Check him for a new tatoo.
|02/24/2015 - 9:10am||Uncle Urban||
Come on now...aren't we being a little too hard on Uncle Urban. He has integrity oozing from his pores and always has his players best interests and safety in mind. Take Armani Reeves for example...nothing but the best interest of the player. He was so concerned for Armani's welfare that he told him he should quit football AFTER the national championship game. The conversation went like this...
Urban - "Armani...you've been a tremendous asset to the Buckeye program...I'm concerned about your future if you continue to play football"
Armani - "But coach...I just played in the game vs. Oregon and am fine"
Urban - "I know, I know...it's a tough call...I think it would be in your best interest if you discontinue playing instead of risking any further injuries"
Armani - "But coach...I'm..."
Urban - "Player safety is my #1 concern and I think you should quit football. It has nothing to do with the scholarship spots I need to open up for my next recruiting class...I'm concerned with your health and welfare going forward. You've got a long life ahead of you and to take a chance of getting any more debilitating injuries just isn't worth it"
Armani - "Come on coach...really I'm..."
Urban - "I know...it's a sad, sad day for Buckeye nation, but you have served us proud"
Armani - "Coach...I can still..."
Urban - "OK...good talk. Not sure how we'll ever replace you. I think you know where the door is. It's been great having you Armani"
Armani - "Uh...OK"
5 seconds later
Urban - "Luke...Larry...just had another spot open up...go get me another recruit".
Seriously...what a lying piece of crap. Uh...I had no idea one of my coaches was even looking for another job.
|12/08/2014 - 3:16pm||Completely expected after||
Completely expected after losing to NKOTB. Guess they didn't have the right stuff on Saturday.
Seriously...it's only 1 game and the kids will learn from it.
|12/01/2014 - 2:27pm||We are Family!!! That way||
We are Family!!! That way Hokeamania can talk about "his 115 sons".
|12/01/2014 - 2:21pm||It would confirm that||
It would confirm that Michigan is not serious about becoming a national power again and they are happy with being pretty much irrelevant in the landscape of college football.
|11/24/2014 - 10:05am||Please, please, please tell||
Please, please, please tell me that all this BS about "an extradordinary job" and him "being impressed because the coaches know the team isn't where we want it to be" is just that...BS. I'm gettint this sick to my stomach feeling that he really believes what he is spewing out and there is a chance this joker returns for a 5th season. Please tell me I am wrong.
|11/13/2014 - 8:21am||Wow...you mean there used to||
Wow...you mean there used to be excitement around this program? Thanks for the flashbacks...great memories. The only problem is that now I'm even more depressed to see where this program used to be and how far it has fallen to the point where Michigan football is now pretty much irrelevant.
|11/07/2014 - 12:28pm||Maybe you want to find||
Maybe you want to find another team to root for then...we don't need you. I'll be more than happy to walk down to the ticket office and personally take care of that myself.
Have a good life.
|11/07/2014 - 12:17pm||For sure...all they have to||
For sure...all they have to do is look on the field...no improvement (7-5 in 4th year blows) and no player development.
|11/04/2014 - 9:02am||WOW!!! First Northwestern||
WOW!!! First Northwestern AD...now Dartmouth AD? WTF is going on? OK folks...the position is for ATHLETIC DIRECTOR...and I'm going way out on a limb here thnking one of the qualificaitons for the job of ATHLETIC DIRECTOR would be EXPERIENCE RUNNING A SUCCESSFUL BIG TIME COLLEGE ATHLETIC PROGRAM.
Nothing against these fine individuals but come on. How about we not try to play the smartest guy in the room act again like we did with Brady. We all see how well that worked out.
|11/03/2014 - 10:12am||I think you're giving||
I think you're giving Northworstern a bit too much credit. They just got jack hammered by Iowa 48-7...this is a completely winnable game.
|11/03/2014 - 10:10am||Let's just hope it doesn't||
Let's just hope it doesn't come to that? I never root for the team to lose but the thought of bringing him back for another year makes my stomach turn.
|10/28/2014 - 8:50am||Because like it or not he is||
Because like it or not he is still our best chance at winning ball games.
|10/28/2014 - 8:43am||" I'm confident in what we're||
" I'm confident in what we're doing..." Seriously? Come on Brady...5-11 in the last 16 and your confident in what you are doing? WHAT YOU'RE DOING ISN'T WORKING!!!
