It was so nice to watch that B1G Elite. I didn't see the whole thing, but it's this nice enjoyable story about what seem to be good guys and elite players making a once in a lifetime run, and right at the climax your favorite team runs in and dunks on everyone, hitting the shots and cutting down nets.

Sam Webb was indicating that the Dwayne Haskins kid is someone the coaches are putting a lot of prioriy on, and they continue to pursue Jacob Eason even though he's re-affirmed his commitment to Georgia. Harbaugh doesn't appear concerned tht he's pledged to another school.

Does Drevno not have matching pants for that dark suit? You don't have to match it, you can go dark/light (Wheatley) or light/dark (Jay Harbaugh), but you can't go charcoal/dark blue.
If it were possible that his comment not spur a re-hash of that gd dress, I'd be appreciative thanks guys.

why? So you can call in and gloat? So you can listen to them squirm/excuse/whine/whatever method they choose to continue to engage and troll you? No you do not know what they're doing, they know what they're doing, they're sucking in Michigan fans who are aren't thinking critically enough to recognize the outrage/placate/outrage cycle they've sucked you into

they feed and troll off your outrage as a Michigan fan. I don't know why you continue to listen to that tripe, but it's much worse when you don't understand that they're trolling you, so much that you bring your complaint here. Listen or don't, but don't give them free publicity on a Michigan board
|3 days 3 hours ago||I agree there's not a lot to||
I agree there's not a lot to make that pick, but there is something: he got quite a few reps in the spring game/practice thing last year, and in the mgoblue practice "Michigan" drills. I'm not sure it's enough to go on, but those are college reps. I like his feet a lot in those videos, and the athleticism and quickness at his size. Unfortunately it alternated between solid snaps and complete busts in both run and pass blocking. If the light is coming on and he's losing those negative plays (if that in fact is what's meant by light going on), that's great news.
By contrast, there's a lot more LTT data out there than Malzone, who's in his 3rd college practice. Two of those non-padded. If there's inside info that supports Malzone over Spreight or Morris, I'd like to hear it. Otherwise that seems the pick most boggling. And I'm a big fan of Malzone, I think he just plays and wants to win, smart but doesn't overthink everything. Focused and consumed with winning. But that's HS film.

He's 3 practices in, only one in pads. I'm willing to buy Malzone being front, but like the comment you replied to, I need a reason. There's no way anyone can say he's the most capable of what you say above after 3 practices.
Is there something else - has he shown himself a leader in winter conditioning, is he acting like the job is his by knowing the playbook quicker, staying later and working harder? In a world where no one is standing out, I'd believe showing the "it" factor while on campus could mean something. But I haven't heard anything like that yet, and there's no way a true freshman EE has already proven it on the field 3 practices in.

The part about LTT's light coming on is my favorite. Yes, Godin to SDE I've been clamoring. And Alabama wanted Poggi as an H-back blocker, and on his HS film he had a great knack for targeting guys and anhilating them. Could happen, but if they're moving him from such a thin position that doesn't sound good.

Your suggestion is something that's really not the same, and bolsters my comparison.
You propose shuttering up your sentiment in the digital world, where I compare that to shuttering yourself up in the real world. I don't think either make sense. Otherwise, what use do you have for these worlds? And I would not suggest you post your personal information in the digital world, just as I would not suggest going outside into a crowded public space and yelling it out loud or writing it on a wall. That would be foolish in either world.
But congratulating your daughter on twitter and posting your bank account numbers is not the same. The former is really a large part of what social media is for, the latter would obviously be a silly thing for you to do.

there are degrees. From Oregon being legendary at squeezing in every rep possible, to perhaps Hoke, who seemed old school on many fronts, who seemingly didn't. I don't remember anyone else pointing that out during Hoke's tenure, so yes Brian deserves credit.

This should be obvious, in my mind, but I'm using those examples as a representation of what those players do. They consistently hit hard and have the ability to do that as players. The toughness mentioned in the presser and the comment I was replying to.
I think these coaches will value that more than the leadership and line-them-up that Bolden brings, was my point. No I would not suggest Jareth Glanda become our starting wide-out based on his awesome 11-yard catch in the Sugar Bowl.

