The guy holding the first down marker should be wearing a GoPro.
|1 week 1 day ago||nice||
Nice crowd at that Kurt Taylor game. Doesn't Harbaugh want to keep him to build a potential pipeline from Georgia?
|1 week 2 days ago||perks||
I think it's obvious there are plenty of major perks that go along with playing for a big-time program like Michigan. There are plenty of wealthy alums interested in mingling with and helping players.
But I also think it's impressive that schools like Michigan, Stanford, Notre Dame can compete nationally while having at least some academic integrity. I'd have to think school is low priority at places like Florida State, Oklahoma or OSU.
I'm sure this issue is much worse in basketball, where one player can make a huge difference and there are very few 6-10 kids walking the streets.
|1 week 4 days ago||cutback||
One interaction that haunts me is on Samuels' crazy run in OT2, he tried to cut back to his left and Glasgow stood right in his way forcing him to reconsider. But then Glasgow desides to chase and moves out of the way, giving up the open lane to run to 4th & 1. Make the tackle for loss there and I like our chances with a 45-yard OSU FG to tie.
|1 week 5 days ago||lost||
Lost anyway, but in the No. 1 vs. 2 game at Iowa in '85, Hawkeyes had an obvious touchdown catch ruled out of bounds.
|1 week 5 days ago||might||
You might be thinking about the '99 game. A-Train scored the winning TD on a questionable call whether he got over the line, but it wasn't 4th down.
|1 week 5 days ago||rivals||
I remember at the Desmond Heisman pose game, a sad OSU fan walked past muttering about how sad he was the rivalry was over.
Things change and it's going to stay huge for a few years at least. This is one of the few times it helps to be old, since I can remember 1976-2000 when Michigan dominated.
|1 week 5 days ago||made up||
Speight made up for the pick 6 by leading the offense on a TD drive, the bad fake punt negated the fumble on 1 yard line, but we had no answer for the second pick + TD. One more scoring drive would have ended the game.
Still have every right to be angry at the refs. The pass interference non-calls alone were incompetent officiating.

"Willfull ignorance of the facts" -- this statement couldn't be more absurd.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||if a play||
If a play is immediately dead when a player's helmet comes off, it should be a penalty for hitting a guy whose helmet is off. I don't fault the guy who grabbed the helmet, that was a fluke play, but that lineman came barrelling in to make the tackle on a helmetless player. I've never seen any enforcement of this, but clearly needs to be addressed. I think it was a dirty play by the Indiana lineman.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Mallett||
Mallett should have played the whole game; Henne couldn't function.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||almost||
Almost teared up watching his commitment video.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||usually||
The defense is mostly awesome, but there were times when speed at LB and S has seemed suspect, like vs. Colorado and Maryland.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||five stars||
Excellent work. I couldn't understand all the Twitter panic when this drive happened. How many times do we see a brilliantly-scripted first drive that has zero bearing on the rest of the game? Charlie Weis' first game against Michigan leaps to mind.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||wonder||
Wonder if Devin Bush knew he crushed one of the guys who posted those "100 days til they're locked in our stadium" tweets?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||if||
If the spread had been less than 9, the clock might have counted back to 2 seconds.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Tough duty||
It's tough duty being a top recruit. I remember Shaun Crawford couldn't wait to bail on Hoke (and who could blame him) for ND, and now two years later, Michigan is ranked No. 2 and ND is a raging tire fire. The world can turn in a hurry.
|7 weeks 20 hours ago||common||
I think this has been common for years in CBB, teams will get together, sometimes getting on planes to scrimmage in preseason with no publicity.
|7 weeks 20 hours ago||Sad||
I knew Drew in college, thought he was a great guy, always very nice. Nothing but good memories. So sad to hear this news.
|8 weeks 17 hours ago||Sad night||
My son is starting QB on his high school team, but I'm not even looking forward to the game tonight because the coach is the Hoke of high school coaches. They have no chance to win because he'll run it up the middle against 10 men in the box three times in a row, then punt on 4th-and-9. He's only a sophomore, so hopefully it will get better after we run this guy.
|8 weeks 17 hours ago||Where's||
Where's the guy who was working on the Higdon flip at his high school for like two years? More thanks coming your way...
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Could||
Could fill an All-America team with all of Hoke's decommits, though...
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Yes||
Yeah, it was 21-7 and Illinois was driving for another TD before an INT near the end zone began the 63-0 run. I remember Steve Smith running for about a 45-yard TD on a QB draw right before halftime. Also remember Bo throwing a bomb in the 4th quarter (for a TD, I think) with the scrubs in the game.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Can we||
Can we cancel Notre Dame and go back to Arkansas in '18? That switch is going to kill our SOS.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||that||
That took some guts. The upper deck at Sparty Stadium has won Most Unsafe Sports Structure in America for 18 consecutive years.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Instead||
Instead of taking a knee to run out the clock, should send Shane Morris out there and throw four Hail Marys, regardless of the score.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||3-star||
Interesting story with good info.
I'm hopping on the Ulizio train. My theory is most 5-star recruits are guys who were fully grown by 10th grade. There are successful programs based on getting the late bloomers. Hopefully, Ulizio is one of those.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||also||
BTW, I asked a reporter who covered ND football if he was happy to see Weis go. He said he'd gladly sign up for 10 more years of Weis in exchange for never having to deal with Jimmy Clausen again.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||story||
I liked this story, but Weis seems to have selective memory. There was a lot of talk at the time that his agent was threatening to go back to the NFL when ND gave him that stupid in-season extension.
If Weis really did leverage a 5-2 start at mid-season, that's a pretty rotten move. But ND should have said, "See ya." So it's on them, too. Pretty sure Perles and MSU had a similar transaction.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||difference||
I think the biggest difference might be Belichick has such a talent for player personnel. The Patriots keep reloading with low draft picks. His former assistants can copy the schemes, but can't match everything.
