Looking over the spring practice pictures and videos people have previously posted about I was excited to see how involved the coaches are with the players at practice. I'll admit, I haven't seen any practices at other schools, but noticed how our coaches are running, sweating, and working along with the players whenever you see them. You gotta love a coaching staff that sets the example.

Until I see a photo of Gerg putting a huge hit on someone, WITHOUT messing up his hair, there will not be enough coach involvement for my taste.
happy st. patricks day.
Is impossible to "mess up."
Accept this fact and you will achieve true enlightenment.
What will they think of next?
Captain Sobel, of course, is the media.
I wonder if their running song is like the one from Full Metal Jacket about Eskimo pussy, except replace Eskimo with Michigan...
IS Michigan pussy mighty cold?
The coaches know summertime in Michigan is coming up. They're shredding those abs up for the Jobbie Nooner.
for the Jobbie Nooner reference.
Ridiculous island, ridiculous party.
Have you been? I think it's sort of overhyped and gross. I wish it wasn't. After all, I'm hardly the type to swoop in with sweeping generalizations and blindly call gratuitous helpings of chest icicles bogus.
But, seriously, there are some homely faces and bodies (this is rather generous, actually) on that island once each summer--*OLD* faces and bodies, mostly. And they're there en masse, making up the greatest proportion.
It's basically an island party full of all of your creepy uncles, your creepy uncles' creepy friends, and all the not-obese-but-still-old-and-overweight women they could fit on board before capsizing. Sure, there are some attractive people our age (I'm in my 20s), too. But they aren't common, and they don't do much aside from that which they'd do at a good bar, like Dominick's in Ann Arbor (walk a bit, drink a bit, sit a bit, toss a football in the 'quad a bit, repeat).
I've been down the St. Clair River from my hometown (Algonac) a few times; I've always had fun, but I would have had fun on a lake island with just my friends, anyway. That part isn't tough. The environment never added anything for me. If I never go back on that particular date, then that'll be ok.
I can only imagine the media if an M coach showed up there. And the thought of someone like Bruce Tall in a swimsuit, or less, is frightening.
One thing about our coaches is that they are always involved and intense. My mom went to the Women's Football Academy and took a short hard pass in the head from an intense Magee. Actually ended up in the training room with some blood and a bump for most of the day. Grady (24) actually came in the training room and hung out with her while he got some treatment so she said it wasn't a total loss.
ha thats classic, kinda reminds me of this
Your link must contain national security measures as it has been blocked at the border. Probably a coded message in the comedic context.
Well darn...its a clip of peyton manning hitting kids with footballs, hope I don't get negged into oblivion now.
You mom should LOOK FOR THE BALL EARLIER! Just kidding, getting beaned in the head with a football thrown by a QB coach makes for an awesome story.
Magee isn't the QB coach, but it's a good story nonetheless.
These coaches have always been high energy. There are a couple chubsters on the staff, but guys like Dews, Gibson, and Rodriguez are constantly running and jumping around.
Compared to Penn State's coaches (the only other major college practice I've seen), Michigan's coaches are downright hyperactive. I have a lot of respect for Ron Vanderlinden, Tom Bradley, Larry Johnson, etc., but none of them really hop in the drills like Michigan's coaches.
