Dude looks like a genetic freak. I hope he doesn't become another Shane Morris. I wish him nothing but the best. I hope he leaves a legacy here.
|08/16/2018 - 2:48pm||Yeah man. If McCaffrey…||
Yeah man. If McCaffrey really is the clear #4, then don't expect him to be hear come this time next year. I'm sure he would transfer...and I wouldn't blame him.
|08/14/2018 - 9:15am||People applauded JOK during…||
People applauded JOK during Purdue because he actually looked and played like a QB (the one and only time he was able to do this). Every other performance by JOK was either a tire fire or close to.
Peters QB play last year was "applauded" last year because he didn't lose us the game. That being said, I know it feels like forever since we have had one, but a QB can actually help you win games. Peters hasn't shown that ability yet. Patterson has and hopefully McCaffrey will too.
|08/12/2018 - 8:49pm||Yeah, I don't really…||
Yeah, I don't really understand some of the most recent commitments we have taken. They seem like reaches at this point in the game. If this was late January I would get it. Right now, not so much.
|08/11/2018 - 10:35pm||My neighbor has one too. He…||
My neighbor has one too. He had a connection with the supplier of Michigan's jersey's before they went to Adidas. He has the "Bowl Jersey" of the best player on Michigan for about the 7-8 years prior to Adidas.

Boston Six you said it! Thank you UMBig11 for being such a fun contributor to the board. Your posts are always appreciated by so many.

Mike Golic Jr had a great take regarding this topic on ESPN. Number one, mentioned how sad it could be that these players get a similar / harsher sentence than Urban Meyer may get. Two, that as a player at ND he could sell back his books to the University and pocket the money and that was OK. So what's the real difference? The school buys your books for you and you then sell them and that's ok, but you cannot sell the athletic apparel you get for free from the University? I thought it was a fairly logical argument.
|08/07/2018 - 1:10am||Man, our football players…||
Man, our football players are in no danger of trying to resell these shoes in the secondary market. Those are just butt ugly. What about some classic Jordan 3's that are white and have slight maize and blue highlights!?
|08/03/2018 - 5:57pm||If there is an actual paper…||
If there is an actual paper trail...an actual report created due to Urban reporting Smith...then I think he could be safe. If there is no paper trail that confirms Urban actually reported the incident, then it is just words.
|08/01/2018 - 12:14pm||I don't know how Warriner…||
I don't know how Warriner would bear any responsibility for what has played out. The chain of command ends with Urban Meyer. It appears through text messages that Urban's wife was made aware of the situation in 2015. Whether she passed that info on to her husband or not, I don't know if that's been confirmed.
Now, if Warriner knew before Urban Meyer did and said nothing to his Superior then there might be a case. Or if Warriner knew, told Urban, and knew that Urban did nothing about it and didn't then go the the Athletic Director then that would also look quite bad.
|07/28/2018 - 8:09pm||Thank Goodness it was…||
Thank Goodness it was Umbig11 that dropped a realistic rating on Harbaugh and his performance. Anyone else would have been crucified.
His record against his rivals has been way below what we imagined. OL and QB recruiting / development has been well below what we thought. Harbaugh has had to rely on Transfer QB's to save his arse.
7.5 is a fair rating. I agree with legendary Umbig11.
|07/23/2018 - 2:33pm||Yeah man, I totally get that…||
Yeah man, I totally get that 17-18 year old kids are gonna act like 17-18 year old kids, but why deny all the Stanford interest. At least that is what i remember (I could be wrong) concerning his comments. That he seemed fairly strong in saying that Stanford wasn't in the running anymore, etc. Oh well, best of luck young man.
|07/13/2018 - 9:40am||If Franklin can be excellent…||
If Franklin can be excellent at the "X's and O's" then Penn State could be the next Clemson. I just don't think he has the ability coaching wise to be excellent.
