|1 week 20 hours ago||I got the distinct impression||
that it was not Michigan that lined Harbaugh up on every sports intervies program. I got the strong impression that he was there on behalf of the Colgate Save Water Program. It was mentioned during every interview - often out of the blue.
|1 week 2 days ago||What impressed me||
In his highlight films; he was a tight end, a slot receiver; and a wide receiver as well as a defensive end. He can be moved around. I wouldn't be surprised to see him at full back.
He is a real Harbaugh type of player.
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||I would like to see||
Rudock as a backup for Brady. I think they have very similar styles, skills and approach to the game.
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||Graham Glasgow||
was really moving people.He should be playing on Sundays this Fall.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||The best coach I have seen in my lifetime||
was Paul Brown. He was successful at OSU and then went on to build a power house with the Cleveland Browns (which is named after him.) When he was fired by the Browns,he established, and owned, the Cincinatti Bengals. I don't think any modern coach can match that record.

Donnie Corley after announcing for MSU gets asked how he will enjoy his next few years in Ann Arbor. I assume he will hate every game he plays in Ann Arbor.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||It's the Harbaugh legacy||
that is destroying Iowa. Our turn will come!
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Speaking of improvement||
Grant Perry looked like an entirely different player than the confused Freshman that we saw in the Utah game. I think he will be a star.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||When the announcers say,"That is not a dirty play."||
It almost allways is.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Boss has been spearing all year.||
This is the same kind of hit that injured Rudock's left arm. Crown of helmet to body.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Every other coach in the country rejoices.||
Now they have a great horror story to illustrate why their players should get a good night sleep instead of partying after curfew. Thank you Trevon Boykin for being an idiot.

|10 weeks 5 days ago||I'd like to review the Rudock injury.||
I am beginning to think that OSU has put a premium on knocking out quarterbacks. The hit looked like spearing to me. In the replay it looked like Rudock was hit with the crown of the helmet. Spearing has been illegal in the past and should be know as it is dangerous to both the player being hit and to the player doing the hitting.
It reminded me of the hit that put Mariotta out of the championship game last year. Mariota was lying on the ground when he was pancaked by OSU. In my book, both hits are dirty plays intended to knock out the QB from the game. I respect a hard hit but both hits go way beyond that.

that Rutger's most famous alumnus is the near sighted Mr. McGoo. You can't expect them to see anything.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Northern Ohio||
has always been divided between loyalty to Michigan and to Ohio State. I went to Akron Buchtel and we have had a number of players who played for Michigan. Michigan's academic reputation has been the major draw in the Akron - Cleveland area. In Northern Ohio, Michigan has a better over all reputation as an institution than the horse chestnuts. Be careful about putting down the whole state when there is a lot of goodwill in Ohio for The University of Michigan.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||A thought for OSU||
"Whinning isn't the only thing! It is every thing!" Go Blue!
|12 weeks 4 days ago||The major problem||
I have seen this year, is that when targeting is reversed; no penalty at all is given. The targeting call on the punt in the Minnesota game was an obvious block in the back. Instead of us getting the benefit of a 15 yard penalty, Minnesota got a 65 yard play as a direct result of the block in the back. That is an 80 yard swing on a bad call and led to a score.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||What about the helmet||
with all of the marijuana stickers on it. Are they keeping track of hits?
|14 weeks 14 hours ago||I think I get it.||
If you send a tight end out as a wide receiver you are guilty of deceiving the other team - unless you are not Michigan. The other Big 10 rule is: If you are Michigan, we have to pick up any targeting flags - and forget about any other penalty that should have been called on that play - such as roughing the quarter back or a block in the back.
|14 weeks 14 hours ago||I didn't object to them picking up the flag on the targeting cal||
but it was an obvious block in the back. I think B1G referees feel that if it isn't targeting; it isn't a penalty - even if it is. That was a 60 yard mistake worth 3 points for Rutgers. A similar thing happened in the Northwestern game with the reversal of the targeting on Rudock.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||The best thing about Speight||
He did not stare down his receivers which is a problem with both Ruddock and Morris. I think he could be a very good QB with some mileage.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Jimmy Johnson to Miami.||
He can use it as a stepping stone to be coach of the Cowboys!
|17 weeks 2 days ago||I think||
this comment was made by either the current or former coach at Auburn.
|18 weeks 16 hours ago||He took us from down to up||
And Durkin has taken us from up to upper.
|24 weeks 1 day ago||I'm opposed to sharing the 49ers dirty laundry on this blog.||
I think this topic really smells!!!
|33 weeks 4 days ago||This is an ESPN created controversy.||
I may be a Bills fan, but I think this is the silliest controversy in the history of the NFL. Bill Nye to the contrary; the footballs were within the bell curve of inflation given changes in temperature from the locker room to the field and back.This also does not deal with what happens to balls when 300 pound players are landing on them. I would feel better about this whole tempest in a teapot if we had a consistent enforcement of the rule so that there is a baseline of field tested data. This has nothing to do with the integrity of the game and everything to do with ESPN keeping ratings during a dry period of football news.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||The place where LeBron is better than Michael Jordan||
is that he considers an assist as more important than a basket. He is a team player. When I compare him to players of the past, I see him as more of a Magic Johnson style player than a MJ style player and that is a compliment. Kobe Bryant is the Michael Johnson clone of this generation (and that is not a complement). By the way, I think Tim Duncan is the most under rated player of our time just because he played for a great team in a small market. In fact, I would rate Tim Duncan above MJ as a player that makes a difference in bringing championships to a team. I never saw MJ as the team player that both LeBron and Duncan are.
We Akronites were always proud of LeBron and don't care what Cleveland thought. We are always proud of LeBron (and Curry too!)

I miss the rest of his family. It was the best show since the Gait brothers of Syracuse.
