|10/19/2018 - 1:56pm||echo the 'diversity' in…||
echo the 'diversity' in preparation idea...yeah weights are good, but most young kids aren't ready to develop true muscle mass, so the focus should be on form, and strengthening connective tissue, not mass gain. Higher reps, lower weights...and a complete failsafe... see the Herschel Walker routine, push ups, sit ups, crunches. That's all you need. Mixed in with basketball, wrestling, baseball, soccer, any running activity that emphaises different muscle use, cutting, shifting, balance.
The more different things he can do, the better. Watching Boston last night they focused on Mookie Betts. He made a huge leaping grab, and they talked about how he could dunk a ball at 5'10" played a number of sports in high school, and was exceptional at all of them. In my 30 years in education...the best athletes are the best in everything...our best qb who played D1 Notre Dame...still holds records in track, basketball, football...you name it. Be active, be diverse...and the Michigan way...focus on academics first. The number one next level killer is not keeping up in school...assuming you want to play somewhere other than OSU or alabama I guess.
|10/17/2018 - 10:52pm||speculating that Gary…||
speculating that Gary somehow is being withheld or choosing to refuse a return to play in order to guarantee his NFL payday...yeah I'm not seeing that from a young man of his ability and perceived character. I assume...yep big leap I know...he came to UM on the concept of academics and opportunity in that order. I believe a distinguished professor played a bigger role in his recruitment than any football coach.
Watching his ability I also assume his chances of a healthy opportunity with the NFL are pretty high. Personally with everything that just went down in the last draft, I don't see sitting out as a streamline path to big money NFL payday, rather it seemed like teams were very hesitant to take a chance on a player with potential long term and even short term physical risk.
In the end, and yet again why I am so against paying players for any reason at the NCAA level...he joined the UM football team and academic program with the intent of being a student first, and athlete second. He can continue academics without football and Universities offer a medical hardship extension to their agreement for that very reason. If that is a decision he makes...GOOD FOR RASHAN...I think he has upheld his end of the agreement and played admirably for UM. He has drawn national attention to our program and done everything asked of him. He owes the University nothing...they owe him nothing. They TYPICALLY in good standing will continue him to pursue a degree. If he decides to leave for the NFL good luck to him.
I'd prefer he remains with the football team, but football is brutal, he knows it, he has every right to think about his own health and well being. It's pretty simple.
|10/15/2018 - 1:44pm||I am 100% fine with Hart's…||
I am 100% fine with Hart's performance AND lack of national attention...means A) he's doing his job (and really good at it) for the purpose of doing his job not attention...and B) The offense is doing their job (and getting better and better at it every week) for the purpose of doing their job so he doesn't have a chance to do his job...so Will Hart...GOOD JOB.
|10/14/2018 - 6:02pm||He's 19?20? He has a booming…||
He's 19?20? He has a booming leg, and still getting better...I guess see if you can walk on and take his job!! So many people want immediate change because we didn't win by 100... seriously take a breath enjoy the win and stop analyzing a lack of perfection from kids. I'll take Quinn as our kicker any day kid is a legit stud and will continue to develop
|10/14/2018 - 11:51am||Higdon is right...because…||
Higdon is right...because those are his guys, they opened holes, and I'd expect nothing less than that comment from a true team player...that is a sign of the attitude in the locker room and more telling than any stat line. I said it after ND...people need to calm the hell down, let the team develop let the program develop, and harbaugh will get it right. Can't change every four years and ever expect it to be good. Meyer walked into a good thing and it's starting to show
|10/12/2018 - 3:09pm||Have to be fair, the over…||
Have to be fair, the over-pursuit thing wasn't wrong, that was part of his issue vs. ND this year. Also to be fair, he was fired up, aggressive as hell, and it took about a play or two...maybe a few more to adjust and shut it down. Love the kid at DE, glad he was 'undervalued' out of HS as he became our defensive gem with little difficulty. The star hype is nothing more than a guideline, what you do with that kid from there is all that really matters. He's matured into a likely first round pick somewhere. I have no issue with pointing out flaws, it's the only way you get better and overcome. Probable at the HS level over-pursuit wasn't as big of a problem as he could just run the offensive player down with superior athleticism
|10/12/2018 - 8:22am||weather became an issue when…||
weather became an issue when I can watch it in 4K HD on a 60" screen for half the cost of a game anymore...so...glad your TV driven prime time marketing has helped many people say F this...every perk has a cost...stop crying.
