Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

|1 week 2 days ago||Seriously Depressing||
Really glad I've got a beer in hand as I read through this one. Devin Gardner has been one of my favorite players, and I'll always wonder what could have been with different coaching.
Also amazing how foreboding the offensive line predictions were at the time. If i remember right everyone on this blog was thinking we needed receivers desparately at the time, and they could make it up with a big o-line class the next year.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Lot of variability||
I think it's easy to get caught up in the Harbaugh hype, but 10-2 or 11-1 seems fairly optimistic for a first year transition.
Worst case scenario I could see us dropping at least 2 non-conf games. New QB, new staff, new system. Conf could be 4 losses in there. I would say 6-6 is the floor. Hard to say is this the team that got blown out by a mediocre ND team, and we have a long way to go? Or is it the team that hung with ohio state until the 4th qt?
I would guess we likely end up somewhere around 8-4, but every game is at least competitive. Which is a big step in the right direction from where we've been the last couple years.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||1. QB 2. WR 3. RB||
I feel like in order of importance those are the three. QB obviously we need someone to step up and at least be average.
WR - Last year I did not see our receivers getting much separation or being wide open very often. This will be critical to help take some of the burden off a new QB. Can Drake Harris get healthy?
RB - I feel like this position is too loaded to not have someone step up and be a major factor that other teams have to gameplan for.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Manning||
I would have been all in favor of Manning for dline or lb coach. Not sure I'm huge on him if the only position left is CB. Jourdan Lewis made some great strides this year, but feel like Countess, Taylor and Stribling all regressed a bit. Always hard to tell if that's from the scheme/DC or position coach though.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||I think the publicity||
would have been solid for Harbaugh to by on the telecast last night, but glad he's working on staff/recruiting stuff. I think we definitely need to pick up another 2 Olinemen and another Dlineman. Roquan would be a ridiculous pick up this late in the game as well.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
That was truly hilarious. Scott VanPelt definitely takes the crown. Great reaction to it as well.

I was pretty pleased with the game. Going in I was really hoping that we would have a chance to win late in the 4th quarter. That scenario definitely came in to play. I think the fact that we were down 14, and with the way Ohio was running the ball they could have easily ran away with it given how we've shown up the last few weeks. I was pretty proud that we were able to come back.
Certainly disappointed in the way the 2 point conversion played out. I would agree with the previous poster that I think it depends on how you view the players. (Pro's or amateurs). Having gone through college a few years ago, I'm fully cognizant of the fact that a lot of these guys are 18 and 19 and certainly want to lose less than any of us do.

Hopefully we get a retroactive one later on from either Brian or maybe even mini-UFR's breaking down parts of the game from knowledgable posters.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I've been to some bad ones||
App State for one. Most recently Penn State. Nothing quite like seeing that in person. Fortunately the good ones (Braylonfest + Manningham against Penn State) make you come back for more.

Typically BTN2GO.com will be available at midnight EST. ESPN3.com will usually have it available for replay (since it's on an ESPN affiliate) immediately after finishing.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Absolutely||
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Awesome||
Thanks so much for the input.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Saturdays||
in the fall are definitely the exception to the rule. I'm totally ok with drinking as soon as either a) you start tailgating.
b) Gameday comes on
|2 years 38 weeks ago||As far as I know||
ESPN3 will not be streaming the game, and ABC also does not have a stream. Agree with everyone else that firstrowsports is the most reliable for having the stream up, but tends to not be the best quality. I love streaming from ESPN3 when available.

on Heineken. Will be watching the game at home today. Anyone know of a site to stream Gameday?

Has become part of the religion that is Michigan football. She may be more superstitious than I am and has to wear the same outfit as long as Michigan is on a win streak.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Awesome||
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Tried that||
I wish they let you set up a subscription just for the website.

not home often enough to warrant paying cable, and there is literally one bar that I know of around here that gets the BTN and it's a good 30 mins from my house.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||WHOOO!||
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Interesting write up||
Good to start hearing some new names to get ideas of guys to watch out for. It should be an exciting few weeks as we learn who this new staff is going to make a priority for '12.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||WHOOO!!||
Gotta love gettin' those big uglies!.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||You may have||
a lot of gaping holes on the lines with that many skill position players in one class.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Aw sorry||
I took a look at the recent posts, I should have searched also. It was a lot easier a couple weeks ago when there were only a few threads per day rather than per hour. My bad.

just tweeted that there is a players meeting tomorrow at 4. Let the speculation begin.