|07/11/2018 - 9:53pm||I don't get why Coaching…||
I don't get why Coaching staffs do that to kids...even Michigan. Why be a prick to a kid by not calling him when he is a commit and just tell him up front that you have changed your mind based upon his current film and production. Don't get the childish "Lets not call him for 2 months so he ends up decommitting." Kind of like acting like a complete ass to your girlfriend so you can say that she broke up with you. Just be up front with the kid.
|07/11/2018 - 9:50pm||Agreed. Those were odd…||
Agreed. Those were odd comments and I assume poster never read the article. Top 300 kid at a skill position. Dude will land at an amazing school and be so glad he didn't get locked up with a Coach that would do that to a kid.
|07/11/2018 - 6:09pm||I get it...kid will accept a…||
I get it...kid will accept a full ride athletic scholarship from another great school, but this just speaks to the lack of integrity in college recruiting. I also know this swings both way. The student athlete can back out of a commitment at any time too.
I think one expects more from a grown ass man and an institution like Notre Dame. You extend a kid an offer and kid accepts it. You then rescind offer 5 days later!? What the Hell!? I expect "wishy washy" from a kid under the age of 18. I don't expect douche baggery like this from a grown man...but this is Kelly we are talking about.
|07/11/2018 - 5:51pm||That seems crazy, unless the…||
That seems crazy, unless the kid is ranked way too high. If I'm remembering from the article correctly, the gentleman is a top 300 recruit. You just don't turn those away half handedly. Unless you're Alabama.
|07/11/2018 - 5:49pm||Yeah man. Kid presents…||
Yeah man. Kid presents himself well on his statement. Wished Notre Dame well...Etc. You hope that he kid did something really really stupid for Kelly to do something like this, but that's asking Kelly to be classy...something I don't think he cares much about.
|07/08/2018 - 2:23pm||LSA...I agree with your…||
LSA...I agree with your point but for the "Henne, Hart' Michigan teams. They failed for 4 years, but I put the majority of blame on Carr. Go back and look at the NFL talent on both sides of the ball during those years. CRAZY talent...."Alabama" type of talent on the field. That OSU wasn't beaten in that 4 year span, or that we didn't win another NC is kinda shocking.
|07/08/2018 - 2:19pm||Those were the "Golden Years…||
Those were the "Golden Years" when our QB, RB and WR got drafted year in and year out.
Michigan has just had horrific luck with RB recruits. Think of the 5 Star busts...Grady, Green, Isaac (bust for me if you are a 5 Star and not even land the starting role). Then look at man of the highly rated recruits that were close to 5 stars that flamed out...such as our friend that just exited from NJ. Also, our OL situation hasn't helped things either.
|06/27/2018 - 1:39pm||The commitments keep on…||
The commitments keep on rolling. Reminds me of the historic weekend with Hoke. Wasn't that 8 commits in like 48 hours?
|06/25/2018 - 5:27pm||AK47...your arguments are to…||
AK47...your arguments are to logical and objective. LOL.
|06/07/2018 - 5:31pm||Kareem Walker...just add him…||
Kareem Walker...just add him to the list of high profile recruit RB that just couldn't make an impact in AA. All the best to him though. Man do we have tough luck getting production out of "stud recruit" RB's.
|05/25/2018 - 10:23pm||Correction....Dobbs and Brown||
Correction....Dobbs and Brown would bust if they came to Michigan. Since they are going to other school, they are destined to be 3 year starters and All Big Ten Honors.
|05/24/2018 - 7:34pm||The bar is pretty freaking||
The bar is pretty freaking low. If he can actually be a part of the offense that helps us win games it will be a game changer.

Heading to Topsail Beach in North Carolina. That place is our family's jam for this holiday weekend. Wishing everyone a fun and safe holiday weekend.
|05/14/2018 - 1:02pm||The truth is that the||
The truth is that the admissions process has become exponentially more competitivie across the board at virtually every quality insitution of higher education...as well as the price.
20 years ago what would get you accepted then, wouldnt today. I have seen this first hand walking my son (rising Senior) through the college selection process. You better be taking honors or AP classes only as well as plenty of leadership, volunteer, and other extracurricular activities. It truly takes a "team" to get your child set up and competitive to gain admission to schools such as Michigan.
