Only 2-4? That's not bad, and it's not going to be below freezing until Tuesday. At least in the DMV everything shuts down with every little bit of snow.

This is the locker room at the stadium, not the one in Schembechler hall which is very nice, with a sunken area in the middle of the room for the seniors.
|1 week 3 days ago||These things are great though||
and as a kid, why would you not want to have that opportunity? I was closely involved with Hand's recruitment, and I went to his announcement, and the entire school was involved. The seniors and the football team all got out of class to attend, and the administrators took an opportunity to speak as well. It isn't just about the player, but the school, coaches, teachers, and students who were a part of his high school career. As a high school football coach, wouldn't you want a nationally ranked recruit to announce publicly? Even as that kid's parents, it's exciting and fun, and I don't belive it necessarily makes him a diva.

and I would hope that everyone wawnts to see him succeed. He's got a fantastic attitude, given the adversity he's faced in his years in AA.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||so...||
explain to me how a 20 year old can "develop" the brand of a $100 million dollar a year, hundred year old athletic program?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah...||
your points are all valid, but logistically it couldn't work. As the previous poster said, people watch the teams, not the players. So in all fairness, if the player can make money on their own, without using their affiliation to the university, than so be it. Meaning autographs are fine, as long as there is no school/conference/NCAA logo on it. Sounds ridiculous, but it shows, that the individual without the school is not marketable. The school has all the leverage, and that's ok. As someone still paying student loans off, I would love an opportunity to go to school free, regardless of the infringement upon my time. Not only going to school free, but also having an opportunity to showcase my talents to my future employers, as well as have several programs in place in case I decide or am forced to change careers. Not taking advantage or appreciating of that isn't the fault of the university. It almost sounds like you want things to be "fair." And if it's fairness you seek, is it fair that the qb would be able to generate more income than the kicker? Or center? or the right tackle? Is it fair that in paying football players, the lacrosse program is cancelled?
Keep in mind, you'll be a Michigan fan, regardless of who wears the helmet. The players aren't capitalizing on themselves, they would be capitalizing on their affiliation with the university.
Ultimately it's a choice. You want this opportunity to be not only be afforded to particular individuals, but you want it to be afforded to them in a way you think is "fair" as in a college education isn't valued as "compensation." Maybe the fact that only 28% of the US (over age 25) has a college degree contributes to the lack of importance placed on a college degree in our society.

He has elite size and speed but his hands have gotten worse during this year which is why he's been dropping in rankings.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah....||
Probably not. If you actually listen to Dan's show regularly then you would know that that doesn't mean anything definitive. While it may be true, he wouldn't be breaking news like that.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Hackenberg will be a first||
Hackenberg will be a first rounder, Shane has the all important arm strength. But Notre Dame isn't sending them to the league like they used to either. #3 on a ND qb was like #1 at Michigan. Notice there are no Bama, OSU, LSU, or Oregon qbs starting. College dominance means nothing.
|19 weeks 7 hours ago||I wish...||
I could have as much confidence in the offense as I do in the defense. I'm prepared for both extremes Saturday however.

is am embarrassment to football, but they do this once a year around this time.
|21 weeks 6 hours ago||Same dilemma||
I think it is better for Michigan if MSU wins, but only if Michigan beats them. I am torn, I feel dirty rooting for MSU, ND, or OSU. I kind of want MSU to get embarassed honestly. If Michigan were to get a playoff bid, they would have to go undefeated and that would give an advantage over a 1 loss team from another conference.

|21 weeks 2 days ago||I agree with Tripp||
...I think he is a better fit, than he is a coach. Not to say he is a bad coach, but he's a great fit. NW seems a bit closer to Duke, than Stanford from a football standpoint, and I doubt any prolonged success is a reality at this time.

read yours before posting mine. Don't forget NW losing Mark and Jones, and the PSU regime change. Expecting Franklin to be as successful immediately I think doen't take into accoutn how good of a coach BOB was/is, especially with Hack. I wouldn't be surprised if Hack takes a small step back this year.
|23 weeks 8 hours ago||I feel obligated to defend Desmond!||
If for no other reason, than his punt return vs Ohio.
Returning SR QB, All conference WR, 1(?) starter lost on the defense, OSU lost their starting qb, ND lost 4 very good players and gets Golston after having a year away from the game. If Michigan goes injury free this year, and gets a couple bounces then anything can happen.
I'm almost(ed-not at all) positive that's what he was thinking as he analyzed his selection deeply and thoroughly.

Other than Florida, Oklahoma, and Arkansas a little, I'm not thrilled about any of the other match ups
|23 weeks 1 day ago||I don't know if it's a huge||
I don't know if it's a huge deal. Would it have helped against State? I think the timing is probably more important, not having time to identify defenses and call audibles
|23 weeks 1 day ago||lol, thats great||
2. "Shit or get off the pot" isn't a great way to propose (What Chris O'Donnell movie was that?)
3. Remember to breathe.

Did I miss the "big announcement" last week regarding 2 future opponents?
|23 weeks 2 days ago||I agree||
I didn't feel like he was contributing as much as his predecessors. And speaking with some players he interviewed, he din't particularly leave a lasting impression. I enjoy and appreciate the work that was done, but I think the people who previously held his position were a bit more dynamic, and he wasn't around long enough to meet the standard.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||depends||
I almost always say it, or sometimes I'll ask if they are a fan or just wearing the shirt. The ones that don't respond typically snub their nose or act like they didn't hear me.

|29 weeks 1 hour ago||You're right||
I think most talented athletes are so gifted they aren't as studious of the game as those who overcome physical limitations to be great. It's why great players typically don't make good coaches either.
