No one is better than Izzo at turning one and done players into four year 'scholar' athletes.

03/18/2018 - 12:23am Holy F!!!

Way to grind team

03/09/2018 - 4:44pm Bowl games

Maybe they should do a similar exercise on football bowl games to highlight the inherent home field advantage of the SEC, Big 12 (at least Texas) and PAC 12 - oh wait we are talking about an espn offshoot here.

03/03/2018 - 7:36pm Last game

That's a nice final B1G game for Izzo.

Been a rough year.

Enjoy retirement.

02/16/2018 - 6:32pm Agreed

Thanks for a proper OT thread to counter all the trolls.

I enjoyed having guests back but the rest was, as you said, a little less fun.

They should also bring back the traveling tent.

01/26/2018 - 2:13pm Slow clap for ESPN

We might give the world wide leader crap for their skewed coverage, but they nailed it this time. While most of this information has been discussed around here, the outside world was blissfully unaware until now.

The bigger picture with Penn State, MSU, the Tennessee rape incident and all the basketball recruiting malfeasance is that big money has hopelessly corrupted the priorities of those in charge of college athletics. It's no longer a few isolated incidents of points shaving or individual bag men paying recruits; it's now entire institutions covering up or looking away from wrong doing or in Pitino's case actively assisting in the wrong doing.

It's a sad day when we are forced to realize that there may be no innocence left in college athletics. I hope the MSU fallout convinces all other schools to take a harder look, and spare a few victims.

12/09/2017 - 10:19am Go Navy!

Go Navy
Beat the dirt eaters

11/28/2016 - 12:10pm Crazy

As someone who was almost in the Navy Yard at the wrong time a few years ago, I offer my prayers to those involved.

11/14/2016 - 1:20pm It's okay

I don't measure my self-worth by mgopoints

11/14/2016 - 1:15pm Concur

You are right on both points...he hates to lose and getting Wilton hurt sucks.

But it's an interesting thought

11/14/2016 - 12:46pm Conspiracy theory?

Harbaugh threw the game against Iowa to ensure OSU could not go to the B1G title game and to rob them of some motivation in The Game. Playoff committee would look more favorably on a road loss to Iowa than a home loss to Indiana. No real consequence for Michigan as the team still has everything to gain if they win out.

Would explain some iffy offensive play calling. (?)

I'm not saying it happened, but I would not put it past the grand chess master Harbaugh or Ernst Blofeld.

11/11/2016 - 8:36am Thanks to those still serving!!

Loved the pics RGard, even the plane which the blue suited civilians keep trying to kill.

I'll take the Naval variety myself. I managed to keep a shell casing from a 5"54 when I got out.

Thanks to all those still serving, it's been tough duty the past 15 years.

11/06/2016 - 6:34pm But it's spelled wrong

You forgot the ' in Mike D'Antonio

Solid trolling job OP

10/23/2016 - 8:10pm Back in the box Sparty Gimp

I'm sure you'll be relevant again at some point in the next 50 years.

10/23/2016 - 10:34am Win with character, win with cruelty

What a beautiful autumn so far.

10/22/2016 - 11:42pm Shame ND was on a bye

So, so close to a perfect Saturday

10/22/2016 - 11:39pm Come on Penn State

We still think you are terrible people, but we sure want the Buckeyes to lose to shut Urban up!

09/24/2016 - 7:20pm #1 Jersey

So does Brian Kelly stop giving out the #1 jersey now?

09/24/2016 - 7:17pm So much shorter

These threads are so much shorter now that the fan base no longer thinks it is smarter than the coaching staff.

We need to study harder to get ahead of Harbaugh :)

09/24/2016 - 7:12pm Complaint

My only complaint is that the team left little for fans to complain about.

09/24/2016 - 7:08pm Sweet!

02/06/2016 - 4:44pm Yup and I'm one of them.

Tongue in cheek post is meant to be tongue in cheek.

Except for the part about getting an MBA

02/06/2016 - 4:40pm Ethics & personality

If you have ethics - Accounting

If you don't - Finance

If you have a personality - Finance

If not - Accounting

If you want to be 'right' - Accounting

If you want to try to be rich - Finance

Somewhat kidding... Get the MBA with a lot of finance & accounting credits to make it worthwhile.

02/05/2016 - 11:25pm Let me translate for those hard of hearing

The rumor is that he was having trouble HASHing things out with Harbaugh. He had a lot more HIGHs than lows, even after multiple warnings, which in this case ended poorly for him.

Rest in peace Maurice, your music will live on.

02/03/2016 - 4:27pm Like they always say...

... The best players from the state of New Jersey go to Michigan.

(Or something like that)

02/02/2016 - 8:56am Great story...

... nice distraction from all the 'crootin'.

