to play football, not to play trumpet

Just so all are clear, that is not the Adrian Arrington from Michigan but instead from Eastern Illinois who filed an action against the NCAA a few years ago. I had the same question when the litigation was filed and looked it up then!

Did anyone call this???
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Eng 325 - Rubadeau||
John is a fantastic professor and seemed to find a way to challenge all of his students to dedicate themselves to improving their writing.
Eng 401 analyzing the Bible's literary aspects with Williams 2nd. Ian Fulcher also taught an English class about comic books but I can't remember the number. Among the comics we analyzed were what I believe will be the comic inspiring the Batman-Superman movie as well as Maus.

Everything changed after that shot!
Burke and Novak T2.

|2 years 10 weeks ago||I have never turned on Devin||
True blue and the best option we have right now. He has never turned on his teammates or coaches. Just tries to do his best and keeps on fighting. So classy in post game pressers despite the clear pain he is in.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||No one seeing the positive here?||
Clearly, the players are so focused during the games that they have no idea what's going on in the crowd. No? Okay, I tried.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Next week?||
Looks like you're set for this week. If you are back next week, your headquarters should be somewhere closer to campus (Near Hoover and State St? closer to Hoover near Elbel?) so that students or other fans coming from campus before the game will pass you on way to the stadium. Good luck!
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Woohoo||
This means D-Rose should be back this week!!
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Very cool||
Thanks for sharing. Hope Denard gets a great offensive mind to put him in a position to succeed. Also very intrigued by your sig line. What's that from?
|3 years 5 days ago||Pretty funny||
the ND image is no one. I see what you did there EA Sports.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Bummer||
Thought this was going to include the vids.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Sorry||
Rookie mistake. I wanted to say your post was extremely funny, not moderately funny. OOPS. No idea what I just did.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Not in my opinion||
He seemed to be running the same PA passes and roll outs in the second half and seemed his usual nimble self while trying to evade the rush. Hope it's more of a precaution since there's so much time before the next game.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Look forward to reading it||
I want to know if he heard someone call timeout from the bench. Also, will be interesting to hear other stories from the Fab Five days to add to the 30 on 30 special. And, of course, the whole Ed Martin story would be nice too.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Can someone please||
make a GIF of the FSU fan going "what happened...what happened...scream" after that last fumble? 10:21 left 3q. Hilarious. Also, crazy tale of two halves in this UF-FSU game.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||The Anti-Zoolander||
He CAN turn left. Game changer.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Look forward to it||
Thanks for the heads up. Will be very interesting to see what stats they discuss. I believe I read an article last year that applications to Alabama both increased tremendously post national championship years. Will be interesting to see what the theme is considering the Towson trailer but also that UM was interviewed.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Sounds like a Devin Gardner stat line||
Is Devin the man to be the first Michigan QB since Henson to lead us to a win at Ohio? Bootleg td perhaps?
|3 years 11 weeks ago||2006||
This reminds me of me after seeing UCLA upset USC in 2006. I was sure that was all Michigan needed to play Ohio in a rematch. Then, Danielson-Meyer politicking (you can't play for a tltle without winning a conference!) and Florida happened...
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Great job, Al||
Good luck to the Bucks to prepare for all that plus the other O seen during Weeks 1-11.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Argh||
Will have to wait another week to get BIG tickets. Sigh.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Great job, Devin!||
Short week to turn in the WR card and start reading coverages and thinking like a qb. Maybe split snaps the rest of the year to protect Denard's arm and have defenses prep for multiple qbs? Also would help get him more game speed reps for 2013.
Finally, didn't notice much drop off from WR production by moving him back to qb. But, should say was just Minny.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||I believe...||
Denard will be the second Michigan player to receive a standing ovation at the Horseshoe. It is his destiny.
Forgot the main part of this original post. Defensively, yes. Offensively, no. Fortunately, the two units that are strongest/weakest for both teams match up.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Very impressed by the defense||
Have done the job in 7/8 games to give the offense a shot. And well , the Alabama game, they are given a pass.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Denard||
Gotta be that funny bone thing right? Hoke says it happens time to time and he loses sense in the arm. Hopefully, he has regained the feeling.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Pleased||
Think this Denard and Fitz combo will wear Neb down. Watch for breakdowns in d in 2nd half.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||That makes sense||
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Hmm||
Now that we've missed on points, I feel I should reflect on the replay standard. Conclusive evidence to overturn right? I didn't see that from the angles shown.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||roundtree!!||
earning that jersey #!!
|3 years 14 weeks ago||fitz sighting!||
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Hmm||
no kick catch interference? expect a flag thrown while game was at commercial.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Get well, soon Braxton||
Want to see a classic game in the 'shoe on November 24. Side note: Denard will be the 2nd player to get a standing O at Ohio Stadium. It is his destiny.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Great video||
60 minutes. Now, beat Nebraska!
