|5 weeks 5 days ago||You are right||
It is a stupid reason to drink. But St. Practice Day weekend is still the weekend before and then there are still celebrations on 3/17.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Perspective||
The drunk driving was dumb.
When I was in college (LC and RR years) and it was St. Patty's day weekend, we drank early and we drank hard.
This offense was stupid. He's on probation and there's always the chance he'll be randomly drug tested. He made a poor decision and got caught.
But really... lambasting a college kid for drinking during a holiday weekend where the holiday is celebrated by drinking all day with your friends? He took a risk and things did not come up Milhouse. He is going to be appropriately punished. Whoever is trashing him, I'm sure you were a blast at parties.
I understand you're disappointed in him, and that disappointment may come out in the form of name calling and anger because he is arguably our best offensive lineman. But name calling and belittling the kid is does nothing positive for our fanbase.
Edit: This was supposed to be in the thread where everyone is berating Glasgow.

NC state and Miami (YTM) doesn't constitute a lot.

Heavier objects fall faster. That elephant is going to have a much higher terminal velocity.

What did I just read?
|18 weeks 2 days ago||The author||
I think he's all about the page clicks. He wrote an article why Adrian Peterson's switch incident was worse for the NFL's image than Ray Rice's fist.
I don't know if I can take anything he says seriously after that.

|19 weeks 2 days ago||We were having a bad couple weeks...||
We were having a bad couple weeks at the end of 2013, and ole miss just grabbed a bunch of 5 star recruits including Treadwell. Malik McDowell was still uncommitted at the time another 4-star lineman committed to ole miss with the last name McDowell.
I thought it was going to be a good opportunity to bring some lighthearted fun to the board with the link below:
Some posters appreciated the joke, and then there were others who went through my posting history to downvote every post I've ever had. 10/10 I'd do it again.

We did it!
|30 weeks 3 days ago||I disagree||
Watching the McNeese Nebraska game made me think Nebraska is just as vulnerable as we are.
Sparty held on vs. Oregon for the first half, and shit the bed in the second half. In their other games (Even considering their competiton) they have looked pretty darn good. Defense has taken a step back, offense has taken a step forward.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||17-14 Michigan||
|31 weeks 3 days ago||OK||
|32 weeks 1 day ago||U of M wins||
|33 weeks 3 days ago||Too late to the party||
So I'll have to go with a ridiculous score. 41-20 Michigan.

Genius. I see the Dayton in your name, but do you know where can I grab me a bulgogi burrito in the metro Detroit area?

New banner every week?
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Smith||
I want carries split pretty evenly. maybe 16 Smith to 12 Green.
I imagine Green could have have a higher ypc by the end of the year, but I also feel Smith will have a higher median ypc, which is huge.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||I disagree||
I have to imagine Glasgow is going to be in the lineup next week, and I think it's a 50:50 chance Cole or Miller comes out. Cole did a fine job against App St., but they listed his size as 275 lbs on tv(I know I've seen him listed as heavy as 292, but I think that's grossly inflated). I don't think 275 lbs is going to hold up against the more talented DEs our LT could be facing.
I don't feel it's a wasted red shirt, because he could be our 6th man, who will probably see time down the schedule.

I'm outraged that Funchess is only 72nd rated on some espn list.
Outraged. He should've cracked the top 50. Sure, he was 107th in receiving yards last year, and tied for 97th in TD catches, but our fanbases' preseason hype means more than that.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||Their weights||
Is it possible that because they're high school kids and don't have collegiate or nfl size yet, their 40 times will be faster now?
|45 weeks 23 hours ago||That's the point OP was||
That's the point OP was trying to make. 87 isn't unique to tight ends, a bunch of them wear it. 19 is much more unique, Funchess wore it.

|1 year 1 day ago||Love the effort||
I understand and appreciate what you're trying to do with this post: lighten the mood on a very depressed board as of late.
I think some people are too pissed off to enjoy the levity though.

Is what it looks like when I'm holding a canteloupe in my hand.
He absolutely dwarfs that ball.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||He took||
He took a lot of hits last year. A lot. He played on a broken foot. I don't think anyone should question his toughness. Given the beating he took, I wouldn't be surprised to see anyone sit on the bench trying to take 'er easy until the next drive.

LT - Mags
|1 year 3 weeks ago||I am not Kalis||
But what I think Kalis means is you never knew which of the 100 plays would be called next. There were a ton of different formations, and a ton of different plays.
You are referring to opposing defensive coordinators or players knowing if we were going to pass or run based on what formations we lined up in.

They're building a light rail to connect the two. Should be completed pretty soon, and should make the commute pretty easy.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Summarizing this thread||
There have been a lot of arguments made in this thread, and I feel like people are trying to get in their .02 with disregarding what has been said.
A coach doesn't have to have played a position to be able to coach it.
This is true. I don't know anyone that would make this arguement. It may help to have played the position, especially with a QB coach, but it's not necessary, and there are a ton of examples where this is true as posters have pointed out.
If a coach is a good coach, then they can coach wherever.
To a point this is true. All good coaches should have similar skill sets. I think we could summarize those skills/abilities to: motivate kids, teach them proper technique, teach them their assignments, correct their mistakes, and really get the best out of them.
But technique is not always technique. Blocking is different for WRs, RBs, FBs, and OL. I don't think I've ever seen a RB kick step, for them it's more striking and driving, or cutting.
If someone has really coached 7 position groups, great. But I feel it takes a coach some time to really develop the expertise to know everything they're supposed to correct, and the ability to have the athletes correct those mistakes, even if it's a bad habit they've developed. That's where it may not be good to have a coach bounce around between a half dozen position groups, and most coaches resumes dont reflect those kinds of movements.
NCAA or NFL coaching career:
Meyer is the only coach to coach on both sides, but it was only for one year as an OLB coach. Coaches seem to have a specialty, either offense or defense, and they stay there.
Now, to the thread title: Why Roy Manning is the New CB Coach
Would they move manning to CB coach because of the rapport he developed with prospective athletes, who haven't played a down of Michigan football yet? I don't think so.
I do think Hoke put it best when he said something to the effect of dividing the coaches up a little more based on how many athletes/position group are on the field at one time. When we go into nickel there are 5 DBs on the field with 2 coaches, and a front 6 with 2 coaches. In our base 4-3 package every coach has at least 2 athletes.
Last year, we had a linebackers coach, Mark Smith, and we had an outside linebackers coach, Roy Manning. So in our base package there were 2 coaches for 3 positions. For our nickel package there were 2 coaches for 2 positions.
Overall I wouldn't worry too much about moving Manning to CB coach. I know not everyone agrees with me, but I really like Mallory as a DB coach, and I think if Manning has any issues, Mallory can help guide him.
