Public embarrassment is a de-motivator for weak people. Though, tough to control how that motivation will be used by a stonger person, possibly against oneself. Have to know what type of person you're dealing with.

03/24/2018 - 7:51pm OT Graham Couch

So this is a bit off topic, but I found it a little too funny to not share. A close family member holds a NCAA pool every year. It's a decent size one, over 3400 entries this year. Well, we noticed that our favorite basketball writer Graham Couch is entered (Possibly a different one, but this pool is run from the lansing area...). He entered 2 brackets and did not pay for his entries. His champion picks? Arizona and Virginia.

03/21/2018 - 4:24pm ball type

I didn't read through all the comments so appologies if this has been discussed. Any chance it is the type of ball they are using? I thought I heard the ball they use for the tournament is different thean what is used all year (most places, as schools use their own balls during regular season). I heard this brought up when a couple announcers were talking about how many balls have been wedged against the rim this tournament, saying the ball used for thr tourny is stickier than that of those normally used. I never played any basketball at all so maybe this has little to no affect, but possibly either the ball itself being more sticky or the players just not as used to it. 

10/30/2016 - 7:14pm I believe this happened on

I believe this happened on the sack from Peppers too.

09/04/2016 - 1:51pm I think Harbaugh knows how

I think Harbaugh knows how good of a team they have this year as is preparing for any possible issues This year. If the worst happens, and injuries or something depletes a position all the way to the true freshman, he wants them to have as much experience as possible. Putting the marbles in a basket so to speak, the value of redshirt this year < the possibility of what can be accomplished this year.

07/22/2015 - 12:54pm you have to try out to make a

you have to try out to make a D1 varsity sport? color me shocked, wait I tried out for just about every team I played for starting around the age of 7 or 8

I don't believe Brian was on this morning anyway. Think Nick from mlive replaced him.

08/14/2014 - 6:47pm if he were healthy and

if he were healthy and starting Kalis would take Mags spot correct?

or am I wrong in assuming Cole is above Mags right now, due to him in the LT spot

04/30/2014 - 4:28pm I'd like someone to ask Mel

I'd like someone to ask Mel Pearson his opinion, might get a nice quote. He was around for some of these rumors and was kind of considered a coach in waiting by some (though I believe he was told that he needed head coaching experience, not sure how accurate that is though).

04/26/2014 - 5:51pm what in the HELL was he

what in the HELL was he thinking attempting a high cross ice pass with an empty net, he is completely worthless. probably get the game tying goal if we get one...

04/26/2014 - 5:46pm that too many men i'm pretty

that too many men i'm pretty sure is on franzen who couldn't catch up after giving up the puck. backcecking on the 2 on 2 he trails off to the bench but didn't get off like he should of and zetty jumped out assuming he would get off and then hopefully go take a seat in the lockerroom 

04/26/2014 - 5:19pm and the turnover for the goal

and the turnover for the goal on franzen

04/26/2014 - 5:18pm As usual, nice to see franzen

As usual, nice to see franzen out on the PP coughing up the puck. I'm always amazed at Pavel's dsicions on pps though, seems so calm on the side boards where other players play too quick.

04/26/2014 - 4:59pm especially after a goalie

especially after a goalie interference where the player was at least partially pushed in, you have to know the refs will be looking to even it up.

04/26/2014 - 4:54pm I honestly don't know if

I honestly don't know if there is anything franzen could do to get scratched, he takes a penalty on the PP and will still be out there for any PP's we get the rest of the game

04/26/2014 - 3:39pm I get that, and it's not like

I get that, and it's not like the Wings have anyone else to really fill that role, but he's a listed 6'1", 219 and isn't a fighter or anything. How honest does he actually keep opposing players?

04/26/2014 - 3:37pm Anytime they let pierre talk

Anytime they let pierre talk is a great time to check in on the Tigers.

04/26/2014 - 3:27pm I really don't like justin as

I really don't like justin as a first/second liner. he is not able to keep up with them. even as a spartan i really like his style of play, but as a third liner. there he can still be physical and a real potential scoring threat against other 3rd/4th liners

04/24/2014 - 11:29pm oh yeah, i agree with you.

oh yeah, i agree with you. and i more meant the 20/20 hindsight on hossa's injury he was coming off of. i think that really scared the wings

04/24/2014 - 11:19pm hind sight is obviously 20/20

hind sight is obviously 20/20 with him coming off the knee issue, but to think we chose him over hossa pretty much

04/24/2014 - 11:19pm hind sight is obviously 20/20

hind sight is obviously 20/20 with him coming off the knee issue, but to think we chose him over hossa pretty much

04/24/2014 - 11:15pm agree. and more so for last

agree. and more so for last off season, but man would i have liked a dman that actually meant something. i like the young risers dekeyser as a stay at home big d, smith as a offensive defensman ( he needs another year or so still). not just a body like quincy. that would have been useful if dekeyser and smith were more along in their development

04/24/2014 - 11:12pm two different deflections....

two different deflections.... tought to stop that. 

