|18 hours 6 min ago||Thanks for the heads up||
I thought it must be really soon. Something to look forward to this week. It's always like Christmas in July.
|21 hours 29 min ago||No, it was Christensen||
He's just a very bad actor and shouldn't be in any role that requires him to speak.
|2 days 15 hours ago||How can you top that epic rant||
as a football coach post-game? He should have dropped the microphone on the ground before leaving the room.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Avoiding the Ann Arbor Art Fair||
Just started today, so I-94 coming into AA was backed way up this morning. After that's over, it's only a couple weeks till Fall practice starts.
|4 days 13 hours ago||No it doesn't||
Everyone here is aware of it and don't care any more about it - other than you I guess.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Downvote||
The sorry at the end is a sign of weakness.

He like everyone else in college football seems to be afraid of The Harbaugh. All for the better. It works in our favor.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Bingo||
As big of a douche-barrel as Goodell is, he is still a massively overpaid puppet of the owners. They pay Goodell to be their fall guy while he does their bidding. Most of these owners (not all) are petty, ruthless, and greedy people who apparently hold grudges for a very long time.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Not surprising||
All the stuff we've read about him shows he is a very hard worker who has a tremendously good attitude as well. This is not a young man who will try and skate by on his pure ability.
|1 week 2 days ago||From what I've read, he seems to have a great attitude||
and strong work ethic. So, I think with TW's tutelage, he will do well at Michigan. How well is very hard to forecast quite yet. I'm an eternal optimist when it comes to new guys, so I think everyone here will be very pleased with his career.
|1 week 2 days ago||Nice post and I agree||
But 10 points in almost a year on the board? You should post more often.
|1 week 3 days ago||Agree||
I watched him play at Crisler as a grad student and he is one of my top Michigan players of all time. He was tireless. The guy would play almost the entire 40 minutes game after game.
|1 week 3 days ago||Already go ours thru the Michigan||
athletic department, but don't know yet where they are in the stadium. I concur with the suggestion on making hotel reservations. We've made ours in Davenport for Friday night and North Liberty (just north of Iowa City) on Saturday night. It seems strange that Iowa is making tickets available to the general public for such a popular game. You'd think they'd have no trouble selling out. Oh well, Iowa.
|1 week 4 days ago||+1 for posting one of my||
favorite Disney scenes.
|1 week 4 days ago||Green hasn't learned he needs a||
fall guy. He better watch the Chris Carter seminar again.
|1 week 4 days ago||That's too bad||
At this point it's probably bust. The Supreme Court is highly unlikely to hear the case. He can always try and pursue some non-judicial options like a social media scorched-Earth campaign against Roger Goodell (fuck him BTW), but that is probably not going to be worth it.
|1 week 5 days ago||Yeah, yeah, yeah||
I'm not going to let your realistic, but glass is half-empty view of my freshman year at Michigan detract from my positive view of that season. Outside of the bizarre loss at Minnesota, it was still a great year, including the huge lop-sided win against Texas A&M in Ann Arbor on national TV.
|1 week 5 days ago||C'mon man||
Are you comparing Ann Arbor traffic to the northern burbs? The Detroit suburbs are plagued with heavy traffic, certainly no worse than Ann Arbor. And bad road repair is just as bad in Oakland County, if due to nothing else other than the higher traffic there. I have to agree however with your snow removal comment. That's true. The AA City Council has funnelled funds away from that for years - probaby to tacky public art.
|1 week 5 days ago||My head would be up to the bottom of his chin||
But my real question is was he wearing shoes when measured? I assume not. Which makes me pretty excited.
|1 week 5 days ago||What do we expect from the leader of||
the Joe Pa Cult. As someone else here just said, they'll take their belief that he is a Saint to their graves.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm sure you're right about the gossip||
But it shows how large and widespread the Joe Pa Cult is. When nothing is more important than protecting the Great Joe Pa and the football program he leads, little "incidents" like child abuse get dismissed or forgotten quickly. Disgusting and sickening the more you think about it.
|1 week 5 days ago||I believe one likely reason none of the||
assistants took any action other than possibly telling Paterno about it was they were following his lead of ignoring it and hoping it would all go away. When your leader sets the morality bar low, it becomes easier to just let things slide. I'm not in any way condoning that mentality, just trying to understand how such heinous crimes were swept under the rug for so long.
|1 week 5 days ago||For the life of me I can't figure||
out why this guy wasn't one of the highest rated players in the northeast U.S. His tape, physical measureables, performance in games, everything points toward a player with BIG potential. I can't wait to see him as a Michigan player.
|1 week 6 days ago||Does Michigan really have room in the 2017||
class for this guy with the other high-profile targets at receiver - and guys already on the roster? I'd guess Martin ends up at Iowa.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Very nice||
I'd say that can't hurt our chances of getting Thomas either.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Same here||
I saw enough of that game sitting in their stadium. The worst part may have the PA announcer everytime Indiana got another first down (which was frequently), - this gutteral, clenched teeth "Firrrrrsssst down Indiana!".
|2 weeks 2 days ago||It seems offense is where I'd like to see him||
but I can see the safety argument quite clearly. On offense, he's going to be up against some serious competition for touches. And it's too early to tell whether his talent level and ability will be strong enough to get any playing time. But certainly you can see the opportunities at safety right now. Either way, I'm glad we got him instead of someone like say, Indiana. Evans is one of those kind of guys who could go to IU and in that offense torch us for shit ton of yards.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The fact we are strongly in the game||
with an elite recruit from Alabama is confirmation to all of us (not that we needed it) that Harbaugh and his staff are doing an incredible job of recruiting. They are not afraid of going against any elite coaches for top recruits. I don't think that was the case with the previous coaches.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||IMO not, unless||
Michigan can get a really top guy. We should be pretty stocked up at TE for a while. I'd use the scholarship on a position of higher need if it were me.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Harbaugh must have given this decision||
the green light. You have to admire his confidence. But I think it shows how much he wanted the rivalry brought back. ND either didn't care as much or did a better job hiding their desire. I think Warde will have some 'splainin to do on this one.
