Relax

03/04/2017 - 12:42pm Yep

We were good QB play away from a NC.

01/25/2017 - 4:23pm One of my

One of my all time favorite crushes.  She was absolute beauty to me. 

01/25/2017 - 4:21pm Yep

I noticed a vet with a WWII hat on while I was getting coffee a couple of months ago on an Air Force base.  He has a Battle of Bulge pin on his cap and not one troop spoke to him.  Blew me away.......a walking piece of history.  I chatted him up for 15 minutes.  Gave he and his  wife a hug and thanked him profusely.

01/05/2017 - 8:27am Hmmm.

Weren't we the offer that really blew up his recruiting?  IIRC, we were in there showing serious love waaaayyy before he flirted with 5* status.  Really, no need to blast a program like that.  Oh well....he been long gone.  Maybe we can lock in his Mom once she scores her 115 point protection plan and sees UM on top.  Does she project to DL?

Who's with me?!?!?

12/16/2016 - 1:12pm Still spinning

Still spinning from the LTT dismissal. If not for his poor choices we would sitting with okay this season. New some would have redshirted and probably not been forced to play early. We would look at LTT, Newsome with JBB as reserve for tackles and Bredesen, Dawson, Onwenu and Kuglet at Guard with Cole and Kugler at center.

12/12/2016 - 10:35am DPJ

He did recently say something along the lines of "everyone thinks they know I'm going" .....hopefully not foreshadowing something negative for UM.

12/07/2016 - 2:09pm Agreed

Absolutely agree.  He is the most "outstanding" player.  Others have nearly replicated Jackson ( who may not be the best QB performance this year) but no one has come close to replicating Peppers' performance.

12/05/2016 - 12:54pm Home/Away

I'm assuming that we would be visitors and the ACC team home, correct?

12/04/2016 - 3:20pm Positive note

Let's make some lemonade here. We need to dominate a perennial power in a recruiting hotbed while getting another month of valuable practice for our very young backups and reserves. Speight will get more game time reps against a quick and talented defense. Harbaugh will probably manage to draw a lot of attention as far as ratings as well. The eyes of HS Florida football talent will be on us.

12/04/2016 - 3:13pm Nope

I said it all year long. We were a dominant RB ( Barkley type) from being the best team in the country.

11/27/2016 - 3:12pm Yes

Yes. Our D was tiring a bit and the OT setup benefitted them more than us.

11/19/2016 - 8:19pm Something to think about

Next year will be the first season that Harbaugh has a returning starter at QB and Don Brown's defense should be fully implemented.  If our OL, WR and DBs develop we should be pretty good.  We will be fine at QB, TE, RB, and DL.

11/19/2016 - 4:06pm JOK

JOK looks like he is suffering from a severe case of the Happy Feets.  Speight has more patience.

 

11/16/2016 - 12:57pm We are now

We are now showing 10 games of tendancies.  Don Brown can mix in a couple of zone looks on occasion.  A great example would have been on the Iowa screen for a touchdown.  A quick change of pace zone look there would have stopped a TD or possibly generated a TO.  We are predicatably unpredictable. 

11/01/2016 - 12:14pm In Tampa

In Tampa but everyone knew who he was instantly.  We have Indiana, OSU, MSU and Indiana transplants in our neighborhood. 

11/01/2016 - 11:04am Harbaugh sighting

Harbaugh was in the neighborhood doing a little recruiting.  I also noticed his hustle from house to house....netted a huge amount of candy.

 

10/13/2016 - 12:10pm Agreed

Honestly, I find myself looking for Higdon and Evans to be in the game with Issac as the "change of pace" back.  I think Harbaugh is playing this correctly.  He is rewarding his hardworking Sr. with enough carries while developing his more explosive younger backs.  This is the reason we see Morris run package type plays.  They don't "steal" practice reps from Speight and JOK yet allow Harbaugh to reward Morris' hard work and dedication with some game time action.  I think he balances meritocracy with rewarding the program elders' dedication and "loyalty" perfectly. 

10/11/2016 - 12:00pm I'm 50/50

I'm 50/50 on him leaving.  I think he sees the environment Harbaugh has created and is smart enough to know that he has a special thing here.  The NFL will treat him as an asset and he will not be able to play O/D/sepcial teams.  No more Wildcat QB, RB, etc.  The kid is having a blast right now and I'm not sure he wouldn't want one more year.  Of course, if we win a NC.....he probably gone.

10/09/2016 - 12:01am I was looking for him

You may be right.  I don't recall hearing the coaches speak about him at all.

10/08/2016 - 11:59pm Exactly

Logged in to upvote.

 

10/05/2016 - 8:12pm Unfortunately..

...this is exactly what happened to me.  Spring practice for a small D-III school...played S and the QB overthrew the WR....broke on the ball and the WR stumbled directly into my knee..."bending" it backwards...instant pain and I knew I wouldn't play football again.  This was in '91 so the recovery was much longer.  The knee was never normal again I have numerous issues with it today.  Horrible injury that I wouldn't wish on my enemy.

09/12/2016 - 7:51am In my apartment

I was in my apartment with full battle-rattle prepping to to deploy to Egypt for a training exercise.  After the second tower was hit I received a call, "Stand down.  We may be going somewhere else."  So, I watched for the next couple of hours in full fatigues with my ruck sack fully packed and just thinking " Let's go!" 

09/09/2016 - 2:18pm Might just be

Might just be a case of looking at the depth chart and thinking "I might get more playing time somewhere else".

 

Asiasi (Soph)

Wheatley (RS Soph)

Bunting (Jr)

Gentry (RS Soph)

McKeon (Soph)

 

Plus all other blocky catchy types.

