rundown of Michigan's riser
|1 week 2 days ago||yuck||
I'll bet Morris will be happy he gets to wear the most beautiful uniform in the country and not those nasty high school uniforms. Purple blows, man.
|1 week 4 days ago||This can't be right. He was||
This can't be right. He was an OSU commit? I thought Urbz only went after 7 star players?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I absolutely agree with you.||
I absolutely agree with you. He looks pretty thick. He needs to put on more pounds but he does look like he's filling out for his position change.

Best of luck to the kid. He's getting a pretty damn good free education at NW.

Those have to be fake.
If they aren't, there will be absurd amounts of eyeball stabbing.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Was it last night people were||
Was it last night people were talking about whether Ross' TFL was an A-gap or just a read... Morgan loops behind him to cover his A-Gap. So a damn quick blitz for sure.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I saw him pull up and I was||
I saw him pull up and I was instantly like "what the hell are you doing??"
This was immediately followed by "YES YES YES YES YES GREAT SHOT!!!!!"
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Hardest I've ever been hit||
Hardest I've ever been hit was when I was playing for an All-Ohio Senior team... It was a practice and I was an OLB at around 6'0 170. The offense threw a jailbreak screen and the receiver caught it but when he went to tuck the ball he fumbled somehow.. not sure how but not important. I ran into the flats and scooped the ball around the hash and looked up to see some HUGE D1 tackle 2 feet from me. Before I could react he hit me and I flew from the hash to the sideline. It felt like it anyway.
One of those hits where you pop right up after to act like it didn't suck.

I loved watching how active McGary was the entire game. With him down low and a better performance from Burke, Michigan will be in the sweet 16.

This was more entertaining than watching the actual president fill his out.

Oh, did you guys know that Stauskas isn't just a spot up shooter?

Classy guy. I hope he gets a shot in the NFL. He's a smart player who will put his hat on you right freaking now. His numbers show he isn't all that slow either

These past four years with Denard have for sure spoiled me. I'm really going to miss him.

I suck at math. Hold off on deleting this post while I write down this website.

All I saw in that video was the deep ball. I know things have been said about his arm strength but how's his accuracy on other throws? Can he hit a 15 yard comeback?
If he can show he can make other throws I think he'll definitely be a four star before it's all said and done.
|12 weeks 12 hours ago||Exactly||
Well John Doe and Joe Schmoe are visiting this weekend. We're on commit watch... Yawn.

Up 14 with ten to go? Step on their throat and win by 30. Playing complacent is why they lost. Blaming refs is a copout
|12 weeks 13 hours ago||Uh.... Mods?||
|12 weeks 14 hours ago||It may hurt for awhile||
But it's just one game... Michigan will get it back.
|12 weeks 14 hours ago||I'm telling you, home court||
I'm telling you, home court means EVERYTHING in the Big Ten. In case you forgot, IU lost to Minny last night.. so it's not like Michigan is the only team underperforming right now.
Still can't tell how Michigan is going to do on neutral court.

If the temperature here would have stayed around 32-31 degrees it would have been nasty. There was around a tenth of an inch of ice stuck to the trees and power lines after about an hour of raining. After that the temperature rose to 36 and it's been raining since.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||A lot can happen from now||
A lot can happen from now until tourney time. All Michigan can do is win every game.
And the good thing is, IF Michigan wins out, they'll easily get a 1 seed. Woo!

Home court means EVERYTHING in the Big 10 conference
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Part of Gardner's ceiling is||
Part of Gardner's ceiling is dependent on how well the weapons around him play.
Henne, Navarre, Henson, and Brady all had NFL-caliber recievers to throw to. Walker, Terrell, Edwards, Breaston, Manningham, Arrington, Avant, etc.
I know Gallon plays bigger than he is but you have to have guys who can stretch the field on a consistent basis. Michigan needs some of its younger players to fill those shoes so Gallon doesn't have to be the vertical guy while Dileo is the underneath guy.
On the bright side, the other thing that the beforementioned QB's had was a beast of a RB to work the playaction pass like Thomas, Perry, Hart, etc. I think Michigan has a guy in Green and also in Smith who can fill that role.
I believe that Gardner has the ability to be an All-American. But the realist in me believes that he'll top out at All-Big 10.

