- 0 offensive playmakers? I count 3: Rudock Peppers Butt... say that 3 times fast!
- Massive injury problems? Ryan Glasgow is a significant injury, I'll give you that... Ojemudia... also an impact but if RJS remains healthy it's not a big drop. Who else? Possibly Dymonte Thomas. MASSIVE is not an accurate descriptor. I have no data, but I'll guess at least half of FBS teams are worse off w/injuries to starters.
- want them
- have a shot at deserving them

I imagine a convoy of U-hauls laden with couches. The rest is too horrible to describe..

how your posts have nothing to do with your username.

if both receivers are held, the defenders are also occupied if they're holding and Watson has a free run into the end zone.

he confused the officer by getting into a 3 pt stance, thus making himself appear smaller and less threatening before displaying the explosiveness off the ball that got him a scholarship in the first place.

I mean c'mon.. this is a Michigan blog fergodsakes. We'll have Michigan 23's to compare to or we won't have any 23's to compare to at all!

If the sleeves were Maize down to a few inches below the elbow... now THAT would be even amaizeinger.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||I was at that game||
Dont remember which year, but probably 85 or 87.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Butt wait...||
Butt's shown some real wiggle pulling in balls, whether streaking wide open down the middle or driving a hard out and up on the backside of the defense, those nimble moves have carried Butt all the way to score again and again.
Whoa... maybe a little overboard there.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Also 13 year old self at that game...||
We were sitting in Section 8, row 83... waaay up there, but it was the perfect angle to see the throw. As soon as it left Harbaugh's hands everyone in the section stood in anticipation of the inevitable completion.
Kolesar had his man beat easily and was streaking under the pass to meet the ball. I raised my arms overhead in excitement because I knew it was going to be a completion at the height of the throw...
Not sure I'd have that same unshakeable faith had I known that Kolesar couldn't see a damn thing! Wow.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Are you kidding?||
|1 year 14 weeks ago||yep||
I think you have to consider Chesson a playmaker. He's likely going to have himself a pro career if he can continue to improve his ball skills and body control.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Whoa Nelly!||
I think you're getting a little over dramatic...
That said, I find it unlikely that we'll win the B1G... but dammit, I'll HOPE we do.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||No, we put in||
No, we put in the guy who passes like he's punting.
Devin had been practicing as a receiver for some weeks and so wasn't deemed better than the arm punter to get some qb time after Denard went down.
It was awful.
It was my 40th birthday.

You are too easy Boner!
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I was on my way to posting||
I was on my way to posting similar sentiments.
Totally agree... it's an excuse to play with the baggy jerseys hanging low.
But I wouldn't be surprised if the subtlety of these obnoxious shorts was missed and the negative feedback undermines the strategy.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||agree||
I saw this over and over. Smith practically coming to a stop at the line.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||drunk humor||
Finally got back to this. Late night drunk humor really needs a sympathetic audience! Don't you all sort by ''Hot'' posts? It clearly indicated we were in 2nd place behind OSU-VT live blog.
Next time I'll post on Steve Sarkisian's blog on Saturday nights for a more sympathetic audience.
Came away from this one fairly unscathed although I gotta say, that Michael Jordan gif really hurt!
|1 year 24 weeks ago||useless facts||
facts cannot withstand the power of misconception.
that and we still got outscored on our board!
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Yes||
Clearly the best talent we've had in the def. backfield in a looong time. Can't wait to see him play again. A lot to learn still, but already a difference maker.
There were plays in the second half out in the flat where in the span of a few pico-seconds, I went from thinking we were in trouble to realizing that it was #5 closing on the ball to realizing it was about to be a tackle and that I was elated. All while Peppers was still 3 yards away from making said tackle in the open field.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||repetition for memory||
Now you won't so easily forget that name when you hear it later in the context of accolades.
Peppers and others may have let him loose at times, but that kid made some plays on his own.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Dude...||
You're definitely the negative end of the opinion curve for Peppers. Not sure why. Yes, he could have been in better position on some plays... that puts him in same category as most of the team.
He has already made more spectacular and impactful plays in this one game than a couple current upper classmen multi-year 'solid' starters have in their entire careers.
Perhaps your expectations are a bit out of position?
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Fantastic plays||
He made fantastic plays in the flat, out on bubble screens, behind the line of scrimmage. I don't care how mediocre you think his pass coverage may have been downfield... Peppers was hands-down the best athlete making the most fantastic plays of the game. If you can't see that, it's time for some new glasses!
I haven't seen open field tackles like that in a long time. Even when he didn't get the tackle, he's the reason several plays were busted. His ability to beat blocks in run support or on bubble screens was uncanny.
You do realize he was wearing #5, yes?
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Agreed regarding legends jerseys||
Those didn't work out too well.
Obviously, retiring numbers leads to a point where you just have to stop, or run out of numbers. Players would have to start wearing letters, or perhaps decimal places would be allowed... 98.1, 98.2
Legends jerseys are the opposite of retiring jerseys... I'm amazed Brian liked these because if there's one thing that epitomized teh Brandon era and 'Branding' Michigan, it's the Legends jerseys. Piped in nostalgia.
I'm glad to see that's gone... let the kids earn laurels for their own numbers. If only Devin could have stayed Seven, maybe he would have somehow been immune to the year by year decline.
Sure, put banners up, hang jerseys or just know that a few numbers are special and try to give them to the guys that
Good bye legends jerseys! Woooo!
Oh yeah.. and I like helmet stickers given I really arrived into my Michigan fandom in the 80's, but smaller might be better.

If this is a problem now, why wasn't it a problem when he was ready to sign NLI with UCLA?
Seems petty to bring that up now. Just sayin'
|2 years 17 weeks ago||No||
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Exactly||
|2 years 17 weeks ago||You're an ass||
Or if you're not always an ass, you had a good day off ass practice.
Maybe a player or two asked for these #'s. Like Funchess for #1. You cannot blame them for wanting that. But please go take your machismo ignorance to another fanbase. These are kids trying to play football and in most cases with the legacy jerseys, being assigned numbers they didn't ask for.
Who the hell are you to question any college kids worthiness for their jersey?
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Good play or bad play||
To me, it's never had anything to do with how good or bad the players are playing. It's flat-out unfair to them (IMO). Let them make their own legacy with their own number!
Again... never liked the legends jersey idea from the get go. Even if we were undefeated with 3 All Americans and a heisman candidate on either side of the ball, this was a crappy idea.

1 big paragraph was not the intent. Can't seem to edit it either from phone.