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Haha||
You'll get hated on by most for this but I think Rich is a great coach and found a great fit. And here's to Hoke. Someone who truly does "get" Michigan.
The Hoke-Rodriguez Rose Bowl in 2014 will be a fun one.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||No prob||
I remember the game more for the Shazor hit shortly thereafter but I know Rivas gave them the lead late.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||BEST FUN FACT||
Undefeated at home under Hoke. Lezgo!
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Garrett Rivas @ Purdue 2004||
16-14 final I believe.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Credit where credit is due||
That was great.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||My fave||
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Clap Clap Clap||
Well played, sir. I hope for a similar score in Lincoln this year. It does appear that Nebraska has no problems giving up points.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Classic video||
My favorite part: "What's your name?" LOL
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Let's get it!||
Side question: Who is the high school teammate playing for WMU or Toledo?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||WHAT???||
WHY IS AVANT DOING THIS???? Who provided him with the jersey, pads, and cleats to make that catch against Northwestern???
Haha. I thought the original poster was actually asking a serious question. This was a fun post.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||I seem to remember...||
a crazy scramble and deep completion from Henson in this game but didn't see it in the video.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Tough result||
Great golf. Medinah was spectacular as well. A major needs to go back there ASAP.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Monty & Sergio||
Something about this event brings out the best in those guys. Poulter to some extent too.
It's weird there is no official color for the Euros. Saw bright orange and now purpleish.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Great start||
Love how Keegan is firing up the crowd.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Agree...||
I think he'll receive the loudest cheer for a senior that I've ever heard at Senior Day. I never thought anyone would get more than Mike Hart did a few years ago.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||So Denard is...||
Brett Favre-ish! Great and bad! Not a bad comparison, I suppose for a qb.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||If you think about it...||
he has 12-14 opportunities to showcase what he has been doing 351-353 days. It sucks one of his bad days came during one of those 12-14. Happens to all of us! Big Ten season awaits. He'll be ready. His apology video made me think back to the Tebow-Ole Miss promise and that ended well for UF.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||I guess I should put down my guesses||
Denard will need to scramble for a lot due to that D-Line's improvement. But, his scrambling will also lead to defenders forgetting their assignments and coming up to stop him which allows receivers to break free...so...
17/31, 241, 2td, 2int
22 carries, 187 yards, 1 td
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Understandable||
Denard has been close so many times. I actually thought he might get it during the Rich Rod era because so many teams needed to cheat against the run. Alas, record still stands at 4!
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Rough year for the BIG||
Crazy # of injuries it seems compared to last few years.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Five td passes would be nice....||
as it would be a school record. Shocking to me that of all the great pocket passers we've had, no one has thrown for more than 4 in one game. For Denard to do it would be prettttty sweeeet.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Perhaps he didn't want to be associated with UCONN||
when MEEEEECHIGAN comes to Connecticut and leaves with a 70-7 victory.
I'm mixed, and on the same lines with other folks. Great wins, some sketchiness. Solid career.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||I will be there||
But more importantly...will RoosterMan (of US Open, Open Championship, and Notre Dame-Navy fame) be there??
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Secondary||
Would like to see our secondary get tested again before ND. Will Air Force or Mass have any sort of passing attack to test our corners and non-Kovacs safeties?
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Great vid||
Will look for him on an NFL field next year.
|3 years 22 weeks ago||20-25||
Probably 30-25 for USC, 20-25 for Michigan, some for OU and some for FSU.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||QB OH NO!||
To Roundtree for td.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Good year to schedule Boise||
Prob not much of a contest.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Love 'em||
Michigan's are great. Oregon's are great. Notre Dame's Soldier Field unis are awful.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Great news||
We could need him if the Gardner experiment doesn't work or if injuries or other issues affect depth.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Penn State Starts practice soon right?||
I thought I read that once practice starts, a player would have to sit out a year if he practices with the team but then leaves PSU.
I have no problem with BIG schools taking PSU players. Why shouldn't our conference keep our own guys? It will be painful if Redd runs all over a BIG team in the Rose Bowl this year. At least it won't be Michigan since we are Title game bound!!
|3 years 26 weeks ago||No tickets for me!||
How sad. Hopefully, I will have some by the end of next week!
