Oh wait, there are two 4 and 5 star JUCO tackles ready to play but they are going to Alabama and OSU.

You had to go for it.. No one was stopping their running game.
The play call was fine. Four options to win it. Better ankle he runs it and we win.

Lots of Red in premium seats.
|1 week 6 days ago||Recruits & Opportunities||
Honestly, outside of Alabama is anyone really playing for a national championship? Saban is head and shoulders above everyone else including the guys over at OSU. In fact, if you are a Freshmen or Sophomore at Alabama it will be difficult to get playing time. Any athlete who relishes the opportunity to play and to play early in their career needs to look at a program like ours. There are ample opportunities to compete and to play early at Michigan - especially if we tweak the coaching ranks.

Hang in there. We all face adversity in life.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Perspective time||
I think the coaches have failed. I think ticket prices are too high for amateur athletics. I hate that athletics influence our lives disproportionately and that pro athletes can make 20 million just by cheating and taking steroids. I hate that a very good man is struggling with who he is and his future and that he somehow thinks that this is all his fault. Gardner is a Michigan man through and through. Just like Denard, if he has a future playing football it is at WR. I despise the anger fans have at Devin. However, I hate even more that millionaire coaches can't figure this out and are not able to help him. After the loss to OSU we need to put in Morris and push Gardner back to WR. That gives us Funchess, Chesson, Darboh and Gardner at WR. We will have two pretty good RB's and a five star QB. If our coaches cant figure out the obvious then yes they should be fired.

So does Auburn, so does eveyone in the SEC. I get it. We don't care about national championships only fighting for the Big 10 Championship and maintaining our academic reputation. However, if our academic reputation mattered so much answer this question. Why did I have 20 football / basketball / hockey athletes in my summer Communications 101 class but none in any of my first year engineering classes? Later when I transferred to LSA I did not have any athletes in my statistics classes nor in my economics / 200 level accounting classes. They also did not exist in the 400 level economics classes.
I will tell you why. Athletes in revenue producing sports have almost no extra time to go into Pre Med, Engineering, Pre Law or the BBA programs. Athletics is a full time 8 hour per day job and we are kidding ourselves if we think otherwise.
Honestly, we have bigger academic problems if taking 2 or 3 Jucos per year matters academically. Just take the Juco kids and "teach them up" so that they will do well and then go win some damn football games. Our elitism is killing this program.

There needs to be two NCAA seasons. One for the south and the west and another for the midwest and the northeast. Games start in February where all the northern teams travel down south or out west. They start games up north in the middle of March. I assure you in the middle of April it still sucks to play travel ball in Michigan. I have a HS sophomore catcher who has been to the camps. Coach Bakich is a very good coach. He seems to have some quality assistants and a good system. Heck, I stole his baseball warmup drills from him when I managed last year. I believe he will in a couple of years compete for a big ten title. However, the reality is that the majority of baseball kids are trying to get south and Coach Bakich will have to continually find the diamonds in the rough and kids like this last kid who developed late or was under the radar. The good news is baseball is a late bloomer sport so if he is good at development and looks at player development as a 3-5 year process he should compete long term. The kids down south are all looking to blow out and go pro after 3.

Lewan: Where I am projected to go?
Agent: Somewhere around pick 5. You should make millions.
Lewan:Who picks 5 and what do they need?
Agent: The Lions and um well everything. Look at it as chance to replace another Michigan guy who is going to retire. You get to stay local and be part of the next Lions rebuilding project.
Lewan: Go Blue!

Are they Spartrats abandoning the ship because their captain is interviewing for other jobs where it will be easier to recruit and win? No one can accuse Dantonio of being dumb and it does not help that the greatest coach in Spartan history is playing for yet another national championship down in Alabama.

Us economics majors never did much paper writing but my vote is for the word dominant.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Feeling that WR is going to be full time||
OK QB vs potentially dominating WR. Hmmm. If he was the next great thing at QB he would have won the starting job.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Only way to get your price is to create a scarcity||
Simple. If you want someone to commit, they can't believe that the spot will be open forever. Fortunately you get most of what you want with this strategy. Unfortunately you will always lose out on one. I am happy getting 95% of what we want. Now if we were Alabama, we would be doing the Alabama Shuffle and telling all the 3 star players how tough playing time is going to be for them.

Um this is serious stuff if true.
Home Invasion in the Second Degree - MCL 750.110a (3)
Second degree Home Invasion is another Michigan felony and it is punishable by up to 15 years in prison, a fine of up to $3,000, or both. Michigan Home Invasion in the second degree is similar to Michigan Home Invasion in the first degree, with the difference being that the third element (involvement of a dangerous weapon or someone lawfully inside the dwelling) need not be met. Therefore, a defendant can be found guilty of Second Degree Home Invasion in Michigan the prosecution can prove the following two elements:
(1) The defendant must either break and enter a dwelling –or– the defendant must enter a dwelling without permission.
If just one of these elements cannot be proven by the prosecutor, the defendant cannot be found guilty of Home Invasion in the second degree.

Those are important lessons.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Excellent Strategy||
If you want the best kids coming to your camps, you have to have a "scholarship" prize or two for the winners. This assures you of seeing all of the late bloomers.
You get to assess a kids work habits, ability to compete, character etc. I think it is brilliant. Go Stribling!
|1 year 26 weeks ago||my reasons||
1) He is going to touch the ball 6-10 times per game; 2) He will grow and probably be a backup center as well; 3) We are telling the Big Ten and the country that we are kicking your butts so hard in recruiting that we now have the luxury of taking a long snapper.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Bias towards players currently not committed||
I think the recruiting services like the sexiness of recruits still in play and rank them higher to draw fans into their sites to see the race to get these top ranked in play recruits.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||What is the draw?||
I love Michigan and I love baseball. Biggest thing when I was a student was that they never promoted the baseball program to the students and today, they really don't promote the game to the baseball fans in SE Michigan (I don't know if they promote it to the students today.). Many of my friends will go down to Toledo to watch a AAA game but not to Ann Arbor to watch baseball. I am not a sports marketing guy but i think they need to have a bigger plan than just a new manager if you are going to create a baseball powerhouse in the midwest.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Gets 2 more years||
I GM 2 travel baseball teams while coaching one of them. My younger team of 12 kids has had 4 broken bones including my starting SS and we are 1 game over .500. My older team played in a tournament and the day before it started I received a call from a parent stating that his child has suffered a concussion playing hockey and could not play.
When you lose your starters it is tough to compete. Should we fire ourselves for injuires? Now if it because of poor recruiting classes and poor managing then that is a different story.
I think they will be fine for a midwest program. Bigger reality is talented baseball players don't want to play in the Midwest because the season starts in February.

Had he said yes prior to Spikes commitment and Trey's return he would have been able to go to Michigan. No he wanted to be recruited and missed out.

I feel for the Kozan kid. Deciding on a college should not be this hard.
A) You want to be in the South
B) You want to be in a corn field
C) You want to play in front of 112,000 fans.
