People thinks it's funny, but it's not. It's stupid. It's the ESPN syndrome where no one gives a shit anymore and they still shove it down your throat.
This topic, just like Tom Brady's Michigan Manliness, just like "Oakland is still in play"...is played out and old and 99% of the posters on this board truly don't care or think its cute.
But there's always someone willing to be "that guy."

Before you pass judgement?
Not saying you still can't like him, but I don't see how something that you don't even know is true would have anything to do with it.
You also realize that story was in 2008? It was also shot down by the restaurant.
What I can't stand most about LeBron haters isn't that they hate LeBron...he's an easy target and gives plenty of good reason.
It's that many LeBron haters find examples from when this guy was 22, 23, 24 years old and make that out to be him as a person and as a man.
It's bullshit. Let me give you millions of dollars, no advanced education, a rougher upbringing, thousands of friends and family with their hands out, fame, and a leadership role and face of a billion dollar industry...and watch you make NO mistakes as a young man.
And his mistakes are so simple when you look back at it...it's not a "go to jail mistake." It's a public relations mistake, lol.
People wanted young adult LeBron to be a grown man and compared him to how grown men should act.
You know why people like LeBron more now? Because he's a grown fucking man now and he acts like it more often than not. At 22, he acted is age!
Now's he's 30. Any 30 year old will tell you, that's where you still hold on to a little bit of your youth (like dancing in the cold tub with your teammates rapping to a horrible song that high school kids listen to)...but by and large, you're an adult and act and sound like one. That's today's LeBron, like any other 30 year old I know. 15% young adult, 70% adult, 15% old ass man. That's what being 30 is.
I guess because he's always looked older, people expected him to act older.

UTL I was awesome when it was done. It felt like homecoming and going back to the old. We had Hoke, we had MANBALL. We had THIS IS MICHIGAN. We had nostalgia everywhere. The presentation was awesome.
We were the only school in the country at the time with the letter on the front of the jersey. That was unique, that was Michigan. Leaders. You can't knock those except for the rips.
UTL II didn't have alternate jerseys, it was the legends patch and Devin went bonkers in the #98.
UTL III went all blue
...all 3 were well done when they were done, I don't think any of them need to be REdone - but great job the first time around. The Alabama jerseys weren't bad. The Outback Bowl's were awful because you couldn't see the numbers. And the bumblebees...we do not speak about the bumblebees.
In the end, Michigan doesn't need to be wearing alternate jerseys period. I don't care if it's Nike, Adidas or Tommy Gear. We just don't need it. And the fact that we'd make a multimillion dollar decision based off alternate jerseys for the football team is ridiculous. If this even comes into discussion everyone in the room should be slapped.

Nike now puts gold and silver swooshes on jerseys and they have that flywire shit we'll have to have. Oh well, still better than Adidas I suppose.
I'm scared about the basketball and hockey jerseys. I just want to create a look and stick to it. WD always talks about how we've changed hockey like 6 times in 6 years or something crazy. This is Michigan, find something iconic and stick to it, DAMMIT. Especially in those 3 sports. I'd argue the same for WBB, BA, and SB as well. Let volleyball, field hockey and lacrosse get all crazy with the uniforms.
I think Basketball should only wear a modern version (maize, blue, and white options) of the Cazzie Russell's
I hate Duke, but I love the simple jerseys they went back to last year...Michigan could do the same (in all 3 colors)
Very clean...same with the blue version they had on the road. Hopefully Nike can put a modern spin on the Cazzie's and keep them clean like the "new" Duke uniforms. Kentucky had them too.

|2 days 12 hours ago||I shouldn't let these posts get to me...but they are infuriating||
I think I'm going to make a thread about this at some point to explain the significance of the $4 million annually.
I repeat, spend that money on the new Field Hockey center and then go ask those girls which they prefer. Go spend the money on the new Rowing Center and then ask the rowers.
And it's not just about facilities. That money could go towards a lot of things. As an Associate AD, here's just some of the things I'd spend it on...
These are just some thing I literally thought of as I'm typing, I could make a much better list if I gave it some thought. We all could.
So the point isn't that some folks prefer Adidas over Nike..I don't think I've seen one person mention that. I know I don't, I hate Adidas. However, I like money, I know how that additional revenue can affect my student athletes. I'm not going to be the administrator to say "sorry Volleyball team, I know this bus ride back from Minnesota sucks. I realize it's going to be tough to get to class when you get in at 3am. But damn, you all looked great tonight in that Swoosh!"
If someone can tell me that there is no penalty to ANYONE or ANYTHING for going with Nike. Then let's do it. No question. It's better, it's what the students want, it's just better. But the switch cannot be at the expense of anything.

