...we can take credit for a lot of guys. I always thought of Jon Ritchie as a Michigan player even though he transferred to Stanford.
|3 min 13 sec ago||Pretty sure Jamie would be the lead guy||
Jamie was pretty entertaining back in the 90s on WTKA. Hopefully Marcus just needs more seasoning. Desmond has come a long way from when he debuted on ESPN.

Too bad they were for the other team. I'd like to see Rudock be first to replace Stafford on Saturday night and play most or all of the last preseason game. They should only keep 2 QBs and you know what you get with Orlovsky. Might as well see if Rudock is ready to be the backup.
Also, I'm sure that if we cut Orlovsky, he'll still be available midseason if necessary.

I know JL was easy to ridicule, but he was close to beating us on a few occasions. He also left Dantonio with some talent. I want them at Bobby Williams levels of mediocrity.

Don't worry about the negs. If we had three commits instead of decommits in the last day, you'd be upvoted to Vahalla.
This, Oregon Trail handicapping the B1G race and Clint Copenhaver have been nice distractions from the recruiting news.
|14 hours 5 min ago||One thing (or two things)||
1. This seems like one of the most sincere decommittment posts I ever read. I don't know why, but it seems like when you tout some of the benefits to the school, it reads differently.
2. Also, the kid has talked so glowingly about our school that I could never say a bad thing about the kid. I hope his mom can make the trip up here just so she can lay eyes on what he saw.

at the end of OT season. If we beat MSU and OSU this season, Brian can sell We Beat MSU & OSU shirts with some of the proceeds to go to the Hatter retirement fund.

Mom is going to win out unless they can get her up on campus. If they can get her on campus, then it'll be game on again. With Harbaugh, the academics and Mama Gwen, I believe they could sway her mother.
|1 day 2 hours ago||You just made me a conspiracy theory believer||
But I don't think it was a coach. I believe a fan would do it, just like the one who tried to call up Rashan Gary before NSD.
I'm sure there's an Auburn fan out there that wants to hit the Powerball so they can offer some kids $$$ to go to Alabama, just to call in an anonymous tip about a Bama bagman giving out cash.

If we land DPJ and Nico, we'll be more than OK.

If I re-run the simulation enough times, it'll be Hawaii gameday before you know it.

Nothing serious. Just the kind that puts you down for about 20-30 seconds before you jog off the field.

I didn't know much about the health issues you faced or are still dealing with, but I applaud your perseverance and determination while dealing with the forklifts of your life.

From his true freshman season, you could tell that Denard had a strong arm. Imagine Denard with proper mechanics.
After watching Devin carve up ND and OSU, not to mention almost winning the bowl game against S. Carolina, I fully believe he would've been a Day 1 draft pick if Harbaugh was his coach.
|1 day 13 hours ago||I can watch the Colorado Hail Mary||
I look at it as just another reason why college football is GOAT. It also helped that we lost to an undefeated PSU team, Wisconsin and OSU. So it was part of a pretty crummy season.
Dave Brandon was the REASON for a pretty crummy number of seasons.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Could the same be said for swimming?||
I'm speaking specifically to the fact that they are world class athletes. There is a different sports culture but also less opportunities available to kids in different socio-economic situations. Growing up in Detroit, just about every high school had a track team. Maybe two schools (CT, MLK) had the $$$ and facilities to have a swim team. I'd love to see more Olympic sports in the city schools (and ice hockey), but that costs $$$ that is not available.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Carl Lewis should be in the conversation||
Because Poor Damn Carl Lewis actually won gold in the long jump in the 1984, '88, '92 and '96 Olympics. And he was competing against juiced U.S.S.R. and German teams...and Ben Johnson. He also set world records in the 100m and I think 200m.
IAAF named him World Athlete of the Century. Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps deserve all their accolades, but Carl Lewis was slaying the competition in a pre-ESPN dominated world.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Has to keep his head up||
His highlight reel before the injury shows his potential and ACL injuries are not the career ender that they used to be. Even if he does not start his career at his dream school, all of his goals are still in front of him.
If he graduates early, it's possible that he could have at least two years of eligibility as a redshirt junior. That dream school can still be in play.

If he comes back, he would get expert care plus be near his loved ones.

That's not healthy. I hope he has all the success in the world, just with about 50 less lbs so he can enjoy it (life) longer.
|4 days 11 hours ago||He's not a coach||
He was suspended, just like the Nebraska WR coach. I guess they could make Minick not work in the stadium on game day, but it does not feel like the same situation.
|4 days 12 hours ago||None of this back and forth happens...||
...if the swimmers don't piss on a gas station wall and break a sign. It seems like the effect is getting a whole lot more attention than the cause. There would be no guns or a $10K payment to get out of the country if these guys would've peed in a toilet, or at least hit the toilet seat and went home.
|4 days 13 hours ago||It was Herbstreit in 2006||
He tried to clarify it by saying he was talking only about offense, not special teams. The numbers support his statement, but we didn't need his production with all the other weapons on offense. Herbstreit, for an analyst, showed a pretty limited understanding of Steve's role on our team.
|4 days 13 hours ago||What person would say that about Harbaugh?||
You may have to correct them and say we're talking about Jim Harbaugh, not Jack Harbaugh.
I don't say this as a badge of honor, but the Gabby/Lochte comparison is why I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account. I don't want to feed the trolls just to prove a point online.

I personally think that whoever was in our uniform in The Waterboy deserves a mention.