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Hahah.||
Well played, sir!
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Denard will be...||
#5 behind Matt Barkley, The Honey Badger, Robert Woods, and (darkhorse) Geno Smith of WVU. I am probably missing a dominating DL/OL but in terms of skill guys, Denard would likely not be far behind those guys.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Looks like Redd next||
Sounds like he enjoyed his visit to USC. Also, I read that Bolden's name is no longer on PSU's online roster. I imagine between 5-10 players will leave when it's all said and done.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Don't see divisions changing||
I think Wisc and Ohio and Michigan and Nebraska will be the top two contenders in each division.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Coaches Conference||
Will be interesting to see how many questions are asked to coaches and players this week? Even though NCAA is moving fast to make this happen, the questions will go on all year and then, if there is a suspension, once the team returns to the field.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||They are doing more?||
I didn't know that. What's the plan for revamping? I love all things Batman. Very intrigued!
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Thanks||
I might have to rent it and check it out.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Is the passing mode as different as advertised?||
Otherwise, I will stick with '12. Oh, and the scouting mode for recruiting? Helpful or overkill?
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Graham Elliott - Chicago||
Had some champagne and some wine. Hey, someone's gotta live up that Michigan "wine and cheese" crowd image!
|3 years 29 weeks ago||First game of my senior year||
I remember walking to the game and hearing people in the crowd saying they heard rumors that Gutierrez was hurt. Then, it was finally time for the offense to take the field. I heard all kinds of things in the stands.
"What happened to Gutierrez?" People pronouncing Henne as "Hen" and no one correcting them because no one knew! It was all confusion! Kid could play.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Very exciting||
Beilein will find a way to integrate the freshman in so they can contribute. Need Burke to stay healthy. Think we could be okay with an injury to THJ or even Morgan but need Burke.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Didn't RR get some kid named...||
Jake Ryan from outside of Cleveland? Saw him get into a couple games last year.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Great read||
Thanks for posting! Hope the people who hated on Stu get a chance to read this so they can at least try to understand what he went through!
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Reports emerging||
that the Titanic has in fact struck an iceberg.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Impressive/Unimpressive||
Ishaq Williams (barring the ridiculous late hit; gold on gold crime!!)
All receivers not named Riddick
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Tired of RR's S||
or tired of fans talking about him?
Seems like a good guy and a good coach to me! Will support the Cats for sure second only to Michigan in my college football who to root for rankings!
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Someone will pay for the band||
Obviously, I can't guarantee this but I just have a feeling that someone will pay for the band to go. If I recall correctly, when OSU went to Texas or USC a few years ago, an anonymous donor stepped up to pay the band's costs.
I would hope that we have as generous a donor somewhere out there! Calling Stephen Ross!!
|3 years 48 weeks ago||"They left him alone!"||
My favorite call of the day. Love watching the highlights of this game.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||LSU-OSU||
(1) Conference champions.
(2) OSU has defeated much better teams than Alabama. I believe 5 Top 25 wins for OSU and 2 for Alabama.
(3) No rematch. 2006!
(4) Would like to see Weeden-Blackmon against Claiborne/Matthieu (sp?).
|4 years 9 weeks ago||Loved Sushi Town||
Went there at least once a week during law school. Lived next door to it so very convenient!
|4 years 10 weeks ago||My Top 5||
|4 years 11 weeks ago||It will be what it will be||
Michigan will have a great coaching staff and recruit 25-28 highly-rated players per year. Ohio will have a great coaching staff and recruit 25-28 highly-rated players per year (okay, maybe 15-20 for a few years! HA!).
Both schools being great is just more fun for the fans. Another 1 vs. 2 game with the entire nation watching would be fabulous.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||I would prefer the Fiesta Bowl||
only so I do not have to take a day off of work to attend!
|4 years 11 weeks ago||Beat Toledo!||
It is apparently U of A's first game in 2012!
|4 years 11 weeks ago||He should...||
Remember to say "Bear Down Arizona" at least twice during his opening press conference.
Know the backstory of Bear Down Arizona.
Mention the names of a few players that the fans love.
Hire a defensive coordinator who is smart and that Rich will not want to micromanage.
Hire some assts with connections to CA and TX. He's got Florida covered by himself.
BEAT ASU. They should be going through a coaching change of their own so he should have a good shot in his first year.
Bond with EVERYONE in a leadership position at the University and attend numerous booster events.
