Cardale made his announcement a while back. Braxton will have his announcement next week. What about JT?
Harbaugh will accept verbal commitments from 30-40 kids this year and then unofficially filter out the lower-rated kids prior to Signing Day.
I'm a 140.6 guy who's training harder than ever now that I've hit what some would call the "Masters" division. I have a lot of respect for you guys that do ultras as it's something I've never attempted. When I lack a little motivation, I ask myself, "What have I done to beat Michigan today?" I am fortunate enough to have a nemesis (that I frequently beat) from that awful state, so that question really hits home. It helps me train on days when I'd rather do anything but that, and it helps me dig deep on race days. If you struggle (and who doesn't at this type of event???), clear your head and find that happy place, and maybe, just maybe it's knowing that what you're doing right there and then is far superior to what anyone from that lousy mitten state would do. Push on! One step after another! Do the Buckeye state proud! Go Bucks and O H!!!
Don't remind me of the offseason going into the 2003 season...
Improvement by by the offense doesn't even factor in how long many of those 3rd downs were against Bama.
I really dislike the weak scheduling. A team doesn't develop if they beat up on the Little Sisters of the Poor and lose to a couple really good teams. A team that faces challenges and overcomes them reaches their potential. Until then, Thad's teams will not get as far in the Big Dance as they could.
Then we better start going for two more often! Of course, only because we can't go for three!!!
Looks like a couple were _issed.
Ridiculous to be labeled a PED. Only place where X is going to help Spence is in the bedroom! If the Big Ten wants to crack down on that, better test all the coaches for Viagra!!!
The quoted record is "within the Big Ten." The early ga_es were outside the Big Ten, although the losses from a century ago still hurt. While both tea_s have been _e_bers of the Big Ten, _ichigan has a one ga_e advantage - until Saturday.
Ti_e to even the Series within the Big Ten! In Big Ten Conference play, _ichigan leads the series 46–45–4 (per Wikipedia.) Saturday can _ake that all square.
Players don't blossom due to redshirting. They redshirt because they need a year of physical/mental maturity. Players blossom on the field - in the Shoe!!!
With Delany diluting the quality of the B1G with Maryland and Rutgers, football teams with playoff ambitions need to avoid this stinkers. Realign similar to European futbol relegation. OSU joins MSU, Nebraska, Wisky, and ... well that's the power division. Put everyone else in a minor division. Teams play round robin in their division with a conference championship. I'd rather see two games against decent opponents rather than these new "demographics" teams.
We lost any room for error when the B1G added Maryland and Rutgers. Only way to counter that is with better non-conference opponents. It's the same thing next year with Va Tech as the highlight and now Wisky or Nebraska (prior to the championship game). Next year's team will be amazing, but they can't afford a slip-up even once.
Texas announcing 10 grand for it's athletes... That's one way to get a better recruiting class!
Rooting for Louisiana Monroe to knock Kentucky down a notch or two!!! That wouldn't hurt the recruiting of a certain RB.
John Oliver covering Miss America is absolutely brilliant! The rest of my day is down hill.
With the way O line is playing, why not get some reps this week for the young guys like Meechy??? Hell, USC started two true freshmen at the beginning of this season.
You have to believe the play design and play calling will evolve this week. What would have kept some of the pressure off, Braxton's speed, is not there but JT has other strengths that need to be better utilized. Screen passes, TE releases, quick slants behind blitzing LBs... JT has already shown the ability to throw a pretty nice ball. A little better play selection and the offense will be in a position to succeed.
Do tell how I too can watch the Ohio State-Navy game tomorrow! I don't know if I can wait until Saturday!
Forget about scheduling marquis apponents like Oklahoma, _ichigan man's real question is, "What's the fireworks schedule???"
Don't forget DB U and K U too!!
Somebody pass this on to Jerome Baker and Justin Hilliard.
Don't be that asshole...
If only the assholes would read and abide by this article. Otherwise recruits will someday (or already have been) be lost.
Dear Michigan Man,
It's time you realize the hypocrisy of what you, your coaches, and your institution stand for. You foamed at the mouth when Ohio State players traded memorabilia for tattoos. You were never content that these players missed multiple games (or nearly a season) and it wasn't enough for you to see our coach shamed into departing for his involvement.
It finally comes to light, only through a third party forcing the University's hand by disseminating information, that your kicker has sexually assaulted another student - more than 4 years ago! The story has been known by many for years and has repeatedly shown up on message boards. During that time, your beloved university did nothing. Your star left tackle threatens further violence to the victim. What do all the leaders of Michigan Men do? They sweep the whole situation under the rug. The coach publicly lies of the kicker's injury and family matters. Nothing happens to the left tackle for this and his other run-ins.
I hope you feel proud, Michigan Man. Maybe this is what you sought with Hoke's hiring - a Michigan Man who will go to any length to protect his players. Well, that's what you got because we all know this isn't the first time Hoke has glossed over player transgressions.
Any iota of respect for your university is laughed at by more than The Ohio State University fanbase. You criticize our university and its lack of morals surrounding tattoos while you bravely stood your ground as a Michigan Man whose university would never sink to such lows. But what has become of your pompous university and fans? You brought in Rich Rod, made excuses for his early stumblings on the field, you sabotaged and handicapped his success all because he was not a Michigan Man. Now you have your beloved Michigan Man. His success on the field is fading. The spotlight shines brighter on his character. The complicit university has been exposed. To what do you now hail?
If Baylor loses, Stanford would move up in both human polls. Computer rankings would likely be little changed. The resulting BCS ranking would have the Cardinal in a virtual tie with the Buckeyes. Hopefully Sparty continues to win leading up to the B1G Championship Game.
