|16 hours 54 min ago||Why the hell didn't||
any idiot at Michigan just read this piece of paper on Sunday/ Monday for the press.
That & Hoke saying (on Saturday) that he didn't see the incident, but takes head trauma seriously and will work with Brandon to understand if Shane had a concussion and Michigan would investigate if procedure was followed and get back to the media ASAP.
Those 2 simple truths would have avoided the media firestorm. Somebody needs to be fired for this incompetence.

We'll get Hoke Jr. (a guy that could be great or could be awful, who knows but we'll have another 3 year experiment) as there are no (to my knowledge) pure home run coaches available.
Honestly, it looks like Schiano is the best guy out there. He had issues in the locker room in Tampa, but they had no players and with Harbaugh, people think his locker room issues are fine.

because recruits need a backup. It all depends on who the next coach is and I think the next guy will basically run the same system as we are currently running.
After RR, I'd be shocked if we hire a Gus Malzan/ Chip Kelly spread em out type of coach, so the new guy will basically run the same O and the same goes for D (we are not going to a 3-3-5 and everybody wants "aggressive" "attacking" defenses anyway).
I don't believe USC lost many in their transition, because Sark and Kiffin had basically the same type of O & D systems.

Also, I don't understand how everybody can say that Shane had a consussion with such certainty.
I hope Hoke's fired ASAP and his comments after the game make him look like an idiot (e.g. we pulled Shane because he had a leg injury, but put him back in 30 seconds later for one play).
|1 day 23 hours ago||Agree,||
I think (and hope) Hoke is fired and maybe even Brandon too, but I don't know why everybody is assuming Michigan is lying and that Shane had a concussion.

|2 days 2 hours ago||Nobody knows anything||
Sal palontonio was reporting that the 49er players didn't like harbaugh and there was a division in the locker room between the new guys and the guys that have been with harbaugh for a few seasons (they love him). If you saw the 49ers game yesterday, his players ran over to him and hugged him and celebrated. Winning cures all troubles. I don't see how the 49ers fire/ trade him after the season.

If you actually watch huge video, Morris doesn't look concussed. Also, Gardner played 3 quarters of the OSU game last year with a broken foot.
|2 days 14 hours ago||I want hoke fired as much as the next guy||
But people are blowing this out of proportion. If you watch that video, there is no reason to believe Morris had a concussion. He was hit hard, and in pain, but it was not unsafe of him to play.

Do you have a link from Henson saying that RR was on his way out and Hoke would be hired? I did a 2 minute google search and found this from December 13, 2010. I didn't bother to search, but we all knew this as of December 2010. The common thought here was that RR's fired unless he pulls off a great showing in the bowl game. No dispute.
"Hoke is a dark horse candidate to replace Rich Rodriguez at Michigan if there is a change and Harbaugh doesn't want the job. Hoke has even gone as far as to tell San Diego State that he would leave for the Michigan job."
Again, I'm saying Henson is a hack and there is no plausable way he has more "inside" information than Webb, Beaver, any of the Stretchgate writers or any of the web guys (Brian, 247, TomVH...).
He's making money by writing clickbate and using "anonymous" sources.
|5 days 2 hours ago||What did Henson ever write||
that makes you think he didn't pull this from an oriface? How does he have "inside" information that ESPN, the Detroit papers, Sam, Beaver, TomVH... do not have?
He's Ace Williams. Nothing more, nothing less.

Didn't want to start a new thread on Winston, but there may be some new information. From Wetzel:
"Or an attorney advising Winston actually started the process by flying down to Tampa and offering that sum, or some sum, to the victim/accuser as a way to buy her off…"
"Winston's advising attorney went over the top and tried to be a bully. The woman's attorney said in a statement he, "threatened to sue our client and her parents for civil racketeering in an effort to intimidate them into staying quiet" and acted, "crude and insulting going so far as to say 'your client likes to [expletive] football players' "…"
|6 days 13 hours ago||No point in firing hoke||
No point in firing hoke without a replacement lined up. The pickings are kind of slim (as of today) so is make sure somebody is ready to go before firing hoke.

