08/23/2018 - 1:42pm The problem is you never…

The problem is you never really know if anyone is truly clean. Everyone probably has skeletons in their closet, but you will never know unless somehow it leaks into the public domain. With that said, I think we all love to win. We just don't want it to be at the expense of the school's reputation. Being an alum means a lot to me and when something happens that tarnishes the school's reputation that is always really hard to swallow. And of course college football is such a big business now that it has become far bigger than the academic institution. The academic institutions are basically just an appendage to the football program. It is a very weird dynamic.

01/09/2014 - 12:35pm I most certainly

do not want Harris to decommit, but if the main reason he decided on U of M was Borges than he should consider looking elsewhere. I think he should at least talk with Nuss first, and I really hope he stays. The main thing for me is what doors Nuss will now open with 2015 and maybe even 2014 recruits we are not currently involved with. When one door closes, another door opens. I am just excited to see what doors Nuss is able to open.

06/11/2013 - 11:28am Sorry....Double Post

But Penn Station is good : )

06/11/2013 - 11:22am I have had

Penn Station numerous times as I have a location close to where I live. I love their chicken salad sub. It is delicious. Also the fresh cut fries are very good.

Good Luck Trey : )

03/14/2013 - 3:29pm I sure as hell

hope that is not the case. He actually took it to the rim off the dribble nicely in one of the last couple games. Can't remember which game it was, but I kept thinking why not do that more often.

 

03/14/2013 - 3:25pm I honestly do not understand

why GR3 does not take it to the rim more often. He settles for jump shots when he can dribble and be agressive. He obviously has great elevation. If I had his hops, I would attack the rim ever chance I got.

03/14/2013 - 3:22pm Mcgary

already has a double double with 10 points and 10 boards. What a game. Without him we are down double digits right now.

02/05/2013 - 9:47pm I cannot

Understand how Craft plays so physical and virtually never gets fouls called on him. It is unbelievable. If it was any other player they would foul out every game.

01/18/2013 - 10:16am As a poster said above

He went from Butte to Hutchinson CC in Kansas. Apparently according to Rivals a few schools have offered Conway: Marshall and Mississippi State with Louisiana tech also showing interest.

01/18/2013 - 9:57am To bad he

has not been able to get himself under control. He is a big body with speed and has some talent. Doubt he makes it to Division 1A football, but you never know.

01/17/2013 - 8:29pm What the hell

Is going on with the jersey issues. Maybe Adidas is not paying the sweatshop workers well enough.

01/15/2013 - 2:47pm Not to hijack the thread,

but the front page of ESPN has the following article from an interview with Vincet Smith regarding the hit by Jadeveon Clowney. he is a tough little SOB:

12/11/2012 - 10:42am Holy Crap

they are totally delusional. According to RCMB, possibly only Burke is good enough to start for MSU. What a load of garbage. I also am sick of hearing that Michigan has no depth. Has anyone actually been watching the games this year? We have a 10-11 person rotation so far this year: Burke, Stauskas, Hardaway, GRIII, Morgan, McGary, Horford, Albrecht, Levert, Vogrich and Bielfeldt (when healthy). Not saying this rotation will not be tightened up by the time Big Ten games start, but that is pretty solid depth in my book.

12/04/2012 - 4:09pm Also forgot

to mention that much of his success was recruiting luck. Not trying to knock him for it, but let’s be honest. He managed to get Russell Wilson for one year. No way they would have had success last year without him. Same comment in regards to not having Montee Ball. This year they really were not very good in a weak Big ten conference. Yes they are going to the rose Bowl, but they back doored there way in with 2 teams in their division not being bowl eligible.

12/04/2012 - 4:04pm I am sure

I will be crucified for this, but I am really not all that concerned with losing Bielema. I realize he has had success at Wisconsin (3 Rose Bowls) and a winning record. I also understand this looks bad for the big Ten, but i think Wisconsin can bring in someone to do just as well. It is not like Bielema was a sexy hire when he was promoted to Head Coach. I just was never impressed with him as a head coach. I think a lot of the success was driven by his coordinators, which of course reflects well on him as the head coach as he hired them. I just do not believe he will be successful with his style of football in the SEC unless he is able to do some phenomenal recruiting. Wisconsin when compared to an SEC program like Arkansas does not have near the pressure to win. He is going to feel that pressure to win from day one. I understand the allure of the SEC as they are the hot conference and the South is a hotbed of recruiting, but be careful what you wish for. Win big and win fast or get fired before they contract is up.

