Won't be able to call it a fluke when Caris Levert goes in the top 10 next year.
|1 week 6 days ago||I think we are going to have||
I think we are going to have a really good defense this year. Especially the back seven. Not sure if Jabrill will win the Heisman, but maybe in another year or two.

Can't comment on Justified but I loved Timothy Oliphant in Deadwood.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, no GoT really sucks.||
Yeah, no GoT really sucks. But a couple of new shows I've been watching and am now really into are Penny Dreadful (Sunday nights) and Salem (Thursday nights). And I too am looking forward to The Leftovers and Strain based on the trailers I've seen.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Hmmmn, interesting news but||
Hmmmn, interesting news but seems to contradict other recruiting.... It sounded like we were recruiting Hjalte Froholdt (who is an interior lineman) pretty hard up until he committed to Arkansas. I wonder what changed?
|8 weeks 18 hours ago||Wow, so much negativity. I||
Wow, so much negativity. I bet at least one of these guys turns into a great receiver eventually. And I bet at least one of them sees significant playing time this year, not just on special teams. I know not every recruit is going to be a stud, but I would be very surprised if all three of them turned out to be busts.
As bluekoj said, there is almost nothing to go on at this point. Lets give them a chance before we just write off the entire 2013 receiver class.

After reading the above comments, I'm now convinced the NFL draft is the perfect Rorschach test for Michigan fans. The optimists see the silver lining and the haters see confirmation that the coaches suck.

I'd be really pissed if I were the security guard. He suffered a vicious attack for simply doing his job. If it were me, I'd want Jayru Campbell to receive the full wrath of the law (as a minor, not the bs where they often find some loophole to charge kids as adults), not some slap on the wrist.
Counciling and anger management classes.....what a joke.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I have no problem holding the||
I have no problem holding the coaching staff accountable. But I absolutely insist that we give them a few years to rebuild first, then fire 'em if they aren't getting the job done.
I'm not sure RR was the best for Michigan but I definitely don't want his replacement to be run out of town before he even has a chance to field a decent team. And I don't want to be in a 20 year cycle of rebuilding like Notre Dame.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Seems like stability to the||
Seems like stability to the program arrived with Hoke. I hope we actually follow through and give him a chance to rebuild the program. Otherwise we will be rebuilding for another 3-4 years if we get rid of him after this year.
|12 weeks 2 days 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:
|12 weeks 5 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.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I only drink at work. My||
I only drink at work. My problem is that I am a workaholic.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||It says the University of||
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.
|19 weeks 1 day 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.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||What About Gibbons' Civil Rights?||
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?
|22 weeks 12 hours ago||I don't know about that. The||
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.
|22 weeks 2 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.
|24 weeks 4 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.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||My father's words||
When I emailed my dad about this last night, his reply was classic... "Can we hire some of their players too"?
|31 weeks 6 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.
|42 weeks 3 days 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?

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.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||MA's and Loafs||
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....

Ah right. Thanks for the correction. Green Street Hooligans is what I meant.
