No way.  If Bama was to lose this weekend, they would still get in, even if they don't make the SEC Ship or lose a second game.  They only use SOS when it benefits them.  They will use the "eye test" and say Bama is better than M or whoever they jump.  M needs Georgia and LSU to have multiple loses and BAMA walk through the SEC.  If SOS was such a big deal for the playoff committee, they would not have Bama #1 and ND #4 behind a 1 lose SEC school.

09/13/2018 - 2:52pm I want to see a vanilla…

I want to see a vanilla offense, no special trickery out of the playbook.  But I would also like to see a more balanced offensive attack.  Get some good solid reps for the OL against actual competition instead of just in practice as well as see Shea and the WR get in to some kind of sync out there.  There are going to be games where we cant just line up and run the ball 2/3 of the time with continued success.  I want to see basic drop backs and show this improvement in route running and pass blocking that we heard about all off season. 

09/04/2018 - 1:53pm What Caliber of coach is he…

What Caliber of coach is he exactly?  He hasn't won a damn thing, at Stanford or here.  You keep saying at his caliber, so what is it?  A coach that will finish 2nd-5th in the conference every year?  Hell, might as well bring Hoke back, you can save 2/3 of his salary/year to get those kind of results.  You act like he is some elite coach, but he has never sustained any success.  Had one good year @ Stanford, has 2 decent years here out of 8 years coaching.  He is being paid at an elite level, elite results should be the expectation and reality.  You can pay any young up and coming coach 1/3 of his salary and get the same W/L results.

You Tube TV

Its $40 a month, and you get all the locals, plus the ESPN's, BTN, Fox sports and others.  I "share" it with 3 other people (you can have up to 6 accounts), each account can have up to 3 simultaneous viewings going but can be logged on to unlimited devices.  You have an unlimited amount of DVR that is saved for 9 months.   My last cable bill was north of $200 for Direct TV before I made the switch, and even if I don't share the responsibility of the monthly costs, after internet I am cutting that monthly expense in half.  Then I just share Netflix, Hulu and HBO go with others and there isn't much I am missing.

The Durango, not the wife...

I bought a new Durango last year and because of an ongoing joke with my wife (then fiancé), I named her Becky cause she has a big ole butt.

04/24/2018 - 8:50am Agree with TELDAR

I second what TELDAR said.  His visit did not go well, he left with a bad taste in his mouth.  He is in my area, and i have connections with his family.  His sister was a D1 volleyball player at WMU.  Wisconsin was his dream school since the first time i met him as a Frosh.  It was going to be an uphill battle, but his visit did not help.  It will be a very tall mountain to climb to get him in this class.

01/19/2018 - 7:53am Not wrong

He's not wrong.  M has won once since 2004, and 1/2 of those games were more than a one score game.  It was during the Woody and Bo era, and the Carr and Tressel era, but this game has lost some of its edge because of the sprial M has been on in this series.  Until M starts winning some, don't even have to go on a streak, but start splitting the games, it is hard to argue with that.

01/09/2018 - 8:37am Things I noticed

Both of the teams have generally the same identity, or try to as M.  A strong D, and win the line of scrimmage on O.  But they do it way differently.

-Even though their concept was still to run the ball, they did it out of multiple sets, spread the D out more and then still went with the run

-Against that same point though, they both knew each other would try to stop the run, so to start the game the threw a lot of lateral quick passes to get the D to spread out more to open up the middle for them. 

A lot of creativity in the sets without losing their identity which was nice to see.

Jeebus, Dabo won the conference in his first full season and in his 3rd, we have yet to sniff better than third in the division.  Also, Dabo was a position coach prior to coaching there, JH had the resume of what he did at Stanford and SF.  To expect JH to go through the same pains as Dabo is ridiculous.  It is not an even handed comparison, JH already had a stacked deck for him with his coaching experience and resume.  He is paid at an elite level with Urbs and Satan, we should expect elite results.

01/03/2018 - 9:07am D-bo

We should quit comparing JH to D-bo.  D-bo first year was a interim partial year that he took over for little Bowden, he also won the ACC in his 2nd year as well has his 4th* year which was actually his 3rd season as the head coach.  JH hasnt accomplished that yet, still not better than 3rd in the division.  Also, D- bo didnt have the resume JH had, that was his first ever head coaching gig, he was only a position coach up to that point.  JH was put up on a pedestal and labeled as elite with the likes of Urbs and Saban, to now not expect those types of results is the problem.

08/04/2017 - 11:49am Love it

Love the Block M with the wings hidden in it.  Also love the jumpman on the back.  It is not the dominant feature of the back of the shirt and it does not block any of the schedule, just adds a little more to it.  Now if they can make these in drifit so that they dont shrink weird or fade that would be perfect. 

04/08/2016 - 1:46pm They used to

Michigan used to.  I remember as a kid going to watch Webber, Jalen, Vashon Leonard and a few others.  I think they played Indiana.  It was a route from the tip, but very entertaining.  It was played at GRCC. 

01/29/2016 - 4:54pm Pudding

Proof is in the pudding.  Wyoming Public Schools did nothing when it happened.  They didnt take any action until the next day after watching the video when they fired him for using "excessive force".  That was in the original article that was posted before being updated.  This school is right in my neighborhood though I choose to send my daughter to another one in the area.  I have a lot of friends that are backing him that are linked to this school district cause he was a great role model.  Riley has always had violent occurences.  Years ago after his stint in the NFL he would frequent the Grand Rapids night clubs and I witnessed and heard about multiple occasions where he would lay someone much smaller than him out just cause of a look or someone would bump into him and spill his drink.  It came to a point where he was not allowed in a lot of the local establishments.  If he just tossed the kid to the ground to calm him down, no way would that cause bruising on his back like the medical records are showing according to Wood TV.  No one will really know what happened for sure until the video comes out but I would not want a school official to ever handle my child like that.

Haha been a reader for years, just never comment...good to see a fellow GHHS in here...

07/01/2015 - 1:19pm Was a Wolverine

Went to Godwin, helmets just like UofM, same colors and everything.  We were above average when I was there but after I left won 1 game through 3 years.  Basketball was a different story, 2015 class B state champs.  Were state ranked when I was there as well but never made a deep run.

09/17/2013 - 2:35pm Ok so by what you are saying,

Ok so by what you are saying, when M plays the Akrons (App St) of the world we should not expect the coaches to have the team fully ready for a battle, with a full playbook, but just expect cause "We are Michigan" that we should roll by 30-40 points and come out with a small playbook.  Yeah that has worked out well in the past.  The coaches should gameplan and have the players ready for a 60 minute battle every single week, this is not 30 years ago where the helmet spotted us 10 points and playing a non-BCS school automatically meant a 30+ point win.  You would think week 1 of this season would have opened everyones eyes up if App St didnt. 

03/24/2011 - 2:19pm That would be nice to see

But what, that has happened once so far in his coaching career, it isnt like that is the every year occurrence.  Prior to last year, in his last 5 years at Ball State and his other year at SDSU he has had a player other than QB go over 1000 yards 3 times combined(2 WR, 1 RB).  So that is a blind squirrel finding a nut, more than the norm.  Actually the year before, his leading rusher had what 559 yards????  Sounds like real MANBALL to me.
