I thought déjà vu. IBD too.

Hoke showed he couldn't do anything with two great classes. I think we are going to be pretty good moving forward.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Great post! Exactly why you||
Exactly why you will never see Tom Brady coaching. I think with Harbaugh growing up in a coaching family that it was more natural for him to continue as a coach.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Coach Gary Moeller never had||
Coach Gary Moeller never had a problem beating his old team when he coached us.
|5 weeks 2 hours ago||And if Countess and Morgan||
And if Countess and Morgan don't have injuries that led to redshirts we would be down to just two scholarship players from the RR/Hoke transition year. The injury to Morgan now seems like a blessing in disguise for LB depth this year.

Wasn't even interviewing for the head coach position anyways! Doh!
|5 weeks 22 hours ago||Kind of hard to accept the||
Kind of hard to accept the head coaching position at Oakland when Jim Harbaugh is already the coach there, correct?

Perhaps we should see what Greg Mattison has to say about your nephew's chances at going to U of M or not going?

Let me call him or text or tweet him and find out. /s
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I was at the game tonight,||
I was at the game tonight, and although there were some empty seats in the upper areas, the fans were really behind the team. With all the injuries it would be very easy to give up on this team so it's pretty cool to see the level of fan support behind the players.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Has there ever been a time||
Has there ever been a time when so many players are commited to another school come for official visits to Ann Arbor? More evidence that if Harbaugh has a great first season the recruits will be banging down the gates trying to get into Ann Arbor and Alabama type recruiting will be the norm (without the overrecruiting, greyshirts, medical hardships, etc.).
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I long ago gave up on||
I long ago gave up on realying upon the "Michigan was my favorite growing up" routine. Too many times I read this only to see somebody go elsewhere. To say that Michigan is your favorite and then go to Ohio State it comparable to saying you love Alabama and going to Auburn or that you love the Cowboys but every time there is a game on you show up in Redskins gear.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||#5||
With Justice Hayes moving on maybe he does take #5 next year.
As for the legacy numbers, give a current player a patch honoring the old player but they keep their existing #. If it is permissable by the NCAA maybe they can wear that number for only one game which I would assume to be homecoming.
Some legacy numbers have been great: Jake Ryan and Desmond Morgan being two examples. But others have been so-so. Realistically nobody is ever going to compare to Tom Harmon again so why put that kind of pressure on someone?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Sinatra, of course||
I think my avatar had a pretty amazing 1950's and 1960's and was still a major concert draw up until the early 90's (I saw him at a sold out Sports Arena in San Diego - from the front row once - twice in the 90's).
The great thing about Sinatra was that his career was much longer than most of the acts you listed (Elvis, dead at 42, Beatles around for 10 years, Kurt Cobain, dead at 27, Michael Jackson, dead just after 50, etc).
|5 weeks 5 days ago||All players||
I think all players at all positions need to up there game. Nothing can be taken for granted anymore.

Maybe he already committed and said "see you in June."
|6 weeks 17 hours ago||First thing I checked was to||
First thing I checked was to see if my old fraternity was on there - it wasn't. I see the hotels are doing their best to repair the damage and reopen the areas affected. I would imagine some parents will be getting extra bills in the near future to cover the cost. But like some of the posters above said, criminal charges do need to be filed.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I'm beginning to like this||
I'm beginning to like this Harbaugh guy as the coach. I was a bit worried to see Hoke go but it looks like we got a winner in Harbaugh.

Some nicely rated wines. Autographed from the winery are damn expensive.

I believe AJ Williams will be our last non-catching huge tight end for a long time. Didn't he come in weighing over 300 pounds?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||You are not very bright.||
You are not very bright. Anytime an American is involved in combat they are defending this country. Including the times when they are taking back land that was conquered by another country and then returning it to its people (i.e. Western Europe in World War 2). That you are able to speak/write freely is and has been earned by Americans who have served overseas and domestically.

Kyle was already in the SEALs for two years prior to 9/11.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||"protecting my kids"||
Basically having the guts to go to Iraq four times and defend out country. He totally understood what I meant and where I was coming from.

I prefer to park downtown and walk in and out although I can easily pay the rates all the way to the stadium. Especially since I like to have dinner afterwards downtown.

I am confident Harbaugh is going to close out this class strong but man Brady Hoke is going to go down in history with the greatest recruiting class in history that could have been.

Plus one for the Chairman of the Board. Saw him twice and the last time was in the front row.

Saw the Who in 1979 a couple of days after the stampede in Cincinnati. Not sure why my dad let me and my brother 17 and 16) and his friend drive 60 miles to that show let alone after the tragedy of people getting crushed. Festival seating!

Lagavulin is one of my favorites. Islay Scotch is the best.

Is it just me or does that sign have an air of "permanency" on the Hacket side of things? Hopefully so!
Best AD since Canham.
