It looks like his signing bonus is structured as a yearly "retention bonus" so its not like the school could attempt to recoup a pro-rated portion of that - which would be unlikely even if he was paid a signing bonus if they ever wanted to hire another high profile coach again.  On the other hand the thought of Urban Meyer in shackles being forced to coach for another 5 years is glorious.

Go to a lice salon.  It's the best $200 you will ever spend.  Now every time there is an email from the school warning about a case of lice its like PTSD and our daughter knows the routine.  Mom and dad are going to stare at my scalp with the phone flashlights for 15 minutes while I watch TV.

Is this coin operated?  If I click on beveled guilt am I able to read more?

You see Johns at the end of the game and he actually looks like a freshman.  Compare that with how confident and comfortable Brazdeikis looks out there.  Guy was in control of his game tonight, but as a Freshman my mind is blown.  Who was the last guy we had that polished and athletic that early?

If Alabama did install certain offensive concepts from RR I'm sure they would still be executing them with their normal, run-of-the-mill 5 star talent.  

11/12/2018 - 11:13am I agree with his take as…

I agree with his take as well.  I'd like to see Brohm stay even if that means them keeping Karlaftis.  The west is currently bad enough, it does nothing good for us to get even worse.

It's not a medical redshirt.  He hasn't taken a reshirt year so can do so this year as long as he doesn't play in more than 4 games.  It is well within the  rules.  

11/06/2018 - 7:03pm I don't think the people…

I don't think the people saying this sucks are referencing losing him as a player.  I think its more that Michigan is having a great season and obviously guys are unhappy enough with their situation that they want to leave.  That sucks, I'm not sure there is another word to describe it.

Maizen posted at least half of these.

11/03/2018 - 10:04pm No one is giving Barkley…

No one is giving Barkley enough credit here.  The guy is almost as tough to defend in the NFL as a rookie running back.  How were college defenses going to do against him?

11/03/2018 - 7:25pm Zone read has opened the top…

Zone read has opened the top off the running game, it is fucking beautiful to watch.  TD pass to Gentry was a legit RPO?   I haven't seen a replay yet but I thought there was a mesh point that sucked up the linebacker.

why must I feel like that, why must I chase the cat?

They must answer for eclipsing 100 yards rushing and passing last year.

A loss to a team that we are a 10.5 point favorite against, at home, will most definitely be a disappointment.

I'll trade momentum for the chance to get Black, Gary, and Evans back and healthy for Penn State.

10/17/2018 - 9:30pm I didn't see the hold…

I didn't see the hold against maryland inithe UFR  but after these two plays I'm inclined to agree that it was there.  Great move by Watson no doubt but it's still against the rules.  You can't grab an offensive player to prevent him from getting by you or to improve your position .  And J's argument is you can hold as long as it's within 5 yards, that's not true.  

10/17/2018 - 9:25pm So the raiders passed on him…

So the raiders passed on him four times.  I'm not giving them a high five for getting it right eventually.

 

10/17/2018 - 8:30pm You are allowed contact…

You are allowed contact within 5 yards but you still aren't allowed to hold or grab a player to prevent them from getting open.  Defensive holding is called (rarely) on lineman and it always occurs within 5 yards of the l.o.s.  My understanding of the rule is you are only allowed to grab or hold as a densive player once a pass has been completed or a runner has crossed the line, when attempting to disengage from blocks.  By your definition of the rule a defender could tackle a receiver before a pass is thrown as long as the contact occurs within 5 yards.

10/17/2018 - 6:25am That or get off 96 in either…

That or get off 96 in either Williamston or Webberville.  Straight shot down Grand River and It really isn't more than a few minutes longer when there is no traffic.  There is a shuttke run out if Hannah Plaza by Pizza House I believe.  It is free and drops off right by the stadium.  A few other places run shuttles but the Roadhouse one charges $5 I think.

10/11/2018 - 7:18pm And he doesn't have time to…

And he doesn't have time to diagnose that during the play because he makes the move before the receiver at the top enters his break.  So he either knew that route from film or just made a fortunate decision.

10/11/2018 - 7:16pm What I really want to know…

What I really want to know is if watson knew the pick was coming from the receiver running the crossing route from the top of the screen.  If he did bravo for stepping inside cause he's toast if he stays on the outside hip.

