05/29/2018 - 12:30pm I feel you, and no sense in

I feel you, and no sense in beating a dead horse because we all know he's not coming back. I think beside me giving him his dues and propers, the bigger point was that we needed a recruiter who could appeal to "that" demographic. Sparty, OSU and Bama will always win those kids because they have recruiters and a perceived culture that speaks to them. Its pure marketing. I know their is a demographic that Partrige speaks to and one that Pep speaks to. The double edge sword is that Michigan is already perceived as the prim and proper ivy league type of school that parents and high academic minded athletes would really fall in love with. Hence we compete with Stanford, and Notre Dame for those guys and we win our fair share. Unfortunately the athletic freaks from the other side of the tracks, we dont appeal to as much because 1. we aren't winning like OSU and Bama and  2. some of those athletes are more interested in playing and being able to shine on ESPN, than putting in that work in the classroom that goes along with big-time college athletics.

 

I get it, and I think in a lot of cases, we go for the guys who we know will adjust to the rigorous demands of our academic standards and not all of those guys can balance it well enough. But there are guys who come from Inkster, King, Robichaud, Carmen-Ainsworth and other schools who make the grade and do very well (Tyrone Wheatley and Jourdan Lewis for example).  However we miss out on others because the mindset is, I dont want to work that hard, I just wanna play Football and be on TV.  I was saying that Wheatley and Jourdan Lewis types, speak to those guys because they have done it and have been very successful and have received big contracts in the NFL. To your point, I think Wheatleys RB's would have gotten better #'s with better OL play and a time proven system of developing them (continuity).  Althogh it appears that Jay Harb is doing a good job for not having coached RB's or playing the position himself, I dont think he's better suited for developing and preparing RB's for Saturday and Sunday than Wheat.

 

More importantly, is there a plan in place to bring in someone, or elevate someone like Bush to reach those kids? or have we written those kids off as "Thanks but not really our type"? No disrespect to anyone, I just love Michigan Football and want to see it back the way it was.

05/29/2018 - 8:44am I agree and said those exact

I agree and said those exact words when he left and also said it would be hard to replace what he brought to the table. I like the guy from Jersey and I thought they made a great 1-2 combination on the recruiting front.  Wheatley was the answer to OSU's Larry Johnson. A guy who players and and parents (particularly those kids from rough inner-city upbringings) could look at and relate to because he lived it. We need someone like that that has a swag that the kids feel. Pep may be good at what he does, but his swag doesn't translate well with that demographic because he's more like Obama than Deon Sanders, and trust me there is a difference (lol). 

I always thought that Bush senior would  move up and become "that" guy but perhaps he's busy doing more important things for the team (I really dont know) but he shares a lot of the same qualities in terms of his pedigree as Wheatley. He's a proven winner has street cred and looks the part. No knock on the Obama types like Pep, because they probably make great recruiters for the prim and proper Catholic/prep school kids but those angry, raw super athletic hard nose pit bull type guys relate better to guys like Wheatley. Someone send him a text and tell him we miss him and to please come back.     

05/29/2018 - 8:10am No shade on him, but best

No shade on him, but best football player to come out of Flint makes me think of Andre Rison.

05/21/2018 - 3:53pm "Detroit Players" both Ambry

"Detroit Players" both Ambry and DPJ will have break-out seasons

05/07/2018 - 3:27pm Definitely Penn State. We

Definitely Penn State. We need to get a little get back from those tree jumpers, when we ride on our enemies. 

04/27/2018 - 3:52pm I saw that one. its was

I saw that one. its was incredible how these guys were playing this music 3 years before the sex pistols.

04/26/2018 - 2:59pm Hard to argue with any of

Hard to argue with any of your lists. I think there are 5 or six that you cant list in any order because of their success past and present and I think there are newcomers to the scene that you can't rank above the body of work of someone like Izzo or Few. but here goes.

1. Coach K

2. John Calipari

3. Bill Self

4. Jay Wright

5. Roy Williams

6. Jim Boeheim

7. Tom Izzo

8. Mark Few

9. John Beilein

10. Bobby Huggins/Greg Marshall

Hon Mention: Smart, Mack, A. Johnson, Alford, Hurley, E. Cooley, Bennett, Painter . . .

