The Prius is the worst. I get worked up even thinking about how terrible they are. Their drivers are the worst too. I'm not talking about the pompous attitude that they seem to have. I am talking their literal driving skills. Lacking.

Well, then it's very unlikely that ND's deal will be worth more than ours, especially considering the fact that it seems that people will be more likely to buy gear once we switch to Nike. I personally have a long overdue shopping list.
I was trying to give thought to how Notre Dame might be worth more than ours without dismissing or trashing them off hand. If what you say is true, then I want to get in on the action. To hell with that pompous fake Irish trash school.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||It could very well be that||
It could very well be that Notre Dame's deal is bigger. Numbers wise, what we know is that Michigan is making around $10 per with 15% royalties. ND is making $10 with 13% royalties. There are a lot of Notre Dame fans and I see them everywhere. If they're all buying gear, the royalties could make ND's number bigger than Michigan's. That's plausible, right?
I am very happy with the deal that Hackett got.

This is one of the most ignorant things I've read on the blog. This is a baseball issue, not a Fenway issue. This could have happened at any stadium. Fenway is into the modern era of fan safety. The concourses have been renovated extensively since FSG took over. The seating bowls have undergone improvements as well. I really have no idea where this take came from. This has much more to do with bat materials than anything else.

From what I gathered from quick Google searching, Bruce Brown lists himself as being from Dorchester, MA, which is in Boston proper. He went to HS in Wakefield (north of the city) and then transferred to Vermony Academy. If anyone was wondering, I hope that clears things up. I was curious because I'm from/live in the Boston area.

I'm not sure how developed Thornton is as a player, but considering he's a 5-star, couldn't you consider it the options being:
1: Stay in HS, go to prom, be big man on campus, go to Duke the following year
2. Go to Duke, play college basketball, be a big man on campus, potentially prepare for the NBA Draft
Assuming that's a part of Thornton's dream, I think that the potential to get there sooner would be rather attractive.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
I think that we're getting back to the point where our head coach is going to be a larger than life figure. I felt Bo had that aura and Harbaugh seems to be heading there, off the field, thus far. I obviously have high hopes for him on the field but had no idea that he would be such a presence in just about everything off the field when we got him. Despite being semi-controversial on some things, he has been a full fledged asset since he has touched down in Ann Arbor.

I think that he was talking about the question with regard to his ability to get the medical scholarship or not. As in, to get the medical scholarship, he would have had to have suffered injuries at Michigan. Since the injuries were "pre-existing," may be there were issues getting the medical scholarship. At least, that's how I read it. At least the first part of what 2Blue4You was asking/saying.

This is my first real interaction with them in person (besides what I see on TV and read), but I've always found them quite distasteful. My opinion of them hasn't changed and was possibly reinforced. Why in the hell do you need hockey cheerleaders/ice girls? I didn't know this existed until this because I don't think any of the B1G schools have them. Hockey East doesn't. Both NoDak and UNO had them. It was weird and why? NoDak fans are holding onto a nickname from yesteryear while wearing garrish Green jerseys that resemble St Patrick's Day gone wrong. Their team resembles that trashiness with their chippiness.
I know that NoDak got pissed at Rodriques for his spearing thing, but NoDak was doing that type of stuff every time a BU player skated by all game. It was a shitty move by Rodriques, but I didn't feel bad for NoDak at all. They had it coming to them.

That Werenski-Trouba comparison is terrible. They're trying to pigeon hole an argument that makes no sense for their own convenience. Honestly, if we're going to compare Werenski to a recent former Michigan defenseman, I'd go with Merrill. Werenski is a lot more of a finesse guy who does well on the PP. I think Merrill had a better stick in the defensive zone as a freshman.

Eichel should win this running away, if not unanimously (I'm certain some NoDak reporters will vote for McIntyre because East Coast Bias!). I also feel like it would be hollow for a guy whose college career is over and whose team didn't even play in the tournament to go to the Frozen Four. Not for the fans, but for the player himself. That said, Hyman was one of the primary reasons we actually came close to making the tournament this year, and I wish him the best in Florida.

Yup and you have to factor in his predilection for mobile QBs. Or QBs with the ability to run. We're not going to be Ohio State, but our QBs will be asked to pick up yards here and there, move out of the pocket, create passing opportunities by moving around. Harbaugh's use of different formations and his incorporation of new concepts with traditional techniques is going to be fun to watch.

USC has struggled (though not this recruiting class) due to the Bush scholarship reductions and general turnover with the coaching change.

