He's just mad he created and spent an entire thread railing on DPJ and then of course he has himself a game.  Then he spent an entire thread telling everyone how Dax Hill was going to Alabama and Sam Webb was full of shit for even suggesting Michigan had a legitimate shot at getting him.   I think we can expect everything he posts to be dumb and/or factually incorrect from this point on.

$7.50 for the collector cup.  Of water.  Insanity.

09/17/2018 - 3:25pm I too only make it to one…

I too only make it to one game a year, and this was the game because I have kids and really don't want to drop $150 a ticket for them to lose interest by halftime.  Being back in A2, the walk to the stadium, the pregame - thats what it is all about.  But this game fucking sucked.   We left after the third quarter because it was unbearable sitting there roasting while time out after time out and commercial after commercial stopped play.  The most unenjoyable live sporting experience of my life.  Maybe next year I'll do all the stuff I love and go watch the game at a bar.  It's sad for me that the game itself is ruining the game day experience.

Pizza Bob's is great.  We always do the Brown Jug prior to games because parking is easier that side of town and the walk is still only about a mile.  Plus you get the added bonus of walking through frat row and seeing a ton of super drunk college students - always a nice trip down memory lane.  Dominick's is another good spot right by the business college, again parking near there is easy and its a quick walk up to state street from there.

I'm guessing by the number of comments in this thread you are in the minority.  This post is 1000x better than another one about our left tackle situation.

09/04/2018 - 11:35am I just commented below…

I just commented below before reading this but lack of urgency in the 4th quarter combined with questionable use of time outs in previous games (end of half, end of games) are not single game errors.  I would laugh at another team's coach if they consistently botched these things on a regular basis.  

I give the staff a pass on the QB situation the last three years - they made the best of what they had.  The oline issues should have been addressed by now, with 3 star recruits if no one else was willing to commit.  If you don't even have a plausible option right now at tackle it is 100% a recruiting failure.

09/04/2018 - 11:31am I'm usually last in line at…

I'm usually last in line at the torch and pitchfork sale but the clock management issues are concerning.  I understand if it is a backup QB coming in because of injury and their comfort level calling plays isn't the same, but our offense in the last half of the 4th quarter was not good despite the late TD.  The huddling, not getting snaps off until under 10 seconds on the play clock.  It's a miracle we got the last possession to have a chance to tie the game.  Out of all the problems with the football program this is the one to me that shouldn't exist - running a hurry up offense.   Jim Harbaugh isn't dumb, he isn't a bad coach.  Was he botching time management issues at his previous stops?  I'm not smart enough regarding football strategy to comment on offensive line play but conserving time on the clock shouldn't be overwhelming for the coaches we have on staff.  The crossing route to Gentry with 1:30 to go pushed me over the edge.  They spent 15 seconds of game time after a first down getting the play off, then ran a play short of the sticks where our guy was going to get tackled in bounds if completed.  If you aren't ready to get a play off immediately at that point then spike the ball.  Time was more important than having an extra down at that juncture.

08/27/2018 - 5:00pm I would imagine those two…

I would imagine those two guys are prepared enough that the staff would rather they take no contact at this point to get as close to 100% as possible.  They are two very good, important players.  Not surprised they were held out of drills if they had minor boo boos.

My bet is Punt/Counter Punt.  Begin speculation as to who is leaving.

Probably realized after the summer that he not only had no chance to play but also wasn't going to get any reps, as I'm sure Michigan is more focused on developing their younger guys.  But, yeah, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to look at our QB depth chart and move on to another option in the first place.

Offensive line looks "tremendous".  It's like he knows just what we want to hear.

Dude is going to get picked apart in every press conference this season.  He can "no-comment I'm only answering questions about football" until he's blue in the face but until he responds to questions regarding the investigation report he isn't going to get an inch of wiggle room in front of the media.  They gonna lock all the national press out of his post-game pressers?  Because that is the only way he's going to be able to talk about football.

I agree with this take.  He is either resigning or the BoT is going all in on the Meyers.

08/22/2018 - 4:02pm If he's "stepping down" it…

If he's "stepping down" it would make sense.  Or the University is throwing full support behind the two of them and clearing their good names.  Either would make sense, latter is more likely.

Is it sad that this graphic is making me realize how irrelevant we have been for the last 12 years?

I the black levels are outstanding, the glare is the only real drawback.  I'll cry when my 65" plasma goes.  I have a hard time watching movies on an led because of the soap opera effect.  Some ppl don't see it but it drives me crazy.  It has something to do with the way the processor smoothes the picture quality.  I dont know but I Kno I hate it.

Samsung is great.  Do not under any circumstances get an LG led.  The screen will go within 2000 viewing hours.  The Panasonic plasmas were tanks, they just don't make things like they used to.

The quoted text says the "pictures are from 2010", the phone wasn't made then so what they are saying to disparage her is not true.

Because it allows the person the leave something behind as a legacy.  People with a lot of money tend to want to build things and leave a mark before they pass - so do all people but they may not have the means to do so.  Do you have an issue with Mott Children's Hospital being named after C.S. Mott?  You realize that many of the things built on campus carry the names of donors, right?  Giving anonymously is a beautiful thing, but so is giving even when something is named in honor of the donor.  I'm grateful for their support of something I love.  Michigan athletics and academics would not be where they are without the support of wealthy alumni and supporters.