|10/12/2018 - 8:18am||might have to do with the…||
might have to do with the fact...not everyone enjoys the inconvenience of night games...just maybe. I know the loud and vocal minority who do seem to think every game should be at night because the SEC haz it all...but it's not ideal in 30 degree weather. Just one perspective.
|10/12/2018 - 8:15am||whoa...WHOA there fishbulb…||
whoa...WHOA there fishbulb...are you saying we are supposed TO THINK FOR OURSELVES and make rational decisions about sources, and not consider a post pure truth and gospel???? you sir...are out of control /S yeah there are more than a few paranoia mongers here who feel any contrarian post MUST be the enemy or some sort of multiple user account troll...instead of you know...looking at a topic title and say...moving on. Thanks for the OT. Sometimes the obvious simply needs to be stated over and over.
|10/11/2018 - 7:20am||so really is it the chicken…||
so really is it the chicken or the egg with him? Yeah I 100% agree drugs will destroy a person...but did he turn to the drugs as part of the CTE/head injury, whatever is going on? Not one to generally 'blame' or look for an excuse but his seems to be by the book one thing led to another...who knows, sad any way you look at it.
|10/10/2018 - 10:26pm||a lot of it is lack of neck…||
a lot of it is lack of neck and shoulder strength while still carrying a lot of speed. Contact happens, hitting or not, it's a fast game and with a small object and objective, it happens.
|10/10/2018 - 10:25pm||wow...honestly, I read the…||
wow...honestly, I read the header, first thought was the typical...blah blah rich pro athlete squanders millions and now blames something else...yeah couldn't be more wrong after reading that one. Just sad to see a guy who played at such a high level, literally reduced to a shell of memories. Stuff like this makes me really question contact sports as a whole. I think it's worse that his family, teammates etc have even tried to help and he refuses it...that's the scary thing. It's not as if he's burned his bridges and left himself here. Just wow.
|10/10/2018 - 5:35pm||or like the police providing…||
or like the police providing an escort for our football team leaving MLK high school post Regional football game...wasn't requested, they insisted. Mid afternoon in what looked like a ghost town.
|10/10/2018 - 5:31pm||Bingo...think about the…||
Bingo...think about the money being spent to replace seats to hide the problem...cost. INSTEAD...if they say...LOWER ticket prices by the same 'cost' to the team...maybe they have long term sales instead of immediate cost, that may in the end result in further cost as fewer and fewer people attend. I went to a couple games at the joe, it was fun to watch...but affording that trip on a regular basis. Hell no. I can buy a 4K tv and enjoy far more than Hockey, no wait for a restroom, and food/beverages, no parking fees...same satisfaction.
|10/10/2018 - 5:24pm||I sit in section 8 …||
I sit in section 8 seats 26 and 27 and I am in the dead middle of the row where the bench bends, and to my right as I face the field is seat 1, section 7. So seat 1 in section 8 would be an entire section away. Guess you could gamble that someone next to your aisle seats would trade two seats and still have essentially the same view...however 7/8 are mostly alum, and good friends, many like myself have had those seats 30+ years...so...
|10/09/2018 - 7:23pm||School of kinesiology has…||
School of kinesiology has one of the world's foremost experts in house, Steven Broglio...spent many hours emailing and talking with him. He has worked with UM sports, NFL, MLB, you name it. Pretty sure UM has it as good as anyone in determining and treating concussion symptom, or possibility

Correct 100% alum student athlete is and forever connected as a booster. It's not a difficult concept.

