it is difficult to develop good technique this early. I'd imagine he has had some pretty good growth spurts and has gone through or is going through coordination issues due to it (can really impact ability to play low with power and athleticism). Also, when you are bigger than everyone else, you are not really forced to learn/use technique because you can outsize every one.

Feel free to judge as you see fit. You can justify your actions all you want...I know I am just as guilty as she is.

The point wasn't that you spoke to someone like that. It was that, I am pretty sure, 99.9% of us have used words to hurt people we were upset with no matter how justified we think we are. She was out of line...but I am not going to act like there haven't been times when I lost control as well and would be embarrassed by my actions if I had to watch them on national news/gossip shows. Acting like she is the worst human being in the world is a stretch.

...we have a bunch of hypocrites in this thread. How many of you, when you felt that you were wronged and were being taken advantage of, have not said something that was meant to hurt someone's feelings?
What would people think of you if we filmed your worst moments in life and showed the video to the world....and then edited it so that no one really knew what set you off to begin with?
Why do you think the video was edited in the first place?
Why do you think the video was not sent privately to ESPN initially?
Britt took responsibility, she admitted she was wrong, indicated she needed to handle the situation better and apologized. This board is big about people apologizing (i.e. Chris Webber), but when people do, you still want to hurl your judgments.....so why should apologies be made?

...let's also not forget that the offense is scripted in that what they do on any given play is pre-determined (unless it is an option route) and the defense is reactionary to the play in front of them. The defense saw those plays for 14 practices, this combined with the fact that they are simply better players, at this point, and have more depth means they were probably going to dominate the line of scrimmage, and they did.

but think of the benefit to the local schools in learning from coaches the caliber of the Michigan staff...and I would hope that local players get to attend without charge if that is within the rules, which it ought to be if it is part of the contract, i.e. paid for by the school/ set up as a fund raiser.

your point B contradicts your point A? Doesn't being depressed by the lack of distinguishable seasons speak to your emotional strength? Wuss! I dare say the Ann Arbor winter is not worse than the Florida summer.

daughters have had Ventricular SDs. One closed on its own by 6 months (she will be turning 11 in April).....My 8 month old still had one at her 6 month check, but the cardiologist is confident it will take care of itself over the next year. This is a truly heartbreaking story.

levels of football (HS, youth, college underclassmen), when you reach the upper level of football you are in fact coaching. Upper classmen are coaching the younger guys, NFL veterans/starters are helping and coaching rookies and newcomers. They watch unimagineable amounts of film, turn in scouting reports on the payers (not just teams) they will be seeing on the field and tendencies, etc. He may not have the teaching/ item analysis, which is why he is a GA, but he certainly has the insight and experience to coach the OL position.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Funny...||
I was talking to a friend/acquaintance of his today and told him that Iowa is notorious for destroying ACLs. And questioned why he would want to play in a corn field for a coach who may not even be there beyond this year when he can play for the guy who coached in the past couple of NFC championship games. I then showed him the average star rating for Iowa and Michigan.

RHS was 4 - 6, 0-3 vs 8A teams, 1 of those only won 1 game all year, and the 4 teams you beat only combined for 6 total wins all year. RHS played Bayshore, Booker, and Southeast in 5A. Venice and Lehigh in 6A, Lakewood Ranch and Sarasota in 7A. Manatee and St. Pete are talented, Venice is usually very well coached. The rest of the schedule is mediocre at best.

the names you listed above have all be used on this board with some degree of regularity...perhaps not as much DickRod...substitute that with Joke. This blog is not above the fray in that regard.

I'd actually be interested in seeing a break down of the elite programs and see how many of the kids that have a year of eligibilty left actually get that 5th year. If you have a guy that has been in the program for 4 years and has contributed little on the game field, do you keep them on for a 5th year? If they are not granted a 5th year on the team, do they have to foot the bill for the 5th year if they have not graduated....if so it makes sense to have some sort of academic grant system set up for them if that is within the rules.
|14 weeks 21 hours ago||Just the cherry on top...||
4 day weekend, Legoland on Monday with the kids, big weekend for official weekends. A good posBang is just the final touch to perfection.
OK, so I'm exaggerating a bit....but looking forward to a good weekend!

to you and Justin as I posted the article again further up in a comment without screening all the posts first.

Apparently, Jim tried to hire him at SF when Drevno went to USC. Here is an interesting article on Jay's coaching background. http://www.mercurynews.com/49ers/ci_26279169/jim-harbaughs-son-forges-own-path

I am saying he hurt his team. He could have clutched the ball to his chest and it likely is first and goal, instead, yes he tried to make a play, but in doing so had a negative result. When a Quarterback tries it thread a needle and gets the INT, we don't excuse as well, he was just trying to score, we say he mad a bad decision. This is what Dez did, he made a bad decision and it hurt his team. And the fact that he made a bad decision doesn't make the rule dumb. If he was not down by contact, and the ball popped out and was recovered by GB...I am willing to bet the vast majority of people saying catch now, would say incomplete in that scenario.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||The player||
must maintain possession of the football as he goes to the ground. Had he pulled it to the his chest instead of stretching to ball out we are not having this conversation. He hurt his team by sticking it out with one arm instead of securing the ball. The rule may be dumb, but it serves to eliminate referee opinion from the game in lieu of cold hard facts. The ball hit the ground and moved in his hand and therefore was incomplete.

If your only job was to recruit kids and learn the ins and outs of one position for months and you got paid 6 figures a year to do so.....how quickly do you think you'd learn it, especially with all the resources he has at his disposal? An he was the RB coach of a team that led their conference in rushing in his first year coaching that position. This would be his 3rd year at the position.

played Center/Linebacker at Ohio State, as a coach at Michigan was responsible for DE '69-'72, DC '73-'76, HC @ Illinois where he amassed a 6-24-3 record from '77-'79, '80-'81 QB, '82-'86 DC, '87-'89 OC, '90-'94 HC. From there he spent time at various NFL teams coaching TE, LB, and one year at DC.
Lloyd Carr was a QB in college and coached DBs and was a DC at UM.
Roy wants to be a career coach he needs to build his knowledge base on coaching different positions. in 2011 as a GA he helped with OL. This is how you build sustainability and help to build your own coaching tree. If you keep the same people in the same roles, they don't grow that much professionally. If an OL coach wants to be an OC one day, he'd better learn the techniques and skills needed at the other offensive positions. If he wants to be a HC, he had better have a good grasp of what they are doing on the other side of the football.
