It allows people to buy tickets directly and go to the game in short order (or sell back to) so it cuts out the scalpers all together.  This is common for MLB.

It was the classic Rage against the Machine that really said 13 1/2 back field tackles to me

Chalk this one up to good coaching aka #VrabelEffect which is only to be surpassed by the Johnson this year.  Moreover, Robert played a lot of roles including RB for Ole Miss and should be moving inside to play DT this year.

This is why you pay good money for assistants and why Michigan is a concern for recruits right now.

Clearly a marketing ploy to try and get drafted by Denver or by the new expansion team the Washington State Wombats.

Great read on why the kenyan runners are so great.  Scroll down to The Initiation Ceremony and think about how coaches preach "mental toughness" Yowza!

I really enjoy these articles, and wish that there was a "hot" button I could access to get a list of all of them for reference.  I suppose we could link each as favorites, but what about new members of the site?  These types of articles set this site apart.  It might be pretty labor intensive for the team though.

Nick Mangold was a 2* I believe.  Considering his NFL career I would throw him up near the top.

Comment 26 Jun 2012

Agreed.  I think he will work harder since this is clearly where he was dying to go.

For those that are curious, Ann Arbor has a Moody's rating of Aa2, which is two slots lower than Aaa.

If you looked at Urban, Fickell, and Vrabel's wives during the town hall you realized that the Blonde Mafia may have come to town.  On the flipside Brady Hoke only hires assistants that have D1 deep fryer talent.  What can you say, the man loves his deep fried hams!

Not to mention... He opened holes for Marshall Faulk and made it so that "The Greatest Show on Turf" could operate.  Horrid... just horrid.

Kegs and eggs beat you to this story a week ago.  SIMPSONSSSSSSS DID IT!

Comment 03 May 2012

"The offensive line was average, playing well on running plays, but allowing the quarterbacks to get sacked multiple times, especially in the second half."

Windows phone is where it's at.  Don't knock it till you've tried it.

I was going to block for Braxton, but then I got high.  I was going to memorize the snap count, but then I got high.  I was going to work my bench press, but then I got high.  Then I got high, then I got high, then I got highhhhhhh.
