Ruiz beating him out.  It's about getting the best 5 guys on the line that best fit the needs of the team.  I don't think Cole returned to just play C.

12/19/2016 - 2:17pm You do realize-

that a 9 win big ten season is only going to net state 17 win (most likely).....I guess it would depend on how they play down the stretch and B10 tourney....They are in trouble...

12/19/2016 - 2:15pm Izzo can't get....

out of his own way right now.  Yes, they are in trouble losing Schilling and now Bridges.  However, he insist on playing all of these "weird guys" when he doesn't need to.  His starting line up yesterday featured 3 guys that simply can't score (Tum Tum, Ahrens and Goins), while he has Ward and Winston sitting on the bench.  Unless Bridges comes back soon and Izzo realizes his only prayer is to give his FR the bulk of the minutes his NCAA streak is coming to a screaching hult....  The offense is brutal to watch right now.

12/13/2016 - 2:37pm Commitmas-

This might end up being my favorite Commitmas ever!

12/02/2016 - 1:07pm Green's Reputation-

No one else in the league gets called for that.

01/06/2016 - 3:00pm David Long-

With the addition of David Long does that end the recruitment of Vert??  I would have to assume so....

07/02/2015 - 12:43pm Do we have 40

schollies available this year??  Seriously, how are we going to find the room for everyone?  We can only go to 25 per year, correct? 

06/10/2015 - 11:17am Potential O-Line class

Swenson, Onwenu, Davis and Bredeson will be the perfect match to nullify that State DLine class.  Hopfully we can land Davis and Bredeson.

05/09/2015 - 10:42am Pride Comes before the fall...

I think Coach Dantonio is going to be eating his own words soon.  

03/29/2015 - 7:21pm Michigan State

was in the final 2 for Jabari Parker and Cliff Alexander so clearly it paid off for them.  Hopefully we have the same outcome!

02/05/2015 - 9:36pm Daelin Hayes

Is he really playing HS FB back in Ann Arbor?! If so, why is this 5-star not getting mentioned?

12/23/2014 - 12:49pm The next 45 days

are going to be epic (hopefully).....Need 10-11 recruits in 35-40 days.  Should be extremely entertaining!

12/18/2014 - 10:41am I've heard-

that there are no longer academic standards and Jimmy gets to renovate the bathroom....

11/30/2014 - 10:53am They want


11/25/2014 - 10:28am Fall Off-

There is no reason for a fall off.  The fall off was in large part due to Rich Rod not recruiting the O and D lines effectively.  If there is one thing that Hoke and Co have done is recruit.  We have a lot of depth in most position groups.  The key to Harbaugh will be to develope a QB out of Malzone, Speitght or Morris. 

11/12/2014 - 1:08pm 27 for 27-

That was a sweet run by Fitz when he broke the one carry for 3 yards. 

11/11/2014 - 3:41pm Exactly why-

it's ok for M to pay $7M (plus if needed) to a HC that will basically provide a guarantee to revenue.

11/11/2014 - 1:47pm It's basically-

Jim or bust right now.  It's all or nothing in my mind.

11/07/2014 - 12:40pm Ahh-

yea-  apparently I didn't read!  Thanks E!

11/07/2014 - 12:07pm This is a major issue going forward-

Short term-  fans literally are scared of wins.  We love to see our team do well, but we are affraid that a wins could lead to more time for Hoke.

Long Term-  If Hoke is retained we are all going to become less invested.  We'll watch Michigan Football, but we just won't be as fanatic about it.  Less people in the stands, less people who really care.

Hoke's a great guy, but win or lose these last 3 he needs to be sent packing.

11/07/2014 - 11:56am Bacon said-

that he believes Jim Harbaugh to Michigan is 50/50 this morning.  I never heard him say he would be against it....but I'm at work and couldn't listen to it all.  50/50 isn't bad...

If Hoke is retained not only will this class suck, so will next years class.  Michigan must fire Hoke or this is just going to get worse. 

11/07/2014 - 10:37am I've heard

Bacon say that he went to grade school with Jim.  They played sports together at a young age.  I don't know as if i have ever heard his say, "Jim is my friend".  We all went to elementary school with many, but it doesn't make us friends 30 years later.

11/03/2014 - 6:47pm I hear ya

However is it required to have a new AD to hire a coach?? Maybe the AD comes in after the coach so that he doesn't take flack for the next HC if he doesn't work out or his name isn't Harbaugh....

11/01/2014 - 10:02am He also said Hoke

Was the right hire......dez was on that committee wasn't he?

10/29/2014 - 6:17pm Kalis and Braden

Are his examples!!???!?! WTF.... Sad.

10/22/2014 - 8:42am Love Sam-

I'm sure he knows more than any of us on this board.  However, Brandon could be canned and replaced in the next week.  There is more than enough time to give him the axe and still land Harbaugh. 

10/09/2014 - 10:14am There is a conspiracy...

There is a conspiracy....

06/29/2014 - 12:19pm Apparently

I will not be needing my seatbelt this week!

04/15/2014 - 6:28pm Roe

To be fair to Roe he did have micro fracture surgery before he hit campus. The dude retired in college because he couldn't even walk without pain. He had a number of procedures on both knees.

