|1 week 1 day ago||Although I only joined the||
Although I only joined the board last year, I'd been lurking for 5-6 years. My main apprehension in joining the fracas was how negative folks are about the program. Granted, we haven't had much to be optimistic about.
Despite the OL, team 135 is probably the closest to "Michigan Football" that we're gonna experience since 2006. A Senior QB, that will give eveything he's got including his foot. Loads of talent at the skill positions, albeit unproven. The defense also has as much talent and depth than it's had in the last decade easily. I have no doubt the D will be elite by December.
Every year a team that noone is expecting rises from the ashes and puts everything together for a magical season. Does anyone remember '96? Yeah, you probably don't because it sucked! Noone expected a 5th year senior who hadn't done much with a marginal receiving corp and no stand out running back to run the table. If the team believes, they can make it happen. The defense made up for any deficiencies we had on offense that year.
I believe the team will go 10-2 in the regular season. There could easily be a 2 game variance there, so 8-4 or 12-0 is also in the realm of possibility. These guys are gonna put it together sooner or later, why not this year?

Try Mahdi Rom, it's excellent! It's AOSP and feature packed. It has most of the Slim, CM (Theme engine), and cherry picks from most of the popular roms. It's stable, gets updated about once every 1-2 weeks and the developer is a real cool guy. I used to flash my N5 with everything under the sun until I started using it, it's kinda cured my flashing cumpulsion.

If Isaac is actually eligible this year I guess that places Ross #4 at slot as opposed to #6 at RB. Better chance to see the field and get some playing time outside of ST. Great attitude, he'll be successful no matter what.

Nice, hope he's able to invoke memories of another #32 at RB, what was his name A-Train?

I'm a phone junkie. I've always had a least one Android phone since the original G1. There are too many great Android apps to list but I'd suggest any enthusiast or someone just looking for highly recommeded apps check out the weekly App Appreciation thread over on Reddit. Always some excellent suggetions depending on what you're looking for.

It's a giant pen holder no? I perfectly fine with Clark's assertions if they back it up on the field. The team has to believe it's capable of competing with the best in the nation to actualize their goals.

I'd be interested to know which tech they are using as well. I would guess they are using some functionality from Adidas's MiCoach. FIFA used a visual tracking system for the past few Workd Cups. There is an informative post below if anyone is interested in the different techs.

Watching this year's mgovideos and seeing the omg shirtless, twitter etc, pics. The team overall is Ginormous! compared to when Hoke stepped on campus 4 years ago. Along with recruiting Wellman is definitely earning his paycheck.

He's like Mikhail Baryhsnikov with more speed.

If the running game opens up! This offense could be lights out, so much potential! Haters are sleeping! Devin has shown that he can make plays. His treat of running, was the running game last year. If we have any semblance of improvement from the line, I'm with Nuss,10-2 or beyond!

Considering his frame I would expect him to fill out at 185 tops during his Michigan career (about the same as Manningham). His footwork is impeccable and can only get better against D1 talent and getting coached up from Hecklinski. He's a star in the making, forget the hype.

Michigan isn't the only team with a "living legends" jersey traditon. LSU's #18 immediately comes to mind and I'm sure that other teams have similar traditions. Every team retires #'s and I personally like the Legends program. It connects the new players with the great leaders of the past.
Stop HATIN' If the players are inspired by it, does it really matter what we think?

If I remember correctly the 97 team didn't allow a team to score in the 4th quarter for the entire regular season. That D was Tremendous!

Urban is one of those people who just have no doubt! that his poop smells like roses.

Don't you think it's weird that noone ever mentions Bellomy? I've seen him in some of the Mgovideos and spring ball, but I don't think I've heard his name brought up once by the coaches or players since he got hurt. He was one of Borges's only recruits. Kinda feel bad for him, even if it's not at UM I'd like to see him get a chance to redeem himself and an opportunity to compete.

I think Bolden may be ready to really shine, whether he supplants Morgan or not, or is just on the precipice to do so is only good for the team. Can't believe that he's a Junior already, but he was a really highly regarded 4* out of Colerain and has steadily progressed. Tackles tallying: 31FR - 54SO - to ? as a Junior, he could easily match Morgan's production as a fulltime starter and appears to just have more intangibles. With only a year of eligibility left this may be his breakout year.

Okay, didn't catch that but thanks. Not that it matters but would've liked to see him get the recognition along with the other standouts pre-season.

There are so many *fans who discount how instrumental these two have been in our lowest moments. It's like they are shamed for being good on bad teams.
