Last words?

I’m looking forward to going to heaven because you don’t ever see a Spartan or Buckeye up there!

02/12/2019 - 11:40pm While I don’t approve of…

While I don’t approve of conspiracy theories, the fact is we have had this clown in 3 of our last 8 games.

How many crews does the B1G have?

To me, you should never see the same crew that often.

02/06/2019 - 2:06pm I find myself wondering at…

I find myself wondering at time if either Shaq or Kareem came up today if either would see the floor in today's NBA.

(I don't take this thought as a good thing)

02/06/2019 - 1:01pm Traded for a center.

Traded for a center.

Interesting.

Maybe this gives them space to trade another center who makes more money?

02/05/2019 - 4:38pm I'm surprised so many people…

I'm surprised so many people are mentioning coding.

One of my best friends works as an engineering manager and has several coders working for/under him. He says "never be a coder, unless you want to compete with people from India who are smarter than you and willing to work for 1/3 your pay."

02/05/2019 - 4:30pm That's very generous of you.

That's very generous of you.

02/05/2019 - 3:15pm I think you underrate both…

I think you underrate both Jumbo and Bubba.

Both were crucial components to winning multiple Super Bowls

02/02/2019 - 6:11pm Youngs background only makes…

Youngs background only makes his conduct at MSU aiding in the Nassar cover up all the more odious.

If you overcome your own background as a marginalized student, it’s disgusting you would then take that education and attempt to use it to marginalize sexual assualt victims.

 

So yes, he’s a POS.

02/01/2019 - 4:28pm I'm not sure I'm down with…

I'm not sure I'm down with naming names, but I can say that I lived in South Quad in the early 80s (that was where the football team lived then).

The team used to stay in a hotel on Friday nights before a game. Largely, I suppose to avoid having players drunk and hungover on game day Saturdays.

I can say that if Bo knew that 2 day hangovers were a thing, they might have won a few more games in those years.

02/01/2019 - 11:44am I am going to be the…

I am going to be the contrarian here and give Rutgers full pointers for being honest and forthright in this audit.

Let's contrast this with our "friends" in East Lansing who hired a law firm to audit their response to the Nassar scandal and intentionally paid for a verbal instead of a written report so they could cover up the findings.

01/31/2019 - 3:47pm I imagine the data doesn't…

I imagine the data doesn't really exist (yet) to do this type of indepth research.

I suppose it also would greatly matter who that 7th person in the box was - a safety walking down into the box, or a linebacker.

01/31/2019 - 11:08am They seem poorly coaches or…

They seem poorly coached or perhaps don’t respond to coaching, but it’s a shit show.

01/29/2019 - 9:15pm Apparently, due to some odd…

Apparently, due to some odd salary cap rules, the Celtics would be required to trade Kyrie as part of any trade for Davis

01/29/2019 - 9:13pm Wrong. The trade deadline in…

Wrong. The trade deadline in February 9, upon which Griffin will still be 29.

01/29/2019 - 8:51pm I assumed NO would want a 5…

I assumed NO would want a 5 in any trade for Davis.

 

01/29/2019 - 8:43pm Back in the day, there used…

Back in the day, there used to be public service announcements for a program called RIF.

 You might look into it.

01/29/2019 - 7:57pm It saves the Pistons $13…

It saves the Pistons $13 million on the salary cap for 3 years.

Still sure it’s that bad?

01/29/2019 - 7:55pm The NBA trade machine doesn…

The NBA trade machine doesn’t account for draft picks in trades, but I would imagine the Lakers would have to send NO a -#1 or two to seal the deal.

01/29/2019 - 7:54pm Zero percent because of…

Zero percent because of Wagner.

Obviously, I wouldn’t suggest the Pistons get involved in this unless they can turn a bit of a profit.

01/27/2019 - 1:08pm Horrible idea for a few…

Horrible idea for a few reasons.

1. The networks would have a commercial after every play.

2. Do penalties count as a play? 

3. What if I punt on my play and pin you on the 5 yard line?

01/23/2019 - 2:02pm General recruiting question…

General recruiting question.

