WOTS around the USF area when it happened was that it was bullshit that he got fired.  He is a darn good coach and I would be happy to have him at Michigan.  

02/12/2019 - 6:05pm Yep - that game was more…

Yep - that game was more about the jimmies and joes than the x's and o's.  The lack of pass rush by the jimmies caused too much stress on the joes to cover all of that speed with a QB throwing darts and hitting the bullseye on almost every throw.

I probably won't watch it.  Or the AFL for that matter.  I love football but don't want it all year long.  It's that big hunger that builds up over the Winter, Spring and Summer that makes College football so great.  

I also thought the XFL would want some flash and innovation with its offense, so I'm not sure this is a good hire.  

02/03/2019 - 4:43pm Why would he want to boot…

Why would he want to boot his starting QB (I know Blackman has some promise) to give the "impression" that he is running a tight ship?  I think he booted him for good reason.  I doubt all the facts that went into the decision are known yet.

Friday night on the road in Iowa - I expect a close one.

Remember just a few years ago when everyone was ready to fire Beilein?

Down here in Florida I spent the day with my boys as they had practice for their respective travel baseball teams.  Always fun to watch them play and be out on the field.  It was in the high 70's with little humidity.  Tomorrow is looking ugly for Florida standards but nowhere near the nasty weather that is happening in the north.  Stay safe and warm everyone.  Having pizza and wine today.  Chiefs/Rams in the Superbowl.

FYI - Vegas has the 1997 team laying 63 1/2 to the 1895 team.  Over/under is 71. The experts are talking about a size advantage and athleticism advantage or something along those lines.  Vegas always knows their shit, so I am going to lay the points and take the under.

#2 team at 17-0 (#1 if we win) vs 11-6 and yet we are only -2 in Vegas.  Doesn't make sense right?  Take Wisc and the points.  I can't see Michigan losing this one which is even more reason to take Wisc and the points.  Seems like 90% of the time when "I can't see" something happening...it happens.

I haven't banged in a few weeks.  Good to be here.

Have to give Paul Carey some love too.  He was great when he was with Ernie. They made a great team.

I don't know man.  I lived there for the first 31 years of my life then moved to Florida 17 years ago.  There isn't enough money at the Federal Reserve to pay me to live in Michigan ever again.  A long weekend each Fall is as much of Michigan I can take.  I'm fond of the State and enjoyed growing up there, but no fucking way could I ever endure another Winter.

I'll take the chalk today big.  I'm going Rams/Chiefs for the Super Bowl.

By the way, it is Arthur Andersen with an "e".  I know this because when I graduated I sent them a resume.  Of course I spelled it Anderson and promptly received my "thank you for your interest..." letter.  Ultimately everything worked out just fine as I ended up working for a fantastic local firm in Ann Arbor.  

01/11/2019 - 7:01pm Herd mentality piling on for…

Herd mentality piling on for sure.  What you say makes realistic sense and has been a known thing for as long as I have been a sports fan.  Being undefeated brings huge pressure.  Losing a meaningless game (this isn't college football) will take the future focus off of staying undefeated and place it on just winning the game at hand.  I've been thinking about this for the last couple weeks now.  To answer your question, I would honestly prefer they lose a road game to a good team and be done with it.  Regroup, come back and finish strong.  

01/11/2019 - 4:27pm If you drop the "Y" from…

If you drop the "Y" from your name and precede it with a "Short fat", you will get the definition of a chode.  Always one of my favorite words.  Right up there with "Pud".  

01/10/2019 - 12:50pm I would agree. If he takes…

I would agree. If he takes five years off, his skills will diminish and he likely won't make it to the big league level.  It takes an incredible amount of work to get yourself ready to play at the big league level.

Chris Webber all day long.  And if you want a shooter, I'll take Glen Rice.

I believe he is referring to both halves.

Honestly this is hard to believe.

Kid was probably goofing off in the huddle but I can see how that certainly warranted a suspension.  It was worse than what I thought after only reading about it.

It doesn't get any better than this:

I don't know if he is a good OC or not, but what I do know is that it is always more about the Jimmy's and Joe's than the X's and O's.  Great players are what make great coaches.  It's not the other way around.  People think a new OC or DC, or HC will make all the difference.  It's the players.  Always has been and always will be.

We bitched about it all year, but I honestly wasn't impressed by Ross and his reads last weekend.  There had to be a good reason he wasn't playing as much as we thought he should have been.

100% honesty - Casper couldn't hold Fred Flinstone's jock.  Casper was one of the worst cartoons ever.

I'm not a big face-tweeter fan, but that was really well done and inspiring.  After watching how hard he was playing this past weekend, he has to be the odds on favorite to wear the "C" on his jersey next season.

My HS Civics teacher told the class there are two kinds of people in the world:  Those that pick their nose and liars.

I think we would have beat Nebraska in '97

A 4th or 5th rd pick will sign a 4 year contract in the $2.5M - $3M range.  That's a bit more cheddar than $167k/year.  And that was based on 2016 contract values.

Who scheduled Army?  Never schedule service academy teams if you don't have to.

I think "Easy credit ripoffs" comes before Hangin in a chow line.  And I think we only know that line because of the Chapelle Show.

My interest in the NFL wanes more and more each year.  I have hardly watched it all this year.  I did watch the 2nd half of Cleve/Balt yesterday and that was fun.  I was mostly referring to the rest of the country and what they will be watching next Sunday at 4:30.

Going up against the NFL playoffs? - doesn't seem like the best time slot for CBS.

NW did win the West so "pretty bad" is a bit harsh.  They weren't elite or anything, but going into NW and getting a win was a good win for any B1G team this year.

I like DPJ too.  He is a real talent that I think is under utilized.  Chuck is obviously a lot more positive than the board.

Strong D Lines are what have driven the SEC to their dominance over the last two decades.  

12/30/2018 - 10:16am It wasn't that archaic when…

It wasn't that archaic when we were hammering everyone all year.  It needs an element of creativity, no doubt.  But I think this game came down to a case of who wanted it more.  And that begins back in early December when the bowl was announced.  From the coaches on down to the players and even the energy from the fans, we didn't have the hunger or desire to give it our best for this game.  Florida did and they kicked our ass.  It was the reverse of 2015 when we came in hungry with a 1st year Harbaugh and Florida was coming in disappointed about their season.  They come in with 1st year Mullen with things on the ascent and we come in off one of the biggest disappointments in school history.

Good call.  Watching it was like walking in your parents having sex.  It scars you for life and really elevates your Bpone.  I skipped an event to watch the game.  Poor choice on my part.  

12/30/2018 - 7:21am Agree.  These non-playoff…

Agree.  These non-playoff bowl games are often met with at most one team that wants to play and the other that didn't prepare and doesn't want to be there.  Sound familiar?  My interest in bowls has waned considerably since the playoff system began.  

And as far as yesterday goes, the hungrier team was going to win that game and we looked like a team that pigged out before the game.  Coaches included.  The only good thing was the punt block team.  We blocked two punts and still got our doors blown off.  

12/29/2018 - 7:14am And of course it includes…

And of course it includes his crew bending ISU over with another horseshit targeting call.  Matt Campbell had every right to go apeshit on that one.  The force of that hit would not have hurt if the QB wasn't wearing a helmet.  What a joke.  And McElroy, you don't have the stones to speak up and call bullshit on that.  Always toeing the company line.  I like McElroy but I lost a little respect for him last night.
