When you have many many dark secrets still to hide, you do this.

A despicable university that should be demolished.

"Playing some obscure experimental stuff a lot"\

That's been there M.O. for the last 20 years, making obscure experimental music.

Yep, I'll be seeing Radiohead for the first time ever.

And then the Pumpkins 2 weeks after that.

Am I the only one who caught the " I don't know where my mind has been lately" ...Where Is My Mind? reference.

This shouldn't be a big deal.  So what, they changed their mind.  Kid has plenty of time to find a home.  Welcome to the world of "offers" vs. "Committable offers".  

Ten years ago that term didn't exist.

Good for Duncan and well deserved.

iT's too bad he got screwed with the terrible foul calls  in the NC game, it would have been nice to have him on the floor.

Brandy & Dierdorf are brutal.  I would give Mat Shep a good look.  He’s very good at M basketball.

07/05/2018 - 7:59am I think the real heads up…

I think the real heads up came from Professor Brown, when he started talking about DMc last year when everyone was asking about Peters.  The fact that he was offering the info was like him saying "this is the kid that I think is the one to watch".  That may not mean a lot to some of you, but it's called reading between the lines.

07/04/2018 - 3:47pm I think he’s the starter in…

I think he’s the starter in 19 over Milton.  Hopefully we can get him some reps this year.

07/01/2018 - 8:42pm Yes I agree there is a…

Yes I agree there is a disconnect.  If you can’t admit it then you’re not being honest.  I don’t however think it’s because of last years record.  We just aren’t prioritizing the local kids as much as we should IMO and they can sense it.

Some of you are just flat out in denial.  I said the same thing about OH 2 years ago and got ripped apart on here.  Apparently someone agreed because a bigger emphasis has been placed on OH.

We need to fix the disconnect, plain and simple.

Those of you stating “who cares where the talent comes from” just don’t get it.

4.45 is fast if its a real time

What WR are we recruiting for this class?

It would seem like a priority with us only getting one last year whose probably a slot.

Fishing.

What a beautiful thing.

This 19 class is going to be the monster class we all thought it would.

Exciting times.

A big year on the field will put this program in Top 5 territory. Very important year.  Time to deliver.

06/25/2018 - 4:40am It's nice to see Michigan…

It's nice to see Michigan hitting the state of Ohio hard this year in recruiting.  I was almost run out of here for suggesting we need to do this about a year ago.

06/22/2018 - 9:21pm This is pretty cool.

This is pretty cool.

Love them #4's.

06/22/2018 - 12:11pm Yes, definitely and if he…

Yes, definitely and if he get's drafted in the top 3 rounds next year he's probably gone, but we might as well give him a chance to see what happens.

06/22/2018 - 11:24am This kid is a phenomenal…

This kid is a phenomenal athlete.  He seems underrated in football.  Is it because he is a baseball player?  His offer sheet doesn't make sense unless its because schools thought he was only interested in baseball.

Great get.  Seems like a no brainer for viper.

06/20/2018 - 10:12pm I would imagine the hours…

I would imagine the hours would be insane.  If I had to guess a minimum of 60 and probably more.  

06/20/2018 - 7:39pm Nice to finally break the…

Nice to finally break the Belleville fast.  Hopefully he grows another inch or two but you can’t teach 4.3 speed.

06/20/2018 - 9:27am Webber’s pissed because the…

Webber’s pissed because the fab five were exploited.  Too many of you are so quick to jump to judgement.  Ed Martin was not a booster for the University.  He gave kids stuff regardless of where they went to school.  He was then desperate to launder the money he was earning through his numbers ring.  Webber DID make tens of millions for the university.  

Even if he did give Webber money it wasn’t in exchange for Chris going to UM.  If Ed Martin wanted to give Webber money knowing he was a bonafide future star then that’s on him.  The problem was it was laundered.

The Martin scandal is the most misunderstood scandal ever.  We way overpaid for our mistakes.  The only mistake was letting Martin get close to the program but that was tough because he already had relationships with some players and P Watson.  Fisher had a tough task of playing by the rules and pleasing his young stars.

And for those of you saying “they didn’t win anything” please...

They earned their place in history.

Hang the banners.

06/19/2018 - 10:26pm Can someone show me evidence…

Can someone show me evidence of Webber taking any money?  He very well may have but where is the proof or evidence?  How does anyone know?  As far as I know the feds never proved anything other than forcing Webber to admit that he lied to them.

06/19/2018 - 8:50am We'll find out if they flew…

We'll find out if they flew under the radar.  I still think last years class was a major clunker but I would love to be wrong.  This year's class needs to be great.  This season is massively important to the long term success of the program.

And I would still love to know what's going on with our in-state recruiting, because it's important to fix whatever is wrong.

06/18/2018 - 8:27pm He used to attend Detroit…

He used to attend Detroit King so I assume his family moved to Belleville???

Uh yeah...

06/18/2018 - 12:58pm SOS is an odd metric.  OSU…

SOS is an odd metric.  OSU is 87th and has TCU on the road.  MSU is 33rd and has Az St. on the road.  MSU conference might be slightly tougher as they have NW and OSU has MN.  The rest of the teams are pretty much irrelevant.

06/17/2018 - 11:39am Or you can just admit the…

Or you can just admit the truth Sten.  We are without question getting our asses kicked in in state recruiting.  Outstate recruiting wasn’t so hot either last year if you really want to know the truth.  

And trust me I love this program as much as anyone on this board.

