01/11/2010 - 1:33pm umm.

was no one else looking forward to USC - Stanford next year.
Harbaugh Carroll could have been fun.
Its a game i would have gone out of my way to see.

01/06/2010 - 5:45pm eh.. still a disadvantage.

We are already splitting recruits (not evenly) between two schools in the state of michigan.
Not a football talent hotbed.
I dont think we can afford to just write off a school like the one in question.(I know little about the school but it sounds like a bunch of recruits have come from there dare i say its a pipeline?).
Does this type of thing happen to any school in the state of Ohio or Texas?
I dont think it should happen in michigan.
I am not outraged but we do need to fight circumstances such as this one.

11/10/2009 - 12:32pm I dont know.

I kind of like it when ND fans call us skunk bears.
I think we should embrace that one.
Maybe we could become the house bear Paul F Tompkins pines for.

10/15/2009 - 5:16pm minor

i think it would be really cool if they could work minor in as the dive option as well.

09/30/2009 - 5:25pm Not surprised

Yeah im not really surprised either i just thought it was noteworthy and could be used as evidence of the bias in the future.

09/30/2009 - 5:20pm contract

They have a fifteen year contract with the SEC.

09/24/2009 - 1:39pm traded

raiders traded their first round pick to the patriots.

09/23/2009 - 1:15pm miami

miami has been pretty convincing

09/23/2009 - 9:42am pressure

Also the problem from what ive seen (which is very little) is pressure from the d-line...
Linebackers seem fine but their d-line has looked subpar without seymour.
They look like they lose the LOS every play.

09/11/2009 - 10:00am no other games

also there arent any other interesting games...
do you wanna see iowa play iowa state?
what about pitt buffalo?
bunch of meh matchups.

08/10/2009 - 12:43pm I dont have a problem with

I dont have a problem with this so long as all of the recruits have to go through this academic committee.
If they are funneling certain recruits through it... thats shady and it should be stopped or expanded to all student athletes.
The article doesnt make it clear if all of the recruits needed to pass the committee.

08/07/2009 - 4:51pm Please Stop.


08/07/2009 - 1:37pm walk ons

I dont have time to check but that total may include walk ons and or early enrollees that belong to the previous class..

08/06/2009 - 12:05pm Also

Its not that he isnt performing at USC its that he is more of a gunslinger QB that takes chance Pete Carroll wont allow.
The other quarterbacks are playing more conservative and thus beating him out.

08/04/2009 - 12:25pm Another HC position

I dont remember which interview it was but it said that Greg called RR to discuss the DC position.
That makes it seem like he wanted to get right back on the horse and could have other aspirations.
But who would hire him as a head coach now?
I think he is our DC for the foreseeable future unless he puts together some monster defenses, or fails miserably.

08/04/2009 - 12:21pm Casteel

I imagine if Stewart gets fired Casteel is next in line for the WVU HC position...

08/03/2009 - 8:57pm Forde is a moron.

I will do my best to never click on a link to one of his articles again.
Shlabach i dont mind... never gave me a reason to hate him anyways. Ill read his chats...

08/03/2009 - 12:40pm Schiano

Theres a reason Schiano wanted back in the Michigan head coaching search at the last minute.
Its because Bradley pretty much runs the Penn State team now.
Good luck wresting control from someone already entrenched.
So I doubt he goes to Penn State, but does he think he made a mistake staying at Rutgers instead of coming to Michigan?
If he does he might try to get in on a Notre Dame HC search or something along those lines...

07/30/2009 - 3:48am jay mariotti

He reminds me more of Jay Mariotti than Albom.
Reilly has no original ideas and tends to come off as a mouthpiece for MSM more than anything.
At least the titles of his articles give away that he is going to discuss the same thing that has already been discussed on foxsports and cnbc sports so i manage to avoid 99% of his work.

07/29/2009 - 10:27pm Hope

Same. Lets hope thats what happened.
I was excited about Cal or Pitt.
Uconn. Nothing to get excited about.

