Football Display Case
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
"Jeff Withey shouldn't have called him Peter Dinklage, is all I'm saying."
this would be bad if it wasn't LIES
Drew Henson's career, or not quite career, or whatever.
“I’m more of a back-to-the-basket type of big man that rebounds a lot,” Swanigan said on Wednesday, describing his game. “I have a Zach Randolph type of game — that’s who I base my game off of. Being physical and playing with both hands on the rim.”
Gotta love this guy's moxie, and the nastiness of this team. I'm liking what I'm seeing...
Enough is enough imo. I love that they hate OSU and all but at this point just let it go. Adding more fuel to the fire like this is unecessary and a bit juvenile, even if he is just defending a future teammate.
COYS and Vive Le Rouge of Detroit FC!
he is 17
You have a point. Still, as a representative of the university, he should probably be held to higher standards. I'm not blaming him as much as I am frowning on the whole situation, but at the very least other Michigan fans shouldn't be congradulating him on this behavior.
Fuck that. I'm 28 and I still act juvenile. I don't care if he's going to U of M or not, these kids are exactly that, kids. They could be doing stuff way worse then trash talking a rival. Let the kids be kids. I still do.
I understand where you are coming from. Things blew up waaayyyyyy more then they ever should have. It's kids and some people forget that they like to have fun.
Glad to see these guys are coming together and sticking up for eachother, but this whole situation is one that I wouldn't mind putting behind us. It's time to move on.
You should change your signature.
Roy Roundtree will wear the number 21 before he leaves Michigan!
Staying until the 2012 season ends.
I would prefer not to see any of our recruits mentioning guns.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: June 17
I get the feeling that Bosch doesn't quite realize that anyone can see what he says on Twitter.
[Insert the obligatory "high-profile athletes should not be on Twitter" here]
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
Or he doesn't care. I also read the comment as the person making the threats should bring a gun as one would need it to bring him down. I did not take away that he had a gun. It's just like someone saying to an a-hole that threatens him to bring an army because they do not fear that a-hole
"Wasn't that Michigan drive just great. That's like Patton riding into Berlin." ~Bob Ufer
I thought that as well. People will definitely be taking that the wrong way and he will probably get in a little trouble. This is becomming overblown. Everyone needs to stop being so sensitive and the thing will blow over.
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.
hope he is referring to "guns" as body parts and not Sig Saurer's. If it is the latter, we are no better than they are. We do not need drive-bys in A2.
From the Red Cedar Message Board: "God hates us." Yes He does Lil Bro, yes he does. Everyone hates you.
I encourage you to speak for yourself. He was clearly referring to the need of whoever approached him to bring a gun. "Drive bys in A2"- I don't even know what this means, so again, please speak for yourself.
"we" need drive bys in A2? Lord help "us"
Probably better if he didn't say anything like that at all, but there's nothing wrong or illegal about that statement.
I never said there was anything illegal about it.
I said I would prefer if he didn't talk about guns.
I would actually expect that Hoke and Co. will give Kyle a talk about this. Its great he is sticking up for his fellow commit, but if he just left out that last mention of fire arms 99% of fans and alum would have been fine.
"We want the Big 10 championship. And we’re going to win it as a TEAM"
I dont like the line also, but he was fired up and trying to back his teammate. These are kids and may not be as mature about the right PC things to say. I support him fully, but lets back it up on the field.
Alex at 11W is saying how bad this is and playing to the fanbase while forgetting commetns from Billy Price. Way to be fair.
For people that are complaining about the talk from our recruits, please stop following these 16 and 17 year olds. right or wrong stop following them. Its just interesting that Ohio Sate fans are not talking about their recruits and the Justin Boren Costume at Halloween.
Edit : Basically I said the same thing as Leaders and Best further down.
You never know.. Those hillbillys just might be dumb enough to do something dumb.. Lets not encourage them.
the 13 class better be able to back this talk on the field because they are definitely firing up ohio fans and players. I hope there is some actually rage behind all this talk.
It kind of fires me up.