Unfortunately, most (not all mind you, but the majority for sure) students who will qualify for these top tier schools will be of a higher socio-economic status. They are the ones whose parents can afford the prep school, tutoring, standized test prep, etc. It is going to be as it always has been. The "uncommon" man (power, influence, wealth) will have access to better options / percieved better options (on average) than the common man.
The truth is, that for 95% of the population, what school you go to will have little effect to your possibilities. Most corporations and businesses solely want to see if you have a degree. That's it. I work for a Biotech company and more than 50% of the people I work with have degrees from schools most have never heard of before.
|05/13/2018 - 4:51pm||I don't like admitting it,||
I don't like admitting it, but I don't think the criticism is gonna stop until we have a season that is outstanding. What is an outstanding season? Well, I think just about any Michigan fan would say beating MSU, OSU and winning a Bowl game. That is an outstanding season.
If you can forget from whom the statements are coming from and just look at the content...it isn't far off nor unfair.
|05/12/2018 - 11:50am||Wolverine1987, you made the||
Wolverine1987, you made the point I was trying to much clearer. Joe Milton is an athletic freak, but no way he is "tied" for the staring role...heck, there is no way he is in the ballpark of being second string.
His highlight tape (all one can really go on) was so raw (cut laiden with freakish ability) that he is gonna have to make incredible leaps and bounds to even start by his Junior year. Is that possible...sure. Is that probable...no.
|05/11/2018 - 7:47pm||I love swagger. I love kids||
I love swagger. I love kids believing in themselves. Joe is confident in what he brings to the position and I think that is cool. But if any real and true reporter who has credibility echos what Joe is claiming "That it is really and truly a 4 way tie for starting QB" we are EFFED.
Shea Patterson will be our starting QB. Period. End of Story.
|05/03/2018 - 7:01pm||A couple of undefeated||
A couple of undefeated seasons. A National Championship. Complete and utter domination of your biggest rival. Urban isn't going to change that formula or recipe. Tweak it maybe...but he is gonna be running the same / similar thing that has made him probably the second most dominate college football coach in the last 10 years behind Saban.
|05/02/2018 - 3:18pm||Even worse! "Ze Scouts||
Even worse! "Ze Scouts Cookies"! That sound like really cheap Meijer French cookies.
|05/02/2018 - 1:14pm||Somehow, I don't think it's||
Somehow, I don't think it's going to go over very well. Like...how do you market "Them Scouts Cookies"?
|04/29/2018 - 4:40pm||Agreed!!! If Shea isn't our||
Agreed!!! If Shea isn't our starting QB, then 247 wouldn't be writing such an article. If anyone other than Shea is our starting QB next year, barring some crazy advancement in skill and ability that no one has been alerted to by the other QB's, we will have another "meh" season as last year.
|04/29/2018 - 10:25am||LOL, made me laugh Dr. I||
LOL, made me laugh Dr. I think Shea, as everyone here and the media is expecting, is the missing link to our team being able to get over the hump. Furthermore, I sure did like seeing all those OSU players drafted. Reminded me of us in the previous draft. Zero reason why we cannot beat OSU and MSU this year...as long as Shea is healthy.
|04/29/2018 - 10:22am||You may not like my opinion,||
You may not like my opinion, but it is a weak reply to just spout out "nonsense" and neg me. Why not engage with my post and actually share an opinion with some weight behind it that challenges my premise?
I see zero objective proof, that at Michigan, JH has been able to recruit, coach, and present a quarterback that can actually help win games and lead the team down the field. Please share with me how you think this is incorrect.
|04/28/2018 - 9:27pm||First and foremost, super||
First and foremost, super pumped that we have what seems to be a talented capable QB that can actually play a part in winning games for us. Our season next year looks so much brighter than if this did not happen.
