I would rather be the coach at Houston than at Illinois.
Really? I don't think they are much alike at all. They play different positions, Raekwon is A LOT bigger, and was more college ready.
He did? His best record was 10-4. The previous coach, Dennis Erickson, had a best of 11-1 and went 8-5 the year before Riley was there. Which also happens to be better than the majority of Riley's seasons. Riley didn't take them anywhere that Erickson hadn't already. Erickson actually won a Pac title while Riley topped at tying for second.
I agree with you that he'll run a clean program, but they downgraded in coaching talent. And Pelini wasn't a world-beater.
He's likeable, but I think he's an average coach.
Purdue is a great school. Not a good athletic conference member.
That play against Penn State is still the most ridiculous sports move I've seen live. No other player in the nation could have made that same play.
This. I lurk and pass out helmet stickers. I also miss Pam quite a bit. She was sort of the board's resident female voice of wisdom. Not many users stick out to me over the years, although Denny and Hodge have always cracked me up. Denny still has my favorite comment of all time in this thread:
This was somewhat useful:
You sir...are amazing
I wouldn't necessarily say Webb is faster than Burrows. Cam is a ridiculous athlete and the staff mentioned speed as an area they want Webb to improve. Webb is also on the smaller end so he may not have the brute physicality needed. Impossible to say except by the staff.
I don't think you understand, kids aren't necessarily looking for a program that fans think is acceptable. They're looking for a program they feel comfortable with since this is likely the biggest decision of their life to this point. Try to keep up.
I vote Pam as one of the justices.
Ramzy basically said, "you'll never find his body."
Kid is obviously an athlete. I wonder how fast he is compared to top level kids here, though. I'm not seeing a ton of athleticism on that field.
Bass, first off thanks for your willingness to share and seek help. That's the best choice you can make. Second, as many above have said, cling to the things and people you love and that bring even small slices of joy into your life. You aren't alone, no matter how you may feel.
We haven't beaten anyone.
I'm starting to honestly think that he doesn't know what he's doing. Some of the stuff he posts is just bizarre.
I feel compelled to add a comment here. I've been a member for quite a long time and I don't post nearly as much as I used to, but I'm still on every day. I still read, observe, and cast upvotes a ton and I've often upvoted M Man. When I felt he added a reasonable, well-written comment, he had my support. I can't stand the fans who downvote someone just because they are a Michigan fan before they even read the comment. It's ridiculous and is what you see on MGoBlog with OSU fans. That being said, I think M Man got too comfortable here and relied too much on the welcoming nature of this community. It seemed that early on, he was more respectful and thoughtful, but as he grew accustomed to users welcoming and even upvoting him, he let his inner jerk out. He earned this suspension and Ramzy made the correct call. This is a great site with an awesome staff and community. Thank you, Ramzy, for keeping preserving it.
Just like the face hugger in Alien.
For real, though, I'm an analyst working primarily with Kidnap and Ransom Insurance.
I robs drug dealers.
This. Doran Grant will likely have a faster 40. Devin won't finish in the top 5. He isn't a 4.3 guy, he's more like a 4.4. His strength is that he loses almost no speed with pads on.
