"Clear and always on key". Bands of today could learn a good lesson from listening to Greg Lake. Find a lead singer who can sing well. And also, write good music. Yes, I'm an old guy who was a teenager when ELP was starting out. This is one of my very favorite ELP songs:

But that's not Hoke's fault. He got the going rate for a HC at a top program like Michigan including the typical termination clause before a contract is up. I don't think anyone feels sorry for him from a financial point of view.

|7 hours 33 min ago||I would LOVE to see Harris||
rumbling down the field against OSU trampling their DB's and running through inept arm tackles of their LB's - for a TD. (And then have the refs miss a holding call on Michigan on the play).
|1 day 7 hours ago||Yup, and don't forget||
about Eubanks. He could end up being a big wideout, but either way, he'll be a large target to throw to.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Solomon and Tufele please||
That would make this an awesome DL class with the other guys.
|1 day 8 hours ago||I hate to say it, but this is what happens||
when even iconic coaches are allowed to stay too long. Eventually, the game and coaching gets too much for them to handle any more. I'm very thankful for all Red's done for Michigan Hockey, but he needs to go. Hopefully, we already have someone that we can hire very soon.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Man, this team||
Is soft in every way. No toughness at all.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha||
Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
|1 day 23 hours ago||I hope you lose all your points||
For that shitty comment. Unfortunately though it probably won't happen.
|2 days 7 hours ago||And Leatherwood to some degree too||
The scary thing is that Alabama could miss on all those guys and still pull in an incredible class.
|2 days 13 hours ago||I was at that game||
The thing I remember the most though, was after the game was over, my wife and I had just walked out of the stadium. And we see this couple, who were FSU fans, crying over the loss. At least that's what we assumed they were crying about. I think to this day, that's the only time we've ever seen fans actually crying right after a lost game.
|3 days 6 hours ago||That's pretty funny||
Funny, I don't remember my English Teach in middle school using that example.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Very good news indeed||
With a little good fortune, hard work, and Harbaugh, we can finally make a big dent in OSU's lead on 5*'s.
|3 days 7 hours ago||I don't have any problem with Harbaugh's||
sideline demeanor. He's fiery, passionate, and doesn't hold it in. U-M knew that going in and so did the rest of us. Is that somehow making the referees in the Big Ten dislike him? I don't think so, by itself anyway. I think a lot of people outside the Michigan nation dislike him because of how he's all over the place in the news. They think he's doing this in some contrived image-building campaign to boost his ego or something. Of course, we know it isn't. Haters gonna hate though.
|4 days 3 hours ago||I hate FSU||
and their dirty, cheating history and tradition. I hope we kick their Seminole asses like we did Florida last year.
|4 days 6 hours ago||1985 Rose Bowl||
Ohio St. vs. USC. I was working in San Diego and my Dad (grew up in Ohio liking OSU) was working a lot on the West Coast with his company. There were a bunch of Ohio State grads working in our company's facilities department, and I thought it would be nice to take my Dad to see the Rose Bowl since he had never been to one. So, I got a few tickets through these co-workers. We sat in the Ohio section and my Dad, having no other jacket to wear, wore his Michigan one. Right away, we took a lot of crap from the Buckeye fans, but fortunately it was good-natured. Ohio lost the game. I don't remember much other than Keith Byers playing at RB for OSU.
As a side note, my wife and I had already gone to the Holiday Bowl that season in December in San Diego where we watched Michigan lose to BYU. Jim Harbaugh was on the sidelines wearing a cast on his broken arm.
|4 days 8 hours ago||I don't||
USC ass stomping them is good enough for me, other than them getting in the Rose Bowl over us.
|5 days 18 min ago||Orange Bowl here we come||
Our fault though. Crapping our pants against Iowa is on us.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Forget the Rose, unless||
Wiscy wins big, Clemson loses, and the committee loses their minds and vote Wiscy over us in the CFP.
|5 days 13 hours ago||No kidding||
We lost control of the whole situation when we crapped our pants against Iowa. Even with the loss to OSU we'd still be in.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Yes, our QB situation TODAY looks like||
we have plenty of guys. But we don't know what will happen in the off-season. As you say, one or more guys may decide to seek PT somewhere else. I doubt that will effect the 2017 class though. McCaffery is going to be the only take. But it wouldn't rule out (potentially) taking a transfer next spring if the right person were there AND we had an open spot on the roster. Obviously, that'll be up to the coaches to figure out.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Welcome back Alum96!||
Very good takes, as always. I especially agree about Peppers usage in the offense. I wished the coaches just shelved that play by the IU game. It didn't work well against anyone in the latter half of the season. And IMO, it disrupted the flow of the regular offense.
I think a lot of the offensive problems will be solved by upgrading the OL. We haven't had a real Michigan caliber OL for a while now. I also think the RB situation will take care of itself. We're bringing in enough talented guys, at least a couple of them will emerge as thousand yard caliber players. Evans definitely looks like a keeper. I'm excited to see how Walker does when he finally hits the field.
I think Speight has a bigger upside than Navarre. He's more mobile for sure. But, he's going to need to develop a more accurate long passing game. Too many missed opportunities this year.

in the Jelly of the Month Club.
|6 days 10 hours ago||Hot damn!||
Good news to kick off the weekend. Welcome again Mr. Woods!
|6 days 13 hours ago||Eh, I like where our WR recruiting is||
at right now, this decommitment notwithstanding. DPJ, Collins, Black, and Martin are all still very much in play.
|6 days 23 hours ago||Thank you||
The best laugh I've had in months. My eyes were watering.
|1 week 2 hours ago||This is such an amazing change at IU||
in such a short amount of time, I'm still having a hard time getting my mind around it. Wilson was so successful there, so I have to assume that the reason for this change is some pretty bad shit. Shocking.
|1 week 3 hours ago||Very good to see||
I really hope he can play again, whenever that is.
