|4 days 3 hours ago||For the past couple seasons, ND has been||
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.
|5 days 15 hours 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.
|3 weeks 2 days 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.

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!
|4 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!

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.

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.
|6 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.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Fresno is||
PAC-12 country, so they interviewed a PAC-12 coach to guage his feelings. They were possibly hoping for an SEC like response I assume.

Especially on a particular November Saturday in Ann Arbor,1995. Took make it worse, my best friend was at that game.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I'm fine with||
MSU and OSU hauling in great classes. It might delay our return to the top a little, but I've got confidence it will make Harbaugh even more determined to take us all the way there.. If we won big immediately, I think it increases the chances of Harbaugh looking for a new challenge in five years. Enjoy the climb as we fight our way up gentlemen. The joy is in the journey, and we've got the perfect leader for it! The road to the top now goes through the Big Ten East.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Agree that the next 6 weeks are critical.||
If this team loses its fight, it might be time to rebuild. Hey, it could be a LOT worse folks. For a long stretch of years (early 90's through mid 00's) the Tigers were often completely out of it by Memorial Day. I remember dreaming of a season where we could just play meaningful games in August. If we do rebuild, at least we have some pieces to do it. Wait for Miggy to get hot, try to get two or three young studs for him. And I'm a big Miggy fan too. Of course this all assumes Mr. I is willing to look long term instead of short term.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Remember back in the early 90's,||
when Chevy offered a few of their models in turquoise blue? A friend of mine had a Cavalier in this obnoxious color. He later admitted that it seemed really cool when he bought it but within 6 months the novelty wore off and he couldn't stand it anymore. He had to sell it deeply discounted because everyone else had apparently become sick of it too.
Creating your own name for your child seems to share this type of risk. You might nail it and your child might grow up to really appreciate their unique name, or you might get the "What the hell were my Mom and Dad thinking?" response. As for me, I picked names I thought my children would appreciate as adults, not cutesy names that are better suited for the playground.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||A question.....||
How did you know you were "clearly" the number one candidate from start to finish? You received an offer, but maybe you were candidate 1A with several candidate 1B's waiting in the wings. You looked like a tough negotiation, so they turned to a more "eager" applicant.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||The real question is....||
where isn't Harbaugh?
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Dear coach:||
It is rumored that you applied for the UofM QB coach position under then coach Carr. i seriously doubt this! We all know that if you wanted that job you simply would have showed up on campus and assumed your rightful position....right???
|11 weeks 18 hours ago||Deep down they fear Harbaugh||
I'm pretty sure about that. But for now let them mock us and have their fun. I wouldn't go to their message boards touted Harbaugh this and Harbaugh that. Many of us saw Hoke's recruiting an assumed a return to glory would follow. I know I made an ass out of myself proclaiming to my ND friends that 2013 would be the year UofM was competing for titles. Notice how current players aren't making bold proclamations? Pretty sure thats instilled by the coach. Let your actions on the field speak for you. We as fans should do the same. Go blue!

Best friend is an alum. He offers me discounted tickets to games he can't make. Saw MSU there two years ago and UoM last fall. A few years back got to see USC also. Love rooting aginst the Irish, although I keep it mostly internal except for the UofM game. It is a nice atmosphere on game day though.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||MLB playoffs||
When the games were still played on weekday afternoons. Doesn't even have to be the Tigers playing. A tight game, late innings, tension with every pitch, I love it. And this is coming from a guy who finds the regular season a complete bore, besides the Tigers of course.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||As a kid I loved||
the Michigan Panthers. But even then I thought the name was bush league.

Saban ordered this statement, thus taking the pressure off himself.
|14 weeks 5 hours ago||Would have loved seeing||
Austin get role playing minutes in the future, but glad that he is dealing positively with the reality of the situation. Good for you Austin, you're correct in that you are so much more than just a basketball player.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||The reason its not being shelved,||
is because Harbaugh truly believes it! He believes they are going to compete like warriors in each and every game and come out victorious. And when the players buy into this.....well, thats when we get to see a Stanford-like ground game control our opponents. I can't wait!
|14 weeks 4 days ago||You brought me a Harbaugh for Christmas, therefore...||
your birthday begets you get my firstborn.
