I hate that a foul was called on us at all on the McQuaid three foul shots. He obviously initiated the contact. But giving him three FT was ridiculous. He didnt even attempt to shoot the ball there. That was the game. No call on it and Michigan wins.

Poole is our achilles heal. Cant shoot, bad handle and doesnt play defense.

Go look at Lori Laughlins daughters you tube page where she talks about college as a place to party and go to games but not for anything such as school work.

 "This was already a rapidly dying concept in the era of the Bad Boys"

Isaiah Thomas, John Stockton, Dennis Johnson, Magic Johnson, Mark Price, Mo Cheeks, Nate Archibald and Sidney Moncrief say hello. And thats just off the top of my head.  Man Brian how old were you during the Bad Boys Era?

The rise of non-traditional powers using 22 and 23 year olds  has hurt the traditional powers with large fan bases alienating college hockeys base. I dont think this should be underestimated.

My extended family was huge into college hockey. Not so much anymore. And it came right around the time the B1G started and BU, BC, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and MSU type teams began struggling with teams of 18 yr old future NHLers competing against older teams full of 22 and 23 year old  career AHLers.

Boxing isnt the most popular because MMA, a far more violent sport, is.

Your point would have been better made if you had called him Prick Ward.

You didnt deserve negs for your observation.

Our defense is awesome. As good as Ive ever seen from a Michigan team.

 But fine is as far as I will go with the offense and thats a stretch. It is very clunky atm. A lot of that though could be the poor shooting but the drive and dish game looks off. Pick and roll/pop are much better. Also have trouble getting all the way to the hoop and when we do miss more bunnies than Id like to see. FT arent quite the adventure they were previously, so thats a plus. Assists seem down. A ton more late clock iso/hero ball.

So fine I guess is the right way to put it. And fine is not what Id call a glowing endorsement.

One big plus in this game and season so far is the teams mental toughness. Go on a run against us and we always seem to have the answer.

01/26/2019 - 8:42am Yes but that #1 vs #2,…

Yes but that #1 vs #2, Michigan vs GT, Tarpley vs Salley win was sweet. Remember watching with my Uncle John who was a classmate of Gerald Ford. I was a sophomore I think. It was one of the ugliest offensive games Ive ever seen between two teams each with a ton of offensive firepower. Or it was one of the best defensive games played by two teams Ive ever seen. Im still trying to figure that out 34 years later.

Good. I get to neg your stupidity twice.

No actually you cant say the same about Warriner. Warriner was fired at OSU and then worked some years elsewhere before coming to Michigan. Mattison jumped ship. Twice. To our two most hated enemies. F Mattison.

He may be the most accomplished but considering that our DLine got no pressure whatsoever on Haskins in The Game against an ok but not great OLine, the game may have passed him by. His recruiting had fallen off considerably since the Hoke regime as well. Then you add in that he is a two time traitor. F Mattison.

My wife is from Canada. Her brother likes what he calls blood and mud. Its a thing there. Ive seen people in restaurants doing it. He takes a big pile of french fries and douses it in vinegar. Then he adds brown gravy and lastly covers it in ketchup. /vomit

My wife always asks for brown gravy with her french fries when eating out. She skips the ketchup but will use vinegar if there isnt access to gravy.

Nobody in her family does poutine though we all love p mail bacon. I made the mistake of trying to get p mail across the border once because the canadian bacon we get here is really just ham. My p mail bacon was quarantined for 2 weeks. So now I just order it direct and save myself the headache.

Looks like Ill be listening to the Tigers on the radio more often. Sheppard sucks balls.

I +1 every one of your posts. You humiliated yourself before the entire MGoBlog community yet stayed here and took it like a man. Plus you made me laugh my ass off.

Has passed even Detroit? WTF. Why was that needed in your post? Why didnt you say even worse than NYC, the city directly below Columbus. Just needed to take a cheap shot at Detroit because its easy? Or do you equate Detroit with the worst of everything? Do you live in Detroit and have a bad problem with bed bugs? Do you live in Michigan at all? 

If you look at the list, Columbus is exactly where it was last year at number 5. In fact, the top 5 are exactly the same as last year. They havent passed anyone. Detroit has fallen from number 7 to number 8. Your comment about Detroit makes little sense. SMH

I havent dug into the details. Ive only seen the headlines.The optics are incredibly bad from that perspective. It opens the University to a ton of criticism from the 99% of people who will only see the headlines. And those are the people who will scream the loudest on social media. So, even if after viewing the details, its a good move, the only thing that really matters is the uninformed masses screeching outrage.

Why would you leave yourself open for this? Its very myopic.

Why should MGoBlog be any different than any other discussion forum on the internet? Or anywhere else for that matter? Contempt for anyone outside our tribe is the rule of the day.

Justin Rogers is very talented. Im not sure though that Id recruit his attitude.

Stopping Armys run game is all about discipline in your run fits. While we wont see this exact offense again working on perfecting your run fits is never a waste of time.

Yes but his USFL career with the Michigan Panthers was glorious. Our only pro football championship in my lifetime.

Pre-college my favorites are Harlan Huckleby, AC and Rob Lytle. During my college years its Harbaugh and Mark Messner. Post college Woodson, Desmond and Tripp Welborne. Thats as far as I can narrow it down.

Favorite Michigan Man who didnt play... Ufer. Those fall afternoons with my Dad listening to Ufer were the best of my life and I never miss the buy week replay with Ufer.

It didnt take elite talent to expose Dobbs. I saw him play live and he was underwhelming against HS kids half his size.

Davis is starting to contribute a bit. He is looking more comfortable out there. 

As the season progresses the offense will improve as it seems to every season. That is exciting. An efficient offense with this defense will be tough to stop. They will always be prone to poor offensive games though due to their overall poor shooting.

FT shooting isnt stellar but doesnt seem to be as big a problem this year as last. Matthews in particular looks to have improved.

Its gonna be a special season.

OSU got TD and 3 stops too but it wasnt BALLGAME for them. Your entire premise loses its credibility right there. Emotions and hot takes are not logic and facts.

There are a lot of posters here who are full of crap. We are a sanctimonious, narcissistic society that thrives on angst, fake outrage and drama. I truly hope future generations can crawl out of the mirror, throw away their selfie-sticks and get back to common sense and logical thinking.

Hmm KenPom: Michigan 4th and Tennessee 11th. Bart Torvik: Michigan 3rd, Tennessee 8th. NCAAs NET: Michigan 3rd, Tennessee 8th.  See I can play that cherry pick game too.

What some unconnected person who sat in the stands feels isnt "real information". There isnt a shred of "real information" there. Thats where the negs are coming from. And deservedly so.

Clicks, clicks, clicks, clicks, clicks. Thats what passes for journalism over the entire spectrum of our news today. It is all driven by clicks and advertising dollars. There has not been a news article posted in the last 15 years that wasnt motivated primarily by clicks. We are in a new age of yellow journalism where nothing can be taken seriously.
