It's currently at 2036.
|02/17/2009 - 12:08pm||Rodriguez ran a pass-happy||
Rodriguez ran a pass-happy spread at Tulane with Shaun King, so I assume the same would have happened. But yeah, 5-7 or maybe 6-6 if we were really lucky. Injuries would have still sucked, etc.
|02/17/2009 - 11:20am||I'm setting my bar at about 5||
I'm setting my bar at about 5 wins. I realize this is a process and we're not there yet, maybe not even halfway. But if Tate's accuracy is even solid, we're not going to see him sailing the ball over players heads when they're wide open. He's going to be better passer and runner.
|02/16/2009 - 7:01pm||Rodriguez likes to have 4-6||
Rodriguez likes to have 4-6 good QB's to work with, and I assume he won't go Terrelle Pryor and focus on one guy. Christian Green, Devin Gardner, Bolden? I'm sure the QB board is chalked full right now.
|02/16/2009 - 4:13pm||They would have had 6, with||
They would have had 6, with one incoming freshmen.
|02/16/2009 - 1:59pm||Where is this wildcat coming||
Where is this wildcat coming from? It is used primarily by pro-style offenses as a wrinkle. Aside from Tulsa most spread teams don't really use it.
|02/16/2009 - 1:57pm||He'll be up here for the 7v7||
He'll be up here for the 7v7 camp this summer, I know that much.
|02/16/2009 - 1:56pm||Nah, he pitches balls in||
Nah, he pitches balls in practice and makes the first D look good.
|02/16/2009 - 11:37am||I laughed a lot.||
I laughed a lot.
|02/16/2009 - 11:08am||I can't complain if he does||
I can't complain if he does actually transfer. More depth/security is nice. Who knows his reasoning (if this is all true).
|02/15/2009 - 5:32pm||Well he's played in a||
Well he's played in a multitude of offenses.. lol.

Junior Hemingway is known as "June the Goon"... Toney Clemons goes by Clem Vaughn for some reason? Eck.

Have fun without a quarterback or any semblance of a passing game!

Ryan Jelley (the author of that) is a pretty good guy he is closer to the program than most of the kids that write there. But most of what he writes is with rivals/scout help. So take it for what it is.
|02/09/2009 - 6:33pm||DONT SPEAK HIS NAME!||
DONT SPEAK HIS NAME!
|02/09/2009 - 6:27pm||Agreed. I think Rodriguez and||
Agreed. I think Rodriguez and the staff want it to be like this, and ultimately it's not only going to make them a better team, but better men on and off the field. It's a really good sign, there is a lot of positivity coming out of the program since every journalist tries to rip on it.
|02/07/2009 - 4:28pm||Indeed, they have a solid mix||
Indeed, they have a solid mix of 2/3 star talent with one 4 star from Florida (6**, 6***, 1****).
|02/07/2009 - 11:28am||Good point. Though most||
Good point. Though most coaches aren't as arrogant as Kiffin, and I'm wondering if most of it, (if not all) is just flare for the fans/players and alumni etc.
Believe me I wouldn't want to be Kiffin when Florida comes to town...
|02/07/2009 - 11:01am||He was a solid receiver as||
He was a solid receiver as well as DB, so maybe he can do some special teams/returning too (when healthy)?
|02/07/2009 - 12:21am||Yeah there was something||
Yeah there was something about in passing drills receivers were getting hit in the head because they weren't ready for his delivery speed. I hope it's true.
|02/05/2009 - 3:01pm||Yep. Rodriguez has stated||
Yep. Rodriguez has stated many times he wants to grow the team with walk-on's, around 95-100+ players.
|02/04/2009 - 7:27pm||Kevin Grady is on rivals as||
Kevin Grady is on rivals as one of the biggest recruiting busts, sadly. The kid was unstoppable in high school (played against him) and still has talent.. he's just in the doghouse. Permanently. Saw him the other day too.
|02/03/2009 - 9:23pm||Most of the "Why not UM?"||
Most of the "Why not UM?" questions were answered by "Because they didn't offer, or no interest." So technically, we can't lose a recruiting battle we aren't fighting, eh Tom?
|02/03/2009 - 9:19pm||While you've brought up this||
While you've brought up this point many times recently, I don't think it will stop the hysteria that spreads with the commitment of a player like Tate Forcier or Ricardo.
Tate hasn't really responded to anything via facebook (which is smarter, I feel), while Ricardo has been open (which is admirable, but he's a kid, as you said, not a king or whatever). Ultimately, people need to chill out about this stuff. I love Ricardo's personality, but we need to leave him alone. Yeah, it's ok to maybe write on his wall, but enough doubts and "Are you staying blue OMG?!?"
Good stuff Chitown.
|02/03/2009 - 8:37pm||My claim to fame (some day),||
My claim to fame (some day), I was his 3rd or 4th friend when he made his facebook. Lol!
|02/03/2009 - 8:01pm||While I think we've taken our||
While I think we've taken our love/obsession for Ricardo too far, I love the work the kid is doing. He's a really great guy, if you friend him on facebook he'll talk to you, he's the kind of kid we want around Ann Arbor. So I hope he's preachin hard, lol.
|02/03/2009 - 7:57pm||Or they may grayshirt, where||
Or they may grayshirt, where they will go to school (on their own funding) for a semester or year before they gain a scholarship. It's tough to say, I'd be pissed if I was one of those kids.
|02/03/2009 - 7:20pm||I love how when Baker was||
I love how when Baker was asked "Why not UM?"
I hope somebody knocks his ass on the field every play.
|02/03/2009 - 3:05pm||I find myself slightly||
I find myself slightly saddened that a coach has to bash another school in order to grab another player. I have no problem with coaches being overly-confident in their schools and program, but that's not something I'd like.
When I was getting recruited my junior/senior year (albeit it was for divison II lacrosse, but the process is similar), coaches weren't bashing others, even when two rivals both recruited me. That's pretty classless. Then again, a lot of coaches aren't about class, it's about the W's for the contract extension.

