Football Display Case
I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.
first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
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?
Helmet numbers are the bright yellow now, and looks like the grey facemasks are here to stay.
Is not a safe assumption.
As was discussed here:
"The gray facemasks were the practice set all year, and the helmets won't be reconditioned until after spring practice anyway, so they'll be using whatever is on hand. Which means gray facemasks and numbers. "
Did the practice helmets always have hi-liter colored numbers on them? I thought the old helmets had the oldschool maize numbers. The sugar bowl helmets definitely had the oldschool maize, so if these are the same (which they might be, since they have the BCS stickers), then the numbers at least have definitely been redone since then.
a couple snaps weren't right on the mark. Definetly something to keep an eye on.
With a new center. Forgive me if I'm not yet worried.
Yep, that's Simba made out of a pineapple.
It's the first day of practice, obviously it's not gonna be perfect so don't read too much into that. Now if it continues then yea but come on they haven't played in nearly 3 months.
Not to be a downer or anything.
Not enough data, so I make big.
They no longer call me Bisbiño
One data point ... let's extrapolate!
My work is done.
Midwestern born and raised ... now living in the heat of the Arizona desert
And that turned out to be an 11-2 season that ended by winning the Sugar Bowl so I'm ok with it.
First practice video.......... and we have a discussion about helmet stickers? Let's talk about the tight spirals Denard was actually throwing or something pertinent to performance come September 1st.
Spring practice is always such a tease, but I'll take it.
Watched the whole vid with glee. What is it about that winged helmet that makes me smile and makes everything seem alright with the world?
also the colors are pretty cool....
I don't care who wins, as long as it's Michigan.....
you are quite astute
* With the weather, it really _will_ be Spring practice for at least a few days.
* I agree with the above poster that Denard's throws looked pretty good.
* Is it just me, or is Gardner still shot-putting the ball a little bit? I saw only a single throw.
"500 channels and nothing but cats."
On an underneath route like that, a little shotput-ish motion isn't too bad. the jury remains out until we see a full throw.
I thought that video would serve as a welcome relief from the months of not seeing any live football. I was wrong. Like a smoker lighting his first cigarette in a long time, it did nothing but awaken the inner beast who demands MOAR FOOTBALL.
Damn you, MGoBlue.com. Damn you.
Wait, what was your point?
No radio. Nothing of value.
Spring football signals the return of Doug Karsch height jokes.
Awesome...took only 12 seconds for us to get a shot of Hoke working on his Spring pointing.
Here is how old and out of touch I am (I'm 38, married, 2 kids, (I drive a DODGE STRATUS)).
This morning as I usually do on Saturdays at about 7am I'm out for a run and I'm passing through the UM practice field area. The sun is just coming up and there is a fine mist coming off the railroad tracks and coming across the lacrosse field. Of course I start thinking about the first football practice and wondering how it will go. As I head north on State St. I notice lots of people out and about and some house parties. "Huh" I think, "they must be stoked for the first practice cause I only see this on game days."
It wasn't till I got to Ashley's I realized it was St. Patrick's day. A pointless holiday if you aren't Irish, an alcoholic, or if you are burdened by the twin drudgeries of work and family.
Jon Runyan plugged my toilet.
St. Patrick's day is fun but it's just an excuse to get drunk. Just like Cinco De Mayo.
you sir, should be a poet or a novelist. The beginning of that middle paragraph sounds like it should be in an English novel.
HEY! You there!
Upon re-reading my eloquence I realized the lacrosse field is NOT next to the tracks but rather the field hockey field. Field hockey, lacrosse.....I'm an old man and can't tell the difference....
Man it's awesome to see all that...only 168 days till the Season starts
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?
StraightDave owes me a steak dinner
if we have completed all of the penalty requirements from StretchGate and that the team can now use all the normally available practice minutes?
Brady Hoke - High quality recruits one or two at a time.
missed out that we had completed our penalty requirements.
It's amazing on some folks on here can take a video that last 2.24 of 1st spring practice and make judgment calls-Hilarious some of you. Let them get through the spring and pads and start hitting and then maybe some assumptions can be made. But you know what happens when you assume! Chill Out folks
"There will be blood on the field and it won't be mine." -KK
I've been on here for awhile just not posted-It's apparent there are some non-athletes that post on here regularly that have no clue but have high opinions.
What would spring ball on mgoblog be like without exaggerated overconfidence and insecurity?
The internet (and MGoBlog) is made for over analyzing and jumping to wild conclusions based on limited data
My point was that you must be new here if this surprises you. This literally happens every year during spring.
the fact that those people don't need a whole 2:24 to reach those conclusions!
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
I guess it takes all kinds.
But U first. It's worth it.
Thank you for the video. It's amazing how good it makes you feel to see the boys of team 133. I can't wait for the second weekend of April. Go Blue.
All in for some manball.
Like baseball's opening day!
I imagine this is what a shot of heroin feels like..but better
This is like the last beer in the refrigerator. One and done? No way, I want more!
Don’t look back. Something might be gaining on you. -Satchel Paige
After the Spring Game last year we lost 1/5 of the readership to hangings and other forms of suicide because of how ugly it was. And none of them lived to see 11-2.

No matter how bad we look, I will always love watching Michigan men in winged helmets.
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.
Denard threw a spiral!!!! we gon be the big ten champs!
John 14:6 - Jesus said " I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except through me."
Just hope we get rid of gray facemasks, Bo didn't like them and neither do I.
"The goal, the expectation of this program is the Big Ten Championship"
as long as we win.