People are so delusional when it comes to harbaugh. He's never coming to michigan. Move on people.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Correct,||
although even if he doesn't get along with the 49ers, there are plenty of NFL teams that would scoop him up for more money & control.
|6 days 19 hours ago||I don't like Boards of Regents||
they are politically motivated (read their bios, the 1st thing about them is their political party) and generally know nothing about running a university's AD.
|6 days 19 hours ago||College is a lot harder to coach||
Because of recruiting (and all of the traveling) and being the "face" of the University. The only benefit to an egomaniac like Harbaugh is that almost every college kid would say "yes sir" to him, while NFL stars may talk back (see Desean Jackson & Chip Kelly).
Can we finally stop this Harbaugh to Michigan talk? It's actually in Harbaugh's best interest to act like he would consider a Michigan offer to have more negotiating leverage with the 49ers.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Not a lawyer (thankfully),||
but how can this be legal? How can you pay somebody to not cooperate with police and not report a crime? That has to be illegal, correct?

|1 week 1 hour ago||OP, what about Shane makes you pick him?||
Your TLDR is that something is wrong with Gardner. Everybody agrees.
What has Shane done that shoows you he's any good? He played 1 meaningful game in the last 3 years and was pretty average. I don't even think he was very good in Hig School (e.g. Bellomy was similar). Shane performed really well at camps (so did DG, as he was praised by the Manning's) and that's about it.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Chatsports||

|1 week 17 hours ago||Exactly,||
This isn't Schiano and 2 terrible seasons. Both Harbaughs' would have plenty of NFL teams knocking if either of their teams fired them or if they wanted to leave. They both have plenty of options.
|1 week 20 hours ago||It's "offer" vs. offer||
Meaning that Michigan never offered the job to anybody who didn't accept it. Guys like Miles and the Harbaughs' were "offered" the job, but never recieved an official paper (maybe even verbal) offer.
It's a wink/ wink kind of thing. Just like when Herbstreit reported that Michigan had "offered" the job to Miles. It was never an official offer. Same with Schiano.
|1 week 22 hours ago||What?||
Our offense has scored 1 field goal against the 2 teams that have a pulse. Why would you promote that guy? Because he kept the offense of the best team in the county going and then was asked to leave?
|1 week 22 hours ago||Why is Hoke a good Recruiter?||
I mean, I know you will say his Rivals/ 247/ ESPN/ Scout rankings are high, but when kids like Pipkens are beaten out by walk-ons, maybe kids just get a star bump because of the Michigan name, which makes it look like we recruit well.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Exactly,||
Give Gardner to Chip Kelly and the he'd be gunning for a Heisman.
On MNF last night, they showed the playbook that Geno Smith had at WV under Dana Holgorsen (maybe 10 laminated pages) and the playbook under Morningwheg (a TPS report sized binder). I know Nuss isn't Good Ol' Marty, but the system isn't very different (an neither was Borges').
How the hell is a college kid getting a Masters and playing football supposed to master a binder sized playbook in 6 months? If Gardner were on the bench in this system for 3 years, then yes, he should and would have, but not in 6 months.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Who is Gegg Henson and how does he know anything?||
My recollection from all of the snooping we did before the Hoke hire was that Brandon met with Miles, but something happened (the rumor maybe was true, or people high up at Michigan thought the guy was an a** or that Miles had cold feet). I thought they had some restaurant report that Brandon and Miles met.
Also, Harbaugh was reportedly offered the job, but choose the NFL > Michigan. I thought this was also commonly accepted.
Now Mr. Henson is saying that neither happened and Brandon specifically tagged Hoke from the start? That doesn't make sense, especially given Hoke's resume at that point. How did the 2 guys even know each other aside from in passing?
I hope the new AD has no ties to Michigan and is a total outsider. We don't need any more of this arrogant Michigan Man crap.
|1 week 23 hours ago||I don't believe Hawthorne.||
Smith and Odoms were given their chances (and did well) and played a lot. They even post here a few times a year about the #eating initiative (which is awesome), so I don't think they have any axes to grind with Michigan or Hoke.
We all know about Furman and how well he did after transfering (answer is not that well). Hawthorne also bings up Justin Turner getting a raw deal, which if he did, then why was he never productive on another team?
|1 week 1 day ago||Good for Molk,||
but I was watching the Eagles game and when Kelce went out and Molk came in, the line was awful. I think Foles wasn't even hit in the 1st half, but was beaten to a pulp after Molk (ganted, the Eagles have other OL issues and Peters was suspended during the game).
Maybe with a week of practice with the 1st team, he'll improve.
How's Brandon Graham doing on the Eagles? I didn't notice him, but hear he is getting a shot as a pass rusher.
|1 week 1 day ago||Why the Brandon hate?||
I don't understand all of the Brandon hate. Maybe, it's because I view him as the CEO of Michigan athletics and not the CEO of the Football team (that would be Hoke).
Brandon has raised revenue like a champ, renovated a lot of non-revenue facilities, paid for Mattison, Nuss, and all of the basketball coaches (who have not left). Everybody wants to fire Hoke (as do I) but why Brandon?
I don't particularly care about uniforms, or RAWK music in the stadium (the few games I went to with that music actually appeared to pump up fans) or even Groupon ticket sales. I want Brandon to continue to make money for the AD to pay for the best coaches and facilities. That's his job.