04/26/2018 - 11:53am Thats a bit harsh. I think

Thats a bit harsh. I think Peters did a good job last year to not hurt the team, which is basically how our last 3 QB's have played, although some better than others. When he had to play against serious competition, he struggled to improvise and it was not enough to simply not make mistakes. 

I still believe that Peters has the potential to be a great Q.B. He just needs to get more experience and comfortable enough to make plays and safely improvise. When he does, look out, because he's physically got the tools. 

Lastly, We make too much out of the QB competion. Nowadays, you need two good QB's to make it through an entire season. I cant think of when the last time was, when we didn't need at least two QB's to finish a season. With that being said, we dont want a dramatic drop in quality from 1st to 2nd to 3rd string. The top 3 QB's will likely get an opportunity to play, during the course of the season. If you are great when they call your number, the coaches might decide to ride the wave and let you keep playing but most importantly, be ready.  

04/24/2018 - 3:10pm On one hand I think-how could

On one hand I think-how could anyone allow this guy to coach even a pick up game in the neighborhood and as much as I dislike all of the controversy surrounding him, I would love for UDM to get him. It would mean that UDM would quickly become elite in their conference as he would attract big-time talent.  I could see them makking frequent tournament appearances in a few years. Like him, or love him, he's a historically popular figure in the world of basketball and the city of Detroit could use some added excitement downtown.

04/23/2018 - 1:23pm OK I get it. You're saying

OK I get it. You're saying that ND punked out of their last game against Michigan, when it would have been in Ann Arbor and since they "punked out", the series should have resumed with us getting that game back in Ann Arbor or it should have at least been a 3 game series with two games in A.A. 

I get it, but of course, we have to look at things in the context of their timing:

First. ND was on a high as they had been cheating and had enjoyed some success so they were "reading their own press clippings". ND and Michigan have always been seen as "Midwest Ivy League" so they compete for the same type of players. ND saw this as an opportunity to take a shit on us, while closing the door on a falling dynasty and their biggest threat. ND got dat azz tapped against Bama that year. (I'm reminded of the story of Icarus) 

Second, we were in the middle of our struggles with winning games and finding the right guy to lead this team, so Michigan's entire football program lacked an identity and no one seemed to know which direction the program was headed. Not Brady Hoke, not Dave Brandon, so we were struggling with management and allowed this ugly frog to stand us up on prom night.

Third, when we did get our guy (Harbaugh) he quickly asserted himself over the entire football program and left little room about who was running the show. It wasn' t as much that we got swindled, but putting them back on the schedule (at any cost) puts us in a position to rub their noses in it because they tried to snub us into mediocrity, even though they really hadn't had enough success against us, to honestly believe they could do that to us to begin. 

Finally, its personal. I can't wait to see the #1 defense in American shut their asses out at home and put the CFB world on notice that Michigan, the winningest program of all time is back!!!  So as much as I want Ohio State, Harb and everybody else who bleeds blue knows that it's only fitting that we serve them punks up first, "As we ride on our enemies".     

03/21/2018 - 9:28am SVG is a great talent

SVG is a great talent evaluator. He's spot on in that department, however he cant coach the talent once he gets it. He has a reputation of constantly turning over talented player after talented player but never settling on a roster that actually wins. He's been associated with many of the games greatest players but very few won much with him at the helm. It's been time for him to go (as the head coach).  

02/23/2018 - 4:08pm I would say that they go on

I would say that they go on like business as usual. They get through the NCAA Tournament and sweep this under the rug during the off-season (nice and quiet-like).  Face it, there are just too many big time players and programs (both past and present) to start imposing any sanctions right now, if at all. At this point, I don't believe  anyone can make this right. Id say, the NCAA is guilty of a lack of institutional oversight and/or control because they allowed this cancer to grow like it has.Seems like they would have to invalidate wins for teams going back 10 years at least and that means they would have to strip away National Championships from 8 of the last 10 years. Everyone knew it was going on and my guess is, they will probably take a page out of  DT's book and hope that something else more newsworthy happens and draws everyones attention elsewhere, so they dont have to do anything about it.

