"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

It's great to see players get excited for bowl games even when nothing is at stake. We as fans may be disappointed in the bowl destination but you bet UM's players will be up for it.

The students were great. Bigger student section than I expected given the holiday and the sub par year. Lots of credit to the students for being loud. Those who sold their tickets on stub hub and gave up on this team.....don't even want to talk about it.

Short, quick passes. Run some hurry up. And don't run the option with the fullback as the pitch man!!!
|15 weeks 2 days ago||A little story||
I have faith in this staff (maybe except Borges) because of something I experienced years ago. I was an athletic trainer at a IAA school. We were two years removed from a senior laden conference championship team. All those players left and we were now a team with 54 true and redshirt freshmen. Our first staff meeting, the HC ended it by saying be patient and be prepared for a bad year. Just not going to be pretty. We ended up 2-9. Fast forward 3 years and those young guys matured and grew up to win the national championship.

3rd and 5 and run the option with the fullback as the pitch man. Sigh...... I am finally on the fire Borges side.

I purchased an 18.5 weber this winter. Love it! Highly recommend it. For great advice on grilling, smoking and all things BBQ go to amazingribs.com. It's run by a guy named Meathead. I find his recipes, tips and advice spot on. And if you have a question he's quick and friendly to respond.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||I've worked in orthopedics||
I've worked in orthopedics for 8 years and do my best to treat most problems conservatively. This is one where I feel surgery is the best option. Minimal risk, quick recovery, predictable outcomes. You can try anti-inflammatories and/or injection but these probably work 10% of the time. Best of luck!

Thank you for sharing your story. God bless your son, your family and all the wishes for a healthy young Wolverine!!

I lost my dog and best friend back in February after a post op infection became very bad. We were pals for 11 years. I will keep you and wife and dog in my thoughts tonight. Best of luck!

I will continue to support Michigan football. I will watch every week, cheer enthusiastically, rejoice with wins and feel bummed after a loss. And after the loss, I'll look forward to next week. It's what I am. A Michigan alum, Michigan fan.

Spoken like someone who understands the spirit of college athletics. Nice job out of you.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Nice comments from RR||
Give RR some credit for being classy here. This isn't article about Michigan or his thoughts on the program, but its about his thoughts on a charismatic young man and terrifc athlete we have all had the pleasure watching over the last couple years. There probably is great respect both ways.

He came back after a few plays. They were just doing direct snap to whoever they put in.

|1 year 19 weeks ago||Tough to treat||
I am former athletic trainer who used to work college football for 5 years. There isn't much to do other than keep asking the athlete if they're ready. Treating this type of problem on the sidelines is difficult. There isn't a quick fix. An injection can help but usually these are done with ultrasound guidance so as to take extreme care around the nerve. The nerve innervates the small muscles between the bones in the hand so this injury greatly affects grip. Unfortunately time is the best healer here and hopefully Denard is ready this weekend.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||1995 UM vs UVA||
After the dramatic win in the Pigskin Classic in '95, the students made attempts to rush the field. If I remember correctly, the police were a little harsh in their tatics to keep them off the field. Some even got arrested....a friend's brother had to go to court for it and pay a fine. They (the police and the Univeristy) received a lot of backlash from the Daily. Call it a PseudoRush.

Denard wasn't set to be a return man. He was in a position to block. Same as Wheatley. I concede if he were to return, could add a different look. But don't ask him to do something he isn't accustomed or built to do.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Not a good idea||
If Denard were to get injured (fingers crossed) on a typical offense play...... Well, that is football. But on special teams? That's just poor decision making. I remember Tyrone Wheatley being injured on punt return. Hurt his shoulder & wasn't the same the rest of the year.

I respect your right to voice an opinion but it's a deuchy one at best.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||You sir....||
Are a d-bag. Yes Denard was awful tonight. But geez give the young man some credit. He has won multiple games for Michigan. He stayed when he could have left. He has been an exemplary UM student athlete. Lighten up.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Get a grip||
It was a loss!! One loss!! Our program isn't going to be removed from the big 10, the stadium isn't being closed and guess what..... The sun still came up today over the Eastern sky.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Thank you. Someone with hope.||
Thank you. Someone with hope. We won't be playing anyone else near the caliber of talent the rest of the year.
