Glen Lake is by far my favorite lake in Michigan. Highly recommend this area (sleeping bear, Leland, Leelanau peninsula). You will not be disappointed.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Me||
Occupation: Asset based lending at GE Capital ...for now *sigh*
Location: Born in West Michigan. Live in Chicago.
Alum: LSA class of 2013 (Economics)
Most Michigan thing: Junior year my roommates and I repainted our porch on Vaughn St completely Maize & Blue with a large block M on the floor. Looked (looks?) awesome. Can somebody on campus verify it's still painted that way for me? Thanks.

Yeah, I get that. I was just asking because he was a sophomore last year and could have been on the JV team but he was pulled up to varsity even though he didn't play much. They must have valued daily practices on varsity as being more beneficial than game experience at the JV level where he would have been a focus.

Considering he only had one reception for 14 yards I'm curious why he didn't play on the JV squad instead. It seems that if a team is going to pull up a player to varsity he should be ready to see significant time. I'm wondering if he could have gotten more valuable playing experience down a level. I'm sure practicing with juniors and seniors on a daily basis was good for him though.

I don't need much incentive to mix up a White Russian. This will do. Cheers

Simply because Devin Gardner deserves to end his Michigan career starting. Shane Morris will have his fair share of games. I see where you're coming from but I respectfully disagree.

I thought it was a dig at the Jabari Parker to msu "report"

Shouldn't the win percentage against OSU when tying ND be 0% or 100% since we only tied ND once?

both times that Don Bosco kicker made a 40+ yard field goal look easy.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Good point||
I agree with this. I don't care how good of an OL coach you are, good luck teaching your players how to block more than one guy at a time. Borges is not helping the linemen with these predictable runs where the defense stacks the box. For the time being the offensive issues cannot be placed on Funk enough to justify letting him go.
That being said, obviously the offensive line personnel could be doing better and that, at least in part, is on Coach Funk. I'm not saying he's innocent in this debacle.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Good idea but too late||
It went out 3 hours ago with a 'hip deal' or something.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||My fear||
extends far beyond Indiana. I am now scared of anything I perceive to be unbalanced. I demand symmetry. I have 3 pens on each side of my desk right now. My lunch box is on the floor because I don't have a second lunch box to place up here next to me. This is my safe place. This is my safe place.....
|1 year 44 weeks ago||I'm curious..||
..why did the Michigan football coaches decide to play Morris then? This is their job and while I'll agree that anyone can get split second (in game) decisions wrong, playing Morris against CMU wasn't a snap decision. I'll default to the coaches on this one. They know a lot more about footballing than any of us.

They make him look like Ed Helms.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Well, you see...||
He asked his team if they wanted Wangler to commit and after a unanimous vote 'yes' Wangler had no choice but to oblige by decommitting from PSU and commit to the LSU, the place where you can be whatever your teammates want you to be.

First visit huh? That doesn't get you as many points as the last visit so hopefully Michigan has a high weekly bonus.

His initial impact is powerful but he'll have to keep his feet and drive through in college. Relies too much on that first hit to knock the ball carriers down and college running backs will just shrug him off. That should be easily remedied though with good coaching.
Overall this is an exciting pick up. Have to like his size for a linebacker. What league does he play in for high school? Competition looked "iffy" at times.
Edit: Nevermind. Extended hello post answered my question.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Hmmmm||
So Peppers brought his football team their first championship since '97? Interesting...
|2 years 16 weeks ago||C'mon bro||
|2 years 20 weeks ago||He is a large person||
but, coming from somebody who played Rockford every year in football, their runningbacks are generally 5'5" max. They go the short and stout route and the guy standing next to him is in that same mold.
Edit: I'm speaking about Braden. Thought I clicked reply to somebody commenting on his ability to consume the player he is standing next to in the picture.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Maybe||
Say Tom Brady just to clarify. I thought you were talking about our beloved football coach.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Awhile back||
there was an interview with Westphal where he stated that the UM coaches told him to take his time and not commit yet. He might just be taking their advice and going through the process more completely. It's pretty clear he likes Michigan and has maintained that they are the "standard" since that interview.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Ok||
I'm not saying anything illegal is going on, it could all be his own hard earned cash, but don't say $50 when $300 is clearly visible plus a stack of bills below it. Looks awfully fishy to me and the fact that it was deleted soon after only adds to my skepticism.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Same division||
I hate the idea of playing Ohio twice a year let alone 7 days apart. It severely dilutes the meaning of the rivalry for me. It's called "The Game" not "The Games" as would become the norm if they remain in separate divisions.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Green is a special talent..||
However, I think Deveon Smith is vastly underrated. If you look at his senior highlights he is very impressive. His film is arguably more impressive than Green's. I'm sure caveats about competition apply but Smith appears to have a high ceiling, especially behind those offensive line recruits you mentioned. Green is important but Smith will be very productive as well. I'm not so sure I would peg him as more important than others.
That being said, it's great to be in a position with recruits like this where we can debate about which 5 star is more important rather than hoping for any 5 star at all. It's a no lose situation as far as I'm concerned. I would like all 3 (Green, McQuay, & Treadwell) obviously, but if we don't get any of them this class is still has a great mix of talent that will accomplish big things. Go Blue.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Wisconsin?||
Maybe Wisconsin will take a look at Butch Jones now. Wouldn't be a bad hire for them and considering the schools courting him you'd have to think Wisconsin could get him if they wanted to.
