Does Michigan publicize or someone keep a list of all of the analysts and GAs on staff?  

Seems like there is a lot of talent building behind the scenes in the program.

We went to Half Acre for the first time last week.  Great beer and food. Not my favorite atmosphere.  

We hit Revolution on the same trip.  It was awesome.

Solemn Oath is one of my favorites. I work in the area and we go there frequently.  Have you had a chance to check out Scorched Earth in Algonquin?  They have some excellent beers and are always doing new and unique things with IPAs and sours.

While I was not a commenter (still not much), I was around and read everything back then.

Hey Mike,

We are in Huntley.  I am off of Huntley Road and Square Barn.  Right down the street.  

08/01/2017 - 5:05pm Embed?

What am I doing wrong?  Why can't I get the embed to work?  Thanks!

They are at the ticket office.  Open from 8:30 - 5:00.  Check the post above for the links to see the poster designs this year.  

Again, not sure why the embed is not working.  UGH!

Your work on this is appreciated.  The new site looks awesome!  

04/10/2017 - 3:22pm Smart Move

This is a smart move.  Go and see what evaluation that they can get and then come back.  

02/27/2016 - 11:32pm Have You Heard

Since you like Gimlet, have you heard Samplr? I think that it has been pretty good through five.

01/03/2016 - 10:26pm I Think That is Chat Sports

And Apparantly this is being reported by Rivals.  I just saw it over there. 

01/03/2016 - 10:22pm Personally...

Personally, I think he probably lands somewhere in the NFL but this would be a great addition to the coaching staff to have him aboard especially if he wants to take a year out of the NFL before grabbing another coaching position.

Link to App:

Google Cardboard is pretty awsome technology.  I am really interested to see where it heads next.  As a teacher, I got the opportunity to experience Google Expeditons, which is virtual field trips for students to take in their classroom.  

Check it out if you are interested here:

12/23/2015 - 11:39am These Are Great!

Keep up the great work in 2016!

12/20/2015 - 11:21pm BC Recruiting Classes

Think of what John Brown will get to do with some actual talent on the defensive side of the ball.  According to 24/7 composite rankings, Boston College has never had a top 50 recuiting class or any players that were above a 3 star player.  

Excited for this hire!  Let's see what he can do.  #GoBlue

08/02/2015 - 4:37pm Monarch List

Each year in Illinois, they nominate books for a Monarch Award.  The list is always top-notch and I always recommend them to my students for reading.  Some great read alouds on this years list.

Great book... meh movie.

Love the branding of the quotes at the end of these... "Who's Got It Better Than Us?"

07/29/2015 - 3:33pm Importing the Schedule

07/29/2015 - 12:51pm Other Sports

There has been a lot of attention pointed at the football program rightfully so...

However, Hackett needs to continue to support all aspects of the athletic program to continue to be impactful at Michigan.

Anyone know the significance of the strings around their neck?

06/26/2015 - 4:25pm Realignment

I would be in favor of realignment after each season.  Put teams in order from 1 - 14 and put all the evens on one side and the odds on the other.  This would balance the playing field and the schedules.  The East is a beast and will be for years!

 Considering Google's connections to Ann Arbor, I am curious what role if any Google and their project has in connection with this project? 

01/05/2015 - 2:59pm Detective Work

Appreciate the detective work. :) 

01/05/2015 - 9:29am Ready to Go

After the last 24 hours, I am ready for Harbaugh to annouce his real staff and let's get this thing started.  The rumors flying around are doing more damage than good IMO.  

01/01/2015 - 5:11pm Found

Found my own answer.

11.7.2 Football Bowl Subdivision - There shall be a limit of one head coach, nine assistant coaches and two graduate assistant coaches who may be employed by an institution in bowl subdivision football. Weight or Strength Coach FBS - A weight (strength and conditioning) coach may conduct flexibility, warm-up and physical conditioning activities prior to any game and prior to or during any practice or other organized activities without being included in the limitations on number of coaches.

01/01/2015 - 5:01pm Clarification Needed

Can someone please clarify for me regarding the number of coaches the staff can have?  Where does this rule come from and what impact does this have on HARBAUGH's staff?

For example: Alabama - 13 positions

Nick Saban - Head Coach
Burton Burns - Associate Head Coach/Running Backs
Mario Cristobal - Offensive Line
Bo Davis - Defensive Line
Lane Kiffin - Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks
Billy Napier - Wide Receivers
Kirby Smart - Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers
Kevin Steele - Linebackers/Special Assistant to Head Coach
Lance Thompson - Outside Linebackers
Bobby Williams - Tight Ends/Special Teams Coordinator
Joe Pannunzio - Director of Football Operations
Scott Cochran - Director of Strength and Conditioning
Tyler Siskey - Director of Player Personnel

Thank you in advance.

12/26/2014 - 11:35pm Hoke

Hoke will coach again somewhere and be successful.  Michigan was just too big of a stage for him to live up to the hype.  Look forward to watching his career going forward.  

Would LOVE to see him as a DLine coordinator on the staff next year, but realize that this is extremely unlikely.

08/21/2014 - 6:43pm Thank you for the work.

Thank you for the work you have done. I always appreciate the miniprograms even when I am not at the Big House.  Will look forward to using whatever you put together this year?

Thanks again!

08/21/2014 - 6:39pm So Well Done

Great Job!

Thanks for organizing!

03/20/2014 - 10:48am Whether He Wins or Not

Beilein has established himself as a top 5-10 coach in the country.

No other team lost the talent that Michigan lost this year and had the success that Michigan had this year.  Losing Burke and Hardaway and McGary to injury and continuing to have the success that Michigan has had this year is a remarkable accomplishment.

Going to post your survey to my Twitter PLN as well.  That should help bring in some more reponses for you.  Good luck in your research!
