|11 hours 29 min ago||FUCK.||
|16 hours 52 min ago||He gone.||
Whatever...there are more. Maybe we can turn Isaac Nauta into a man.
No Upshur, Nauta or Chris Clark does sting though, I don't care how we want to sugarcoat it.
And I know, Harbaugh shits TEs in his sleep...so I'm not worried, but you still want the best talent. I hate that argument...just like the Beilein argument. Yes, he makes underrated players better, but look what the guy did with highly rated players - we almost won a national championship and one was B1G Player of The Year in his 2nd season.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Here||
A handful of teams...plus recent bowl games like Miss St., S. Car and KSU have added teams.
|1 day 11 hours ago||He'll never be OT||
That said, Hackett has been a GREAT AD and he's made some BIG TIME moves while at Michigan.
But this thread implies those moves (what the fans see) are what make a great AD. Hiring a great football coach, getting rid of jerseys, and an apparel deal don't make a good AD.
Want me to prove it? If Brandon did all 3 of those things...I still wouldn't think he's a great AD. I wouldn't think he's dog shit...but he definitely wouldn't be great. Just like Hoke for winning a BCS Bowl game (forgot about that, didn't you?) - he's not a dogshit coach, but he's far from great. Winning a BCS game didn't make him great, agreeing to a night game didn't make him great, beating OSU in year 1 didn't make him great.
Hackett has done some awesome things, but it's the things you don't see that make him a great AD. Not hiring a coach, getting the swoosh and eliminating patches. If you think that's what makes an AD...1. you're an idiot, 2. you're shorting all great ADs, 3. you're shorting Jim Hackett.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Harbaugh||
|1 day 17 hours ago||Awful thread.||
|1 day 19 hours ago||Photos?||
What photos? How can I see these photos?
|1 day 19 hours ago||Well don't get too excited||
In a season where we're playing @Wisc, @PSU and @Ark...then have MSU and OSU at home.
That last OPEN date is likely going to be a MAC opponent at home before we go on the road to Camp Randall.
|1 day 19 hours ago||So they're going back to retiring the numbers?||
It says we're getting rid of legends jerseys...but we're also going back to retiring the numbers?
Not a fan of that.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Amen||
They look awful and they clutter the best helmet in all of sports.
Just make a big ass board in the locker room and put the stickers on the board.
OR if they have to go on helmets...put then on practice helmets.
Game helmets should be clean - just maize, blue, and winged. It's the only way.
|1 day 23 hours ago||What's the point?||
He's still likely a backup...I suppose if you think he's the 3rd best safety and he and Peppers and Wilson are head and shoulders above EVERY other option...then maybe it makes sense.
Then you have Peppers and Thomas next year.
But there's really no point to it. Both he and Delano Hill will be back next year to start opposite Peppers along with Kinnel.
|1 day 23 hours ago||They both look stupid||
No to the all white uniforms...no to the all maize (unless it's in a spring game versus the all blue uniforms).
|1 day 23 hours ago||I would in a spring game||
All maize vs. all blue...the Maize & Blue Spring Game.
I'd never want to see EITHER in a regular season or bowl game.
|1 day 23 hours ago||This is always a most depressing summer exercise||
I miss being elite.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I'll say...(3-Deep)||
CB: Jourdan Lewis
S: Jabrill Peppers
|2 days 1 hour ago||IMO, we'll be okay||
This is the year Strib and the safeties should come around and this is the year I think they will.
Don't get me wrong, I still want Countess, I liked him as a starter opposite Lewis and then in the slot in nickel situations where Lyons could come on as a boundary CB.
However, I think Strib turns the corner for us this year and the safeties get Peppers, so the rest are all fighting for 1 spot and the top backup spot.
You're talking about needed to identify 3 players, and 2 of them are backups...I like those odds. Especially when you have guys with starting experience (Wilson, Hill, Thomas) in the mix.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Oh||
And we get all the 5 starz
|2 days 1 hour ago||I'll shorten it for you...||
Best case scenario is we go undefeated, we beat our rivals by a combined score of 150-0, we win a National Championship and Harbaugh signs a new 30 year contract and vows to work each year of it.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Best of luck to Fleet||
Was born just a few years late, would've been a nightmare for Rich Rod. Never a good fit for what Hoke was trying to do.
I hope he doesn't fall into the the trap of lower expectations, more free time, etc. at Tuskee - it's going to be different, for sure. Go DOMINATE athletically and academically.
|2 days 17 hours ago||If that didn't get you hype...maybe this will|
|2 days 17 hours ago||(No subject)|
|2 days 22 hours ago||Hopefull||
how do you feel about that one...I have to admit, made me cringe a little.
I usually don't mind for posts...but I hold OPs to a higher standard.
|2 days 22 hours ago||He and Josh Furman||
shouldve started at WLB, redshirted to bulk up...both would've had much better careers at Michigan.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Back to the thread||
when I saw our WR play at the spring game, I knew then it was inevitable. Especially because Harbaugh likes to play guys both ways. WR/CB, LB/FB, DE/TE
|3 days 5 hours ago||Fyi||
countdown to kickoff usually begins when the players arrive to the hotel for camp the day before.
Then they do a couple of canned previews with spring footage and summer interviews before the actual fall camp footage is put together.
|3 days 13 hours ago||nothing wrong with this...nothing wrong with Hoke's policy||
the Hoke thing was soooo overblown.
It was simple. And it was explained to me by a member of the Hoke staff as this...
1. If you take a visit...tell us first, if we commit another player at your position...we'll tell you
It was that simple. Period.

Then don't buy it.
|6 days 10 hours ago||Chris.||
|6 days 10 hours ago||He's embarrassing...||
there is no one ESPN worse than him. It's not an OSU thing, Herbie is fine and Speilman is tolerable. Galloway should be kicked in the teeth so he can never speak again. Harsh...but accurate.
