|6 weeks 3 days ago||Markley - 4th Reeves||
Class of 85 -- I trayed a few times my Freshman year in Markley . Had to go to Health Services because I flew off of my tray and landed on my thumb (broke it).
Who would think that you couldn't see a roll in the ground that would send you flying off of your tray when it's pitch dark ??

Anybody notice the starting LG for Auburn ??

Buffalo, San Diego State and at Cal ...

There's no crying in football ...
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Late start time :-)||
Thank goodness for the late start time of the Gold Medal game against Sweden. I can sleep in for the start of this game ;-)
|2 years 18 weeks ago||According to Farrell ...||
Laquon's uncle passed away and that was the reason that he didn't make the UM/MSU game this past weekend. He still lists Michigan as favorite for Laquon with OU and OSU laying waiting in the weeds ...
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Denard ?||
Has anyone really watched Denard this year ? Any team with a decent D (which Purdue has) should beat us. Until Denard proves that he can complete passes to our team, especially on the road, I'm not optimistic.

How much $$$ do you spend at a bar for 4 hours, eating and drinking ?? Could easily pay for a lower tier package and not have to fight with Sparty fan at the bar ;-)

He sounds run down & sick. Needs to spend a day in bed ...

I'd advise ordering 2 sizes up. I bought an XL for one of my sons - wife now wears it because it turned into a medium ...

Didn't Shane win the accuracy award on day one ? Revisionist history ...
|2 years 42 weeks ago||2014 version of Shane ??||
Who will be our Shane Morris of Team #135 ??
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Dead give away ...||
Whenever a kid uses the whole hat selection, I assume he's not going Blue. Just not a Michigan kinda thing ...
|2 years 46 weeks ago||If Tim Tebow played LB||
If Tebow were a linebacker instead of QB, this is what he would look like on the field. Even wears #15 ...
|2 years 49 weeks ago||My first peek at his video ...||
Here are some of my thoughts:
1. I found it peculiar that they chose running highlights for the opening 1:30. I did like what I saw and wish that Denard would utilize his feet this way. It was a quick read and if it wasn't there, pull it down and take off (I think Denard made too many questionable throws when he had room to run). Very decisive and he looked pretty fast.
2. Not sure why his receivers get bashed here. I saw many good catches with good, clean routes.
3. I like the way Shane gashed 2-deep zones (Tampa Two) -- not an easy thing to do (ask Tim Tebow).
While highlights only show the good plays, it's exciting to see the potential of Shane. Looking forward to the future !!
|2 years 49 weeks ago||He lit up Cameron Burrows ...||
When Jaron's team played Burrows team, he lit them up for 170 yards and 2 TD's. He's tall with excellent hands -- kinda reminds me of Hemingway ...
|2 years 50 weeks ago||Seriously ?||
This guy is a beast that just won't go down ! What's not to like ?

Mods - please delete this worthless thread.

This commit will turn up the heat on Laquon Treadwell. I doubt they'll take more than two WR's ...

They're trying to backpedal ...
|3 years 3 weeks ago||SLK ?||
Do you remember SLK (Street Light Knights) ? They played at Ricks a bunch back in those years. Always a great night when they played :-)
|3 years 3 weeks ago||21st Bday ...||
On my 21st birthday, a bunch of buddies and myself went to Ricks for the traditional 21 shot fest. I think I was on shot 17 or so when I had to blow chunks in the Men's room (I'm sure I was the one and only to ever blow in there). After I relieved myself, I went back inside and finished the rest of my shots. My buddies were very impressed that I was able to finish what I started. Like Tom Brady, I'm pretty sure I went home alone that night - stuttering drunk 21 year olds just don't pull the ladies, even at Ricks ...
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Spot on||
If he goes early, I'd be amazed. As it is now, I scratch my head every game wondering how/why we don't have someone on the bench that can play better than THJ. The fact that he gets as much PT as he does tells me that Belein sees a better player in practice and is hoping/expecting to see that translate in games eventually.
I actually thought that MSU was allowing THJ and Evan to take their shots whenever/wherever they wanted. Why wouldn't they ? Neither guy could hit anything. That allowed them to have 5-on-3 against Burke, Novak, Douglas or Morgan -- tough to beat that !
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Seriously ??||
Have you really watched THJ handle the ball ?? He is a turnover waiting to happen whenever he puts the ball on the floor. You are correct that the team has a totally different look -- that's because they are backpeddling after he turns it over ...
|3 years 4 weeks ago||USC was his first ...||
I forgot that he already decommitted to USC. Geesh, 4 commits out of 12 in Pac 12 -- gotta be a record ...
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Dennis Norfleet ?||
He was verbally committed to UCinn. We swooped in and stole him in the 11th hour. Hoke dirty ??
No way -- he wanted Michigan as much as Pittman wanted OSU. If anything, our timing was waaay worse than Ohio's -- no chance/time to recover for UCinn. They took Stacey with plenty of time for us to regroup and focus more on Diamond/Kozan/Garnett ...
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Are you sure he's done ??||
Lots of time for JP to jerk around Mora Jr, RR, Kiffin, etc. I can understand being torn between many options but not to be that indecisive ...
|3 years 5 weeks ago||They're off||
Based on everything I've seen written and said, Diamond keeps everything with a neutral slant. I get zero confidence beyond a one in five chance based on his final five.
Garnett, on the other hand, shows nothing but love towards Michigan, the other recruits, the coaches, etc. he's also narrowed it down to two finalists. Based on that alone, we have two and a half times better chance of success with Josh. If you take the intangibles into account, I'm 75/25 in favor of Michigan.
I believe the so called experts are guessing based on old data and geography. I'm confident on Garnett and have no idea with Diamond ...
|3 years 5 weeks ago||I'm with you ...||
I agree with your assessment based on all the pro-Blue communication coming directly from Garnett.
I'd put $$$ on Garnett to Michigan. It's a lock ...
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Rivals is wrong ...||
On the surface, Ohio looks like they're in good shape. Best friend committed, Urb, etc. Just look at the tweet in the OP and what that means. Same with Garnett. Have you seen either of these guys tweeting anything personal about Ohio or Stanford players/recruits/coaches ? Absolutely not (I follow both players on Twitter).
Obviously, there's no science to predicting what an 18 year old kid is thinking -- believe me, I have one of my own !! That being said, their tweets are a subtle way of tipping their hands as to which way they are leaning at that particular moment. With both Reeves and Garnett, I believe they are leaning our way (at least they are at this particular moment).