...it was also the correct color of maize. No idea if there was any connection to Nike or Adidas though.
|3 days 23 hours ago||None||
...and that's not how Title IX works by the way.
|4 days 2 hours ago||NIKE did it first||
Adidas just kept it and kept the money flowing because highlighter sells more than maize in this day and age. Neon in general sells more right now. So for a money driven AD like Brandon...why would he ask them to switch if Nike had already started it and it was generally accepted and the money was good?
Changing back is just as much about money...they know people will go out and buy a bunch of new shit once the shade changes again. That feeling of nostalgia with Harbaugh coming back...going back to the old shade of maize, etc. These aren't stupid people even if the decision itself is stupid.
|4 days 2 hours ago||The moment he says one negative thing about Michigan...||
|5 days 15 hours ago||Again...no doubting that||
But which athletes? Because if Adidas give $4 million more and that creates a better experience for athletes. I will take that.
If Adidas money gets them home on a plane versus a long bus ride...and they can recover quicker or get to bed and get more sleep for class the next day, that should matter. And we're not talking football.
If Adidas money allows a sport to recruit nationally and get the best players...that is more important to me than average players in Nike.
If Adidas money allows for better facilities to recruit from and for student athletes to use. Or new things like a nutrition center...then that is bettering their experience.
Like I said before...it could be providing a huge benefit to student athlete welfare or student athlete experience or the competitiveness of a particular program.

This argument is awful...please do some research first.

Because those people don't make decisions in a vacuum.
|5 days 15 hours ago||You do not know this...||
just stop it.
If Adidas is what built the new FH complex...you want to ask those girls which they prefer?
You're missing the point people keep beating over your head. YES if all is equal, Nike is preferred...we all get this. But all is not equal and if that 4 million is going back to the athlete or provide a service, then the decision may be different.
You don't know if it's Adidas + something vs. Nike and nothing more. Think of it like sports...and a trade. If you're also getting cash or draft picks, that sweetens the deal rather than just a player for player trade.
Until we know what that $4 mil a year does every year...it's silly to keep bringing up this poll. What if it allowed teams to fly instead of bus? What if it offers more money in their recruiting budget so they can compete even better or recruit nationally? What if it allows all sports to take a foreign trip every few years? What if it builds or renovates a facility?
Let the student athlete know that stuff THEN go ask your question. Same with coaches. If it's still Nike then cool...but right now it's moot.
|5 days 15 hours ago||In basketball it matters...in||
In basketball it matters...in football, having a coach who is a figurehead in the sport is FAR more impactful.
However the entire FSU, OSU, Alabama argument is so stupid for so many reasons. Their situation is not Michigan's situation. They shouldn't even be compared. If Auburn...a UA school wins this year should we go to UA?! Such strange logic. Make the best decision for MICHIGAN. It does not have the same circumstances as FSU, OSU or Alabama and what is best for them may or may not be what is best for us.
|5 days 15 hours ago||Home jerseys yes||
I have always wanted Adidas to do a small center logo like that Nike swoosh.

which makes this OP so weird...you don't have to watch, or know random facts like Mark Rypien's daughter plays to know it exists. Hope he knows there is now a major soccer league in America too.
And what's with all the moral PC? Disgrace to football? Who the fuck compares this to real football? Do they think WWE/WWF is wrestling? They're both entertainment...that's it. And what they wear is no different than half the shit already on TV.
Or what about beach volleyball? Is the fact that they're a "real" sport and they're crazy talented mean they can wear nothing and it's okay? They don't HAVE to wear what they do...look at the sport at the college level.
Look at the dancers in football and basketball...all there for the same purpose as this league, entertaining. If this disgusting then so is all of that. Courtside girls in the NBA...Google the video of Al Horfords little brother. Ringside girls in boxing or MMA, same thing. Entertainment. No one watches them for informational purposes.
Let's be consistent. In reality most people don't pay attention to the vast majority of it. But some do...and that's fine, but this league is no different than other forms of entertainment where girls where next to nothing for a predominantly male audience. And there are other women's sports leagues where women wear the same or less...so no matter which angle you look at this, it's silly to single the LFL out other than it just plain sucks.