Commentators will get the memo not to talk about it during the tournament and like most things in politics no one will even know it happened. I know that some say, the Justice Department will come down hard but my guess is that the NCAA, these cash cow programs and their rich alumni will come together and force the feds to do whatever they are going to do, nice and quietly, and without harming the good name of programs like a Duke University etc. Face it, the institution of big-time college basketball is way too powerful. unlike professional sports, there are 100's of college teams not 10-20 teams and it will be damn-near impossible to apportion sanctions for all of the violations, so they will sweep it under the rug and not much will come of this except some kid's mom will become the poster child for scandal because someone bought her dinner.

 

Caveat,

If one or two of the big time programs start self imposing sanctions, then they all start falling like dominos. 

 

02/13/2018 - 3:37pm I just hope they hire someone

I just hope they hire someone who wants to stick around for a while. We need continuity not a revamp every six months with the OL coach leaving, then the OC leaving after the next 6 months, then the passing game coordinator . . . Maybe Harb needs to let some of these other guys handle the administrative duties and he become more involved in the actual coaching, development, offensive schemes and play-calling. At least that way the players learn a particular system and become proficient running it.

02/13/2018 - 3:20pm I'm just not as entusiastic

I'm just not as entusiastic about SEC Football as they are. To be such a big conference, only 4 teams tend to be any good with Bama being on a whole other level. Sure at Auburn, you get to play Bama in one of the biggest games in the sport but the Michigan Ohio State game eclipses that game. 

I think unless you are playing out of your mind during the season, you have to believe that the Michigan connection to the NFL is stronger because relationships play a huge factor in who's attention you get. Michigan is looked at all season long whereas Auburn is looked at mainly when they play Bama.

Finally, Michigan is projected to do very well next season and when they out perform expectations everybody eligible will get a hard look for the next level. Without being biased, I really believe if he went to Michigan, and if he is good enough to beat out the guys already here, the teams success would thrust him into the spotlight among the nations OL talent. U of M could win a National Championship next year. I dont think Auburn or Texas wins 8 games.   

02/11/2018 - 7:08pm I dont care who calls the

I dont care who calls the plays if they work. Harbaugh should be calling them since it will ultimately be his undoing when we struggle. Honestly I dont think anybody wins national championships or enjoys the kind of success Les has had, if they arent very good coaches. Case in point. Steve Fisher was thrust into an interim coach position and he showed he had what it takes to lead a team from top to bottom. Winning at the championship level isn't luck. 

02/11/2018 - 11:43am Not sure about McElwain, I

Not sure about McElwain, I wasn't very impressed with what he did at Florida. Does anyone think we would have a shot at bringing Les Miles back as an assistant?

1. With his age, he might want to end his career at U of M as an assistant coach like Madison.

2. We might be able to hang on to him longer than a season or two.

3. He loves Michigan so its probably not a ladder to the next best thing. 

4. He's considered by many an offensive genius and our offense needs help bad. He would have used Peppers in ways unimaginable.. 

5. He could open up recruiting avenues down south as he has strong name recognition particularly in talent rich Louisiana where we get no love.

The only drawback I see is that Harbaugh might not want to have someone of his football pedigree looming in the background and constantly hearing whispers that he should take over when somethings going wrong.

Thoughts????? 

 

 

02/07/2018 - 1:04pm I'm looking forward to next

I'm looking forward to next season being epic. We will have the talent to win a National Championship but will the development of the O line and Offensive playcalling be up to the task? IDK .

I have noticed a couple of things though . . .

It seems that the big powerhouse schools are going after Michigan in particular. Every recruit we identify first, (Reese, Petit Ferer, Friday, etc.) Bama, Ohio State, Notre Dame, etc. are going after hard. It's almost like if we keep Michigan from getting their players and we get our recruits, they wind up with a shitty recruiting class ranking (no disrespect to the guys we did get). 

Not only are they going after our targets, but they are trying to hire away our coaches as well. "It's a great plan Batman, but will it actually work????"

02/07/2018 - 11:37am Well I have to say this is

Well I have to say this is disappointing news. 

