I couldn't blockquote the entire article—he talked a lot about the opporunity to play with Josh Rosen and how much he respected Jim Mora as a coach.

...it's pretty apparent the level of competition caveats also apply to his own team. He had to do a lot on his own.

Fifth-year senior. Got a medical redshirt after he tore his ACL a couple years ago.

...since his statement in that article was pretty vague—didn't even mention a date—but Sam just confirmed it's a distinct possibility he'll visit this weekend:

...for me to write a post on it while all the football stuff is going on. Other than Brown rescheduling his visit, there hasn't been much of note other than it looking like M is falling behind Kentucky and Duke for Derryck Thornton.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||No, he's playing.||
Just has a very limited role right now—23 minutes combined in the four Big Ten games, including a DNP against Iowa. He's put up decent numbers but mostly against the lesser teams on the schedule.

Tried to change it, got an error. Working on getting it fixed but I can't do it from my computer, apparently.
If anybody has figured out a workaround after getting this error message...

with the new staff, I believe. Like I said, it's hard to throw a dart without hitting a recruiting insider who strongly believes Wheatley will end up at Michigan.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||No.||
There are plenty of interested players, and "banking" scholarships is usually a bad idea in football—creates the type of holes in the depth chart Michigan has been struggling to fill for years now. For instance, with Bosch now out the door, they really need to grab a couple O-linemen or there's going to be a serious lack of upperclassmen after the 2013 group (and Mason Cole, who didn't redshirt) graduates.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||You're new here...||
...so I'll cut you some slack, but when your avatar mysteriously disappears after an entire board thread is dedicated to NSFW avatar pictures, it's not coincidence. Try again. There's an entire rest of the internet out there and there are a ton of people on here who want to be able to scroll through the comments of a game preview without having to hide the screen from work/family/friends/etc.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||All three...||
...fall squarely in the "not happening" category; I know George Campbell has flat-out stated he won't consider Michigan, and there's been nothing to indicate the other two are thinking about it.

Will be streamed on MGoBlue and televised on ESPN and BTN.

EMU is #116 on KenPom—they're a legitimately decent MAC squad.
NJIT is #266.
Coppin State is #335.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I'm not a doctor...||
...and the only way I got a proper diagnosis was by seeing several of them. I'd strongly recommend against trying to diagnose yourself online. With my symptoms, I was told via WebMD or various forums (including this one) that I could have anything from Crohn's to lupus to histamine intolerance to... you name it, really. I don't think one person got it right.
If you're having those issues, give your primary care physician as much information as you can possibly assemble about your symptoms and push him/her to get you to as many specialists as seem appropriate. That's the best advice I can give; it's how I approached the issue this time around and it seems to be working.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I posted an update...||
...in the Arizona preview last week. People are still misinterpreting some of that, so I'll try to clarify.
I want to make it abundantly clear that I don't have a diagnosis; Seth read my Twitter post, got that wrong, and didn't talk to me before posting that. I tested positive for adrenal insufficiency and have begun treatment on hydrocortisone, and my initial response has been positive, but I still don't know whether it's primary or secondary—my endocrinologist actually suggested in my follow-up appointment Wednesday morning that it's likely secondary. I'm still awaiting test results on that, as well as biopsy results from my colonoscopy/endoscopy, and there's still almost certainly a need to see a rheumatologist to figure out what's driving the gland issues.
I'm back right now in a limited capacity. My weight has improved, though over the last couple days it's fluctuated a bit; I'm hanging down around 120 pounds today. There's been significant progress and I'm generally feeling better, but I'm still not planning to cover games in person this month—those are a huge stress on me physically and I can't afford to take many steps back right now.
Overall, things are moving very much in the right direction, but there's still a long way to go. The good news is I've worked through these issues while being un- or mis-diagnosed for nearly four years; I know how to push through while being physically limited, which I'll most likely have to do since the timetable for returning to normalcy after a decade of untreated adrenal insufficiency can—and likely will—span months. My hope is to be feeling normal by the summer barring a diagnosis that would change that outlook.
|8 weeks 23 hours ago||Thank you, everyone.||
Once again, the outpouring of support from this community is damn near overwhelming (in a good way, of course). I'm very lucky to be a part of this. I'm in high spirits, settled in for a weekend of football—and, uh, hopefully a basketball victory—and very confident I'll be back at full strength before long.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Oops.||
|10 weeks 1 day ago||The larger point...||
...that I perhaps didn't make clear enough, is that from my perch on press row—which provided the ideal view for seeing this play unfold—it was very, very obvious Walton planned to do exactly what he did from the moment he got the ball. He was in total control in transition last night, that's become the norm for him, and he's seeing the court remarkably well.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Fine, then.||
Peruse the comments after last year's Duke game. Like this one:
Let's Be Honest
GRIII doesn't even deserve to be starting.

Not only is this absolutely none of our business, the insinuation that anyone's sexual orientation or gender identity is a bad thing won't be tolerated here.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Devin Gardner INTs V. Jameis Winston||
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Statistically, sure.||
Which is why I also looked at Irvin's sample from last year. Oh, and watched the tape of every single shot from this season to perhaps pick up on some trends, which I then expanded upon.
If we're going to wait for sample sizes to be big enough, might as well just not write about basketball until February or so. I don't think that's the way to go, nor do I believe that small samples make it impossible to learn things about the team so long as there's information utilized aside from pure statistics.
In short: come on, read the post, including the explicitly stated sample size caveat. If you can't do that, feel free to just move along.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Yikes.||
Gone. Sorry that was up for long ... lots to moderate right now.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Bans/deletions||
Cleaned up a LOT from the Clark FP post and thread. Victim-blaming (or even the insinuation of) is totally unacceptable, and there's a hell of a lot more that wasn't okay, either. If you were banned, email me, and don't expect much sympathy.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Fair warning.||
If comments above or below no longer make sense, it's because of serious moderation that's apparently required. Hair trigger for bans on this subject. Consider this fair warning.

Snowflake from user who's posted a ton since signing up recently... with a link to their blog in the sig. That's why you've got the blog.

Okay, here goes. Jake Ryan would get a star if Jake Ryan still played strongside linebacker in an under front. That's not the case. He's a MIKE in an over, and while he's decent, he's not a star at that position—this site prides itself on the UFRs, which bear that out, and not relying on stuff like Big Ten Whatever Of The Week. (Remember Brandon Herron, National Defensive Player Of The Week? He started one game that season.)
Seth does the diagrams each week. He put Jake Ryan on the cover of HTTV. If he thought Ryan merited a star, he'd have one. He doesn't, and I agree with the decision.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Yes.||
"Bad" sprain of the ankle, reportedly. Unless it's a truly awful sprain, though, I don't think it'll affect Big Ten season.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Nope.||

No, the satire tag did not, in fact, make that any more acceptable.
