|2 days 6 hours ago||I feel like I just||
watched Kramer dominate karate against children. That's also some terrible referee work, where the hell was the technical for all those fans running on the court acting like this was an Andone tape.
I don't suppose many people have heard of Detroit Northwestern Fr. Steve Pearson. You will soon enough.
|3 days 7 hours ago||On the whole||
Michigan suffers very few decommitments that aren't covered by someone close to the same talent level. At least it seems like we have fewer than some other top programs
I get more upset by the near misses than by guys who committ and decommit.

what this is about and I'm fine with that
|1 week 3 days ago||Never a good fit||
and Dykes looked miserable coaching there.

|1 week 5 days ago||Are people in Minnesota||
excited about getting MAC flips? Because I wouldn't be.
|1 week 5 days ago||if that happens||
it will be because Minnesota purchased to the trademark from WMU between now and whenever they use.
No apology warranted, you're just wrong here.

has discovered the bag man concept
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'm hoping in 5 years||
people will really look back at this 2016 team and realize it had lots of limitations that the offensive staff had to work around. Starting with a rickety oline, an avg QB, WR's that could not run past the defense and if they did a QB who couldn't hit them often enough, a group of RB's that just weren't game breakers and need good blocking to get yards which they rarely got.
I think Michigan's offensive staff worked wonders with what they had available, they've made at least 3 or 4 guys viable NFL players who without their coaching probably would not make that level.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Chip Kelly||
is getting paid by two teams to not coach them anymore. Chip Kelly will take a year off from coaching, look for the right fit and be back in 2018. Could be NFL could be NCAA, but doubt the NFL takes a chance on a guy that bombed in two places.
I think a couple Pac12 jobs could open next year. Cal and UCLA. Kansas should hire that dude.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yes but ohio||
never drove more thatn 30 yards for TD, including the OT winner.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||On the one hand||
yes that does appear to be true. On the other we don't look like a flaming turd on a stick anymore in our biggest games.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||2 separate policies||
and whole shit load of red tape
Most likely Jake had the $4M injury policy even before his JR. year though probably not at that value, and he and his family went for the draft policy after deciding to come back.
The draft round thing is an odd stipulation, one I've only heard of a few times.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think we'll||
give up maybe a td more per game and still be solid. Don Brown defenses are tough to grind out long drives against.
Hopefully we have 2 or 3 true freshmen that contribute some to round out the depth and as you mention injuries, or lack of, would be very key.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Defense||
were warriors again and again we lose a game because the other team only has to drive the ball 30 yards for the winning score.
We lost all 3 games because our offense and special teams put the defense in terrible positions late in all 3 losses.
Taco Charlton was a beast today and the defensive MVP's, I will miss that guy more than anyone off this defense.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||We made one||
bad special teams play which was kind of flukey, (that play is almost always a disaster for the receiving team). That's the importance of special teams.
Believe 100% in my heart if we stick FSU inside their 25 there they don't reach midfield.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Playcalling||
in our biggest games left a little to be desired in key situations. It looked to me like we shot our wad of a playbook about 6 games too early and went into the last half of the season with everything we can do on film.
But a lot of it comes back to a shakey offensive line which looked weaker and weaker the more our opponents ramped up in difficulty.
Rebuilding our oline into Harbaugh's image is paramount to any success next year.

15 hours in the Detroit Metro International Terminal when my 7am Peoples Express flight was cancelled due to fog. It was the 2nd consecutive day of cancellations at Metro and People's Express didn't replace flights they simply stuffed you on the standby list and there were hundreds of people on that list. I ate a terrible airport sandwich that made me sick, finally boarded a plane to Newark, NJ where we would then be placed on another standby list to possibly get to Sarasota, Fl.
This was back when Newark's airport was a huge shithole of an airport with cramped hallways and gates, some of it temporary to support People's Express.. After a couple hours in Newark we were rewarded with a couple seats to Sarasota at something like 11pm and arrived in Sarasota just ahead of the fog bank sometime after 1am. We missed an entire day of only a 3 day trip to Florida to see my grandmother.
Another holiday trip we were rerouted from Atlanta to Columbia, SC due to fog in Atlanta and our plane not having enough fuel to circle. The delay caused us to miss our connecting flight to Puerto Rico which meant we would miss the launch of our cruise ship. So Delta hooked us up with a nights stay at a cheap motel and a flight first to Puerto Rico then aboard a piece of junk Eastern airlines flight to Barbados where we would be holed up in a janky hotel for two nights as we waited for the cruise ship to arrive.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||The LSJ||
is really running with the "sexual assault" headline.
Going to bet these charges are either totally dropped or seriously reduced in the future. Given the ELPD's past history with dealing with MSU athletes its very clear why this relatively minor incident has come to the light of day. You would hear nothing of this if Mr. Perry was enrolled at MSU.

they're like the mafia down there. Once you're in you can never get out.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Greg McMurtry||
was considered a big time get in the mid-80s as was Desmond Howard a few years later, though as an athlete I think.

to the kid.
|5 weeks 22 hours ago||He mentioned||
being from a small community, I kind of lump Hancock in with Houghton. But sure, Hancock is also nice.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure how long||
of a commute you're looking for, but consider Lake Linden, Hubbell, Dollar Bay even Calumet as alternatives to living in Houghton.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||The playoff system||
was always going to consolidate the top recruits at a small handful of school. Look at D2 and D3, same teams every year. Same will happen in FBS

this one sucks
|5 weeks 3 days ago||My lifetime||
is much longer than Calipari's time in Lexington. UK is the dirtiest program in NCAA basketball, has been for decades.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||In my lifetime||
Kentucky is one, two and three on that list. Then I'd probably go Kansas, Duke, Louisville and UNLV.
UNLV's days with Shark the Tark in charge were some of the darkest for college basketball, NCAA never could get him though.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||In truth||
a pretty weak field of candidates. Peppers is a great player, but there is a lot of hype there for things plenty of other players can do just as well or better.
Great player and I'll miss the heck out of him when he's gone. It should be a great honor for him to be invited to NY as a primarily defensive player and exceedingly difficult thing to accomplish.
Well done Jabril.

That's an actual thing to complain about
