“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

Man, this season can't start fast enough for me!
|3 hours 28 min ago||Yes sir!||
Good stuff! He would make a great addition if he signs in Feb.
|6 hours 23 min ago||Thanks for the schedule||
Can't wait to hear some football talk!
|7 hours 56 min ago||Yes!||
B!G media days start today! Live on BTN starting at 10:30 EST. Freshmen report Saturday and upper classmen Sunday. Tired of all the June negativity, the arrests, suspensions etc throughout CFB. Time to watch Michigan football and more CFB!
|8 hours 7 min ago||Very true||
I just prefer DB ove Bill. I like the direction of the Athletic Dept.
|9 hours 1 min ago||Here's a critical key to watch||
Hoke is in year 4 of 5. We have not heard anything about an extension to his contract. If DB and the administration was completely confident they would be talking about a contract extension to provide security and that translates into recruiting kids for the future. Recruits want to know if the coach will be there long term. I think DB is taking a wait and see approach this year. My sense is that 7-6 will be unacceptable. What the magic number is for Hoke is up to the decision makers.
|9 hours 11 min ago||Tend to agree, but....||
the major difference was the almighty dollar. If the donors are not "all-in" and you have some portion of the Alumni and fan base against him he was not going to be afforded the same opportunity. The general feeling around the program was described as disconnected, divided, and struggling. Oh well, we have beaten that horse to death. I am moving forward.
|9 hours 30 min ago||Pretty good piece...||
Wojo hit all the hot topics. I had a chance to personally ask DB about a couple of these topics myself this summer and he gave the exact same answers. As a matter of fact, he had some very strong opinions for the B1G with regard to playing at East Lansing two years in a row. He does a very good job of raising money for all of our facility upgrades. Do I agree with everything? No, but I am very happy to have him over Bill Martin. CFB is changing and we need to adapt.

Good little mashup that will stick with you. https://soundcloud.com/djearworm/dj-earworm-hands-only-cpr-mashup
|6 days 6 hours ago||And the Memphis QB......||
These guys have some serious talent. Somehow, I can't carry a tune. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiVwDnUHcYc
|6 days 7 hours ago||Here's one for you....||
Sam Hunt was the QB at Middle Tenn ST & UAB. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA_e2OK9Nf8
|6 days 20 hours ago||He is announcing Dec 13||
Doesn't look good for us right now.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think we win 8||
That said, we could easily go 10-3 or 7-6. There are so many unkowns this year. If we believe the star ratings the last few years in recruiting we should be okay. It's time for Hoke to show us something. Win in East Lansing! Win at ND! Blow out the App St's and Miami O's of the world at home and set the tone for the future!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I was very intrigued by your response......||
Plans have already been submitted and approved for expanding the south end zone. Estimates are in the 12K seat range. It will connect the east side club seats to the west side chairbacks. Of course the demand, funding, and approval to start from the Regents hasn't happened yet as we all know. However, the idea of making the north side a restaurant/bar area is pretty cool. I know a lot of people complain about changes to the Big House, but you can't tell me they didn't do a godd job with the addition of the upper sections. The sound is getting louder and it looks great!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Hmmmm||
I guess the beer and wine will make up for the bad football.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I will skip that one too||
I went to the Alabama game. Great venue. Been there done that. Oh, and it was like 811 degrees that day in the shade tailgating! I would also prefer a new venue or just schedule a damn home and home with anyone like LSU, Tenn, FSU or Texas. People will go to those games!
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Loving this World Cup||
Disclaimer: I am not an avid soccer fan. I love American college football and soccer will never change that. However, I thoroughly enjoy watching the World Cup and the international stage. I read up on it as much as I can. What CONCACAF has done during this cup run is truly amazing. I am thrilled some of the giants are being knocked out. Costa Rica has to be the Cinderella right now. I am hoping the U.S. And Mexico advance to the knockout rounds and get a win or two. Otherwise my rooting interest will fade a little and it will be a little less fun to watch. Yet, I will still watch it as it is a great tournament. Bottom line, it fills some of the gap before CFB starts. Is it Aug 31 yet?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Which one?||
Was it the donor survey?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Michigan sold their allotment already||
You will have to find them on the secondary market.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Plenty of tix in Sect's 5,17, 24 etc rows 11-64||
Many open seats and rows still open. Bad year for ticket sales. I just checked my MGoBlue account and I can still buy in those sections/rows.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||See below...||
Football digital community: Twitter, Facebook, MGOBLE ALERTS, email alerts etc.
Yes, I talked to an Athletic Development Office Rep just a few days ago. There are plenty of tickets available for PSU and Maryland.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Victory!!!||
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Possible offers.....||
Thornton, Towns, Leaf, Teske, Battle, Murray, Winston, Goodin. Some others to watch: Guy, Gordon, Moyer, & Benson.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||ND Game is way too expensive.||
I know they have a crazed fan base, but no way would I would pay that when I can watch it at home and not endure the long TV timeouts.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I am surprised by the PSU spread!||
I think we win in a close game against PSU. No way Sparty beats us again either.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I honestly don't get the bashing||
Has there been some mistakes. Absolutely, but he is killing it where it counts most. The App St game, yep hate it! However, future games with Ark, Ore St, BYU, Va Tech, UCLA far outweighs that one.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I get it||
Look, change is coming and I am just as happy to see the slow pace of change that we have seen. We need to keep up in the CFB arms race. If you want to keep up with the Alabama's and Oregon's and Texas' of the world we must adapt.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||The revenue stream supports the cost||
Also, those that think Brandon had anything to do with playing at MSU twice is dead wrong. I know for a fact that the B1G scheduled every B1G conference game without any influence from any university. There was no vote and zero AD input from any conference member. You need to place the blame where it really should be. Squarely on the shoulders of Jim Delaney!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Not me....||
Dave Brandon is the ultimate fund raiser and he is doing just that. The Athletic Dept is in great financial shape due to his efforts. The facilities are first class and under going further change. Michigan will have world class facilities under his watch.
