Am I the only one who thinks the S & C coach is WAY overblown in terms of the team's performance? I mean when Barwis came in we were led to believe his amazing approach to lifting was going to absolutely revolutionize our team's strength and endurance but I sure dont remember us owning the 4th quarter in too many games those years.
And now Wellman is gone and with him will be our soft OLine and knee injuries it seems accoriding to some of the comments in this thread. It just seems to me like the Strength and Conditioning coaches are one of those roles that get far too much credit when things are going well and way too much blame when things are going poorly.

Did you have a radio or MTV? Cause he was wall to wall on everything I had on.

Good Lord those are hideous. I mean I love my team but I really, really hate those shoes.
I know it's terribly old-fashioned but I'll take simple white or black Nike's all day long please.

If only someone would take the time to summarize all the potential recruits for this class and rank them based on the side of the ball they play on, their particular position and the likelyhood of landing them. If only that person would take the time to put their thoughts down in writing and save them, say in a diary for example, for others to see. And if If only that someone would take the time to title that mythical post something like "Updated Realistic Projected Recruting Board" and if only that person would update it periodically as recruits committ or go elsewhere and lable their update "2.0" or such so others knew the information was fresh and current.
Sigh....I sure wish we had such a person amoung us.

I could definitely make the case for Zep but I went with what I thought of first and Bee Gees (unfortunately) came to mind. FWIW I saw LZ at the Silverdome back in the 70's - helll of a show.
FWIW Elton John, The Stones, Pink Floyd & freakin Abba all sold more records than Zepplin (they were #4 in albums sold in the 70's). But I think either Zep or the Bee Gees would be the considered the seminal band of the decade.

No Way! A fan of Alabama did something insanely stupid that demonstrates just how ridiculously out of proportion they take their collegiate fandom?

I have no idea what that picture is supposed to represent as it relates to the OPs "helpful" suggestions to Brian but it's hilarious and I cant stop looking at it.

Um...that actually IS a cool story. One of the coolest Michigan stories I've heard in a long, long time. Wish I could give more than one upvote to it.

The 1976 team featured Rob Lytle, Harlan Huckleby (still the best name ever) and Russell Davis in the backfield with Ricky Leach at QB and Jim Smith at WR. That was the best Michigan team I remember as a kid growing up and they were a ton of fun to watch.
Lytle & Leach were always my two of my favorite Wolverines. Such good memories......

Which would make "pick em" game like this one impossible to do. There is no underdog.
That being said I AM going to bet it (the only game of the year I do bet on) and I AM going to bet the Pats. I'm going to my neighbors Super Bowl party and they are from Boston and huge Pats fans. I'm going to wear my Michigan gear and represent Sir Tom.

Take it from a guy on the wrong side of 50 who wears glasses, has hearing aids, puts on five pounds just looking at a burger and whose knees hurt like hell the day after I run if I sit for any length of time. I dont care who you are - aging sucks.
As The Pretenders once sang back in the day - Time the Avenger.

Hey mods - can we get a "Deflate-gate" open thread? This is a VERY IMPORTANT TOPIC (I know it's an important topic because ESPN has 6-7 stories on it per hour) and we all need the latest updates, comedy, denials and whatnot the minute they occur.
I know for me only our recent coaching search rivals this subject in terms of importance. Check that - this subject is more imporant than ANYTHING HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IN THE ENTIRE CIVILIZED WORLD and must be treated as such.

Absolutely fucking not. We, Sigma Chi, shared a parking lot with the house who tortured/hung the house cat and I actually saw the poor thing hanging from tree in our back lot and called the cops. I was the guy who reported it to the police and turned them in.
Those sick fucks cut off it's paws, hung it from a tree and then set it on fire. To this day I've seen very little in my life that compares to that sight in terms of cruelty to another living thing.

Shortly after I graduated my fraternity, Sigma Chi, got suspended and then eventually booted off campus alltogether. We had to reapply for admission first with our charter and then with the university for reinstatement. It's NOT an insignificant punishment and it set back our house a decade or more.
We had idiots shooting bb guns at the windows in South & West Quad from our roof amoungst other alcohol related offenses.
This is a big deal.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I hope he turns out||
I hope he turns out absolutely awesome but let's face it, if Harbaugh had said during the negotiations that one of his conditions to accept the job was that Michigan had to create a spot on the coaching staff for his kid, I think it's safe to say 99% of us would've happily said YES without knowing if his son had ever even seen a football much less played it.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Much worse indeed||
|2 days 21 hours ago||Because other posters make||
Because other posters make comments about recuiting that infer that now that we have Harbaugh and the new staff we'll finally be able to recruit well and that's 100% pure Columbian revisionist bullshit.
Hoke could recruit - he just couldnt coach which led to players decommitting.
Edit: And to answer your question I was responding to a post that's no longer there.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Say what you will about his||
Say what you will about his ability to coach but recruiting was never one of Brady's problems. If he could've taken the talent and translated it into wins he'd of surely retained a LOT of the elite players who at one time were committed to Michigan.

My "Outrage" is still squarely focused on the blatant fixing of the Lions/Cowboys game a few weeks ago by league officials when THIS was decided to not be PI once the officials realized calling it would fuck up the NFL's desired Ice Bowl II rematch....

Why were some ceiling tiles spared? What made them special?

Jelous Browns fan here. We lose a decent, not great, but decent OC in Kyle Shanahan largely because:
A. We have no QB
B. The Owner likes to text play "suggestions" to the OC during the game
C. The Owner thinks we have a QB and is going to ram little Johnny Football down the throat of the OC thereby dooming his future
So who did WE get today for our OC? Why none other that the immortal John DeFilippo, he of Raiders QB coach fame, who has never coordinated anything at the NFL level although he was the OC at San Jose State for a couple of years.
Oh and DeFilippo (who might be awesome but has zero track record so who knows) will be our SIXTH Offensive Coordinator in six years. God help me.

Dustin Hawkins was the contributing writer for Chat Sports who broke the story (allegedly) of his visit.
Frankly I'm amazed he had time to break the story AND get back to class before recess was over but hey....kids nowdays are fast.
