As one who watched many of his games live while he was in high school I can tell you the kid had the goods. However, he was injured in his jr. year while being rated the no.1 cb for the next class. Due to injury, they thought he'd be playing mostly wr - truth is he played both his sr. yr - and they immediately moved him up to no.1 receiver in the nation. Now what kind of fucking logic dictates that from supposed experts? BTW, he was on an alway run oriented Big Red football squad. The last time they had what was a perceived passing game Earl Morrall was pulling the trigger for the squad in the 50s.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||would not lend much credence to former staff||
and their decision making ability on who should play and who should not. It was clear by the the fifth game last season that Brady was completely lost. Who knows who made the decision on qb? Was it BH or Nuss? The man was simply in wayyyyyyyyyyyy over his head and if his indecision and questionable actions were clear to someone watching on t.v., I imagine the entire staff, team and anyone associated with that mess was shaking their heads half the time at anything the man did.

However, some people simply do not have the discipline to put this money away weekly or bi-weekly, whichever way they get paid. And with the interest banks are giving I'm not certain it's such a bad idea. It will buy them a nice vacation for the family. I still prefer the no lend to the gov't situation but that's me.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Yes, he was very terretorial||
When Messner visited CA, UCLA I believe, he was determined to go there. He no more than got back to Michigan, not realizing Bo had already learned of his "transgression" and that's what he thought of Michigan kids leaving state. He told Mark, "You are not going to California. You are staying here, you are playing for Michigan and that is the end of this discussion." We all know where Mark ended up. These kids simply had a very, very difficult time looking him in the eye and saying NO when push came to shove. Yet they all were so thankful that Bo convinced them to make the correct decision in the end.

And to take credit into developint Tom is absurd. How many downs you think that fat ass tub-of-lard ever played other than one hand touch w/in five yards of the ball carrier?
|6 weeks 3 hours ago||Don't waste my fucking time ever again||
nfm, now grow the fuck up. And as an aside, your sense of humor blows as much as you.
|6 weeks 18 hours ago||Conveniently forgotten is||
the fact if not for two of the strangest catches, almost three w/Kearse's, Tom would have 6 fucking rings. Who are these idiots?
|7 weeks 2 hours ago||That's on Tom then||
There are not many BIG fans or coaches that aren't aware that OSU is attempting to duplicate the practices of the SEC. They are considered SEC North by many, and in some cases this makes them attractive. For a high school coach from the great state of MI and an alumnus from same I'd be very concerned with the young men I sent there.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I agree w/second poster||
and no matter how much thought given to original post will never buy the fact that Petey did not blow this.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||No Great Mystery||
Called life. He fucked up his family by pillowing every ho he could get his hands on and was about to sign with viagra before his game left him completely. Doesn't matter how famous or rich, you lose people you love and priorities become very clear. Second chances, not so much.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I might agree as to the decades||
with the possible exception of U2 or one of the Seattle bands in the 80s. However, as far as staying power, I'd say the Stones and Aerosmith are still solid plays on every jukebox in every gin joint around the world. I know. I've been to lots of them.
On a side note, Frankie Valley(ie?) and the four seasons in the early 70s had sold more than anyone, including both Elvis, Beatles and BeeGees. The BeeGees were solid in the late 60s but their disco shit was just that.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Equally important as to instate recruiting||
is having the fans on your side as well. UM, and you are correct, has always recruited nationally as well as anyone w/the possible exception being ND. However, other than securing the top level talent in MI you are also promoting good will toward HS coaches and fans throughout the state that will result in the door always being open for UM and possibly turning both coaches and fans toward UM as opposed to Spartyville. Coaches are the main reason because when they come up with a Long or Wheatley, or even a Cousins it is nice to have said coach leaning in the recruits ear with a favorable light toward AA.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Schnellenberger built Miami||
not fucking Sticky Hair. He took the ez way out after getttin his ass handed to him by OU every fucking year at OSU, then going to Miami where the table had already been set. What a fucking hypocrite.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||If they would have played Bama and FSU||
they wouldn't even be fifth unless you think four losses to the teams that made the playoffs entitles them to same.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I believe UM could stand to lose some dead weight as well||
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Well if it's like OSU||
They were just loaners.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Depends on what side of state u want||
If West side, EGR is definitely safe bet along with Grand Haven, Spring Lake, N. Muskegon to name a few. Don't know that much about the east side. AA seems to have a bit of the rather arrogant type although I've met more good people there than the former so I think these people are just being pretentious. For investment purposes you really can't go wrong with any of these or the burbs you listed on the E. Side. All are full of money.
