It took AP the entire season to get his case heard and he won. I don't see how Brady could get his case spead up.
|8 hours 53 min ago||Legally,||
How does carrying/ brandishing a weapon in MI compare to say a DUI? Is it the same level crime and in most cases is the penalty for a 1st time offender basically the same?
|23 hours 52 min ago||It's just an emoji readily available on most phones||
It really has nothing to do with Michigan, but looks like an M and is the symbol for the Greek M.
It's readily available on most phones as an emoji (if you have an iPhone, it's in the last group) and has been taken up by recruits to represent Michigan. It's not official or anything.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Maybe Ross gives||
another crazy amount to the Athletic Department to fund 18K Gold urinals?
|1 day 4 hours ago||Countess||
Would have been nice to have Countess at Nickel and Peppers at WR.
Anyway, on obvious passing downs, we just got a legit deep threat!
|1 day 6 hours ago||I Hope you find out soon...||
The benefit is the value you get for buying the season > individual games. Until we started sucking (for lack of a better word), tickets were much more expensive and hopefully become that way after Harbaugh threatens (and wins) the B1G yearly.
If you take our current home slate, OSU good-ish seats could go for $300+ and MSU for $200+ (and would have until 2007). That's $500 for 2 games. Throw in homecoming (maybe $100) and the rest and it's worth it.
Again, this value proposition goes away when we suck, which is why last year's attendance was so bad (and Brandon resorted to Coke give-a-ways).
|3 days 7 hours ago||Not for EA||
I'd rather have nothing than another crappy college game from EA.
|3 days 18 hours ago||My bad||
What I meant is that nobody seems to care about Cowherd's comments at all. It's not big on Facebook, buzfeed, gawker... And that is sad.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Sad :(||
The fact that Trump get's 10x more attention than Cowherd is sad. Hopefully, Cowherd's next employer will rescind his contract.
|4 days 19 hours ago||Shoulder doesn't matter. He||
Shoulder doesn't matter. He would never have been an NFL QB, so why not get a year at WR before the draft?

I'm pretty one dimensional, but I'll cheer for M basketball.
|5 days 6 hours ago||That's what they said about||
That's what they said about QB play and our man Nuss and QB play/ offense in general.
|5 days 6 hours ago||QB: $2 Robo Henne - At||
QB: $2 Robo Henne - At Michigan, could make any throw and handle pressure. Only downside is that he's not super mobile, but neither is Tom Brady @ $1 more
TB: $3 Morris - Certainly good enough to keep the D honest and wonder on how to stop Henne & Braylon vs. Morris. Also, I don't think Hart is worth $2 more.
WR: $4 Braylon - Again, at Michigan could catch anything and has the connection with Henne
D: $5 Woodson - Shut down corner and can play WR and return Punts. No other choice.
HC: $1 Harbaugh - Why not. He's at least a hard ass and will get the players to work their hardest, which may/ may not have been the case while Henne and Braylon were at Michigan.

Wouldn't the goats eat the grass along with the weeds? If not, this sounds like an awesome business opportunity for "organic, natural lawn care"!
|5 days 8 hours ago||I thought Harbaugh was going||
I thought Harbaugh was going to kick him out to get higher 247 composite players?
|5 days 20 hours ago||He's not a cheater||
But he's either taking money or is one of the only 5* kids not to be taking money, in which case he would be ...

Cooled on Mitch.
|6 days 4 hours ago||It's fair, but shady||
if the players had to audition to remain on the team.
It's fair, because all scholarships are for 4 years and the players graduated (which is the essence and point of athletic scholarships). However, I'm not so sure that's true as there isn't a scholarship crunch this season.
If a player like Heitzman was say 3rd string, but wanted to be on the team and had a good attitude, why would Harbaugh (or anyone) want the kid gone?
|6 days 6 hours ago||“Obviously, Harbaugh coming||
“Obviously, Harbaugh coming in was going to change things at Michigan — do things his way,” said Heitzman, a tight end from Hilliard Davidson. “But I didn’t know if I wanted to try out. That definitely took me off-guard. I was bummed out.”
What does that even mean? Doesn't every player by definition have to audition for the new staff? If your boss left and a new hire (from outside of the company) took over, wouldn't you have to show what you got?
It seems more like the staff was set at TE and didn't see a ton of playing time there for Heitzman and so he left. Good luck and congrats on earning your degree!
|6 days 6 hours ago||Apparently,||
this happened at 1:45AM, so...
Just curious, are the non-alum Michigan fans as trashy as the non-alum OSU fans? I have not spent a lot of time in Ohio and don't really know any OSU fans/ alumni.
|6 days 7 hours ago||But in a year where Michigan||
But in a year where Michigan has the scholarships available, I don't think it's so much as a question of which 5th years do we want to keep vs. nobody is guaranteed anything and even though you put in 4 years of work, a younger guy will play over you if he's better.
That true meritocracy was not there previously. I think that's why Countess also left. It's not that he wasn't going to start or play a lot, it's that he was offended by having to compete for the starting position after 4 years at Michigan (kind of understandably too).
|6 days 9 hours ago||Fantasy draft||
Where would you take Denard in a 12 team fantasy draft? Maybe round 9? Maybe earlier as kickers and D tend to fill up the last few rounds?
|1 week 12 min ago||MGoOhNo||
I agree with you, but you should phrase your argurment in a more positive tone and be less angry.
Also, being compared to Joey Gladstone is a positive thing, I think.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Agree||
I used to drive them a few times per week using a car share (like Zipcar) and they were awful. Not fun to drive, under powered, and had weird sight lines. They get great fuel economy and are reliable, but it's not even worth it to buy over a Matrix (or something similar).
|1 week 8 hours ago||Are you from the Metro NY area?||
That's where I haven't heard of anybody taking the ACT.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Haha||
My wife is worried as well. I did some bad shit until we started sucking. I even missed a few games the past few years.
|1 week 23 hours ago||ACT?||
I don't know anybody on NJ that took the ACT. I'm not sure people in NJ even know that there is an alternative college entrance exam.
|1 week 1 day ago||The interesting thing with||
The interesting thing with the uniforms is how they are all different. Adidas had the same uniform design and then changed the colors for each school, while Nike uses a unique design per school.
That alone is a huge plus.
|1 week 1 day ago||Ban?||
Mods, can you ban this kid?
