The refs are right there and no one on the ice said anything about this. Clearly the media looking for a story

05/03/2018 - 11:48am What

He was being pulled by ovechkin. This is a stretch

01/24/2015 - 7:51pm Exactly. Tons of coaches

Exactly. Tons of coaches bench fumblers, yet the patriots are the only ones with off the chart fumble rates

01/24/2015 - 4:19pm Barry Bonds too

Barry Bonds too


But seriously, maybe the Patriots are actually the best of all time at not fumbling, like the players you mentioned were the best of all time at what they do. 

With all those players you can point to unique skills etc that make them the best.  What makes the Patriots the best?  It could be any number of things, but it seems silly to completely dismiss deflating the balls as a possible explanation. 



01/24/2015 - 4:06pm Fair point

But its not that the Patriots were the best, I could buy that.  Its that they appear to be so far off the charts better than any other team. 

They are clearly doing something differently, maybe theres another explanation for it, but in the midst of this controversy it's definitely something worth looking into / talking about.

01/24/2015 - 3:38pm Such as?

I dont doubt that teams can be better than others at preventing fumbles.  It does seem unlikely that one team could be that much better for that long without doing something differently though. 

01/24/2015 - 3:33pm Agreed, this doesnt seem like

Agreed, this doesnt seem like a coincedence.  Brady/Pats fans will want to ignore this too though

10/21/2014 - 4:23pm Big difference between in state and out of state

It seems that the rivalry has always been a big deal for in state students. They have friends family etc from state so that makes the rivalry more intense

For in state students most people don't know anyone from state so it isn't as big of a deal. It generally was just another game we usually win, until recently.

Because Michigan has a large out of state percentage and many people get jobs out of state, the rivalry really didn't mean too much as long as we were in winning most of the time.

10/07/2014 - 12:55pm Terrible idea

I'm in favor of showing we don't approve of Brandon but this is not the way.

A rally, signs etc show that we still care about and support the program but want a new ad.

A boycott doesn't show any support for anything and makes it look like we just don't care.

If this actually happens the headline won't read "students boycott kickoff to protest Brandon" it will read "Michigan students no longer cafe about football team after recent struggles"
