They nixed that last year with the submarine. IIRC, they did a show or two towards the end of camp, but definitely not daily.

IIRC, Michigan asked Falcon to sit out his senior year and rehab his knee, but he chose to play and reinjured it.

There's so many state and local laws it's hard to say. Michigan for example requires both handgun registration for ownership and a CPL to keep a loaded gun in your vehicle. Other places don't have registries and have constitutional carry where there's no CPL licenses at all. Others are somewhere in between on the spectrum.

If it's like Michigan, having a loaded or improperly stowed handgun in a vehicle counts as concealed carry, which you need a license for.
|1 week 9 hours ago||I mean is pretty obvious||
I mean is pretty obvious you're right in this particular case, but South Bend isn't a nice area. Kettering in Flint actually subsidized students to get CPLs. It's kind of a broad blanket statement to say there's no need for guns in college.

Aren't they in camp right now?
|1 week 1 day ago||Huh? Exit does come before||
Huh? Exit does come before entrance right now. If they changed it to a true cloverleaf, then the exit would come after entrance of the opposite direction and would force the zipper merge you're complaining about.
Also, a cloverleaf would not only be overkill for that interchange (they're reserved for major artery to major artery exchanges), but there's a river and houses that would make it impossible in that location.
Edit, ok, I think I know what you mean now. You're talking about the close proximity of the main street exit to the barton on ramp. The post I responded to and my post were referring to the barton on/off ramp on the other side where there's a stop sign at the end of the on ramp. There's even less they can do about the main street exit short of closing the barton on ramp.

That's my concern as well. As a teenager playing against people half your size and at a HS workload, that's probably fine. But ramp up wear and tear with competition level and workload, and it's bond to take a toll sooner or later. I always worry about guys like that later in their lives too.
|1 week 1 day ago||They have him doing both OL||
They have him doing both OL and DL according to the coaches and players. The video he posted had him playing at the nose and making a solo tackle after annihilating Dawson.
Here's the thread.

I believe it. In the video he posted of his first tackle, you can see a 300lb Dawson get rocked back in the collision with Onwenu and then the poor RB absolutely get flung backwards like a rag doll.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not sure what they could do||
Not sure what they could do about that though give where the on-ramp is, the hill you have to get up, plus the houses and property in the vicinity. I guess they could have extended the merge, but you'd still have to slow to a crawl at that bend before hand though.

She looks exactly how you would think she would look without makeup, and still hot as hell.
|1 week 2 days ago||I would pay good money to||
I would pay good money to watch fat man 7 on 7. They should invite Taco and Mone given the clip that came out a couple months ago going 1 on 1 on a route.
|1 week 2 days ago||Even in their case they were||
Even in their case they were only ever playing 3 backups at any time. The odds of needing more than that are (knock on wood) extremely low.
I guess my point is each individual position doesn't need a separate, dedicated backup. The 5 positions are largely interchangeable and between the positional flexibility of the starters and the backups, you can make a lot of different combos work.

That juke on the last defender is just dirty. RIP his ankles.
|1 week 2 days ago||You don't really need a 2||
You don't really need a 2 deep for OL like that since they don't rotate. It's starting 5 and then next best off the bench, with some shuffling if necessary. I feel pretty good about depth now that you're starting to hear noise about 2-3 viable options past the presumed starters.

Snyder asked the first two times, the last time, coming from the opposite side of the room, was some ESPN guy whose name I didn't recognize. According to the Michigan Insider podcast anyway.

One of the BTN guys tweeted a receiver drill that had the guys running out routes with a sharp cut. Grant Perry ran the first rep in the clip and then Chesson ran the second. To my untrained eye, he looked 100% except for the tape/brace on the right knee.

|1 week 3 days ago||To play Devil's advocate,||
To play Devil's advocate, some of the shadier things that happened at other schools were kept out of the public record as well. Those programs were able to sweep a lot of it under the rug by handling things internally. I'm not saying at all that that's what's going on here obviously, but having the press ask questions and press the issue isn't a bad thing (as long as it's not a self-important douche nozzle that's trying to destroy the program for personal gain)
|1 week 3 days ago||I can see how you would be||
I can see how you would be skeptical about burger's on the ground claim, but Lochte put himself out there for the world to see for a season of reality TV. If you take that plus his interviews, outrageous partying reputation, etc, I think it's pretty valid to question if his side of the story can be trusted. For all his physical gifts, he seems to be a bit short in the mental dept.
|1 week 3 days ago||Here's Hoke's OL||
Here's Hoke's OL recruiting:
Chris Bryant - 3* - Career ending injury
Jack Miller (RR) - 3* - Starter
Kyle Kalis - 4* - Starter
Erik Magnuson - 4* - Starter
Ben Braden - 3* - Starter
Blake Bars - 3* - Never panned out
Patrick Kugler - 4* - Key backup (?)
Kyle Bosch - 4* - Off field issues
David Dawson - 4* - Key backup
Chris Fox - 4* - Career ending injury
Logan Tuley-Tillman - 4* - Off field issues
Dan Samuelson - 3* - Never panned out
Mason Cole - 4* - Starter
Juwann Bushell-Beaty - 3* - ???
Grant Newsome - 4* - Looking like Starter
Jon Runyan Jr - 3* - ???
Aside from the starter level guys needing an extra year or two and a new OL coach to get to anywhere near their potential, there's not a lot ot fault there. Fox got hurt after he committed and Hoke, to his credit, stood by the offer. '14 was a tiny class because of the huge '12 and '13 classes, so 2 OL is actually about right given other needs. The only guys that missed completely were 3* guys that, well, that just happens with the lower rated guys.
In fact, I'm not even convinced that we have that much of a depth issue at all here. We can suffer 2, maybe 3 injuries on the line and probably be ok. Kugler and Dawson have both looked decent to good in scrimmage, even if they couldn't push past the starters yet. If Bredeson is as good as advertised, then you have another option before things start getting hairy. That's a situation pretty much every college team finds itself in.
|1 week 3 days ago||I don't think he was ever||
I don't think he was ever enraged. It was more, "Ok, now I'm going to do what I said I was going to do if you called me that one more time." If Rome fought back even a little, I could see it getting ugly, but at that point Everett was totally dominating him and just basically slapping him like the little bitch Rome is.
|1 week 3 days ago||Again, the development point||
Again, the development point I can definitely see, but what did he do from a roster management perspective that caused the depth issues?
|1 week 3 days ago||Eh, if by elite you mean guys||
Eh, if by elite you mean guys like Fournette or Gurley, then yeah, Michigan is missing that. But Smith is just fine, especially the healthy, Citrus Bowl version. In this system, his break a tackle and fall forward style is pretty ideal.
