If Fields becomes eligible immediately with his preposterous claim of hardship from a perceived slight while at GA then the floodgates for transferring will be wide open

As did I at Underground Printing this past Saturday before we went to the soccer match at the big house...also bought a t-shirt there...nice.  I've been enjoying the HTTV publication very much.

but I'll take a stab at an commit/play at Stanford the player has to be admitted there (not an easy prospect for potential players at Stanford) so Herron is keeping his spot at UM in case he's not admitted there?  I'm guessing he won't know until late fall.

I'm with you though, if he stays committed and M has a great season, he might stay committed. Fingers crossed for this fall.

is the term I dream to hear when folks are talking about our offensive line...make it so Jim. It was almost always so when I watched M during the 70s, 80s and 90s

May be wishful thinking by me. I’m hoping it was an aberration?

04/04/2018 - 1:42pm Aberration

Those Loyola bad passes seemed more fluky than anything...if he could develop a pull-up jumper and a better 3 pt shot along with improving his free throws those passing lanes would open up

04/04/2018 - 1:38pm Yes

please...from high school video info he looks like a 2 just as much as a 1

The Villanova team that just finished off Kansas is scary good. M MUST hit shots on Monday or watch out. Maybe M matches up better than K u does...let’s hope

If he were coach of UM today, might he go for the Livers/Poole look?

is the guy spewing the most BS...seemed like McElroy shut him down pretty hard.  Biggest point was why would JH leave his alma mater in the lurch after just 3 years to coach at UCLA or the Chicago Bears for that matter.  They know nothing about JH.

11/20/2017 - 11:25pm Finebaum

can't decide if Harbaugh would leave M because he's a "restless guy" or if he'd be fired because M "fans" are supposedly up in arms about not winning "enough".  Sheesh

11/16/2017 - 12:24am Charlotte, NC

where I live is a go for M at Wisco noontime on Fox (network, not FS1)  I might venture up to Tavern on the Tracks this week though as I'm a bit fatalistic about this game

11/04/2017 - 7:46pm Except

for last year (and 2012) you’re correct, maddeningly so

11/04/2017 - 7:36pm Grudgingly,

have to agree...

09/27/2017 - 12:16pm Interesting

Let's say Drevno and Frey were hired away from M (assumption being for head coaching jobs) and Harbaugh had to hire and OL dude and further let's say he wanted question is would he leave San Diego for AA?  Now I love me some AA, don't get me wrong but San Diego is one of the few places I'd have trouble leaving for greener pastures (if I lived there).  No doubt he'd make much more $ at M and have more national exposure but if he's making a great living at SDSU as OL coach (he almost certainly isn't) would he leave?  He probably would.  

Oh well, it's moot anyway because if Drevno is a HC candidate then that means M's OL is kicking butt and then Frey would be promoted in all likelyhood.  I don't want to think of the circumstances where the M OL stinks badly enough that Harbaugh fires Frey and Drevno...ugh.

Tl;dr: Drevno and Frey are the Line coaches for the foreseeable future so the idea of getting Schmidt is moot.

09/27/2017 - 12:05pm Blocking

I wish the UM football team located in Ann Arbor, MI would be better/more consistent at the blocky stuff.  Can I get a "testify"?

09/26/2017 - 4:15pm Never

will I be able to remember his real first'll always be "Doug" for me.  Sorry James.

09/26/2017 - 4:12pm Really

would be great to see the receiver have to do a "fair catch" on the goal line huh?

09/26/2017 - 4:09pm Ha

I'm ashamed that I DID know he's on the team and was doing a great job on kickoffs.  Don't tell my boss....

As a rule, I don't watch any NBA regular season games.  When I do watch the NBA, it's always the playoffs.  Stay thirsty my friends....

06/09/2017 - 1:34pm In at the buzzer

I've gotten the preview "book" every year it's been produced and loved it every time even when my optimism level was "extremely low".  Brian and crew never disappoint.  I don't know why I waited until the last minute this year.

03/31/2017 - 2:26pm Mr. pain

You sir, are a walmart wolverine!!  Just so you know, Sparties hate people like you; people like me love you and are glad you've become a fan.  Hail!!

03/31/2017 - 2:21pm Great fan

EastCoast, you are 4 or 5 times the M fan that I am.  I can't remember the last away game I went to...probably was the 1985 UM v Iowa game in Iowa City with my roommates when I was a was painful. I've been to many home football games over the years but my wife and kids aren't that interested in going with me (she went to UNC) so I've kinda stopped going.

As far as trying to convert friends and family, I've had little luck...if anything they're turned off by my annoying personality during the games (I'm usually grouchy from kickoff to final gun), so I watch the games alone (usually via DVR).

Because I grew up in suburban Detroit, I've never had a pro football team to trust my fandom to so I've let my friends convert me to become a Carolina Panthers fan.

stays?  I hope so because if Lester wants him then he'll have him.  WMU is like Nebraska in that way....


10/20/2016 - 3:44pm Love this team

Hi all, usually I'm an avid reader of almost every word of this blog then I leave satisfied and without comment but after this game vs Rutgers (still can't believe they're in the Big Ten) I have to put in my two cents. I agree with MGrowOld (full disclosure, I'm old too...UM '86) that I'm not seeing it with Speight (maybe I'm still skeptical of any Borges QB recruit) and I'm not sure he can become good enough this year for this team to compete in the CFP...I hope I'm "wrong, wrong, wrong"...;)  

Don't get me wrong, I trust Harbaugh implicitly for sure but I'd personally like to see some more of O'Korn out there. This defense is championship caliber for certain but I was very disturbed by M's offense at Rutgers before Peppers ripped off the 63 yd run.

The QB position and the OLine are certainly the limiting factors on this team...come on Jimmy, get Speight to the next level!!

07/08/2016 - 1:19pm Agreed

We can't understand how one can put oneself in bad situations (or say stupid things) over and over in real life, but isn't that kind of the basis for most tv shows? Jesse was stupid show after show in BB but that set one of the foundations of the story. Oh well, to each his own.

All the above might be's all a matter of personal taste.

Turnovers please? That could be the miracle...we're saving them all up for The Game. Can't remember the last meaningful turnover we've gotten from an opponent, it's frustrating to watch. Just think how good this team would be with a better TO margin.

would be "taking up a roster spot" only if he comes in, wins the job then gets hurt and can't play the rest of the year.  

Don't you think it'd be exciting to have Hill go in the game periodically (instead of Peppers, who I'm not sure can be spared from the Defense next year if he gets hurt running the ball on O) to run a couple of designed run/pass plays?  Question is would Hill want to come to UM under that condition.

10/20/2015 - 9:18pm Possibly important detail

Fisher is a good coach but he's a southerner (went to Samford (Alabama)) and I doubt he'd "fit" in Southern California and in the homes of recruits, don't you agree?  I mean, RR was labeled a hick by all the bad fans and trolls the first day he hit AA...I think a guy named Jimbo would be grilled hard unless he won big in the first year...sad to say that but I think it's reality.

Also, why would he really leave FSU for USC...that's a lateral move IMO and he's on the right side of things with his divorce (he didn't pull a Petrino) so he'll be fine socially there.

10/20/2015 - 9:05pm I'm sure

all the ladies who are readers of this blog (and all women who love UM) would like to see that happen.  He could be here in MI for the summer and football season, then head back down under in mid January every year just in time for high summer there, then be back in MI for the wonderful Michigan summers.
