in 1963, St. John was the first college arena I ever saw. I was in jr. high and our high school basketball team became the first team from our county league (Shelby County Class A) ever to make it to the State Finals. They lost the championship game on a last second shot to Jefferson Dresden. I got to play on that floor in intramural finals in the early 70's. I remember those things every time I read or hear anything about that old arena. It's the perfect place for the high school tournaments and I hope it's there long after I'm gone.

I agree Nut. That should have been 3 Nattys in a row. Bo and Plunkett had other things to say, but that group, from top to bottom, was one of the best college football teams ever. I was at both losses, and they seemed surreal.  After destroying everyone else on both sides of the ball for three years, it was almost incomprehensible that they could be beaten.

I have a high tolerance so I watched the whole thing. That was painful on so many levels. Can you imagine him being your coach and representing your university? Can you imagine being a manager had having to interview him for a job? He looks and sounds like his head might explode at any time. He must have compromising pictures of the _ichigan AD. There can't be any other way for him to keep his job.

Give em hell, Tater. Couldn't agree more. The only good wolverine is a beaten wolverine.

I feel sorry for Bosa. His first official act as a 49er was to apologize for speaking his mind. Social media is anything but.  Been to SF once 30 years ago. I hear it's changed a bit since then, and not for the better.  http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001028450/article/49ers-nick-bosa-apologizes-for-controversial-social-media-posts

We all measure the importance of things that have happened or will happen against our personal experiences. I'll be 82 years old in 2032, if I make it that far. I'd like to see the Bucks them play them both, but I can't wait that long. Waiting anxiously and pining for good things far in the future makes life go even faster than it does as you grow older. Enjoy playing Cincinnati and Miami.

So now we put Justin Fields into the same system that groomed Haskins. A guy that runs like a deer, and appears to have almost as good an arm as Haskins, and he's here for at least two years. Add in Baldwin and the kid from Arizona. Toss in a few 5 star receivers for good measure. If Day is really this good, the next 4 or 5 years are going to be epic.

Exactly what Belichek looks for in a lower round wide receiver. Who else picks a quarterback from Kent State and turns him into an all pro wide receiver? And to think we had him in Cleveland. fu#%$*&@%^ing Modell.

This is complete BS. Do you think Michigan fans would have traded Patterson for Haskins last year? D you think Patterson would have been drafted ahead of Haskins? If he's so great, why didn't he opt for the draft this year if he's better than Haskinf and the QB class is so strong next year? The biggest issue with the internet and social media is that uninformed, ignorant people get instant credibility by publishing crap. Used to be, this stuff would never be published at all.

I think JH's true market value is not what _ichigan pays him. It's what someone would pay him if he was on the open market, competing with other coaches for a job. That Civic's true market value isn't $100k because someone is irrational and decides to overpay for it. It's still a $30,000 car.

College isn't for everyone. Lots of kids struggle to make it through high school. There are millions of kids out there who don't have the scholastic aptitude or desire to go to college. Of those millions, I guarantee there are thousands who are good athletes and of those thousands there are a few hundred who are elite. The AAF could give those kids a chance to play the game without having to suffer through 3 or 4 years of  college.
