Wow. Great get by the staff, probably most important to get after KLS given WR recruiting lately.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Demetrius only looked good||
Demetrius only looked good because (a) michigan was loaded with future NFL players, including yours truly, and (b) his competition was Michael Taylor, who was really a wishbone QB. Demetrius was...mediocre.
51% completion percentage and basically as many INTs as TDs.

Don't want to post premium content, but Harris does seem to be trending away as well. Need to win on the field.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Jashon Cornell||
Everyone is wishcasting that Cornell will be a dominating speed rusher...however, he is also up to 270 lbs now and reportedly has lost some edge quickness as a result. Both these guys seem like SDE/DT hybrid types now -not saying they aren't still elite prospects, but we should look elsewhere for the dominating WDE pass rusher.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Zimmerman||
I take it from the lack of mention that the Stephen Zimmerman ship has sailed - true? Why?
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Zimmerman?||
What happened to Stephen Zimmerman - was interested at one point. No longer?
|19 weeks 1 day ago||coaching||
The last few years don't recommend the coaching received by either the OL or the D Line - hate to say, but true. Gotta wonder if that is why Mattison and Hoke are no longer coaching the D Line - we'll never know if they are willing to look at themselves as not having created success, but I will say if that is what happened, I think it would bode well for the future that they recognized the issue and remedied.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Lindsay UFR?||
More importantly, when will we get a UFR on Lindsay's 4 starts?
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Too late?||
Too late for the survive and advance posbang? Never a doubt.
Now, let's go Hoos!

I'm not a labor lawyer, but seems to me one of the most significant benefits in this for the players is their eligibility to require workers comp to be paid in the event they are "injured on the job".

winning with class...not much more you can ask for beyond that...
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Kennard...||
...such a Duke-sbag
Once Beilein delivers a natty or two in the next few years, all the 5*s are belong to us.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Tennessee will get a beatdown||
Tennessee will get a beatdown on Friday like a couple of years ago - Morgan and Horford will do their thing and the offense will be humming, then revenge against Louiville on Sunday! I'm not betting against Beilein with a week to prepare - best tourney coach ever.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Yes||
Wish I could up vote you
|21 weeks 3 days ago||OSU||
OSU has a class coming in that should make them fairly scary - Indiana isn't nearly as concerning (especially with Crean)
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Duke||
Duke is the consensus leader - anything else would be a surprise
|25 weeks 5 days ago||What I'm hoping is that Nuss||
What I'm hoping is that Nuss at OC imports what I think is the Alabama way - to figure out the base plays that the team executes best and drills those a zillion times, and then uses different variations off those base plays to create hesitation in the defense. It seems clear from last year that multiple blocking schemes and formations aren't going to help - line up and let the OL's muscle memory take over and use those 4/5 star physical talents to impose on most defenses. Will that present issues when it comes to MSU or OSU? Maybe, but 10-2 looks pretty good right now.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Implication of 2015 DE offers||
My guess is that the raft of additional DE offers for 2015 indicates one (and maybe/probably both) of the following:
1. Staff believes McDowell is gone
2. Staff not confident in shot with Jashon Cornell.
Am I reading too much into this?
|32 weeks 5 days ago||It is my fondest hope that||
It is my fondest hope that Dan Snyder decides he needs to make a splash with a big name and gets Urban to go coach the Skins. I'm not too proud.
|37 weeks 2 hours ago||Enthusiasm||
From The M Block: Fort Bend Austin running back Vic Enwere: "It was cool I guess."
Clearly flipping any minute.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||Alex Bars was a disappointing||
Alex Bars was a disappointing miss. Give me a class full of high quality tackle types and they can play guard if they don't turn out to move as well in space. Vice versa doesn't work.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||Out coached||
I think there are a lot of factors, youth is certainly one on the offensive line.
However, I don't know how you watch that game yesterday and come away with a conclusion other than that we were out coached. I'm not looking to fire Hoke and the defensive side did an OK job, but offensively we were just outcoached by Dantonio and Narduzzi.
Move the pocket, misdirection, more bubbles, 5 wide to spread the field, hurry up...something. There is no way this team should look that bad. Losing I understand, MSU is pretty good. But not that embarrassment.
|43 weeks 4 days ago||Bosch was the key||
I'm a Joey Burzynski fan given how well he's done to rise from walk on to starter, but the first couple series he was getting beaten regularly. When he went out and Bosch came in, it became a different game offensively - I watched Bosch on many of the plays and he seemed to be largely terrific.
Next week will be the real test - if a line of Lewan-Bosch-Glasgow-Magnuson/Kalis-Schofield can open a few holes and protect Gardner next week so we can put up at least 20 pts., I will be optimistic that the storm has passed. With a decent offensive line I think the offense would roll.
|43 weeks 6 days ago||Hey Al||
“I think all play-callers will run the same play if they have success,” Shurmur said. “Sometimes developing a tendency is a good thing. That means you’re good at stuff. I’ve heard that said once before, you know, but then of course you’ve got to be able to make it look like one thing and do another, as well.”
Philadelphia Eagles OC
|49 weeks 3 days ago||I believe that spots will||
I believe that spots will loosen up by a fair amount by the end of the season (really by the end of '14 spring practice)...
I count maybe 4 on the roster that may not be granted a 5th year, plus maybe 5 transfer candidates in search of PT. I won't name names out of respect for the kids, but I think there will be another 3-6 spots or more opening up for the next two classes.
|50 weeks 3 hours ago||With all these critical||
With all these critical recruits in for the game, better make a good showing on the field (thankfully I believe we will).
|50 weeks 4 days ago||Would love to see him picked||
Would love to see him picked up by the Eagles - their safeties suck and someone who doesn't blow assignments or miss tackles would be an upgrade.
|51 weeks 1 hour ago||LeSean McCoy? Yes, please.||
LeSean McCoy? Yes, please.
|51 weeks 3 days ago||Upvote||
Upvote for "could've"...clearly a UM grad. You have renewed my faith in humanity, however briefly.
|51 weeks 5 days ago||I would think Drew Brees||
I would think Drew Brees would be up there.
Woodson, Peyton, Montana, Steve Young, Elway, Ray Lewis, Aaron Rogers would also be good choices.
