I mean at least let Dwight's back heal, and Nash to comeback. Damn they must not like this guy at all! WOnder who its gonna be next
|2 years 48 weeks ago||DG12 was ballin!||
He also had guys like Tree and Gallon making plays around him which made it great. Defense was solid. With respect to recruiting and WR prospect Treadwell I think Gardner answered a valid question for the passing game next year today! Great 180 this week and congrats to a true Michigan Man!
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Sweet!||
Since his nickname is "The Freak" can we get some people who know how to embed pics
put in some Rick James pics.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||lf this does not||
show the athleticism of our recruits, I do not know what does. This is awesome. DL and OL guys that play hoops.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I wish DJ Cooper||
would've been the DJ Cooper we saw in the first round. He had a real rough night with decision making. All in all that coach is headed for a big time job if he keeps up the coaching that he's doing. Does Illinois have a coach yet? He has to be in consideration for the job. Did anyone see the locker room meetings and in-game interviews he had? Very promising coach who is a spitting image (coach-wise) of Thad Matta.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||This years recruiting||
Looks like a class that you have on NCAA Football 12 on XBOX
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Saw the Hello||
And was like, what up Mr Isaac! Calling in a commit to UM live from Pasadena would be awesome. All u need after that is call-ins from Poggi, Vanderdoes, Cravens, and Treadwell. Dreaming this early in the day is hazardous to your health!
|3 years 28 weeks ago||fans at michigan are fickle???||
Fans are always fickle when a back office or personal decision is made that impacts their team negatively. Its called fierce loyalty. DMo's decision was his decision. IMO its pretty sweet when you watch the NBA draft and see your PG going to the Lakers, regardless hes in the D-League now. Manny Fresh went back to D-League and is now with the Cavs again. It sucks when fans have to document (forever) their feelings towards a player like DMo. It hurts when your best players leave. Just ask Kentucky, their entire starting lineup will probably end up in the NBA by the end of their Sophomore year if not this year. I hope Trey stays but if I were him I would strongly consider it too, especially if I made 2nd Team All-American. I think were all mad we lost to Ohio and he is such a good player that he might leave when we were just getting back to being nationally recognized. How about trust that your Coach is going to keep making it happen an wish these guys the best. I mean DMo leaves, he gets Trey and now he goes out to Nevada looking at a possible replacement/depth guy for Trey in Della Valle. All Im saying is SHOW SOME LOVE!
|3 years 28 weeks ago||usually||
you let off fireworks and light couches on fire when you win...that is just stupidity with a capital T!
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I thought the||
Vanderdoes kid would play DT, arent we recruiting him? Nobody mentioned his name here. Hes the Cali DT who's HS team sports the Winged helmet.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Since this is about||
Positive posts. Am I alone in saying that whoever dogs Devin Gardner (unless he were to throw 4 picks or fumble 5 times in a game) should get banned from posting. Heres a guy who, IMO, should've transferred already to get playing time somewhere else with Denard being the QB. Instead of outlashing about it he stays the course, remains humble, and goes to work everyday. Total Michigan Man! Call me crazy but I believe he is the most versatile player on the roster. I know I am a lowly poster on here and dont know much about coaching, but he has got to see the field more this year, and if that is at WR then do it! You cannot tell me he is not one of the best 11 we have on offense. Go Blue
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Unpredictable||
situation. IMO Trey should stay. Most with his size and skill set are hard to get a read on for the NBA since there are so many great players. I do believe if he were 6'1, 6'2 this would not be a thread about him coming or staying, he would be gone. Man if I were him I'd be crunched. Your dream is right there before you and you have roughly 2-3 weeks to make a decision that could decide your fate. On the other hand, you have to opportunity to come back and play alongside a team that I think (with him involved) could make a run at the Final 4. Getting to the Final 4 with another solid season would definately increase your chances of becoming a solid 1st Round Pick. Prediction based on alot of variables considered: 85% chance he stays.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Well I liked Smotz||
game, but I am more siked about the offseason developments with Horford and McLimans. Mc can hit the three and horford puts on another ten to fifteen and he is gonna be a force down low. his injury had to be closely related to his bigtime added weight last offseason. If you put Mc in the weight room for another 10-15 like Horford coupled with McGary and Morgan and our biggest weakness becomes a strength. Couple that with Trey, THJ, Vogrich, GRIII, and Stauskas (who should see the floor...watch video if u dont believe) and you have a Big Ten Champion caliber team who should be better than this years squad. I cant wait. FWIW though, I hope all the best for Smotz, he will surely be missed.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Hey Roll Damn Tide||