For as non-informative as these press conferences are, he sure knows how to say the things that really piss people off. At least he is good at that.
|10/27/2014 - 12:30pm||Of course we are smarter than||
Of course we are smarter than everyone else...this is Michigan fergodsakes!
|10/27/2014 - 12:27pm||Not sure what was worse...the||
Not sure what was worse...the product on the field or the fact that our sniveling head coach apologizes for his attempted use of a prop to motivate his players. I have a hard time believing that Brady is really that clueless. You tried to motivate your players and it failed miserably (like pretty much everything the past few years). Goes from talking about being all "tough and physical" to apologizing to the opposing team...no wonder our team has accepted its losing mentality. It is OK to try and install a little hatred for this game instead of this "just another game" bull shit. It's OK to light a fire under the asses of your players. Dantonio has done just that and guess what...6-1 since he's been there. And let's face it...we were EXTREMELY LUCKY to even get that 1.
"I'm sorry Mr. Dantonio...it will never happen again...I'll go back to AA and write on the chalkboard 1000 times that I am sorry for my actions". Give me a freaking break!!!
|10/27/2014 - 9:05am||Upvote for using the term||
Upvote for using the term fuckery!!!
|10/27/2014 - 9:02am||Thanks a lot...I just thew up||
Thanks a lot...I just thew up my breakfast.
Seriously...is it just me or does anyone else get really nauseous at even the slightest bit of support for the current regime? I know this piece (of shit) was written a year ago, but it turns my stomach thinking that DB might actually believe the crap he is spewing.
|10/27/2014 - 8:50am||Depends on whether or not||
Depends on whether or not Hoke decides to go with Morris from this point on.
With Gardner 2-2 (like it or not...still our best chance to win)
With Morris 1-3.
Indiana - W regardless who is QB
NW - Loss (although wouldn't shock me if they pulled this one out)
Maryland - W with Gardner...L with Morris
Ohio St - L
|10/09/2014 - 8:50am||Agree. It seems like we are||
Agree. It seems like we are putting way too much faith in a kid who up until recently wasn't even offered by anyone with a decent football program.
|10/09/2014 - 8:45am||Well...at least we'll have||
Well...at least we'll have first dibs on any "Michigan Men".
|10/08/2014 - 3:42pm||With no connections, his name||
With no connections, his name isn't even brought up.
|10/07/2014 - 8:54am||I'll take some of what you're||
I'll take some of what you're smoking!!!
|10/03/2014 - 8:57am||Unfortunately RR had the||
Unfortunately RR had the decked stacked against him and there were folks undermining him from day one. RR is a good coach but given the circumstances he faced, it just wasn't going to work at Michigan.
But hey...at least we now have our "Michigan Man".
|10/03/2014 - 8:51am||Am I the only one whose||
Am I the only one whose stomach turns every time there is even an inkling of support for this coaching staff?
|10/02/2014 - 9:08am||Huey Lewis - I WANT A NEW||
Huey Lewis - I WANT A NEW DRUG!!!
Sorry for the double post.
|10/02/2014 - 9:05am||Huey Lewis - I WANT A NEW||
Huey Lewis - I WANT A NEW DRUG!!!
|10/02/2014 - 8:56am||Yeah, but any competant AD||
Yeah, but any competant AD would be doing the same so don't give Dave credit for catering to his athletes.
|10/02/2014 - 8:51am||Wouldn't expect any more than||
Wouldn't expect any more than the same old BS he (they've) been spewing...
- We screwed up with Morris and changes are being put in place to make sure it doesn't happen again.
- Brady and I get along just fine.
- We (he and Brady) both love this university and want nothing more than to turn this around.
- We feel Brady is the right man for the job.
- We like the things being put in place.
- We have a young football team so it would be unrealistic not to expect some struggles.
- The fans need to support this team instead of bailing on it right now.
The list goes on and on...
|10/01/2014 - 12:34pm||Is Gardner back for good or||
Is Gardner back for good or until Morris gets healthy? As ill prepared as Morris looked Saturday (really disheartening since he's been in the program for almost 2 years now), Gardner is Hoke's best shot at winning ball games.
|10/01/2014 - 12:33pm||Because all successful||
Because all successful coaches wear headsets and this is Michigan fergodsakes.
