It always seemed like a great idea when it was Grbac to Howard...

06/03/2018 - 11:28pm I think Harbaugh has

I think Harbaugh knows how important The Game is to Michigan.

I think Charles is providing motivation so the players don’t lose focus this summer.

01/21/2018 - 9:04pm Well, some people do need to

Well, some people do need to be available 24/7/365.

Those folks would obviously be very happy to surrender their phone for 2-3 hours; however, those needing to contact that person would likely be quite unhappy.

01/10/2018 - 3:16pm My issue is that if you're

My issue is that if you're going to review that play for whom the ball touched last, you should be able to say that you also missed the foul where the defender got half ball-half hand causing the ball to pop loose. Get the whole play right.

11/27/2017 - 9:28pm I agree. Brady had it worse.

Ugh, my first double post.

11/27/2017 - 9:27pm I agree. Brady had it worse.

I agree. Brady had it worse. Even though he was winning as a starter, they kept putting Henson in the game for the second quarter.

As for recent transfers that made it to the pros ... Jake Rudock comes to mind.

10/24/2017 - 11:27pm Well, according to the 2015

Well, according to the 2015 article below, IZ has been a staple of the Harbaugh running game for a while. its not like he never ran IZ or OZ before he hired Frey. I'm not convinced you have to be a only gap team, or only a zone team.…

10/08/2017 - 4:03pm I do remember hearing about

I do remember hearing about it too, and I just did a brief internet search to try to look it up but only found vague references. If someone knows better, please share.

Coaches apparently can't go onto the field anymore, without risking an unsportsmanlike penalty. And something new this year is that coaches can be ejected from games for protesting calls.

10/08/2017 - 3:58pm yes, can someone with better

yes, can someone with better knowledge comment? I know there are new rules with unsportsmanlike penalties specifically aimed at coaches who are demonstrative on the sidelines. Does anyone know the specifics of the new rules?

Edit: my brief internet search suggests that coaches can't walk onto the field of play unless invited by the officials, and they can now be ejected from the game for protesting calls.

10/03/2017 - 12:58am I do remember Harbaugh saying

I do remember Harbaugh saying in a interview som time ago, that the "option in some form" would always be somewhere in the offense, because of the stress it places on a defense. I don't know if I've yet recognized it this year.

09/24/2017 - 11:58pm At 8:25 can anyone lip read

At 8:25 can anyone lip read what Harbaugh is telling O'Korn?

I was there. 26 years ago? I guess I'm getting old. Still bleed Maize and Blue. :)

09/04/2017 - 5:26pm I want to know if the 3-3-5

I want to know if the 3-3-5 utilized against franks was different from the 3-3-5 used against Zaire.

09/03/2017 - 3:37pm Since we were playing mostly

Since we were playing mostly a 3 man front, I wouldn't expect any of the DL to get their name called a lot. And I thought that playing a 3-4 would put edge contain responsibility on the OLB, not the DL?

I think if Gary played 3 tech or WDE in a 4 man front he'd rack up many TFLs and sacks.

09/03/2017 - 3:15pm I think so too. Since brown

I think so too. Since brown started out with 4DL and quickly changed to a 3 man front, it seemed like he sensed that Florida wasn't going to take advantage of having less beef up front. To me, it seemed that most 3man fronts still had at least 1 LB rushing. Can't wait for the UFR.

Also underappreciated was our edge contain. How many perimeter plays did Florida run where the guy is contained and gets turned back right into a hustling Mo Hurst!

08/26/2017 - 12:23am For what it's worth, he's

For what it's worth, he's likely diagnosing with visual evidence. There are a few classic injury mechanisms for acl tears. If you slow down a replay of the injury, you can see what leg positioning and action was being performed, and tell if the mechanism of injury is one that is typical of acl tears or not.

You can read up a little on here:

I have a question about the analysis of him losing contain in those examples against Wisconsin and fsu. Was he really the contain guy? He comes inside so aggressively, it seems likens thinks someone else should have emlos responsibilities?

Would love to know who it is, but just can't get myself to click on a link that goes to the freep site.

11/28/2016 - 2:25pm FWIW, I think Harbaugh

FWIW, I think Harbaugh already accomplished his goal with the presser rant. I think the whole locker room felt that way, and if Harbaugh says it, that means no one else on the team has to say it.

Harbaugh will take any fine. He's fine with absorbing any criticism. He doesn't care what people outside the team think about him.

