His veteran free agent signings and trades have been just terrible since. This doesn't even phase me at this point.
|1 day 23 hours ago||I know you are kidding, but||
I can't imagine a person I'd want less to be associated with Michigan athletics. It is hard to have worse pizza and commericals than Dominos but Papa John's delivers!
|2 days 1 hour ago||According to 247 composite rankings we are currently||
10th in average rating which is a good start. That number could go up or down quite a bit depending on how the rest of our class shakes out which is probably dependent on how the season goes.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I'm expecting 8-5 with loses to all 3 rivals, the bowl game||
and one of PSU, Utah, Northwestern, etc. While I am expecting that result it does not mean I would be satisified. I still think that is a bad season for Michigan.
Not that anyone cares, but for me to be satisifed with the season we need at least nine wins with one of them over Sparty or Ohio.
|2 days 4 hours ago||It will be very interesting to see how our QB's play after Shane||
Speight, Malzone and DeWeaver are all borderline 3/4 star types. We have certainly seen guys like that pan out better than the 5 star studs, and so much of a QB's success is dependent upon coaching, intagibles and the offense around them. Two of our best QB's in recent history were Griese and Brady who were much less heralded than even some of their own teammates.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Yep typos are endemic in the internet era||
though I think a lot of it based on the need to get content out cheaply and ASAP. Many "news" sites have obviously made a concious decision to put speed and frequency over the quality of content.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Agree 100%||
I think the coaches were worried of playing musical chairs with the remaining targets and being left without a seat when the music ended so they offered a local kid who is a lifelong fan and who's profile was rising.
What has me somewhat encouraged is Nussmeier's track record of identifying and developing QB prospects. Nussmeier saw all these guys throw live and still decided to offer Malzone when they did.
|3 days 19 hours ago||According to reviews I have seen||
Malzone was out classed by a number of other former Michigan targets like Wimbush, Stidhim, Rosen, Towns, White, Etc. But as others have mentioned this is based on limited throws. Most importantly, I have more faith in Nussmeier's ability to identify and develop a QB than Borges.
|4 days 3 hours ago||I haven't heard of many 2015 targets attending the BBQ||
is it a down event compared to past years due to fewer openings, slower recruting momentum or am I just missing guys saying they are coming?
|1 week 2 days ago||Most overrated GM in sports||
Holland's initial success was a product of the great organization built by Develano and Bowman. Now that he is on his own and needs to be creative and aggressive in the salary cap era he is not up to the task at all.
|1 week 3 days ago||Holland should have begun the rebuilding||
process several years ago. Now the Wings are stuck in purgatory being not good enough to contend for a cup or attract the top free agents, but they are good enough to scrape into the playoffs, get a worse draft pick and keep the kids down on the farm. The Cup window closed when Lidstrom retired, but Holland thinks as long as the playoff streak keeps going he is succeeding.
|1 week 3 days ago||Meanwhile Holland sits on his hands||
for the fourth straight off season.
Although maybe that is a good thing, because when Holland has signed or traded for a veteran in the last four years they have been mostly terrible.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm in the same boat ,and it is too bad||
because the diving and histrionics take away from some pretty amazing athletic feats.
|1 week 4 days ago||I love the Michigan replay theme song||
Still gives me goosebumps when I hear it
|1 week 4 days ago||Strobel has not impressed me at all||
We really need some D lineman to emerge and become studs. I can't remember the last stud DL we've had. Mike Martin I guess, but then who before him?
|1 week 4 days ago||I hate to be that guy||
but the whole "Ohio" thing doesnt really work for hoops IMO. Especially when we lost to the real Ohio not that long ago.
|1 week 5 days ago||Boykin has been there three times||
Including last weekend. He could still pick ND but don't be surprised if he goes Sparty.
|1 week 5 days ago||Ummm sorry but that is going to be a very unfun day||
They are all going elsewhere with Sparty and Ohio each likely to pickup at least one of them.
|2 weeks 2 hours ago||Fucking||
|2 weeks 1 day ago||How bout Dirk Diggler?||
You can feel his heat.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Gee I wonder where Jalen ends up?||
Oh well, he probably wasn't coming here and its better for us than Sparty or Illinois.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||If what ESPN was going for was a midwest program||
that out performs its collective recruiting rankings then it seems like they should have chosen Wisconsin or Sparty for thier story and not Iowa.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Hiring someone to replace your windows can be totally worth||
it. However, there is a huge markup in this industry so try shop around and compare as much as possible. You should be able to negotiate them down. Its kind of like carpeting in that regard.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||True- it is sad||
that reforms like this are essentially being forced on them, but better late than never.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Its almost impossible to have a list like this and not have||
it colored by a coach's full history. Most pundits will say that Izzo is a top 5 coach becuase he has 6 final fours and an NC. Same with Coach K, Calipari, Pitino, Billy Donnovan, etc.
I am a little surprised that Bo Ryan is ahead of JB, but I guess he has had a longer period of success.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yea, it was. Bradley had the ball||
the other 7 guys did not. If it were hoops and the winning team had the ball and all they had to do was run out the clock wouldn't you be pissed at the guy with the ball passing it to the other team? Think Isiah to Bird or Freddy Brown to Jordan. That is how bad it was.
|3 weeks 23 hours ago||Thus continuing a trend of commitments immediately||
following a Sparty visit. Nothing like seeing the two schools in person to get the contrast
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Nice- another need checked off||
now we just need to secure a stud RB, WR and DE and the rest is gravy.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Yup- there will be nights when this team||
gets killed down low and on the boards. Especially early in B1G play. How quickly the bigs develop will determine whether this team can compete for a conference championship and/or make a tourney run.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Cool story bro||
I played youth league soccer with Alexi. Needless to say, our soccer paths have diverged slightly since grammar school.