Unless reporters have THE actual playbook in hand and fully understand it...opinions are like assholes...
|10/07/2018 - 10:33am||it's the generation of…||
it's the generation of social media muscle heads...talk tremendous shit behind a screen name or two, and likely think their prowess on NCAA 16 with dozens upon dozens of xbox nattys...(yeah why not, seems to be the same crowd using that moronic term...) knows more about football than Harbaugh has forgotten. I'd go so far as to say their illustrious 7th grade careers, likely cut short simply because 'coaches kid got to start over me so I said fuck it' mentality drives their understanding of Michigan...
Flat out, the program has endured and suffered from a lot of change and instability. I personally see a lot of progress and pieces slowly fitting together, and it will take perhaps another season or two to fully return to 10 wins is the norm football. Of all fan bases, Michigan *see Beilein, has shown through it's basketball team, we can go from basement level crap to national title contender, with time, consistent coaching, and a little bit of luck now and then. We SHOULD beat MSU but that's never a given. We CAN beat PSU, at home will help. WE SHOULD beat OSU, all chips in, everyone healthy, and a maximum effort rivalry game. If not, the season and team isn't lost, it's just another step forward and it will right itself. Just need time.
|10/07/2018 - 9:19am||straight to number 1! screw…||
straight to number 1! screw bama...we can beat anyone.../S the day I worry about what our ranking is...the day winning football games is no longer important. We aren't there just yet.
|10/06/2018 - 7:27pm||100% true...clavicle is one…||
100% true...clavicle is one of if not the easiest bone to fracture, just due to size and location/lack of protective tissue/muscle. The tip of the scapula is one of the most difficult areas to fracture and almost required massive force trauma to accomplish. With Gary, and pure speculation based on limited information...it's most likely a shoulder separation or deep bone bruise/deep shoulder dislocation. The AC joint is relatively unstable, which also allows more range of motion. It's a trade off. It's something where if he's truly needed, they can pad and brace it, and he can deal with the pain, may cause more issues short term but post season surgery would likely fix it if that is what is going on. Just sucks because he uses his hands/shoulders so much controlling the line of scrimmage.
|10/04/2018 - 9:53pm||while some of those were …||
while some of those were 'some of the worst programs..' we also played Miami (FL) Florida State, Colorado, Washington, Boston College, to name a few and at that point, or at least at the time they were set to schedule...they were a top tier team and put up one hell of a game. ND had the likes of Rocket Ismail, Tim Brown, we played some TOUGH and challenging opponents instead of propping up MACtion with ticket sale donations in exchange for a close game and maybe even...a loss...
Personally, it's the crazy high cost of attending a game, the constant whoring of our fans to TV programming for 3:30 or 7:30/8:00 PM games...screw that. 1:00 pm kick off...football, kids playing a game, students can roll out of bed, have their drink for the alcoholics on the board, and go back to parties after the game...too much of a day is taken up by this media driven monster. And maybe not many of you...but some students do actually study after a game...and even some during a game when I was there, books in hand in the stands, actually reading at half time/time outs...more than one or two as I recall...the time and the game have gone full commercial, and throwing money at kids is no solution, catering to the whims of TV times is not making it better. I have had season tickets for the better part of 30 years, I'm reaching a point it's no longer worth it.
|10/04/2018 - 8:05am||having played, and coached,…||
having played, and coached, yes there is a LOT to the execution and practice of plays that can flip the dime. Adrian HS back in their day, ran a very simple base offense, ran a handful of plays to perfection and trucked teams. They executed to perfection and it seemed impossible to stop them.