If you haven't watched the Harbaugh QB Clinic video, watch it. You'll get a great understanding of him as a coach and what he expects and what he looks for in a QB. It's close to 90 minutes long but you can watch bits of it at a time. I'd recommend it to any Michigan fan or fan that wants to learn the game more. Google or YouTube it. It'll come up immediately.

|30 weeks 5 days ago||I'll predict the Patriots||
I'll predict the Patriots winning the Super Bowl like a brash Boston fan, but there are some serious road blocks:
Denver - I don't think Denver is that much of a threat. I'm not sure Peyton Manning can keep up with Brady this time. However, the Broncos are too talented a team to count off.
Pittsburgh - This is the scariest team in the AFC for me. They're playing well. They're a physical team and while the Patriots are not a soft team, Pittsburgh is one of the toughest teams to play. This is an opponent that the Patriots could struggle with. I hate the Steelers.
Green Bay - Aaron Rodgers is basically the perfect quarterback in this day and age. Sorry, Lions fans. I said it. His accuracy was lethal in the first game and the game plan to target the non-Revis/Browner DB was genius. It would be interesting to see how Belichick makes changes to prevent this from being a problem in a potential rematch. Rodgers ability to get out of the pocket and avoid pressure was also a problem that was less talked about. Furthermore, I thought Josh McDaniels had a horrible game (sidenote: his awful playcalling is why I won't miss him if he gets a head coaching job). Green Bay doesn't have a good run defense and the Patriots went away from it way too fast. I think that hurt the defense too because all of the three and outs kept Belichick from making adjustments. Oh, and no home cooking this time. The officiating, especially early on, was pretty freaking terrible at Lambeau.
Seattle - Seattle poses the most match up problems. Quarterback that is mobile, power running game, awesome defense. This is a game where a guy like Tim Wright would have to have a huge impact. I personally think Seattle will be the toughest out in the playoffs. They're just playing some crazy good ball right now.
I'd love for a Dallas-New England Super Bowl, just to see everyone unhappy though. Full disclosure, I like this Dallas team. They're likable beyond their terrible owner. I'm not even joking.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Dude...||
Luck was a four star out of high school too. Luck was also the best pro-style college quarterback since Peyton Manning. Those guys only come around every 15 years or so. I guess what I'm saying is that they are super rare and that Luck was developed and not a can't miss prospect.
I'll take an Andrew Luck though...

Found the Ray interview (linked in the post too, but here just for convenience) interesting:
That's the portion of the interview that stood out to me, which is the last part of the last paragraph for those searching. While not certain, this type of thinking suggests to me that they're more open to what they're looking for. Most of what Ray said was about having a balanced team, but more importantly, having a coach in place that can oversee everything. Having the structure in place to have an overall cohesive unit, instead of one or the other. I haven't listened to the interview so I want to see if he delved into more of the specifics of spread versus traditional pro-style, but acknowledging and highlighting effectiveness of coaching rather than scheme seems like it would be an important development.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Wait...||
Question: Why does the title of this thread say Top 5 when the article says the "highest-paid coach" in the NHL? Details, but details.
Digression: Who are the Top 5 coaches in the NHL anyway? I can get to four easily with Babcock, Julien, Quenneville, and Sutter. I'm going blank on number 5 at the moment.
Thoughts: Obviously, it's a great for the Red Wings. The whole "Babcock-to-Michigan" thing always seemed outlandish, though it would have been awesome if it had/did happen. Babcock is one of the best coaches in the NHL, if not the best. Though it may not be the way he would run things (may be it would be?), he has proven that he can work with the Wings way of developing young talent.

Yeah, I was on the "he might not be that bad a hire" path until my friend sent me that information. It brought that thought to a screeching halt. This is why he shouldn't be our coach. Whether that starts from the AD or permeates his coaching staff, this is not something we want at Michigan (or anywhere).
To add, this is my primary reason against Pinkel. I have less of a problem with the DUI and extra-marital stuff, although ideally you want a squeeky clean guy.

|36 weeks 4 days ago||We know this team can shoot||
We know this team can shoot from the outside. I think these games are an opportunity to get the confidence to drive and make plays closer to the rim. Guys like Irvin and Chatman will make the offense that much more lethal and multiple if they can get inside in addition to Walton and Levert. What I'm saying is that I'm not frustrated by them taking those outside jumpers and sort of stalling out in the second half of games against teams we know they can beat so much as getting frustrated that they're passing up the opportunity to work on something that will help them later in the season.
Defensively or at least on the glass, I want to see more of the boxing out. This could be the biggest development for the team because I think that it's been a weakness in the last couple of seasons. I want to see the bigs get their butts in on a man and I want to see the guards clean house. I hope Michigan can come out with the same defensive intensity they came out against Bucknell.

