Brandon, wayyyy off topic here(didnt want to create a new thread), but is there any chance at all, any names floating around that the coaches are looking to pull in any more players for this class. Last minute snake oil? I know Mcdowell is still a shot, but any others?
btw Lewerke looks good

calling Mr. Hand.
Wasn't coach stability pretty high on his list during this college announcement?

Should we seriously look at replacing these coaches.
mallory-his defenses at illinois before this were terrible and we really cant contain a decent passing attack
funk- SERIOUSLY? What has this guy done? I really felt our oline has gotten worse since brady took over. We have had recruits pour into here. To have this...less than mediocrity on the field is hard to watch. This is the first head I would axe. Spend some money and bring in someone who can run a michigan o-line.
Borges- I dont mind his play calling as much as some. Its the game preperation like some people have mentioned. Being Devins quarterback coach and not coaching fundamentals like ball security, when to run, when not to run. o yea...STOP RUNNING 20 YARDS IN THE BACKFIELD TRYING TO SCRAMLE AWAY FROM PRESSURE.
This season is going to be rough, because if we truly have the best players on the field, then it would be alot worse if we have Bryant in there or Green for that matter.
Btw for all of you that want Green to play...You can tell he isnt in game shape, fitz is the clear #1 back by far, and if it was up to me. Id give fitz a break occasionally with rawls or hayes.
just angry after watching that game.....that is all

So your saying theres a chance?
|2 years 43 weeks ago||disagree||
I disagree with brooktrail. We dont need any DE's or CB's at this time. Biggest position of need would have to be WR first and formost. Then I personally would take a DT. This coaching staff prides itself on its D-Line however the D-Line recruiting under Rich was terrible, and now we kind of need to overload at the position. No one knows what will happen if Pipkins or Washington gets hurt next year, who will replace them. Its a very unproven position for us.
Ive been looking at the prospect board on scout and one person did catch my eye.
Darius Latham out of Indiana. 6-5 285. Looks pretty good. Anyone know why he went with IU over all his other offers?