Who cares if they fire up the fans? If they get so riled up about this that they're sending death threats I say rile them up some more. It makes them look bad and they're losing a lot more sleep over it than anyone on our side. As far as riling up the Ohio players I'm of the oft repeated opinion that no one really needs bulletin board material for this game.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.
-Craig Roh 10/29/2011
I am forced to drive through ohio fairly ofter, I don't want to die.
WTF? These kids aren't toys for you to play with. If the fans are sending them death threats, then you want them riled up more? So our recruits can get threatened with death more? Or so they can be verbally and physically assaulted?
Get a grip, man. It's a sport. It's supposed to be fun.
Huh? I read my post again and fail to see how I suggested they are toys for me to play with... I'm saying the fans don't affect what happens on the field, so who cares if they get riled. It just makes their lives more miserable. A death threat over twitter is not that frightening to me, and it seems it's not that frightening to Bosch either.
When Kentucky sex offenders are showing up at your front door with weapons, you will change your mind.
It means these kids have feelings. They're not inanimate objects. Nobody wants to be subjected to death threats. So suggesting that OSU fans should be riled up more, and thus make more threats, is rather insensitive.
Saying that a 17-year-old commit to Michigan receiving death threats "just makes [OSU fans'] lives more miserable" is a completely moronic statement. If you can't see why, that's a problem.
I know that there are a lot of Ohio fans who are over 250 pounds. I still find it hard for them to do damage to a future B1G lineman.
/don't comment on gun usage. That's really just, stupid/scary<--take your pick.
This is taking it to an unnecessary level IMO.
OH-HOW-I-HATE OHIO STATE
I think this is starting to get out of hand. Stop talking and wait til you're on the field guys.
this is by far (incoming class + next years class) the loudest, mouthiest bunch of recruits i can remember. maybe its the social media, but im beginning to wish id hear less about this stuff.
not saying its their direct fault, but i would rather hear the seniors talk and the freshmen shut up, sit down, and get to work.
Kids like Roh, Campbell, Lewan, Denard, need to give these kids reality checks when they come in. You havent done anything to talk about beating Ohio State yet.

Eh, I would not be surprised to see / hear Hoke talk to Bosch and the others about toning it down a bit. Look at Frank Clark (if I remember the player correctly), he was making inappropriate comments on Twitter, etc. and Hoke supposedly talked to him.
“What the mind can conceive, the mind can achieve and those who stay will be champions.” - Bo
You are correct about it being Clark.
I think just the opposite. Right now they're still just high schoolers and have not put winged helmet. Now's the time to say silly things. I would much more bothered by a current player saying this stuff. The coaching staff and current players have been nothing but respectful yet intense. I'm sure by the time they get on campus, they'll get set straight. Haven't heard a word from Kalis or Pipkins.
So, tell me, "JimBobTressel," did you want Terrelle Pryor to "shut up" after he committed to Ohio? Didn't think so.
not even sure what this means
Lets hope they Shock the world as well.
Blue is Faster
If I was you, I'd perfer they win something.
"So put 2 on, put 10 on, WHAT DO YOU CARE IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'RE PAYIN' FOR 'EM!!!!?"

This is a perfect example of trolling a rival blog. If you want to be treated with respect around here, don't act like a fucking asshole. Or just go to your own blog.
Come on, that's funny right there. I don't ever troll anything that doesn't deserve it. Look at my comments, most would back me up. It's only the fringe of your fanbase I like to poke at. Most Michigan fans here/everywhere are sensible and able to engage in relevant football banter, however, some are morons and deserve to be mocked. You and I both know that.
If you want to talk about a fanbase that are morans and need to be mocked, how about you start with something closer to home. Thank you.
I don't really have anything useful to add, I just wanted to point out the esteemed gentleman from Columbus's use of the word "perfer." Just because that's how y'all pronounce it, doesn't mean that's how it's spelled.
Haha a typo? You know the "e" and "r" keys are right next to each other, and also the size of a grain of rice? It happens. #sorrynotsorry
When did I ever say Ohio State didn't have morons in its fanbase?