 

I love that while the article is from the Colts media, the ring he's wearing in his charity's official picture is from MICHIGAN!

02/01/2016 - 10:43pm I see you...

I loved the Michigan PSA in support of victims... Surprised not to see the PSU version from a few years ago.

Trolling on a University-wide level.

01/29/2016 - 11:02am Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

They called that other fellow (007) Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang ... 

 

Me... I'm just here for the pos-bang bang

01/29/2016 - 11:00am Timing was off

Brian - "Denard's" timing was a week off... he should have known to arrive AFTER signing day, not the week before.   (>24hours without the informative update)

I hope you have gotten the little guy home, I heard Harbaugh wanted him at the signing of the stars.

I wonder what colors his bedroom will be?

I thought recruits came in pairs?!?

 

Congrats to the Cook family

10/17/2015 - 7:51am Win the game...

... Then watch the sparty meltdown.

10/14/2015 - 3:37pm We are rapidly approaching SNL territory here

Insert Harbaugh into Da Bears skits in place of Ditka:

So... Who wins a game when a team full of Jim Harbaughs coached by Bo faces off against a team of Michigan legends coached by Jim Harbaugh...

Are the Jim Harbaughs full sized or miniature?

Full sized, except for coach Jim Harbaugh who is a tiny Jim Harbaugh.

Well, that's easy then - Harbaugh!

10/12/2015 - 9:51pm Maybe Brady Hoke would parachute in to help his brother...

Take over DC duties while Jon ascends to the top job.

Would be a good story for him to turn the page.

10/12/2015 - 9:47pm Jon Hoke rumored to be interim coach per worldwide leader

Brady's older brother.

If true, best of luck to him.

10/10/2015 - 8:22pm This Harbaugh guy and his staff might be good.

Let's keep them around.

10/10/2015 - 8:19pm Happy fans post less

Fans are very happy with the defense.

All hail harbaugh!

10/10/2015 - 8:04pm Throw the OP a life ring - maybe

Have the band and cheerleaders revived the rockey and bullwinkle dance? There was a time... A long, long, long time ago when too many games were blowouts by the second half that a subsection of the band would circle the stadium and play the bullwinkle theme song and we danced like drunken idiots with our hands on our heads as antlers...probably because we were drunken and idiots... If the band and cheerleaders have brought this back, then I'll approve OPs message.

10/05/2015 - 2:32pm Entirely plausible

'The Martian' started life as a blog and was written chapter by chapter with input from the blog's readers - some of whom were top notch thinkers in space science.  

So it is entirely plausible that one of them was familliar with the work out of the OLDEST and FINEST Aerospace Engineering department in the USA.

More on that story here:

09/26/2015 - 3:45pm Fully operational

Our Harbaugh is now Fully Operational.

09/18/2015 - 10:55am You are right

Local radio confirmed this am that it was a fight between girlfriend and ex-girlfriend.

I think the booster needs to take off his scarlet colored glasses. This will not end well for Caroo

09/17/2015 - 10:42pm View from New Brunswick

Don't shoot the messenger... But a big time Rutgers booster I talked to is convinced that Caroo was defending his mom from a crazed ex-girlfriend during this incident.

Also, if the rest of the sewage which is recent RU athletics did not exist, he thought that this incident would not even have cracked the natl' media.

Now, the same guy swore that Flood was a super upstanding guy, so take it with a sack of salt.

09/05/2015 - 11:55am Need to resked

We absolutely should schedule another home and home with Utah to even the record. In a year or two we will be at full Harbaugh.

We were never going to win the National Championship this year... Losing a tough game on the road is the kind of experience which Harbaugh needs to get the team's attention. A win over a tomato can would not have demonstrated to the team how far we still have to go.

09/04/2015 - 12:49pm Lots of LTT? And plenty of time to get better.

Was it just me, or was LTT in at left tackle a whole bunch with Cole over at RT? Might be an indication that Mags could not handle the size of the Somoans in Utah's front 7 or maybe Mags got hurt.

I think this team will build nicely over the season and take off once we get to the Drake at RB.

Remember, the useless nuts lost their first game last year as they broke-in a new OL, but got better the rest of the way. Now, I'm not saying we'll win the Natty, but the team is already better in game one under Harbaugh than they were in year four of Hoke and they'll keep getting better.

08/28/2015 - 10:52am Parallels

If this staff can do for offense what Mattison and the last staff did for defense... without doing to the defense what the staff before them did... then...

.. oh crap, let's just get the season here already

 

08/23/2015 - 1:44pm As your last pick...

Sure, but at his current ADP I can't see it.

He has all the potential in the world and an open track to a heavy workload... But he did at UM as well and never put it all together (even in light of the tire fire around him). I'd punt on him at his current price.

But I'm buying Denard in round 13 or later.
