I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
My favorite is the heat Musberger is taking on twitter after commenting on McCarrons girlfriend. lmao
So we watch full set of commercials to see a kick off then back to full set of commercials. GG

Awesome tweet by Kate Upton
almost equally certainly not a top 5 team
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAnddd here come the referees to help Notre Dame save face!
HOKEAMANIA RUNNIN' WILD
I didn't see a hold there. If the refs wanted to control the game, they should have done it from the start.
Michigan football's place in the universe. I'm glad we've been recruiting well of late because we're going to need it.
Whole 'nother level: Alabama
Higher level: LSU, Oregon
Probably higher level: Ohio
'Old school programs that should be on the higher level; won't take much for them to return: USC, Texas, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame
Plethora of other 'new school' programs that have sniffed the higher level: Texas A&M, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Stanford, South Carolina
Other stuff/who knows/recently good (in BCS): Virginia Tech, Georgia, Arkansas, Auburn, Wisconsin, Louisville, Clemson, West Virginia
And I haven't even mentioned Penn State and Nebraska.
...where does Michigan land in all of this? Where are we headed?
We BELONG alongside Ohio. We should at least be lumped in with the Old School programs that are always "there." But unfortunately we're probably in the "other stuff" category thanks to the 2011 BCS win (so it could be worse). But there are over a dozen programs with comparable recent recruiting histories standing between us and being top-five elite.
I love the direction Hoke has the program headed in. I believe our coaching and recruiting will leapfrog us over everyone, into the "higher level." I envision Michigan, Ohio, ND, LSU, Stanford and Oregon being the "group of five" challengers to Alabama. I wouldn't be surprised to see this group occupy the BCS' new "Football Four" for the foreseeable future.
"Is there enough magic out there in the moonlight to make this dream come true?"
I'm not sure I'd include Oregon in there until after the NCAA investigation
Ya but what about STAEE?
Even ND + the Refs can't stop Alabama.
pull the starters after this drive?
I want to see their faces pounded into a jelly!
This is just too perfect. Love It's Always Sunny, love that episode. Well done.
"Oh no, no, I'm not in the group yet. No, I'm afraid I just blue myself."
#55 on ND just assaulting bitches
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
That's it, Herb. It's that sooo fast SEC speed that has made the Irish miss all these tackles.
Flight from South Bend to Miami: $786
Ticket to Game on Stubhub: $870
5* hotel near Stadium for 2 nights: $1,026
Look on Notre Dame fans faces in stands? Priceless.

Brian Kelly's gameplan is just murdering his team tonight
I wonder if he is the one that said, "Keep throwing at that weak link Milliner."
#6 on ND just bounced off lacy like a pinball on that last drive
"What" ain't no country I ever heard of. They speak English in What?
I feel like a common theme whenever I watch Bama is always "that opposing defense is really starting to wear down" around the 4th quarter.
McCarron. QB 4
Yeldon. RB 5
Lacy. RB 4
Cooper. WR 4
Norwood. WR 4
Williams. TE. 4
Fluker. T 5
Warmack. G. 3
Jones. C. 4
Steen. G. 3
Kouandjio. T. 5
The recruits span from 5 yr guys to two true frosh so 5 years of classes with 2-3 per year.
My point: it will take several years of premium recruiting and solid development for us to return to elite status.

Who didn't see this coming? What was the 'Bama-UM score after 3?
ours was better.
Sorry, I blocked that game out of my memory.
Gotta hand it to Alabama, their OL is really in tune and well coached. They rarely miss a block and even when they do, they don't miss a beat finding the next relevant guy to block. Compared to our line where there are two to three OL looking around blocking air at the end of most run plays.
Lacy and Yeldon do a great job of making the first tackler miss.
"Maybe Alabama won't come out" - Your AP 2012 Coach of The Year
The person hating this game more than anybody has to be Teo. His draft stock is moving down with each missed tackle. My guess is that he won't be #2 on Mel's Big Board tomorrow morning.
Was he ever #2 on the "big board?"
EDIT: I just checked and he is. I guess he will move down now after this game.
He is right now.
He did not move down any board. The NFL does not judge guys on one game. They look at all of their games.

I'm so glad ND has been exposed as pretenders. I expected it to happen much earlier in the year.
That we remember the true struggle of Michigan football before Hoke and appreciate the rise back to prominence.
Saban is taking a pay cut to coach the BCS championship game.
He gets $100k to get to the game plus $200k to win it.
So hot. Milk was a bad choice.
McCarron to Cooper is going to be deadly next year
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?
StraightDave owes me a steak dinner
Cooper sure has short arms on deep balls. For everything else Bama has going for it he doesnt like laying out for passes.
Oh.....and how in the hell did Alabama lose a game this year?
to be honest im almost ok with ND being exposed as pretenders on the national stage like this. I mean, this is fantastic. Crap, I look away from the TV for 1 min and miss another 3 missed ND tackles
And THAT is what an A/A+ back will get you
Hey Syracuse. Really? You have interest in the ND defensive coordinator? Are you watching this game?
C'mon Bama. You got time to break 50 points
Brian Kelly is going to need a hug later.
USING GRATUITOUS AMOUNTS OF CAPS LOCK SINCE APRIL 2011
Or he could take out his frustration on his video coordinator
Yes! Fuck you again, Notre Dame.
I'm not gonna lie, I'm still disappointed it's not 48-0 right now.
