|1 day 6 hours ago||Other NFL status updates: Cam Gordon put on Injured Reserve||
by the Pats. Neither he nor Gallon got much if any playing time due to "undisclosed injuries," but Gallon is now listed as active, so maybe he'll get some time in the last pre-season game. Cam did get practice time early, so maybe he showed enough for them to keep him on IR.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I think I misspelled my own nom de Blog||
I guess michigas would be spelled with an "a" though it's pronounced michigahs, which looks less like a digestive issue, but gosling is spelled with an "o"...
And I'm not a baby bootie.
I feel so much better now.
|1 day 12 hours ago||It's an NCAA violation||
for Angry Michigan ACL gods to get involved while he's still in high school.
|2 days 9 hours ago||A very good shot.||
As long as I'm checking depth charts: He's #2, backing up one Larry Foote. (Still a starter after all these years.)
|2 days 9 hours ago||Jibreel Black was injured||
One of those put on IR one day and cut the next. Reached an injury settlement. (Injury listed as "undisclosed.")
But better news out of Tampa Bay, Omameh is the starting left guard! They stole him off the 49'ers practice squad late last season.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Read he also showed up out of shape||
and didn't take part in "voluntary" off-season activities/conditioning. So yes, the DUI made their decision easy.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Gamebook showed he was a sub two weeks ago||
but I never saw his number on the field. Only a couple shots of him watching sadly from the sideline. This past week he was listed as "did not play." Hope he gets on the field this week if only to let other teams think about him. Or perhaps the Jets know he's not ready and are still hoping to keep him for the practice squad.
|2 days 15 hours ago||He must have been thinking in German||
I suspect publishers think we don't need editors anymore and that software will solve all their problems. Why I know Ph.D. editors who are out of work.
|2 days 17 hours ago||I'm probably thinking the same.||
Simply don't understand this insistence on believing one's own negativity despite evidence to the contrary.
I'll leave out my addendum about wanting to cast him as the star of a movie I'm not qualified to write. Besides his talents in football, he has the charisma (and looks) to be a star both on and off the field, and something more important for film: there's always something going on behind the eyes. Intelligence, humor, and holding back as much as he reveals. Of course it'll be easier for him to get that second career after his stardom as a QB. And I trust he will reach his own personal goals before I subject him to mine.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Thank you for noticing.||
And saying something about it. This wasn't even a quote or from a reliance on spell-check, this wasn't a post on a blog where people are in haste and/or texting, simply having a conversation. This is from a supposed journalist. But how are kids supposed to learn when they're raised reading as many errors as hearing them?
I despair. Yeah, I'm an old get-off-my-typewriter old fogey. [And yeah, I used "old" twice.] But maybe they'll listen to you.
|3 days 2 hours ago||They didn't wait that long||
He was cut today. (Sunday, that is.)
|5 days 17 hours ago||Brandon Graham report?||
Since the coaching change moved him to linebacker, I'd read that it's been an adjustment and even talk about him sticking with the team.
Those of us from afar can only check the postgame stats to see how he's doing: Not a starter, but he had a highlight sack last week, and this week another sack along with a forced fumble. Any local/inside news on one of our favorite players?
|1 week 3 hours ago||And picked up a pizza||
instead of exploring Italy in between games.
|1 week 4 hours ago||Visibly Stronger||
or at least visibly better, according to LSASuperstar's detailed analysis of the Michigan Drill practice video [EDIT: bumped to Diary from Board?]. Here's his desciption of one of Miller's reps:
|1 week 15 hours ago||Miller||
So you're saying the coaches have some basis to their statements that Miller's showing improvement? Nice.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Austin Hatch - the future is now (or a day or two ago)||
A preview moment that worked for me (twice): video of Austin checking into his first game with the team in Italy, and the description of the moment in team manager Devon Mulry's blog report:
Mulry was sitting next to Jim Hatch, Austin's grandfather, when a buzz started spreading in the crowd:
|1 week 1 day ago||Willie Henry article with comments by Frank||
Linked to the article above, one about Willie having had to make adjustments on the field and off as a freshman and Frank Clark mentoring him, having gone through similar things with similar backgrounds, helping him learn to trust that their coaches, like their high school coach Ted Ginn, have only their best interests at heart.
|1 week 1 day ago||I was thinking it doubles as a hockey rink||
and the glass was to protect the fans from flying pucks. So you're telling me it's the other way around?
|1 week 2 days ago||Mine too.||
Just got home, and there it was, curled up cozily in the mailbox.
|1 week 2 days ago||Also in NY, but not worried.||
Figure Brian might be bringing them to the Alumni thing tonight to hand deliver it. Too bad I forgot to tell him I can't be there this year.
I did receive the specimen kit for a medical research project I volunteered for. [Didn't fit in my mailbox, so I hope my neighbors didn't panic seeing "Human Specimen" written in such big letters on the box sitting casually in the lobby.]
|1 week 2 days ago||Not to the extent he was in jaxville||
He clearly couldn't hold on to the ball because his hand wasn't working.
And that first fumble on his first snap at Michigan was priceless. Turned into a TD if I recall correctly. So there's fumbles, and then there's fumbles.
|1 week 3 days ago||It took a long time for his nerve injury to heal||
which they now realize explained his ball-handling difficulties last season, so they'll trust him again and let him try more things. He's also spent time in the gym and looks much less delicate than before. But he can still flash that smile.
|1 week 3 days ago||The title of the other post doesn't say so||
but it also includes Hoke's post-scrimmage presser. A good listen, and recommended for the meltdown artists.
Also some tweets along the right margin with still shots and brief video clips.
|1 week 4 days ago||We all can't be in the stadium||
so we appreciate the sacrifice.
|1 week 4 days ago||When in Rome...||
Then bring it home:
|1 week 4 days ago||One of his best games||
on a broken foot. So without a broken foot...
|1 week 4 days ago||They look taller without the coaches.||
At least the taller ones look taller. Than the less tall ones. (Bacari's shot.)
EDIT: They look even taller with that MGoBlog response-post squeeze'm in effect.
|1 week 5 days ago||Camera... nt....||
With all the speculation, I thought you wanted a picture of the nose tackle.
|1 week 5 days ago||Poor kids probably tried so hard to schedule||
it before the season. And then Hoke springs this on them.
|1 week 5 days ago||Here's hoping it's one of those curable ones||
But in the meantime, seems watching your team when it can't lose should be pretty good therapy. And may the season be good enough to ease his way through treatment.
