"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

|2 days 16 hours ago||Happy Birthday,||
Coach Carr. From the national championship to the great players to so many games, you were in charge when my most treasured Michigan memories were. made.
|2 days 18 hours ago||RR came to||
Ann Arbor ill prepared for the bright lights and politics of a program with the history and tradition of Michigan. He believed Michigan should have been honored to have him. Compare that with Harbaugh who considers it an honor to be at Michigan. He didn't get it and the fact he continues to make any reference to Michigan is just more evidence. Hoke didn't win but he got every other aspect which Hackett acknowledged.

Nik wasn't that highly rated...71 in the country. Irvin was 6, Walton 8, Chatman 25, DJ Wilson 86 and most say Wagner would be top 100 if he played in the United States. Teske is close to being in the top 100.
Trey was rated at 142 and Hardaway wasn't even ranked.
|4 days 5 hours ago||I'll add more GR||
area experience. Participation is down dramatically. Parents seem reluctant to expose their kids to injuries and lacrosse and soccer continue to gain momentum. Beneath it all I think football is a game of physical domination (conquering heroes) and that mindset is now frowned upon.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Yes, I can||
expect Beilein to take three stars and make them title contenders. He recruits basketball brain and attitude along with having a really good eye for age and development. Then he puts these kids in a system that exploits what they do well. I like the pickup.
|5 days 12 hours ago||I don't think||
one can judge last season without mentioning the abysmal QB play or struggling OL. It wasn't all bad coaching, inexperience and a new offensive coordinator played a role. Combine a more seasoned QB, an OL that was improving and Harbaugh and 2015 will be MUCH better.
|1 week 4 days ago||Nobody has to be the||
man in a Beilein offense. That's how he turns 3* into NBA picks.
|1 week 6 days ago||I don't think||
Carr did that (at least to this degree) and he turned out some pretty good QBs.
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||We excel||
despite them apparently.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Didn't Brandon||
begin this when they assigned staff to the booth? The Morris incident demonstrated the need, had Hoke been Harbaugh more people would have figured out the problem with the set up, not the coach.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Wow, it's||
disheartening to read how many here think this is funny.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Dubuque,||
Doo-boo-k as I like to call it isn't like Iowa I knew driving through Iowa on my way to Colorado. There are actual hills and bluffs with great views of the Mississippi River. The museum is nice and there used to be what they called the elevator fir a ride up a bluff. Galena is a better spot to eat, wander around, look at shops, etc.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Izzo manages||
to get the least from the most...so there is that.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I liked OKC||
before they drafted Mitch. I would love for them to win it all next season. One thing is for sure, unless the Clippers are in the finals, I'll be rooting from anyone from the West to defeat the Cavs.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||What recruit||
recently said that JB is able to turn lightly recruited kids into NBA picks? I am starting to think that is a 5* recruiting problem, or at least something being used against Michigan.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||1989 Illinois||
semi-finals...Higgins with a final second put back for the win. I think the Wolverines had lost 2 two them in the regular season. That was a great Illinois team.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||How did he shred||
the Michigan Man idea? I know what he said but he hired a Michigan Man who is all about what it means.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Kind of like||
he said FU to his coach during the playoffs?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Maybe it's been||
covered but I think Nike will make a difference to recruits, even if it's just the familiarity. Every little thing that helps a recruit feel at home or confirms an association he already has is a plus.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||He's declined||
slowly over the last 3 or so years. The key for him is if he can learn to pitch without an upper 90s fastball. Other pitchers have but I am not sure he's got it in him.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Great news.||
I really like how many of the softball players salute the university. It is an integral part of their motivation and pride.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||That's a pretty||
serious allegation to post naked of any specifics. Having said that, I wouldn't be surprised if Alexander made some missteps.
|5 weeks 10 hours ago||That's good||
school weather, in a city with things to do. Summer is for the beach.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||It will be a bit||
hypocritical when he treats a player differently or fans bitch about another program's handling of a similar situation or we refer to Michigan's standards/expectations as being higher. Usually there is one right way and a million excuses for choosing a different path.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||It's indisputable||
that he develops talent. The question is if his system stymies the development of NBA skills. I don't see it, at least for guards/wings. A guy who is more athletic or skilled would flourish.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I have to agree.||
If he has a problem with alcohol, the least should have been a leave of absence and treatment center. As I've been told Moeller wouldn't agree to that course and lost his job as a result.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||It's tough for me||
to understand how an adult consumes that amount of alcohol and gets in a car. I don't think someone who doesn't regularly drink could have that much alcohol and reasonably function.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||So kids who make||
their decisions quickly should be punished? It seems a lot of people here were pissed that Battle ate up an offer just to buy himself some time but you are suggesting that it's okay for coaches to use kids that way? What about Weber and all of the ranting that caused...they hid a coaching change not a plan to pull an offer.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Sorry but||
that's the way a group of coaches that everybody here rushes to condemn play the game. If that's what Harbaugh and Michigan aspire to then fine...but let's also drop the BS about caring about the kids, the Michigan difference and all the rest.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||This was a very||
disappointing read. What else can be said. No amount of winning ever makes up for the loss of integrity and advertised values.
