You don't need to be an MD. You do need to be much more physically developed than 95% of even elite high school linemen. Having said that, I agree with your last sentence.

He is a very good recruiter. But without player development........(sigh).

Thank you for saving me typing. Saban is an asshat as a human being. You guys don't see the half of it. He puts on the charm for ESPN. His obnoxious treatment of the local media is legendary. My Bama fan friends agree. I'm a Patriots fan because of Brady, BB is an asshole even though he coaches my team. Hoke's problem is not media relations, it is that he doesn't develop the considerable talent he recruits. I love the guy. But he has to win more.

Much of what you said made sense, but the "piggy" comment. Just no. In the third quarter, my Auburn fan wife kindly suggested maybe I should become an Auburn fan. She got offended when I suggested there would be ice in the infernal regions before that happened.

Sadly, that may be the most spot on comment I have read since the second quarter.
|1 week 2 days ago||Are you serious? I am as||
Are you serious? I am as pissed as anyone else. But saying those who support keeping the fifth year quarterback who was responsible for much of what little success we had last year are doing so because of his race.......I am stunned.

This is the same network that employs Skip Bayless, Steven A. Smith and Paul Finebaum. Having anything useful to say is not on their list of hiring requirements.

Not literally. But it is a fine metaphor.
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||Saw them all. And all three||
Saw them all. And all three were great. Note age bias: Carter's first two years were my last two years as a student. As great as all three were, IMO Carter was the best. We understandably tend to look at numbers when evaluating these things. But Carter came in when Bo was at the top of his game....and that meant run game and defense. Carter was so good that our beloved stubborn Bo changed his approach to take advantage of Carter. And without that, I am convinced that Michigan would not had it's reign as Quarterback U that lasted for twenty years. And I believe if you look at what "experts" who are as old as I am have to say, Carter is not just at the top of the list of greatest M receiver of all time, but high in the discussion of greatest in the history of college football.

Really thought Mowins was fine. (I did wonder where when the building that was attached to West Quad when I lived there 35 years ago was renamed Union Hall. Thanks for explaining the Brooklyn campus angle.) However, Galloway's announcing career needs to be taken out back and killed with an axe. He was atrocious.

Being happy that a kid is injured is not okay.

They're storming the field! We won't be able to kick the extra point!!!!!!! WHO GIVES A DAMN!!!!!!!!
Was at the stadium (junior year) so I missed the call. We fell out of the chair laughing hearing it on Michigan Replay the next morning. Even Bo was laughing at that one.

She is like Pam Ward in that she is female.

They pay Lou Holtz, Mark May and Paul Finebaum. Their hiring decisions are not universally admirable.

He certainly picked something up from Saban and 98% of other coaches in history.
|3 weeks 19 hours ago||If Michigan won 11 games last||
If Michigan won 11 games last year, Hoke probably would have captains named before this season. It's not a huge deal, but I don't get it. Naming a captain after the season is just giving you something to put on your resume instead of putting you in a position where you are expected to lead.

You just described my feelings about Ohio Stadium. By a factor of many, the most obnoxious bunch of assholes at any venue I have ever visited.

I guess you're not allowed to consider the vile mob that inhabits Ohio Stadium?

If I remember right, AC took a punt to the house his first game as a freshman.

Do you feel like that is partly a function of his position in college that would be reduced when his carries are more "structured" in the role of an NFL running back?

I assume there will be a red ball attached to the face mask and the cleats will be large and floppy.

Wow you just bummed me out. I was going to ask DB how much he would charge for me to endow the Bill in Birmingham Big House Latrine Cleaner position. But you dropped the Kim Jong bomb and ruined my enthusiasm.

What a thought. The two best Michigan players in my forty years of fandom, IMO.

He may be overlord. But I don't accept his will. Zoltan he is not.

Without his NFL career, he would still have the Orange Bowl against Bama. My favorite game not including the 1997 team since I graduated in 1981. I loved the guy then and love him now.