1. To lose our big prize LB recruit to Georgia.

2. To lose our OLine prospects to Notre Dame and Ohio State.

Urban Meyer really has it rolling and I dont see how we catch up. I know if we win games, that will help but we need the biggest, baddest, bestest recruiters to catch these guys. Now that I think about some of the guys we barely missed on, Wheatley is truly missed. I'm not sure what a couple of these million dollar coaches are here for because their work product stinks. So I can see we get beat out by those top 7 perrenial powerhouse teams like USC, Bama and maybe a few up and coming super hot teams like TCU. Our recruiting classes shouldn't rank in the 20's and 30's with the likes of Wake Forest or Vanderbilit no matter what. We're having an Austin Powers moment and we need to find our MOJO!!!!

02/05/2018 - 10:13pm CONGRATS TO BIGGS!!!!! Its a

CONGRATS TO BIGGS!!!!! Its a great opportunity to get a graduate degree from one of the top universities in the world and learn from one of the great coach's in the game today. Perhaps after some years of hard work and being a student of the game he loves soooo much, he might become a super coach from the Harbaugh tree and earn Don Brown/Tim Drevno or even Harbaugh kind of money. 

Its a great plan as many kids don't make it in the NFL because of injury and other variables that we dont consider nor appreciate. Big-time coaches make as much as big-time players and he truly bleeds Blue. This a great day for a Michigan Man and U of M.

12/12/2017 - 5:39pm I have been experiencing it

I have been experiencing it too. Running Chrome.

12/11/2017 - 7:31pm This is masterful recruiting,

This is masterful recruiting, using non-traditional avenues. great job Harbaugh and staff for getting  the #1 QB in 2015. It's really "in your mouth". Don't be a hater 

12/11/2017 - 7:16pm We will be title contenders

We will be title contenders if he is eligible or if Peters starts. I  think if we get him qualified we might be pre-season favorites.

12/11/2017 - 7:10pm The future is very bright in

The future is very bright in Ann Arbor at QB. I saw Patterson play his Senior year at The Opening and he was fantastic. IMO he was better than Fromm, Eason and Peters. Because Peters and McCaffrey have more experience in this system, they have an edge on Shea but lets be clear Shea Patterson is a beast and from what I saw, he is clearly the better QB. He has mobility, a quick release and shows a cool leadership confidence that Peters has yet to show me.Although Peters has great arm talent and McCaffrey has that confident leadership quality, neither has shown me the entire package, like Patterson. Not to mention, Dylan needs to put on 20 lbs. so he can be more durable. Peters has the edge right now but cream rises to the top and whoever wins this QB battle will be the real deal. The season is long and brutal, which is why you need two very capable backups. 

Someone asked why would Shea commit to transfer here, when there is no guarantee he will start or even play? Because he is the real deal and he is confident in his ability to take the starting job. Thats why I fully expect Shea to be the starter at UM sooner than later, and I expect us to play for a National Championship next year.

Go Blue!!!!!

11/22/2017 - 4:28am He looked like the best QB as

He looked like the best QB as a H.S. Senior during the Open Finals and some of the All Star games. I would loe to have him Go Blue.

10/21/2017 - 11:58pm I was kinda always blah blah

I was kinda always blah blah blah about the offensive coaches. I admit, I still believe Harb can coach up the QB's but frankly all the other guys are underwhelming. I said all along that Ty Wheatley's impact on the running game would be felt. I couldn't be more honest, these guys need someone who really coaches RBs not a fill in guy. Not impressed with Pep or the Frey guy or Drevno. We should bring in Les Miles as the O Coordinator to make the offense more dynamic. He is a phenomenal recruiter, has a great offensive mind and would probably jump at the chance to retire here. The Offensive play calling is too conservative and is very limited in their looks.We have all seen this coming for weeks yet we were hoping something changed. It hasn't and we looked terrible.

Defensively we had a rough night as James Franklin and co. clearly did their homework and developed a gameplan to counter the #1 Don Brown defense. We got spanked and it shouldn't have been that bad. The Safeties and a couple of the LB's got torched on slants, mismatches and they failed to keep containment all night. The blitz was completely neutralized and D. Bush was turned into an average player because he was forced to play a different facet of the position (chasing runners who have broken containment because he has over pursued while blitzing). Confident the Defense will rebound. because Brown will tweek the D to overcome the problems but teams will all try to game plan their offense around our blitzing tendencies and neutralize D. Bush. 