10/01/2018 - 9:08pm Brian has been lamenting…

Brian has been lamenting about Gary not starting with his speed rush and then going to a power rush.  I've been wondering if he is shying away from that forceful contact with arms fully extended because of the injury.  If it's limiting his pass rush moves it would go a long way to explaining why he's been somewhat underwhelming this year.

Diagonal blue is most likely the poster formerly known as Maizen.  He is a dick who passive-agressively trashes recruits in their hello posts.  This site is a worse off for his presence.  

09/19/2018 - 8:43am He's just mad he spent…

He's just mad he created and spent an entire thread railing on DPJ and then of course he has himself a game.  Then he spent an entire thread telling everyone how Dax Hill was going to Alabama and Sam Webb was full of shit for even suggesting Michigan had a legitimate shot at getting him.   I think we can expect everything he posts to be dumb and/or factually incorrect from this point on.

$7.50 for the collector cup.  Of water.  Insanity.

09/17/2018 - 3:25pm I too only make it to one…

I too only make it to one game a year, and this was the game because I have kids and really don't want to drop $150 a ticket for them to lose interest by halftime.  Being back in A2, the walk to the stadium, the pregame - thats what it is all about.  But this game fucking sucked.   We left after the third quarter because it was unbearable sitting there roasting while time out after time out and commercial after commercial stopped play.  The most unenjoyable live sporting experience of my life.  Maybe next year I'll do all the stuff I love and go watch the game at a bar.  It's sad for me that the game itself is ruining the game day experience.

09/12/2018 - 10:26am Pizza Bob's is great.  We…

Pizza Bob's is great.  We always do the Brown Jug prior to games because parking is easier that side of town and the walk is still only about a mile.  Plus you get the added bonus of walking through frat row and seeing a ton of super drunk college students - always a nice trip down memory lane.  Dominick's is another good spot right by the business college, again parking near there is easy and its a quick walk up to state street from there.

09/06/2018 - 3:57pm I'm guessing by the number…

I'm guessing by the number of comments in this thread you are in the minority.  This post is 1000x better than another one about our left tackle situation.

09/04/2018 - 11:35am I just commented below…

I just commented below before reading this but lack of urgency in the 4th quarter combined with questionable use of time outs in previous games (end of half, end of games) are not single game errors.  I would laugh at another team's coach if they consistently botched these things on a regular basis.  

I give the staff a pass on the QB situation the last three years - they made the best of what they had.  The oline issues should have been addressed by now, with 3 star recruits if no one else was willing to commit.  If you don't even have a plausible option right now at tackle it is 100% a recruiting failure.

09/04/2018 - 11:31am I'm usually last in line at…

I'm usually last in line at the torch and pitchfork sale but the clock management issues are concerning.  I understand if it is a backup QB coming in because of injury and their comfort level calling plays isn't the same, but our offense in the last half of the 4th quarter was not good despite the late TD.  The huddling, not getting snaps off until under 10 seconds on the play clock.  It's a miracle we got the last possession to have a chance to tie the game.  Out of all the problems with the football program this is the one to me that shouldn't exist - running a hurry up offense.   Jim Harbaugh isn't dumb, he isn't a bad coach.  Was he botching time management issues at his previous stops?  I'm not smart enough regarding football strategy to comment on offensive line play but conserving time on the clock shouldn't be overwhelming for the coaches we have on staff.  The crossing route to Gentry with 1:30 to go pushed me over the edge.  They spent 15 seconds of game time after a first down getting the play off, then ran a play short of the sticks where our guy was going to get tackled in bounds if completed.  If you aren't ready to get a play off immediately at that point then spike the ball.  Time was more important than having an extra down at that juncture.

08/27/2018 - 5:00pm I would imagine those two…

I would imagine those two guys are prepared enough that the staff would rather they take no contact at this point to get as close to 100% as possible.  They are two very good, important players.  Not surprised they were held out of drills if they had minor boo boos.

08/25/2018 - 2:11pm My bet is Punt/Counter Punt…

My bet is Punt/Counter Punt.  Begin speculation as to who is leaving.

08/25/2018 - 10:55am Probably realized after the…

Probably realized after the summer that he not only had no chance to play but also wasn't going to get any reps, as I'm sure Michigan is more focused on developing their younger guys.  But, yeah, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to look at our QB depth chart and move on to another option in the first place.

Offensive line looks "tremendous".  It's like he knows just what we want to hear.

