"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

|3 days 22 min ago||I'm not all that impressed||
I'm not all that impressed with Franklin and Penn State, so I can certainly see them beating them. And upsets happen as well. If a coach makes Maryland into a decent team, there's no way they're going 0-12 against the other three over a four year stretch.

Psh, they've got that Under Armour money. They're going to become the Oregon of the east coast, don't you know?
But seriously, Maryland produces some really nice talent and although I was being sarcastic, the Under Armour money is not trivial. They're not going to win the division or anything, but there's no reason they can't be an 8 win team on a consistent basis.

I think there's a good chance that Butt sticks around next year, for a couple reasons.
1) He's a pretty one dimensional player right now. He gets average or slightly below average grades for his blocking in UFRs, and I seriously doubt he'd be able to block an NFL defensive end one on one right now.
2) While there's a chance we could still win the division and league, the odds are greater that we'll fall short. And one of the main reasons players come back are to accomplish additional team goals. Cook and Calhoun have said they came back because they lost to OSU and didn't win the Big Ten last year. It could be a similar situation for Butt.
3) He has a good family situation, so he might not feel as much pressure to go to the NFL than some other NCAA athletes.

To me, the amazing thing about Grantland was that I pretty much hated everything Bill Simmons wrote over the last several years. But the guy had an incredible eye for identifying and fostering talent and that was enough to win me over and get me to Grantland 5-10 times a week.

Did anyone else read the intro and think of Brian as the Grinch when the Whos Down in Whoville wake up to see everything is gone and sing their Christmas song anyway?

I have tickets to the tailgate and haven't received this email. Has everyone else seen it? Is this definitely for real?

Hmmmm, I'm curious as to whether 2016-17 could be elite, provided Irvin stays. I don't think we have enough posts on that.

Man, Bobby Jindal has completely run that state into the ground.
Please note that this is a comment on performance, much like I would say that a football player had a bad game, not a comment on his affiliations.

Yes, because Levert is playing for John Groce and Illinois right now.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Crazy how the responses have||
Crazy how the responses have changed from just a few years ago. Michigan no longer commands the awe that it once did, that's for sure. I don't think it will take a ton to bring Michigan back, but Harbaugh and Wheatley certainly have their work cut out for them.
|43 weeks 2 days ago||While I agree that he doesn't||
While I agree that he doesn't have breakaway speed, he looks a step up from De'Veon to me. Higdon turns a corner or two in his highlights and outruns some guys; you never saw that from Smith in his HS highlights.
|47 weeks 2 days ago||It appears not, but as Brian||
It appears not, but as Brian and others have mentioned, he's more of an NFL guy and it wouldn't be too surprising if he was never interested in the position.
|50 weeks 4 days ago||Butch Jones Agent||
Butch Jones agent, you da real MVP. I think he parlayed little to no interest from Michigan into a fat raise for Jones. Pretty well done on his part.

Don't know why it wasn't clickable. This should be better, unless I screw it up again...

For those who refuse to read the Freep, thankfully Baumgardner also tackled this topic on MLive and you can still read about Mone here: http://www.mlive.com/wolverines/index.ssf/2014/09/truly_one_of_a_kind_michigan_d.html

After the Ray Rice incident, everyone in America should know that every single thing that happens in a casino will be caught on film.

Do you have a link to the Week 2 picks? I looked around and couldn't find it.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||And he's enrolling early too.||
And he's enrolling early too. I agree, I think with his combination of strength, size, and the fact that he'll have 6 months in the program, he'll definitely feature somewhere in the rotation next year.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||It's going to be interesting||
It's going to be interesting to see where he plays. I think he's a strongside defensive end if Michigan goes back to the Under next year, but a 3-Tech all the way if they stick with the Over.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Man, read my previous posts.||
Man, read my previous posts. I don't troll. This is something I legitimately think. People, including many Michigan fans from what I've seen here and elsewhere, like to have it both ways when it comes to the way sport types interact with the game and the media. Personally, I don't particularly like Johnny Football overall, but I like that despite numerous attempts to crush his spirit, he still plays football and carries about his business on his own terms.

Man, we've got a lot of crotchety people on this board. You can't both complain that Hoke never says anything interesting and also rag on someone like Manziel. At least interesting things happen when Manziel plays and talks.

As a Nats fan I just want to say thanks to Dombrowski. Going to see Fister this Friday, and I'm excited.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||It does mean he can, but||
It does mean he can, but people are speculating that he won't because he's going to be fed up wuth risking his health for free. Which is certainly something to consider for him.

Can't confirm, he hasn't been named in the rumors yet.

Eh, this one isn't over. He's only ever been there once, he's on a visit high, and it's completely across the country. We'll have another chance at this one.

Thanks for the explanation, what you're saying does make sense.
And I did notice the 385 pound guy. Holy crap, there is a lot of sprinting in that young man's future.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Where's the Beef?||
I'm curious as to why we don't have more guys on the lines over 300 when we're not a spread team. Alabama has 15 guys over 300 pounds, and while I know they play a 3-4, we also have a nose tackle position. It just seems like guys like Kalis and Dawson should be headed in the opposite direction.

People have been teeing off on this on twitter. Rice gets two games but Terrelle Pryor gets five for getting free tattoos when he wasn't even in the NFL. It's also a four game suspension if you test positive for adderall. Just a farce.
