He'll likely be out of eligibility by 2026, but I'm sure he'll be healed...

Kind of starting to feel like Florida last year. Offense will just need to put up 20 or so as long as they don't give up any points themselves...
|08/13/2018 - 3:41pm||META thing, but I've always…||
META thing, but I've always thought it'd be great to get the projected Fee Fi Foe Film diagrams created for big 1st games of the year in December/January. You could track draft decisions, suspensions, injuries, transfers throughout the summer.

Didn't want to be embarrassed by Rashan Gary... smart business decision.

He was fired once everything became public and it would've been a PR nightmare not to.
However, once Urban's job was on the line, I think they've began trying to prove Smith's innocence. They will happily "settle" in civil court with Smith for wrongful termination if it means Urban keeping his job.
|08/10/2018 - 10:24am||You're lucky that based on…||
You're lucky that based on both teams' offenses, the game will probably be over around 3pm. But man that's gonna suck getting onto a plane and having to turn off your phone if it's close at the end of the 4th Qtr or OT...

It'll at least give Shea a bigger head-start when he is running for his life...
|08/08/2018 - 1:47pm||That was my intent…||
That was my intent. Otherwise there could be the equivalent of "I won't play for the Browns" in the NBA and a player could just say he didn't want to get drafted that low.
|08/08/2018 - 1:23pm||Now, what would be a nice…||
Now, what would be a nice feature for the NBA to add to their draft: Allow players to withdraw their name after the 1st round, or a certain pick #.
|08/08/2018 - 11:42am||Or why they fired Zach Smith…||
Or why they fired Zach Smith only once the criminal trespassing charge became public knowledge, not when it happened.

Then don't put a return address on it
|08/07/2018 - 10:08am||He rehired and continue to…||
He rehired and continue to extend the contract of a domestic abuser that he was well aware of. That is enough to be a fire-able offense in my opinion. So no, I don't really care if he reported it through proper protocols.
|08/07/2018 - 9:21am||McMurphy seems to have so…||
McMurphy seems to have so many cards left to play...
Can't wait until OSU announces the investigation is over and Urban is reinstated as the head coach, for 5 minutes, until McMurphy releases a video of Urban beating Courtney with a Bible and yelling "I'll kill you if you talk!"
|08/06/2018 - 2:59pm||This annoys me. Just like…||
This annoys me. Just like when my wife watches "600 lb life" and they say they can't weigh themselves until they're at the hospital.
Buy 2 scales. Put one foot on each. Do addition. It's really not that hard.
|08/06/2018 - 12:47pm||I'm not locked into a…||
I'm not locked into a contract anymore, and still pay $100/month. I get that if I cancelled and then restarted my service I would likely have to enter one.
I doubt that many people end up cancelling right after football season. What about basketball? Maybe some single people can get away with it. Good luck telling your wife/kids they can no longer watch their shows because it's not football season.
Also, I'm curious if people that do end up cutting TV all together end up saving money... TV is a relatively cheap form of entertainment (about $1/hr for most people). If you end up going to a bar to watch an NHL or NBA game even once a month because you can't watch it at home, you're probably going to spending any savings there anyways.
|08/06/2018 - 10:52am||I'm on year 3 of having WOW…||
I'm on year 3 of having WOW. No contact left. I do call once per year and complain when they raise the rate. Threaten to leave, they lower it back to what it was for another year.
A 20 minute phone call once a year is well worth not having to deal with apps, internet connection to my smart TV, etc.
|08/06/2018 - 10:05am||So you pay $60 for TV, then…||
So you pay $60 for TV, then probably $40-50 for internet... That's slightly more than I pay for TV and internet through WOW, and I get every channel besides premiums.
Is anyone getting all the channels needed for football, and saving any significant amount of money vs. cable TV?

|08/03/2018 - 1:29pm||Exactly, who looks at this…||
Exactly, who looks at this roster and says we need more offensive pass catchers?
DPJ, Black, Collins, Perry, Martin, McDoom, Evans, McKeon, Gentry, Eubanks... At most 5 of those guys can play at once. Likely 4, or 3 if Higdon and a FB are on the field. Even with Wheatley and Crawford gone, I'm not sure there's enough snaps to go around... Not to mention 6 OL and freshmen you want to get snaps.
edit: because I can

I hope you just claim to be adopted because your parents are OSU fans. I would if I was in that boat...

Am I the only one that read this to the beat of "If you're happy and you know it clap your hands?
|08/02/2018 - 8:04pm||If somehow this was true…||
If somehow this was true... he fucked up by firing Zach. If it’s true, he wrongfully terminated him. By firing him, it’s evidence that Urban knew he was in the wrong. So much BS...

Unless you're Paterno, then both happen...

But really? Is the timing just a coincidence? Or is this OSU telling him to take another job now so that OSU isn't his very next job after Baylor...

Gotta save the recruiting class, so it'll be announced in November
|08/02/2018 - 9:22am||It wouldn't be the Michigan…||
It wouldn't be the Michigan fan base if we didn't try to drag ourselves down for something we weren't involved in... "A Michigan fan is never truly happy unless they're not happy". This is sadly true for so many.
Do we really think OSU is going to take a big step back from this? They have the same roster this year. They will still go at least 10-2 without Meyer. They have a 4 month head start on the coaching carousel and will likely have their next HC chosen by October to salvage recruiting before the early signing period.
I'm excited that a horrible human being is finally being called out for what he's done, instead of being treated like a God for winning football games.
|08/02/2018 - 9:06am||Great article on ESPN's…||
Great article on ESPN's front page now about Meyer being a shitty person, all the bad things he did while at Florida, hiring Schiano and Wilson. I hope that he finally gets drug through the mud for all of his past.
|08/02/2018 - 8:13am||Warriner may have been his…||
Warriner may have been his superior in title, but that doesn't mean he had the right to fire him...

