|17 hours 5 min ago||This was originally posted by the father of a recruit||
which is why there was the controversy above. Besides the basic question of privacy and offending coaches of other schools, it makes sense that having his name (and his son's) in this public forum might have resulted in coaches being less willing to allow him into practice in the future.
|17 hours 23 min ago||Interview with Bolden on MGoBlue.com||
should answer your question. LINK
Also posted here earlier: See "Bolden speaks of Harbaughing..." Says he loves Hoke, so trying not to make value judgments, talking specifically (and enthusiastically) about the differences in practice.
|22 hours 3 min ago||And the Durkining and the Peppering...||
Great fun. [The authorized version from the Mothership!]

And much prettier than your avatar
|1 day 8 hours ago||His life was as a blessing||
|1 day 21 hours ago||Congrats.||
As I read this, you have amassed 126 points. You now have your upvoting license.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Never heard of Randy Moss until he played for the NFL||
Tyrone Wheatley, on the other hand... Yes, it was with TJ Jr. that I felt I'd crossed the border.
|3 days 15 hours ago||I think his point was that he DOES know the difference.||
and was listing how different days can have the feeling of "a new year" and thus "a new beginning," New Year's Day being the obvious, and that to many (and he was very careful with his wording here to avoid the no religion/no politics issue), Xmas is that new year/new beginning, and that to us here, the first day of practice is that new year/new beginning. (Which in football, he says, you get to have twice a year, so that's a bonus doubling the chances of starting out fresh.)
|4 days 8 hours ago||The team, the team, the team!||
All make their contributions for the good of all.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Yeah, but what do you do with those changing borders?||
What about those towns that were in Poland one minute, then in Austro-Hungary, and then you try to track an ancestral one down and find out it's now in [the] Ukraine?
|5 days 8 hours ago||Surprised about the #81list||
Until I realized that the two Michigan receivers I associated with #81 wore it in the NFL: Amani Toomer for the Giants, and Jason Avant managed to get the #81 in all three of his NFL teams: the Eagles, then the Panthers and now the Chiefs. (Avant wore #8 at Michigan and Toomer #18.)
|5 days 19 hours ago||Very impressive interview.||
How he used his redshirt year, balancing student teaching with football this year, and more. Looking forward to seeing him back on the field.
|5 days 20 hours ago||I have a serious traditionalist fan friend||
who has the same problem with The Big House. "It's called Michigan Stadium!!! The Big House is Southern Michigan Prison!" [We're from Jackson.]
Must say I haven't heard the complaint lately... Maybe the realization has sunk in that Michigan staff and announcers and players (and recruits) also use the term.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Best of luck to him.||
Hope he can carry some good memories of his time here, along with his degree.
It would be great to see him get a fresh start on the field and a chance to enjoy the game again.
|6 days 7 hours ago||I was prepared not to like it because it was a gimmick||
But I was surprised at how engrossing it was. , and the kid they found as the boy was incredible (too many incredibles, sorry, it's late), gradually his hair would grow, gradually his voice would deepen, and all the way through he was believable and very, very good.
Other than that, I saw all the nominated films but American Sniper, and they were all good. The apples & oranges thing. So I watched Downton Abbey and watched the end of the other thing.
Agreed with all the acting awards. [Wait? Who was supporting actress? I was watching Downton then. And that was the only one I wasn't sure about. Good performances, but.... ]
Thought JK Simmons in Whiplash was a shoo-in as soon as I saw the first few minutes of the movie. Some people I told not to see it, because it would strike too close to home. That teacher/professor/coach who "teaches" via humiliation, plus a few extra doses of psychopathology. And realizing later he's the same guy who plays the nebbishy professor of that insurance company's mythical college... [People who've watched Oz were less surprised. I've only seen him play nice guys.] Hoped Julianne Moore would win, and she did. All the lead actors were terrific in terrific roles, but Eddie Redmayne had the good fortune to be given the role of a lifetime and the challenge of playing someone who's still alive, and believably showing the gradual changes as his disease takes over (not a spoiler) without it becoming grotesque or a joke. I really thought I was looking at Stephen Hawking. And now when I see Stephen Hawking I think he's an imposter.
|6 days 12 hours ago||And for us it's a title of honor||
and affection. We love our weird guys.
|1 week 11 hours ago||Women chasing all the Big Boys (so to speak)||
In the midst of the Big Ten Tourney, the women swimmers are setting records. Currently #2 going into the finals.
