An All-American Senior who says things like, “They’re way better than me at that age – they might be better than me now,”
Humble and classy in addition to being a ridiculously good football player. I love that guy
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Partly agree -||
But Warde should have a much better sense of fan sentiment. That's a huge miss to assume that people would be willing to deal with the absolute shittiness that he just threw onto our schedule.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Definitely Brandon's fault...||
But this is equally on Warde. Tough to understand why you would agree to this as the current AD.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Eh||
I don't particularly care one way or the other, though I'm not sure what he's upset about with Saban. I watched the video and Saban was asked about Harbaugh, so he responded using his name. He didn't really call him out or anything. But whatever, it's the off-season and we need CONTENT
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Awesome||
Thanks for the clarification!
|12 weeks 5 days ago||noob question||
If Michigan wins and advances to the World Series, is that a final four? Eight? What happens from here (a few three-game series, single elimination, etc.)?
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Yup||
I think losing Glasgow was a huge blow. We didn't have him for either of the power spread teams we played (Indiana, OSU), and both ran roughshod over us. It's possible that we would have struggled just as much with him, but I doubt it. I think having him and Mone both back to plug up the middle and disrupt the interior of the OL will be a huge boon for us. Of course, a lockdown corner, some athletic rush DEs and Peppers roaming will likely be just as impactful.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Welp||
I was wrong. Stuff happened. Some thoughts:
1. Jon looks alive and doesn't appear to be blue-eyed or anything. Looks like e just got straight revived here
2. Bran is obviously setting up for TOJ reveal, and previews for next episode show that happening. Dropping all the Jon Snow bombs real quick
3. Euron isn't as crazy/insane as I was expecting, but let's see what happens with the Kingsmoot. Also, I guess Asha/Yara is taking the place of Victarion here?
4. The giant smashing the dude against the wall of Castle Black was awesome
|16 weeks 5 days ago||My theory||
I think that this will largely be another set-up episode in most storylines, and I think episde 3 is where all hell will break loose and we will start to see large plot movements at the Wall, at Winterfell, with Dany, etc.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||"Wanting to be great"||
Honestly, it's just another banal sports cliche in the line of, "that team just wanted it more". Following this line of logic, at one point Harbaugh made his players realize, "oh we want to be great!". That's crazy. College athletes almost to a number are insanely competitive, work super hard at their craft, and have committed large chunks of their lives to do so. To think that guys like Jehu Chesson, Jake Butt and Jourdan Lewis simply didn't care enough to be great is a ridiculous simplification.
I think a much more honest interpretation is that Harbaugh instituted a system that made players realize how much more was required of them in order to be successful on the field and more importantly, exactly how to get there. He's a great coach, and great coaches create really clear roadmaps to success. Some players decide it's too much work, but most buy-in and see results. That's a lot different than convincing them that they should "want to be great".

That it sets her up to take control of the entire Dothraki and unite the different Khalasars. She'll be in the heart of the Dothraki and probably Drogon will show up, at which point I am guessing the Dothraki will follow her. Maybe just to Mereen, or maybe to Westeros?
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Actually it doesn't make||
Actually it doesn't make sense. They were clearly not only left with two pro-ban options, as many conferences voted for no ban at all. It literally makes no sense. And I would be very, very skeptical about any nonsense around how he 100% knew exactly how everyone would vote, particularly since if he voted the way he should, only one other small conference would need to flip for the bill to fail.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Hurst, Gary, Mone should||
Hurst, Gary, Mone should provide a good DL foundation. I expect 2-3 solid Lb contributors from 2016 will remain, so we should be ok there as well. We will likely lose almost everyone in our secondary, but I expect a few guys to step up in 2016, at least in spot duty (kinnel, long, Hudson, etc). It'll be a bit rough, but we will also have a lot of guys who are highly skilled
|19 weeks 1 day ago||It's not a rumor||
Sam Webb confirmed it on Scout. Pretty insane
|20 weeks 6 days ago||holy poop||
Wow...Michigan has already picked up two of the top kids in Ohio for the 2018 class, after not having anyone in Ohio in their most recent class. That's insane and awesome...

But why male models?
|25 weeks 1 day ago||BAH GAWD||
BAH GAWD THAT MAN HAS A FAMILY!
Dang, nice tweet. Harbaugh doesn't even need the subtweet
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Various ones:||
1. Hardcore History: probably the bes podcast I've ever listened to. If you are even a casual history fan, I'd recommend starting the series "Blueprint for Armageddon", which covers WWI. It is fascinating and I have yet to find a person who has listened to it and did not thoroughly enjoy it
2. A16Z: If you're into tech, this is a pretty good one that is hosted by Andreesen Horowitz. It can sometimes be a bit too detailed/wonky, but generally strong guests.
3. Planet Money: Just a good conversation and discussion around various financial topics in an approachable way.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||Nope||
The guy that just got hired is Jimmy Dougherty I believe, who came from San Jose St.
|29 weeks 2 hours ago||This is the Mike and Mike interview||
|29 weeks 1 day ago||ohhh yeahh||
|30 weeks 5 hours ago||Agree||
I was just looking over his record the other day and was shocked by how pedestrian it was:
3 x 8-5
1 x 9-4
1 x 10-3
1 x 12-1
That's certainly not bad, but it's far from elite, especially when you consider that the 12-1 year was incredibly lucky with many close calls, and the recent 10-3 year ended with a pretty good thumping by Ohio State.
I think Notre Dame will be strong, but not elite, under Kelly. That's certainly an upgrade from previous coaches, but I will be shocked if he takes them to the promised land ever under his tenure.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||THIS IS GOOD NEWS||
I ENJOY GOOD NEWS!
|30 weeks 1 day ago||That's...weird||
I thought Harbaugh was willing to take 2 more TEs in this class. Either we have filled up and he only wants one or he already thinks he has 2? I can't imagine Allen is picking Iowa St over Michigan or Nebraska without a bit of a nudge in that direction.
Hopefully that means we have locked down Eubanks and Asiasi.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Said this before...||
But lot of insiders have said that Michigan staff had McDoom as their #1 receiver on their board long before he committed to Oregon. The fact that they have so many WRs and Fisch was still actively recruiting him the last few months supports that. He will be really good at Michigan
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Meh||
It was either Bama or Clemson, neither make you happy as a Michigan fan. FWIW, Sam Webb has said in the past that he sees Clemson as the only real potential threat to Michigan, so I would have preferred Bama personally. That said, Gary has strengthened his relationship with Michigan significantly the last few weeks with another trip and Dwumfour's commitment.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||hmmm||
Something tells me it's an extremely bad idea to sit around and discuss which current recruits may or may not end up in Michigan's class.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||Reasons||
Reasons why Penn State feels confident:
1. He has been a long-time PSU lean
2. He took his final official visit there and announced he will commit three days after
Reasons why Michigan feels confident:
1. Harbaugh > Franklin
2. Some rumblings that Hudson is a silent from his visit to Ann Arbor last weekend
At this point, it's tough not to feel confident with Harbaugh against Franklin.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||I humbly accept||
that I was beaten. Fair and honest competition
|31 weeks 1 day ago||Good luck to him!||
Not sure of the details of this decommit, but I'm sure he'll land on his feet and find a good landing spot!
