And so is Glasgow apparently? Isn't that him in the background of the Mone tweet?

That's weird. I feel like a parent should be able to talk about their kid freely.

Aren't things like her tweeting about Lyons not a violation because of the preexisting relationship?

Get the surgery. Honestly, he's got a ton of experience, he doesn't need the spring/summer as much as a lot of players. Get the surgery, get things fixed for now and in the future.

I don't believe Lyons is even on the Stanford team anymore. I don't believe he's practicing withy the team this spring. Just finishing studies to graduate.

Good lord they have a lot of experience. Like three 5th year seniors on the DL alone? Both MSU basketball and football are seemingly great at getting/developing very good to great players, but keeping them because they aren't so great they leave the program early. That's been the key to their sustained success.

Guh. Man, is ever going to be able to see the field?. That's like 3 hamstring tears in like the last three years. Damn, his potential was so high.

I think the secondary is going to be good this year. Also expecting big things from the DL.

Same here. In the Sam Webb/Marcus Ray mock spring draft, Morris was the first QB off the board and Speight last.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Won't come anywhere near the||
Won't come anywhere near the largest in history. Until UM starts pushing the spring game back in April for better weather and/or start really making the fans feel like the program wants them there, it will remain low. This will probably be better than Hoke's spring turn-outs though.
|3 days 4 hours ago||By your definition, there's||
By your definition, there's no such thing as a good or bad deal. If I found a sucker to buy my blender for $1 million dollars it doesn't mean that it's actually worth it. It just means there's stupid people out there. In that case, what's really worth 1 million is my ability to identify and rope in suckers, not the blender. Was Dave Brandon worth the almost a million he got. I would say his ability to foster personal loyalty was worth that much, but he was worth far less to actual doing his job.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Do you think Hoke was worth||
Do you think Hoke was worth what he was paid? I certainly don't. I think Harbaugh is probably worth more than he is paid because he's so much better at his job than his peers. Just because management will pay a certain figure does not mean that employee is actually 'worth' that figure. Single stupid decisions don't determine actual worth; it just determines price.

I mean, maybe in some existential sense. But otherwise, totally worth all that money. Like literally, he makes more for the university than they pay him.

Meh. I feel like I appreciated Funchess' efforts on the football field exactly in line with how much was deserved. Also I don't think that sound bite was 'unfortunate'. I think it was exactly what encapsulated the Hoke era: a Freudean slip of truth while trying to stonewall actual introspection into the program. However, I don't blame Funchess for that, but rather the head man in charge.

Well with the depth at the 4-5, taking a project, redshirting him and then seeing what you get in 3 years isn't a terrible idea.

No, Harbaugh just had the 5-star blinders on in that case.

Yes, plugging your ears and going "lalalalaicanthearyou" about info that goes against your seemingly preconceived notions that Malzone has this thing locked up really seems like a winning strategy. What do you have against Morris? Because your posts regarding him far surpass simple doubt and border on outright hope he fails. And you're digging that hole even more with such hard takes.

To me, Taco is a 4-3 end and not a 3-4 end or OLB. Durkin has said they they will run what personnel dictates. So I think that if Taco is available, we may see more 4-3 if that allows the the best use of personnel.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Personally, I'm||
Personally, I'm disappointed. I liked it. I liked that it was unique to UM. I liked that it solved the issue of retired numbers and the lack of new retired numbers. I liked having those great players honered.
But I hated the way they were used. I hated that they felt like they had to give them out every year. I hated the number switches. I just didn't like the execution of what I felt was a great idea. One of the few good ideas of Brandon I thought. I wish they would just come up with a better way to handle them. Personally, I just wish they either treated it like another number or kept it out of rotation except for rare instances when a player really wanted that number and could earn it.

Love the stickers, do not like discontinuing the legends jerseys. Execution of it was bad, but the idea of legends jerseys was unique and solved the problem of jerseys not being retired. Just fix the execution.

Sounds fine with me. I think the D just needed some tweaking and more practice against spread/tempo to put it from the 'good-very good' range to the 'elite' range. A little more age will help with the consistancy, but I don't think they needed any radical changes like after GERG. Really the problems with the D last year seemed more like a symptom of the whole team problems under Hoke: consistancy, gambles not working out, personnel identification issues, age, toughness. But all in all, the D was less prone to those than the offense or special teams.

0 - As in 'zero' freshman being forced into significant playing time due to lack of returning players.
8 - the number of players expected to return who saw more than 10 mintues a game. As opposed to the 4 players that returned for this season. This could be 9 if LeVert stays.
1-4: UM's record in OT this year. By my calculations, from the 2010-2011 seasons until this season, UM's OT record under Beilein has been 8-2. This is probably related to the previous stats listed
