Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Vandy has some pretty dynamic runners. Throwing is not so hot, so that bodes well for us. Vandy tore up Florida on the ground (yes I know everyone tore up Florida). Would prefer the Gator Bowl over BWW if nothing else but for recruiting sake.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Agree||
During Ohio's last drive, watching them destroy us with their run, there was no way we would have beat them in OT. They would have run us into the ground.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Wow.||
"When my team fails, I have failed.
When my team succeeds, I have done my job.
When my teams excels, I have done my job well."
Talk about selling our your players.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Yep||
Just made my day. Sent it to all my UF co-workers.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Meh||
My wife reminded me about our Appy State loss when I read this title. On the bright side of things, we did beat Florida and Heisman winning Friar Tebow that year. At least there was some redemtion for us. This game was truly the only thing making me happy about our loss today (Yes, I live in Gainesville).

I was guilty of this in 2005.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Braylon wins hands down||
I think if you have 3 - 1,000 yard seasons and are in the top 10 in each of those years, you win the "Best Receiver in Michigan History" award.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Braylon||
Feel free to correct me, but didn't Braylon also have a freshman QB throwing to him? I remember that year wouldn't have been nearly as good if Braylon hadn't saved us by grabbing almost everything thrown to him.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Da'Shawn's Visit Update||
Well, actually I have no idea how he enjoyed it. But after 5 football seasons in Gainesville, this was my first game. So if he saw what I saw, Florida dropped flat out.
This was a game that should have been a 34-10 score (luckily at 34-17 on a lucky pass reflected off the foot of the DB that blocked it). I especially liked how the crowd was yelling at the field throughout the game, worse after halftime. Begging for Muschamp to be fired. Defense was horrible, offense was actually not as bad as it seemed (offensive line was slightly worse than ours). Horrible penalties on both sides of the ball. The only bright side to this for Hand would be offering him IMMEDIATE playing time.
Maybe it was that the stadium was only about 90% full. Maybe it was how teh crowd started leaving at the end of the 3rd quarter. Maybe it was how the stadium was about 50% full with 10 minutes left in the game. And for a homecoming game, the atmosphere was terrible. Should be much more of a Michigan vs Bama battle. I don't see how any of the recruits could have enjoyed that game.
And for all those complaining about ticket prices at Michigan, suffer through it. Prices may be cheaper at the advertising schools, but the commercials, the crap on the billboards and during breaks. The players (surprisingly UF only) kept watching the commercials and had no focus at all.
But I thoroughly enjoyed the game.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Yep||
Weather wasn't that great. Pretty hot throughout the game.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Nope||
Next week they go to South Carolina, then a chump win, then FSU. They would have to beat either SC or FSU and I don't see either of those scenerios happening.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||No Sacks||
I'm not sure about the stats line, but I remember (I think the Penn State Game) in the game where he was hurt he looked tired/slow and almost gave up blocking/ got beat letting Gardner get sacked.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||No||
Having him listed as a tight end creates really tough matchups. And occasionally last week happens.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||I can't believe||
they chose Willingham over Holtz? He would have been an awesome and non-biased ex-coach to pick for that committee. Hell, we'd be watching ND lose national championships every year if he would have been selected.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Offensively||
Especially seeing his stats every week, I think he's the closest player to being able to play both ways we've recruited in a long time. He could definitely play RB or WR. Seeing plays like this though make me more excited than anything, backing up all that hype. A truly destructive DB.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Pretty sure||
this is exactly what I said above. Just in a less so ///'ing manner.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Hmmm...||
Seems pretty comparable to the MSU vs ND game and ND has already lost on gameday. So it fits.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Not really a slot type guy||
Not like Amendola or Welker who are both slot type guys. More "like" Steve Smith of the Panthers. He's definitely shining now. Again, some players will produce better under different circumstances and this current one is great for Gallon. How many players didn't really cut it at Michigan, leave for a year or two and then get drafted? I think our recent Mr. Cox is a great example.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Hmmmm.....||
Somebody obviously didn't get a decent ticket to UTL II and is trying to buy their way to a good seat.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Show them and they'll come||
If recruits know they have a chance to play year one, they will be more likely to come. Absolutely let them play. We have been doing such a great job at recruiting, it'll only help recruiting to allow them to play.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Absolutely||
Get him ready to play. Even if he is a backup for this year and next, it'll only help him when he takes over. If he was the best 2nd, we need him ready and junk time will give him enough experience.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||The article||
makes it appear that for the 5 years he played, he will be ineligible to play for 5 years. One year for each year played in an organized event.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||There are ex-marines||
I used to frequently call my brother-in-law an ex-marine when he went from a 6'0" chiseled machine to a 300 pound whale getting winded while walking to the mailbox. Apparently enough people pissed him off enough so that he is back to 215 and running 15Ks.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Say What?||
Don't be looking down on getting a girl knocking up to lock her up. Some just aren't as manly as the mighty Magnus. It's called thinking outside the box for the truly pathetic.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Kovac's stats||
I didn't watch the game, but Kovacs stats put him as 7th for the night on tackles (3, 2 solo). Could have been junk time though.
At least he's living his dream. And based on all the pictures I've seen (as noted above), he's loving it.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Excellent||
Very glad to see the women's program recruiting well. Excellent addition.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||I agree||
At least grad school was in-state.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Surprising.||
As a vet, I understand this. The military tells you to either choose a state tax-free residence or as in the case of overseas, he changed his residence to not have to pay state taxes. A benefit for most. For instance, coming from Alabama, I had the right to choose Florida or Texas for my state of residence which has no state taxes. The down side, if I wanted to go to a school outside the state of Florida/Texas, I am now an out of state student. Luckily, I was warned about this before I changed my residence. (Un)fortunately, I chose Michigan so I was still an out-of-state student. Go blue. And suck up the huge student loans like the rest of us.
Plus, I'm pretty sure my military record help me get into UM in the first place. I mean, I came from Alabama after all.

I used to treat soldiers at Fort Benning. Nice jump school injury, their leg gets caught up in the cord. ACL, PCL, MCL, and med/lat meniscus. That was a sucky injury. Basically ended their careers.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Yum||
Dead people inside me........... not great to think about, but it's not adding more trauma to you. Why weaken yourself if you don't have to.