This is the same thing.
That's what's wrong with people these days...in the era of reality TV that is so far from reality, just has real people...we take anything that is on the TV or big screen and act like it's supposed to be the truth. It's not. It's supposed to be entertainment. That's all.
I don't care if it's Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, Lincoln, Wolf of Wall Street, 42, Remember the Titans, Selma, American Sniper, etc. --- it was made to entertain people, not to educate people.

|1 week 2 days ago||I've had him to the Pistons for months...||
But he blew up late in the year and he won't go past 6.
I now think the Pistons should trade down and get Devin Booker along with a SF (in the trade).
You can play Booker with KCP or you can have some more offensive firepower at the wing position.
In the 2nd round, pray for Rakeem Christmas to fall to the Pistons, he'd be a nice backup in the post. He's played extremely well in workouts and may have moved into the first round.

|2 weeks 39 min ago||I still watch ATH and PTI||
...because I REFUSE to watch 3 hours of NFL bullshit. So stupid.
I usually have ATH on when I get home and I don't sit down and watch, but it's background noise and I'll stop if I hear something interesting. I still watch PTI, but not for the insight, more just watch and because I've always watched.
However, like we said, as those two have gotten older it's gotten worse and worse. They just scream at each other and make predictable arguments.
I rarely watch SportsCenter anymore, it's TMZ Sports, I can't stand it. Which is sad, because I used to watch every, single, day.
They were already getting too TMZ, but that NFL contract ESPN signed ruined it. They are REQUIRED to designate x amount of hours to NFL programming and it's some insane number. Then they have to include NFL in all of their other shows.
It's awful and it's ruined ESPN's coverage of college football because they no longer have time to talk about anything other than major news. Even in season. I miss the days were ESPN used to show highlights of all top 25 games in the country...and they'd at least touch on every game from all of the major conferences in addition to other scores.
Now it's SEC, scandal of the week and whoever else may be hot that year. But even that pale's in comparison to the NFL slurping.
They DO NOT CARE that there isn't one single person outside of Boston that gives a shit about deflategate anymore...they just don't, they're going to pump it all day/every day.
|2 weeks 46 min ago||OH LEH DOOO IT!!!||

Love that they laugh and have open coversations with random topics.
On every other ESPN show it would've went like this:
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||No way at ALL||
Certainly they can be self-serving if that's what you mean...but if you actually listen to them, they are by FAR the best thing on ESPN because they don't pump the machine that is ESPN.
They're far more Grantland/Bill Simmons without being AS much of a jerk about it.
That is the best comparison I give you.
But their insight and analysis is far more what real people actually talk about and a lot less what ESPN wants them to be saying.
These two and SVP & Russillo is all that ESPN has now. At least these four say the stuff no one on ESPN will. They're not trying to win the popularity contest and they're not trying to be different just to be different either (like Olbermann who always has to have the opposite opinion).
Mike and Mike sucks, it's just NFL and SportsCenter topics over and over. Around the Horn and PTI are consumed with the same ESPN slant on everything and the PTI guys are getting old and they're "losing it." They're just not as sharp anymore and I always hate when I'm constantly correcting the people I'm watching on TV. Or they are OBVIOUS points that both Tony and Mike miss now and it drives me nuts...they blow lay-ups in their discussion all the time.
If you actually listen to LeBatard and Jones and SVP/Russillo, they're smart guys or smart enough to engage in a thoughtful discussion even if you don't agree.
You shouldn't ever compare them to Stephen A and Skip Bayless. That show is scripted. Those are actors. You may as well be watching the Kardashians, that's what it is...Kardashians for dudes.

And Norfleet won't want to sit if he transfers...
IMO, this sounds like a case of trying to get the kid through those last few credits so he can get a degree and get out versus him actually being back on the team (unless he has to retake classes to graduate from Michigan due to failing some this spring).
I'll wait and see what happens at the end of the summer. I assume he'll make up any classes over the summer that he may have flunked this spring...then we'll see if he's on the team.
It doesn't make any sense for Norfleet or Michigan to end the relationship if he's a few credit hours from a diploma...both would take a hit. No one is going to sit a year as a transfer for a few credit hours and no school is going to swallow and APR hit over a few hours.

