I think Ed is good but I definitely miss Karsch. He was able to put the fact that he went to MSU behind to be a great interviewer and analyst for Michigan.
|2 hours 52 min ago||It makes Debord seem like an||
It makes Debord seem like an ass but you've got to be ready for the games with uptempo offenses and staying on the field. You've got to build an endurance rather than babying them or you're not going to play well when you're tired in the 4th quarter.
|8 hours 21 min ago||We better get some damn good||
We better get some damn good players. If we get a bag of balls for him I'm not going to be happy.
|9 hours 6 min ago||Huge tells MSU people to shut||
Huge tells MSU people to shut up when they're being obnoxious so he gets points from me even though his act is terrible.
|9 hours 34 min ago||Our 2010 team didn't have||
Our 2010 team didn't have much talent either but got much better in 2011 just by being in position. I expect the same kind of improvement in offense as we had in the defense with this coaching staff. I don't expect us to be blowing people off the ball but I think you can start to see some more big run plays and less interceptions. We can make a big improvement if we do those two things.
|9 hours 38 min ago||When we won the big ten in||
When we won the big ten in basketball the first time the analysts picked us to finish at the bottom of the big ten due to the previous year being bad and losing DeShawn Sims and Manny Harris. Bottom line is you've got to see a few games first to know what you've got.
|9 hours 44 min ago||People are always overly||
People are always overly cautious during a coaching change if you look at our last transition. When you have Harbaugh, a bunch of games bungled away last year by the coach, a majority of our players returning for the first time in years, and MSU and Ohio both at home, you're bound to be a little undervalued.
|9 hours 52 min ago||We now have a better coach||
We now have a better coach than them anyways. Their coach is going to be an ass regardless and we can't play games in July.
|1 day 7 hours ago||In basketball we've had the||
In basketball we've had the success and our recruiting has gotten worse from the days of us getting Mitch McGary or Derrick Walton. In football, we did fine last year recruiting with a coach on the hot seat. Butch Jones, James Franklin, Charlie Strong, and Brady Hoke had great first year classes. Why can Harbaugh not after being on tv late in the NFL playoffs for the last 4 years?
|1 day 7 hours ago||You need players too to win||
You need players too to win as well as coach. I'm sick and tired of recruits we have been in on in basketball spurning us to go to Kentucky and Duke and those schools winning championships. If the same thing happens in football as our miss rate has been higher than I can ever remember at Michigan for this class, they'll wind up at places like Alabama, Florida State, and of course Ohio State. Guess which teams were in the playoffs this year? Guess which teams have won the last three championships? Even your poster child for recruiting not mattering in MSU has a losing record to Ohio State and has never played in a NCG. Lets cut the bs and realize we need the best players coming in to win.
|1 day 8 hours ago||A guy offered by Uconn,||
A guy offered by Uconn, Syracuse, and Air Force. How's it going to go when he faces Ohio State's secondary who's three deep has been offered by everyone in the country.
|1 day 8 hours ago||What's happening with||
What's happening with recruiting that we're getting whipped like this? We had three highly regarded TEs in three classes with a defensive line coach in Hoke and now that we have a highly successful NFL coach at that position we have nobody at the TE position who wants to play here.
|1 day 9 hours ago||This is where DD proves his||
This is where DD proves his worth. We better get some good pieces for Price. Hopefully in the bullpen.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Football will never leave||
Football will never leave the top spot in America even if less people are playing it. It's the Super Bowl vs. the MLS championship.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Hiring Mel Peason and getting||
Hiring Mel Peason and getting the big ten to have MSU play twice in a row in Ann Arbor are the only 2 things left.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Yeah. Things like fan||
Yeah. Things like fan relations are important to being AD but if he hired Schiano and we signed Nike for 1 million a year he would be just another AD.
|2 days 8 hours ago||That looks more like Thad||
That looks more like Thad Matta to be honest.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Are we now the big ten big||
Are we now the big ten big ten network facebook page who posts something about Urban Meyer and Ohio State every day? So far this week, they've posted about a butter statue of Urban, a dummy prank, Cardale Jones tossing a boy into a pool, is Urban Meyer the best coach in college today, and breaking down reigning national champion Ohio State's qb options.
|2 days 10 hours ago||I'd definitely take him but||
I'd definitely take him but I'm not sure that it would look good for us to take someone denied by another big ten school but it could be non academic related.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Agreed. Hopefully we can||
Agreed. Hopefully we can still get Bridges if he wanted to go here. Hopefully we don't get too complacent as other big ten teams are starting to get better recruits and lose our foothold in the league.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Looks like Dantonio is making||
Looks like Dantonio is making space after cutting ties with a recruit a few days ago and this.
|3 days 25 min ago||Best case: We win every game||
Best case: We win every game by 50 enroute to a national championship while Urban Meyer leaves for Utah State.
Worst Case: We lose 77-7 to UNLV and go 0-12. Jabrill Peppers breaks his ankle on the first series against Utah and is out for the season. Jim Harbaugh leaves coaching to open a Culvers and we hire co-head coaches of Rich Rod and Brady Hoke.
|3 days 29 min ago||I wonder what the Spartan||
I wonder what the Spartan reaction to this is. If Michigan let him back on the team, they would be crying foul.
|3 days 4 hours ago||Agreed. Women are qualified||
Agreed. Women are qualified enough to coach football but it's going to be hard to find a female who has the experience to do it compared to sports like baseball or basketball where there's a female equivalent in playing it.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Also, if they did it like in||
Also, if they did it like in past years, the line for Harbaugh might end in Saline.
|3 days 9 hours ago||I wish the adults could still||
I wish the adults could still get autographs and go but the ebay people ruin it for the genuine Michigan fans.
|4 days 9 hours ago||90 percent of Ohio is rolling||
90 percent of Ohio is rolling farm lands. It's no surprise that they are what they are without another college team and such a big state.
|4 days 11 hours ago||I think 2015 was a pretty||
I think 2015 was a pretty terrible recruiting class on par with 2011 but 2014 was a relatively good class that just had only 16 players bringing it down.

August 8th: Upshur announcement day
|4 days 12 hours ago||I'm not sure he has a huge||
I'm not sure he has a huge dislike for Urban Meyer. He just has a huge ego and a need to be a dick to everyone possible at all times.
