Not a fan of the white ones.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Great devils advocate point||
Great devils advocate point comrade. There is a relatively simple way to deal with this. You allow players to receive endorsement cash, but only from NCAA-approved businesses (athletic apparel manufacturers, Fortune 500 companies, etc). That way the local booster can't turn the system into bribery.

Has Ted Ginn Jr always avoided contact on the sidelines? He's given up a few yards on three big plays.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||Oh yeah||
|29 weeks 11 hours ago||Where is Kareem Walker on here?||
Strange that he didn't even make honorable mention. Overall the list seems to have high variance from the scouting services.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||ND is a generational thing||
If you grew up watching Michigan football in the 80s and 90s, when the Mich-ND rivalry was bigger than even OSU-Michigan, you understand why it is important to get that game back.
If you cut your teeth on Michigan football in the 00s and 10s, when we started losing to OSU and MSU regularly, I can understand why you don't care too much about ND.
Just don't forget about us old timers!

Vodka and borscht for everyone!
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Correct, Comrade||
Harbaugh is in the underground network of hallways that connects the U.S. Capitol to the Library of Congress, the House office buildings, and the Senate office buildings. (The State of the Union is held in the House chamber in the U.S. Capitol; the House and Senate office buildings are separate structures from the actual Capitol).

Please comrade, nyet!
|39 weeks 3 days ago||Ask Harbaugh at next press conference||
The Cleveland.com hypotheses are sensible ones. It would be interesting to get Harbaugh's take on the issue. Conceding Ohio to OSU doesn't seem like it would be Harbaugh's style.

This explains why Michigan manball teams have never been good against the spread. Durkin's experience with read-option offenses will serve him well here.

Thanks Comrade. After the DB and BH firings I felt obliged to return from Bolivia, even if fascist manball remains in our future.

Could be Marrow doing due diligence on Michigan's future at TE by talking to Clark, in an effort to consider whether or not to take the job.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||The collective > the individual||
The inevitable march of History toward Communist Football cannot be stopped, Comrade. It can only be delayed.
The collective, the collective, the collective!
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Nyet Comrade!||
The helmets look so much better without them. And if you want to talk tradition—for the vast majority of Michigan's history, we haven't had them.

|1 year 34 weeks ago||Understood Comrade||
Yes, but there is such a thing as influence and motivation. I.e., perhaps Roman was the guy pushing for zone-read and pistol-type stuff, and Harbaugh said "ok, let's take a look" vs. Harbaugh being the driver of looking at innovative offiensive schemes. Far from clear as to which it is in this case. Hence it's worth asking the question.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Ah, for the good old days of Manball||
Things were so much better when we could beat real teams like Oregon, before RR ruined everything:
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Whoa||
Drevno clearly is a superstar with OL play, but what does this mean for the overall offense? Greg Roman was more diversified in his expertise and offensive play-calling. I suspect this means no read-option play at all.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||This seemed very intentional to me||
In John U Bacon's book, it was the former players who were the most anti-RR. If Harbaugh were in that camp, he could easily have wanted to snub Rodriguez. A real shame, as it would have helped unite the Michigan family.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||It left a bad taste in my||
It left a bad taste in my mouth that he didn't mention RR. Would have taken a second, and would have done a lot to unite the family. But as JUB has written, the anti-RR faction at Michigan is dominated by ex-players, and perhaps Harbaugh was one of them.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Whoa. What's up with the last||
Whoa. What's up with the last names and puke brown pants on the ND uniforms?
|1 year 34 weeks ago||I like your way of thinking Comrade||
If Greg Roman is the OC, your thesis may be proven correct.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Good stuff Comrade||
Unfortunate that 2015 won't take a Great Leap Forward, but I like our five year plan.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Harbaugh vs. Oregon read option||
Brian, Harbaugh's strengths are extremely impressive, as you say. Any reason to be concerned about Stanford's defensive performances vs. Oregon, as a proxy for his defenses vs. the read option generally?