I know we aren't going to pay $$$$ for the 5 stars, but shouldn't we expect a bit of a bump after the last couple years of on court results?

01/20/2019 - 8:20pm Yes, I saw that.

The fairly…

Yes, I saw that.

The fairly obvious observation is hard to prove is not impossible to prove.

01/20/2019 - 6:41pm Once again, you inherent…

Once again, you inherent inability to apply facts in an evenhanded manner is completely lacking.

Just above this comment from you about the new AGs allegedly making some controversial comments that you view in the worst light is a comment from you about Englers well documented history or making inappropriate remarks demanding they be viewed in a positive light.

A light so absurdly positive that I dare suggest that Engler himself would be offended.

01/20/2019 - 6:37pm As I understand it, you are…

As I understand it, you are a mod.

Suggest to the powers that be a character minimum and maximum for headlines.

Then, we can all be spared literally thousands of annual comments complaining in Goldilocks fashion of headlines being just a little too long or just a little too short.

01/20/2019 - 6:34pm Well done ladies 

Well done ladies 

01/20/2019 - 6:25pm Why is it so hard for you to…

Why is it so hard for you to acknowledge that Engler and the MSU board was - and possibility is - what you find at the bottom of an outhouse at a DTE after a Gratetful Dead show?

01/20/2019 - 5:20pm Once again, your love for…

Once again, your love for Engler blimds you to pertinent facts.

Perles resigned on November 29th.

I am pretty sure that Engler knew almost a month after the election who the governor was going to be.

Keep swinging off his jockstrap though.

01/19/2019 - 1:34pm I wonder if Brasdakis still…

I wonder if Brasdakis still wants to play Duke?

01/19/2019 - 12:40pm Thanks for the answer.

I…

Thanks for the answer.

I have feeling we are very very close to a situation where all transfers will routinely have immediate eligibility. For good or ill, teams will end up having to work the portal nearly as much as they do high school recruiting.

Need an OT? Scour the portal. 

I suspect we are right on the cusp of this and I don’t want Michigan left behind.

01/19/2019 - 11:34am Magnus, I have a question if…

Magnus, I have a question if you are in a position to answer- now that the use of the NCAA transfer portal has seemingly exploded in just a few months, is there someone on staff assigned to monitor it basically 24/7?

I’m not so much asking about Michigan players who might leave, but also do monitor other players who might be of use on our team.

Do you know how this works? Is there someone assigned to view game films on transfers in the portal to assess whether they might be of help?

 

Thanks

While I agree with you, most on this blog failed your “knowledge test” and were rooting for OSU v Maryland.

01/18/2019 - 1:14pm So these tournaments get…

So these tournaments get roughly twice the viewership of American Idol or the other singing competition shows.

Would you be in favor of competitive Karaoke then?

01/18/2019 - 1:08pm You have to be kidding me…

You have to be kidding me. This is insane.

01/17/2019 - 10:16pm You are contradicting…

You are contradicting yourself and accidentally buttressing my argument.

If the movement of a single player to a different time zone can affect interest and viewership this much it’s proof that the product sucks.

You even admit a Knicks Wizards matchup sucks. It’s basically glorified WWE with a ball and a hoop.

By the way, when previous iterations of the Lakers were the epicenter of the NBA you did not hear excuses about time zones.

01/17/2019 - 9:17pm They could also try playing…

They could also try playing basketball.

I’m going to go all “get off my lawn” here but when I was a kid in the 70s, there was basketball and then the touring Harlem Globetrotters.

Kids loved the Globetrotters. Trick shots. Curly Neal making improbable half court shots on the regular. Clowning  the refs and the other team.

However, everyone knew the Globetrotters weren’t a team they were showmen. Actors playing roles in simulated games.

Largely, in the past 40 years, basketball has disappeared on the professional level and now there are 32 versions of the Globetrotters.

The fans have noticed.

01/17/2019 - 4:55pm Feel free to recharacterize…

Feel free to recharacterize Warde's conduct in this manner in any way you wish, but it was shameful.

