|8 weeks 20 hours ago||some unsolicited criticism||
I expected to read a review yet I see mostly plot summary with a sprinkling of critical analysis at the end. You say in the beginning of your piece that the book deserves all the acclaim it has received, yet you fail to support this statement in your review. You also rate the book 8/10, yet your review doesn't offer an explanation as to why. You do mention that it moves slowly at the beginning and you include the brief analysis at the end. I expect more information of this nature and less explicit plot summary in a review.
I also read in the comments that you wrote this all on your phone because you "couldn't get to a computer." I don't understand the rush you were in to post a review of an old book on a Michigan sports blog. I know you meant to have proper formatting, but since you couldn't wait to get to a computer, you failed. If the post isn't ready, why post it? Again, I don't understand the rush. Take pride in your work.
Finally, you included spoilers. As I've yet to read the book (been meaning to for ages)... yeah. Avoid doing that, or put a warning in your title.
peace and go blue

It's interesting to see that they aren't letting Reese enroll early, specifically citing 'big fish' that they are still after. Are we assuming that some of these are LB recruits?

You might be right, but everyone agrees that Shane has the physical abilities needed to be a great player, and we also agree that Harbaugh is a QB guru. An extra year with Harbaugh would certainly help his development.

On the play where Rudock scrambled after the token play fake it looked to me like there was some confusion. I think Rudock expected a back to to be there to fake the handoff, and when there wasn't, he immediately abandoned the play and decided to get whatever yards he could on the ground.

|34 weeks 1 day ago||Yes. I only remember one||
Yes. I only remember one play where he did a nice spin move but the QB got the pass off right before he got there. I was hoping he laid a good hit on him but the replay showed that he pulled up, probably trying to avoid a penalty. I thought he could have finished the hit without getting a call but I could be wrong. Even if he had gotten a call it might have been worth it... Wilson was too comfortable and maybe he would have gotten a little antsy in the pocket after taking a good lick. ohhhhh well.

I do know this - the Kyle Flood who was speaking at Big Ten Media Day? That'll be the same Kyle Flood if you run into him on campus, shaking down professors...

Do we know what the medical staff said to Hoke during the game with regard to a head injury or is that the information that they never released in detail?

People have said that Jehu is the best speaker on the team but I would put Ty right up there with him. Very nice interview here. He comes across as genuine, responds appropriately to each question and his responses are well thought out and put together. Happy to have him representing the university and looking forward to seeing him on the field.

Wow. To hell with ND and all that but they have a classic uni like ours and this is an abomination.

Thanks for posting this!
Just got setup on the network, though the stream is kind of choppy and slow, not much different from when I stream games on firstrowsports. Any idea why that is the case?
Also, it appears that btn allows international streaming (if you subscribe to cable) and I don't have any issues with their streams, so I'l be using that option for games on btn. Otherwise I'll probably stick to firstrowsports or go to an american bar/chain if I've got money to blow.

miller was always the worst passer of the three (?) plus given that his arm is still not back to 100% I'd rather we play him.
as a side note, i think it's worth noting that for a superstar level player, b miller has always come across as low key, humble, and dare i say classy. i dont remember him doing anything (other than playing for osu and being really good) to make me dislike him. his injuries have been unfortunate and i hope that he is able to overcome them, have success in the league and avoid any lifelong issues. and of course lose to M in his last B1G game.

the article also mentions some shady behavior regarding cell phones. if these allegations are true, it's hard to imagine him avoiding jail time, no? at any rate, if they are true, he should be booted from the team.
however, the article also mentions that he is eager to clear his name and get back on the field. either this kid was erroneously charged or he is a straight up sociopath. here's to hoping the system works.

I'll grant you that our transfers aren't as impressive as their guys, but you can't compare recruits to guys who have been in a system for years. After a cursory check at rivals, it appears Cardale Jones was a 3 star recruit. All of Harbaugh's guys were/are at least that highly rated as recruits.
Also, quarterbacks don't compete against each other, so it's pointless comparing ours to theirs. It's a team game and it starts with great coaching, which we now have.
Feeling better now?