10/21/2017 - 10:27pm Our Safeties are really being

Our Safeties are really being exposed tonight. Kinnel, Hudson and Mettelus aren't keeping containment on the runs and they are getting killed on the slants. James Franklin has done a great job of planning for Dr. Blitz by taking advantage of over-pursuit and anticipating our tendencies.

The offense is too conservative or lacks enough innovation to move the ball consistently. We clearly have the athletes but the offense is way too predictable.It's ok to say "you know what I'm gonna do, try to stop me" when your'e playing against Hawaii. But if were playing top 10 programs, we have to have better playcalling and a game plan. The game plan seems to be the same for all of our games. (Let the defense grind out a low scoring game where we have a chance to win by scoring 10 points). Works sometime not all the time.  We need offense.   

10/03/2017 - 7:01pm I think its afterglow coming

I think its afterglow coming off his visit to Bama. We all knew they were coming at him hard and they would pull out all the tricks to seal the deal. Sounds like he had a great time. At the end of the day, we have put in the work with him from day 1. He and his family are comfortable with our staff and players. We are close enough to his home where his family can see him play. Also, I think most kids would want to be a part of the re-emergence of Michigan rather than the reloading of the same ol thing. Most importantly, we put lots of players in the NFL too. Its a marathon not a sprint. He will be back home, chill out!!!   

09/25/2017 - 9:31pm I think its always good to

I think its always good to keep the lines of communication open. I have been hearing rumblings about J.M. de-committing or looking around. I hope not. As much as I like the kid, if he can flirt with other programs, we can flirt with DTR and the kid committed to UNC. Nothing is final until someone signs on the dotted line. How did DTR do at the OPEN finals and how has his senior season been going anyway?

09/25/2017 - 6:48am I wasa thinking the same

I wasa thinking the same thing. Not hearing his or Mo Hursts # being called but I know they are both having quite an impact on the game. No player can choose if he wants to be double-teamed and finally, Gary came to Michigan because he and his mom trusted his H.S. coach who made him the #1 player in H.S.

09/24/2017 - 12:44pm Yes Gentry is a formidable

Yes Gentry is a formidable weapon that we need to exploit more along with all of the TE's. I really liked the way Gentry adjusted to catch th ball over the shoulder yesterday. I would say this kid has a bright future ahead as an NFL TE. 

09/24/2017 - 12:39pm Congrats to the defense for a

Congrats to the defense for a great start of the season. Don Brown is definitely worth the money they pay him. However with success comes poachers. I wonder how many schools will come offering him a head coaching position and top money? I wonder if he would be interested?

09/24/2017 - 12:26pm A few things stood out to

A few things stood out to me.

1. Our TE group looks impressive and I think we can get a lot of production there with a young and enigmatic WR group. We need to use them more if the WR aren't ready. Gentry looks poised to be a star.

2. The re-emergence of Evans is a sigh of relief particularly since something is wrong with Isaac. The running game is a three headed monster and someone will breakout every week

3. Devin Bush Jr. is on FIRE!!!!. Once again he was everywhere giving Purdue fits. Seems like he took the Jabril Peppers spot and deserves defensive player of the week honors.

09/20/2017 - 4:55pm I think with Black out we

I think with Black out we need to insert a taller more athletic receiver like Nico. At 6ft.5 he brings a facet to the game that the others don't. I'm sure he will have to be ready before he sees action but if we get him acclimated now, when Black returns, we will be scary on the outsides. Then add in 6ft. 7 TE's, Perry, DPJ, Crawford, McDoom.  If Martin is injured he should take his time. We dont need another slot guy, We need a big guy who can high point the ball and go up and out physical smaller DB's. We are really going to be good.

09/20/2017 - 4:34pm The brand is stil the #1

The brand is stil the #1 choice for young people. I think Adidas probably doubled down and tried to gain more of a market presence as has others like Puma, and Under Armor. Bottom line is none of them have the appeal Jordan has (#1).

It's like owning a Chrysler 300 loaded and everyone saying "It looks like a Phantom". But when you pull up next to a Phantom you realize the two arent nearly the same. Sure both have nice brands and Chrysler sells way more vehicles but everybody knows the Chrysler is out of its league. 

