|1 week 3 days ago||Did you read the Spath article on TOS about Swenson shortly||
after the decommit?
Senior tape was 1/2 as long as junior tape. (My research)
Opponents no longer feared playing against him since intensity was reduced. Played to not get injured instead of striving to be the best recruit in the State of Illinois.
Did not come to summer camp.
That is enough for me alone!
|1 week 3 days ago||I appreciate your effort and viewpoint||
I've up voted you!
Oregon and Oklahoma are the overachievers according to their recruiting rankings who could have won a national championship with a little luck recently.
You can add Baylor and TCU to MSU as the overachievers who have maximized their performance despite mediocre recruiting rankings.
Nebraska at its height did it with their walk-on program. But that was almost 20 years ago.
Other than that you are right. If you are not consistently at the top of the recruiting rankings you are not going to win the national championship.
|1 week 6 days ago||My sons are named Brian and Andrew||
After QBs Brian Griese and Drew Henson. They were born 9-97 and 1-99.
It wasn't the only reason and I wasn't going to make it toooooo obvious.
Brian is now a freshman in UM Engineering School!
If you are going to use something too obvious I would make it a middle name so that it can be concealed, if so desired, by a middle initial.
Does anyone know what the U stands for in Bacon's name? Could it be Urban? Ulysses? A surname of some sort?
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||I only regret that Jemele Hill didn't make a more outrageous bet||
How can anyone watch that His/Her ESPN show is beyond me!
I was hard to watch a few seconds of that dribble. How can people like that even be employed?
She had to shine her cohosts shoes because she said she would if Harbaugh became the coach at Michigan. Unfortunately it wasn't .........eat his shoes or kiss his a-- ....
I would be embarassed if I was MSMoooo. Can you revoke a degree?
When she was at the Freep she wrote a BIG article about the possibilities of which teams could still be the football champs. Of course, she was wrong ............ and I emailed her the other options that she did not consider that could happen. All I got in a return email was "Oh, Thanks".
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This speech was accessible when Harbaugh||
was being mentioned as our possible coach. I believe it was a from a link on the Mgoboard a few weeks before his hire. After seeing it I was convinced that Jim would indeed return as our coach despite what all the NFL talking heads were saying.
I never doubted that he would have an immediate positive impact on our teams performnce.
The fact that the team continued to improve throughout the season, as was the case with all of Bo's teams, I realized what we have been missing since 2006.
But to my surprise he has exceeded even my expectations by thinking outside the box and pushing the envelope in recruiting.
The excitement is only beginning!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Read the Spath article on TOS||
It's a free article.
Did not attend the UM summer camp as requested.
Opponents noticed he played with less intensity so as not to get injured. They no longer feared to play against him. His senior highlight film is half as long as his junior one.
Told in nov to take all 5 visits.
BO pulled a scholly on a player that coasted his senior year also.
|3 weeks 8 hours ago||Couple of revisions are needed in your overview||
Backup to Gary is Tagaloa / Dwumfour
Word is Oregon is likely to go after defensive help and not try to replace McDoom with Crawford.
I believe Kaleke Hudson is in front of Jordan Fuller due to his versatility.
According to the MGoBoard post about Swenson, that has now been deleted, it appears via twitter he committed to Iowa State.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||You can't find a 'true' Bo hat||
Bo's hat did not have the skinny M that Harbaugh currently wears. Nor was it the fat one that one finds typically.
The best one I found was a '47' hat a couple of years ago. But the 'M' is still too fat.
You have to find a Bo picture to see what I mean. Here's a link
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Alabama had a 11 man rotation on their Dline!||
8 rotated at the 3 down positions and 3 rotated at rush linebacker, a standup position similar to Ojumudia / Jenkins-Stone.
You all seem to have forgotten that Godin is also available.
Can you possibly have too many?
Depth is a wonderful thing!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||It gives UM students a vandalism opportunity.......||
Let's spray paint the 0-38 score on the banner!
It has to be more fun then spray painting the sparty statue.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Anyone see both Concussion and PBS Frontline League of Denial?||
How does the movie compare with the documentary?
I have seen the PBS Frontline documentary League of Denial, but not the movie. Unfortunately the documentary is not currently scheduled on wtvs.org. nor is it available to be viewed online. It was last aired in October. One can usually see it for an extended window of time online at your convenience when it is being broadcast on the air.
Its quite sad and disturbing.
A must see.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Not a lot of large HS centers to pick from!||
Largest OL in HS usually plays tackle, then guard. Center is probably your smallest player on the OL. Stands to reason that HS guards and maybe even tackles need to be converted to center.
Plus there is only 1 center on the OL as compared to 2 tackles and 2 guards.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Drew Sharp - UM & Catholic Central HS Alum!||
This makes him even more of an embarrassment. Am I'm surprised? Absolutely not. I'm glad the link was to the Detroit Sports Rag and not the Freep. He needs to be driven out of town like Rosenberg!
Since I do not recall any positive article from him about anything. It only stands to reason it was plagerized!
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Cross country road trip||
I drove my VW Rabbit to San Francisco and back from here in 2-1/2 weeks and put 7000 miles on my car at age 24.
Drove and took slides along the way (14 rolls @ 36), driving sometimes till midnight. Not wanting to set up my new tent in the dark for the first time, I would sleep in my sleeping bag under a picnic table with a tarp thrown on top.
Visited college friends in Minneapolis the first weekend, visited a friend in SF who I met when traveling in Greece the second weekend and attended two weddings and receptions with him on the same day. Partied all night long getting back at 6AM.
On the way visited Teddy Roosevelt NF (ND), Glacier NP (MT), Portland OR, my birthplace, Redwood NP, Yellowstone NP, Devils Tower NM (WY), Badlands NP (SD).
Had a bear run across the road in front of me when driving through Glacier NP in the rain. Got within 100 feet of Elk and Bison in Yellowstone NP. Got within 50 feet of a momma moose with baby when camping in WY.
My most harrowing moment was driving along the Californa coast on US 101 at night ......in the fog! Visibility was maybe 100 ft. I was following the center line on the road religiously and all of a sudden it ...........disappeared! All I could say was O f---, O f--- ! Thank got the road was straight and the center line reappeared. I thought I was a goner.
While driving over the Golden Gate Bridge the fog rolled in. It was so eriee it looked like a scene from a horror movie!
I recall talking to two guys from NJ at a rest stop in NV one night on the way back. They were wrapped in their sleeping bags. I was clad in shorts and a T-shirt. I left them with the impression that all people from Michigan must be a human polar bears!
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Hot tip - Attend a football game with your son||
and sit in the student section!
I did it this year for the NW game. It was awesome. You have to pay an upcharge on the ticket at the athletic ticket office that your son can buy through a UM student site.
The only downside is you have to stand the entire game on the bleacher seats. But you can take breaks during TV timeouts and between quarters.
Much cooler than sitting any where else in the stadium!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Amen to Pescadero above plus.....||
You need to have compatible views about money, politics, and religion.
You need to be understanding, tolerant, and flexible.
Don't get married too young or too quickly.
Your wife will do things with you prior to marriage that she won't do with you later......
......and I thank God my wife is the most selfless person I have ever known!

