|29 weeks 5 days ago||Ross||
I had to stop reading after this line: "On the weak side, UM can go with one of two sophomores, James Ross III or Royce Jenkins-Stone. Ross seems like the favorite heading into the opener." Not sure what info I can get from someone who doesn't know Ross is 100% starting and a buddy star.
|48 weeks 4 days ago||Drew Allen||
A quick google searched returned Drew Allen, who's graduating from OU and looking to transfer. 3 Star recruit, I don't know anything about him, but he's looking at the likes of Maryland and Arkansas State, so I'd have to think he'd entertain Michigan.

when talking about uniforms, i specifcally mentioned penn state and notre dame. penn state added names to the back of their jersey's this year, which in my opinion is a much bigger change than a one or two off unique jersey per year. Notre dame has changed theirs more than we have.
I get not liking the uniforms, i just don't get the massive OMG freakouts that come with them. I watch football and cheer on michigan for the actual games, players and plays. Fashion doesn't play a big role in my fandom.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||I'm not sure we do now, or||
I'm not sure we do now, or did years ago (have the most recognizable and powerful brand in college football). Similar to how many fans can't imagine a recruit every wanting to go to another school over THIS IS MICHIGAN FERGODSAKES (TM), many people on this blog wear rose colored (or maize as it may be) glasses when it comes to our uniforms and the overall brand. There are many schools that have history and prestige simlar to Michigan. Notre Dame, Alabama, USC, Texas to name the most prominate. I agree the winged helmet is likely the most famous helmet, but our uniforms are no more recognizable than Penn States or Notre Dames. Everybody needs to relax on the uniform hatred.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Strange Coaching Setup||
OU seems to have a very unique coaching setup.
1 Co-OC is also the QB's coach
1 Co-OC is also the WR's coach
Center and Offensive Guard coach
TE and OT coach
DC is also the DB's coach
Assistant DC is the LBs coach
Special teams coach also coachs DEs
And then they have a coach for DL
I guess it's not that strange, but I've never seen the offensive line coaching broken up. Overall heirarchy seems to be complex too with all the Co-coordinators and assistants etc.

Agree. If this doesn't get tagged or front paged it should be reposted every couple days to keep it on the front page.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Yes, they did all play last||
Yes, they did all play last year, just like there are talented players playing significantly for the first time this year who will be high draft picks (like 5 star safety Clinton-Dix).
2/3 of their dline returned and their average rivals ranking went up with the one loss being a 3 star senior replaced by a 4 star senior.
They started a so, jr and 2 srs at linebacker last year, all 4 stars. This year it's 2 so's, 1 jr and a sr, all 4 stars with the exception of now the senior is a former 5 star.
They replaced 5 star Kirkpatrick with 5 star Milliner, Lester got a year older, they replaced a 4 star sr with a 3 star junior cb and now start a 5 star so at safety instead of a 4 star sr.
All that is to say I think this years Alabama D is just as experienced and talented as last years.
Like I said, they don't rebuild, they reload. They have more than 4 high draft picks on this years team, I just mentioned the 4 that are supposed to go in next years draft. Pretty sure Haha and Depriest will turn into high draft picks among others.

Actually Bolden played a majority of that game...yikes-er??

I said the numbers were comparable, meaning as a whole. I specifically pointed out the lower %.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Just looked up a mock draft||
Just looked up a mock draft (the first one from the google search) and they had 4 Alabama defensive players going in the 2nd round (Milliner CB, Lester S, Mosley LB and Williams DT). I'd bet that some of them move up throughout the year and the results are similar. I'll bet you $1.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||who said 42% was more or less||
who said 42% was more or less 56%? I specifically stated except %.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Arkansas (Wilson) had the||
Arkansas (Wilson) had the following stats:
22/35 for 63%, 185 yards, 2 TD and 1 INT
19 rushes for 17 yards, No TD
They threw the ball more, and with a much better percentage, but if you remove the PI INT and account for Denards rushing TD, I'd say the numbers are comparable. Michigan went for bigger shots, thus lower %, but had more yardage.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Why's that? What actual||
Why's that? What actual information do you have? It's disturbing how dumb our fanbase can be when it comes to other teams. You probably have nothing of substance to back your claim. Keep regurgitating your wisdom though.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Any backing info?||
Do you have any backing info regarding Alabama cutting corners in the classroom? Complain all you want about over signing or medical scholarships, but you probably have no idea about the classroom aspects of Alabama football. You sound like an ignorant sheep for much of your post.

When the f did afflalo come back to the pistons?
|1 year 37 weeks ago||I don't understand why GMs||
I don't understand why GMs (or maybe owners is more appropriate) don't understand bottoming out is good unless you're a destination franchise like LA or NY. It's incredibly hard to make it without a couple high lottery picks in a row like OKC if FA don't want to come to your team.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Well said||
|1 year 37 weeks ago||To restate what I've posted||
To restate what I've posted elsewhere, there isn't a solid, "franchise" SF out there in free agency anytime in the near future. They dont grow on trees. The only way to get one would be through the draft, and they're not lucky enough (or bad enough) to get a top 2 or 3 pick.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Pistons should amnesty Prince||
Pistons should amnesty Prince over Villanueva. Similar $$ per year, but Prince has an extra year. After next year (when the Pistons won't be much better than fringe playoffs) villanueva will be a valuable expiring contract.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||They wont have any money||
They wont have any money until 2013, when they'll have a buttload. Unfortunately that year doesn't any wing scoring. Best hope is for a big in free agency that year. Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum will be unrestricted that offseason as of now, and Serge Ibaka will be restricted. Pick up one of those, draft a solid backup big Thursday (Henson, Leonard) and you'd have a decent core along with Knight, Stuckey and Monroe.

|2 years 5 weeks ago||I was there one OSU weekend||
I was there one OSU weekend night when Kid Rock and some Red Wings came there. They were roped off in the back bar, and everybody was standing around and on chairs trying to see. Through the crowd I saw this short red head trying to fight his way up to the rope, and once he got closer I noticed it was Kris Draper. Nobody in the crowd really noticed him, until he got back with the others. Cool story I know.
Oh, and this one time, it smelled like s@#$ there...oh wait...

Wouldn't be suprised if Pipkins was say that just to make up for previously saying Diamond was committed, i.e. Diamond is coming, but Pipkins is helping build suspense/suprise.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Has anyone||
Has anyone on here actually succeeded getting an over the air signal in AA tailgating? I attempted to last weekend while tailgating at the lumberyard and got nothing. And before you ask if it was set up correctly, I did the same set up in Chicago a week prior and had 20+ channels perfect. I re-ran auto program each time and tried multiple antenna settings. I don't know what I could have been doing wrong.
As a back up we had a mobile hotspot, laptop and access to a slingbox, but with that many people using phones, etc the service was horrible and unwatchable.
I think the only way to go is satellite.

when i click on the link, it just has a graphic that says coming soon. Anybody else have this problem?
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Accuracy||
Does anyone think there's a chance past weights were inflated for certain positions, i.e linemen? Often heights are increased in basketball on official rosters, so might the same have been going on (or still for all I know) with weights in football? Maybe the linemen's weights were all bumped up 5 or 10 lbs under RR and that explains why there are no real gains from '10 to '11. Or do they release new weights every spring as well, so we'd have a baseline under Hoke?
