When Pepper's is attending UM and has played in several games?
|1 day 5 hours ago||Ok||
Pink mouth guards are a step too far. They look like a pacifier. Obviously not enough women in decision making positions in the AD's office.

Some small portion of Saban's salary is paid by the school. The rest is paid by the boosters.
And Alabama isn't the only school that does this. Before Saban was hired, when Alabama was wooing RR,WV's GOVERNOR worked the phones to raise the money to help keep RR at WV.

For several reasons

of that on this blog recently.

For example, Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald is also tight-lipped about injuries, only saying that it's an upper or lower body injury.
The interesting question is why did Michigan reduce the amount of info they'd release on injuries this year as compared to previous years? For example, last year Hoke would admit to player X having a boo-boo. I myself wonder if it has something to do with privacy issues. Supporting this suspicion is the article that Angelique(?) ran after the 1AM press release, explaining all the layers of review and signature the release went thru, inlcuding Shane Morris & his parents OKing the release of his medical info.
|1 week 1 day ago||Or maybe the lesson to take from Kill||
is that the internet was all Fire Kill! He can't win! Fire Kill! His illness is a distraction! Fire Kill! He can't coach effectively with his illness!
Then Minnesota beat Nebraska in 2013, getting the signature win that Kill believed the team needed. And this year they are already bowl eligible, for the 3rd year in a row, and are leading the Big 10 West. And now the internet is all what a good coach he is.
But you know what? Someone said this in 2011: "Jerry Kill is a tremendous football coach. He and I both have MAC ties, and he'll have his group ready." That someone was UM coach Brady Hoke. So maybe, just maybe, we should take what the internet says with a grain of salt, and give a little more credence to what coaches say about their peers.
|1 week 1 day ago||In last night's radio show, Jim B.||
specifically asked about Shane, and Hoke said that Shane is the backup QB for the MSU game.
|1 week 1 day ago||See PearlW's post.||
I agree, that's what Hoke said on radio last night.
You'll note that the only exact quote in Snyder's tweet is"some guys." As an aside, why would anybody on this board assume that anything from the Freep is accurate?
|1 week 1 day ago||Welcome back.||
I missed not having a recipe last week.
Best feature on the blog.
The recipes keep getting better & better.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yes.||
It's amazing howmuch similarity there is between the fans/boosters comments in these exmples and current Michgian fans/booster comments.
|1 week 1 day ago||Read maizemama's diary||
Those sound pretty much like the goals/metrics nussmier mentioned in his presentation at the women's football academy
|1 week 2 days ago||Bo had 2 heart attacks while coaching um||
The 1st in 69
|1 week 3 days ago||Read Maizemama's women's football academy diary.||
I don't think Hoke posted the sign reminding the players that MSU are the state champions because he wants to downplay the MSU game.
But I also think he isn't interested in creating bulletn board matriel at press conferences.
|1 week 3 days ago||Oh, I don't know||
Seems like hoke's ball state coaches did pretty well against 2006 michigan
|1 week 4 days ago||10 years ago includes 4 years of Carr.||
Shouldn't the Board's collective brain go tilt, since RR's "offensive genius" scored fewer points than "stagnating in the 2nd half of his career" Carr?
I suppose the more rationale board members would point out that MSU's coach during the Carr years was John L Smith. RR's and Hoke's teams faced teams coached by Mark Dantonio.
|1 week 5 days ago||Well, Woody did go for 2.||
'cause he couldn't go for 3.
|1 week 5 days ago||If you had read Heiko's interview with Borges,||
you would know that Hoke makes the call on 4th down.
|1 week 6 days ago||Hmm...I seem to recall that a certain||
Tackle had a bunch of stupid penalties during the 2010 season
|1 week 6 days ago||Don't know about the clipboard||
But I know that hoke does not stand apart from the coaches - there are too many pictures of him & matti son talking during the game
|1 week 6 days ago||What, in Schlissel's remarks at the||
Regents mtg, makes you believe such an abrupt, even reactionary, move would be made?
|2 weeks 4 hours ago||Actually, what may have more bearing||
Is Schlissel's remark that "There are a number of additional issues facing the athletics dept that will require a longer-term approach as we work to establish the right balance..."
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Per mlive story, one of those things||
Is reducing price of student football tickets
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I wasn't aware the Michigan's coaches said things like that.||
I thought it was the fan base.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I know, like they can talk.||
If your 8:00 calc & physics classes were anything like mine, the guys arived at the last minute, unshaven & wearing clothes that were maybe one step up from pjs.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||My understanding is that it's a long-standing tradition||
for the Slippery Rock score to be announced during games, and it's one of those inexplicble things that the fans have latched onto. And Slippery Rock gets a kick out of it.
I believe this will be the 2nd game Slippery Rock has played at Michigan Stadium.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This staff hasn't figured out any part of an offense in 4 years||
And maybe, just maybe the fact that there are 2, count 'em, 2 freaking seniors on offense this year, 1 of whom is a walk-on, has something to do with "hasn't figured out any part of an offense"
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Greenberg is a corporate shill.||
If's he's arguing for 2 SEC teams in the playoff, then that's what the suits at ESPN want.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||It was a high risk/high reward decison.||
Given the practice/school limitations the coaching staff knew that Gardner could only prep for 1 position: WR or QB.
Given the state of the roster, and a desire to win, was the best use of an athlete like Gardner (a) back up QB who only starts if the 1st string QB can't or (b) WR who's starting every game?
They went with B. Up until Nebraska, they went 5-2. Robinson gets hurt in the Nebraska game, and they have to play Bellomy, and they lose.
They switch to Gardner as QB the next game and go 3-2 (including the bowl game).
The fanbase is criticising this decision knowing what happened. But the coaching staff didn't know how the season would play out when they made the decision. Hoke is being criticized heavily right now for being a "dinosaur" and not being aggressive enough with his decisions (see field goal v. go for it on 4th down in the Rutger's game); how about giving some credit where credit's due wrt to the Gardner as WR decision? After all, even if may have cost UM 1 win, Hoke still lead the team to a better record than RR saw at UM in his 3 years.
