His answer to the Funchess question almost seemed like a retort to the criticism Brain and others gave him after the ND about not going downfield to Devin till late in the game, 'were not going to just throw it up to Funchess if it's not there'.

The debacle at cornerback was mostly about the shuffling of position coaches? This is a silly statement. 8 or so weeks of coaching and Countess a senior has regressed to a scrub? This is mostly about changing scheme to something he isn't and never was good at. We will know more about Manning as the season progresses and how the young guys develop.

Why are you focusing on context, the real issue here is Hoke hates Michigan fans, he said it. Just be furious like everyone else.

Payback for Biggie Munn who should've been the replacement for Crisler.
|1 week 2 days ago||You all do realize Harbaugh||
You all do realize Harbaugh will recieve NFL offers in the neighborhood of 12-15 million a year. You'd have to guarantee him 60+ million over 5 years just to get him to listen. The University has deep pockets but not like Jerry Jones.

To be fair Gardner played the whole second half vs. OSU then missed the next 3 months.

I always feel pretty pimp getting out of an Uber black car. I get what you are saying and obviously there is no excuse for putting people's lives at danger, but it seems insecure when you want to show off your status with your car. It's actually pretty pathetic.

I always felt that should be a revenue generator for the site. For a nominal fee, depending on the region (size, proximity, alumni base) you could register your bar as an official, MGoBlog MGoBar. As a former bar owner I would've been very interested in that sort of thing.

Those (Jack) Brederson quotes are a good sign; 'no pressure but as your brother and best friend I'd really like to spend the next four years with you'.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I hope you are related to||
I hope you are related to Lewis only way this makes sense. Backing up a returning starter who is a senior that led the team in tackles and was second in INT's is hardly a slap in the face. Lewis may be more talented but to take a job from a senior who was a solid player isn't going to be easy, nor should it. He may have to earn that on the field, like during games, which he hasn't yet.

is Nickel a new designation for the depth chart this year?

And yet Michigan ran for 152 yards and 451 in the air, I am not quite sure I'd label their DL great.

From twitter/open thread sounded like no push as a group.

And Northwestern scored 9 points in regulation, offense was anemic and the backup averaged 3.8/carry. Makes that game easier. Northwestern went from 17th in rushing with Mark in 2012 to 70th in 2013 without Mark for most of the year.

Tom Brady might not have been elite, but he was close, even if he wasn't considered it at the time. He led the Big Ten in effeciency and completion percentage his senior year. That was before the spread 'n shred took off. The spread really inflated completion percentages and I don't think Borges took advantage of some of the easy stuff that would've helped Devin's numbers.
Devin did lead the B1G in YPA the last couple of years which is a better stat than completion percentage. It's just his highs were so high and the lows so low that it was hard to tell who the real Devin is. He seems to struggle more than others with a good pass rush that doesn't give him time to let routes develop and can't step into his throws. Will see how much of that was scheme this year, we may not see how much of that was the fault of a really bad oline as this one may be worse at protecting him.

Russ Wilson behind a poor Oline at NC State never crack 60% fwiw. I can also name plenty of elite college QB's who have don't have really high 60-70% completion percentages, has a lot to do with the offense. Matt Ryan, Chad Henne, Tom Brady...of the top of my head

I remember Tony Banks killng this freshman in '95 who kept almost making plays. As he got experience he made those plays. Not to compare Stribling to Woodson but give him some time.

To answer your question, no, a once every four years event doesn't make the sport major, ask the Winter Olympics. It is trending in the right direction but I don't think it is there yet.

I think there's certainly some similarity. We don't know the particulars in the Lewan case, but one punch from a large athlete is very dangerous, ask Rudy T. Lewan and Campbell both have some jerky behavior on the field as well, difference is Lewan is 6 years older.

I'd say the opposite. Nik's height enables him to shoot over smaller opponents off the dribble easier than a guy who is 6'2. Eron's height will probably help keep him in college until his eligibility expires.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Who are the opponents of the||
Who are the opponents of the NCAA? The NAIA? I am confused, I may be responding to sarcasm, if the "NCAA" wanted stipends then they'd pass the needed legislation in order to allow it, instead of voting it down. There is a majority of BCS conference members that would pass the stipend in a Super D1 scenario. Even that can be interpreted as appeasement to mounting criticism.

He did that or Kevin Sumlin? Joeckel, Matthews, Evans etc., did they have anything to do with Texas A&M or was it just Johnny?

Gary is also a year younger, which is significant in the NBA draft. Plus his shooting numbers were better as a freshman.

The biggest thing a university can do to make it feel good to be a fan (besides win) is set their players up for future success. Jordan Morgan two engineering degrees feels good to root for, guys like Martavius Odoms and Vincent Smith going back and trying to make a difference in their communities feels good. That stuff is hard to quantify and it is hard to say if Brandon is doing an effective job at it but things like a good player retention rate in football under Hoke and guys moving towards Michigan degrees would seem to be a good sign.
