“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

|41 weeks 1 day ago||Also the fact that Matt Millen was||
Dogging the defense as bad as he was? Are you kidding me? I saw one good Penn State drive in the first half that wasn't started by the offense coughing it up. Mattison gets his defense playing out of his mind and his counterpart on offense is sitting in the booth screaming "I DONT CARE IF WE LOST YARDS RUNNING AGAIN ON 1ST DOWN ITS WHAT WE DO!" Hack played decent for a freshman, he'll even great in the last drive where he put the ball exactly where he needed too, TWICE. Reality is the offensive play calling left the door open through the 4th quarter and 4OTs and we see how that turned out. Bill O'Brien went for it on 4th down in his own territory and got stuffed while we continued to run into a line that can't open a single hole for positive running yards bc that's what we do.

"We're going to call plays like we have a running game because that's what we do."
|48 weeks 2 days ago||I was watching and||
the weirdest thing about the hit is that it was completely clean. QB was rolling out to his right near the sideline, tried to square up to throw downfield and the defender just tackled him cleanly. The defender definitely DID NOT lower his helmut and it looked as if there wasn't contact between their two helmets. That being said the defender did hit him pretty hard and then he hit the ground hard. I've read just as much as anyone else about concussions but without being a Dr who knows - seems that there was a strong possibility that if he had one earlier in the game it made the repercussions of this hit worse.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||I can confirm that this is 100%||
correct. Every game my senior year I got to my seats before kickoff to watch as sorority girls dressed like they were going to anything but a football game (literally, nothing maize or blue) would roll in plastered between halfway through the 1st Q and halftime. The worst part is the reason I noticed them is that they would walk down past my seats to where theirs were in front of ours.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||One more thought on the subject ...||
in my post-loss rage I did end up unfriending about 10 people on Facebook making comments about Ohio. Irony #1? None of these people actually went to Ohio. Irony #2? Oh yeah, that team lost WEEKS ago.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||This article really sums up||
the season perfectly. There was a point last night while watching the game that I thought "damn we're really getting screwed on these calls, this is why I hate basketball." As I sat there watching our team try and fight and stay in the game in the 2nd half, this thought was replaced by "regardless of whatever happens in this last 20 minutes, this is one of the most amazing team's I've ever watched in my life."
I live in Texas and was 50/50 on attending the games in Dallas until a few friends convinced me to go by reminding me "you never know how long you're going to be in Texas" and "how many times will you get to see your team play in the Sweet 16?" I ended up going and had seats right above where Michigan came onto the floor and couldn't have been more happy that I attended. Were the wins awesome? Of course. But I think what will stick with me more is how this was a TEAM. No egos, one guy after the other stepping up out of nowhere to contribute to the win. After watching these guys run back to the locker room after two wins, I'm never going to forget how genuinely excited they were to win. Mitch McGary is running up the tunnel, jumping as high as humanly possibly to high five everyone leaning over the railing to try and congratulate them.
Congratulations to this team, to Beilein and to the entire coaching staff. Its amazing to see a team win and do it what feels like the 'right' way. No trash talk, no egos, just one guy after another stepping up and putting the TEAM first.

