That's awesome. Even though the OSU game didn't go our way, I'm still amazed at the OL transformation. Congrats to Jon!

11/26/2018 - 10:42am I think we can all…

I think we can all understand that, especially after a game like that.

That being said..
- a player like Zach Harrison could potentially contribute day 1, help get pressure on the QB, and hopefully prevent another game like that
- I would love to see Michigan exploit mismatches, whether it's airing it out or hitting the edges hard, in the bowl game. That would give me hope that Harbaugh and Pep will at least try to modernize the offense next season

"The bag men associated with certain schools pay potential signees one-time bonus payments not to visit a rival school that's offered a scholarship. The going rate is stated to be $2,500. This has become a popular tactic in recent years, as the recruiting process has become more publicized."

My girlfriend is just starting to care, at least a little, about Michigan football. Her favorite players are Chase Winovich (in part because of his hair) and Ben Mason.

She even asked, "where's Mason?" on a short yardage situation during the Wiscy game when he was banged up and saw fewer snaps.

Gofundme actually doesn't make you give them a cut - I could be missing something but I think you can enter 0% for the "tip" if you want everything to go to Ace

Donated. Feel better soon Ace, thanks for all the great posts over the years and hope to see you back on the site soon!

I wonder if Harbaugh could try sliding bredeson out to LT and inserting spanellis in his place at LG. Don't see how it could be worse than our current situation.

I think ESPN is just trying to generate clicks/discussion - same reason they always put Tom Brady NOT at #1 in the top 100 NFL players.

Or they're just being trolls.

Conservative or liberal, I would rather have him be a Michigan man than not. Go Blue!

07/02/2018 - 3:10pm Pros: Feels like a "young"…

Pros: Feels like a "young" city. I started working full time a little more than a year ago and there are lots of people around my age

Cons:
- More true of Texas in general, but it's quite flat from a hiking perspective and Big Bend is about 7-8 hours away. 
- The heat. Worth mentioning twice.

 

That being said, I love living in Austin in general.

Phew. Really exited for this team next year. Zavier, Poole, Livers, Matthews, & Teske make a pretty darn good lineup to start the season, plus Michigan has all the talented incoming freshman. Go Blue!!

You still can join! It only takes about 1 minute per day, literally. 

All you have to do is click on the link to get an assignment, then navigate to the CFB risk game page and press the button corresponding to that assignment. That's it, done.

04/03/2018 - 1:05pm It was pretty cool seeing how

It was pretty cool seeing how much MAAR has grown from his freshman season. Started as a 2-star with no major offers, and then grows to become the heart of the team (imo). Incredible player development on Beileins part.

04/03/2018 - 1:01pm Singlehandedly wrecking MSUs

Singlehandedly wrecking MSUs postseason/exposing them might still be my favorite part of this season. Their conference schedule was a joke. How's that conference title feel now sparty?

03/16/2018 - 12:01pm SDSU doesn't have a bad

SDSU doesn't have a bad defense - they're 31st on kenpom. But Michigan's defense is a different order of magnitude - 5th on kenpom.

I think Michigan will be fine, especially after getting the rust off from the long layoff.

12/10/2017 - 9:33pm Countess was a 4 year starter for Michigan

as I'm sure you well know. He made a good decision IMO to grad transfer to a school that better fit his skill set to give himself the best chance to be drafted.

Countess will always be a Michigan Man and I'll always root for Countess in the NFL.

05/27/2017 - 5:11pm So there's a chance?

 

In all seriousness, good news and hope we can get him down for a visit!

03/20/2017 - 11:35am Great they found it!

also Tom Brady is never OT, imo

03/18/2017 - 8:24pm I believe you

and I'm sure that's the intent, but if so, how in the world did that officiating crew in the Michigan vs. Louisville title game get the job? Did they just have one spectacularly bad game that happened to be the title game? Or was every crew in the tourney just awful? /sorry I'm still a little bitter...

03/18/2017 - 7:58pm What an awful call

What an awful call. Gonzaga player sticks his hand through the basket to block a shot, and NW coach gets T-ed up when he freaks out about the noncall. 4 pt swing, would've made the game one possession with 4 min left, instead made it a 7 pt lead for Gonzaga

03/12/2017 - 5:20pm Nice job guys!

Daily reminders were very helpful imo, and it's awesome to see such strong support for a good cause. Go Blue!

02/23/2017 - 8:11pm Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks for the reminder!

02/10/2017 - 2:29pm Just graduated

Dorms: Sounds like this may not be an option, but the new dorms are fully renovated and look quite nice even compared to my freshman year (of course they renovate the year I move out!). The meal plans are a rip-off though on a per-meal basis unless you do the unlimited plan.

High-rise:
- North Campus: I lived in The Courtyard, good quality & amenties, far cheaper than equivalent apartments on Central Campus. Definitely a bit boring as there isn't a whole lot to do on North, but the location is convenient if one is studying engineering or art & design.
- Central Campus: Excellent perks as far as living near restaurants, bars, & amentities with gym, hang-out area, laundry, parking etc. Most high-rises will do roommate matching if needed based on preferences such as noise level & whatnot. As far as price, I would recommend looking at Sterling 411 Lofts (I lived there for two years). Sterling 411 prices are far more reasonable than other Central Campus high-rises. My rent was around $800-$850 a month with 4 other roommates with utilities included. Still a bit pricey, but a far cry from $1200-$1500 a month.

House: I never lived in a house in kerrytown or south campus, but had plenty of friends that did. Definitely the cheapest option & from what I've seen/heard the most fun. In hindsight I would have chosen this option FWIW. The previous posts in this thread do a good job describing these.

Good luck with the search!

Imagine a 5-wide set with Nico Collins (6'5 outside), Oliver Martin (6'0 slot), Tyrone Wheatley Jr. (6'6 seam), DPJ (6'1 slot), Tarik Black (6'4 outside). Size & speed all over the field.

Wiltfong (#1 in 247 prediction accuracy) CB'd Nico to Michigan as well!

01/29/2017 - 10:50pm Awesome

Fantastic news

Exactly. I never understand why some feel the need to judge others for what makes them excited, what they're passionate about, etc.

For one, he hasn't been mentioned much by NLF scouts per today's article

Michigan is set to have a dozen guys drafted, and you'd better believe that'll perk up recruits' ears. That goes double when scouts are praising Harbaugh's development as the direct cause of said draftees. Best part of this: no Maurice Hurst. Let's keep that on the low for another year, yes please.

Agreed, but on the plus side it makes Michigan look really good.
