|5 years 42 weeks ago||Great article Brian||
At least there is somebody out there who will take it to those guys that just want the headline to be about them. I'm afraid we will never see the end of Drew Sharp unless people stop going to the freep or listening to whatever he wants to say to get a rise out of people.
Be ready for his next positive article so he can qualify his arguments with his next 10 articles that are negative..................to tell us he does have positive things to write about UM. Sure Drew.......................
|6 years 1 day ago||Yes he will||
|6 years 5 weeks ago||ironic||
if you think about the incident that happened with McFarlin.
|6 years 7 weeks ago||Sounds like you can't tolerate pain||
Did it to both of mine and was going full strength 6 months on one and 10 on the other. SOunds like you just couldn't stand the pain, I was putting pressure on my knee the same day of the surgery wuss.
|6 years 7 weeks ago||Got what he desevred||
he will be able to play again.
|6 years 18 weeks ago||Is that better?||
Guess you must of already knew.
|6 years 18 weeks ago||Just wanted you to see how you felt about RR doing it||
and then realize it was Bo who actually did it. I bet some were like what the hell and then to see it was Bo doing it made it ok, imo.
|6 years 18 weeks ago||Are you always on?||
Geez it is fantasy football and he only got 30 days in jail.
Maybe you think about Mike Valenti too much and should start listening to wtka.
Don't really understand the crush some UM fans have for him....
Proly been on here longer then you btw.
|6 years 18 weeks ago||Lead Foot Stallworth||
Yeah I know it is kinda harsh, but is true?
|6 years 22 weeks ago||In the rivals article||
it also said that other coaches were on him about how Fat Charlie wouldn't be there much longer. Didn't say he thought about it much, but why mention it.
He also hadn't told ND yet or been in contact with Charlie in awhile, which was suprising with how highly he is rated.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||These are his first two recruiting classes with only||
a half year for the first one. I would wait to make a full judgement on the way he recruits over the next few years because I think it will be different than the first two. Just saying it is easier to look at Carr and how he recruited here over his long career, than a year and a half for RR.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||In a chat last night||
a mod did confirm with UM that Fitz has indeed qualified as he has been saying. JT is right there with his Ohio test and Gallon is the biggest concern right now, but only needs 1 point on his ACT and he is in, FYI.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||best I could find|
|6 years 23 weeks ago||"these type of post"||
Been on here awhile it is always funny when you just put something out there for fun so people can kick it around and discuss. People on boards sometimes get so serious and caught up in what they read on the internet, it is funny.
I think Fitz will leave his mark on UM and believe he will go on to the NFL. They are Michigan last time I checked and put good players in the NFL. Not like I'm saying a two star guy with a horrible film is going to Grand Valley and on to the NFL.
Just looking at his video and the tons of others every day, he stood out more to me than any other guy, IMO. Sure you can have a different opinion, say it. I'm making a guess cause I like him. Guess we should all fall in line and never try and spot the guys who you think could be amazing.
Sure he hasn't played yet, I know that. On a $ board though it did say he was telling others he qualified, fyi.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||Nice to see Fitz telling||
people he has qualified if it is true. I really think he will be very special. Now we just need to hear the good news from the coaches on him and Gallon to be totally sure they will both make it.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||No||
No. I like Ben Gordon but that seems like to big of a contract for his play. Although Joe D did take Darko over numerous other stars. I like Joe D, but that was still a pretty bad pick with so much talent in that year in the draft.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||Good luck to him||
He is still young enough to get out of his situation hopefully people will helop him through it and not shy away.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||He shouldn't of waited so long I guess||
It is nice to see how recruiting changes over the course of a year with a new staff. Better get on board now or be left in the dust, except for any top 100 guys. There is always room for them.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||The thing about how Gardner runs is that||
it is a lot like Pryor (sorry but they have the same body type) in that they take long strides and it makes them look like they are running slower than a small guy who runs just as fast. Gardner is very fast and all the times and camp showings are more than proving it, even if it may not look like if when watching.
I do also worry about him carrying the ball out there and making sure to switch the ball to the outside hand on some of the runs. I think RR will be able to help and he still has plenty of time to get better over the next two years.
I was one of the people who thought Tate would be the starter as long as he was here and healthy, but the more I hear and see of Gardner and his amazing abilities it makes me wonder.
It is great to see RR start to stack up the talent at QB and other positions, it will pay off soon
|6 years 24 weeks ago||Burning the red shirt positives||
Brian makes the case that he doesn't want Fitz to burn a redshirt, I have to disagree with that. He needs to be out there if he can prove he belongs, like I think he will. RR needs to win this year and having him out there ready to play really increases the chances of UM winning, IMO.
Also not burning the red shirt should help us in the long run with recruiting. I can see RR telling recruits that he was true to his word and let Fitz play because he worked hard and earned it. This will build the trust between the recruit and also make coming to UM that more inviting because as highly rated players go, they all believe they can prove themselves and play as a freshmen no matter who is there. At least the really good ones do.
This is just my two cents on it, just take the track record of the backs Michigan has had the past few years and there always seems to be a few injuries that put them on the sidelines for a few games. With McGuffie gone Fitz will have to play this season because the injuries will happen.
You never know it could be a Smith and Fitz running the back field by the end of the year. I really hope not though and would be very suprised as I think Minor is going to blow up, IF he can stay healthy.
|6 years 25 weeks ago||Caption||
Holtz: I hope thissss pen is water pooooooof.
|6 years 25 weeks ago||Amen||
|6 years 26 weeks ago||It's funny because many of the reports||
from very good insiders that I read say Cox was looking very good in workouts and one of the better backs at catching the ball and turning up field.
Like others on here have already pointed out, look at RR's past and how he has used big backs.
The more I hear of GBMW and what is on the blog, the less I think of their insider info and opinion. Maybe he does go to defense someday, but I would like to make a bet with them and I'll go with him sticking to offense based off of everything I've heard this spring.
Would be nice if you could make posters of whoever on the interwebs put their money where their mouth is to back some of the things they put out there.
|6 years 26 weeks ago||Yeah letting those weak goals in||
by MAF wasn't a reason at all right?
|6 years 26 weeks ago||It's times like this I'm glad I have rivals||
Don't lose to much sleep over this fyi.
|6 years 26 weeks ago||Gotta love||
the glass house and how people so quickly forget the fab 5.
Violations or not, just beat them RR.
|6 years 27 weeks ago||Exactly||
|6 years 27 weeks ago||What is up with the picture?||
A guy takes a still picture of the Detroit Fox Sports feed, and then wants credit for it because 97.1 put it up? I understand giving people credit for their work, BUT really how hard is it to take a picture off the TV?
Maybe it's just me? Just sounds like crying over spilled milk.
Glad to see the recruits JB is going after are also seeing their ranks get better and better. I really hope and think the same will happen with many of the recruits that RR has gone after and are three stars at this point.
|6 years 28 weeks ago||Damn you Corwin Brown||
If we are ever able to add him to the staff or get him out of the Midwest (highly doubtful), it will be a great day.
|6 years 28 weeks ago||Lawyer Team||
Keller has retained says these guys are "pretty big time" and that if they "didn't think this suit had merit, they wouldn't be wasting their time on it."
I'm sure EA will have a team that can get down to business as well. With so much money at ri$k they may even have to go to Jackie Chiles.