03/06/2014 - 1:09pm I've got to be honest-

Every time i read an article or see a piece by ESPN or CBS on this beautiful little girl's fight and the love and support Payne provides to her an her family i just lose it.  Tears every time.  They are fighting a huge up hill battle and they all have such positive outlooks.  I'm proud of Payne for being there for them through such a touch time.  I just pray she wins this battle.

01/30/2014 - 8:32am Just ask-

Cam Newton!

01/30/2014 - 8:27am "Family Decision"

is what Sam Webb is saying.  Sounds to me like his parents want him to go to Michigan, but he feels more comfortable at State.  Interesting conflict.....

12/26/2013 - 10:07am Brian Kelly or Urban Meyer-

At least when the Lions continue to lose we can relish the fact that ND or OSU lost their HC!

12/03/2013 - 1:31pm You Seem to Forget Quickly-

where was State just last year??  State is GREAT defensively this year, no question.  However, their recruiting doens't and won't allow them to be consistantly good.  They are losing 7 starters, most of all will be NFL players.  They are losing their defensive guru.  They most certainly will take a step back. 

You comment like they've been getting double digit W's every year.  They were average a year ago and lose a ton.  They have done a great job coaching up players. 

12/03/2013 - 10:16am STATE could-

fall off of a cliff next year.  They con't have the recruiting to remain consistant.  They are likely losing 7 from their defense and more importantly Narduzzi (hopefully).  State could easily be a 6-6 team next year. 

If our OL gels (i know, I know) we could be looking at a season like State is having this year.  We need to start winning on the road....i think that happens with maturity and we will start to see that next year.  ALSO- we just seem to have ND's number lately.  Devin will go for 450 yds on them and our D is going to make a mightly leap forward next year. 

11/14/2013 - 2:12pm Hello: LANE KIFFIN open thread

Welcome home Lane, welcome home.

11/14/2013 - 2:10pm Al-

I would like to thank you for my DUI. 

11/14/2013 - 1:21pm This is clearly-

due to the incompetence of FUNK and BORGESS.  Seriously.  They've made our program look like garbage this year.  I would not be suprised if we lose Peppers and a couple of others b4 national signing day. 

11/11/2013 - 1:13pm Anyone asking for Gardner

to be benched is crazy IMO.  Yea, he's missing some plays out there.  However, WTF is he supposed to do.  He's getting killed out there, no time, his team can't run the ball.  Do you think Shane Morris would step in and do any better?  Hell no is the answer.  And it is MUCH to do with play calling.  I agree FUNK is awful.  And don't forget Al Borgess is DG's QB coach.  So the blame for DG can fall on Borges' dumass as well.

11/07/2013 - 9:36am No Doubt-

Development is a major concern.  When I think of all of the true FR that have played the last couple years I don't see any of them that have improved.  They are still the same players....Morgan, Ross, Bolden, Mario O, etc.  We've had serveral players that have looked fantastic for a true FR, then come their SO and JR years and they are barely least not what you hoped they would be.

11/07/2013 - 9:00am Thanks Rosey-

Wow-  maybe youth is a major issue.....I think i only counted 25 JR and SR's on scholarship...

11/07/2013 - 8:48am Can anyone-

tell me where i can find the break down of scholarship players by class?  I know we have a ton of FR and SO, but what are the real #'s??  I know we are young, but I am honestly sick of hearing our coaches through youth out constantly as an excuse.

11/07/2013 - 8:37am Plus Martinez is out-

so, you are correct. This will give Mattison a great chance to work on that 3 man rush.

11/03/2013 - 9:51am I agree completely-

Mattison should be receiving as much heat as Borgess and Funk.  I think his absolute lack of aggressiveness is insane.  Everyone ends up complaining about how our CB's and Safeties can't cover......well, it's because they have to do it for 10 seconds because Greg is bringing 3 and 4.  MSU's secondary looks great because they opposing QB has no time and is constantly getting drilled.

11/03/2013 - 9:45am MSU is a good team-

who's offense couldn't do anything vs Purdue's D.  What do we expect out of this team, below average?

10/18/2013 - 11:05am WHAT!?

Our secondary is getting toasted because when he sends 3 or 4 they hvae to cover too long because our 3/4 man rushes aren't getting home.  Look at the #'s.  Our secondary has PLENTY of talent.

10/18/2013 - 10:57am exactly-

why the hell are people down voting the poster for brining up a great point.  Mattison D gave up a ton of points to a sub-average team with a true FR QB.  He definitely should be shouldering some of the blame.  I think we have the playmakers on D to be a dominate defense, but for some reason the coaches keep them held back with conservative calls.  LET IT FLY!

10/18/2013 - 10:55am I completely agree-

Our offense obviously isn't what we had hoped it would be.  So, that means our defense needs to REALLY step up.  Our D is infinitly better when we bring heat.  So, why aren't we doing it more.  The play that sticks out to me was in the first QTR when we rushed 3 guys inside of our own 10.  WTH was that play call, awful.  Here on out we need to keep the heat coming on a more consistant basis.

10/11/2013 - 10:57am They have

the kind of team that loses to IU and UCF.....
