Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

I've heard the same, but they better hurry if they want him. If Miami has another down year, I could see them firing Golden and making a strong push for RichRod. He would kill it with the recruits he could pull in there.

You seem pretty certain about Dele, and are almost defensive when it comes to him. Is there any personal connection or inside knowledge with you in regards to his recruitment? If not, just wondering why you are so certain.
|15 weeks 19 hours ago||Medical||
This is essentailly what Austin Hatch received. You still receive all the benefits of an athletic scholarship, however you do not count agains the 85 scholarship limit. A lot of times these players will become Grad Assistants, but can't dress, practice, etc.
Pipkins has had an ACL injury, which still doesn't seem 100%, as well as arthritis in the knee as stated in the article. He also suffered a neck injury and has had several concussions. While it may not be the perfect reason for a medical, it isn't totally shady either. They can justify past injury concern here.

Skim milk? Are you calling Ruddock a candy ass? Jimmy better get that guy some whole milk!
|24 weeks 4 days ago||710 is oil||
710 is vaping marijuana oil. Flip 710 and it is OIL. Used in vaporizers.

Austin's high school is Onsted.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Reasonable Doubt||
They were simply going for the reasonable doubt defense. There was no murder weapon and no witnesses, so they were just trying to establish that the prosecution hadn't met the burden of proof. Tried to use a bogus PCP rage claim for the other 2 guys he was with that night. The prosecution had a mountain of circumstantial evidence. Enough that the defense admitted Hernandez was at the murder scene in their closing arguments, but that he didn't do it.

|27 weeks 2 days ago||Injuries||
I'm guessing that Pipkins, Fox, Ross, Taco and others are left off due to injury? I hadn't heard of injuries to Ross, and also thought Pee Wee was playing this spring as well. Really surprised about Ross given Durkins recent praise of his spring in the recent interview. Any info on these guys or others left off the rosters?

He is a redshirt sophomore. In a healthy program, this is usually the time that OL start to emerge. Not everyone is like Cole and comes in and makes noise early in their career on the OL. I for one am happy that we will finally get to the point where we can play upperclassmen on the OL and not scramble to fill holes with young players who aren't ready.

Yes, Rashan Gary. #1 DT, #2 overall on 247 composite.

Still feel that Manning gets on the staff. I think either Fisch or Doughtery will get the last coaching spot for the offense, but not both.

Whoa Whoa Whoa!!! He has a title!

|39 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure that's accurate||
I don't think that is accurate. I have a picture with him from a game in 91 at the Big House. Still a long time ago, but it wasn't 87.

Pay sites were saying he was already in Schembechler working yesterday.
|42 weeks 3 days ago||Andy Moeller?||
Ummm...Andy Moeller was 1st team All Big Ten LB in 1986 and a co-captain of our 1987 Rose Bowl team. I think he has some Michigan ties. Oh yeah, and the fact his dad was the head coach and Andy was a OL coach for years in the early 00's.
|42 weeks 3 days ago||Surprised||
Not surprised about the money to compensate the move from the NFL back to college, but I would be surprised that a career OL coach would be given co-OC responsibilities when he has never served in that capacity. That would almost be as dumb as letting a career DL coach be a head coach, but UM wouldn't do anything that stupid.

|1 year 29 weeks ago||Like/don't like||
I like a bracket with Nova and Virginia as a 2 and 3, but I really don't like OK State as an 8.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Practice||
Pretty sure there is a practice today, so I am sure they will be in attendance for that. And always a good time to beat the buckeyes with recruits in town!
|1 year 32 weeks ago||DG||
Don't forget that DG will be extremely limited in spring practice as well. Good for young guys development, but not for a great 2014.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||OIHO||
Well, they should send him to the University of OIHO State University. Have her give Cardale Jones a call about how nobody is there to play school, just football.

Until you pin me, George, Festivus is not over!
|1 year 42 weeks ago||Haden @ USC||
Pretty sure I remember Pat Haden at USC saying he also watches film. I know USC is no Michigan to many on this board, but I am sure plenty of ADs with football backgrounds do this as well.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Visits||
Which schools has he visited? I thought only UM, MSU and OSU. It looks like he is visiting bama this weekend and Florida the next. Has he visited FSU or LSU yet? The Army bowl is January 4th, and I can't see him committing to a school he hasn't visited
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Tirico||
Tirico would also still be doing MNF, college bball, NBA, Golf as well as some tennis and ESPN personality show fill-ins. I am sure 13-14 saturdays wouldn't be too much or too little for him, especailly since 7-8 would be spent in his hometown.

Honestly, I think this is a reflection of a Hoke coached team. He prides himself to staying even keeled during games, never too high or too low. Honestly, I think this hurts a team like this. Sometimes a coach just needs to lose it and light a fire under his team's asses. Hoke won't do that. It is always the same rah rah, it's ok bs. Even his press conferences are terrible. "We had a good week in practice and I need to coach better." Get pissed! Show everyone that this won't continue. Stop playing players that aren't performing just because they are a senior, or a leader, or becasue they have experience (looking at you Fitz). Would a guy like Saban or Belichek do this? Hell no! You fumble, you sit the bench. You continue to fail at picking up pass protection, you sit the bench. You can't hit the hole without dancing around in the backfield, you sit the bench. Send a clear message that mediocrity won't stand. Otherwise, your players will mimic you and always play to the "Ho hum, it's ok. Good try" mentality that their coach displays. He reminds me of Carr, but even Carr would lose his shit from time to time on the sidelines. If he doesn't begin to show more intensity, I can't see his team doing it either.
