Scrappy lunch pail kind of guy. Real high character, great teammate.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I'm not so sure||
I'm not so sure that's true one way or another. It does, however, sound good for Roquan Smith and that's what's most important here. I'll be happy for him wherever he ends up.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, fall in line. You're||
Yeah, fall in line. You're not allowed to think that way.
You don't want your reputation, relationships, and employment prospects ruined for simply stating an opinion that goes against the herd? What are you, some kind of coward?
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Did you know?||
Did you know that Tom Zibikowski also boxes? Tom Zibikowski is a boxer.

Anyone who doesn't "support the troops" isn't a real American.
Gtfo with that shit. It's just as as asinine now as it was 10 years ago.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||WELLLLLL||
Hoke is still the coach, Brandon is still the AD. It won't stop until both of those things are no longer the case, nor should it. The fans don't want their discontent "noticed" they want change and they want it weeks ago.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||That's been my pick||
That's been my pick and I've been saying it to anyone who will listen. It's usually met with "who?" He's the next Brian Kelly, and he's not a complete asshole. He's 46, successful and knows the state.
A fiery, young, up-and-comer from Miami(OH) wouldn't be without precedent....
|22 weeks 5 days ago||So sick of the Harbaugh crap||
So sick of the Harbaugh crap, it's not happening. Neither is Les Miles - which is good because it's a terrible idea.
No legit, current BCS/Power5/whateverit'scalled head coach is coming here either.
Who's left? Unproven guys.
Chuck Martin is the answer.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||No||
No. He dead now. RIP in peace Shane
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Or||
Or, Michigan could have called a timeout and gotten Gardner back in. The ref even gave Hoke an eternity before starting the play clock, going "Are you fucking kidding me?!?
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Edit||
Edit: Nevermind. Not worth it.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Twice||
Twice. He inherited a talented Florida team from Zook, who was a phenomenal recruiter.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||Is this because||
Is this only because #2 is the obvious choice for the next legend jersey, though? I wouldn't bet against it happening in the near future. Wow factor, added value proposition, etc. etc.
|52 weeks 6 hours ago||What's most amazing about his||
What's most amazing about his 7 Norris trophies is that he probably should have won 8 or 9 of them instead. He won the Norris trophy 7 out of the 10 years it was awarded between 2000 and 2011. A strong argument could be made for him winning it any of the four years previous to that when it went to Leetch, Blake, MacInnis, and Pronger. He just wasn't putting up the flashy offensive numbers at that point in his career yet. He was far more solid defensively than any of those guys.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||It isn't, but...||
It isn't, but by default it seems to be the case. I'm not aware of any teams running big, twin TE and FB sets up-tempo regularly. It's mostly spread outfits.
I kind of wonder if it would work though. How damaging could Stanford's offense be with Indiana's tempo?
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Does there have to be?||
Does there have to be? I don't know that an exhausting study needs to be done, it seems like a logical conclusion to me. On every play there is a chance of a player being injured. More plays, more chances. Isn't it that simple or am I missing something here?
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Interesting line of thought||
I had never thought of the Miami/Ross thing before. I'd much prefer to play Florida there than another game at Jerryworld. I doubt they would go for such a thing though, just as I'm not sure Michigan would play at Soldier Field. I can totally see a Boston or NYC thing happening though. Interesting thought.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||At least Russia only has to||
At least Russia only has to embarrassed about this for the next two years. This is just the appetizer to main course of clusterfuck that will be 2016 Rio.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Re: Lloyd||
This isn't the same as what Lloyd Carr allegedly did, it's not nearly as bad. These are kids making a major decision about the next 4-5 years of their lives and beyond. The head coach who recruited them was retired, he may be a bit upset and is telling them to take a good look around before signing anything.
That's not nearly as bad as doing the same thing to players already in the program - in some cases for years.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||....and there it is||
Rape culture. I knew that buzz phrase would be coming if you posted long enough. Your borderline hysteria gave it away.
The overall theme of your argument seems to be that a young man's default position is rape. Only by using every conceivable opportunity to point out rape culture can we correct this.
"Hey don't forget fellas, no raping!"
It's pretty damn offensive to those of us who know rape is wrong, and who raise sons that know rape is wrong.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||But...||
But but but RichRod beat Georgia!
I couldn't care less what a coach did at a Mickey Mouse school in a Mickey Mouse conference. Put a Michigan football team on the field that progresses instead of regresses from week to week or gtfo.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Good points, but I can't||
Good points, but I can't recall multiple screens in every game. Off the top of my head I only remember a failed tunnel screen against PSU as well as a throwback and WR screen against Indiana. Confirmation bias on my part, or have there been a lot of others?
|1 year 25 weeks ago||This reeks of bullshit||
This reeks of bullshit to me. Some asshole brah tries to be edgy thinking he's funny, rightfully gets heat for it, and then tries to rationalize his way out of the hard spot he put himself in. He wasn't trying to draw attention to anything but himself. Fuck him and his "Michigan difference" arrogant grandstanding. He's an embarrassment.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Odd||
Odd that there's one on offense and three on defense. Assume there was a three-way tie on D or close to it?
As for Devin, he's the undisputed starting quarterback, he's a defacto leader on the team, captain or not. Nice to see some of the other guys get some official recognition.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Re: Oregon game||
Perhaps what you're thinking of is the comment that Carr made in the post-game presser; Something along the lines of "Maybe the game has just passed me by." IIRC, it wasn't until late November that it was officially announced. The writing was certainly on the wall after his post Oregon comments, but there was nothing official at that point.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I have a||
I have a sneaking suspicion that Norfleet will get more carries now, out of the slot, than he ever would have had burried on the depth chart at HB behind all the moosebacks now on the roster. Motioning him into, or through, the backfield adds another dimension for defenses to adjust to, and I don't think an occasional handoff is out of the question.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I disagree||
I disagree. I don't think you go to all the touble of putting the numbers back in circulation, having a special ceremony for the families, a special patch, a special locker, etc etc all to just...not use them.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Thank you!||
Glad someone finally said it. Look, I'm excited the kid committed. I'm looking forward to him being a Wolverine, but let's give him some time to finish high school before we declare him the next Anthony Carter. Sophomore 5*'s don't always pan out. See: Miller, Ricardo.

What would you prefer, the same tired circlejerking about politics, unions, and race that comprises the discussions of this topic everywhere else on the 'net? Try Mlive.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Was about to post the same thing||
I was about to post the same thing. Unintended consequences indeed. It makes the concept of "lighting him up" quite literal. By doing this, you're giving defensive players something to aim for, a tangible measurement of how "effective" they are at devastating hits. You best believe an NFL rookie looking for that last roster spot, or a redshirt freshman linebacker looking for some recognition and playing time is going to try to make any TE or WR coming over the middle light up like a Christmas tree.
