|5 days 8 hours ago||GR - Is a great place||
I grew up in SE Michigan but ended up in Grand Rapids a few years after graduating from UM for job related reasons. And I love it here. The people are generally much friendly here then in SE Michigan (and most places around the country) and it is a fantastic place to raise a family. The area has so much going for it with the thriving downtown, Art Prize, close proximity to Lake Michigan, "Beer City, USA", etc. Plus its only 2 hours from AA, 3 hours from downtown Chicago, and 2.5 hours to Traverse City.
Before I moved here I would have thought I'd jump at the chance to move back to SE Michigan. But now that I'm here, I quickly turn those offers down. I couldn't be happier with where I live.
I don't know what you and your wife think of cold weather and snow, but personally I would much rather have Michigan winters than Texas or Arizona summers.
Best of luck in your descision.

Also has 10points. First thunder rookie to ever have a double double in the first half of a game.

Dawkins really came on at the end of the year and has a fantastic stroke. 8 threes! Who had the better freshman year Dawkins or Stauskas? Stauskas had a much better supporting cast to take the pressure off of him and certainly didn't need him to shoot as much as Michigan needed Dawkins this year. Both are lethal shooters. Dawkins better defensively, Stauskas better on assists. What's your thoughts?

Three OL from Traverse City West on the list. Must be fun to be a running back on that team.

I don't think fumble recoveries should be decided based on who comes out of the bottom of the pile with the ball. First guy the jumps on the ball and seems to have control of it should be the determining factor. If he's on the ground is is down.

I didn't think American Hustle was any special.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||This sucks||
I feel badly for all the teams that got knocked out of the tournament by a team that cheated. These cheaters hurt the dreams of kids that played on teams that followed the rules.

I highly doubt he would transfer to Michigan given the Big Ten transfer rules. Probably wore the shirt just to get back at OSU for the way they treated him.

My son was deferred in Dec as well for CoE. Did your son do anything to help the process like send a follow up letter or semester grades?
|9 weeks 1 day ago||With the exception of Doyle,||
With the exception of Doyle, Michigan's roster doesn't have anyone that can handle teams that have tall, beefy centers. Doyle and Wilson are too skinny. And from what I've see, the same is true for Teske. They're tall but they don't have bulk. Another big body is needed for defensive purposes.

As a kid growing up in Ann Arbor I was shocked and in total awe when one Sunday morning Rob Lytle show up at my church just to talk to my youth group. He was as nice as could be. Total class and a true Michigan legend.

I love college football, but don't like the part where it seems to be all about football and little about college. This article is certainly not a great reflection on Anderson if he thought Wisconsin's standards were too tough. Sounds like him and Cardale would get along great.

The referees touch the ball that is being used on every single play of the game. If there was something significantly different about the balls that the Patriots used versus the balls that the Colts used (or the balls every other NFL team use) it seems like the referees would have noticed and done something about it right then and there.

I'm old enough to remember Whiskey the dog performing at halftime. I was a kid back then and you could walk up to the stadium on game day and buy a student ticket for $1.00. Yes you read that right - $1.00. Even though they were student tickets the box office would sell them to anyone. My grandmother even went with us a few times and would buy and use student tickets. Those were the days.

When ever I see DJ Durkin, I always think of the dish known as turduckin (chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey) Wish I could get that image out of my head.

Jones has to be the best third string WB in the nation. The guy can play.

jackson is a fixture at Michigan. No surprise if stays with UM in some capacity but I doubt he will be a coach.

There were two guys from Hoke's staff that I hoped that they would keep - Mattison and Manning. Looks like that might happen.

|18 weeks 1 day ago||Agree||
I have big concerns regarding the QB position next year - no matter who the coach is. I'm also not impressed with the ability of the WRs to get open. Hard to win games if you don't have a decent passing game.
|19 weeks 23 hours ago||Also Mini Band Day||
For you old timers that remember Band Day back in the 70's, this Saturday's game against Maryland will be kind of a mini Band Day. Instead of inviting entire high school bands from around the area like they did in the 70's, they have invited a limited number of band members from various high schools in the region. These high schoolers will perform with the Michigan Marching Band during halftime and post game.