09/14/2017 - 12:02am I agree. I have been saying

I agree. I have been saying this kid has a combination of size, speed and agility to be a very good RB. He just needed more touches. In limited play, and with a mediocre line last year, he's had some impressive runs. I can see him playing on Sunday if he continues to get the ball.

09/02/2017 - 7:31pm OK, game is over and I want

OK, game is over and I want to say the defense is absolutely FIRE!!!!!! The secondary will go through some growing pains as Levert Hill got beat up and picked on BIG and I hope they grow up fast. D. Bush was big-time all game. In fact, with the exception of them exploiting Hill and the secondary, the defense looks better than last year.

Our running game is clearly up to the task and I cant say it enough, Ty Isaac was the difference and will be a lot of trouble for opponents. All the TE's were spectacular, G. Perry, and T. Black did their thing. Nordin was good and Speight struggled a big with accuracy but was a good game manager. If the OL can create better running opportunities, Our RB"s could lead the nation in running. 

GO BLUE!!!!!

08/23/2017 - 12:18am So Kyrie is better than

So Kyrie is better than Thomas hands down. He's NBA bigger and although he doesnt play D like we would like to see, other guards arent shooting over the top of him like they do Thomas, who's a defensive liability. IT does have the heart and skills to play this game and has shown it night in and night out. He gave the Cavs hell and almost pulled the upset, until getting hurt and missing game 7. 

However when you add in Crowder, who's a good defender and also showed what he's capable of in high pressure situations, the guard swap evens out. Finally to add an unrestricted 1st round pick from Brooklyn (who by the way will be shitty again) the Cavs basically get a lottery pick and potentially become long-term formidable, I'd say Cleveland won here. 

08/22/2017 - 12:57am I read thru quite a few of

I read thru quite a few of the posts and was very suprised to hear that the majority of you guys seem to get it and you're not upset with athletes who demonstrate their right to speak on arguably the biggest platform they might have the opportunity to do so on.

It's terrible that Kaep has been made an an example of when he is a good athlete who can still play. I read about team disruptions and all but truthfully most of the athletes probably would similarly demonstrate against injustice if they weren't afraid of the backlash from the owners and NFL who pander to the "make America great again" crowd. 

Timing is everything here. If Kaep does it right after winning the superbowl, the owners/NFL would look the other way because he has too much value ahead of him to blackball him, much like they will for Peppers. My hats off to them both for using the stage they were given and standing for something instead of being a circus act  that gets all used up and never stands for anything.

Again, I'm glad most of you get it.

08/21/2017 - 4:46pm I predict that Evans will

I predict that Evans will rush for 1,000 yds. It could be slightly less but definitely close. Higdon around 700 and Isaac around 600. The hammering Panda will blast through on short yardage plays and rack up TD's like he did last year. The runners will be punishing. My only question marks will be, whether or not, with Wheatley gone, will Jay teach these talented runners enough for them to improve up to expectations, given his inexperience as a RB coach?    

Predictions are high because I think he will do a formidable job. 

08/21/2017 - 4:25pm And they will be back with a

And they will be back with a vengeance after losing a NC game to Clemson. Prayers go out to any team that has to play Bama this year. I predicted that we meet them in a first round playoff game and get our ego's deflated, to set up our 2019 NC year run.

Its still early in the process. I'm sure he will get the attention he's looking for very soon. It's hard to imagine him not keeping the home team in the top 3 because staying close to home is always an option. 

When we win that National Championship, he'll come around. In the meantime lets not make their job harder and enjoy the process. Its not personal its entertainment.

You might be right that the pass was horrible but we also look for guys to make plays out of nothing. That was Oliver Martin making a play and that is what we hope for.

Good points by everyone. At the end of the day, I think Saban did what he thought was best for the team to win. Consequently, he was correct in playing the freshman. Hurts played very well for a freshman all season and he sets them up to be stronger for the next two seasons. He's probably the 2nd best QB in CFB behind Lamar at Louisville.

Higdon seemed to be kneck and kneck with Evans toward the end of last season already. No suprise there. I see them both splitting 70% (35% each) of the carries with the other 30% going to Isaac, who I think will be phenomenal if he gets the touches.

He made some mistakes in big games but I was impressed by him late in a few games too. He was solid and a couple of those losses could have easily gone our way.
