We ended commissioning a local guy (Grinstein's in Birmingham, MI) to design ours and it worked out great. Cost was also surprisingly reasonable.

No love for Deveon Smith? He's got some ridiculous terrorize-the-opposing-secondary runs.

Aeneas DiCosmo is certainly an early NOTY candidate.

Until 2 out of the 3 services unfuck themselves and the recruiting industry stabilizes, stars and rankings are pretty meaningless, IMO. Right now one service assigns rankings once when they first get on the radar and never updates, and another only ranks players that go to their camps.

Who's the QB? He's a big guy and gets downfield in a hurry to block for Gray a few times in the Junior highlights. 

07/02/2018 - 11:22am I'm not even remotely…

I'm not even remotely concerned about a 1.93% fumble rate, for a High School player. If you take out his Fr year, it's 1.63%, which is very respectable. 



07/02/2018 - 11:15am Yeah, not getting how 4.57…

Yeah, not getting how 4.57 laser timed isn't elite for a HS RB. Sure, if you compare to 4/5 FAKES hand timed claimed numbers it's not impressive, but how many of those ever crack 4.5 in actual formal testing? 

06/30/2018 - 3:51pm Exactly this, this is also…

Exactly this, this is also why student body tryouts are after the season starts, instead of during/before camp where it would make more sense (thanks NCAA).

06/30/2018 - 3:30pm There's a number they needed…

There's a number they needed to get down to prior to fall camp. Harbaugh has been very clear guys will be cut, including scholarship players if they fall behind walkons.

As always, To Hell With Notre Dame. 

06/25/2018 - 11:32am This interview is a lot of…

This interview is a lot of fluff about toughness, etc. I don't doubt Warinner will make the line better, but I don't think it's because he "demands toughness." Our problem last year was the line was soft, it was they didn't know what the fuck they were doing most of the time. I think having a good coach, and a single coach handling OL instead of splitting like last year, will help that. I buy the "he's simplifying things" as the way we're going to see instant improvement, not a change in attitude or trying harder.

Just fix the points system. He should be well negative now and unable to post or comment but his points total has been stuck at 511.

Is that Mike Dwumfour in the front row center? I know he played a little DL his freshman year, but is he switching back?

The second half of 3:30 games are all under the lights anyway.

I don't know what the OHL pays, but I'm guessing it's less than free tuition + room and board at a works class university like Michigan. Plus he gets to develop under a program that actually gives a shit about him as a person instead of as a piece of property.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say this isn't the end of his vision quest.

Had our first son almost 3 years ago. We added a baby girl last Dec. It's been a hell of a ride, but things sure aren't boring.

I honestly thought that's how they always are.

Wall Street needs to downgrade their credit rating again. Nothing else is going to get these fuckers' attention. They'll just keep doubling down on stupid hoping for things to blow over.

06/15/2018 - 12:52pm The guy has a history of…

The guy has a history of dismissive attitudes towards sexual assault and sexual assault victims. This is exactly what people should have expected.

They don't need to be passed by 26 walk ons, they just need to be buried at their position.

What I found was if you put in the wrong password on purpose once and then the right one again, it will log you in correctly. 

06/11/2018 - 10:06pm What worked for me was…

What worked for me was actually putting in a wrong password and then the right one again. 

06/10/2018 - 2:48pm There just needs to be more…

There just needs to be more sort options in general. We need a sort by score so people giving actual useful info (i.e. UMBig) aren't buried under 100 posts of people arguing over stupid crap.

If you're revisiting a thread and just want to see the latest posts, it's better than scrolling all the way down.

Diaries are all the way at the bottom, but yeah, wish forum topics are right on the front page like before in chronological order. It was way easier to drop in and see if there was any breaking news.

To be fair, just about every D1 OL prospect not named Cesar Ruiz plays LT in high school.

05/25/2018 - 7:13pm WR takes time to pick up.

WR takes time to pick up. Jehu Chesson and Darboh both seemed like just a guy types until late in their careers and both ended up getting drafted. There's still time for those two to find come into their own.

