I understand your point but if he ends in NY for heisman finals and Michigan wins the title (or even makes the playoff), he would have a huge part in that and I would feel more than satisfied with his career achievements. Such is the nature of a super-talented guy that was good enough to play as a freshman but was injured. His sophomore year was basically his first year and was very solid (comparable to Woodson's freshman year IMO). While I don't expect Peppers to have a heisman year like Woodson, I am expecting an All-B1G year and possibly All American.
|4 days 4 hours ago||That IU reason to hate every||
That IU "reason to hate every B1G school" piece is quite amusing. From the MSU section:
"Hearing every Spartans’ game described as "old-school smash-mouth football" as if it’s a compliment erodes my soul a little bit more each time it happens. You know what else is old-school? Using candles as your primary lighting source, rarely surviving childbirth, and contracting pertussis if you somehow manage to. "
|5 days 4 hours ago||Sure but did we really think||
Sure but did we really think we were going to get much better than Meh from Newsome? Yes it's a weakness but one we have known about. Virtually every team has some weaknesses. A the end of the year, if we can say that BB had a servicable year at LT and the QBs performed as expected, I think Michigan has a very good year.
|5 days 4 hours ago||True, and I agree with your||
True, and I agree with your point, but Mason Cole was a lower ranked recruit and also bound for the interior and did okay at LT. Again, it's likely to be a weakness but not necessarily so. And I think that is Ace's point here.

From the post: we are looking at the strongest and weakest units..."
The identified weakness is, in the writer's opinion, the biggest or most noteworthy weakness, not necessarily the only one. The writer believes (based on Harbaugh) Michigan will have servicable QB play but LT could be a real weak point. For MSU, strong QB play reall kept MSU afloat last year whereas that unit could really take a step back this year.
I don't see your point. It's not like Rutgers has only one weakness either.

This is like Chad Le Clos talking smack about Michael Phelps before the Olympics. Sure, Le Clos beat him previously but everyone knows its not a wise thing to do.
|1 week 9 hours ago||That might be overstating it||
That might be overstating it a bit unless you have personal knowledge. Maybe she just wants him to play close to home so she can see his games. Not a crazy idea.
He looks like a great player so maybe gives Michigan another look.
|1 week 6 days ago||Realistically, Newsome is||
Realistically, Newsome is going to start at LT at least at the beginning. If he falters, Bredenson may be given a shot. I feel confident they are at least going to give Newsome a chance to lock that position down.
|1 week 6 days ago||Alabama. 2 losses and many||
Alabama. 2 losses and many would still argue they are the best team so they get it. World explodes. Film at 11.
|1 week 6 days ago||I think the comment is that||
I think the comment is that UM may not have an elite back and I think that's a fair point. Smith is solid but not elite (from what we have seen so far), the Drake is good but not elite, and Ty maybe has the ability but certainly has not shown it. So I think that's a fair point. RB situation is solid but there may not be any difference makers. That may hold back the offense a bit.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||Possibly but consider that we||
Possibly but consider that we need bodies there and with 3-4 new starters, they might play 1-2 true freshmen (probably as backups) next year. If so, then those guys almost count as 2016 recruits (4-5 total then) with the remaining 5-6 being redshirted and on track for 2017. So it might not be as much of an imbalance as it first appears.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||I think there has been at||
I think there has been at least some chatter about Runyan possibly at C behind Cole (not this year but in the future).
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Well there also is the||
Well there also is the mobility factor. Rudock was just mobile enough to scramble effectively last year. I think many fans want to see at least that level of mobility. Speight not so much.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Agree. That blue one is like||
Agree. That blue one is like the worst-case scenario - just terrible. Maize one is okay I guess but as someone said, really uninspired. I still have a script Maize one and I certainly am not buying one of these to replace it. Ugh. I cannot believe the team has to wear these.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Thank you. I was||
Thank you. I was experiencing difficult in resisting the urge to raise that point.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I sort of pictured in my head||
I sort of pictured in my head the other reporter walking away and mumbling "what the hell are these guys talking about" because it wasn't the usual line of boring questions. Well done.

Wear shoulder pads as an undergarment?
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||I've known the white pants||
I've known the white pants but I much prefer the maize pants. Sure, the white look okay but Michigan was one of the few with Maize pants, plus I just like the contrast better. Overall, I like the new jerseys but it would be close to perfect if the road unis had maize pants (with whites as an alternative).
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Whatever the labeled||
Whatever the labeled position, while at Michigan, I would argue that Woodley played much more lineman than linebacker.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Umm, I would like a $1||
Umm, I would like a $1 million price tag, not 1.8 please. It's a vast overpayment IMO and yet another sign that Holland is loyal to a fault. Happy for Luke, good for him but IMO a bad deal for the Wings. Hoping I am wrong.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||So, a more effective defense||
So, a more effective defense than Alabama? OK, I will take that.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, and Saban should also||
Yes, and Saban should also make the point about how people and schools that violate these rules should be punished severly. Oh wait, he might not want to make that point.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Or maybe they are actually||
Or maybe they are actually waiting to see what the findings are and how this all shakes out. If the whole staff is fired (looks likely), the camp probably goes away anyway and you don't have to publicly kick people that are already losing their jobs (rightfully so if what is alleged is true).
The fact that you want an instant reaction and can't understand why someone would wait is a bit troubling. Maybe a reaction is coming in a day or two.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Actually I think the recent||
Actually I think the recent discussion is that Wilson was "semi-pushed out" because (a) he was playing baseball, and (b) they wanted to give the starting job to Glennon.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Pac-12 rep mistakenly||
Pac-12 rep mistakenly nominates UCLA, despite a 6-6 record, to represent the conference. Nomination results in giggles from playoff committee. Therefore, Pac-12 excluded.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe not if a 1 loss Iowa||
Maybe not if a 1 loss Iowa team wins the championship.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||ACC has Clemson and FSU among||
ACC has Clemson and FSU among others. Good chance that one of them gets in. In fact, with Michigan having a tough road schedule and OSU and MSU possibly taking a step back, the B1G could be on the outside looking in. Pac12 may be questionable also.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||As an overall situation, I||
As an overall situation, I agree. As for the gif....meh.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Totally agree. Stops for||
Totally agree. Stops for autograph, runs toward tunnel and then, oh what the heck, give the dude on the overhang a high ten. Awesome.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Great perspective and so||
Great perspective and so sorry for your loss. A loved one can be sick and their passing even expected and yet you can never truly prepare for the loss you will feel. Just realize there may be times when you need support and if you feel the slightest inclination of that, please reach out to others. It will be a great help to you and you will be surprised at the caring and understanding of those around us when we are dealing with something like this.
