Or we have no other tackles

09/08/2018 - 6:54pm No dude. Definitely not that…

No dude. Definitely not that song

08/09/2018 - 11:54am Detroiters is a great show…

If you didn't click the link, Jim Harbaugh is going to be in tonight's episode.

Detroiters is a great show. I do wonder what people who aren't from or didn't ever live in the Detroit area think of it? Lot of inside jokes and local characters. 

07/02/2018 - 3:28pm Not to thread jack but there…

Not to thread jack but there is also some online chatter about Steve Lorenz post indicating we lead for a 5star that isn't Harrison. Anyone have any idea who?

05/23/2018 - 1:32pm no hoops?

I liked it better when we had both the basketball and hockey teams involved.

03/09/2018 - 3:26pm Two points

a) The Ice Cube is owned by the City and not the University which means the program would have to pay for ice time. Not ideal

b) Think about the times for both of those. Open skate was middle of the day while the players are usually in class. UM sports teams practice around mid afternoon and go to classes until about 2pm when in season. If I remember correctly open skate is Noon to 1pm and when we did Broomball it was CRAZY late at night (pretty sure I had a game start at 11pm once).

03/09/2018 - 2:31pm List of reasons

1) EXPENSIVE AS F#&K - It costs a ton to field an ice hockey. Its truly prohibitive in that regard.

2) RED - I love Red Berenson. My favorite coach at Michigan ever regardless of sport. That said it was well known that he didn't want to create more competition for ice time and resources for the Men's team.

02/18/2018 - 9:33pm This helps

This helps Pairwise ranking significantly correct. Particularly the road win. Where does this put us?

02/01/2018 - 1:13pm Heard this too

Apparently this is in lieu of a dedicated WR coach. Been in the works for a couple of weeks.

01/30/2018 - 9:48am Absolutely no justice

The Atty Gen Bill Schuette should be ashamed. How the hell do you appoint a special investigator who has Spartan skeletons in his closet. Attorney friends of mine said Schuette is a real piece of garbage but this is really embarrassing.

The article said the Spartan booster who paid for the investigators retirement party from his old job had this to say about the Nassar situation:

“Secchia came under fire last week when he suggested in an interview that Nassar's victims' parents should take some of the blame for the abuse suffered by their daughters, questioning whether some were more interested in winning medals than raising concerns about Nassar.
Secchia also told WZZM-TV in Grand Rapids: "I would say to (parents) that if you don't feel comfortable with your children at Michigan State, take them somewhere else because we've got a long list of people that want to go to Michigan State and there are some wonderful people left."

01/10/2018 - 4:37pm Is this if

Is this if we lose Partridge?

Elston is a defensive coach at Notre Dame. Thought the D staff was pretty set

01/05/2018 - 8:17pm Are the

Are the guys who played in the World Junior tournament back yet?

12/20/2017 - 5:19pm You have a few months. The

You have a few months. The last two years the kids I know who applied didn’t hear from Ross until March

12/20/2017 - 4:25pm A very large percentage

A very very large percentage of applicants apply Early now. I think it’s like 85%/90% of the applicant pool applies Early Decision

12/18/2017 - 2:43pm .....

Image result for clubber lang pain

 

Sorry.......had to...........what's a call for predictions on the MGoBoard without a Clubber Lang reference.

12/16/2017 - 6:19pm One of the WLW

One of the WLW coaches is a Michigan grad and former manager under Gary Moeller

12/15/2017 - 3:34pm Just Engineering

and I think the arts programs

12/15/2017 - 3:33pm Also true

Depending on the year typically 50-70% of the class gets in in December. There are still spots available. I think it'll be towards the lower of those numbers this year.

12/15/2017 - 3:31pm I back this

If you get deferred you have about until the third week of January to submit new info including fall grades. They won't tell you this but if you have an extra recommendation, I'd send it. I'd also send a letter stating your interest. You would be surprised but if it comes down to making a decision between two applicants and one clearly states they want in, they take into consideration.

12/15/2017 - 3:29pm That will be your earliest notification

It will go up on Wolverine Access way before anything else. Its a good idea to keep your eyes peeled there.

12/15/2017 - 3:28pm I do Alumni Student Recruiting

I do Alumni Student Recruiting for the Admissions Office. There isn't an exact date but I can tell you that for the last five years they've sent out early decision notification about a week before Christmas. Since the Common App came on the scene I believe the earliest I've seen it was the 15th and latest was 21st/22nd.

12/07/2017 - 4:31pm From NAHL website
"The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that forward Jack Olmstead has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for the University of Michigan. 
 
Olmstead, 19, is Wilkes-Barre/Scranton's leading scorer through 25 games, helping the team to a 16-6-3 start.
 
The 5’10/170 lbs native of Troy, Michigan, has taken the NAHL by storm in 2017-18. Olmstead’s 13 goals and 12 assists in 23 games leads his team in points and is second-most among all NAHL rookies. His +13 is the fifth-highest total in the league, while his 1.09 points per game ranks eighth among players who have played in at least 10 games."
12/06/2017 - 4:28pm Other way around

Zordich does safeties, Smith does CB's

12/06/2017 - 4:19pm Sort of amazed after 4 posts

Sort of amazed after 4 posts that the inevitable "Charles Woodson for defensive backs coach" hasn't started.

.........and no, there is absolutely positively no way.

12/03/2017 - 9:53am They aren’t

OSU isn’t really Recruiting the straight drop back type are they?