04/24/2014 - 11:09pm not stats or anything to back

no stats or anything to back this up, but that seems to be, at least in my mind, to be a slight issue with big goalies 

04/24/2014 - 10:58pm while i do love the redwings

while i do love the redwings jerseys, even their winter classics have been nice, i think the rangers jerseys are great as well

04/24/2014 - 10:31pm franzen....at least he knows

franzen....at least he knows the best thing he can do on the ice is fall on chara's stick

04/24/2014 - 10:15pm im amazed by how many wings

im amazed by how many wings passes are just at players and not to players. very few passes to the tape of players, especially in the d zone. far too often passes arent even on the ice

04/24/2014 - 8:41pm at what point can we scratch

at what point can we scratch franzen? is his only value his quick shot? i just dont understand  the ice time he logs

04/11/2014 - 2:32pm he clearly states it is NOT

he clearly states it is NOT because of McGary's decision. why even make the comment in this thread if you didn't read the article

02/16/2014 - 5:07pm why on a shooting foul was

why on a shooting foul was nebraska only given a 1 and 1 and after missing the refs talked about it and gave ball to msu?

02/08/2014 - 2:13pm GR3 get picked from behind

GR3 get picked from behind with regularity when dribbling upcourt....

12/29/2013 - 1:19am there is only one letter

there is only one letter wrong in there. change the and to any....but nice work

12/29/2013 - 12:53am not only are we not good, all

not only are we not good, all of our coaches are cowards....hurray 

12/29/2013 - 12:47am is there anything at all that

is there anything at all that could lose and coach on this staff under Brandon his job? serious question, and i mean literally anything?

12/28/2013 - 1:33pm did anyone else get the

did anyone else get the impression that almost anytime Morris touches his towel it is a passing play and that it seems on handoffs he does not. Hope that is not a tell and just a coincidence

12/24/2013 - 6:23pm “I don’t care if a freshman

“I don’t care if a freshman is playing or a senior is playing -- our goal is to be balanced,” Borges said. “That’s always been our goal.

really wish the goal was to win....

/s just thought it was a funnyish quote

12/11/2013 - 2:24pm I understand all the "he can

I understand all the "he can do better" sentiment. He is from the northeast though right? If he wants to go back to wherever home or family is at all, what programs are there opportunities at?

11/14/2013 - 1:12pm yep, just keep thinking he

yep, just keep thinking he chose Alabama over Michigan because of the engineering program. I'm sure it doesn't have to do with the other big part of his life, football. Where Alabama has won 3/4 Nat Championships and we have lost 3/4 game. Real head scratcher there.

11/01/2013 - 10:14pm i thought tech looked either

i thought tech looked either stronger or in better shape then us. i would guess that has to do with the youth we have and so many players not having gone throught a college weight program. 

11/01/2013 - 8:03pm camera man is

camera man is terrible....wish he/she would stay not zoomed in in the offensive zone

10/17/2013 - 2:27pm we are most certainly better

we are most certainly better with him. I'm just saying that because he went out in the 2nd half our OL didn't  just get tons worse, even with 2 great tackles, one an all american, our O-line hasn't been productive.

or Taylor missing for a half is not an excuse we can use to explain OL problems

10/17/2013 - 2:23pm this is exactly what we ARE

this is exactly what we ARE saying. they learned that the startegy in OT1 was complete shit, didn't use it in later OT's, and guess what? we were in a better position to kick a fg or get a td if it had been needed. And we made that fg. 

10/17/2013 - 2:19pm if you think no one would

if you think no one would have complained had that fg been made i don't know what to say to you. since i know i would have complained, and i am pretty sure Brian would have to. Before the drive even started I said to those around me "just please don't be cowards now, do not rely on a college kicker" And that is exactly what we did. 

I didn't look both ways before crossing the street once and made it, i should probably use that strategy from now on. 

10/17/2013 - 2:14pm you would rather run 3 time

you would rather run 3 time for 1 yards than take a chance at throwing (not taking into account huge space allowed by corners and the defense stacking 8-10 in the box) with some nonzero chance that is probably less than a couple percentage points of a pick 6. so if you were OC we would be punting on every first down as it is apperent if we did run 3 staright time we gain 1-4 yards. holy cow, I hope i never actually have to count on somebody this risk adverse