01/06/2012 - 9:22am I do not see how

Hoke can keep him on the team. He already had two strikes and now he has to serve jail time. Regardless of the severity of his transgression, he should be gone. And spare me this whole we were all young and make mistakes stuff. He is like what 21 years old? It is not like he is 10. He knows right from wrong. He knew that he was on probation and that driving on a suspended license is against the law. He knew that if caught, he risked jail time. Yet he did it anyway.

01/05/2012 - 11:06am To me the article

implied that he was pulled over by an officer linked to the probation officer. In other words, I think they felt Stonum was lying about how he got to the meeting. The officer who pulled him over probably followed him and once he saw him driving pulled him over. At least that was the impression I got.

01/05/2012 - 10:59am My point is regardles of the severity

of the transgression, he broke the law. He already had two strikes. Let’s remember that he is not just a normal college student. He is a U of M football player on scholarship and he represents the University. Therefore, it will be tough regardless of what the court says for Hoke to sweep this under the rug.

01/05/2012 - 10:37am I do not understand

how people can say this is not a big deal. In and of itself maybe not. The fact is Stonum has been busted twice for drinking and driving. He license was suspended and he got 2 years of probation. He was booted off the team and allowed to potentially earn his way back by doing what Hoke asks of him and playing on the practice squad. i think Michigan went out on a limb to not just cut ties with him already and this is how he repays them. He is a U of M football player. He has to know that anything he does will be visible and in the press. This makes the University look bad, that a player already on probation breaks the law, as driving on a suspended license is against the law. Then he lies to the probation officer when asked how he got to the meeting. This is just plain stupid. He should know better. Therefore to me, in this instance this is a very big deal.

01/05/2012 - 10:30am This is really unfortunate

I do not see how they can allow him back on the team. I think it is time to part ways. We could really have used Stonum for next year, but how dumb can you be. He is driving to his probation officer meeting on a suspended license and then lies to his probation officer saying he was dropped off. If I was him, I would not do anything remotely illegal so that I could get back on the team. He has no one to blame for this but himself.

10/17/2011 - 3:31pm Not trying to give you a hard time

I am sure we can all think of strong armed quarterbacks. One of my personal favorites, is the mullet man himself Jeff George. The man had a cannon and just think what he could have done if his mechanics did not suck. People think Denard throws off his back foot. I can hardly remember seeing a pass from George that wasn't thrown off of his back foot.

10/17/2011 - 3:00pm I can think of at least

one hall of fame quarterback who could throw a football through a wall. That man's name was John Elway.

08/31/2011 - 11:38am I have not

heard anything new regarding Shawn, but I doubt he will get in to U of M. We rarely take JUCO transfers.

08/31/2011 - 10:55am Tom Harmon

I never saw Tom Harmon play in person, but he was a beast from the clips I watched and could basically do everything. Also, he won the Heisman, so he is easily # 1 in my book. There might have been other backs more talented than Mike Hart. I agree with that. I realize that Hart also stayed all 4 years, but he is the leading rusher in U of M history with somewhere in the neighborhood of 5,040 yards. That is pretty darn good. Mike Hart always reminded me of Emmitt Smith, in regards to their styles of play. Undersized, but relentless. Might not be the most physically gifted backs, but they got the job done and did the tough running between the tackles as featured backs.

07/27/2011 - 4:20pm Or you can

change it to Finkle. Finkle is Einhorn. Einhorn is Finkle.

07/21/2011 - 2:24pm Understood.

No worries. I agree about the site quality. I try to be a little more thorough in my searches prior to posting.

07/21/2011 - 11:47am Thanks

dahblue. I have actually frequented this site for years, I just do not post often because of the exact thing you mention. I love this site and will continue to frequent it. I will simply continue to keep my posting to a minimum. It is not worth getting ripped every time you make a mistake. Regardless, this site continues to be a wonderful source of U of M football info and there are a lot of genuinely funny posts.

07/21/2011 - 11:22am Again

I apologize. I did a search and did not find anything. It happens. Get over it.

07/21/2011 - 11:06am My bad

I searched Rick Reilly's name and did not see a posting. No one is perfect.

07/21/2011 - 10:17am Not trying to hijck this thread

But I cannot start my own thread. Did anyone else see this on ESPN from Rick Reilly. The column really annoys me. All this coming from a Colorado fan. I say screw the bastard, he is clearly jealous of the Big Ten. Who can blame him.

06/21/2011 - 11:24am Congrats : )

Best wishes for a happy, healthly and fruitful life together. May the Non-Michigan hating wedding gods smile down upon you.

04/20/2011 - 10:27am According to Wikipedia

In February 2011 he signed with Enel Brindisi until the end of the season. It says he went to play in Europe starting in Jan 2009 after having been out of basketball since Jan 2007.