He's probably wondering how he beat up on Michigan this year with that kind of speed.

No bracket in March is a cake-walk... but I'd rather be in the South when it looks like that than the West with Gonzaga, Wisconsin, Ohio, Miami, and Arizona. that's a brutal region.

Good article. Fitz has had to deal with a lot of injury during his career. Two seasons ago he proved how good he can be at his best. I'm hoping he can get back on the field running well again

I felt like a zombie rolling out of bed this morning.

I agree with that. Their db class is good. Even without Von they pulled a top five db class. But just having good db's doesn't make their class unbelievable.

Osu didn't have a position group that made this list... I thought they brought in a monster class.

I hope Fitz can get back for this season. It would make for good competition for carries between him and Green.

Maybe if Burke doesn't win POY he'll come back another year. One can dream.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||It's not like he'll whiff||
It's not like he'll whiff tackles in November because he's a fan. He'll probably play his hardest against a team he grew up rooting for.

I'm hoping green has many runs like marshaun lynch's touchdown run in the playoffs a couple years ago.
|15 weeks 12 hours ago||The biggest issue on defense||
The biggest issue on defense last night was UM hedging screens and forcing Craft out and helping hard on Thomas. It looked like they were going to make the other Buckeyes win the game. If osu's other players would have played how they normally do and not extremely well, I think UM would have won by ten.
That was the only gripe on defense for me last night. Maybe a little too much help.
Boxing out needs to get better. I don't ever want to see another Zeller tip slam
Oh, and more threes please.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Go Blue!! I'm expecting||
I'm expecting several slams tonight that make me jump out of my chair and/or spill my beer.

I was thinking that nothing could be worse than Justin Boren leaving UM and going to play for OSU...

Not sure why.. But after watching this kid's highlights he reminds me of Jake Locker a bit. Hopefully the college version

Taylor Lewan and I am pulling for Brendan Gibbons to be a captain.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Why don't they make a Big Ten||
Why don't they make a Big Ten WOO division with:
Michigan, MSU, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Penn State, Illinois, and Ohio... conveniently listed last
and a Big Ten MEHHH division with:
Iowa, Indiana, Minnesota, Rutgers, Maryland, Purdue, and Northwestern.
That way the winner of the WOO division has an easy road to the Rose Bowl and since whoever wins the B1G will have came from that division and played tougher teams, they'll be more ready to compete in the BCS game.
Side note: When the B1G gets Georgia Tech, they go to the WOO division.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||You call a spade a spade if||
You call a spade a spade if you ask me... 5 loses is not acceptable regardless of who was played. This is Michigan, fergodsakes.

20 stepped into him.. Why he ran off as an outlet man is beyond me.. He would have had that board lol

Just an absolute disgusting dunk in a game. I love how quiet the crowd was after that.
On a side note, do you think he could have been whistled for traveling if a ref felt like being a dick?
|17 weeks 6 days ago||UM needs to land Green badly.||
UM needs to land Green badly. It's been awhile since Michigan has had somebody that size running the ball... A-Train maybe? I just hope someone can come up with a catchy nickname like that.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||As hard as a hit as it was, I||
As hard as a hit as it was, I think it shows Smith's toughness when as soon as his back hit the ground he was grabbing for the ball that he fumbled. Not for a second was he disoriented from the hit.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||I haven't been around posting||
I haven't been around posting long enough to get a good feel for a big group of the posters... but I do like the posts by Magnus. Realist and informative.
And the person who only posts in gifs. They are priceless.

The size is really nice to have. I'm glad UM's secondary isn't full of 5'8 guys.

With all the trick plays and everything I kept thinking about the Bourbon Bowl in The Waterboy...
"Last game of the year, can't hold anything back now"
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Just because he hasn't jumped||
Just because he hasn't jumped on the Wolverine Wagon from day one doesn't mean his heart is elsewhere or he's looking for a cop-out. If he commits to UM late it doesn't mean his heart won't be in it. You bet he'll be playing his butt off for four years regardless of where he plays so he can make that paycheck at the next level. I think Green wont surprise and will go blue.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Who did they pay to design||
Who did they pay to design that? I think it's an ugly floor... and nothing says ohio sports like a cheap, janky furniture store like Value City. I'm embarrassed to live in the same state as it.

