Yeah its so early a lot can happen. I remember this time last year I thought for sure DG was OSU bound by his comments that they were his favorite team growing up.

Looks like a football player. His lanky frame leads me to believe he is still growing into his body a little bit. Good athlete+upside? Welcome aboard brotha!
|5 years 26 weeks ago||It hasnt taken too long for||
It hasnt taken too long for Kiffin's recruiting tactics to start popping up at USC. This is a match made in heaven. A school that is possibly on the verge of getting the hammer dropped on them, and without a doubt the most frequent violater of recruiting rules. All this just adds to Brian's point about the whole situation. If the NC DOUBLE ASSHOLES dont hit USC hard then there really arent any rules.

I dont know the middle name of this girl but for comedy purposes, Texas has a volleyball player by the name of Destiny Hooker. Some parents must just have a sick sense of humor.

If thats the case we can drop Adidas and swtich back to Nike.

Dude we know its been a tough year. No need to commit MGOBLogicide.

Last Anchorman Reference- "You really know how to cut to the core of me Baxter"

Nike, I miss you.

I think if RR gets 4 years he can get this thing up and running. But if he only gets next year to turn it around, then I think hes gone after next year. Think about it, this defense isn't gonna get that much better, plus all our tough games like ND, PSU, and OSU are all on the road next year. Where under RR we have only won 1 road game. If that is the case and RR gets canned after next year, Harbaugh makes the most sense. Despite what he has said about Michigan in the past he is a good coach. I would hope Miles isn't in the conversation.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||It kinda sucks because he||
It kinda sucks because he seems like a great guy, but the media forces you to hate him. They kiss his ass so much that I root for him to fail. Tom Brenneman last year in the NC game was the worst. "If you have the opportunity to spend 20 minutes with Tim Tebow, you're life is better for it"

CBS just said he had face lacerations.

Whats the record now for liveblogs?
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Texas actually supports||
Texas actually supports several top notch programs. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State pull a lot from Texas. As does TCU and Texas Tech.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||I wish Michigan had yell||
I wish Michigan had yell practice like A&M. UM fans need a lesson on getting loud.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Lets see a coach in Ohio||
Lets see a coach in Ohio bashes Notre Dame, Michigan, West Virginia, and Pittsburgh. What are the similarities with those schools? I smell a Buckeye fan. People in Ohio already have a rivalry with the states of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Then throw in the 2 other most recognizable programs in the Midwest. Look not much has gone right since RR was hired, but even tomhagan would have to admit that he can recruit. Two terrible seasons and he is still bringing in talent. And all we have read from recruits is how much they love the staff/family atmosphere. I'll base my opinion on RR's recruiting by the results, not by some anonymous high school coach with no credibility.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Living in Dallas and getting||
Living in Dallas and getting to see him in high school, i've always pulled for him, even though i'm indifferent on the Lions. Steve Sabol said that was the best audio that NFL films has ever gotten, and theyve been in business since the mid 60's. Its hard to argue that. That was good stuff.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||In high school he plays||
In high school he plays OLB/Weakside end. I would assume he doesnt have too much experience covering people. That wouldnt be good. We need LBs who can play anyways and he seems like a good athlete. Also I would assume thats a fake fake 40 time. A guy that size who runs a 4.3? He would have to be a 5 star.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||The tomhagan meltdown reminds||
The tomhagan meltdown reminds me of Randy Quaid in Major League 2.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||tomhagan needs to go to mlive||
tomhagan needs to go to mlive for a while. His schtick would fit right in over there.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||The writing is on the||
The writing is on the wall....Even NBC's announcers who are the biggest homers in all of sport were talking like they knew it was Weis's last game. They were even saying things about needing to start talking to other coaches.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Our biggest issue||
Our biggest issue is can our D stop Wisconsin at all. Tate can atleast put points on the board from time to time. Our chances of winning just got a little worse in my opinion. I hope he gets in there very soon.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||I said the recruiting hasnt||
I said the recruiting hasnt worked out YET. And i'm not saying I expect championship football. Is it too much to EXPECT the defense to hold their own?
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Thats just the way it is. I||
Thats just the way it is. I agree the defense is terrible. But RR shouldnt be exempt from criticism. He is the Chief Executive so to say of this football team. His recruiting, defensive philosophy, and the guys he has hired havent worked out yet. We all know he doesnt have much to work with on the defensive side, but you cant get rid of all the players, so the coach always takes the fall. Thats just how it goes.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Ya and also what coach would||
Ya and also what coach would want to come here knowing not only do you have to win, but you have to be a Michigan man or the Freep and the old guard here at Michigan will try to bury you. I'm alot less sold on RR right now and how can you not be? But I agree our best bet is to ride this thing out. The offense has came around this year. But RR needs to fix the D or that could be his downfall.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||I would also add defensive||
I would also add defensive philosophy and recruiting. Using smaller defenders might work eventually but the recruiting strategy to load up on offensive players and the lack of talent on defense points to recruiting and developing.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Yeah sadly i've lost all||
Yeah sadly i've lost all faith. We are in last place in the Big Ten and thats no fluke. We are the worst team without a doubt. I have been a RR supporter up until last weeks Illinois game. I still think he should get another year but like I said I have lost all faith. I dont see this going anywhere really. Next year we have all our tough games on the road where under RR we have won 1 road game in 2 years. 1-5 in the Big Ten and basically a 5 game losing streak with a possible 7 game losing streak to end the season? Sorry RR you just cant defend that. It seems like everyweek some milestone is acheieved by another team. Today Purdue wins at the Big House for the first time since the 60's.
|5 years 38 weeks ago||I saw a ridiculous stat in||
I saw a ridiculous stat in the Dallas Morning News that Tony Drake is averaging 10. something yards a carry. That was 2 weeks ago but i'm sure it hasnt changed much.
|5 years 38 weeks ago||A&M got beat by KState||
A&M got beat by KState something like 62-14. That was Leach's issue. Tech beat KState by 50, then KState beat A&M by 50, so he thought his players didnt take A&M seriously.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Does anyone else know why he||
Does anyone else know why he isnt playing much defense in high school? I read something recently that said he has been playing tight end and hardly any defense.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||The worst one by far is the||
The worst one by far is the Gwen Stefani abortion of a song that goes, "woohoo yeehoo". They play that a few times then stop it expecting the crowd to follow through with a gay ass, "woohoo yeehoo"
