Stretch four infers the man can stretch the defense with his jump shot. So.... stretch four he is not.
|5 days 23 hours ago||IF true, Harbaugh reaching||
IF true, Harbaugh reaching out and saying that to a friend/teammate is certainly a bad sign. All the rest seems to be nonsense. Michigan is competing with his heart, not a particular NFL situation, and the university will toss the keys to everything about the program to him.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I agree. Once all the scouts||
I agree. Once all the scouts take a deep dive into his film this year, all his 1st round projections will drop. He seems to be quite a boom or bust type prospect to me. I expect he either puts it together and is an impact player within two or three years or is out of the league within five.

Give me THESE. Touch up the collar and piping to be a little more modern and these are the best. Black shoes and socks would also be cool.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Lame. Give me||
Lame. Give me this:
4:00 ET - TCU @ Florida State
8:00 ET - Baylor @ Ohio State

Why? We ran zone blocking this season. If your argument is on QB then it's relevant to say it's looking bleak in any system. Hoke was brutal as a coach, but the cupboard is not bare like it was upon Carr's exit.

Given the difficulty of conference and the challenges to become nationally elite, Mullen absolutely blows Schiano out of the water. Also Mullen doesn't have an absolute disaster stop in the NFL .

I know there have been reports, but I refuse to give in to such dark thoughts.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I don't care for Cowherd (SVP||
I don't care for Cowherd (SVP & Russillo blow the Herd outta the water), but you gotta respect his hustle. Cowherd got a nation of Wolverines to mobilize on message boards, listen to his show, and follow him on Twitter. Now let's get back to listening actual Michigan insiders like Sam Webb and ignoring non-story leaks from the national media.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||He obviously has the raw||
He obviously has the raw talent to make in the league, but his hands and "motor" need work. As cliche as words like motor are, Funchess has looked disengaged for weeks. We know he's been nicked up for most of the season, but I was very disappointed by how little it all mattered to him. Also, the wins are just a statistic or whatever quote was a weird look for him. I love him, hope he stays, but stay or go I'm just not sure he has that fire in him you need to be an impact player in the NFL.

I could be wrong, but this smells like a smokescreen. If it's not Harbaugh or Miles, I would expect a McElwain/Riley type hire from a minor program.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||If "Michigan football" HAS to||
If "Michigan football" HAS to be under-center power running we'll never be great again. Building a program strategy like it's 15+ years ago is insane. Not to mention "Pro-style" is a myth, the elite offenses are mostly passing spreads in the NFL.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Those two programs also have||
Those two programs also have huge geographical advantages over a Nebraska. Michigan falls somewhere in the middle and should be capable of an occasional playoff berth under the right staff.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Can Les Miles win without 10||
Can Les Miles win without 10 elite athletes from Louisiana every year? He's had top 5 talent every season at LSU. Our recruiting rankings may look shiny, but the speed and NFL talent on his defenses has been unparalleled for a decade.

Cool way for a walk on to graduate, be a part of the team, and maybe play at a small school as a 5th year senior
|4 weeks 6 days ago||He's a nice kid and a decent||
He's a nice kid and a decent college center. He will not make it to the next level. He could play in lesser European leagues, sure, but he also strikes me as a guy that doesn't want to play basketball forever and has ambitions outside of sports. With that said, we could have used him this year, and he'll be a solid rotation player for the Gators.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Not really, but he is an NBA||
Not really, but he is an NBA wing. The thought of GR3 playing some 2 is much more imaginable than playing the 4 with responsibility of guarding the Blake Griffin's of the world and rebounding consistently. Obviously he's a 3 first and foremost, but these days the perimeter is much more properly delineated as point guards, combo guards, wings, and stretch forwards than the traditional positions anyway.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||You're wrong on this. You||
You're wrong on this. You don't just pick a school just for football. But picking out of so many schools on the same tier makes the atmosphere a huge tiebreaker. Ann Arbor and big time football are a huge factor there for people like that. Academic rankings are full of it anyway.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Disagree. People are||
Disagree. People are disenfranchised by the whole thing. Michigan football was at least fun with Denard and co. There was hope for the future in all those years until last year also.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||This. It's impossible to read||
This. It's impossible to read too much in either way to his comments. Also talk radio is gonna talk radio.

THJ has got to work on his defense if he's ever going to be a starter in the NBA. Nice rookie season offensively though.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I would say given how inept||
I would say given how inept Michigan football has been for the last seven years, everyone is one edge when big decisions are on the horizon. Also the tiny, tiny possibility that Hoke and Brandon are both not gone terrifies everybody. We need a reboot. We need a coach that adapts to his players' strengths, develops talent (highly touted or not), and wears a fucking headset. We need a modern football program, not one stuck in the 90s. We will all be angry, sad, and everything in between until we have a coach the fan base can get behind. If we hire another Hoke... Things will get very ugly at Michigan Stadium on fall Saturdays.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Alright, if we want to talk||
Alright, if we want to talk out about mischaracterizations... What Bacon said was more along the lines of "based on what I'm hearing, I expect Brandon will be fired." He also gave his best estimate at who would coach Michigan next year and guessed a Harbaugh. He never intimated certainty. The man just said what he'd been hearing and spoke from his gut about the implications of that information.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Two bones to pick. First, 4-3||
Two bones to pick. First, 4-3 if the wins were over two of the worst teams in FBS, Rutgers, and a Penn State team with a '13 Michigan-like OL is not good. It's definitely not good when the losses are embarrassing laughers (two of them at home) with a combined score of 87-24 in which we mustered just 256 yards per game with 10 turnovers and just one takeaway.
Second, what are these "whispers" that State and Ohio are on upset alert? Both teams have to show up and play, so there's always the proverbial chance, but nobody is fooling themselves into thinking either matchup looks good for Michigan, particularly with both on the road.

This will probably be really boring. They probably run through normal business before putting anything like this to discussion. And yet here I am waiting for it to start...
|10 weeks 1 hour ago||Despite Tevin Coleman being a||
Despite Tevin Coleman being a terrifying monster-beast, it may be time to believe that the Indiana game is a win. Their defense is truly horrendous, and the QB situation is even more disastrous after Sudfeld's injury as the quality depth transferred (Roberson and Coffman) and the next guy up is now injured (Covington).
The most likely outcome then is a split with Maryland/Northwestern and two losses to the rivals. But this is still the BIG TENNN so who knows. I desparately hope we can reach a bowl to give the players (mainly the seniors) a tiny consolation for the lost season and a little more momentum for next year.
