Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

my fault... saw the 0.00 win % and added them, even though we're 0-0 against them, obviously

If we go the Dave Brandon route of scheduling nonconference opponents to right past wrongs, then we should consider the following, as they're the only teams Michigan has a losing record against *... Army, Cornell, Kansas St, Mississippi St, N Carolina, S Carolina, USC, Tennessee, Texas, Toledo (fml), UNLV (fml2), Wesleyan
Of those, Miss St, USC, Tennessee, and Texas would actually be fun.
*also Rutgers, but they're B1G

It's funny to hear people neg Adidas so much. I remember being at Michigan when they changed to Adidas and everyone was so excited... grass is always greener, I suppose.

The problem with this comparison, as well as the OP'S comparison with Denard, is that you can't compare acceleration with velocity. Denard was known for his acceleration from 0 to top speed, but a runner with higher top speed and lower acceleration could match his 100 m time. This is why the 40 is used in football. It better captures acceleration, which is more coveted than top end speed. Which does Enis possess? We still don't know...

Saw him first at the State Theater in Kzoo, then many many times thereafter. One of my favorites was at the Hill in A2 while in school. So many great memories... RIP, blues boy.

Stickers are for kindergarteners and our helmets are too iconic to mess with, in my opinion. Why not set a trend with small jersey patches or something... maybe on the shoulders?

I had the same reaction... don't know why the OP felt it necessary to "kick a Hoke when he's down"... instead, I would have appreciated a warning that the link was to the world's longest article ever written!

It's mildly discouraging, but 100k attendance is 100k attendance... that's why it's called an attendance streak, not a sale streak. I'm pretty sure every team gives away free tickets to even the biggest games. Still, it'll be nice to acutally fill the stadium this year and- hopefully- field a more competitive team.

Go, Coach! Good boy, Coach! Dammit, why didn't we go for it on 4th down, Coach?!?

Also, to be fair, a medical hardship would give him his 4 year scholarship- he just can't play football. Still sucks, but his scholarship is in tact.

This game reminded me why I could never really get into bball... a shame that the refs can miss that much

I've always LOVED our home unis, but never liked the white jerseys for away games... just too pedestrian. I'd love to see an all maize uniform (like MBB) for away games (thought the all blue unis for the penn st game were cool last year).

Whoops! I've spent way too much time on craigslist these past few weeks looking for a couch- I guess my fingers were on autopilot :-).
|9 weeks 4 days ago||More likely, we'll see||
More likely, we'll see football evolve towards rugby before we see it eclipsed by another sport altogether. There's too much fanaticism for it to just drop off. Changing the sport and coaching it correctly can have a significant impact on safety (i.e. "heads up" tackling). That being said, sports are dangerous. Many studies show that cheerleading has a higher capacity for catastrophic injury than football- hell, even runners experience higher risks of hip/joint displacement over time.
You know what's even more dangerous, though... not exercising. Rather than focusing on removing a sport, we should be encouraging our kids to get the hell of their couch and do SOMETHING active...

No doubt! Based one someone's summary, they may actually be getting close to twice as much field time as last year (2 hrs in a team classroom and 2 hrs on the field VS 4 hrs on the field)... while probably an exageration, it's still likely a huge difference! As a couch, I would definitely say that most athletes are kinesthetic learners so field time is key...

Urban never had a heart issue- he went to the ER with chest pains that ended up being esophageal spasms due to acid reflux. Although, given that, he still should not being eating pizza as it's known to cause heartburn and reflux in those such aflicted.

Not if the mortgage is from an original purchase price of $500-600k. The current market value of the house doesn't neccasarily have any bearing on your monthly mortgage payment.
