"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
The article talks about the genius of Harbaugh setting up satellite camps down south, and his overall media and promotion strategy. It reads like a fan letter about Coach Harbaugh.
I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
For those who haven't seen it yet, it's a nice little video on ESPN lauding Gardner and sportsmanship in general.
And here's a Freep appreciation article on Gardner as well:
I've never been a huge fan of Kid Rock, but his response to Susan Tompor's Free Press article on his "Made in Detroit" clothing line has me reevaluating that.
Too bad DB couldn’t have opened with the same line as Kid Rock back during the Freep Jihad presser..
KID'S RESPONSELet me first start off by cordially inviting you to go fuck yourself. I have always said that I do care what people in my hometown think of me, and the hatchet job you have just written about The Made In Detroit company in The Detroit Free Press has made me so upset that I am left with no choice but to defend myself and my company.
Dear Susan Tompor,
Is it just me or is Michael Rosenberg correct on his article. He claims MSU has to lose for Michigan to win the division.
I thought if there was a three way tie, that Michigan would win on overall record as Nebraska and MSU would each have two losses. Am I wrong here, does it go to big 10 record first and that's what would put MSU in with a three way tie.

I'm not posting this to bash the Freep or to increase the odds that Section 1 blows an O-ring, although I think the guy is probably at risk for that. Maybe someone could modify his hosts file and redirect him to something happy.

Brady Hoke comments (in MGoBlog's Favorite Newspaper) on Tressel:
Regular version, in case the Print one expires:
His remarks seemed too unrehearsed and off-the-cuff for my taste. Just saying Tressel is a "good man" (however preposterous that might be to some) and a "good coach" (much more supportable) would be fine.
But adding "... they'll fight through that situation ..." and then "... I don't know that situation ..." is, at best, awkward. Why say anything like that? Certain other coaches at UMich have been tattooed for being "unpolished."
One wonders what Corporate Guy Brandon (who would not be expected to shoot from the hip) thought when reading that.
