Fair enough. I think they'd still have fun jabbing at us even if we beat them. That's what makes the rivalry great. We're always on each other's minds.

I agree. I'd switch with them in a heartbeat. I think it's a great picture, though and I just wanted to have some fun with it.

Stay on the main drag in Ybor City. It can get pretty wild down there. If you're looking for some great Cuban food go to La Teresita or Arco Iris. I like the bars near Hyde Park/Soho better than the Ybor scene.
Public transportation is virtually non-existant. If you rent a car, it might be worth the hour or so drive to go down to Siesta Key in Sarasota. It's one of the best beaches in the country.

I'd say it would be tough to pull McQuay away from USC if they get their hooks in to him. I think his main interest in choosing a school besides it's football program is if that school can help him in the recording industry. I'd say Los Angeles > Ann Arbor in that regard.

Dragging his coach/father into the discussion is a negative for Michigan especially since Gilman is a great program that produces a lot of talent. It's be like calling out Good Counsel or Cass Tech's coaching staff over recruiting nonsense.

Is that you?
Sorry, after reading your post I was having flashbacks from the critiques I used to receive from my professors.
Thanks for the breakdown. I'm new to writing the diaries and will admit to rushing through portions of the article. I'm sure as I keep writing them things will smooth out but I won't be able to shed the rust of not writing for 5+ years without constructive criticism. So for that, I thank you.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||Great point.||
I should have included in the diary that these two guys seem like polar opposites. Dunn is very reserved and keeps things close to the vest. Pryor was flashy and wanted the spotlight. I'm not trying to compare the two personality wise, I just think this battle is as important as the battle for Pryor was at the time.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||Don't ever say that again.||
Jesus God no. I simply looked at OSU's schedule, did a little research and made an opinion based on Hoke's first year and the potential of Meyer's first year.
I used to live in Gainesville, I know that Meyer is a good coach. I hope that I'm wrong.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Good points.||
I agree that based on OSU's past performance in 08', 09 and 10'. I was simply trying to make a 1st year comparison for both coaches based on their schedules in the first year. We don't know the sanctions, if any, but by the looks of it it seems like it will only be a slap on the wrist and Meyer will start building his team.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||T-Rich||
Could this be in response to the fact that Royce decided not to take any more visits but Terry Richardson did not? Maybe they aren't as firm with T-Rich and need a high-quality guy to replace him if he bolts before signing day.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Sounds like he wasn't||
Sounds like he wasn't adapting well to DT in Petrino's system after switching from running back. I guess it's just wishful thinking, but this guy sounds like he fills two current needs: FB and DT. He already burned his redshirt, which is a shame, so that means he's likely JUCO bound if he wants to play immediately.

That was actually my next post: "A giant case, cask or cupboard of FAIL for Obi Ezeh"
|6 years 1 week ago||Understood||
Of course I want to see Denard succeed. The point of this post was me merely making a parallel betwen the two players with similar teams. Gaudy numbers by a star player that the team can't win without. Young defense that gives us a bunch of yards/points.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||Thanks, teach.||
I just gave you an internet high-five.
|6 years 3 weeks ago||Our offense.||
In our offense, it is essential to get 1st and 2nd level blocks. Having quick, strong and agile lineman the reason we lead the nation in rushing. (Denard helps, but it's not 1 vs. 11)
Our lineman dictate the tempo and are laying the hits instead of receiving the blows from the linebackers and lineman. I think that as the season progresses, you'll see Michigan start to wear down these oversized lineman and linebackers because we're using their size against them.
Additionally, dipping any offense player in Barwis' urine essentially makes them Ulysses.
That is all.

I want the gold.
|6 years 3 weeks ago||Big Loss||
This is definitely a big loss for the offense but I think that our rotation has the strength to pick up the slack. I feel that facing a QB like Chappell is dangerous for our defense. However, I don't expect the RB's to have to pass block that much. With the combination of Smith and Cox, plus the running capabilities of Denard-a-tron, I don't see us putting up big passing numbers. I think this will be a ball control, long-drive type of game. Once we get the crowd out of it, it's over. Long, demoralizing drives are crowd killers.
|6 years 3 weeks ago||Best Non-Mich||
I was in Auburn for the 2007 USF vs. Auburn game. Was glad to see USF pull the upset (my Alma Mater). Great game atmosphere until the drunk Auburn fan chucked a table at my wife and I from the third floor of an apartment building as we walked back to our car. Great game that went into overtime.

