Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Wow go away Leet. Post haste, be light on your feet..
|2 years 37 weeks ago||hayes?||
did I miss something about Hayes not playing? why is he not getting mentioned in the rotation, but instead Norfleet?
|2 years 43 weeks ago||I've gotta say that if that||
I've gotta say that if that did it for me I'd be the luckiest man in the world...
... the gloves are so bad.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||generally speaking...||
generally speaking I do not see why redshirts are not utilized more...
using Talbot's example: in one hand you have a true freshman playing special teams for a couple of games, and in the other hand a fifth-year senior fully developed and trained, which one is ultimately more valuable to the team?
I guess it is because you want to have a bit quicker of a cycle, to bring in recruits? Perhaps administration is putting the squeeze on due to the free tuition? I don't know. But to me it comes down to that simple concept noted above, true freshman on special teams, or vetted trained and developed fifth year senior...
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Big Ten pact||
Whatever happened to the Big Ten coaches pact that they wouldn't go after other member's commits? I ask this with a slight bit of sarcasm and seriousness. Urban pulling over Se'von Pittman was what made me think back to that. Obviously it is off the table, but did it ever exist to begin with?
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Borges||
I think Borges experience and diversity will help with Dunn and future recruits. He talks about moving toward Man-ball, but has the brains to use the talent he has. He is flexible. And I think this experience with Denard will help Borges to use more of his genius playbook. Man-ball players would be attracted to the intent and direction while Spread players would be attracted to his adaptability and creativity. All is good, the future is bright for recruiting.
Postscript... I am an unabashed optimist.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||yes rawls||
yes rawls either way. talent and potential that you can't pass up...
|4 years 22 weeks ago||good luck to him||
i wish the kid luck wherever he goes and except for any day that we play his team.
confused by your last sentence.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||source?||
source? and sweet...
|4 years 23 weeks ago||size/speed||
without researching too heavily my guess is that if he is a potential LB candidate who happens to play WR then he is a large WR. methinks similar to Cam Gordon's path of WR to FS, well maybe he's too big and slow for the FS role, lets move him down to a SS spot. I'd rather see Frost just come in at one and excel at it than get bounced around Cam Gordon style. however, if it takes he and the coaches a year or so to come to terms with where he is best suited fine. but I don't think that will be at FS...

unless Casteel gets poached before then. with all the scrambling going on right now you never know...
|4 years 23 weeks ago||casteelin' ?||
maybe we can-steal Casteel.
i'd still rather go with a straight 4 man front...
|4 years 23 weeks ago||great get||
a great get for Michigan. a bright light in a dull dark period. Good luck Desmond. Go Blue!
|4 years 23 weeks ago||gamesmanship||
that is all...
|4 years 23 weeks ago||ninja offense||
we have slot ninjas. we have Shoelace. we will have Dee Hart. Let's have our slot ninjas running back and forth creating misdirection, reverses, and the zone-read option between Denard and Dee Hart. All of that together makes for a dynamic unstoppable ninja offense.

that is just tarded... and not very telling...
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Ryan Seacrest||
I may be out on a limb with this, but even if DB fired Rich Rod and named Ryan Seacrest head coach I would still love me some Michigan Football, cheer and follow them till I grow my own wings... Michigan Football is bigger than its head coach...
|4 years 24 weeks ago||would like to snap it to a kicker who can score...||
speaking of, via MgoRecruit.blogspot we've offered a kicker out of california.
and a fantastic name he has for a kicker: Connor Loftus
|4 years 24 weeks ago||any discussion/insight on MissSt's injuries?||
does anyone have insight into MissSt's injuries, who's out, how significant, who may be back in time?
|4 years 24 weeks ago||it took me all night, but||
it took me all night, but I have from a inside source that it is in fact not awkward...
|4 years 24 weeks ago||not awkward i.m.o.||
DB and RR likely see eachother dozens of times each week. they don't need to look at eachother each time they walk by. they are like business folk in an office who see eachother every day. paying attention to their eye contact with each pass is... excessive pondering. imo...
|4 years 24 weeks ago||home team?||
I just read thru ESPN's bowl schedule and it lists "Mississippi State vs. Michigan". Does this mean that we are the home team and will be wearing blue? I'd prefer that by a longshot. Anyone able to confirm one way or the other?
|4 years 24 weeks ago||just win baby||
the recruits will come as we chalk up more victories. a victory in the bowl game will be huge.
a loss will likely, in my opinion, result in RR being canned (but only if Harbaugh makes the jump).
we win and the upward momentum and progress continues. we lose and we go through another transition period and stagnation.
just win that damn bowl game and sunny days ahead...
|4 years 26 weeks ago||generalizations||
your generalizations about "better, same, worse" do not trump the tangible improvements in record, offensive production, team chemistry, etc...
injuries to starting upperclassmen will have tangible results in the production of a team, no matter what side of the ball. for Michigan to have improved, made progress, the way they have, through the injuries and attrition, shows further that progress has been made...
|4 years 26 weeks ago||more than just floating||
we are patching the holes and repairing our guns.
|4 years 26 weeks ago||Boom goes the Triple H||
The new Triple H platoon of running backs: Hart, Hayes and Hopkins.
I made a bet about 10 months ago: this year bowl game, next year BCS bowl game, year after that NC. I know 2012 schedule looks tough, but our future is oh so bright !
|4 years 26 weeks ago||know that||
know that we will miss you and your hard work Boys n da Pahokee...
thanks for the good stuff...
|4 years 26 weeks ago||crap||
if you put crap into something you can expect crap to come out...
|4 years 26 weeks ago||deployment of all measures||
any idea what special plays or tricks we may be pulling out this weekend vs osu?
tate and denard lined up together in the backfield?
vinopal lining up on the D-line?
|4 years 26 weeks ago||happier to get Crawford||
now that you mention it I am happier that we got Crawford. Had we received Sammy and then lost out on Crawford I would be more disappointed. Crawford, at his postition and with his headiness and skill level, is a much greater need for our the team...
