John U. Bacon talks about branding and monetization of college sports all the time, like it's a bad thing.
But when rubber hits the road and he has a book to sell about Michigan during the Rodriguez era, who is on the cover?
No - Denard and his famous stiff-arm of Manti Te'o.

Be sure to reject any donations from "Hal Gorgeous" from Saline.

It would be "Alanis Morrisette"-worthy "irony" if the Kickstarter gets fully funded with 27 hours remaining.

Hoke has gone on record with the media that this Saturday's event will not be a game of any sort. Saturday's proceedings will be practice drills.
So the best thing to do is turn off the TV or not go to the stadium, and do something worthwhile with your 2 hours.

I'll be at Saturday's game. Good luck to Michigan hockey.

To take the glass-half full approach, they could be offering both and letting them know the first one to commit gets the spot, because they need a RB.

Tom got his start by monitoring Anthony Fera's Facebook wall and noticing he switched his background from Michigan to Penn State, if I recall correctly.

I disagree. I think Brian's future son, Denard Rodriguez Cook, will do a fine job with the blog.

Okla brings a safety and LB to the line so it's almost a 5-3. RG Leon Brown(-1) releases but can't get to a fast-reading MLB because Kelly(+0.5) has crumpled a 6'6 NT right in his path. FB Fowler(-0.5) has to choose one of two unblocked LBs and plunks WLB who's coming outside. MLB can sit in the hole and tackle. RPS-1 for running into an 8-man front.
According to your description of this play, had Brown blocked the MLB, there would have been a blocker on each defender and Yeldon would've gotten much more than 2.
This doesn't sound like a bad playcall at all. I don't think "running into an 8-man front" is something that should be downvoted if the playcall still provides a route to success. After all, had the blocking been executed, with 8 in the box Yeldon is more likely to break it for 60 if he can clear the front.

A true coaches view? It is nice work but come on.

He skips at least one a year. This shouldn't surprise anyone.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, isn't it going to||
Yeah, isn't it going to absolutely suck when every member of the offensive line is a fourth-year or third-year junior with at least two years of starting experience? Isn't it going to absolutely suck when the WRs are upperclassmen, the TEs have been playing for four years, the QB is a true junior, the running backs are upperclassmen? THIS IS GOING TO SUCK, ROYALLY.

Chesson, Green, Butt and Kerridge are doing quite well as underclassmen, be patient.

Making fun of Minnesota coeds? Seriously?

Go ahead and focus your eyes upon the defensive backfield and linebacker corps at a couple of true sophomores not on the travel squad, and you'd probably have a good idea.

Nebraska actually outgained Michigan State, but they turned the ball over five times. And these weren’t the Shilique-Calhoun–destroying-a-QB-from-the-blind-side turnovers. These were 2008 Michigan turnovers. But other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, they probably plated well enough to win.
Sparty Iron Chef?
Seriously though, I find spelling errors in almost every post I read on this site. Does this site have spell-check, or a copy editor?

It's pretty clear that Devin should have been kept at quarterback and Denard should have been moved everywhere on the field a la Percy Harvin.

Setting the bar a little low, aren't you? Shouldn't all 18 year olds be able to type that?

Any months of De'Shawn Hand.
This isn't worth debating.

enrolled in the College of Engineering, majoring in industrial and operations engineering.
So there is obviously no rule in place.

The ability to major in a program you've studied in high school.
Objectively, this is an easy decision. Don't take it hard.

If Borges is going to claim this is year one of the transition, then he should have moved Denard to RB in his first fall camp. Not only would he have gotten going on the offense he wants to run, Denard would've been playing the position he is at in the NFL, Devin would be a third-year starter, and Michigan would've been better than 19-7 Hoke's first two years.

Blame that guy.

I do think at this point, they know it's not just execution but rather their inability to teach these guys what to do or adjust.
During the season we're not going to get red meat soundbites, but I doubt this offseason comes to pass without some changes occurring with the football staff.
