I wish I had your dedication to restraint.

And why should I trust YOU, random internet message board guy?

But the guy behind him still might be a 5*. He didn't say "insert the next Bosa," did he? There's not another one is there? Now I'm freaking out, man!

When was Couch committed? Did I miss something?

Can anyone link this post from UMbig?

What difference does it make if he's in school? Kids don't take naps after they are 5 years old anymore?

After reading the article I can see it either way. He's clearly comfortable with Alabama and seems to have more of a feel for what they are doing there after his recent OV.

On the other hand, the comment Mrs. Hill made about schools telling Dax how they needed him there, etc. made me think that Michigan has the upper hand in how they pitch the university/experience above solely football. Mix that in with the rumor about the group chat he has with UM commits...we'll see how this thing shakes out soon enough, but winning football games will certainly help our cause.

There is no change Coach Harbaugh is holding guys out because he's worried about creating a "controversy." 

09/08/2018 - 6:18pm Half of it is.

Half of it is.

Those are their positions. Mayfield at LT and Hudson at RT. It's been that way since fall camp started.

Runyan hardly touched the end over him on the second or third pass attempt of the game. The dude made some weak spin move and about destroyed Shea on the play. It looked like more of the same. 

That being said, Ruiz looked much better, and got to the second level on a handful of plays.

Where is everyone putting money tomorrow?

I parlayed the under on our game (45), Auburn covering over Washington (-3), Kentucky over CMU (-17), and Marshall over Miami...NTM (-3). Not standard lines, but able to choose within a few points either way. $15 would win me $600.

Anyone know what jacket Mattison is wearing in the picture above? Can't seem to find it anywhere.

08/31/2018 - 8:52am I always wake up way too…

I always wake up way too early due to excitement. I'll put the coffee on, make a good breakfast, put on my maize and blue, and wait for College Gameday to start. To kill time, I end up streaming hype videos and playing The Victors loud enough for my buckeye neighbor to hear. I always get together with my brother about an hour or so before the game, and we watch together.

This will be the first college football season with my girlfriend, and she is nervous due to the unknown. I have tried to prepare her, but I don't think she's fully aware of how big this is. Hopefully she is patient and kind.

Just out of curiosity, where is your semi-rural Ohio town? It's nice that the locals leave you be.

You could have at least disguised your user name to keep us guessing, Coach JayBaugh.

I get it. I once realized how overly invested I was when hanging out with a player after a UM loss. He was disappointed, but I was ready to jump off of a cliff. It's just a game and we have no/very minimal impact on the outcome. As a rule, we probably shouldn't be more upset than the players.


08/24/2018 - 12:31pm 3 Michigan players in the…

3 Michigan players in the top-26 seems like a good thing...hopefully. Where do we currently stand with them?

08/22/2018 - 1:08pm I can only imagine that…

I can only imagine that Rashan is taking exception to the fact that Bosa is being picked instead of him on many of these pre-season AA teams/polls/etc. I'm certain this will fuel his motor, and I feel bad for those who will attempt to stand in his way.

That hockey stick work video was...weird

Thank you for that juicy nugget of information.

He looks like a man on a mission. The special ones are able to hold themselves accountable while the others settle for "good enough" or make excuses. Glad he's back.

Downvoted for than.

No joke. A SMALL order of boneless wings now costs $12(!) at BW3s. I used to go twice a month about 10 years ago, but now it only happens once or twice a year when someone else chooses the restaurant.

Out of curiosity, what "shortcomings" are bothering you? I'm just trying to get used to the new look/navigation, but I don't have many complaints other than that the new site is just...different.

05/22/2018 - 8:37am That's what I enjoyed about

That's what I enjoyed about it. Did he need the money? Of course! But he was so determined, to a fault, to prove that he could hit that shot when everyone doubted him. It was vindication for him. Besides, I think he actually came to accept/find some pleasure in his lifestyle.

05/14/2018 - 7:56am What the hell do you even

What the hell do you even talk about during those four phone calls? I'm guessing topics of conversation must be limited to what he learned in chemistry today, how good the bosco sticks were, how many fortnite kills he has, or if he thought the new girl was cute. I just don't get that approach, but I'm also not a big time D-I college football recruit.


05/09/2018 - 11:59am Correct. I found it

Correct. I found it interesting that the recruits mentioning age actually thought Jim was younger, which can't be a bad thing.

05/07/2018 - 8:03am Men at Work by George Will,

Men at Work by George Will, Three Nights in August by Buzz Bissinger, and Is This A Great Game or What? by Tim Kurkjian are all very good reads.

04/17/2018 - 8:47am It's not even necessarily the

It's not even necessarily the "Toledo area" competition that is weak...his school is D-IV, I believe, and it is in a BAD conference. I'm assuming you saw him playing AAU or something similar though? That should alleviate some of those competition concerns, I would imagine.

I'll definitely be listening for his name in the future. Thanks for the update.

