Hoke said that Miller is ahead of Glasgow at center based on performance and not as a result of the suspension.. Miller has outperformed Glasgow and that should be encouraging as Glasgow represented himself well last year.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Kalis||
Was the starter before getting hurt. When asked if the spot was Kalis before the injury, Hoke said "no question."
|5 days 12 hours ago||It's reassuring||
Just hearing that progress is being made in terms of determining who will play. Many including myself just want to get some stability so the guys can get reps together and build cohesion. As you say, it is funny to think a Freshman LT could be calming though.

I'm now feeling really good about his ability to handle LT. All of spring and to this point in fall camp he is clearly holding up and proving he can handle it. With this development it's a huge benefit to be able to move Mags (Best lineman) to the inside. Maybe it's unwarranted but I am more optimistic now than I have been since before last season.

Appreciate the OP. It brought me previously unknown information about Michigan basketball which I am passionate about.
|1 week 2 days ago||Not true||
Michigan has rotated more than any team I have watched the last few years. It has resulted in numerous instances where we cannot get the defense set before the snap. Of course everyone rotates but it's been excessive at Michigan. Running 300 pound lineman back and forth can take a toll if not done efficiently.
|1 week 2 days ago||The amount||
Has been excessive at Michigan, paticularly on the line. Even Mattison mentioned it at one point.
|1 week 2 days ago||Seriously||
You lectured the guy above for having an opinion based on little facts. Wow
|1 week 2 days ago||Don't think you understand the MSU position||
It's basically exactly what you are saying here, that stars are over-rated.
|1 week 2 days ago||Why add the last sentence?||
It's basically accusing the poster you are responding to of something you have no idea is true. Why do that, it almost makes it personal.
|1 week 3 days ago||Competition is good||
But you lost me at Miller. He has been overwhelmed when given playing time, and I would be concerned if he is competing for a starting spot.
|1 week 3 days ago||This nails it||
The staff has not earned the benefit of the doubt with some of the blunders you mentioned and that's why there is panic. I think or at least hope the staff is going to redeem themselves. That's just me though as I must admit I'm still wondering how LC and staff thought Underwood should start over Hart.

Less than 3 weeks doesn't seem like long. Hopefully they can get the starters identified soon and give them ownership of the line.
|1 week 4 days ago||Read the tweet again||
That's not what it says.
|1 week 4 days ago||It's understood that this was for TODAY||
But with so little time to prepare for the season I would think the practice time is invaluable and that they wouldn't have a lineup that had no chance at all of actually being the starting line. It appears there is not one single spot on the line that's assured.
|1 week 4 days ago||What is the issue?||
Michigan has possibly the most unattractive home schedule in school history and the most expensive student tickets in the conference. That's not spin, it's a fact.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||What does it matter?||
MSU's DB's are better than Michigan's and have been since Dantonio/Narduzzi arrival. The difference in mentality has allowed MSU to "bully" Michigan on the field for years now. It's time to develop a killer instinct and stop talking about inconsequential things like jersey numbers and ancient history.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Talking about jersey numbers||
Wonder if Narduzzi's guys are talking about numbers? The mentality needs to change.

Has not even visited Michigan yet. To be in his top group without the benefit of having him on campus leads me to believe it is very possible he may commit once he visits. I believe he is scheduled to attend the PSU game.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Another issue||
Is including kickers in the ratings. Michigan's class is kick-ass even with the kicker dragging down the average but if kickers were removed for ALL teams, Michigan has the highest average rating in the country other than Bama. It's unbelievable how well the staff is recruiting.

He sucks at QB. If he plays QB for OSU then we should celebrate.

Probably wont be able to say that much longer.

Thanks for the laugh :)

With Weber visiting USC on the 23rd, it's been reported that he might not be able to attend the BBQ.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Are you trying to change the story||
To the conference was down? Or MSU had injuries? Sounds like someone is trying to explain away the fact that Michigan by all measures out performed expectation. When you dominate a conference in which no one expects you to win, that's exceeding expectations. A conference that happened to have 3 elite 8 teams and a final four squad. BTW Did you follow Michigan last season? If so, you should know what a huge blow losing Mcgary was. At that point, many if not most of the college basketball world questioned whether Michigan would even make the tournament. Do you remember that? There were threads on here if you need to refresh your memory. So yeah, going from expected borderline tourney team to dominating the conference.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Once again||
No one picked Michigan to win the conference. Can you comprehend that? Michigan won the conference easily, there is a difference in winning the conference and running away by 3 games. Can you comprehend that distinction? For you to continue to insist Michigan didn't out perform expectations last year is laughable. No one predicted Michigan to win the conference and they ended up 15-3. That is dominant if you didn't know, in fact the closest competition was Wisconsin and MSU at 12-6. Wisconsin ended up a final four squad, MSU an elite 8 and yet both squads lost TWICE as many games in conference as Michigan. Anyone that thinks Michigan didn't exceed expectation is in denial or something worse. Now lighten up Francis.

Hopefully he can still make it to the BBQ as he is visiting USC on the 23rd.

Banged Sarah Palin, therefore it's not OT.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||These are your words||
" However, MICHIGAN finished right where people predicted they would. MSU just struggled and finished just below Michigan". This statement is only true if "people" predicted Michigan would win the conference, which is not the case. No one predicted Michigan to win the conference. As far as MSU finishing "just below Michigan", that is a stretch at best since they finished 3 full games behind Michigan. There is NO ONE on this planet that thought MSU would lose TWICE as many conference games as Michigan. The bottom line is despite you trying to spin it, Beilein and Michigan significantly outperformed expectation last season and I expect more of the same this season.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Not what I said||
I didn't think Michigan would win the conference last year, but I fully expected a great season. Those are entirely different things.
