This is amazing, he is amazing. I love this man more and more every day. We are the luckiest fans in the world!
|4 days 4 min ago||Assumption||
Since I think Harbaugh's policy is to have potential 5th year players "try out" for additional year, I'm thinking that the players will have that opportunity during winter conditioning and spring ball, so there is no way for them to know now who it will be. If any players does earn a 5th year, Harbaugh will likely do as Beilein is plans to do - honor them twice.
|5 days 4 hours ago||I don't get it||
Both Florida and North Carolina are over-rated and should be behind Michigan.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Why??||
Why are you thinking about losses now??? Now is not the time for this.
|1 week 2 days ago||Right here.||
That is why decisions on which teams are included need to be eliminated. The playoffs absolutely need to expand to 8 games, with each of conference's (P5) champion automatically in.
|1 week 2 days ago||Agreed.||
Jeff Long, the CFP chair, said they spent a lot of time on the top 7, which told me that they didn't spend much time on 8-25, other than maybe checking final scores. If it comes down to Stanford vs. Michigan for the final spot, they will certainly evaulate both teams very thoroughly and note Michigan's dominant victory over Northwestern vs. Stanford's loss to them.
|1 week 6 days ago||Thanks!||
Great stuff and the pictures were indeed outstanding! Appreciate your posting this. The "Letters to my Younger Self" are a really good feature on there.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||When we beat OSU....||
Iowa will jump into the top 4 (could be as high as 3 by then). So, then Michigan has a chance to knock of the #3 team, then follow up by beating another 3/4 team. No way Michigan doesn't get in, two losses or not.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Uh||
I'm sure if he goes, it's just to say hi to his sister.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||18:35 mark on the video||
Go to the 18:35 mark on the video, it's worth it. With the way he says it and the look on his face and in his eyes, you know he loves he here.....
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Well,...||
I assume he had Sean McKeon in the room, as he referred to him and if that was the case, I doubt he would pretend to do a cart wheel in front of him. So, I think he did indeed do a cart wheel.

that it was being recorded, with the expectation that it would be released to the public.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Hell Yeah!||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Mine||
Also, I like this guy's process (see link). He used a formula (as they do in MLB) and ranked them according to "quality wins"....has Michigan at #2 behind LSU. BTW, he's a Spartan. http://www.desertsun.com/story/sports/columnists/shad-powers/2015/11/02/lsu-no-1-quality-games-college-football-rankings/75045588/
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Correction||
No biggie, but Speight went 4/6. He hit Butt, Hill, Chesson, and Darboh on passes.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||So Glad||
I'm so glad they won and could bring the jug back home. Otherwise, it would have been quite the downer.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, they did||
It was "would", not "wouldn't".
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Oops, you misquoted him||
He said "If worms had machine guns, birds would be afraid of them." He was talking about how he doesn't talk about about "ifs" or "buts" and then made that comment.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Alabama?||
I don't get why they're so high. They almost lost to Tennessee yesterday and they have not looked dominant this season.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Building for 2015?!?!!!?????||
The guy is so disingenous. Who the heck would have been his starting quarterback in 2015????? It would have been Shane Morris or Wilton Speight (no Rudock, no Gentry) as his starter and with either of those two, I think Michigan might be very well 1-6 right now. Even futher, there would be no O'Korn and no Brand Peters either. Michigan would be screwed at the QB spot for years to come.
I'm tired of hearing about Hoke and wish he would just go away (and stay away).
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I don't know about that||
He wasn't a P5 coach before Michigan and I don't think he's one after either.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||On that first one||
Not only was the tackle tackled, but as Morgan tried to head up field, an OL grabbed his jersey and wouldn't let him take off...even more obvious than the first hold on that play.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Eh,||
I don't think so. Harbaugh has some visitors in town that will still be here on Sunday and has some film to watch, so I doubt he even attends, especially since it's in California. Also, I think this Kawakami guy is a little obsessed with Harbaugh, can't seem to stop talking about him. I honestly don't think Harbaugh thinks much about the 49ers at all, he's moved on, and I'm good with that.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Well||
If he keeps this up, he's going to have to change the name...
|9 weeks 2 days ago||There's so much wrong with this||
First off, they just played with a bunch of numbers based on the NFL model - that is wrong.
Second, there is more to Michigan's success then these particular players. The football team is not an independent entitity, it is a part of a university, part of an athletic department. The fans filling the stadium each week, buying the jerseys, watching the games aren't doing it to just to watch these particular players or any particular player(s) at all - they're MICHIGAN fans, as in the institution, the football PROGRAM, the university.
The power and attractiveness of the block M existed long before any of these players were born and as Harbaugh said at his introductory press conference, the foundation was built on the shoulders of great men that came before them.
The players are a part of something great, they aren't what makes it great, they aren't why the fans are so passionate. Heck, the stadium packed over 100,000 people into the stadium, even during the 3-9 season in 2008 (and every season since) - it's MICHIGAN that does that. Yes, the Michigan benefits from the current players, but so too do the current players benefit from the tradition and power of Michigan.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Uh||
First of all, schools are not businesses/corporations - they don't earn "profits" that are pocketed by ownership. What they do is collect funding for the school for current and future expenditures and most don't take in enough money to even cover the necessary costs.
Also, using a model the NFL uses where only the very best of the very best players from college teams make it to, is inappropriate. In college, the vast majority aren't good enough to go pro are quite happy to just be playing ball and have their tuition and room/board paid for at the same time. These players add value to the "team", but not more than what they cost the school.
No doubt there are some great players in college, some who will make it to the pros where they will deservedly turn their football talents into significant income and the others can use their education and turn that into significant income as well, though perhaps not on the same level. Either way, college prepares them for the next phase of their lives and that I think is compensation enough.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||I don't know, but||
I like the music and it didn't seem too loud at all (could hear those I came with and people in front and behind us too). I think the music gets people moving, gets them energeized, and ready for the next play. Music is a good thing, not something to hate.
|10 weeks 2 hours ago||Just my opinion, but||
I looked them up online at https://www.tailgaterconcierge.com/ and unless they're also supplying food and drinks, the price does not appear to be worth it. They want $395 for 1 tent, 4 chairs, 1 table, and a cooler with ice? For $395, I'll gladly bring that stuff myself and for another 4 tailgate parties.
|10 weeks 11 hours ago||Excellent.||
