"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

It's all about the Premier League (EPL/BPL) if you want to really get to know class soccer. No other leagues even come close in comparison from top to bottom in terms of talent. Manchester City is my team. Whatever you do, don't root for Chelsea. Jose Mourinho is a complete d-bag of a manager.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||If someone on here really||
If someone on here really thinks that this goal is due to the defender being slow and not due to Gareth Bale's pace, you have serious issues and obviously don't follow soccer much. Gareth Bale is quite possibly the fastest player in the world. So anyone trying to make this about the defender being slow is an indictment to the class that Bale is. This wasn't his best goal ever, but under the circumstances, without Ronaldo, it is a great goal.

|1 year 47 weeks ago||Personally, I don't think you||
Personally, I don't think you can look at the bowl game much. We were down from the get go. Therefore, whatever kind of plan we had going into the game was shot because we were immediately forced to throw the ball. You think we wanted our True freshman QB in his first start throwing 40 times or however many he ended up throwing? This doesn't concern me much.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Interesting offer. I like it.||
Interesting offer. I like it. Interesting in that, Steve Lorenz just said the other day that Michigan wouldn't offer him, not because of on-field concerns, but off-field concerns. Maybe those finally got cleared up. Who knows. But I'm a huge fan of this guy. Much more than Enwere, no offense to him. Watched Jones make someone fall flat on their face in the UA game last night when they tried to tackle him.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||No evidence or anything here.||
No evidence or anything here. But just from pure speculation I would assume the '13 guys get the bulk this coming year. However, I think the '14 class of WR's all have star potential and therefore, down the road, I think the '14 class will go down as one of our best WR classes ever. They're all different receivers to me, which is exactly what you want in one class.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||I've been on the Shane||
I've been on the Shane bandwagon since he committed. I still want him to RS next year and let Gardner be our QB. I think they asre both capable high-BCS caliber QB's to be honest. Good problem to have. Some points about Shane last night that I wanted to comment on. Accuracy seemed improved on the intermediate throws. There were at least 3 other times that he hit Gallon in the hands or Funchess in the hands that they dropped. Shane also seems to have impreccable footwork in the pocket compared to DG. Shane actually steps UP in the pocket and slides left and right and doesn't take useless sacks. He is also a deceptively athletic kid, which I knew already but many people didn't. All in all, congrats on your first start Shane. The future is bight for him.

Countess and Taylor have both utterly shit the bed this game.

lol. How'd I know we'd still give up a first down? I didn't think it would only take one play though
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Been happy with Shane thus||
Been happy with Shane thus far. That is all I can say positive so I'll just leave it there.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||I just want to see the O-line||
I just want to see the O-line continue to progress. I also want to see Shane rip a few deep just for fun. But all in all, I want to see him be more accurate then he has been so far between his high school careers, camps, and this year. I'm excited to watch the future play tonight.

When I try to watch them it says they are private highlights and i can't watch them. Any way around this??
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Most impressive thing to me||
Most impressive thing to me was his tackling technique. He actually wraps up at the ankles. Hardly seem to see that anymore.

And I see Pepper's comments as someone just messing with the press and reporters. He knows he's coming here

