11/23/2015 - 12:31pm He's staying on D

I just don't see how they take him off defense for his primary position. I can definitely see him getting more snaps on offense, but I think the majority of his snaps will come from the defensive side of the ball. RBs are easier to plug in than finding DBs with that sort of athleticism.

11/20/2015 - 10:43am Rose Bowl

would be my first choice agianst whoever in the PAC12. After that, Florida would be a tough but exciting matchup. I think playing Ole Miss would be fun, and something new. Fournette scares me too much to want to play LSU.

11/17/2015 - 6:18pm Let's go

Rockets baby!

10/24/2015 - 8:26pm Not that important

But I can't decide whether I would want him to take the 2 or just let it be and have Jabrill make his own legacy with #5

10/22/2015 - 1:58pm Yes you did

As soon as the game the game ended I turned my back to get out of the stadium as quickly possible. As we all know it takes a while, and so when I finally turned back around to look at the field there were a fair amount of State players either taunting the student section or running over to do the same thing. 

10/22/2015 - 1:05pm Really like the

second to last question you addressed here and your answer.

At first after the game of course I was upset. Devastated. But it didn't take me long to comprehend the bigger picture. Meaningful football games are back at Michigan and I think this is just the beginning. Obviously it sucks to lose, but I think we'll be alright and grow as a team because of it.

Also to your point, I don't think I have seen such an aggressive fan base after winning. Sparty just seems unreasonably mad still. I mean they are always a little angry, but after that win you think they would calm down a bit. Yet you get people like Jemele Hill who feel the need to yell at us through a tv screen. 

10/15/2015 - 10:52am Hate this

so much. Vandalism is taking it too far IMO, or at least spray painting statues and iconic university landmarks.

10/14/2015 - 4:18pm They have some definite weaknesses

due to injuries and graduation. In particular, their OL and secondary are not what they've been the past couple years. That being said, I still believe they haven't played their best game yet and will pick it up come Saturday. Game will come down to QB play, where they have an obvious advantage. If Rudock can have a "nice" game, nothing too spectacular, then I like our chances to win.

05/01/2015 - 7:44pm I wouldn't mind

Under Armour one bit. I like the classic feel they have with Auburn and Notre Dame, and thought worked with Northwestern well. Plus, I feel their apparel would be a definite upgrade over Adidas.

04/04/2015 - 1:57am Also

Moe's Sport Shop will have some Harbaugh attire too!

02/04/2015 - 5:41pm Crazy to see

Drake Johnson listed as RB4. He was very impressive in the end of last year, hopefully he comes back strong.

01/29/2015 - 12:48pm Went to

Miami of Ohio before transferring here to U of M. The lack of cute girls thing is definitely not true. Miami is about as good as it gets when it comes to attractive girls per capita, because that whole school is one big sorority/fraternity, but there are definitely a good amount of attractive girls here at Michigan too. It's just there are also a bunch of ordinary, smart girls as well. Idea is totally outdated.

01/21/2015 - 5:10pm Some of you

need to move on. We got our guy, and it's about as good of an hire as we could've made.
Who cares if an analyst thinks it's only the second best hire made in all of football.

12/04/2014 - 5:59pm Because I

Because I, just as most every poster on here, is overly invested in this coaching search. I am also a huge fan of Gus Malzahn, so I clicked hoping the guy had more reasoning than just "No one has mentioned him yet, and Cowherd likes the guy!"

12/04/2014 - 5:21pm Why

Are you wasting people's time with this?

04/17/2014 - 11:07am As a Spurs fan

This was both awesome and sad to see.

01/09/2013 - 11:51am I've talked to a few SEC fans

on another blog site, including Auburn fans, and they say they still believe he is a UM lean. He is being heavily pursued by the new Auburn coaching staff but in their opinion the coaching turnover may be too much to overcome. Not sure what is going on with these Auburn fans referenced in the OP.

10/23/2012 - 6:40pm Have to give Ohio pro fans some credit....

....while their teams are usually notoriously bad/choke-artists, especially Cleveland teams, the fans themselves are very passionate.They are the complete opposite of the type fans you find in areas such as Miami etc. I currently go to Miami (Ohio) and there is a lot pride in all their teams, whether deserved or not.