No, it's an Aztek or one of those stupid Cube cars...or a PT Crusier with woodgrain on the side. It's ugly, period. It has nothing to do with the color.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I didn't say that...||
But a bunch of shit from 20 years ago is ugly now...it's cheating.
And I could easily see starter jackets come back, everything goes in cycles. Just like the high top fade that is back now. Just like the mohawk goes in and out. Skinny jeans to baggy jeans to skinny.
In 5 years kids could be wearing these again and people think they're the coolest thing ever.
But that's besides the point, taking someone old is cheating, IMO. No one is wearing it now. Do better.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I didn't say BTN wasn't doing well||
I didn't say BTN wasn't doing well, I said they have barely enough content to hold interest.
I'm willing to bet very few people actually watch BTN like they watch ESPN. No one watches it year around...but it's got enough content (barely) to justify paying for it year around (which I don't - I cancel it right after March Madness and don't pick it back up until mid-August...which doesn't save me THAT much, but it's the thought that counts).
BTN survives as a luxury channel and you have enough people in BTN country and beyond that will pay to have it year around even if they don't always watch it, because it's value during football season and basketball/hockey season makes it worth keeping and not worrying about.
Even if your team sucks, there's still barely enough content. It's the same principle as all these bowl games...people like football. So yes, people are going to watch Iowa and Rutgers, just because it's college football. Myself included. During basketball season, I think it has more to do if your team is playing well, but there are enough teams that are playing well and a reasonable amount of big time matchups to make it worth the average viewers while.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||A bunch of teams still do...||
And the poster acts like having blue socks and maize and blue cleats isn't original, like every other school is wearing that combo and we're just one of the rest.
It was a weird statement on both levels.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Huh?||
White socks and black shoes distingushed us from everyone else?
Think about what you just said.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Charles Woodson on the top, Rob Renes at the bottom||
...it says "I'm highly touted, but I'm underutilized"
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Denard covered it up.||
Once he left, it was truly a mess. Who was the fastest player Hoke ever recruited for offense? Norfleet? And he didn't even want him, he just had an extra scholarship.
Drake Johnson and Devin Funchess? Jeez Brady.
There is no reason we shouldn't have a speed RB and a couple of burners out at WR. You can still MANBALL everyone to death with some speed on the edge.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I've seen Gallon a couple of times||
He's a solid WR, I was impressed. That said, he provides nothing in the speed category. Kind of another Darboh.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Starter jackets were awesome||
I also call b/s...you're pulling up stuff that was in style 20 years ago and calling it ugly now. That's cheating.
All of these were "in style" in the early/mid 90s.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||blue socks look way better||
But because we were good with the white socks, people are going to say white...like it made a difference.
Also like the maize and blue cleats over black.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Whats wrong with any of that?||
Boo this man.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||(No subject)||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||(No subject)||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||(No subject)||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Makes sense...||
I'll take it...we need all the help we can get at that position. We have ZERO speed because Brady Hoke lives in 1996 where manball and WRs that are todays TEs were a dime a dozen.
It's to the point where if we have 2 grad transfer spots, Harbaugh needs to find every D1 grad transfer race and just take the fastest 2.
Our team speed on offense is embarrassing, in fact, it's a joke.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||It was a stupid idea from the beginning||
No one fanbase is ever going to support an entire major network like this.
I think it could've worked if it was internet based only, but as a channel...nobody wanna see that shit.
I mean if there was a Wolverines Sports Network, would really be watching it other than because we wanted to say we have the Wolverines Sports Network? Hell BTN is barely enough content to hold interest, but they get decent games during football and basketball season to keep them going for the year. Toss in a little bit of original programming and a decent non-football or basketball game every now and again and you can justify it...barely.
Texas got greedy and it bit them in the ass. I don't even think ND could've pulled it off.
Texas would've survived if this was a state wide thing...Universities and pro teams, then it basically becomes Fox Sports Texas. That would've worked.

There is literally no reason not to bring Beilfedt back at this point...
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Which is how it should be...||
Bully people, the block M with no lettering is MICHIGAN. Period. Let other folks write their name across their version.
The Alabama point is well taken. And yes, there are schools that have their name written in their logo...but the point is, they have a primary logo.
Now if we want to have some kind of secondary mark, like a Script "Michigan" or Wolverine logo, or whatever...that's a completely different discussion. But don't modify your primary mark over and over.
The biggest issue was all of the secondary vendors that would use the unapproved marks.
Just do a Google search and see all of the variations. It's stupid. You don't want people walking around wearing 25 different versions of your logo just like you don't want each of your athletic teams with a different logo.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Dave or not...||
I actually agree that we should limit the number of logos and use one primary logo. It was getting out of hand, there were like 15 versions. Maybe more than that...someone had to settle it down.
Just use 1-2 logos with maybe a couple variations based on the background and call it a day.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Branding||
...you'll understand when you get older.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Likewise...||
We have a bunch of big guys...give me a couple 4.3's who can catch, I don't care how big they are.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Goodness Gracious!||
We all have to take a step back and realize the comp, but DAMN...that was LOCK DOWN. His technique is ridiculously good and his recover speed is even better.
Lewis, Countess and Lyons? Yes please.
With a senior Jarod Wilson and the best player on the team in Peppers at safety?
These guys haven't proved anything together, so they shouldn't get the hype (regionally or nationally) right now...but by season's end - that will be the best secondary in the B1G. One of the top groups in the country. I promise you.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||(some) Secondary violations are GOOD||
Any athletics director will tell you this...it shows that you're monitoring your program.
I've had athletics directors encourage a secondary or two once it comes time to report to the NCAA just so they don't look out of place.
You obviously don't want an egregious number, but you also don't want zero. Zero is a red flag and a clear sign of failure to monitor.
There isn't a person on earth who knows the NCAA rule book inside and out, not even at the NCAA. They know people are going to slip up, they expect some violations.
Just respond accordingly and keep them to a minimum.
Now if you have major violations, that's an entirely different story.
Even folks at the NCAA will tell you this...