It's also fair to say if you have Shea Patterson trying to play drop back 7 step pocket passer...it doesn't fit with his talent. He CAN do it, but seems far more accurate and explosive on a swing or roll, allows him to see his targets better, and his movement allows him to flow to the pass...it's just the type of QB he is and it looks like UM is starting to utilize it better, the line is starting to understand what they need to do for him, and he's using instinct and repetition now. Same with Denard...dude was special, not a drop back pocket guy. McCaffrey seems to be that pro style drop back, and can take off and run kind of guy...the future looks bright.
|10/04/2018 - 8:00am||so sad...happens more than…||
so sad...happens more than most would believe. So unfortunate. Crazy routine surgery.
|10/03/2018 - 3:16pm||JohnRoss, no I personally…||
JohnRoss, no I personally don't and I didn't take it as a knock....I've seen him play a few downs this season, the kid is a pretty accurate and strong passer. Given the level of talent OSU has at WR and really across the board, I'd rather take away/shut down deep passes which would quickly turn into scores and hope our linebacker play, and the occasional pressure/sack could keep our offense in it. PSU did an excellent job right up until...well it mattered you could say. They forced so many punts and kept scoring until they shut themselves down and allowed OSU to make enough plays to win. Certainly with due respect, it will be a slugfest.
|10/03/2018 - 3:11pm||May be too late now, not a…||
May be too late now, not a huge baseball guy either. When the Tigers played in the World Series 06 and I knew phones were going to open up and offer tickets, I was ready...they had different numbers for each game, I guessed everyone wanted game 1, and the odds of game 6-7 were questionable as it may not go that many games...which it did not. I picked game 2 and secured two tickets, it was a great time, the atmosphere was cool, and we saw Kenny Rogers (NTKR) pitch the only win the Tigers managed vs. the Cardinals. Point truly being, it's worth the effort, if you can call in be strategic as you may only get one shot at it. If the tickets are already in the secondary market, I'd bet some will be available near game time or after the start of the game pretty cheap if you can take that risk.
|10/03/2018 - 3:06pm||AK yeah...I'd say there…||
AK yeah...I'd say there could be similar bias trying to keep Bama in "check" by screwing them...difference being, UM has been struggling for about...ten to twelve years, whereas Bama has NFL size and capable talent and can easily overcome a lack of penalties by you know...scoring touchdowns with two qbs who were both better than anything we've had in say...12 years.
|10/03/2018 - 8:02am||BELIEVE.||
|10/01/2018 - 10:26pm||WD, we WERE those grads…||
WD, *** just go back to walmart...you are now in over your head and have literally no understanding...I know you are passionate and feel some connection to the team with all of your merch and booklet things...just stop...sincerely...you have ZERO room to talk about what you endure...ZERO.
|10/01/2018 - 3:05pm||Cope I couldn't agree more…||
Cope I couldn't agree more on the PI in the end zone, and I am not a blinded fan...but that game, while we may have committed 90% of the 'CALLED' penalties, what bothers me is, did they need to call some of them, and if so, why didn't they call the same thing against Northwestern? And a step further, we seem to get called for PI, when a defender isn't looking back for the ball, MAYBE touches the receiver on some occasions, yet OSU is full on mugging, arm wrapped and pinning our receiver's arm in, hauling them to the ground before the ball is half way there...that is what bothers me more than anything, If you are going to call it by the book, call it both ways. Targeting is another...fine, protect the kids...but protect ALL of them not just ones which take a key defender off the field for one team...B1G officials are horrible. And it's not just one game sample...its' across the board in many instances.
|10/01/2018 - 12:29pm||BOOOOO....hate night games…||
BOOOOO....hate night games. Such a hastle. May end up selling these tickets. Stick to 330/1200.
|10/01/2018 - 11:26am||Expected loss because…||
Expected loss because northwestern was considered a weak team and took us to the ropes. If we lose that game, thinking we can beat msu psu with the way things have been in recent years looks dauting at best. Too many people get so defensive and freak out if someone predicts anything but undefeated national championship...get real folks, it happens.
