No, you won't. You will sign with the Tigers and like it.

Well, if that article is to be believed, Sheridan showed a better arm than Tate did in practice today.....

I believe ND still has an agreement that a nine win season gets them an automatic berth in a BCS game.

08/27/2009 - 3:58pm Notre Dame has been the butt

Notre Dame has been the butt of jokes for well over a decade. To say that their reputation as a football powerhouse hasn't taken a hit in the eyes of analysts and fans is just wrong. Other than some delusional Irish fans, NOBODY considers them to be an elite program anymore and haven't for quite a while now.

08/27/2009 - 3:57pm That's because they will

That's because they will probably have a good team this year and only need 9 wins to secure an automatic bid.

It should read "easier to understand". I can't get back in there to edit that post.

errrr

08/26/2009 - 3:26pm The way I've heard it put is

The way I've heard it put is that Rich Rod's spread-option offense is somehwhat to understand than some other offensive systems, but, it can be quite difficult to execute.

08/26/2009 - 3:25pm LOL

I'm looking for my cyanide capsules as I post this.

08/26/2009 - 3:10pm Nate Robertson will be

Nate Robertson will be replacing Armando Galarraga in the starting rotation. Armando has inflammation in his shoulder. He's going down to Toledo for awhile.

08/26/2009 - 11:14am Until we are able prove

Until we are able prove otherwise on the field, Dodd is correct about Western having a better offense than we do.

We were awful last year. We have no idea how our offense will perform come September the 5th. This really isn't all that hard to understand.......

08/25/2009 - 2:58pm Actually,
This has been a

Actually,

This has been a very strong rumor for quite a while now. I believe Tom VH even said he had heard the same thing about JJ decommitting if he were asked to switch positions.

08/24/2009 - 6:28pm Agree

Lage has always been a fairly decent journalist, imho.

08/24/2009 - 4:27pm FWIW:
Doug Karsch said this

FWIW:

Doug Karsch said this morning that, after sitting in on a few pratices, it is evident to him that Sheridan makes fewer mistakes than either Tate or Denard. That's probably the biggest reason why he has a chance to play this year, especially early on in the season.

08/23/2009 - 11:23am Wow....

Okay.......

Devin Gardner will NOT be moved to WR for his first couple of seasons. I'm shocked that you would even think that's a possibility. That's NOT how you go about developing a quarterback.

08/23/2009 - 11:13am I'm officially aboard the

I'm officially aboard the "Denard for Starter" bandwagon.

08/22/2009 - 12:48pm What?

Boeckman's star rating means NOTHING in this conversation. He played well as a junior in '07 and took OSU to the MNC game. He was benched in '08 in favor of a very talented freshman in Terrelle Pryor. I believe that Devin Gradner is in the same mold as Pryor or Vince Young. It is very possible that Gardner earns playing time as a true freshman.

08/22/2009 - 12:41pm Uh-huh.....

Uh-huh.....

08/22/2009 - 12:35pm For the same reason the

For the same reason the Buckeyes benched a senior QB in favor of Pryor last season. He's just too talented to keep off the field.

08/22/2009 - 12:12pm My $.02 worth:

I wouldn't count on Devin Gardner redshirting. Call me crazy, but, I have a feeling he will play as true freshman, not because Tate or Denard aren't good, but, because Gardner is just too good to keep off the field.

08/22/2009 - 11:59am Shaw was also dealing with a

Shaw was also dealing with a sports hernia injury, I believe.

08/22/2009 - 11:14am I agree with ya, Chitown.

I agree with ya, Chitown.

08/21/2009 - 11:02am Do you think Dior Mathis now

Do you think Dior Mathis now becomes an option again?

08/20/2009 - 11:05am WTF???

Two years in prison for being an idiot and shooting yourself?

Find better legal representation, Plax.

08/19/2009 - 8:36pm The thing is....

Making a very realistic prediction about what our record will be is not a "stupid jab at Michigan."

08/19/2009 - 4:28pm There is absolutely nothing

There is absolutely nothing wrong with what Ware said. Like it or not, five wins is very possible considering we are starting a true freshman at quarterback and have a defense that is one giant question mark at this point.

Some of you are just going out of your way to find reasons to bitch about the msm.

08/18/2009 - 10:51am He made the right decision.

He made the right decision.