Don't care if he might whoop my ass in real life, as long as I got a good punch for this question and this thread.
We're questioning Tom Brady AND bringing up the "Michigan Man" term all in one question/thread. That's at least grounds for a judo chop to the throat.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly.||
And just play them at home sites so at least you have some fans there and the travel is less for the fans.
Just basically make it a Pre-Spring Game.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Does anyone REALLY want to watch this?||

They still wrote inaccurate pieces when Hoke was Coach...RR hasn't been around for AWHILE and the Freep STILL sucks.
Through Hoke, through the coaching search, etc. - they've still done the exact same thing they did when RR was coach.
Sharp still slurps MSU and gets every jab in he possibly can. They're still a bunch of hacks.
Fire the trolls and maybe you can be a decent news source again. But that's not what they want - they want the views.
Just like ESPN has hacks, but they create controversy and people tune in and watch First Take or some of the idiots they roll out on SportsCenter just because it's TMZ level entertaining.
The Freep knows negative controversy sells, it gets views, it creates a buzz...so they run with it.
The bigger issue is that they have staff members with a truly biased opinion - yet they don't write opinion pieces...if they only wrote opinion pieces it wouldn't be a huge deal. But they let these guys spew nonsense and report it as fact.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Still won't read...||

We could have a number of late round picks though.
You could have one of the RBs if we had a breakout runner - especially Isaac or Green because of physical tools.
Kalis or Glasgow if they get their shit together and whoop up on people.
A healthy Taco has NFL tools if he put a full season together...any of the LBs and Countess are about it.
But you're asking these guys who, to this point, haven't shown NFL ability to all of a sudden have All-American type years.

No rhyme intended.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||This was also already mentioned||

|3 weeks 5 days ago||What is going on?||
All of these have been mentioned?
I feel like this is the worlds most delayed double post.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Exactly.||
That's my biggest pet peeve, if you're an NFL team, don't just worry about YOUR board...worry about everyone elses too.
And no one else was going to take this guy...they could've waited until the 7th round if they true LOVED the kid. You can say the same about 2-3 other Lions picks. It's fine that you LOVE the kid...but see where the demand is and slot your pick accordingly.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||He can probably enter the sup draft||
I assume if he's taken in the 2nd or 3rd round there then it'll be more than a 5th-7th round pick in this year's draft? Hell, I dunno. Just a bad situation all the way around.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||If I could set one up so that only you all could view...||
I'd just point my iPad at the TV. It actually works pretty well. The problem is the sound.

I really don't think me paying $15 and bringing a 12-pack is that big of a deal.
Another friend is going $15 and wings, another $15 and pizza, and so on...TVs are 60-70 inches these days and most of us have one or know someone that has one.
It's really not that big of a deal to me. Shit to go to the movies it would cost me more because that's a 2nd ticket. The guys are covering the costs tonight and girlfriends/wives are welcome to join.

Mayhew is always the WORST in the late rounds, don't even know why I bother.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Lions are up...||
I really think you get Bennett or Ekpre-Olmu knowing that you're more likely to "hit" at that position having 2 DTs or 2 CBs in this draft.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I hope we (Lions) draft...||
In no order...
...with this upcoming 5th round choice.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||You are correct||

There goes Diggs...
Maybe Kenny Bell, another B1G WR?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Since we're talking OT||
Would you draft La'el Collins at this point?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Slot WR, IMO||
I'd go OT in the 6th and best edge rusher on the board in the 7th.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Who else do we have left?||
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Shaq Mason||
Shaq Mason's full name is Shaquille Olajuwon Mason.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||WOW||
Bill Polian said Jake Ryan was his favorite player in the DRAFT.
That's one heck of a stamp of approval!
They just raved about JMFR, that was awesome.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||GREAT fit.||
AJ Hawk is gone Matthews is still in his late 20's, but he feels like he's in his 30's on the verge of retirement. I think Jake has a long career with GB.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Whoa.||
That was weird.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Can you dig it? WE CAN DIG IT!|

Stefon Diggs to Michigan!!!??????

In all honesty, he'd be a GREAT fit as a slot and return man.
