Is that the doctors have "cleared" him in the sense that he can get on his feet and on the floor, and that he's been allowed to practice. What we've read says he's practiced a certain amount, not full practices, and what's "up to him" is probably, "So how do you feel? Do you need to rest now? Are you feeling twinges (or whatever is related to whatever his issue is/was)?" And that report has to come from Caris. If he's practicing but not ready to play his full minutes or up to speed, due to fatigue and/or concern that he might re-injure or exacerbate the whatever, it's probably a mutual decision to wait, both for his good and the good of the team.

Worth the wait.
|1 week 9 hours ago||At least we know why he seemed so uncomfortable on stage||
If he's from a town where that's the highlight, sitting behind Harbaugh with all the legends and cameras and hooplah must have been pretty overwhelming.
He'll feel better in front of Michigan crowds with a helmet and something to do.
|1 week 11 hours ago||Is the show in NYC?||
Heavy snow and a giant crane collapsed downtown.
|1 week 1 day ago||Only time I ever called in to a radio talk show||
was when Victor Hobson was drafted by the NY Jets in the second round, and Francesca didn't seem to know anything about him. So I tried to help.
PS: Thanks for the heads-up.
|1 week 3 days ago||Don't need the disclaimer||
Don't know who on this blog would NOT want to read it. We like being proud of our guys.
|1 week 5 days ago||Schlissel leaned heavily on Hackett||
No need to question your sources. It's what makes Schlissel so good for his job.
When he first took the job, he was very open about what he needed to learn about the university, so it wouldn't be surprising that he'd have Hackett heavily involved, as an advisor and sounding board at the very least. The Major Sports thing was new to him when he came here, and rather than dismiss it as unimportant, he took it upon himself to learn what it meant to Michigan and why. Impressed with how he worded his conclusions at this press conference after his first year on the job.

And really good, if I remember.
Oh, and so was Tom Brady!! Not at the same time, but at least that gives them some legitimate celebrity cred.

Our hockey guys skate so fast...
|1 week 6 days ago||I think the last couple bball games were at Barclays||
And the last Michigan game I remember going to at MSG was the hockey loss against Cornell.
|1 week 6 days ago||Word is they're going to Carmine's||
One of those big family-style places with huge platters of food to share. No subs, but It'll still be crazy.
|1 week 6 days ago||Acronym theories||
The one I remember hearing about was For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, and the abbreviation was on the stocks where convicted villains had to face the scorn of their neighbors. Here's a wonderfully titled essay that says both assertions are false (or at least conspiracy theories):
The just-a-word defense:
But don't ask me what the fu-- heck that last sentence means.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||And you can always add a layer or two of clothes||
But there are only so many layers you can take off. (Not that such things matter to college-age men. Hence cheerleader reasons for picking warm-climate schools.)
And all that damn sun! Palm trees may be pretty, but they don't give you any shade. Better to stay indoors to protect your eyes and delicate skin.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Starting to understand why the kids didn't want to wait||
to commit. Usually signing day focuses on them, instead of all these... celebrities? Most of whom have no discernible connection to M football. Unless... Wait. Are they committing too?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||But looks like he took the time to change his picture.||
It's one thing to be the face-painted outlaw rebel amongst friends, but now that the little whippersnapper might start tuning in...
|2 weeks 1 day ago||From a school with a big basketball team||
Actually two big basketball teams. Wiki'd the women: 10 NCAA nat'l championships (39-0 record in their 6th championship season in 2008, 39-0 again for their 7th in 2009), plus 16 final fours and a record winning streak of 90 games.
Local paper (Hartford Courant) does some "comparison shopping" between the two schools to see why Manuel might want to return to his alma mater.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||A virtual contribution||
(Dang. Can't figure out how to untie it.)
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Pats' top two runners starting the season are on IR||
or so the commentators said.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Unfortunately Demens & Woodley are both on IR||
But Larry Foote came off IR to become an ILB coach.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||In fairness to those of us who read in the wrong order||
it being the Panic Period Before Signing Day, the title of that thread wasn't descriptive enough to trump the Uche/Elysee announcement post, because based on yesterday's information it speaks to our panic mode and requires immediate attention. "NSD Commits/Extravaganza" sounded like yet another post telling us what's happening on signing day (events, timing, expectations, speculation). Many of us figured that if there was new info as to time, place, expectations-- we could get that after our panic attack was served.
Now we can relax. For another few minutes.
EDIT: I think this was meant to respond to the post below.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Fortunately they're not at the same time||
For those of us who celebrate the full holiday: WTKA's signing day special is from 3:00-6:00 [live at the Sports Bar Westside for you locals, audio stream for us exiles] and the Players' Tribune live stream from 11-1. I think this one's video, probably to replace what used to be the live streamed press conference.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||He may have already done so||
Now that he's gotten the assurance he can use a fax machine that's silent.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Is NJ even still there?||
I can usually see a sliver of it from my apartment windows, but it seems to have disappeared completely.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||Don't they also have the highest malpractice insurance rates?||
Have no idea why I would have heard that. Ah yes, a retired anesthesiologist told me that was why he retired.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||If she didn't set an official announcement date||
she's simply chatting among friends.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Let's hope he turned the Bengals down||
rather than the other way around, because he was so excited about coaching that stable of talented new DBs bound for M. And the word will get around to the rest of the NFL so they'll leave him alone. (For a while, at least.)
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Caught me.||
Your double negative trumps my double negative.
But I had to read both over 17 times to figure it out. Guess it's time for bed.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, in the sense that most of their routines scored higher||
Michigan swept the event titles, came in 1st & 2nd in the all-around, as well as scoring higher as a group in each of the four events.
On this level, most scores are over 9 points, so the differences are in the 1/10ths & 1/100ths. A fall usually means almost a full point off, which is huge, but women are allowed to use only 5 of 6 scores, so a single fall won't destroy you. But steps and wobbles and assorted imperfections add up with little deductions, and the more difficult the routine the higher starting value.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Woodley & Demens are on IR for the Cardinals||
But Larry Foote is coaching the LBs who aren't on IR. Does that mean we can still root for the Cards? Or does JMFR trump that?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||A Stanford legacy family||
would have noticed Stanford's turnaround under Harbaugh, and what happened to the 49ers under Harbaugh and after. Wouldn't be surprised if Harbaugh didn't have a lot of contact with the McCaffrey family while out there, or at least with Dylan's Dad. And who would he rather have to tutor his QB son?