Find the next Denard Robinson.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||Haha||
This is great. Thanks for posting. He definitely needs a DC and I'm sure he knows it. I wonder whether Casteel is top of his list or if he would try to work with someone he had never had on staff before. I haven't heard whether Jon Tenuta or Randy Shannon ended up anywhere. Maybe he will reach out to them.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||Go Rich Rod||
I predict in his opening press conference he will predict that Rhett will be the future quarterback at Arizona. :-)
I hope he does great out there and that he can get U of A to the Rose Bowl!
|4 years 13 weeks ago||LeSean "Shady" McCoy||
What a move on that short little pass inside the 10. Totally set up the defender to get all air. This game is good.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Dang||
Arizona must have gotten out of trouble in a hurry. Up by 17 now...
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Totally OT||
But don't you mean Brabbs instead of Neinberg in your signature line?
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Michigan wins big||
Huge first quarter ends with M up 21-0. Borges never lets up. 49-17 when it's all said and done. You heard it here first!!!
|4 years 13 weeks ago||It is at 330 est||
It is on mgoblue.com under the schedule
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Progressions||
I am of the belief that Denard did not have as many progressions to go through last year. I think the spread passing game Rodriguez and Magee had implemented to that point was built on one to two reads that Denard had to make quickly whereas now Borges has the wide receivers running much more complex routes and which require Denard to wait and maybe make 4 to 5 reads.
I believe Rich made the game simple for him since he was just a first year starter. I also agree that he never scrambled last year either. There is one specific play that comes to mind. Against Illinois, he moved out of the pocket and had about 15-20 yards if he chose to run. Instead, he waited and found JR Hemingway for a play that ended up as a touchdown but I vividly remember screaming "RUN" at the tv.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||I believe it will be||
the winner of Nebraska/Iowa versus Wisconsin.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Missing something||
You did not mention whether the new manager wears a headset (bluetooth) or just manages by coaching his staff and pointing.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Also...||
I fully expect the pain of this loss to be made even worse when an ESPN sidebar shows up on Tuesday that says "Big Ten Apologizes to Michigan for Incorrect Call"
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Very troubling PI miss||
but, still you win some, you lose some. Team has to recover from this by the time they get back from Iowa as they have a short week before traveling again to face another stingy defense on the road. Let's hope they can...
|4 years 13 weeks ago||LSU||
Tigers 17, Tide 14. Tide miss last second field goal to tie.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Meh||
As with any kid, hope he can right the ship!
|4 years 14 weeks ago||I'm going to go ahead||
and say Wisconsin has a new special teams coach next year...
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Was very confused||
with Paterno's timeout use down there as well. Especially if he was only going to write Power 47 on a piece of paper...
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Amazing Read||
Thanks for posting. Sometimes we demand so much of them for a simple game that we (or maybe just myself) forget that they are human and are fighting many other battles other than football. His mom would be very proud of him.
Go Molk! Go Blue!
Also, Poor Jack Miller.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||For lack of better analysis||
signing him would be great. Who was the last big safety recruit who panned out, Shazor?
|4 years 14 weeks ago||For lack of better analysis||
signing him would be great. Who was the last big safety recruit who panned out, Shazor?
|4 years 14 weeks ago||I feel like||
Jeremy Foley, Florida's AD has been pretty outspoken about oversigning issue.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||It would be best...||
for the whole 10000+ lines of notes he made to get published. :-) I know I would pay a high price to buy it!
[Edit: Since I realized my response was kinda OT, I should add that errors like this happen all the time. I remember seeing some similar game history errors in Jon Falk's recent book too. Shocked that no one catches these, but I will guess that the reviewers don't spend all their time obsessing over M Football like I do! :-)]
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Can't wait for hoops||
Steady wing play can help overcome the troubles faced by freshmen point guards trying to make the adjustment to the college game. We will need some great point guard play, however, to make it through the Big Ten tournament and NCAA tournament. I have confidence our veterans can lead the way and help Trey and Carlton along until they learn enough to show some leadership of their own down the road.
I'm also intrigued to see what Bacari Alexander can do now that he's had time to work with Jon Horford. He did an amazing job with Jordan Morgan.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Even validation prices increasing||
First year of undergrad, there was no need for validation. Then, $25-27 IIRC. Now, up to meet face! Crazy.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||TV Contracts Changed Everything||
Kids can go anywhere to get on television now rather than just the big schools. And as said above, NFL scouts are looking all over. I'm in my 20s but I have to believe if you wanted to get noticed in the past, you had to go to the bigger schools that were on tv or radio or at a minimum had a large press following like UM, ND, USC, Texas, and OU.
