|3 hours 20 min ago||We're behind with Corley||
This is a huge step, but we still trail both rivals. Hopefully we're even by the end of the BBQ. Speaking of which...I'm hungry. Time to get outside and do something with this beautiful day.

They've had great weather all weekend...85 Friday, 82 yesterday, 87 and sunshine today.

What a shame, to this day I still think he was an all-B1G guard if he could've got and stayed healthy.
|4 hours 36 min ago||lol we say this every year||
|4 hours 37 min ago||Correction||
Fireworks and not so smart people...not a good idea.
Sure there were a couple of football players who had accidents...but what about all those idiots who stick fireworks in their butt and shoot them off?

Valentin or Davis...who do you like better at OG?
|4 hours 43 min ago||It's smart.||
Because now they can't get comfortable.
You can't go party the night before thinking practice is at 2p when it could be at 5a.
Keeps everything thinking about football and football only. Which is how camp should be.
Even high schools do this - hell, they even did it in Remember The Titans, lol.
It's a good way to see who can lock in and focus and put away all the distractions for 2 weeks and get through camp - together. If you practice at the same time every year, guys will figure out when they can cut corners.
|4 hours 56 min ago||There will never be another Woodson||
I'm just saying...they're not going to run him out on offense to be a decoy. That's silly.
Hey, Jabrill, you're already playing defense and special teams...why don't you just go run 15 yard sprints on offense on top of that to see if we can trick the defense?!
|4 hours 57 min ago||Care to elaborate?||
I don't know anything about the subject...but I'm not sure "you are wrong" is going to convince me.
|4 hours 59 min ago||Funny||
Because during every presser during the Hoke era...people would bitch about how he didn't talk enough/detail anything. It was "Fort Schembechler returns!" and people liked that because Rich Rod would damn near give you the game plan if you let him.
Very interesting how perception changes even though in reality not much did (other than the biggest and most important change...the person).
Hoke/Harbaugh basically say the exact same things during press conferences, Harbaugh is just more weird/quirky and he has no attention span.
They're both not giving secrets away, they're both all about the TEAM, they're both obsessed with Bo, they're both selling family and the Michigan way and Michigan tradition, they both can be combative, they both can be short, they both can be funny or engaging at times. They're both obsessed with TOUGHNESS. Neither would win press conference speaker of the year.
The difference isn't with the media or in press conference...the difference is in knowledge, ability, talent, skill of being a head football coach. One is one of the best in the world - the other is a very good position coach who can run a team if asked.
***The one caveat with media - the biggest difference between the two...is social media. Harbaugh wants to win at everything, even Twitter and his social media presence is unreal. He's a master behind social media. Hoke couldn't even log into his gmail account.
|5 hours 7 min ago||None of them did...||
...but that used to be the reality.
Until schemes changed and coaches and teams got better...that was the reality. Michigan in Michigan Stadium was 7-0 before opening kickoff. And stapping on the winged helmet was all we needed to do against lesser teams because we were THAT much better than them.
In the 90's, we could've played our wost game of the decade and a MAC school play it's best and we still would've won. We were just so much better than many of the teams we played.
Early season noon kickoffs versus lesser opponents used to be more like scrimmages than games. I remember I'd barely watch the other team, I'd watch how our guys were progressing.
Now the conference is better, college football is better and we're worse...all at the same time. The winged helmet means nothing to another team. We have to play well to beat anyone.
|5 hours 12 min ago||Not buying it...||
Hoke basically said the exact same stuff...how do you think MANBALL started?
In the end, Harbaugh's just a better football coach, it's that simple. In order to play football, you have to have toughness, it's a pretty obvious statement.
Rich Rod wanted toughness, Hoke wanted toughness, every football coach wants toughness. It's essential to winning unless you're 5 times more talented than the team you're playing - which isn't the case in D1 college football.
The game of football is tough, both mentally and phycially by nature. Obviously you want to be the toughest team on the field.
None of this is news and none should get the fan base all excited. The last coach said the exact same thing.
Get excited because Jim Harbaugh is a MUCH better football coach than our last one - and arguably our best coach since Bo Schembechler.
|6 hours 35 min ago||Question||
If Dymonte Thomas, Shane Morris and Kyle Kalis had 3 stars...would any of you list them?
It's not like ANY of those guys are 2nd year players. They're each a verteran at this point and not one has really done anything. Kalis has done the most, but he's also played more than the other 2.
It's just weird to watch their names pop up year after year and they haven't shown anything that says "next year that guy is going to be GREAT!"
They may have shown that by their last year they may be serviceable...like Jamar Adams, or Brandon Harrison, or Todd Howard, or Morgan Trent. But none of those guys were world beaters...they just got pretty good their senior year - especially compared to earlier in their careers.
Shane Morris looked like the worst starting QB in Michigan history in his most recent start and now he's going to be a breakout player? Kalis hasn't been all-B1G, just average over his career and Thomas' biggest play is a blocked punt.
At least if you go back and look at Stribling's first year, you see a guy who was always in position, but just some bad luck or 1 detail away from a huge play. The potential is right there in front of you. I get that type of mention.
I'm not trying to rag on the guys...but why these guys? Why not Terry Richardson? Why not Ross Douglas? Why not Ja'Ron Dukes?
|6 hours 46 min ago||He is not going to be used as a decoy...||
Talk about ridiculous.
Watch this: http://www.btn2go.com/video/big-ten-icons-charles-woodson
Look at Carr's reaction to the thought that he'd use Woodson as a decoy. Brandstatter also laughs it off.
If Charles was in, he was getting the ball. Peppers, same thing. Unless he's full time on offense.
|6 hours 47 min ago||We'll see I suppose||
I'll give it to you, but I just think it's that we've agreed to allow this company to officially licence the logo.
I'm not saying they're fake...I'm just saying, I don't think we'll wear them.
The block M is licensed by a million companies and we don't use or wear the product, I think this is one.
|6 hours 54 min ago||then that would make it par||
then that would make it par for the course.
|6 hours 55 min ago||Ray did the same thing last year||
He called Peppers the best player on the team and the only elite player before he ever played a down last year.
There's going to be a ton of comments like this...not just with Peppers, but with the QBs, RBs and WRs...any position with a competition or high profile recruit.
He works for the media...why should he keep it to himself? That would be a little counterproductive.

Sidenote...it's funny watching some people just list their favorite player because of, well, starz
|1 day 2 hours ago||No shame.||

His tweet in Paris was perfect.
"I'm not a food critic, merely a blunt instrument who only knows football."
|1 day 7 hours ago||I haven't done one of those in so long...||
It's too hard with a new coach, too much up in the air. If I can get some practice rumblings, I'll definitely do one during fall camp. Right now it would just be a bunch of /'s and you'd be teasing me because of them.
I'll wait until I hear more about scheme and I hear who's playing well in fall camp.
|1 day 19 hours ago||AWESOME stuff in this article||
Harbaugh is going to rub some folks the wrong way in 3 years, no question about it...but I have 0.00% doubt that we'll be elite in 3 years. None. ZERO.
I said ELITE, not good, not even great. We will be an ELITE team when it's all said and done.
This guy is so competitive and is going to find every way possible to win - now he's at a place where he cares more than anything in the world outside of his family, because it IS his family.
Sometimes I get caught up in the hype, then I read articles like this and realize we have one of the very best football coaches in the WORLD.
|1 day 19 hours ago||I miss NCAA Football||
For whatever reason, this interview makes me want to get a dynasty going. Seeing the players and being a fan of them individually and wanting them to succeed...I need something to hold me over.
I can't wait to watch and analyze every second of every game.
