competes for worst poster on this board, and is a disgrace to his avatar.

Congratulations! Good luck.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||in mine denard took a direct||
in mine denard took a direct snap to the right and we had uconn outflanked. he scored to put us up 10-0. don't know how much time was left but i knew we were going to win.
i dreamt of The Game, just bits and pieces, Steve Breaston returning a punt for a touchdown, that sort of thing.
glad you started this thread, good work.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||couldn't agree more, that||
couldn't agree more, that part stood out to me most. I think it's more indicative of how well Schofield is panning out. Imagine two redshirt freshmen starting at the tackle positions by year's end. Takes the edge off the panic for offensive line recruits, in my mind.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||He's huge (6'6", looks even||
He's huge (6'6", looks even bigger) and really athletic. Great red-zone threat. Michigan is probably hoping he'll line up in the pseudo-tight end-wide receiver-h-back position.
But yeah, I hadn't heard anything prior to this either.
|5 years 16 weeks ago||I saw JT walking around||
I saw JT walking around campus about two weeks ago. I'm about 5'11" and he had me by a few inches...but he did look thin. Looks like the coaches are trying to keep him at cornerback weight as best as possible.
|5 years 16 weeks ago||yes, but this would be a HUGE||
yes, but this would be a HUGE feather in RichRod's cap vis a vis recruiting for this and next year's class. this is a marquee game on par with playing in the national championship in most recruits' eyes (without actually needing to win to get there).
|5 years 16 weeks ago||No, that's OK, I'll leave it||
No, that's OK, I'll leave it as is. It's not the end of the world over there, and pull-quoting would be cumbersome given that it's a flowing column-type thingy.

promote to front page plz
|5 years 17 weeks ago||ha||
ha, good call, hadn't even considered it. so far so good.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||I am an optimist||
I heard yesterday that optimism is divine inspiration. I've always felt things will get better. We've had a lot of breaks not go our way, but we'll surprise plenty of people this year...even if for some of us it won't be much of a surprise.

"Minor bounced back to finish the season strong"? His missing the Ohio State game was in my mind the low point of the season.

|5 years 22 weeks ago||Nicely put. I tracked down||
Nicely put. I tracked down the 2003 recruiting class and saw that that was why we were in close Big Ten contention for two years (from 06-07). It's loaded. same as our 2009 class. RichRod really is a great recruiter to do such a thing off a 3-9 record.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||Thank you for this post||
I am going through something similar, and needed to hear I wasn't alone.
You're 26. I'm 24. We're in our twenties, man. This is our fuck-up decade. I think you know the right answer here. Being good at something doesn't make it the right thing for you to do.
Go for it.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||huh, i knew there was one||
I knew there was one. I wonder if whoever put that list together forgot to include him.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||He's really, really biased||
He's really, really biased toward Ohio State and Michigan State. He's a total Michigan hater. He covered OSU forever and almost never concedes anything for the Wolverines as far as I've seen.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||he also said rangers over the flyers||
and talks like a real hoser
|5 years 32 weeks ago||i hate||
trolls, man. trollin' trolls. trolls trollin' to raise everybody's blood pressure in the name of "starting conversation." look up Larry Burton sometime. Dude's the trolliest of the trolls. Hate him.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||How much you want to bet....||
...Rosenberg was behind this? Doing a little snooping around on R&R in Morgantown?
|5 years 33 weeks ago||gotta get Turner on the field||
I feel like Turner is the Denard Robinson of this defense. With the ball skills the scouts raved about, you have to get him on the field in some capacity, even if it's at spur/bandit.
Also, isn't Woolfolk already a CB, albeit one playing off the LOS?
|5 years 33 weeks ago||excellent topic||
Excellent topic, fun to think about.
I'd love Christian Westerman to jump on board and lock down that left tackle spot for 3-4 years.
I also like Darius Jennings, a super-fast athlete out of Maryland who would be devastating for defenses out of the backfield or in the slot.
Depriest, for all the reasons other posters named above.
Dee Hart, naturally.
And maybe throw in DT Tim Jernigan, future Gator and a force on the inside.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||i introduced this the wrong way||
guys, i'll own up. I introduced this the wrong way.
first of all, i'm from michigan, not san francisco. I'm not some cali DB ripping on the great midwest. i went to michigan, graduated in '08, and try to consider myself a michigan homer but not a DB about it.
second, i really just rip on the izzo love, but it's all in fun. part of it of course is being motivated by my love for michigan and how i feel the residual effects of sparty's success will hurt us. the other part is because i, like you, find it just detestable when ANYONE says something good about Sparty.
in sum, i just wanted to clue this board into my radio show. i introduced it in a stupid, sensationalistic manner that was unwise, and i apologize for that. there's no touching the guy.
trust me, you will probably like the show, though. winston and i are legit. i plan to move back to michigan and hope to bring a simi;ar vibe to a michigan radio station (if they'll have me).
i can see your tl;dr responses now.

Dude, lighten up, it's all in fun.

Pirate Cat Radio: www.piratecatradio.com
Pirate radio is nice; it means no complying with FCC regs—but yes, also not sounding like a real station sometimes.
There was an Anthony Bourdain episode about it a little while back that you might recognize.
You can grab the other podcasts through there too, if you like. Go to DJ Schedule and click on Pregame Ritual. This was probably one of our strongest episodes so far. Sometimes we get a little too stoned.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Fair enough||
Ha, fair enough. I suppose I rip more on Izzo fellators.
Just call him what my cohost calls him: the Little Magician.
|5 years 39 weeks ago||Thanks, guys||
Thanks, guys, for the kind words. I had serious hesitations about posting the article here and inviting all the (justified) criticism of B/R and of the people who work there.
I hear those criticisms, and I've emphasized to my bosses that now that we've broken into the market, we need to turn our attention to getting better with our quality and editing. But in a lot of ways, they're still too obsessed with pageviews.
Anyhow, Go Blue.
|5 years 40 weeks ago||so lame||
so lame that this board negs for unpopular opinions. i've seen it happen to other people, but you only grasp its level of profound suck when it happens to you.