and add an additional post to the 13984 posts about Michigan. Who obsesses about whom?

Can there be a worse combination for human development?
Even attending a Jesuit HS couldn't help him!
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Here's a bright moment for you long suffering Lions fans||
A replay of our gridiron heroes in the 1957 NFL Championship game!
Its the closest thing you are ever going to see to championship football out of the Detroit Lions!
|10 weeks 1 day ago||The constant theme that has been expressed by players||
in comparison to Jim Harbaugh and his staff through player interviews, that I have read on this blog, is that under Hoke they did not know why one player played over another, they never knew where they stood on the depth chart, and they were never taught the correct techniques.
That is a pretty poor testament for a head coach on any level.
Add to that, Hoke never was a coordinator. The only non coordinator I know that made a successful leap to head coach was John Harbaugh in the NFL.
|11 weeks 8 hours ago||They visit the graves of Bo, Ufer, and Yost on the grave walk||
As Ufer would say, "God bless his cotton pickin' Maize and Blue heart!"
Harbaugh must be my mental twin, I smash buckeyes after every UM - OSU game in joy or in frustration!
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I won a bet with a buckeye at work.||
This was back in the nineties before UM won the 1997 national title.
He did not know that UM won an undisputed national title in 1948. He thought Michigan had never won a national title, except for the early ones that Yost won, and was adamant about it. So I bet him $10 that they had won a national title after 1940. I took the $10 and bought my infant son a Michigan sweatshirt at the Mden. At the company picnic a couple of month later I had my son wear his Michigan sweatshirt and proudly showed him what I did with the $10 I won in the bet.

|12 weeks 2 days ago||Wait until Brian's UFR, Defense vs. Indiana||
on Thursday or Friday.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||That would be the 1996 UM @ OSU game||
Quick slant from Griese to Streets that resulted in a 69-yd TD in the second half that UM rode to a 13-9 victory over #2 OSU.
UM trailed 9-0 at the half.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||8 team playoff has always made sense to me||
Champs of the Big 5 conferences plus 3 more.
Being a conference champ does not have to rely on some other arbitrary subjective ranking.
How can that not be ideal?
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Poggi back to defense?||
I think we need him more on D than on O right now.
Was Kerridge playing today? I don't recall seeing him out there today.
|14 weeks 15 hours ago||Not every snap||
1/2 the first quarter is missing due to the ESPN idiots showing us TT vs. OSU game. My friend did not have ESPN 3 so I missed it too.
See replay of game on ESPN3 for missing 1/2 of first quarter.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Kareem was previously committed to Alabama.||
