“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.”

That was my very first game at the Big House. I'd take that over what we have now any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Negative thread about Jabrill looking elsewhere gets 100+ posts. Positive thread (abliet only somewhat positive) gets 26. Go figure.
I hope that this visit was a huge step towards keeping him in this class.

Perhaps Dantonio should have tried that scout team QB.

If the University wants to punish Fritz, by all means they can. Coach Hoke knows the situation, knows Fitz, and knows his program better than all of us. Therefore, he should be responsible for doling out the football related punishments. If the university wants to tack on additional punishment, I agree that Hoke cannot step in and stop it. But no one is suggesting that Hoke do this.
Furthermore, I'd rather have a culture of secrecy take foothold rather than a culture that submits to public pressure from us interneters and the likes of Drew Sharp. Now I know many fans, myself included, have ragged on MSU for the handelling of the Winston, Rucker, et al., situations. I think many of the people in favor of suspending Fitz are because of said ragging. This is not a sufficient reason to suspend Fitz. Furthermore, if we want to feel superior to the likes of MSU, OSU, SEC, etc., we just got to beat them.

I would say an administrator level conspiracy to cover up years of child molestation is quite a bit different than letting Fitz play two months after he got popped for an OWVI.
Furthermore, as an alum, I'd rather beat Alabama while playing a perfecly eligible Fitz and have to deal with non-UM fans complaining that we played Fitz, as opposed to losing and taking the moral high ground. Quite frankly, I find the moral high ground to be a cop-out. We're Michigan because we win and develop high quality men, not because we suspend our players when they make youthful mistakes.

|3 years 34 weeks ago||Don't you think that Rich Rod would have a better chance of||
success at the other U? His recruiting inroads are in Florida. The weather is almost always nice, which is very condusive to spread'n'shred. The ACC doesn't have the same size as the Big Ten, which is also helps his offense. Plus, it seems that at Miami there would not be the same resistance to the cultural changes that RichRod brought about.
Not saying that this would happen, but it seems that Rich Rod would enjoy a lot more success in the ACC than he does here at Michigan.

Although I don't think that Chalmers knows anything about football, let alone Michigan Football.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Boise State is the perfect example||
For years Boise State has unsucesfully tried to get a big home and home series. No top BCS team will oblige them. I'm not certain but I also believe that none of the conferences invited them to join (perhaps because they are a crappy Idaho school). As a result they are, for the most part, precluded from playing in the NC game. Even if everyone else loses and even if they continue to blow out the teams they do play. I think that the BCS and the BCS conferences have set up an anticompetitive system and I think that the antitrust claims would at least be supported.
