|15 min 58 sec 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 hour 57 min 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 hour 59 min 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.

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.
|3 hours 33 min 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.
|3 hours 40 min 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 day 41 min 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 day 1 hour 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.

Was 4-13 with a pick. Why do you want him to start so badly?
|1 day 23 hours ago||Molk looks ok||
But the skins are getting a lot more pressure on folk after he came in.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Stop the miles||
Wishing. He had 2 chances and it didn't happen. Why would it happen now?
|1 day 23 hours ago||The author is just guessing||
And has no known track record of knowing anything. Michigan has a new president who isn't a sports guy and Brandon is crapping money (look at all of the non revenue capital improvements).
|2 days 7 hours ago||No,||
It's his reluctance to change or even consider it, simply because he has never done it. Same with tempo and not manballing it.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Joe kerrage||
Is having a bad game. Can't block or catch.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Probably because Gardner looks awful||
Out there and our o line can't block 250lb dudes.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Gardner hasn't thrown a pass without||
Jumping or running during the throw.
|2 days 23 hours ago||At least we don't lose||
Funchess to the NFL!
|2 days 23 hours ago||Check the game thread||
There are decent streams there.

That run a non-profit.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Oregon is the better team||
because they won, but that's a Captain Obvious comment. The point is that they were looking bad at half-time and made adjustments that played into MSU's Defensive style of play. That's pretty impressive coaching.

And didn't read who the op was, however your comment made it clear.
|6 days 5 hours ago||I'm not a Jameis fan at all,||
but the kid does have an outgoing personality and it was a joke. He's not under a Title 9 investigation, FSU is and nobody in Talahassee will ever convict him of anything. Why should he care?
|6 days 5 hours ago||I thought the origin was||
the 1st video here:
|6 days 21 hours ago||Who cares?||
It's a joke. It's harmless. He's in college.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Who cares?||
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.
|1 week 3 days ago||In my culture||
Kids are hot all of the time and nobody thinks anything of it, but we are a "barbaric" crowd.
|1 week 3 days ago||Exactly.||
Is add that spanking is also cultural and very much depends on where you are from.
|1 week 3 days ago||Not exactly.||
People like nice scotches and bourbons beat because they are more "pure". Some people say a drop or 2 of water makes them more pungent and aromatic. I don't really think that is true.
|1 week 3 days ago||Not to be too picky,||
but I'm happy our Mods have better writing skills than to use "BS" roughly once per paragraph.

My God. He's on his way to Gholston territory