The natural endzone with the maize letters is without a doubt better than the navy turf with maize letters.

"Hey Trey, you sure you want to leave after two years?"
EDIT: Blast. I thought I looked through all of them. -1 for redundancy.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Even though I'd rather stick||
Even though I'd rather stick to Michigan's traditional navy uniforms, I don't mind them.
Plus it helps with recruiting. A lot of kids want to switch up their uniforms for something a little every once in awhile... and it could help show other uncommitted guys that Michigan isn't afraid to do that.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Michigan won by nearly as||
Michigan won by nearly as many points as they let the Bingers score.
Of course it was a boring game to watch. I couldn't expect Michigan to get amped to play a great emotional game when the game was going to be anything but. They took care of business and that's all you can ask.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||I'm sure it's hard to focus||
I'm sure it's hard to focus against a team they can beat 10 times out of 10. A sloppy start isn't that startling.

Just under 4 minutes in the first. 27-12.
Michigan shooting 50.0% from the field... 36.4% from 3.
EDIT: Bingers shooting 30% and 18% respectively
|23 weeks 1 day ago||A pretty silly move if you||
A pretty silly move if you ask me. Not because Braylon won't help... I think he will. I'm just thinking it's weird to pay somebody for the last couple weeks when the season is already lost for them. They haven't had an issue sucking with the same guys when they had a chance to make a move earlier in the season when they could salvage it.. why change that now?

Have you seen Michigan's class? What about it makes you think that the only great player Michigan has committed is Shane?

In the anals of history people are going to be talking about three things: the discovery of fire, invention of the submarine, and the Michigan-Binghamton MegaBowl.
The trophy is 12 feet high. And it is glorious. We're going to win the MegaBowl!

It will still be tough for them to replace their dline. I'd rather have Hankins and Simon than some highly rated untested sophomores and freshman.

I don't think he was doing it right...

Great catch. Jason Avant wasn't about to let Tacopants catch that one.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Michigan's defense has to be||
Michigan's defense has to be on the ball. They aren't going to win a high scoring shootout so they need to get on the board early and force Connor Shaw to force some throws. I can see USC's defense sitting on a lead pretty easily.
EDIT: This is really nice. Thanks for cutting the film up!

Good commentary. Anything is better than the Big Ten Network commentary if you ask me... l wanted to hammer tacks into my ears.

Marion Local wins the D6 final by a score of 28-21. Newark Catholic had the ball on the 6 after a pass interference call for one untimed down and the pass was batted away.
Could be a rematch in order next year as both teams playing few seniors.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Being from small school Ohio||
Being from small school Ohio in MAC country, I can tell you that Marion Local is a definite favorite in the D6 finals. They've teetered between D5 and D6 in the past few years and they could probably win either division. Looking for the MAC to add to their long list of state championships.

Bradley calls 3 timeouts in the first 8 minutes. Doesn't help.

That was the one thing I noticed on his highlight tape. He seems to chase the ball through the whistle.
I'm sure other traits would be evident if I watched a real film and not a highlight reel.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||I like this Marshall kid's||
I like this Marshall kid's motor. He needs to put on the pounds but I would love for him to be a member of the 2014 class.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||I don't disagree.. But||
I don't disagree.. But sometimes with a lack of ball pressure a player will try to force the action some. Not once did he play out of the tempo of the game. Something could be said for that.. He controlled the game well
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Burke didnt have a turnover||
Burke didnt have a turnover the entire game? That's incredible. I'm sure at this monent he isn't regretting his decision to come back. His draft stock is getting better each game.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||When kids commit early they||
When kids commit early they don't get a chance to feel out the other schools interested to see which is the best fit. I hope he feels out the other coaches and schools and decides UM is his home.
Other than that, I'm not too upset about it. Assuming Countess recovers, the corners will look to be Avery, Countess, and Taylor.. Richardson is a maybe to go there too. Depth is a minor issue but if Conley doesn't recommit I'd guarantee this class gets another CB
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Just when I thought Lou Holtz||
Just when I thought Lou Holtz was starting to give up on his annual undefeated predictions for ND, they have to go and screw it up like this. Now he's going to be high on the Irish until the day he dies on set.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||If the team takes care of||
If the team takes care of business against Ohio and whoever they play in a bowl game, the record will come. I'm not at all worried about it.
I'm more worried about Michigan winning this saturday so I can listen to all the Ohio fans around me act like the sky is falling for another year.

