If everyone is healthy:
I think our linebackers next year will be able to stop Miller when they need to.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Out of Hand?||
Seems like recruiting is pretty into Hand right now..
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed, but..||
Getting one recruit may not be a program defining moment. An extreme talent at DE is great to have, but they're not going to be able to carry a team to victory by themselves.
But getting the #1 recruit in the nation can do a lot of good things for the perception of the program, team's perception to future recruits, and perception of the direction the program is headed.

They may not always be right. RR's second year my buddy was a GA on the team. Every week he would tell me they are starting Denard over Forcier. Never happened... but he still told me every week that was what was happening.
With that being said, I don't think Ace Williams has any sources period, nor does he knows shit about shit.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Changes||
If Hoke grabs a new OL coach, I'll be happy. If Hoke grabs a new OC, I'll be happy. If Hoke doesn't replace either coach, I'll be a bit skeptical, but the results on the field next year will speak volumes to Hoke's decision. If next year our OL is so porous no OC would be able to succeed, I'll be a little upset then.
When I look at this team, Hoke's first full recruiting class are now sophomores. There are times I don't like youth being thrown around as an excuse, but let's just take a deep breath and stand back. Hoke had 3 weeks to finish the 2011 recruiting class: that is not fair. I'm hoping 2014 and 2015 have some brighter days. Hoke assembled some pretty good 2012 and 2013 recruiting classes, and hopefully it shows on the field next year when the team is filled with Hoke's juniors and sophomores.

That was M-barrassing.
I am mgobefuddled as to how that game.
|5 weeks 20 hours ago||Not accepted?||
Hand is a hard worker in the classroom as well as on the football field. I think I remember seeing him already taking Calc II as a senior in high school... I don't think he would have any problem getting into U of M's engineering school.

|9 weeks 3 days ago||Have to disagree||
Haven't really seen too much to think Devin excels at the read option. Watched quite a few plays where he reads the DE wrong and Tousssaint is left with a -2 yard run.

I have disgraced my family. Apologies: thought he was a true freshman.

DJ Fluker started at right tackle as a freshman for Bama in 2010.
That season they only went 10-3, which is pretty shitty for Alabama.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I never said the players are||
I never said the players are receiving nothing in return for playing football. I believe I said a 2,000 dollar a semester stipend wouldn't be so bad for the athletes playing major revenue producing sports. I understand you're frustrated with participating in the Michigan Cycling Club, but Michigan football will take in more than 80 million dollars this year from big house ticket sales alone. A 2,000 dollar a semester stipend wouldn't even be 0.5% of the big house ticket sale revenue.
I included the food point having just read about Arian Foster complaining there wasn't food in his fridge, and he needed his coach to buy him tacos. That's a violation.
Another example would be if Devin Gardner wanted to workout with a 100 dollar an hour quarterback guru. If he worked with him for 40 hours, his yearly stipend is already gone.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I'm all about||
bullet points 1 and 2.
3 I think has enough going on right now, I don't think it needs to be hammered further.
Bullet point 1 - Would something like 2,000 a semester really be so terrible to give to the major revenue producing athletes? If we're talking about 10,000 a year, that's a little silly, but a small stipend for groceries seems reasonable.
Let's look at a guy like Taylor Lewan. His diet requires something like 6000 calories a day.
Let's say he's taking in 2000 calories from protein, 2000 from carbs, and 2000 from fat. For convenience sake, let's say all the protein is from boneless skinless chicken breast: it's cheap, it's easy, it's healthy. That's 500 grams of protein - that's 5 pounds of chicken breasts every day. at 1.99 a pound, on sale if you're REAL lucky, that's 10 dollars a day just in chicken.
2,000 a semester would be 4,000 a year. Barely more than the 3,650 Taylor would be spending solely on chicken.
Bullet point 2 seems reasonable - and could potentially create jobs for an unemployed actuary like myself. Win win!
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I blame Borges||
Gorgeous Al Borges isn't calling enough touchdown passes. If he called more touchdown passes, we'd score more touchdowns.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Back in 2010||
Or around 2010.... I remember Wisconsin started off 5-0, and they were unranked.
Then they lost their 6th game. At 5-1 they were unranked.
Then they lost their 7th game. At 5-2, they were then ranked.
I remember thinking that was absolutely ridiculous.

|11 weeks 2 days ago||I tried to be polite.||
I tried to be polite. There's no reason for you to be a dick.
I understand you need both strength and technique to be a good lineman. I understand that. If you're trying to say being a good lineman is dependent on both physical prowess and technique, I can agree with you there. You're going to need to be a powerful guy, and you're going to need to know how to use that power, with great technique, to block someone.
Do you understand that being big and strong and having great technique aren't related? They are not dependent on each other. Therefore they are independent.
And Molk could bench press 370 pounds and squat 520 as a senior in high school. This is before he was ever in a college strength program. He has always been extremely powerful.
You can ask coaches, players, trainers, everyone involved in sports. Just because you're an athletic freak doesn't mean you have great technique.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I didn't mean to offend you.||
Not trying to be snarky, just stating a fact: Physical prowess and technique are independent.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||..?||
Physicality is independent of technique. I may be a phenomenal technician, but I'm 6 ft 180 lbs. I'm not going to be able to block anyone on any line anywhere.
Molk had great technique, but he was also physically dominant. He hit 30+ reps at the combine if I remember correctly.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Ok...||
I may have been joking, but nothing sarcastic about it. GERG's schemes involved the DL to pick the gaps they felt were best.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||GERG||
GERG didn't have disciplined gap assignment football, and it worked just fine.
|12 weeks 16 hours ago||MSU||
Worst receiving corps? That is certainly debatable. They come down with a case of the dropsies every now and then, but Burbridge, Arnett, and Mumphery are very talented.

|12 weeks 4 days ago||Hoke will never||
Hoke will never say Sparty pulls some bullshit on the field (punching Lewan comes nowhere near twisting Denard's face mask like that). He will say rivalry games are physical, and Dantonio will chalk it up to his players being passionate. Face mask twisting and dirty bullshit isn't passionate, it's just dirty bullshit that I'm sure Narduzzi and Dantonio are advocates for during the Michigan game.
