Yep..agree with this. After every incident at any school, the most annoying thing is fans of every other team trying to compare their punishments and brag about how their coach would have dealt it more seriously and punished the guy for longer. Reality is stuff happens everywhere and the fans never know the full details of what really happened, how it was actually handled internally, or the full personal history of the person...but the fans still use it as an excuse to cherry pick incidents from their school and other schools to argue that they punish kids harder.

Yep..no reason to let Nd know how the OL will change come week 2. Even if Hoke knows where glasgow will start against ND, he will make it sound like a close competition that week in practice and we wont know the lineup until ND kickoff.

Well, Kenny Allen is also the backup FG kicker and presumably can't be the holder for himself. Shane must have been in when Allen kicked as he had a few FG attempts during the scrimmage.

Agree with the Ross observation...I was guessing that before i clicked on also. Im guessing it has something to do with all the focus on this bolden/Morgan competition when it really doesnt mean much as they will both be playing alot. Throw in the hype about Jake Ryan switching to the middle and there really isnt much reason for reporters to ask questions about the SAM position when asking LB questions. In reality, alot of the preseason hype comes as response to reporters specific questions so if there isnt a question about it then little gets said on the topic.

It would be nice to be able to separate the OT posts into a separate location so the serious topics stay on the front screen longer. When I say OT, I would include in that the pointless posbang and drinking threads that clog up the msg board and add nothing.

Agree..I think his all-caps words of wisdom tricked us into thinking he was going to be a louder and outspoken guy.

Hollowell is definitely the man...I think he has to be one of Brian's favorites also from a personal standpoint as Hollowell is quite the philosopher with his all-cap tweets on twitter.

You are getting greedy now. You should fell lucky enough to know that Kalis is injured.
For how long? That is way too much info for us to get.

First thing I noticed that it was much better from the standpoint of selecting a sport to go to. Before if you wanted to select say women's softball, it was near impossible to click on the small line of text to select it. Now the selection choices are much easier even on a mobile device.

Mitch Cumstein...You should be able to give a unique perspective on this since you were expelled from college in your 4th year. However, some would argue that night putting with the daughter of the dean is not as serious of a matter.

There probably was a decent chance that Hoke had never even seen that video before the press conference occurred. He suspended York indefinitely right away presumably after hearing York got arrested and the initial details from York. Unless the police let football coaches see the video before the media can request it, then he wouldnt have seen it in advance, Given the timing yesterday of the video release, Michigan's practice, and this press conference, he likely wouldnt have seen it yesterday if he hadnt been given advance access to it.

Dinardo sends that recruiting update out every Monday morning so there wont be any more of that today...he and Dave Revsine have been good twitter follows (along with Dienhart) for the teams they have profiled to date.

Well, he did play in 11 games as a freshman... But I guess you were probably focusing more on WR experience and less on special teams experience.
|1 week 3 days ago||Why do you say that? If that||
Why do you say that? If that is the case, then it means he didnt get it as he was never mentioned today at all on the running back depth questions while he was mentioned several times earlier in the week.

Thanks. I made all the needed corrections earlier this week when i found out.

I think it means they feel Drake Johnson is 100% recovered from his knee injury.
|1 week 3 days ago||Depth chart by class just||
Depth chart by class just updated on site for his position change. I just found out the other day that users could update that thing. Ive been complaining for weeks about how that scholarship count was wrong and other errors when all the time I could correct them myself.
|1 week 3 days ago||But that would be arguing to||
But that would be arguing to burn Speight's redshirt just for the purpose of trying to hold out Shane to get one? The quotes from today have him battling Bellomy for third spot so I dont think that this year he will be the guy you want in there if Gardner goes down,
|1 week 3 days ago||Ah...I remember that one||
Ah...I remember that one well. I had expected it to turn into the usual complaining that the school accepts money from a sponsor to pay for things in the athletic program. But instead it quickly went in a different direction as the highlight of the thread was people being amazed by the fact that WolverineDevotee had never heard of Chobani.
|1 week 3 days ago||The 7.5 number has no meaning||
The 7.5 number has no meaning unless you include the current odds. Using Bovada, it looks like the current line at 7.5 wins is -165/+135 so Vegas agrees that Michigan will more than likely win more than 7.5. There are many ways to estimate what these odds translate into wins (as there was a diary on this a couple months back) but I estimate these numbers of -165/+135 for a 7.5 line translate into an expectation of about 7.9 wins.

Also Morgan will no longer be there.
|1 week 3 days ago||I just dont think they can do||
I just dont think they can do this when he is always one hard hit on Gardner away from getting in the game, I think we agree Speight and Bellomy arent options so you have to have Morris ready to play at all times. If Gardner goes down in the middle of game 7, you would feel much more confident with Morris if he played series in say 3 to 5 of the prior games as opposed to never stepping on the field. To do this, you have to play him right away. He will play against App St.
|1 week 3 days ago||Agree on Wormley. Given Henry||
Agree on Wormley. Given Henry was 3rd string in spring game (althought for motivational reasons mainly), at this point you have to list Wormley ahead of Henry.
Also agree on Pipkins as starter...Original list had both Pipkins/Mone as #1. There were alot of nice comment about Mone today but I still dont think they are at the point of starting a true freshman on the defensive line.
|1 week 3 days ago||Very good list you put||
Very good list you put together..only issues I could possible raise are very minor ones.
I think you need to put some guys in two places (similar to how you have Charlton as #2 WDE and #3 SDE). Positions where this needs to be done are:
WR1: You have DaMario Jones #2. I think you need to put Darboh/Chesson as #2 here in addition to you having them as #1 in WR2. If Funchess goes out, the next guy in will not be Jones but will be whoever of those two was not the WR2 guy.
LG: You have Burzynski as #2. I think Dawson should be #2 here along with being #2 at RG. It seems to be clear Dawson is ahead of Burzynski and will be next in regardless if RG or LG gets hurt.
RT: You have Chris Fox at #2. If Braden doesnt perform, there are other guys higher than Fox that will likely get in at RT whether that is Cole or Dawson.
Only other comment I had was I noticed you went with D Morgan over Bolden at WLB. It sure seems like coaches are hinting that Bolden has moved ahead but both will play alot so still a judgment call.

Any guesses which walk-ons they will give scholarships to this year? If you are counting G Glasgow as scholarship player now, there are 2 additional scholarships left this year to get to 85.
I have to assume 1 will go to Joe Kerridge.
As for the other, I would think candidates would be Kenny Allen (probably going to be handling kickoffs), Joey Burzynski (backup OL but probably wont be in 2 deep), Micheal Jocz (may get a few snaps at TE until Butt comes back), Bo Dever (his name has been mentioned in fall pressers), or Ryan Glasgow (sounds like he will get snaps at DT). I think it will be Kenny Allen or Ryan Glasgow for the last one.

It's an experiment...to see if those who bitched about the change to the block M will also complain about changing it back to what it was originally.

I think it is more an observation that as information has become more easier to obtain that the message board as a news source is less relevant. It is now very simple to see almost all the news where before it was impossible to see all and things would break from various places. it seems like now that if you are willing to spend time to come to a message board to get 25% of the info, why not cut out the middleman and see all 100% of the info or quotes coming from media day. I see the value as the message board as a place to discuss things but it seems like these days it has less purpose for beaking news or information since that info is easy to get for everyone.
