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?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
I laughed out loud at least twice.
Great work by Tremendous on this one..
I would love to hear some of his fishing stories.
"I'm not a vegetarian b/c I love animals. I'm a vegetarian b/c I hate plants"
It was an incredibly powerful fish. Reminded me of Mike Hart, only faster.
Oh how I hate ohio state...
Against Bama. This is good news. Also means he did the time.
"We want the Big 10 championship. And we’re going to win it as a TEAM"
Fred just said that he's preparing Fitz as if he was going to; he doesn't know what Hoke plans to do and actually has no clue (or at least no clue he'll give us) as to who will start/play vs. 'bama.
This is exhibit A of how rumors get started.
That's not what it says. Jackson is preparing him to play against Bama, but does not yet know if Hoke will let him.
You're right that no one knows yet what will happen, but it sure seems like he's going to play. Sounds like Hoke is giving him the opportunity to show his commitment and do his penance in order to play, and I have to imagine Fitz is going to go above and beyond in order to get in that game. He's always seemed like a guy that's got his head on straight and is serious about the team. Just made a dumb mistake that a lot of intelligent people have made before. I'll understand either way.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.

I hope you are right, and there is a lot that's keeping me positive, but I was just addressing what Jackson actually said.
msu or ohio? Nice try sparty troll..
Go Blue !!
Never ever ever ever capitalize ohio or say the state word. They don't deserve either. They are douchers, almost to the level of Dantonio. I will tell my uncle to quit banging your mom, because she is no longer worthy after producing you. Go home!
[Caved troll is caved. Sorry, Mobile app users.]
Sparty Troll? Everything he posted was true. If Michigan State or Ohio State had a starter with a DUI we would be ripping them if the starter got no discipline. And if there was any discipline for an Ohio State player, people on here would be going on about "Meyer is just freeing up a scholarship" or some other BS
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?
StraightDave owes me a steak dinner
Say I disagree with what he said..I simply said MSU is msu,and Ohio State is ohio..Calm the fuck down.
that you also called him a Sparty troll.
Eating is murder.
Looks like you're the one who needs to calm down, bud.
I disagree with you because your premise is completey off base. We know for a fact that Fitz has already (and is currently) being punished, so saying he is getting away without being punished is not accurate in the least.
If this had happened during the season and he didn't miss a game I would agree with you, but it didn't, and it left BH a lot of time to hand out his discipline without having the need to hold him out of a game. And before you continue on your rant about how I would react if this was an ohio or msu player, I said the same thing about Michael Floyd last year...Kelly had plenty of time before the start of the saeason to punish him without having to keep him out of game action (whether he did is another story).
Everything we know about BH tells us he takes violations of team rules (and players breaking the law) very seriously, so if he says Fitz and Clark are paying the price now...I believe him.
I guess it just comes down to whether or not you think missing a week of half-practices and running stairs is adequate for a DUI. I don't think it is, and if Fitz plays against Bama there's gonna be some flak, and defending that is going to sound a lot like ND homers telling us "No, Michael Floyd did get punished. He lost his captaincy and had to do community service and ran a bunch".
At the end of the day, I think the only way to say if the punishment was adequate is to see if it happens again. If we are having this discussion again next year, we will know that it wasn't enough. On the other hand, I would hate to think that the team lost a winnable game over the defending national champs because of a mistake made by one person.
Oh how I hate Ohio State
This is classic homer rationalization. A DUI should merit, at the very least, a one- or two-game suspension. There's no way around it. Anything else is just Dantonioism.
Where did you get that? He said he's preparing him to play against 'Bama and that Hoke still hasn't made a decision yet. Unless I'm missing glaring /s, you, sir, are wrong.
but even more, his optimism. That man is FIRED UP about the possibilities, FIRED UP about each and every one of those running backs!
In defense of Norfleet, he's not short. He's concentrated awesome!
"The goal, the expectation of this program is the Big Ten Championship"
yea, love that quote:
"Norfleet could run right underneath that table going full speed and won't hit his head"
Yeah, the two most comical segments of Jackson quotage for me were the Norfleet quote and the Hopkins bit where he stated he "nearly said something he shouldn't have." Whether he said it or not, I most definitely heard it in my head. And it was friggin' hilarious. Samuel L. Jackson style.
Fred Jackson Sr. is the Most Confident Man in the World.
"Run Angry my Friends."
Great piece really by Tremendous, and of course, the fact that the interviewee is Fred Jackson makes it great.
Personal favorite (not alone in this, I see from other comments):
Regarding Norfleet: "Norfleet could run right underneath that table going full speed and won't hit his head."
There is no other person on that staff that could have come up with that, I think. I laughed quite a bit.
I do like that Fred seems very upbeat about the possibilities and potential at this position, however. It sounds like Jackson already has a pretty good idea of where he wants Hopkins, Rawls, Fitz etc...but then, these are excellent problems to have. Especially when the Alabama game is still not for a few weeks, it is good to hear that some players are practicing like they want to play Alabama (his words regarding Hopkins).
Specifically about Fitz, I like the fact that Fred will prepare him as if he will play against Alabama even if he may not - for the time being really, all the better for when he does get into the mix if you prepare for Alabama from the start.
"Funny isn't it, how naughty dentists always make that one fatal mistake."

I love that Fred pointed to something that the reader of the interview has no way of seeing.
...I'm not at all disappointed with Rawls as the starter. The kid impresses me and I don't think the thought of playing Alabama will intimidate him. I also can't wait to see Norfleet in return duties. He can really scoot.
I hate to see us pigeon hole him as a pure return specialist. I would think Borges has a real weapon on his hands in Dennis if he chooses.