03/16/2018 - 11:08am The slang term for it is

The slang term for it is "Texas Freshman." Many parents are electing to hold their children back a year in hopes of capitalizing on athletic opportunities down the road. It's pretty silly.

03/12/2018 - 1:10pm I hope you're right

I hope you're right because that is identical to mine.

03/09/2018 - 8:03am I'm an assistant baseball

I'm an assistant baseball coach at a school of about 650 kids that plays in a conference in which at least 3 other schools have 1200+ students. We're small and have not had much/any athletic success in the past 10 years aside from a conference wrestling title.

I went into the season thinking we'd have a good year if we went .500. The guys ended up setting a school record for wins, defeating the No. 1 ranked team in D2, and made it to the state semi-finals in Columbus. The school sent the team down in a charter bus, we had a police escort out of town, and our practices that last week were filled with media interviews.

Those boys worked so hard, believed in one another, and just found ways to win games. It was freaking incredible. Hope your community gets to celebrate soon!

02/26/2018 - 8:26am I have just recently started

I have just recently started drinking scotch and was at an airport bar when I saw a Macallan. I'd heard good things, so I ordered one, which turned out to be the 18. It was a little too big for me, and I was shocked when I saw the $23 it ran me. It's not a scotch I would recommend starting with, but what do I know?

I have about 4 different scotches in my cabinet at the moment, and am enjoying the Glenmorangie 10 and the Balvenie DoubleWood. Sampling a few different ones in a night can be really helpful in determining which one you like the most. It is always very clear to me which one I prefer after trying 2-3.

I was exclusively a beer drinker, and am having fun with getting into scotch. Good luck, and enjoy!

02/05/2018 - 1:08pm Because they'll be less

Because they'll be less likely to leave for a job at another school in a week.


/s...kind of.

01/17/2018 - 8:35am Just bought a 30" J. Tyler

Just bought a 30" J. Tyler and Co. clock for above my fireplace. Just had a break-up, so I'm having to replace a bunch of decor and have no clue what I'm doing, but it's a pretty slick looking clock.

01/17/2018 - 8:31am Play catch

Lots and lots of catch. It's time spent that you'll never regret. Also, keep a ball wrapped in it when it's not being used.

01/17/2018 - 8:04am Question for you about the

Question for you about the Sig. I have a P250 and the trigger pull is way too long for my liking. How is it on the P320? I'm in the market for an upgrade.

01/02/2018 - 4:33pm Agreed. I love what Mike

Agreed. I love what Mike Gundy did when he hired his OC. Have somebody run numbers on offenses around the country across various levels, match that up with preferred style/tempo, and start setting up meetings. If a dude at a JC in Oklahoma fits the mold and passes the Harbaugh eye-test, then bring him on board.

01/01/2018 - 8:44pm The RR team that played Miss

The RR team that played Miss St. gave up. That was the first time I've ever turned a game off. But this was bad.

01/01/2018 - 8:13pm And he was the best at it.

And he was the best at it. That is a terrible argument. Go kick rocks with that crap.

12/27/2017 - 7:47am So out of curiousity, what

So out of curiousity, what should someone who likes Oberon sample to branch out to find something better, but similar in the "summer beer" sense?

12/24/2017 - 11:47am Where are you seeing that

Where are you seeing that Howard is out? Her wasn't on the injury report this week and no one is reporting that.

12/24/2017 - 11:43am Apparently he did it last

Apparently he did it last year against Diggs, which is the only time it's happened. They'd be smart to have him shadow Shepard, but I'm not sure what the plan is. I also fear Pittsburgh will jump on Houston and abandon the pass game early.

12/24/2017 - 11:40am Trust me, I felt the same

Trust me, I felt the same way. I had Rodgers and Cousins,but all of the rankings had Keenum top 10. Sometimes you just have to stick with what you know.

12/24/2017 - 11:22am I was until I had to start

I was until I had to start Keenum last night and he shit the bed. Howard is so hit or miss, so it's hard for me to trust him.

Peterson could shadow Shepard, and Martavius is probably boom or bust too.

12/24/2017 - 11:18am Rich man problems, huh? I'm

Rich man problems, huh? I'm not even sure what to tell you. I think KC realizes that Hunt is how their offense moves...but I'm not sure how you sit the others either.

12/21/2017 - 11:21am I actually thought the

I actually thought the opposite. Kinda in a "Chase will be excited to tell you that he's coming back to do something special here." Hopefully it's good news, but I suppose it is impossible to decipher based on that quote.

12/20/2017 - 11:15am Magnus also posted a list of

Magnus also posted a list of guys who are at least expected to sign today.

12/20/2017 - 10:00am Definitely agree that he

Definitely agree that he wouldn't take that role back at UM, but when should we expect a resolution (or confirmation of) to our offensive coaching staff assignments. Is it still considered likely or possible that either Drevno or Hamilton will not return? I'd assume we would find out shortly after the bowl game, but what are everyone's expectations?
