As the driver of the Drake Johnson bandwagon, I am not happy about this turn of events.
I am more excited about the return of a healthy Drake Johnson than any other player.
He is a difference maker at RB and runs differently than any other player. He has a quick wiggle at full speed that can squirt through a half-open hole before it closes.
He runs "digitally" like a Frogger video game . . . in one lane, then in another lane in a microsecond, then in a third lane, all at full speed. He reminds me of my favorite Michigan RB of all time - Tony Boles.
Ohio State had no answer for him until he got hurt. Had he stayed healthy, I still believe that we would have won that game.
Watch the videos in the Running Backs preview. The man is a completely different cat.
Our two Drakes, healthy and at full speed, make us a different offense. They intorduce the dynamic threat that has been missing, and the defense having to account for them makes everybody else better.

Of course they are going to focus on Harbaugh. They are going to beat that angle to death.

|3 days 56 min ago||I read along with the JUB AMA||
I read along with the JUB AMA today and I got a bit of a feel for some of the points you make.
JUB made the following adamant point during the AMA:
(I) had over 100 people talk to me about direct experiences they had. The rule is simple: If they saw or heard it first hand, that's fair game. Second hand ends up being gossip, in my view, even when I was quite confident they knew what they were talking about. Even with eyewitness accounts, you have to consider the person's credibility and motives, and also talk to as many other people as you can to make sure they're on the mark. Just about every scene and observation in this book is either backed up with facts or multiple eyewitness accounts.
That is an admirable but very tight standard - perhaps necessary given his line of work - but it leaves us wanting more.
He had once-in-a-lifetime access to people who knew what was going on. He also has decades-long relationships with many of these folks, and as you said, he knows his Michigan subject matter inside and out.
He is not just a reporter stumbling on a new story who has to stay at a disinterested arms-length to keep from making inadvertent false or naive assumptions. I trust him to ferret out noise and here say and gossip. I want him to play that role.
You just know that there is a lot more information that he had to walk away from given his standard. But I would have rather he just told me the information and then made it clear in the cases where it is not confirmed or an eyewitness account, but the information and its source are compelling in his professional judgment. Take it with a grain of salt, but here it is.
Of course, I'm just a fan on the streets and I'm not going to sue him, so maybe I'm asking too much.
But it was one of the things I really liked about the way Brian covered the Brandon ouster and the Harbaugh search. He came right out and told us what he knew, what he didn't know, and what he thought was true given his extensive sources and professional judgment . . . but could not prove. Take it with a grain of salt, but here it is.
It gave us a feel of being part of the editorial process, what his thinking was, and why he said what he said. If he turned out to be wrong about some things, we did not freak out because we knew why he thought them.
It's a unique style that JUB is perhaps a little jealous of (he talks about him and Brian having to approach the story from different perspectives), but it is a perfectly legitimate and effective style for this type of topic.

Meh, our "blue" is not the original Michigan blue either.

Even if you actually feel that way, you keep it to yourself.
My god, I had more customer-facing tact as a teenager working the counter at a McDonalds waiting on the fat ladies who ordered a diet coke with their supersize meal.

He never seemed to mention that his "playing" for Michigan meant watching from the bench.
His view down there must have been blocked during The Game, hence he was not all that impressed by it.

Wait . . . what?

|1 week 1 day ago||This was the moment he lost||
This was the moment he lost me . . . when the Big Ten wanted to move The Game from the last weekend so that it would not overshadow a potential Michigan - Ohio State matchup in the B1G Championship game.
The Big Ten smelled money: Put Michigan and Ohio State in different divisions and sell the networks on a potential Michigan - Ohio State Big Ten Championship game.
There was just that little nuisance of them playing the week before. So we'll just move that little game right out of the way.
I was shocked to see our own AD willing to be the mouthpiece for that move . . . "Things are different now, people will just have to get used to it."
I would have expected the Michigan AD to scream bloody murder from the rafters "Over my dead body!"
Instead he was in on it. He was willing to sell us out for the chance for some extra loot.
I still think he was angling to be the Big Ten Commissioner some day and was willing to go along to get along. As always, he was looking after his own interests, not ours.

Exactly. He thought he could spin this and make it go away, the way he brushed off every other concern there was about all the other shit he pulled.

Then why don't you all have a say?
Did you hire an AD that ignores you too?
You need to have some near-riots in whatever constitutes the Diag for you guys. Make sure you have someone dress up in Michigan colors to show that you'd rather support the Wolverines than your AD.
It would especially help if you have some incriminating emails on your AD by some guy called "Buckeye Devotee".

|2 weeks 1 day ago||To their credit, Ohio State||
To their credit, Ohio State does this. It's a great idea, and I'm glad to see that we are doing it.
You want students to show up at games? Involve them.
Here are some more ideas:
Pick some at random each game to hang out on the sidelines.
Let them on the field pre-game for a certain amount of time to hang out with the players.
Dedicate one of the precious suites to the students. Pick some at random each game to sit in it each quarter. While they are there, "wine them and dine them". Treat them like they matter as much as the rich old alumni.

Can you sync it with the TV broadcast?
I have become less and less tolerant of the TV announcers that seem to show up on Michigan games. They are either boring, incompetent, or they come in with an preconceived angle that by damn they are going to throw in your face . . . regardless of what is actually happening on the field.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This is another reason I||
This is another reason I don't like noon games. Most kid activities occur around that time. Good luck setting time aside to watch a noon game.
By the time you get to 3:30 however they are usually winding up and you can actually sit and watch the game and not just sneak a peak at scores.

Love the Late Games thread.
You're doing the Lord's work there.

I don't pay much attention to Pro Football until the playoffs, but I am a College Football slut.
If allowed, I will watch College Football all day, from Game Day at 9:00 AM Saturday to Game Day Final at 1:00 AM Sunday.
If there is a game on, I will see at least some part of it.

I'm surprised that if Harbaugh is calling the uniform shots, that he did not call for a uniform he actually wore.
Maybe he will get to it in the future. The '80's road unis were the best Michigan road unis ever. They deserve a comeback.

Despite the "darkening" of the maize, none of the videos or pictures I have seen of the helmets for this year has them matching the maize stripes on those pants at all.
We can argue color tints and brightness all day, but we all will agree on this: PLEASE MAKE THE GODDAMN YELLOW ON THE HELMETS, JERESYS, AND PANTS ALL MATCH.
That's not too much to ask for for the "#1 Appreal Deal" program in the country.

A lot of people hate on ESPN, but they treat college football as a priority. They do it up right.
In contrast, I hate the way networks like Fox and NBC cover it, like they are just killing time until Sunday when their real priority kicks in.

A lot of people don't like Nippert, but i think it's really cool the way it's situated on campus.
I hope for their sake they don't ever go the Pitt route and demolish their on-campus stadium and play their games off-campus at the Bengals stadium.
Off-campus stadiums are the death of college football. Even UCLA struggles with this and they play in the Rose Bowl fergodsake.
