Is Cole for sure staying at LT considering his height? I know he played exceptionally there last season considering he was a true freshman and undersized, but if Newsome or LTT really come on next year, the best line may have Cole on the interior with more tackle sized players outside.
|3 days 4 hours ago||My reading of the situation||
My reading of the situation is the kid went and tried to hide it. He didn't tell the coaches he was going and told reporters not to let the info out. Similar to Pharaoh Brown visiting Oregon a few years ago without telling Hoke. I see nothing wrong with pulling a scholarship because of that, the commitment is a 2 way street.
|1 week 4 days ago||Not sure why he couldn't stay||
Not sure why he couldn't stay on to graduate from Michigan then do the 5th year transfer without sitting out. Get the Michigan degree and another year of football if he thinks he's healthy enough.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||I think it's an 11 year deal||
I think it's an 11 year deal with a 4 year option Michigan can exercise if they like. I've seen the 4 year option in a couple places and it seems that's the only way the 169 number makes sense when it's about 10 million per year.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||For anyone who wants to make||
For anyone who wants to make the best burger you've ever had at home, I suggest trying out a sous vide burger. Great guide on how to make it here and you don't need any special equipment to make it. Just a cooler, a zip lock bag, a thermometer and a really hot surface to sear it on(like a cast iron pan). You get a burger cooked all the way through exactly the temp you want it, a nice charred outside, and it's easy to make a lot the same temp without over cooking or constantly watching the grill.

Because it's not that good? Sure their burgers are greasy but the just don't have much flavor.

One of my favorite lines from The Wire, and very true.

Looks like you may be right.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||What has Morris done to even||
What has Morris done to even earn being called an okay QB? For someone whose biggest asset is his arm, any time he has tried to throw more than 10 yards down field the pass is either an interception or nearly an interception.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||The rule that doesn't exist?||
The rule that doesn't exist? It isn't actually a rule, similar to the idea of not ending a sentence with a preposition.
The would of, could of, should of crap is really annoying, completely incorrect, and immediately makes me think of the writer as uneducated.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||After the word "would", using||
After the word "would", using "of" makes no sense. And what I don't get about Cook being projected as a 1st round pick is the fact that he has a 58% completion percentage, which definitely won't cut it in the NFL. I don't see how he's NFL starter material, at least not for a few years which would make him at 2nd or 3rd round pick up.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Not saying it will happen,||
Not saying it will happen, but Harbaugh has shown a willingness to switch QBs midseason and if he feels they provide an equal chance to win this year, he could switch Ruddock for Gentry or Morris.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||So how long until the||
So how long until the boosters get to this guy and pay hush money?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I'm hoping the biggest||
I'm hoping the biggest improvement is the OL for Rudock. Iowa's OL was not good, if Drevno can get them to be above average the YPA should go up without any improvement from Rudock.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I don't think it will be||
I don't think it will be losing, but just look at SF where Smith was doing fine and he gets replaced by Kaepernick after going down with an injury for a game. Not saying it's going to happen, just that I wouldn't be surprised if someone overtakes Rudock during the season and starts. Unlikely for MSU, but the next few games would be a great time to get a new QB good experience. Ruddock can't be the future since he's only got a year, so if someone else is equal to him, it makes more sense to start them.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||The OL at Iowa was bad,||
The OL at Iowa was bad, similar to 2013 Michigan with 2 NFL players and others not very good at all. Which makes it all the more impressive.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Could definitely see him||
Could definitely see him losing the job midyear if Harbaugh thinks Gentry or Morris is the future.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||The drop in INTs from 13 to 5||
The drop in INTs from 13 to 5 is a really nice improvement. He won't be a QB picking apart defenses and winning games on his own, but he should take care of the ball, and be as good as the OL and running game allows him to be. My biggest concern on offense is the WRs without any real threats.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||The Xavier Kelly recruitment||
The Xavier Kelly recruitment seems wierd. The three schools with crystal balls, Nebraska, MSU, and Oklahoma were all left off his top 8. Then since he released that list every pick has been Alabama. Is there actually news that he favors Alabama or is everyone just picking them because they are a good bet after suddenly showing up on the top 8?

That's my hope for him, a Stevie Brown type role.

Any reason her sister didn't follow her to Michigan?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Interesting, I thought MSU||
Interesting, I thought MSU and Nebraska were the major competition and they aren't on there. Unfortunately he just got a ton of people picking Alabama for him on 247 so that doesn't bode well.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Every major newspaper puts||
Every major newspaper puts unflattering stories below the fold or buried a few pages in. And it wouldn't be the first time that this blog has bumped an unpleasant story down with pictures of Denard or something.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Because the 247 composite||
Because the 247 composite rankings basically do all that, so it's repetetive. The major feature was averaging out all the sites to find a composite ranking instead of having to look at rivals, espn, scout, and 247. Might be nice to have a simpler version that just lists the recruits brought in from around the conference, kind of a B1G recruiting roundup once a month or so.

Our alumni do have more money, they also have better things to do with their lives than slip Benjamins to 19 year olds for playing football.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||He's saying we heard the same||
He's saying we heard the same about Auburn as Michigan, not as OSU.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||The scary lack of speed on||
The scary lack of speed on offense makes me hope we see some of our secondary players deployed as WRs on a few plays a game.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Realize that a lot of coaches||
Realize that a lot of coaches when they meet their wives are not raking in 6 figures. In their 20s, these guys are QC coaches or grad assistants. Or they are coaching at the HS level. They are lucky to be making 75k at that point. It's not until they reach the position coach at a power 5 school level that they break into 6 figures.

Isn't that the same thing Harbaugh is doing?

You can downvote to cancel out the upvote, I deserve it for the ugly formatting. It looked fine in preview then didn't work at all.