Why are people surprised by this? No kidding Hand is going to recruit his friend and #2 prospect in the country to Bama? Ho hum. JP is going to be playing for Michigan.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||We're fine. JP and Crawford||
We're fine. JP and Crawford are going to be Wolverines. Mark it down. Everyone needs to relax a bit.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||My first comment meaning if||
My first comment meaning if you're this supposed to be wonder boy that committed to USC in the 7th grade, I feel like you should be the best person far and away in your own highlight tape. Your pretty much unknown 3-4* receiver who hardly anyone knows about shouldn't be outshining you in your OWN highlight tape. And no it's not because Malzone has wide open receivers. It's where he places the ball on almost every pass. I'm actually a fan of the hitch sort of throwing motion he has. Throwing motion is the biggest load of BS I'v ever heard. I'm sure people have heard of Matt Stafford. How does he throw the ball? It's side arm almost 75% of the time. Rich Gannon was the same way. There's a number of others too. Each person has his own preference. Mine is not Sills. It seems like he probably hasn't grown much as a QB since he got that offer in th 7th grade, which concerns me.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Also forgot to mention but I||
Also forgot to mention but I had family members go to watch one of their games earlier this year, all of which have coached football either in college or high school. They were going to watch Sills specifically. Said they were highly unimpressed with him. Said Canteen was the more impressive by a country mile with Watson actually 2nd ahead of Sills as well. And I also didn't tell them that Canteen and Watson were Michigan commits so they wouldn't be biased. So take that FWIW but not what I want to hear from people completely unbiased of the situation
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Thowing my opinion in here.||
Thowing my opinion in here. I've watched the kid a few times on tape and expected to be blown away. But I'm not. I'm not saying he's a bad quarterback by any means, but he looks like a 3-star kid on tape to me. I'm not a star hog either, but QB's and star evaluations tend to be fairly accurate. Especially ESPN's rankings. Luginbill does a good job of evaluating. Canteen impresses me more than Sills in his tapes. The WR should never outshine the QB that's supposed to be a high D-1 recruit. I just disagree with this offer at this time. I've watched most of who we thought were our top 6's tapes and Sills might be the least impressive to me of the those 6. I personally like Malzone, Kearns, and Johns, probably in that order.. Malzone just seems to have some sort of "it" factor to him and he looks like a 4 star quarterback to me on tape. Kearns has a lot of accuracy like Malzone, but I also think Kearns is helped by his receiver #2. I have no idea who he is but he looks like a high caliber D-! WR on Kearns' tape. Johns has potential, he has some athleticism to add to the position. Seems fairly raw though. So this is just my two cents. I'm not fond of the offer to Sills but I guess we'll see.

I think he knows offense because I've seen his offenses. He's not a good head coach but i think he's a great offensive coordinator and play caller. He's a pro-style guy. He can recruit his ass off. If he gains his player's respect he'll be fine. I don't think he will be here I'm just saying. Depending on the bowl game playcalling I'd like Borges to stay another year
|2 years 17 hours ago||Proud of DG. Played a near||
Proud of DG. Played a near perfect game. Stepped up in the pocket a couple of times even today. Saw him go through progressions a couple times as well. Only complaint is that he didn't go through progressions on the 2 pt conversion, I know it was designed for Dileo but he has to see he's not open. And I'm still not mad about that because he was great today. Anyone saying move hm back to receiver is dumb. When he has time he is a complete Quarterback. And everyone complaining about burning Shane's redshirt you realize he can redshirt anytime right??? He can redshirt next year and still be a 3rd year sophomore like he would be if he redshirted this year. Bellomy can back up next year.
|2 years 18 hours ago||I'm against the grain on this||
I'm against the grain on this one. The same plays have been called most of the season. The offensive line played well today. Gave DG time. When DG has time he executes more than not. Thought the game was called well start to finish. Agree with going for the 4th and 2 the first time. Agree with going for 2. Think the 2 pt call was fine. DG didn't read the defense. That's on him not Borges. Defense has to play better. 400 rushing yards is unacceptable. The future is bright. I'm on the fence about firing Borges. Funk yes still. Borges, I'll let you know if people open up. I would take Lane Kiffin given the chance. Either way, it's been a long season but I still love Michigan and every player on this team. Brady Hoke is our coach and should be. He's not Lloyd Carr 2.0. He was aggressive today and i loved it.
|2 years 18 hours ago||Not your best game defense.||
Not your best game defense. Missing a lot of our guys though. Ohio has a great offense. Not much we could do. Thought it was overrated all year anyway. We'll improve as our studs get older
|2 years 18 hours ago||Support the call 100%. We had||
Support the call 100%. We had a QB one hit from being done and Shane coming in. A placekicker who can only make field goals outside of 50. and a defense that have gotten wrecked by the run all game. Take your chance to win when you have it. The play though. That's the first time all game I saw DG not go through his progressions. He was going to Dileo the whole time. Other than that great game. Hate those motherfuckers with a passion but they played great as well. Go Blue. Fuck Urban Meyer
|2 years 18 hours ago||First time i haven't seen DG||
First time i haven't seen DG go through his progressions today. Fin with the call though. Play to win. Still fucking hate Ohio and hate Urban Meyer. Please win Alabama because I don't want these mother fuckers in the national championship game

When they score. And if we go down and score. I hope we go for 2. Because we won't win in OT. We can't stop them