08/24/2018 - 7:42am Dude is going to get picked…

Dude is going to get picked apart in every press conference this season.  He can "no-comment I'm only answering questions about football" until he's blue in the face but until he responds to questions regarding the investigation report he isn't going to get an inch of wiggle room in front of the media.  They gonna lock all the national press out of his post-game pressers?  Because that is the only way he's going to be able to talk about football.

I agree with this take.  He is either resigning or the BoT is going all in on the Meyers.

08/22/2018 - 4:02pm If he's "stepping down" it…

If he's "stepping down" it would make sense.  Or the University is throwing full support behind the two of them and clearing their good names.  Either would make sense, latter is more likely.

Is it sad that this graphic is making me realize how irrelevant we have been for the last 12 years?

08/09/2018 - 9:49pm I the black levels are…

I the black levels are outstanding, the glare is the only real drawback.  I'll cry when my 65" plasma goes.  I have a hard time watching movies on an led because of the soap opera effect.  Some ppl don't see it but it drives me crazy.  It has something to do with the way the processor smoothes the picture quality.  I dont know but I Kno I hate it.

08/09/2018 - 9:45pm Samsung is great.  Do not…

Samsung is great.  Do not under any circumstances get an LG led.  The screen will go within 2000 viewing hours.  The Panasonic plasmas were tanks, they just don't make things like they used to.

The quoted text says the "pictures are from 2010", the phone wasn't made then so what they are saying to disparage her is not true.

07/20/2018 - 9:18am Because it allows the person…

Because it allows the person the leave something behind as a legacy.  People with a lot of money tend to want to build things and leave a mark before they pass - so do all people but they may not have the means to do so.  Do you have an issue with Mott Children's Hospital being named after C.S. Mott?  You realize that many of the things built on campus carry the names of donors, right?  Giving anonymously is a beautiful thing, but so is giving even when something is named in honor of the donor.  I'm grateful for their support of something I love.  Michigan athletics and academics would not be where they are without the support of wealthy alumni and supporters.

07/14/2018 - 10:29pm I have one and there's never…

I have one and there's never been a thing on it that has needed to be repaired that I couldn't do myself and I'm not super handy but can use a wrench and screw driver.  As long as the motor and electronics are sound they are pretty simple machines.

07/14/2018 - 8:38pm Precors are good, I have a…

Precors are good, I have a Nordictrack commercial 1750 that's lasted me 8 years averaging 30 miles a week on it.  Get something with a good motor and learn how to replace small bolts yourself because things will break.  As long as it's not the motor they are pretty easy dyi projects.  Usually $1000-$1500 will get you something dependable unless you want bells and whistles.  

07/14/2018 - 8:13am The trajectory of that group…

The trajectory of that group of boys from the beginning of season 5 to the end of season 6 is incredible.  It's a pretty fatalistic story line from where they start to where they end up, with the exception of Namond.  

06/29/2018 - 10:11am Is making fun of MSU for…

Is making fun of MSU for developing talent an actual thing?  Making fun of Mork for being an ass-hat sure, I'm there on that one.  Reality is MSU has done more with less "stars" than about any other team in the country, I don't really know what there is to make fun of in that regard.  Slightly jealous of their success (on the football field) in all honesty.

06/13/2018 - 10:32am It's probably worse for the…

It's probably worse for the West division than for the East but it increases the chances of another L on the schedule (assuming you are still scheduling 1 quality out of conference game already).  If we go 10-2 with the second loss as a 5th conference away game at Iowa you may not think the nine game schedule is such a good idea, at least while other conferences are choosing to play 8.

06/06/2018 - 8:21am I have to disagree with the…

I have to disagree with the posters recommending to get a new puppy ASAP.  If it works that is great, but making a decision based on emotion usually leads to trouble (or bad decisions).  Our boys were together for 12 years and it took a couple weeks for our younger dog to get into a new routine, one that he is currently thriving in.  I will wait until he has passed before we consider adding a new dog to the household.  If your younger dog is actually young, then wait a few months for the emotions to settle down then decide if the timing is right.  In our case our "younger" dog is actually pretty old so it didn't seem fair to introduce a new dog into his life during his twilight years.  

06/02/2018 - 10:07am The regents still have to

The regents still have to approve any deal that the AD negotiates, right?  So just asking might not be the most effective way to fast track any raises for his assistants, this however would probably get their attention.