04/15/2011 - 11:05am if I was still in college maybe

a little OE, Colt 45 or some Crazy Horse. It was all about bang for your buck back in the day. Now if I feel like going domestic maybe some Miller Lite. I also might go with some single malt scotch, such as Oban which is one of my favorites. I also might like to suck down a Hoegaarden.

04/15/2011 - 10:29am I would have to say

It is Miller Time.

03/18/2011 - 8:29pm Not only

was I shocked to see Stu dunk, but he had some mad hops on that dunk. He really got up. I had no idea he could sky like that.

01/06/2011 - 4:07pm Just because

a potential coaching candidate says they have not been contacted, does not mean they have not been contacted. You can talk to their agent to gauge interest as much as you want without actually talking with the potential coaching candidate. That way in reality the coaching candidate can realistically deny any knowledge of contact with a potential suitor.

01/06/2011 - 9:00am Posting here because cannot start new thread

I was driving into work this morning and listening to Mike and Mike. The said that Ross and the Miami Dolphin brass were flying out to meet with Harbaugh. They talked about what poor etiquette this is on the aprt of the Dolphins and Harbaugh as Miami has not even fired their current head coach. It is an unwritten rule that coaching candidates do not talk with teams that currently have a head coach. They most certainly do not meet with them. I am kind of ashamed of Harbaugh on this one. Also Mike and Mike said that the word is that Ross is going to offer Harbaugh 7-8 million per year. If that is true than the NFL owners are idiots. You are telling me that you are going to offer that kind of money to a college coach with little to no NFL experience. That is just crazy and highly insulting to current NFL head coaches. I have nothing at all against Harbaugh and if someone offered me that kind of money i would take it too.

01/04/2011 - 3:24pm God help us

What I need now is to find my tums. This blows.

01/03/2011 - 11:01am Well I stand corrected.

I personally think that Harbaugh will chose the NFL. If the NFL truly wants him than they will likely make him an offer he cannot refuse.

01/03/2011 - 10:49am Um I must have been watching a different

Sportscenter than you. I just watched Schefter say pretty much what he has said all along. He said that Harbaugh is unlikely to stay at Stanford and that a decision will probably be made by Wednesday of this week. He said that all along he felt that if an NFL team can make a compelling enough argument for Harbaugh to leave college football than he will move to the NFL. The question is can San Francisco or
Denver
give Harbaugh what he wants. Only Harbaugh knows that, because who knows what he wants. You would have to think if money is king for Harbaugh than he will likely go to the NFL. If he wants power,
Michigan might be the place for him, unless an NFL team will give him some autonomy, such as personnel decisions both for staff and players, etc. I personally feel that he will end up in the NFL.

01/01/2011 - 6:28pm I would

not be surprised at all that if Michigan fires Rich Rod, he would end up at Pitt. He has already shown that he can be a successful head coach in the Big East.

12/24/2010 - 9:08am Gee you

Gee you wonder where Posey gets his skewed sense of ethics. I do not think it is cut and dry as the student athletes are getting a free education, but universities do make a heck of a lot of money off of the football programs.

I know this is a little off topic, but I saw something on ESPN that caught my interest this morning on ESPN. Mel Kiper was talking about Pryor. He basically said that Pryor is not going to be a QB in the NFL. He will likely be a Tight End. I just thought it was interesting that in my recollection of the Pryor recruitment, he went to
Ohio State because he felt it gave him a better chance to make the NFL vs. playing the Rich Rod spread. Obviously it is not true. If you have talent you will make the NFL regardless, but I do not think especially in this case that
Ohio State better prepared him for the NFL than
Michigan
could have. The definitely did not make him a better QB and of course this is just my opinion. I am glad I was able to get this off my chest. Thank you all for listening to my early morning banter.

10/10/2010 - 1:47pm Why

can't I have my cake and eat it to? I want the recruit and the win. Is that so wrong? If that is wrong than I do not want to be right.

10/10/2010 - 1:45pm Could

not agree with you more on this. Take the win.

10/10/2010 - 1:43pm I find

that I am very interested in seeing how the team responds to the loss. I really hated losing to MSU, but I am fascinated to see how this team bounces back. I want to see us get smacked in the mouth and bounce back with a win. I think that is how you measure the quality of the team. They get knocked down, but that bounce back up. I honestly do not believe it will be like last year when we collapsed after the MSU game. I think the team has grown. We have plenty of deficiencies, but I do think we are moving in the right direction. I just get this feeling that if we can bounce back and beat a quality opponent in
Iowa
, than I think it will be a launching pad for good things to come from the program. I am excited for
Iowa
and even more excited that I will be at the game. GO BLUE!
