Couldn't it be said that the Smith pick looks like it worked. He seems like he will become a decent NHL defenseman now. Ouellet looks very good and impressed in his short stint with the big team. As for Sproul his numbers look like a very talented and could be a top 2 defenseman (6G, 12A +16 in 26 GP) very soon. So hiting on 3 defenseman who make the NHL isn't exactly struggling in the draft.

Were unable to use amnesty on Sammy last summer due to his "injury." Moving to the East I think they wrongly over valued Tootoo, and then must not have felt comfortable with Lashoff, Almquist, or Oulett to use the amnesty on Quincey. So if you are paying a guy $3mil per season and can't move him (Sammy) you handcuff any other moves to make.

Need to do more with the jersey... However, I am glad to see they actually have "Crimson" instead of the maroon they wore for awhile.
|1 week 3 days ago||Tie Game||
1-1 Copp with a goal
|1 week 3 days ago||Scouting Ferris State||
In Goal- Junior CJ Motte (brother of Tyler) 2.31 GAA and .925 save percentage. Is playing better lately after a slow start.
Scoring- Sophomore Matt Robertson has goals in 7 straight games. Senior Garrett Thompson leads the team with 20 pts. (9G, 11A). Although Ferris seems to have pretty balanced scoring with 9 players in double digit points through 17 games.
Defense- Senior Scott Czarnowczan (Captain) is an offensive puck moving defenseman who can score (4G, 10A). Junior Jason Binkley is a more physical defenseman who has 15 pts to go along with 31 PIMS.
Recently Ferris has been giving up a lot of shots, but not so much "quality scoring chances" it will be important Michigan gets into scoring areas and creates traffic to disrupt Motte.
EDIT: CJ Motte is Junior (corrected)

I think the question was a legitimate one. Especially with the two expeceted to battle for starting carries. Like was pointed out Smith broke a lot of tackles which may be needed again next year with a new LT and RT.

Gene Wojciechowski did a pretty good piece on Snyder, and his impact on K-State. I can't get the embed to work, so here is the link.
|1 week 6 days ago||Few Reasons...||
1. They won the conference, time to admit they were the best team in the conference this season.
2. It prevents Ohio State from being embarrassed in a national title game by 3-4 scores.
3. Gives the B1G a fighting chance to look good come bowl season.
4. If it wasn't Michigan in the B1G Champ game I would hope anyone but Ohio would win.

Dr. Hook would probably take out Braxton Miller with a high stick, then have Clarence "Screaming Bufflo" Swamptown scalp a few guys.
As for the media, I'd send Olgie Oglethorpe to the podium and see how things shake out.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Disagree||
What he was able to do with Joe Flacco (SuperBowl Champ) and now Zach Mettinberger, his ability to coach the QB position is far beyond mediocre.
|4 weeks 1 hour ago||Cam Cameron?||
Can I make a case for Cam Cameron? First fulfills the meaningless "Michigan Man" requirement the blue hairs require. Second, has shown his offense can translate from NFL to college this year at LSU. Third, has transformed Zach Mettinberger from inconsistant and inaccurate passer to one of best in SEC. Finally, he may be able to retain Mattison since they both coached together in 1992-93 at Michigan EDIT: and again from 2008-10 with the Ravens.

Agree to disagree. I think saying "execution" is all encompassing while saying that it's the "11 on the field" singles out the players and exonerates the coaches.

Urban is laughing because he knows he doesn't have to game plan on the defensive side of the ball.

Seems like he's ok throwing players under the bus...
Angelique- "Can you put your finger on what's the issue with the offense?"
Hoke- "I think it is a comination of all 11 guys out there. I think at times we hit on 11 cylinders, at imes it's 10, others it's 9. Seems to be rotating through"

It's more due to how he continues to throw players under the bus, while acting like the OC is doing his job perfectly. People say he can't call out Al, well why can he call out players then? If he's going to put it on the players, throw Al right in there with them.
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||He seems perfectly fine||
He seems perfectly fine calling out the players, so why stop there?
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||I've lost faith||
After this exchange I have changed my mind, don't think Hoke is the guy moving forward:
Angelique- "Can you put your finger on what's the issue with the offense?"
Hoke- "I think it is a comination of all11 guys out there. I think at times we hit on 11 cylinders, at imes it's 10, others it's 9. Seems to be rotating through"
NOT A SINGLE MENTION OF COACHING? If I was a player on the team I'd be pretty tired of being thrown under the bus just to protect the OC.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||Not same record||
Florida is 4-7

I'd say 2014 is Hoke make or break year. We all heard that 4 years is benchmark (insert RR sympathy here) and coming off potential 7-5 season and under .500 in conference record anything less than 9 wins and Hoke might be gone.

Here we come!!! I hope we don't get embarrassed next week but don't see any chance of that not happening.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Hashes||
The hash marks are a main issue. In the NFL it condenses the field and doesn't allow for a lot of runs to a massive open wide side of the field. It's one reason the read option struggles in NFL.

Wasn't Michigan MSU game at Spartan Stadium? Or did I miss something?
|5 weeks 3 hours ago||Snowflake...||
I think we are winning in spite of the offensive coaching staff. It seemed when Devin improvised, the team was most successful.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||UCLA OL||
So UCLA has 3 true freshman on the OL and their offense looks 1000x more prepared and multiple than ours. Can't be youth, Jim Mora staff is COACHING!

Think you really forget about De'Veon Smith. He will surely be in the mix as long as he's on campus.

Hey AL DAVIS, is that you risen from the grave?
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I'm Sorry||
Who were the big physical WR's last season that were breaking jam coverage? Don't think anyone would have called last years OL "rock solid" good yes, but far from great. Also have same running back (along with bigger back in Green) as last year.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Poorly worded||
Guess I worded it poorly. I would say 6-3 would be the "filler" teams. Like you said a complete division (32 teams) almost could have been eliminated by not using 5-4 teams.
Finally, good luck on your playoff run, small school playoffs are a lot of fun. D7 Espeically could be interesting with Harbor Beach moving from D8 (Defending State Champs) up to D7 this fall.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Div 9||
Division 9 is 8-man football. I can't exactly tell you when it started but it is for the uber small schools.