its called "time spent at work."
|1 year 42 weeks ago||First time I've actually watched||
one of these and Gorgeous Al has an awesome voice. Who knew?!?
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Don't forget to bring some||
bug spray as well. West Nile problems going on in Dallas right now.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||I live in Midland and||
as far as the ESPN games I've had good luck with catching all of them. It seems like even if UM games get bumped from ESPN or ABC, they end up on ESPN2 or ESPNU and all the games are usually available on ESPN3. If you've got B10 network then you're good to go.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||In regards to twitter and social media ...||
I think it should be addressed on two different levels. For recruits still in high school the parents should set the standard for what they allow their kids to do. Does this country not work like that anymore? When I was in HS I didn't have a cell phone, but with that being said my younger brother got one when he was 14 - but my parents are the ones that were responsible for this decision. Obviously parents are going to have a HUGE range of opinions on this and it seems to be a given now that even kids in HS NEED cell phones. I read something recently that a recruit had said about people calling him constantly to try and get more information from him and all taht I thought was "wow I'd probably be inclined to turn off my cell phone."
As far as once they get to college I've always kind of thought that athletes getting in trouble in college gets WAY overblown. Obviously some of the issues are serious and I'm certainly not trying to downplay the seriousness of a DUI ... but if you take 100 college athletes and 100 college non-athletes and compare the number that get in trouble with the law, I would be pretty shocked if the numbers weren't comparable (how many friends did you know that got MIPs?). For twitter - the players can control that. I've never been in a position to have that much attention focused on me and maybe it is overwhelming to the point that you can't get enough, but if you choose to keep your life private, you can do it. Its all a matter of how much you are willing to share.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Also, in regards to Paul Brown Tiger Stadium||
the facility really is first class. Its an older stadium but theyve taken care of it - fieldturk and covered seating on the home side. Massillon is one of the most storied programs in the state and the town really does revolve around football. They touched on it briefly but right next to the stadium theyve got an indoor fieldhouse that's less than 5 years old. I've seen it in person and it definitely is comparable with Al Glick Fieldhouse - to give you some perspective.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Spotted Crable on the||
sidelines. I know that he's been mentoring high risk students at one of the Massillon middle schools in some sort of teaching capacity. Maybe he had some influence on Gareon's decision?
|2 years 13 weeks ago||There's no doubting that Brady is||
the type of coach Ohio fans would love. Hard nosed, grind it out type attitude reminds everyone of Woody and Bo. As far as with Urban, after the whole Tressel thing theyre ready to cling to any big name. Lets not forget that these same fans were calling for Tressel's head after just one loss the past couple of years. I know we went through some really rough times with RR but there isn't a true Ohio fan who doesnt remember the pain and suffering they experienced with Cooper at the helm. They want someone who's going to talk big and beat Michigan, as long as that happens they'll be happy.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||So how do you||
get caught doing this. I remember during the school year I'd see the gate at the parking lot off of S Division broken at LEAST once a month.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Very rare. B10 is hands down||
the best wrestling conference. Like the equivalent of the SEC in football, if not even more dominant. Throughout the B10 season a wrestler is bound to see multiple wrestlers from the top 10 in the country. When you take this into account and that the matches between top teir wrestlers are typically so close this is really amazing. Congrats Kellen!
|2 years 32 weeks ago||I'm glad that somebody finally said||
something. I mean I understand how its profitable for the NCAA to have OSU be a good team but I can't remember EVER hearing something happen like this before. If the NCAA was gonna grant this waiver wouldn't all schools that were making a coaching change do this?
|2 years 32 weeks ago||They were talkings about this on ESPNradio||
the other day. Unfortunately(?) the Kardashians are such a huge brand that whatever Odom's salary is pales in comparison to what that family makes in a year. Hope that they dont end up like Kim and her former(?) husband.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Got sick of hearing that LSU and Alabama||
were the best two teams in the country ... when there were still games to play. How can you make up your mind with games left to play by some of the teams in contention? Really dislike that some of these voters make up their mind before everything is decided on the field.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Couldn't believe that Va Tech||
was ranked #5 today before their game today. Their conference schedule was terrible.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||When Boise State lost||
it was a close game and they dropped a ton of spots. Would expect Houston to drop even more since the game wasn't as close.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Hope that you're planning on||
wearing your Michigan gear. Got to rub it in every chance you get.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Oh also my friends and I||
managed to find about 12 students selling their tickets for the game. That's not a good sign right (other than for me since I'll be at the game)?
|2 years 35 weeks ago||I'll definitely admit that I'm||
a little worried about it. I think that moving the game to the weekend AFTER Thanksgiving doesnt help at all, I know when i was a student this was always a much needed break before finals. That being said it IS OSU and I wouldnt want to miss one of these games, even if I did have to come back early. Too bad so many classes go right up until break, I remember having a few engineering classes on Wednesday afternoon that weren't canceled while all my LSA friends had taken off earlier in the week.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||I was pretty disappointed that Bo||
Pelini kept himself so composed. I would've loved to see a meltdown on the sideline. Side note: Mike Gundy really kept it together last night too, come on guys, step up the intensity! Brady was pointing the heck outta people when Nebraska was trying to score at the end of the game.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||I really enjoy||
when we hit the time of the year that you start seeing these games during the week. With some of the shootouts that theyve had the past couple weeks its made for some good football.