|09/30/2018 - 3:53pm||I will undoubtedly be…||
I will undoubtedly be roasted for expressing nothing more than an observation/opinion...it has looked to me, vs current competition, we have remained very vanilla, RUN a lot of plays to strengthen/expose the offensive line, and see where improvements are being made and still need to be made when the games SORT OF don't matter as much. Frustrating as a fan? Sure...worth it when it matters? I think it will be. To me the glimpses of Collins and DPJ they look solid and seem to gain more and more confidence. Eubanks and Gentry are solid at TE in pass routes. For a fifth year guy...Perry looks lazy and unfocused. Maybe I just catch him at the wrong time, but it just sticks in my head, he isn't making that necessary catch when he needs to, and maybe he's just not being given the opportunity...not trying to slam the kid, I know he's a college player, I'm not going full on Braylon THE MOUTH Edwards...just saying I think DPJ and Collins are starting to rise above. Maybe Perry becomes a secret weapon in part of that big game plan...hard to tell from a bleacher seat no doubt. I've watched, played, coached a lot of football...so my opinion is just that...an opinion. Nothing more. I'd bet that others have a similar view, and if not...oh well, it won't be the last, it certainly isn't the first time I see things from a different angle. I can go on and on about Lllllloyd and Mike Hart too...though my thoughts are wildly unpopular with those whom Michigan football forces the tides.
|09/30/2018 - 8:37am||And that's where officials…||
And that's where officials stepped in and seemingly often do. Just when Michigan seemed to be gaining momentum a random penalty was called. Football is a game of surge. Northwestern was grinding us at first and while Michigan slowed them, it took a lot of sputtering to move the ball. We were in the stands and the crowd energy flowed with it. Refs can make it really easy for a team and really difficult or impossible.
|09/28/2018 - 4:59pm||not EVER? what if Peta could…||
not EVER? what if Peta could be kept at bay and we went back to a REAL living wolverine in a large cage, and as some have posted in the past...it was kept on the visiting sidelines throughout the game...
|09/28/2018 - 2:13pm||On a more serious note (or…||
On a more serious note (or question maybe?), what is it about NFL football that makes 30-60 year old white guys think they're tough and want to fight?
My experience attending a few NFL games in the past, and many many NCAA games in recent years, ALCOHOL is what drives these idiots into thinking they can and will fight anyone...Thus a primary reason selling alcohol at a college game is not a great idea, better ways to create revenue and not risk the consequences, no matter how few incidents there would be...it's not worth the PR and risk.
|09/27/2018 - 10:06pm||youn 2948, the kid did not…||
the kid did not last long at Michigan, he could not attend classes as expected at East whatever in a TV series, and now at UAB he appears to be under disciplinary difficulty once again...guilty or not, it's a bad look and a trend that doesn't speak well for his ability to figure it out. In contrast the kid who returned to Texas Tech seems to understand, it is my LAST CHANCE to figure it out, make the right choices, and fly under the radar even if it means finding different social groups or perhaps just avoiding things you KNOW will cause you issues.
Nope it's not a judgment of Kingston's character, but I've spent a few decades teaching in a middle school...walks like a duck, quacks like a duck...looks like a duck, the odds favor it's a duck. I hope Kingston finds a purpose in his life beyond football, either now, or in his near future. It's unfortunate he never seems to latch on to a program, but at some point he has to pull up big boy pants and make choices to succeed or find a different path. Our society is too soft, and no longer holds anyone accountable for their actions. The point of reasonable doubt and suspicion of guilt is lost on those who don't seem to shy away from it nor seem to figure it out. I can give ANYONE reason to make things right...you burn me again, and chances are I won't give you that same favor. Sorry if you have too much sympathy. Spend a few years in a middle school.
