Apparently this guy (Derek Stevens) is a Michigan grad. Class of 1990
|5 days 8 hours ago||Different award||
He won two awards in one day. Gatorade Player of the Year in Michigan and Mr. Basketball. Post below was only for Gatorade as the Mr. Basketball wasn't announced yet.

No question. At the end of the year the basketball team hangs a banner. Football team took back Bunyan. Hoops team wins.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The design of the hat||
The design of the hat changes each year. The one Harbaugh is wearing is from 2015. Last year was similar to this year's but this year has the white mesh "truckers" style whereas last year was the cotton/wool all the way around. I work on the Wolverines in the D event from the Univeristy side and we try to mix up design from year to year. Hopefully one of these years we'll do a yellow hat.
Also looking for a student glee club or Acapella group to do the National Anthem this year. We've had the Men's Glee Club, Women's Glee Club and The Gentlemen before. If any of you students who read this are a member of a student glee club who might be willing to do it this year, make yourself known. The only hitch is that the game is on August 18th which is before school starts.
Dylan Larkin is likely going to throw the first pitch and the Alumni Cheerleaders and Wolverine Trooper will be making appearances.

So did you buy these in bulk painted this way or did you do the paint job? If it's the latter, would you do the paint job on a helmet I provided. I don't think these are great for skiing/snowboarding and I've got a helmet for that I'd really like to get the winged helmet paint job.

|6 weeks 2 days ago||WTF||
Things are really imploding in East Lansing
|7 weeks 1 day ago||There is NOTHING else there||
Having grown up five minutes from Paramus I can confidently tell you there is nothing else there except shopping malls. There are like three or four of them right next to each other off a major highway that hooks up with New York City to try to lure in the weekend shopping traffic.

Dorian Thompson-Robinson's mother is 1989 Michigan grad (School of Kinesiology).
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Question for Recruiting Knowledgable||
I know this year's crop in the State of Michigan was pretty solid. How does the 2018 class compare? I had heard it was a down year.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Mike does||
Mike Illitch loves the Tigers but the transition to his son Chris is happening and this may be his call. Unfortunate. A local and Michigan alum owner (at least Chris is) selling the team to both an out-of-town and Sparty owner(Gores).

What's wrong with people who don't drink Faygo?

He may be replacement for Kai Leon Herbert since he's appearing to be unsettled.

One more week of winter down.

If he was '15 prospect he'd be a regular transfer (not a grad transfer) and would have to sit a year
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Has anyone been keeping tabs on||
Has anyone been keeping tabs on/or can anyone provide a rundown of what Ohio State is losing to graduation and early entry to the draft?
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Wine is||
Wine, particularly red, is significantly better for you than beer. Either overdone is lousy for you but there have been significant studies indicating a glass of red wine a couple of times a week is beneficial.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||You're in my wheelhouse||
Ok... Here's some help..
EDIT: Willakenzie Estates in Oregon is also owned by UM alum Ronnie Lacroute. Good wine.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||That paragraph was from||
That paragraph was in an email that went out to all of us Alumni Student Recruiters. If you got deferred DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE. They'll review everyone who got deferred again in late January/early February and as they'll continue to roll admissions for the next two months. Maybe half or just over half of the kids who ultimately be on campus in September have gotten in at this point.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Tough comparison||
I can see the parallels, particularly that both teams are depending on young talent. However, you can do that in basketball (see Kentucky). Izzo teams usually have a little early season stumble. Talk to me in February/March and we'll see where he's got them. You can't fault a bunch of their losses so far because they're to top ten teams.Northeastern is a bad one though. Like I said, lets wait and see for another six weeks.

Lewan may have been a little too bad ass

This guy appears to be a 4 star

Time for some new names to emerge and some snake oil to be pulled from the closer
|14 weeks 1 day ago||I wonder if they move Cole back to tackle||
Cole wasn't overwhelming at center and we have more interior guys on the roster who could fill that spot (Kugler comes to mind). Considering the dearth of tackles, I wonder if Cole goes back to tackle and then JBB mans the other spot.
More than any other position I'll be watching that tackle spot during spring.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Not linemen||
Not really linemen.....its offensive tackles. We got some guys last year but they were mostly interior guys. The OT thing is mystifying to me considering how thin our depth chart is at that spot.
Hope Harbaugh found some of Rodriguez's snake oil in the corner of the closet because we need to snake us a high profile tackle from somewhere.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Can any||
Can any of these great receivers we're recruiting play tackle?
|14 weeks 1 day ago||That sucks||
Not going to disparage the kid or the decision. He has his reasons.
My question is who is left on the OT board. Our OT situation is scary right now. Newsome probably won't be ready to go physicall, JBB didn't pass his test earlier in the year. We know nothing about Ulizio except his rather low recruiting ranking. With both tackle spots opening up next year I suspect we would have had a true freshman in one of those spots. The two 3* kids look like they need time to bulk up and it sounds like the kid from Florida has some academic barriers he has to jump.
Is there anyone left on the board that is the kind of kid who can start? If not, are we looking for graduate transfers?

One more week until vacation. Let's start the weekend right with a big commitment today
