Except that the team held a practice Sunday night, according to Hoke at his press conference. And yet somehow the topic of his potentially starting quarterback being diagnosed with a concussion earlier that day never came up.
|17 hours 25 min ago||The press release says they||
The press release says they diagnosed him with a concussion on Sunday, but nobody bothered to tell Hoke until after his press conference on Monday.

Either Hoke is six minutes late or this is a beautiful metaphorical statement.

"But instead, I will get to read about how every little thing Brady Hoke does is wrong and he deserves to be fired for it, and the reality is: if Michigan were 5-0 right now no one would care."
If Brady Hoke were a good coach, you wouldn't be saying he's a bad coach may be one of the hottest takes I've ever read. Just how close is Michigan to being 5-0 this year?

They got blown out by a shit program that played a confused moose at quarterback because Michigan's coach insisted on playing a quarterback that was unqualified to start, and near unconscious by the fourth quarter. There's your recap of the game.

The line probably moved like that because Hoke acknowledged Morris was injured. Huge advantage for Rutgers heading into the week.

.....or like 8 million people still watch it, but whatever.
Or to put it in different terms, saying 500 people watch World News Tonight is mathematically equivalent to saying 497 people watched Florida State/Clemson last week.

Maybe Peppers was just trying to help his coach out, since Peppers has more experience as a defensive back than Manning does.

Just so long as there isn't three 'x's because there is nothing sexy about Minnesota's offense.

It's never a great sign when 'Reminds me of Hitler" barely cracks the top 20 on the list of complaints.

I think that's a transcription error. It should say Hoke thinks job security is the biggest issue.

The contest is only for teams that won the national title, and there was only one entrant allowed per school, which is why most of those teams aren't in the bracket.

"1 Hebrew National Kosher Jumbo Hot Dog; made locally in Quincy, Michigan -"
It's like a Russian nesting doll of branding.
Also, not sure how discouting tickets you couldn't sell counts as a "good deed".

How many points would it have cost them if they chose to trade off some of that "complexity"?
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||The hurry-up on third and||
The hurry-up on third and short is particularly infuriating because it's recognition that the principles of tempo work--namely not allowing the defense time to get set up--combined with an unwillingness to carry those principles over to any other situation where they could yield similar success.

It's not exactly new. Whenever they tweet a score during a game, it's always "The score, presented by Some Bank, is MIchigan 37 Opponent 0" or whatever, even though the bank rarely contributes to the actual score.

Dave Brandon is always on the cutting edge of copying great marketing ideas that are just past their expiration date. He must have heard about the Ice Bucket Challenge down at Pretty Much Arby's.

I had heard from somebody working in the athletic department that the Celtics were interested in Beilein when they hired Brad Stephens, but that Beilein turned them down.

The deal with Michigan Tech was two series in Ann Arbor for one in Houghton, which isn't that grand of a gesture on Michigan's part.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||#2 and #3 on that forwards||
#2 and #3 on that forwards list will be linemates with Pastujov this year, and worth keeping an eye on as names down the road, as well. Nick Boka's younger brother wasn't at this camp, but will likely be a target at some point too.
On defense, Gildon is the big target, but odds of him playing for Michigan or any NCAA school are pretty low. Chris Trouba and Tommy Miller are two local names to watch.