I have one and there's never been a thing on it that has needed to be repaired that I couldn't do myself and I'm not super handy but can use a wrench and screw driver.  As long as the motor and electronics are sound they are pretty simple machines.

Precors are good, I have a Nordictrack commercial 1750 that's lasted me 8 years averaging 30 miles a week on it.  Get something with a good motor and learn how to replace small bolts yourself because things will break.  As long as it's not the motor they are pretty easy dyi projects.  Usually $1000-$1500 will get you something dependable unless you want bells and whistles.

The trajectory of that group of boys from the beginning of season 5 to the end of season 6 is incredible.  It's a pretty fatalistic story line from where they start to where they end up, with the exception of Namond.

Is making fun of MSU for developing talent an actual thing?  Making fun of Mork for being an ass-hat sure, I'm there on that one.  Reality is MSU has done more with less "stars" than about any other team in the country, I don't really know what there is to make fun of in that regard.  Slightly jealous of their success (on the football field) in all honesty.

It's probably worse for the West division than for the East but it increases the chances of another L on the schedule (assuming you are still scheduling 1 quality out of conference game already).  If we go 10-2 with the second loss as a 5th conference away game at Iowa you may not think the nine game schedule is such a good idea, at least while other conferences are choosing to play 8.

I have to disagree with the posters recommending to get a new puppy ASAP.  If it works that is great, but making a decision based on emotion usually leads to trouble (or bad decisions).  Our boys were together for 12 years and it took a couple weeks for our younger dog to get into a new routine, one that he is currently thriving in.  I will wait until he has passed before we consider adding a new dog to the household.  If your younger dog is actually young, then wait a few months for the emotions to settle down then decide if the timing is right.  In our case our "younger" dog is actually pretty old so it didn't seem fair to introduce a new dog into his life during his twilight years.  

06/02/2018 - 10:07am The regents still have to

The regents still have to approve any deal that the AD negotiates, right?  So just asking might not be the most effective way to fast track any raises for his assistants, this however would probably get their attention.

They are very territorial but harmless to humans (at least ours never stung us, just really pushed us off their nesting spot). they will return each year to the same location so get rid of them. Terrifying just because of how but they are

05/26/2018 - 3:34pm I'm not sure we understand

I'm not sure we understand "shady" the way you do.  Offering both twins is closer to "shady" than offering just the one and even that isn't shady.  Just because they are twins it doesn't mean they are at the same place athletically or as football players.

I have issues with those stats though. Their per carry rushing stats are basically team rushing averages, of course those would be similar. I'd like to see number of carries, that would tell a better story of who is getting the bulk of those yards. And the draft position for super bowl running backs is misleading when two undrafted guys played on two teams that won 7 of those championships. what is the draft position of the last 15 QB Superbowl champions? It's honestly not going to look much different yet they are arguing drafting a QB early makes more sense than drafting a running back.  I get that Barry Sanders and Adrian Peterson didn't win Super Bowls but I'm don't think drafting those guys was the reason their teams were unsuccessful.  The Patriots model is great, based on results it obviously works but that kind of all hinges on finding a Hall of Fame QB.

The offensive line.  But I have unrealistically high hopes for them as well for some reason.  Outside of that question mark this should be one of the most talented teams we've fielded in a long time.

This post could be 100% fiction, but I'm still eating it up like gospel.

Right, but if you are a former coach, parent or whatever you aren't helping the kid here.  You help the kid by supporting and encouraging him and then having a conversation with the staff if you really think it is necessary.  How does his twitter rant further that purpose?  It doesn't, it furthers his own selfish agenda.

04/19/2018 - 8:34am Coach has the

Coach has the passive-aggressive game down cold.  Bonus points for using "interesting" multiple times.  I'd probably have more respect if he just said what he actually thinks and even more respect if he would address his concerns to the coaching staff instead of this crap.

Graham Couch will write whatever he believes his readers want to hear. If they want to hear that MSU is primed for a final four run, he'll write that article. If they want to hear the Dantonio and Izzo are upright citizens he'll write that. He would only pen this column if he felt that the slappies were getting uncomfortable with the current landscape.

Hopefully Teske is lethal with his mid range jumper next year.  If Moe leaves it is going to be rough not having 5 guys on the floor to stretch the defense and his absense will make it harder for other guys to get good looks.

Nobody moves a pool table. If you can convince someone you are doing them a favor by leaving it for them then you are winning.

Listening to his interview after the game was an eye opener. I almost believe he enjoys coaching and teaching more than winning. I know I'm biased but it's awesome to see someone be successful while doing things the right way. And those kids are all better for having him as a mentor.

My glass half full take from last night was that Nova didn't seem to close out well on shooters and we're a bit sloppy getting over/under screens. Hopefully that little extra space allows our guys to go off from deep.

03/27/2018 - 9:44pm The best part is Speights stats his second year

The best part is Speights stats his second year here are better than Griese as a 5th year senior. Griese was a very good game manager. He did it well in college and he did it well enough to get multiple pro starts. I would take game very good game manager this year over two unproven back ups.

Agree, I think we are tired running our starters the majority of this game since Teske and Company have looked unable to keep up. Stops are good for us right now.
