How come your headline is misleading, especially when you make a point of the fact that he was about to be fired? The facts are that M didn't "hire away" the OC, right?
I don't quite understand on what grounds they plan to sue. It doesn't seem like they have much of a case.
That'll change now. A player would rather have a defense handy for getting suspended up to a year even if it means getting reamed by the coach for underage drinking.
You should see him as an angry drunk. Totally opposite -- not so fun-loving and carefree.
What else he supposed to say once he's caught, right? If he knew something was slipped to him he should've told somebody, maybe even get independently tested. I wonder if coach's have a protocol for something like this. Unfortunately, they probably should.
If you lose, the obvious conclusion is that you have to get better. Unless you're the NC, then you have to get better. Even then, unless you played the perfect game, you have to get better. No shame in that sentiment. No shame in the loss.
We can't win every game. And if we lose, sometimes it's just because the other team was better that day or better every day. It happens. We're lucky -- not really luck -- that it doesn't happen as much to us as it does to others. The sun will rise tomorrow. And so will Urban et al. I'm sure he's as dissatisfied with the results as we are -- and knows more than us what to do about it. (Then again, maybe not, maybe hiring him was a huge mistake -- him and his padded resume!)
"Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment." -- Benjamin Franklin
Yeah, it's easy to assume everything is under our team's control, when obviously it's not. We could do everything right and still lose to a better team, right? That's what happens when we win, right? We never say our wins were just the result of our opponents mistakes.
There's no shame in losing as long as the effort -- and the sportsmanship -- is there. You play the games to see who's really better. Win, or lose, with class.
Yeah, idiots ARE everywhere. I don't know where the notion started that if you're a fan, or buy a ticket, it gives the right to say anything you want or behave in any way you want. There's always a line that shouldn't be crossed that most of us can agree upon. More of us sane, civil guys have to join together and say "Enough!" Not so easy on twitter, but at ball games, or even on the street, it's time good people slapped down these yahoos.
"All it takes for evil to win, is for good men to do nothing."
This loss hurts. The last loss hurt. But we were in it both games and could've won. We're a good team that needs to get better -- especially on defense. The team plays hard and shows up for every game, but came up against two teams that played better. That's why you play the games. To see who's better. There's no shame in losing an Orange Bowl, especially in a game that could've been won. Yeah, it hurts to lose, but we made it this far and that's more than 99.9% of teams can claim.
I have faith in Meyer to get us the last step of the way...quickly. Go Bucks!
I see your point, but don't forget the nature of the crimes: the systemic grooming and raping of you boys using the back drop of the PSU football program. Sure there's room for improvement -- no rape, or knowing rules violations, should go unpunished, but what happened at PSU goes well beyond the pale and they deserved the punishment -- I for no other reason than to send the message that the reputation of the school, or school's football program, is NOT more important the scarred lives of innocent victims.
Even Bo wasn't a "Michigan Man." He was born and raised in Ohio. He coached Miami of Ohio before going to Michigan. Nobody even knows where that term came from. It just sprung up to undermine RR. Probably a Lloyd Carr invention.
According to Arizona's AD: "Byrne said Tuesday that Meyer told him hiring Rodriguez would be bringing in one of the "five best football minds" in college football."
Take a look at Hoke's first bowl victory against Virginia Tech. It was a win, but you couldn't say the team looked like a well-coached team. It's been apparent since his first year that he's just not a very good coach. He's not involved with the offense or defense, so his main job is left to motivation. But his teams repeatedly come out playing flat and sloppy -- even after three years, and even though it's stocked with four- and five-star recruits. RR was fired after three years having the same record, but his record was trending up. Hoke's record is trending down and there is no indication with how this season progressed that the trend is some sort of anomaly.
Not true. Woody had teams that could pass. Bo lived in the past too -- like most ttun fans -- and never accepted the fact that the forward pass wasn't a passing fad. That's why his teams could rarely beat the good teams.
If you compare their records you'll see that the student never came close to matching his teacher.
A donut instead of the cd might work!
That's their problem: living in the past. Even the past they want to get back to -- the much vaunted Bo years -- never produced a NC. Not only that, but Bo was an unimaginative, predictable coach: decent but not top tier.
If he doesn't want to run so much, it's up to him to further develop his passing skills. Yeah, the team has running backs on scholarship, but they also have wide receivers on scholarship that they'd love to get the ball to more often. The ball's in his court.
Maybe somebody should get Kwon the dude's address. I sure would like to see that meeting!
The gifs in the comments here are the funniest, most creative things I've every encountered on my wide travels on the internets! Kudos Bucks!
You made the right choice, Kwon!
Great prank! So classy it's hard to top. (It's too easy to destroy things. Any idiot -- e.g. Harvey Updyke -- can do it.)
He had me at "cromulent."
Forgive me I digress, but FWIW: I just learned that ^^^ is called a lipogram: a written work composed to avoid the use of specific alphabetic characters. (Or lipogra_, on this site!) according to the Word of the Day I got emailed to me the other day.
Who knew there was a word for it?
Agree with this. The defense's shortcomings were nothing new and, in fact, early in the second half we took the lead and the offense seemed poised to take over. So the game was definitely winable despite the defense.
Horrible play-calling. When the tv announcers know that Braxton gets the call whenever there's an empty backfield formation -- and they're right -- AND the same play is called repeatedly....that's not on the defense.