I downloaded the TuneIn radio app ($1.99) and it allows you to search for specific channels nationwide. I just searched Google for stations that play Michigan Football. Keep trying till you find one that streams.
Hope this helps.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||I'm excited.||
Assuming that these guys maintain health, don't leave early or transfer, our 2012 squad looks pretty stacked with juniors and seniors who'll be in their third year of the offense/defense.
Denard (SR), Omameh (SR), Mealer (SR), Roh (SR), Campbell (SR), Kovacs (SR), Cox (SR), Roundtree (SR), JT Floyd (SR), Terrence Robinson, Je'Ron Stokes(SR), Vincent Smith (SR), Lewan (JR), Carvin Johnson (JR), Marvin Robinson (JR), Gardner (JR), Jabreel Black (JR).
I'm sure there are plenty of guys I'm missing but...
As far as Alabama goes, they way they recruit they'll always be stacked but I'm pretty sure they will have lost McElroy by then, will no longer have Ingram, Julio Jones, and I'm just guessing but I think Richardson will jump early after his junior year if he stays in Beast Mode.
Maybe I'm just being optimistic, but the 2012 Michigan Squad could be special.

Bill Burr is amazing. He totally destroys Philadelphia after they boo'ed him at an Opie and Anthony comedy tour. He trashes Philly so bad that by the end of it he actually wins over the crowd. Look it up.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||Do you want Alan Branch or Jabba the Hut?||
Do you want Alan Branch or Jabba the Hut? I also think that playing time is earned. The kid is huge, has great talent and would obviously help out a line that needs a space eater. That said, I don't want him getting blown off the ball or injured against quality O-Lines like Wisconsin or tOSU because he's not in shape yet.
This might be a stupid question to ask. Wouldn't getting him into the game help him get game speed and game shape? BGSU seems like a good game for him to get reps.

The only one that comes to mind is Justin Feagin.

If we would just dip RichRod in a vat of Barwis' urine we'd basically have the Ulysses of college football.
As a side note, I truly believe in the healing powers of Barwis' urine.

As someone who used to live in Gainesville and work in the medai down there, TRUST ME, there is so much more that the Gainesville PD lets slide because they are all Gator honks. There is absolutely nothing to do in Gainesville but get wasted, scream "WOO, GO GATORS!" and get in bar fights.
In addition, driving 15 miles in any direction of Gainesville puts you smack dab in Deliverance.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||Turnovers||
I don't see UM putting the ball in the air too much against BGSU. With all the emphasis and quotes over the last couple of weeks of getting other backs involved, I would assume that it's going to be a "run until they stop it" kind of day. I think Fitzy will make it back into the line-up and you'll see Hopkins eat his fare share of cupcakes.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||But numbers are numbers||
We could play the "what-if" on us putting the ball on the ground. The difference between last year and this year is that we're in position to recover and are doing a better job in the HOLD ON TO THE DAMN BALL department. Aside from special teams, which after three year you'd think would be at least moderately fixed, we're winning the turnover battle. Win the turnover battle, win the game.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||I'm saddened.||
If we're not confident that we can beat this team WITH their first stringer, we've got bigger problems.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||Shades of Bo....||
Heart Attack before the Rose Bowl after the epic upset of Ohio State. Never wish heart problems on anyone, but with D'Antonio, Urban Meyer, etc. I think that head coaching may be approaching Deadliest Catch levels of stressful job status.

Is their bandwagon going to grow. If so, we can start calling them Wal-Martans.

I assumed the Buckeyes were a pass first offense. Their running game doesn't seem to be power back based like MSU, Wisky and Iowa.

I'm just trying to post threads that help distract the other posters from stepping from the ledge after a victory.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||Umm...||
42 points....22 minutes of possession. No serious injuries. Every week is different. Guys, it's not as bad as the box score.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||On a positive note...||
I just got back from Costco with enough Kotex to calm this vagfest down.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||Five words.||
GET OFF THE DAMN FIELD.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||Defense struggles..||
They are a combination of not stopping UMASS on 3rd and 4th down, not HOLDING ON TO THE DAMN BALL after the interception, and scoring 42 points during our meager 22 minutes of possession. UMASS won the line of scrimmage today, but if we can still be that "bend but dont break" defense we will win a lot of games this year. UMASS may have played well, but I still feel they had to earn every yard.
|6 years 49 weeks ago||Sounds like the same ole...||
Frustrated or not, Michigan has averaged more than 31 points per game. Delaware St. aside, any new coach you would hire probably wouldn't be able to average more than 30 a year. This done with two freshman QB's, a bevy of drive killing and game killing turnovers and a NAIA defense. I realize that being patient is like pulling asshairs out with tweezers but its the only option. Beat Ohio State!
|6 years 50 weeks ago||We have a chance if...||
We control the ball. I know this is a Captain Obvious statement, but if we can control the ball and the clock and HOLD ON TO THE DAMN BALL we should win. 31-20 Michigan.
