Damn, Sean McKeon is impressive. EECS major and a damn fine artist.

Youtube has about 25 minutes of a loop of the logo animation to start before the actual event starts. Just fast forward until you see the drumline come out.

All he's got to say is someone else must have used his life story to write the book. Yeah, people probably won't believe him, but it's still better than putting his name on the book.
|1 day 2 hours ago||I think he probably meant his||
I think he probably meant his agility not straight line speed, which I agree with. That said, it sounds like he might be carrying some bad weight. Trimmed down and with some conditioning work to work on his speed, I could see him knock of a few tenths of that 5 sec time.

Magnus at TTB seems to think he's carrying quite a bit of bad weight and that his optimal weight is around 250 once he gets in a college S&C program.
EDIT: beaten to the punch by the man himself.

Glasgow isn't a great example, but he has improved immensely. I don't remember anyone thinking he was NFL material, let alone a 3rd rounder. He, and Cole, were considered solid mostly because everyone else was so bad. Braden went from a complete and utter liability to a plus player this year. Kalis went from getting blown up in game one to moving NFL bound guys by the Florida game. There was still a little doubt in my mind at the beginning of this season whether the problems were on Funk or on youth/talent. But I don't see how anyone can draw any conclusion other than coaching after what this line was able to do by the end of this season.

I was worried that was the case. He and Darboh both quietly never returned after plays where they were slow to get up. Get well soon, can't wait to see him torch DBs, bowl over defenders, and return kickoffs for TD's this fall
|1 day 4 hours ago||I think his inability to get||
I think his inability to get even acceptable play out of the line doomed Borges and Hoke, far more than the other way around. It was far more that the playcalling was extremely limited and there were large parts of the playbook they couldn't call because the OL couldn't hold up long enough to have a prayer of executing the play successfully. Or they needed to bring 8-9 guys to the LOS just to keep the QB from getting killed, leaving just a couple routes for the defense to blanket.
Hoke was essentially hands off, so it's not like he really affected what Funk was doing one way or the other. You can't really say it was Borges either since the OL was still awful even when Nuss came to town and ran the style Funk was used to.
Not to mention the issues on OL were of the very basic technique variety that transcend offensive scheme. People have hitched a lot of weight to Brian saying he was impressed, or Kugler's dad letting his son play for him, but that's circumstantial at best. He had 4 years of on the field track record to evaluate his coaching directly and 3 of 4 can only be described as a failure. Also, there have been numerous comments from HS level coaching types re: practice videos where they were appauled by the sloppiness in technique that he didn't bother correcting.

Brady and his “body coach” developed the TB12 method to develop and sustain peak performance.
If anyone needed a body coach it was Brady.

Good point. I was thinking Gary. Imagine having a 270 lb, 4.7 forty guy getting a 5 yard running start.

Don't the recruiting rankings only take the top X players in a given class. So, small classes below the threshold hurt you, but just having a big class doesn't help you.
Also, great avatar and handle. That show was an underrated gem.

Given Doc Brown's MO, I'm not sure it matters. Everyone will play everywhere. Hell, it wouldn't surprise me if some DL guys end up getting a lot of snaps as a jumbo LB.

I'd love to see this for all the guests. It seems like all of them have a cool story. It's like 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon.

One is that everybody’s going to get a spring break. There’s no youngster that can’t afford to fly somewhere won’t be able to enjoy his spring break. What better way to be doing that than to be playing football.
No wonder guys love playing for him. I wouldn't have even thought of that angle, but it goes to show he really cares about them as people and wants to give them the best possible experience during their time at Michigan, on and off the field.

That's actually pretty clever.

Playing ND again is good, but I don't want to do it every year. Every other year would be good, or two on two off. With 9 game conference schedules, I don't want them to be our one marquee OOC game every single year.

I'm really hoping the submarine doesn't go underwater until fall camp. I'm totally fine with operational security before the start of the season, but spring ball is the time of year when I really start jonesing for some football content, any content, even if it's pore-O-vision practice clips.

They really should just have the commits come out for their part, get recognized, and then go backstage or back in the audience with their family. That was my only complaint. You're right, Peters, in particular, looked extremely bored. Can't blame the kid, but it's not a great look for Michigan.
The parade of celebrities and especially NFL people was awesome. I love that some of them have no obvious connection to Michigan at all. The whole thing just seemed fun in a totally silly way.

Looks like you joined just after the worst time on the board (Oct 2014, circa Concussiongate and Brandon's last stand). This is nothing compared to that, people were at each other's throats over the stupidest stuff around then.

Wow, that's a really cool story. I had no idea their relationship went back that far. I wonder how many degrees of separation max there are between JH and any given player or coach in college or pro football. Seems like the guy knows everyone in one way or another.

What a joke. There are zero extenuating circumstances to suggest he was doing anything but intentionally trying to cold cock Motte.

And I loved to climb trees, so when I was finished, I would climb to the top of the tallest tree in our backyard and lay face down on the highest branch, just looking down, admiring my work.
This explains a thing or two.

Not exactly back to back, Miller was there for a year+ and was definitely part of those problems.

Looks like he's still commiting pre-snap penalties though. :(
Still he's more than holding his own against some good competition.
