"It was a privilege," Gardner said Monday night at the Ufer Quarterback Club Banquet in Ann Arbor. "I don't think people understand how much of a privilege it was to not only be a quarterback at Michigan, but just to be a part of this university whether you're a student-athlete or not," "And I knew that as a sophomore in high school. I knew this was a special place."

The Auburn Tigers have told Kris Frost that he will not be allowed to join the Tigers in 2011.
Sorry if someone already posted.....Go Blue!
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Nervous????||
That was horrible!! talk about being scared and nervous.....probably the worst pitch I have ever seen.....Thomas could lose this for Oregon. Wow!!
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Game will be....||
Oregon will cause 3 turnovers (2 of which will be on Newton).
Lay off to much for Cam and his teammates....bad start for Auburn.
Oregon outscores Auburn 17-3 in 4th quarter
Oregon 38 F
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Its here or bust,||
We all know he is going to Michigan, but just in case he will head somewhere else if RR is fired. Stop worrying, there is nothing we can do but sit back and wait to see the show.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Great Day||
to be a Wolverine.....OSU in trouble and we finally have a verbal committment from a solid Kicker. Wow. Go Blue!!
|4 years 41 weeks ago||need another?||
If you need anyone else for your dynasty let me know, flying back could set up on Thursday.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Teams||
The #1 and #2 seeds deserve the opportunity to play these smaller teams. The NCAA tournament is one solid sporting event we can look forward to each year. 64 teams is enough! Joke.
Having four play in games sounds a little far fetched. Sorry man, don't agree with this one.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Moved down south||
I moved down to Florida from Michigan in 2006, the school I teach at gave me the nickname "Yankee". Everyone knows that I love that school up north, Michigan!! So it was easy to pick this out in November or December when I joined.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||just off the top of my head||
I believe we have 14 or 15 OL on the roster, of those 11 have been redshirted at some point. Not including Pace, but we have other issues.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Smart move||
During my 2009 baseball season there was a parent who was having issues with their sons playing time, and he was wondering why I wasn't playing him enough. So this father pulled me aside and asked me a few questions about why he wasn't playing.
Then about two weeks later this parent calls me up and puts me on the spot, he says the following "my son came home and went straight to bed last night, he didn't eat or anything. The next morning we asked him what was wrong and he said that Coach *** (me) was not playing him in baseball games because the parents had a conversation with me".
He then told his parents that I told him this straight to his face. This never happened and in a small community this kind of stuff can get around. I have seen students take stories and run with them and that is my only point.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||I hear what you said||
Looking back on this story now, if you didn't know the truth how would you have handled it? Coach to coach.
I think this is a tough situation, but I want to make a point by saying that even though you know your children that shouldn't be the final indicator of what your actions would be.
There are always two sides to a story, so I have always believed that looking at both sides is the best way to go. After looking at your post I thought you were basing your actions solely on your childrens side. My bad, please address the questions above because stories like this happen all the time.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||nice||
He has a lot of ground to make up!!
I have a feeling that he will pick it up in the future. Everywhere he has left they were ranked 1st or won their last game (Title at GVSU, bowl win w/ CMU and 13-0 with Cincy).
I hope we are more successful then them and if his recruiting class is this bad then we can gain even more ground on Notre Dame.
Don't feel sorry, but he will figure it out.....hopefully it will take him some time.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||really?||
Do you coach? Do you have any idea what students can say to turn things around on coaches? I am not saying that Leach or any other coach deserves a free pass, but to say that you wouldn't even sit down to talk about the situation is amazing.
What are you going to accomplish by doing this? If the student is right or wrong, that doesn't bother you? I agree that if Leach was wrong he should pay with his job. To say that no matter what I would get revenge even if I found out later that my son lied.....just because he's your son that doesn't mean that everything he does is correct. Just to remind you.