If he didn't say it, and a player was goaded into saying it by the press, they'd be labeled as a whiner and loser. Because you know, the press already wrote an article about X player whining about the officiating. Harbaugh made them change the story.

11/21/2016 - 12:34am How does striking have 200

How does Stribling have 200 more snaps than Lewis? That's like 3 full games more snaps. Oh never mind, I forgot Lewis was out for a few games at the beginning of the year,

11/13/2016 - 3:29pm To me, it seemed that the

To me, it seemed that the tactic was to stop them, force the field goal, and then have enough time to try our own field goal. Thats why the time outs were called on defense. Unfortunately, Beathard's scramble to get a first down ended that. Was a decent job at a block attempt. Wormley got through, but the kick went to the other side.

10/05/2016 - 12:10am "I still think Louisville has

"I still think Louisville has the better chance to make it as the second ACC team than Ohio State has as the second B1G ten team"

Corrected that for you.

10/05/2016 - 12:07am Higher SAT and ACT scores

Higher SAT and ACT scores sound like athlete star ratings. It's nice, and may predict success... But student development, like player development while in college matter more in getting long term results.

10/03/2016 - 7:24pm Winning percentage

Total agreement with Blue Dispatch above me. Winning percentage should be part of the QB assessment. In a team sport like football, often time the QB has to sacrifice personal statistics to achieve team success.

10/03/2016 - 2:30am I believe Harbaugh made one

I believe Harbaugh made one or two mentions of Tice during an interview during fall camp. That's when I first heard his name.

09/07/2016 - 1:06am Re: Harbaugh Hype beating,

Re: Harbaugh Hype beating, season 2.... Speight is a smart man. He put his helmet on before Harbaugh started whacking his head.

09/06/2016 - 5:57pm Helps. IIRC, I thought that

Helps. IIRC, I thought that Harbaugh once said in an interview he thought that QB and OL are where redshirts help the most. All other positions don't matter as much.

09/06/2016 - 12:25am I love Harbaugh's response

I love Harbaugh's response regarding Walker. Academic issues, and he's currently 100% academics, not even half time football. Give the man the best chance to get his grades in order without the pressure of having to learn football at the same time.

09/04/2016 - 3:28am All I can say is that I work

All I can say is that I work on Labor Day, but it's going to be a great day. Who's got it better than us?

09/04/2016 - 3:26am I was mostly a fan during the

I was mostly a fan during the game...

If someone more knowledgeable can tell me if I saw this right:

When I looked at Evans' long 43yd TD run ... It seemed like a really well blocked counter play by the OL, where Kugler was the LG, pulled and made the kickout block. Poggi came through as the lead blocker and couldn't find anyone to block because his man took himself out of the play trying to double team Kugler. And Bushell Beatty pushed his man 4 yards off the line. Big hole for Evans who had the speed to blow past 4 defensive players trying to close the hole.

08/31/2016 - 2:14am Wow. Thanks. That was my best

Wow. Thanks. That was my best personal memory from the Big House.

08/20/2016 - 4:33pm For me, it was fourth down.

For me, it was fourth down. Notre Dame looks like they're making a comeback and they've got momentum.

We all know what's coming, everyone's at the line of scrimmage waiting for the power run. Elvis takes the snap and hands off, and there is this pile of humanity at the line of scrimmage... Did they make first down?

No! Elvis still has the ball?!?! Oh no, there's only one receiver out there, and he's double covered ... So Elvis throws the ball away out the end of the end zone where no one can catch it.

But then this lone receiver wearing #21, draped by two defensive backs, turns into a blue and maize missile and somehow dives and meets the ball in the end zone!

I think the stadium was pin drop quiet for a few seconds until an official raises 2 arms for a touchdown. Pandemonium ensues.

08/17/2016 - 6:50pm It depends. I went through

It depends. I went through this with my company's CPA a few years back. If the premiums are paid with after-tax dollars then the benefits will not be taxed. If the premiums are paid with pre-tax dollars, the benefits are taxed. Most choose to go with after tax premiums to avoid getting taxed on the benefits.

04/08/2016 - 5:55pm Seems like Harbaugh may not

Seems like Harbaugh may not need to say or tweet anything. It will be said by others.

04/08/2016 - 5:50pm I can see your concern. There

I can see your concern. There is certainly a balance that needs to happen with high schoolers camping.

