to play football, not to play trumpet

Kareem Walker is already enrolled, so the staff should have a pretty good idea what to expect out him by the end of spring practice. Hopefully they like what they see enough to have the difficult conversation with Smith about "hybrid roles."

Don't offer him, I say. If we offer him, then we are just like any other school--he knows he can play for us any time he wants. I say don't offer him a scholarship, don't call him on the phone, act like he doesn't even exist. Let him long for that Michigan offer, let him crave it, obsess about it.
Then, maybe around signing day next year, maybe we let him know there might be an extra spot in the class if he, you know, and might be interested and isn't doing anything else that weekend.

Don't worry, Bigasshamm. I am sure your eyebrows will come in by the time you reach 3 months.

They had true freshmen at QB and RB last season. Now those guys will be sophomores, and they have a very good defense. I do agree that top-10 seems like a stretch though, but they should be comfortably inside the top-25.

Sports announcers are like referees--if they do a good job, nobody really notices them but if they screw up, everybody does. Broadcast enough games and you'll ensure you're despised by most fanbases. Every now and then there is a Keith Jackson or Gus Johnson who everybody loves. But for the most part it seems like a thankless job.

These announcers are brutal. I wasn't going to say anything until the color guy suggested Wayne Fontes was just as bad a coach as Marty Morninwheg. That's indefensible.
|2 days 6 hours ago||I don't know. Maybe he was||
I don't know. Maybe he was nervous about playing in front of 110,000 people. Maybe he was just afraid of screwing up. Maybe he wasn't even panicked--it's just what it looked like when the guy Is tripping over his own feet and displaying no patience whatsoever.

Higdon last season looked like a panicked freshman. I'd like to see what he can do as a calmer, more confident player.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Yeah, losing Cole really||
Yeah, losing Cole really makes things dicey beyond the starters. I wouldn't be surprised if Watson winds up at safety. Jeremy Clark could move back, but that would be a shame as he seems to have really found a home at boundary corner. But as you said, we really need to get Kinnel and the true freshmen ready in a hurry and they are absolutely going to have to pan out.

Although I personally support marijuana legalization, I do acknowledge that there are valid counterarguments.

At FB I might have gone with Che Foster or Sione Houma. And maybe Earnest Shazor at safety.

Should help us sign Pebbles.

Winovich was a TE last season and has not been reported to have moved back. I think he will, but that's just speculation.

I sincerely hope you posted this from a tropical island and had to shake the sand out of your keyboard when finished.

That's interesting, I hadn't heard that.
Based on his profile I was thinking he might play SLB in a 4-3 Under system, kind of like Jake Ryan in 2011 and 2012. Of course, Ryan later moved to MLB and was effective there as well, so either option would make sense to me.

Listen all y'all it's subterfuge.

NT: Glasgow, Mone
3T: Hurst, Gary
SDE: Wormley, Johnson or Godin
WDE: Charlton, Marshall or Kemp
I think Dwumfour redshirts for sure, and probably Kemp.

How does it reflect poorly on Gary? He obviously turned down whatever "incentives" he may have been offered.

I'm picturing Sergeant Hartman yelling "let me see your football face!!"

Any man caught playing grab-ass spends a night in the box.
|4 days 7 hours ago||I went back and counted 24||
I went back and counted 24 board topics within the last 30 days, and 11 diaries within the last 3 months for alum96. That's some impressive dedication and hard work. Bravo.
|4 days 7 hours ago||Yeah, I can't tell if that||
Yeah, I can't tell if that reply was serious. It kind of seems like it was--but the suggestion that you are "subterfug[ing] our own program" by not condemning Dantonio for this is pretty ridiculous. And by "subterfuge," the poster seemed to mean "undermine," which is not even close to what the word "subterfuge" means.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Good point. And the standard||
Good point. And the standard for discussing a player arrest on a message board should be even lower, like "reported by a credible media source."
|4 days 8 hours ago||The fact that this board is||
The fact that this board is not Robertson's jury is why we DON'T need to presume his innocence.

I think he just means that DPJ is the big-time 5-star at the top of M's board who we need to get in order to feel satisfied with the class.

Sure. But it would be a little easier to beat them if they didn't sign the #1 recruiting class every year.

I have to imagine Relax Guy would be more entertaining than Discuss Man.
