Anyone know how he fared? Discus, weight throw, and shot. Former student of mine here in central Ohio.

01/20/2018 - 4:51pm Writing on the wall,

Fans were calling for his head and they hired Kevin Wilson, pretty much a get out before you’re pushed situation. Plus his son is an early enrollee linebacker at Michigan State and pretty much all their family lives in metro Detroit.

01/20/2018 - 1:25pm I had Ed Warriners son, Ed, in high school last year,

And he told me his dad would love to work with Harbaugh and Drevno.

12/10/2016 - 9:54am He'll pass.

Smart hard-working kid. Besides the fact it effects his family he's not really a buckeye. He is more of a Kansas guy as that is where his dad was when he was growing up. Will probably end up playing at Michigan State though, they've made a few visits over the last 3 months.

12/09/2016 - 6:33pm Ed warriners son is a student of mine

And he said his dad would take a head position of it came up. He's a great kid who is a pretty good ball player. I wouldn't be surprised to see him go be a head coach because I was told "head coach is a dream of his"

11/22/2016 - 6:04pm What part of he city?

We're in Lewis Center and y'all are welcome here to! Cheers to a fellow wolverine here in enemy territory.

08/01/2015 - 10:04am Yes, they

actually have someone physically tape over all the M's on campus and change the name of a road for the week. Then the local news will report on it as if it's something creative. As a Michigan fan living just north of Columbus that whole week gives me a headache.

07/16/2015 - 7:44pm Honestly,

we start winning and people will start caring. If games are competitive and mean something students will go.

07/02/2015 - 8:30am How do you do it?

We live 15 mins north of downtown but it's a huge cluster f during Red White and Boom, how do you deal with that mess?

07/02/2015 - 8:27am Mike martin

According to his Twitter feed Mike Martin will be out on the sand bar for the 4th. Look for him!

07/01/2015 - 3:07pm Munger is the man

He played and coached at Frankenmuth, one of my older brothers played for him. Hard ass, but great coach. I had a crush on his youngest daughter who's my age in like 4th grade and his wife was my first grade teacher.

07/01/2015 - 2:02pm Nah

I did blow out my knee (complete ACL tear) but college football was never an option. I was just answering the question.

07/01/2015 - 1:56pm Frankenmuth High School 94-98

My class was 38-3 in four years. Varsity lost in semis my sophomore year to Country Day, and we lost to Riverview in the semis my senior year. More recently they have issues getting by Flint Powers in the playoffs, but are there consistently.

04/16/2015 - 2:28pm Tate

may have been a freshmen that year, but I can't remember.

04/16/2015 - 2:21pm Central Ohio's Pickerington Central team

beat the high school I work at in the regional semis with senior guard Caris Levert, junior forward Taco Charlton, and sophomore forward Jae'Sean Tate.  We held our own pretty well, but a pretty solid collection of talent in central Ohio.

Why would the Tallahassee police have a busy day during a game taking place in Alabama?

08/02/2013 - 2:05pm As a Michigan fan living in Columbus

What baffled me is outpouring of support and blatant disregard for the things he said. Too often fans of OSU put their arrogance first overlooking the true issue. Had a president of Michigan made similar comments I'd be mad as hell and supporting the fact something needed to be done. That was not the case in either Gee's or Tressel's situation. Both of them are regarded as heroes and loved unconditionally by fans here who just blindly follow as long as they're winning. I teach in a local high school, and had I made the same comments as Gee, the people supporting him would be the first to have me replaced.

My wife and I are part of the University of Michigan fan and alumni club here in Columbus and every time we've gone the events recently they've been at Gallo's tap room off Bethel Rd.  Every year they have a joint event with the Michigan St. club down here at Gallo's and they actually pass a trophy back and forth between the clubs, it's a good time.   I'd be happy to get you more information (my wife does most of the communication with the group)  if you are interested.  They send out emails detailing when they are meeting and you can also get discounted to tickets through them to UM hockey games against Ohio State.  In 2006 for the #1 vs #2 game they reserved a huge section of (what used to be Frog Bear) and it was nice to be surrounded by fans on your side.  Just let me know.