|09/26/2018 - 7:19pm||as a former non revenue…||
as a former non revenue athlete, FUCK YOU and Fargo...I put in as much damn time as any revenue athlete, I actually went to class instead of paying a cheerleader..yes it damn well did happen at Michigan, and likely still does. You PAY athletes, you better pay them all...it's because of football/NCAA Title IX balances that non revenue MALE athletes had far fewer scholarships...stop talking about shit you know ZERO about, other than your own personal football wins MOAR self-serving fucking attitude...it's NOT all about football, it's not all about making it even by paying every football player at any school...you have NO clue.
|09/25/2018 - 11:58am||fuck night games…||
fuck night games...especially against idiots in Lansing or Columbus...NOTHING good has come from night games at UM. All of you hoping and wishing...I hope you never see another one. They are a pain in the ass in Ann Arbor, and on the road, well...
|09/25/2018 - 11:54am||on that DPJ punt return…||
on that DPJ punt return...Peoples Jones better treat Glasgow to a steak dinner...Glasgow makes the key edge block driving a defender to the sideline and opening the cut inside...then follows the play backside and seals off the last possible defender who could have stopped the play at the three or four...as good as the run was, TWO key blocks, Glasgow...STUD...Hudson keeps taking himself out of games, he may never see viper again. And Glasgow family needs to have more MICHIGAN sons...
|09/24/2018 - 9:12pm||agreed...take care of our…||
agreed...take care of our own business, beat MSU/OSU, Wiskey, PSU...win out, and playoffs be damned...we should be there, if not, it's a great season and points to the future of M football. National title shots are nice...but I want to see progress in gameday outcome. The rest is just icing.
|09/24/2018 - 7:01pm||heading there for our first…||
heading there for our first game at an opponent's facitlity, Any suggestions on parking gameday? Coming in from Michigan, staying on the west side of town about 30 minutes off campus.
|09/24/2018 - 11:37am||Guessing you are younger…||
1606~Guessing you are younger than 40...those who are 50+ probably know...in most areas cartoons were for Saturday morning, and IF you had three to four functional tv channels life was good. We went OUTSIDE and socially interacted WITH OUT blogs, tweets, and the web...irony is, we didn't have a lot of the problems common today. We actually had jobs and were responsible and dependable. Something which seems to be absent in today's youth.
|09/23/2018 - 10:47am||my takeaways
-Ambry Thomas is special and continues to grow on special teams, defense, and all around. He will be a multi-purpose weapon throughout his Michigan career...his frame reminds me of a #1 long ago.
-DPJ is ready to show his projections. He is getting smarter at seeing lanes open, and he's gotten comfortable with Shea, and taking some hits, making the clutch catch. He will become our primary receiver when we need it most.
-Patterson is finding his groove, making good decisions with the ball, as often as a college qb in a new system should. He brings the offensive energy everyone said he had in the spring. He is a solid upgrade from Okorn/Speight. Peters still looks a little behind it, does a nice vanilla job.
McCaffrey is the future. If Shea stays, McCaffrey will continue to get better, and see more reps. If Shea takes NFL or MLB options, McCaffrey steps in and becomes a monster of a player at QB...he is what this program needs for a developmental perspective, recruit, grow, dominate.
O-line starting to look like it makes sense. Had some REALLY nice holes, moved the ball in short yardage situations. Against an elite D right now might be ugly, but I think in the next four or five weeks we start to see something happening positively as a unit.
Backs- Higgdon, coming into his own, Evans if healthy adds another dimension in space, and a different pace in the back field. Wilson is an excellent surprise who also adds another dimension of raw power/speed to the hole. He hits harder/faster than Higgdon from a zero cut style, he just runs through the hole, makes it difficult for the defense to read, and he's already second level. Mason, is becoming the bruising fullback we need on clutch short yard plays and pass block. We start mixing and matching some split back, which way is the ball going...that could be exciting.
Gary- the QB eating monster may not be logging record setting sack and TFL numbers but his presence on the line is everywhere. He's occupying blocks, PLURAL, gets to the edge in a hurry, and covers hash mark to numbers faster and more aggressively.
