FWIW, GoBlueNorth...I went to high school with your wife ;-)
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Well...||
That worked out well...for Harbaugh.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||HUGE||
Huge pickup for us. Top Center prospect on our board, should have been a long drawn out battle with OSU.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||I agree||
Yeah, I agree...I bet there are a lot more than 2,500. The problem is people like me...who have never gone to one of these meetings.
|2 years 29 weeks ago||If we lose all three...||
If we lose all three, then things get interesting.
Can Levert make the jump next year that Stuaskas made this year (or even, say, 75% of the jump)?
Can Irvin replace GRIII?
Can Chatman/Doyle/Donnal step it up?
And is Horford really a starter?
I think if we lose all 3, we are probably a 20 win team, maybe a 6 seed or so next year. Not bad, all things considered.
And if any of the sophs return..that is just a cherry on top.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Other sources||
Other sources have shot this down. Let this rumor die quickly.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Just for the record||
For the record, what was our stats last year?
|2 years 36 weeks ago||I don't care that much...||
..because regardless, I can't seem him at UM.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||No way.||
I refuse to believe this.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||LOL||
My freshman year at UM...Desmond and I had a poli sci class together.
|2 years 50 weeks ago||No idea||
No idea why he is retiring. I am a political wonk, and this is definitely a bit of a surprise. He would be favored to keep his seat next year.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Re: ND||
Brian here did a post a couple years ago how ND was perfect...a school that has big prestige, but that we generally dominate.
Going to be tough to replace that combination.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Meh.||
With two weeks left, should be fine.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||2014?||
Are we sure this is a 2015 guy?
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Bama lock.||
If he is in AA (and it looks like he is), it is probably because he was happening to visit anyway. But...weird.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Shouldn't surprise||
Shouldn't surprise anyone. That rumor has been out for a while. Basically it is Fournette or bust, with Ballage being still recruited as a RB/athlete.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||As for..||
As for the third transgression, sounds like a 2013 Freshman is suspended or something...may have to do with a drinking charge. It sounds minor.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||For more background...|
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Re: Winovich||
Couple comments make it sound like even if he does commit, he would be 'soft'.
Not true. One reason for his hesitancy is his school really hates decommitments...so Chase, if committed, likely is committed for the long haul.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||1 hour||
Agree with the above...but even at Amsterdam, a 1 hour lay over is tough. Don't be shocked if you miss it.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Um...right||
Look, I am an avowed Webber fan, have said so many times.
But Webber owes the Univ an apology. Any offense the university did to him was minor in comparison.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Yes, he is eligible, but...||
Ryan is eligible for the medical redshirt. But it is far from automatic. Furthermore, it gets sticky...if the NCAA thinks he is ready to play this year, they may dismiss the application for that reason too.
So if he is fit to play, he is better off playing.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Yes, please||
There is really no downside to this, assuming we have schollie space. This is a no brainer.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Don't feel that bad.||
I actually don't feel that bad. I know, I should, but I don't. I think this is the first step to bigger and better things.
My gut tells me that only Burke is going to leave. THJ did not have a good tournament...would he even be a first rounder?
I think we are going to be pretty good next year. How good depends on how fast our freshmen develop.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Easy...||
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Feel your pain||
Working at 5 AM this morning, and tomorrow too. Tomorrow is going to really suck to recover after the game...much more if we dont win.
But as for productivity...yeah, today is going to be like the day before Christmas vacation, me thinks.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Pathetic.||
|3 years 29 weeks ago||I was...||
Near the tear gas in 1992.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Pallante||
Is a greyshirt.
Yeah, give him a year or two in Mattison's system...he could really be an impact pickup.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Re: Chris Webber||
I have said this before, but I think it bares repeating.
I entered Michigan in the fall of 1991 like Webber and the Fab Five. I grew up in Southfield, MI, and had a lot of friends at Country Day when Webber was there....so we knew each other. I would not say we would be called friends, but definitely acquaintenances. And I had met Jalen Rose before I even knew he was going to Michigan.
We had common friends in Ann Arbor as well, and I had been to several parties with members of the Fab 5.
When Webber was there, he lived the life of a poor student. I know now he took money while there, but he was not driving around in a Cadillac or throwing money around. That simply was not the reality.
What this letter says, and what many of us that were around at that time, is NOT to excuse what Webber did. He broke the rules, no question. But in hindsight, look at his punishment, and then look at others that have done similar things. Did Webber really commit a crime greater than Reggie Bush, Cam Newton, and some of these others? And did they ever suffer as much from this as he has?
So to say that Webber should not be 'punished' is silly. He has been punished. In fact, I would argue he and the University of Michigan were punished far more than equivalent offenses elsewhere.
The question really is, can we at some point forgive? 20 years have gone by. TWENTY YEARS. Look at the people in society we have forgiven. This week, there was news that a former terrorist partially responsible for the deaths of three men in the 1960s was given a prestigious professorship at Columbia University. We can forgive murder but not this?
We need to move on. Webber should apologize for what he did, but UM should accept his apology and bring him back into the fold. That is the only way this episode ever ends, and the circle is complete.
