Is Caris Levert passed out back there too?
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
I'm just interested in the shirt. Ondre Pipkins caught a no-doubt exhausted Frank Clark catching some uncomfortable-looking Zs at something or another. As a man who slept through most of AP Bio in high school I have no leg to stand on as far as criticism of that activity. I'm just interested in his shirt:
EARN THE RIGHT TO RUSH 4
That would be nice.
And the shoes. Dr. Sap puts together a history of Michigan's shoes.
It's more interesting than it sounds. Before Nike came in in 1983, Michigan had seven different suppliers!
It's halftime. Jabrill Peppers has 20 minutes. He's already fixed your car, dated your daughter respectfully, and optioned a screenplay, so it's time to get props from Naughty By Nature:
“I would always hear about [Jabrill], and it was kind of like we let him do his thing and now he’s surfacing on his own. That was the first time I had heard him rap, I didn’t even know he had a crew like that,” he said. “I watched the video and listened to the song and it is really good. Jabrill’s song is like a throwback to ’90’s hip hop and I was like, ‘Wow, I’m really impressed.’ ”
In the time it took you to read that blockquote, Jabrill Peppers made crostini, pulled invasive garlic mustard out of an acre of parkland, and charged your phone. No, he didn't plug it into the wall.
Stick ball sports. Baseball got swept out of the Big Ten tournament, completing a promising first season for Eric Bakich. Michigan was vastly young this year, with just four seniors on the team: three relievers and Eric Biondi. With most of the best players underclassmen and a strong recruiting class coming in, baseball should be on an upward swing. Unfortunately, they'll probably lose slugger Michael O'Neill, who's projected to go somewhere in the first four rounds.
As you may know from the wince-inducing, nonsensical, miserable puns in your inbox…
Alumni Field Will Be Ragin' (& Cajun) This Weekend - Time To BUY(OU) Tickets
We're Jumba-LAY-ing It On Thick - Don't Miss The SOUP-er Regional This Weekend
…softball takes on Louisiana-Lafayette starting… uh… in a couple hours. If you're around and free, tickets are reasonably priced. If you're not, it's on ESPNU. Tomorrow's game is at noon, on plain ol' ESPN, with an if-necessary third game scheduled for ESPN at 3. Winner hits the WCWS. In the face with a bat.
"No, WE'RE going to murder the language more." Fed up with recruits claiming to be committed to schools they have no chance of actually signing with, schools fire back with offers that aren't anything like offers:
Alabama’s scholarship offers at some positions, most notably quarterback, are non-committable and pending an evaluation at summer camp.
The non-committable offer. Everything is a lie. This is a society that takes true things, hits them in the head with shovels, buries them neck-deep in turds, and waits for the tide to come in. This is called right-shoveling. All of everything is false and wrong and a lie. These words are random assemblages of symbols that have no inherent meaning. I cannot communicate at all, there is no meaning, I am floating in that crazy sad void in that one Death Cab song on that album I can't listen to for reason of not wanting to kind of want to put my face in a bathtub of water.
This may be an overreaction.
IT WAS NOT AN OVERREACTION. Charlie Weis got bought out for 19 million dollars. Oh hai meaningless Death Cab void.
Carl Hagelin has powers. Spooky powers:
GOOD EFFORT TRY WIN FIGHT. MLive asks what trolling is, discovers it is trolling. Revelations!
For example, when MSU fans post things like "LOL Walmart Wolverine skunk weasels" or when U-M fans post things like "LOL little brother" nothing is added to the conversation.
They are counseling commenters to ignore people who bother them, which if followed will reduce comments to four per article, all of them from me fighting with myself.
Marlin scouting Gordon. Thomas, that is. And how:
"Thomas Gordon could be a really good player," Jackson said during a recent interview. "If you look at him physically, he's everything you could want in an NFL safety."
"But I would just like to see him become more aggressive, when he's coming to make plays on the football and closing on open-field tackles," Jackson said. "Little things, but big things."
Etc.: Iowa loses a Ufer-equivalent. White House gets down with voracity. Everything you need to know about the Champions League final and horses. Toussaint "fired up" to keep his job, maybe play behind a line that will get him more than two inches of space. Denard can run man. How the pants was he still available in the fifth round man.
Is Caris Levert passed out back there too?
Unsure about the passed out part. 50-50 shot.
Looks more like he is looking down at a phone to me
He's going to need to pack on about 100 lbs before challenging for playing time...
Since Brian posted a link to political article, can we now offer our political opinions?
If so, I might say something about how words lost their meaning long before Saban came up with the non-committable offer.
Mgoblog community and create spinoffs to be known as FoxMgoBlog and Cmgoblog. Moderates can follow lacrosse.
is beyond amazing. Everyone should read.
I can't wait for the day I finally get on one knee in front of the woman of my dreams and say, "Will you marry me? But you can't say yes yet."
That would be subject to an evaluation of her performance at your "summer camp?"
When Jabrill Peppers commits on Sunday will it be the Muppets or Naughy by Nature?
Or maybe Brian can get the Muppets to do OPP, Hip Hop Hurray or Feel Me Flow? Now that would be awesome.
But there seems to be a ridiculous amount of Muppet rap videos out there.
some of the naysayers will come back here and issue some serious public mea culpas. . . along with the press, etc.
Terrible headline, but former UM walk-on hockey player Luke Glendening has been playing VERY well for the GR Griffins:
Hockey's version of Kovacs?
in the baseball item: Coach Bakich's first name is spelled Erik, not Eric. And Biondi's first name is Patrick (again not Eric).
So Eric Cook made a couple of errors in this article.
somebody on the team is named Eric? Let's just call them all Eric, it would be so much easier.
I don't follow women's hoops, so I have no point of reference, but $1,144,000 seems very high for a women's basketball coach. Yes? No?
I'm also 50/50 on whether Caris is sleeping or checking out his phone. I used to work with someone who regularly fell asleep at his desk. I called him out on it a few times, and the response was always the same..."I wasn't sleeping. I was looking at my phone." His best "sleeping at the desk" position was when he fell asleep and the only thing keeping him upright in his chair was that he had his teeth balanced on the top of a water bottle. (yes, I do have a picture of it)
ND's Muffet McGraw is considered one of the top women's basketball coaches, and ND is one of the elite programs in the sport. Her salary is in line with other top coaches. See this chart (somewhat outdated).
Coincidentally, McGraw just got a commitment today from a top 5 player in the 2014 class.
Makes me think of that poor lady like this:
Man, the Jags' website is a lot better than the Lions'
Frank Clark’s T is sick and again shows the good leadership we have on this team. It is a constant reminder of the privilege to get meaningful snaps for the DL and encourages the rest of the D to get it to the down and distance to let these guys pin their ears back. Speaks to the Coaches competence in recognizing and addressing a big weakness in getting to the QB last year. With WE ON, RISE TO THE OCCASION and now this, I wonder if Mich had some consultant come in help or if it is just a sign of the strong coaching staff we have.
Either way well done Hoke and Beilein because it is sweet for the fans too.
"Hold the Rope"
That's a new way to explain Rich Rod's failures.

I'm sad every time we lose one of these great old radio guys...they were the voice of their programs in a way that's hard for anyone that's grown up in the cable age to understand. As late as the early 80s, at best there were only one or two games per year, per school, on TV. And Ann Arbor (or Iowa City or Athens or...) was hundreds of miles away. All we had was the radio.
Is Jabrill Peppers the next Brian Boitano? I could totally see him using his magical fire breath to save the maidens fair.
so which one is it?!
