I wonder how many redundent "best of luck to him" or some variance of that posts we can fit into one thread.

hate to see any kind of suspension but atleast i hope this means patrick kugler will be given a chance to start. if he's our center of the future id rather the future start sooner then later.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||I don't understand that last||
I don't understand that last bit about Penn State. It's not that potential game time weather being bad is some new development the weather in late fall has ALWAYS been like that in upper-midwest states. Sounds like a denial excuse to me.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||I think his flameout will be||
I think his flameout will be Ryan Leaf or Jamarcus Russell-esque. He hasn't shown in any way that he has the work ethic or the leadership abilities to be a QB in the NFL. It's a lot easier to extend plays and turn and twist from pressure in college then it is in the NFL and he doesn't have the size to be a guy who can extend time while in the pocket he HAS to roll out. he'll also need to teach himself to NOT rollout then just toss it up like he does so often in college. He does benefit this year from a not so strong QB class and a lot of teams going int othe draft with QB questions or openings. He'll likely go higher then his career output would justify.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Exactly. And MSU is the||
Exactly. And MSU is the program that last year had Rose Bowl plastered all over their facilities and practice area's and then fell flat on their face. Dantonio has been centered on going to the Rose Bowl ever since he got there. Those "quotes" are just hyperbole. It's getting alittle ridiculous how much people on here are taking inconsequential things and squeezing them in any way they can to bash the program and/or our coach. It's getting really pathetic.

No, he wouldnt be. His offense was a gigantic failure against any team that was above average and not named Notre Dame.

And he ended that 2010 campaign with the most embarassing bowl experience in the history of Michigan bowls....
Hoke's team may be struggling this year people, but we wouldnt be any better if Rich Rod was still here. Its not like Arizona is rocking the world this year thats why the Oregon win is such a huge upset.

Isn't it a little early for posting our ohio game predictions....

You say polls can't be trusted in that country, then go on to base your argument on those same polls :/
And we actually don't know how much of their population is in prison or not because they don't make public the records on the thousands of political prisoners.

that "Im having a stroke..." PSA needs to be changed and turn it into a hotline for stressed UofM fans this season...

|1 year 36 weeks ago||Down voted for saying what||
Down voted for saying what exactly? I guess I offended some Denzel Ward fan here. Just pointing out the facts never talked down on the kid. he was supposed to be a top shelf recruit for 2014 that's why so many schools started showing interest in him very early, and obviously he got swayed by that interest and the snake oil that goes with it. That was basically the entire reason he moved to Florida was to get more exposure, raise his profile and be closer to Gainesville. Well it kind of blew up in his face since he never took that next step, and almost all the top schools who were starting to offer him eventually cooled off on him big time.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||He's never turned into the||
He's never turned into the monster high level recruit many thought he would be. Seems schools like Florida and Oklahoma really cooled on him. Scout has him as the what 50th OT in this class? oh well.You could go to schools a lot worse then Purdue. Good luck to him.

When I think of Jordan Diamond and Laquan Treadwell I think of very wishy washy diva types. I don't think of that when considering Malik or Parker Westphal.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||you should probably have the||
you should probably have the cat guide in your avatar help you find a sense of humor, douchebag. I would really want a university to deny re-enrollment to a former player based off of one play gone bad? Really? Get a grip dude.

Crable should have been denied re-enrollment based on that late hit near the end of the 06 ohio game.... just reading his name makes me think of it and cry like a little girl....

Let the damn kid announce at 4pm and just shutup people until then. This is pathetic a 4 page thread already.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||And i hope the jerks on this||
And i hope the jerks on this site don't think it's funny and start posting fake announcements around 4pm. Have some class today people we're all waiting in anticipation, don't make it more annoying then it needs to be by being jerks.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Where are all the idiots who||
Where are all the idiots who KNEW he was going to head out for the draft when not 5 years ago we had an all american LT in the same situation stay for his last year... goes to show that alot of the time those who claim to be the most assured about an issue are the ones who end up not knowing sh$t.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Bell will get drafted... but||
Bell will get drafted... but it'll be in the mid-rounds. He has no real top end speed level and or bounce ability..... a situational 3rd down back in the league if I've ever seen one.
I wouldn't be shocked if Gholston doesn't get drafted.... I'm serious.... his laziness and bust label will follow him to the combine and unless he jsut blows the socks off the scouts in drills hes in for a very depressing draft weekend.

"Pride comes before the fall......." Has one sentence in recent memory come to symbolize so much delicious irony as that?

ARGH my first double post..... :(
|2 years 9 weeks ago||We really need to get||
We really need to get something straight here.... only South Carolina fans and bloggers refer to them as SC...... ever so rarely other SEC fans/bloggers may refer to them as SC when conversing with South Carolina fans..... to 98% of the rest of the college football world SC is short for USC.... that's just how it is. Can we just call them South Carolina or "Game Cocks" from now on?

Nick always seemed like a really good guy and loved being a Wolverine. Glad to see him finding success in life.

What is Brian refering to in the first line of this post?
I like these uniforms myself. WOuldn't want them as a continuous choice in rotation but for a special event like a bowl I think they look good. Plus I really like the Matte finish helmets.... much better then the usual shiny shit that most special uni's have.

Or the kicked who committed to us only because he thought Harbaugh was coming...

Ty Isaac was just waiting for a commitable USC offer... once he got that he immediately jumped on it and we were only in on Brionte Dunn because of the OSU mess and scandal. If it wasn't for that there wouldn't have even been a a flirtation. Those 2 had NOTHING to do with some inability to "close the deal".
|2 years 12 weeks ago||To put things a bit back on||
To put things a bit back on track...... I don't know how anyone who's followed Conley's recruitment can say they are truly suprised by this move or really angered by it. I respect the kid for being above board with his intentions unlike others we've had to deal with but its been known that he has had a strong desire to look around since back in the summer. He was committed to us for quite some time but unfortunately got bedazzled by some of the glitz being tossed his way. It also confirms the thesis that Conley really only committed to us because we were his first/only big time offer. Alot of kids would appreciate the fact that a staff was high on him and believed in him before it was reflected in his recruiting rankings but obviously Conley isnt one of those kids. Oh well.
This was identified as one of the dangers in being a staff that emphasizes hard early recruiting and getting pre-season commits... it gives other programs the ability to swoop in and be the new sexy choice without having to do alot of the leg work. I still prefer this staffs approach don't get me wrong, but this is one of the trappings of it.