I'm surprised by how much shade has been thrown Rex's way, though I do think we're all a bit testy about this coaching search, myself included.
Let me start by saying that I don't think Rex should be the head coach at Michigan.
However, if you asked me if he would be a bad coach, I'd say no. He'd certainly be better than Hoke. Many of you have said that Rex has an average defense and a bad offense. That is simply not true. In fact, his defense has been consistently in the top third of the league and in some years, he's had top 5 defenses (YPG). The guy is a blowhard, but he can coach a defense. He has an eye for talent too. I think he can thrive at the college level in the right situation.
Now, there are two sides to my perspective. I'm a Patriots fan so I've had the pleasure of laughing at his teams. But at the same time, being a fan of a rival, I can say that I have respect for how he coaches up his teams. Again, I don't think he's right for Michigan and I think that the average defense/terrible offense and Hoke comparisons are completely off base. He at least has good defenses.
My qualms are with the coordinators he's brought in, especially offensively. It seemed like they tried ridiculously hard to make Sanchez fit. They ousted Schottenheimer, who has done pretty well in STL this year. Did you not give your OC the best chance to get the most out of that offense? Also, the Jets have issues beyond the coaching as that front office is incredibly dysfunctional. Would Rex do better in a situation where he'd have complete control over what's going on?
Do I think Rex could succeed at the college level? Yes. Are there a lot of questions and uncertainty, moreso than a proven college coach? Absolutely. Should Rex be the next coach at Michigan? No.
I can't believe I'm defending someone associated with the Jets.

I don't think the OP is asking whether Sumlin should get the top i.e. be the top candidate, but more so whether he should still be considered. Obviously, Dak was a nobody turned superstar. It would seem that Mullen would be far preferred to Sumlin, by pretty much everyone. I do think Sumlin has to be considered though as beyond the Harbaughs and Mullen, he is far from the worst option.
|40 weeks 4 days ago||I like Kevin Sumlin. It||
I like Kevin Sumlin. It would've been a progressive hire in 2011, but I'm not sure for now. He's an energetic dude that will recruit well and he will put guys in the pros. I do agree with most that defense is a question, but I expect whoever the new AD is will vet and make sure that we get a HC who will take care of the whole program, not just the offense and getting players into the pros. I would be happy with Sumlin and a great DC. However, his current DC makes like 500k and we've seen how aTm has done this year...
There are definitely questions, but I wouldn't come close to ruling him out.

Yup, I floated this to one of my friends and he freaked out the same way the guy you responded to did. He's a hell of a coach. He's a good evaluator of talent and man, can he coach a defense. The big thing is offensive. Um. Rex + Stitt Happens? That might be amazing.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||Folks...||
1. I'm not sure what the Michigan section is as I didn't get my tickets through UMCGB. I will be in section 102. The UMCGB bars in Boston are McGreevy's on Boylston Street and Tavern in the Square in Porter Square in Cambridge. Neither of these are particularly good to go to before this game, unless you want to leave the watch early or arrive to the game late. McGreevy's is on the Green Line which will take you right up to Agganis. Take the B (there are four branches of the Green Line) and stop at the Pleasant Street stop. That's if you want to watch the football game at the alumni bars.
2. Sunset Tap and Grill is probably the best bar in the area. It's a ten or so minute walk. There are plenty of other bars around too, but they'll vary in quality.
3. Agganis is pretty nice. It's pretty cushy. It seems to have been designed less for hockey than for other events like concerts and shows. When I was a kid, I went to Walter Brown, their old arena and that was a little band box similar to, but smaller than Yost. The new rink is way too big for every game besides BC. You'll notice that when you're there because there'll be some empty seats and it will be quieter.
Environment-wise, I think it's been better this year. I've already gone to two games, both of which were exhibitions, and I think that there is a lot more excitement and energy, especially from the student section. I'd call this the Eichel effect. The kid is really really really good.
4. They sell beer at Agganis.

My roommate is from Madison and his dad is a Wisconsin undergrad/law school alum. From what I've been told, I can totally understand why Wisconsin fans hated him despite the success that he had. Bielema, despite being a good coach, seems to be a genuinely terrible person to be around. So that it doesn't sound like I'm completely making accusations/withholding information, a car service in Madison refused to let him ride in their cars. They'd take his wife, who doesn't sound much better, but not him.

I can't say I'm entirely happy with what the Patriots got back, but it was pretty evident that Mallett wasn't developing at all. For all of his physical gifts, his head just isn't where it needs to be, to at least be the Patriots quarterback. The local radio hosts here called him something along the lines of a "crap Drew Bledsoe" and I think that's valid. Mallett is a player who trusts his arm more than anything. He needs to reel that in at the NFL level because the best QBs are the best decision makers. I don't think he learned that at all.
I know that preseason isn't a gauge of how good a QB is, but I think that's part of how Brady caught the eyes of the Patriots to begin with 13 years ago. Garoppolo's game management, throws and reads just seemed more on than I've ever seen from Mallett.
With that said, I wish Mallett the best of luck in Houston. I hope Bill O'Brien who I still have fond feelings towards from his time here can help turn his career around. Or I guess, better put, push him to reach his potential.

