the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

this is good because everyone wants Morris to get a redshirt, but he isn't the last fantastic qb that will come to AA. I live in VA, and I know coaches around the state, and Speight is legit, So is it the end of the world is Morris backs up for 2 years, and starts for 2? with Speight starting the 2 after that. and the next qb that comes gets his 2 years after that?

I don't like the idea that luck plays a part. Every team needs some luck, a bad call, or a lucky break to go undefeated. Michigan went 11-2 with at least 3 wins that could easily have gone the other way, (Ohio, VT, ND) and an exceptionally high and not reproducable turnover rate. That being said...although i think Kelly is a very good coach, I am not sold on ND being able to maintain, after losing some of the guys they lost. And don't forget the DE that was very highly rated as a frosh last year who left the program as well. They don't have the skill position players, and last year Denard was unable to take advantage of a secondary worthy of Michigan 2009. I expect them to have a good year, but with only 8 or 9 wins..and a huge victory vs Sparty!

I wouldn't mind so much either. I liek the changes, as long as they are one-off changes. A different uniform for some (not all) big games and bowl games is fun

Greeny plays the nerd role too much, and Golic is a meathead. some days I give it about 5 minutes then I turn to pandora or NFL network

is super cool...laughing all the time, and so energetic. It's infectious and I can easily see how wr's are drawn to him and will work hard for him

I agree...perception is reality and ESPN/SEC gets rolling on tv, people will take their words as fact

I've heard...Brown is keeping things quiet, but plans on visiting and has serious interest. He also camps with Hand often and the two have quite the rapport

after reading this, do you wonder if his twitter was ACTUALLY verified?
I mean, he needs his own section in Twitterverse right before Conseco

I know the whole "school" thing isn't popular, but a masters from Michigan while getting spot duty is not a bad idea at all. He may be realistic about his NFL future and a Michigna degree is..well..a Michigan degree. Even Jordan Kovacs was conflicted about his NFL future because he was accepted into an excellent grad program on campus, and was advised to pursue school over the NFL, because he would've made a lot more money long term staying at school.

is a great place to watch a game. It's unreal how that place lights up.
What's the over/under on whether Beamer will still be coaching then? I have him doing a Paterno and "coaching" until the end

LOL....its closer to LOLWUT? I guess it would help with an explanation...as in is everyone else just going to be worse? Or do they actually think MSU will be that good? Better than Nebraska? Michigan?
|1 week 4 days ago||There is a||
misconception that the value is in the players, the value is with the university. One can function without the other. Certain players elevate the visibility of schools, but is Trey Burke NPOY had he gone to Penn State? There are very few exceptions, but you have to wonder, does Tim Tebow have a similar following at Florida State or Miami? College athletic fans root for players of the their favorite school, not the other way around. How many players do you root for that decided not to go to Michigan?
|1 week 5 days ago||That's a good start||
I expect for that to increase as the year progresses and he gets more comfortable in the offense...but that was about what Reggie Bush got his first couple seasons
|1 week 5 days ago||Is it just me...||
or does it seem like Meyer isn't getting the great guys that everyone in Ohio seems to think he's getting? I see a few 5 stars, but specifically the OL/WR recruiting leaves much to be desired

needs to be on Lettermans Top Ten list...things Phil Jackson would rather do than anything involving the Pistons.

to agree with you, especially as a Michigan fan. Being one of the "haves" it's easy to feel that way. But because only 20-25 NCAA athletic departments turned a profit last year, (some notables who didn't include FSU who borrowed money from the school to balance the budget and UVA, and we've heard about Maryland's troubles causing their transition) that could essentially create 20 or so teams that are able to pay, well, and and 95 teams that cannot.
|1 week 6 days ago||Hand's visit||
is no surprise. His (new) head coach played at Auburn, and was a GA there for awhile. His head coach doesn't have the influence necessarily that some of his position coaches and coordinators have who have been there awhile.

I was with D Hand on his visit and the academic team is superb. They were honest, and told him that if he's lucky, he'll play another 15 years of football and that's it. They focus on time management and they do a lot getting the athletes out to spend time with alumni who work in their desired field until they find something they truly enjoy. I asked the lady about early draftees for example and she says she works with everyone, whether they leave early, and even guys that transfer. She mentioned recently helping a former player whose NFL career was not working out, and I suspect it's Brandon Graham.

Style is most important...Reggie Bush was ideal in his role at USC...and can that holing ball back be as effective catching passes

know if any of the guys have met him, but he is the coolest coach I have ever been around. Not what you'd expect

Sitting with the players parents is cool, right off the 50, home side, 13 rows back is fantastic, but the parents dont necessarily cheer as much as other sections do
|2 weeks 2 days ago||makes sense||
but with the coaching staff, it's evident that this defense is about scheme and not personnel. How many of these guys would've been projected to contribute to a top 20 defense for 2 consecutive years? The scheme wins. Also, you have to take into account guys like Frank Clark, Countess being a HUGE upgrade over Floyd, and the possibility of having an actual pass rush this season

loaded? With that OL? Have you read the reports about that super hyped DL in the spring game? and they lost Hankins and Simon? I think Michigan is better on both lines and at worst the game is a toss up.
