Born and raised in the Hall of Fame City, and now living in Nashville where it's all Alabama all the time. Played WR at D3 Ohio Wesleyan where we used to practice in the shoe to prepare for artificial surface games back in the 80's. My QB was Jeff Long, AD at Arkansas, who was head of the NCAA playoff selection committee for 2014 and 2015 seasons. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Hey guys, don't let the fact that a kicker left UM for TCU slip by you. This isn't just a kid who was wooed by ttun, and chose them from among 10 other offers. His family is huge puke and blew - and there was never a question of where he would go. This is a diehard fan who fulfilled a dream with this offer , and now has left his dream school.

We haven't sold our house in Jackson Township yet (between North Canton and Massillon) because we have a swimming pool there. We spend most of July and parts of August there. 

Not sure the milder Nashville January and Februaries make up for the brutal June and July's. Especially with the annual snow dump we've been getting lately. I think my company sold me a bill of goods using "favorable weather" as an added draw to move !

Hey Nash - we should get together with 11W "Nashville" and watch some games this year. I'm in Hendersonville.

anyway, that was my first "the game", and I remember walking out of the stadium, through the St. John's tunnel.  My buddy yanked down the navy blue sweatpants of a Michigan fan walking just ahead of us. The guy was going commando so everyone got an eyeful. Hilarious to see !

We all know how good Curtis Samuel is, and that he even started a game over Elliott in 2014, before the meteoric rise to becoming Zeke.  So if Urban prioritized having both Samuel and Weber on the field simultaneously, Weber must be the total package.

He just might be the reason for Meyer's smugness at BTN media days. (The guy looked like he swallowed a canary the whole time with that "I've got 3 Aces in my hand and one up my sleeve" smile.)

2014 showed us so much about how a team can be green in September and progress to a level that enables wins against #4, #2 and #1.  

I will never forget boarding a plane for a business trip to Japan the day after we lost to Va Tech. I thought we might still be able to compete for the Big Ten, but PLAYOFFS ? Even Jim Mora was less demonstrative than the way I felt boarding that plane. And look how that talent meshed into that team one week at a time.

I agree 100%. I could not believe he wasn't drafted - and yet a lot of guys on this sight had all kinds of reasons. I said, "go to the sugar bowl and championship replays, and tell me this guy isn't an NFL receiver. " I hope he stays healthy, earns a spot, and signs a huge 2nd contract after everyone realizes what they missed on.
