but, what you're failing to realize is that asking other Michigan football fans...on a Michigan football blog...in a board post is the wrong place to ask questions about where to watch Michigan games.
I have posted before looking for out of town bars, and I had a fantastic time in New Orleans at Prytania Bar, with the alumni club, and a fantastic atmosphere, despite Satan's punt.
The thing I have noticed is that people from the cities in question love answering and sharing feedback, but the snark comes from everyone else...I would imagine the people that always watch from their couch, or their bar in the city they never leave.

has already gotten their next coach. I heard from someone inside, that they have already agreed to terms with the next guy, it just isn't announced yet. He is currently a P5 coach though.

is very active on social media and I think they are interested in promoting awareness for this cause, more than drawing attention. I understand what you're saying, I would likely prefer to deal alone, but I think it is probably touching that so many people care and are willing to offer them and their son words of encouragement.

since you clicked on a fairly descriptive link...and took the time to comment.

He's somewhat limited, but he has played for very respected coaches...NFL folks love Ferentz and obviously Harbaugh. If Harbaugh gives him a stamp of approval, then you don't think someone would take him? Is he more limited than Kirk Cousins? I think he is almost exactly Kirk Cousins.
Aside form that, does he evn have NFL aspirations? Would he rather start his medical schooling/career?

But how many players in the NFL are worth a first round pick? I'd be surprised if there were 10. So you trade away parts to build a team full of 2nd/3rd round players over a period of 3/4 years? Assuming that ALL of those guys pan out, you have a competitive team in a few years. Also assuming you find a qb during that time.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I concur...||
because rookie defensive ends make an immediate impact...when? I also have a very good friend who is knowledgeable (and in the know) on such things, that Bosa is not expected to be anything more than a serviceable NFL player.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I don't know about that...||
As a coach...you teach the kids how to play within your offense, and a lot of it is predicated on simplifying things, so you can play faster. If he has too much information, or is busy reading through defenses at the college level (that are set up to p[lay mostly spread teams) then he might not be as successul. On top of that, if he is only running a couple different routes, he has no use to read defenses.
The question arises, does a coach owe it to his school to get the most out of an athlete or does a coach owe it to the athlete to make sure he has the longest career? A college coaches job isn't really based on how successful his guys are in the NFL, only how many wins he has in college right?

Minnesota as a reasonable place for Brady Hoke to end up.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||SO this partnership...||
With Nike...then Jumpman, and Jeter who is a Michigan guy, as well as one of the original Jumpan athletes...and now Jeter's website. Somewhere Dave Brandon is wondering why he didn't think of this....
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I have a cool story bro||
I have a cool story bro moment involving Green. So he went to my church when I was growing up and my mom and his wife were friends. I was at his house, I was probably 9 years old, one day playing him in Super Tecmo Bowl...he picked the Raiders, I chose the Skins. He's up 5, last play of the game, he throws a deep pass, I pick it off...with HIM, and house it for the win. I still give him a hard time for not trusting his teammates more!

Clearly, I am biased as well...but if an SEC team had a strong defense, with an elite HSP, that you cannot run against...consider that with an average run game, and a moderately decent qb...then you have just about every mid-level SEC team, every year. It's Bama to a tee, Tennessee, SC, Georgia. If Michigan had the same roster, same coaching pedigree, and same schedule but played in the SEC, they might be entered into the conversation at this point.
As Scott Van Pelt would say...how good is your good?
|9 weeks 4 days ago||It does seem like||
a jump to a conclusion. He's still a kid, who may do or say things that as adults we understand to have biiger implications than what he comprehends. Keep in mind, Snoop's son quit, and Puffy went ape shit on a coach there, and now they lose a 5 star TE. My friend who regularly talks to national recruits and coaches on both the HS and college level says there have been hints that something is going on over there that a lot of kids don't like.

if they get rid of the damn commercials. Every commerical break. On every channel. All day and night.

Between all my Michigan sites, and Twitter...I'm not doing anything work related today. (or probably this week.)

It should be noted that they are looking into whether or not athletes are receiving special treatment, or different treatment than other students.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||My HS team was pretty good||
A prep school in VA, we won 3 straight state titles, but private school caveats apply. A lot of our guys got D1 offers, our starting tb/lb got offered by UVA, Tennessee, and Stanford, chose Harvard. Vinny Testaverde went there, Eddie George, (both well before my time) and Chris Perry was a year under me. We also had a qb that I think ended up at Michigan as a back up, Shawn Cassidy I think. Also Carlos Hyde...last count had 17 players on NFL rosters, and Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Totally agree||
. He had a press conference and gave $1M to the Boys and Girls club. If he would've annouced he was staying, no one would've cared, he just would've been vreative. Cleveland fans butt-hurt because he left. He didn't owe ANYONE anythintg, you're right, other than himself. He clearly made the right decision, especially looking at Gilbert's comments the next day.
And I couldn't have stated it better: If you feel abandoned because a basketball player left CLEVELAND for MIAMI...matter of fact, if you are upset than anyone leaves Cleveland for fucking Miami...then that's a you problem.

That's how Century Link was designed, to trap and echo the noise from the fans directly back on to the field, which is why it's absurdly loud.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Cape Cod||
My fiancees has an aunt/uncle that live on Cape Cod, so we are leaving today around 2 pm, and driving from DC to Cape Cod.
Yaaaa Traffic in DC, Baltimore, Philly, NYC, Boston, and Cape Cod!!!!
No idea what the plans are, but we'll be there all weekend.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Has Nike||
never had a jersey rip or tear during play? That seems to be one of the biggest concerns when complaining about Adidas. If my opinion mattered, I would almost prefer to be the flagship program for Adidas, than one of the very many for Nike. Hell you can't even recognize MSU uniforms anymore, but the sentiment seems to be that Nike will be some sort of return to the way the uniforms were?
At some point Michigan will pull out special unis again, and I'm not any more comfortable with Nike's creative team designing them, than Adidas. With Nike, it's possible we could look like every other team on Saturday, just in different colors.

is a good guy. He's certainly a company man. He was an agent before coming back to Michigan to work. He's a point of contact for coaches and escorts players around on their tours. That being said, when I went on tours with Hand, Burrell, and Settle I wasn't impressed necessarily with his presentation. Not because he didn't do a good job, but as a lifelong fan, there are things I would've mentioned or discussed that he seemed to gloss over or ignore. We had been there the entire day, and I told Coach Hoke and Chris that we hadn't heard the fight song the entire time we were there. (Devin Gardner was in the room, and was forced to sing...and he has a great voice btw, a deep, classic musical talent that was reminiscent of....I digress)
Chris is a good guy, but I don't think he was a difference maker.
Roy, on the other hand...is a dynamic recruiter.

He's the one you called a sociopath, based seemingly on an article written by Deadspin and his support for a very close college friend.
As far as "descriptive way to introduce..." descriptive can be objective.
It's not relative in any way to Michigan, so it probably should've been OT.

with conference pride being bullshit, however i think Kentucky taking pride in Alabama/LSU dominance is different than hoping one of your conference-mates don't shit the bed on a national scale. The perception of the B1G is already low, and if Ohio would've got smoked by Bama, then it does hurt all of us. When ranking come out next year, Big Ten teams are moved down a notch or two because they are in the B1G, not because they deserve it.
