Beilein won't offer any 2017 prospects until June 15, not June 1.
|16 hours 57 min ago||Plenty of people at Michigan agree with this.||
And others are concerned about public perception. I don't know if this story will have any legs, but I'd be surprised if Michigan announced a deal with Nike while it was still in the news. I dare say that taking $4M/year less to sign with Nike would trigger some calls to investigate the deal.
|17 hours 18 min ago||Probably a better record, but Rudock would have||
had a bad game or three just like he did at Iowa. I doubt he makes more plays than Gardner did, or even as many. The advantage would have been fewer turnovers. That's a big factor, but Utah and Minesota were better than us last year.
Rudock is looking like potentially a big upgrade this season, much more so than he would have been last season.
|17 hours 32 min ago||Not quite.||
Scott Dreisbach was the starter in 1995 and 1996. Playing time opened up for Griese because of Dreisbach's injuries. Maybe Dreisbach would have had a long career in the NFL had he stayed healthy, but he didn't.
Griese didn't look ready when forced into action in 1995. He was good by his senior year and beat out Brady, who's looked pretty darn good ever since then.

Webb's comments since that tweet. He has Michigan still being behind MSU (Robertson) and OSU (Mack) for them.
|1 day 10 hours ago||That's something Magnus does.||
Ex-Wolverine Encyclopedia is a nice feature on his website.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Why would a Detroit kid worry about a backlash||
from PSU fans? He'd probably worry more about the reaction of his HS coach.
|1 day 12 hours ago||There are high schools in Texas that could easily beat EMU,||
in attendandce at their home games. On the field, I doubt that.
|1 day 19 hours ago||I want to be practical,||
but it really, really sucks if that kind of behavior would push any school to sign with Nike, let alone Michigan.
|2 days 5 hours ago||You're making it sound like Pitt was ducking the games.||
It was PSU and Paterno that were doing so, definitely not Pitt.
|2 days 11 hours ago||What?||
If they take the medical hardship they're done playing. They would no longer count against the scholarship limits although their education would continue to be paid for. You seem to be thinking of them taking a redshirt, although I don't see how that would lead to your conclusion.
|2 days 12 hours ago||In what crazy world is that scenario plausible?||
You need a reason Harbaugh would block that transfer. Good luck with that.
Then you have Auburn taking a PR hit without a peep from them, Countess or anyone else. If Harbaugh was blocking Countess from transferring there, we would have heard plenty about it. Especially since that's where he wanted to go.
|3 days 9 hours ago||That's true, but he has less crediility||
than in his pre-Lions days.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Putting in five of the teams is impressive.||
As long as the SEC praise is limited to softball it won't bother me.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Let's also remember the families||
of those who gave their lives. Our soldiers' sacrfice and bravery has been shared by those left behind.
|4 days 9 hours ago||Of course.||
That's what Beilein has done with most, if not all, of his late offers.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Oh come on.||
His family still ives in Flint and he's not in school year round.
Beilein knows what he's doing. I like that he has consistent and clear policies. He also doesn't offer until receiving satisfactory transcripts.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Yeah, that thrilling finish got me a little||
|4 days 12 hours ago||Going undefeated in a double elimination||
tournament is always sweet. Good luck to them in Omaha!
* not quite a pure double elimination format, I know
|5 days 7 hours ago||Lots of things are licensed to third parties.||
That number isn't all from Adidas. They have been paying $3,8M plus providing equipment.
I've seen lots of people here and elsewhere throwing out numbers about additional sales under Nike. I feel like those numbers have all just been plucked out of thin air. Does anyone even know if we get a cut of sales or just a guarantee? If so, what kind of numbers? All the articles I've seen only mentioned guaranteed money in the contracts for Michigan and other schools.
|5 days 16 hours ago||David Shaw||
What did you expect from him? Harbaugh very nearly hired his S&C coach away from him. He might not be happy about Lyons either. That hardly makes him representative of his former assistants.
|6 days 10 hours ago||That's not a question we have to answer.||
Let's just see how Rudock and Beathard look this year. Unless Beathard looks clearly better, it's a good question for Kirk Ferentz.
|6 days 13 hours ago||I think that if UNC's offers that technical defense||
they're in very deep trouble. The NCAA is well aware of those numbers. They're a reason they gave for not pursuing the case the first time around.
Let's consider some hypotheticals. The class was created to give athletes an easy A. The AD steered struggling athletes to the class. The AD or administration knew it was a sham class.
50% of the students in the sham class were not athletes. Was that always the case? If it started out entirely athletes, then expanded, that's a lot worse than if it was always an even mix. This should be easy to prove one way or another.
I'm not sure of the significance of the 50% figure. What if it were 90%? What would be a representative number? Were athletes given preferential treatment in getting into the class?
|6 days 18 hours ago||All true.||
This offense seems unstoppable, it's a lot of fun to watch. But softball is still a sport where pitchers can dominate. and they're going to have to win a couple of low scoring games.
|6 days 18 hours ago||The need some feel to vent on a public forum||
is one of those things I just don't understand. Probably never will.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Caring about the fairness of the scorekeeping||
in some random school's spring game? There's probably a word for that, but my vocabulary is inadequate.
|1 week 1 day ago||A last ditch offer to beat out the Sabres?||
They were reportedlly offering quite a bit more than the Wings too.
|1 week 1 day ago||Doesn't the NBA prevent teams from trading their||
first round picks away in consecutive years? Other than that, I'd say your proposed trade is a no-brainer for Detroit. Maybe the 2016 and 2018 picks.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm not sure what system would be better.||
|1 week 2 days ago||His guardian played for Purdue.||
Also he wants to play PF, his likely NBA position. There's no question that's where he fits in at Purdue, next to an NBA talent level center.
