I was just talking to the new kid at work and he was telling me about a friend of his who didn't know she was pregnant until the day before she delivered a full term baby. I'm with you, how do you not notice? Not just the absence of a period either. Theres a whole bunch of shit that happens when a woman is pregnant that is totally normal for pregnancy but should probably be of some concern otherwise.
Justin Fields can be announced the starter today and the suspense can be over and we can finally focus on the season ahead. This offseason really seemed to fly by. I'm glad its over. Only one more weekend between now and college football and I get to spend it in Vegas.
Tariq Black has been injured most of his career as well. Its too bad because they are both incredibly talented kids. I know they're the enemy but I never like seeing injuries derail a kids career. It would be a shame to see the talent those guys have go to waste because they couldn't stay healthy.
Should we just chalk up injuries to at least two of their 4 top receivers now or wait until they actually happen? They have a lot of talent at that position but none of them seem to be able to stay healthy.
I can't believe this thread is still up to be honest. I read some yesterday, but I checked back this morning. Holy balls this thing went off the rails up there.
This was very well said. I think Dabo is a villain, but nothing this writer said are valid reasons why. This writer also never mentioned the actual reasons Dabo is a villain.
I remember going to the state basketball tournament at St. Johns as a kid. I also remember going when it was at VCA. I have always loved St. Johns. I don't really care about the video boards, that is just a great place to watch basketball. That will be really cool to have it back there in a few years.
I have lost all faith in the ability to get targeting right so I will reserve judgement on the new enforcement practices until further notice.
I actually kinda forgot about Shea. But yeah, that makes this even worse. And I was very supportive of Shea getting the waiver, as were most people on this board. I think the common sentiment was that we all thought he should get it, but were also kinda hoping that he didn't because fuck michigan. And more than Harbaugh its even more hilarious for the michigan fans that are all over the place defending Harbaugh on this one that were all demanding Shea be given a waiver.
In his delusional mind its one of those "if you're not with us, you're against us" type things. He paints it as him just being super focused on the guys that want to be there. I'm sure he thinks it makes him a hard ass. In reality though it makes him look like a jackass. And like I said yesterday, it shows that the amount that he cares about the kids is directly related to how much they do for him. It makes sense now why even non draft pick type guys sit out bowl games for him. By their 4th year they have no allegiance to him because they've realized he has no allegiance to them.
The really scary thing is how close we were to never finding out about a lot of the shady shit Facebook, Twitter, and Google are doing. Had one or two things gone a little differently in the last few years and nobody would have even bothered looking into it.
On a lighter note, it's Friday
This is gonna be a rough day for you
What Luke Fickell is doing to Harbaugh in the media is the adult version of what he did to that poor kid in the wrestling video. In a battle of wits he has Jimmy so outmatched its not even fair yet he's taking the fight to a playing field on which Harbaugh has no skill whatsoever. Even if Harbaugh had a compelling argument for doing what he did (he doesn't) he is utterly incapable of explaining it to rational human beings. I will gladly take this drama for the rest of the offseason.
And I thought the "THE" trademark thing was stupid until I saw how much it bothered michigan fans. Now I'm on board completely. I now want to get one of the hats or the shirts just to really piss everyone off.
He's probably just butt hurt because Urban gave his colleague Pete Thamel all kinds of access which allowed him to write really high quality insider type stories while Forde, who has significant seniority over Thamel both at Yahoo and overall, was stuck with his weekly bullet pointed listicles.
I've used the site several times as have many of my friends. I've never heard of anybodies info being stolen. DHgate is basically a chinese version of Amazon. Shipping takes a while so if you order today you won't have it by the first game, but the prices absolutely can't be beat. I would recommend it.
Its my understanding that the NCAA very rarely denies a kid when the school he's transferring from signs off on the immediate eligibility waiver. Thus anything other than signing off is in fact hindering. So Harbaugh and michigan can say whatever they want publicly but they didn't sign off officially. That could also be why they want Harbaugh saying as little as possible.
You're right. This is exactly the kind of shitty attitude that lead to michigans downfall. Hopefully the upperclassmen set this kid straight real quick.
I read the Forde article. It was garbage. It was one of those "bash Urban for clicks" articles but really had no substance.
Luke Fickell's comments are awesome. And its damn time someone called out Harbaugh for that shit. And I highly doubt Jimmy understands it or is even capable of understanding, but this is how he loses locker rooms. Ryan Day sent a waiver in support of Blue Smiths immediate eligibility. That tells the kids in the locker room that he actually cares about them and that he's got their back even when they are no longer of use to him. Jim Harbaugh exiling that kid and refusing to support the transfer says the exact opposite. The kids in his locker room now know that he only cares about them commensurate to what they provide him. Which of those two coach types are kids going to play harder for? No wonder half of michigans team sits out their bowl game every year. By the time they're 4 years deep they know better than to put their bodies on the line for that jackass.
Thats the part that sticks out to me. Theres way too much we don't know about the missed practice to really make a call on that. But that a teammate felt compelled to troll him like that is the big concern. I don't think that kind of trolling happens to guys that are well liked.
I almost forgot about Tate there for a while. I wonder what his sister is up to...
At 6 AM on monday I am comfortable in saying this will be the biggest understatement I see all week.
Wow, and they're leaving the wife and kids to fend for themselves. I hate the Twins more than the Astros now.
They might have some competition from Tennessee and Notre Dame but that would be a fun one. I'm not great at math so I'll leave it up someone else to figure out how to calculate that kind of thing.
How much playing time did the third stringer get? Does he deserve a ring? Bryant stayed and practiced with the team. People want to act like he threw a fit and walked away. Thats not at all what happened. He lost his starting job fair and square but was still eligible to redshirt. Lawerence being a true freshman, its unlikely Bryant ever would have played again at Clemson. He took the redshirt so that he could transfer after the season. Thats called a business decision, and a smart one. But it doesn't negate what he did for them. He was as much a part of that team as anyone.
Haskins showed some speed a few times last night. That was my biggest takeaway from it. There were a few times he scrambled and I couldn't believe how fast he was moving.
As far as being the most annoying fanbase, I have been getting messages from michigan fans with the link to that article since it came out. I respond to all of them by pointing out that someday they might be good again and they too can be one of the most annoying fanbases. Which of course proves the article correct. But fuck them, Go Bucks!
