I don't really like recognizable players switching numbers during their senior years like we've had, but what about a one off? Homecoming is already all about reminding people of the past and I think it could be a cool tradition.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||I don't think Roosevelt and Temple are anyone of great note||
If you look to page 61 of the The Michigensian you mention (LINK) you will see that Ralph Moross Roosevelt and William Franklin Temple were both students in the Engineering department in the 1902 class and members of the football team. Why they bear particular mention is unknown, perhaps they were official team representatives?
Also, Teddy Roosevelt is only known to have visited Ann Arbor/ the University three times (LINK), with this not being one of them.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||It's gonna be ok||
We're still up 4 and have a efficient, low turnover offense. Trust this team and the coaches.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Seconded||
That was the kind of article about Michigan football I have not read for a while. Informed, concise, and without needless drama.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Borges must be gone||
Even after last week, I was sure Michigan would struggle to 8 or 9 wins and the coaches would get another year no matter what we thought. Now, with a negative rushing game at home against a middling Nebraska D? With players that look like they are going through the motions? With the crowd booing our team? With no clear wins left?
Hoke must make staff changes at the end of this year or ride and die with them next.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Not a fan of the offensive staff||
Hoke is loyal to his guys and will not make hasty decisions to placate the fanbase. Youth and inexperience are big factors here and they will be used to prevent any staff changes this year. If there is no improvement next year then you will probably see both Funk and Borges gone.
As for the rest of the year, I think Michigan will still win 2-3 more games. Nebraska and Northwestern seem very winnable still, as does Iowa. Nebraska's defense is terrible and their offense has issues with Martinez injured. Northwestern is in a tailspin. Iowa is Iowa but it is an away game in a hostile atmosphere, so that makes it a toss up. Ohio State is the most complete team we will face outside of Michigan State and we will lose.
8-4 or 9-3 is what I kinda expected over the summer before people started hyping Gardner and saying the offensive line would be better than last year. This is still a young team and may surprise us all next year.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||9-3 overall||
Win out except for Ohio State.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Hoke doesn't care what you think||
Youth and inexperience will be the excuse through this season and the next. If no progress has been made at that point then you may see staff changes.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||No offense||
but if UConn is so great why are you guys in the AAC? Why did the Big Ten and ACC pass you over?
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Leach||
Leach does seem a little harsh this season, but his team is a massive disappointment and he was never the friendliest. I'm gonna chalk this up to a tough transition to an authoritarian coach unless some other evidence is brought forward.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||48-17, Michigan||
Someone may already have this, but I'm at work and can't go through 6 pages of comments.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||At least||
we're not going to lose by double digits.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||It's different||
Rugby players are, in my opinion, better overall atheletes. Everyone can run and hit and do it for long periods with no breaks. In football, you have guys who are stronger or faster but not often both and lack endurance.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||they should try||
an option play
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Can LSU do it?||
Can they join the field goal party?
|3 years 28 weeks ago||for real||
This may be the worst game of the year for me, and I watched Louiseville take on Kentucky.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Second strike||
You would think they would want to avoid media fallout from transfers, like what happened after the Aaron Douglas affair.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||lol||
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Am I the only one having||
Am I the only one having problems with the direct download? From the first week, I can only get about 80-90% of the file; like now I'm only getting 38.7 megs of the 58.4 my browser is showing. I've tried IE, firefox and chrome all with the same results.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Vandy South Carolina||
There was an interception called for SC when it was clearly simultaneous possession and should have been vandy ball. They reviewed it and confirmed the call on the field. Drove my vandy fiancee mad.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||49-6||
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Still just a rumor||
But I'm marking the time, just in case we have to fill out a death report for the Big 12ish

|3 years 47 weeks ago||Craig James||
First it was the rumor that Craig James killed 5 hookers at SMU, now it's 11? Let's put these heinous rumors to bed, like the bed Craig James is said to have used prior to killing 5 hookers at SMU. That did not happen and Craig James is totally innocent of killing 5 hookers while at SMU.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||To Quote Jerry Hinnen from CBSSports.com||
"It's not possible for Michigan to earn "revenge" against the Mountaineers. The former is one of the most storied programs in college football history. The latter is an FCS program (a good one, mind) that, if they're lucky, might land in Conference USA the next few seasons. 30 Michigan wins can't equal the impact of one of Appalachian State's, much less the single one they'll likely earn in 2012. To suggest the Wolverines can "even the score" with Appalachian State is to also suggest the two programs are somehow equals, peers."
|3 years 48 weeks ago||This is like the episode of South Park||
where the Red Wings demolish a pee wee team and go on to celebrate to We Are the Champions. Except that the pee wee team actually beat the Red Wings 7 years ago and everyone will be constantly reminded of this fact.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Not that it is easy||
but it probably will not kill you. As people reference below, muslims not at Fordson go through two-a-days with no food or water regularly. Heck, last year Husain Abdullah became a starter for the Vikings after fasting through training camp!
Again, not saying it is easy (I'm not sure I could sit at a desk all day without something) but it is something that can be worked through.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||According to Magnus||
at http://touchthebanner.blogspot.com/2011/01/eligibility-count-for-2011.html, we are currently at 24 for next year (75 players currently on scholorship and 14 player with only this year of eligibility remaining).
Someone correct me if I am not understanding this correctly.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Scoreless tie||
and stadium collapse.
Let me elaborate on the /s
1. I don't really want a stadium collapse.
2. I know games can no longer end in a tie, but I think they would make an exception if the stadium collapsed.
3. I don't really care who wins.

Don't forget about the the one, the only, the truly incomparable Leland Stanford, Junior University Marching Band!
