stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser

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
Well Bailey is on campus right now, so on to the next one.Why is he sideways?
the Cool Runnings haircut. Feel the rhythm feel the rhyme get out the way it's bobsled time!
Football is both an identity and a terminal illness. A rhythm and a chaos and an opiate for the mind all at once.

definitely didn't originate with or become popularized by Cool Runnings....

Patrick Ewing wonders if you are serious..
On the fifth night—possibly the sixth—a breeze arose.
It was cool and dewy.
Is McQuay with him?
It's the same old story. Boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girls dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day.
I should also give love to Tom VH, I got the picture off of twitter!
Is he in the 1993 recruiting class or did fades come back and no one let me know? Perhaps house party 4: Next Class.
I guess you didn't get the memo, but the fade has made a triumphant return. Please do not read into that thinking there's sarcasm, I am being very serious. I see it on a daily basis as of late.
Obviously, you haven't seen his highlights film. If you had, you would know he's like Spiderman and can walk on almost any surface.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
Didn't he just finish visiting ND? Those coaches know how to not-so -subtlely make their point.
No real surprise here, Izzo has been recruiting him for bball for awhile.
Denard has spent the offseason working really hard and smiling at people.
he can play baseball too!! That's fantastic!
I guess he will fit in their new all-receiver offense seeing something like their last 5 commits have been WRs or TEs.
Seriously though, on the bright side, at least Michigan coaches found out early and have time to focus on other prospects.
Unfortunately for them we're now using DBs again at Michigan.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.

Good for them! Win some (most) lose some!
I wonder if he will really play both sports. Few can do that successfully.
With the new rules allowing college basketball coaches to work with their kids more during the summer, athletes choosing to play both football and basketball will probably find it even more challenging.
Every hour the basketball coach is allowed to spend with him, that's an hour he won't be able to spend on informal workouts with the football team.
Meh. We have plenty of fish to fry, them, not so much.
mmm fried fish
“When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing” - Bo Schembechler
He can now get an early jump on the football teams mandatory steroid use program.
Seriously good pull for them. Good kid, great talent and excellent work all around on their parts. Surprised by Spartys ability to get such good skill players. I wonder who heads up their recruiting in that segment.
OT but somewhat relevant... Monte Morris 2013 PG from State champs Flint Beecher has verbally committed to Iowa State. Morris was offered by M. Congrats to Monte Morris
Well, there is no doubt that Michigan State will have some solid receivers for the next 5 years. I'm happy we have guys that can cover.
You could have Megatron running aroung out there, but it won't do you any good if you can't protect the QB. Perhaps MD should stop recruiting like Matt Millen drafted.
Now that my suspicion has been confirmed, time to mow the lawn in 100 degree weather. Nothing like diverting my "FINE. BE THAT WAY" mentality towards a hot date with a push-mower and a bunch of weeds.
Honestly though, it's too early to care too much. Congrats, Harris. See you in three years or somethin'.
Oh well.....go get Mr. Webb and this will be forgotten in 2 mins.
Is Sam Webb going to play wide receiver for us?
that's his gut feeling
This is a big loss, but I have a feeling we will be alright. No question he is a valuable prospect, but if we can wrap up Bailey or Treadwell this year, and get a quality reciever or two next year, then this won't sting at all.
I think people keep forgetting that he will probably eventually go down to just one sport. He's a great football and basketball player, but he's not THAT amazing in either one individually. Together, he's amazing, but if he eventually goes down to just one, I don't think this is as big of a loss as most assume. I don't like that he's going to MSU, but like I said, I think this won't matter as much as many think
He is still a top 100 prospect regardless of whether he goes to just one sport or not. I don't think this will kill us by any means. I still think we get McDowell and Booker in basketball. However, we still just lost a top tier instate kid. Will it kill us? no. But like it or not it is a loss, we will recover no dount though.
Harris is obviously a great high school player, and could very well be a star in EL, but no single recruit or player is bigger than the University of Michigan football team. I hope he does great at MSU, as long as he never wins a game against Michigan.
Does anyone else think the Spartans maybe using? I have a buddy of mine who is an ER doc who swears he is convinced some of their players are on PEDs because of some odd lab values from ER visits. I have to say their kids are huge - middling three stars who put on a lot of weight rather quickly.
I guess time will tell but his suspicion got me thinking. Just look at game film and on the defensive side of the ball especially it will seem plausible.
Alternatively our strength and conditioning the last few years could just suck.
Magnus you might know the answer to this...
No offense, but this is stupid.
None taken honestly
Wow, you are really going out on a limb here.
If they are, then the Wisconsin offensive line is DEFINITELY on something.
Joking aside, I don't know you or your ER doc, but this means nothing to me.
Bratwursts and lots and lots of cheese
Don't be an idiot. Speculating on something like that is right up there with things I see on spartan and buckeye blogs.
I would be lying if I said the thought hasn't crossed my mind.
You know, Dude, I myself dabbled in pacifism once. Not in 'Nam of course.
I think an easy way to determine if this is true is to observe weight gain over springs and summers if they are truthful. It just appears to me that the dramatic size difference over two seasons for their players is just surprising.
I'm not saying it particularly matters but people like Magnus will come on and say things such as "this is normal weight gain in any off season conditioning program". But it just appears that they have had a dramatic size change of late.
It means nothing in terms of performance against us - that I concur with.
I kind of am scarred from the steroid era in baseball. Whenever someone does something way beyond the norm, I think that there PED's being used. I know it isn't fair and that some people do it right. But take for example Tiger Woods. Not many people know that the PGA Tour started testing for steroids a couple years ago, right before Tiger won his last U.S. Open and had a bad knee and Tiger was linked with that Dr. that prescribed some steroids to other athletes. Well now Tiger isn't the same, say what you will about his cheating but maybe he was using steroids as well. I look at MSU in almost the same way. They kind of just come out of nowhere to have two 11-2 seasons and their defense has become a powerhouse based on 3 stars. I know ratings can be overrated but it comes to a point where you question this. If I recall, history has shown that PED's could be used here as well. Wasn't the last time MSU was in the Rose Bowl the team got in trouble with steroids under Perle's reign?
because the key to being a good golfer is to be as muscular as possible.
Steroids in baseball & golf (and most other sports besides football) are not about gaining muscle mass. They are used to speed recovery. REF: PETTITE AND CLEMENTS, in addition to almost every other baseball player who used.

We're not arrogant, we're just better.
IDK. That's quite the speculation. A lot of people accused Gholston of being juiced last fall after trying to take out Denard. If he would have tested positive, we'd have known by now. This talk isn't mgoblog material.
Maybe I'm wrong, but isn't PED testing almost nonexistant in college football?
is usually done at NCAA championship events. In-season testing by the NCAA is done by randomly drawing a school, randomly drawing a sport and randomly drawing athletes (x/341, x/8 and x/115, I'm assuming those x's aren't big numbers [they test three for softball, from the experience I know of]).
That said, pretty much every school does their own testing and MSU would be risking some very very serious sanctions if it didn't report a positive PED test to the NCAA.