Ok positives over, let's go back to ragging on them please.

04/09/2012 - 8:38pm He has been working

with Barwis personally, and before that with the same trainer I use. Talked to him multiple times, he is a good kid. Always talked about wanting to go somewhere warmer though, so this decision makes sense. He is definitely a good player, though a lot of the competition he has faced is questionable.

03/14/2012 - 2:00pm We had a class wide

bracket challenge in 8th grade. Most the girls did well and won using this method of choosimg. The championship game was between Florida and UCLA...

03/13/2012 - 3:21pm As an alumnus of CC

We did the same thing to some public schools around us. Didn't really have to do with race at all, we usually only used it when the opposing schools would chant something like "brokeback high school" or something along those lines. I do believe U of D does not have better academic standards/prominence than CC and not sure where that belief in U of D came from and why it's so prominent. 

03/02/2012 - 5:25pm Haha gota disagree there

Even on the beautiful days, those curvy roads in the middle of nowhere still make you want to drive like an old man. Though the drive on a nice day between Oxford/Ann Arbor is probably one of easiest 4 hour drives you can make.

03/02/2012 - 4:29pm Best of luck to him -

I just got home driving back from Miami (Ohio). The drive right now is brutal with this terrible weather...especially in Ohio.

01/21/2012 - 4:54pm Best of luck

Best of luck to the kid. Committed to play before everyone knew how good this class was. I hope he does great things at Cincinatti. I think our OL haul is still top notch.

01/06/2012 - 2:31pm I think the GF

I think the fact that his GF goes to Bama already has a big part to do with this. Whether or not it factored into his decision, you know his parent(s) at least believed it to have some role. Thats just how they work. Of course a mom would rather her son stay home and play for a national program in their own backyard instead of going into a different state to possibly be with his girlfriend. 

01/04/2012 - 7:54pm Don't bother

giving him a legitimate response - his profile was created today. A poor trolling attempt by Sparty, but either way I hope DeAnthony and his father well.

01/04/2012 - 1:28am I know GoBlue418

I know the OP personally. Good man but converted Sparty fan, it's a shame we had to lose him.

01/03/2012 - 12:31pm Agreed

I was getting very annoyed after VT got picked for the Sugar Bowl. The media wasted no time giving them bulletin-board material. Heck, Herbstreit ripped into them on national tv the minute they got chosen. They will definitely be very motivated, but as we have seen with Team 132 motivation and heart is definitely not an issue.

01/03/2012 - 11:35am Well not like it matters

but so far two analysts have picked against us. Thanks for nothing Todd McShay and David Pollack. Don't know Pollack's track record with his picks, but I'm sure it isn't a big deal. Geaux Blue.

11/05/2011 - 10:57pm No it isn't

To start 6-0 get to 7-1 and finish 7-5 would not be acceptable, but it isn't unlikely. I believe we will overcome Illinois on the road next week, but I think we slip up against Nebraska and Ohio State. To those who say we're solid at home, the best team we beat at home was Notre Dame and that was somehwat of a miracle win. Our only B1G home wins have come against Purdue and Minnesota - not exactly two teams that can indicate how good your team truly is.

11/05/2011 - 8:07pm Maybe you guys

will realize we just aren't that good. We are good, and a better team than last year, but we're still not a good enough team. I don't where all this confidence from the fans came from. I believe in wishful thinking, but how you guys thought we would easily walk into Kinnick stadium and come away with a win is mind-boggling. I feel confident in saying we will finsh the regular season 8-4, with that final win coming next week in Illinois.

10/22/2011 - 1:26pm 10-2 would be

a pretty optimistic result. I see us going 9-3 with unfortunately losses to Nebraska and tOSU.

10/13/2011 - 11:41am Seriously guys

Let's beat Sparty before we can even think about going to the B1G championship game. This season has played out exactly like last season minus are defense didn't shit the bed vs the terrible teams we played. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

09/03/2011 - 7:41pm Big difference

that I saw was the lack of missed tackles. Yes we didn't stop the run by any means but we didn't miss tackles. We blew some coverage assignments too but you can clearly see the difference from this year and last year.