Hoyer- I laughed out loud.

Lemming is kind of an idiot. Though so is Webb. Neither of them listens to each other.
|01/31/2009 - 9:00pm||Hubert Davis (the youngest,||
Hubert Davis (the youngest, go figure) was the only one who wasn't like "OMG MICHIGAN SUCKZ AND CHEATZ! BAN THEM!".
I liked Bob Knight before, but I'm tired of him sucking ESPN dick. Fuck them all.
|01/31/2009 - 6:13pm||I have two good friends who||
I have two good friends who played against Witty, and a few days ago I asked them what they liked, etc, or didn't like about him.
He was quite regarded pre-injury, and after it nobody expected him to do anything. He came back, played well, and actually helped his team a lot in the playoffs. Obviously, he's not going to step in and guard the oppositions #1 guy. But I think he'll make an impact, whether its as a nickle guy, or returner, in the coming years.
Plus, we need CB's.
|01/30/2009 - 3:48pm||To be honest I don't believe||
To be honest I don't believe what you say (most of the time), but I love reading it. It's strange.
|01/29/2009 - 9:02pm||He and his family is||
He and his family is originally from Flint, and his mother went of U of M, and they love it.
Plus, he's a badass.
|01/29/2009 - 4:58pm||Really? I played at Forest||
Really? I played at Forest Hills Central.
|01/27/2009 - 8:29pm||Seconded.||

Use rivals. They are legitimate.
|01/26/2009 - 4:35pm||So Miles decided to give him||
So Miles decided to give him a full scholarship then? There was talk about him grayshirting, and that was apparently annoying him.
Oh well, it was a far-chance anyways.
|01/26/2009 - 3:09pm||Adrian Whitty wasn't a bad||
Adrian Whitty wasn't a bad player, he was highly regarded until an injury took most of his senior season. But as articles say, he led his team deep into the playoffs and was excellent on both sides of the ball.
Not a Justin Turner immediate-impact I think, but a possible nickle or dime guy if given time.
|01/25/2009 - 4:31pm||I love when JT was asked||
I love when JT was asked about [other schools] he told them,
|01/25/2009 - 1:33pm||"I don't wanna be home for||
"I don't wanna be home for christmas next year, that's all I gotta say".
Fuck yeah I love this guy.

You and your piece of #$&*%#* family!

Well in that case, shame on ESPN.
|01/23/2009 - 10:21am||We have offered both Robinson||
We have offered both Robinson and Witty. Robinson's coach said Michigan is in his "top 2" but he doesn't know who the other team is. The nice thing is Denard really wants to play with Witty, so that helps us.
|01/22/2009 - 3:50pm||I think coaches try to stress||
I think coaches try to stress for players not to post on forums or read up on things too many times. Of course, if I'm Tim Tebow, I absorb all the internet into my greatness, so there is no escaping.
|01/22/2009 - 1:55pm||I friended him on facebook a||
I friended him on facebook a while ago and asked if he liked snow. He promptly responded (all-caps) "Heck yeah man!".
|01/22/2009 - 12:05pm||If Robinson can somehow help||
If Robinson can somehow help increase our turnover differential (by god I have no idea how, but I hope), and can teach solid fundamentals, I can see this defense improving.
Does he roam around the sidelines? I prefer that to the ol' booth coaching. Mcgee is just a fatass I can see why he sits up there.
|01/21/2009 - 4:51pm||He may turn out to be a||
He may turn out to be a decent coverage nickle guy. Who knows.