01/17/2019 - 3:30pm Why isn't Warde speaking on…

Why isn't Warde speaking on this? 

It's 100% his fuckup the way this was handled. 

Warde's responses:

1. Try to hide behind weak PR statement

2. Try to hide behind the gymnast's skirts

3. Try to hide behind Plocki's skirt

Warde fucked this up by not holding a press conference, and he's fucking up again not standing up and taking the heat for this. He should be answering for this, not Plocki.

01/16/2019 - 12:43pm If this is true and Engler…

If this is true and Engler is out can someone please put Section 1.8 on suicide watch?

01/16/2019 - 12:40pm Can I summarize this with a…

Can I summarize this with a European military history comparison?

We are France. A once upon a time Empire which could rival any on earth. Numerous colonies. Great achievements in architecture and art. Class all the way. Even our most venerated Emperors or Kings are not tremendously as despised as those of other vast former empires.

OSU is Germany. They come along and ruthlessly kick our asses whenever they feel like it. They take over our cultural centers and museums and while they gaze at the ancient art we possess, they aren’t quite sure what it is and certainly do not understand it. They end up trying to steal it or trade it for a cooler or a spittoon.

Of course as France, we mount a dedicated and token resistance. Hiding in basements and church vestibules, singing the old songs and remembering the days of past glory. All the while hoping and praying that one day the siege of the culturally primitive Germans ends.

Then, one shining day, there is an invasion of the beaches. The Germans fight, but are outmanned and outschemed. We celebrate the great victory and barely notice the markings on the tanks chasing the Germans back to Germany.

Those tanks are labeled SEC or sometimes ACC.

How about we change history and next time kill the Germans ourselves?

 

01/16/2019 - 8:04am No.

One of the differences…

No.

One of the differences between us and OSU and MSU is we aren’t as obsessed with them as they are with us.

Can you imagine a scenario where we kick OSUs ass for two decades and still cared about them?

 

Hell if that happened we would be petitioning the B1G office to put another game at the end of the season.

01/15/2019 - 10:39pm On hockey. The NHL has a…

On hockey. The NHL has a draft lottery like the NBAs. It isn’t quite as weighted as the NBAs so teams from far down can and do win it.

Having said that, I also want the Wings to lose.

As far as Hughes goes, he didn’t have a great WJC so he may have slipped a bit in the draft order.

01/15/2019 - 5:51pm It is fairly obvious that…

It is fairly obvious that Engler saw that UM had taken some of the negative publicity for the Nassar scandal away from MSU by hiring Faehn. He wasn’t going to stand for not getting 100% of the well deserved scorn, so he had to tweak and disrespect the victims to try and grab all the bad PR from wannabees like Warde.

01/14/2019 - 3:25pm Anytime you have an…

Anytime you have an opportunity to get connected to Samoan defensive lineman, do it.

01/14/2019 - 2:43pm Lighten up, Francis 

Lighten up, Francis

I count OSU football as fully professional 

01/14/2019 - 11:54am Why are you only counting…

Why are you only counting the Blue Jackets as .5?

01/14/2019 - 11:23am I'm willing to bet that the…

I'm willing to bet that the Kardashian's main house has her beat several times over.

01/13/2019 - 11:17am Here is my two question job…

Here is my two question job interview for a future DL coach:

In the event that a defensive lineman realized his pass rush isn’t going to get him to the quarterback, should he be coached to get his hands up and try and tip passes?

If you are facing a mobile quarterback, is it a viable defensive strategy to not attempt to sack the quarterback, but to instead try to collapse the pocket around him and force him to throw?

For all the deserved props we all gave Greg Mattison through the years, I have always been amazed how our DL has always seemed to treat a thrown pass like it was a shotgun blast. We have also had huge problems keeping certain qbs in the pocket as we all know.

01/12/2019 - 7:38pm Wins and losses as your only…

Wins and losses as your only criteria ends up with you being MSU or OSU.

01/12/2019 - 7:36pm Not currently under…

Not currently under indictment is the hiring and admittance standard at MSU.

We are supposed to be better than that.

Way fucking better.
