Nepotism screws over an NFL team that isn't the Lions.
|1 day 1 hour ago||I like the audible quotes||
One of the things that made Kovacs great was he not only go into position correctly, he got others into position as well. If Kinnel can be that QB of the defense, and get people into position, that would be awesome.
Plus, it sounds like is an athletic kid as well. "Not Peppers Athletic" is a very wide range of possibilities.

Ace can't get his analysis up this quick.

is Sione Houma, for no rationale beyond I liked his recruiting film a long time ago. He will push Kerridge for playing time as both get used more.

In a suprise twist to Harbaugh MANBALL (Harball or ManBaugh?) will be the smallest guy on the field making splashes in a loaded backfield. A speedster that will hide behind the much improved line and burst through holes.

the VW "Drivers Wanted" slogan.
Not a car commercial, but I also enjoy the commercial where guys are protecting and washing a big baby that is supposed to represent their car. I know the feels there.

he also stuck on to finish with Hart, Henne, and Long. Really the athletic department should have had a succession plan for over a year. But Martin probably stayed on a year to long as well. As 3 and out stated, if he had left before the coaching hire, he could have gone down as another great Michigan AD. He made a great basketball hire, but should have left the football coaching hire for the next AD. He still was a great AD in my mind, just made a pretty big mistake in HOW the football coaching search went. Not necessarily with who he ended up with.
|1 week 2 hours ago||I think we disagreed during the||
RR and Hoke times, but I'm in total agreement with you on defending Carr. The stats you gave also coincides with one of the strongest eras in the BIG10 and included highly competitive non-conference schedules.
I think people forget how good the BIG was at the end of the 90s and first half of the 2000s. Outside of Indiana, all 11 teams had some fantastic runs and seasons.
|1 week 2 hours ago||This is well stated||
Lloyd Carr was the coach when my Michigan Football fandom blew up. I loved him as a coach. Yes he frustrated me in letting a few games go that he shouldn't have, but his winning and way of winning were both top notch.
I did dislike him in his associate AD role. Undermine or not, he was in a position where he had a chance to steady the waters and he didn't. There were a lot of things handled incorrectly during the last seven years, but the AD and football program seem to be in the right hands.
I have no ill wills towards Hoke, Brady, or Carr. It was a dark time in Michigan football, but I do believe they all had the best intentions and cared for the program. Although, at this point, an endorsement doesn't help the program much, it is still a great positive and much better than the alternative. Having a successful previous coach on board is always a good thing.
|1 week 1 day ago||Well||
I accepted a position when I was 28 that I decided not to take and backed out of. I felt bad, the money was good and the people were great, but I just didn't want to move to Houston. I understand that recruiting is a little different, with only a handful of spots, but it does happen in the adult world.
|1 week 1 day ago||Really?||
I'm just curious. All the games Hoke lost in 2012 (outside of Alabama), were pretty close games. A close loss to ND (undefeated until NCG), the South Carolina Game probably would have been a win if the DB (forget who) hadn't been suspended. Nebraska was a QB depth issue that was quickly solved. The last half against OSU was annoying, but it was still a close game.
I'm just suprised that anyone was ready to move on that quickly after 2011 and then 2012. I would never defend the 2013 and 2014 seasons though.
|1 week 1 day ago||It's tough to lose out to Izzo||
on recruiting trail, but it's hard to argue with his success, and I never feel like they pick up recruits over us through the shady aspects of the recruiting process. I still think that Michigan's offense alone would be a huge selling point alone over other programs, but I know there are thousands of reasons kids pick programs.
I'm hoping a stellar year with BIG title and deep run will ginite a couple more recruits to decide to go blue.
|1 week 1 day ago||My brothers and I watched this 100 times||
on our Beta. It's weird, but after a while, Daniel comes off as kind of a dick, and outside of Johnny, the Cobra Kai guys were kind of funny. I mean, the whole kicking his ass while he can barely stand up, and driving him off a cliff on his bike were bad, but Ali could have done much better (and turns out she did in number 2 movie).

They never seem to mind that OSU and Michigan split the profits evenly with all BIG members.

hand me down split color Raiders shorts like the kid in the bottom left of the 1991 photo, when I was in 5th grade.
And boy did I think Sweatpants were awesome as a kid.

Not sure I would qualify him a bust. Slocum and Grady fit.
|1 week 6 days ago||Uh||
Tressel looked the other way when his players sold their own stuff for tattoos and got some extra benefits. These are not amoral things, as many fans believe that college players should get paid more or be able to get benefits.
Joe Pa looked the other way on a definite, no way is there any moral ground to stand on, situation so his program wouldn't be negatively affected.
I love me some Buckeye he cheated stories as much as the next guy, but these situations are not comparible.
|1 week 6 days ago||Correction: just to be fair||
So the two "sides" would be those in support of people who knowningly protect and enable serial pedophiles, but win a lot of football games the "right way" and those that dont?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Reporter: Mark Dantonio was talking about you earlier||
Harbaugh: (Looks confused and shakes his head)
Reporter: He's a football coach
Harbaugh: (again nothing from Harbaugh)
Reporter: He's a big deal here in East Lansing
Harbaugh: (Harbaugh nods, asks what they discussed and quickly moves on to something else)

I tried looking it up, but for some reason I remember Henson starting the second and third quarter and Brady coming in either late 3rd or 4th, where he threw for over 200 yards in the 4th quarter. I just remember being impressed with Brady and frustrated he wasn't inserted earlier.
Also agree, Henson never started over Brady.
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||Better Sport||
I really believe he would have been something special. I always though Brady would do well in the NFL in the type of Kramer role, where he was consistent, and wouldn't lose you games. Was really suprised he is as good as he is. On the other hand, Henson was amazing. He definitely wasn't the better QB than Brady when they split time, but when he stepped in as a junior, he was lights out amazing.
His game against Drew Breese (sp?) was an amazing specticle of QB talent where Henson came out on top. I didn't realize he played summer ball on top of his QB duties. If he had focused full time on football, he probably would still be playing in the NFL. It's hard to turn down gauranteed money though. He had I think $4 million in just a signing bonus, and I'm guessing he never expected to not make it in baseball.

Has been an excellent resource for me to see where I am and help negotiate with my past employers. It can be very hard to judge where you are without knowing where everyone else is.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||There are some top paying lawfirms||
in Detroit. I know two people who worked for a Detroit Law firm right out of Michigan Law where the base pay was around $150,000 and salaries rose quickly from there. This was before the bottom fell out, but I'm guessing top law firms still pay top dollar. Could be wrong though.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Another Positive Camp Story||
Seems like there are a ton of good reasons for these camps. And Harbaugh taking overlooked prospects seems like a big one. One of the big arguments from the SEC is that Michigan could steal top prospects. Seems like it is a hard argument if he is also picking up talent that was overlooked by the Southern Schools.
I'm actually suprised that Harbaugh isn't given the benefit of the doubt when evaluating talent. He and most of his staff spent a lot of time succesfully in the NFL, in which they had to evaluate talent. I have a hard time believing they are the type that would settle with anyone.
I'm looking forward to adding more speed to the field.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Found it ironic that article mentions||
"it's (Toys R Us) beset with the same challenges all big-box retailers face in the Internet age: customers with choices."
And they hired Dave Brandon who, during his time at Michigan, lost out a huge contingent of customers to other choices (staying home and watching the game).