05/21/2018 - 9:31am Jon Runyan Jr

I think his inability to see the field last year was more due to extenunating circumstances (tore rotator cuff in off season jumping into a creek, ankle sprain late in camp), not ability. Another year in the program to get bigger and stronger combined with, by all accounts, tons of natural athleticism should make him a decent tackle. 

05/15/2018 - 12:24pm I'm actually in Regensburg

I'm actually in Regensburg right now for work. It's really a cool place. It's a smaller and more accessible city, and people here are really down to earth. The downtown is unreal. Every corner is a postcard view and the cathedral is amazing.

05/08/2018 - 8:03am Yeah, I'd preferred it if he

Yeah, I'd preferred it if he dropped a "Fuck Michigan."

05/06/2018 - 4:38pm He also missed time from a

He also missed time from a separated shoulder from trying to jump into a creek, IIRC. He's consistently brought up as the most athletic OL we have, so I agree with you, he's going to be fine mostly likely.

05/03/2018 - 1:16pm Spanellis's quotes are more

Spanellis's quotes are more damning than Winovich's. Seems like Frey/Drevno never taught the basics and the younger guys were being taught stuff at a level they had no hope of grasping when they didn't even have the fundamentals down.

I don't get it, Drevno had success playing true freshman elsewhere. No sure why he didn't think to get back to basics with the last year's crew.

04/26/2018 - 10:16pm It's ridiculously short

It's ridiculously short sighted. SUVs and trucks are selling well because gas prices are low. Gas prices are low because OPEC decided to drive the price down to kill renewables and harder to extract/process gasoline sources. When that happens OPEC will throttle back production, prices will go up, and Ford will be caught with it's pants down again.

I'm guessing the AD has prepared semester by semester course plans ahead of time with the university specifically for 3 year athletes.

04/19/2018 - 12:23pm Seriously, every time I hear

Seriously, every time I hear him speak, I can't help being impressed by him.

04/15/2018 - 4:47pm I don't mean best staffing

I don't mean best staffing decision, I mean the best thing he's done period, including landing Rashan Gary.

04/15/2018 - 1:38pm Great read, thanks for

Great read, thanks for posting. I knew he did well the one year he coached baseball, but I had no idea it was a historic type season that put Yale baseball on the map. Finding and hiring Don Brown is probably Harbaugh's best coaching move at Michigan.

04/14/2018 - 10:39pm If he goes to Dallas and

If he goes to Dallas and apprentices under Dirk Nowitzki, his hero, I think he'd never stop smiling.

Ask Brian Kelly what happens when you try to tough guy through dangerous weather.

04/14/2018 - 3:50pm I can tell you a family

I can tell you a family friend is in a similar situation and although the VA helps there's still more than enough out of pocket costs to financially ruin anyone without a huge savings account. Medical costs in the US are fucking insane.

04/14/2018 - 3:45pm "Neither did Friday’s meeting

"Neither did Friday’s meeting when Lorincz was trying to get through her statement in the allotted three minutes. As she detailed the worst of Engler’s alleged behavior, she was, quite incredibly, told to stop talking … by no less than John Engler.

“Kaylee, your time is up,” Engler said. “Your time is up.”

What the actual fuck? How can anyone be so callous and tone deaf?

04/14/2018 - 3:13pm Probably a sensible decision

Probably a sensible decision based on the forecast available when they had to make the call. Blame the weatherman, not UofM that it didn't actually need to happen after all.

04/14/2018 - 11:33am Pretty amazing considering

Pretty amazing considering English isn't even his native language. Moe'll br successful whatever he does after basketball. Here's to hoping he gets to play against his idol Dirk and gets a "nice game" from him like Matt Damon gets from Johnny Chan in Rounders.

Keep in mind editing. They didn't seem to want to feature him in general and the show focused much more on the pass game, which is Pep's responsibility.

"I was wearing shades" isn't a great excuse for running into a door at night.
