Kerridge obliterated guys but wasn't used enough. Our young RBs weren't fast enough to get to the corners, and rarely followed the holes he opened. Very frustrating to watch. Hopefully if Fred Jackson stays, Harbaugh does not allow this continue or benches RBs that dont block or follow blocks.
|7 hours 34 min ago||Some perspective||
The very recent UM QBs have suffered from no real running game, a non MIchigan like offensive line, a refusal to call more check down plays to Kerridge and Butt (who will thrive under Harbaugh), and a star receiver who checked out/ had dropsies.
I can remember the first games of Harbaugh, Grbac, Brady, et. al and very few were pretty and they had tons of weapons around them - so don't be so quick to write off Shane. Brady was crucified his first year and everyone wanted Henson.
We just need a QB who can intelligently make reads and not turn the ball over. We won a NC with Brian Griese doing that. OSU did it with Krenzel. Their first starts were scary to say the least.
We also used to have a QB coach dedicated to developing this position. I don't know what has gone on under Hoke and I'll leave it at that. Harbaugh will change that.
I truly believe a star QB will emerge , who is a UM guy now, under Harbaugh. Since we all like to speculate here, I'll go with Speight, but wouldn't count out Shane. Harbaugh likes tough and smart QBs, more than guys who run 4.3 40s.
I also do believe we will get several transfers including a QB. At the top of my list would be a field stretching wide receiver threat.
Right now EVERYONE will be at square one and will have to earn a spot. When Bo first came on board his practices were very tough and many guys quit and thought he was a mad man. Could see the same thing now.
It will be a great off season and don't count anyone out who has the heart and drive to become a star under a guy who can really coach.

I don't see either one working for a while, collecting their big UM payouts, and laying low trying to figure out how it all went so poorly, so quickly.

physical abilities of an 80 year old. Just not worth it!
Thankfully my son came to this conclusion on his own and wants nothing to do with football. He loves swimming and water polo , which is one tough game, but relatively easy on the joints with surprisingly few injuries.
I'm very pleased for Trickett and applaud his judgment.

It takes days of practice to spell "O - H" " I - O" right most of the time.

Good Nova is playing today so far...

Worry about getting your butt handed to you by Bama. Roll Tide!!

but wouldn't go to this game even if I had free tickets. No appeal whatsoever.

Not sure about the alums. OSU should just join the SEC.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Braxton yes, Cardale no||
Braxton seems like a great kid and obviously is a great talent.
I would not want someone like Cardale though.

Mystery surrounds the strange coaching search to lead the greatest football program in America. All 10 Qualified and talented candidates are invited to Brandon Island and killed off one by one.

The seven year struggles of UM fans culminating in the revolution of 2014 that sees the overthrow of King Brandon and court jester Hoke. The story centers on Jean Bacon as he is accused of speaking the truth and is banished to watch games with the poor wretched masses.

He helps keep everything in perspective and fun.
|1 week 6 hours ago||Last 5 minutes is the best D they have played since Syracuse||
Offense is a major concern though. I'm just thinking they all need more time, none wil leave to the NBA early, and we'll be a damned good team next year.
Confidence in their shots and defensive intensity will be the diference between winning and losing big10games this year.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Don't give up!||
There are still many spots and it is not all about ACT/ gpa. When you get your degree it doesn't matter what path you took to get it. If it doesn't work out in Feb/Mar ( you'd be surprised for how many it does) keep trying via the transfer route.

I thought doing computer punchcards at NUBS and registering at CRISP made me ancient ; )
|1 week 20 hours ago||My best friend had a very similar experience||
His daughter did not give up and finally got into UM IOE her Junior year. She graduated last week with a UM diploma (probably appreciates it more than most) and has a $70K job waiting for her in California. Best of luck to your daughter! I must admit I would love to have witnessed a year of SEC football.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Congrats and just wait until our new coach gets||
the football team turned around. School spirit was always at a stratospheric level when we win titles and kick OSU an MSU's butt. Harbaugh and his style have the potential to bring back UM spirit to the days of Bo.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Thanks for the input||
I feel for those kids who are deferred, especially those who were really close to getting in. These will be the longest two months of their lives. I will pass on your info to my daughter to encourage her classmates who just missed out and are pretty down right now.Lots more pressure with social media now - everyone knows everthing!
|1 week 21 hours ago||I wish she had applied to OSU||
So she could burn that letter like Kyle Kalis! ... I got accepted six years after you but also in early October. It was such a huge relief and then I partied like a pro my senior high school year, especially since the drinking age was 17 in Canada.
My daughter also got accepted at MSU, who did a great job recruiting her, and is a much different school from the 70's and 80's MSU I knew. I knew she was UM bound though when her password for the MSU admissions system was "Stauskas".
|1 week 21 hours ago||Congrats to you too!||
I'm still in a state of shock and verklempt also. Yeah, I didn't want to write the part about somebody cutting onions at my house, lol.

The crap that is out there from "people in the know" is mind blowing. I don't know how Sam Webb does his job. Would love to see him and Ira get drunk and tell these idiots off.

A perfect match: Jones + Pelini + Tressel
Don't be surprised if the Cleveland Glenville pipeline goes to Youngstown.
