You must be joking. This is Shea's team. McCaffrey will be a solid back-up and hopefully get enough reps to be ready to take over in 2020.

Reynolds has other UM ties as he has had two NFL internships:one with John Harbaugh's Ravens and another at the Colts with Pagano.

I believe Al Washington is the DL coach-in- waiting whenever Matty retires. AW played DL when he was in college.

Interesting indeed.  If you do not take into account average rating then your system is misleading. This metric incorporates average rating in a rational way.

Webb + Wiltfong = a pretty sure thing.  Important get at a position that is always in need.

I was hoping to keep him out of the Big Ten, but at least he did not go to osu who were very much in the mix for a while.  Frost will make the most of this jump-cutting wizard.

11/15/2018 - 4:53pm Sam Webb said he will not be…

Sam Webb said he will not be coming this weekend but that is NOT a negative sign with regard to his likely commitment to Michigan.

11/15/2018 - 4:13pm The words "commit watch"…

The words "commit watch" were in the tweet from Jackson - not added by the OP.
So Jackson thinks someone will commit this weekend.

Gary only has one more year of eligibility.

 Bingo! I said  -11 ...  and I think we will actually win by much more.  This is the Don Brown revenge game.

10/28/2018 - 12:02pm Michigan -11.

Michigan -11.

10/26/2018 - 4:02am Are the points based on the…

Are the points based on the CURRENT ranking of the opponent or the ranking at the time that they played?

I think it is clear that Shea has been told that protecting the ball is a top priority.
As he gets more comfortable in the system it is likely that they will loosen the reins on his natural propensity to go for it.

All the vectors are positive as they work to mesh ball security with a bit more swagger.

10/15/2018 - 2:09pm 3-0 Big Ten

4-0 Big Ten

Agreed.  Bryant would thrive in the Auburn offense.  A perfect fit. Malzahn's schemes work even better with a serious running threat at QB.

09/22/2018 - 3:59am Inability to edit typos on…

Inability to edit typos on posts is annoying. You would think the tech people could fix this.
Looks like a good bet as long as the Trojans do not get a negative  bounce from their victory in Lincoln.

09/08/2018 - 7:41pm I thought Nebraska looked 1…

I thought Nebraska looked 1,000% better than they have in the past few years. Energized, focused and innovative. Frost does not have the talent yet, but Nebraska will be good as long as he is there, and Wisconsin's dominance of the West will be strongly challenged very soon.  Hopefully Frost's level of class will rise to the level of his coaching.

  It's a Joy to have your excellent insights back again. Now it's really football season. Big thanks as always

08/26/2018 - 7:57am Does anyone know if these…

Does anyone know if these are ongoing scholarships or just for this season? I would imagine that Cheeseman's is for his full education as he is the starting LS. The other two may be short term so that we can use them in the next class. 

08/19/2018 - 10:02am Sam Webb spoke with Weber…

Sam Webb spoke with Weber the night before signing day and he said he was definitely going to Michigan. Rumor has it that when he saw the Higdon commitment on signing day he was offended and flipped back to osu. Speculation has it that he thought he was promised as the only RB in our class.

Mike Sainristil is most likely.  DB/slot from New England. (Don Brown Country).

I have lived on Ibiza for 20 years. Before that 10 years on an island in Thailand.

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: Limited access to Michigan Football. For many years it was only the Int'l Herald Tribune (when I could find one). The last 20 years with internet coverage... leading to live radio... leading to Live Streaming (!) have made this con much more tolerable. It's not the same as having easy TV access to games... but I ain't complaining.

Quentin is definitely committing soon so he is the chalk in this game.

Given the current toxic political climate any discussion of bringing the court even farther to the right is not appropriate for this board.  

06/10/2018 - 4:25pm…

Totally agree. Clarity, readability and easy navigation have been lost.

Old way much more user friendly and sensible.
I realize that I am yelling  :)

06/06/2018 - 3:16pm Never in doubt. Love Coach B!

Never in doubt. Love Coach B!

05/31/2018 - 5:04pm Gracias!

Thank you.  I will try the Reddit streams.  


05/31/2018 - 4:08pm Living in Europe = totally screwed by move to Fox

Those of us living in Europe can pay for a subscription to ESPN player which USED to show all of the good Michigan games (and numerous others). 

Now most of the good games are on cursed fox, and they do not have a system where people outside the country can subscribe for streaming.

We are left with the free streaming sites which are WAY better than nothing, but far lower quality and reliability compared to direct streaming.

Even BTN has an inernational streaming system. If anyone hears of fox adding this kind of service please post it on the board.  Thanks.

05/25/2018 - 2:37pm It's a Deal!

Sam Webb was cautiously optimistic about our chances when Luke Deal  announces tonight. No gut feeling or crystal ball but... he's saying there's a chance...

04/11/2018 - 4:01am Castleton will play

Castleton has too much ability to sit. He is the only big who gives us five out and he is far more athletic than Teske. 


03/29/2018 - 6:25pm New Podcast Link

They changed the link to the podcast a couple of days ago.  New one is below... and here as well:  

02/15/2018 - 3:22pm Thank you

Well said. Go Blue!

02/05/2018 - 1:57pm Not allowed to recruit

Grad assistants are not allowed to recruit - only the 10 actual assistants.

01/23/2018 - 3:45pm It will not be 'unexpected'

It will not be 'unexpected' with Barrett. Kid looks like 4.5 stars but is probably being rated lower  based on being just a QB (or based on stupidity). Offensive player of the year in a tough Georgia division and led the #4 team in the state. Stud!

01/05/2018 - 4:26pm Good call as the likely heir

Good call as the likely heir to Mattison at DL. Hope they keep Bush Sr.  

01/05/2018 - 1:43pm Hawkins a Viper?

I thought Hawkins was working mostly at Viper (in addition to safety).

01/04/2018 - 3:11pm Second that emotion for

Second that emotion for Yurcich. Would love to have an innovative offense that scares people... 

01/01/2018 - 7:13pm Injury

He rolled his ankle... tried to play but had to quit

12/19/2017 - 9:31am Maybe a half step slower but

Maybe a half step slower but similar elusiveness and style... and better hands than Breaston

12/19/2017 - 4:18am His high school is the #8

His high school is the #8 team in the state, so competition probably pretty, pretty good.

12/16/2017 - 7:16pm Not sure what film you guys are watching??

Not sure what film you guys are looking at. Ronald Bell looks like the sleeper recruit of the century. Fast, elusive, great hands and elite athleticism (check out his basketball highlights). Great work by JH and the coaches to find this diamond in the rough. Will make plays for years to come.

And the competition is decent - Park Hill is the #8 team in the state of Missouri.

12/11/2017 - 10:13am Touch the Banner

Magnus does a great job with this.
