Feeling okay about the signing day trade-off of Higdon instead of Weber

11/16/2017 - 3:32pm Tailgating?

I’ll be there on Saturday as well. Weather looks chilly, but will anybody be out tailgating? A lot of bar suggestions, is that kind of how the pre-gaming in Madison is set up? Or are people gonna be getting together somewhere to tailgate? If so, what are the best places for that?

Michigan has a solid candidate to do Butt stuff in Ian Bunting.

10/17/2016 - 1:25pm Official Visits to opposing team during UM week

With likely several NJ recruits taking in the 78-0 Rutgers massacre, it got me to thinking what if any impact there might be for recruits taking their OV to opposing teams during Michigan week?  Obviously they do not get all of the special benefits, but is there anything to the idea that recruits would choose that week because of their interest in UM?  Obviously could play big this year with OSU being on the road.

02/11/2015 - 7:13pm Live in Denver, went to school in Golden

I assume the comment about the smell in golden is related to the smell of hops coming from the Coors Brewery right in the middle of town, which isn't always awesome, but that's the price you pay for having a brewery.  You can go in and have free samples pretty much everyday, as I did as a student.

Denver itself is a great city, and the traffic up to the resorts can be god awful at times.  You'll usually miss the brunt of the traffic if you get on the road early enough on the weekends (out of the city by 6 or 6:30am), but it's tough to miss the traffic coming back unless you come back from the mountains after 7pm or later.

Boulder is probably the closest you'll get to an Ann Arbor setting, although for a large city, I don't think you could do much better than Denver.

08/26/2014 - 5:16pm Can't make trades

Anybody else having a problem making trades on their site?  When I try to buy shares, the number of shares is just a dropdown box with only the option to buy '0' shares?

Good to have voting back!

10/16/2013 - 1:26am They are also

A lot of the same people that were calling for RR to be fired after his first season, and who were calling for kovacs to be replaced every year before his senior year. Some people are just not happy with what they've got and just don't have the patience to let someone complete their job. Agreed that I'm upset with the playcalling and Borges in general, but damn guys, pull yourselves together. Shit.

This is at least not Bleacher Report...

No charges filed at this point, but it is still under investigation

03/27/2013 - 6:18pm That...

01/22/2013 - 1:12pm Butler

I would never want to face Butler in the tournament.  I feel like the lower the seed they are, the more dangerous they are. 

06/29/2012 - 11:03am Wow

You really are bad at math...

06/13/2012 - 2:57pm Yes

Like the patches as long as they are limited to best of the best.  Its something no one else is doing

02/07/2012 - 11:49am Sparty

Am I the only one that sees Sparty taking a step back next season.  Not a huge step back, but losing Cousins/Worthy/Baker/WRs is going to hurt them.  I keep hearing from them that Maxwell isn't going to miss a beat from where Cousins left off, but I'm very skeptical of that.  Experience means a lot to a strating QB. 

I guess I just don't understand why we dropped and they remain in the top 10...  I figure 14 is about right for us, but I see Sparty lower than that.

01/17/2012 - 12:16pm Very Impressive Work Mathlete

I really really enjoy reading these analyses that you put together!

I notice that you chose the Rivals database to use for your recruiting rankings, which makes a lot of sense since they have the most data available.  I wonder if you could use your same methodologies and Scout/ESPN/247 databases (assuming information is available) to see how their rankings correlate with future success and thus provide another bullet point in the argument of which recruiting service has the most reliable rankings. 

Obviously team success and individual success are not the same, and also you can only really work with the data that is available.  But I think it would certainly be interesting, especially as more and more recruiting data becomes available. 

12/28/2011 - 1:18pm As a Denver Native...

I really hope we draw Colorado.  But a USC/Oregon/Arizona matchup would be sweet as well.

12/08/2011 - 9:07pm Evan Boehm

Quick, someone call and tell him!

11/28/2011 - 4:54pm RR

Wait, when did Rich Rod score a...  Oh I see what you did there.

11/22/2011 - 2:44pm Fair enough

Beat Ohio!

11/22/2011 - 12:11am and I'm happy for him.  I'll

and I'm happy for him.  I'll be rooting for him

11/20/2011 - 11:05pm Different situation

Not everybody has the same policy that Hoke has about visits.  The staff knows this, and soon recruits will know this too.  There's nothing wrong with trying to recruit kids that are willing to listen.  He is just holding Michigan commits to a higher standard, as he should.

11/20/2011 - 9:17pm Please...

Mr. Tits was my father...

11/20/2011 - 9:10pm Tebow

One of the greatest college QBs of all-time in my opinion...

11/20/2011 - 9:09pm Right

During the RR era, it was easy to say that they were players that didn't support RR's program.  However, with all of the support for Hoke from former players (some of who played when Hoke was an assistant coach), I would be surprised if they are still unhappy with the direction the program is headed or how things are currently being handled...

11/14/2011 - 1:55pm I like that

I know a lot of people on here have mixed feelings about you, but you're an alright dude, Dudeness

11/09/2011 - 4:45pm RB only if Dunn

We did just get a RB commit yesterday, right?  I don't think we take another RB that isn't Dunn. 

11/09/2011 - 4:41pm Good

As his senior season has gone on, I was wondering if this switch would take place.  Good to see that it has, he has been putting up monster stats as a TE

10/21/2011 - 6:23pm Fair enough

I see your point, our depth is much more concerning at other positions of need.  Although I believe the LBs can really make or break a defense.

I hope its not true about Ringer either, he was one of the first commits this year and looked like a good hard-nosed kid.

10/21/2011 - 5:50pm Got dandruff!!!

Some of it itches!!!

10/21/2011 - 5:49pm LB Depth

I hope they do go after another LB, I really like the idea of having some depth at that position going forward.  Part of the biggest problem we have had with the D recently is directly related to depth

10/09/2011 - 1:38pm Demens

I can't believe he doesn't even get a nomination... Maybe not defensive MVP, but he's been solid and at least deserves a mention

09/27/2011 - 12:55am Ouch

Had a hip pointer injury when I was a HS senior, and while I was able to suit up and play again after two weeks, it never fully went away until the season was over.  Tough injury, and I feel for the kid.  Hope its not very serious, and he can get back to doin what he does sooner rather than later!

09/16/2011 - 6:21pm Nice

Thanks for the info. 

09/15/2011 - 2:45pm Notre Dame

ND looked very good in our game, and I think they recover after a tough loss last week. 

ND - 31           MSU - 21

09/07/2011 - 10:47am This is clearly...

...RR's doing.

09/04/2011 - 6:00pm Thanks for posting this

Thanks for posting this Irish.  Its cool of you to give us your insight into the ND depth chart.

09/04/2011 - 5:18pm Rees looked decent

I disagree that Rees didn't look better than Crist.  The first interception he threw was not his fault, his receiver wasn't looking for the ball and it hit him right in the helmet.  There were times that I didn't think he could miss his receivers, partly because he would throw it up for grabs to Floyd who would bail him out, but mostly because he was worlds better than Crist.