Tempo doesn't mean snap every ball as quick as possible. It means using no huddle, running to the line and having specific series of plays to call ASAP. However, that's only when the offense wants to exploit some portion of the defense. It's not an every play sort of thing, so the average is irrelevant.

" For the record, firing someone before the end of the regular season is a pointless exercise in self-immolation."
USC was worlds better after firing Kiffin mid-season and having Ed Orgeron take over as interim coach. They then went out and hired the guy they targeted from the start. That mid-deason firing is an example of when it works.
I'm actually in favor of mid-season firings at a big time program. You send signals to the market that you are looking for a coach and have more time to hire one (presumably being able to preserve the recruiting class).

I don't think they have the pure talent to compete against the elite teams, but nobody in the B1G is elite. I'm not sure how much better Barrett is going to get at OSU, but my guess is not enough to beat MSU.
Other than that, Wisconsin has a decent chance, but I'd (sadly) put my money on MSU.

3. Yes, but we are recruiting very well. Green was the #1 RB in the country.
4. Agree. Who knows, is it Nuss or the fact that any idiot (e.g. Kiffin) could be successful at Bama, with Saban as te HC.
Assuming a very quality HC would take the job (e.g. like a Franklin type guy), I'd fire Hoke if he's also blown out at MSU (who looked really good yesterday, even with a loss) and OSU (who is Braxton-less).

4) ... (Big 12 Champ, undefeated mid major, who knocked off a Top 10 team, 1 loss SEC team, especially if it were like last year and Alabama loses on a fluke play, undefeated ND team, not this year, since this scenario has Michigan going undefeated).
What about a 1 loss Michigan team (say we lose to ND or MSU, but win the B1G Championship game. Would Michigan be selected, with 1 loss if the entire conference loses marquee non-conference matchups? I don't think so. Why not the Big 12 or ACC champ?

On one hand, Michigan needs the conference to be stronger. That way, a 1 loss B1G Champion Michigan team (maybe even undefeated) is sure to go to play in the Final 4. We need the B1G to win out of conference games, especially against the big boys (LSU, Oregon). That way, when Michigan beats MSU, our claim to going to the Final 4 as a 1 loss team is strengthened.
On the other hand, a MSU win (combined with their Rose Bowl last year) really strengthens their program and probably influences some recruits who may have choosen Michigan instead.
I think it's more important that the conference appears stronger come voting time. Either way, Michigan needs to beat State for this to mean anything to us.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Hope I'm wrong.||
I think our inexperience on OL is going to hurt us in the 2nd half. Hoke and Nuss will have some early tricks to mitigate our OL play, but I think ND figures this out in the 2nd half.
I also think that ND will dink and dunk us all day and will break 2-3 long runs because of poor DL play.
I think M jumps out early 14-0, but ND wins 28-21.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I think it matters||
which click/ group you roll with.
It's possible that the entire footbal team and staff are super left wing and that Bosch is not, but that;s unlikely.
Like I said, there is a group on campus that for everything. If you have a (legal) interest in life, you will find like minded people at Michigan (I mean there are like 40,000 students).

