Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

I think you can stop trying to push your sports travel business as I don't think there is a single Michigan fan that wants to drive two hours to see a former wide receiver potentially catch 2-3 balls against SMU for Baylor.

Just remember that Jabba has no use for smugglers who drop their shipments at the first sign of an Imperial cruiser.

I guess Willie the Wildcat and Purdue Pete didn't get the memo.

He was quoting a pretty popular phrase from The Big Lebowski, not making commentary on the Vietnam war.

One of their three followers on SoundCloud is none other than Leon McQuay III.

I don't think anyone with any knowledge of the subject would actually say that a recruit is being recruited as a return specialist. Every D1 WR/RB/DB is capable of becoming a return specialist. They all probably dominated their high schools in just about every facet of the game - including returning kicks.
I seriously hope that Dantonio isn't offering guys for their return abilities only. The only people that are saying things like this are just rationalizing why the Spartans offered a relatively low ranked slot receiver before his senior year of high school. I guarantee that MSU offered him because they saw something and think he'll be a good WR or DB(?) for them, not because he's really good at returning kicks against high schoolers.

I agree, either that or he's taking to his new found "celebrity" here on mgo and is becoming a caricature of himself.

Who would've guessed that a RDT joke was going to be the first comment? It's been one day and these jokes are already tired.

Not to be too snarky, but it's probably because they are professionals and not the evil a-holes we all like to believe them to be.
There's nothing OSU's coaches can show a kid in a drill that is going to decide The Game three years from now.

You do know that is not Brian in the photo with Shane Morris. Right?
|2 years 50 weeks ago||Your post immediately above||
Your post immediately above giving your opinion/analysis about Poggi and Hurst was informative.
This post, however, is a bunch of hooey. What makes you think Ty Isaac was sold on SC because of Snoop, fame, fortune, and the weather? We won't land every single kid that we want and it is not because the kid inherently isn't a Michigan Man because he didn't accept Hoke's "gift".
Every NCAA football coach sells the very same things you mentioned - family, tradition, integrity. If you think Saban is ONLY telling the kids "NFL, NFL, NFL", you're wrong. We've heard it from our own commits that Mattison isn't afraid of comparing recruits to his former Ravens players.
I like where your heart is, but c'mon.

Nice job! Your diagram for the first "four verts" play 11 is a copy of play 12.

I assume they'll raise it against one of the weaker teams early in the season. That way they'll get a win on the banner raising day and they could potentially sell more tickets to a game most wouldn't attend.

Are fat jokes still cool? I know we all collectively roll our eyes when we see a Hoke is fat joke by some Sparty/Buckeye/EDSBS, but somehow it's funny when Weis is the target?

I'm sure he won't read it there either, but at least it is directed in his specific direction rather than on this blog.
|3 years 1 week ago||The Big Ten and Pac 12||
The Big Ten and Pac 12 standing firm and dropping out of any playoffs to keep the Rose Bowl is simply commiting football suicide.
Nobody arguing for the Rose Bowl has addressed the various posters that have mentioned that ZERO top-shelf recruits will come to a school that can't even play in a NC playoff game. Hoke could espouse the virtues of our system till he was blue in the face and recruits would only look over his shoulder to get a better glimpse of the NC playoff promos running constantly on ESPN. Once we lose the ability to realistically recruit top players, the quality of football will drop, less fans will be interested in our teams, which leads to even weaker teams, etc.

This might be the type of law suit that doesn't result in any sort of victory in court, but the attention it has drawn could result in the school district taking another look at its try-out process.
Her son may not benefit from the suit, but it could result in the school district revisiting its policies.

Don't know what to think of Kiper anymore. Lewan at 12, but he also has three Spartans in his top 25.
edit: So that's what the moderate feature looks like.

Newsflash. There are zero cool-looking mascots.
They are all dumb looking. They are supposed to be a fun distraction for the fans attending the game. Nobody really gives a shit about them. They are harmless.
If U-M adopted one, there would be OUTRAGE here for about two days. Petitions would be made and unrealistic boycotts would be suggested. After the teeth-gnashing, everyone would have it out of their system (except for the psychos) and everyone would continue on with their lives.

Quarkback is too close to Quarterback.
Every time I see it, think to myself "hurr, Brian put the wrong position down for that guy".

I'm going to post this thread over on Bucknuts.
There can't be too many of their kind that live in OKC, recently had a birthday and have an attractive girlfriend that works with a UM fan named Corky.
Don't be surprised if tomorrow some guy with the handle OKCBuckeye is gonna have words with you for ogling his girlfriend.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Unless you think Alabama||
Unless you think Alabama would agree to visiting us in 2012 and then waiting until at least 2015 for the home matchup I don't see how we make it a home and home.
If we played Alabama at home this year, we would have two road nonconference games in 2013 or 2014. We are obligated to play UConn on the road in 2013 and Notre Dame in 2014.
The only way it would get done would be to pay off U-Conn to drop out and that amount would certainly put a dent in any profit we would make in scheduling a bodybag home game. I think I saw the buyout amount was $2M.
edit: or we just go on the road this year and have one hella awesome Home schedule next year.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||I don't think anyone is||
I don't think anyone is saying that we shouldn't cheer for UM. I think the idea was to also cheer Air Force when they first take the field rather than boo them like we usually do an opponent.
The PA announcer will no-doubt introduce the AFA in a very glowing patriotic way. Taking his cue, a majority of the UM fans will likely either cheer or at least not boo. The few who do will then look like assholes to everyone around them.
The only reason to boo would be to justify ones own belief that they are a bigger "fan" than the adults around them.

Yeah, trick was probably the wrong word. If that technique truly is a starting point to developing a reliable gait - awesome. It was probably the setting. If the video was in a rehab facility with people with lab coats, rather than in an old warehouse with music blaring in the background, I'd likely see it more as a first step in a course of treatment instead.

Let me start out that his recovery is very impressive and his continued fight to walk is inspiring.
I'm not a doctor or exercise physiologist, but isn't his walking motion more a result of the particular shoulder motion and tightening of his stomach muscles than actual leg work? I replicated the motion and my opposite leg would involuntarily lift a little.
There is no way I am discounting the courage that Brock is exhibiting in these videos, but if he isn't retraining his legs to work on command, isn't he simply learning a trick that has no practical use?