Secondly, this is a continued indictment that Coach Harbaugh still has not / can not recruit and develope a QB that is capable of leading a team consistently down the field and actually play a real part in winning games....not just hoping to all that is good that our QB doesn't lose the game for us. Most certainly, our two best seasons under JH will be with transfer QB's that will have saved his rear end.
|04/24/2018 - 7:46pm||When Michigan was the number||
When Michigan was the number one State people were leaving (for I believe 3-4 years in a row) in the last decade, that doesn't bode well for an increased talent pool.
|04/24/2018 - 7:43pm||I agree with AK, but he lost||
I agree with AK, but he lost me with "Our QB recruting has been good". That is straight up delusional. Our QB recruiting has been so bad during Harbaugh's tenure, that he has resorted to the prayer of getting transfer QB's to come in for a year and save his arse. We habe yet to see any QB Harbaugh has recruited look anything like a competent QB. I know it's been a while, but QB's are actually supposed to help you win games. Crap, we went nuts over a QB coming last year and just making a couple of completions. That tells us the pathetic state of our QB situation.
|04/24/2018 - 7:39pm||Harbaugh has won the||
Harbaugh has won the recruiting battle in Michigan the last couple of years and that has had little to do with us beating Michigan State. That tells us enough right there the value we should put on whether Sparty beats us out on a couple of top kids.
|04/24/2018 - 7:37pm||Our "QB recruiting is good"||
Our "QB recruiting is good" you say. What objective evidence do you have for that. What I do know is Harbaugh is having to look and pray for transfer QB's to come in and save his arse because the one's he has recruited cannot produce on the field.
Seriously, when was the last time we had a QB that you actually felt confident with...that you actually thought could go out and win a game for Michigan? Our greatest hope for the last decade is a QB that doesn't lose the game for us. One that can just stay out of the way. Kind of pathetic compared to the tradition that we once had. But today is a different reality.
|04/15/2018 - 7:48pm||With a college weight and||
With a college weight and nutrition program, if a kid doesn’t bulk up it’s vecause that kid isn’t working hard. It is physically impossible to train the way they do, eat the way they do and not bulk up if someone wanted to bulk up. Hitting the weights with a kick arse strength coach + pounding your body with protein= weight gain.
|04/15/2018 - 2:54pm||True dat. I agree. Wrong||
True dat. I agree. Wrong place to right said post.
|04/15/2018 - 2:41pm||I get ya, but I have no||
I get ya, but I have no problem if someone wants to rip Terry Richardson as a Michigan player (objectively looking at his performance and making a fair analysis...even if it is not positive). Doesn't look good, but they have that right. As a player he was a tremendous let down.
Furthermore, as I type this, Terry Richardson is laughing all the way to the bank. He got a FREE 4 year degree from one of the Nations leading Public insitutions. That is what is most important. Give my kid a free 4 year degree to Michigan and you can rip him all day long on a random message board. LOL
|04/15/2018 - 2:17pm||That is GOOD perspective. If||
That is GOOD perspective. If Don Brown finds him capable, I don't care if he is 4'9" and 79lbs.
|04/15/2018 - 2:14pm||Terry Richardson probably has||
Terry Richardson probably has to be the biggest flop in Michigan recruiting of the last 10 years. I beleive he was our highest rated, or at least top 3 rated, recruit for the class, and I don't think he saw anything but mop up duty.
|04/15/2018 - 2:12pm||Agreed. 247 profile has him||
Agreed. 247 profile has him at 147lbs I believe. That looks like Terry Richardson size. If he is gonna stay at CB, he is going to habe to gain 20lbs at least.
|04/14/2018 - 2:55pm||And the VA will 100% cover||
And the VA will 100% cover this if the veteran has gotten enrolled in the VA system. That is necessary. A vet isn’t automatically enrolled. They have to get service connected and then coverage should be 100%.
|04/14/2018 - 2:52pm||Hate to say this, but it is||
Hate to say this, but it is the truth. Glioblastoma is one of the worst cancers to get. There is zero cure and it will be fatal, and usually within. 12-18 months. Best if money is set up for his kids if he has any. College fund would be a much better use of money and his legacy.
