Well, considering the fact that nobody ever scores on Michigan, the sample size for kickoff returns is pretty small.

After reading your post, the only thing that came to me was:

Seems like a good place to start as any!

09/11/2014 - 1:07pm Same Article

This same article is written every year by a different author.

Funchess! That's my guess.

08/25/2014 - 5:44pm Kenny Demens

It looks like Kenny Demens has a great shot to make the Arizona Cardinals team.  I was quite surprised to hear his name on the telecast last night.  Maybe the beaver incident really did work...……

Straight Cash Homie!

06/16/2014 - 9:55am Media

The media loves to report that there was strong leadership when a team has a winning season and a lack of leadership when a team has a less than satisfactory season. I don't really buy it either way; it's an easy article to write.

Would look better with Michigan National Champions displayed below him.

Ferns is listed at 115 if you click next on the bottom of the page.  Not sure if this is the most recent update, as you said the initial list was he was 75-80.

10/07/2012 - 11:08am Hate much?

Hate much?


10/03/2012 - 5:07pm Oregon Offense

The Oregon offense didn't really start to take off both those years until the 4th/5th game.  I don't think the results would have been the same later in the season.  Purdue did play well in those games, I will give them that.

04/19/2012 - 12:01pm Tra Carson

2011 they brought in Tra Carson to play as big back....who then proceeded to transfer back to Texas after being homesick. 

2010 they brought in Dontae Williams to be a big back...who also then transfered back to Texas after being homesick.

While neither of these players was Blount size, very few RB's are.  I think because LMJ's and Barners great success in Oregon's offense, people tend to think that Oregon only recruits these types of players, but in reality, they've recruited all types of RB's.

04/19/2012 - 11:25am Also

Also see Jonathan Stewart.  Oregon coaches have regularly recruited big backs to play in their system.

10/26/2011 - 10:59am Too Bad

I was really looking for some advice on how to get into Ross MBA with this thread.

02/10/2011 - 11:02am Weird

That is just weird man.

01/25/2011 - 7:30pm Purdue Commit

Another Purdue commit taken away!

01/21/2011 - 1:56pm Jabroni

He's a Jabroni.  That is all.

01/14/2011 - 12:20pm EE

They only signed 18 or whatever last year, so they can have a number of Early Enrollees this year that count to last year's scholarship count.


EDIT: This is from Stewart Mandel's Mailbag column addressing the issue:

"Scholarships are based on the academic calendar, not the football calendar. Because USC only signed 18 players last year, 14 of whom enrolled last fall, it can count its nine early enrollees in the current class toward the 2010-11 school year. Should the original ruling stand, the 15-player limit goes into effect in 2011-12 and will include all players that enroll this fall (which may include some recruited walk-ons). It still can't go over the NCAA-imposed 75-scholarship limit for its overall roster."

01/01/2011 - 12:20pm Miss State

The good news is the SEC East is 0-3 in bowl games now.  Three of their wins were against the SEC East and four were against non-aq opponents.  

So there is that.

12/13/2010 - 2:55pm Thoughts?

My thoughts exactly too!

My favorite part:

"says gym major Jim Kapuna."  Nice work.

11/05/2010 - 1:38pm Original Investigation

I don't know about the original focus of the investigation by NCAA.  But I know the orginal focus of the investigation by Michael Rosenberg was to see if he could get Rich Rod fired. 

I have my sources, just like Karsch.

11/04/2010 - 10:08pm People love doing stupid things

People love doing stupid things.  For example: Chicago fans currently chanting Defense when they have already given up 90 pts by the 3rd quarter to the Knicks.  Probably should have started chanting a little sooner.

11/04/2010 - 1:45pm Immediate Solutions?

So any possible short term solution for the rest of the year?  Doesn't sound like it.

11/04/2010 - 1:34pm A Rapper

I know! A rapper!  Only the best rappers piggyback off their kids success!

11/03/2010 - 3:26pm Jabroni

It was recently seen in a positive light with the reintroduction to word in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.  But yes, the Rock used it well back in the day.

The comment above was a line from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

11/03/2010 - 3:03pm Straight cash homie.


Straight cash homie.

Maybe TRob can do a little dreamshake afterwards.

11/03/2010 - 2:56pm What did they ask?

Anyone know what they did ask?

11/03/2010 - 2:53pm Gus is a Jabroni

Gus is a Jabroni, no way around it.  He makes it look good.

10/29/2010 - 10:44am Michigan 31-17

Michigan makes a FG.  Penn State has a few big plays, but are mostly held in check.

10/29/2010 - 7:17am Michigan Players

The more former Michigan players on your team, the better your team will be! IMO

10/28/2010 - 2:41pm Decent Defense

He hasn't had a strong defense, but the strides he has been able to make have been impressive. Most people picked Stanford to be in the middle/lower part of the Pac10, based on a very poor secondary and defense overall.  The mediocrity of the defense has surprised people, given the expectation of Stanford having a poor defense.

10/26/2010 - 12:24pm Mad at Joey?

How can you be mad at Joey when he is involved with videos like this?

10/25/2010 - 9:45am Oregon over Auburn

I would move Oregon ahead of Auburn.  Honestly, Auburn has beat some decent teams, but hasn't really shut anyone down, or beat by a large margin.  I think they are going to be exposed soon against Alabama. 

Oregon beat Stanford, a pretty darn good team that people are not talking about right now.

They also went to Arizona State and won, a team that nearly knocked off Wisconsin.

Additionally, they just finished off UCLA, a team that went into Austin and won, which is less impressive now.

10/22/2010 - 10:06pm Comment=Awesome

This comment is awesome.  Jabronis all around!

10/21/2010 - 3:02pm 8-2

So you are saying we can be 8-2 heading into Wisconsin?  Sign me up!

Glad to hear we have a solid future at LB!

10/21/2010 - 2:47pm Football Game vs Hockey Game

Any idea why he is taking his official that weekend opposed to when we have a game?  Definitely a unique recruiting experience compared to other schools.

10/19/2010 - 8:16am State Game

I don't think the result of the State game would have changed a whole lot.  I think that the "tipping point" of us pulling out a win was a lot further than just changing Obi for Demens.  Too many other things went wrong that were uncorrelated to starting Obi.

10/15/2010 - 11:06am JT Floyd

No love for JT Floyd?

Maybe you are saying he becomes a lockdown corner next year and starts running a 4.3 40.  Then leaves early for NFL draft to become a first round pick.

28-24 Michigan Wins!

Go Blue!

10/06/2010 - 8:18pm Jeffrey Godfrey

Could someone remind me what happened with Michigan and Godfrey?

10/01/2010 - 2:20pm 45-31 Michigan

Close, but not that close.

02/24/2010 - 12:27pm Free Wifi

I wish more airports did free wifi like Portland's airport.

02/18/2010 - 3:21pm It's unfortunate

Feel bad for the guy. Putting himself in a position to win, but just not taking advantage of the opportunities he is giving himself. Seems like it can be a streaky sport. Here's to the U.S. catching on fire and winning out.

02/10/2010 - 10:03pm David Merritt?

I was reading David Merritt's story today and I saw that he received an academic scholarship to attend UofM. When he joined the basketball team as a walk-on, did that affect the scholarship count?

02/07/2010 - 12:17pm Colts

I don't bet against Manning.

Colts: 31
Saints: 20

12/10/2009 - 11:16am Good Question

I like the question.

Jeremiah Masoli, the Oregon Spread would not function the way it does without him.
