Because at 14-0 the season won't be over
|19 weeks 5 days ago||30 and below||
The last two winters were anomallies. It is usually in the 30s and below for only three months, December, January and February. February is the worst month of the year for sure. Thanks god its a short one.

They announced Hatch will receive a medical hardship because a governing body (big ten I think) just made the decision. Nothing more complicated than that I think.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||2016||
If we take Brown or Williams we are done recruiting 2016 as well, unless there is attrition. I think you can't take Williams unless you are confident he can run the point, because Spike will be gone in 2016 (unless he takes a redshirt this year) and Walton will be gone after the year so you have no heir apparent.
Brown is likely a 1 and done so that may open a spot in 2016 as well.

Seems like he could be a solution for the strong side linebacker in the 4-3 over we ran last year.
|35 weeks 4 days ago||Who is ahead of him?||
For college, top three is reasonable. I think coach K one, then there's Pitino, Izzo, Calipari (though I put Beilein way ahead of him. Belien has done more with less) and I don't think anyone else is close. I have Belein somewhere in the # 2 to # 5 slot.

I wish Chatman looked like Smotrycz. He is just so bad right now. Hard to understand
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Just curious||
Did it ever come out what his actual injury was? Are we sure he will be 100% next year?
|37 weeks 2 days ago||too soon||
Hogan said he is going back to the Farm. He needs to graduate this semester before he could transfer. If Hogan gets beat out for the starting spot in spring, i think he reconsiders. If he wins the starting job in spring, i bet he stays. But saying that its over because he said he is going back at this point is premature.

He flat out said he would commit to Michigan if his dad were hired. However, that was a month or so ago and he may have changed his mind. His last few interviews he seemed to be leaning towards other schools. We'll see.

|1 year 5 days ago||Calliing them Ohio isn't childish||
Calling OSU "ohio" wasn't originally supposed to be a burn. It was what a lot of people called OSU in the 60s. (supposedly, I wasn't born yet). So that was what Bo called them. And thus Brady.
|1 year 5 days ago||Not see the head shot?||
There was a penalty called on that play for roughing the passer. They showed the hit on the jumbotron. He should have known even if he didn't.
|1 year 5 days ago||Sorry, your medical take is wrong||
I am a physician. A concussion just means your brain hit the inside of your skull. You do not get "knocked silly" without that happening. If Shane swooned because his leg hurt, its possible he didn't have a serious head injury. And the symptoms of a concussion can have a wide spectrum. But if he was lighthead, dizzy, had a headache, lost consiousness at all, he had a concussion and should have been yanked. And the way he was blinking as if to clear his vision seemed like his head was bothering him to me. Can't let the kid shake that off. The coaches have to take control and pre-empt the medical staff.

That is never going to happen. Interim would be Mattison or Nussmeir.
|1 year 1 week ago||play action||
I am trying to figure out how much Hoke is involved in the offense. He has said "We want to be a play action team".
Last year, Borges would run under center play action on 3rd and more than ten all the time. I thought it was because he was a fool. But now I see Nussmeir doing that same shit, and he is supposed to be a hotshot coordinator on his way to being a head coach.
So, is that Hoke mandating the stupidity? No one thinks you are going to run it on 3rd and 22, so why go under center and play action. Its a waste time and motion that hurts the qb.
I hope the offense improves as the year goes on because the best hire available to me seems to be Nussmeir. I want to blame Hoke because I can't believe that our players are that bad and the only other consistent presence is him.

will never be a DB. He plays defensive end in high school, so maybe DE if he bulks up. Kid is 6'4".
|1 year 5 weeks ago||I have a bad feeling||
that Cole is going to be really good in a couple years but that we are going to burn his redshirt for one or two starts. Once Glasgow is off suspension and Kalis is healthy, I don't see him keeping his spot. Maybe the coaches think he is good enough that he won't be here five years anyway and they want him to get experience against App State in case they need him in an emergency later, but it is very unfortunate that our interior can't push Magnuson outside.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||slot depth||
I think Ross Douglas in the slot says a lot about our tight ends. I think we will be in a lot of three and maybe some four receiver packages due to the lack of tight ends who can both block and are a receiving threat. I think we will also use a u back a lot.

York made a horrible decision and hurt someone badly and it could have been worse. That being said, his story reminded me of an NPR story I just heard about what growing up around violence does to your brain.
People who are exposed to fear and violence as a small child develop a different fight or flight response than people who don't. Its actually a natural adaptive response and people who have seen real violence experience a much greater amount of fear and have poorer impulse control.
I don't know what York's childhood was like, and his behavior is unacceptable, but I think people shouldn't act like they know what was going through his head.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Exactly||
We know for sure Glasgow is a starter since he is one of our top two linemen, with Magnuson. Mags may start at guard or tackle. Now the question is who are the other three. Makes sense to get Cole, Bosch miller and dawson reps to see if they can handle it. Its a little like preseason pro football. You don't play your for sure starters much if at all so you can see who is number 2 and 3.

|1 year 23 weeks ago||Booker||
Why?!?!? Why didn't you come to Michigan!!!???? I am happy we got MAAR but Booker would have been more of an impact player. And cleary he wasn't afraid of competition. Dammit.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Hoke plans for the whole game||
I would like to see the shotgun, read option and short passing because I believe it is our best chance to move the ball and score, but Hoke makes a gameplan with both sides of the ball in mind. He let Borges air it out more against Indiana because he knew we would need to score to keep pace. If he believes MSU can't score against our Defense, he will probably go very conservative on Offense to avoid turnovers. It will likely be a very frustrating game to watch.

We have another bye coming up

Sounds like tyrone Wheatley. I think he may have not had the ability to cut or the build of a stub in high school but he has gotten bigger and if he can hit a hole and use that speed, he could be really good if he gets good blocking.
The other thing is, freshmen miss a bunch of fall camp due to classes. Combine that with Green being hurt and it isn't surprising at all that the freshmen are further down the depth chart. I think Green will get more and more carries as the year goes on, once he is fully healed and they can trust him on blitz pickups.

My friends all come back to Ann Arbor for one game every year. These people are doctors and lawyers and such. I bought two tickets today for Nebraska with the dynamic pricing and they were for $271 a piece after fees. They're on the 50 yard line row 75, so they are good seats, but goddamn that's a lot to pay per seat for the third best game of the year. And I am trying to get one of my friends to take the other ticket but I have no takers because they are all just planning on scalping because everyone knows that you can get a ticket for way less than that outside the stadium before the game.
