|1 week 1 hour ago||Yep GoT and Walking Dead are||
Yep GoT and Walking Dead are great. I also am absolutely loving the first two episodes of Turn on AMC so far. Another good one that I just watched is the first season of Black Sails (on Starz). And Vikings (History Channel) is pretty awesome too if you haven't seen that yet.
I've heard some people say that The Black List is good. I liked the first few episodes but it got silly when every week they catch a new super-criminal/terrorist. I don't really like one hour self contained shows anymore. Instead I prefer the series format.
And yeah, Project Free TV is the best.

Not so fast. We're still in it. Found this on twitter:
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm surprised no programs||
I'm surprised no programs have offered to let star recruits design the team uniforms as an incentive to come to their school. Or maybe we just haven't heard about it?

I don't have any inside info or anything, but from what I've read it sounds like Sterling Jenkins is leaning towards Penn State.

I only drink at work. My problem is that I am a workaholic.

It says the University of Michigan is 2.67 times more influential than Ohio State University, 3.43 times more influential than Michigan State University and is 2.94 times more influential than the Univerisity of Notre Dame. Clearly this must be true.

Unfortunately Stidham just committed to Texas Tech. Hopefully this is just a "place-holder" commitment and he will still look around.

Apparently someone familiar was just a year ahead of you guys...

Unfortunately, I saw a disheartening tweet from Steve Lorenz today saying he is changing his "crystal ball" pick to Penn State for Sterling Jenkins.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||From what I heard, Nicholson||
From what I heard, Nicholson was a good athlete and had nice size for a safety, but didn't like contact. I believe Penn State passed on him for the same reason.

Perhaps you guys know more about this than I do. I live many states away and have only read a little about this but from my understanding, there were never any charges filed against Gibbons because the alleged victim did not want to pursue the matter. Then many years after the alleged rape that never warranted any charges, Gibbons is suddenly expelled because of a change in University policy. So Gibbons gets thrown under the bus by the university and now his reputation is forever destroyed.....and he may not have even done anything wrong?
If anyone's civil rights were violated, it was Gibbons. Or am I missing some important legal details?

I don't know about that. The fans demand wins or the coaches head. Are we willing to trade our higher academic and character standards for wins on the field? LF is saying yes, loosen the standards. I'm not saying he's right, but he does sound like much of our fan base.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Shhhhh......||
Don't heap too much praise on him. Everytime we get a good recruiting guy (Steve, Tom) someone comes along and snatches them up.
Just kidding. Nice job BB.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I had the opposite reaction.||
I had the opposite reaction. He completely embarrassed himself and will probably regret these comments when he grows up a bit. Now, instead of everyone talking about what a great corner he is, we're all talking about what a jackass he is instead.

When I emailed my dad about this last night, his reply was classic... "Can we hire some of their players too"?
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Whaaaaaa||
What a big effing baby. If you're so unhappy then don't go. Whaaaa I'm locked in, whaaaa! Its my career, whaaa! The ticket prices, whaaa! Jesus dude, be happy you don't have a shit job like some of us.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||What a little Diva||
Mark May must really know how to push his buttons because Holtz just lost it when May said he was out of order. Holtz yells "I'm sick of everybody jumping on coach". I guess he's earned the right to just go by the nickname coach, but who talks about themselves in the third person like that?
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Bo almost left in '82 for money||
This is in reply to you and Mr. Rager.
From Wikipedia: On January 15, 1982, Texas A&M offered Schembechler nearly $3 million for 10 years—the richest contract in the history of college athletics at that time—to become the school's football coach and athletic director. Schembechler turned it down. "Frankly, I've come to the conclusion that there are things more important in this world than money," Schembechler said. "For that reason, I've decided to stay at Michigan."
But thats not the whole story according to my father (U of M alumni graduated mid 70's). My dad says that Bo was very close to leaving. Three million over 10 years was an astronomical sum at the time and Bo was certainly tempted. But at the 11th hour some Michigan alumni got together led by Tom Monighan and bought Bo two Dominos Pizza franchises (in Columbus, OH by the way) and the University gave him a 40% raise so he would stay in Ann Arbor.

MA's (missed assignments) and loafs. I learned something new. They do keep stats on linemen.
I'd kind of like to hear about those stat lines on the other lineman too. Especially the guys battling for the other Guard spot and the Center position like Bryant, Braden, Miller, Glasgow etc....
|40 weeks 6 days ago||Ah right. Thanks for the||
Ah right. Thanks for the correction. Green Street Hooligans is what I meant.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||Hooligans||
Reminds me of a pretty good movie called "Hooligans". Elijah Wood plays an American visiting his sister in England who gets caught up with the extreme fans of West Ham United. No decapitations but lots of good fights and violence.
|47 weeks 5 days ago||Muppets on Sunday?||
When Jabrill Peppers commits on Sunday will it be the Muppets or Naughy by Nature?
Or maybe Brian can get the Muppets to do OPP, Hip Hop Hurray or Feel Me Flow? Now that would be awesome.
|50 weeks 5 days ago||For Profit?||
I know that about 80% of Michigan charter schools are "for profit". Is this school?
The reason I ask is that you are soliciting donations on behalf of the children.
|51 weeks 5 days ago||Great idea. Shouldn't be too||
Great idea. Shouldn't be too tough since we have 78 All-Americans, 3 Hiesman Trophy winners, an ex-President and a bunch of all time great coaches to choose from.
|51 weeks 5 days ago||Jeremy Clark||
ESPN just did an "exit interview" thing with all of the departing seniors. One of the questions was about which 2012 red-shirt they expect to make a big impact this year. At least three of them picked Jeremy Clark and had some really nice things to say about his development and his performance on last years scout team. I don't think he's going to beat out Thomas Gordon and Jerrod Wilson for the starting safety spots, but it sounds like he has a good chance to see some playing time this year.

Not to pick nits but they were fainting goats actually. They faint every time they get scared. Lots of videos of them on Youtube. And funnier than this prank in my opinion.

I am completely baffled as to what point you're trying to make and I'm quite sure my point sailed right over you're head too.
You picked two outstanding examples of what a real football players ought to be. Devin and Denard have always done whatever the coaches want without complaint or hesitation - block, tackle, switch positions, etc.... And you would never ever hear those words (I don't want to block) coming out of their mouths.
Like I said above, maybe the interviewer misunderstood or failed to follow up with a question letting him know he would be doing a lot of blocking as a receiver at Michigan? But all I have to judge is this quote that makes Andrews sound like a bit of a prima donna.
|1 year 1 day ago||Yeah I can't believe the||
Yeah I can't believe the interviewer didn't ask a follow up. Thats an incredibly shocking thing for a football player to say and not clarify.
|1 year 1 day ago||Andrews is not a true football player.||
I'm glad we missed on Mark Andrews. He doesn't want to block? GTFO with that crap and go play dolls or something. You don't think Jeremy Gallon blocks his tail off? Wow, I've literally never heard a football player say those words.

I heard on another site that Scarborough is being recruited by Alabama as a WR instead of RB. That may be the reason for the renewed intrest. That and Alabama already has a stable full of NFL running backs.
