Agreed. He always looked like the bowling ball who could get you a solid few yards after contact, but his highlights rarely showed him outrunning guys down the sidelines.

Funchess looks like a young NFL wide receiver. He is going to do well at the next level.

Walk it off Peppers!!!! Please don't be hurt.

Fine by me.

It almost looks like a flesh light. I wonder if there was anybody tittering when the marketing team first introduced the idea.
Also, I agree with the above poster who says that talk is good, but Clark and co need to deliver. There is no way that we will make the playoffs this year, but getting back to our Sugar Bowl form would suit me just fine.

Just to clarify, Molk is not our starting center. That title belongs to Jason Kelce, who is one of the better centers in the NFL. If he makes our roster, it will be as the back-up center.

This has happened to me a couple times in Philadelphia where people will give a "Go Blue" as they walk by and it'll take me a few steps to realize (1) what they said and then (2) why they said it. Two days ago I was about eight steps beyond the guy when I turned around and shouted back.
In terms of etiquette, I think Go Blue is almost always appropriate. Who cares if you get a weird look? It's our (not-so) secret handshake.

How about we stop worrying so much about the uniforms? You know that the off-season has been going on too long when Michigan fashion is a trending topic on MGoBlog.

Somebody is feeling poetic tonight...
But +1 for the quotation. Beilein is great at working with the personnel he has, but give him something exceptional (ala Mitch McGary - f*ck you NCAA) and he'll spin gold.

Too old then.
DO. NOT. WANT.
Just kidding. Now I feel old...

A philosophical debate on a sports message board could ONLY happen with Michigan fans. And I mean that as a high compliment.

I am 26, a new UM fan, and I would DEFINITELY go if I was still in Ann Arbor. $20 is not a big investment, and it's one of those "go for the experience" kind of deals.
The Slippery Rock tradition is fun, and the crowd goes wild every time they show the score DESPITE the fact that half the people have no idea WHY we care about them (I only know because I did some Google searching).
Yes, it isn't going to be great football, but who cares? SRU only plays at the Big House once in a blue moon, and if the choice is between going to the game or sitting around catching up on your favorite new show on Netflix, I don't see why you wouldn't go.
Also, the idea that there won't be energy has got to be false. Everybody there will be rooting for Slippery Rock. They are America's favorite non-D1 team.

I would neg the OP, but I think we're already past the point of beating a dead horse.
Also, I need to save my neg points for the season in case we get trollers.

Why can't we all just get along???

Yeah, I would be VERY surprised if this was true. I think 247 made a boo-boo.
If you look at his timeline, he has never even visited USC and they don't actually show an offer from USC on his 247 page. And while the Crystal Ball is never the BEST indicator, it only shows B1G teams.

I love Draftageddon. I'm a late-comer to B1G football (East Coast kid who grew up on the NFL and only started following college football when I chose Michigan for law school), so Draftageddon provides an entertaining way of learning something about the rest of the B1G.
Also, the snark alone is worth the price of admission. And BiSB's meltdown following the Sean Davis pick was hilarious to say the least.
(I think I just heard BiSB scream "Kurtis Drummond" from afar, but it may have just been after-shocks from the epic fail that was Michigan's 2013 season)

Is it Timberwolf or Timberwolve? Honest question.
|12 weeks 5 hours ago||He gets an opportunity, and||
He gets an opportunity, and that's what matters.
JMo has always made the most of his opportunities. This MAY be a bridge too far, but if any undersized, less athletic center is capable of making the leap, then JMo is.
Worse comes to worse, he could probably play overseas. A high school classmate of mine who has a similar build as JMo (but likely with a lower basketball IQ) is currently playing pro overseas. Their standards are notably lower.
Either that, or JMo could use his Michigan engineering degree and make more money than most of the second rounders will make!

He will do well in OKC. They love running the floor and creating fast-paced offense, and that is exactly McGary's game. He will start off as a spark off the bench, but could easily become a starter with time.

Halftime and we are 0-0 with Portugal ahead by 1. This is not a bad situation at all.
This wet grass seems to be helping a lot. Let it rain!!!!

Here ya go...
A draw with Germany guarantees we are in.
A loss with a Portugal-Ghana draw, and we are in.
A loss with a Portugal win, and we are probably in.
A loss with a Ghana win, and things are a bit hairy, but we may still be in.

I love that Hatch is part of this group. He is going to be a great addition to the team, even if he never plays. He has overcome so much in life, and you can't help but be inspired by his story.
When the team is facing adversity, you just KNOW that Hatch will have something to say to get his teammates going.

Between Clark, Ty Isaac, and having our QB of 2016, I must say that I am feeling....what's the word.....I had it at the Sugar Bowl....it's so rare nowadays.....oh right, POSITIVE about Michigan football!!!

...and Beilein's MO of talking to different members of a student's community, including lesser appreciated workers like janitors and cafeteria workers.
That was how Bacari Alexander found out that McGary was a genuinely nice guy. Bacari talked to a groundskeeper at his school and got a story about a freshman bawling when the kid's mom dropped him off. McGary saw the kid, consoled him, and brought him into the school with McGary's friends. One of my favorite Michigan stories. (ESPN Insider - $)