But damefan is a loser. Please watch his videos. It will become apparent.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||No politics||
But I will say that Michigan (at least in the 2000's) had every type of political/ social group. There were religious, atheists, republicans. Democrats, guys who hunted, and vegetarians. I thing you are speculating too much.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I don't know if||
"We" are wrong and Brian is right, even after the ufr's. The issue is that we don't know the actual play called and the specific responsibilities of the players.

The UM Press release says, "TuneIn will carry every play-by-play broadcast of Michigan football this season. Fans can simply search "college football" on the free TuneIn Radio app or visitTuneIn.com/collegefootball for a complete list of their team's games. "
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Sounds pretty solid||
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Who is your TV provider?||
Generally, people get DVR's through their cableco or sattelite provider. A few even offer TiVO (for a fee). One advantage of TiVO is that you can get their free PC program that allows you to upload video from the TiVo to a PC wirelessly. You can then convert to AVI (or any other format) and view the game/ movie/ show on any device.
If you are OTA or don't want to use your TV provider, then I believe Hauppage has some solid products, but don't have experience using them.
Another thought is if you wait a few hours, doesn't somebody upload the full game to a torrent site?

A decent team. We will see how they do against penn state, but they have some skilled players.

I can't say don't bring your 1 year old, because every kid is different and reacts to stimulation differently.
My guess is that 3+ hours is way too much. I'd be worried about feeding, sleeping, the temperature... to take my kid when he was that age.

That our OL is so bad that Barry himself wouldn't get drafted, so let Isaac wait a year and run behind a competent line.

Lewan was put in random situations/ defenses stayed away from him and Schofield was over rated. The , I'll assume Borges has extremely complex schemes. Assuming this is all true, out OL could regress towards the mean.

|5 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah. Oh God,||
I forgot we lost to them.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||You are wrong!||
You have to accept that this is not 1984 and Bo is not our coach.
Today's college game is all about money. If you don't like that, then I guess you should watch any non-revenue college sport. Brandon scheduled this game because Michigan (like almost every other team) needs a cupcake non-conference opponent, and App St. is one of the few that will get us any press.
Would you have felt better playing a directional Michigan school or Toledo? My guess is yes, but with an opponent like that, nobody would have cared and Michigan would have missed out on the press. It's not about revenge, it's about cash money!
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Yes. Search sites||
I'm sure you could get a pair and 2 4 seat combos, but they could be anywhere in the stadium. If you all want to sit together/ relatively close, but tickets beforehand.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||This is why RU & UMD are good adds||
This relatively complex and uncertain system, combined with watching (regular) NFL games is why cable is relevant and important. When you have a 50"+ TV, streaming from an international VPN kind of sucks. Even with an "HD" stream.
Unbundling willnot happen (especially with the Comcast & TW merger). Good job Dave!

|5 weeks 5 days ago||Wow, this is pure gold||
I thought it would be another puff piece about how honest and vnoble ND is by proactively looking for cheaters, even if they are football players. I was plesantly surprised.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||As a never-coached/ played guy,||
that was my 1st thought as well. If Gardner always MIKE's the 2nd from left LB/S as the MIKE, why not have that guy just go out in coverage or do something else that doesn't necessitate him being blocked by a lineman/ RB?
The only real advantage I see is that the O will now be on the same page with the QB MIKEing vs. the Center (and we don't know who our center is at this point).
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Probably true, but that's||
Probably true, but that's how it is for many teams. The issue is that the team needs to get to the line in time to then look at the coaches and make an adjustment

