Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

I gave the minimum and got the email.
The site has been down for me as I've tried to log in and purchase over the last 12 hours though. Not sure if others are having that issue?

No, most of the students at Dearborn and Flint do not get into Ann Arbor.

The matte helmets were awesome. Everything else in this piece is accurate.

So, the same dude who whines about old people in the stadium telling him to sit down is now throwing an internet hissy fit and threatening a kid for suggesting something outside of tradition? I'm unsure of whether the irony or idiocy here is more noteworthy.

If your kid needs tutors to succeed in high school, he probably isn't going to make it at Michigan anyway. Aim lower.

How perfectly convenient that you all feel this way about the guys who chose other schools. I'm quite sure that if they had gone blue, you would have been upset about their inclusion in our program, because they are such awful headaches.

Mock drafts tend to be a lagging indicator. Expect to see his stock drop in the coming weeks. Now, he may still get a 1st round grade (in which case he should jump), but I wouldn't make any conclusions based on what you're seeing now.

Both of those teams have worn alternate uniforms.

This will end well.

And that was BS. The deal was agreed upon...it was even the front page headline in The Daily. Then Bo used his influence to scuttle the deal because no basketball coach is going to make double what the football coach makes here.

It's Scut Farcus, not Scott Farkus.

Not to belabor a dumb point...but Brandon was the one who started that campaign. It was announced months before he stepped down as CEO, and the planning (and overhaul of the pizza) was done during his tenure.
There are a like eleventy billion reasons to criticize Brandon. This isn't really one of them.

Good enough to win comfortably, bad enough to keep the teeth gnashing.

The loss couldn't have been worse. But this game isn't that loss. Stop calling this one The Horror II.

You fail at both analogies and finding relevant information to back up your points.

This is literally the stupidest thing anyone has ever complained about in any medium at any point of human history. Debating over whether an even is muppet-worthy makes me embarrassed to be affiliated with you people in any way, shape, or form.

All of you people who think that, in a world of strictly ala carte pricing, you could dump everything but sports and stream the rest somewhere else are living in a fantasy world.

The idea of an "anti-Michigan bias" is so homeriffically laughable as to be straight ridiculous.
|50 weeks 4 days ago||The line was comprised of 2||
The line was comprised of 2 NFL draf picks and a whole pile of highly recruited guys. If we roll those guys out there and produce a MAC-caliber performance, then there is a huge problem. Youth may mean that we shouldn't have had an absolutely dominant line, but it doesn't excuse the level of play that we saw.
As for blaming the players..."execute better" explicitly means that the plan was fine but the players weren't making it happen. So, either they were capable of executing and didn't do it (which is blaming the players) or they were incapable of executing (which means they aren't being developed well). Either way, it falls right in with what Urban said.
Meyer is a buttplug, no doubt. But getting all up in arms because he pointed out that we have tons of talent to go with a 7-6 record is item #13,345,421 on the list of reasons that he is a pile.
|1 year 6 days ago||Just a Suggestion||
Many of us don't follow recruiting that closely, but are still interested in these posts. It would be helpful to include even a single line explaining who the kid is. For instance:
"Darrin Kirkland Jr. (LB - Indianapolis, IN, 2015) has been a frequent visitor to Ann Arbor..."

"Irvin and Walton are the first top-50 recruits John Beilein has ever had"
You mean other than McGary and GRIII?

I don't see any detriment to it either.

He can barely play high school ball, he isn't going to play here. I am sure that he'll be involved in the program, but it'll almost certainly involve wearing a suit.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||His story is amazing and I'm||
His story is amazing and I'm glad that UM honored the offer. But expecting him to play is a huuuuuuuuuuuge stretch. Let's be honest...he played in 4 games this year and scored a total of 6 points. He's going to come here and wind up on a medical scholarship quickly.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Players have until today to||
Players have until today to file for evaluation. They get the evals back by next Monday. The committee takes into account everyone who has filed, as well as the actual graduating players.

OSCR dude says the process can take up to a semester. Gibbons is dumped a semester after the incident became much more public. True, we don't know to a 100% certainty how it unfolded, but an awful damn lot of you are sounding like JoPa supporters right now.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||The amount of homer whining||
The amount of homer whining here is ridiculous. If Woodley had made the exact same play, people here would be tattooing it on their chests. It was an awesome play, quit fucking whining.

As probably the only one here who was a Jazz fan an hour ago, I'm happy as a pig in shit right now.