Seriously...at this point his ego is getting in the way and he is going out of his way to piss people off.
|10/01/2014 - 8:46am||Desmond||
And as Desmond mentioned on Game Day...in his opinion there is a major lack of drive for anyone on this team to get better. The ONLY guy he menioned was a true freshman (Peppers). Doesn't say much when a true freshman is the ONLY guy out of 115 with that extra drive to improve.
|10/01/2014 - 8:41am||30 pts to the mighty Golden||
30 pts to the mighty Golden Gopher offense...wouldn't exactly call that fine.
|10/01/2014 - 8:38am||Frank Clark||
Come on...when are we going to stop drining the Frank Clark kool aid? He has never lived up to the hype...1.5 sacks in 5 games...high level?
|10/01/2014 - 8:34am||One word...NONEXISTENT.||
Dantonio is making studs out of 3* players while we are making duds out of 4* & 5* players.
|09/30/2014 - 2:55pm||They just need to keep their||
They just need to keep their noses out of where they don't belong and worry about doing their jobs. Why can't we investigate them for failure to do ANYTHING???
|09/29/2014 - 9:43am||What kind of answers do you||
What kind of answers do you expect to get? He's not going to be any more fothcoming than he was before and he surely isn't going to throw himself in front of the bus because he 1) wasn't paying attention to what was going on in the game, or 2) blatently disregarded this kids health by keeping him in the game.
|09/29/2014 - 9:03am||Injured or not is one thing,||
Injured or not is one thing, but is everyone forgetting the fact that Morris was COMPLETELY INEFFECTIVE the entre game. Nothing against the kid but everyone had him as a 4* or 5* coming out of high school...to be in the program for almost 2 full years now and look completely unprepared? Can this staff develop any talent?
|09/29/2014 - 8:57am||This is spiraling out of||
This is spiraling out of control quickly. There isn't a single thing this team does well right now and I just don't see how anyone can watch this crap and think we're headed in the right direction. To sit there and say "we would never put a quaterback who was hurt" in the game and watch what happened on Saturday...you now have to question Brady's credibility.
|09/26/2014 - 11:18am||WIN||
Win games and this will never ben an issue.
|09/25/2014 - 8:43am||Best wishes to the Carr||
Best wishes to the Carr family.
|09/25/2014 - 8:40am||OK...everyone...all together||
OK...everyone...all together now...KUMBAYA MY LORD, KUMBAYA...
|09/25/2014 - 8:35am||QB Situation||
And we would all accept that but stop with the stupid shenanigans about them competing, we have a plan, we'll update everyone tomorrow, etc. Just come out and say you'll find out on Saturday.
|09/25/2014 - 8:32am||Sweet...they had a great||
Sweet...they had a great practice yesterday...that will surely translate into them having a great game, right?
|09/24/2014 - 3:08pm||My vote is for Shane Falco.||
My vote is for Shane Falco.
|09/24/2014 - 2:59pm||Hoke's Ideas||
Enough of Brady "having an idea". The last time we heard about his idea (remember...it was supposed to be a good one) was the O line against ND. I've tried to burn that one from my memory...how did that one work out again?
Seriously...I think we'd all be fine if the starting QB wasn't announced until right before kickoff. Stop the dumb shenanigans about "I'll talk about it tomorrow", "they're competing", or "having an idea what we're going to do" and just say the starting QB will be announced on Saturday and I'm not going to talk about it any more. I'm pretty sure we most of us would accept that.
|09/24/2014 - 9:37am||I'll take some of what you're||
I'll take some of what you're drinking.
|09/24/2014 - 9:36am||Would anyone disagree with||
Would anyone disagree with him if he wasn't HC at MSU? What he says makes perfect sense...how can you legitimately play for a national championship when you're not even your conference champion?
|09/24/2014 - 9:31am||And what will happen if hell||
And what will happen if hell freezes over tomorrow? Looking at this crap on the field...do you seriously think he will win the B1G? The OC we got FROM BAMA was going to be fired...stop with this nonsense that we stole their OC. Faith in a guy that gave us 3 bowl games? The only win was with Rich Rod's players. An alarming loss to an average K State last year where the team wasn't the least bit prepared...we're supposed to give him credit for this?
