Watched his announcement to Auburn.  Heard/read where LJ was very, very disappointed. Me too.  I think he wanted OSU but family and acquaintances may have swayed him to Auburn.  But  he has   his degree and I hope he plays a lot.  His high school film was very impressive.  He was a Big Un that we needed back then.  His injury set him back even though he played great at Blinn.

And why so much time on UFM and the pack of lies that was propounded by the unfettered press, ala Duke's lacrosse team??????????? y

Harbaugh...Cheap shooters as always...(0-7,0-4)-& is certainly a controversy.  Takes the shot behind UFM's back...go sleep overnight at some recruit's house so that kid will leave the program because he thought you were crazy..Figures...refs against JH, Bad spot...truly a _ichigan -an.  I would think 62 points is a controversy.

I kept a drawer filled with his negatory comments about his alma Mater's Kinesology dept." vote to be remove themselves from being funded by the Football Department AND Harbugger   complaining that he was stopped from taking a certain class that he really wanted.  The Ann Arbor newspaper did an exposure on football players taking "indian studies  " which turned out to be camping trips and sitting around campfires.  One player from Cleveland said he learned some words of the language.  When asked to give an example he sad:"HOW".  The General Studies major evolved after the Kinesiology Dept. threw the Football Dept. out. 

Short memories with the Fab Five and the FBI located on campus.

Pro-type DTs still make a difference.  Some holes were so big inside a few of us side by side could have run thru them.  It ain't all the lbs fault.  Win the line of scrimmage...with bigger, stronger DTs and the LBs look a lot better.  We slant a lot because we don't have NFL type biggies to handle double teams or defeat one on one bigger OGs.  NOT talking about pass rushing here, nor fat slobs.  Even Landers got planted a few times.  Seems our D inside is built to stop our offense.

Never ever want -ich to win in anything.  Arrogant pricks...more than a game..."A WAY of LIFE".  If you don't get that you are a Buckeye in name only.

Born 1944.  If I wasn't a starter, my parents said, "Work harder."  Today it's belaor the coach. 

Best athlete in my junior high years was a girl.  No opprtunities for her later.  Title 9 has done great things for girls.  I often think back to what this girl could have done today. 

  1. A little of this and a little of that.  Sure liked the pick up games...just kids.

This is just a reflection of the entitlement era, not just in sports.  My son coaches and runs a soccer club with 1,000 girls.  The stories he relates about parents attempts to interfere because "She is my daughter", make me sick.  Many of these same parents attempt to be the worst during games.  Unfortunately for their daughter, they are banned from the games or asked to leave the club.  I don't see this as a sport or referee problem but a societal one, almost as bad as using a sport for a political statement.  Just play the game and shut up.

  The sunlight and fresh air shocks them and they return to their well known arrogance.  Most years at about this time the skunk bears come out of the sewers they have been hiding in since the last whooping they got back in November.  It is a seasonal thing.  I wouldn't be fact I would be worried if they weren't blinded by reality as well..

 Since I was born on THee D-Day June 6, 1944.on my bucket list too.  Plan to go next September.  Studied every thing I could about that day...saw every film clip, read every book.  Stopped the Nazis with guts and courage.  Most have forgotten that day...moved on to blaming the military and the USA for some ridiculous thing or another.  From Band of Brothers almost all survivors have deceased.  Not many like them today.  God bless them all.

General studies majors cheating???  Arrogant SOBs.  Arrogance breeds a bitter taste for Michigan Men.  Harbaugh was right about his alma mater 15 years ago.

Comment 23 May 2019

The media continues with the pussyfication of football.  We don't worry at all about the strong THC(10% and higher  99% in gummy bears) effect on young undeveloped brains but worry about contact football. Just sayin, I would rather have my grandsons play football during those brain development years then putting heavy amounts of THC in their bloodstream.  Age difference  affects my opinion here.  I   was born on THEEE D-day, June 6, 1944 as well as my former occupations...D-1 football coach and prosecutor and many contacts with forensic scientists. 

Comment 21 May 2019

After he was in the hospital all week before the MSU game he openly complained to the media about not getting the ball enough....signs of being spoiled???  Shut up and get back in the huddle.

It all depends how you define "massive".  I have a feeling those head coaches and you have a considerable difference in how you, they and I use the term.  You certainly could try to say our DTs are big...280, 290, etc. but I doubt that's what those coaches were talking about when it comes to massive.  It is all relative to what context you are using the term.  325++ would be a lot closer.  And please let's not say I am disappointed in our DTs.  I am referring to what experienced coaches at D1, SEC and ACC schools expressed as the real difference.  If you can not be moved(massive strong athletic)(/and /or stuff your blockers at the LOS, your LBs are going to play a lot better.  Too many times our LBs were asked to stop the parting of the Red Sea.  Huge gaps in LOS really let even so/so backs to look very good.  Even some of the favorites ended up driven off the LOS and on their backs.  When both your interior DL and LBs play "small" and slow the run game is effective.  What the massives do on Clemson, etc. is not give a five yard head start against our pursuit.  No hole at POA rbs gonna dance.  Dancing gives time for entire defense to make a play.

Comment 14 May 2019

A few months ago I was watching a sports TV program that was headed by some recent head football coaches, some who had recently coached against Clemson and Alabama.  They all said the same thing: When you actually got on the field with these 2 teams it was the massiveness of those teams especially on the DL that really separated them from all others....and not fat guys just massive and athletic.  Guys we recruited hard and didn't get.  That had been hard with Urban and I think it will be harder still for Ryan Day to get those massive DLs that end up first rounders for the NFL despite having the best DL coach in the business.
