when I was at UM, one of my favorite game signs was when we played Navy and a common sign was "Beat off the Semen."
|2 weeks 5 days ago||keep on scoring||
So 13 years ago my son was playing on a travel hockey team comprised of twelve year olds Was coached by a terrific coach and gentleman and if we were ahead by a comfortable margin he would always slow play and back off and would tell his players to pass but not shoot.
The kids were playing a much bigger, goon type team and we were ahead 8-1 and the parents were surprised that our boys were still aggressively shooting the puck. We won 12-1 and when I asked my son why the guys kept on shooting and scoring as this was contradictory to the coach's MO, my kid said the opposing team was constantly talking smack that our coach would walk up and down the bench with only one directive, "Keep on scoring. We are going to teach them a lesson."
|4 weeks 6 days ago||practice reps||
So would it be correct to assume that a QB who is running the scout team gets way more reps than the second string QB who most likely will redshirt?
Also, would by definition assume that the scout team QB is not getting many opportunities to play call the Michigan offense.
Any thoughts? Thanks.

My two favorite teams are University of Michigan and whomever plays Notre Dame that week.

I would also like to contribute. Clearly very worthy and appreciate you dedication.

Agree that he a great coach of football and life. And, by the way, he is excellent with game time management.
Not in any way second guessing the last play call; however, coaching staff, particularly Harbaugh and Baxter should look at the last play as an opportunity. Just as done in the NBA several years ago when they tested how long a person could field an inbounds pass and get off a shot, Michigan should practice the last play of the game utilizing different play calls but always telling the defensive unit what they will be running. In other words, call a rollout and a downfield high pass to nobody and see how many seconds tick off. The play will be defended maximally as the defense will be alerted ahead of time. Doing this for various play calls will give coaches a pretty close estimate as to how much time will tick off under each scenario and what play to call in the future under similar circumstamces, albeit with different amounts of time on the clock. Certainly the players could always fumble, etc but this will give them guidance for future playcalling under a similar circumstance for end of half or end of game calls even if they never need it going forward.

Clearly injuries happen. Just as clearly, JH is a disciple of Bo's.
I was at UM 1968 - 1972. Bo had a reputation of having very active, aggressive practices. When Rob Lytle played, there was actually an article in the Wall Street Journal about his draft status falling solely on the basis of how intense the practices were. One comment I remember is that when you play running back for UM, you took just as many hits in practice for a year as you did playing for that year. There was concern that Lytle had already been beat up more than the average running back given the intensity of practice.
Not saying this is a bad thing and freak injuries occur, but would not be surprised to see some wear and tear beyond that experienced in recent years.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||practice||
Certainly have not read all the posts, but we must keep in mind that it is not only his ability and safety while playing in a game, but also his safety during practice. Many injuries and reinjuries occur during practice. My grey/white hair will attest to an article in the Wall Street Journal years ago pertaining to Bo and UM running backs.
The NFL GMs were hesitant to draft Michigan running backs high as they calculated at the time that UM backs were not as durable due to their tough and gruesome practices were akin to adding an additional year of actual playing. I beleive Rob Lytle was one back mentioned.
As a physician, Harbaugh is making the correct, albeit difficult and perhaps unpopular decision by offering him a medical. The risk of another injury even during practice is too high and will have lifelong ramifications. My guess is that over time Pipkins will come to understand and may even thank JH.
He seems like a well spoken, intelligent fellow and I would strongly encourage to accept the offer and obtain a Michigan degree.

I have no idea what the package will cost, but do know that the game tickets sold by UM will be $95 apiece. Perhaps this will help some who are looking at Stub Hub.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||one time||
The Detroit News story mentioned that he told Yahoo Sports that he used it one time in March. I guess if you want to split hairs, perhaps he used it every day in February and that could account for a positive test; however, if this was his one and only time of use, then he would not test positive two weeks later using typical cut-off levels.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Will not be popular||
Sorry if this has already been mentioned and not to take anything away from the issue as to whether or not this was a random test and whether the NCAA policy is reasonable, but one thing that bugs me is when an athlete or celebrity appears to "come clean" as McGary appears to have done, yet they truly have not been forthright and honest.
What I am referring to is that there are reports that he was tested two weeks after allegedly using MJ one time. I am not certain as to the type of assay, but a typical urine test with a typical cut-off level will not be called a positive test after one night of marijuana use two weeks earlier that was reportedly his only use ever.
McGary's story does not fit scientific facts.

No rumor, just one of the forces behind the offensive slowdown and being called out by the University of California AD, then "apologizing" but not really apologizing.

any chance Froholdt will look at us again or does this sort of news not travel to Europe?

This GIF is quite appropriate as many ACL tears occur with improper landing techniques while one jumps up, etc. This is particularly seen in women's basketball and volleyball.

Given all of this, he would be a disruptive element in the locker room and field. Feel bad for the kid, but if I were Brady, would not accept a signed LOI to Michigan.

Agree. It's not only his buddies, but it sounds as if Malik is making poor decisions. These choices can be made in Florida as well as Columbus or AA, etc. Ultimately he is resonsible for his own behavior and he will find people in every setting willing to lure him.
Sounds like something big time occurred in EL.
Wishing the entire McDowell family the best but also appears that Malik may have some challenges ahead of himself regardless of where he ends up.

You are knocking a true Michigan Man (or in this case true Michigan Men) when you knock Big Bang. Not only did JEJ frequent the campus and sit in during one of my classes back in the day, but the Big Bang primary director is Mark Cendrowski, a Michigan alum.
