No details in the brief blurb, one can speculate it would allow him the time to take in his son's college games? Granted, his son won't be playing until 2017 at the earliest probably.

|15 weeks 4 days ago||So in 2015...||
In 2015 our WR Corps will look like this:
RS JR's - Darboh & Chesson
So - Drake Harris
Fr - George Campbell
Well that won't suck...
...ut damn, was looking forward to seeing him play this year. Feel bad for the kid as he's worked hard and earned the right to play.
In my psuedo-panic of "who can step up?", I almost forgot about Funchess and what he brings to the table as a pass catcher. So, "nothing is fucked, you're being very undude..."

Good to see Shane where he is (201)

May want to post this in it's own. Great find.
While one can't take much from a few clips, it didn't look like Green was carrying a bunch of bad weight as some had feared after hearing he came in at 235. Other than that, just great to see football and great to see Shane throw a laser.

Like the top picture, but the Shamrock on the shoulder is way too big and the helmets should just be gold.

It's only about 2 seconds of video, but you start to understand why Gallon is so good. He sets up the defender for a move BEFORE he has caught the ball, makes the catch, puts the ball in his outside arm so he can stiff arm the other oncoming guy and walks in. Just great instincts and awareness, but zero thinkng and just reacting.
Don't want to read too much into the clips of Devin, but he does seem to have a better arm slot in the clips from over the winter vs. from the season...also seems to get his left shoulder closed more on some of those deep balls vs. the one against Iowa and the one to Dileo against Minn.
Gardner is going to have a monster year.

If I'm not mistaken, that's Shane on the far left of the group photo? He looks like he's spent a lot of time in the weight room, combined with fully recovering from mono and has physically prepared himself to see the field this year (like everyone else, I hope he can redshirt though).
EDIT: well, I think I'm mistaken now that I actually click the photo to see the larger version.
Godin looks large.

Can we assume all Freshman have arrived at this point? Or only ones that are taking a class over the summer?
|22 weeks 6 days ago||yeah, those first few plays||
yeah, those first few plays certainly felt like watching Ryan. Couldn't recall how big he was when he came in and didn't know if Furbush had the type of frame that would keep in the SLB range or had room for 35 lbs.
Will be interesting to see how the class unfolds the rest of the way and where exactly it ends up in terms of numbers.

I'm no film guru and I look forward to input from the more knowledgable posters, but at a minimum looks like a big kid with great straight line speed for his size. Rivals/Scout seem to agree he is around 230...any chance this kid grows into a wde?
Welcome aboard Noah!

I thought Hernandez looked familiar. That was him in the opening scene of 'The Last Boy Scout', yes?

It's actually a "crunch-enhancer". A non-nutritive cereal varnish that's semi-permiable. It's not osmotic. What it does, is it coats and seals the leaf, prevents the dressing from penetrating it.

Will be interesting to see if he is in the rotation as a starter or if he plays center field with the possiblity of a role as a closer as well (which I've read is possible). He's a hell of a hitter and outfielder. Great kid and good for him and his family for doing their homework.

Saw him play a hoops game this year and he had a "quiet" 33, if that's possible. Great athlete who is going to get drafted out of high school. A friend of a friend is the girl's hoops coach at his high school and said his family has been diligent in doing their research in terms of what pick/how much $ would make it a smart decision to sign rather than attend Michigan. Here's to hoping he gets to enjoy at least 3 years at UM before moving on to the pros.

Things that are being pointed out by experts/reporters on cnn/news sources. They also have department store survellaince and news footage that is aiding in identifying a POSSIBLE supsect (seen dropping the bomb, from what is being reported). CNN is backtracking and saying they have identified a suspect on film, or rather identified an indivual, but have not confirmed who that person is at this point. Again, 5PM PRESS CONFERENCE, stay tuned.
Again, I agree it's hard to assume anything from that photo. It was just an unusual reaction from that one individual the moment it went off and everyone else is going down, holding their ears.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||This Picture||
This and others in this series are part of the possible identification of a suspect:
EDIT: seems to be confusion on whether a suspect has just been identified or actually arrested. good news either way. 5pm press conference.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||With the likes of Brian and||
With the likes of Brian and this blog elevating my fandom into a well-informed obsession, it makes all of this more personal. What I mean is, I'm not upset about the loss for me, the fan. We follow these teams so closely and really get to know the players and coaches. My disappointment is for them and all of their hard work to only come so close to their dream. This team will never be forgotten and has left a special legacy for every team that follows. I feel like there was something symbolic with having Webber there, the face of the lows experienced the last 20 years.
This team, I think, finally repaired those wounds. Shall it not fall on blind eyes that next year a banner will be hung in the rafters at Crisler, a Regional Championship/Final Four banner, the exact one that was taken down in the wake of the scandal. This team shouldered the burden of replacing what's been missing in so many ways.

BTN has been heavy on Mich hoops all week and has also shown the episode of "big ten's greatest seasons" featuring the 88-89 hoops season (showcasing the league as a whole). I certainly remember the NBA talent our championship team featured and how good Illinois was that year. What I did not remember (I was 10 or so at the time), is that it was Indiana who won the Big Ten that year and that Iowa was the preseason #1 team in the country. Wow. I think they mention Michigan had 7 future NBA players on that title team, with 4 first round picks? Loaded.
|35 weeks 4 days ago||I completely agree||
...but, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, et al are not your grandfather's professional basketball player.
|35 weeks 4 days ago||So what do people think?||
At what level do you think she could compete with men? I think she'd be a decent HS boys basketball player, bordering on good at that level (in your average high school conference). Thoughts?
Cool Starry Bra: I worked with a girl out of college who played soccer at Indiana, so a good athlete in her own right. She honestly thought Lisa Leslie (the best in the wnba at the time) could compete with Shaq, she lost her mind and refused to discuss it, she was that adament. The great thing was, it was the week after Anika played in that PGA event and really struggled, and if there was ever a sport where the physical difference might, just might be mitigated a little, it's golf.
Understand I have great respect for these women athletes and am well aware that Griner and NCAA d1 players would run me out of the gym.

Oline, unkowns at the skill positions, it's all mostly been covered. I'd love to see Bellomy look sharp, confident and putting a little more zip on the ball (I know he's never going to be Brett Favre). Hoke alluded to him maybe not being 100% in that nebraska mess. The kid was a 3 star committed to a big ten school before UM offered, so there is/was some talent there, hope to see him take steps forward.

Sam Webb just tweeted that he is "hearing it was Michigan's choice and did not leave the door open for a Dawson-like return"
As mentioned, better now than this time next year. I can't imagine the staff will have a hard time finding a quality OL to fill the spot (perhaps with lower cieling, but quality nonetheless).
|45 weeks 3 days ago||Why I'm not too worried he'll||
Why I'm not too worried he'll find a spot, somewhere, eventually: the reports are not shocking thus far, they sound a lot like they are about a guy who has never played the position he is now working out against NFL level talent against. The few highlights above where he "dropped" passes, well they were shitty passes. He is fighting an injury that causes numbness in one of his hands, one of only two hands he currently uses to try and catch the ball...again, something he has never had to do even when healthy. He is fast, but that alone of course does not mean much, he is fast and knows how to run with the football in his hands. He follows/sets up blockers well, finds creases and can cut at full speed (this was the catalyst for Devin Gardner telling him, "you're the best football player i've ever seen"). He is a zero-risk draftee in terms of character.
I'm holding out some judgement until the game on Saturday. Not necessarily to see how he performs, but more so to see how he is used. This may give some indication as to how teams see him in the NFL, because we know and they know he is not a pure WR prospect.
In or out of professional football, the young man has a bright future.
