Apparently that is the only way to get those chickensh*t domers back in the Big House.

Hopefully now it works out as well for us as it did for USC with Fargas. Sucks it took nearly 15 years though.
|39 weeks 3 hours ago||Very much agreed. Pass||
Very much agreed. Pass catchers are the least of my worries when it comes to this offense. DG will find a way to have a solid year (IMO), but the running and the blocking are my major concerns.
|39 weeks 3 hours ago||No doubt, but that is the||
No doubt, but that is the story practically every year in college football. There is always a bunch of stars that need to be replaced with unproven players. Having a solid WR/TE returning is very positive. There is bound to be someone that steps up between Canteen, Darboh, Norfleet, Chesson, or maybe another RS frosh, or true frosh.

But you only have 5 faces and 6 categories.

You would be hard pressed to find a place cheaper than Champane's Wine Cellars on Chicago Rd in Warren, MI. Not sure if it is worth the drive to you though.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||This would be the only time I||
This would be the only time I would ever listen to 97.1 for anything other than game broadcasts. Think they could pair him with Wojo special just this time?

Was this sarcasm? Cam Gordon is done.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||So... only 1 State of||
So... only 1 State of Michigan player in the top 100 and just barely checking in at #90? Is Michigan bare in 2015? I know it isn't exactly a talent rich state, but this seems pretty bad. Normally there is at least 1 - 5 star or a few pretty close from my recollection, right?
|1 year 12 weeks ago||I guess if you look just at||
I guess if you look just at his WR stats on a heavily run oriented offense, you could say that. If I remember correctly that when they did pass, he was a major target and got great numbers from it. On the other side of the ball, I remember him having some great defensive statistics.

I think we need a new banner tagline...
Jerks will be banned?
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Why is it that when TomVH||
Why is it that when TomVH says buckle up, he is praised... but BB gets hammered by the same morons (maybe?) when he says basically the same thing?
Personally, I like looking forward to it. I definitely like it better than announcement dates by a known recruit, which seem rarely go Michigan's way.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||IF they beat UNC this||
IF they beat UNC this weekend, yes. If they lose, the lose the tie breaker to GT I believe.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Correct me if I am wrong, but||
Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe the computers would reflect a Winston-less FSU (which mostly rank FSU #1), so the human polls would have to drop FSU by historic levels to make the difference up.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I am not rooting for it,||
I am not rooting for it, believe me. I am just baffled by the BCS and could see this happening, since the SEC hype machine that you mention is amazingly strong. It would be a disgraceful event if it happened, but it appears to be plausible based on the current situation.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I don't doubt that, but||
I don't doubt that, but Auburn also gets Missouri to pad their resume. This is obviously all hypothetical, but valid.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Fat Tire getting 4 stars is||
Fat Tire getting 4 stars is beyond my comprehension. I can think of 20 ambers off the top of my head that beat the crap out of Fat Tire. It is by far the most overrated beer in craft beer nation. I understand it is made to appeal to the masses and convert macro fans, but still... 4 stars????
And to those that love Hopslam, cheers! I would include Bells Expedition Stout and Three Floyds Zombie Dust in that group also.

Now you have Natty Daddy.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||So what does he deserve to||
So what does he deserve to get paid? What do the rest of the players deserve to get paid? If someone at USC, Michigan, Alabama, etc has a Heisman winner and that jersey sells, how much of it is the school, how much is the player?
My wife's #16 jersey may have recently been worn by DR, but it had its ties to Arrington and Navarre before him. If I buy the #1 jersey, who gets that money?
There are WAY too many variables to start paying amateur players. College athletics will be ruined when these players are going to have to start hiring agents to negotiate for them.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||How many players make a U||
How many players make a U millions of dollars? How do you discern how to pay those amateur players? How do you define exactly how much that athlete made the U and how much that is worth in pay? There really is not fair system. The answer is go pro. "Jack" may be getting paid the same now, but he won't when the star athlete goes pro and he doesn't. Same as college, the ones that do great and can convert these skills they continued to develop into great things get paid more when they leave and go pro (in a general sense).
Anyone is more than welcome to correct me if I am wrong here with my example, but say a research student at a U comes up with some novel way to cure some disease, or track terrorists through satellite, or whatever. It makes the U millions. Does the student get the money too? How about all the others that had a part in it?

I guess I am blind, because I see every single LB blocked.

And Toussaint missed a large hole in the middle of the line with a small cut to the right. Could have made a 2 yard loss into a 6+ yard gain, likely more.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Wishful thinking. Losing||
Wishful thinking. Losing both tackles, RB, and favorite target is difficult to overlook.

Yeah, completely off base here. A pro-style QB that can also run will always be in demand.

I think he is referring to some chick named Kharman. There's actually quite a few on Facebook.

You just reminded me of how bad that home slate is next year. Yeesh!
