If that is true, he is crazy or just does not want to play in the NFL. Even if you are on a practice squad, you can sign with anyone 53 man roster. Seems unlikely someone would take him right now if he is hurt.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I can not agree more||
I am sure state will be a good team, but suddenly people are treating them like they are some unstoppable force. There offense was terrible last year. It got better late in the season, but it was still being helped by a great defense. That D is going to take a step back and the offense is probably coming with it or staying even with any improvements hurt by much worse field position and lack of defensive scoring.
I honestly thing Michigan has an even chance of winning at state, and if it was home I would be picking us.
|1 day 11 hours ago||True, but||
The schedule is not loaded with tough teams. Just the tougher teams on the road.
|1 day 17 hours ago||absolutely true||
But that is why I said good indication rather than confirmed evidence. Dixon's performance is certainly not the norm.
|1 day 20 hours ago||No, but||
He kept going out in the first half after getting hurt. Good indication it's just a precaution in a blowout.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I suspect Peppers is fine||
They were already keeping him out of punt returns. Suspect this is just treating a nice thigh bruise. Or a boo boo.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Interesting||
I have never actually worked in the state. So that is not where my perception comes from. I have never worked with another Michigan engineer, but I am surrounded by tech grads, a feeling my friends from Michigan echo. Though this is now to a lesser extent in VA. Though I do work with a Missouri grad who came from a job in Wisconsin who talked about being surrounded by tech grads there as well. Maybe I am just in the wrong field of engineering.
|4 days 4 hours ago||I don't get it||
Why is this surprising? Adidas owns reebok and reebok is much more the hockey brand than Adidas, relatively speaking. Why wouldn't they use reebok for hockey? Would it be as surprising if Nike suddenly used their Jordan brand for a basketball team they sponsored? I am not trying to be a jerk, I just don't get why this is a surprise.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Maybe||
But with declining population in Michigan, they either have to look out of state or lower their standards. I like the choice they made.
|4 days 20 hours ago||As an engineer||
As an engineer I would disagree. It's grad school is okay, but it's undergrads are highly sought after in the job market and they seem to excel once in place. I don't recall them having as many engineering options as Michigan, but what they do, they do well.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Right||
State has never even been close to Tech in terms of incoming freshmen test scores.
|5 days 11 hours ago||doesn't matter||
At this point, I don't think Isaac would see the field either way. All reports indicate he has not seen any time with the starters. At this point it would be a complete waste of a year of eligibility to have him not redshirt this year.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Your reasoning is wrong||
Dave Brandon has been pretty up front about why he scheduled this game, and it's not Michigan arrogance. He point blank said, at that time, that he thought it was a great game because it would get a lot of media coverage. This was obviously a new AD from the business community who thought all publicity is good publicity. He was clearly wrong. He knows he got this one terribly wrong, but once he did it there was no way he could undo it without making it worse.
DB has clearly learned from this scheduling mistake, which was made early on in his tenure. He has not made such mistakes again and his scheduling more recently has been quite good, even if they are games that are far off. So stop trying to prove a point that has been well made to the AD.
|1 week 2 days ago||Uh no||
I don't go to NFL games for this reason. They are not fine. I have never been to an NFL game and not seen multiple fights, and in one case a nice amount of pepper spray used. Let's keep college football about football, not an event to go drink at during the game. This would be the one thing that would probably cause me to give up my season tickets.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||HA||
I remember when not to long ago I practically got negged to Bolivia for suggesting that Countess would not start at CB.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||agreed||
As much as anything this gives the D a huge advantage in this sort of a scrimmage. So we'll have to wait until week two to know just how good or bad things are.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Woah!!!||
optimism about the offensive line! This will not be tolerated! (sarcasm)
Nice to hear something positive up here, I choose to believe you and will ignore any naysayers. It's better for my health this way.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||In fairness||
Many of the top rated recruits were not listed by anyone as being college ready, especially at the tackle position. Noboday was thinking LTT or others would be able to come in and dominate in year two. The only real exception to that was Kalis. So if you want cause for concern it would be Kalis.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Very impressed||
You have to be impressed by Notre Dame. Many schools would encourage such activity. Well done ND. Now let's go crush them!
|2 weeks 3 days ago||He clearly says||
He clearly says York's second chance should be elsewhere.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Great post||
Very well said on York. It was a terrible video, but Hoke is doing the right thing in taking his time and not letting public reaction to a video drive how he treats this young man.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Read it again||
He does not say it makes it okay or that he should even stay at Michigan. He's basically saying take in the whole picture before reacting the way some have.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed||
If you put Mundy on the list, you have to put Mallet on too. Both spent time here, but their real development was elsewhere.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Really||
I don't think the coaches have done that in previous years. We are used to a steady diet of "they have to get tougher up front" and other such things from the coaches. There may have been a lot of optimism in the media, but not from the coaches.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Well||
In fairness I don't remember to many folks being hyped about hockey around Detroit in the 80s when the Red Wings were terrible.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||NCAA win?||
Maybe it's just me, but this seems like a win for the NCAA. It limits payouts to $5k, which is essentially where they were going anyways. If I was the NCAA, I would not appeal this ruling. It is the best case scenario.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||In fairness||
The app state scheduling was a horrific mistake DB made early on in his tenure. I guarantee he regrets and certainly has not made that mistake again. He's moved on to other ones though.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Well||
Apparently they don't "get away with it" since they sold such a small number and now have to resort to single game tickets.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Actually no||
He made those ints as the nickel back in under zone coverage, at least the majority of them. His ints were rarely on balls thrown to the guy he was covering and usually when no one was in his zone allowing him to look back and undercut the pass. Something he does very well. Makes you think he might be the best free safety on the team too.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||What are you going to do||
I posted my honest opinion. I understand he came off an injury. But he the same problems before. He is a good nickel back and that is where he got his interceptions last year. That would be at the same time they were playing Taylor and stripling at corner. You would also all remember the board and Brian wondering why they would then take him off the field in non nickel situations at the end of the year., granted we played mostly nickel at that point. Either way, the coaches see it too.