How about a little insight on the reason why Poggi might not be a good fit (in his eyes)? If you get time.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||This is funny||
considering this guy is probably the first one to actually get caught doing it.2 Draft picks, 500K, not really a killer when you have that great of a QB. Looks like Drew is gonna get that contract extension now if he hasnt already.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Zeller???||
They have to be talking about big bro! If you want to be that big in the NBA with no jumpshot, you need more strength and weight.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Like Sullingers Game||
and hope he leaves but why no discussion of deshawn thomas. Has anybody been watching college basketball lately? That kid is lights out. I hope he goes before Sullinger.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||I read someone||
say that Michigan States procombats were ugly. I thought they were pretty nasty. What was awful was our road unis that day. It pains me to say this but I liked em. It doesnt matter what uniform you wear as long as Chip Kelly is there though. The recruits they bring in now will account for there games then and to my knowledge they are not going to be getting the quality recruits they have been getting since Brady took over.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||FWIW||
I would love to get a shot at USC in the Big House when Sugar Shane and Hopefully Ty Isaac are two years in the system. It would be about time that we see them in the Big House, especially for a night game.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Gotta root 4||
the Bobcats, Wolfpack, Wisky, and Indiana. They actually now have a legitimate shot with Marshall going down. Being from Ohio and a Michigan fan its easy to root against TSIO but I always had an affinity for OU. I think it stinks that NC State is in the same regional, I also like them right now. They match up well with everyone cause of their size and defense. Wisky and Indiana would help the B1G show out by knocking off 1 seeds so of course.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Not to be a douche||
but wtf is upvoting and downvoting and how do you do that?
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Want Both RB's||
Great teams are able to have this work. Wisconsin, Oregon, LSU, Alabama, USC. Throughout history all the good running games have all had more than one. Having two top 7 backs with a power back(Shallman-Peyton hillis type hopefully) and Norfleet (SLOT-just think Tavon Austin from West Virgina when they scored 70). Would love to have Gayle Sayers (Isaac) and Demarco Murray (Smith) in the backfield for the Maize n Blue. By the way Demarco Murray went pro and has a nice 4 yr/2.97mil deal with a 600K signing bonus. Man Smith runs just like him.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Will he||
get the chance to play right away? Dont we play them in 2012?
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Coach for Alabama I thought||
made a ill-timed call on the timeout with 2.2, sometimes you gotta let the energy of March Madness flow and let your guy go with the ball and I am surprised he didnt call the timeout with 4.5 to go to set it up. Seems like he has to live and learn but he'll probably be back, good coach all year long.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||I think one of the reasons||
that Georgetown is a 3 and Michigan a 4 is because the Ohio rematch. I am happy we have the 4 though cause I would rather play North Carolina than I would Kansas.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Significant||
but not as much as a Hensonless Carolina team would be. I already had Wisky in the 8 regardless of Melo or not. Bo Ryan knows how to win a few games in the tourney and you have to have some upsets. You dont have Henson for the 2nd round matchup and a team like Creighton could shock and awe especially with their ability to score.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||I would||
hold out for Isaac no matter what. Ty Isaac gives me comparisons of Darren McFadden when he was at Arkansas. Total game changer but can split out to WR unlike anything I have ever seen. Sometimes you have to be patient and take a risk by doing nothing. Be secure in the fact that this is Michigan. This is obsurd to be a supposed leader for this savage of a talent to let him possibly get away. DO NOT LET THIS ONE GO!! He is the type of player that makes OC's more innovative in their ability to call games and can you imagine having the Original Innovator himself, Big AL, calling games with this talent. OUCH for opposing DC's.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Someone on here posted about Justice Hayes||
Is there any chance a player with his athleticism can move out to Slot? It would be a solution to the lack of athleticism we have out there next year. It would also be something that Alabama wouldnt see coming.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||I dont understand||
why this kid is not in the top 5 overall for every recruiting service. Has anyone seen his film. Absolute beast!