Remember these are high school kids. I'm pretty sure none of us got the attention that these kids get on a daily basis. I didn't know what school I wanted to go to coming out of HS and I didn't have coaches calling me every single day. If we get him, great. If not, I'm sure it isn't for lack of attention.

Since I'm a student at BGSU I went out and celebrated our victory. Good thing OU doesn't practice punt pro at practice.
May we run the ball equally as well against NW.
EDIT: Mr. Spots delivers beer to my doorstep now. It's the little things.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||I wouldn't be that||
I wouldn't be that intimidated by an UM-Florida matchup. I watched BGSU stop them drive after drive. 2 missed field goals changed the scope of the game and Florida won 27-13.
With our defense, a healthy Denard, and plenty of brunette girls for Gibbons, I think we could get a repeat of Lloyd Carr's last game.

Denard? Just keeding.
Seems like if they give it to a tackle, it would make the most sense to give it to Quinton Washington.
I could see Roh as well or maybe a corner. I'm pretty sure it won't be an offensive player though.

Looks like a good jump-ball receiver. Junior Hemmingway wasn't a speedster but he could win any jump-ball catch. I'll take another one of those. Thank you very much.
|29 weeks 23 hours ago||God bless Greg Mattison. I||
God bless Greg Mattison. I feel like he's taken his knowledge of the game and simplified his schemes for his defense so they don't have to think while playing--they can simply react to action. Remember, we still have most of a defense recruited to play a 3-3-5... wait until we fill out our defense with players better fit to play his system.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Just going to say-- when||
Just going to say-- when Denard went out of the game and it was still a close game against a good NE team IN LINCOLN, we were screwed. Unless somehow Denard managed to get back on the field during the game we were going to lose. We don't have the talent pool that Alabama has to make us be able to make up for a lose of a starting QB. If A.J. McCarron at Bama would have gotten hurt, they could pound the ball down their opponent's throat and probably pull off a win... Obviously the way our run game has looked all year outside of Denard, we couldn't do the same.
Sure, When Braxton Miller went out and Kenny Guiten(Spelling?) came in and won the game, that was an exception... but they were playing freaking Purdue. It wouldn't have happened against a decent team. Go back a few years when Oregon had Dennis Dixon and he messed his knee up: They went from a NC team to a scrub team in one game.
You lose a starting QB that brings as much to the table as Denard, and I don't care WHO you put into the game or how you call the game as an OC... you aren't going to beat a good team on the road.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||One thing I can applaud||
One thing I can applaud Bellomy on was his effort on one of his interceptions. He sprinted to make a TD-saving tackle and the defense ended up giving up only a field goal after that. If we would have had some kind of an offense, that could have been a play that changed the game.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||I'm not so sure about that.||
I'm not so sure about that. Denard is a true Michigan man. He would do anything to help his team win. He was on the sideline trying to shake the trainer's hand to show if he had his grip back after his injury. To say he just stood there and watched his team lose is a little harsh.
The way I see it, Bellomy was a deer in the headlights as it was already. He was getting coached up the whole time he was on the sideline. The last thing he needed was his senior QB teammate putting another voice in his head. He needed to calm down more than anything.

|29 weeks 4 days ago||MUST WIN B1G||
Looking across the landscape of the B1G, there is NO excuse for Michigan to not go to the Rose Bowl this year. Going 11-2 and winning a BCS bowl last year was a failure to Hoke... If we don't win the B1G this year, definitely a failure.