07/28/2009 - 2:03pm Stopped reading Forde

I stopped reading Forde after Henne Hart and someone else i forget who sat out the Wisconsin game in anticipation of the OSU game the next week.
Forde then wrote how terrible we are and how we dont deserve any of the hype.
The hype which had died. Completely. One game into the season. And what little was left was constricted out two games in.

07/28/2009 - 11:40am So you would read a Matt

So you would read a Matt Millen article because he played before?
I know that is an outlier type example but I think we hear plenty of guys who have played previously with most not offering any material of interest.
Or you know sentences.
I think the world is starting to realize that putting smart people in important places is more important than someone with experience for experience's sake.
Look at the rockets GM. He bases alot of his analysis on stats and he never played. The rockets got killed when they hired him because he wasnt a "basketball guy".
Meanwhile Isiah Thomas was a great player but terrible front office guy.

07/28/2009 - 9:50am material

I think the material available also played a large role.
There was a huge dead period where very little happened and I think some people just got anxious and posted anything just to post.
Now we can talk about the 2010 opponent, B10 media days and other things seem to be cropping up daily now.
Ill bet ten months from now we see a couple nonsense threads again.
The point system should help prevent repeat offenders.

07/27/2009 - 6:52pm My hopes

1) Cal with Jahvid Best
2) Arkansas
3) Pitt
4) ok st. because most of their ten best players according to this preview:

will be gone

07/27/2009 - 6:43pm The Knowledge

Is that you? Are you making your epic comeback?

07/27/2009 - 6:37pm opponents

Anyone have their pulse on whats going on with these teams?

I would like to play a relatively high profile matchup.
Preferably against someone who finishes in the top 25
High profile in this day and age is a team with a stat stuffer kinda guy like Jahvid Best or Dez Bryant that ESPN can hype in comercials.
Will those guys be on their respective teams in 2010?
I doubt Bryant sticks around for his senior season given the hype he is getting.
Best is kinda small so he might stick around for his senior year.
But I really dont know.
Mallett would definitely be at Arkansas
Isnt virginia going to have one of their DBs playing QB?
No thanks to Virginia.
Pitts entire offense was mccoy and hes in the NFL now...
Pitt would still be interesting though.

The teams I want to play are (in order)
1) CAL with Best
2) Arkansas
3) Pitt

07/27/2009 - 6:18pm Drastic

This seems drastic if their intent was to clear emergency lanes for safety.
It seems to me they could have threatened to write tickets if you block certain emergency routes and then have the sheriff come around give one warning and then write tickets...
The current solution appears to appease the sheriff and make them some money in the process...
Its a private company that is entitled to use the land as they see fit.
Just like we will be entitled to go elsewhere.
Forty dollars is not cheap.
Implied in that price is some extra space to spread out and have fun.
If they plan to set it up like a parking lot people will just park somewhere else.
I know I wont park there until i hear they are allowing people to take up the space they want... within reason.

07/23/2009 - 7:42pm over 6

I was really starting to warm up to that line brian talked about in an UV of michigan over 6 wins -160. Think ill pass on the over 7 +105. Ill jump if i see an over 6 though.

12/16/2008 - 4:36pm because RR tried to bring

because RR tried to bring Casteel with him to run the 3-3-5. and then we switched to a 3-3-5 against Purdue and rumors were it wasnt shafers decision to do it. Thats why i think so anyways.

12/16/2008 - 4:26pm i hate this news.

RR needs time to get his offense in but shafer doesnt get time to get a poor linebacking and safety situation up and running?
Even worse we might get stuck with the 3-3-5 which i dont think can work against good teams in the big ten.
Hopefully Casteel stays at WVU.

11/11/2008 - 5:58pm Really?

Everyone is surprised to find out that a statistic tells us we are terrible this year. After managing to show up for one half each week... and before our first complete game on offense and defense. Sorry not concerned. What would be interesting is what this stat looked like for RR in the first year and then the successive years at his previous stops. That comparison might be enlightening.