08/17/2009 - 4:11pm Yes

Huff would be eligible for the postseason roster.

08/17/2009 - 4:04pm He can't be any worse than

He can't be any worse than Raburn was at 3rd. I would expect Huff to play at 1st for Miggy once in a while as well.

08/17/2009 - 2:57pm You can't possibly be foolish

You can't possibly be foolish enough to believe Herbstreit did that on purpose, can you?

God lord.......

08/17/2009 - 12:33pm I hope he signs with the

I hope he signs with the Tigers.

08/16/2009 - 10:42am That defensive line isn't

That defensive line isn't just bad, it's atrocious. Michael Turner would've rushed for 200+ yards had it been a regular season game.

08/15/2009 - 11:20am Agreed.

Agreed.

08/15/2009 - 11:16am I really think those injuries

I really think those injuries slowed his development as a WR. He was a tough kid, though, for playing through them. It's pretty damn hard to run routes effectively on a pulled hammy.

08/15/2009 - 11:10am Very true. He wasn't the

Very true. He wasn't the greatest of route runners, either, which probably played into his seemingly chronic case of the dropsies.

08/15/2009 - 11:00am FYI:That "outdated" offense

FYI:

That "outdated" offense we used in the last five or six years of the Carr regime was, in fact, virtually identical to that of USC's. Steve Breaston was injured for much of his final two seasons at Michigan. He played through a hamstring injury for most of his junior year, I believe. That was the reason why he looked a step slower.

08/14/2009 - 3:28pm Sharp is a columnist. His job

Sharp is a columnist. His job is not to "report the fucking news." He's paid to offer his opinion, which is what he did.

08/14/2009 - 3:23pm Agree completely.

We DESPERATELY need a game to talk about. September can come soon enough.

08/14/2009 - 2:34pm Collegiate players are unpaid

Collegiate players are unpaid amateur athletes and deserve to be treated as such. Professional athletes are paid to perform well and win. They are absolutely fair game for fan outrage and criticsm, imho.

I think even you would agree with this.

08/14/2009 - 2:27pm The problem with Fontes was

The problem with Fontes was that he had final say in player personnel matters, thanks in large part to his sucking up to Billy Clay Sr. Of course, he had a nasty habit of throwing his assistants under the bus, too.

The front office wanted no part of Andre Ware and tried desperately to convince Wayne that he would be a bust. Old Wayne-O wouldn't hear any of it.

08/14/2009 - 1:16pm IMHO

The two biggest mistakes that the Lions organization made in the early to mid '90s were:

1) Keeping Wayne Fontes around for a couple of years too long

2) Signing Scott Mitchell instead of keeping Erik Kramer, or, signing Warren Moon.

08/14/2009 - 12:47pm Please, just put Greg

Please, just put Greg Matthews back there to return kicks and punts (as he did back in the '07 season). He might not have the speed to break a long return, but, at least he can catch and hold on to the ball.

08/14/2009 - 12:18pm Chitown,I don't think people

Chitown,

I don't think people realize that:

A) Trent was originally recruited as a Wide Receiver

B) Trent performed much better in '07 when Vance Bedford was his DB coach and not Scott Shafer

C) Trent probably would've been a better fit at Safety than at Cornerback

In any case, Morgan Trent does not deserve even half the shit that he has taken from fans. Our entire defense struggled last year, not just Stevie Brown & Morgan Trent.

08/14/2009 - 11:15am I couldn't agree more, Tom.

I couldn't agree more, Tom.

08/14/2009 - 11:11am Hate to burst your bubble.....

Our academic standards for athletes probably aren't on the same level as those of Stanford or Cal. Very few schools (if any) are.

08/14/2009 - 11:01am It's a myth that the Lions

It's a myth that the Lions offensive line was bad while Barry was here, at least for his first five or six years in the league. LT Lomas Brown and C Kevin Glover were both Pro Bowlers.

08/14/2009 - 10:39am Not to nitpick, but, we as

Not to nitpick, but, we as fans know next to nothing about what kind of a husband and father that Rich Rod or virtually any other public figure is.

(Of course, it's nobody's business, either.)

08/12/2009 - 8:36pm Just a guess, but, I would

Just a guess, but, I would bet the coaching staff told Teric that his best chance to earn playing time would be for him to make the switch CB.
