- Maybe Hoke did well at recruiting despite his social media policy.
- Hoke recruited very well but not lights out. That might be a structural issue with Michigan's lack of oversigning and academic standards, but one could argue that Hoke's recruiting was very good but not national championship great. From the Mathlete's analysis (LINK):

I'm glad that both of the passengers are okay (I presume that they are since the article didn't comment on their condition).

Could be Henry Wilson Temple (LINK), but I'm not certain as in 1901 he was professor of political science at Washington & Jefferson College. Was he sufficiently important then to receive mention?

And deserves as many upvotes as it gets.

This post couldn't be written in traditional print media -- it would never get approved. Yet it strikes a chord with many of us. It's a wonderful thing, actually.

Thanks. It was your comment that made me go looking. Then, after I posted the story, I started wondering about what you had said on the broadcast.
The Tribute has a short story about the riots here, on November 26, whereas the game was on November 7th and the post-game article in the Tribune says nothing about riots. So you must be right (not that I doubted you).
PS This is really funny from my perspective (I teach the Classics) from the November 9th Tribute article:
I'm looking forward to the HTTV piece!

and other bible verses in Latin: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloria_%28U2_song%29
Latin's been around a long time.

But you'd imagine that he took a pay cut.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Yes||
Greg Mattison signed the three-year extension in March 2013 that pays him $835,000 in 2014, $875,000 in 2015 and $915,000 in 2016.

But if the OP wants to talk about the awesome quality of a Michigan education maybe s/he should spell words correctly (alumni) and avoid randomly capitalizing words.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||It is a very good school overall||
but the average undergraduate at Texas isn't very good. I haven't taught at Stanford like I did at Texas, but I have to imagine that the overall quality of the undergraduate body is much superior. I was a bit shocked at how poorly prepared the average Texas student was compared to the average student at UM.

But that's nonsensical on its face. Say I win the lottery. Almost by definition any major lottery will have infintessimal odds. Does it logically follow that I cheated? Of course not. But that's exactly what the author of the Sharp Football Analysis piece concludes: "it was not the result of simple random fluctuation."

"Wither Dymonte Thomas?" was a pun. Whence and whither are awesome words. Although I hate it when people say "from whence" which is nonsense as whence = from where/which place.

I beleive that all QBs taller than 6'6" must be measured in Brock Osweilers.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Or...||
maybe in a normal year he commits in the fall and as a result the scouting services bump him up to three or four stars.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||If this is an issue then the NFL should provide all game balls||
I mean, why make the teams do it? It just seems dumb.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||It's not you.||
"as required by NFL regulations" makes it sound like the NFL requires that game balls be under-inflated.

|6 weeks 3 days ago||Ty Law was a great, great player and one of my favorites||
at Michigan. I agree, he was some shutdown corner. I remember watching games when the opposition wouldn't throw at his side of the field all game, and if they ever did, it always seemed like it was an interception or a near-interception.
He was also great in New England, of course. Three INTs vs. Peyton in the 2003 AFC championship game was some performance.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah. I was hoping that Manning could be retained||
in a non-coaching role and then groomed to replace Mattison when he retired. But I agree that in a perfect world we'd have enough slots for Manning but it's really hard to double guess anyone with a track record of hiring as good as Harbaugh's.