11/30/2017 - 12:52pm This is true, plus...

Per the comment about potentially grabbing their players....most of these guys probably went to Ole Miss because of bagmen. Logic would state that the same would be true regarding wherever they choose to transfer.

11/27/2017 - 7:32am Milton

I could see Milton switching positions.

The 2019 QB will be an important pull. They need to land someone big there

11/26/2017 - 6:14pm Malzone

Malzone is a redshirt sophomore.

11/15/2017 - 7:33pm Tuesday 6pm at Bell Tower

That’s correct. I’m in touch with the guy who runs it and usually a participant. and Its the Tuesday before OSU game. Meet at 6 pm at Bell Tower.

11/13/2017 - 2:28pm MSU has jumped

MSU has jumped recently. They used to be second to last and in the 100's but they've made some gains the last couple of years.

11/08/2017 - 4:39pm Midterms?

He's a student at another college correct?

11/06/2017 - 5:48pm Hardly a bagman situation

Some desperate autograph hawker literally stalked these guys around the Alabama campus and paid them a couple hundred bucks so he could turn around and hawk that stuff on ebay. 

The bigger story on SI.com was that said hawker later realized the profit margin on doing said stalking wasn't high so he started up a multi-million dollar fake memorabilia ring on ebay and got busted. 

All in all, Alabama's culpability on this is very very minimal and I wouldn't classify this as anything near the proverbial "Bagman" concept of shady alums/boosters stuffing cash into the pockets of recruits, parents, coaches etc. This was just a desperate dork trying to get stuff to sell on ebay.

11/02/2017 - 4:51pm You're off.

5,000 to 7,500 people show up in a crappy neighborhood for fourth division NPSL soccer at Detroit City FC for every game. The players are basically all college kids or recent grads. I think that the quality of play will be able to drive significantly more. There is a big soccer culture among the millenials and among parents with young kids. It will do fine if they find a way to embrace those constituent communities properly. Conversely, the atmosphere of the game seems like it would take a hit being both indoors and in a large NFL stadium. 

They also have to keep ticket prices reasonable.

11/02/2017 - 4:47pm THIS

No way MLS turns down having Ford associated with it.

11/02/2017 - 4:27pm SO many issues

Issues both ways:

1) PRO : This pretty much locks up the bid. No way MLS is going to turn down a bid that has the combined strength of Gores/Gilbert and now the Fords behind it.

2) CON: Indoor soccer kind of sucks. Plus, stadium is too big and not really meant for soccer. The stadium will be half empty most games and that really drags down atmosphere. 

A lot of the new soccer only stadiums seem to build in some add ons that are soccer specific, particularly for the supporter sections like capo stations etc. 

 

Further......then what the hell did Gilbert just do this deal for the FailJail site in Detroit for. He sold the deal to buy the land next to his casino on the notion that he would put up a soccer stadium. Now, less than a month later after the deal is either done or on its way to done, they say they're not and are going to play at Ford Field?!? This seems shady. 

I'm a big soccer fan. I was already leery of the MLS deal without DCFC though I liked the soccer only stadium idea. This seems to be going further south.

10/13/2017 - 11:46am So who's next up

Any early predictions on who both the interim and long term coach will be? 

Do you think they'll give Tab Ramos the lame duck period to try to prove himself?

10/06/2017 - 12:35pm From the Weather Channel

These are hourly forecasts starting at 7pm tomorrow night. That 10pm forecast is not looking good.

Further.....if thunder/lightning does in fact come, they have to stop the game for 30 minutes right. If I remember correctly they actually cleared the stadium for that Utah game a few years ago. What a frigging debacle that would be late in the game, especially if its close.

10/02/2017 - 2:02pm Really??

Was Dave watching MSU's offense last week? Our offense may be a question mark BUT at the very least our defense and special teams are going to give us some short fields to work with that should result, at the least, in field goals. If State's offense played like they did against Iowa and Notre Dame, I don't see them putting that many points on us.

09/29/2017 - 6:51pm Writing

Writing on the wall?

09/28/2017 - 10:35pm Question

How many spots do we have in this class? We have 4 commits already. There is room for another?

09/28/2017 - 5:51pm I've seen this before

No the line of cars goes down Stadium St. waiting to get it.

09/28/2017 - 5:50pm I dunno man

Those are usually the rowdier parking areas and I'm sure the owners were nervous in the first place about the night game and the amount of drinking that goes on. Add in the stresses of a rivalry game and that becomes a hot spot for trouble. If I'm the owner of those places, I'm doing everything I can to minimize the possiblity of trouble. If everyone in the lot has a game ticket, it cuts down on the number of people in the lot during the game. 

09/28/2017 - 4:21pm Though you joke.

Though you joke, it made me think about trying to explain to the powers that be at the University why it would be ok to auction off a jockstrap. Used or otherwise.

09/26/2017 - 10:38am Louisville again?!?!?

Louisville again????  Aren't they currently on probation for the hooker thing?  Does this mean the squeeky hammer gets put aside and they might actually get the Death Penalty?

EDIT: (From and article): In one instance, Gatto and the other defendants reportedly funneled $100,000 to the family of a high school basketball player to convince the player to sign with a "public research university" in Kentucky. The complaint doesn't name the university. Based on details provided, it is likely the University of Louisville, which signed a $160 million sponsorship deal with Adidas in August.
