Yeah, religious talk is not permitted either...unless of course you are insulting Christians for their beliefs and Christianity in general (the Tebow posts).

Bo was the AD from 88-90, not sure how he would receive blame from this. Weidenbach and Roberson covered those years as AD.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Florida||
IIRC you are in the Tampa area. In Florida, we are given 20 practice sessions. This includes the first 3 days which are helmets and mouthguards only for the purpose of conditioning. During this period, we are not permitted to even hit sleds. Of the remaining 17 sessions, the spring jamboree(3 teams that play a half against each) or a Classic (full game against one team where punts and kickoffs are typically not live contact) count as a session as does an intra-squad spring game. With two pre-game walk-through type practices you are left with 13 days of practice where you would go full-contact in drills. We have usually gone pro-gear (helmet and shoulder pads with no pads where we play to thud, solid contact without the intent of taking the player to the ground) for about half of the parctices.
As a side note about the South's unfair advantage with spring practice, I would venture to say that throughout the fall season in Florida, we lose close to those 13 practices a year due to thunderstorms where we end up in the gym

I seem to remember Mattison saying in an interview something along the lines of starter takes 5 snaps and then subs for 2 or 3 snaps.

East Lake HS lost to Dr. Phillips in the regional finals 31-21 in the 8A (largest classification in FL) playoffs. Looks like they may be adding Manatee HS (Bradenton, FL) to their district this year to go with Sarasota Riverview (David Baas).

Also, I am sure that with him slated to play RB/Slot, his work out regimen would change to add some needed bulk. Clinton Portis is listed as 5'11 205, Emmitt Smith 5' 9 216, Barry Sanders 5' 8 203 for comparison sake. Denard looks pretty thin at 196 so I would think he could add some bulk without much sacrifice to speed.

Yeah, but you can't win the NC if you don't win the B1G Championship. You can control winning the B1G Championship, but not necessarily the NC, though with the playoff it is moreso.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||This is a must for Florida||
This is a must for Florida high schools as the rain season consumes the first 1/4 to 1/2 of the high school season. We can get storms that seemingly form right over you and dump 3-4 inches in less than an hour...it is pointless to practice in that because you can't get anything done. If there is lightening, we must be off the field for 20 minutes from the last bolt within 5 miles IIRC. The only thing I am surprised about is that they do not have gym shoes on so that they can at least get a good look.

upper deck between the 45s on the home team sidelines. This will be my son's first Michigan game. My first since the 1993 Michigan-Ohio game.

Yeah....There was a certain bowl game against the Florida Gators...the only bowl game one Tim Tebow lost.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, but...||
Not that I think they would, but coaches are not permitted to discuss recruits until they have signed a LOI.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Changing a major as a||
Changing a major as a "student" effects only the student, no other people have been "committed" to. Really, what one chooses to major in is not a "commitment". One can commit to it, but they would really be the only one effected by changing it. It would be my hope, that if my son ever had the privilege of being in this position, that he would be a man of his word... regardless of the end result.

Perhaps Hoke should send them the film on Thursday like Ohio did to State.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||After the 2nd down play of||
After the 2nd down play of that same drive, the NT Nix from ND appeared to punch a Pitt OL in the head. Obviously it wasn't called and I didn't hear the broadcasters mention a word. Did I imagine this?
|28 weeks 2 days ago||I thought it was a bad||
I thought it was a bad call...he was pursuing the play and would have had an opportunity to get in on the play had he not been blocked. He wasn't head hunted....it was a shoulder to the chest. It was a questionable call and changed the result of the game.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||To be fair, I think the PF on||
To be fair, I think the PF on the pic6 was questionable....I believe the rule is 20 yards behind the play or more...from the angle I saw on the replay it wasn't 20 yards behind...but was 20 yards away. That guy could have gotten back into the play to make a tackle because of the traffic that had to be avoided. That one plus the PI were bad calls IMO.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Seriously!||
I am convinced that they lost on purpose just to make it harder for UM to make it to the B1G championship game....or they are just that lame.
|31 weeks 6 hours ago||I would be the harm is that||
The harm would be that they have told other recruits that if they commit and want to visit somewhere else, they are not coming to Michigan. And seeing that they have enforced that policy with others (an assumption) they are not going to be hypocritical now and allow someone to do it because they are the #1 OG in the country. Character matters to them. They need to trust their players. They want a family attitude and you can't build a strong family when you are worrying about someone not being fully committed to the family. I am having a hard time understanding why so many people think it is so wrong to expect a 17-18 year old to honor his committment.
|31 weeks 3 days ago||Hmmmm...||
You are saying that Treadwell's uncle was just given a job at OU and are insinuating that this means that Treadwll will go there? Does Barry Switzer still work in Norman.....or did OU just join the SEC?

Let's not forget the trash tornado last year.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||So you don't think that||
So you don't think that Borges has alterred his offensive philosophy with Denard? I think that is laughable. Let me ask you another question, let's say he did design an offense around Denard...that means next year or following two more years he is doing a complete overhaul of the offense again to comform to his preferences...how patient would you be then. He is taking concepts that benefit Denard while at the same time trying to develop Denard to posible run some of his offense and help Denard develop into a future NFL quarterback. You do not design an offense around 1 person...because when he gets hurt, or graduates, you have no offence
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, lets ignore the fact||
Yeah, lets ignore the fact that ND's secondary is inexperienced and they were hoping to get them to bite on the run. Or the fact that it is a run/pass option and Smith made a bad decision compounded by a bad throw. I like the aggressive play calling, it sure beats getting beaten like a drum in a Rose Bowl because the defense knows what play you are running every time. Borges, I am sure, was trying to loosen up the front 7 and put pressure on an inexperienced secondary. Lets not forget the notion that sometimes you call a play to set up another play. Sometimes you succeed and sometimes you fail. This over analysis of every play ignores the fact that the offense put up nearly 300 yards of offense with 6 TOs...against a good front 7. Every play does not have to be a home run...thinking like this is why Denard makes bad decisions...Live to Play another Down.
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah....||
that ball he threw into the chest of Manti Te'o on a roll out was spot on.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah but...||
FHSAA does not allow spats over shoes and only allows clear visors.
|36 weeks 6 hours ago||Yeah...||
I think it is the coaches responsibility to dictate policy and expectations. Hoke wants kids who are committed to the University of Michigan. He tells them not to commit unless they are willing to be committed. After they commit he expects them to live by their word. That is the standard he has set, and if a player does not live by that standard then he can play elsewhere. I am fairly positive that if Shane Morris decided to take a visit to USC he would no longer have an opportunity to play at Michigan. If Hoke backtracked on that stance he would lose the respect of his team and his fans (me included). As far as Conley goes... I would really like to see the kid honor his commitment, but he really needs to make a decision...stop the chatter and stay, or open your recruitment back up and go elsewhere.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Author's intent:||
I suppose that if I focus on your intent, you are saying that the poor and disadvantaged, and persons of various ethnic groups are incapable of using proper English in their speech and writing? I find what you have written to be much more offensive than what any person has ever written in response to the grammar used in a post. While I understand the underlying message you are purveying, what you have revealed about your belief system is somewhat disturbing. I am sure you find the President surprisingly well-spoken.

If Michigan wins out pretty convincingly, Bama rolls the SEC the way they did Michigan, and the Big 12, PAC 12, and ACC champs all have a loss, then there might be a chance.

a young cow that has not yet borne a calf. To insinuate that all young cows are fat is an insult and should not be tolerated.
