We get it - he says "well" alot. Who cares? Move on.

Fair enough..I read it the first time as you insulting Dave to complain about it but now I see it was just your interpretation of what the writer was essentially saying.

|2 days 20 hours ago||I agree that there isnt much||
I agree that there isnt much upside..but look at the alternative when ESPN and App St approached UM about another game. He could have said No and then there would have been 100 articles about how Michigan was too chicken to play App St a second time. That alternative. doesnt sound so great also. In conclusion, the game is happening and stop your complaining and let's worry about the 2014 game not the 2007 one.
|2 days 22 hours ago||i found this to be very||
i found this to be very surprising...especially seeing Khalid Hill at the second spot with Heitzman nowhere to be found. Coaches were very critical of how Hill performed in the spring. In fact, I would say Ferrigno's interview with Sam Webb about Hill during the summer was the most critical Ive seen any of these coaches be publicly towards a player. Maybe it was a motivational thing but i took it as Hill was unlikely to see meaningful snaps this year so Heitzman would be a key player at TE.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Why is this nonsense||
Why is this nonsense thread-worthy?
I thought there was a ban on OT threads now. This thread cant possibly be on-topic or someone has to reevaluate what is considered OT.
|4 days 3 hours ago||I missed that the first time.||
I missed that the first time. That makes up for the RB error by Ace. Definitely rooting for Hollowell.
|5 days 23 hours ago||The NCAA released its||
The NCAA released its decision..but the rest of the board didnt want to clutter up the msg board with this news. As you can see there was more important topics to post like posting fantasy football teams, a skydiving video, the 20th thread about it being last day for OT posts, a thread about who your favorite poster is, and probably a drinking thread. If the board quiets down from these important topics, someone will probably post a link to the Ty Isaac decision.
|6 days 3 hours ago||It is not as illogical as you||
It is not as illogical as you suggest. It exists because less than 2 weeks ago he said Drake Johnson was ahead of Derrick Green at RB, he suggested Morris is in heated battle at QB, he states Dawson is on first string line at one point, 10 days ago says Fox is getting reps with 1s.
Hoke has clearly tried to motivate people by suggesting spots are at risk and rewarded those having a good practice or two by giving them excessive praise in press conferences. The logical result is not paying too much attention to who he says would start as of today.
|6 days 5 hours ago||We dont fully know when all||
We dont fully know when all the paperwork even got to the NCAA. A couple of weeks after he announced he was transferring, Michigan still said it was going through he filing process as there was alot of medical data and reports that needed to be filed in order to document his mother's condition.

you scared the hell out of me with your avatar. im sitting on a hotel bed on an ipad and for a second i thought there must be bed bugs here. i just spent 5 seconds trying to brush that bug off the screen.

Duffy's is on Diversey not Division.
|1 week 36 min ago||It was well reported after||
It was well reported after the game that both Morgan and Ross didnt play much of the Iowa game because of injury. Early in the OSU week it was feared that neither would play (Morgan did, Ross didnt).
|1 week 1 day ago||Yep..agree with this. After||
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.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yep..no reason to let Nd know||
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.
|1 week 2 days ago||Well, Kenny Allen is also the||
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.
|1 week 2 days ago||Agree with the Ross||
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.
|1 week 3 days ago||It would be nice to be able||
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.
|1 week 3 days ago||Agree..I think his all-caps||
Agree..I think his all-caps words of wisdom tricked us into thinking he was going to be a louder and outspoken guy.
|1 week 3 days ago||Hollowell is definitely the||
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.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||You are getting greedy now.||
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.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||First thing I noticed that it||
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.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Mitch Cumstein...You should||
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.

@umichfootball: Lightning in the area but practice rolls on inside the nation's best indoor facility #GoBlue http://t.co/A3WEe06zrO

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.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Well, he did play in 11 games||
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.
|2 weeks 4 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.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks. I made all the needed||
Thanks. I made all the needed corrections earlier this week when i found out.