|5 weeks 6 days ago||Re: Kalis||
Anyone know what day this drilled happened on? I believe Hoke said Kalis would be back for Monday (8/18)
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Stream!||
Given the Watch ESPN & BTN Apps and other services (e.g. Tivo 2 Go, Slingbox), you shouldn't miss a whole game. You can at least stream parts of the game when appropriate.
Last year, I watched the Akron game via my iPhone on the BTN App during my cousin's baby shower. Not ideal, but understandable (especially with everyone staring at screens nowadays).
However, pre technology, I missed games mostly due to weddings. I was able to get out of most family functions for at least 2 hours (watch after halftime).
|6 weeks 1 hour ago||Yeah||
I'm sure we just saw his completions, not all of his attempts. However, the kid can run and has a strong arm (there was barely any arc to his throws, they were straight missiles).
I wonder how much of this was against OSU's 2nd/ 3rd string D, because the corners were not very good.
|6 weeks 19 hours ago||He was only at IU and SDSU||
He was only at IU and SDSU for 2 years, but I agree that his Auburn recruiting wasn't very solid.
|6 weeks 21 hours ago||I'll assume JT Barrett can run||
If so, ~20 combined TDs is like 1.7 or so a game, which when considering OSU's SOS & Offensive style isn't much of a stretch (especially if he's good enough to consistently play over Cardale.
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||For server speed,||
have a single thread every day during the season dedicated to firing Funk and keep that thread on a separate server. That will keep the rest of the site running smoothly.
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||Misleading...||
The Borges QB file is a bit misleading. We don't know if Borges choose guys like Jake Bernards while saying no thanks to guys like Johnny Football. Other than Auburn, the other schools aren't known exactly for attracting world class football talent.
Similarly to the Cornwall & O'Conner argument, which highly rated kids legitimately liked Michigan, but Borges never showed interest in? My random guess is that not many.
Maybe Cornwall, O'Conner and Speight were the only 3* + kids who Michigan actually had a shot with last year (that speaks volumes, I guess).
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Miller out isn't as big of a deal as we think it is||
The out for a whole year thing is clearly speculation, as he just went out yesterday and nobody knows the results of any tests done. Also, their schedule (much like Michigan's) is easy until the 8th game (PSU), with the possible exception of VA Tech.
8 games is a lot of time for their backups to learn the system, especially against cupcake teams and may even be enough for Miller to recover.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||But,||
how high in the draft could he go, missing the entire year? I know he's a Heisman caliber talent, but how does he project to the NFL?

If ND wins 9-10 games (don't know their schedule) I think Kelly goes to the NFL if Chip has success again in Philly. Somebody will take a chance with him and his system for sure.

They are doing the right thing. Good job ND, I won't make fun of them anymore. I wish all schools acted this way!
|6 weeks 5 days ago||If Long and Lewan couldn't do it,||
I'm not sure who could. How good is Cole?
|7 weeks 19 hours ago||This is why we should leave punishment||
up to a Judge/ jury. It's not like the Ray Rice situation, where the victim didn't cooperate. I'm sure dude with the broken jaw is going to press charges. Let them decide. Hoke made the right call by kicking him off the team for now.
|7 weeks 19 hours ago||Wow, Deadspin article was great.||
I don't see how Michigan finishes #21. I think we are top 10 or nor ranked based on our schedule and our 3 rivalry games. If Michigan goes 9-3 with losses to the 3 rivals, Michigan would (and should be unranked). If we beat say ND, but drop 1 more, likewise, we would be unranked, IMO.
|7 weeks 19 hours ago||OK, so neg away||
I think what happens to him depends on what a judge decides based on a trial or at least what police uncover.
I don't know the law or even degrees of assault, but if whatever he's convicted of/ pleads to should dictate his punishment, which should range from 1 year off the team to expulsion from the school.
The video is pretty bad, but as I've said before - not that anybody remembers me :( when the law is involved, the University and Sports teams should go by what the kid is convicted of/ pleads to.
Also, not that many disagree, but if Ray Rice only received a 2 game suspension and very minimal (if at all) criminal punishment, what does that say about York?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||This is how rumors start||
There is no indication from anybody that Kalis is injured. Hoke has been pretty upfront with injuries and we will know for shizzle based on Saturday's scrimage.
This quote is from Seth from the Insider Practice front page thread. Why start rumors?
"Kalis is in every configuration except the one tweeted out, and he still started much of last year."

The only issue is financial. If enough people buy these alternate Jerseys, Adidas will keep developing them. If you want to blame anyone, blame the fans that buy these things.
