"I can assure you the MI/OSU game was not determined by bias...poor positioning, poor judgement perhaps but they weren't biased going in."

Really?

And you know this because you know the officials who refereed the game? You know where they're from and where they live? Which team they and their families root for? Which teams they grew up rooting for?

Another question: if an instant replay official making the potentially final call of a game were biased, could he determine the outcome of a game?

01/01/2015 - 2:45pm Not trolling, just stating facts

So it is indeed classy to call other people obscene names? I think not. If you have a problem with my statements, have at it. But you attacking me personally is classless. 

Additionally, I'm not trolling Christianity - I'm merely stating facts. Tebow interwined his religion with football, which is why both subjects are relevant here. If you like Tebow, fine. I personally think he was a great college player and an awful NFL qb. But acting as though his consistent invocation of his faith and football are mutually exlcusive (or irrelevant to this discussion) is disingenous. 

01/01/2015 - 1:41pm "His Christian fan base"

I said "his Christian fan base," not the entire Christian fan base. I think you're kidding yourself if you don't think Tebow's outspoken faith didn't play a pivotal role in the support he received as an NFL qb.

01/01/2015 - 1:38pm Classy

Class act you are. I'm merely pointing out the folly of commenting on someone's character when you don't know them. Relax.

01/01/2015 - 12:25pm Do you know him personally?

Do you know him personally? How can you say he's a "good person" without actually knowing him? I think a lot of the vitriol towards Tebow stems from the irrational support he received as an NFL qb from his Christian fan base in spite of his horrible play.

This image always comes to mind when I think of Alabama and recruiting. 

 

12/31/2014 - 8:58am Yes, yes we would

Yes, yes we would. 

12/29/2014 - 12:16pm 4 star

Composite: 4 star, No. 80 overall, No. 2 TE

04/22/2014 - 2:15pm Real name

No gimmicks

03/26/2014 - 3:32pm State by state

In short, the public sector version of this will vary state by state. This may make it easier for some public school players to unionize than others depending on their location. 

03/26/2014 - 3:28pm Private Sector vs. Public Sector

It's important to note that because the University of Michigan is a public school, it is subject to the public sector labor laws of the state. These laws can be very different from those of the NLRA in the private sector. A state employment board (MERC in Michigan) would have to decide that athletes are employees based on the state laws (the PERA in Michigan). In Michigan, all the recent political animus towards public sector unions leads me to believe this would be a pretty tough sell. 

02/09/2014 - 11:28am Thanks, Ollie.

Thanks, Ollie.

02/08/2014 - 10:40pm Awful

Those look awful.

01/19/2014 - 11:33am Lol

Not sure if this was meant to be sarcastic, but it made me laugh.

01/02/2014 - 5:08pm Fair

That's a fair point.

01/02/2014 - 5:00pm Slow

He's also a very slow man. Garrett has been destroying him.

01/02/2014 - 4:49pm Kein?

Melvin Kein? (Sp)

01/02/2014 - 4:24pm Didn't look like it

Didn't look like it. The corner over there got sucked out of his zone, looked too skinny to be Peppers

01/02/2014 - 4:04pm Picture

That would explain why he isn't in the group pic, thanks.

01/02/2014 - 4:03pm This

This please.

01/02/2014 - 4:02pm Harris

Does anyone know Harris's number?

09/08/2013 - 5:20pm Lol

Lololololol. Goooooood luck with that Texas…

09/08/2013 - 4:17pm Choice

Gardner chose to honor Tom Harmon by wearing his #, he was not forced to. If Gardner wanted, he could have finished his career donning #12. As long as players can choose, I see nothing wrong with our teams honoring legends of the past. It's really the best of both worlds.

09/08/2013 - 10:43am In a word,

No.

09/07/2013 - 4:26pm Cyborg

He's not a cyborg, he's a baby. He just overreacts to any sort of injury, making people think it's more serious than it actually is.

09/01/2013 - 6:46pm Come on

Oh come on, give the guy a "break."

06/22/2013 - 7:12pm LeVert

LeVert is razor thin. Homeboy needs a sandwich.

06/21/2013 - 10:59am Boom

Goes the dynamite!

05/27/2013 - 10:56am Per 247

Per 247, Michigan offered 17 Ohio prospects in 2013 as opposed to 8 prospects in 2014. This makes it clear that Michigan simply did not want as many players from Ohio this year. 

05/27/2013 - 8:37am Top 5-10

With Hoke's recruiting the last 3 years we should def be a perennial top 5-10 team. And we will be.

05/13/2013 - 3:42pm Really?

You should be ashamed of yourself. Grow up and show some class.

05/07/2013 - 1:02pm Classy

What a classy and well reasoned post. Kudos...

04/18/2013 - 9:10am Really?

You can't say someone's not a team guy just because they opt to go to the league and be paid for their skills. Is Brady Hoke less of a team guy because he gets paid $2-3M per year? While I applaud Taylor's decision come back, I will not say Burke is not a team player. He's a lottery pick ffs.

02/27/2013 - 6:47pm Foolish

You clearly don't have an iPhone. I charge my iPhone 5 once every other day. I have LTE 95% of the time. Retina display looks fantastic. Jailbreaking allows you to change your phone in pretty much anyway you want. I could even run an android theme. iPhones are incredibly crafted and made. iPhones are excellent phones, stop hating.

02/22/2013 - 8:44am Snow Day!

Taking advantage of some nasty weather and working from home today. Life is good

01/28/2013 - 6:54pm Yes

1. I do think the SEC, or at least a few of their schools are committing major violations.

2. I believe this because of what has happened with Auburn and at Ohio. I can't imagine the win-at-all-cost culture in Columbus is that different from the South.

01/28/2013 - 11:56am Top 5

Negligible differences between our class and Ohio's aside, this is another fantastic effort by Hoke & Co. I cannot wait until our overall roster values reach elite levels.

01/23/2013 - 12:54pm Couldn't agree more

I couldn't agree more. He's arguably the best linebacker to ever play and he does amazing things for his community. No brainer 1st ballot.

01/01/2013 - 12:28pm Go Blue!

UM 21 - SC 20

12/31/2012 - 12:37am Crossing fingers

It's not over until he signs, so I'll be crossing my fingers until then. This does bode well for us.

12/24/2012 - 7:41am Great Read

I'm impressed by this young man's willingness to own his shortcomings (no pun intended) and overcome them. Truth be told, I believe there are a lot of college football players with some type of learning disability that we just don't hear about. It's amazing that they get the opportunity to attend four-year colleges and receive the necessary assistance they need to succeed.

12/23/2012 - 10:53pm Agreed

I think an appeals process is necessary, because false positives do happen. But I definitely agree with you that it should be an expedited process. If they're cheating then they shouldn't be able to prolong the process just to play extra games.

12/23/2012 - 10:04pm This

I couldn't agree more. The big hit culture has also contributed to more players getting neck injuries from leading with their head down and it provides a poor example for young kids watching.

12/23/2012 - 10:00pm Confused

Are you mad about the ability to appeal or that they worked the system?

12/23/2012 - 9:56pm Classy

Classy.

12/23/2012 - 9:54pm Amazing

Simply amazing. Good work sir.

12/21/2012 - 8:00pm Just guessing here

I'll take a stab at it. I think he is referring to the rather childish discussion of the prospects name.

12/21/2012 - 7:56pm Excellent

This is excellent work. It seems a foregone conclusion that the south has more athletes, but it's great to have different metrics to illustrate that point. Also, holy DBs batman.

12/21/2012 - 7:51pm Wet?

Is it wet or just a crappy field?
