, if you're going the CFB vs soccer on TV route, you're saying you'd rather watch Indiana play Northwestern for 4 hours with a commercial every 5 minutes vs soccer where you get to consume the sport, uninterrupted for 45 minutes (plus), with the whole thing over in 2 hours?

To each his own.

 

 

07/16/2018 - 10:48am It IS full contact. The…

It IS full contact. The diving can be eliminated with retroactive fines and suspensions and a clock that stops for injuries. I agree it's irritating as all hell, but when people say soccer is non-contact it's just not even close to accurate. Also, and I'm going off on a tangent here, but I just don't get how anyone can sit there and say they love baseball but they won't watch soccer because it's "boring". That argument shouldn't hold-up as long as people still enjoy baseball. 

07/16/2018 - 10:45am Also, I don't think your MLS…

Also, I don't think your MLS argument holds up. Sure there's better football available, but it's far away. Supporting your local club (if you have one), will pay big dividends to the sport in the future, here (not that you owe anything to soccer; I understand you're exercising your rights as a consumer to watch what you please). By that same token, the EPL owes America nothing, either -- why would they care about the development of soccer in the US? They only care that we consume their product (and we already do).

But what I'm getting at is (I assume) you choose college football over NFL -- thus you're choosing the inferior product (whatever your reasons may be). I watch EPL all the time, but I don't have a "club" per se. I'm literally thousands of miles away and don't feel connected to any particular team. For some, MLS provides that local club -- that connection to the game.  

07/16/2018 - 10:37am EEEEEEEE PL

07/16/2018 - 10:35am I don't think you understand…

I don't think you understand what he's saying. Hockey (while I love it), is EXTREMELY inaccessible. Only first-world countries are any good at the sport. 

When it comes to countries having less money producing good players, that's exactly it. Our poor kids can't afford to play it in this country because it's inaccessible to them. In other countries, the kids are found, signed and PAID by professional clubs when they're little. In this country that's not how it works (with the exception of a few MLS clubs doing good work in their communities). There's also the issue of the NCAA -- obviously kids would be rendered ineligible for college  soccer (not that NCAA helps soccer in this country whatsoever) but parents would probably still be afraid to let their kids get paid a few bucks and miss out on the chance at a scholarship.