08/14/2011 - 7:35pm Been waiting for Cam

Cam Dillard to be mentioned. He is a friend of mine (acquaintance) and was one of my training partners and I frequently would talk about Michigan with him ( more as of a joke than anything). Kid is pretty damn strong when he sticks with his work ethic and gets the right training. He has been training with Barwis a lot lately so I don't know the status of his strength these days, but the kid is still a beast and is still growing. Hope for big things for him.

07/15/2011 - 7:31pm I got denied

with a 31 and a 3.8 from a very competitive private Michigan school. It was pretty crushing especially considering some other kids that got in, but I know I should have done better. 

I am now off to Miami University in the fall, and if things at Miami aren't great then I will attempt to transfer to U of M. 

Still, GBOD!

07/12/2011 - 4:31pm Gamertag Puppa SFW

Gamertag Puppa SFW.


I'd be done for any kind of serious dynasty, if the OP still has any spots open I'd take Michigan,  PSU, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa, MSU,tOSU, Northwestern, Illinois in that order.


If not I'm down to join another.

07/10/2011 - 8:29pm Aaaaand now they have

And now they have realized they don't mind losing Kalis at all. A money quote from Bucknuts regarding Dodson and Kalis.

" That would be the best news all year. I think Dodson is a far superior talent to Kalis and is way under rated. I was more upset about Dodson going to Wiscy then I was about Kalis committing to Michigan. Kalis is like a HS girl who changes his mind every five minutes and I don't want him here. He contradicts himself every 4 or 5 weeks and is a sell out! I would welcome Kyle Dodson back in a second and I didn't blame him for committing in the middle of this shit storm to Wisconsin because at that point he didn't want to get left out of a top program, and OSU was retarded for not offering him earlier. I can't wait till Bollman and Peterson are GONE!:

07/04/2011 - 9:44am I don't think so.

If O'brien committed first, then they would still take Pipkins. If Pipkins committed first, its hard to see the staff turn down one of the best prospects in state and a solid prospect nationally to hope for a kid from California. That's not the type of recruiting buzz that you want in-state.

06/28/2011 - 7:54pm I'd hate this

I'd hate this guy just the same no matter where he goes.

Seriously, eff this dude. So sick.

06/27/2011 - 10:17pm Bucknuts

hate Strobel so much. and if Kalis ends up blue then their hate towards both will just increase tenfold. 

06/27/2011 - 5:40pm I think its a Sparty fan

because they just had a whole thread on tRCMB about T-Rich wearing a Florida hat and they were all giddy about him possibly decommitting. Its honestly pathetic. It has to be them.

06/26/2011 - 4:45pm He's the only safety

mentioned because Jeremy Clark just committed...kinda. The coaches are only going after Wilson now, and if he doesn't commit then Clark will get offered a full scholarship. I think that does it for safeties.

06/26/2011 - 1:42pm If they de-committ

then I guess it would be like going to your bachelor party and cheating on your fiance, and then you end up marrying the "stripper".

06/23/2011 - 12:25am So

is chocolate milk a better post-workout drink than any protein supplement powder?

06/22/2011 - 4:52pm I was a site that showed

Denard rated as 94 overall i think and one of the top 5 quarterbacks in the game.

Also notable, Michigan is now only a 5-star prestige and not 6.

06/21/2011 - 10:49pm Just a random bucknuts post:

"I think its absurd to let kids like Kalis hold THE Ohio State program hostage because we won't name Fickell HC. I have no problem with him choosing to go to that $hit hole to finger bang Stroebel if it means we bring in a guy like Meyer or Pelini, etc. Fickell has proven nothing. I like his heart, I like what he said in the press conference, but lets be serious. Ohio State is one of the top three programs/jobs in the country. There are a ton of coaches gnawing at the bit to jump on board. Lets see what we can do after August."

Who wouldn't want to deal with a fanbase like that?

06/21/2011 - 9:20pm Honestly

I fear for this kid's mental stability and all-around safety if he ends up going Blue. The level of class that a lot of tOSU fans will handle this with will be nothing surprising. 

Go Blue Kyle, and see the true nature of your "fans".

06/20/2011 - 11:44pm Do not worry

I'' be in the same company. Obviously Olson, Bars, and Keenan are talented prospects considering that we offered them so early and pursued like we have, just the idea of having legitimate chances at these national prospects is too enticing and would provide even more excitement for the rest of the class.
