"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

I can. I have lived in metro Detroit my whole life and have experience the incompetence of the Lions just as long.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||So I see your logic is to||
So I see your logic is to save all your cash and put it in the bank. A lot of good that will do you if you don't live long enough to enjoy it. The problem is we aren't talking about life and financial security. We are talking about fielding the best team and winning football games. Your insurance policy is Bredeson, Swenson, Onwenu, Hamilton and others. I guess it's a bitch we burned Mason Cole's redshirt too. You play your best players. In most cases that is not true freshman. When they are your best players you play them.

Red shirting is important to teams who don't recruit at the top level and need more time to develop talented players (I.e. MSU in the past). It is way less important to teams that recruit at Michigans level. And there is absolutely no indication that Harbaugh won't be able to recruit with the best of them. Put the best team on the field.

The Team The Team The Team. Who gives a shit about redshirts. The objective is to win games over personal achievements. The fact that many on this board don't understands this baffles me.

This is the lowest point ever of being a Michigan Wolverine. I'm 53 years old.

I believe it if Jabrill admitted to it but then why was Jabrill closing in on Jehu at the end of the run? I must have watched the replay 10 times and loved the block that Jabril set as well.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Am I the only one who is||
Am I the only one who is getting pretty annoyed with all the discussion on this board regarding rankings? I only care about wins and losses. The rankings will take care of itself.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I totally agree with that||
I totally agree with that perspective. How would we be doing if all we had was Morris to throw in there this year? Considering Harbaugh believes he is our best QB by far (who is going to doubt him) we could be a lot more disappointed.

Forget the watch. Did you check out the specs that Harbaugh had on? Maybe Im oblivious to things like that but it is the first time I've noticed him wearing reading glasses to see the playlist.

I agree wholeheartedly. As someone who has lived in this state my whole life the list is almost laughable. To not include Grosse Pointe and Birmingham somewhere in the top 5 shows the writers complete ignorance of our state.

I don't completely disagree with you. I love York for being so arrogant and a moron. However, I want San Francisco to fail spectacularly so in a way that makes them my enemy...

Only our coach would travel to France to eat Mexican food. He could have saved himself a few thousand miles. Now me, I'm partial to French food in France.

Maybe the answer he got is we're signing with Nike...

It says a lot about the state of football in Michigan when only seven players from the state make the list of top 300. It would be interesting to see the breakout by state.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||I'm friends with the family||
I'm friends with the family and I can tell you that it is absolutely true. I can also say that his friend lured him to Detroit with the understanding that they were going to buy some drugs but actually planned all along to kill him and take his money and car.

Agreed. I come for the information but do little posting anymore due to the contentious and caustic attitudes of many people. This board seems to attract them.

I've been to the beaches and to the cemetery. I am a pretty jaded person usually but I was really moved by the experience. What is so ironic is how peaceful and beautiful it is. The waves are quietly rolling in and the birds are singing and yet you try to get your head around the carnage and gore that took place on that very spot. You find yourself whispering even though there is no other person in sight. Few people realize that France gifted the cemetery land to the U.S. and it is actually American soil.

I wish I had gone on to my true passion of being an architect. Instead I went into computer science and did alright for myself.
The reason I didn't follow the architect path was because I heard that it took a lot of schooling and the pay wasn't that great. Then after I had settled on CS i realized one of my good friends was fraternity buddies with the son of a well known architectural firm in the area. Oh well.

I wonder if they are wearing Nike or Adidas? Still looking for the swoosh.

It's an ego thing. Nike brand specialists want to put their personal stamp on a design. It's their way of making a name for themselves.

I think it's time for Harbaugh to troll Auburn on Twitter...
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Have you ever been to a Nike||
Have you ever been to a Nike outlet store? Same issue. There is no perfect solution. I like the post about separate contracts for football, basketball and other sports. Makes too much sense and there is too much money at stake for it to ever come to pass.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||I think we should sign two||
I think we should sign two contracts. One with Nike for shoes and one with Adidas for clothes. I prefer Adidas clothes. My workout shirts, pants and shorts I buy look great and last a long time. I am perplexed why the Michigan gear they develop doesn't look as good. However, having said that I don't really like the stuff Nike has designed for other programs either. I usually like simpler styles rather than the stuff that appeals to 10 year olds. I also prefer Nike shoes and think they just have better quality and more technology built into them.
The one thing I'm certain of though is that no matter who wins the contract people on this blog will be bitching about it within the year. Loyalties seem to run deep.

I think someone should piss on his door handle. Then maybe some other Kentucky fans will join in.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Best High School Game||
I don't know about best high school team but the best high school game I ever saw was the 1994 Michigan High School Championship game. SCS Lake Shore was down 36-37 to East Grand Rapids when Michigan's own Travis Conlan took an inbound pass and while being fouled threw up a prayer that went in out rolled around the rim and in again to take a 38-37 lead with 2 seconds left. The team finished unbeaten with a 28-0 record after finishing 26-1 the previous year.
