|6 days 7 hours ago||I would imagine all Big 5 conference football teams are||
self sufficient. But that's not relevant in college athletics. That football team needs to subsidize other sports.
$18M to broom a coach and then the millions for new coach is not chump change for any athletic department.
|1 week 2 days ago||It's so easy to root for O$U this weekend .....||
But not for our benefit. It's all about maximum pain for O$U should we beat them next weekend!
If Sparty beats O$U then they are out of the CFP. If we beat them next week it would be painful for them but they're already out.
If O$U beats Sparty then they walk in to the Big House with all their hopes alive and well. We beat them that day and their pain will be 10x what it would be if they already had a loss.
If that doesn't get to root for O$U then look at it this way ..... don't root for O$U, root against State. That's easy to do.

It would depend on his workouts more than the next 4 games but I think he has a great chance of getting drafted late.
The med school option definitely won't help his draft chances. NFL teams like "football" guys with no options other than football. Riskier to spend a pick on a kid that might wake up one day and say "F this, i'm going to med school".
But if he wants it I think he could convince some GM to take a late round shot at him.

|2 weeks 5 days ago||Peppers quote regarding Jehu||
"Probably the fastest guy on the team, though it kills me to say that."
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Harbaugh and Drevno at the Saline game.||
Which Saline pulled out for the W.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||38-6||
|4 weeks 3 days ago||But he doesn't spell "it" with "is".||
So he has that going for him.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Most NFL QB's speak with some level competency.||
I've always assumed it's a requirement for an NFL quarterback. Shows they are intelligent, confident, capable, etc. Things needed to be the leader of an NFL offense.
Having watched Hard Knocks, Mallet sounds like a fucking idiot every time he opens his mouth.
Hard to believe many teammates will be missing his presence in the locker room.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Green falls down if the wind blows too hard.||
What would make you think he could somehow block?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I understand that 20/20 hindsight is excellent vision||
But that was on Harbaugh. When State didn't drop a kick returner he should have taken a delay of game. Drop one or two of those gunners next to Blake because the only way you lose that game without a kick returner is exact scenario that played out.
I love Harbaugh. But that play was on him. Not Blake.
Also, it should have been made crystal clear to Blake that if anything funny happens with that snap you just fall on it.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan being given the NCAA Championship||
in basketball because of another program cheating, is a headline that I could live without. Not to mention, every time that championship is referenced it comes with the asterick that it was a forfeited championship. Not the kind of championship I'm looking for.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Or $20 a person to throw at||
the guy/gal running the tailgate. Michigan fans are a friendly crew if you're wearing the right colors. But $20 per person is the Michigan way if you're crashing a tailgate.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Assuming you're not familiar with Sam's "gut feelings".||
It's the same as insider info. He rarely uses the term anymore but back in the day a Webb "gut feeling" meant you could take it to the bank cause Sam had an inside.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I'm overall impressed with Jabrill but||
that guy should spend less time on interviews and more time in the weight room.
His arms just look ..... you know ..... kind of like ...... a NFL linebackers! Jeez!
|6 weeks 6 days ago||He admitted it a week or so ago.||
In an interview he said it "kills him to say it, but Jehu is fastest guy on the team"
|7 weeks 2 days ago||The same Tark that was videotaped||
running practices in off season time.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||He's a huge part of the success||
But I doubt he wants to take the pay cut to move FSB II. Unless he has a head coach opportunity at that level. If he does, I say thanks coach and wish him well. Football won't make or break Saline.
Jeb looks like D1 talent to me this year. He was great last year but he looks faster this year. I would think a kid with that speed could maybe even land a B1G offer. Btw, Jeb was one of the guys that Simmons trucked! Ouch!
|7 weeks 4 days ago||If he wants to be a 5 star ;-)||
Or maximize his talents. School of choice means a kid isn't stuck. He or she can go get coached up and improve their oportunity. It's not a bad thing.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Smart & talented = stars!||
The humble thing sounds nice but it's not true in either case.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I'm not a talent guru but live in Saline so I've watched him||
last year and this year. Throws a nice ball. Pretty quick release. He's fast but not slippery. It's tough for me to say how he'll do at the next level. Palka has Saline playing a different game than most high school level teams. Results in lots of "free yards" as article says. Jackson is definitely an athlete but I'm not sure he's an exceptional athlete. I don't see him as a starting D1 QB.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Saline resident and was at that game.||
Simmons definitely stands out. He's what I like to call a slobberknocker. A couple Saline kids were looking for the number of the truck that ran them over that night.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Do they not have lights on their fields?||
I can see Cass' field from my office window and I don't see any lights. I know this game is at King but why if you live in SE Michigan would you schedule a high school game for same time as a Michigan game?
Football should be high school Friday night, college Saturday, and NFL Sunday.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Wasn't Molk the guy that supposedly||
wasn't that interested in the NFL and was planning on running his families farm?
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Key word there is "garbage".||
25 garbage pass attempts won't do anything for Shane. We're making way too much out of this in my opinion. If we need him, he plays. If we get lucky enough to never need our backup except as a garbage time guy, he redshirts. Makes perfect sense.
Shane, if that hurts your feelings (which I doubt it does) sorry about that.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||31-17 Michigan||
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks.||
I posted too soon. Just looked and saw they have him at the "Buck"
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Where's Royce Jenkins-Stone?||
Did I miss some news about him?
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Is it James Ross that Webb calls "Smalls"?||
As a nickname.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Agree||
And whining about schedules is never an attractive look for a fanbase.
