This is insane. I think it's time to move towards a Stanford-like training/conditioning program
Defense first teams usually give you the advantage over the course of the season. Oregon, Texas Tech, Baylors of the world are very fun to watch, but when their offense stumbles 2-3 times per season, they don't have any change in those 2-3 games. I'll take a team like Bama, Stanford, 2013/14 Michigan State any day over Oregon. Sometimes you have Florida where they are so awful nothing helps, but the point is I'm taking defense. Also, I could be wrong on this stat since I'm just pulling it up from memory, but wasn't Florida State #1 in total defense in 2012?
Best of luck to the kid. That's tough, thoughts and prayers with him and his family.
I'm pretty sure many schools wanted him (yours included)
Could be one reason why Nussmeier came to Michigan - he'd be a great HC candidate if Hoke is forced out.
lol, oh yeah...that probably played a small role in it too
I like I said over here (and got unwarranted negs) http://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/recruiting/2014/01/malik-mcdowell-cancels-ohio-state-ov#comment-741133
Sam Webb mentioned he wanted to go to the MSU-Michigan basketball game and could reschedule.
You do realize Michigan is missing McGary (pre season AP All American) right?
You can say that for every recruit
Agreed that the B1G needs that type of talent, I just want it to be in Maize and Blue
That stinks. Hopefully we can get him back. If not, we'll move on and find someone else. I just hope he doesn't committ to another B1G school if we can't get him back.
The pizza is horrible, yes, can't argue with that.
DPZ's share price grew 2 1/2 times from mid 2004 to mid 2007 while YUM's grew under 2 times. Papa Johns was similar (share price and stock movement doesn't always mean good company, though). DPZ and YUM both pay a dividend, Papa John's doesn't. Keep in mind YUM is also a conglomerate made up of multiple restaurants. Most fast-food chains should be recession proof and some are obviously better than others (like YUM is better than DPZ). But looking at a company's share price, especially during a major economic recession and recovery, proves nothing - most stock charts have the exact same pattern from 04-today.
That's the only part of your article I disagree with: using the IPO in 2004 and Brandon's leaving in 2010, but not mentioning the economic recession or how pretty much every other public company had a similar rise, fall, rise.
I am neither a fan nor hater of Dave Brandon, but showing stock price growth from 2010 to today? Come on. Pretty much every company from 2004-today is going to show a good gain from 2004-2007/2008 a huge drop, then huge gains.
this is true
What does this say about Fickell's salary then?
Currently the conference is Michigan State's..no question about that.
Nussmeier is a great hire. The most impressive part of his resume isn't what he did at Alabama, but what he did at Washington. I couldn't be happier with this hire because 1) he's young and good and 2) he adjusts his system to his players, something Borges struggled with greatly. The recruits help for sure, but Michigan has been holding their own in recruiting and I expect that to continue.
What's scary is that Borges was probably 2 points away from keeping his job
unfortunately there are idiots in every fan base
Michigan-Ohio State and Bama-Auburn are why NCAA football >>>>> NFL football
I don't think it's a money issue. Michigan is paying both Borges (deservedly or not) and Mattison very well right now. When assistants get paid well, the HC also gets paid well. I think it's more of a loyalty thing. I think Dave Brandon gives Hoke 5 years to see if he can turn it around, but I don't expect Borges to get that.

Michigan's Assistant AD confirmed Michigan will NOT be wearing alternate uniforms
It's impossible to destroy adamanitum..jeeze
