to play football, not to play trumpet

I know we still need to wait for Johnson to sign for his grade situation to get worked out. Does anyone know why Gary hasn't signed yet?

I understand people debating an issue and having a different stance than others. However, the people responding hate against Jim Harbaugh are stating flat out lies.
Jim Harbaugh didn't rescind anyone's offer because he found someone better. He did it because they didn't continue to meet the expectations that were given to the student athelete when the offer was presented.
I could understand people debating the fact that they don't agree an offer should ever be pulled once given. That would be a personal judgement call.
I personally feel Jim is doing the best thing for a big college in order to be competitive. This isn't a college scholarship for grades. It is for football.

The penalty on Burflict was obvious, where he almost took the other guy's head off. The last pentalty was extremely questionable. Not to mention throughout the game there were lopsided calls against the Bengals that were rediculous at the worst times. How the Steelers didn't get called for a targeting call where the Bengals guy fumbled the ball because his head was almost taken is beyond my understanding. Not to mention, the great hit that was called a personal foul on the Bengals defensive back where he led with his shoulder and hit the guy in the chest. Both those calls were terrible and cost points. The Bengals did screw that game up though at the end.

This kid looks good! I love how he makes plays in his highlight tape. He makes tough catches, blocks well, and he makes athletic moves once he has the ball in his hands. He could be useful on kick returns and/or punt returns.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||I was thinking the same.||
I thought Isaac looked a lot better than Smith did this last game. Smith does a good job at getting the tough yards and making it difficult to tackle him. However, Smith always seems to run into the blockers and rarely finds the holes.

The score isn't bad for not having a good quarterback.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Get Rudock off the field!||
Man I thought this guy was supposed to be good? He is over throwing open men, and two interceptions both bad plays.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||I don't agree.||
I think they are new to this system, and Utah is stacking the box.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||The white uniforms look nice!||
I don't mind the white uniforms at all. I think they look sharp. I like the simplicity of them.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Wow on Wheatly's size||
I wonder if the staff planned on him gaining so much weight. It seems like 31lbs is an abnormal amount of weight for someone to gain in just a few months, especially for someone that was thought to be a tight end.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||I like the size of the offensive line||
Everyone is now 300+ on the offensive line except two people. What is surpising at that is Wheatly is as big as the two offensive linemen that aren't 300+.

Will the app be coming out for Android? I see it is made for I-tunes. =(

After listening to that interview, Harbaugh seemed to answer the questions like he would any interviewer. It appears to me that Harbaugh didn't want to respond with specifics to the questions about how he is coaching the team. Also, it seemed like Harbaugh felt that Cowherd was rediculous to assume that Harbaugh would use the interview to show how he would sell Michigan to recruits. In my opinion, It was more about the questions Cowherd asked.
Harbaugh seems to love to share generalities such as: how he enjoys building relationships with recruits, loves coaching, and loves the University of Michigan. I can't remember ever hearing Harbaugh discussing specifics with what he would say to recruits for recruiting or specifics for how he coaches the players, other than with enthuisiasm unknown to mankind. That interview was bad because of Cowherd.

I think you meant to say, "you probably are NOT suited for a Jim Harbaugh program."
|31 weeks 6 days ago||I tend to think the one year scholarships are a better idea.||
I may be of a different opinion than some people on here, but I feel it is a good idea to do one year scholarships, especially at schools like Michigan where there is so much scrutiny on high performance. So many fans complain about the team not meeting expectations, and sometimes kids just don't turn out to be as good as people thought.
The kids should be rewarded for their ability to play. If this was the norm, then there wouldn't need to be grey areas regarding unnecessary medicals. You would just discontinue the person's scholarship if they are not good enough to play. In this instance, the kid can go to a different college and be able to play if they are in fact good enough to play at a lower level.
We put such a big emphases on winning at the highest level and sometimes it is in fact coaching that needs changed. However, when coaching is not the cause, to have the ability to replace an athlete with another more suited for your level of play would be more beneficial.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Wide Recievers||
I sure wish we would hear some good news about quality wide receivers being highly interested in our program. I feel like we are in such a down period with the quality of our receivers. Also, has anyone heard any news about possible wide receiver 5th year transfers? It seemed like there was talk going on about that possibility, but the talk stopped. Is there even any possible quality 5th year receiver seniors still looking to transfer?
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Is Sansa Stark dead?||
I am wondering if Sansa is dead? She jumped off that wall that was hundreds of feet tall. All the good characters have something bad happening. Also, I have had friends that read the book say that Arya became a bad ass. I loved that scene where she killed dude, but that was all we got =(. I hate how she became blind. This episode left so many cliff hangers.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||I think everyone has to right to their opinion||
I don't think it is really considerate to tell others that they are idiots because they don't share your opinion though. I am mixed about Lebron. I feel like he does some incredible things and then he misses shots he really shouldn't. You can say it is great defense all you want, but he was missing open shots and even missing quite a few free throws tonight. I never seen Michael Jordan do that, especially when it mattered in an NBA finals series. Lebron is a rare physical speciman and a great athelete. I just don't know what to think sometimes when watching him play. He is a pretty spectacular player though.

I was feeling bad for the dragon getting the spears stuck in him. I am thinking if the dragons are going to be able to help their "momma" rule the kindoms, they will need armour built for them.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Loved It||
That was a great episode! My heart was beating hard for the last 10 minutes. I kept thinking don't let Jon Snow die. I wonder if we will even see Bran this season?

I am like the others that have posted about Dayton. I have not found any bars that are Michigan friendly. I typically call around to see what bar is willing to show the game on one of their televisions. I normally watch the games alone at home because I am too busy yelling at the television. I think it would be great if we could get a group of people who live here in Dayton to meet up and watch games together. The one thing I don't like about going to a bar to watch the games is the volume tends to be down on the Michigan games so you can't hear the broadcasters. I occasionally meet people who are Michigan fans while out and have noticed more lately now that Harbaugh is our coach, which has been a welcoming change.
|43 weeks 5 days ago||I wish we could get an elite offensive skilled position player||
It feels like it has been forever since we have had an elite offensive skilled player at wide receiver or runningback. I miss the days we had spectacular play from those two positions.

I would have loved to hear someone ask if they have tried Jabrill out on offense.
|45 weeks 3 days ago||I like the brighter yellow too.||
I don't mind if it is Nike or Addidas. I think the Henne and Denard football Jerseys both look really sharp. I think the Nike shirt shown at the beginning of the post looks too bland and boring. That is just my opinion though.
|1 year 2 days ago||Wow I agree 100%||
I just don't understand what a life long M fan means to some people. I live in Dayton, Ohio. If I had the opportunity to play for Michigan, there would be no decision. Also, he lived in Michigan his whole life and had the opportunity to not only be coached by Jim Harbaugh but also Tyronne Wheatley. This makes no sense to me. I don't care how good OSU is. Fandom makes no sense to me.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||This announcer is an idiot||
How is it great coverage when the defensive players are hanging on the receivers? I guess because they don't get called for pass interference that it is great coverage.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||I hate living in Ohio||
I hate living in Ohio and seeing all these positive posts from my friends. Not to mention, hearing all these positive comments from my parents. I should be happy for them, but I hate Ohio State.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||I am not sure if this was thread worthy||
I am hoping this game does not affect any chances we have of flipping Weber.

Is there a place to report things like this for investigation?
|1 year 5 weeks ago||I really want Ducks to win!||
I wanted the Ducks to win before, but now I want them to win more than ever. I actually was torn about this game. I didn't want either team to win and am happy to see Saban so distraught.
