All of Weis' edges are rounded off, no way he causes that sort of damage.
|5 days 14 hours ago||We're not kidding ourselves||
This was a survey done by people not associated with either university. If you think NW is better, that's your prerogative. But this isn't a bunch of M people saying we're better.
|6 days 9 hours ago||Whoa!||
Yes, thank you Mr. Hackett fromthe bottom of our maize and blue hearts. But let's not go thanking "future" AD's until we see what they do. Most people felt Brandon was a good hire at the time, and that didn't go too well.
|1 week 3 days ago||No SEC schools?||
Another recruiting advantage. There must be so free stuff walking around that no one needs Ashley Madison down south.
|1 week 3 days ago||Never?||
"Yes, officer, I was the one who put six bullets in the chest of that dead guy last night."
|1 week 3 days ago||How many times||
do people have to be taught the same lesson? Watergate should have proved the point forever--come clean right off the bat, and you are way better off. We f'd up. We're sorry. Here is what we are doing to make sure it will never happen again. That lesson seems to have been lost on Brandon, among many others, as we see in almost daily political reports.

Dude was 6'5". One of the best C Michigan ever had, and a hell of a pro too.

Everything you want in a student athlete. Also, AC, Desmond, Woodson and Leach, since others have gone as high as 5.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||My reaction too||
If he really believed that, small wonder he was so unsuccessful as a coach. It is great to love the school, critical to build character, graduate players, etc., but this is football, and the idea is you have to win, and if you suck, no one gets all that excited about how much you may love the school.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||awesome article||
thanks for posting it. I am sure I read it in 1981, but great to read it again. You forget the details of what made Bo so special; this reminds you of them.

That's Kaitlin to you, in case you haven't heard.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Not outspoken||
Nor particularly articulate.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Waiting for Harbaugh||
Waiting for Harbaugh made sense. Diddling around and then hiring Hoke did not.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Once upon a time||
ND had classy uniforms, the blue and gold, with the shiny gold helmet. It was the only good thing about ND. Then they adopted alternate green jerseys, once in a blue moon, and that was sort of cool. Then they tried to make the helmet even shinier, and that looked like gilding the lily. These? God-awful. I would have thought ND wanted to protray an elegant, understated image, as they used to. These scream (as someone put it) off-brand Oregon or Baylor. The helmet in particular is hideous.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Exeunt||
I believe it's plural, although I suppose there have been so many "Norfleet is leaving" reports by now that using plural may be appropriate.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Agree completely||
Classy guy. Contrast him to Draymond Green, who is a consummate jerk, who somehow got onto this list.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||"Like feeding Gizmo after midnight"||
Apart from the interesting sports information, it is lines like this one drawn from relatively obscure locales that make this blog so entertaining, and cause me check it daily even when nothing much is happening with UM sports.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Kalis and Magnuson||
I think those guys are pretty solid too. Braden is the one mystery. He has the size and strength seemingly to dominate at T, but he has not, and now he is at G. If he works out there, then between him and Kalis I think we may have two of the better guards in the Big Ten by the end of the year. I expect big things from Kalis this year with Drevno coaching the OL.

Need we say more? It was time for RR to go.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Yes and no||
Hoke took over a team with some solid seniors, BUT with almost nothing in the underclass offensive pipeline other than slot receivers (obviously an exaggeration). In Hoke's defense, the woeful OL recruiting by RR played a large part in the slide from season one, not that Hoke's horrible coaching wasn't also a major factor in that. Hey, they both sucked at Michigan, and whatever either has done or may do elsewhere is really of no concern to me. Hail Harbaugh, who has yet to suffer a loss as M coach!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||If he thinks he can play||
It is probably to his advantage to acclimate himself to a new school, watch the team play, learn the system, work with the coaches to the extent he can, and be comfortable going into the season when he hopes to play.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Elsewhere?||
Hell, I'm not certain there is intelligent life on Earth.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Sugar Bowl stripes||
Not everyone liked them. They only looked "good" in relation to the many abominations we had seen. Tolerable, yes; good, no. At least in my opinion.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I'm good with this||
If Michigan has defined what "maize" looks like, that's fine with me. I would like it if we just stuck with that color instead of going through a variety of them. And if people don't like the actual color, well, so it goes--the colors are "maize and blue" not yellow and blue or chartreuse and blue (or whatever some of those recent colors actually are). Let's just use the real colors instead of the colors we would individually pick out if we had a choice.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Sparty||
I had forgotten Sparty has Nike. One more thing for Dantanio to be outraged about when it comes out that Michigan got a far sweeter deal from Nike than MSU has.
|8 weeks 11 hours ago||"Devon was not||
the kind of person to do something stupid." Interesting comment, when the evidence to the contrary is laying right in front of you.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||"aw, heck, you're due"||
That was a fairer way of deciding who goes to the Rose Bowl than having the athletic directors decide that, gee, Michigan outplayed Ohio State, and Ohio State went last, but Dennis Franklin has a broken arm, and maybe Ohio State has a better chance of winning, and, by the way, the MSU guy hates Michigan and doesn't want them to go, so what the hell, let's send Ohio State and screw Michigan.

They're a dangerous breed.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||One of these things is not like the others||
Michigan, Stanford, Duke, ND and Oklahoma. Weird fifth school.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||No||
Jonas Gray played a lot at ND. Didn't Chris Norman start for MSU?