QB play was the achilles heel last year. I'd even put WR (lack of separation) and RB (can't hit open holes, some of them glaring) ahead of OL In terms of struggles. It's all connected though, so hard to judge. But Devin made some terrible decisions at points when the line gave him time, and the RBs missed a lot of holes they made. Not a great OL, they were below average early and maybe a bit better than average late, but not the reason the O was 100+ in the country
|6 days 10 hours ago||Scheme - the "Rays of Light"||
Scheme - the "Rays of Light" post summarized his thoughts on the players, but on the radio (which that article is based on) he talked about scheme. He said they'll be playing a 3-4, but depending on when or why they may want to walk someone down to the line of scrimmage, it may resemble a 4-3 Under. Which to me always looked like a 5-2. He says they're doing this because they have the personnel to do this. I assume that means LB's.
Do Ojemudia/Charlton/Marshall become one of the 4 LB's? I assume so. It would also guarantee Ross gets on the field consistently, which is great. Don't know who goes to the sideline when they go nickel, I assume that depends on team and scheme.
RJS lack of redshirt is a damn shame. I think he could be good - and you could argue that he should be able to break through if he was that good -, but may not ever see the field as a starter at Michigan. He was never going to be useful as a freshman, so that was just a complete waste. Thomas is the other crying shame, but I can at least see that they thought he might break through due to his athleticism.
|6 days 11 hours ago||This is one reason I believe||
This is one reason I believe Ross and Gedeon may nab starting positions this year, even in front of Bolden and Morgan. Morgan's a thumper, no doubt. But Gedeon rocked a kid in the OSU game last year, and I thought how it felt like a while since I've seen Michigan as the active punisher in that game (Clark's sack on Miller was a QB from the blindside). And Ross absolutely demolished blockers on two of my favorite plays last season.
Calling the defense will be important with a new scheme, and I think that's a big reason why Bolden was out there. Ryan wasn't vocal and Bolden got everybody lined up - he's very sharp and a great leader in that regard. I think Hoke and Mattison prized that over contact. If Ross and Gedeon can get that part down, I think they play. Ross even in the middle.

That's not a little thing with OL, that's a critical thing always. A lot of the steps and movement are designed to get the head on the right side of the defender's body - it cuts them off from the play

Gwendolyn Bush has been a huge hit with parents, according to Sam Webb. I know the Jordan kid's dad referenced this, and I think Webb mentioned another partent did as well. Not only for players on the roster, but for recruits, this looks like just a home run hire.

I'm detecting a disctinct lack of Hackett hate. If DB were still around 90% of the comments above would at least have a deraogatory mention, and 50% would blame him for all.
Lots of hate for the uniforms, yet here no one has mentioned the current AD. He's certainly been around long enough to have put a hand in this - to the extent that posters believed Brandon controlled uniforms, they must logically believe Hackett does as well.
|1 week 11 hours ago||Va Tech was a 50-50 call, it||
Va Tech was a 50-50 call, it wasn't terrible. And you mention it in the OP, but I bring it up when people say "lucky!": the game wasn't over on that play. Lots of anti-Michigan fans have it in their mind replaying as the game winner for Va Tech. It wasn't, Michigan was going to get the ball on the next series of OT. It was a pivotal play at a crucial juncture, but it wasn't decisive - there was more football to play.
PSU extra second qualifies under this criteria. And for the calls against, the trip of Howard and clockgate at Sparty were much worse. Charles White fumble happened in the 2nd quarter. Absolutely a critical play, but way too much game left for that to be the deciding factor.

"In most areas of the world". This simply isn't true, come on. I agree with your overall point, I believe it should be legal and the women (or men) offering should receive the full share, without fear of prosecution or falling under a pimp.
But to imply that most of the rest of the world is somehow ahead of the curve on this is silly (assuming you and I have a view that's ahead of the curve - there is a morality argument against legal prositution that's more than just bible thumping), and it's US bashing for no reason. The rest of the world isn't some wonderful playland of free spirits and really cool soccer teams. A lot of it sucks hard core balls, and punishments and outcasting on this particular issue are much harsher.

I'm excited to see what the LB's and DB's can look like if they actually get to stay in the game. Rotating DL is great, rotating LB's and DB's doesn't seem like the best strategy. I hope Durkin lets a guy win a job (if only for a week) and play full game.
