“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

|2 hours 46 min ago||Not on blocking assignments||
Which seems to be the critical area of separation between the two.
|2 hours 55 min ago||Have they started fall practice yet?||
I don't think they have. If not, "had" means "the last time I was allowed to see then on the field, Smith was in the lead." Not much more to be read into it than that, other than the difference is small enough that practice leading up to the season will help decide it heading into the first game.
|1 day 53 min ago||Could be buckled for awhile||
We're unequivocally in the lead, but he wants to take officials, so probably won't commit until sometime in the fall.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Fine, RR gets credit for 11-2||
But then he also gets blamed for no upper classmen two years on a row.
|1 day 5 hours ago||It'd be sad if it got him fired||
Or maybe you're right, a team of primarily sophomores on offense should be expected to win 75% of its games. Because that happens a lot.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Not getting the reference||
If it's there. But I'm Irish, or at least partly so, and I guess I'm sticking with my "Hershey's."
|1 day 14 hours ago||I prefer Hershey's syrup in my chocolate milk||
Quik lost me when they went to Nesquik.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Yep||
You've got mostly level 20-40 players. I'm in a clan of 50+, and we're talking about making the cut-off for new members 60.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Me too||
But if a kid has a great time, goes home, thinks about it, and then commits, I'll be less concerned about a decommit in the future.
|1 day 15 hours ago||You built your town hall up pretty quickly||
Too fast for my taste. I'm higher level than you but still at town hall 7.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Not really||
Game does a pretty good job of keeping players of similar levels near each other. Sure, if you want to be the top player in the world, you have to spend, no question. But if you can get near the upper echelons for free if you play consistently.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Not joining||
Your clan is a little too low level for me. What's your user name tho -- wanted to check out your base.
|1 day 15 hours ago||I've found it pretty addicting||
I recommend staying away from it. Definitely ropes you in.
|2 days 14 hours ago||?||
Is there something I missed? Hope not!
|3 days 20 hours ago||I read the headline||
And had the same initial reaction. After I read the story, I came to mgoblog to see if someone played with the heartstrings of mgobloggers. You are kinder than I.
|5 days 2 hours ago||The NFL can suspend them without a conviction or even charges||
Their CBA gives Goodell pretty wide latitude on "personal conduct." Suffice it to say, Ray Rice's conduct was less than good. If the NFL doubted the evidence, Rice likely wouldn't have been suspended at all. It's pretty clear that they tolerate Rice's behavior more than that of others who've been suspended longer.

I want to be an uninformed pessimist.
|1 week 1 day ago||Otto Porter looked good in summer league himself||
Which could say something about summer league, Porter, or both.
|1 week 3 days ago||No they're not renting||
They're taking players and helping them get better. If that means they're ready for the NBA in a year or two, great. But they're not haphazardly trying to get all the top high schoolers in the country every year, and pushing aside the upper classmen who weren't good enough to leave early.
|1 week 5 days ago||Yeah, they play in Phoenix||
It's why they're called the Suns. Clever, I think.
|1 week 6 days ago||I had no idea||
That Gardner only threw one pick the final six games. I guess last season is becoming muddled in my brain, which is a good thing.
|1 week 6 days ago||At least two are at home||
Syracuse, obviously. And Larry Brown coached SMU to a 27 win season last year.
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||I assure you this isn't limited to Ann Arbor||
People complain everywhere. They even go on the internet to virtual communities and complain about the complainers!
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||Will the NCAA even exist in 2025?||
Will football be banned because of concussions? I just can't conceive of games 11 and 12 years from now.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Bad grades||
Wasn't going to academically qualify this year. Better to go overseas than taking a red shirt playing school.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||2 years at least||
I'll be shocked if the NBA still allows one-and-dones by the 2017 draft. Might change as early as next draft.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||And if he did, he could keep his residency elsewhere||
Most athletes of his stature have residences in multiple states, and could, if they wanted, have their endorsement deals declared as income in one of the lower tax states. Heck, if LeBron can get a sizable portion of his next deal as a signing bonus, and could actually declare that Florida income, if he wanted to avoid a few hundred thousand in taxes.
|3 weeks 54 min ago||Because it occurred before he got here||
Simply that. Do I think it should have been dealt with differently? God yes. But it happened 14 months before he arrived. And if you want to think there weren't University lawyers who had a say in what happened there, go right on ahead believing that, but the only thing Hoke miffed on was making excuses for him last December, and that's covered in the PR section. Gibbons should have been kicked out of school a year before Hoke got here. He wasn't, and that's not on Hoke.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Extra Category -Treatment of Players||
Let's not forget that Hoke is in charge of 100 people somewhere between the stage of adolescence and adulthood. They're going to make mistakes, both on and off the field. With the exception of the Gibbons incident (and I'm not certain how much of what occurred fell under Hoke's authority), I really appreciate how he's handled his players as people, much more so than Meyer.