06/16/2018 - 10:37pm It is sad.  We are getting…

It is sad.  We are getting our asses kicked in instate recruiting and I’m not sure anyone cares, because if they did, they might do something about it.

06/16/2018 - 1:53pm Wheatley was phenomenal his…

Wheatley was phenomenal his sophomore year but then he started adding weight and lost a step and was injury prone.  I think Hart and Perry were at least as good from a career standpoint.

06/15/2018 - 6:37am So we're trying to catch the…

So we're trying to catch the big boys with Tru Wilson as our 3rd RB and Jake McCurry at WR???

And our head coach is saying things like a third of our scholarship roster isn't good enough to compete.

We can't recruit the state of Michigan for some reason.

That's just...

Great.

Wonderful.

06/13/2018 - 6:11am This makes no sense and…

This makes no sense and frankly we should have passed on him.  

06/09/2018 - 9:12pm You can disagree all you…

You can disagree all you want Roanman, but its a fact.  You and I aren't the ones that decide if the field was strong or weak.  Justify is a very good horse but he didn't beat one good horse today.  

06/09/2018 - 7:53pm Let’s be honest.  That was a…

Let’s be honest.  That was a very weak field.  Very weak.

06/09/2018 - 7:52pm Let’s be honest.  That was a…

Let’s be honest.  That was a very weak field.  Very weak.

No chance

I’ve never despised another coach more.  He’s a cheater, liar and enabler.  He has sold his soul numerous times and is a piece of shit.  

06/07/2018 - 6:05pm Sorry to see Kekoa go, I…

Sorry to see Kekoa go, I really thought with a good QB and a good WR coach that he would contribute this fall.  He could of been the hero of the MSU game if it weren't for the holding on Higdon.  And he always gave his all when blocking.

I wish him well.

 

 

06/04/2018 - 11:16am Peters & Walker?

Someone on Mlive says its these two.
Can anyone confirm?

06/04/2018 - 10:55am Wheatley

I still think Wheatley would make an outstanding OT. His frame is massive and he could hold 300lbs easy and move real well. And while we’re on the topic I also think Ryan Hayes’ most upside is undoubtedly as an OL as well.

06/04/2018 - 10:48am Next

This is a very crucial year. Harbaugh could alleviate a lot of pressure if he wins the BIG. Also, it’s important that we have a good year for recruiting. Another class like last years would be a big hit to the program. Everything is in place for this to be a big year. It’s time to deliver.

06/03/2018 - 7:17pm It’s amazing

There is 0 chance.
And for those of you trying to sell this as Beilein reaching the pinnacle in his profession give me a fucking break. Nobody cares about the NBA.
Let me reiterate this.
There is a less than zero chance of this happening.

06/03/2018 - 4:24pm I hope its not Kekoa

I still believe in him.

Kid hasn't had a decent QB or a WR coach for that matter.

06/02/2018 - 10:03am Got you covered HL

Saw Pearl Jam at the Blind Pig and St Andrews where he did scale the balcony and jump off.

06/02/2018 - 9:57am Very impressed

Dbw as the resident music snob I have to say I’m very impressed with the Terry Reid vote.

06/01/2018 - 10:39am how so?

i'm all ears.

06/01/2018 - 1:56am Harbaugh

Year 1 - With the exception of OSU 2nd half, the team played well.  Utah was very winnable, I'd put that on Ruddock.  The MSU debacle stung bad, but really that was more luck than anything.  Popular sentiment is that Durkin's head may have been elsewhere in the OSU game.  Impressive bowl romp.   Overall grade - B

Year 2 - Going into Iowa we were a Top 3 team.  This was the first game where I think poor coaching actually cost us.  We were conservative on offense and when we needed 5 yards on 3rd down, it seemed like time after time we had a 25 yard pass called.  Speight got hurt as a result of this and really we were playing to let the defense win, which they didn't do.  We all know what happened in Columbus.  The refs and secondly a wounded QB that couldn't get it done.  Could still have been an excellent year but a sub par performance in the Orange Bowl in a game we still should have won if not for Jourdan Lewis getting beat (in one of his worst games at M) and Jordan Glasgow missing a huge tackle on the kickoff.  Overall Grade - B

Year 3 - Not a good year for several reasons.  The 3 main reasons IMO were poor QB play, an offensive coaching staff that just didn't gel & some may not agree with this but reason #3 was a defense that wasn't good enough to take over a game when we needed them.  Youth and inexperience was also a factor.  This season really boiled down to 2 games that we shouldn't have lost MSU & SC.  I think the coaching error in the MSU game was that we weren't aggressive enough in the 1st half when we knew a monsoon was coming in the 2nd half.  That and really poor QB play that was too much to overcome.  Still we had 2 weeks to prepare, and we laid an egg.  Highly disappointing.  Wiscy was winnable if not for Peters going down and the defense failing to win it on their own.  The coaches did an excellent job and were prepared for OSU.  Again, without a QB we just couldn't execute the plan.  The bowl game against SC really summed up the season.  We got out to a comfortable lead, couldn't put them away, again part to poor QB play (this time Peters) and the defense simply couldn't win a game on their own that they should have.  Grade = C- 

05/30/2018 - 10:49pm Ohtani

Wasn't even sharp tonight.

He couldn't command his fast ball.  He was coming off a 10 day lay off.

But that's how good his stuff is.  He can be off and still only give up 1 run in 5IP.

In other news, Alex Reyes wasn't very sharp either.

05/29/2018 - 6:52am OL

Hayes has OL written all over him, not sure why he's even messing with TE IMO.
