He still got worked by the conference with back to back games in East Lansing.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Coachspeak||
Shocked "get after the quarterback" and "blitz" were not mentioned. Regardless, beef on the line makes me happy and hopefully lets Durkin and Mattison get a little creative to confuse blocking schemes.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm going as well||
Any good bars close to their stadium that can be recommended? I turned down the opportunity to spend a Wednesday night in SLC for fear of boredom so I'm coming in hot on an early morning flight from California on Thursday morning. Morman jokes are ok as long as useful information is sprinkled in as well.
|1 week 3 days ago||Totally agree||
Yeah...I hope it is announced in advance so recruits can line that trip up.
|1 week 3 days ago||Camping with an injury||
Richardson deserves all the credit in the world for choosing to camp knowing that he was hurt. Most guys would have backed off knowing they didn't have a chance to impress at 100%. I am always going to be a fan of his. That was a gutsy decision!

That was my first thought too...and I'd be ok with that!
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Michigan 38 - Notre Dame 0||
EVERYTHING WORKED! Despite starting 0-2 in 2007. This was the biggest pounding I can ever remember giving a rival. (Words carefully chosen there).

Fulmer Cup is going to need a new name soon.

I actually plan on attending the real first game: September 3rd, Salt Lake City!!!

I'm guessing it didn't play as well to the females as orignially envisioned. Hell of an idea though and I can't say the 20 year old verson of me isn't impressed with the execution of procuring one.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||^Sure||
Everyone on this board wants to believe that is true (myself included), but then again that's what everyone says when a medical hardship is signed. Unbiased logic makes me skeptical about true motivations.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||^Not sure I get your point||
Were you given a scholarship in 2012 to play football at the University of Michigan? Your second sentence should read "if Pipkins is unable to play UP TO THE CURRENT STAFF'S STANDARDS, then he shouldn't." The article clearly says that Pipkins believes he is able to play up to his own standards. Sorry to be blunt but that is the main point of contention.

I second this. Let's not jump to assume this is deeper than it is. I don't like us trying to defend this just as much as I don't like what Urban and the SEC do to kids two years into the program. Pipkins wants to play...that should be where we stop reading. Sorry to Pipkins and I hope this does not become a trend.

They did as much research on this pet as TP did on his "research paper about research"
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Kicking for Harbaugh||
I can't imagine what Harbaugh will put kickers through in terms of constant competition/mock stress and mental exercises (since a lot of kicking is mental). Harbaugh seems to like testing the mental side of football players.
|12 weeks 17 hours ago||This is high||
I work in asset management and have the opportunity to buy Toys R Us debt if I thought it was the right investment for a particular mandate. I can say without a doubt that this is very generous for the position and the financial health of Toys R Us. Bain is paying Brandon based on his previous experience with Valassis Communications and Domino's and those are both very different tasks than turning a struggling retailer. I'm happy Dave Brandon is still in a position to be a major donor to the University if he hits his long term incentive payments but I do not expect that to happen. Bottom line $8mm per year to babysit a decaying business is generous.
I'm not happy about his tenure as AD, like all of you, but remember that in his post-AD career the University and athletic department stand to benefit if he makes a lot of money and remains a donor.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||The real losers in all of this||
My kids are going to hate me now that I will put a self imposed ban at Toys R Us. Poor children...collateral damage of my strong willingness to hold a grudge.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Jalen and Chris||
People disagree all the time. I think they are still pretty civil about it, even though they clearly aren't budging regarding their points of view. There are some extremely polarizing events that affected both of them over the years (cough, cough...Ed Martin). And I could see Weber not wanted to touch that issue in the documentary based on how Jalen was going to film his point of view on it.

Is that JayBaugh hanging out at the 3pt line in the background? He really is all over social media!

Please retrain yourself from tweeting this kid over the next few days...you know who you are!
|29 weeks 18 hours ago||Weber||
I think Weber probably acted rationally. It's not unreasonable to think the staff said something like, "we've got a spot for you at RB and we really want you". When another RB commits, he pauses and says, "was I really the only RB they wanted like they said". I thought the diary post on Higdon was excellent and helps out the Weber timeline of his "surprise" by Higdon's commitment. It's not the staff's job to tell Weber that another RB is interested in them, but it seems like if they communicated it Weber before the announcement, he may have respected that...but then again, who knows...it could have turned him off. Only Weber knows and now he is enrolling at OSU. Recruits seem to make very questionable decisions year after year but at least I think I can follow Mike's logic and why it appears to have been a tough decision for him.

He also has safety experience and seems like an awesome dude. This would be #amazing
|29 weeks 3 days ago||If Vince Young had a rewind button...||
He'd probably do the same thing now that he is older. Most athletes don't realize that change is necessary until after the fact. Now I'm pulling for Manziel to come out the other side.

Bursley had a cop that was so hot our floor got her to hold two handles of liquor in uniform and we made t-shirts out of it. Top floor of Douglas. She was not a very good security officer.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Gone to "south" bend?||
South Bend or Bend, Oregon? There are ski resorts in Bend, Oregon so that's probably not the best idea.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||Ivy League Football Pitch||
That's exactly what every Ivy League football recruit hears. Solid decision making to take offense to the statement.
