01/30/2014 - 9:53am Internet sanctimony is an unfortunate thing, Brian

You can rage and rage and rage about something, expressing how you have been wronged beyond measure. It's easy to express your shock and outrage, but as the Slovin/Rubstein podcast suggests (especially 4:30 to 6:00), it might not hurt to delay judging Hoke (and some others) as a flaming lying liar who cannot be trusted to tell you what he ate for lunch, let alone a serious disciplinary matter that requires a great deal of confidentiality and privacy.…

11/18/2013 - 9:56am For Al

Have you seen or read Desmond's comments he made on espn regarding your performance and play-calling? Having not scored an offensive TD during regulation in two of the last three games, would you characterize those comments as fair?

10/06/2013 - 7:49pm More Impressed

with 2012 and 2013 than 2011. '11 had much better players left over from the late Carr era that were poorly coached under RichRod. '12 and to a less extent '13 is a combination of making due with RR's defensive recruits/players, and relying on early contributions from the young players. Make it through this season at 10-2ish, and U-M's defense will be dominant in 2014. Hell, it could be dominant when Jake Ryan returns.

If only.

07/06/2013 - 2:10pm Even so

Urbz would in all likelihood have had the authority to suspend him regardless if the number of tests he failed was 2 or 20. That's where a lack of accountability and preferential treatment of star players reflects on Urban.

06/17/2013 - 9:40pm "Everybody kills people,

"Everybody kills people, murders, steals from you, steals from me, whatever." Now maybe with these helpful signs in place "everybody" won't murder or steal. Ahh, what heights T. Pryor might have acheived has he had a reminder like this around when he was at Ohio.

Does this merit a "Goodbye" post?

05/12/2013 - 10:46pm Am I missing something?

I'm sure that he's a solid player, but he's listed as a 3 star on rivals and not rated by ESPN. In fairness Scout and 247 do list him as 4-star. Still, one player with widely varying recruting ratings doesn't sound like "stuff like this wasn't supposed to happen" territory.

Michigan Defense on fire now! (1997 vs. Ohio)

01/27/2013 - 2:40pm Interesting comparison ...

I don't think we'll lose any games in which the offense scores 31 and 51, though. The defense will be much better than the 2000 version.

08/06/2012 - 6:52pm Forget the Big Ten

They are flirting with the possibilty of getting themselves booted from the NCAA if they keep this up.

04/19/2012 - 4:48pm So, Urbs, what you're saying is ...

you're going to install a new, flashy, high-octane style offense with personel that don't exactly fit it, in a traditionally defensive-minded league. If you go 3-9 this year (which I doubt but here's hoping), there just might be something to this Rich Rodriguez comparison that people are talking about. 

04/15/2012 - 12:29pm Unless that SEC Champ

happens to be a 1 loss Alabama team, that lost to guess who.

A 12-1 Michigan team is the topic of BCS title-game controversy as U-M is passed over in favor of the SEC champion with the same record.

04/14/2012 - 7:13pm We could just go with State

it's akin to calling OSU Ohio, in my opinion. Not inaccurate but moderately irritating to the institution at which it is directed.

04/09/2012 - 4:56pm I didn't even see any 3s ...

Gazing at all of those 4s has blinded me. It's the only number I can see anymore, with the exception of an occasional 5

04/08/2012 - 9:54am A bit surprising ...

Ok, you still are.

Josh has awarded him with a 4th star!

coaches who coach at Michigan. Errr, unless another coach has something pertinent to say about Michigan.

01/16/2012 - 9:06pm Good stuff, man

With only so many "buckle ups" left in this class, each one takes on added importance.

01/07/2012 - 2:54pm They should have said since WW2

Like it or not, most tend to discount program accomplishments prior to 1945.

12/23/2011 - 1:31pm Brennen Beyer

He would also project as an edge setting LB. The 2011 class (and Jake Ryan) look to be almost evenly split between tacklers--Poole, Morgan--and edge setters--Ryan, Beyer, and Clark. Adding Ojemudia, it looks like the 2012 class is primarily stocking up on tacklers as depth is  strong on the edge. Given the experience from 2008-2010, any semblance of a defensive plan moving forward is promising. With Mattison calling that shots, I am very optimistic about our defensive prospects in the next 5 years.

Hmmm, interesting. Now tell me about the two-point conversion attempt and overtime went. THEN you might be onto something.

It was just another "isolated incident" confined to the "individuals who made bad choices on their own."

I'm guessing the odds are reasonably high that he'll be inelligble at some point before the start of next season. Maybe this is just LSU's attempt to "get out in front of it."

The winner of ASU vs. AZ will defeat Oregon 77-73 in the PAC championship game. They then go on to lose in the Rose Bowl 27-12 to the B10 champion. Also, WSU is the PAC North runner up, falling to Ore. by a score of 63-52.

"Your guys played a nice game. Too bad somebody has to lose." That should suffice, particularly if U-M's margin of victory is by 17 points or more (which I expect it will be).
