Yeah, cause that Will Likely guy is terrible, right? Being shorter makes it more of a challenge but Richardson would be fine if he had the playmaking skills that Likely does.

Don't count out Cleary. That guy has more roster-lives than a cat.

That was the game at Oregon with Lloyd complaining about the crown of the field afterward.

Ondre Pipkins was pretty darn close. I believe he was 5 star on some sites.

Or booing when our former AD's image was shown on the scoreboard.

I was copying this quote to post the same thing. +1 to you.

But yet we outgained them? I get the field position argument but that would result in more Utah yardage, no?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||You might have a valid point||
You might have a valid point if you have first hand knowledge of this. Otherwise, this post really looks like sour grapes. I know many have said that Winston is overrated but everyone agrees he is a top 100 player and was a priority for Coach B. He is a very good player and would have fit well on UM's roster had he decided earlier.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Well the Isaac "love" comes||
Well the Isaac "love" comes because "very average in speed" looks really good right now. Love Smith's effort and toughness but we really need someone that can get to the holes with some level of speed right now. Average would be awesome right now. Let's hope that Isaac's protection mistakes can be corrected.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||And several times the crew||
And several times the crew said "senior" about a Michigan player only to have the graphic show a junior or sophomore. It was like they thought our whole starting lineup (other than Peppers) were seniors.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||True, but if our defense gave||
True, but if our defense gave up 3 potential TDs on long passes (we went 0-3 vs Utah), I wouldn't feel as good about our D either. Bottom line, Utah capitalized on more of their chances and effectively went +3 in the TO dept. Michigan isn't good enough to overcome that on the road against a pretty decent team.

Chesson certainly looked like a game breaker last night if the passess were on target.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Totally agree here. I am||
Totally agree here. I am actually more impressed with the receivers that I expected. Of all the backs, I thought Isaac looked marginally more impressive than Smith (ran hard but really lacks speed). Green was mostly a non-factor.
And in some strange way, I was actually somewhat impressed with Rudock. Yes, 3 INTs were bad and overthrows was frustrating but he also showed some good poise in the pocket and most throws were on target. I think it will take several games to get a cohesive unit, but it may be an okay offensive unit by the start of the big 10 season. The big question is whether we can get the running game going. Other than losing, that was really my only big disappointment from this game.

Yes, get that man a legends patch!

This is gold. Just goes to show how wrong these supposed "sources" can be (if not outright made up).
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I get your point but it very||
I get your point but it very well may have to do with Harbaugh as Jim worked with Peters earlier in the summer and then Peters went out and tore up the camps. Maybe a few of Jim's pointers helped him.

I didn't see anything harmful there either. People get touchy I guess.
|6 weeks 8 hours ago||I think we will find during||
I think we will find during the season they will be fairly frank as to what happened the previous week but say almost nothing about what is going to happen going forward.

Hatch did not lose his scholarship. He got a medical scholarship which just prevents him from playing in a game.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I think it's understandable||
I think it's understandable for a coach. Alot is going on, these are new rules and if you just asked and were told no, you have other things to focus upon. Unless you are really confident of the rule.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I am a bit suspect of that.||
I am a bit suspect of that. Why could they not just do that in practice? Might it not be that they were just trying to get Terry some snaps once in a while with all the 1st teamers? I curious how you know the exact "sole reason" for substitutions and plays. Is your wife an MSU graduate assistant working directly with the coach?
|7 weeks 11 hours ago||Agreed.||
|7 weeks 12 hours ago||Because NHL sweaters||
Because NHL sweaters generally have a following and lots of fans purchase those sweaters. You would kill a good portion of the emotional attachment to the team if you litter the jerseys with ads. This would be a very DB thing to do.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||True but I don't think we||
True but I don't think we would ever nominate them for legends patches. C'mon man.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Yes, he was good but not||
Yes, he was good but not "legendary." And kind of difficult when your "legend" transfers to another school.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Got it, thanks. That sounds||
Got it, thanks. That sounds (easy for me to say) not too severe in the overall scheme of things (better than an ACL or MCL) and does not seem like it would prevent him from returning to 100%, is that accurate?
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Isn't it confirmed it was the||
Isn't it confirmed it was the ankle? Which should be a quicker and less dangerous, at least a bit.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Actually I agree with most of||
Actually I agree with most of your analysis. Well done. The area I disagree is where you suggest it would be better for UM if the game was earlier. Yes, PSU's line may gel later but I feel that with a new QB into the system, and new coordinators (with new pieces to try), a new OL coach and a better head coach, I feel UM will make more improvement from the start of the year to the end. So yes, PSU will get better but UM will get "more better" as the season progresses.

I agree but I also think some of that was scheme/play design and some was lack of a ground game to open up the passing game. I am HOPING both areas are improved this year. If so, the WR position may not be outstanding but could certainly be solid.
