Legends jersey are stupid. It should be a one game honor (or maybe senior season). It deprives the players of leaving their own legacy.
|1 week 1 day ago||OSU winning NC||
I don't think that OSU winning the NC would do anything to help the B1G.....especially if they play FSU. Everyone will still think that there were 4-5 SEC teams that were bettter but they just didn't get into the game because they played tougher schedules.
|1 week 1 day ago||Buckeyes||
I had this discussion with a guy at Fraser's on Saturday and he was incredulous that I would ever pick the Buckeyes. To me, the difference is that I respect the Buckeyes. That's Michigan's rival and who they traditionally compete against. I have NO respect for Sparty. They need to regress to the mean as soon as possible. It has to be coming, right?
As someone above pointed out, this is the worst season ever. I don't mind seeing the Buckeyes lose another MNC game. It will REALLY bother me to see Sparty in the Rose Bowl (although it's pretty much unavoidable at this point).
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Ridiculous||
Do you seriously believe what you wrote? RR was 3-9, 5,7 and 7-6. He lost the last three games of his tenure by 20, 30 and 38. Hoke has gone 11-2, 8-5 and 6-3 (pending). His teams have only been blown out by Alabama and MSU. Obviously Hoke's teams are not performing up to the standards that he's set for himself (or that we expect of them) but you simply can't compare three years of RR to three years of Hoke. As Brandon does his annual review, Hoke will get a pass. RR did not (and should not have).

Does the '99 Orange Bowl count as a highlight? How about the 38-0 beat downs of Notre Dame?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||My Cool Story Bro||
Well, it didn't actually happen to me but a friend of mine saw Denard picking up a carry out dinner last week at a local neighborhood bar/restaurant. I live about 25 miles from downtown JAX but it's possible that Denard lives in the neighborhood. I'll have to make more visits to that restaurant.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I Don't Know About That....||
....but it cost me a game in my pool. I took Indiana +10.5 and it was in the bag until Fitz took it to the house. I got over it pretty quickly.
I guess you're right. If he takes a knee, the game is essentially over (but I think that IU had one TO left). By giving them the ball, they have a chance at a TD, 2 point conversion, onside kick recovery, TD and 2 point conversion to tie the game. Stranger things have happened (I know because I was in Happy Valley two weeks ago).
|12 weeks 18 hours ago||Michigan 37-10||

|13 weeks 3 days ago||I Like Your List||
I like your list. They all have "name recognition", quality academics and somewhat iconic campuses. Georgia doesn't quite fit with the other public schools but still a good choice.
I'd prefer the East Coast schools. They're all reasonably drivable from metro Detroit and the NE corridor.
That being said, I'm shocked that Michigan hasn't had more activity with Cal and Stanford over the years.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Through 2015?||
Does that mean you don't think that Dawson will crack the starting lineup until 2016? I was really counting on him to be a three year starter.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||MSU||
I think that MSU is the big wildcard in the B1G this year. They don't play any of the main contenders in the Leaders (OSU, PSU or Wisky). Even if they lose 2/3 to Northwestern, Nebraska and Michigan.....it could put them in good position in the Legends. If they win 2/3, they have a good shot at going to the B1G Championship game (depending on who they lose to).
I think that Michigan will have the best record within the Legends.....but they REALLY have to win the OSU game.
|16 weeks 14 hours ago||Raleighwood||
48 years old. Graduated from Brighton High and Western Michigan. Michigan fan since I was 8 (vividly remember watching the 1973 OSU game at my grandparents house....I was hooked). Lived in Raleigh, NC for 17 years. Now in Jacksonville, FL. Still go back to a game almost every year. My (well, the team's) record in games personally attended is pretty good. MSU (1-0), OSU (1-0), PSU, (3-0), ND (3-0). On the flip side, I'm not so good against Miami (0-1) or Mississippi freakin' State (0-1). Right handed.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Chris Bryant||
Is that the case with Chris Bryant? He redshirted his first year and then was injured for his entire second year. That means he should be eligible for a medical redshirt but I haven't seen any mention of that.
If he gets that, it's very possible that Michigan's OL will be comprised completely Freshman and Sophomores next year. Braden (RS), Bryant (Medical RS) Kugler (RF) Kalis (RS) Magnuson (RS)......or something along those lines. I'm sure that others will be in the mix.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||I think that MSU's best||
I think that MSU's best offense was a fake punt. It didn't really matter who the CB'S were.
|18 weeks 11 hours ago||Top Recruiting Profile||
"Kyle Kalis appears to have locked down his starting spot and comes in with the highest ever recruiting profile for a Michigan offensive lineman." I'm not so sure that Kalis had a higher profile than Steve Hutchison. He was listed by SuperPrep as a Top 3 OL nationally in 1995. That's higher than Scout (6) or Rivals (4) listed Kalis. But I get the general idea.....Kalis is good. http://www.fhsaa.org/news/2007/1204 The link shows the Top 50 football players in the first 100 years of HS Football in Florida. It's interesting (at least I think so) that three of them played college ball at Michigan. Anthony Carter, Stefan Humphries and Steve Hutchison.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Redshirts||
It's possible (even likely) that one or two of the 2013 RB's will redshirt this year. That essentially puts them into the 2014 class in terms of remaining eligibility.
I agree that it wouldn't be a bad thing if Michigan had to skip a class at RB, especially with the pipeline of talent that is currently coming into the program. You don't ever want to get caught short but that doesn't appear to be an issue right now.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||I live in Jax too||
We were offered a deal through our company to buy individual game tickets for $15 below the season ticket price. The company is subsidizing to support the Jags......and it looks like they need a lot of help.
|20 weeks 18 hours ago||Miller vs Gardner||
I'm not so sure that Miller is going to run away with the award this year. He accounted for 3310 yards last year (running and passing). If Gardner's numbers were extrapolated out for a 12 game season, he would have accounted for 3167 yards.
The biggest difference is in TD's. Miller had 15 passing and 13 running (28 total). Gardner had 11 passing and 7 rushing......in only five games! That calculates out to 25 and 16 (rounding down) over a 12 game schedule!
I realize that this isn't a very scientific examination but it shows that Gardner certainly has skills on the same level as Miller. Probably more if you consider that a QB should be able to, you know, throw the ball.
Personally, I don't want to see Gardner rush for 16 TD's. It would be nice if the RB's could find the endzone in the ground game. However, I'm very optimistic for the "complete game" that Gardner will bring to the field this year.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Top 3 Offensive Lineman By SuperPrep||
Hutchinson was named to the Top 33 Players in the first 100 years of Florida High School football as an offensive lineman. He was also listed as a Top 3 HS offensive lineman nationally by SuperPrep for his senior year.
I would think that makes him an OL prospect.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||To Be Fair.....||
Kalis is probably the best guard prospect at Michigan such Hutchinson. From most reports, Braden appears to have a ton of upside. It's not ideal to have too much youth on the O-Line but remember that Justin Boren was 2nd team all B1G as a sophomore (same age as these guys). The OP was just trying the shine a little optimism.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||I Don't Know.....||
PSU is getting 2 1/2 in this game (early line). I've already doubled that and given a couple of PSU friends 5 points. Michigan has a 4th year QB going against a freshman. Michigan has reasonable depth everywhere except O-Line. PSU can't spell "depth". Michigan has more athletes and playmakers at this point. This might be naive, but I'm chalking this one up as a "probable win" for the good guys.