Maybe you should try coaching some time!!
|5 years 14 weeks ago||her lawyer||
worst part about the interview was the lawyer for the defendent, he says "it was both parties faults because they allowed her to have access to the money, and with no rules or procedures she didn't have a chance to say no". AKA it was to tempting.....are you kidding me, those people are what's wrong with our society today.
As he exits in his $100,000 vehicle!!

USC is a minor league program
b. College Football
***that's why they aren't worried about sanctions
|5 years 15 weeks ago||I like||
Either the number 8....Mouton and Sheridan had this previously. Or the number 6....Move Stokes to a different number, and Warren has left the building.
#6 or #8
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Not enough offers||
I like the idea that some of our recruits don't have these top schools after them. The idea that these kifs have something to prove sounds great to me.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||what a||
what a problem to have....4 Quarterbacks. Let the games begin.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||RR||
RR and signing day always a good combination. Like to sign Black and Parker if possible. Black is going to be hard though. Baxter is a tough pull, but something says RR will make a nice run at that kid...if he is willing to listen.
|5 years 16 weeks ago||cold weather||
There were snow flurries in Miami the other night, it can get cold where ever Grimes chooses to play. Grimes doesn't want to play for Michigan, good luck somewhere else. We will move on like always!!
|5 years 16 weeks ago||RB's||
We lose Minor and Brown and an ACL tear with V. Smith. We now find out that Drake will not qualify...Great time to get Dillon Baxter!!
|5 years 16 weeks ago||RR||
RR was the coach on the day he verbally committed 7/29/2007. Nice!!
|5 years 16 weeks ago||What??||
Hold on, wait a minute. You have no enthusiasm for next year and you are trying to stay positive.
They couldn't fall forward for a first down in 2008. We were 109th in offense yards in 2008 and we went up to 59th in 2009. We averaged a little over 20 pts a game in 2008, now almost 30 pts a game. improvement??
Yes, we hit a wall late in the season plus we were 0-5 on the road. Did you really think that a true freshman Forcier could take us to the promise land. You were one of those who bought into the hype about 3-9 one season to 9-3 the next season. You thought it will all work out and that some how we would be back.
Anyone who knows football understands that changing an offensive system from Pro style to a Spread offense will take some time. Don't judge after two years, give him 3-4 years then you can sit and say Yes or No.
Impatient Fans does not equal success for Michigan. It takes time, and YES.....stay positive!
Defense is young, and give them time with Coach Robinson.
|5 years 16 weeks ago||Boise State||
Hard to argue with a record of 93-11 over the past 8 seasons. No one wants to see Boise State run the table and sit at 12-0 and #1 in the nation. Sorry, that scares people.
Preseason poll with Boise State top 5 is a long shot!
|5 years 17 weeks ago||find another system||
Eveyone has their opinions on the BCS, but this system sets up a hand full of teams to win the title. In reality only 15% of the nation can win the title based on preseason rankings.
What other sports have the same screwed up system?
All other major sports professional or amateur levels allow for teams to have a shot no matter what they are predicted to do in the preseason. Every year we hear Yankees and Mets or Red Sox and Dodgers to play in World Series. Glad that doesn't happen every year.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||good the year before and ranked high??||
End of regular season records
09:TCU- 12-0 PS=17th Final=3rd
**Just out of reach for all of these schools. none of them have a chance based on preseason rankings. Look at Boise State?? You think they deserve a higher ranking then 14th, takes the preseason polls 8 years to see a connection with success and Boise State. Wow!! 93-11 over the past 8 seasons and they still can't break the top ten...think about it!!
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Agree||
Now I know what Notre Dame feels like, always playing for nothing!! Not in the top 15 in the preseason poll then you have a 4% chance to play for the national title.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||USC||
2009- 3rd (#9)
Look for a 9th or 10th preseason ranking....it's USC. Past history says they better be in the top ten or they have a slim chance of playing for the national title.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Can't go wrong w/ Bull Durham||
Eddy: God, that sucker teed off on that like he knew I was going to throw a fastball!
Crash: He did know.
Crash: I told him.
