09/11/2012 - 4:18pm Well, to say it was supposed

Well, to say it was supposed to be RR's fifth year is presumptious given the timing of the contract signing. I think that was his point.

03/11/2012 - 6:41pm The only time "BEAT OHIO"

The only time "BEAT OHIO" doesn't sound dumb.

02/15/2012 - 6:28pm And Alabama's defense loses

And Alabama's defense loses Dre Kirkpatrick, Mark Barron, Dont'a Hightower, Courtney Upshaw, Jerrell Harris, Josh Chapman and DeQuan Menzie. Their replacements will almost surely be good by season's end. In the opener? Iffy.

02/13/2012 - 10:02am College basketball is about

College basketball is about March, not February. When Beilein gets Michigan to the Final Four, it will be his best team ever.

02/08/2012 - 2:28pm William Gholston is 6'7",

William Gholston is 6'7", 280. Is that so much different?

02/07/2012 - 7:04pm The OP doesn't even

The OP doesn't even acknowledge college basketball. What a turd.

02/07/2012 - 7:02pm The OP said he was not

The OP said he was not related to Norm. Do you know what nepotism is?

02/07/2012 - 4:43pm Why do we still say guys are

Why do we still say guys are in line for redshirts after what we have seen with freshman contributions in recent years (and in the shocking cases of Desmond Morgan and Ray Vinopal, actually starting)? Maybe if you are an O-Lineman but that's it.

Brian has deemed several guys "obvious redshirts" in his official recruit bios of guys that played in year one. Nobody knows.

Can I work out a deal where if I vote for him I can see one game with no four-guard lineups?

You linked to MLIVE which linked to ESPN. Annoying.

02/07/2012 - 4:23pm Tai Streets was nowhere near

Tai Streets was nowhere near a great receiver in '97. He had a broken finger or something that hurt his production.

He had a big Rose Bowl. He was not much of a threat in the regular season.

02/07/2012 - 12:22am Going on memory and not

Going on memory and not numbers, my impression of Herrmann's defenses in one word: 1997-otherworldy, 1998-meh, 1999-decent, 2000-horrible, 2001-respectable, 2002-disappointing, 2003-good, 2004-horrific, 2005-awful

02/06/2012 - 3:03pm This excites me greatly and

This excites me greatly and it has nothing to do with me liking Jim Herrmann.

02/06/2012 - 2:42pm Both ads make Detroit look

Both ads make Detroit look extremely self-important.

If I was an out-of-towner, I'd scoff for sure.

02/06/2012 - 11:20am You don't need three capable

You don't need three capable quarterbacks, you need two. A third very rarely plays out of pure necessity.

02/06/2012 - 9:58am This is a great point and one

This is a great point and one that has already occurred to me. People negging it are being dumb.

I personally don't believe THJ's regression and his father being around more is a coincidence. If you read that Daily article last year about the dynamics of their relationship, it might make sense to you. THJ starting playing better in high school when his dad eased up.

02/06/2012 - 9:06am Hey look everybody! It's

Hey look everybody! It's another small, trite story that's giving someone a good reason to take a holier-than-thou position. God bless message boards and the 24/7 news cycle!

02/06/2012 - 3:28am Braylon didn't say "Lloyd

Braylon didn't say "Lloyd Carr's University of Michigan" to be different. He said it to be a dick.

Terrible original post.

Kenpom is so overrated in these parts.

Spring practice is still the offseason, pal.

02/04/2012 - 4:02pm I didn't say it WAS ample

I didn't say it WAS ample evidence. Re-read my post.

It is merely one of several tea leaves that suggests this kid is on the take.

02/04/2012 - 3:51pm I know OSU is hated but we

I know OSU is hated but we shouldn't really be rooting for Wisconsin. Finishing ahead of OSU in the standings is unlikely whereas Wisconsin is dead even with us both record-wise and is, at best, even on talent and potential.

I want as high a seed as possible, both in the BTT and the Big Dance.

02/04/2012 - 3:48pm He's nothing like Griffin.

He's nothing like Griffin. People are afraid to say it, but the best comparison to him is Corliss Williamson with a couple more inches. He'll be considered a big bust if he's drafted in the top 5.

Jordan Taylor currently with a slight lead on William Buford in the quest to be recognized as the Big Ten's most overrated player.

02/04/2012 - 3:04pm People love snappy sarcasm

People love snappy sarcasm and contrived, whimsical humor here more than they like legit information-seeking or passionate opinion.

It's a board of guys who seem like they really want to co-write a film with Wes Anderson.

 

02/04/2012 - 3:01pm That sounds very fishy.

That sounds very fishy. Especially when there was still a semester left of a high school to enroll in this core class when the decommit happened not to mention a whole summer to take a correspondence course before Fall at UM.

02/04/2012 - 3:28am College basketball isn't my

College basketball isn't my favorite sport but it's really hard to beat March Madness.

02/04/2012 - 2:26am My comment that OSU insiders

My comment that OSU insiders had insinuated the kid was looking for a payday was deleted. Is this against board policy?

I would hardly ever accuse a kid of being on the take without ample evidence and I think that's cheap. But this really is one of the most obvious cases I have ever seen.

02/04/2012 - 12:02am I've seen him with much

I've seen him with much better. Guy definitely seems like he's going to have that "monogamy is for suckers" attitude that any young, smart athlete should.

02/04/2012 - 12:00am "THROOOOW IT

"THROOOOW IT BAAAACK!"

Failing to get multiple footballs for Denard and Matthew Stafford to throw into the crowd may not be a good early indicator of Tom Gores' willingness to spend cash.

02/03/2012 - 11:39pm O'Keefe never impressed me as

O'Keefe never impressed me as a play-caller. Certainly not NFL material.

It's amazing how often new head coaches want to surround themselves with friends.

Dolla Dolla Dolla Dollas bills, y'all.

02/03/2012 - 6:31pm It's a total joke. Okie State

It's a total joke. Okie State loses Weeden AND Blackmon. Clearly common sense trumps this lame statistical projection.

Talking derisively about a guy because he's preparing for the Super Bowl.

That's aloof even for Cook.

This fucking sucks. No other way to say it.

02/03/2012 - 3:36pm Where the hell did all the

Where the hell did all the insider pessimism come from? Just a few days ago when all the experts online were making their predictions, Diamond to Michigan was a pretty uniform pick.

They also said Garnett to Stanford even though all the tea leaves said us and they got it right. If Diamond to Michigan doesn't happen it is going to SUCK.

02/02/2012 - 1:34am You threw in the towel pretty

You threw in the towel pretty quick on a remotely intellectual discussion, didn't you? Must have been scary when PurpleStuff brought out those fact thingies.

she loves it the same way I love a Wordsworth poem--its pastoral and quaint and full of itself all at the same time

Who TALKS like that?

02/01/2012 - 10:55pm If every incident in which

If every incident in which Urban Meyer appeared to be telling a little fib was thread-worthy, there wouldn't be a whole lot of other topics to discuss. Let's pick our battles.

02/01/2012 - 8:37pm The fact that this is a hot

The fact that this is a hot thread doesn't say a whole lot about the MGoBoard.

Neither is "Ohio." Anybody who gets upset about either one is a sucker.

This douche knows he would have two years without Denard and three if his waiver isn't granted, right?

On what service?

02/01/2012 - 3:07am Johnson's hips and cutting

Johnson's hips and cutting ability aren't in the same galaxy as Norfleet.

There is a reason Norfleet's most impressive non-UM offer is from Tennessee and Drake's is from EMU.