As far as I understood the satellite camps, is that Harbaugh has welcomed many other college coaches to join in. He thought it did increase the exposure of potential students, whereas they may have been overlooked. Instead of 50 schools holding 2 camps a year, I thought his vision was to have 50 states holding 1-4 regional camps where many coaches visited. I would think that satellite camps would prevent kids and families from overspending, because the camps would come to them - rather than you going to the camps. Right now, you go to a camp, and it's sponsored by one local university. You travel to 15 camps to be seen by 15 universities. Why not be able to go to one camp and get seen by 15 universities all at once?

04/08/2016 - 5:24pm Seems simple to me. Effective

Seems simple to me. Effective immediately, Jim Harbaugh and the entire Michigan football staff have resigned their positions at the University of Michigan, to pursue other personal interests. Warde Manuel has started the new coaching staff search.. The AD believes has a top candidate in mind already, he expects to made the decision soon, and will introduce the new staff after some football satellite camps finish.

Seems to me that if you're no longer employed, you can travel where you want, talk as much as you want to athletes and parents and coaches. You're not the Michigan coach, and you're not recruiting for Michigan. But you might be taking a new job in a few weeks, and we'll talk more when that happens. :)

04/08/2016 - 5:06pm I presume there's no chance

I presume there's no chance in seeing which way each person voted?

02/13/2016 - 2:45pm But isn't that the point of

But isn't that the point of crowding the plate in softball? The batters want to get hit by the pitch so they can take first base. They even step in and lean into the ball to get themselves hit.

01/31/2016 - 12:00am That's apparently that's what

That's apparently that's what thy reach at northwestern's school of journalism.

01/25/2016 - 11:16pm Seems like we could do better

Seems like we could do better if we just revised the terminology.

Commitable offer = scholarship
Non commitable offer = waitlist for scholarship
Gray(grey) shirt = Deferred scholarship
Preferred walk on = second level waitlist for scholarship
Commit = first choice in school

That should put things more in parallel to the rest of the admissions process.

As for the craziness of recruiting or the admissions process. In my M education, my grad school class of 100+ students all introduced ourselves the first day. One guy went up and said, "I was going to another university yesterday. They called me yesterday, told me I was off the waitlist and had a spot. I changed my flight, packed my bags, and I'm here today. Does anyone have a spare couch I can sleep on for a few days until I can find a place to stay?" Goes to show it ain't over until the day classes start.

01/10/2016 - 4:14am What I don't understand is

What I don't understand is ...

After an offer is made, and a recruit verbally "commits" ... When do they actually get to sign the letter or intent / financial aid agreement?

12/11/2015 - 1:44am You guys are half right and

You guys are half right and half wrong.

You can be fired for HiPPA violations. You can not be procsecuted. An individual violating HIPPA is not subject to criminal or civil penalties because HIPPA is not in the criminal or civil code. The institution violating HIPPA is subject to HIPPA penalties.

So if Leaking patient info is true, then the UM hospital is the entitiy that is liable for the penalties, not the individual. As a result, the hospital can levy internal penalties on the individual, such as counseling up to termination.

10/07/2015 - 11:30pm Well, residents in the

Well, residents in the medical system are an unusual mindset. The 80 hour work week is too little, because there are 168 hours in a week. If you're a surgeon to be and limited to 80 hours, you'll miss the opportunity to be part of more than half of the surgeries that could happen.

10/05/2015 - 3:20pm That's exactly what I was

That's exactly what I was thinking. Demonstrating numbers in a given population is great, but then being able I apply those criteria to predict future events would lend strength to its validity.

09/16/2015 - 3:17am I totally agree, there are

I totally agree, there are many things you can give money to. If people don't want to support him, they don't have to. Heck there are a whole bunch of indegogo causes out there that cause me to scratch my head. Frankly, I think it does take some courage to even ask.

I supported a few artists that put a tv show on Hulu. Was it only a minuscule portion of their whole budget, sure. They were friends of mine. I also gave to some lady standing on the corner who had a sad story. Also gave to the leukemia and lymphoma society. Good service at restaurants usually get bigger tips too.

Other than taxes, my money goes where I choose it to go to.

09/12/2015 - 11:57pm I think of it was Harbaugh

I think of it was Harbaugh making sure everyone is held accountable for doing their jobs. That includes the officiating crew.

09/08/2015 - 2:25am Wow, that play looks a lot

Wow, that play looks a lot like the play featured on this Stanford play:…

By the looks of the design, does it have an option of going either inside or outside depending on how the defense reacts?
