That's awesome. After watching that video he seems like such a regular guy. Not someone who was a college football All American and number one draft choice in the NFL. So chill and down to earth.

I hope the team remembers what team Newsome suffered that injury against, with a cheap chop block.  (I remember being pissed about it even before we realized Newsome was seriously hurt.)

Here's to Mo Hurst and company breaking those Badgers' hearts.  Doing so cleanly, but still with character and cruelty.

RichRod should have got another year. You have to at least have 4 years to turn things around. Then Hoke comes in and hoodwinks everyone with a 11-1 record by running Denatd into the ground, literally. Without Denard I don’t think Hoke twins 11. Denard was unbelievable when healthy. He was a threat to take it to the anytime he touched the ball.

The only thing Hoke did differently from what Rich Rod would have done in 2011 is field a defense that an accomplished DC put together.  Rich Rod would NOT have gone 11-1 that year.  At best, he'd be 7-5, but probably not even that good.  His teams were trending down, he had lost the players, and they quit whenever anything got tough.

No thanks.  Rich Rod was done - you get 4 years if the team has a pulse.  His didn't.  And if you're one of those 'but the record was improving each year' guys, take one look at that bowl game against MSU (NTMSU) and tell me again how his team was 'improving'.

That said, watching an upper-classman DRob run a Rich Rod offense would have been much more enjoyable than whatever that was that Hoke did to him...

Kirk Cousins, Leveon Bell, Max Bullough, Darqueze Dennard, Jerel Worthy, Denicos Allen.

They won the division, lost a heart breaker against a very good Wisconsin team led by Russell Wilson (yes, that game featured two of the best current NFL QBs).

Then they beat a good UGA team in the outback bowl after being disrespekted by the BCS when we were selected for the Sugar Bowl over them.

But yes, with OSU down that year, the conference as a whole wasn't outstanding.  It wasn't much different than it is this year though (no top ten teams heading into this week, with only OSU projected to be there tonight).

Somebody ought to tell Jake that there's not actually an M on the front of the Michigan jersey.  (UTL excepted, of course).

Just, uh, not me.  I'll observe from a safe distance. ;)

Often forgotten is correct.  And when he's remembered, its as one of Carr's less remarkable QBs.  Which is probably true, given the QBs that Carr sent to the NFL.  But Navarre had his time in the league, also.  It was a short run, but he was there and did play.

He was forced to play too early because Henson left.  It did not work out very well, and it hurt his reputation for the rest of his time at Michigan.

But senior Navarre was a completely different QB than freshman Navarre.  He was an NFL-level QB when he left.  He completely dismantled Ohio State.

That's what he should be remembered for.

There is a lesson in there somewhere for us fans.

Used to see Jake and his now-wife all the time around campus. Even as a freshman, he was just massive. It's amazing to see a human being who's obviously about two cuts above what a normal person looks like.