It's preseason in a World Cup year. I wouldn't call it an outrage if Ronaldo and Rooney are out. Bale should be available because Wales isn't Cuppin'.
I loathe both of these clubs, so I have a completely different opinion of this than all of you.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||I tend to agree with this||
I tend to agree with this assessment. I appreciate that those guys played for the Maize and Blue and wish them the best of luck, but their games weren't progressing like we needed them to. It seems like we've had a lot of players come in recently and play well as freshmen and then struggle and never make the leap that we've expected them to make. Honestly, that's what's held them back the last couple of years from the tournament. Two years, a game apiece out from making it.
It definitely frees up some space for the younger guys. I'd anticipate that this makes Copp a near lock to be captain. If Larkin is to play center, I'd guess that he'd get the second line role, or they could have him play LW with Compher who I would assume continues as our topline center. Copp's status as second or third line center would probably be contingent on that. I like the way that shapes up down the middle. Red will have options. Hopefully, it will be a team that plays to its talent.

Crushed for Stamkos. As the OP said, he is one of the most universally liked players in the league. He plays the game the right way and people respect that.

As for who replaces him? Even though I'd love to see him there, Jumbo Joseph doesn't have the speed for Olympic ice. You've gotta think it's St. Louis or Giroux. Dark horse would be Eric Staal who has played better as of late. Not exactly slim pickens from the replacements.

TROUBA (my phone autocorrects to all caps) is on his way to being of the best US born defensemen ever (Jones is too). That's not exaggeration. He's great with his stick and can certainly be a weapon with the puck at his stick. The main thing that he'll have to work on is being stronger in front of his own net. He'll have to be able to block out opposing forwards in front of his own net. He's only 19 though. I think he and Jones represent a golden age of US defensemen.

Lashlee is young and would be a very aggressive/out there hire. I just don't see him leaving Auburn. He has strong ties to Malzahn and is still very green as far as cutting his teeth at OC. He was only a grad assistant a couple of years ago. That's not to say he can't do the job. I just think it would be a hard sell. It would probably be difficult for him to leave Gus as well. I think he cuts his teeth there for a couple more years with his mentor, takes a small SWC type job before making a big jump.

First thing I did when I looked at OC's was find Baylor's OC. I didn't get to read his bio (cuz I was at work), but Montgomery has been with Briles since they were at Stephenville. I wonder if Montgomery would go with Briles if Briles leaves for the NFL, or takeover at Baylor, or consider other opportunities. The unlikely third case would be the only way I'd say.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||This stinks. I'm a Patriots||
I'm a Patriots fan. I get to see McDaniels' offense up close and personal every week. Everyone hypes of the Pats offense, but a lot of that has to do with Brady. A lot of it has to do with the system. I also think that BOB had a great positive effect too.
I don't really have a lot of nice things to say about McDaniels. I think that he's a good coach, but I hate his playcalling. For me, the Pats offense is about ball control and moving the chains. While Brady has thrown for a lot of touchdown passes, most of them seem to come on long, grinding possessions, enabled by the quick passing game. McDaniels likes to take more shots down the field and for me, waste downs. I mean, it was easier when you had Gronk and killer, but you've got to adapt to your talent. I don't think he's done that very effectively.
This is why I would not have been bummed if McDaniels would have left. Yeah, I'm nitpicking on an otherwise really good OC. I'm spoiled. I'm sorry guys.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I think Manziel will do okay||
I think Manziel will do okay in the pros as long as he can avoid the big hits. He's instrinctually a great football player, but I doubt he'll get away with throwing it up to receivers like he sometimes did with Mike Evans. He's illusive and he can extend plays.
I think the Dez Bryant comparison is good, though I think it's good for different reasons. I don't think Dez is an angel, but I do think he cares a lot about winning and is demonstrative about winning. Unfortunately, that body language is often misconstrued and he is portrayed like a miscreant. I think Mr. Football is also misunderstood and people think he's selfish or this or that. I'm not saying he isn't that. But I do think he cares deeply about winning and about football and perhaps some of that is a lack of maturity. I thought he showed some great leadership during the Chick-Fil-A Bowl.
For me, his success is contingent on the situation he walks into.

Jake Butt because I like butts, especially when they are a tight end.
Seriously though, when I think of an X-Factor, I usually believe that means that it is someone under the radar. I'd stretch the Gardner DUH thing out to some of the other key guys for Michigan like Funchess, Gallon, and Jake Mother F'n Ryan. Those guys are counted on to make the plays regardless of the opponent. For me, it's gotta be a lesser mentioned player. I think it's gotta be someone of the DL. Moreso with the way Michigan State runs, it's gotta be a guy on the inside. Q or Jibreel. We need them to plug holes and to get penetration. They've got to make it easier for the linebackers to get clean to the Langford and they need to be disruptive in the passing game. I'd love to see them force a Cook fumble. They've got to be difference makers.
