It's Doc Brown

we;ve dubbed him 'Doc' Brown.

If Harbaugh likes him, I'm all for this hire. The only minor downside might be his age. Would like to see younger coordinators to grow that coaching tree. One day in the very distant future, when JH steps aside,, would love to see about a half dozen A+ candidates beating down the door to come back to Ann Arbor.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||6 would be right||
but a bye is too big of an advantage. Leave it at 4. Besides, I don't like the idea of a team losing its last game and still having a chance of getting in. 8 is too many, it would include 2 loss teams which lessens the importance of the regular season.

Rub a stuffed animal in Brian's face.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I'd just like to know||
WHY the NCAA feels a Monday night is the best time for the championship game. I understand the basketball reasoning.....packaging the Final Four on Saturday and championship on Monday. But Football??? Sure the NFL has playoffs going on, but can't we do a Friday night instead? Anyone know the reasoning?
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Not bashing on overweight||
people here, but I'd be concerned about his age and fitness level. From that standpoint alone I wouldn't give him more than 3 years. When you have a Harbaugh in your league, do you really want a coach that falls asleep at 10pm with a bucket of chicken in his lap? Okay, i couldn't help it. That was indeed a bash on overweight people and I apologize, or maybe I was speaking in hyperbole.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||The past couple games with||
OSU were closer than expected. I couldn't help but wonder if Meyer went easy on us, hoping it would help keep Hoke employed longer. (Although I'm sure Meyer didn't want a game as close as the last one) No doubt we'll be getting the buckeye's best shot now. A win over OSU would be HUGE, opening even more doors to elite recruits. I'm expecting a war on November 28!!! As for the original question. I'd say OSU -4.5

Try this: go to your facebook, search: Ian Nacy (lives in South Dakota) Not sure of his privacy settings, but if he's wide open you can see the video on his page.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I apologize everyone! I||
I apologize everyone! I thought since I could open it, you all could also. Its a fan video shot directly down the lline-of-scrimmage. Clearly shows ball placed just inside the one, and then the center cocking the ball forward, almost touching the goal line with it before the snap.

That angle showed me nothing i hadn't seen a hundred times before.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||No kidding. but I hadn't||
No kidding. but I hadn't seen a replay from a true angle yet. Thought possibly some others hadn't yet either.

Have you llost sleep over every Michigan loss over the past seven yers? If so, gotta hand it you, you're the ultimate fan!
|19 weeks 8 hours ago||i think Harbaugh stays a long||
i think Harbaugh stays a long time. Assistants will be poached, but Harbaugh will just develop the next up=and-comers. When he does step down I'd anticipate having a whole pool of excellent candidates wanting to come back as HC.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||I agree. Taking NOTHING away||
I agree. Taking NOTHING away from our great improvement, but once it was 14-0 it appeared BYU was ripe-for-the-pickin. Thats too much travel in one month, and this was pointed out beforehand by several posters who predicted a victory for the good guys.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Rudock||
I missed the 2nd half, but the most disappointing thing about the first half was no doubt Rudock, Lots of late passes or just badly overthrown. Seems like this would have been the perfect opponent to start hitting some medium range passes. The deep throws appear not even an option anymore. This team could still win 9 games, but probably not if Rudock doesn't hit his stride this coming week.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||My favorite metric is CGL||
My favorite metric is CGL otherwise known as: my Confidence in the defense when the Game is on the Line, Even the last couple years, with a pretty good D, your gut feeling probably wasn't good in the 4th quarter when we needed the big stop. I think that's changing...for the good!

looking at 2015 as the year they could legimately compete for an NC. Not sure if they were counting on Golson at that point. Hoping the irish fail miserably of course.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||I've watched a couple programs closely in the GR area.||
Basically, I see the bottom half of rosters getting less and less attention. Coaches are running up-tempo practices with more snaps and less contact. The depth kids who could close the talent gap by running drills just aren't getting them. They are standing around half of practice watching the starters run plays.. IMO many lack confidence because of this and are quitting football.

in many districts is hurting football numbers too.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||I enjoyed the ride||
Just the fact we're discussing this proves the TIgers have mattered. From about 1993 through 2005 we were buried and out of the race by Memorial Day. I only feel bad for Mr I., he deserved a ring. Not his fault the offense disappered in two World Series.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||///||
A 16 team playoff field means teams with 3 losses would be playing. The regular season should be about eliminating teams with more than 1 loss. You can't compare this to the NCAA basketball tourney or D2 football. We love it for a reason...every game all season counts! Leave it at 4.

But it was an easy course I played weekly in a league. Put me on a tough course and it may well have been an 85. Not all par 4's are created equal!
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Yes, the City League||
really brings back the memories! Friday night hoops in particular was great entertainment. It was fast paced when everyone else walked it up the court. Here's to the Red Hawks and Indians!
|31 weeks 4 days ago||GR Ottawa Hills||
Better known for it's basketball. Usually good to average in football. When I attended we were coached by former UofM player Jerry Dutcher, who played under Bo. The school also produced UofM LB David Harris.

get through the bar charts, the summary afterwards was awesome! Thanks for clearing up a lot of questions I've had about the OL!

I expected a little more from this thread. Is there anything here that any of us following the sateliite camps didn't already figure out? Offering under the radar types at this point is Harbaugh's 'method'. Lets save the term 'genius' for when the results are in.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||This is coming from a guy||
who wore Michigan gear everyday to school as a kid, but I too felt the need to put it away in my mid 20's. When I see someone 30+ out in public in whichever team gear, I can't help but be less than impressed. It's like taking the 'never wear another man's number' to the next level I guess. I cheer for the maize in blue like crazy but have too much pride to be a walking billboard for anyone or any institution/team.