Math's not so hard. Michigan self imposed two years but was hit with three by the NCAA. If Michigan got "credit for time served", it's possible that the probation period would end before this November.....but I haven't seen that posted anywhere.
|24 weeks 1 day ago||Michigan Probation||
Does anybody know when Michigan's probationary period ends? I think that the ruling came down in November 2010 so I'm assuming that it'll be done in November 2013. Of course, Michigan "self imposed" two years so maybe the clock started ticking a little earlier.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Company Website||
I've only been in town for five months so I'm not very well connected. However, I'll take a look at our company website to see if any engineering jobs are posted. If so, we may be able to connect offline to review them.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Networking||
I think that networking is the key to finding a job. It sounds like you haven't been out of school that long so you might not have an extensive network but definitely try to keep in touch with former co-workers because they quite possibly have remained in the same line of business. Linked In is a great resource.
It's difficult to compete with all of the people out there on Monster and sites like that. It's always much better if you know someone inside the hiring company.....even if it's a friend of a friend. I used that route last year and got a couple of interviews with good companies. In the end, I stayed with my own company and took a transfer.
I moved from North Carolina to nothern Florida (JAX) earlier this year and this area definitely doesn't seem to have as strong of a job market....but it's not too bad. My company was recently named the "Florida Manufacturing Company Of The Year". I think that the Governor has been on-site twice this year already and we have manufacturing expansion going on.
Good luck in your search!
|25 weeks 6 days ago||My Cool Stories.....Michgan related||
I played softball against Vada Murray a few times in the early 90's.. I remember him hitting routine shots to me in the outfield (Leftcenter or Rightcenter) and he'd be standing on second base before I could get the ball back into the infield. The guy was fast......and clearly (and rightfully) didn't respect my arm. It happened more than once.
The other story was in the spring of '94. I was hanging out at the bar in Fraser's and sitting right next to me was Bo himself. I think that hit was the 25th reunion of the 1969 team (his first). Most of the team was in a tent outside the door but Bo came inside and hung out for awhile. I didn't speak to him but he was clearly in a pretty good mood. He liked having all of his boys back in town.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Back To Back Wins||
I think that it will take back-to-back wins against Sparty to right that ship. If MSU wins this year, then that will be five out of six and Michigan will have not really accomplished anything in that respect. Things will not be back to "normal". It's a little different with OSU. I can handle losing to them occasionally and accept that there will be ebbs and flows in the rivalry (M was something like 10-2-1 against OSU in the Cooper years). I really can't handle losing to MSU.

I was thinking that this kid must be REALLY good because true centers almost never get five stars ratings. Oh well, I guess that basketball is OK, too.