Bush, human wrecking machine. He reads and smashes offenses pretty well and just keeps getting better.
Winovich, again like Gary, just gets it done, strings plays out, reads, disciplined football.
secondary needs a little work, but for the most part, doing the job. Sorry, long plays and opponent scores are going to happen, even the bllind squirrel finds a nut...not worried about it.
kicking game, the punter has a hammer for a foot, the kick off can be placed pretty well anywhere and XP/field goals are at times remarkable, and others...wtf just happened...
overall, we are getting better week by week this team can be very good if they continue working forward, only a solid test against a good team will tell the whole story. Considering where we were week one, I'd say this is much better quality football. Not national title hopes just yet, but we have what it takes to be there.
|09/23/2018 - 10:29am||honestly, I think Frost is a…||
honestly, I think Frost is a good hire, I think he's a good coach, and it's his first year with other people's recruits. Who aren't very good at his game of football. Add to that we are on an upswing, and I still feel we don't know what we really have yet. I don't think it's all doom and gloom but we keep seeing improvements across the board, and we keep seeing our top players rise another level. Nebraska will be better than what we saw yesterday. Can't blame a guy for thinking he made a good hire and things will get better...like a lot of fans here the last few years, he just thought it would happen sooner than week three :)
|09/22/2018 - 11:19pm||I think a lot of folks are…||
I think a lot of folks are doing the same...and good for you and your wallet. What is speaks volumes to, access is better than ever as prices are higher than ever and outpricing the average fan. Many buy a season set to get marquee games, and to sell for profit. Gone is the day where season ticket holders were there to see...a season of Michigan football. Many still do, but it's becoming more the exception than the norm anymore.
|09/22/2018 - 10:59pm||wow...you almost sound like…||
wow...you almost sound like a guy who spent a large chunk of your life playing football in college and the NFL and know what the hell you are talking about.. (heavy sarcasm...) problem being your plan is far too logical for the NCAA to even remotely understand and implement. It's easier just to use as is, remove players when it might have the most impact on their revenue stream.
|09/22/2018 - 10:55pm||XM for me, and I think by…||
XM for me, and I think by response, a lot of fans the issue isn't so much weather it is the same or different, other than..if Michigan is being penalized, it seems to be called with frequency leading to ejection. If other teams make similar contact against a Michigan offensive player, it's not called.
What bothers me further..and perhaps the idiocy of HOW the penalty is described, and currently called...it is more of a punishment for some, and not for others rather than a true safety issue. If it is GENUINELY about student athlete safety, the targeting against Mason as shown in the tweet is certainly targeting. Driving the crown of a helmet directly against the side of another player's helmet is as if not more dangerous than the crown of a helmet hitting the ankle of an open field quarterback flopping on the ground...just my opinion on how this has affected us as a team.
By no means am I excusing Hudson, stop using the damn crown of your helmet...period.

and a great return it was...DPJ is getting better every week at reading the kicks. I know a lot of it is 'luck' from a standpoint of stars and blocks aligning, but he really looked like he was picking apart their return team on that one. Great team effort on the score. Feel bad for A. Thomas, he had a scoop six, that call still boggles the mind...return man was jacked, Thomas essentially picked it right off his shoulder, no bounce, no whatever...still called it back. Kid was robbed. He's electric on returns.

yep...though even years ago when they had sponsors supply FREE maize shirts, assholes grabbed hands full of them, and those who did grab one, either tucked it in a bag or sat on it...never seems to work out. Michigan fans are typically a special kind of arrogant. Honestly the best I've seen is the pom poms under the lights, that seemed to maize it out pretty well. Likewise Maize isn't a dominant color, even a handful of huskers who actually travel fairly well, wearing bright red will stand out in the crowd. We have too many people who are casual fans and would rather sell tickets to anyone, and make a dollar or two instead of enjoy the game atmosphere. Maybe for the good, maybe for the bad, we don't have what other stadiums seem to do with black out, white out red out...etc
