I don't have any issue with this. Most recruits seem to like the idea of a "family culture" within a program, and Jim seems to really walk the walk. Who knows if Smith will end up coming here, but this leaves a good taste of Michigan football in his community. Jim isn't just a millionaire football coach, he is a well paid representative of the university.

So you're saying the outlook is Hayes-y?

The weather is beautiful out there, but I couldn't get over the haze. It wasn't a fair comparison though because I was living in rural Vermont at the time. There's nothing like taking a deep breath of that crisp, fresh air!

9) you won't get black lung from all the smog.

All great schools, so not going to go wrong either way. I think UofM is a huge asset to Michigan residents (look at what out-of-state students pay for the same degree). For the money, I would say Michigan...but obviously there are so many other factors like what he wants to study, does he want to be in a big city, is there a religious draw, etc. Congrats to him, and I wish him success.

Haha, this was the very first thing that popped in my head when I saw the picture. Gotta love some Will Ferrell SNL best of DVDs.

I would say going from very limited playing time to an NFL caliber RB is "blowing up", even factoring for level of competition.

I was in Stowe and there is really only one sports bar there. Generally on football Saturday's it was just me and the bartender hanging out, but she was cool and always had the volume queued up for the Michigan game for me.

Ha, if there's one thing I remember about living in VT, it is hard to get a snow day! Oh, and not much football talk other than the Patriots.

I think it was alum96 who did a nice little write up on him on this blog. That might tide you over for now.

I don't think it really has to do with honoring a scholarship. He has worked hard and received his four years of free education. Now it is just a matter of whether that will be extended for an additional year or not. There is nothing shady about that from what I understand.

Great attitude. You have to love the competition and comradery.

Sounds like Saban played hardball with this one. Too bad, I was hoping to renew some interest there.

I am pulling for great success for all of our players, and an excellent education for all who stay.
|1 week 1 day ago||I am definitely not saying||
I am definitely not saying that they should have to forfeit the game. I was only saying that they should have to pay whatever penalty is defined by the league's rule book, similar to how disciplinary actions are carried out in accordance to the employee handbook at my workplace. My point was that the NFL could avoid these types of controversies by being very clear about the rules and what the punishments offenders will face. Sorry that my comment about ambiguity was...ambiguous. (As far as textbooks, they are overrated :)
|1 week 1 day ago||It seems like the league||
It seems like the league should do a better job of defining the penalty for each rule broken. Everybody knows that holding is a ten yard penalty, so there is no arguing that outcome. If the rule book states that the penalty for improperly inflated balls is a forfeiture of the game, and a team does it anyway, then they have to accept that outcome. If the league does not define these types of things, it seems that they are inviting confusion and outrage at the ambiguity. For example, one of my colleagues is being terminated because she refused to get the flu shot (she leads a very holistic lifestyle). It may seem harsh, but that was the defined outcome in the employee handbook. I guess the question here is, does the NFL need to do a better job of explaining what penalties correspond to each rule? Thoughts from our HR contributers?

My guess is, if it's neck and neck, and he hasn't even visited UCLA yet, then they probably have an advantage here. But who knows, maybe he doesn't like sunshine or something. I hope he comes here because I think Harbaugh is going to be producing a lot of NFL caliber TEs.
