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. 

06/15/2018 - 10:43pm Had our first son almost 3…

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. 

06/15/2018 - 1:47pm I honestly thought that's…

I honestly thought that's how they always are.

06/15/2018 - 12:57pm Wall Street needs to…

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. 

06/13/2018 - 7:50pm They don't need to be passed…

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

06/12/2018 - 2:33pm What I found was if you put…

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. 

06/10/2018 - 2:45pm If you're revisiting a…

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

06/10/2018 - 2:41pm Diaries are all the way at…

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.

04/20/2018 - 7:13pm I'm guessing the AD has

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.

04/14/2018 - 3:56pm Ask Brian Kelly what happens

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.

04/12/2018 - 10:32pm Keep in mind editing. They

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.

04/12/2018 - 9:08pm "I was wearing shades" isn't

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

PS Vue.

04/11/2018 - 9:31pm A lot of the cool stuff is

A lot of the cool stuff is going to be tough with a young one. Most is best seen as part of a backpacking trip. Have you been to Traverse City, Charlevoix, and Petoskey? It's a nice drive from there to Mackinaw Island through the tunnel of trees.

Pictured Rocks is amazing, but you gotta see it by foot. The boat tour isn't worth the drive by itself, IMO.

04/11/2018 - 2:02pm Sure, but reduced core

Sure, but reduced core temperature makes your immune system less effective at fighting off the virus from taking hold.

04/10/2018 - 5:50pm Curious why you think Onwenu

Curious why you think Onwenu needs to come out of the line-up for pass pro. He seemed fine last season, and if anything Ruiz coming in for him when he was sick/dinged up was a downgrade (remember the Minn twist thundersack?).

04/10/2018 - 12:34pm If the precedent is players

If the precedent is players lied to about impending NCAA sanctions getting to transfer... good.

This guy Car Talks.

04/10/2018 - 11:51am Yup, seemed like not a big

Yup, seemed like not a big deal, more precautionary.

Also, confirmed Wheatley broke his foot and also mentioned Gentry has a "slight" groin issue that's kept him out of a couple practices.

04/10/2018 - 11:48am Lol.
They should schedule

Lol.

They should schedule another Marquee recruiting event for our game so we can curb stomp them in front of their visitors again.

04/10/2018 - 11:46am WTF is Ole Miss's end game

WTF is Ole Miss's end game here? It's not like he's coming back whatever happens. Michigan is in a different conference, not on the schedule. What difference does it make to them?

04/10/2018 - 11:37am On his podcast Harbaugh said

On his podcast Harbaugh said specifically it wouldn't be a game this year.

Also, Ben(ch) Mason has a torn miniscus, out 3-4 weeks.

04/09/2018 - 6:13pm Same, was hoping to introduce

Same, was hoping to introduce my 2.5 year old to Michigan Stadium, but not gonna happen if it rains.

04/08/2018 - 5:58pm I think you're right, O'Korn

I think you're right, O'Korn over compensates at times, but he also never hung his head when benched (multiple times) and immediately became supportive of whoever replaced him. He genuinely cared about the team and wanted the best for the other guys in the QB room. His relationship with Larry Prout also is pretty special. On par, he came across pretty well to me, a couple cringey comments notwithstanding.

04/08/2018 - 12:34am I mean, it's like the

I mean, it's like the equivalent of watching someone's highlight reel. In reality the passing game was not ok last year, and it wasn't just the QBs. We ran the same mesh concept over and over again and people figured it out pretty quickly. It didn't really seemed like he was scheming guys open consistently. Hard to pinpoint the blame to him given the chaos at QB and youth in the receivers, but I also would take his showing in this series with a grain of salt.

04/08/2018 - 12:25am A lot of that is simply the

A lot of that is simply the editing and the fact the show is heavily focused on the passing aspect of the offense, which is Pep's responsibility. They show Drev calling good plays during the Minnesota and Maryland games.

04/08/2018 - 12:22am Probably not the best

Probably not the best leadership move, but for move, but for sure Gentry could have fought back for that ball a lot more instead of drifting away. I distinctly remember yelling at him through my TV the same way.

Waco and Happy Valley got nothing on EL.