100%. There is no "winning" for us now in their mind.
Just get ready for the "Harbaugh never beat Meyer" line for the next 20 years. They'll continue to be proud of their dishonored coach, just like Tressel.
I don't think this will have much of an effect on them this year though. I never thought Meyer was a great in-game coach. Great recruiter, great name/history, great coaching staff. They will still have the same roster this year they were going to, it'll still be a top 10 team... Unless the chaos of all of this gets in the players' heads.
|08/02/2018 - 7:55am||I wasn't celebrating last…||
I wasn't celebrating last week when Zach Smith was fired and we found out about the abuse. That is when I felt bad for the victim. This is now the victim coming forward and trying to bring down the people that enabled him. I am celebrating that a lot of god awful human beings are going to lose their jobs and their fake personas are now being exposed.
With Meyer's background at Florida, he should've never been coaching again. Yet OSU hired him because they knew he'd win games. Gene Smith and that fan base have no morals. Just wait until Art Briles is announced as the head coach and they say he's a better person now.

Art Briles. It’s gonna happen

Urban will "step down" from the podium after he says he did nothing wrong

Who's to say Warinner didn't tell Harbaugh? Who tipped off the media...
|08/01/2018 - 12:27pm||Exactly. Even if he knew,…||
Exactly. Even if he knew, does he have an obligation past escalating it to his boss? And if Urban already knew... Police knew... The only ones that didn't know, or have sources to publish accusations, was the media.
He could have been an a great person and risked his job to go to the media. I'm not sure not doing that makes him a bad person though...
Can you imagine the pressure it would put on OSU to fire Meyer if Harbaugh decided to fire Warinner?
Chris Ash, Luke Fickell, Tim Beck, and others have all taken positions with other schools. Will be interesting to see how they react to this news too.
|08/01/2018 - 12:10pm||And in 2 months... "Oh, the…||
And in 2 months... "Oh, the school must've investigated and found out Meyer did nothing wrong. Otherwise they wouldn't have kept him. We have such a good coach!"
|08/01/2018 - 12:08pm||I mean, they did fire the…||
I mean, they did fire the guy who is reporting it and have enforced a non-compete... I wouldn't blame Brett for giving ESPN the middle finger when they ask if they can use his information.
|08/01/2018 - 12:07pm||I went over to 11W just to…||
I went over to 11W just to see how they were reacting. A couple of fans willing to say Urban should be fired, but way more want to yell at one of their bloggers Ramzy for a tweet saying he knew everything and didn't do anything.
They'd rather see their blog fall than their coach/program.
|07/30/2018 - 2:18pm||I know I wouldn't have.
I know I wouldn't have.
Maybe there's a chance if you still have dreams of the NFL... but being a 5th year senior fighting for the second tackle spot on a mediocre at best OL doesn't exactly scream future draft pick.
I wonder if it actually had something to do with him missing the bowl game and this is the spin on it.

Gotta root for the younger kid who has more time left with the program, but JBB turning down a free trip to Paris to focus on conditioning is some dedication...

Jason Avant comes to mind for me. Most of his career was overshadowed by Braylon.
|07/26/2018 - 9:18am||Seems like it would be a…||
Seems like it would be a great feature to have a Michigan sports calendar on this site. Game times for the 3 major sports + B10 championships and other significant events for other sports, satellite camps, fall camp, recruiting periods, draft dates and deadlines, etc. Even just make it user editable like the "depth chart by class". I would think it would generate a ton of clicks and would be relatively easy to setup.

If by overlooked you mean it says right in the article he applied for and was granted a 6th year, then yes, it was overlooked.

Agreed, never heard a bad thing about Chop House.
If I was on death row, their roasted rack of venison is probably my last meal.
|07/19/2018 - 2:34pm||Yeah, but you aren't…||
Yeah, but you aren't considering the benefit of hindsight. If we had started Peters, he would've been the one our OL would've sacrificed against Purdue, meaning Speight would've been available for MSU. We probably win that game.
Peters, not having had previous injuries, probably recovers quicker than Speight, coming back for Wisconsin where he still get's the concussion. Speight is healthy for OSU, and we win that game too.

Love the description of Clawson. I live in the area, and honestly didn't know they had a high school... Thought they were part of Royal Oak schools, or maybe Troy
|07/13/2018 - 1:16pm||Can anyone explain Eric Gray…||
Can anyone explain Eric Gray's changes? Grade went down slightly on 247, but ranking went up. Which means a ton of other people in front of him got downgraded...?
But then even though Rivals and ESPN didn't change, his Composite rating went up, even with the 247 rating downgrade... But then his overall Composite ranking went down significantly. That seems like 3 or 4 different backassward conflicting changes.
|07/13/2018 - 10:59am||I mean... at least they…||
I mean... at least they dismissed players. That's more than we can say about Florida or what any other SEC team would do.