You might want to look into Gross Point(e?) as well. I like Lake Michigan so that's why I chose N. Muskegon.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||has been 2nd since day it was finished||
see nothing new here.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Think he would have done better at tosu or OR||
He might get a few snaps by his jr. year; similar to Dee Hart.
|11 weeks 2 hours ago||None more deserving||
Gave up his TB position to be main blocker for Gordie Bell, even though both went for over 1K that season, then comes back next season to finish third in the Heisman. Could do it all, run over you with or without the ball. Consider also, the season he was lead blocker for Flash, Flash was leading rusher in the conference. Heisman winner was second. Some cat name Griffin from tosu.
|11 weeks 18 hours ago||It is my opinion he will be outdone||
and I think it starts when Narduzzi leaves. We all saw who lit a fire under the player's asses against Baylor. It was not the HMFIC.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Cant speak for other coaches||
but Mattison will be highest paid DL coach in nation based purely on his current contract.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||We knew what we didn't have with Carr||
while he was still here. Aside from the 2006 season, his last six years, he mailed it in.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Because, and based on the other games||
it was the only one he had his team mentally prepared for...........to a degree, that is. He should have easily had a 2-0 record over Urb but inexplicably allowed the second half of the second meeting go for naught as he repeatedly allowed Al to pick up 8 to 9 yds on first down passing and then try to run into the line for the first down, only to be denied. A couple times, OK. But the entire half. Hoke was in over his head from the time he got to Michigan and I have no idea why Brandon ever hired a coach with a lifetime winning pct. of under .500 to take the reins. Good guy, terrible big league Head Man.
|12 weeks 17 hours ago||Urban did the same damn thing||
just a few minutes later. If the qb had put just a small amount of air under the ball, Bama takes the lead. Yes I can think of a lot dumber calls, but too many of them were made in the last four years at UM.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||BM will be running the Ducks offense||
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Let's discuss it if/when it happens*||
|22 weeks 4 days ago||The only one I can imagine would be Narduzzi||
but the way the last hire was made I can't imagine them getting anything right until they get out of their own way, and that's hard for them to do.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Actually was not a pick||
In the first half they ran a well disguised pick that normally doesn't get called. Fisher got the ref's ear as he should.
On the play in question, the offensive player never tried to disengage from the defender. He didn't shield any one,i.e., a pick, but as a receiver he has to run a pattern. He simply can't drive block a db like an OL, and an OL gets only 3 yds on a pass play. If they had run the play like they did in the first half, it might have been called, but I doubt it after Fisher complained.
However, they could have run the bunch formation with all receivers running legit routes to clear the area and have the RB merely hit the DE or blitzer and then receive the toss from Golson and walk into the vacated area.
Yes, Brian you teach illegal plays, but everyone in football does, so don't feel bad. Just imagine a db riding a receiver from the l.o.s. four yards into the end zone. The flag would have been tossed on about the second step, no argument no matter where the ball was thrown. Obvious offensive interference, but extremely difficult to admit he designed play that way or his receivers failed to execute as instructed which would have been totally contrary to his claim. No win situation for him. Should have left it alone. Great game, however.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Yes we do.....get less invested||
as the years roll by. I must admit when we are "Michigan" in the true sense of the word; something we haven't been since Lloyd started mailing it in about three years before he retired losses still bothered me, but to a much lesser extent when I was young enough to still feel like I could play.
Prior to being able to catch every UM game on t.v., I do recall not getting any pussy for a week for throwing a radio through the drywall and explaining to my wife if she had half the passion between the sheets as I do for UM football our marriage would be a lot better. Not one of my better days.
But as the years rolled on and I realized we'd have to settle for that one loss a year -this was under Bo- I became more and more tolerant. It was after I had my son that I, without even realizing it, allowed myself about a ten minute grieving process and then let it go. Marriage was better, I was better, son turned out great but he displayed the same symptoms I did every time MI did that I displayed while younger. So yes, I think the older we get, the more accepting we become.