Have you been in Frankenmuth a while? My great-grandfather founded ( and uncles own) the farm equipment dealership across from Kroger and brother and cousin work there. I love going back and it is a good,safe, place to raise kids. Just once I had the taste of having everything so close it'd be hard to move back.
@dubs, I'm a teacher as well, at a high school in powell!

03/12/2013 - 7:57pm Not too bad

I've been here 9 years and really enjoy it. The previous poster puts it pretty much in perspective, people get annoying and the week of the Michigan game can get on your nerves but overall I like it. We live in lewis center about 20 mins north of downtown and I love. Granted I grew up in Frankenmuth, MI so I never lived anywhere with so much to do. It's on the close side to family and I find most of the suburbs to be very nice places.

11/23/2012 - 7:33am Team arrangements

Not sure if this is information anyone has, but here it goes. Does anyone know the hotel and arrival time if the team in the Columbus area? Living only 20 minutes from downtown I'd like to give them a great welcome this evening.

08/05/2012 - 9:31pm Spielman commentating

Is okay when Michigan isn't playing. However when he calls UM games he is terribly biased. Just watch BTN's replay of the UM/OSU game....he's terrible. A good announcer overcomes his own bias, which is something Spielman cannot do. I respect him for his time in Detroit, but he should not be calling any Michigan games!

07/26/2012 - 4:56pm Chris tucker

Is an actor who co starred in the Rush Hour series of movies along with the all time classic, Friday! I think you mean Chris L. Rucker who spent 8 days in jail only to fly to Iowa with MSU and play in that game. However, they still got destroyed...

05/12/2012 - 7:19am This kid is smooth!

Watched him beat Liberty High School (school I teach at) in the state regional semifinals in Ohio and he scored 27 points. Lanky, smooth, and tons of range, his only negative is that he's extremely skinny. Definitely needs a redshirt year, but a very nice addition!

05/02/2012 - 9:14pm I'm sorry but the players in

I'm sorry but the players in the NFL CHOOSE to play football.  They could easily turn down millions to join the everyday workforce like you or I.  Maybe stay in college and get a degree, but no.  They choose to leave college early and chase the money knowing full well that these outcomes are possible if not probable.  No they shouldn't change the game, if these players want a healthier life, don't play football.  Become doctors, lawyers, teachers, etc... like the rest of us and die naturally at an older (hopefully) age.  It's like riding a rollercoaster at Cedar Point.  You do so at your own risk.  If you personally decide that the risk is not worth the reward, don't do it.  If you decide that it is and the car gets flung from the track and you die, you made the choice fully knowing of the possible outcome. 


03/05/2012 - 10:04pm Mike isn't a true freshman. 

Mike isn't a true freshman.  He's a sophomore who played rather well last year too.

03/05/2012 - 7:11pm Well,

I've been reading the blog for a while due to it being a great source for my Michigan fix.  I just hadn't felt the need to post a whole lot until I saw your post about Mike.  I went to the B1G website and pasted the link into a school wide email.  But of course, instead of thanking me about the news they just stated the only reason I sent it is because of the fact it was Michigan related.  Typical Ohio fans thinking the world doesn't exist outside of Ohio....

03/05/2012 - 7:01pm I'm okay with it,

he was a student of mine in high school and just an awesome kid.  He ran into a bit of injury his senior year but still produced very well.  One of his teammates was last year's B1G freshmen of the year at Ohio, Josh Desze.  That Liberty baseball team had four starters go D-1.  I love hearing of the accolades Mike is obtaining and I spread them around the school as everyone hear pays religious attention to Ohio  for obvious reasons but obviously not what's going on at Michigan.

02/27/2012 - 5:54pm Congrats!

Congratulations to Mike O'Neill, a great kid who I got to know through a high school classroom on his Player of the Week honor.  He was a student in my chemistry class in Powell, Ohio a suburb 20 minutes north of Columbus.  A great young man who is deserving of this recognition.  By the way most of you may know his uncle, Paul O'Neill a one time Yankees outfielder.
