They're roasting a 21 year old?
I miss the good ol' days of comedy...

|21 hours 28 min ago||Anyone know if Reese was offered as a LB or a FB?||
|21 hours 30 min ago||I like this idea...||
Only do it during home coming...and mix this with WD's idea of the press box.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Agreed.||
It should be like this and it's like this everywhere.
However, unlike previous years, I actually think this defense is good while dominating a bad offense versus just benefiting from a bad offense.
I honestly don't see the offense coming around until the conference season. I'm just praying the defense and special teams can win us those non-conference games.
It's certainly going to take an entire summer for things to sink in and guys to develop chemisty on their own.
Expectations for the offense should be set at notch 1 until fall camp. At that time, we'll see who's real and who isn't.
I said it last week, I'd actually prefer to watch fall camp this season more than go to some games this year. I think it'll be that interesting and that exciting. Guys will know "the way" it'll just be about developing and executing.
|1 day 5 hours ago||The DL better step it up||
Because I think this is one of the best secondarys we've had in quite some time.
We do need more depth at safety though, I'm hoping Thomas and Hill can take the step to becoming starters quality players behind Wilson and Peppers. Clark, too. And wouldn't be shocked to see Kinnel get some early run.
We have four starting CBs for the first time in a long time. I'll take that. Would like to get four starting safties as well.
However, none of that is going to matter if we can't get pressure on the QB.
I've heard a lot of Marshall hype, Ojemudia has shown flashes to run the passer and Taco looks ready to be a high-level performers. Certainly more athleticism.
If we stay healthy and continue progressing, we have a shot to have an elite defense.
|1 day 5 hours ago||The board at MLive sucks||
But I'll give them this... MLive fluff content is vastly superior to anyone else. Great job guys. It's hard to meet deadlines and articles off the same tired quotes or ideas, but they go out of the way to get a fresh take on the matter - that makes it worth reading.
Hats off to that staff.
|1 day 16 hours ago||This would make me so happy||
...so I'll choose to ignore for fear of being so sad.

|1 day 17 hours ago||Random quote of the day...|
|2 days 16 hours ago||OSU and FSU||
OSU is the winner because it's actually part of the helmet and if you're a fan, it is cool to see guys "grow up" throughout the year.
FSU makes their's work, but the main spear is the best part of their helmet.
Everyone else isn't even noticed...it's clutter.
Really, if you can't devote an entire half of your helmet to the stickers, you shouldn't be doing it at all.
Just my opinion.
I love the concept of the stickers, I hate that so many helmets are cluttered by them. Just keep a chart in the locker room.
|2 days 16 hours ago||What are those things?||
What are those things? Spears?
|2 days 17 hours ago||I want to know now||
That way I can analyze it and make up a bunch of inaccurate assumptions.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Challenging him?||
He flat out states that Strib along with Lewis and Countess are the only CBs ready to go. He called Brandon Watson out by name and says he needs to step up. I'm very encouraged by Strib being ready when it's still March. With Lyons coming that gives us 4 CBs. 2 big and 2 smaller guys.
My only question now is if Lyons is going to be good enough to beat out Countess for a starting spot. If so, you can have your taller/longer guys in the boundary (Lyons starting and Strib backing him up) and you put the other 2 in the field/wide side (Lewis starting with Countess backing him up).
When's the last time we have 4 starting CBs?
|2 days 18 hours ago||Someone should tweet this picture to Harbaugh||
...because it's not going to look any better than this.
I hate having them, but if we're going to have them. This is defiitely the route to go. You're not going to be able to read anything or see an outline of a Wolverine head either, so the fact that it's small is pointless.
The only then I'd do is center the jersey number sticker at the very bottom of the middle stripe.
|2 days 18 hours ago||lol||
And you would be able to make out a Wolverine outline?
|2 days 18 hours ago||It says that the QBs are right there...||
...that there is no clear leader and that the true freshman with 11-12 practices under his belt could very well be starting.
|2 days 18 hours ago||If you push your laptop away and squint really hard...||
...they kind of do.
|2 days 18 hours ago||If true...||
...this is a VERY nice pick up. Gives us a some more depth and flexibility on the line.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Whatever man...||
One of the oldest kids on the team, a 5th year player and former walk-on...I got nothing for the kid. Stay out of trouble and stay off the booze or go get yourself some help. Be a good teammate, be a better man. Time to grow the fuck up and be a leader whether that is on the field or off the field by showing your teammates the right way to deal with a real life issue.
Pick one and be a leader. Enough is enough with the guy.
|2 days 18 hours ago||This is interesting...||
Pretty much confirms that Peppers is the best play on the team.
Also tells a lot about the QB situation. Not that it's set in stone, but Malzone has to be right there and he's clearly earned the respect of his teammates.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Same...but they are here...||
so we may as well get over it.
|3 days 5 hours ago||I am sorry||
...but I think those look awful, huge, too OSU like, you can not see the design...and most importantly it clutters the best helmet in college football.
You also can't get enough stickers on the helmet. Helmets look stupid if they're full and they barely have 10 stickers on them.
|3 days 5 hours ago||You would never know what it was||
too detailed for something that small...up close it may be okay, but you'd never be able to make iout the picture otherwise.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Me?||
I say no footballs...just little Block Ms...they are recognizable and if they're small like FSU rather than big like OSU (or Bo's Michigan) then it won't clutter the helmet.

|4 days 1 hour ago||great answer to the big brother question||
completely flipped it with a relevant analogy.

The team apparel Adidas catalog has been out for awhile now...if you go to their website they now upload catalogs online. My school is Adidas and we had to place our orders for our fall sports. It also includes exclusive sections for Michigan, IU, Wisconsin and UCLA.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Simple changes make some of these items a ton better...||
1. On the skinny M hat....remove the M on the back and the logo on the side and put a maize weed leaf logo on the back signifying that it's the old school hat. Similar to everything they did for UTL 1, use the classic logo for classic apparel. 3 logos clutters a hat.
2. Basic team sideline polo looks good...it's what every Adidas school will wear. No issues.
3 & 4. This 90s block style is strictly for kids born in the 90s. If you were born from 75-85 you probably already did this Fresh Prince, Kris Kross, old school Nickelodeon style once. Don't repeat it. That said they need to separate these items to almost show that they're for 15-25 year olds. If you're over 25, neither the shirt nor the shorts is for you. Neither is the hightop fade that is supposed to come with this stuff.
5 & 6. The jackets are fine...but Adidas doesn't have to pimp themselves with the stripes like on the first one. Just do a logo on the right chest like the white one.
7. This hat goes with #3 and #4. The logo on the back should be smaller, nice touch with MICHIGAN under the brim.
8. This hat is hideous...plus it's a trucker hat...lol
|4 days 2 hours ago||So if they took the 3 stripes||
So if they took the 3 stripes off the sleeve and put and Adidas logo on the right chest or in the middle on the back below the collar...you wouldn't know what brand it is?
They literally show the ability to do this on the white jacket immediately following the one with the stripes down the sleeves.
