And don't take and use other people's credit cards.....

This is a very good spot to drop a few lines on this issue too. MSU football will have to fight off another scandal soon. Reporters have their hands on some concrete evidence and it will be dropping before the season starts. This isn't a new development, just one from the recent past that will be coming to the forefront.

Yep, and quite frankly I don't care where Ahmir Mitchell ends up. He didn't even make it to fall camp at Michigan. He almost took down 3 other players with him. Well, he actually did take down one other (Shelton Johnson).

Both, but Mary Ann first.

We lost 17.2 yards per game to our opponents in penalties, net loss punting, and net loss kicking. Almost two first downs a game. Things need to be cleaned up.

Jim, you always say that QB's and Kickers can make the most progress during the summer. Who has stood out at those positions?

Jim, with all the experience at LB, which players that didn't play last year will see the field this year?

Jim, where do you expect Filiaga to end up? Inside or outside?

Sorry, that's three.

07/22/2018 - 9:53am I should add that Rivals…

I should add that Rivals John Borton and Doug Karsch covered this on the radio last week. 

In addition, I was able to gather a little more on it. One close to it said, "he has a "chance" to make it back, but he is not there yet." So, this could go in several different directions. He could start practicing and not quite be ready, he could start practicing and do well, he still could end up taking a medical scholarship after all. It's all speculation until he is fully cleared and evaluated by the doctors and staff on and off the field as he progresses. 

Bottom line, if there is ever a young man to root for, it is Grant Newsome. He has been a fantastic ambassador of the university!

07/22/2018 - 9:16am Sorry, stepped away for a…

Sorry, stepped away for a few minutes. Grant received some good news last week. He is a lot closer to being cleared. He has one more gate to pass through. Some thought he was fully cleared to participate in fall practice. Let's just say he is very close. Rivals Chris Balas wrote an article last week and covered it really well. I think everyone is rooting for him, but expectations should be tempered.

07/21/2018 - 8:13am Yeah, that kid is a mess on…

Yeah, that kid is a mess on and off the field. He will end up at McDonald's. Davis, isn't much better on the field. Very easy to see why he transferred. Most of these kids do not belong in college.

Third out of fall camp last year for a reason.

Yes, it should be an open competition for the first 10-12 practices.

He will compete for QB1 this fall. However, expect Patterson to win it.

07/19/2018 - 12:59pm No.

No.

07/13/2018 - 3:42pm UM has officially announced…

UM has officially announced Aug 3 as the start of fall camp. 29 practices and off to ND.

What you can expect to hear:

- Shea Patterson takes control; (Peters starts out as QB2, will he hold on to it)?
- LT Battle (JBB has it for now, will he keep it)?
- RG Onwenu's weight/stamina still an issue? He is getting pushed hard by Spanellis.
- UM is now 9-10 deep on the OL and that is without mentioning Jalen Mayfield who is probably capable of playing right away.
- Perry/Martin will be a battle at slot. DPJ could play there along with Evans depending on the look.
- Collins will play a lot!
- TE is loaded with talent
- Gil or Ross? Too tough to call right now, but Gil leads.
- Uche will play a lot; we are loaded at LB
- Will JKP actually take the next step and start some games?
- Tons of depth on the DL. Solomon will start over Mone.
- P - Robbins much improved
- Who else will depart?
- The impact of Warinner, McElwain; Herbert, Moore etc
- Who is really calling the plays this year? (JH!)
- B1G media days (July 23-24) will reveal a few new nuggets.

And how he got his bike back at 10 years old by busting a 13 or 14 year old in the chops.

We will be there in force. 22 of us going.

I would not give him that much credit.

It’s tight. Gil has it right now. Long fall camp will tell the taile.

Waiting patiently. Could be a medical. We’ll see how fall camp goes.

Great cause. Happy to help.

07/05/2018 - 9:55am A lot of noise in this…

A lot of noise in this thread. Some good, some bad. Yes, 4 QB's received first team reps. All of them were evaluated. Shea is the clear number 1 followed by Peters/DM, & Milton. There is a large contingent that thinks DM will pass Peters this fall. Milton is a year away, but he will play with the new RS rules in place. Is DM, the guaranteed 3 year starter if Shea departs? Not sure, way too far away to project and too many moving parts. He has plenty of competition. Kurt Taylor? He will have to work very hard just to get to the RB3 or RB4 spot. RB4 seems more likely.

3 position battles to watch on the OL. LT, RG, & RT. RT is in better shape than most people think. RG is interesting. Onwenu needs to keep dropping the weight and build the endurance/consistency needed to keep the spot. Spanellis is right there! Hudson still has a lot of work to do to catch JBB. Filiaga is making noise and wants to play this year. We are finally 9-10 deep on the OL.

Fall practice start date Aug 2, even though some have been told Aug 3. I have heard July 31 thrown around too. You only get 29 practices. You can practice twice in the same day only after a 3 hour rest, and it is not in pads. More attrition likely? Yes, this year and next. It's just part of the process. Hope this helps.
