Most college track teams have camps. Generally it will cost $ for them to go but its well worth the exposure. Beyond that I hate to promote AAU anything but it is a good way to get your really great athletes on a national stage.

rename it the Austin Jackson/Brett Gardner league

I played RB/LB in high school. Had 1500 yds and 27 TDs in 7 games as a senior in 2000. As a white RB, I did what most white RBs (not named McGuffie or Shallman) do and took a football scholarship to play defense at a small 1AA college. Played all four years in college, started 3, moved from starting FS as a Soph to starting SS as a Junior and starting OLB as a senior. I graduated and was a Graduate Assistant for one year. I followed that up by working on films doing sports stunts and choreography (We Are Marshall, Leatherheads). Eventually found my way back to coaching and took a DC job at a high school in Georgia, where I've been for the past 3 years. Currently working on my Masters.

is another Pouncey-like recruitment. Meyer told him to say he was a life long FSU fan to look like a big win for UF. With his best friend and godfather's son committed to Ohio, I really hope this all isn't a ploy for Meyer to make a recruiting statement. Too many things are going well right now. I'm officially in Paranoid Lloyd mode.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||was Charlie Strong his recruiter?||
i'm pretty sure Denard was recruited as a DB at Florida. this would leave room to assume that someone other than urban was recruiting him. its safe to assume that urban was much more involved in the recruitment of QBs. After seeing the recent recruiting success of Charlie Strong at Louisville(of all places) it leaves me to wonder.

the title of the book?

Saban is to defense as Rodriguez/Meyer are to offense. I have friends throughout the college coaching ranks that all study his philosophies. Most, if not all, have something in their gameplans that is Sabanesque. Any amount of time picking Saban's brain is time well spent. As a defensive coordinator myself, I would kill to be a fly on the wall of that film room. Mattison/Saban = the Aristotle/Plato for meatheads.

But of the 6 recent choices I will rank them:
3. Orange and White Housecat (if he graduated from Michigan)
5. Orange and White Housecat (if he is a she, has been spayed, didn't go to UM and while I'm at it let's throw in some rabies)
6. Les Miles

*sigh* Twitter makes my head asplode. More rumor mongering. Not sure what to think.

|4 years 46 weeks ago||Les Miles is the laughing||
Les Miles is the laughing stock of the SEC. He took over a team once removed from a national championship (and loaded from freshmen to senior class with top tier talent). This is not the move to unite the fanbase. We are just adding gas to the "Michigan Man" fire. Coaches who don't have the right lineage are going to be afraid to come here from this point forward. Fans who didn't graduate from Michigan are going to do the same. For a former CEO this sure doesn't seem like a hire to help our national brand. All that to say I would keep RR over Miles anyday.

the "who the hell is jim harbaugh" comment was a joke. Sorry for posting something worthy of being mgopoint raped.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||who in the hell...||
Who in the hell is Jim Harbaugh???
|4 years 50 weeks ago||is Urban Meyer...||
...the Brett Favre of coaches?
|5 years 8 weeks ago||how about former recruits on the roster?||
Looks like UNC is all but guaranteed the hammer. When it comes down do we have any shot at Mywan Jackson?
|5 years 13 weeks ago||How about DB getting back at me||
I was shocked to see that DB answered this email personally. Just another reason I'm going to cast all my fears aside and be All in for Michigan and DB.
Please don't take THE GAME
That game is why students attend Michigan. It is why elite football players travel north to play in the freezing cold rather than go to Miami or USC to soak up the rays. The last few years have been hard on everyone. Taking this away from us would break everyone's heart. I can't imagine a year without that game to look forward to. We could be 3-8 (wait we were 3-8) and I was waiting with baited breath for the kickoff of that game. I know some unfortunate intern or assistant will have the good pleasure of reading this and copying and pasting some uninformative and even less passionate response. I know that that intern will tell me about you and you're knowledge of Michigan football and The Game. I just can't see the logic. Probably money.
Re: Please don't take THE GAME
Thanks for helping me understand the importance of the Michigan – OSU game. I appreciate your thoughts on the topic….
I don’t do interns and I answer my own email. You were wrong about that….and you are wrong that the scheduling issues we are working through are about money. They are not. They are about the management of competition… and there are 12 different universities and their A.D.’s and Presidents joining up with a building full of conference officials – all of whom are looking to protect their own interests and needs as it relates to scheduling rivalries and games.
I suggest you just relax….students will continue to attend Michigan….try to be just a little optimistic….and see what we are able to work out.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Denard = Dilithium Powered Cover Corner||
Denard goes to corner and instantly becomes the fastest corner in the Big Ten. Now either Tate starts or they split reps and Denard plays both ways. I vote that Denard starts at QB and his dilithium powered dreads start at corner.
I began this post sarcastically but the more I think about it.....
Ya know with the progression of a quality backup in DG maybe just maybe....
Okay I'm officially grabbing at straws.

...but isn't that the school that let Tommy Lee in? For what it's worth, I'm actually a fan of the addition of Nebraska.

have been an ongoing episode of Lost. Losing is represented by the island and everytime it looks like we're about to get off they break my heart. Locke kills someone, Turner hits a 3, Linus lies again, Roundtree gets chased down from behind, Linus stabs Jacob in the heart, the Freep stabs Ann Arbor in the back. MAKE IT STOP!!!
