|5 days 3 hours ago||People on here freak out||
every single year well before spring practice even starts because there are more than 85 guys in line for scholarships. There will be normal attrition like there is every offseason, whether for playing time, academics, personal reasons, legal reasons, etc. These are 18-23 year old kids, their situations change all the time. Yes, coaches may tell players to pursue other opportunities, but if I was an upperclassman and was destined to ride the pine I would want to hear that upfront from the coaches so I could do what is best for my future. This happens all over the country at every level of collegiate sports. Some people expect to have EXACTLY 85 scholarships accounted for at all times, but that is totally unrealistic, unless you want to end up with 80 scholarship players at the end of fall camp and hand out 5 to walkons that are not all going to be a Glasgow or Kovacs. Not a great way to compete for championships.
|6 days 25 min ago||Previous teams||
played what has been called "white boy" basketball which worked with a combination of shooting, grit, and awareness. Last couple years has been more soft prep basketball with a focus on perimeter offense and a major lack of physical play and defensive intensity. This squad is easy to play against because nobody makes opponents uncomfortable.

before should clearly recognize that as intentional contact. Maybe he didn't initially plan on lining up a hit (I think he was originally going to skate inside but Motte turned in his path), but when he saw there would be contact he tucks his elbow down and then drives through with his shoulder/elbow in order to level Motte. If Sturtz wanted to avoid a big hit he could have leaned out of the way/slid by more and rub past him instead, without driving through the contact.
|1 week 4 days ago||He didn't skydive||
just went for a little private flight, if that. The video only shows him sitting on the plane while its grounded. But the way things are going with all the attention given to recruiting it is probably only a matter of time until a skydiving commitment happens.
|1 week 4 days ago||Noticed that today.||
Great goal by Ronaldo, and Ronaldinho approves of that fan's coat selection
|1 week 6 days ago||His dad coached there||
when Chase was a young kid so he had a special connection there that was going to be tough for UM to beat even if there was a spot for him.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Donnal||
coming up big tonight doing the little things! Huge turnaround for him hopefully he continues to build on this.
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||because he takes||
correct info from actual insiders, adds his own personal bs to those facts to make them seem original and like he is in the know, then when that ends up being wrong he falls back on the initial stolen info saying that he was right about the gist of it, and suckers keep following him because he says things that Michigan fans want to hear and hope to be true.
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||He claimed||
his dad or uncle or something was an agent close with Harbaugh. Teddy took insider info from here and other sites and added his own (ultimately complete bs) backstories to that info, i.e., the agent was on a plane w/ Harbaugh to Ann Arbor to finalize a deal, but of course ends up in reality Harbaugh was in San Fran the whole time. He shut down his old twitter because he was getting called out and exposed as a fraud, he just said he deleted it because he "got in trouble for leaking info", but c'mon if that was the case why would he instantly turn around and started doing it again.
Nauta could end up in AA, like Harbaugh, but that doesn't validate Teddy unless the other parts of his claim come to fruition. And if you find this high schooler that easily believeable, I am actually a Nigerian prince in a bit of trouble, if you could send me US$10,000 and your bank account info, my wealthy family will send big reward US$1,000,000 for your gracious assistance!
|5 weeks 18 hours ago||Partridge and Brown coaching LB,||
Jay to ST/TE, Drevno OL/TE/OC and Fisch maybe getting bumped up to Co-OC? Would work out pretty good I think.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Any streams?||
Anybody got a stream link? I'm not finding any.
not great but better than nothing
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I don't care for his||
decision making and he is a pretty meh coach. Finally fired Lombardi which probably saved his job as Cooter's playcalling has been great and actually utilizes the offensive talent. Don't want to lose Austin as DC, if he wants a head coaching gig I'd prefer him over Caldwell. With a healthy team and improving the talent on both lines they should make the playoffs next year and if that doesn't happen Caldwell should absolutely go.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||It isn't exactly graphic||
thread makes it sound like his leg got snapped in half but it was a hyperextended knee when he tried to plant after getting shoved. Probably tore the knee up at least a little but shouldn't threaten his career.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Probably headed||
back south somewhere. Seems like he is just a shooter (36 of 41 shots taken from deep) and not a particularily great one either. More Vogrich than Stauskas.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Laval Lucas-Perry||
who then transferred to Oakland U.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||You're right||
not a single call has ever been properly corrected in the history of replay, including the Minnesota game this year that we lost, or wait, actually would have lost, but it appears as though there was indeed a correct review that helped Michigan win the game.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Yup that sequence||
has always been ridiculous, but now with almost every kickoff being a touchback it is so worthless to have just that "play" and then another ad break. Well, not so worthless for the NFL's wallet.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Is having slightly longer||
games really a problem though? It's not waiting in line at the dmv. It's football, something I enjoy. You won't hear me saying "Ugh, the football game is 10 minutes longer than they used to be, just finish already so I can go have some real fun doing the laundry."
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Replace||
'replays' with 'commercials' and i agree with you
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Well game changing||
incorrectly judged plays that weren't reviewable would have a negative impact, and I would say that win or lose impact is much more important than how smooth the game "flows". The natural flow to sporting events is already ruined by all the commercials anyways.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Newer report||
is saying he broke the window, went outside and climbed a wall, then fell 15 feet. Weird situation.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Great addition||
He looks like a playmaker with great instincts. Reminded me of Golden Tate as well.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Looks like||
a guy that is raw and not the most natural pass catcher but has the size, athleticism, and aggressiveness to develop into a good player. However any time a player from far away commits this early in the process, particularly those with a mediocre offer list early on, I don't get too attached as the coaching staff will certainly continue to go after big time players and more schools will come along with scholarship offers.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Nope||
and this year wasn't even Reynolds best of his career statistically. The Heisman isn't a lifetime achievement award. This wasn't the greatest group of Heisman candidates this year. Henry had a great oline blocking for him in a surprisingly weak SEC, he and McCaffrey averaged less than 6 yards/carry, and McCaffrey had only 8 rushing tds. If Watson would have been utilized as a runner more early in the season his numbers probably would have been the most Heisman worthy out of the group.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Jabrill did it||
several times every game and he got Harbaugh to do it in the tunnel before running out onto the field for a game early in the season.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Two extra games||
to do that though...
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Partridge got Jabrill||
to transfer to Paramus, so he probably has some recruiting chops. He also has been a college coach before and I would think he would have done some recruiting then.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Nice move||
I wanted the Tigers to get Maybin prior to last season but they went with Gose which was fine. Maybin had a solid season and I think he can still develop more and should be a good addition to the team and they didn't give up much for him.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||If he is healthy||
I say do it. I think Mone has the potential to go pro after 4 years anyways, very possible he has a huge year next year and burning the redshirt is a moot point.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah||
QBs often try to maximize yards gained, particularly on 3rd down and/or late in games and start sliding after a defender has already started initiating their tackle and cant stop their momentum and they should not be penalized for that, however it seems that defenders in that position often do what I call "torpedo-ing" which is diving head first and leading with their shoulder or helmet rather than a safer wrap up technique with arms out and head up seeing what they are hitting.
Looking at Bridgewater getting knocked out last week, he slid too late to avoid contact, but the tackle attempt is reckless. This type of tackle attempt is very common now, and it is not only dangerous for both players, it is also less likely to stop a ball carrier than a wrap tackle. If football wants to be serious about making the game safer I think this form of tackling should be banned.
