“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

I think in 2012 and 2013 the roster was a little disjointed with a mix of RR recruits and Hoke recruits, spread guys, pro-style guys, etc. 2013 especially had a weird feeling to it.
2014 should be a season where we see the roster mostly full of Hoke’s guys and guys that we should expect to see play together for 2-3 seasons. I think this will help these players step up and take ownership of the team.
I’ve heard athletes say that most if not all good teams they have been a part of were internally driven. Coaching, while important, can only get you so far. For some reason, last season I didn’t get the feeling that the team was together.
I also agree that they have a lot to prove this season and expect to see them play like this.

Must beat MSU. It's time they get taken down a notch or two, it's just time.

I think it's ok. I think he will eventually sign a NFL contract and play NFL football.

I'll second that. I've heard people saying "Meijers" for years.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Yup, that's the hard||
Yup, that's the hard part, that they didn't get anyone who could help them this season, which is what they should driving at. Because like you mentioned after this season some contracts will be up and this team will probably be losing some valuable pieces.
|5 days 13 hours ago||I remember those defenses||
I remember those defenses were characterized by multiple guys flying to the ball and hard hitting, something we've only seen here and there over the past 5-6 years. I have to see them get back to that style this season or I think my head will explode.

Bummer. Even more pressure now on Dave D. to find a good trade deal.

|5 days 14 hours ago||The Tigers are in a pinch now||
The Tigers are in a pinch now in regards to relief pitching, that is for sure and becoming very obvious the more the season goes on.
-Their 20ish million dollar gamble on Nathan seems to be a bust.
-Rondon’s loss for the season has been a big blow.
-Alburquerque is wildly inconsistent.
-Krol is just a pitcher.
-Coke, well everyone knows the struggles Coke has had.
-Thank god for Chamberlin.
They have tried or are trying just about every minor league arm they have to find some reliability. Their hopes now rely on these minor leaguers, a good trade or another arm coming back from surgery (Hanharan). They can’t win with the current relief staff. In the playoffs they can go to a 4 man starting rotation. Smyly can be back in a relief position at that point, but they still will need more/better help than him.

I'm still baffled on that one as well. The only thing that makes sense to me is it was a salary dump because they felt pretty strongly that they would be able to resign Max. If it wasn't related to Max then I don't really know how it helped the team.

Definitely. WR should be a position with great depth for this and several upcoming seasons.

Another "academics and athletics" win for 'Bama.

Yeah, Garcia, that's who it was! I completly forgot about him. The weird thing is, Garcia actually had some good years with other teams right around that time but Detroit tended to be a cesspool for QBs in those days.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Did you hear the story of||
Did you hear the story of when Drew Brees was on his way out of San Diego? I guess he had high interest in coming to Detroit. When some of the staff approached Millen about this he shot them down, saying they were all set at QB with Joey Harrington and Drew Stanton(EDIT: **Stanton wasn't on the roster at that time, but it was someone equally non-heralded).

I just hope that Dave D. does indeed have a plan because I have very little faith in Nathan at this point. Playoff games will be hard to watch. When he throws now, I'm just sitting there waiting for the shit to hit the fan and it usually does. The bad part is his contract and I think maybe that has alot to do with his long leash.

I was thinking I saw a blurb somewhere that he was told by OSU that if he didn't commit during the visit, they wouldn't keep the offer or something along that line. I could also be completely wrong.

I probably missed it somewhere, but what the story of his extremely short commitment to OSU?

I like Les Miles. I know a lot don’t for various reasons.
I think if he ended up as Michigan’s head coach instead of RR or if that was even possible, this program would be in a much better place. I’m not saying Hoke can’t get the job done, I think he can, it’s just that I think with Miles there wouldn’t have been much down times in the program.
I know, I know, ethics and all that but I think we would have piled up a lot of wins from then until now.

The mudslinging should get pretty furious between Russia and Ukraine with this one. Preliminary reports also stating 23 Americans on board. (EDIT: Perhaps still being confirmed)