09/03/2016 - 9:13pm Looks like

Looks like Mone left after Delano Hill's pick six.  The last I could see him he was celebrating the touchdown in the end-zone.  I didn't see him back in the game after that.  I'm hoping he didn't pull a Gramatica.

08/23/2016 - 7:28pm Easily Lewan

Can you imagine Lewan with Drevno coaching? How about Funchess? Harbaugh and crew would find some creative mismatches there.

08/02/2016 - 10:30pm What are the odds?

I would love to know more. I was looking to take my son to his first game that weekend or the next. I'm a retired Army Senior Non-Com and a life long Wolverine. I'd appreciate any info the board might share.

05/18/2016 - 10:50am Actually...

Actually....I would say it resembles Bosnia.  I was deployed to Tuzla and some other areas in the mid-late 90's.  We would drive through some villages and half of the house would be missing and you would see a family still living in there.  You see the same wrecked/open houses in Detroit.  In Bosnia, a tank shell ripped it open....in Detroit, it was the slow decay of blight, poverty and indifference.

05/12/2016 - 12:00pm Future S?

He is much bigger than I anticipated and pretty smooth.  He will blossom with major coaching and strength program.  We don't get to see full pads so whether he is physical enough hasn't been decided.  Anyone else think he has just about "grown into" a S at the next level?

 

05/11/2016 - 8:33am Hmmm...

I joined the Army...attended Air Assault school.....seemed to work out for me. 

 

On second take, that may be a bit extreme.

04/19/2016 - 12:23pm My first Michigan game

It was basically a walk-off TFL.  A great first game and one that, truth be told, we had no business winning.  The Roundtree Hail Mary catch was lucky enough.

04/18/2016 - 9:36am Plus...

I heard he had to run uphill and through some thickets.....so...all things considered....

03/05/2016 - 11:15am Issac

I watched Ty for a good period and thought he was noticeably quicker ....physically and wth his decision making.

03/04/2016 - 7:11pm Quick hits

Mitchell will break into top group of WRs; Furbush, McCray, Jones and Winovich with the 1s and 1.5s; Newsome looks the part at LT but needs polish on footwork; Kinnel, Pearson and Watson provide depth at DB; Wormley will be a monster this year and Taco looks great. Butt, Bunting and Wheatley are your top TE with Gentry looking a bit thin still. I'll go ahead and Raback O'Korn as your starting QB. Ty Issac looks quicker and Drake is playing fast. Quick hot takes.

03/04/2016 - 4:15pm In the stands now

About 300-400 in seats already.

03/02/2016 - 3:22pm Good looking out

Good looking out, brother.  I hope you have a great time of it. 

03/01/2016 - 4:53pm New direction?

I'm hoping Harbaugh makes an adjustment and just adopts a Grapefruit League mentality for spring practice every year.  He can rotate around the Tampa area and use non high school associated fields.  Maybe USF, UCF, University of Tampa, Orlando area, etc.  There are soooooo many fields to choose from in the area.  This would remove the assocation with a specific high school.  Hell, UM could purchase a "spring ball" bit of land and let the softball team use it as well.......maybe around the Lakeland area.

03/01/2016 - 4:49pm Leaving Tampa

We are just making a day of it.  My son and I are pulling out of the New Tampa area around 1100...should hit Bradenton around 1200-1230 and will spend a couple hours at the beach before queuing up around 1500 or so.

03/01/2016 - 3:15pm Got it...

My actual goal is to get "WHOSE GOT IT BETTER THAN US?" on video. 

03/01/2016 - 3:11pm In case of Harbaugh interaction...

In case of a potential Harbaugh interaction I'm going to wear one of my USCENTCOM shirts and ask him to "swap jerseys".  That's legit, right? 

01/30/2016 - 5:41pm Need a Boss DT

Need a Boss DT to replace Elliot.

01/30/2016 - 9:38am Welp...

Back to the drawing board.  One thing is for sure, this isn't the safe (and "boring") recruting classes of one Brady Hoke.

01/05/2016 - 9:03am Whooaaa....

A young Steve Yzerman might have a word of caution for ya.

12/31/2015 - 11:15am Yep...

We are 24/7/365 and I am "on-call" 24/7/365.  I feel you.

12/18/2015 - 11:19am Next film opens..

Next film opens with a memorial for Han and you will be see Lando and Luke there. 

12/06/2015 - 11:30am Jones..

Are we looking at some of that Florida speed with Jones? Our single biggest weakness , IMHO, is lack of speed at LB and DE. I can't count how many times our LB corp took 4.5 speed angles when they are 4.75 backers.

11/24/2015 - 10:06am Was hoping

Was kind of hoping for a triple commitment post followed by the breaking news of the entire starting Buckeye offense being suspended for DUIs.

11/23/2015 - 2:25pm Crushed

That picture just crushed me.  As a father of three.........man.......crushed.  I'm literally getting up and going for a walk.

11/18/2015 - 4:54pm No brainer

You have to take this guy if available.

Jake is gone.

O'Korn is our most experienced option next year.

If Morris doesn't "beat out" O'Korn in spring ball I suspect Shane will transfer elsewhere.

Speight probably stays.

Malzone....not sure about this.  We haven't heard much about him all season.

Gentry....intriguing prospect that, if he stays at QB, is probably not ready to challenge for another two years.

Peters needs to stay in Harbaugh's hip pocket for a year or two and should develop into a star.

 

So, after O'Korn (who hasn't played a down for UM) its a significant question mark. 

Let Hill and O'Korn battle for 1 and 2.  One of Speight/Morris/Malzone won't be here next season.  Peters redshirts and Gentry seasons a bit.
