"It was a privilege," Gardner said Monday night at the Ufer Quarterback Club Banquet in Ann Arbor. "I don't think people understand how much of a privilege it was to not only be a quarterback at Michigan, but just to be a part of this university whether you're a student-athlete or not," "And I knew that as a sophomore in high school. I knew this was a special place."

On the western part of the state winter came back Wednesday and Thursday with snow flurries all day Wednesday and parts of Thursday.

Sorry embed fail. Absolutely hilarious and don't play at work with speaker volume too high.
Downfall videos are pretty funny too.

USA Today just yesterday had him going in the first round to San Antonio so there was definite talk of him being a first rounder. Good for Caris and his confidence to do better next year and improve that draft position.

Some red wine from a friend's vineyard in Temecula, CA.

Or you can sue in civil court for financial damages ala OJ Simpson case who is still looking for the real killers (err, once he gets out jail that is).

What do you mean there was no punting in the spring game? Thought the whole purpose for the spring game was punting.

Did they go back to three rounds? I thought is was two.

This is just not university news. It has hit all the local news sources as well as national news as well. Most of the commenters have been very critical of U of M and their decision (which has been reversed by the way).
Harbaugh is to be greatly commended for his take no BS from anybody stance.

Hopefully we never see stadiums filled with red anymore for Ohio State games.

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.
|13 weeks 1 day 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.

Coach Gary Moeller never had a problem beating his old team when he coached us.
|13 weeks 4 days 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!
|13 weeks 5 days 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

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.
|14 weeks 1 day 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.).
|14 weeks 1 day 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.

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?
|14 weeks 3 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).
|14 weeks 3 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."
|14 weeks 5 days 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.

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.
