Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

|22 weeks 1 day ago||My son received his acceptance today!!||
He is undecided on a major, but super excited to begin his Michigan journey.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Huge difference in that you could see||
progress with the basketball team and the games were at least interesting. Football under Hoke has become borderline torturous to watch.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Tyrone Butterfield||
also agress with you.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||My son also is waiting for a decision from U-M admissions.||
He has a 4.2 with a 32 ACT...don't remember his SAT off hand. He is LS&A, so I'm thinking his chances are pretty good.

when it has a mechanical problem is when you are wearing a parachute.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||She's definitely got||
a bit of the "Stifler's Mom" thing going on.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||OP is catching some grief, but he has a point.||
A lot of these high profile guys that are supposedly close to an early commitment but drag it out through the whole process never seem to end up here.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Too bad Mr I wasn't the owner when Morris played.||
I guarantee Mr. I would have never let him leave town.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Recruits like Treadwell||
that are supposedly close to committing early in the process, but drag their recruitment on to the end almost never end up at Michigan. Diamond from last year comes to mind and numerous others from past years. I will be shocked, but pleased, if he ends up wearing the winged helmet.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Borland is a monster.||
So THAT is how linebackers are supposed to play.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Iverson was a much more explosive leaper than Burke.||
Iverson had several impressive dunks over bigs in his college career. I think Burke is a great player and can get to the basket well, but I think we may be jumping the gun a little bit on that comparison.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Agree about Hightower...he is awful.||
I know a guy who is good friends with Ted Hillary, who used to do a lot of B1G games with Hightower. Hillary said a lot of Hightower's fellow officials thought so much of his abilities they called him "Lowtower".
I do not recall seeing Eddie do any games this year. I wonder if he finally retired. I used to cringe every time I saw him do a Michigan game....especially when on the road.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||LOL at Dantonio cleaning up MSU.||
He suspended Robinson for one whole play. What a hardass!!
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Yeah, that didn't look good.||
Hate to see kids get injured, regardless of who they play for.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I have seen Braden in several games this year and||
while he is definitely enormous and agile, the next time I see him play with a nasty streak will be the first.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I wonder how kids||
victimized by Sandusky since 2002 and their families feel about Paterno and McQueary continuing to coach.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Am I alone (and maybe wrong) for||
wanting to see how the game would have played out differently if Harbaugh was on the U-M sideline instead of Hoke? I dare say #2 would have left the field on a stretcher and the post-game handshake would have definitely been must-see TV. Saturday might have been as good of a time for a less-than-classy response to the MSU thuggery as I have ever seen.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Leyland drives me nuts with his early bunts.||
You especially don't do it against a crappy pitcher. I could understand the argument if we had JV on the mound against CC, but not tonight when runs are likely to be plentiful. That move is going to cost them.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||I live in the Rockford district and have seen Braden||
play several times. I completely agree with your assessment. His size is legit and I think he has room to carry 20+ lbs more without much problem. His tenacity does seem to be a bit lacking, but competition level may have something to do with that. Unfortunately, the remaining games on Rockford's schedule are with the bottom three in the OK Red. I'll be curious to see if the level of intensity increases come playoff time.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||I am friends with one of the GRC assistant coaches||
and he told me that MSU is still in the picture with Harris, but he is far from the "MSU Lock" a lot of MSU fans think he is. My friend said the ND game really left an impression on Drake.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Brown may be the sleeper recruit in the class so far.....||
at least as much of a sleeper as a 4* can be anyway. I'm excited to see that athleticism at the DE position.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||Mateen Cleaves makes me want to||
jam ice picks into my ears.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||I know I didn't vote for him.||
I voted Henton, Kearney, Brundidge in that order. Anderson's numbers weren't that great considering the level of competition. I can't see him being a huge contributor at MSU next year.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Freddie and the Seven Dwarves||
I still have my jersey from that team. Tony, Scott, Mark, Eric, Gerard, any of you guys out there?
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Generally, a 1-3-1 is more effective when||
you have a lot of length on the perimeter to prevent the long cross-court and skip passes and are able to close out on shooters better. The 1-3-1 is very easy to attack when you can go over the top of it.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||I work with a guy who is good friends with a prominent||
Big 10/NCAA basketball official. Even other officials know that Hightower is awful. In fact, some of the other officials refer to him as "Low tower". How that guys continues to get prominent gigs is way beyond me. He has been awful forever.
|4 years 32 weeks ago||They generally have games running on the big screen||
at CP. The screen is in a good spot near the entrances to Mantis and M-Force.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Why would TP come to Michigan||
just to be 2nd string? : )
|4 years 34 weeks ago||I'd be willing to bet a||
I'd be willing to bet a healthy sum of money that RR has a few plays drawn up with two QBs on the field at the same time. Makes me drool thinking of the possibilities.

Only got a 7.5 from the Russian judge.