#15 Women's tennis upset #6 Baylor 4-1, and Emina Bektas tied a Michigan record with most singles wins.
And #6 Women's gymnastics was 8-0 going into last night's meet with #1 Oklahoma (defending national champs) and almost upset them, closing the score to lose by less than 2/10 of a point (197.375-197.250). They've already beaten several ranked teams, and lead the B1G in 3 out 4 events. The 4th is vault (where they're only 2nd in the B1G), and if they'd only stuck a couple more landings on their spectacular vaults, they could have had the upset. Now they know they belong in the NCAA picture as well as being the favorites for the Big Ten.
Sophomore Nicole Artz (whose picture below seems to say it all), got a 10 from one judge in beam, winning the event with a career high 9.950. In contrast to the description of the SEC commentators for softball, the analyst for this meet was Olympic champ Shawn Johnson. Giving Oklahoma its due respect, she became very impressed with Michigan and wasn't shy about saying the other judge should have given Nicole the 10. Considering Shawn won the Olympic gold in beam, she should know. Below she's on floor, with almost as almost-perfect a score: 9.925.
EDIT: The picture is much better un-thinified.
|1 week 1 day ago||Wait a second!||
I've stared at that PeeWee Denard picture over and over again, and it was only now that I noticed the connection!
Denard and Jordan were destined to be together in our hearts!
|1 week 1 day ago||Ah, don't listen to Carlos.||
Although I wouldn't go so far as to get married to see an away game, I am a female and there are times I can't admit that I'm turning down comp tix for something because I have to sneak away and watch a Michigan sports event. And that sentence he obviously missed? Good sign for the marriage.
|1 week 1 day ago||I have the same problem.||
So here it is again. Works for me every time.
|1 week 1 day ago||Currently #44 on the active roster||
Whether he's still there after the draft and camps and preseason cuts is another question. But he wasn't one of the cuts after this season, isn't one of the 10 guys signed to their "futures/reserve" group, has been back and forth from their practice squad a couple of times, and I think this last time he was taken from Philadelphia's P.Sq. to move back on to their active squad. Sounds like they like him, so here's hoping.
|1 week 3 days ago||They're both from hot-climate schools||
where you work up a sweat just getting up in the morning. So maybe they're imagining what the AC would be like for summer work-outs.
|1 week 3 days ago||The MMB actually has an arrangement of "Monster Mash"||
Part of a monster-themed half-time show back in the early-to-mid-70s. (Just checked with the arranger to confirm.)
[It's possible you knew that, but just in case.]
|1 week 3 days ago||Parentage||
Griese was son of an NFL player who had a little success in his time and probably had no problem with his son's tuition, and Sheridan's dad had coached at Michigan and around the NFL, now back home as Lions linebackers coach. Not the standard walk-on profiles.
Update: Nick is now (or at least starting in 2014) an offensive graduate ass't at Tennessee.
|1 week 3 days ago||And didn't he just have an intense||
And didn't he just have an intense pre-draft ethics coaching session with Harbaugh?
|1 week 3 days ago||Thank you so much.||
Carry on, gentlemen.
|1 week 3 days ago||So who's the guy with him?||
I assume he's a recruit, and he's smiling. All the way down the board and no one's identified him or even asked. Guess our obsessions are getting diverted.
|1 week 5 days ago||I remember getting grades then...||
But penmanship and citizenship* brought my GPA down.
*not political. I think it had something to do with giggling.
|1 week 5 days ago||The top three are tied at 15%||
with Beilein close enough at 10%... For those of us who need reminders, can we ask the OP to remind us every day?
|1 week 6 days ago||Thought so too||
Even though I first saw it on the official M team twitter (shocking!). Fortunately the warm-up photo tempted me to look further. Here's the LBSU website with the official history, plus quotes from team alumni-- including a couple MLB pitchers you may have heard of-- giving it their personal spin. [As posted below, it's the baseball nickname only. Their other teams are called the 49'ers.]
